Some of them are pretty obvious, but some are not.  Where is your Avatar from, and what does it mean?

Duh.

Oh wait... some people may actually not know. 

My avatar is a pic of Poncho Ramirez (played by Richard Chaves), who was a member of the Special Forces team in the 80's movie Predator.  This was also my original nick in the early GoneGold days, and the nick certain members continue to call me to this day.

Any game that allows me to 'name' my character, this is the name I usually pick.  <---  Useless Trivia that you could really care less about I'm sure.   icon_wink

Not. I'm assuming some anime based on the artistic style.

I had Bob Ross going for awhile there but after I picked up Blackout by the Dropkick Murphys last week I found I not only love the album but the cover is great and seemed fitting for an avatar.
