Halo is a video game released for the Xbox in 2001, one of the first games ever released exclusively for the Xbox. Since then, 2 direct sequels, with the incredibly imaginative names of Halo 2 and Halo 3 have been released, as have two other games set in the same universe, Halo Wars and Halo: ODST, with a third, Halo: Reach, most recently released. 7 books and some
comics graphic novels have also been written for the series.
The multiplayer of Halo 3 is one of the most popular games played by the massive number of 10 year olds (and small number of older people) that inhabit the dark place known as Xbox Live.
Stylesrj has used many characters that don't actually exist in Halo, but are of the same species as two of the alien races, the Grunts and Elites. Stylesrj's Elites, parodying the "ee" most of them add to their names in the Halo series, usually have pun names like "Whoisawesomemee" "Very Angree" and "Thefedsareontomee". A grunt that is a commonly seen major character in his comics is Chuck the Freaking Alien, who somehow can transform into the much larger Chuckzilla.
choxorn also used characters from Halo for a while, since he had the Arbiter, one of the series' main characters, as his avatar, and obviously used him a lot. He also used the character
Half-Jaw Rtas 'Vadum, another Elite and friend of the Arbiter. A bunch of unnamed Elites also made appearances. Even though he no longer has that avatar, he still uses some ships from Halo towards the end of DYOS 10 and in DYOS 11.
CivGeneral uses UNSC's Battle Dress Uniform Armor and CH252 Helmet from Halo 3 repainted with S.T.A.R.S. decals and his coat of arms on the neckplate.
