Fun Fact: Osama Bin Laden Used To Have A Huge Collection Of Pirated Anime Games And Hentai


Osama Bin Laden was the leader of terrorist group Al-Qaeda from its creation in the late 80s until his death in 2011 as a result of a US military operation. During that time he was directly responsible for some heinous attacks throughout the Middle East. In addition to crimes against humanity too numerous to count, it turns out that Bin Laden was also a gamer, a pirate, and an anime fan.

It is hard to imagine a terrorist like Bin Laden sitting around playing video games, but it is harder to imagine Bin Laden watching anime.

Apparently he had a few anime episodes on hand, both of the entertainment and the pornographic kind. One example was an episode of “Detective Conan”, downloaded from a popular Arabic-language anime forum with fan translations available. We can't exactly be sure but, given that it was episode number 534, it’s possible bin Laden, or someone else with access to his computer, was very invested in the show.

There were also many Naruto episodes found on his hard drive, with Bleach and Dragon Ball. He was conducting research into the Western mind and trying to analyze them through entertainment. Either that or he had a kid who's a die hard otaku.

Aside from all the huge folders of anime series and games, there were also huge collections of hardcore hentai on storage. Ranging from Large Oppais to Lolicon, Bin Laden tastes ran alongside the classic Weeb.

Not everything originated from Japan, though. There are also PC games like casual ball-shooting puzzler Zuma, as well as a torrent for plastic soldier RTS Army Men 2. It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bin Laden was gathering his games illegally, but here’s your confirmation: terrorists are sometimes also software pirates.

Seeing other popular games like Resident Evil on Bin Laden's hard drive may not be shocking i mean he was a terriorist it's no surprise he had interest in games of that category, but Animal Crossing and Super Mario? WTF

Aside from all the anime and hentai, Bin Laden also had a folder full of emulators, cover art from old games. The strange thing was, quite a few of them were the non-PG13 kind, awash with screenshots of nude women, as well as pixel art of semi nude female characters. There are just no words anymore.
