Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transexual Characters in Video Games

Post  Gorblax on Sat Nov 15, 2008 11:58 pm

A friend of mine has asked for a list of canonically LGBT characters in video games- I couldn't think of any. Any help?

I've found that most Google results for "LGBT video game characters" Yields more than a couple of semi offensive pages. There are many flamboyant video game characters, but I'm sure that there are very few (IF any) canon LGBT video game characters.

Poison is transexual

Bridget from guitlygear also.

There as so many more actually but I can't think of them all. I'm sure you can find a list somewhere.

There's a character in .hack I think that's gay, too.

I think Kirby's bi since he doesn't mind kissing everyone and anything.

I did a search on Wikipedia and came up with this article. I think It'll help you out a bit.

I wish I could remember more myself.

I love homos.

^Interesting read. There is evidence to suggest that Ike of Fire Emblem and Smash Bros fame is homosexual.

Don't say a word Gorblax. Smile

The theory is mostly based on his support conversations/pairings from RD. For instance, at the end of Fire Emblem games, characters that have developed strong support bonds with each other usually end up married (if they're of the opposite sex) or becoming life long friends. (If they're of the same sex) Now, regardless of who Ike establishes Supports with, he leaves Tellius to explore new lands. However, if he has bonded with Soren or Ranulf, the only males he can bond with, they will accompany him. By itself, not very convincing.

Proponents of the theory also point out that Elincia and several other female characters were definatly hitting on Ike, but were ignored. (ESPECIALLY Ellincia in PoR. I actually couldn't believe they didn't end up together.)

And then you've got this piece of work. MAJOR SPOILERS. (Happy smashbro?)

Note the comments and more info section. There Have Been Flames.

Either way, I don't care, and I will always pair Ike and Soren together, because Soren's backstory is the best in the games and the stat boosts fucking rock.

Ike, unlike every other main lord in every other FE game that I've played, does NOT have a double character ending where he marries anyone. (Gaiages should know whst I mean by a double character ending; basically, it's a special epilogue for a character or characters. If 2 characters get an A support, then there's a chance they can get a double character ending.) Ike, however has no ending where he marries a women. Also, Soren says he'll never leave his side... ahem.

Also, I'd like to point out every single Final Fantasy character in regards to this topic.

damn you Eiron for ninja-ing me, I am NOT deleting what I just tyoed on my Wii... good explanation, though.

EDIT: nice youtube spioler Eiron. If that's the secret info conversation I can only read on the 2nd PT with other factors, I'm not watching it.

I lol'd about the wii typing thing. Yeah, I'd be pissed too. Very Happy I added a spoiler warning, it is indeed the ultra-super-hard-to-get support conversation. I figured that because of the topic, most people would watch it anyways.

Well, I'm working for that convo, so I don't want to be spoiled. That's about the only thing I haven't spoiled for myself.

OH OH OH OHHO!!!!111!!!21!1

Just remembered ANOTHER character from Fire Emblen: Radiant Dawn... Heather! She hates men and hella hits on Nephenee, when you first get her. She's also voices attraction to other women, like Queen Elincia. I hardly use her since she's a Rougue, and with Sothe, you're forced into engaming him and Volke is too badass to pass up.

Voltome made some passes on Zelgius, for sure. And you can't forget Duke Tanas.

I enjoyed killing Voltome sooooo much. Uwee hee hee.

Duke Tanas is Oliver, right? Yeah, he really has problems around male herons.

and lol.

Also, Sothe... eh, kinda has the look, but then again so does EVERY OTHER MAIN CHARACTER from a JAPANESE MADE GAME.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Tingle or Voldo yet. They certainly have the looks for it...

I wouldn't go by looks. I rather have more evidence than that. Besides you can be effeminate and still be straight. Most transvestites actually prefer women. (For example the popular comedian Eddie Izzard dresses as a woman often because he wants to just wear whatever he wants but he's straight.)

Which now that I mentioned it I guess Bridget doesn't count. I know I listed him as an example but I don't think he actually wants to be female, eh? I think his character is fighting for that reason. I could be Wrong about both Bridget and Poison as examples. I haven't played their games so forget my examples, than.

Naw, you can't just go by looks, because roughly 99.999999999% of all japanese main male characters look like women. But Voldo MIGHT be the exception. You know he's gotta be lookin for love wherever he can. Plus his story is based around his eternal devotion to his master. THERE. Justified.
