Top 20 Gayest Video Game Characters

UPDATE: This list was so popular, it crashed our servers! We are proud to say that this list has been viewed over a quarter MILLION times!


Well folks, the countdown is officially over! Below you can find the complete list plus, we will be continuing to add “honorable mentions” as we find them We are now accepting submissions from readers of any characters we may have missed. Eventually we would like this to be a place where people can come and find gay characters in games. So, if you have any suggestions, please drop us an email with the characters name, the game they are from, the reason they are thought to be gay and your name (for credit). We hope you’ve enjoyed the countdown and keep checking back for more characters!

I wrote this to gaygamer.net, but I think it needs to be reiterated here:

I am shocked that Juhani, the cat-woman (known as the “Cathar” species) Jedi from “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic”. The game makes her lesbian status more than obvious just by inference, but if inference weren’t enough, there are also some very explicit references. When first meeting Juhani on Dantooine, you have the option of either killing her, or beating her to submission and convincing her to return to the Jedi order (in which case she joins your party). If you choose to kill her, a female Jedi at the temple will lambaste you for murdering her beloved one—stating that she and Juhani spent many nights under the stars together. Later on Korriban, that female Jedi will confront you and attempt to murder you for the love of Juhani. If you choose to take the other approach and save Juhani (and have her join your party), you will meet a male character named “Dak Vesser” on the planet Korriban. He and Juhani had a history, and when you probe Juhani to expound, she states that he was in love with her but that he wasn’t her “type”. Later on, if your main character is female and you have opened up all coversation lines with Juhani through the game, Juhani will confes her love for your character, and you can respond in kind at that point or reject her advances. If you reject her, she will state that she understands and figures you must have someone who loves you somewhere else. If you accept those advances and respond in kind, she will state that for now you have important business to do, but that you can work out your relationship after Darth Malak has been defeated.

Anyway, I hope you consider adding her to your list of gay gaming characters. There have been few gay characters who have been so explicit in a story driven video game.

This is a fairly well written article, except for one respect. In my analysis, several characters you added to the list seem to me to have been added for the purpose of padding the list, especially those who seem to be on the list because of a stereotype. This is unfortunate, as there are characters, such as Juhani, who you failed to add to the list who are much more clearly homosexual.

My list of those who appear to be padding can be viewed at my weblog (http://count-zeroor.livejournal.com/122806.html). I do look forward to your input and comments.

What, No Voldo (Soul Caliber Series)? Maybe he isn’t gay, but he’s probably into Bondage…Maybe with dudes…

I can’t believe no characters were mentioned from Mortal Kombat. Half the cast from the village people are in those games.

Dude, you completely overlooked TINGLE from Zelda: Mask of Majora…. that dude should be in number 1 for sure…. his name is Tingle AND he even admits he’s a fairy! Just play the game and you can see how gay he looks/acts!

What about Bartz/Butz in FF5? There's that odd scene in which he seems to be in love with Feris -- with a heart over his head and everything -- before he's told that Feris is female.

That always struck me as rather provocative.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
