15 Most Famous Female Characters In PC Games
Girls in video games blow our minds away. They solve riddles, revenge, destroy monsters, conjure, curse, remove curses, plunder tombs, and win the hearts of millions of gamers. Surely every true gamer has their own personal list of female characters in video games. We also decided to make our own to-15!
Lara Croft, Tomb Raider
Lara Croft is the most recognizable female video game character of modern times. Her image was even transferred to the screens of cinemas. Angelina Jolie, who played charming, sexy, and bold Lara Croft, made a miracle – thousands of people who used to be indifferent to video games changed their minds. Lara Croft games created by Square Enix have become incredibly popular. Lara is a real icon of gamers of the 2000s.
Aloy, Horizon Zero Dawn
She’s a red-haired beast with a strong character which, moreover, is well versed in mechanics, owns weapons, and even can tame mechanical animals to ride them! This girl is a find, isn’t she?
Jill Valentine, Resident Evil
Jill Valentine is one of the main characters in many games from the popular zombie series Resident Evil, created by Capcom. She first appeared in 1996, in the original Resident Evil. Also featured in films of the franchise. In the story, she is a member of the special S.T.A.R.S. squad; in subsequent games, she becomes an operative of the BSAA paramilitary group governed by UN. In the later games, to create Jill, they have already begun to use the image of a real girl model, and she is not the only girl, but the first girl in the series.
Samus Aran, Metroid
The highly successful Metroid game series was created by Nintendo in 1986. Its main character is Samus Aran. The action takes place in a fantasy world. Metroids are large, jelly-like creatures with four cell nuclei. They can suck the vital energy from living organisms. Space pirates are trying to use them for their own purposes. Samus Aran is a hired hunter who wages war with them. She is always dressed in a battle suit that can be improved.
Triss Merigold, The Witcher
Triss Merigold is the heroine of literary works about The Witcher by Andrzej Sapkowski and the series of the same name. In the story, she is a member of the royal council of Foltest, King of Temeria, and one of the founders of the Witch’s Lodge. By mistake, she was considered dead for some time. In fact, she survived but was injured. She is periodically in a romantic relationship with the main character, Geralt. Despite the fact that, according to the plot, she was injured and, as a consequence, has a chest scar, Triss still wears clothes with a neckline. She is very cool!
Sarah Kerrigan, StarCraft
The next heroine needs no introduction. Sarah Kerrigan is one of the main characters in the StarCraft universe and is rightfully considered to be one of the most well-developed female characters in the gaming industry. Sarah Louise Kerrigan was born in 2473, on the planet TarCossia of the Terran Confederation. She had serious psionic abilities since childhood. As a result, she was recruited by agents of the confederation and became a part of the secret program called Ghost. In the beginning, she is an officer of the Terrans (a human race in the StarCraft fictional universe). As a result of betrayal, she was captured by the Zerg and turned into a cross between a Terran and a Zerg, the Queen of Blades.
Rayne is the main character of the successful Bloodrayne game series and a not very successful movie series of the same name. The heroine is a half-vampire girl who feeds on blood. She works for the mysterious organization of the Brimstone Society and preys on the vampires and occultists of the Third Reich and their creatures. The actions of the first part of the game begin in the 30s of the 20th century; the second part describes the events already in the 2000s. The heroine has a very bright appearance and frank black and red outfit, which is complemented by constant blades on her wrists.
Kitana, Mortal Kombat
It would be strange not to mention fighting games. Let’s start with the most popular series Mortal Kombat. In fact, there were quite a few female characters in the series, and it was rather difficult to choose, so perhaps we’ll dwell on Princess Kitana who appears in most games in the series. Kitana has been living for more than 10,000 years in the Outside World, and she is the daughter of the king and queen of Elenia – Jerrod, and Sindel. After their world was captured by the Emperor of the Outer World, Shao Kahn, he took Sindel to be his wife and adopted Kitana. For a long time, she worked as a murderer with Shao Kahn until she learned the truth about her origin. Masterfully wielding steel fans.
Chun-Li, Street Fighters
Chun-Li which first appeared in the second part of the Street Fighter fighting game series in 1991 became the first female character in the series and fighting games in general. In the story, Chun is the master of martial arts and an Interpol undercover agent who is sent to the tournament in order to avenge Byson for the death of her father.
Carla Valenti, Fahrenheit
Carla Valenti is one of the three main characters in the Fahrenheit game (Indigo Prophecy in the USA). The game is basically an interactive cinema – a favorite genre of Quantic Dream, with an excellent detective script, non-linear plot, and different endings.
Princess Zelda, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Princess Zelda from the game series we all know cannot be called a “hot” thing, but she still deserves her right to be on this list. The last time, by the way, we met her in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A young girl with pointy ears like elves have can be called a model of innocence, helplessness, and purity.
Alyx Vance, Half-Life 2
Alyx Vance is one of the key, though not playable, characters in the legendary Half-Life 2 and later episodes. Together with Gordon Freeman, she takes part in most of the major gaming events of Half-Life 2 and accompanies him all the way through the first and second episodes.
Kate Walker, the Syberia series
A young girl from New York has been familiar to us for many years from the Syberia game series. Both then and now, Kate Walker does not cease to be one of the most attractive female characters in the game world. Brave, curious, and charismatic, she copes with any puzzles and tries to lend a hand to all those who need help in Syberia.
Princess Leia, Star Wars Battlefront 2
That same beautiful princess which many of us remember from childhood. She looks gentle and fragile, but in fact, she can not only resist the enemy but also lead the rebels. She cannot be called Defenseless despite the fact that Leia’s appearance is a model of purity.
Nioh also pleases us with beautiful girls. For example, one of the brightest stars of the game, Maria. Delicious blonde Spaniard who is also a spy. A girl who knows how to kill a man in a thousand ways cannot be called weak.
