Top 20 Chicks in Games part I

Main characters in computer games are so often male. However throughout gaming history, we have seen some seriously great female characters, either in supporting or main roles, and we present them to you in this all time top 20 gallery.


Rank 20: Julia (Tribes)



Julia is the illegitimate daughter of Imperial Queen Victoria and Phoenix sub-clan Leader Daniel. She originally had brown eyes, but has mechanical gold eyes surgically implanted in "The Present" to give her HUD information without the need for bulky head gear typical tribesman would wear. Her armor is also unique, having much less observable plating than typical light armor, in addition to her jets being mounted on her calves as opposed to her back. She is the one caught up in the hopes of her parents, the friction between the tribes, and a behind the scenes plan to destroy the Tribals once and for all.

Rank 19: Princess Daphne (Dragon's Lair)


Dragon's Lair was one of the first laserdisc video games, released in June 1983 by Cinematronics. It featured animation created by Don Bluth, a former Disney animator. Dragon's Lair overcame a host of limitations faced by other games of that era by tapping into the vast storage potential of laserdisc, but imposed other limitations on the actual gameplay. The game created a sensation when it appeared, and was played so heavily that many machines often broke due to the strain of overuse.

Rank 18: Victoria (Tribes)


Victoria is an Imperial Princess who was captured by the Phoenix Leader Daniel. The two fall in love and have a child together. She kills Daniel after he murders her father, and lives on to raise their daughter, Julia, to an age around 6 years old. She is then killed by Jericho.

Rank 17: Rikku (Final Fantasy X)


Rikku is a playable character in the PlayStation 2 games Final Fantasy X and most notably in Final Fantasy X-2. She is a lively, kind-hearted young Al Bhed girl with blonde hair and spiral-shaped pupils instead of the ordinary "dots" – features that all Al Bhed share – and is highly skilled in mechanics, alchemy and thievery. She is the daughter of Al Bhed leader Cid, the younger sister of Brother, and younger cousin of Yuna, whom she calls "Yunie." Cid was known for his lack of subtlety, and Rikku would urge him to learn some restraint. She speaks English as fluently as if it were her first language, often makes strange hand gestures, makes humor in anxious or dangerous situations, and makes liberal use of the term "big meanie" when she feels someone is being annoying or nasty.

Rank 16: Claire Redfield (Resident Evil)


Claire Redfield is a leading fictional video game character appearing in the Resident Evil series of survival horror games. A nineteen year old college student and motorcyclist, she is the younger sister of S.T.A.R.S. member Chris Redfield, the hero of the first game. She is the female protagonist of Resident Evil 2 and Code: Veronica, which follows her search for her missing brother. She was voiced by Canadian actress Alyson Court.
