A touchy topic, objectifying women as so. But we love women, and these are very capable females we have covered here as the hottest video game characters. Quite sure you’ll find what you’re looking for!
Top 23 Hottest Video Game Characters
23. Desire Demon | Dragon Age
Video Link: https://youtu.be/lFenwQKfauM?t=816
Could we have started off better?
Desire demons are quite powerful in Dragon Age lore, regarded not so highly as demons who leverage the hidden whims and fetishes of their victims for the worst.
There are many desire demons, lithely feminine forms, across Dragon Age although the first desire demon we come across is Imshael in Dragon Age Inquisition.
The first femme desire demons were introduced in Dragon Age II, and despite some of their features and that they were quite hard to get by, they left an impression for sure.
22. Ada Wong | Resident Evil
Video Link: https://youtu.be/sXKyd20_RhU?t=1
Ada Wong is part of the Resident Evil series since its beginning, a core character that first became a playable one in Resident Evil II. A good move.
Since then, she has been around quite a lot and who wouldn’t fall for a woman who can kill and always wears reds with blacks. Then, there’s Leon and a lot of action on stilettos.
Either way, she is one of the hottest video game characters around and we want to see a lot more of her, especially in Resident Evil Village.
21. Cortana | Halo
Video Link: https://youtu.be/hnkOLCwu-HM?t=28
For anyone who has played the Halo, Cortana was always there, the Android AI voice and figurine guiding the Master Chief and the plot at crucial moments. She never was a central figure to take note of though, but that’s until Halo 4.
Despite not being a character in flesh and blood, Cortana is sufficiently human and leaves a lot to be imagined if she were at least a cyborg form. Definitely one of the sexiest video game characters around. By the way, Halo Wars 2 just got a lot cheaper!
20. Trish | Devil May Cry
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zUsQmiog3k
Devil May Cry has some sexy women for sure and we think Trish should come first. She’s lithe and seemingly much more portable than perhaps the Lady. But she’s surely among the hottest female videogame characters around.
Trish is a playable character though and an important fulcrum of every DMC game since Devil May Cry 2. We think you know her. More on the Lady later.
19. Mai Shiranuyi | King of Fighters
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r22FEnFEK38
Literally, Mai Shiranuyi translates as ‘the alluring Ninja’ in Japanese. Anyone who has played King of Fighters, and other arcade fighting games similar to Street Fighter, will remember Mai Shiranuyi. And so will you.
Japanese animation at its very ‘best,’ reminding us of Chun Li, Mai is an alluring figurine with sufficient fighting skills and a popular choice for pros, perhaps for late game inspirations.
18. Morrigan | Dragon Age
Video Link: https://youtu.be/nSeRbsiK7lU?t=3304
Daughter of legendary witch Flemeth, Morrigan is just how anyone today would like to imagine a witch as – hot, sultry, and sexy. Morrigan first assists the Warden in Dragon Age: Origins. She’s there in Dragon Age Inquisitions too.
There’s a common romance chain between the Warden and Morrigan. She helps learn shapeshifting and does a lot more with her shape too.
You can get the Dragon Age: Inquisition Xbox Digital Code for half its price now.
17. Quiet | Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Video Link: https://youtu.be/sC2J4u_F5Kg?t=63
There’s something about insanely hot females at warzones. Quiet from MSGV is one of the hottest female videogame characters around, a female assassin who can be taken on as a buddy after completing mission 14 on MSGV.
A charismatic character, full of life, Quiet enjoying the rain is one of the key takeaways for most male players out there. And there are a lot. Reason enough to play MSGV, which is excellent by the way.
16. Citra Talugmai | Far Cry 3
Video Link: https://youtu.be/fR7fxBooRmw?t=42
Citra Talugmai is an important character in Far Cry 3, more so Jason. This tribal warrior manages to intimately inspire Jason to kill her tribal brother and wrest complete control of the tribe.
There are two end games and one of them is joining Citra, which does end with Jason getting stabbed by Citra while she’s on top.
And that’s just about the best of Citra, unforgettable and reason enough for almost anyone to play Far Cry 3.
Get Far Cry 3 for PS4! [Prices have dropped!]
15. Chun Li | Street Fighter
Video Link: https://youtu.be/2JEkneZMNiE?t=2
Probably one of the most iconic female game characters ever, Chun Li has been around for quite some time and so has the Street Fighter series.
Chun Li still is among strongest fighters in the game and a rare mixture of power and allure. She gets a hotter in the SFIII anime series though.
14. Lady Dimitrescu | Resident Evil
Video Link: https://youtu.be/lh3jPU8Kykw?t=58
Lady Dimitrescu is a fascinatingly talked about character today, post the release of the Resident Evil Village. She’s not like the other PYTs in this list but a lot more than that.
A tall countess surely at the other side of her 30s, Lady Dimitrescu is devilishly attractive, and we want to emphasize on the devil part. She is popular though, even more so with quite a few mods doing the rounds. Check out the video.
13. Cammy White | Street Fighter
Video Link: https://youtu.be/GUDm_PJgOus?t=80
Cammy White is another hottie from the Street Fighter series, an integral part of it just like Chun Li. She first appeared in the cult classic Super Street Fighter II. Thereon, she’s been around as a popular figurine.
Cammy is hot, more so in her green and red Killer Bee costume, beating up others for fun in SFV and looking good at it.
12. Lady | Devil May Cry
Video Link: https://youtu.be/q1pRvSZOct0?t=67
Perhaps the first character on this list that was made to be in it. Lady, a.k.a. Mary Ann Arkham, is hot, smart, fun, and handles big guns.
Although Devil may Cry mostly oozes that post-funk art, combat, storyline based on not much really, there’s something this Lady that everyone who’s played at least Dante’s Awakening will know. You do now and maybe you should check out the last DMC to hit the stores back in 19.
11. Rayne | BloodRayne
Video Link: https://youtu.be/hmUZybeW5wI?t=6
Rayne is that old-school hottie who’s gone pro. At least that’s what she looks like in BloodRayne 2002. Few remember the precursor to the popular Resident Evil series, but everyone remembers Rayne.
There was a movie too, but this lady vampire came back as sexiest video game characters in the new BloodRayne Terminal Cut, helped out by the latest gaming graphics.
10. Isabella Ivy Valentine | Soulcalibur
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNi1jjtFdao
Ivy is one of the sexiest hottest female game characters you can play with today, a popular character on the Japanese animation arcade fighter SoulCalibur, which is quite good we may add.
Ivy is a powerhouse, as a playable character that is. Some may find her a bit over the top. Some may like it.
09. Poison | Street Fighter
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyFZ5tmV4kk
Poison is the hottest thing in Street Fighter, and few would disagree, and one of the most badass female videogame characters yet.
She becomes a playable character in Street Fighter X Tekken and is now at her sexiest best in Street Fighter V. Check it out up top.
08. Catherine | Catherine
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q9vSDydCBw
Why is Catherine so high on this list? For once, we have a PYT as a beddable female instead of demons and arcade fighting queens. Of course, we’re talking about the blonde Catherine in the game.
Just so you know, there are 2 Catherines in Katherine, err, Catherine.
07. Juliet Starling | Lollipop Chainsaw
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADFM9OO4qhc
Juliet Starling is easily one of the hottest video game characters around. Lollipop Chainsaw may not be a game that you’ve played, or we’d recommend. It’s hard to transition from the intro to killing zombies with a chainsaw. She knows magic too!
06. Triss Merigold | The Witcher 3
Video Link: https://youtu.be/pfiFf-OHx0s?t=170
The one to fall in love with. Triss Merigold is perhaps the most beautiful redheads ever to be imagined as a video game character. She’s virtuous, ravishingly fit, and a sorceress in her own rights.
Triss has a deep role in Geralt’s fortunes throughout the game, caring for Ciri and providing backup as well. She is Geralt’s sexy bestie.
05. Samus Aran | Metroid & Metroid Prime
Video Link: https://youtu.be/fW2T7HVvfCI?t=161
When Baywatch meets space suits, you get Samus Aran lying around somewhere in a cryo chamber. As she does in the video.
Samus Aran is not your normal female though, she does have hybrid genetics grating her superpowers. That doesn’t stop her from being sexy though, definitely among the hottest girls in video games today.
Sadly, you’ll have to wait it out for Metroid Prime 4 although we do have some idea on how Samus will look in it.
04. Jill Valentine | Resident Evil
Video Link: https://youtu.be/V3hfmhHGckc?t=122
Jill Valentine is the beating heart of Resident Evil and one of the most badass female videogame characters around. She’s been hacking down zombies since Resident Evil started off in 1996.
We are still not sure whether she will be there in Resident Evil Village. But from what we’ve seen of here in Resistance or the beefed-up REVIII, she should be.
03. Miranda Lawson | Mass Effect
Video Link: https://youtu.be/Fnn_T89q8aU?t=127
Miranda Lawson is among the sexiest video game characters ever created and the guiding character in the Mass Effect since it first came out in 2007.
Unlike some other sexy females here, Miranda is fit and fathomable if you know what we mean. And if the perfectly fit bio-suit fails to leave anything to the imagination, wait till see what’s under it.
You can get all of Miranda and the Mass Effect trilogy at the same time now that the Legendary Edition’s finally out.
02. Tifa Lockhart | Final Fantasy VII
Video Link: https://youtu.be/eyd-yBgIxe0?t=200
There will always be females who are just too angelic to get on with, just like Tifa Lockhart in FF7. We can only wonder how Cloud must have felt all through the game.
Tifa plays a central role in FF7, side kicking Cloud in various missions and initiating some much-needed heat in their relationship, which does not come around to nothing though, yet. But we loved her fit and fair the in Remake.
1. Lara Croft | Tomb Raider
Video Link: https://youtu.be/-uwpU9hbhDU?t=225
We’d love to put Lara on top, but there’s someone else too. But Lara’s no.2 in this hottest video game characters list and she should be.
Lara Croft was probably the first ever female videogame protagonist to really show some authority in a gaming scene full of males. She was sexy enough to do that, with some PR help from Mrs. Smith.
Fans have voiced their concerns over the new Lara Croft we get to see today, apparently not Angelina enough.
And the latest Tomb Raider did garner mixed reviews. But it’s still worth playing with Lara’s new avatar.
Lara Croft will forever always be in our hearts.
Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJaoJyvH00w
It’s only recently that Bayonetta finally started realizing her potential as the sexiest video game character around.
Matter of fact, she’s meant for this crown, sexy in every single combat move. Get the combos right and she’ll be the one leading you through battle.
So much so that gamers like us are only recently finding this as among the top-drawer combat engines available today.
Few other games have even come close to the rich synergy and details like Bayonetta and if you forgive the graphics a bit, we recommend Bayonetta 1 for the pure adrenaline-pumping action.
It’s a bit cringy though with Bayonetta pulling off some seriously ‘weird’ moves – viewer discretion advised!
We are waiting for Bayonetta 3 and hope it will be made available for PC right after Switch.
So that’s about it. These are the hottest video game characters around and they are all women with at least on superpower in common, to keep you gaming hard and long. Sure there are some who should have made this list. Feel free to share your thoughts!
