Do I Pass? is a short visual novel, playable on web browsers and GameBoys. It centers around a trans woman taking the bus home, and wanting to know if she passes. Using a magic website, she casts a spell to find out. She leaves her body as a ghost and reads the minds of the people around her to see what they think of her. There are three different ways it can go, just as there would be in reality. She either passes, is misgendered, or is unreadable.

Character Game Gender Journey Transfem


Bridget is a character from the Guilty Gear series who has a whole transition journey through her continuing storyline! She’s a bounty hunter that fights using a yo-yo and her teddy bear, Roger, who is mechanized and possessed by a ghost.

More Info:

  • Pronouns/gender: she/her, transfem
  • Media Appearances: Playable fighter in video games “Guilty Gear XX”, “Guilty Gear Isuka”, “Guilty Gear Dust Strikers”, “Guilty Gear Judgement”, “Guilty Gear Vastedge XT”, and “Guilty Gear Strive”, cameos in the Guilty Gear manga “Guilty Gear Xtra”.


Bridget grew up as the child of a high-class family, as the second part of a pair with her twin brother. Her town, unfortunately, was convinced that having two male twins was a sign of bad luck for the town, and would insist that the younger of two male twins be either killed or sent to an orphanage. To avoid either of these outcomes, her parents decided to hide her sex from the other townsfolk, raising her as a girl, though they felt extremely guilty about this, feeling that they were forcing her to live with such a massive secret. 

Bridget was, as expected for a daughter of her social class, given extensive training and a quality education. Soon after, Bridget strove to go off on adventures outside her town, on a mission to bring wealth and happiness to her village while living as a man, to finally dispel their superstitions, for herself and for her parents. Soon after, she found exactly the call to action she was looking for, on a poster for a wanted Gear (person with supernatural powers turning them into living weapons), with a hefty prize of 500,000 World Dollars for killing her. She left to find her target as soon as possible, and found her target, named Dizzy, already defeated in the Forest of Demons. Though they had failed this first bounty, Bridget got right back on her feet to look for new targets.

This is where we find Bridget in Guilty Gear XX, which actually has multiple possible storylines and endings for each character that the player can reach, though these endings don’t affect where Bridget is at the start of the next game. On her search for new bounties, she meets I-NO, a time-traveling musician that thrives on chaos, and quickly convinces her of her skill as a fighter. I-NO gives Bridget a list of targets, which, in a sneaky little twist, are all not real bounties. While working through this list, Bridget battles multiple other playable characters, including Baiken, Anji Mito, Chipp Zanuff. In one storyline, Ky Kiske cuts through I-NO’s façade, telling Bridget that her list of targets is fake. In another storyline, she happens upon Dizzy once again while with the Jellyfish Pirates, and the two become friends. In the third storyline, Bridget meets Johnny, who tries to fight her, and the h***y b*****d tries to seduce her while the fight. Eventually during the fight, Bridget reveals that she in fact actually identifies as a boy, to Johnny’s embarrassment. Discouraged by her lack of success as a bounty hunter, she decides to pursue a new career as an entertainer. In the first ending, Bridget becomes a waiter and yo-yo performer at Jam Kuradoberi’s restaurant. In the other ending, she returns to her hometown, where her uncle tells her that her twin has left the village to look for Bridget. 

We find Bridget as a famous bounty hunter when her story continues in Guilty Gear Strive, which takes place six years after XX. She’s finally become popular and successful enough to break her town’s superstitions towards her, and is now free to live as she wants to. Still working as a bounty hunter, but now aimless, Bridget begins to ponder her identity, as living as a man doesn’t quite suit her. She is soon hunted down by Goldlewis Dickinson, who strives to capture Roger, Bridget’s spirit-possessed teddy bear, for his cryptid collection. After losing the fight, he casually calls her “lil lady”. Though Bridget responds by correcting him that she’s a man, she does so with a noticeable lack of enthusiasm, which Goldlewis points out. Now in the midst of a full gender crisis, she once again finds Ky Kiske, who tells her to be herself, no matter what. There is another split in endings here, where in one ending she simply decides to ponder her identity further, and in the other she admits to herself that, though she’s scared of the truth, she is a trans girl, and finally chooses to live her life as who she truly is, regardless of what others think of her.

Agender Character Game


Testament is a playable Gear from the fighting game Guilty Gear. They fight in conjunction with their familiars, EXE Beast, a pink toothy monster, and Succubus, which is exactly what it sounds like. Upon release of the franchise’s newest game, Guilty Gear Strive, Testament was confirmed by the game’s team to be agender, and has been described as having “lived without the concept of gender”.

More Info:

  • Pronouns/gender: they/them, agender
  • Media Appearances: Playable fighter in Guilty Gear, Guilty Gear X, Guilty Gear XX, and Guilty Gear Strive

Story (SPOILERS!!):

Testament was born in Switzerland, and was raised by Kliff Undersn, the leader of the Sacred Order of Holy Knights, after their parents died. Testament grew up to become kind and caring, often giving shelter and supply to local children, who they always had a soft spot for. Despite their hatred of violence, Testament joined the Order of Holy Knights in 2127, wanting to repay Kliff by someday taking his name and succeeding him as commander of the Order. They were tragically “killed” a year later on a mission. 

Their body, however, was never recovered, and in reality was captured by agents of Nation A, and became a victim of human experimentation through the Nation’s obsession with creating the perfect living weapon. They were transformed into a Gear in the process, and were forced to serve Justice in her war against all of mankind. In 2140, Testament found themself facing off against Kliff, fighting on opposite sides of a massive battle. Testament’s father figure was forced to kill them, though they were somehow revived after the battle. 

When Justice was sealed away by the Order in 2175, while most Gears became free of Justice’s control, Testament was still forced to follow Justice’s will, and began working to release her from her imprisonment. When the Second Holy Order Selection Tournament was held, Testament participated in the hopes of gaining enough power to free their master. 

In the first Guilty Gear game, we first see Testament freeing Zato-1. At the tournament, Testament battles Sol Badguy after he becomes the champion, and reveals their motivations for competing, only needing one more blood sacrifice to revive Justice. Testament is defeated, but is able to use their own blood for the final sacrifice, and dies in the arms of their father figure, Kliff. However, Justice’s power is now limited, and in one ending, Justice is killed in a combined effort from Ky Kiske and Sol. In Kliff’s ending, Kliff is the one to kill Justice, and Justice realizes that Testament’s connection to Klif was the reason her power was limited. As Justice dies, as does Kliff, having finally completed his life’s work. 

Testament returns in Guilty Gear X, having seemingly being revived, which goes unexplained. Now finally free of Justice’s influence, Testament is once again themself, but is without direction or purpose. Testament visits Kliff’s grave, and meets a blind girl named Josephine, who soon becomes a target of Venom, a member of the Assassin’s Guild, as part of a scheme to recruit Faust to the Guild. Testament flees with Josephine to the Forest of Demons, where Testament meets a friend of hers, Dizzy. Josephine is injured, so the two Gears bring her to Faust for medical help. In a sudden attempt to kill Dizzy, the people of the village set fire to Faust’s office, causing Dizzy to lose control over Necro & Undine, her two shapeshifting sentient wings. From then on, having confessed to Dizzy that they’re also a Gear, Testament would protect Dizzy she went. The two run away back into the woods when Josephine rejects Dizzy, convinced that she’s a demon. This event brought Dizzy into international attention, and a W$500,000 bounty was placed on her after defeating Ky Kiske, who’d come to the Forest to look for her. After Testament adamantly defends her, in one ending, Testament and Dizzy fight off enough challengers that they eventually leave them alone, and in another, Testament, inspired by Kliff’s earlier words to them, convinces Dizzy to join the Jellyfish Pirates, and goes with them, both leaving the Forest.

Testament’s story in Guilty Gear XX begins a few weeks later, where, while visiting Dizzy on the Jellyfish Pirates’ ship, finds that she’s been thrown off the ship when attacked by I-NO (which is where Bridget finds her at the start of her story in XX). In Testament’s worst storyline, they only find Dizzy one it’s already too late, and find Dizzy dead. Though Johnny, the head of the Pirates, has already killed Dizzy’s murderer, Testament kills him all the same, and vows to destroy all of humanity in a grief-fueled rage. In another storyline, Testament runs into Sol and Slayer, who tell them that the group that experimented on Testament, the Post-War Administration Bureau, has been revived, and returns to find the Forest ablaze, deciding to die with it. In their best storyline, Testament successfully hunts Dizzy down, and finds her under the control of Necro, the more intense and violent of her two wings, frees her, and brings her back to her crew. Testament returns to the Forest of Demons, once again becoming it’s protector, though this doesn’t last long, as Dizzy visits them and suddenly loses control of Necro and Undine when she sees Crow’s Justice clone. Testament chases after Crow, but fails to catch him, and returns to protect the Forest. In one of Dizzy’s storylines, Testament warns her not to trust Ky. When she goes with Ky still, they tell her not to return. 

During the story of Guilty Gear Strive, we learn that Testament has kept in touch with Johnny, and sometimes hangs out at the Jellyfish Pirates’ new ship. Eventually, Testament finds themself living with an elderly couple that once took Dizzy in. Testament reconnects with Dizzy in 2187, and meets them at her and Ky’s new home, also meeting their son, Sin.

Character Game Nonbinary

Rowan Blair III

Rowan is a nonbinary dateable weapon (yes, you read that right) in the hack-and-slash/dating sim visual novel, Boyfriend Dungeon. They are introverted and mysterious, have a very androgynous character design, and are always with their friendly albino crow, named Crowley. Rowan and Crowley can transform into a scythe together, which can be wielded by the player character during combat sections. 

Other info:

  • Pronouns/gender: they/them, nonbinary
  • Media Appearances: Dateable weapon in the game “Boyfriend Dungeon”, both dateable and wieldable as a weapon in combat sections
  • Likes: Wild plants, isolation, animal bones, tea, Crowley (their cute little crow friend), the mountains
  • Dislikes: Crowds, social media

Role in Combat:

During the roguelike hack-and-slash sections, Rowan becomes a scythe with a slow attack speed but very wide attack range. Rowan’s scythe form comes with an ability the creates a black hole that can draw in enemies, dealing massive damage. Their dash move also gives the player momentary invincibility, and they have a stacking ability that temporarily increases their attack power after killing an enemy. This stacking effect and the black hole ability can be upgraded as your relationship with rowan grows

Story (SPOILERS!!)

Rowan can first be met after going to Jesse’s barbeque, if the player goes to the mansion on the furthest point up on the overworld map. There, a “date” event can be found, where you’ll meet Rowan, who’s quite angry and grieving the death of her grandmother, Alice, insisting that you’ve been causing chaos in town. They attempt to kill you, though surrendering and accepting death at their can intrigue them, opening up a possible romance or friendship. Later, they slip a mysterious note under your apartment door, which contains a riddle, in the form of a series of numbers, which, when solved, gives you their phone number!

From then on, the player has the ability to choose either a romantic or platonic relationship through your actions during dialogue.

After decoding their phone number, you can meet Rowan at their mansion for the first date with them that doesn’t involve them threatening your life. You can join them in the woods nearby on a little foraging trip for herbs. Partway through, Rowan walks off on their own, asking the player to stay where they are and wait for them. You can either be sneaky and follow them or do as they ask, but if they find you sitting where they told you to when they come back, you’ll gain a little more of their trust, and they’ll allow you to wield them in combat!

Rowan later invites the player over for comfort, as an appraiser is coming to tell them the value of their mansion. The appraiser, a slimy little b***h named Eric, is extremely rude, and essentially tells Rowan that their home and everything in it is worth much less than it’s actual value. Supporting Rowan through your actions allows you to improve your relationship with them.

When the player meets Rowan at the park, Rowan expresses interest in growing your relationship in a more romantic direction. Here, the player can either choose to accept, or keep your friendship with Rowan as just a friendship. 

During your next visit with Rowan, you’ll find that Crowley has gone missing! After helping Rowan look for them for hours, comforting them along the way. When they finally return to the mansion, they find Crowley waiting for them with a cup of tea for them both.

One day, Crowley delivers a letter to the player from Rowan, asking you to meet them at a fancy little place called Mission San Drago. Rowan talks through their feelings and grief towards Alice’s death, pondering death and the difficulty of moving on. 

On the mountain a little later, Rowan reveals that they’ve recently managed to contact Alice’s spirit, and while talking to her, realized that they’ve relied on the player an unhealthy amount during the grieving process. This is where you can either continue to pursue a romantic relationship with them or move on as close friends. Either way, you and Rowan now have an unbreakable bond.

Sky: Children of the Light

A Sky kid leads a spirit to relive their memories.
A Sky kid leads a spirit to relive their memories.

Sky: Children of the Light developers (thatgamecompany) have stated that none of the Sky kids (players) or spirits have specified genders. They also have a Pride event every June and donate to The Trevor Project.

Sky: Children of the Light is a social game in which players relive spirits’ memories across 7 different realms. Each spirit has a friendship tree that allows the player to unlock new cosmetics, spells, and more. Sky has events year-round of varying lengths. “Season” events are about the length of a real life season, and “Days” events last a few weeks at most.

thatgamecompany has stated this on a support site: “The characters and spirits in Sky are deliberately designed to let players express their chosen gender in whatever manner they choose. We believe in the power of player choice and self-expression, and encourage you to discover what that means for your in-game character.” When they introduce new spirits on social media, they also avoid using pronouns with the spirits. Whenever pronouns are used, it’s always they/them, similarly to how we use they/them for people when we don’t know their gender.

Every year, Sky hosts Days of Color, an event that acts as an in-game Pride. Pride cosmetics are available during this event. 2023 introduced 2 dark rainbow items (mostly black items with some rainbows). Other items, all rainbow of course, include a cape, trousers, and headphones. An area of Daylight Prairie was also extended for this event. Players could be seen bringing color to the already existing area, and flying up to the extension in a rainbow beam. The extended area featured a few small sky islands with rainbow waterfalls and bridges. Players faded into each color of the rainbow while in this area, and could float upon a giant rainbow ring that encircled the sky islands.

Days of Color 2023 also introduced event currencies. Days of Color currency could buy only the dark rainbow cape. All other items used other in-game currencies, or real ones. Either way, a donation finds its way to The Trevor Project every June.

Character Game Mental Health Transfem


Madeline is a trans girl with anxiety, who the game centers around as she attempts to climb Celeste Mountain. Her journey has story beats that can be very relatable to trans players, such as the main villain being an evil version of Madeline, who literally comes out of a mirror for the sole purpose of ruining Madeline’s life. Her journey up the mountain represents her struggle with mental health, and her reflection literally throwing her back to the bottom at one point in the story very bluntly represents her dysphoria damaging her mental health. Madeline was confirmed to be trans by the games creator, an enbie named Maddy Thorson, after the release of the games “Farewell” expansion pack, which showed Madeline in her room with a little trans flag a rainbow flag on her wall, right behind her computer. Maddy also stated that some of her experiences with her identity and mental health are reflected in the game and it’s central character.

Story (SPOILERS!!)

We meet our hero at the base of Celeste Mountain, where her journey begins. Madeline, plagued with self-doubt, has spontaneously decided to make the difficult climb up the mountain in an attempt to recover her self-esteem. At the base of the mountain, she meets an old lady named Granny, who mockingly discourages Madeline and warns her of the supernatural nature of the mountain. Madeline ignores her taunting, and immediately has to cross a bridge that collapses as she dashes across, eliminating her way back. Madeline is now set on her journey up Celeste Mountain.

In the ruins of an abandoned city, Madeline meets a social media guru named Theo, who is mostly just trekking up the mountain for online fame. Shortly after meeting Theo, Madeline meets the antagonist of Celeste in a nightmare, who she names “Badeline”. A personification of Madeline’s darkest thoughts, Badeline tells her that she’s simply too weak to climb the mountain, describing herself as Madeline’s more “pragmatic” half.

Madeline next reaches the Celestial Resort, a rundown resort run by the ghost of a man named Oshiro, who is in a state of denial about the state of his resort. After Madeline ignores his offers to let her stay and instead just helps him clean the place up, Badeline persuades Oshiro that she only did it to fuel her own ego, and he chases her out of the resort in a fit of rage.

After pushing through a windy area, Madeline meets Theo at a gondola lift. Despite the anxiety of being so high up, Madeline enjoys the calm ride, until Badeline comes and stops the lift mid-ride. Madeline begins to have an extreme panic attack that leaves her gasping for air on the floor of the lift. While she breaks down, Theo teaches her a grounding technique that his grandmother taught him. Breathing in and out, visualizing that her breath is keeping a feather floating in the air, Madeline gets back on her feet.

Once the gondola continues moving, it takes the two to an ancient temple, where Theo gets sealed in a magic crystal. After carrying her crystal-encrusted friend through the temple, Madeline was once again runs into Badeline. Now with the confidence to confront her, Madeline lashes out and tells her that she wishes Badeline would just leave her alone, permanently. Hurt, Badeline throws her all the way back down the mountain.

Once again, Madeline finds herself at Granny’s hut. After talking to Granny, Madeline realizes that she should seek resolution with Badeline rather than abandoning her entirely, and sets off to find her counterpart. With Madeline finally understanding Badeline, the two share a hug and fuse together, using their combined power to reach the peak of Mount Celeste.

As the sun sets, Madeline and Badeline watch the sun set from the stunning view at the peak of the mountain. Though Badeline won’t have a physical form when they leave the magical mountain, Badeline will still be a part of her, and now they’ll live life working together, as one.

About a year later, Madeline returns to Celeste Mountain to explore the core of the mountain with Granny. Over time, the two grow close.

When Granny died shortly after, Madeline refused to go to her funeral. She shut down, and stopped communicating with her friends, including Theo. Wracked with guilt, she then travels to Granny’s grave. There, she sees a bluebird, which she recognizes as the bird that watched over her during her original journey up the mountain, and gives chase, believing that it’s a Part of Granny, just like Badeline is a Part of her. When Madeline chases the bird all the way up into space, Badeline abandons her, telling her that she’s in denial.

Badeline later returns to tell Madeline that she’s actually in a dream. Faced with the chance to see Granny one last time, Madeline forges on anyways, and Badeline eventually helps her. She catches the bird, and though she at first refuses to let this little part of Granny go, she decides to set it free as a tribute to her friend. After continuing to follow the bird higher and higher up, Madeline reaches a vast, cloudy expanse, where she finally meets with Granny once again. After getting some closure and a last goodbye with Granny, Madeline wakes up in her bedroom. Upon waking up, Madeline decides to finally let Theo back into her life, by starting a video call with him on her computer. They catch up, and Madeline finally talks about her grief over Granny’s death. Theo also tells Madeline that, as he learned from a picture he found laying around, his grandfather and Granny were actually friends who climbed Celeste Mountain together way back in the day.

Samus Aran

In earlier depictions, Samus Aran from “Metroid” was represented as a trans woman! She was described as a “newhalf”, an old Japanese slang term for trans women, by her designer, Hirofumi Matsuoka in 1994. She was also said around that time to be 6’3 and 198 pounds, more typical AMAB dimensions. Though she’s since been made smaller and more conventionally feminine in more recent games, there’s been nothing to suggest that she’s strictly cisgender, and the creator’s intent still stands!

Samus is the Nintendo universe’s most powerful bounty hunter! Using her high-tech Power Suit, which is integrated into her DNA, given to her by an alien race called the Chozo, she fights Space Pirates, robots, and monsters alike in pursuit of galactic peace. She finds upgrades to her armor like missiles, stronger laser beams, and a grappling hook to help her fight those who get in her way and navigate the vast and beautiful environments she explores throughout the Metroid franchise. In almost every grand story she stars in, she comes face-to-face with Ridley, a giant space dragon that, according to a manga that’s only available on a few scattered websites now, actually killed her parents. Samus is quiet and introverted, as suits the isolating environments she’s usually sent to, with a composure and level of combat prowess that makes her perfect at her job.  Despite her lonely nature, Samus will defend those few close to her with everything she has.

  • Media Appearances: Main Character/Player Character in Nintendo’s “Metroid” videogame franchise (“Metroid”, “Metroid II: Return of Samus”, “Super Metroid”, “Metroid Fusion”, “Metroid Prime”, “Metroid: Zero Mission”, “Metroid Prime 2: Echoes”, “Metroid Prime Hunters”, “Metroid Prime 3: Corruption”, “Metroid: Other M”, “Metroid: Samus Returns”, and “Metroid Dread”), Minor Character in multiple Nintendo titles (“Metroid Prime: Federation Force”, multiple “Kirby” games, multiple “Super Smash Brothers” games, others).

  • Fun Facts
    • The Metroid series was actually heavily inspired by the “Alien” movies! Both series have a badass female protagonist, and both center around a deadly alien race. The idea of the Queen Metroid was inspired by the Queen Xenomorph from “Aliens”, and both Samus and Ripley have their DNA modified with that of an alien species in “Metroid: Fusion” and “Alien: Resurrection”. 

Story (SPOILERS!!):

(This section is based on only the canon Metroid games, in their official chronological order, using any remakes as the canonical story)

Samus’s story begins with her first mission, in Metroid: Zero Mission. In the year 20X5, the Galactic Federation hires Samus to hunt down Mother Brain and her Space Pirates on Planet Zebes, who have stolen Metroids, immensely dangerous slimey organisms with the power to drain the life force of their prey. After defeating Mother Brain’s two generals, Ridley and Kraid, Samus destroys their leader and attempts flees the planet. However, Samus is shot down, forcing her to infiltrate and destroy the Space Pirate research vessel, leaving the ship just before it self-destructs.

From there, the timeline goes on with the Metroid Prime trilogy and it’s spinoffs. After another battle with Ridley, this time called Meta Ridley, Samus crash lands on Tallon IV. There she find more Chozo ruins, and another Space Pirate research center, this time studying a radioactive compoud called “Phazon”. After finding a suit that makes her immune to Phazon, Samus eventually finds the origin of Tallon IV’s Phazon problem, a heavily Phazon-mutated Metroid, which the game itself is named after: the Metroid Prime. Samus destroys it and escapes the planet. After this comes Metroid Prime Hunters, which is mostly unrelated to the rest of the Metroid Prime series. Samus fights some other bounty hunters, beat a big spooky ancient evil, and goes on her way. In Metroid Prime II: Echoes, she lands on the planet Aether, a planet who’s Phazon corruption has split the planet into two separate “light” and “dark” dimensions, which war against eachother. On Aether, Samus fights against an evil version of herself, Dark Samus, who formed from the remains of the Phazon Suit and the Metroid Prime. She mends the planet’s two halves back together, and then leaves for her next adventure. At the start of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Samus is infected with Phazon by Dark Samus while defending a Galactic Federation outpost. To save her life, her suit is outfitted with new ear that gives her rad new Phazon powers. Samus goes from planet to planet, eventually reaching and destroying Phaaze, the source of all Phazon, which causes the destruction of all Phazon in the galaxy as a result. Phazon has been destroyed, the galaxy is at peace.

After all this, the Galactic Federation decides to make their own knockoff Power Suits. A squad of Galactic Marines goes on missions in these new suits, with Samus appearing occassionally to help. Samus is later captured and mind controlled by the Space Pirates, but is freed by the Marines. In a post-credit scene, one of the bounty hunters from Hunters is shown stealing a Metroid, for unspecified reasons (this character seems to be being set up to be the villain of the upcoming Metroid Prime 4, as his ship is seen chasing after Samus’s in the post-credit scene of Metroid Prime 3).

By now, the Galactic Federation has decided that Metroids are too dangerous to exist. In Metroid: Samus Returns, Samus is sent to SR-388, the homeplanet of the Metroids, to exterminate every last on of them. After eliminating all 40 on the planet, including the Queen Metroid, Samus goes to leave the planet. On her way out, a Metroid egg hatches right in front of her. While she almost kills it on sight, she instead decides to have mercy on the little baby Metroid, and takes it with her. She runs into Ridley for like the 10th time, who she defeats with the baby Metroid’s help, and leaves the planet. 

The last Metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace. In the classic banger, Super Metroid, Samus has put the baby Metroid into the care of Federation scientists. The baby is immediately stolen by Ridley, who flies off back to Planet Zebes, where it all began. After once again defeating Kraid and Ridley, along with some new foes, Samus is almost killed by a rebuilt, stronger Mother Brain. Just in time, the baby, now fully grown, swoops in and latches onto Mother Brain, draining her life force. As the baby heals Samus with the energy stolen from Mother Brain, the Brain gravely injures it. The baby dies saving Samus. Samus once again destroys Mother Brain, and escapes Planet Zebes. 

Metroid: Other M, the most controversial game in the franchise, gives Samus the most in-depth personality of any installment. The story of this one is complicated and actually sort of convoluted, so I won’t go into it too deeply. Essentially, Samus is scarred and heartbroken by the fate of the baby Metroid in Super Metroid. For her first mission after months of recovery, she goes to yet another research station that’s been abandoned for mysterious reasons. Here, she reunites with her old commanding officer and father figure, Adam Malkovich. When Samus meets Ridley again later on, she’s shown having a post-traumatic episode, a result of the events of Super Metroid. When they find out that this research station had been a cloning station for Metroids, using residue from the baby scraped off of Samus’s suit after her last mission. Adam sacrifices himself to destroy the station. Samus later returns to the remains of the station in a post-credit section to retrieve Adam’s helmet, a lone keepsake from her former commander. 

At the beginning of Metroid: Fusion, a deadly accident befalls Samus. While investigating the disappearance of multiple Federation soldiers on SR-388, she stumbles across a strange parasite, that absorbs itself into her body. Later, while piloting her ship, she blacks out nd crashes into an asteroid. When she is taken to a medical center, the strange parasite, which they named the X Parasite, had made it’s way into her nervous system, and fused her Power Suit to her body. She was only saved when a vaccine was made using more Metroid DNA (which they seem to just never run out of), which is now realized to have been the natural predator of the X Parasite. Samus is now a hybrid of human, Chozo, and Metroid DNA. Samus is given a sleek new purple ship, and is sent to ANOTHER compromised research station, this time one where the X Parasite was being held. With Samus is an AI assistant, which she named after her former commander, Adam. After going through the now X-infested station, Samus is shocked to discover that the Federation hasn’t given up on cloning Metroids, and that this is the true nature of the station. At the last second before the station self destructs, she accidentally calls the AI “Adam” out loud. After searching the Federation database for that name, the AI assimilates Adam’s personality, under the explanation that the Federation uploads it’s greatest military minds to the database. Samus escapes just as the station is eviscerated, destroying the X-Parasite for good.

……….except not really. At the start of the most recent game, Metroid Dread, Samus receives a message that X has been spotted on Planet ZDR. After defeating several X-corrupted robots sent there by the Federation, Samus, unlocking the full power of her Metroid DNA, destroys the planet, once again escaping just in time.

Beauty Nova is a minor Pokémon character that can be battled in Pokémon X & Y. Nova says that, just a half year ago, she was a Black Belt (or a Karate King in the Japanese version), a trainer type that’s exclusively male, in contrast to her “Beauty” trainer type, which is exclusively female. While her dialogue in the English version is somewhat censored, she says in the Japanese version “the power of medical science is amazing, wouldn’t you say?!”, alluding to her medical transition!! : D

Character Game Gender Unknown Non-human


So I’m mostly putting this on here cause I think it’s funny, but Mangle from the Five Nights at Freddy’s series has repeatedly conflicting information on their gender, in a way signaling that she may be omnigender, bigender, or something along those lines. Mangle’s pronouns are entirely different between different mentions of the character in game, with she, he, and they all being used for the character. This is likely because Mangle, as his name hints at, is a mangled conglomeration of different dismantled animatronics, which all probably have different genders. Scott Cawthon, the creator of FNaF himself, has added to the confusion with a post he made on Steam, in one of the funniest ways he possibly could, by saying that their gender is “Yes”. Mangle first appears in FNaF 2, and has been a staple of the games since then.

Story (Spoilers I guess?):

Mangle first appears in FNaF 2, as a hostile animatronic that begins in the Kid’s Cove area and slowly creeps towards the player character’s office. Mangle is described as an old animatronic that has become a take-apart-and-put-back-together toy for the young children that play at the FNaF 2 restaurant. When Mangle is present in a room, a modified static sound effect can be heard when the room is viewed through a camera.

In FNaF 3, Mangle does not appear in any physical form, rather appearing as a Phantom Animatronic, a hallucination that hinders the player’s survival, but does not directly kill them. A similar sound to Mangle’s static effect, this time much louder, can be heard when Phantom Mangle is near. Mangle becomes hostile towards the player when the player views them for too long on the cameras, producing their static noise, which both makes the other animatronics more aggressive and disables the office’s audio and ventilation systems.

Mangle appears as a nightmarish version of their FNaF 2 design in FNaF 4, in a non-canon appearance in the Halloween Edition of the title, and functions similarly in gameplay to Nightmare Foxy.

FNaF: Sister Location, which is theorized to take place before the other games, introduced Funtime Foxy, which appears to be Mangle before their fate in FNaF 2.

Mangle appears in FNaF: Special Delivery as Magician Mangle and Serpent Mangle. Mangle’s original FNaF 2 iteration also appears in FNaF World, FNaF: Help Wanted, and FNaF: Ultimate Custom Night. Phantom Mangle also appears in FNaF World, FNaF: Help Wanted, and FNaF: Ultimate Custom Night. Nightmare Mangle also appears in FNaF: Ultimate Custom Night. Funtime Foxy also appears in FNaF World, FNaF: Help Wanted, and FNaF: Ultimate Custom Night. 


Some people might be annoyed that I put Mangle here since I’m mostly just adding it as a joke, but there’s a valid argument that Mangle’s genderqueer, so I’m posting this on the page 🙂
