    Default Let's talk strong female characters...

    Okay, so hopefully this thread doesn't turn itself into a battleground, but I've had this question buzzing around in my head a bit and what curious to see what kinda answers I'd get. So whenever the conversation about strong female characters in games pops up, I feel like the same answers always pop up. We get Samus, we get Bayo, maybe some Tifa, and Lara Craft... though those last two seem to have more controversial conversations about their lady pillows than their roles and/or genders... Anywho, the question I wanted to throw out here is this: In all these conversations about strong female characters in video games, who do you think gets overlooked the most?

    I feel like there's two women in one of my favorite RPGs that kick plenty of donkey and don't seem to get much recognition, maybe due to the general unpopularity of their game, but I think Freya Crescent and Beatrix could hold some traction in those conversations, but I never really see them pop up.


    How about you guys? Any strong female characters you feel should be included more in conversations?

    Tohru Honda. She stays positive and keeps smiling no matter what life throws her way.

    Meryl Silverburgh from the Metal Gear series was a pretty strong character. She's shown to be tough, a good leader, and she's pretty skilled with her favorite gun; the Desert Eagle long barrel.

    WEOW

    I'm lame, I had to look her up. I've never actually seen Fruits Basket. I might have to now though, mostly because I'm curious as to why I couldn't find an image of her without that cat! xD

    ^_^ I think the only reason I haven't seen it thus far is because it's not normally the genre I go for, but I'll try it out soon, once I'm done with Samurai Flamenco.

    I think Zelda doesnt get the credit she deserves. Yeah she gets kidnapped but she also leads her people through really dark times and lets not forget she went all ninja with Sheik. I think Zelda is a hardcore woman character that people overlook simply because there are times she needs help. Id like to remind everyone that EVERYONE needs help. LINK needs the most help out of everyone with a sidekick and numerous powerful beings lending him a hand everywhere he goes but you never hear people talk about how inept Link is.

    Post this same question in the anime section, and I may come up with a few answers. As for games, don't play them.

    In fact wasn't it Zelda helping Link along the way in OoT? I don't know much about the game honestly, I've never played it (too young to play it, besides I never owned it anyway). But I suppose that since we're bringing up Zelda, I wanted to mention Zelda in Twilight Princess.

     
    During the Twilight Invasion, she voluntarily surrendered to Zant. This way no one would get killed. But what was the price? People ended up getting killed anyway. They are living inconstant fear and to top if off, she is forced to helplessly watch. And for someone who is but a lonely young matriarch, that had to be really tough for her to do.

    Remember when Midna was on the brink of death? Who else was there to save her? Why, Princess Zelda of course. For fudge sakes, she temporarily disappeared after losing her power. That's why the TP reincarnation of Zelda is my favorite; she's a young woman not afraid to make sacrifices for others.

    And if you ask me, I think she could have taken on Zant if nobody else was involved. That's just me though.



    The scene I mentioned starts 1:48.

    Glad to find someone else who also appreciated her. It's been a rather long time since I played KOTOR 2, as well, but I still remember plenty of amazing moments from it, and more than a few involve Kreia, like when you first meet Darth Sion aboard that ship and not only Kreia doesn't panic even a bit, but she just treats the whole thing as if it were a mere nuisance, and neither violent and scary freakos such as Nihilus or Hanharr, nor yourself if you turn to the Dark Side, seem to ever scare her. And there were more than a few lines that she delivered that were quite impressive and really got you thinking them over, because they weren't even things related to Star Wars, but to real life.

    Oh yes, and with the Restored Content Mod you even get to take a peek at her hairstyle!

    P.S. Man, that Power Rangers gif just. Made. My. Freaking. Day! Hahahahahaa!
