Top 8 Craziest Outfits of Female Characters in Video Games

Updated on December 6, 2018

Poppy is the author of "A Bard's Lament." She lives in Enoshima and likes to read novels and play video games, especially open-world RPGs.

Many video games are famous for their great storylines, epic music, exciting gameplay, and sometimes questionably dressed female characters. Whether these are to explore fashion senses or simply lure in male gamers, characters like these have been a huge source of entertainment, conversation, and cosplays for players and gamers all over the world.

This article highlights seven "ridiculously" dressed women from various popular video games, who are well-known for their skimpy clothes, "hotness", and sometimes feisty attitudes.

1. Morrigan (Dragon Age: Origins)

Morrigan is a playable character in Dragon Age: Origins (2009), who joins your team fairly early on in the game. It is possible to pursue her personal side-quest, and as with any character in the game, can improve or damage your relationship with her with gifts and dialogue choices.

Due to her sarcasm, shrewdness and rather cold attitude, as well as her revealing outfit, Morrigan quickly became a popular character for all players of Dragon Age. As a mage, Morrigan wears her robes as armour - though I doubt the thin string holding her shirt together does much to block arrows and spears. Still, each to their own. Morrigan dominates a lot of Dragon Age fanart as well as the game's art itself.


2. Claire and Moira (Resident Evil: Revelations 2)

Claire and Moira are the two playable characters in Resident Evil: Revelations 2 on Playstation 4. Both Claire and Barry's campaign include a duo-team, making it fun for co-op play.

Upon achieving certain things in the game, Claire and Moira's bonus costumes can be unlocked - "Urban Ninja" for Moira, and "Rodeo" for Claire. In the classic Japanese style, these outfits are completely unpractical for fighting, and are amusing and sexy to play in.


3. Christie Monteiro (Tekken Series)

Christie first appeared in Tekken 4 (2002), and has appeared in all of the subsequent releases. Christie is the granddaughter of Legendary Capoeira Master, and fights in the King of Iron Fist Tournament in Tekken 6 to save him when he is terminally ill.

It seems to be a favourite of outfit designers to cover not-so-vital parts of the body whilst only barely covering the vitals. Interesting how you'd enter a fighting match in a top like that. Still, who are we to judge?

4. Jeane (Suikoden Series)

Jeane is not a playable character in the Suikoden series (1995-), so I suppose the phrase "how does she fight in that thing?" doesn't really apply here. Still, it's a rather... unique outfit for a shopkeeper.

Jeane doesn't reveal much about herself at all, and is labelled by the Suikoden Wikia as 'mysterious'. It is suggested that she may be immortal, appearing in various worlds and times but appearing not to have aged at all. It is also suggested that she may not be human, as she asks the character Koroku to "keep how you see me a secret".

So if you were a monster, or demon, who could change your appearance... would you dress like this to sell runes in a shop to warriors? Well... why not?


5. Dona (Final Fantasy X)

Dona is a unplayable character in Final Fantasy X (2001) and Final Fantasy X-2 (2003). Like the main character, Yuna, Dona is a summoner in Spira, finishing her pilgrimage with her guardian to battle Sin, the nightmarish fiend that roams the world and causes havoc. Dona pops up now and then when she and the main party sometimes meet. Her outfit clearly shows that covering your legs and arms are far more important than fully covering your privates, and another thing - she battles monsters in that?!

Dona travels with her one guardian, Barthello, and often teases Yuna for having many guardians. She is another independent and rather nonchalant character, who, despite her revealing costume, is rather cold towards men in general. Maybe they just like teasing you.


6. Rikku (Final Fantasy X-2)

Another Final Fantasy character - this time, Rikku from the sequel of the above game. In Final Fantasy X, Rikku is a fifteen-year-old Alchemist girl wearing basically a suit. In the sequel (2003), however, she seems to have let her hair down completely, fighting in a bikini, a mini skirt, and a scarf - you know, in case she gets cold.

Equipping various dresspheres allows this playable character to change outfits along with abilities. There are two that stuck out for me. Picture 1 shows Rikku in her "everyday" outfit, Thief, which she wears in storyline parts of the game, such as cutscenes. Picture 2 is her as a Berserker, one of the most powerful and useful abilities in the game. What I want to know is how she does all those backflips, high kicks and martial arts wearing some underwear and what appear to be leopard skin Ugg boots. Still - it's a cartoon. Since when did physics and technicalities matter?

7. Kainé (Nier: Gestalt and Nier: Replicant)

Kainé is one of the most feisty, foul-mouthed video game characters I've ever seen, and yet she's perfectly comfortable wearing barely more than a corset and heels. Amazing how she can run, jump, and stab monsters in that thing.

Kainé is a very popular character in the Nier games (2010), both Gestalt and Replicant, not only due to her crazy clothes, but her toughness, dark secrets, shady past and plot twist.

Nier has one of the best storylines of a game I've ever played, and Kainé (and her outfit) were unforgettable.

8. Ivy Valentine (Soul Calibur Series)

Finally, I chose Ivy Valentine from the Soul Calibur series (1999 -) as having one of the most ridiculous outfits of all time. Ivy is a playable character who fights with her spiked chain whip, which appears to have been made with more material than her clothes. Her weapon can also be a sword. Ivy's father is one of the antagonists of the series, and her attitude, similar to Kainé, Morrigan, and Dona, is harsh and sometimes seems cruel.

Ivy is an exceptionally popular character and has been cosplayed many times at various conventions.

      Out of this list, Kaine is probably my favorite. Obviously for reasons completely unrelated to me being a guy ^.^

      And I do believe I know her plot anyway.

      It was a fun article to write! I had the idea when I was playing Final Fantasy X-2, with both Dona and Rikku in them. I used to play Soul Calibur as a kid and Dragon Age is one of my favourite games. The others took some research. I agree, Ivy is number one by far!

      Ivy undoubtedly belongs at #1 on this list, but I'm sure you had no trouble finding candidates.
