During another hilarious #SheAttackAfterDark episode this weekend, the ladies and I hopped on the topic of good-looking male video game characters. Here is my top 10 list of personal favorite male characters in RPGs. Note that this is my personal opinion and I’ve chosen these characters based on overall character, as well as looks, on who I am more attracted to. There is no order here, only hot guys from video games.

Adell – Disgaea 2
I have a fondness for this game, mostly because it was the first (and to this day the only) Disgaea game that I have beaten. Also, because of those muscles. I mean, damn son.
Balthier – Final Fantasy XII
Because he is a gentleman and a damn good fighter if I might add. His accent is also so lovable and his backstory is just as complicated as the rest of the characters. Good show, sir.
Riku – Kingdom Hearts
No kid should be that muscular. That aside, Riku’s complicated nature and tortured road down trying to save everyone his own way is still awesome. I especially loved him in Kingdom Hearts 2. What can I say? Long hair gets to me.
Snow Villiers – Final Fantasy XIII
Haters gonna hate, but Snow in Final Fantasy XIII (I don’t care so much for the last two iterations, I prefer this one) is damn fine. The fact that he is dedicated to saving Serah and being the “hero,” as cheesy as it is, is endearing. Also, the fact that he is voiced by Troy Baker doesn’t hurt either.
Luke von Fabre – Tales of Abyss
He’s such a whiny prick in the beginning, but he eventually gets a kick in the butt and gets his shit together for the better. I love his abs…*ahem* hair…
Sephiroth – Final Fantasy VII
That’s right, not Cloud, not Zack, but the one and only Sephiroth. I was so close to putting Vincent on here, goddamn that Turk suit in Dirge of Cerberus was fiiine, but I love my silver haired men and Sephiroth is so bad that he’s good.
Yosuke – Persona 4
You think with the trend of me liking silver haired men that I would have chosen the main character of Persona 4 here. I would have, but I have to have some interesting picks on this list too! Yosuke’s ability to make me laugh out loud while playing the game is something that I can’t easily say I have with other characters. It’s his dorky character that gets him on this list.
Kuja – Final Fantasy IX
Kuja is the shit. Before you get all judgmental, unless you aren’t already by the time you get to this entry, what other male characters have you seen wear a thong? (Answer in the comments!) His story is also amazing and pretty much made FF9 one of my favourite gaming experiences ever.
Jude – Tales of Xillia
Sometimes I do love the good guys. Jude was an amazing character and one that you really see a drastic change in throughout the game. He’s not that bad on the eyes either.
Joshua – The World Ends With You
My favourite character from the game and the most mysterious until the very end. He levitates while fighting so thats pretty awesome in itself.
I might have a slight thing for muscular, silver-haired bad-guys… Just saying.
If there is an RPG guy that I missed with this short list that you think is hot, tell us in the comments below! Don’t be shy!
