20 HOTTEST VIDEO GAME BABES
BY TARA BABCOCK
(Plus a sexy
Tara Babcock art and anime gallery!)
There are two things that make an
already great video game even better. The first is hot chicks and the second is
barely clothed, voluptuous hot chicks! Sexy video game vixens can enhance any
story plot with their head-turning good looks, nice or naughty personalities,
badass moves... and by jumping around a lot while wearing a low-cut v-neck or a
tiny bikini. Here is the comprehensive top 20 list of my personal favorite
game-derived super hotties and why they rock my digital world!
Lady from Devil May Cry
Lady, the cute-yet-deadly b-cupped
sensation made her first appearance in Devil My Cry 3: Dante's Awakening. I'm
not sure if Dante could see past her three foot long steel bazooka, or Kalina
Ann as it's named, at first to recognize her video game hottie worthiness, but I
know I did! Outfitted in the typical unbuttoned white and semi-sheer school girl
blouse, and an extremely short armored skirt and gun holsters to complete the
look, who wouldn't notice her physical blessings? Another thing that adds to her
standing in my list is her apparent case of heterochromia. I mean, some guys
prefer brown eyes, some prefer blue... or you can have one of each and be
completely unique while giving those huge puppydog eyes. I bet she'd get
whatever she wants! Lady isn't your typical shy and sweet girl; she definitely
counts as a dangerous killer. Originally named Mary by her murderous father,
Lady's had a tough upbringing and subsequently lacks trust and weapon restraint,
but can you blame her? I'm assuming she gets hit on all the time... but not more
than once, I bet!
Lady appears again in Devil May Cry
4 all grown up (at least two cup sizes larger, but who's complaining?) and
sporting a trendy mafia style business-style suit with a killer pair of shades.
She accompanies Dante and Trish (Threesome, anyone?) on a few assignments and
has become a staple demonhunter in Dante's shop, and yet another babe to add to
his collection. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing more of that cutie, nor would
I mind another Devil May Cry title!
Ling Xiaoyu from Tekken
Ahh, what can I say about Ling
Xiaoyu that didn't initially pop into your heads from the above image? She's
sweet, and has been legal since Tekken 4! Next to blondes, there's nothing I
love more than a cute, spunky Asian girl! This Chinese-born high school student
living in Japan is sweet, adorable and can kick your keister.
Growing up, I played Tekken a lot
and Xiaoyu was my fighter of choice! Her cute, flexible moves and kind
mannerisms (she always bows and salutes you in Japanese post-match) really got
my attention. Besides, who doesn't dig a girl flouncing about in pigtails?
Make no mistake, although small and
fragile-looking, this girl could pack a punch... or kick! She was my favorite
Tekken character throughout the series, not only for her sexiness and cute panda
protector, but for her versatility. I could beat anyone with her, even if I
button mashed. HIYA!
Mitsuru Kirijo from Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3
Mitsuru is the overachieving
crimson-haired goddess in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3. Not only does Mitsuru
make my list of favorites, so does the game she hails from. She's not only the
glue that holds SEES (the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad) together,
but she's also the heir to the Kirijo Group and Student Body President at
Gekkokan High School. That's one accomplished beauty queen!
For those of you who haven't played
it, the Persona 3 plot revolves around a group of "special" high school students
who realize they have the gift of seeing the "Dark Hour" and menacing shadows
that dwell within it. This "gift" also comes with an awesome shadow-fighting
alter ego based on the personality of its host. In order to control this
manifested "persona" they have to bring it out using an "evoker". The evoker
looks uncannily like a pistol that must be held up to the temple of the user and
fired, like a non-deadly suicide! While in the Dark Hour, the SEES group goes to
a mysterious (and seemingly limitless) tower, called Tartarus. When inside, they
fight off the shadows that are trying to escape into the waking world. SEES
works undercover as a normal, school-funded extracurricular group, and Mitsuru
works behind the scenes, as well as on the battlefront.
Although she comes off as a mature,
stable girl, Mitsuru's always extremely shy when it comes to boys. Playing the
protagonist allows you to choose a girl in the game to attempt to date, and my
pick was always Mitsuru. Although the shadow vanquishing and thick storyline
interested me thoroughly, there wasn't a sequence in the game more exciting than
the bathhouse and beach scenes! You'll have to pick up the game for the full
Among all of these reasons Mitsuru
made my list, there is also that sexy Japanese school girl outfit with her long,
slender legs and knee-high boots that really grabs interest. Plus, she can be a
leader and stay sweet simultaneously, which is always an advantage! Congrats to
Mitsuru for being my sole redhead gamer girl fantasy!
Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
Lara Croft surely has not gone
undetected in the search for hot video game babes. In fact, she appears to be
somewhat of a sex symbol, which is a pretty huge accomplishment, considering she
is made up of pixels! This sexy, fit, British adventurer and tough girl has
melted the heart of many during her numerous leads in the Tomb Raider franchise.
We get to enjoy the whole of Lara's tight body and cute little arse as she
climbs up and down caves, fights bats, raging tigers and conspiracies, and
experiments with new Batman-esque inventions.
One of my fondest memories of Lara
is mastering her obstacle course in the backyard of her mansion, and getting
lost in her garden maze while her overly intrusive butler follows close behind.
Tomb Raider is an amazing title that has innovated virtually every system for
several years, but I am sure Lara's superb figure and sexy accent has helped
keep the interest of fans worldwide, including myself. Lara's model has the
cutest face in Tomb Raider Anniversary and Underworld, but I miss those giant
boobs from the pixelated pioneering Tomb Raider... ahh, the memories! Does
anyone else have complaints over the decline of Lara's bombshell-ity and
revealing nature in the new installation, or is it just me?
Now if only Lara could
be a blonde!
Princess Daphne from Dragon's Lair
It's apparent why Dirk the Daring
ventures to go on such perilous missions to save this babe in danger! Princess
Daphne, who first appeared in the initial Dragon's Lair game in 1986, is beyond
beautiful. Her half naked, yet regal appearance, flowing blonde hair, big eyes
with batting lashes and cute, ditzy appearance could win any knight (or dragon!)
over, and has been the subject of much controversy over "sexism" in gaming!
The original story features Singe,
a troublesome and stereotypical evil dungeon dragon, who captures the curvaceous
princess and locks her away in Mordoc the wizard's castle of treachery. It is up
to you to play Dirk good enough to rescue the princess and manage to get some
action... or at least that's what I'd do it for! Although the graphics have
always been very cartoonish and reminiscent of Disney's style, Daphne is
anything but the covered up and conservative Cinderella type! Daphne sports a
tiny bikini that barely holds in her oversized bust and a sheer, glittery dress
that leaves nothing to the imagination. Thanks, Daphne, for making every other
"damsel in distress" in history green with envy!
Silvia from Viewtiful Joe
Silvia from Viewtiful Joe
definitely deserves a spot in the hall of hottie fame. She's a spunky, popular
cheerleader and a smart nerd at the same time. This combination, although
scarcely seen, is the epitome of awesome! This blonde bombshell is the
girlfriend of protagonist, Joe, and is kidnapped while watching a movie
featuring their favorite superhero. Joe obtains a V-Watch, allowing him to enter
the comic book style movie world to save his hot blonde eye candy.
Most damsels sit around and wait to
be saved, Silvia is different! In the second installment of the franchise,
Silvia gets a watch of her own, becoming Sexy Silvia, and kicking some ass along
the way. Watching this girl bounce around and do her cheer-like moves will make
anyone want to play (with her). I've never seen a more appealing cell shaded
creation! I'm sure avid Viewtiful Joe fans were enticed to know she has a
near-identical sister too, and the knowledge of that will surely get you playing
the series! Give me an 'S'! Go Silvia!
Rikku from Final Fantasy
I debated long and hard (and
rough...) whether I should include Rikku as one of my Final Fantasy girls, but
I've decided that 17 (in FFX-2) is old enough to be ogled! This Al Bhed tribal
sweetheart makes her first appearance of the Final Fantasy series in X, but the
real treat is getting to see her in her skimpier X-2 getup, featuring a more
mature Rikku in a string bikini top and skirt with her thong straps sticking
She's smart, silly, entertaining
and a child at heart during the series, often helping Yuna combat trouble.
Resourceful and helpful are definitely pluses in my book, and she's voiced by
the adorable Tara Strong to boot! X-2 gives her a more prominent role as well
(among other more prominent things, heh!) and she develops her career as a
master thief, though I couldn't imagine her being able to blend into scenery
well with that impressive body and those crazy braided golden locks! Rikku
definitely helps put sex into the Final Fantasy franchise and surpasses many of
the title's other sexy additions along the way. Watch out for those giant claw
weapons between the sheets, though!
Cammy White from Street Fighter
Step aside, Sonya Blade, there's
only room for one hot, yellow-haired military personnel on my list! If our
society ever becomes advanced enough to create totally erotic female androids
for military warfare, Cammy from the Street Fighter series would be the
prototype. Imagine what this beyond-sultry babe would look like if she let her
long, blonde hair out, put her discipline aside, and got dirty! She's robust and
has long, curvy legs worthy of strangling any man who doesn't give her what she
wants... or woman, I hope! I love her determination and her barely-there thong
bodysuit with the adorable matching hat! I don't think the camouflage would work
that well to hide this voluptuous babe, but damn does it look great on her!
Cammy made her first appearance in
the arcade in 1993 with Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, and has
been a consistent character ever since. Whether you heard the story the American
way or not, the thought of her consorting with M. Bison has got to be a total
turn on! Cammy's yet another girl on my list who can make you melt with her
seductive British accent. Need I say more? I know it may make a lot of Street
Fighter fans out there boil, but I think Cammy White far surpasses Chun Li on
Blood Elf from World of Warcraft
Before the Burning Crusade
expansion came out for the World of Warcraft MMO, the game was definitely
lacking some major sex appeal. Players had to turn to the large, purple
elongated faces and figures of the Night Elves for visual gaming stimulation.
Fear no more, the monotony is expansions past with the emergence of the Blood
My first, and favorite, character I
created in WoW was a Blood Elf Hunter. I love the Blood Elves for their lean,
tiny frames and their alluring glowing eyes. They look cute in any tier gear,
though I'll forever enjoy the naked glitch every time it happens! In lore, the
Blood Elves are what remained of the High Elves after their numbers dwindled
down to a sole few. Even though the tyranny and oppression is over, and their
population has restored, they decided to call themselves "Blood" Elves in memory
of the blood their brethren have shed. That’s a pretty cool backstory to such a
sexy, resilient race!
I feel bad for the foul Alliance
player who has to sit around admiring the hooved Draenei or the chubby human!
Blood Elves are why the majority of us WoW nerds exclaim "for the Horde!"
Here's my sexy Blood
Elf babe with her pet, Uvuros, wearing our Call of the Mastodon guild tabard.
FOR THE HORDE!
Mileena from Mortal Kombat
Mileena has sustained as my female
of choice throughout the Mortal Kombat series. She was created as a clone of
Princess Kitana, using Tarkatan DNA, by Shang Tsung who was quoted saying that
Mileena is "like Kitana, but without any flaws". I totally agree, who cares
about the crazy Baraka-style mouth and the evil red eyes? Have you seen her
rack? Mortal Kombat is one of the only video games to date that ventures to put
enormous DD's on a small-framed girl. There's nothing sexier than being fit,
small and large-chested, and Mileena has it all. She even sports the sexiest
pink or purple revealing costumes, and anyone who gets to obey Shao Kahn's every
whim is envy-worthy in my book! If you haven't unlocked her secret alternate
costume yet in Mortal Kombat 9, you’re sorely missing out.
Mileena embodies a childish
character through her fighting style, and behavior and is often seen bouncing
around and having fun, all while savagely dismembering her foes. I don't think
there is anything more awe-worthy than a laughing, blood soaked babe with
torn-off clothing! The most memorable "victory dance" in a fighter comes from
Mileena as well, I can still picture her shaking her glutes and flaunting her
curves as she says, "Was it good for you?" Yes, yes it was.
Samus Aran from Metroid
Samus is another standard, and an
obvious super hottie, derived from the video game world. Is it the fact that
gamers became enamored with the strong and mighty Samus character in the
arcades, only to find out "he" is actually a stunning "she"? No way! It's Miss
Samus and her cute blondness in her skin-tight Zero Suit! Even if you haven't
played a single Metroid game you've heard of this doll-face. She's on everyone's
Samus was introduced in the first
installation of Metroid way back in 1986 as a head hunter. Encased fully in
powerful armor from head to toe, no one could tell that she was a woman, let
alone a woman so beautiful with such perfect assets. Game developer marketing
strategy number one: create a rugged, cool and interesting protagonist, then
announce her sexiness once everyone is hooked! Works like a charm. I would fight
Space Pirates with Samus Aran any day!
November Annabella Terra "Nova" from StarCraft
"The sexiest girl who originates
from a game that was never released" award goes to: Nova from the defunct
StarCraft: Ghost game! Even though Nova makes a solid appearance in StarCraft
II: Wings of Liberty's story mode and will remain in the rest of the expansions;
I would still love to see her own game title finally come to fruition. I mean,
that like-second-skin ghost suit and her tight rear (proof above) puts her high
on my list of gaming ecstasy. November is my birth month and Terra is,
phonetically, my name, so she gets points there as well!
Nova is a Terran Ghost, meaning she
is a sniper-style soldier that can become invisible, due to her suit and psychic
training, at will. When playing matches in StarCraft, I often omit the pro
tactic of training and producing Ghosts in my strategy, but if they all looked
like Nova, I bet I'd find a way to include them in every bout! I don't know why
Raynor is so infatuated with Kerrigan when Nova is such an improvement! It's a
shame this sexy, smart game babe's shot at a protagonist role is just as
invisible as she often is.
Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy
Tifa Lockhart has some huge boobs
and some extra-long legs. There, I just came out with what we are all thinking
and why Tifa is regarded by many as the single sexiest video game character
ever. I'm surprised she doesn't topple over! I am sure FF fans around the world
are rooting for a remastered Final Fantasy VII in improved graphics, just to
control Tifa's assets in HD! Cloud is one lucky dude to have gotten the chance
to watch those things, I mean her, grow throughout childhood!
Tifa is a member of AVALANCHE,
which is a group opposed to the Shinra organization in their hometown of Midgar.
She's a strong-willed, gorgeous brunette who helps the protagonist, Cloud,
numerous times along his journey. She also doubles as a bartender at a place
called "7th Heaven Bar". A name that undoubtedly stems from the feeling patrons
get upon entering and seeing Tifa and her fabulous physique.
Final Fantasy VII is, in my
opinion, one of the best in the franchise, despite being so old and having such
outdated graphics. The story was rich and engaging, and even heartbreaking at
points. The appearance of Tifa only makes the game that much better!
It was hard to not
include Aerith in this list, but having three FF characters seemed a little
much. Although she's amazing, this article is about the best of the best in game
industry 'T' and 'A'!
Sophitia from Soul Calibur
Look at Sophitia's new Soul Calibur
4 look! She's so hot! Don't you just want to comfort her and lay your head in
between those big boobies? Sophitia is definitely my Soul Calibur girl pick,
she's beautiful and blonde with a banging body, for starters, and I love her
Greek look and attire. Very "delicate Spartan woman" meets "sexy, bosomy blonde
Sophitia is a triple threat! She
can fight and take care of herself, she's immensely seductive and she can cook!
Outside of her fighting and healing do-gooder career, she works in her family's
Greek bakery! What man, or woman, wouldn't love having this buxom babe cook them
Damn! Soul Calibur
chicks are on fire!
Helena Douglas from Dead or Alive
Another fighting game darling,
coming this time from the ruler of all fighters-featuring-sexy-girls, is Helena.
Helena is a curvy, ample-bosomed blonde (I'm sure you can see somewhat of a
pattern forming here!) from Dead or Alive.
Dead or Alive is infamous for its
Xtreme Beach Volleyball installment which depicted the sexiest girls from the
franchise in risqué bikinis playing a lot of volleyball. Yes, that means a
plethora of jumping and bouncing virtual boobage! Although semi-pointless, the
installment was pretty acclaimed, and for the obvious reasons.
Helena is an Opera singer living in
America with French origin. I can see how she could store an epic set of lungs
in that roomy chest! The knockout first debuted in Dead or Alive 2. Her soft
facial features and radiant blue eyes might make you think she's weak, but since
the misdirected assassination of her mother, she has been a leader in the Dead
or Alive Tournament Executive Committee and a champion in the tournaments
themselves. Can't get enough of her regal appearance and that superb French
Morrigan Aensland from Darkstalkers
Morrigan Aensland, what more can I
say about this sexy succubus? She's vain, a powerful seductress and has curves
in all the right places, with bat wings everywhere else. Her wings are so
badass; they can morph into different blades and weapons she can use to
incapacitate her foes. She can even detach them from her back as separate
vampiric entities to fight alongside her.
Unlike most other beauties from
famous fighter titles that have made their way onto my list, she's not fighting
for revenge, honor or a noble cause, this green-haired blood sucker fights just
for the excitement of doing so. How hot is a natural blood lust?
I love this girl because she's so
good at being bad. Her tiny waist and sexy black thong teddy outfit show off her
bounding cleavage, and her shapely legs are covered in bat-printed stockings.
There's nothing that isn't arousing about this batgirl. So what Morrigan is
conceited? After all, the feeling is definitely justifiable!
Bonne Jenet from King of Fighters
Jennie Behrn often goes by Bonne
Jenet, or just B. Jenet, but whatever you choose to call her, it is obvious why
this mischievous blonde beauty has made my top 20 list! She's got those
ambrosial blue peepers and an ample amount of chest attachments that just about
any pirate would swoon over! Yes, that's right, this apparently sweet babe isn't
your average fighter girl; she's a swashbuckling pirate!
B. Jenet fills many King of
Fighters titles with her sultry antics and curvaceous frame. Appearing in the
first tournament solely for monetary gain and then terrorizing the cast of
Garou: Mark of the Wolves, joining their tournament as well to, you guessed it,
plunder and pillage! I love this chick because her looks give off an innate
sense of physical perfection, and her story is interesting and unorthodox. It's
no wonder two completely different franchises decided to show off this
privileged pirate! You'll never be bored with B.!
Felicia from Darkstalkers
Morrigan isn't the only amazing
female specimen that claims Darkstalkers as her origin, nor is she the most
captivating! Meet Felicia, though I am sure you're already familiar with her
scratch, the cat girl has purred and meowed her sweet little ass into my virtual
sexy party, and there she has remained.
Originally meant to take on
Morrigan's role of the sultry, sexy seductress, Felicia has somewhat changed
abruptly during development. When developers realized she would fit the cutesy
chick role, they switched her with Morrigan, making the batty babe a succubus.
Felicia first appears on screen in Capcom's Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors and
has since appeared in many puzzle fighters, pocket fighters and other
Darkstalkers franchise releases.
I, myself, love Felicia's curves,
flowing blue (or sometimes pink) hair and some kind of furry, white outfit that
barely covers anything. She's always been at the top of my list, and one of the
sexiest women I have had the pleasure of controlling in-game to date. Can you
imagine those claws scratching at your bare back? Anyway, Felicia first wowed me
in Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, and I have been an avid Felicia-natic ever since!
Out of all of the female feline humanoids (and there are so freaking many!) that
anime, comics or games could envision, Felicia is the obvious champion in my
book! You rock, Felicia, we love to see those purr-fect assets of yours in
Ayumi from X-Blades
So, to start off about this one, I
am going to be perfectly honest and admit I have never heard of, or played a
single minute of, Ayumi's hailing game, X-Blades. I found her recently while
surfing through titles that got sub-par reviews and I am excited to pick up a
copy and find out how this is possible with such an amazing front woman.
Now you're probably thinking, how
could a chick that has such a supposed poor game be so high up on my list? Well,
that image above is not the product of some over-sexed artist fantasizing about
a normally covered-up video game babe... it's the actual cover art of the game!
Ayumi bounds around the entire story in nothing but a skimpy G-string and some
leg guards and bracers! This mesmeric cutie also has some really kick-ass gun
blades, making her even more provocative.
X-Blades looks like a really
interesting action-adventure slasher game, with decent graphics and an
interesting user interface. I'm excited to sink my teeth into the title, as well
as set my eyes on Ayumi's bare butt cheeks!
Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros
Duh, who else but Princess freaking
Toadstool herself could be my number one pick? Despite the fact that she spends
all of her time in a generous amount of pink fabric that makes up her
goody-covering princess ensemble, she's still the hottest around! Whoever
required a hot girl to be near-nude all the time was a fool... Okay, maybe not.
Want proof of the princess's
prestige? Every virtual man wants her! Bowser is constantly containing her,
selfishly, within his dungeon while Mario consistently jeopardizes his life in
order to traverse the castles and bring her back just for a peck on the cheek,
and Luigi often follows out of pure love for the princess. That's not all, the
lovely princess even turned the mild-mannered Donkey Kong (under the guise of a
different name, I don't care what you say!) into a kidnapping caper back in her
more rebellious redhead days! Then again, who wouldn't risk it all for a shot at
seeing her as pictured above, au natural with her tantalizing royal body at your
Princess Peach Toadstool has made
dozens of appearances in Mario Bros games over the last couple decades, with her
initial role being in the 1985 Super Mario Bros. She was not only a distressed
damsel, she's been a playable heroine in many sequels as well, starting out as a
kick-butt parasol-wielding dream girl as early as Super Mario Bros 2!
I love the Princess because she's
absolutely perfect! She has the biggest, bluest eyes I've ever seen, the cutest
puckered lip expressions (perfect for a certain insertion *wink-wink*), a perky
disposition and the sexiest curves fitted on a small, delicate structure! Not
only does this blondie wear the crown in the Mushroom Kingdom, she won the crown
of my absolute sexiest, jaw dropping beauties in the video game universe... and
she's held the title since before I was born! All hail the perfection that is
Meanwhile, In Tara Land...
While we are still on the topic of
jaw-dropping video game girls, I'd like to address publicly the fact that
somehow inspiring a video game character has always been a dream of mine,
(alongside writing for an awesome gaming site like Impulse Gamer!) or even
simply helping with motion capture production would be an honor. I think I would
completely qualify as a brutal contender in an action-adventure, a scantily-clad
tough chick in a fighter, or even a delicate troubled babe waiting for her
prince! Bias aside, I'll let the readers and fans here at Impulse Gamer decide
whether or not I am worthy. I've added a supplemental little treat this time;
enjoy the Tara Babcock art gallery!
