5 Video Game Character Redheads That We Prefer By Our Side



The rare gene mutation responsible for red hair can be beautiful or leave you short for words. Redheads immediately stand out from the crowd, even if some of them may be introverts. A red-haired female may have you thinking about Wendy’s (the ultra-popular fast-food chain) and a red haired male may have you thinking about Carrot Top (a stand-up comedian), but that is because you may hardly see red-haired people on the daily basis.

Technically, Lita from the WWE is a red-haired video game character, being featured in the numerous wrestling games (like WWF No Mercy, WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role, WWE WrestleMania X8, WWE 2K18, WWE 2K19, WWE 2K20, and more). 5 video game character redheads that we prefer by our side.

4. Misty (Pokémon): 

Misty (known in Japan as Kasumi) is a hot-tempered, outspoken Gym Leader at the Cerulean Gym, specializing in Water-type Pokemon. Her yellow crop-top, suspenders and borderline Daisy Dukes compliments her tip-top shape, but she detests fruits and vegetables, not having to worry about her diet. 

Most of us remember Misty for following Ash Ketchum around, accusing him of destroying her bike. Eventually, Ash gets her a new bike and she still follows him. Friendships can be difficult. 

A traumatic event in Misty’s childhood made her terrified of Gyarados, when she crawled into the mouth of the serpentine Pokémon and was almost swallowed by it. When Misty took a poison attack from a Tentacruel, to stop Gyarados from being hurt, she overcame her fear, as well as gained the Water-type Pokémon’s trust. 

3. Aloy (Horizon Zero Dawn): 

Born in 3021, Aloy trains as a warrior, to win a ritual competition, with a task to discover her mother’s identity, she has to stop a cult that worships AI (artificial intelligence). Aloy’s physical likeness is actually based on Hannah Hoekstra (a Dutch actress). 

It is speculated that Aloy’s name could very well be inspired by H.G. Wells’ book called The Time Machine, involving a man traveling forward in time and encountering the “Eloi” (an advanced race of humans). Another thought is that her name can be a deviation of alloy (which is a material that’s a result of the combination of different metals) and Rost (her father’s name) can be a deviation of rust.

2. Mary Jane (Spider-Man): 

Mary Jane Watson is a strong-willed independent, green-eyed redhead from New York City. She is Peter Parker’s love interest and next-door neighbor. Desperate to escape her abusive, alcoholic father, she dreams of a future in either Broadway or film and while her career takeoff is shown more in comic books (being model and actress) she knew all along that Peter Parker was Spider-Man. 

The same night Uncle Ben died, Mary Jane saw Peter run into his house and emerge from an upstairs window as Spider-Man. Only if Peter used his spider-senses to spot Mary watching him. Maybe the unrevealed plot twist, is that Peter Parker knew Mary was watching him. If Mary did not see Peter Parker appearing to be Spider-Man, do you ever wonder if she would want more than a friendship with Peter Parker?

1. Kasumi (Dead or Alive): 

Kasumi is a teenage ninja princess and a popular sex symbol in video games. Kasumi’s hairstyles are a high ponytail, side ponytail, braids, and her hair down. She can be seen wearing a blue-and-white puff sleeve tunics with swans in the skirt, a white-and-red tunic with blossom petals on the skirt, a black and pink full bodysuit with a metal visor, and stylish clothing.
