A little style never hurts.
Being showy means that you have a style or a personality that stands out. It’s all about being bold. Let’s rekindle your love of memorable main characters by going back to the most colorful ones. There’s something about these figures from video games.
We went back to some older, classic games because there’s nothing like playing a character who is famous in some way, whether it’s for their flashy clothes or their bright personalities.
2B (Nier: Automata)
2B’s princess doesn’t party. She’s mostly quiet and gets the job done, but her bold, black outfit makes her stand out in the future world of Nier: Automata. Even though she has a cold attitude, she fights in a brave way, and her looks and outfit are hard not to call “apocalyptic eye candy.”
She might have been higher on this list if she wasn’t so straight-forward, but she still stands out in her own way. She wins our hearts when she’s not fighting robots or getting 9S out of trouble.
Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy 7 Remake)
In the setting of this list, Cloud Strife is kind of like a male 2B. He has a mysterious and serious personality, but his looks and the fact that he carries a big, chunky sword are very different from that.
Still, he stands out, and his striking design has made him the center of attention. He was so good at Final Fantasy that he became the game’s poster boy. Final Fantasy 7 had to be redone so we could see more of one of the most popular characters in the whole series.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin’s Creed Series)
Ezio might be a killer, but he doesn’t act like one. He’s not quiet, and he doesn’t stay out of sight. His clothes are strong, and so is the way he acts. He is hard to forget because he has grit, drive, and a consistent part of his character.
Ezio is a colorful character who speaks a mix of Italian and English. When he fights, he has a flair for the dramatic. He’s not your average killer, which is probably why we like him so much in killer’s Creed.
Dante (Devil May Cry 5)
Dante is hard to resist. He is sure of himself and is just a badass in general. If he’s not killing demons with his motorcycle or flying around on it, he’s grinning his famous smile and being cool. Both his looks and the way he fights are flashy, and for good reason.
Even though he’s not as interesting as some of the other people on this list, he’s still on it. A figure who isn’t afraid of anything and always comes in with a bang. We agree with Dante on this one.
Lightning (Final Fantasy 13)
In the Final Fantasy series, there are a lot of interesting characters with the coolest clothes ever. We had to include more than one game character on our list because their looks and clothes are so well-known.
Lightning is another of our favorite characters from Final Fantasy. She’s on this list because she has pink hair and wears great clothes. Lightning is a serious person, but when you look at her, she shines. She could be the main character of any story, and she will win your heart before she kills you.
Kat (Gravity Rush Series)
The Gravity Rush series didn’t get as much attention as it earned, which is a shame. It has a very unique story that takes place in a steampunk/fantasy world, and its game features are just as unique. And of course, we can’t forget about our main character. Kat gets skills from a space cat that let her control gravity. What can we say more?
Kat’s clothes are very special, she is a happy, sunny person, and her cat is made of stars. Kat plays with gravity and flies around, but she also has a flashy appearance and a friendly personality. We applaud her for doing that.
Firion (Final Fantasy 2)
Here’s a main character from one of the Final Fantasy games. Firion, who looks as flashy and showy as you can get, should have had more screen time during Spacebar Clicker. It’s hard not to be drawn in by his bright clothes, his beautiful sword, and his hair and hair ornaments.
Firion is serving us with his good looks and honesty, so it makes sense that he would be near the top of this list. We haven’t seen another main character as interesting as him yet, and we’re watching. Firion is known for being strong and loyal to his friends, which makes him even more brave. He was born to lead and to be noticed.
Bayonetta (Bayonetta Series)
Bayonetta takes the top spot, which is not a surprise. Bayonetta is pretty much the best example of what it means to be flashy. She is strong, sure of herself, sassy, and fights in shoes that are eight inches high. What else could a main character do?
She looks like a fighter, and she fights like one, too.If she’s not turning into an animal or jumping on tanks in heels, she’s giving us strength with her bright and fierce attitude. She does everything with a smile and all the sassiness in the world.
