The Top 7... "That’s a Dude!?" game characters

Proof of Penis
- Voted ORICON Magazine's #1 "Sexiest Male Singer"
- Shirtless pics available for all ages

This J-Pop star has made quite the name for himself for by not looking like a “him” at all. Evidently, his gender defying persona is so popular he’s made numerous successful jumpsto films, anime and games. Yes, he appears in FFVII's Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core, but our boss has asked that we trim down androgynous Squaresoftentrants from "billions" to "several."

Instead, we’d rather point to his starring role in Bujingai: The Forsaken City, the stylish Devil May Cry knock-off that time forgot. Armed with a massive sword, acrobatics a’plenty and the cutest set of earrings you’ve ever seen, Bujingai rose above the glut of "me too" hack-and-slashers. Praised for its winning presentation and intuitive combat, most of America still couldn’t get past the perceived notion of playing as a transvestite. Too bad for you, Jethro.

Shades of Lady:
- Dressed as a nun
- His name is... C’mon, just look at him!

Proof of Penis
- Several pictures readily available on the internet we can’t post here
- Outside of being a dude, not much

Story time! Bridget was born unto a village where two twins of the same gender are considered bad luck. So to avoid the Spartan baby pile, he was raised as a she, and remains completely baffled as to why he's confused for a woman. Evidently, Bridget would like to make efforts to appear a little manlier, but unfortunately, none of them include not dressing as a sex-starved lady of the cloth.


Shades of Lady:
- Red hair bow
- Eye mascara
- PINK!
- Lays f***ing eggs!

Proof of penis:
- Nothing... Except for this!


No matter how many times we report this little factoid, it still raises an eyebrow or two. Do you have any idea how many young boys this pink... thing helped usher into manhood? Thefact that Birdo is"made of dude" is just as shocking now, as it was to the seven or so people who actually read the instruction manualin 1988. Especially when maleslusting after Ms. Pac-Man, Minnie Mouse and Smurfette realized their heterosexuality hinged on something so flimsy as a hair accessory.

As far as the West is concerned, Birdo is all lady now but we know the truth and support him nonetheless. In case the rest of the article wasn’t an indication, Japan doesn’t have near as many hang-ups comparedto the US when it comes to transgendered characters, and it's acourtesy also extended to gay dinosaurs. But just in casewe haven’t rocked your conventional sexualities to theirvery core,wegotta hit you with a classic screen guaranteed to befuddle boners until the end of days.
