There are always characters that stick out for all the right reasons in games and in series -- because they're absolutely fabulous.
In this short list, we will visit some of the fiercest characters in their respective games. Using the criteria of: Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent (thanks Rupaul), we have selected 5 awesome characters for your viewing pleasure. Each of these characters posses an awesome flair that gives sass to their game. Lets begin!
Leblanc is cocky and self-centered, which makes her perfect for the number 5 spot. Badass in her own right as the leader of the Leblanc Syndicate, she is your rival for much of Final Fantasy X-2. She's not all wit and sass, however -- she does have a soft spot for people who have nowhere else to go (often taking them in as one of her own). So not only is she is fierce and fashionable, she also has a heart of gold (which she probably stole) as well.
Jean Armstrong is the proud owner of Trés Bien in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. He loves to do non-passing drag, and boy does he look fabulous doing so. His French Maiden drag persona, Claurice, possesses all the qualities to make even the most seasoned drag queens blush. Jean is a bit of a kleptomaniac, which is how he ends up in jail in the game. Even though he is a thief, we love him and he has managed to steal a spot on this list.
As one of the OG fabulous game characters, Vega swipes his way into the 3rd spot on our list. This beautiful narcissist from Spain has been stealing hearts since his first appearance as a boss character in Street Fighter II. He values beauty over anything else -- which is why he wears a mask when he fights, to protect the gorgeousness of his face. In fact, Vega is so fabulous and vain that his mansion is beautifully decorated with portraits, all of him. With his long golden braided hair and nails perfectly manicured to a point, how could we not put him on this list?
Mega Amphros on the list may come to you all as a shock (#punsofdamage) but this Pokémon has some serious fabulous staying power. Amphros goes from from drab to fab in a single Mega Evolution. There is even tons of fan art that has this Pokémon as the spokesperson for hair products like L'Oreal and Vidal Sassoon.
We could not make a list talking about fabulous characters without the Gem Knight himself. Taking the top spot is Taric from League of Legends. This champion has been fabulous since his release back in 2009. Now, he has a new visual update to finally match the beauty that the whole League of Legends community has seen in him from the beginning. In addition to a visual update, Riot Games has updated Taric's lore as well. This beautiful yet fallen knight now has a compelling story that makes him seem more human and less ethereal. Regardless of his past, connoisseurs of beauty and "fabulousness" will find that his gems are truly outrageous.
