League of legends

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.


Do you agree? Disagree? Feel like we missed someone? Comment below with your thoughts!


2. Mega Amphros

Pokémon X & Y

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.


3. Vega

Street Fighter

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?


4. Jean Armstrong

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations

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.


5. Leblanc

Final Fantasy X-2

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.


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!

Capcom changed Ken's look in Street Fighter five and players aren't happy about it Mon, 04 Apr 2016 14:31:26 -0400 JunaeBenne

The latest Street Fighter V updates have given Ken a new look...again, and gamers don’t seem to like this one. Ken’s new look is like a shoryuken to the face; expected but still a surprise! Capcom, you’ve got some ‘splaning to do!

Ken's new haircut that came with the updates is what has the Fighting Game Community button's in a jam. Quiet a few characters received new looks but Ken’s military, Johnny Cage looking hair cut is definitely the least favorite. The characters that have new outfits are:

Chun-Li & Vega

R. Mika & Cammy

Rashid too!


The original reveal of Ken’s new hairstyle and outfit for Street Fighter V was accepted with open arms, although with the original reveal some gamers noted he does look a bit darker than usual. That could just be the determination right? Ryu always looks angry and no one gives him guff so let Ken have his angry face.

While many gamers weren't thrown off by Ken’s new look, others did make fun of his bangs saying they look like bananas. SFV producer, Yoshinori Ono defended Ken's new look, saying:

“We heard that people aren't happy with the changes we made to Ken, but be sure that we're not changing him because we hate him. We think everybody will understand why we made those changes by playing the story mode we’ll be announcing eventually. I also want to add that what he has on his head is definitely not a banana!”


SFV players seem to only have a problem with Ken's new appearance, as there hasn't been any disapproval over other characters' outfits. In fact, many  players have protested the look with parody images and memes. You can see a few of these below.

Vega revealed as Street Fighter V's latest character Mon, 03 Aug 2015 07:42:45 -0400 Phillip W

Capcom has released an introduction trailer for the newest character returning to Street Fighter V, Vega.

Vega, an original Street Fighter II villain, retains most of his major features. He is still a beautiful, blonde narcissist. With age, however, Vega has decided to put on an extra layer of clothes.

In the gameplay department, Vega still has his iconic claw, and his original wall bounce shenanigans. The trailer does show off a couple of Vega's new abilities. Vega's new techniques include an evade counter, then a new attack in which Vega does follow-up attack after his normal dive attack, and a new technique where he throws a rose at a opponent and does a dive attack to wherever the opponent is.

Street Fighter V is due for release at some point in early 2016. In the meantime, Capcom is going to have multiple beta tests, so hopefully fans can have an early look at the new Vega sometime soon.
