People say that love is blind, but can it be blind enough to not notice that there is a whole other dimension that is missing?
The waifu-bait strategy is working for games like Genshin Impact and Overwatch, and it’s working for other games, too!
At least it works for me.
It comes from the Japanese word for “wife.” If you’re a fan of Western anime and manga, you’ve been using the term “2D partner” for a long time now. It has also made its way into the mainstream geek culture as well.
But for gamers, these 2D heart-throbs aren’t anything new. We just didn’t have a word for it.
So let’s take a look at some pretty women in video games that we’d like to call “mai waifu.”
Resident Evil 0 is the name of the game
With Rebecca Chambers, we start our waifu pageant. She is the cutest character in Resident Evil, no question about it!
She looks like a button and can handle a gun.
She’s also a little bit of a genius, which is why she works for the BSAA as a biochemistry advisor.
Before Rebecca was even 18 years old, she was sent into the Arklay Mountains as the medic for STARS Bravo Team. She is the only one who makes it out alive.
Bioshock Infinite is a game.
Flying city Columbia is mostly about protecting Elizabeth, the daughter of Father Comstock. She is his heir to his cult, and you have to keep her safe.
She may be a little shy, but this has also made her a free spirit. She was kept in a tower like Rapunzel for years.
Elizabeth doesn’t want to be safe in her tower. She wants to see all that the world has to offer instead.
If you like to go on adventures, Elizabeth would be a great waifu for you.
She can even make space-time tear!
Street Fighter is a game.
It was Chun-Li who was one of the first female characters in arcades, making her one of the first “waifu.”
There were some things about her that made her stand out from the rest of the people working for Interpol:
She was cool, but not always hot.
When Street Fighter artists started to work on her thighs over time, they started to add a little bit of weight to them.
Chun-thick, Li’s muscular legs have never been more important in this day and age of thigh-high socks and sexy leggings.
Final Fantasy XV is a game.
Car-lovers from all over the world would fight to the death for a chance to make the star of Hammerhead Service Station their “waifu.”
This beautiful girl is the daughter of the royal mechanic who worked for the last monarch.
From her grandfather, she has learned how to do things like this.
If she can keep and even improve the FF version of a Rolls Royce, surely she can do the same for your Toyota Corolla.
If you like Cindy, you should look at her. She is Square’s sexiest waifu, and she is very happy.
Fire Emblem Awakening is a game.
Fire Emblem is known for having a fun cast and beautiful waifus.
Then, if I had to choose, I don’t think I could pick better than the cute and supportive Nowi.
Because this dragon girl looks young, you’re not going to be able to keep up with her.
In fact, she’s been alive for more than 1,000 years, and even has her own children by the time you finish Fire Emblem Awakening.
Despite being sold into slavery at a young age, Nowi is still hopeful. She still has a long life ahead of her.
This is the name of the game.
A lot of good waifu candidates come from the Disgaea series, which keeps pumping cute demons, artificial life forms, and everything else into the world.
“MAI WAIFU!” was one of the first things I said when I saw Etna, an ambitious demon loli in a 2000s rave girl outfit.
As a demon, Etna doesn’t have the most pleasant personality. Even her best friend, Laharl, doesn’t trust her all that much, because she’s afraid of her.
People who like people who might step on them and call it a reward will like her.
: Fate/Extra: The Game
The Fate franchise has come a long way since the visual novel days, in significant part thanks to the immensely popular mobile gacha game Fate/Grand Order.
It was a big thing for Nero, who went from “the red Saber” to one of the most sought-after waifus of all time.
Emperor: She is the fifth Emperor of Rome. She is very good at music and likes the arts. She was also very attractive during her time as an Emperor.
Nero Claudius is the Caesar for you if you want a girl who calls you by Roman political names.
Overwatch is a game that you can play.
From the start, D.Va (real name: Hana Song) has set herself apart from the rest of the Overwatch waifu field.
Because of how she shows off her slim figure in a tight bodysuit, she’s become a lot more well-known.
There are lots of people who look like D.Va on social media platforms like Instagram and Tik Tock because cosplaying is so easy and looks so sexy, so a lot of people do it.
She has a backstory that many gamers can relate to, and even one that is a little idealistic.
After all, who wouldn’t want to go from being a professional StarCraft player to being a well-known MEKA pilot?
I don’t think Azur Lane is a unique game with new gameplay or anything like that, but they have good waifus! The game, which was made in China, was released in 2017 and has Japanese anime-style illustrations that make it a hit with gamers. Soon after, the game came out in Japan, and it quickly took the Japanese market by storm.
As you might expect, rivals like DMM’s KanColle noticed that Azur Lane was using the term “” KanMusume (Fleet Girls), which DMM filed for a trademark for in 2014. In 2018, KanColle warned Azur Lane about using the term. Azur Lane quickly apologised and changed all of its use of KanMusume to “.” (Battleship Girls). People still love the game, even though this hasn’t stopped it.
Honkai Impact 3rd
In one of the best mobile RPGs, there are waifus. This makes the game even better. Honkai Impact 3rd is different from the other games on this list because it doesn’t have a lot of different characters. Instead, the game only has a few characters, but they have different looks and battlesuits that you can get. This means that each battlesuit gives your waifu a new look.
The animations in this game are very well done, and they look very good. All of the moves in the game look great, from simple moves to the eye-catching special moves. This makes playing the game a real treat for the eyes. You can really connect with your favourite waifu in the game because each character has a lot of history. Check out the gameplay for the new open-world mode. It’s really fun!
It’s hard to figure out what Iron Saga is. The game is somewhere between a waifu collector and a mecha collector. It has waifus, but it also has some really cool mechas. One could say that this is a man’s love story.
Iron Saga’s gameplay is not for everyone. It’s a game that requires a certain kind of taste. In the same way that most mobile games do, the game has full auto-combat, which works well enough. The ARPG/Arcade shooter gameplay works, but it leaves you wanting more from the gameplay. There are some ways to customise the mechas in the game. It’s a shame, because the character and mecha designs in the game are so great.
You can tell just by looking at the characters in Iron Saga that it’s a good game. For people who don’t want to spend money on games, Iron Saga might be the right choice.
