This is a list of transgender and genderqueer characters found in games. The characters are listed alphabetically.

Transgender are characters that were born as male or female but feel like they are the opposite gender.

Genderqueer are characters that fall somewhere inbetween. They don't feel like they are a man or a woman.

Birdo made her debut in 1988's Super Mario Bros. 2. In the released in-game description then, it stated that she was a boy who thinks he's a girl and likes to be called Birdetta and, from then on, Nintendo has usually been referring to Birdo as female. She started off in the antagonist team, but Birdo would eventually leave her evil ways and help Mario and Luigi, as she became a popular character from her inclusion in the Mario Kart series and other spin-off games. Birdo is often paired with Yoshi, and the two appear to have some chemistry.

Introduced in the third video game release from the Guilty Gear fighting series in 2002, Bridget appears to be your typical tween, blond bounty hunter who likes to rumble in nun attire and use a yo-yo in combat—but there's actually a surprise under the hem line. Bridget is actually a boy who was raised a girl, and he doesn't change his image since it's his (plus he really likes the nun costume), but do not call him a girl because he'll correct you—and maybe pummel you with his giant teddy bear.

A twenty-something Bulgarian Turk, trans woman, and assassin. Her willingness to put a job ahead of her own life gives her steady employment. While the bulk of her jobs entail grudges or handling problematic no-names, she starts to notice traces of interconnectedness in each of her jobs, having far grander repercussions than she could've ever imagined.

Making his debut in 2007's Tekken 6, Eleonor "Leo" Kliesen sparked up some controversy for the fighting series with players questioning Leo's gender, as it was never disclosed. The reasoning behind making Leo's gender ambiguous is attributed to the Bandai-Namco team that wanted to create a character that would be cherished by fans regardless of gender. However, in 2011's Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Leo was revealed to be female, and her full name is actually Eleonore.

In 1995's magical role-playing game, Chrono Trigger, we were introduced to the character named Flea, a magician of renowned boss-level strength in the game. Sporting pink hair, a skirt, and ample cleavage, he gave the greatest pro-trans video game line ever: “Male or female, what difference does it make? Power is beautiful, and I’ve got the power.” Along with that, he also has a "diva form" in which his character sprite gives challengers a hardy laugh or blows kisses.

Although raised as a girl, Krem realized he was different from the girls that he knew, and would often pretend to shave with his father. After reaching adulthood, Krem's mother began to pressure him to marry the son of a wealthy merchant to save the family from slavery. Krem refused, and his relationship with his mother was destroyed.

Capcom's fighting series, Final Fight, introduced the skimpy dressed Poison who started off on the antagonist team and was not playable at first. She was left out of the series until 1999, due to confusion of her gender. The questions of whether "is she or isn't she" always remained in future inclusions, and Final Fight developers said it was up to the viewer. However, as Poison has made her way into other Capcom franchises, such as Street Fighter and its Versus series, Capcom producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed that Poison is officially a post-op transsexual.

The release of Final Fantasy IX featured Quina Quen, a playable character from a genderless race who was referred throughout the game as she/he. As a comic relief character, Quina is on a eating quest to learn about world cuisine. She/he would eat enemies with a large tongue that's always hanging out, as the rest his/her race, and learn new abilities that way.
