Wondering if people like her because she's pretty or because they think she might be a decent character.

More popular because neckbeards would have a cool guy to get excited over.

Less popular, cause Lightningpervs wouldn't have anything to fantasy about at nights.

I can't really say.

On one hand, it would be a 180 degree change in everything about her. And on the other, she, or he, would feel like a unique character in video games (at least for me).

Yes because sexist gamers like badass male characters more.

I think the pink hair wouldn't have worked out, and neither the whole idea of her. Gonna be another cloud. So my answer is no. A large part of my initial liking to her was due to physical attributes, so yes, gender is important. It's not about prettiness, more like how many ladies were like that in games.

Would Joan of arc be as popular if she was a dude?
