Pansexual video game characters to remember on pansexual visibility day

Pansexual Visibility Day is a time to celebrate pansexual people, including characters from video games like Borderlands and Apex Legends.

Representation is extremely important in media because it allows people to see themselves reflected in the media they consume. Although June is still a week away, many in the LGBT community are gearing up to celebrate Pride Month, mostly because there were no in-person celebrations last year. Today, May 24, is Pansexual Visibility Day and a fantastic time to watch some of the most well-known pansexual characters in different video games.

A person who identifies as pansexual may find themselves more attracted to the person than to their gender. Gender identity and sex usually do not play a role in attracting a pansexual person to someone. Instead, the focus is more on personality than any sort of gender preference. Some video game characters have been confirmed to be pansexual, while others are seen as such by their fandoms.

Dragon Age: Inquisition – Iron Bull

Iron Bull is introduced in Dragon Age: Inquisition, the third BioWare game created Dragon age franchise. Originally it was meant to be a race specific romance because the Qunari are so tall and tall, but adjustments were made during development to allow for a romance between the Iron Bull and the Inquisitor. In addition to being the Qunari’s first love, players can love the Iron Bull regardless of the gender chosen for the Inquisitor. In a tweet from 2014, it was confirmed that the Iron Bull is pansexual and not just bisexual.

Just like Garrus and Tali in Mass effect 3, if the players don’t have sex with Iron Bull or Dorian Dragon Age: Inquisition they will create their own romance. Players can question either character about the relationship before defeating Corypheus. Their relationship can even be recognized during the Trespasser DLC with certain dialogue triggers.

Borderlands 3 – Zane Flynt

Zane Flynt is the Operative class character of Borderlands 3, although it was mentioned in the Borderlands 2 DLC, Commander Lilith and the fight for the sanctuary. While the Borderlands The franchise does not have any onscreen or playable romances, Zane is confirmed to be pansexual. Zane is a loner, but he’s extremely outgoing and even married in a few different star systems. Considering her sexuality, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that her spouses are all different genders.

Apex Legends – Fuse

Fuse - Zodiac Signs Apex Legends

Fuse’s bio in Apex Legends describes him as both a ladies’ man and a man, which has led to speculation over the label he would use. It was later confirmed on Twitter that Fuse was a pansexual character in Apex Legends. Players who want to play as an explosives enthusiast Fuse cannot do so automatically, however, as it was introduced in Season 8 of Apex Legends and must be unlocked separately from the base game.

Life is Strange 2 – Finn

Life is strange 2 introduced players to a new roster of characters, including Finn who was featured in Episode 2 of the game. Depending on the choices players make for Sean, he will get to know Finn better and he will discuss his sexuality. Finn states that he’s attracted to the person, not their gender, so many fans think Finn is pansexual despite not using an official label. The two can even share a kiss towards the end of Episode 3.

While there are many other characters who display sexual fluidity, not all of them identify as pansexual. Additionally, some sexually fluid characters are based on player choices, so the protagonist’s sexuality would change with each game. Pansexual Visibility Day is a time to celebrate being pansexual and these characters show how much there is to celebrate.

Apex Legends is now available for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
