We need more female characters

  • DS vanilla only has Willow, Wendy, and Wickerbottom. With RoG Wigfrid is added. With SW Walani is added. That's five. I'm not going to count the number of male characters but I think it's over ten in total. Which would be more than twice the number of female characters. I feel like Klei needs to make it a LOT more balanced, and it would be interesting to have a female character with a more tomboyish aspect to them. Does anyone have input on this?

    • POST A CHARACTER IDEA YOU [whatever you are]. SERIOSLY, MAKE A CHARACTER. MOD THEM, OR MAKE A GREAT IDEA, SO GREAT KLEI WILL IMPLEMENT IT JUST LOOK AT THE CHARACTER IDEA  "Wren" It's completely splendid. Also, there are MODS that feature female characters, Just get defaults mod pack, for instance

    • There are 7 male human characters, 5 female human characters, a robot, a spider, and a monkey. 7:5 isn't bad (it's the smallest possible deviation from 6:6 in a group of 12 people), though any of the last three could also be considered "male". It's possible that Maxwell prefers dudes. You got a problem with subtle LGBT undertones?

      Also, I second the above comment. Lots of mods are available with "female" characters.  It's unlikely Klei will add more characters; it seems like they're pretty much done adding stuff to DS, except some small stuff being added to DST.

    • What about Winona? Also, we know Webber and WX are male, that puts it 9:5, and Wilbur is a male name, so that would put it at 10:5. It's only a problem because of practically every video game only having male characters. If that could ever change... I would make a mod if I knew how to mod, as it is, I can't code at all, and probably won't ever learn.

    • WX-78 is not male. He is a ROBOT. Robots don't have gender.
      Webber is half spider half boy. Spiders in the DS World don't really have gender.
      Wilbur has a male name, but just because you have a male name doesn't mean you have to be male.
      Winona isn't a character yet.
      So, we have Wilson (M), Willow (F), Wolfgang (M), Wendy (F), WX-78 (N/A), Wickerbottom (F), Woodie (M), Wes (M) Waxwell (M), Wigfrid (F), Webber (1/2 M), Walani (F), Warly (M), Wilbur (?), and Woodlegs (M).
      This means that there are 7 1/2 males to 5 females (excluding all other and unknown characters (WX-78 + Wilbur)). It's actually pretty even. That's a differance of only 1.5 males every female, unlike *cough cough* some games.

      Wilbur is known as the Monkey King. so he is a male. Webber isn't half spider half boy. He's a boy inside a spider, so we have Wilbur and Webber. The spider that ate him could be female or male, and it can be taken into consideration since it is the reason Webber can befriend spiders at all.

    • Guys its a game. A VIDEO GAME!!! In DST, the female characters are honestly more used than males (excluding Maxy and Wolfgang).
