Adol, Crono, Roy (from Fire Emblem)

I can't think of any other male redhead or ginger (ew) main protags.

Tellingly, none from a western dev. Any ideas?

Also uh, not the protag but the kid in God of War. Lots of good NPCs and women, struggling to think of more male protags.

Ryu in the original Street Fighter was depicted as a red head.

Mieu from Phantasy Star III. She's not a protagonist, but stays in your party through all the generations alongside Wren.

Not little backup buddybuddy characters either
Ron Weasley can fuck off.

I don't know if that disqualifies Crack Down.

The Castlevania Chronicles art I wouldn't count either, Red Hair as an arrange mode quirk, not Simon Belmont as per the original vision.

Definitely bonus points for Western devs.

Sorry, I'll edit OP.

More than protags I'm looking more for the *main* hero.
Iori exists to be Kyo's rival, right?

Oops, blame it on the lack of sleep.

Spike from Ape Escape should count.

Mag Launcher, Evolution series.

Justin, Grandia. (In game his hair looks brown, brilliant red in official art)

I want to say I've glimpsed a fair handful of suitable "Scottish Highland Warrior" styled protags on box art over the years, though they were pretty much always games from genres I didn't play. :P You could probably also add a couple more anime-styled entries depending on how deep into pinkish or orange territory you're willing to venture.

If you're willing to extend to Brazillian indie puzzle games:

On a machine with EGA or Tandy graphics, the Prince of Persia has red hair.

Can we count Fuuma from World Heroes and Aggressors of Dark Kombat? He's the Ken to Hanzo's Ryu.

Also, Shizumaru Hisame from Samurai Shodown III onwards.

Oh, Specineff mentioning Fuuma made me remember another redheaded Fuuma.

Image
Getsu Fuuma from Famicom title Getsu Fuuma Den.

Yep, Shizumaru was legit Sam Sho III's protagonist. I was also gonna mention KOF Maximum Impact's protagonist Alba, but he and his series are rather second-string. :wink:

Image

Also coming to mention Getsu Fuuma (based on the same historical figure as SNK's Fuuma). A headliner and also a bad motherfucker, not many characters I can think of that are pictured graphically slaying their foes on their refractive boxart. :cool:

Image
(read R to L, manga-style! you are already dead! *arterial spray*)

Iten Hadou Kagura is a great doujin AST too, easily pro-standard.

That reminds me the Genpei Touma Den games and Kubiki Quantam Fighter/Jigoku Gokurakumaru also have a main character with red hair (or a wig).
