In Persona 3 Portable (part of the Persona series), players can choose to play as a female protagonist, though in the original Persona 3 they can only play as a male protagonist. However, the female character doesn’t have the dating options the male protagonist does (Alexander, 2010). Aigis, a cyborg character, can fall in love with her. Also, Mitsuru has a homoerotic relationship with the female protagonist, but there is not an actual relationship option. Additionally, the female protagonist can go on dates with Elizabeth, which can eventually lead to implied sex with her off-screen.
