"If the motherfucking director for BLiNX 2 doesn't know if Pelon's male or female, I say it's up in the air." - FinalSoraRiku (yea im quoting you)

Granted he probably hasn't thought about Pelon in ages but you'd still expect him to know. Just when I thought I was about to get the answer, I discovered I was still a step behind! But I'm stubbon and persistent when it comes to BLiNX.

I sent this to Ohshima a day after he replied as a second push, and it worked in my favour! The next day he finally confirmed with the art director (either Masamichi Harada or Noriko Omizo) that Pelon is indeed male!

Officially Pelon is male, but is begs the question... why is Pelon so femmy in the first place? There's a lot of room for headcanon there.

Welp, Pelon is going to be the new 'Did you assume my gender" meme of the Blinx community. I love this.

Sorry to Jonatan, I suppose, but if it's any consolation, there's definitely no escaping how androgynous Pelon is.  The debate over his sex went on for well over a decade, so I'd say it's pretty clearly unknown aside from word of god stuff (not that you can't just ignore that and take the game for what it is, I guess).

Still, though, I'm going to hold onto this whole ordeal for how humorous it is.  Also kind of nice that I don't have to try to justify Pelon being female with regard to the dimorphism, alongside having to correct my past references to him.

Now I just find myself wondering why he's so damn femmy in the first place.

Aw... well, we could say he's the first trans character! Or... all those who drew him as female gotta go back and correct their atrz. ;o

And perhaps it was the common dub mistake? Renamon was originally male until the english dub...

Nah, not a dub mistake.  Voice acting for BLiNX 2 was ever recorded once and was done in North America in English (meaning the Japanese version also has English voices).  IGN's Developer Diaries articles make it sound like the voice acting operation in NA kept pretty closely in touch with Microsoft and Artoon, too, so I doubt there were any miscommunications of the sort.

I'm happy enough leaving Pelon's sex up to headcanon while pointing people to Ohshima's confirmation of him being male for anybody wanting the closest we have to official proof.

Yeah I guess. But still, saying he's trans is a good compromise, male wanting to be female sorta thing.
