Four figures stand in a reception area while a fifth sits behind a desk. A dialogue box overlay says, 'Julietta: She's got it all wrong... It's not about the face! A guy's butt is easily the best part!'

"7th Dragon III Code: VFD features several queer themes and characters. Firstly, when creating a character, the game allows you to choose a style (which are femme or masc) but does not ask you to assign a gender or pronouns to yourself. NPCs use they/them pronouns when referring to you and your squad members (who can also be created by the player).

The game allows players to change their looks and name any time, allowing for gender fluidity if desired.

7th Dragon III Code features simple dating mechanics, where thirteen characters are dateable regardless of the player-character's appearance. The game encourages the player to date all the characters by rewarding rare equipment and items for each romance storyline. They can be dated polyamorously, though this isn't addressed in-game explicitly.

Julietta, a major character, uses he/him pronouns and gets angry when people use his old name.

Dialogue implies some same-gender attraction between romanceable characters, beyond their attraction for the player-character.

One side quest includes a man asking the player-character to deliver flowers to Julietta, who is in love with him.

Chika—a romanceable NPC—doesn't care about the age, gender, race, or species of her dates, and explicitly says so in dialogue.

The cover of this game features a relationship between two women on a date, which is a bold choice as a promotional image for the game."
