Bridget is a highly feminine young man from the Guilty Gear game series, reknowned for being one of the most significant traps on the internet, and the mixed feelings he gives to people once they find out. The large number of people who feel attraction to the character even after learning the truth has led to the popular phrase, “Everybody is Gay for Bridget”. He is occasionally used to troll people in places such as 4chan, tricking people who are unaware of his true gender.
Released in the arcades in 2002 and later ported to the PS2 in late 2002/early 2003, Guilty Gear XX is the third installment in the Guilty Gear fighting game series, the brainchild of creator/illustrator/composer Daisuke Ishiwatari , famed for their rock-based soundtracks and graphics.
Amongst the characters first introduced in the game was Bridget. The backstory behind his androgynous appearence is that he was one of two male twins, born in a town where same gendered twins were considered a bad omen, so his parents decided to raise him as a girl to avoid trouble.Bridget is actually voiced by a girl, which along with his appearence tricked many a gamer into mistaking his gender, despite it being explained ingame.
The trap nature of Bridget is even acknowledged in one of the games endings, in which the character of Johnny tries to hit on him, and feels disgusted upon learning the truth, stating “I can’t believe I tried to seduce another man…”
TV Tropes has a trope named after the character, “Dropped a Bridget on Him”, which refers to when a character suddenly discovers another to be of the opposite gender, often being shocked and suprised at this.
