    This isn't a question about how many female Transformers characters exists. But how many and which are the female toy molds.

    Please, don't count repurposed molds: Glyph is a female character but uses the Bumblebee mold; the same for Prime Slipstream or Cybertron Override. Beast Machines Strika counts, the mold is less feminine than Prime Starscream but it's done with her female character in mind.

    G1:
    • Minerva (she shares the mold with Nightbeat, but no one knows which came first)
    • Mega
    Beast Wars:
    • TM Blackarachnia
    • TM Airazor
    Beast Machines:
    • Blackarachnia
    • Strika
    Energon:
    • Arcee
    Cybertron:
    • Thunderblast
    Movie:
    • TFTM Arcee
    • ROTF Legends Arcee
    • ROTF Deluxe Arcee
    • ROTF FAB Arcee
    • ROTF HA Arcee
    • ROTF Deluxe Chromia
    • ROTF HA Chromia
    Animated:
    • Arcee
    • Blackarachnia
    Prime:
    • FE Arcee
    • PRID Arcee
    • Cyberverse Arcee
    • PRID Airachnid
    • Beast Hunters Ripclaw

    EDIT1 (2012/09/16 15:30): Added Beast Machines Blackarachnia and Strika, Cybertron Thunderblast, Transmetal Airazor and Blackarachnia; Added Energon Arcee, TFTM Arcee, ROTF Legends Arcee, ROTF Deluxe Arcee, ROTF FAB Arcee, ROTF HA Arcee, ROTF Deluxe Chromia and ROTF HA Chromia.

    EDIT2 (2012/09/18 01:02): Cosmetic changes in the list to make it easier to read. Added Minerva under "G1", she and Nightbeat shares the same mold, but nobody knows who was designed first.

    EDIT3 (2012/09/20 22:24): Added Mega. And added an explanation in "Minerva" entry.

    EDIT4 (2013/01/07 10:21): Added Transformers Prime Beast Hunters Ripclaw.

    Do the movie abominations count? I'm pretty sure they were supposed to be female.

    The pre TM2 Blackarachnia figure was a repaint of a male figure, Tarantulas.

    Nitro Convoy is male. Override was only changed to female in the English dub, the character was male in the Japanese dub. So the toy was designed to be male.

    BW Blackarachnia is a Tarantulas repaint. TM2 Blackarachnia is OK. Airazor only the Transmetal counts. G1 Minelba isn't Nightbeat mold repainted?

    The english dub gender-switch Nitro Convoy into Cybertron Override. It's an originally male mold. TFA have Blackarachnia and TFPrime have Airachnid.

    Movie Arcees didn't have one or two Human Alliance toys, too?

    For future reference, BW Sonar and Manta Ray don't count because they became female about a decade after they were released.

    Ye, Minelba may have been a Nightbeat repaint, or it was the other way around.

    Hehe... no, the idea isn't to list molds that looks female... but the ones designed to represent female characters.

    If we multiplied the number of female Transformers who have ever had toys by 100, it wouldn't come close to how many other Transformers there are.

    Noone knows which came first. I'm inclined to count Minerva, though, since she was a main character on an animated series.


    It might if you count all the characters who are repaints or share a mold with others, like Road Rage and Armada Ironhide.


    You could also add BW Manta Ray to your list, though her gender switches between Japan and the US as well.
