These likeable Cyberpunk 2077 characters deserved better endings.
Not everyone in Night City gets what they deserve. Cyberpunk 2077 contains some very interesting retribution and justice themes that are passed down to its characters, sometimes through action and sometimes by “they had it coming.”
However, not all characters in this universe are treated equally by fate (or the game’s writers), and seeing them suffer throughout the game makes fans want to fall to their knees and yell “Why?” to the wind. Even when the characters are doomed, gamers can’t help but hope that at least some of them will have a happy ending.
She is tough, gorgeous, and dependable. And yet…Rogue Amendiares is one of the few characters in Cyberpunk 2077 who demonstrates how much she has matured since her days with Silverhand, but when the past knocks, she can’t help but answer.
Unfortunately, this will either result in her death or an unsatisfying conclusion to Silverhand and Rogue’s story. It all depends on what the player does, but even if they manage to keep Rogue alive, she will never fully be able to exact her revenge on Smasher.
Because AI and humans coexist in Cyberpunk 2077, gamers experience the same pain if an AI is injured as they would if a human were injured. Delamain steps forward. Despite the fact that Delaimain’s tasks are fairly unpleasant (who wants to run around Night City looking for rogue cabs who are insane?).
At the end of the task, the player must decide whether to destroy Delamain and his children or to merge them. All of those options lead to heartbreak in some way, with the greatest option being for Delamain to leave Night City more emotionally confused than ever (or is he?).
Judy’s life did not begin well, and it did not get much better from there. She portrays herself as tough, but she is a really sensitive creature who loves profoundly about those close to her, just as she would learn to care about V. Judy, especially if V is a woman, may or may not have an unrequited love as well.
Throughout the game, Judy and V will attempt to assist their mutual contact (and friend) Evelyn, but things will only become more complicated, and they will finally be unable to assist her. Even after that, no matter what the player decides in another assignment with V, Judy will be astonished, frustrated, or dissatisfied. And all of them to the extreme. The ending is also not joyful for her, no matter what the player chooses, or appears to be.
Evelyn Parker, a sad person in the game, suffered one of the worst tragedies possible, and many fans were shocked by what happened to her. When you first meet her, she appears to be a really cool person who has everything under control, yet this couldn’t be further from the truth.
In an attempt to calm her down, the Voodoo Boys infected her with a virus. She survived their attempt, but her cyberware was so damaged that she couldn’t do anything, remaining in a coma-like state while fully aware of what was going on around her. And then everything went horribly wrong, with Evelyn being abused and tossed from one person to the next, each of whom tried to exploit her in their own manner. When Judy and V found her, they tried and succeeded in resurrecting some of her, but she was so traumatised that she committed herself.
He might be considered V’s father figure as well as their best friend, as he is the one who brought them “back to life,” implying that V was under Jackie’s protection and worked with him on multiple missions. He was devoted to his family and loved to envision a better future for himself and his country.
When Dexter DeShawn recruited Jackie and V for the major robbery at the start of Funny Shooter 2 game, Jackie got overly eager, thinking that this was his big chance to get away from it all. Unfortunately for everyone concerned, Jackie was shot just as he and V were about to flee the theft, and he died soon after, leaving V and the fans to mourn and recuperate from the shock.
Kerry may live and act like your average rock star from the past, but V will quickly realise that the guy is as loyal and good-hearted as they come. He adored his bandmate, Johnny Silverhand, and never really recovered from his loss. There were even rumours that he attempted suicide since things had gotten so horrible.
If the player selects a manly body for V, Kerry may be a love choice, and after a few adventures the two of them would have together, Kerry will have made some considerable improvement in his own psychological problems. But if V rejects him, it’s all for naught. If V does not reject him, Kerry will most likely have another breakdown when he discovers what transpired, depending on the ending.
Cyberpunk 2077 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
