May is the female protagonist of Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. If she is not selected as the player, she is the player's rival.

The Generation III games deviated from the tradition of naming characters as their respective games, such as Red from Generation I and Generation II games. As such, May's counterparts include May from the anime and Sapphire from the Adventures manga.

Appearance

May is medium height and slim with long, thick, mouse brown hair, with a side fringe falling across her forehead. Her eyes are blue (Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald) or grey-blue (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). Her outfit varies with each game.

Ruby and Sapphire

She wears a red shirt with blue semi-circle, a white mini-skirt over black lycra shorts, black ankle socks, red and yellow sneakers, black and white gloves, a red bandanna with a white logo and a yellow fanny pack.

Emerald

She wears a sleeveless orange mini-tunic with a white stripe, two white pockets and a black collar over black lycra shorts, black ankle socks, white, black and orange slip on shoes, black and white gloves with green and black wristbands, a green bandanna with a white logo, and a green fanny pack.

Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

She wears a scarlet tank top with a black undershirt, white short shorts with black lycra mini-leggings underneath, yellow and black ankle boots with orange soles, a red and white bandanna/kerchief, a yellow-and-green fanny pack, and the Mega Bracelet on her left wrist.

In OR/AS, for the contests, she has a contest outfit, which consists of a white button up halter neck top with white elbow length sleeves with a frill on the ends and a pink bow on the front, a pink purple and white ballerina style tutu, pink and cream frilly shorts under the tutu, a yellow bracelet on her wrist with a heart shaped charm on it and a pink bow tied in her hair. On her feet she wears cerise pink kitten heel shoes with pink ribbons winding up her legs to her knees.

Personality

As a rival, May is a sweet, cheerful, kind-hearted, friendly, and humble person. She is kind and respectful to the player, and is more passive than most rivals. She is a good trainer to her Pokémon.
