As {{Word Of God}} has shown, the catgirls are all-female. [[YouFailBiologyForever Any biologist will tell you that this is absurd]]; all but the simplest of lifeforms reproduce sexually (hermaphrodites capable of [[ScrewYourself literally screwing themselves]] notwithstanding). This leaves two options; 1. They are immortal and committed {{Gendercide}} in the past; and 2. They reproduce asexually and only ''look'' female. [[TakeAThirdOption Of course]], there may be a catgirl generator out there that [[{{ItRunsOnNonsensoleum}} Runs On Nonsenseoleum]] and the {{Rule Of Sexy}}....

** Its quite possible something like this was going to happen to the planned Darkstalkers 4 with a new generation of characters replacing most of the old ones. However Capcom probably planned to kill that idea off quietly out of fear that it would get a rather [[BrokenBase divisive]] backlash like what StreetFighterIII got.

[[WMG: The rather [[BrokenBase divisive]] reception that StreetFighterIII had may've been a potential reason why Capcom never got around to fully making and releasing the 4th Darkstalkers game on the CPS 3 Arcade Hardware.]]
During the late 90's both StreetFighter and VideoGame/FatalFury had new Fighting games where they did a almost completely new roster of characters and only one or few recurring characters are still around. For all we know Capcom may have planned to do a almost new set of characters for Darkstalkers 4 like what they did with StreetFighterIII. Unfortunately due to how a lot of people were bothered by the idea of a mostly new cast for StreetFighterIII at the time (and some people still are) this scared Capcom off for trying that idea again with Darkstalkers. (And significantly changing the game to make it more familiar would take a lot more time to do so.) So Capcom quite possibly quietly shelved the idea of a Darkstalkers 4 with new characters out of fear it would have the same reaction as StreetFighterIII did.

Most of the time, her face looks completely normal and she probably was intended to be an attractive female villain. The instances where she looks ugly and old are actually a result of the OffModel animation and the unappealing art style. There is also the fact that other characters that are supposed to be attractive (Like Felicia or Rikuo) look weird in a couple of scenes of the cartoon.

They've not only license-rescued the ''Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge'' OVA, but also the american ''Mega Man'' and ''Street Fighter'' cartoons as well. The ''Darkstalkers'' cartoon at least sounds like a likely candidate the next time they decide to rescue another american cartoon.

* Ok, considering the Darkstalkers series is basically a FantasyKitchenSink, I think it's best to just say "AWizardDidIt" for the existence of the catgirl species - as in, [[LiteralMetaphor literally a wizard or other magical being created the catgirl race, and all the wacky biological traits they have]]. Perhaps a revelation in a future game will reveal something to this effect, like, for example, it may have something to do with [[EgyptianMythology Bast, the Cat Goddess...]].

That´s why in most of the episodes of that series many characters (Sometimes [[EvenTheGuysWantHim male characters]]) keep mentioning how [[MemeticMutation "curiously attractive"]] Rikuo was.

Hsien-ko may end up a [[TheWoobie bigger woobie]] considering she had to become a Jiangshi in DS 3 despite being reincarnated. Alternatevly, she may end up a Jiangshi again by destiny or a different girl sharing her fate or any other event.
