    Shouldn't it be Diabla not Diablo now?

    Since Diablo is based on the greek Diabolos (male devil) the female version would be Diabolas (female devil). So Diabla instead of Diablo...

    It would be too weird to change the title of the game, maybe they could have changed the wording in the actually game but for most I assume this really isn't an issue.

    ....This has nothing to do with anything and is a completely unnecessary comment.

    To answer your question, OP, Diablo is technically still male (or possibly genderless), but the more feminine appearance is simply because of how he regained a physical form.

    So his "evil spirit" is always male no matter the vessel he is using for physical form? Ok, makes sense.

    I dont play diablo or know anything about it so pardon my ignorance, but how do you know its Greek and not spanish for El Diablo (The Devil)

    Isn't Diablo the spanish word for "Devil"?

    I can guesstimate that it's based on that for just being a 'cool' name for it.

    I was thinking Diablette.

    Maybe Diabletta?

    Just another pour demon lost forever to the evils of... cross-dressing.

    Or is it another one of those, "its still masculine if she wants me to wear her underwear" sort of things?

    He is not Leah, he is only using her body as a vessel to be reborn... someone did not pay attention to the end of act 3 and beginning of act 4.

    Hmm, spoiler warning - maybe rename this thread - would be nice for people who don't know what you are eluding to here.

    P.S. Diablo has to check his blood sugar, he has Diabletes.

    I personally think that the new Diablo was meant to be androgynous as a reference to having both female and male parts in there, Leah aside. Not all of the Evils are male, after all.

    It looked more feminine overall than the previous Diablo, but it certainly wasn't distinctly feminine on its own. Some feminine features were present, but so were some masculine ones, not the least of which was the voice.

    Also a pretty good point, since Andariel is one of them.

    Diablo himself is male, he just took over the SPIRIT of Lea, therefore he is still a male who used a female to gain power.
    Just listen to his voice dammit.

    What if Leah just popped a lot of 'roids so she has a "husky" voice now?

    I'm afraid of the inevitable "fanart" that will be showing up soon because of diablo's transformation.

    Well at least most of it will probably be showing up in the "adult" section so the kiddies, as in the ones who can't find the "Sure I'm 18" button, will be safe from it.

    Though I must admit to pondering how Diablette would look in a muumuu. You know, come to think of it, I thought he-she looked sort of like my mother-in-law.

    It has everything to do with it! if something changes in the game it means the name of the game would also change. Nah.

    Well not now. I had no clue as my AAD has 3 toons in act III, but none past the first quest or two.

    But I space bar through the story, so I don't care
