Hello! I'm Evelyn.

When you are developing a game, there are times when you wish you had 3D characters that you could use for free.

For those of you who are interested, we have compiled a list of 3D character models that are available for free.

I hope I can be of some help to you.

Table of Contents

Unity Asset Store

The Unity Asset Store has a ton of assets that are free!

Unity-Chan! Model

Unity-Chan! is easy to use, so I'll try to make it better.

Unity-Chan! is a 3D character officially distributed by Unity.

The asset includes animation data, so it's a very useful asset.

"Query-Chan" model

Query-Chan (Query Lovecraft) is an Android girl made by the Japanese game company Pocket Queries!

I'm so jealous of Query-Chan's cuteness!

Character Model Jelly Fish GIrl

If you want to make a shooting game like Splatoon, this asset is a good choice.

The inclusion of animation data for Attack, Damage, Walk, Run, etc. is also very nice.

Latifa V2 3D: Free Anime Style Character (Game-Ready/VRChat)

This is a 3D model of Anime Style that can be used in VRChat and other applications!

Free Mummy Monster

It's a very cute character.

I think it will match with low-poly games.


This is a mini character that contains animation data.

I'm impressed with the red hair on this asset!


Mixamo, a service run by Adobe, allows you to use not only animation data but also character data in your games.

There are many characters to choose from.

Vroid Studio

A service called Vroid, run by a Japanese company called Pixiv, is also very effective.

By using the software Vroid Studio, anyone can easily create 3d characters.
