Final Fantasy XI

Quite a few instances of Charm for this game. Not so many that are female/female, but I'll find what I can.
First off, Charm does not have gender preference. You can't choose a character of one gender and not get Charmed by something of the same gender. Most of the enemies that can do this are just monsters of no discernible gender anyways.
And as your character can be male or female, go ahead and just assume what I'm talking about is female enemies toward female player characters.

Lamiae-

These alchemically-created hybrids of women and serpent have one particular charm move- Belly Dance. A full-perimeter AOE. Thankfully, it appears only Notorious Monsters of the Lamia type can use this move. Not to be confused with Merrows, who are also considered Lamiae. I want to say Merrows are more combat-oriented, but that's probably just talking out my ass.
And of course, the leader of these serpent ladies- Medusa.

Siren-
http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/ffxi/images/b/b0/SirenNPC.png/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/800?cb=20150516182338
One of the "Lost Avatars," Siren takes a Garuda-like appearance, like FFXIV (yes, she actually appeared in XIV before XI). One of her abilities is Entice, which appears to be a conal-shaped charm attack. As she came when most of the population had left the game, which brought in the need for the Trust system to summon friendly NPCs, this attack could be quite bothersome. If the player was hit with Entice, all of that player's Trust Alter Egos would be de-summoned instantly. However, if an Alter Ego were to receive the attack, it would have no effect. An Alter Ego that can reasonably tank is a must for her fight if you're going against her solo.

Now then, here's a major plot point for Wings of the Goddess, one that isn't actually reflected in gameplay-
Lady Lilith
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120813021024/finalfantasy/images/7/71/Ladylilith_artwork.jpg
Lady Lilith's Spitewardens:
Lady Lilith is such a charmer. Her seductive nature puts pretty much anyone at unease. Through a pact made with Odin, the Dark Divinity, she has pretty much become a demigod herself. And she is more than willing to share that sort of power with those that would follow her. She manages to convince her father and mother (in the past) to forge the same pact with Odin, and they join the ranks of her Spitewardens. Before this came about, the player was mostly aware of three of these foes, and during said moment of pact forging, the player and Lilisette (the heroine) defeat two of them. After the battle though, they become distraught at the decision of the couple (as they are the parents of BOTH Lilisette and Lilith, in two separate futures). Lilith then decides to reveal her final Spitewarden...

The final Spitewarden:
YOU

Apparently, in her future, Lilith became so enamored with YOU, she had to have you in her possession. What it took for her to achieve that, I don't know, but go ahead and imagine how she was able to seduce an alternate you from a bleak, hopeless future to become a dark warrior burning with the fury of Odin.

Now, her interaction with Lilisette isn't nearly so nice. Lilith considers her a worthless fake from a time period that shouldn't even have existed in the first place-
Spoiler:
Cait Sith, whom has allied with you, reveals that your own timeline actually came about AFTER Lilith's, due to Altana not wanting the world to exist with such despair, but with happiness.
I kinda spoiled myself as to the final battle, and am actually going through the rest of the story right now, but after you defeat Lilith once in the final battle, she actually absorbs Lilisette into herself to ascend into "The Goddess of Dusk."

Very nice dood, this is a wonderful sighting! Great stuff, and I do so love that twist at the end. Both Lamiae & Siren sound quite enticing to fall to, a being that can sway you with her dance, and another that can make you recall all your defenders, just for some alone time in her presence.

Yeah, I figured it was about time once I saw Siren. She wasn't put into the game until after I had left. They really took some cues from the Garuda and Siren designs of XIV in making her, with her stiletto feet (XI Garuda has bird talons for feet).

Oh yeah, and one other thing of note regarding Siren-
Spoiler:
She fights against you, having been charmed by the dark powers wielded by the antagonists of this story. Her own power, turned against her. The particular character who did it is male, so I won't go any deeper into that. But after you beat her, she is pretty much discarded from her charm bindings, and grants favor to you.

Huh, that's a rather interesting concept.

I could prove to be a very effective stand alone concept:
Characters who use charm attacks being enslaved by their own charms~

HOLY SHIT.

During another free campaign, I've continued on with some more epilogue quests. One of them, "Forbidden Reunion," where you fight two "Shadow Kindred."

Spoiler:
Teaming up with Lilisette, actually, which shouldn't happen because of the end of Wings of the Goddess, but it's happening. And... at some point in the fight-
Lilisette: "Lilith, we are as one!"

... And she takes on Lady Lilith's dark form and high-level magic moveset, instantly healing herself as well (maybe it was a health-based reaction, as you are supposed to protect her during the fight as well), and dropping her Dancer moveset.

Strangely enough, this isn't even acknowledged after the fight, she's instantly back to being Lilisette, and says goodbye once more, leaving behind a Trust Cipher, which you can use to produce an NPC clone of her. I already have her Rhapsodies cipher, but suddenly I gotta wonder if there's any other way I can see her turn herself into Lilith.

I just found out a few days ago that Square-Enix has plans in motion to wrap up FFXI relatively soon so you may want to start searching it heavily.

They've still been introducing new content, and they've announced a partnership with Nexon to bring the game to mobile platforms. They're not shutting the game down any time soon.
