I've been wondering this personally, and I've come to the conclusion that he's at very least a contender for Sigma Awards. Do you think so?

This thread probably belongs in the theories section.

Obviously, Quote does technically talk, even though his lines aren't shown due to Cave Story utilizing the "Silent Protagonist" trope, but that doesn't mean he's a chatterbox. That partially depends on how you play the game, but consistent with the "Sigma Male" trope, Quote doesn't really say much of anything except when the player has him talk to someone. We have no reason to suspect that he says more than what's needed when talking to other characters to progress the story.

I think that Quote's demeanor in the credit art illustrations gives us the best glimpse at his personality:

Others may have a different interpretation, but I always felt as if these images portray Quote having a fairly reserved, quiet, and straightforward personality, consistent with the sigma male trope.

In no possible world can Kazuma be considered based.

kazuma is a sigma male
running away from your problem isn't what a sigma male should ever do, they'll catch up and then kick your ass no matter how strong you are
also i have played cave story like 6 times and as far as i know kazuma does not steal other people's work and struggles to do his own (or maybe my monkey brain can only understand what is directly told to me and cannot infer anything, which if i were to be entirely honest, i would think that just being dumb is more likely than you being entirely wrong with kazuma being a thief)


actually now that i think about it any character could be considered a sigma male if you stretch it far enough

Not true. Curly confirms that she and Quote were sent to destroy the demon crown. It's unreasonable to assume that they took part in killing Mimigas.

I just thought of something the other day. In the best ending, when Balrog asks Quote and Curly where they want to go, Curly jumps in and says where she wants to go. Quote probably has some level of attachment to the Sakamotos, but is too quiet to speak up, hence why he doesn't say anything when Curly inadvertently causes Quote to abandon the friends he's been fighting to help the entire game. If Quote weren't a sigma male, he would have said something.
