Pitou is a fascinating enigma. However, there is evidence in the manga that they are male. Their pronouns are one of the most compelling pieces of evidence for this claim. When other characters in the series address and refer to Pitou, they use masculine pronouns. Some also point to their “manly” voice and behavior in the anime and how the other characters interact with them.

On the other end, some fans speculate that Pitou is female due to their delicate and effeminate appearance. For example, Pitou’s chest is usually but only sometimes flat in the manga. In contrast, the 2011 anime portrays Neferpitou with an enlarged bust. Pitou also has wide shoulder-width hips with a slim waist and a low waist-hip ratio, commonly seen in post-pubescent human females. Also, the claim that Pitou is female is strengthened in the game Hunter Hunter Battle Collection, an RPG game, where it is stated that Pitou is indeed female.

Ultimately, the true answer to this question remains shrouded in mystery. It is up to each person to interpret, and which media they consider canon (game, anime, or manga). However, whatever gender identity one chooses to assign Pitou, it is clear that they are fascinating and enigmatic characters who continue to captivate viewers to this day.
