The voice of the Puppet Master was changed in the remake from male to female, making it a female character - in as far as one can state that for a cyborg in this context.

Mark disagreed with the rating and said:
The puppet master is not actually human and so can't really be classed as a female.

"[the puppet master] is actually an advanced artificial intelligence program, known as Project 2501"

During the course of the movie it takes over a cyborg body that is female. In the English version the puppet master also has a male voice.

The main character, Motoko Kusanagi, starts off as a female human who eventually becomes cyberized whilst the puppet master was an A.I. who takes on an artificial body.

Also this version is mostly the same as the 1995 version of the film.
