@mgalchemist: I think they were thinking "this will really do well in the market that are fascinated with sexualized female children."

Nice Peridot avatar by the way.

@afabs515: I only left out VLR Clover because when you put her beside the other 3, her outfit just starts to look reasonable.

Was browsing through my favourite game lists and I was trying to think of any bad character designs in them. Here's what I came up with:

How have we gone this long without talking about Jynx, a disgusting pokemon design that was literally just

Then there's this pervert.

Tubular.

I actually really like Etna's character design (like the hair, earrings, collar, wings, and tail), but it's been a decade and NIS still hasn't given her a costume that doesn't look like it was designed by a pedophile.

And Japan strikes again with fetishizing little girls. But it's okay! Nowi is over 1000 years old! *eyeroll*

Then there is Zero Escape. I love the series, but they can't seem to go a game without having a strong female character setup in one of the worst costumes in games.

Like, good on Lotus for being a 40 year old woman rocking a look like that. You go girl. But I still don't buy it as empowerment as much as the developers thinking

Alice's top is literally jsut sleeves and a necklace. THAT'S IT.

Designer: So here's our character, she's sexy with long legs and very short shorts, and a top that you can see her bra a little bi- Boss: But what if you unzipped her top more... Designer: Wha- what? Boss: Yeah, just unzip her top all the way so her ENTIRE bra is showing? Designer: But that would be ridi- Boss: Listen, we had a character last game with just a necklace for a top, surely you can just unzip her top 80% of the way. Designer: *sighs and goes to work*

And last but not least, just because there are so many bad ones that it'd be a hassle to post individually, I present to you all the character portraits in Heroes of Might & Magic 2.

It's not that Quiet's design is "bad" or "the worst"

No, I think that's pretty much the case.

I'm actually shocked that Lucio is in the top 3. Played a ton of him in the betas, but didn't see an awful lot of him. But I finally got to play the live version and he's still so much fun. Also, I only opened one skin from boxes, but it was the best skin in the game:

Love this character.

@blackichigo:FUCKING CHRIST. YEAH. STAR OCEAN 4.

CHRIST.

I blocked that game from my memory. I KNEW there was a reason I didn't care about that series. And SO4 is it.

And still images of that game do NOT do it justice. The way everything in that game animates is NIGHTMARISH.

The worst thing is that I see 90% of the things in this thread and just think "Eh whatever it's fine".

There's two ways you can go being a fan of video games: constantly demand more from video games and be disappointed 99% of the time or to just let it all wash over you.

@choi: Oh jeez. Oh wow. Oh god.

I forgot how bad the character designs in Lost Odyssey were. I actually don't mind Kaim and Seth designs, but then Ming enter the story and ??

Also doesn't help that the graphics in the game has aged super poorly so everyone looks like nightmare uncanny valley people in motion.

You know what's a bad idea? Making a female child character on a low-resolution game like a PS1 game with part of her costume being the same as her skin colour. You know what's worse? When that section is her crotch.

Someone needed to pull the trigger.

It probably speaks to the sheer blandness of it all that I'll take any design from Nomura no matter how absurd and horrid over nearly every shooter with a generic military man in a uniform.

Yeah, I'm with you. I'll take the good and the bad over the entirely bland any day, but like, where something like Aidan Pierce is inoffensively and boringly bad, there are just some absolutely horrendous character designs in this thread that take the cake.
