Since we've had a daily topic about what we think of characters, and one about the music of Fates, I decided to make one where we give our opinions on the character's aesthetics. Which might have been discussed a bit in the character discussion thread but for this thread It shall be the main focus. Does the clothing appeal to you? any facial features that really makes the character pop? anything that just looks odd to you? post em here. I'll stick with a 2 characters per day formula. List so far: To start us off I figured we'd start with: #1 - Corrin (M/F) I'm rather mixed about Corrin's design. It's not dull by any means and the black and white on the armour looks nice, It just looks a tad bit over designed in comparison to previous lord designs, particularly In comparison to our last avatar character Robin. Also the male version's hair is a tad silly, although the female's hair is actually quite nice. The headpiece is a nice touch to her design. With that said however her design suffers from unnecessary sexualisation in the form of those patch of exposed skin around the thighs. While not the biggest deal since Camilla and Charlotte exist it does feels forced onto her design as her male counterpart doesn't have anything like that (Similar for Effie when compared to Benny but I'll get to that later). It reminds me of Cherche's design in how inconsistent it was with that design choice. Also why do neither of them wear shoes? Since they were first revealed It's stuck out to me like a sore thumb (or in this case, a toe hehe). I'm guessing that it's because when they transform into a dragon they need space for their feet/hands? which is still odd since their armour seems to blend into their body upon transforming, at least that what it looks like. Edit: Also when it came to custom avatar designs for the male I preferred the long hair one as it gave him an elfish look. Haven't used F!Corrin yet so not sure what I'd prefer for her. I suppose we can also discuss Corrin's dragon design while we're at it. If there's one thing I noticed about this game and dragon's is that they seem to be really stretching what can be considered a dragon. Along with Lilith I just don't see them as a dragon, if anything the first thing I thought of upon seeing Corrin's dragon form was Xerneas from Pokemon X...while Lilith is just a bloody koi fish squirrel. #2 - Azura Azura certainly has an interesting design for a dancer. It's exotic, yet mysterious, which suits her character. The one leg stocking thing sticks out though since that's connected to her undergarment, so would that be considered a fan servicy design choice? or is it some kind of pants that just has one leg exposed? It reminds me of Palutena as she had one leg stocking as well. I like her long, flowing blue hair, which also looks hilarious ingame since some classes clothing clips through it or the gear from cloths shops, had her as a berserker recently and the combination of her hair with the barbarian look made me giggle.
The designs of all the random generic trainers have changed quite a bit throughout the series, and I'm kind of curious what are some of your favorite designs in the series. Some of my favorite designs include the BW/BW2 Ace Trainers, XY Female Swimmers, ORAS Male Breeders, and the Rangers from XY are pretty cool, and I think the ORAS Lass is designed pretty well. What about you guys?
Taking gameplay out of your reasoning, who do you think is the best designed character in the game? You know, in terms of outfit, colors, hairstyle, overall look, etc. Best means what you look for in a good character design. Personality can influence your reasoning, as I believe a good design should reflect the character's personality. Yusuke Kozaki deigned all the characters for Awakening, by the way. Lon'qu, Lucina, and Gerome can't seem to stop tying! So, to truly settle the score, all will advance to ultra finale championship. Lon'qu, the gynophobic heart taker, vs Lucina, the foreseeing time-breaker, vs Gerome, the not so happy masked maker! Explain your reasoning in your post for each character you vote for in your post, if you can. Let's see which design is best in all of Awakening! polls close at 12 pm EST. And the results are in! By a margin of one vote, Lucina defeats Lon'qu. Lucina has the best design in Awakening! Feel free to discuss the results! Final Tally: Lucina: 22 Lon'qu: 21 Gerome: 16 Results: Round 1: Results: Final Round 2 super, ultra finale championship
