Behold, the ugliest party member design in any jrpg.
TF is that?
>>1536558>RHPCRed Hot Peppers Chili?
>>1536558oh god, he looked way better in the old artstyle
>>1536572Rosch from Radiant Historia. Good game, but his design is ugly as fuck.
>>1536578imo this dwarf has the worst design of the two
>>1536558The design would be fine with better proportions
>>1536558>in any jrpg.lol, no.
>>1536759I want to find one singular piece of this that is good, someone help me.
>>1536558>twink>skinny jeans>glowing tribal tattoosI'll take belt-dress and giant pizza cutter over this fag any day.
>>1536840The pants and shoes aren't great, but I like the tattoos
>>1536840It's a clean design, I dig it.Now, pic related...I love Satoshi Urushihara, but the Langrisser III Hero never clicked with me.
>>1536893How does that hair even work
>>1536840Fuck you. Glowing tatoos are cool
>>1536819I can't. The longer I look at it, the worse it gets.
>>1536893>>1536906His hair looks like regular hair if you focus on the outline immediately touching his head. And all the extra hair just looks like highlights. I wonder if the game being a prequel has anything to do with his ridiculous hairstyle. I think his hair is supposed to be a visual representation of the weird details that heroes have in ancient stories. "Eyebrows like a phoenix, a magnificent beard," that sort of thing but with his hair instead.
>>1536759>>1537110the beret, maybe
>>1536759The green torn sash would look good standalone on any other character
>>1537445I'd say the face in general looks fine, not anyhing special, but it's inoffensive. I haven't played the game, but as far as I know the portraits in the game only show the face and neck, so I don't think you even see all that other shit in the game. Maybe his designer knew that would be the case and just decided to go wild seeing as nobody would even see it.
>>1536577Everyone did. The only character that arguably looks better in the remake is Eruca since they gave her less awful hair.
>>1537456The pizza cutter itself is just a meme that isn't even in his game. It was part of the animation for 1 ability used by a secret character in the previous game you unlock by 100%ing it. It isn't even equipment but shows up in Tactics art all the time.
>>1536558I hate using him because he looks so goofy
>>1537496I hate using him because he's always like 10+ levels behind the rest of the group because his availability is shit.
>>1537484I hate when chef Ramsey goes to normal American zah places and then calls them bad. Like ok it's not some fancy stupid French pizza with thin crusts and leaves on top, but a good zah is supposed to be doughy with lots of oil and grease and meat. When I see him order big greasy zah and it falls apart when he tries to eat it, I think "damn, that looks like some good zah"
>>1537615It shouldn't be THAT doughy or greasy. Doughy can just mean undercooked. I like me a thick crust pizza much more than a thin crust, but I want it to be fully cooked through. And if it's so greasy the cheese doesn't even adhere to the pizza, then that's just overboard.
>>1537110i was just about to write a post pointing out other stuff those tags miss but i realised holy shit, his clothes are also a metaphor for the pizza>red (sauce) underclothes beneath holey yellow (cheese) overalls, big ragged green herb garnish, pepperoni coins everywhere, upper half exposed (crust)ARTIST SECRETLY MADMAN GENIUS
>>1536558Fuck you Rosch is based, besides any Final Fantasy character already has that spot, they started the whole belts and zippers meme.
>>1536819The baggy overalls are actually pretty nice (sans knee-nickles and holes everywhere) because at least they contribute to the silhouette.The bottom-heavy look honestly works fine.>>1537445I disagree because the white backwards bill looks goofy as hell (once you notice it) and the emblem is ridiculously over-detailed.BTW, Akihiko Yoshida did a redesign of this dude for WotL. It's hilarious just how much bullshit had to be toned down.
>>1536759>>1537110i almost wish an even more ridiculous version existed in which Luso was barely visible at all under his bling. but this is already more ridiculous than anything else
>>1536558Why the hell are there seashells/donuts glued to her face? Why is she veiny? Why are the horns on only one side? The crap is removable too, because we see her without the face donuts later in the game.she’s a temporary party member so it counts
>>1536893>>1536906It looks better from the front, though still anime as fuck.
>>1537110The really insane part about this was that it was for a DS game. The guy KNEW he was making a DS game. So all that shit? All that over the top bling and nonsense? None of it will show up in the game. So it's all for nothing.
>>1538091Eh, it's concept art.Sorta like how Amano always does super intricately fancy concept art for all those mainline FFs and like none of that makes it to the final game.Compare this to her ingame sprite. They look nothing alike.
>>1537811I mean we (rightfully) shit on Nomura but Amano was pretty out there too a lot of the time. He just has the advantage of looking like a far off dreamy fantasy and not like a Hot Topic exploded. I'm still pretty sure Maria's boob plate would get her kicked out of most places.
>>1536840Bruh this is great.Fucks wrong with you?
>>1536558my only real issue is his big stupid arms. the actual design is baller as fuck and i'm tempted to tell you you have shit taste.
>>1538143The big stupid arm is a prosthetic.
>>1537811The whole game is basically encouraging you to hold Rosch in contempt. He spends literally the whole time underlevelled and most of his plot involvement involves triggering the apocalypse with shit decisions or muh depression
>>1536558Are you seriousHe looks like an absolute GODTIER CHADstay fucking mad and jelly
>>1536893Is that darth vader and kira yoshikage?
>>1536893Eh it's still better than the absolute faggotry in some of the growlanser heroes.
>>1536558Do I miss out on a lot by playing the DS Version over the 3DS?
>>1538453Just best girlWHY doesn't she join your party, I would kill anyone else to let her in
at least he's not another generic manlet carrying a big metal sticv
>>1538453Forced happy ending.
>>1538453you miss out on a garbage art style
>>1537110The fucking pizzas in the bag always kill me
>>1538457>>1538553>>1538581So pretty much nothing. Nice.
>>1538101The only time you should use "Eh" is if you're Canadian. Otherwise you're a larping weeb. At least type it in Japanese. Even Japanese know to cut that shit when they're in full English mode.
>>1538766You people always post the worst possible examples in threads like these
>>1538111are you a zoomer? because twinks in skinny jeans is top-tier fag mode to everyone else.
>>1538778Do you speak Beaver as well?
>>1537110Ah, the classic.
>>1536558You mean this abomination
>>1536840shirtless twinks look the worst
Why are you dumbfucks pretending it's not Cat Shit?
>>1538457Atlus needs to fuck off with adding new forced girl characters in remakes, no one liked it with Marie in P4G and no one liked it either with Alex in Strange Journey Redux.
>>1540753Because we don't have shit taste.
>>1537466You don't like short hair Eruca?
>>1541097i forget her name but the girl in royal was handled pretty decently.
I love character design threads.
>>1538925Just to your mom
>>1539474I would kill for them to replace this shit with clearly superior costume, even if it's from gacha.
>>1537615French here, there's no french pizza here, just italian ones.
>>1538765Maybe he's french.
>>1537615this but unironically. Sorry, I just can't get into your glorified pita bread with two drops of tomato sauce and a piece of paper that says "cheese".
>>1536759So bad it's good, and then it's bad again
