Maybe this will be a podcast someday.
I was playing Star Ocean 3 last night when I was confronted by the character Myuria. She was barely clothed and the jiggle was set to "Dead or Alive."
It reminded me of something Chibi had said in one of the podcasts referring to RPG character tropes, one of them being "breasts."
I thought it'd be interesting to outline the standard tropes, identify their key characteristics, and list which characters from which series fit the tropes.
Here are a few to start off with (I'll get back to this as work allows)
The Amnesiac - Cloud
The Boobs - She may have a story. She may kick ass. But don't kid yourself. She's eye candy. Tifa, Myuria,
The Ace - What they lack in emotion, they make up in skill - Lightning,
The Smartass - Comic relief - Sazh
The Muscle - Hulk smash - Barret, Snow, Bacchus
The Kid - Battling the forces of darkness with uber-cuteness. Vanille, Lymle
