    Relm The Nicest Children in Games

    who are the most delightful and cute?

    Here are mine

    Nanako Dojima (Persona 4) "I lovvve Junes" :-D
    Eiko (Final Fantasy 9)
    Vivi (Final Fantasy 9)
    Krile (Final Fantasy 5)
    Marlene (Final Fantasy 7)

    I know I often use Relm as part of my header but that's only because EoFF is somewhat limited in who you can use. I don't really know her. She is a child isn't she? From FF6?

    Clementine from The Walking Dead Season One. She's just the most precious thing ever.

    Yes. By Telltale. An episodic adventure game. There are two of them actually.

    I find this hard because I often feel like children are super idealized in media and it looks like the people who write them have never really interacted with children and seen how rude, weird, and random they all actually are, not to mention emotionally unstable and trigger-happy.

    I mean, I liked Nanako fine, but she was still kind of too perfect, being nice to everyone, and doing the frickin' laundry at age six. She's still probably one of the best portrayals of a kid in Japanese popular media.

    The kid from Undertale is the only child character I can think of as actually being anything resembling a good character but the whole silent protagonist thing and the personality I project onto him/her probably helps.

    Of the ones that don't annoy me there's Gau and Vivi

    This.

    I mean I loved Nanako, but one of the main reasons for that was "holy cow, she is the sweetest most well-behaved kid ever. I wish my future kid would be as well mannered as her". She just seemed way too mature for her age. She is 6 - 7 years old. I have never seen a 7yo cook, clean, garden and be happily contented with a trip to the local mall on rare occasions and a T-shirt gift on even rarer occasions, especially considering she has no mum and her father isn't around much. The most bratty thing she's ever done was give her dad a lil smack on the backside, and that wasn't even bratty.

    I have a feeling she's learned to be independent. Nanako's over-maturity simply highlights the ineptitude of Dojima's parenting. He can't hardly do any domestic tasks, which is probably a portrayal of Japan's more traditional gender roles. I doubt he had the need to do any serious housework. The death of his wife probably took the family into a tailspin. Not to mention the social pressure of a lone dad raising a child. Single-mother households are a rarity (though increasing, slowly), so single-father households are even more so. That and he has a hard job; I'm surprised he manages.

    Really though, Nanako only becomes sweet after a month of getting to know you. She was always polite, but she was fairly shy around you until about Golden Week. Her exuberance towards Yu and his friends is probably a reaction to the lack interaction she had before he turned up. It sounds almost tragic, but her life was basically school -> housework -> T.V -> repeat. Someone wants to spend time with me?! If you were seven and had stunted social interaction, you'd be more than little 'eager'. Her contentment with otherwise small occasional trip is probably again an over-reaction; of getting as much joy as you can from it because you don't know when the next will turn up.
