    Default Mr 33cm

    So, I discovered today that before his name was revealed, Snow was referred to as "Mr 33cm". Which is the size of his feet. Supposedly

    Is there anything else to say about this? Maybe not, but I couldn't know this fact and not post about it.

    Are there any "codenames" for video games characters - i.e what they called the character before the name was revealed - which stick out in your memory? And can you think of funny and/or suitable codenames they could have used for the characters of the XIII series?

    Mario appears in the original Donkey Kong game. He wasn't called Mario though, he was called, quite imaginatively... Jumpman.

    Clearly someone hasn't been watching Game Theory. That's his dad, not Mario himself.

    Nerd alert, nerd alert!

    On a similar (?) note, I remember hearing somewhere that Lara Croft, of Tomb Raider fame, was originally going to be called Laura Cruz.

    Fang's codename could have been "The Sass", because she IS the sass.

    Mario's Dad was called Antonio Piazza and disowned him from birth.

    Good idea. People seem to want to focus more on the general gaming angle rather than the XIII series angle.

    Done.

    Speaking of Donkey Kong, where the hell did that name come from?

    Maybe "Kong" from King Kong and Donkey from... something else? Maybe they saw a donkey go past the window or something, I don't know.

    Donkey was chosen because Miyamoto wanted a name that meant stubborn and looked it up in a dictionary.

    Pac-Man was originally called Puck Man but was changed to Pac-Man when it came to the U.S. due to Puck rhyming with a particular swear word.

    Mega Man is actually called Rockman and which is why all his companions have music reference names. Protoman's Japanese name for instance is Blues which if you know your music history, was the genre of music that inspired Rock n Roll.

    Seven is the fan-nickname for the seventh party member in Xenoblade that joins you who happens to be a surprise.

    Terra and Fang from the FF series both started out as males before getting a gender change.
