Thread: Why does Tidus look like a woman?

  1. #1

    Default Why does Tidus look like a woman?

    Why did the devs make Tidus look like a woman? I mean, hell. They made him really scrawny and gave him Meg Ryans hair style. They even put him in overalls. Anyone know why they made him look like a girly 17 year old guy?

    It almost make him and Yuna look like a same sex couple on the cover of the game.

    Looks like a pretty 17 year old boy to me. Or was it 18.

    He looks like a man. Not a big, burly "macho" man, maybe, but a man. Why they chose to give him such a hideous outfit, however, is anyone's guess.

    His outfit was cool to me when I was 10. I still hold some nostalgia towards it despite knowing it is logically awful. I don't think he looks anything like a woman though.

    I think he's got the standard androgynous look that many characters, both male and female, have in the Final Fantasy series. This is pretty common in Japanese pop culture.

    Why ? Would you prefer Tidus to have tight muscles, bald hair, roughly shaven face, large heavy machine gun and ciggy in his mouth ???

    Apparently, we need more of this



    Gotta hand it to the Japanese - at least they're trying

    (also, do you guys think we should tell him about Vaan?)

    Yup ! That's what I was thinking of- the other 99 per cent of male western protags out there.
