Post the worst of the worst character designs you can find. From the uncannily realistic to terrible reboots to oversexualized. It doesn't matter if it's from movies, TV, video games, comics, just has to be awful.

Every Pokemon Generation past 4
File: 1687204055975.png (70.72 KB, 950x475, FKV2uE6aV_A31b.png)
I dare you to defend this.
There are some good designs up to gen 7 or even 8. However the amount of bad designs increases with the gen number.
Gen 5 had a bunch of good ones. Gen 6 had too few new Pokemon to leave an impression but it had a mix of good and bad. Gen 7 is where it truly went to shit even though a few designs were still good. One of the few designs I liked from gen 8 was Corviknight.
The problem, I think, is that more and more people started to design pokemon, same with the human characters, so the franchise started to stray from the characteristic style it had for the first few generations.
Also, it's not like all of the pokemon starting from gen 5 are automatically bad and all of the designs before that were perfect, that's such a genwunner take. A lot of Gen 1 pokemon in particular are so fucking boring to me and don't seem to make sense, like they were designed in a hurry. But generally, yeah, the first 4 generations had better pokemon that actually looked like pokemon and quality started to decline after that.

These two are white blood cells. Why does the female one have huge knockers out even though the male one is normally dressed? It doesn't make sense since this version of Cells at Work! she's in takes place in a much darker and edgier theme where hell breaks lose. How am I suppose to take this seriously when her tits are out making herself more vulnerable to enemies and foes? Are the audience supposed to feel worried and aroused at the same time? It's unnecessary, retarded and cringe just like Highschool of the Dead. I like the idea of surviving in an apocalypse or in a world being swallowed by danger and disaster but designing the girls to look sexy with skin out and to appeal horny moids just ruins it and breaks the seriousness and immersion of the theme.

Anyone else bothered by the women in the new Final Fantasy? The concept art looks good but somehow gets lost in translation to 3D because of weird-looking proportions (I think tiny heads/necks too long?) and extremely mousey faces. Meanwhile the men all look great. Jill’s unnecessarily low ponytail behind her ears and gray hair make her look extra mouse-like.

I like Jill, but I agree there's something a bit weird about her and Benedikta's faces. It might be the long, thin noses and pointy chins? Benedikta particularly looks like a yassified Dissidia Zidane to me.
I think both of their eyes are too small and squinty?
I find the super low ponytail cute tho, makes me think of Applejack and Tifa

Their mouths are so weird
I hate the modern FF 3D style so much. All the girls' faces look very similar (seriously, if you swap the hair they'd some of then look identical to each other) and they're uncanny when they move. Everything is so smooth and you can tell they refuse to give them proper expressions because they fear their usual japanese-looking pretty girl face will appear ugly. Look at these >>305088>>305086
their faces don't move beside the tiny mouths. The men are slightly better but they often look uncanny too with the expressions and realistic face + anime eyes combo.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is excellent, I’m enjoying the fuck out of it, but MC’s design is so ugly. He’s very green in comparison to all the other characters, his one lens glasses look stupid af, his hair style is ugly, his clothes are ugly, and why does he have all those marks on his body that the other MC (also a kabaneri) doesn’t have? Can’t wait for this dude to get a hair cut or different fit or something. The purple pants ain’t it.

i agree it looks fine except for the legs. it's especially awkward comparing her to 92 who is completely chaste in comparison. i've seen people say the boy "appeals to female fantasy just as much". fucking how? he looks like a 10 year old in his school uniform
>>305403>where they want to appeal to men while also trying to get a female audience without threatening the male fantasy.
Exactly what I was going to say kek. If they had made the male android appear the same age as 2B and a bishonen/biseinen, male players would've felt threatened and cucked by him. Making him a shota also helps attract pornsick moids who are into straight shota (usually for self-insert purposes) or "femboys".
It's kinda fucked up that their way to attract female players is making the male character look like an underage teenager instead of a young adult man, just because they don't want to make moids uncomfortable.

You know your characters designs have gotten "better" over the years when important features like eyes and arms blend into other bodyparts
>>305460>>305477>please leave tinkaton out of this
I second this, tinkaton is cute and fun!
While I find the other 2 quite ugly I don't think the things anon complained about are right in this case. Gholdengo is made of solid gold, the eyes are just rings etched into the gold. And Palafin is a superhero wearing a mask/swimming goggles, they both make thematic sense to me. As for arms blending in with body parts… that's been a pokemon thing since gen 1, just look at like mankey or poliwrath so I don't see what the issue is there? But I can't stress enough that gen 9 designs are not at all my taste and is possibly the ugliest region we've ever had overall. But that's just because they deliberately give each region its own "style", I for one adore pretty much every gen 7 pokemon but I've heard others say it's the worst region and them loving these new gen 9 pokemon.
Idk guys I find Tinkaton stupid too. I mean, it's cute, but it just doesn't look like a Pokemon. The huge-ass hammer makes it look more like a character from some anime rather than a species of cute critters, if that makes sense.
Same with the stupid superhero fish. You would never imagine those in the wild.
I feel the same way as >>305331
I actually like her design as well but I also acknowledge that it is total coombait material and I cringe when I see moids make fanart of her and go to town coomifying even more.
I do agree that it would look miles better if the skirt was a full skirt.

Literally leftover shit from the beta that no one could be bothered to put any effort into writing back in.
Originally she was going to be a more active despair character meant to contrast with Komaeda (encouraging people to not do anything aside from lay around in despair, while Komaeda encouraged people to kill for hope), but that got scrapped so she was just left with literally no personality aside from 'lol meat'.
Sucks because her original design and concept were really cool and I would have wanted to see the ideological debates she and Komaeda got into.

The whole thing about her having a coomery design bothers me because it doesn't even fit her personality and it's such missed potential. She's supposed to be a gymnast but nothing about this design screams athletic. They could have even made her sexy with a skintight gymnast outfit but they had to go for this generic, shitty take on a gyaru (I think junko's design from the same franchise is a very shitty take on japanese street fashion). But at least it fits Junko's personality, it doesn't even fit Akane. Picrel - I think Tenko from the third game really suffers from the same problem as Akane, her design is far too girly (yet also somewhat unappealing to coomers, she doesn't seem to have many fans) and doesn't fit her martial arts talent at all or reflect her personality very well. I am a danganronpa fan but gosh some of the designs in this franchise are hot garbage and I could totally sperg for paragraphs but I wont.

general book thread ! CP !
tenkos design is annoying bc the character designers would rather die than let a female character wear anything other than a skirt, even when it doesn't fit their character. tenko hates men & is an athlete but they still give her a short skirt…
ill use toko from dr1 as a direct contrast & example of a character whose outfit (long skirt) actually reflects their personality. tenko had potential to be great imo, but her design doesn't do her justice

I posted some hero shooter characters in the last thread but god they haven't gotten any better. OW2 designs are still garbage and the most recent champion in paladins looks like picrel. I know probably no one else cares about these games anymore but I cant stand the shit-tier coomerbait designs when this game used to actually make good designs, including sexy ones! I mean this character is supposed to be the queen of demons or whatever she just looks like some generic monster bitch with the most ridiculous proportions and an outfit boring as sin. You can tell this was made for weird moid fetishes (peep the fucking FEET) . Also just one more cherry on top of the cake she's supposed to be black but imo the design does nothing to actually match that, like her skin looks way too light. Its just more lazy, ugly coomershit and hero shooters are honestly just filled with garbage designs now, not even just coomerbait ones.
File: 1688668246896.jpg (457.39 KB, 4096x1271, Fp6eI7pWIBEtKCe.jpg)
samefag but i completely foregot to mention how ridiculous and unbalanced the horns and wings look too, it's just way too much detail in one place while the rest of the design is boring as hell, picrel is concept art where she has this cape thing and even though using the wings as a cape is kinda silly it already looks so much more balanced than the design we got
God forbid Danganronpa let their female villains be insane in a way that's actually intriguing. I've also seen a couple people mention that Angie would have been a much better rival for V3 instead of the annoying shit known as Kokichi and they're absolutely right.
I swear this is one of the many reasons why I only engage with a select few fangames at this point. I absolutely love the concept of DanganRonpa but the execution really is just awful.
Looks fine to me.>>306555

The original designs are much better, the original concept of Distrust in general seemed a lot better than the final tween product. Another game that got this treatment was Bioshock which had an actually horror-themed concept before it got candy assed into a sellable product with cartoonishly bobble headed characters. Danganronpa is a major disappointment in that it had a lot of horror/mystery potential.

Hate this ugly ass hipster design. So far I'm really disliking the way they modernized Ooo and made it look like something from 2016. You can sense that time period in the writing too, it feels very mid 2010s in the worst way. The original designs were simple yet unique, not all of them were in my taste but they were very cohesive and timeless in a way. This already looks dated.
