See this, kids? To me, this is good redesign. This is AMAZING. I realize everything on the big stupid Internet is sexualized (and in this burgeoning fandom’s case it may be more for the LOLZ than anything) but oh my glorb, my old ass is so tired of every non-human female character being recreated as giant tits/no waist/booty butt cheeks. Especially when it didn’t start until the moment someone beat Night 7.
Yes, I realize I’m making this argument based on an animatronic chicken (DUCK) that may or may not be haunted by murdered children and by very nature of being a robot should have no gender.
I think good character redesign needs to not only draw on what something physically looks like (shorter by comparison to the other characters, wide face, wears a bib), but also it’s quirks (spends a lot of time clattering in the kitchen, prefers to stare through the window instead of hiding behind the door). Those visual shortcuts let us know who that character is and tells a story.
Clearly, Chica likes to eat, but I also think she likes to share. People bond over food. People make their fondest memories over food. Like the happy cupcake that was so huge you and a dozen of your friends couldn’t eat it all, especially after all the pizza and candy and games and songs. That birthday party was the BEST.
Now there are no children. There’s no one to cut the cake or the pizza. There’s no one left to SHARE with. And to make it worse there’s some asshole holed up in a room with no SUIT on, RUINING the memories of the children who should be sharing cake. All that work in the kitchen for NOTHING and now THIS GUY? How DARE you!
Guilty mom stares, all the way down.
