Either way though, the Amazon is still fucking ridiculous.
...And you genuinely feel bothered by that? Because I don't see the problem here.
Me neither, it's very different. And the men are just as ridiculously proportioned (the Fighter's arms are like twice the width of his head, and the Dwarf is clearly 'roided out).
Ooooh noooo a girl with muscles. I know they overdo it a bit there, but what else will happen when you swing around a giant weapon or do physically strenuous work? If you go to a Cirque do Soleil show, you'll see some of the women have a proper six-pack. Not sure if it's because they find it attractive (but that's besides the point), but its just something that happen as an occupational circumstance. Quite frankly, I admire they went such a route -- who the fuck else has? Anime-like games in general are overall just *way* too satisfied having a little 90lb girl flailing a gigantic weapon the rest of the time.
It's balanced out anyways; the Witch is meant as a 200% sex-pot (the fact you fellas are actually finding HER ridiculous is humorous almost; quite frankly it's how I've felt about the over-machismo'd Street Fighter roster for YEARS -- those guys have muscles on top of muscles), while the Elf really doesn't stand out anywhere (except featuring a bit of Chun-Li thigh).
And this is why I tried to post those pics. What I was trying to direct your attention towards was the Amazon's posture. Even trying to stand like that for more than a second is hard on a person's back, let alone walking around like that constantly, nevermind carting around a giant motherfucking pole axe. Seriously, she's two arms folded up at her sides away from assuming the T-Rex karate stance (which is built around the premiss of bullrushing your opponent and chomping their faces off; it is not a popular style), and if she placed her hands on her ass she'd look like she was trying to make the letter 'P' with her body.
Granted, I get that they're trying to emphasize the ass and thighs, but just looking at that back makes my own back ache, because seriously, that is some goddamn painful looking shit.
