Final Fantasy VII's Cast, Revised

Here’s comic artist Nikolas Draper-Ivey’s take on the main cast of Final Fantasy VII.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wow the racist remark and agrees really shows your and this websites ignorance.

DevilOgreFish580d ago

Everyone else looks better than cloud in this.

Kakashi Hatake580d ago

I get it, Blacks are known for ghetto/abrasive behavior. There's no one to blame but other Blacks that make me look bad. Not all of us are like that though. Rate people as individuals, not as a group.

nativegoku580d ago

Don't play the African culture / race down because of these lames on this site.

Who gives a shit what you like!

KwietStorm580d ago

Oh no I feel threatened by them colored people. Give me back "my" country.

Not like 99.9% of gaming/movie/cartoon characters aren't already white.....(sarcasm). Even Japanese/Asian characters get the white treatment despite white people only representing less than 5% of the total global population.

Plus, this was THIS artist's reimagining of FF7 characters. I bet you've never had to ask yourself, "Hmm...what if this character reflected more of my own culture or looked like me?"

Or maybe you're one of those people who cried because Spartan Locke was black or because Black Panther is a black prince of a highly advanced African Nation ("Why can't Black Panther be white?" T_T). Triggered.

Privilege....it's a helluva drug.

Also Barret is a white guy. So everyone is not black.

@343

Dude remember this is n4g where if your not primarily white/PlayStation fan

Than your getting disagrees left and right, this is coming from a PlayStation fan but I've been here long enough this place can be cancer sometimes.

specialguest580d ago

The art shown on the article was simply a pipe-dream sort of fantasy, nothing serious and some people are still offended lol. Yet it's perfectly OK when Hollywood whitewash Japanese anime/manga for their film adaptation.

Masta Kaos580d ago

Hehehe...draw your own and make them Asian again

I dunno. He said he was trying to capture the characters style, and their race had nothing to do with that.

So while I agree their race had nothing to do with it, these actual drawings were not really all that good in terms of keeping the original feeling of the characters in tact. They just all seemed like pissed off, black versions of the original, with Tifa in particular being almost ugly in comparison to the original design. For instance, the original Tifa was a woman who obviously took care of herself...whereas this rendition just looks like some skanky whore.

Sepiroth looks OK I guess, although the hair looks odd on a black character, but cloud has too much attitude in his looks, whereas the original was just kind of stoic and didn't emote that much.

Barrett isn't too bad, but he lacks some of that empathy behind his eyes that the original had. Barret, despite his gruff nature, actually had a gentle soul, and this character just looks like some stereotypical action game disposable bad guy.

Anyhow, i guess overall, what I'm trying to say is that he didn't capture the personality of the characters. The quality of the drawings is fine, and while I have no problem with him changing the ethnicity of the characters, he just didn't really make these characters seem like black versions of the characters, rather, just black people dressed up as FF7 characters.

How does she look like a skanky whore if she has the same outfit on? Is it because she is a black woman with natural curves and kinky hair?

rainslacker578d ago

Because her body is a big chunky for those kind of clothing. her hair is disheveled, not kinky. She just looks like she doesn't take care of herself.

Has nothing to do with her being black. It has to do with her clothing not being that appealing on her body style.

As far as "curvy", Tifa was curvy as well. On top of that, Tifa's style of hair doesn't just happen naturally. It would take someone who takes care of their hair to get that style with that length. This rendition looks like she just put a ribbon around it, maybe did a cursory brush, then left it alone.

Overall, it's just that he didn't capture the feel of the characters. Has nothing to do with the race.

Inzo580d ago

Lol, Sephiroth looks exactly the same just with darker skin.
