If I may, I'd also like to question this: Why are a bunch of trophies lower quality than others in Brawl? I mean, some look like their hair is unconnected to the body or is a miscolored block of flesh, and some are fully rendered into looking like there are individual hairs sprouting from the body. I'm sure that if you could zoom in close enough, you'd see the hair as a solitary entity even on these, but I mean, really? Funky Kong's arms look like his hair is sprouting from his elbow and has been gelled into position. It looks like ass. Not a cute one, either, I'm talking wrinkly old man ass.
Melee had a similar diversion in quality. Usually, wherever an enemy character was used in-game, it has a lower poly count, unless a separate trophy model was created (look at the difference between Koopa Troopa and Paratroopa, for example).
Brawl has a similar problem, especially with some of the Assist trophies. I'm happy Jill is in there, but her model is ugly as sin!
Nearly all of the non-gameplay models in Brawl are all taken from other games or official art. The Kong family are all based on their recent Paon models (Barrel Blast, etc.), and I imagine that's where your issue with Funky comes in. Donkey Kong, however, is a prominent in-game character and has been modelled to reflect that increase in focus.

I'm not a good Brawl player and have hardly unlocked anywhere close to "everything", so no, I won't reset the data. The fact that Wi-Fi games saves cannot be copied is a reason against resetting too.
I did try to get achivements in Melee or Kirby Air Ride, but in Brawl I simply stopped trying, since a lot of it involves repeating the same thing tons of times (do something with all characters), playing in modes I don't care about, and playing in modes too difficult. (Handicap is still at play in higher difficulties, it's just less obvious than Melee).
And yeah, non-gameplay elements (trophies, stickers) are direct copy-and-paste. One reason to make me think Brawl is made with less sincerity than Melee. Developers don't seem to pour their hearts into this project. More importantly, I think Brawl commits the "quantity without quality" problem, but that's just me.
There are two copies of Brawl in my house: the one my brother and I play together, the one that gets used by guests, etc, and the one I have up in my room on my own Wii, which nobody ever uses ever. Because of that, I reset the data on the one in my room just so I could go through and unlock everything again. Because I have no life at all.
Subspace Emissary is much more difficult when I have, like, twenty stickers total.
All characters unlocked, all Classic trophies, all Target Test trophies, all Home Run Contest trophies, all Alloy trophies (These are tough!), working on Boss Battles and All-Star challenges. I need more stickers and trophies, but these will happen the more I play..

I played Brawl at my friend's house and my friend hadn't unlocked quite a bit on his Wii. So I got to act like nearly everything was reset and went on an unlocking spree. It wasn't exactly barrels of fun, so I don't think I'll ever reset mine.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
