Wondering about these. Yanderes and Tsundere characters also count for this thread. Discuss
Cranky Kong - Donkey Kong series
Arewo Stein Hakase (アレヲ・シタイン博士) - From Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, あれ has multiple meanings, but I think it was meant to be from the 荒れる form of it (referring to someone who is rough and is angry easily). あれ can also sound rude, but I read it is colloquial; not necessarily vulgar.
Kyorozou (and to an extent, Moe/Kyorosuke) - From Densetsu no Stafy series. Kyorozou is Moe's father and is stereotypically cranky, which lead to a fall out with his wife
Kaizo (his name itself is based on his hobby) - From Tomato Adventure. A Tsundere robot who hacks and creates unofficial Gimmicks
Princess Peach is sometimes portrayed as yandere (i.e. Super Princess Peach)
Waluigi is tsundere methinks
Who else? aaaaahhh ;_;
yes I'm weird I'm a lady who likes these sorts, they have spunk.

Hmm. Off the top of my head...
Falco, from Star Fox. - Maybe not necessarily grumpy as much as sarcastic.
Nia, from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. - Here grumpiness is explained by her back story. The English dub is divisive, but personally, I think her thick Welsh accent is what makes her sassiness work so well.
Mythra, also from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. - Her attitude is explained even more profoundly through her back story if you play through Torna - The Golden Country.
Marie, from Splatoon. - OK, maybe she's not that grumpy, but she comes across that way next to the cheerful Callie.
And as usual, there are any number of Fire Emblem characters that would qualify.

Nice posts . Also, thanks for the advice nocturnal YL. Adding Professor Oak and Agatha from Pokémon, Rereku (and based on James Bond 007) from Tomato Adventure, as well as Zinnia from Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire.
Last Edit: Dec 16, 2019 8:07:35 GMT -5 by Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: Thanks for nocturnal YL and addition of Zinnia
✿ Love others, but don't forget to care for the self. 🦋
Please be gentle with me if I go off on a tangent and am not understanding something. Capricious.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
