#9: Sophitia Alexandra – Soul Calibur
Yeah, yeah. We know. We’ve already included a hottie from the Soul Calibur series. But how could we possibly leave Sophitia Alexandra off our list? Soul Edge animator Tomoe Yamashita is on record as saying he held a particular “fondness” for Sophitia as he was designing her character. Uhhh, yeah, dude. We have a “fondness” for her too. Sure, she’s a capable warrior, selected as one of the lucky 20 to receive an oracle from Greek god Hephaestus. And yes, she’s got an awesome sword and a flashy shield. But whenever we look at Sophitia, we just can’t help ourselves from staring at her pair of huge… gigantic… ridiculously large…
sandals. Seriously. Just look at the size of those shoes! We think she’d be a much more capable fighter in a sensible pair of sneakers, and we’d love to see her in a classy pair of pumps, but hey — a girl’s gotta be comfortable, we suppose. And how can you not love a girl who lets you change the color of her underwear as an in-game option?
- Guys who aren’t afraid of helping out
- Greek food
- People who ask how much she weighs
- Characters who get killed off in video games so they can’t return in later games of the series (grr….)
