You said she appeared twice in Chrono Trigger and CC... Are you talking about Lucca, or Ayla? Akira Toriyama sure made them two look like Bulma. Even Marle.

So is it Marle, Ayla, Lucca?

You guys are being way to literal.  Didn't I say the character was from a video game?  A Square game at that, which knocks out every last DBZ/GT game ever created?  She merely looks like someone you would expect to find in an episode of DBZ.  Akira Toriyama worked on more than DBZ and Chrono Trigger you know...


He also worked on all of the Dragon Warrior games. Too bad I've only played the first one, so I know no character names from that series.


Ding, ding, ding!  Radical Dreamer is the only one who has gotten even remotely warm: The character is from the Dragon Warrior series ( or more corretly, Dragon Quest).  She also happens to be a dead ringer for Videl, aside from different hair color and about three cup-sizes larger.  I like Akira's work and everything, by why is it almost  everyone he draws looks like either Goku, Chi-chi, Bulma, Number 18, or Mr. Satan?

Josh's Silvercry Impression: I am thinking of a name. It might have something to do with a person who looks like somebody you may have seen in a video game once, possibly. Come on, how many hints do you need? I'm practically giving this away!


Come now, Lord J.  That was jest was totally beneath you.  Having an off day?

Nonsense. All is in good fun. I'm sorry you took it the wrong way.

Some of the names are pretty out there...like Sephiroth.

But, seriously-if you think the name is nice, name the kid that.

After all, remember the names of Frank Zappa's progeny-Dweezil,Ahmet,Moon Unit, and Diva. (BEST NAMES EVER.)
Or, even worse...Cher's daugther. (Chastity.)

Likewise.  Sorry if it sounded like I was upset or something.  I made that post just before going into my weekend Army Drill, and that always puts me in a bad mood.

So very close, but no.  Incidentally, I've been meaning to get that game myself.  From what I've read, itís the 'screw graphics in favor of game play depth' game I've always longed for.  But I still have ton of other games to finish first, and I just started the fan-translation of Dragon Quest V, which I've been dying to play for years now.  Ever since I finished Dragon Warrior IV, in fact.

She's a PC.  But neither of those.

and that the name was made in 2000 before the game of the same name was made, that only leaves number 8, which i dont know the names of, which i doubt the names have been released. That, or a spinoff game...

Names have been released. At the very least, since this last E3.
