CLOSED - Rate Cross Characters 21: Miki

Evaluate Miki based on her character design, combat usefulness, and Tilt factor -- which can mean anything, from how much she strikes you as cool to how important she is to the plot.

Character Design: She's just a dancing girl for Nikki's performance, one of three. She wears red, while the others wear blue and green.

Combat Usefulness: I never used her.

Tilt: Let's face it...apart from the occasional poke at Nikki and mild--MILD--amount of friendship with him, she's utterly worthless as a character. She has no depth, no pizazz...she's just a flashy dancing girl. I'm hardly one to consider dancing girls as wastes of life or anything, but this is one dancing girl who shouldn't have been in this game as an NPC, let alone a PC.

Final Grade: D.

Design: Now Zaperking, this is a how a whore looks, take note.

Combat: She can fight!?

Tilt: So she's a part of Nikki's band, big deal.

Design: Well, I wouldn't go that far...she's pretty decently drawn, although she's not the type you'd consider for taking on Lavos (and plot rationalization doesn't exist in that regard, either).

Combat: Hey, the Techs are nice. But Nikki is very much the sun to her moon in this case.

Tilt:

Not me. But I loved the Magical Dreamers.

Yes, I did love Magical Dreamers too.

But that was all Nikki playing, as I'll make clearer when he is rated by me. All she did was dance. Now, obviously, dancing takes skill, but it's just dancing. No matter what Square games try to convince people of, dancers are not suited to combat roles.

Character Design: She is pretty, and I actually like the star tattoo on her face, and the crecent moon headband...but the rest of her outfit is kinda weird.  What's up with the leggings and the strange, flip-flop-like shoes?

Combat Usefulness: I actually found her "Dance On Air" tech quite useful in combat...but not much else.  All in all, I didn't think she should have been a playable character at all.

Tilt: So, we have another girl pining away over an unrequited love interest.  And...that's about all we know about her character.  She dances and sings a little during the concert scene (which, I have to admit, I really liked the concert), then gets depressed and joins Serge.  It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

Final Grade: D

Ack, I missed Mel! Oh well, not like one more D would have changed anything...As for Miki...

Character Design - Pretty cool, I guess...I don't see how anyone would expect anyone to fight in sandals, but what-the-hey, girls do it in high-heels all the time in the funnybooks...Otherwise, she looks like she belongs on stage.

Combat Usefulness - Another person who uses gloves...for some reason...Are female dancers known for their punching prowess? I think not. Her Techs are kinda lame...if I remember correctly she floats around a lot...SexyWink reminded me of a few of Flea's Techs...but meh...

Tilt Factor - She's just another NPC that happens to join you (She joins you because she's BORED!!!)...Maybe she likes Nikki, I guess...but nothing really is known about her...*shrugs*

Final Grade - D

Design: She looks like a pop singer. Mission accomplished, I suppose.

Combat: Yeah, right.

Tilt: How was she a useful memeber of the team again? Oh, that's right...
