    I don't think he resembles Yugi at all. Maybe the hair does a little bit, but if you're saying it's a ripoff that he has spiky hair and a blue outfit, that's like, 30% of male anime characters right there anyway.

    Plus, Yugi doesn't dart around the desert in a motorcycle. That makes him automatically like, 100 times better.

    Uh... He's the game's main character, Wes. So?

    Besides, Wes only has one hair color. And he looks more like a young Vash from Trigun than Yugi.

    *waits for move to Electronic Games*

    C'mon - lesse we have the spikey do with the cute lil spike sideburn thingies, we have an almost identical trenchcoat/button-down vest with leather trousers/boots sort of outfit. Same sorta pinched face/pointy chin. Now going with the "traditional" Pokemon characters "look" you guys mean to tell me that the resemblence to Yugi is remote?!!! *sheesh*

    I believe that Yugi's outfit is supposed to be some sort of school uniform. Wes's outfit is more of a leather getup.

    Also common. I think most Team Rocket/Aqua/Magma faces are built like that.

    Wes probably isn't as psychiotic as Yugi....

    His name is Wes? Hehe.

    When I looked at him the first thing that came to mind was Kingdom Hearts, then Trigun. He does look a lot different than what I'm used to seeing in Pokemon human design. Was he even designed by Sugimori?

    Not all Team Rocket has that kind of face - Jessie, Cassidy and Domino don't fit your prejudictic statement.

    Interview with game makers at Pokemon.com.
    Looks like he was designed by that guy.
    Prejudiced? I have no idea what you're talking about. I said most, not all. And I was thinking more in terms of in-game characters. Grunts, executives, leaders, etc.

    so what if he looks like other characters............ yugi, vash, and all of the others were ripped off of something else............ anyone could come in and draw a character and if you wanted to look for it, you could make comparisons to something else......... it doesn't matter, oh well

    Ugh the next think you'll be telling me is that Cloud from FF7 is a rip off of Goku from DBZ....Spiky Blond hair. Also I think that some of the arists on Pokemon do work on Yu Gi oh in japan as well. That was the case with the whole FF7 thing and DBZ likeness anyway....but I'll look into it a bit further and find out for sure.

    Since this really isn't TCG News, moving down to the Electronic Games forum...*whoosh*

    I see your point - I think the bit that really shows the comparison is not his hair, but his stance. Feet apart - one arm outwards (Whether it be holding a Pokéball or a Card), with that focussed expression on his face.

    Though I do admit, I like the look of Wes way better than Yugi's look, and at least Wes isn't going to talk for 1/2 an hour straight about how he's relying on the cards, etc, etc... :-D

    LOL! it's so true. They waste sooo much time on mad rhetoric (pun a la Toonami).

    Remember that ep where they have an hour to play ONE duel and they go over time! Give me a break!

    I think there is a distinct difference between YGO and this so called "Wes." YG has too much clutter. W doesnt. What i mean is that YG has tons of wird stuff, clutterous activity, going on on his head alone. There is his funky-even-for-an-anime hairdo and his bizzare-wannabe-even-though-legitimately-so anime eyes. Where as W only has the weird token nonsensical item: his shades.

    So, i think there is a clear distinction between them; i wouldn't rush to compare them exactly.

    Honestly, the character is nothing like YG, in looks or in attitude. Just play the game.
