would a fighting game be without the token blonde chick? Visually, Taria is a
very straight-forward, generic for a female swordsman. Her dual-sword fighting
style in game is fairly decent... and speaking of "token blondes,"
Taria actually has a throw using her legs similar to Cammy's
and Sonya Blade's, and multiple kicks
like Sarah Bryant. Not sure if it's
purely a coincidence, but it seems like the designers planned this.
Taria's a bit of a cliche as a design... but I have to give the designers props
for giving her attractive female proportions. Considering other females rendered
in 3D games of the time, Taria is at least built like a female. That's actually
an achievement considering the technology at the time. lol.
