There's always that character that makes you say to yourself.... "This character was not made for me." In my case, Sylvie is that character. 0_o Sylvie hurts my eyes. Did we really
need another pop idol besides Athena, SNK? Since Sylvie's design is based off of a Japanese pop idol (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu),
this design probably won't appeal to most Westerners. In terms of annoyance scale, I'd put Sylvie at about a
"9/10". (And people actually complained about Lucky
Sylvie is one of the few KOF14 characters that I really couldn't picture in 2D. Her design has way too much going on to be a 2D sprite, it would never work (or would take 2D artists 6 years to complete). In fairness, Sylvie's moveset, animations, and playstyle isn't as bad as I thought. Ironically, she might have some of the most
"entertaining" animations in KOF14/SNK Heroines. Her walking animations and mannerisms are pretty charismatic. Overall, she's trying way too hard as a design. Just when I thought I understood a little bit about Japanese pop culture, I realize that I'm still very much a westerner... lol. On one final note, Sylvie looks like Easter
and Halloween had a dysfunctional baby. KOF would be just fine (better) without her. Please stick to "cool" KOF characters, SNK.
