Shoutout to

From today, we separated the Muscular Women concept into two classes based on Daniel's ideas.

We need a popular anime gal who fits this concept page. Feel free to nominate with the best picture. I'll leave the gallery blank.

thank you.

Almost done transferring. It's ironic to call this concept Amazonian Beauty when some of these girls are kind of ugly. (IE: Heaven's Bear)

@takashichea: I'd go with Risty from Queens Blade

@Sonata:

I forgot to put in the post that we need an awesome default image. I can't wait to see what image you pulled out for Risty.

@takashichea:

What about Strong Women concept page? Should we merge it with one of those two pages?

EDIT: for default picture we should use Boa Hancock. She is the amazon queen after all.

@bigz007:

Well, Strong Women is about their personality and their drive not their physical characteristics.

How about Neliel?

It doesn't have to be this picture, ofc.

@bigz007: The Amazon beauty is supposed to be a woman that you can tell that has been in a gym. A fit and toned muscle structure.

@bigz007:

I forgot to add her and Nel. Will do it right away.

@Sonata:

Awesome!

We got one vote for Nel and Risty.

@takashichea: We could probably use a better pic for Brawn Hilda as well.

I think you are mistaking this for the rock hard abs concept. The real amazon is wild and strong, and she DOESN'T go to the gym.

And FYI Risty doesn't have those hard rock abs either, that is just a fan art picture.

On it.

@bigz007: You have misinterpreted the concept here. It requires women who have more refined and toned muscle structure. It 's not looking for the wild amazon type. Esscentually it is looking for anime women who have a similar body type like Wonder Woman, but do not necessarily act like her.

As for the Risty pic Eiwa is one of Risty official artist for her combat book. Though she isn't more toned in them like in the picture above, she still fit the bill perfectly here. If Taka wants me to use a pic from on of her combat books I will.

And yet there is Mikasa Ackerman is the list of Amazonian Beauty with no muscles whatsoever. It's the same with Motoko Gettou, Linda Halloween, Botan Tsukishima and some other characters.

I don't care what default picture you'll use, I just made a suggestion. But don't go and make double standards just because you think your choice is better.

I just read up on the trope and Sonata's views. I should remove Heaven Bear and some unattractive gals in the character page.

A quick litmus test for this trope is:

  • Is the female character in question muscular?
  • Is her muscularity emphasized (pointed out in-universe or by flexing), or is she noticeably large?
  • Is her muscle the integral and dominant physical trait of her bare skin due to large mass or definition? (Is most of the skin sculpted or bulky instead of smooth? Fairchild at right is an excellent example of both "sculpted" skin and muscle mass.) Of course, this can be Depending on the Artist.
  • Finally, is she accompanied by tropes which emphasize Fanservice, Beauty, and/or Attractiveness?

If the answer to all four above is "yes," the character qualifies for this trope.

@bigz007: Mikasa does fit the bill, due to the official pics we have seen of her. If you stripped Yoko and Mikasa into Bikinis you will see that Mikasa would have more tone and definition. As for the others not sure, unless we see more art.

I vote for Risty.

@Sonata:

Funny thing. So we made a concept page from Daniels suggestion that he made from this page

In the examples of amazonian beauty is Cattleya from Queen's Blade and not only that she doesn't have muscle form, she is rather chubby. So with this, your theory that amazonian woman must have rock hard abs is wrong. But do what you want.

@bigz007:@Sonata:

Well, adictoalatrama and I added Felicia. She doesn't have rock hard abs, but she has muscular arms. What counts is that she is pretty muscular in one or more feature. Chun Li doesn't look like she has abs, but she has thunder thighs.

For Boa Hancock, she is pretty tall and slim while it's hard to say for Nel. I'm looking at her screenshots. She has normal arms. I need to look at her legs and waist. It doesn't seem she has a toned waist.
