Miss Destructoid

Should there be a Miss Destructoid?

I donít know. I was just larking about. I thought it would be cool to draw a Miss Destructoid then post it on the cblogs to see what people thought.

My first idea was Mr Destructoid with a bow on his head. Just like Ms. Pacman. Then I gave her earrings. Then I realised that I was defining Miss Destructoidís identity by the accessories she wore. I didnít want to do that, it seemed pretty lame.



I started over. This time I changed only the arrangement of Mr Destructoidís features. Adding and removing nothing. I ended up with something like Mr Destructoid trying to pass himself off as a member of Daft Punk.



Then I thought this is bad too. It is not an interesting design. Itís just Mr Destructoid with a round head.

Is it better to have Miss Destructoid look like Mr Destructoid? Does that promote equality? It probably only highlights that biggest flaw in a concept like Miss Destructoid. Which is, why create a female character only to be an analogue to an existing male character?


In this case the answer to that question is, just for fun. So I guess it doesnít really matter. Here is my Miss Destructoid.

About Mark Smeeone of us since 12:06 PM on 05.19.2012

I started gaming with the NES. I had quite a few games back then which are now mostly forgotten. I remember I had a game called Totally Rad. I never finished it but I always liked it because the bosses filled the screen and you could use magic to turn into animals. Also the game is called Totally Rad.
Back then there was no internet and I never bought magazines so I chose every game based on the box art. Which is how I ended up with Super Turrican. Turrican was my Mega Man, I never finished it.
