Miss MSX Megapoll

It's been a while since MRC organized a megapoll, high time to revive this spectacle from the attic! In this megapoll we get to choose Miss MSX, which is the best looking female character in an MSX game. Here is a set of rules:

  • Miss MSX is a female character from an MSX game who, at least, has a clear portrait in the game somewhere (statusbar, introdemo etc.).
  • Games which are ports from other systems, or MSX games that have also appeared on other systems can compete as well.
  • There is no distinction between realistic persons (e.g. digitized), cartoon persons (e.g. anime-style) and cartoon-fantasy (elfs, half-animals, spirits/goddesses etc.).
  • Everyone can nominate one or more persons by submitting a relevant image, such as a facial portrait or a full-body image.
  • The nominated person can originate from adult/erotic games, but the image should not be about plain nudity. For example: if you nominate someone from a game in which the person slowly gets undressed: nominate the dressed image. Miss MSX is mainly about facial characteristics, fashion wear and personality/style.
  • You can nominate persons from games of which the setting dictates that these persons go partially undressed. Think of mermaids, persons living in prehistory or warmer regions and so on.
  • Persons appearing in more than one game (or a game series) can be nominated only once.
  • You can create a single image containing a collage of the same person from the same game, e.g. facial close-up, full pose, in-action etc. (recommended!)

So, crank up your favorite emulator, run a game containing a good candidate and make one or more screenshots. For a uniform looking list of nominees, best would be to avoid scanlines and blur. To make sure all images are available during voting, we'd like to host these ourself. Mention your nomination in the relevant thread, and send your nomination to miss@msx.org, even if you have reliable hosting yourself. There are already two nominations to demonstrate what such a nomination could look like. As picking and preparing these images may take a while, the nominating round is one for which we haven't set a deadline yet. We'll see how fast things go and will announce a nominating deadline when we feel it's relevant.

MäSäXi, it's about romantic side of your nature.
It's like loving Marilyn Monroe or Madonna.
It has nothing in common with loving real women.

I also prefer my female pengos to be real (it is legal in my country), but I agree with konamiman.

Pixie is/was my favorite female character.

Her hot tempered character always caused a smile on my face. I was SOOO happy with the FRAY vs PIXIE fighting game in Tower of Cabin.
