XD yeah. he usually looks clumsy or overdramatic, i've never seen a picture that meets in the middle and does it well. he looks clumsy in official or cute or typical fanart, and the ones that are supposed to impress people or look sleek or sharp or dramatic are just... redundant.
You know... Now that I think of it. That is a very good point.. I never looked at it that way since I just adore the character himself, regardless I kinda see what your saying now. I do hate his Gullible side shown in artwork...pisses me off. But still I am very glad this one appeals to you Thanks again man!
Though Knuckles is very gullible XD (and I don't mean offense in this, it happened when Vegeta was my favorite DBZ character, which is worse) but people tend to get some behavioral habits from favorite characters. Not that ALL traits are inherited, but some. Like.. the fact that it bothers you so much when someone draws Knuckles in all his humorous clumsiness. Or myself, I would get FURIOUS when I was playing as Vegeta in a DBZ game and I would even come close to losing (whether or not I even lose).
I hate ssbb like none other.. especially because they put Sonic in it and degraded him to the level of all the other nintendo characters with their abilities way beyond what's in their own games.. but I have a reputation at my church (which has a wii) for always, ALWAYS, playing as Sonic. You know how Super Sonic represents hope in his games? It... sorta completely changes in that game. As it should. I have yet to lose a round, too.. but you know those taunts he gets? I tend to get really cocky when I play. If I ever meet someone that takes my stock down to 5, while I'm trying hard to win, I'll probably get mad, there, too XD
