    I'm not too sure about the Chinese heroes or the Hindu ones. But they can't all be white people, can they?
    Chaac - He isn't white, absolutely not.
    Ah Muzen Cab - He isn't human-looking, its like saying Fenrir is white too.
    Neith - She isn't white, she is a light-brown (a little yellow), and also, its probably due to the occupation of other countries on Egypt (I think it was Greece and Rome), so she represents that. Also, have you noticed that the ancient arts for egyptian gods all depict them as yellow?
    Chinese - Yes, they can be all white. See all ancient arts of them, they are more white than in the game.
    Hindu - The only gods who have human-like colors are Kumbhakarna and Vamana. Kumba is brown and Vamana's skin is based on ancient arts of him too.

    You are trying to find racism where it doesn't exist, that is completely absurd.

    Actually they are gods so they can be what ever color hi-rez wants.

    Gods do not have to have the same skin tone as the people who worship them.

    were talking about Neith here not Cleopatra.

    And what's so annoying to have tanned if not black gods ? Does not look that annoying for xbalanque or chaac, so why not tanned egyptian gods ?

    This is the most ridiculous thread I've seen on any games forum; legitimately hysterical.

    I think the cult to Neith started out almost 3000 years before the Roman Empire even existed.

    Anyway, Mammoths lived in Europe at that time, so I am not exactly sure how was the climate in Egypt 5000 years ago.

    They are cartoon drawings, representing characters from stories. I'm pretty sure they can draw them however they want.


    I'm just waiting for Jesus and Satan as a playable character. Hahahaha

    jesus should technically be tan or black since all that took place in the area around the mediterranian... but he is depicted as a white guy.
    If you want assault to be balanced, you're playing it wrong.

    You're mine now. Ymir will love you and squeeze you and call you george.

    There is nothing wrong with that. But the egyptian gods with more human appearence either have a light-brown color like the ancient arts (Isis and Neith) or is brown (Bastet), so there is little to complain here.
    Norses were usually white or tanned, so their color is right as well.
    Greeks/Romans were always shown with light skins and hairs, so they are accurate.
    Want someone black? Take Rama and Kali. Blue was the color used to depict characters with very dark skins in ancient India, Kali, in fact, has a title which is "She Who Is Black".
