    So, while playing Trauma Center, despite it not being an RPG in the common sense, it made me wonder...

    When a game wants to spring a suprise "good guy turns out to be the mastermind all along" kinda scheme, why do they feel compelled to give them to weirdest, really fucked up hairstyles?
    Always weird playing a game going "Hey! You're really helpful and its awesome, we could be best friends but... i really cant trust your hairstyle...Something about it seems strange."

    Why cant they make villain with regular hairstyles that do not raise any suspicions?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    What about that hair doesn't scream "trustworthy"?

    Frankly, I think that pretty much all characters from all JRPG games have the weirdest, really fucked up hairstyles.


    EDIT: no offense to your avatar, of course. Still...I gotta admit I have no idea where that character is from, but by the hairstyle, I'm guessing it's from a jRPG.

    In fairness, JRPGs tend to be fucking batshit stupid regarding hairstyles.
