    Samus and others.

    I just googled Samus because my friend didn't believe she was a girl, pretty much every picture was perverted fan art, either her in a ripped up suit or in an erotic position! I was outraged that my favourite childhood video game character has been disgraced! Is nothing sacred any more? It's the same with every female character, you cant google wonder woman or cat woman without some pervy nerd flashing scenes from his wet dreams in your face! you don't get the same thing with male characters, you don't google bat man and get a ton of pictures with him with a huge boner!

    dont say rule 34, whatever you do :'(

    Welcome to the world of women?
    I'm afraid that it has lots to do with http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...WritersAreMale though you can replace the "writer" with "fans". I mean, finding pics of batman with huge boners isn't that hard, but...

    And well, it's not like Nintendo hasn't been cashing in with this for some time now, I mean do you think it's just a coincidence that Zero Suit Samus was available in Super Smash Bros Brawl? They do know what audience they want to target with this.

    This would probably be a good place to mention the Pose Like Wonder Woman meme (and it's predecessors here and here).

    A couple suggestions:

    - turn Safe Search back on.
    - DON'T search for "gay batman and robin"

    A friend of mine once needed a picture of a beaver for some or other graphic art project, and found that without safe search, he had quite a struggle getting hold of any pictures of aquatic rodents... ;-)

    I notice though that Google has fixed this glitch; even with safe search off, when you search for a beaver you get the kind of beaver a kid would expect. ;-)

    Also, this article http://gamecareerguide.com/features/...eo_.php?page=1 might be worth of interest even if it doesn't concentrate as much on the fan-porn that's drawn of the female characters, except for this bit:

    In a popular re-imaging of the box art of the game Mirror's Edge by a Korean fan, the protagonist has a considerably larger chest size, sports a new hairstyle, and her entire facial structure has been altered "to suit the East Asian standard of beauty." According to a kotaku.com article (Ashcraft, 2008), the producer of the game was unpleased with the character's new look.

    "I remember when I first had that image sent to me. To be honest, I found it kind of sad. We've spent time in developing Faith. And the important thing for us was that she was human, that she was more real.
    We really wanted to get away from the typical portrayal of women in games, that they're all just kind of tits and ass in a steel bikini. We wanted her to look athletic and fit and strong [enough] that she could do the things that she's doing.
    We wanted her to be attractive, but we didn't want her to be a supermodel. We wanted her to be approachable and far more real. It was just kind of depressing that someone thinks it would be better if Faith was a 12-year-old with a boob job. That was kind of what that image looked to me."


    Her formerly strong, angry gaze was replaced with large, almost frightened eyes, and her chin was narrowed and her jaw softened, to make her appear more feminine. What was before an unusual face with striking features was altered to resemble the generic, stereotypically attractive look of a common anime character.
    (The image is in page 2 of the article)
