Why do people love Krystal?

Question

Fookes

I have seen so many people who love Krystal (Both in a romantic way and in a general way), and I am just wondering...

Why do people love her? What makes her so likable? 

I am not saying that it's bad to love her, I'm just asking why.

I'm just going to quote what DZ said a while back about this kind of thing:

Quote

Magic is something that does exist in many sci-fi series, though often called something other than magic. Probably the most famous example is Star Wars' The Force. However, for this to work, the magic needs to be part of the universe. Neither Star Fox Adventures nor any game that followed it ever tried to make magic part of the Star Fox universe. In SFAd, it was just there. Remember, SFAd was supposed to be its own IP, not part of Star Fox. Then Nintendo made Rare turn it into a Star Fox game. To avoid having to remake the game from scratch, Fox had to lose all of his high-tech stuff and use a magic stick instead.

So... People like her because of her body? Wow.

I mean... There are like a gazillion other girls in games with big boobs and a badonkadonk. What makes Krystal stand out?

I seriously, honest to god, like her for her personality, and the way she interacts with other characters. She's just interesting. The eye candy bit doesn't hurt, but a nice wrapper doesn't indicate something good inside.

My guess, apart for the aforementioned reason, would be that she adds a supernatural element to the series. Up until Adventures, Star Fox was a series purely based on advanced technology, except for maybe Andross and his telepathy, but that could be explained with stretched science as Andross in his giant head form and his brain form are both results of Andross having turned himself into a bio-weapon, but I digress. Along comes Adventures, along with Krystal, and suddenly there's something more mystical and mysterious about the universe.

For example, when Star Wars episode 4 was released, what set it apart from other sci-fi series? The Jedi and Sith. People with unexplained and supernatural powers. What does Krystal have? She has somewhat unexplained and supernatural powers. She evokes the same thoughts that one thinks when thinking of the Jedi. Maybe not quite the exact same thoughts, as she doesn't have telekinesis or a lightsaber. Nevertheless, she brings with her something mysterious, and people love mystery.

 

Or maybe it is just the tits and ass. :V

Oh, I have done something unexpected to Krystal. It is so good, it would make the Nintendo writers seem like amateurs, even make Starfox Command seem like even a bunch of schizophrenic monkeys that wrote the English dubbed script to Yu-gi-oh GX can do a better job.

I'm not going to say whether or not it was a good thing or a bad thing that they done so(even though I personally think it was a good thing, it just could've been built upon better in the subsequent game), I'm just saying that it's a possible reason as to why people like Krystal.

Which one? She's written completely differently in every game she's in.

Star Wars

Star Wars is literally and structurally, beat-by-beat, a high fantasy tale that is in a space setting, not magical elements randomly interjected into a pre-established story that had none. Not that I don't think it couldn't work in Star Fox, but it was handled terribly. That's what I find most pressing about Krystal and everything related to her: "this could be interesting, and my headcanon is interesting, but hot damn was it introduced as tactfully as Sir Mix-a-lot in a funeral".

Assault. She was so shallow in Adventures, and boring in Command.

nothing. but it doesn't matter, because the internet lusted for another furry sex doll and i guess Minerva Mink and Zig Zag weren't enough so there's Krystal.

although i guess Minerva Mink and Zig Zag were meant to be furry sex dolls and Krystal was...not? maybe? i dunno.

I gotta say that it really feels like that the popularity of 10% (being generous) of the total might be due to the fact she's that one character that seems mystical and mysterious to the series. But that's it only for those people-- there's not much else that might provoke this feeling in her, as the nature of her abilities/powers is never really explored or even used at all as a plot device, so that leaves few people to have interest that belongs to this small sum. The rest really is because of the appearance itself.

Now the funny thing is-- you're right Kyubey. There's a ton of characters out there who were made with fanservice purposes, but even then, that's where the remaining 90% belongs to: fanart. It's kinda the collective unconscious of people have played SF games and had some main fandom involvement-- or even haven't played anything at all, that the fans' opinions of Krystal is that in general she's appealing somehow.

It probably began like this: someone thought she was fanservice-able, made fanart, other people liked it, some more artists made fanart, more people liked it and that became a customary behavior pattern. Krystal fanart (and its creators) established this positive feedback loop where fanart of her gets re-iterated and rewarded with popularity and faves/upvotes in a cyclic manner (no matter how much they've already seen it) within a community or loose group of people that have focus on specific interests, in which case being Krystal. It happens to other fictional characters as well often on the internet.

Krystal fanbase in its majority is, quite literally, an internet circlejerk.

You're right, it could've been done much better. I'll try to fix that one day.

Welll I love her way more in SFA then in other entries in the series.But in general I think we love her because well, she is the lead female and Fox's love interest! People tend to care about the lead roles in a series, and seeing how the fandom is mostly men its not hard to see why. 

We also like her personality and demeanor, She is classy, but still a epic member of SF!

I fell in love with her at a young age because she was so mysterious, we knew so little about her, and we still don't today!  I also loved her outfit in SFA, it was very pretty to me! I was disappointed with her outfit changed after SFA, but she still remains my favorite Star Fox character!

By SFA, do you mean Star Fox: Assault, or Star Fox Adventures?

This thread just went from 0-100 like that!

But in all seriousness though, it's probably because she's hot to a lot of people.

Yyyyyyyyup.

I'll tell you this, though: I fell in love because of her accent in SF Assault, and the fact that she is one AWESOME sniper! In a sniper battle, forget Wolf, Krystal  already beat him (In several battles as I recall)!

Other than that, I found nothing really lustrously appealling about her.
