Its funny how DM Yami Yugi starts out fairly Yugi-like (depends on the shot) not very muscley or anything but near the end of Battle City and in the movie its just like WE HAVE ACHIEVED MAXIMUM CHIN POINT
Found the Evolution beta designs on the wiki and it looks like they were originally going for something closer to the first series’ style. I’m glad they went with the cartoony-er models since those betas are pretty uncanny valley also I get my fill of exaggerated expressions to make up for the live action
Also someone on the team had it out for William, his evil look was actually toned down for the final design (I know when he’s smiling he doesn’t look all that evil but when I first saw the outfit and eyeliner it was jarring)
They saved beta!William’s sickly green skin for Evolution’s XANA!William
I’m not exactly crazy about Evolution and honestly a lot of it disappoints me but I won’t pretend it doesn’t have good parts, and this is one of those parts.
(Context: Aelita’s in a bit of a slump since Jeremy’s been spending more time with Laura lately, and the night before Laura didn’t tell Jeremy she came by after she had a nightmare which didn’t make things much better. Also when Aeilita says “you’re she probably means all of Team Lyoko and not just Yumi)
