If I had to guess, I'd say that the whole "tall woman, short man" thing in Nintendo games came about from game-play restrictions. Smaller player sprite meant more screen to work with for the level and the female characters who had smaller roles could be rendered bigger.

And don't miss the moment he argues with an unlucky lawyer on whether that thing he grabbed is a stepladder, or actually a ladder!

I see "Pediatric Ward" and "Neurology" but I have no idea what that last part of the sign is supposed to say.

Rosalia Garden is what that part says.

Oh, Hey, It's Krystal!

I know she was only on a Chart, but seriously, she has had only ONE Stinking appearance before This!

And she still has her sandwich with her.

Must be a Regenerating One like that of the Heavy...

Wonder if she asked the Big Russian for the Recipe?

Samus Aran is canonically 6-foot-3. Just thought I'd mention that.

And she's *still* pretty short compared to the Chozo and most Space Pirates, even with her Power Suit adding another couple of inches.

I hope you guys didn't forget Mario's canon height (which means the other mushroom kingdom residents are EXTREMELY tall!)

Oh look, Krystal's in.

Wonder if she will reappear later on? Maybe having a complaint about how Nintendo doesn't Seem to understand how to actually handle her in Star Fox? Maybe a Fan Joke?
