Yeah, it definitely feels like characters get taller/slimmer/more human like over time rather than the opposite. So it's interesting to see Orbulon as the exception here.This happens with many video game characters, but usually the other way around. Look at pre-SNES artworks of Mario for example. He's grown quite some leg over the years.
H-H-HEY, DEE-JAY! Que cosas reales.
