Some of our favorite video game franchises feature anthropomorphic animal characters, which creators feel are easier for players to relate to than a normal animal would be.
But when an animal character is "humanized" they often lose their appeal, and it becomes hard to tell who those human characters are supposed to be, since their animal forms were a big part of what made them recognizable in the first place.
Case in point- Koopalings and Bowser Jr. as humans:
And then there are those sexy "humanized" versions of animal characters, which are not only less appealing than the original- they're downright creepy if you think about it!
Who was hoping to see a sexy version of Chica the psychotic animatronic chicken from the Five Nights At Freddy's series? Ummm, maybe you're better off not answering that question...
