and generic fishes like Finneon line and Basculin.


The Finneon line is generic in utility only. As concepts, they do not belong with the generic fishes. They're bioluminescent!

Okay. Thank you for informing me ;)

So, 2 or 3 evolution lines qualify as an obsession now? And why, if TC stated in the topic title that it's about designs, everyone, including TC himself, starts talking about Pokemon types instead?

I don't think that's so much Gamefreak as it is a staple in most RPG monster designs.

On a somewhat related note, Nintendo seems to be obsessed with bosses that appear to be a face with 2 floating hands.


?
I can only think of Andross from 3 star fox games, and Oikinny as the first boss in Star Fox Assault. Who else?


Gohdan, for starters...this isn't a Nintendo thing. Folks have been doing this sort of thing for ages. Think of the statues on Easter Island.
EDIT: Zelda has another one in TMC.


Bongo Bongo to some extent.

How I feel when people are against features being added to a game or something needs to be nerfed because its not realistic enough: http://i.imgur.com/0Dqiu.jpg
