El Shaddai is a game based on Jewish legends. I didn't think it was good, however. Pretty though.

Would Fran count as tribal because she has no stereotypes to me?


Fran is not even human!


Neither is Cloud (technically), Sephiroth, Zidane, Kuja, and Terra (sort of). Yuri from Shadow Hearts is not Human yet he is Russian/Japanese. Also Goku isn't human yet he has Japanese features and is therefore Japanese, so Fran of course has black features, so therefore a black character. So the non-Human argument is invalid.

If you believe in Pikachu, have accepted him as a cute lord and savior, and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

Don't enough movies and T.V.shows have Jewish culture?


this lol. for the amount of people that are actually jewish in our country you see an uneven ratio of portrayal in the media.

studies show that there's like... anywhere from 100k-6mil jews in america.

that's less than gay people.

What is Jewish culture? Or do you mean Judaic culture.

The former is already there, the latter's there in spurts, mainly via obscure cabbalistic references and namesakes people think are original character names and places.

So Zasalamel is not black because he isn't Human either? I guess Raven isn't black because he has no ethnicity nor any record or place of origin? Life sucks for black people, they get some cool black characters and then others try to claim they aren't black because they are not Human, yet white non-Human characters get a free pass.
