Question: Has there ever been a female looking mech (feminine looking or directly female in appearance) outside of anime?

I'm going over the Battletech mechs in my head right now and I can't think of one.

Googlesearch: gynoid. That's the closest you'll get as mech armour, which I think is what you're talking about, has always been about defense & efficiency rather than emulate the human body outside of japan's mechs.

Well, that's at least female without being anime. I know stompy mechs are all about designing the best design for the job you're trying to do but I was just wondering if anything was 'stompy mech' feminine not just robotic lady like gynoids.

One problem we are facing is that feminine traits are closely linked to human body structure, ans stompy mechs tend to have desgins that depart from this, compare a male and female skeleton to one that a mech would have and you can see what I mean.

Very good point, when I say feminine I mean more outside of purely physical traits. Like, not trying to match body shape but being lighter, fast looking perhaps. I'm not sure where I'm going with this.

>>21501
Pretty much anime looking, I don't know the source but even if it is western it sure doesn't look it.

... I think the girliest non-anime mech I ever seen was Steel Batallion, which is a japanese game.

And even then, they're girly on a technicality, since they're focused on being wide-waisted, long-legged, sleek and lightweight.

Okay so you're just going to ask for 'not from anime' but then dismiss literally any non-anime feminine robot as 'anime-looking.'

If you're just going to make a disingenuous troll thread you'd probably get a better response on /m/.

You sure as hell don't know where you are going that's for sure, but from what you said I would have to go with scouting based designs since they're made to be fast/light and thus might have a pinch of a femenine trait, likewise "assassination" modeled mechs might have the same traits since if designed for close combat they require the same traits as a scout and then some more.

I'm trying to get examples from mechs (the fairly stompy western kind) that are feminine by looks or traits. I'm trying to design a mech for a game bro.

But the 'western' kind of mech is still 'anime-looking,' since they are all still descended from anime designs.

Even >>21514 looks like something out of BLAME!. And it certainly isn't 'stompy.'

you have been watching too many animes to know the difference between western mecha and any other mecha. back in the good ol days the robots looked like the bullet blending machines but with strobes and lights in the head dome. the anime ones look more humanoid, and always have- but that's if youdisregard the zoids and i really hate anthro bots

You mean like the assorted anime robots that most of early battle tech was ripped/licensed from?

The earliest robots were man-sized things like robby the robot. Once you get to stompy things you're looking at shit that descends from anime or the shit that the anime stuff is based on in the first place.

Perhaps the problem isn't me watching too much anime, it's you being ignorant?

Well, thanks for the one's who tried. I'm saging my own thread because I'm done replying and I figure it's also done. The seriousness is gone, I already have an idea on how to make this supposed mech. Sorry for not being more of an Internet person.

Because everyone knows jules verne was japanese just like davinci (you might want to research on his droids a bit, basic stuff in function but really impressive)

So you're going with 'a robot elephant' and the tripods from War of the Worlds. You are trying to say that those are the underpinnings of modern 'western' mecha design.

You are a fucking idiot.

>>21544

They were androids in BLAME! too.

There is no such thing as western or 'anime' in modern mecha design. The amount of batshit diversity that gets thrown out in both creates a ridiculous amount of overlap even before you consider that the two ('two' being a stretch) have been stealing from each other constantly since anime made giant robots popular.

>So you're going with 'a robot elephant' and the tripods from War of the Worlds. You are trying to say that those are the underpinnings of modern 'western' mecha design.

No. I'm saying that you are painfully generalizing mechs by the side of the super robot genere where a massive artillery vehicle is modeled as a humanoid, whereas in trought western history's "mechs" have been more than just that. The elephant is just an example of this and most certainly jules verne wasn't into "anime". The AT-ATs from star wars are also mechs, just like their chicken legged brothers the AT-ST. And I hardly believe the production of the place knew what "anime" was at the time.
They most certainly are not modern but when talking mechs there is more than just the stuff that comes out of japan for ideas of design and I'm quite certain that the old sci-fi novels that speak of mechs did their part too, so try to give credit where it is due.

>They were androids in BLAME! too.
That's not the point, the point is that an android is not a massive artillery vehicle capable of being piloted. They are humanoid replicas, that are the size of a normal human being and you can't compare them to a piloted unit, much less on a "semi-related" example pic.

No, YOU are retardedly generalizing japanese robot design based on sections of the super robot genre. There are a shit-ton of non-humanoid robots in anime.

Do an analisis on the basics for said mechs, there are several things wrongs with the pic you posted.

>You mean like [text]

Kind of. When speaking in terms of who ripped who tho is necesary to make a note of research from where it REALLY came from instead of making assumptions by the looks. as a somewhat of an example. you said a star wars assassination series droid is simmilar to a droid on an anime. the basics on which got made first can heavily counter that claim since the argument you presented is about the fact that you knew of the droids from said universe BEFORE you knew of the model from the other universe, but what if one influenced the other? What IF said droid from star wars existed since the very first movie? your viewpoint can be neglected as being somewhat backwards induced if it was the case, don't you think?.

Well, it didn't. But that's also irrelevant.

Of course it can't, because that's not my viewpoint in the first place.

So the entire context was defined by the fact that he generalised gynoids as anime looking for being humanoids (which he discarded later before leaving), thing which can be heavily discarded when it is stablished that droid =/= mech, mech = vehicle with certain characteristic and gynoid = droid?

I'm gonna have to ask what you mean by "female looking mech," since I look at stompy mechs (like Battletech) and I don't see gender, I just see actuators, stress points and centre of gravity. I don't see refridgerators or toasters as being "male" or "female" either, so I'm gonna need some help.

How would I recognize a "female-looking" mech if I saw one? (and while I'm here, how would I recognize a "male-looking" mech if I saw one?)
