  1. I still think Prince of Persia: Warrior Within is a great game (I like it as much as Sands of Time) and the character redesign made plenty of sense with the story. The Prince had that dirty appearance because he was desperate and frightened while being chased by the Dahaka for the mess he caused with the ordinary course of time by using the sands in the previous game. I don't think that he was edgy at all.
    And the Prince didn't say much in Sands of Time except mostly in-game monologues, so he didn't have much charisma to begin with.

  2. Dante (2013) and Knuckles from Sonic Boom are my least favorite characters Knuckles is retarded and Dante from 2013 sucks i mean even his origin is messed his mother was a human not an angel and insulting the first game makes me want to find a flamethrower and burn the game to a crisp

  3. Actually, I didn't mind the Warrior Within Prince. Yes he was a deviation from the original version but the story did a passable explanation for his change. Once things went better for him he gained back some of his earlier charm in Two Thrones. I wouldn't call this a "redesign" more than actual character "progression", something horribly missing from most modern game series. Hell, you could call the 2008 Prince another "Nathan Drake" clone if you really want to talk about overused character personas.
