Anybody who says Killer Instinct isn’t a good looking game needs to take a closer look at the reflections in the ice. Amazing stuff!

True, always loved the ice effects from glacius aswell.
Also, that rain on Thunders stage always blows me away.
Cant wait to see what the lighting does.

I think Iron Galaxy may have finally got to Double Helix’ level with human character modeling and texturing. Bodes well.

You say that like DH made Thunder proportional. Haha

Thunder is definitely top-heavy AF, but it fits his character and they made it look good, imo.

Despite how big his shoulders are, it’s his forearms around the sides of his elbows that I laugh at. They’re so much wider than his biceps.

Why is his sword thick as an anime character? Anime broadswords look so silly.

Oh well. I would not have gone with the Viking theme but at least now I can headcanon that he’s a true barbarian.

I give him a 7/10. Not bad. I hope his retro is spot on.

Did he say DAH? I did not hear it

It’s actually not far from a realistic greatsword’s width.

Tusk’s sword is 3x as thick as the one you posted

as thick as his leg. Too wide. I hate anime.

That’s exaggerating a bit. Maybe ½ thicker.

Either way, I personally like it. And I love anime, however, compared to some anime swords, Tusk’s is ALOT more realistic.

One question guys, would any of you stand on a frozen lake and stick a big a s s sword in the ice right where your standing?

Yeah I would too.

Actually, there’s a variety of sword widths found historically, including some really fat longswords and broadswords.

I hate using Wikipedia as a source but it’s got some info on a system used to label swords in their variations of length/width ratio, with plenty of the Viking and Celtic swords being thicker.


It is true that Tusk’s sword seems a bit exaggerated, but it’s really just an upscale version of swords that already exist. Most big swords seemed relatively thin, even if you take into account their actual thickness (I’ve got a 2 handed display sword about as thick as my arm that we got from a catalog a while back, but you can’t tell since its as tall as I am) because making a large, thick sword would be very taxing on a real human. However, seeing as Tusk is not only a Killer Instinct character but also a man who’s hardy enough to be standing around shirtless in the middle of the artic with back muscles the size of a small bear, I think it can be forgiven if the sword is bulkier than a realistic sword.
Though, there are real swords that dwarf Tusk himself size. If I remember right, there was a Scott named Maxwell born with gigantism who wielded a claymore that was 7 1/2 feet in length.


On topic: God I love Tusk GIFs.

Awesome info! Thanks! :smiley:

i love the sword… the size look great and will fit in his gamplay and fighting style

Lol they can also take a look at that Nipple, and at that Back Muscle.

The sword is exaggerated but one thing that sets it apart from most anime is that Tusk looks like he can actually wield it, he’s a huge ripped barbarian not a 90 pound school girl or an angsty pretty boy you see in most anime and JRPG’s.

They would look good on my bedroom floor.
