A strange cameo reference to Pokemon from Jagex? - Page 1
Just to confirm everybody knows who Lucas/Platinum is; he is one of the main protagonist of the games Diamond/Pearl and Platinum.
Today Jagex (the makers of the MMORPG runescape) to celebrate their release of the 2009 Christmas event on runescape put this image as the main banner.
The character in the middle (Tiny Thomm) bears a strange resemblance to Lucas don't you think?! Even though the beret is a common hat to wear in cold times of the year I still find it quite strange how he wears the same trousers and has a similar build to Lucas. It might just be a coincidence though.
In my opinion, it's a meaningless coincidence. If Jagex was intentionally making a Pokemon reference, then the personality of the character would be at least similar to Lucas/Platinum's (which it isn't.) Besides, those crutches throw the resemblance off.
Similar, but it seems that something is odd about it. I'm not sure what, though.
I honestly think that is just a coincidence. I mean really, the hat is what draws the most attention. The pants don't really look the same either.
