Here's how I try to judge embarrassingness of a character.

If someone were to come into the room and see me playing as this character, I would feel embarrassed to be playing such a stupid game. I know it's not a stupid game, but I'm afraid this other person's brief experience with the game (Xiao Qiao's shrieky giggliness or Zhang He's melodrama) would make them lose all respect for me as a person.

I am having a hard time deciding between Xiao Qiao, Zhang He, and Zhang Jiao's terrible voice acting.


At least Zhang Jiao's hilarious in a semi-accessible way.

Well, I wouldn't be caught playing as Zhang He.

I don't mind Xiao at all (I don't know what you find embarrassing about her, Kong---you're too manly to play as a giggly little girl?), and Zhang Jiao, like you said, can be accessibly funny.

I voted for Ma Chao anyway, because whenever he opens his mouth I want to crawl under the table. That or unplug the speakers.

I don't know, there's something unsettling about a 25 year-old male university student playing a game as a terrifyingly underage giggle-machine.

Ma Chao, definitely. He looks cool until he opens his mouth.

"I FIGHT FOR JUSTICE!"
"Jaundice?!? Kid, you oughta be in bed!"

Where exactly is this from? I need to look for it! (I don't normally play the English tracks, and I don't feel like playing through every possible Ma Chao scene...)

Kong, I thought you were going to vote for Xiao...

Nah, I was just trying to raise some possible alternatives to Ma Chao. He's by far the most ridiculous character because, unlike Zhang Jiao, it almost sounds like he's supposed to be taken seriously.
