I've always thought Bonnie Anne (One of the companions you get very early on in the game) looked a lot like Fox McCloud from the Star Fox video game series. They are both foxes, they both have a red scarf, they are both skilled sharpshooters, and their designs just look similar in general!
I'm wondering if perhaps a staff member here could answer whether Bonnie Anne's design was inspired by Fox intentionally, or it was just a coincidence? Either way, I think they're both great characters!!
