This gets worse when you consider that Nicole-458, was never meant to be an ongoing character – they literally made her up just so they could have her in another studio’s game.  Creative freedom opportunities galore.

Rachel had been a major part of the Ninja Gaiden franchise for over ten years and apparently everyone involved thought it made perfect sense for her to use the same fighting style as a 7’2", heavily armored sci-fi super soldier.

Also I am aware that Rachel only appeared in the Ultimate edition, not the original, so probably had a lower budget for development – but that still doesn’t excuse the choice of matching outfit to fighting style and the lack of people questioning this decision.
