This is Nu Wa from Smite. Look who got a bingo!

I love Smite to death, but their portrayals of females leave MUCH to be desired.

Oh SMITE, you neverending well of snore-inducing generic “sexyness” and casual cultural appropriation.

At this point the only thing worth pointing out about this is that for a figure from Chinese mythology, Nu Wa/Nüwa/Nügua here looks suspiciously white. And, traditionally for SMITE, any claim of this portrayal being “historically accurate” hinges on mass delusion (and probably a certain youtuber’s disproportionate popularity).


PS: No need to claim precede a valid critique with “I really love this thing to death, but…”
