Suggestion: Damsel In Distress get usage counts

I purpose this pic in substitution of the one used. You don't even have to change the subtitle of the pic.

Cure Candy
Fixed the link.

And yes I think that is an improvement.

I modified the link slightly — the Main. wasn't needed. Anyway, I like the image.

Hmmm...it's kind of a tradeoff, you get a much better visual while losing the dialogue, which helps with the scene. Then again, that dialogue could be made into the caption and potholed to the specific game.
What about this then?

[up] Eeeehhh, I think that one would look too cluttered at wiki size.
What about this?

[up] The quality's not very good. If it were, though, I'd say it's the better than the rest of the suggestions and current image.

The current caption is an almost exact duplicate of the one on "Save the Princess".

OP pic is preferred from me, snidely whiplash one is less concise

Bump...anyone else for the OP?
Not sure it's better than current.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
It doesn't bug me
I prefer the pic in the OP. The text doesn't really contribute much in the current pic IMO.

I think that the current image doesn't really make it all that clear that Peach is being kidnapped. She looks more like she's floating while leaning against some kind of dead bush to me, and the only thing that makes it clearer is the text in the image. I say OP's image works better.
It's Mallow, not shallow.

[up] I have to agree; I'm not exactly sure what she's being carried off by in the current pic.

I also agree. Assuming we switch to the OP's suggestion, would the caption remain the same or would an adaptation of the current dialogue work?

I'd prefer to put the dialogue from the current pic in as the caption, potholed to that game.

[up][up][up] She's being carried off by Booster. Who looks a lot like Wario, but totally isn't Wario (see he has a beard not just a mustache original character 1996 Square Soft donut steel).

I mean, I immediately knew who it was, but I've played Super Mario RPG... I guess you could say I knew who he was and why you should care. <_< (Not JAFAAC, though, Peach is clearly being kidnapped.)

Bump; any thoughts?

My only complaint is that it's Mario (sort of) kidnapping her, not Bowser, which is the more iconic Damsel in Distress situation for that game. I'm just nitpicking at this point though.

[up] Technically it's Bowser Jr., but still a valid (albeit really minor) complaint.

I think it not being the standard Mario and Peach's expression should make things clear enough.
Caption might say it's Bowser Jr. in disguise.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
