Does anyone else think the trope picture may need to be changed? It strikes me as a borderline example of Just a Face and a Caption. There's no context from the pic to derive that Tifa's a physically fit character aside from the caption saying so that she is.

She's the only one with noticeable breasts among the three and is wearing gloves, signifying she's a brawler. Aerith and Yuffie have different weapons and not particularly notable assets. It was chosen in an Image Pickin' thread.

Not sure how you add it to the article, but there may be some Truth in Television here - at least one source (The Guide to Getting it On, IIRC) advises women who feel their breasts are inadequate that well-developed pectoral muscles help what you do have *ahem* stand out a bit better.

There's also some Truth in Television in that most women with larger cup sizes tend to have bigger builds as well as more muscle mass. Women with petite builds typically have a smaller bust.

"In Sonic the Hedgehog, boob size seems to be proportionate to how Bad Ass you are as a woman. There's Cream, with none at all, who is very weak. Then there's Amy Rose, who has a gigantic hammer and pounds people with it. Then there's Rouge, who kick-boxes and has not only got large breasts (for a kid's game) but also displays actual cleavage."

Then where does Blaze fit in?

Isn't Police Academy's Callahan a complete aversion of this trope? Her short hair, tall frame and manly behavior cause people to keep calling her "sir" instead of "ma'am". Her large breasts are supposed to confuse us - how come someone this "manly" is also so voluptuous?

Not really. From the very first movie, she was known for having the look of a Lad-ette, but there are plenty of Lad-ettes on the list, and many of them have been known to be well-endowed. Thing is, being a Lad-ette doesn't exclude a lady from having Boobs of Steel so long as she can back it up, and Callahan has shown she can back it up.

The description needs one hell of a pruning, I must say. It's essentially saying the same thing about five times in a row, back and forth. Some female athletes are busty. Some are not. All of us most likely know one or two women on either side of the line. We don't need eleven paragraphs to make this point. Some people find the trope appealing, others hate it, and I can only assume this is why the page has grown out of control.
