They’ve also got the more masculine Melee frame, so it’s a mix of both.

We went over this already. I doubt she wants to be bothered with this identity thing again. She’s well over that.

Um.. It’s actually confirmed 😛 Sheik is Female, who is intended to look like a Boy or something. Besides, Look at the Picture at the Bottom row to your right. Men don’t have (or at least shouldn’t) such big breasts, lol.

No, Sheik’s gender was never confirmed. It is a popular controversy among Zelda fans. And those aren’t breasts, they’re well-developed muscular pectorals. Please take a better look at Little Mac or at least brush up on you anatomy.

This might sound a bit weird…but do you know in animes and some places of the world…how some women use bandages to cover their breast…when they do that, the bandages are tighten around that area and kinda…pushes the breast in more towards the body making it look a bit flatter than normal size….

In this picture…you can see bandages in that area…..and actually if you look at the first 3ds pic at her chest you can clear see it looks femalish…..

Flattening your breasts this much is quite unhealthy and probably impossible. I know what you’re talking about, but that’s not what this is.
Please cross-compare with other SSB4 characters instead of other media. Different artists have different art styles. It does not look like ZSS’s breast, it looks exactly like Little Mac’s pectorals.
You can think she’s a girl, but your argument makes no sense. Either they’re a woman wearing some armor or a fake chest, or they’re a muscular man.

Ok I looked and I see what you mean……..It does look similar to Little Mac. So if Sheik gender is unconfirmed, and fan bases are arguing it’s Zelda in disguise or it’s a transformation that turns Zelda into a male…..

Would that make Sheik an it?

Them, they and co. seem like the safest gender-neutral pronouns. We used he/she here and we started arguing. 😛

Sorry 😛 Although in it was never directly confirmed by Nintendo, in the Smash Cannon Sheik is really a girl. I don’t think her Trophies in Melee and in the Brawl Manual would call Sheik a “her” if Sheik is male. It states in one of her trophies that she used her magicial skills to change her skin tone, hair length, eye color, and clothing. Even on the DOJO!! Website, Sheik is referred as Female.

Or, Sakurai has no idea of Sheik’s gender and sticks with the most realistic possibility. He also makes a few mistakes sometimes. It may be his game, but he’s still just “borrowing” the character. You may ramble all you want, but Sheik’s gender has not and, probably, will never be confirmed.

We’ll considering it is his game, can’t he chose the Gender, with permissions of course,? After all, in the Manga Sheik is a females. And couldn’t he just ask what Sheik’s gender is? And can’t he change it on the Website, so why doesn’t he fix his mistake and change it to Sheik instead of She?

The revamped side special should be fun, true it doesn’t give Sheik as much area denial but (s)he doesn’t really need it …:p

Do men have chests that bulge out like it does in the bottom left screenshot?

After ZSS was confirmed, I was positive Sheik was in.
