    I was wondering... I know people usually mean Chibi's when they say "Super-Deformed", but could'nt the term also apply to characters like Popeye and Elmer Fudd? I mean, what else would you call them?

    Actually, almost every cartoon character could fit under this moniker...

    What you're referring to is a caricature, something which super deformed is a sub set of.

    Here's the RX-78-2 [​IMG] And here's the SD version [​IMG] The SD version has kept the most basic details and is clearly an obvious reinterpretation of the harsher real design in cuter form. The key aspect is the proportions.
