As a special present for my Bikini Armor Battle Damage blog's first anniversary, I present to you: Female Armor BINGO!

Use as a reference to quantify how ridiculous a female armor is.

For the record: the game refers to the context of wearing skimpy "armors" for battle (any other context, like cosplay, is excluded).

When using the bingo card, PLEASE stick to the Rules and Terms. Here's an excerpt from the rules:

It's almost hilarious to look at the lack of imagination in the outfits of Mortal Kombat females. Do they ALL have to have bikinis and tiny thongs? It's all about Tee and Ay, and getting away with as much (or as little!) as possible, to the point where the next step is probably using three one-pound coins and some glue to dress them. In comparison a lot more thought goes into male design. Even Sonya Blade has become increasingly scantily clad and she's meant to be a Special Agent, not one of Shao Khan's whores.

Did I say hilarious? I meant depressing.

I'd argue that sharp ornamental pieces are not unique to bikini armor, most fantasy armorers use it

So is lack of helmet. 
Not all squares on this bingo are supposed to be exclusive to bikini armor, but their absurdity and impracticality is always more prominent on a scantily clad lady than reasonably armored dude.

And the square you're referring to says specifically "Sharp ornamental edges that can pierce skin.", as in the wearer's skin. We're not talking about any ridiculously pointy armor (like, say, Sauron's in the movies), we're talking about "armor" that's spiky and shows a lot of bare flesh vulnerable to those spikes.

Whats wrong with boobplate ?

It directs any incoming blows towards the center of the chest

Scrap-Lord Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2016
"any" is a bit of a stretch since boob plate is round so has the same chance of glancing off to the side as it is to the chest.
unless you're aiming vertically right between her tits its about as much of a problem as on any chestpiece

No, other chest plate designs help avoid this, but boob plate not only increases the odds of an enemy hit, but also makes the armor more likely to be pierced

I know how armor looks like, and if you want to frank. you can say the same thing about the belly fold on the second example you've given me.
By no means I disagree with you.
But when it comes to fictional "female" armor I'd rather be covered entirely in bookplates over, the standard issue greves pauldrons and metal bikini.

Yes but boobplate is still far, far inferior to quote unquote normal armor

Having 'fashionable' armory for women seems to be unrealistic 
like, thongs, underboob and more skin/skimpy can be vulnerable for battle. If you see a character who made a BINGO  there, 101% she wouldn't survive but if she did, it's probably her powers or complete luck

tbh, for how many characters I have seen with skimpy armor would made a lot of BINGOs

for me when comes to male armour
you know how bulky and big they are that I don't even know how they managed to carry it all throughout the adventure. SO that's kinda bit of the downside and also hOW do they even take them off or put it in again

No. Male armor doesn't have such problems (or any comparable ones).

hehe ... I remember how to put on the main character fanfic armor bikini I had to write more than one page studies and follow them throughout history until the end of the story.
you have great closing arguments probably 90% of the opposite side of the argument. Nice when someone so interested in the topic of women's armor.
and yet armor bikini may be justified. Rare but can.
Thanks for a fun table)

I'm so tired of seeing this awesome super badass male armor in games, and then seeing it on my female character and.... automatic boob windows and a school girl skirt! :D

At least I can find peace of mind in the fact that the moment anyone dumb enough to strut into battle in that like they're on a catwalk, it's sure fire that their panty-shot buns are gonna be dead!

A stupid costume design trope when the lower part of boobs is not held or covered by anything, but the boobs do not dangle and there are no nip slips.

TL;DR: Violation of boob physics.

Thank you! Frankly don't know what to think of this virality thing, considering I found out in the middle of the night that at least five geek sites, including popular ones like Kotaku and MarySue published those cards in their entirety, got ad revenue for the articles and never contacted me about it. Had to personally contact every one of them about it and ask to remove the images, as that infringes my copyright.

Fortunately everyone adhered to my request, but some made weird answers, suggesting first that there's some "news value" to my work that makes it fair use or that I, by putting credit on those bingo cards, encourage sharing of the images around the internet (I do, but not for commercial purposes!). Someone else tried to put the onus on me by claiming I didn't left any instructions for use (which I will write down today).
As is "contact the authors before publishing their work and respect their copyrights" didn't go without saying.

Oh no! this really says something about me. All I can see now is cleavage, high heels, bare back and thong.  I guess I spent too much time imagining Serana, Leliana, and Isabela.....
I feel dirty,  because now they are all just bare :(
