Kris, Then And Now

The heroine of Pokemon Crystal with physics-defying hair, known as “Kris” for her default name, was the first playable female main character in a Pokemon game. While I don’t have anything against “Lyra”, the differently-designed one who succeeded her in the remake, I still like Kris’ design better.

In a bit of unintended similarity, almost two decades later, the name “Kris” would be given to the main character of Undertale sequel Deltarune. The two look nothing alike, and their names have different inspirations (the first is obviously derived from “Crystal”, the second is derived from Frisk, Undertale’s main character).
