Nier Automata 2B Butt And Panty Images: Director Yoko Taro Humorously Responds To Controversy

Nier Automata

Recently, Nier Automata director Yoko Taro talked about the “2B Butthole” controversy on his Twitter account. Taro seems to be supporting this butt-tastic fan movement as he even encourages fans to compile butt images for distribution. Here’s what we know so far.

Taro’s Support

One of Taro’s Japanese tweets seem to support the fan movement of showing protagonist 2B’s butt. “Due to 2B’s butt controversy, many outrageous drawings are being uploaded, but collecting and passing them around is a pain, so it would be great if someone could zip them all up and distribute them every week,” Taro said.

More than his work with the Drakengard and Nier series, Taro has also be regarded for his humorous public appearances especially when marketing his games. More of this humor can be seen on the Nier Automata Steam confirmation and his support towards Atlus’ “Project Re:Fantasy” game.

2B’s Butt

As of late, the “Nier Automata 2B butt” issue rose among the fans after Square Enix released the game’s demo to the public. Some of those who played the demo did their best to take a screenshot of 2B’s butt. 2B can do acrobatics when dodging, which reveals her panties and somehow, somebody get a closer look of her butt. Players might have to force the camera to view weird angles through glitches to peek under her skirt.

Apparently, the issue escalated when a fake image showing 2B’s butthole circulated online. Considering the game has already been rated M for mature by the ESRB along with confirmation that character’s buttocks can be seen and there will male characters without genatalia, many thought the butthole image was real.

Defense Fanservice

In the Nier Automata demo, the choices for 2B to avoid damage are just limited to her evasive dash, acrobatics, and shooting down projectiles. She doesn’t have a block with her current weapons which will force players to effectively dodge to keep her healthy. However, 2B is wearing a skirt which definitely makes it flutter and reveal her panties on flips and dashes. At best, players will see her butt most of the time if they’re excelling at dodging attacks in the game.

Similar to the original Nier Gestalt and Nier Replicant game, players can also shoot down enemy projectiles with their own. Alternatively, players can also use their melee weapons to erase projectiles with a good swing. Some of 2B’s strikes actually makes her so some acrobatic maneuvers with her attacks, Players will always see her butt as long as she fights.
