Cloud, Snake, And Hatsune Miku As 3D Dot Game Heroes

By Spencer . November 4, 2009 . 8:07am


Don’t like the Dragon Quest inspired protagonist in 3D Dot Game Heroes? Fine, design your own hero. From Software added an editor that allows players to customize the hero and one Final Fantasy VII fan changed him into Cloud Strife.


Other players made 3D Dot Game Heroes models of Old Snake, Hatsune Miku, Patty from Tales of Vesperia and Badman.








3D Dot Game Heroes isn’t out in North America yet, but you can draft a custom hero now with Q Block. It’s a block art program that some gamers are using to share 3D Dot Game Heroes templates. As an example, here are Aigis from Persona 3 and Jeanne from Bayonetta as Q Block figures.

    Neat feature. The more i read about this game the more I like. Hope the North American publisher will make an announcement soon.

    Hey is that second to last one Patty from Tales of Vesperia? This is so cool though I wonder how hard it is to really do these, I am pretty good at making pixel art for Animal Crossing on DS, though I dont think that will help ;p

    Awesome! I wonder if you just download them instead of having to make it yourself. Still cool nonetheless

    I’ve seen a decent Link from somewhere. I think it was an article in Kotaku that linked to a video on

    I see a shield show up in a few sprites. I wonder if it’s supposed to be functional in the game or not. You can see it in the Cloud figure in this post, as well as that Link figure I talked about, but the one I saw of Link was part of the block sprite.

      SSSHHH, you don’t want someone to get sued by Tomino now do ya…naw that’s no more a Gundam than the bots in SRW are Gundams….

    this is diffidently a plus ^_^’

  • I loovve pixel art, these are so cool! I’m always amazed how well these resemble their counterparts.

  • Tokyo Guy

    I got the game a few hours ago. The custom character thing is WAY too time consuming for me-you have to put in thousands of blocks because of the 3-D nature…

  • Thanks for this! I’ve now got Hatsune Miku saving the 3D world! :D
