Mass Effect Species Height Reference. by Troodon80 Mass Effect Species Height Reference. by Troodon80
This was a request of sorts for ~criz.

Hopefully the grid behind the characters will help for size reference (and not just end up in a garbled mess). The characters are untextured to allow for a better view, but if it is preferred that they be textured, then I can just edit this.

All characters BioWare/EA.

Edit: Added Yahg, Baterian, and Rachni Brood Warrior.
Edit: Added an additional Krogan for comparison. Also added Rachni Soldier, Rachni Worker, and Varren.

Very nice. I would have thought that the yahg would be taller--he seems that way the first time that you encounter him on the Shadow Broker ship--but thinking about the specimens on Sur'Kesh, I think you've got it just about right.

Does the grid in the background represent any form of measurement (i.e. English/Metric)?

Troodon80 Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
No, it's more of a comparison grid than a measurement grid. Humans are roughly 6 foot, with the assumption based on Vanderloo; Shepard's model.

Hey, I was just wondering ... would it be possible to make a ships chart, like this one? I have no real idea of the size of the individual ships in the ME universe, except that the Destiny Ascension is supposed to be HUGE, lol, so that would certainly be an interesting thing to see.
Reply
:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
I actually had that request before. Unfortunately, the models are scaled up or down as necessary in-game. Unless I take a stab at scaling them myself, most of the ships will be the same size, give or take. I can keep looking for more accurately sized ships, but I doubt I'll find them.

Click on Download Image, then you should be able to zoom in or out on the image in your browser. Or, dependant on your browser, you can right click on the link and select "Save Link As..." and view it in something like Paint/GIMP/Photoshop/etc.

Now I want a sumo bout between an elcor and the Shadow broker, lol! :D
Reply
:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
It would be interesting :D.

Actually, it is quite odd, there are animations of elcor falling over (could be used as the death animation or the knock-out animation), but I don't remember see it used in the game. I don't suppose you have seen anything like that? Also, there is a running animation, not just the usual slow walking they normally do.

:iconskyward-dreamer:
Skyward-Dreamer Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Right? :D

I'm actually, or have been, a fan of sumo so that's why I had that association when I saw these two maybe not so gentle giants, he he.

I see, no I can't remember seeing that or a running elcor. Ah, imagine an elcor stampede! :)

thank you so very much for putting this together, you have no idea how useful this is - along with all the other reference sheets you uploaded :D
the untextered versions are totally okey
the only thing I might perhaps ask about - if it's not asking too much that is - would a krogan other than grunt could be added to see the hump & head in relation to other characters

but it's awesome help as it is :D

Not surprisingly, I was debating whether or not to include Wrex or some other krogan, too. I can do that, certainly. I'll probably have it edited some time today :).

I hadn't actually planned on doing the mercenaries, but was asked about them.

I didn't think to include them since I already had Jack and Zaeed as human references, but they would both be roughly the same as those two.

I always thought Quarians were supposed to be shorter. :|
Reply
:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2011
They are supposed to be shorter than humans according to the Ascension novel. But this is just the way the game is made, all humanoid characters use the same animations for things like holding weapons or cinimatics (so any character can be taken with you to, say, Purgatory and use the same intro animations). These are "natural" poses, so the height varies; but in reality most of the un-posed versions are almost exactly the same height.

Is it me, or does Quarians seem slightly taller then Asari? Maybe even taller then humans?
Reply
:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011
Shouldn't be taller than Humans according to the book, Ascension. Since everything in-game uses a similar bone structure (for animation purposes) most are about a similar height. When compared with no animation, most humanoid models are the same height, which is for convenience rather than consistency. This is really only a rough guide, though, but for the most part should be a reasonable representation.

Okay, now that I remember, you're right about that. It's just been I while since I been on the game. I was just going by the guide.

:icontroodon80:
Troodon80 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011
Been a couple of months for me, too. But I have the advantage of the models to observe and compare ^_^. This guide is as accurate as I can make it. Though, of course, things will likely differ from the actual lore of the universe. Here's hoping for more variety in Mass Effect 3 (probably not likely...).
