Mod transforms Nowi into an adult in Fire Emblem Awakening
A Mod transforms Nowi into an adult in Fire Emblem Awakening which is a game released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, the game is an RPG in which you can choose a character to have a love relationship in the game.
One of the options for love relationships in the game is Nowi, this character is of a certain race there and that’s why she is over 1,000 years old, she is already an adult in this case!
So what’s the problem with Nowi? Well, basically, people consider her a lol*, a lol* over 1,000 years old, so there were people accusing the game of promoting pedophilia for putting a character with that appearance (even if she is an adult), and who is available for dating.
So, a person annoyed by Nowi’s appearance created a mod that replaced his official appearance with a more adult one!

A mod called “No Moe Nowi” was published on the mod site Game Banana, in the description the person says: “I’m not the biggest fan of ‘Lol Girl* Over 1,000 years old’ as a design (especially when you can date her), so I edited Nowi’s appearance to make her look more adult”.
“It’s a simple edit, not a complete redesign, I just edited some things on paint.net” says the person who created the mod, see how Nowi looks with this mod in the game:
These were some of the reactions from people when the mod was published:
“thank you so much for doing this – seriously <3 i always felt uncomfortable looking at nowi design, – didn’t like her to a point that i wouldn’t put her on my team at times, like way much to just keep her in when i had no choice but to put her in :s- really am disgusted how the “entertainment” industry in japan has gone out of the way to normalize the sexualization of child characters to obviously minors.
so this is always nice and needed when it comes to ‘loli/shota’ characters in game being sexualized like this for an example.”
“I would love to see his CGI support S changed with Robin and his Model with this portrait, I already like this new design a lot.”
“i literally just made an account to like and comment on this mod because it’s awesome that you took the time out to do this. Nowi always made me uncomfortable in a game that romance as an integral. Thank you for making this because lolis honestly deserve to be erased.”
“Tastefully done I would say. Good job.
I am curious about one thing. Did you edit the portraits at base game resolution, or in HD? If you happened to have HD versions I’d be happy to integrate support into AAHD.”
“Yay! She doesn’t look like a literal child anymore and also she has actual clothes now! This is a really nice design by the way, great work!”
“Yay, now I can pair Nowi with characters other than Donnel or Ricken without feeling gross as hell!”
“FINALLY. Her old design never failed to weird me the fuck out, especially with how she dressed.”
The crusade against lol*s and shotas continues on the internet.
