So far, the breakout Dragon Quest XI character is Martina. She kicks arse, spawns hearts and is already inspiring fan art and cosplay.
Why is this character suddenly popular? It's more than Martina is simply attractive or sexy. Though, fans point out that she certainly isn't short of either!

"With this, I guess I'll have all my members? Martina sure is cool. I think I'll make her a starter."

"I started Dragon Quest XI from this morning, and the story has pulled me in. Martina is especially cute. While she's cool and has a strong sense of justice, she sometimes shows deep empathy for others and the motion of her sex appeal skills breaks all the rules. I like her."

It's no surprise that there is already Martina fan art and cosplay.
