Is necessary for mecha to replicate all 5 digits of the human hand? Especially the little finger, I use my pinky for ear-sex, but what would giant robots use them for?

A more stable grip. What I don't get are the fools insisting that robots with hands all have fingers at varying lengths in the same way humans do. Literally for what purpose?

>>13736257
Like half your gripping strength comes from the pinkie and ring fingers.

>>13736317
As a product of our biology. There's no need for a robot hand to function the same.

What we should be doing is adding a second opposable thumb on the other side.

>>13736321
They're modeled after humans so...

If you want two thumbs look at Gundam AGE

For pinky promises, of course.

How else would your giant robot hero make a promise with a kid?

That's a thing in ZOE's Jehuty. Dunno if it's also in the other Orbital Frames, though. Probably?

Yeah, and human hands also can't rotate 360' constantly, but it's useful in a robot and exists in muh Gundam.

A humanoid form factor for giant robots is cool but they don't have to obey every restriction of human anatomy. Imagine how useful it would be to rotate your whole arm at the shoulder, or to bend your elbow backwards as easily as forwards?

No.

She did indeed have two thumbs on each hand.

The mechs in Break blade have the middle and ring finger merged into one bigger "finger", this make sense since it has enough finger to handle a weapon/do complicated finger things.

On the same topic you could ask why do giant guns have to have their grips tilted backwards slightly, our guns are like that because of the base part of our thumbs. Robot don't need those.

I practice Hema, Long Sword specifically, and I use my pinky A LOT to get more leverage and power, so sword fighting always comes to mind for me.

>the human race hasn't evolved into four-armed fighting machines able to maintain 2 6-fingered arms for social purposes and fooling competing races
>>
>>13736257
The fingers should just be more spaced out, then you could maybe do with one less. There's no reason to keep them to close together if they are strong enough.
>>
Sword fighting, especially the katana, utilizes the left pinky for driving the blade (the right hand is more of a guide). This is why the yakuza would cut left pinkies off of their dishonored, to make them unable to wield a sword properly again. Source: years of kendo

Doesn't work that way, anon. Firstly, that is a lion, not a tiger. Secondly, normal human hands are boring. Everyone knows that 3-digits is the coolest.

About as necessary as the mech having a face.

Lock On needed it to finish his fight... Because the firing mechanism in a beam hand gun still required it to pull a trigger for reasons.

Then again, most Gundam hand carried guns are that way too. For reasons of course.
