While we in the USA were all celebrating the Fourth of July, Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to explain why one of the fighting game series' resident robot, Alisa Bosconovitch, has breast physics.
Short answer: "They serve as shock absorbers"
Her skeleton by Tungsten carbide & the outer skin armor consists of titanium & depleted uranium. But its surroundings are Artificial skin. https://t.co/AEdlvnITnJ— Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN) July 5, 2017

Alisa Bosconovitch first debuted in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion. Her appearance is based off of her creator's daughter, which as Kotaku points out, is very weird. I mean, is it weirder than the fact that she has robot fairy wings and kicks butt using the power of ballet? Probably.
Harada for his part is a known video game iconoclast who has a penchant for commenting on who his favorite anime waifu is so the fact that he's also willing to go publically about synthetic boobs as shock absorbers is probably the least shocking thing about this whole episode.
