Legend of what

I think they knew what word they wanted to follow "The Legend of..." but were told they had to fantasy it up a bit so they added the "gre" in the middle, and also used the pinch tool several times on the ninja girl's torso    to make sure we unde

textless cover art for Grimm Fairy Tales: Wonderland #31 showing a blonde girl in a black mad hatter hat and black corset top with belt straps holding it across her chest and a red skirt made of ribbons fighting another girl, the mad hatter girl is possibly in a boobs and butt pose except she has no butt and is just apparently legs

The mythical boobs and no butt pose

Does it count as a boobs and butt pose if she has no butt?  And I don't mean she has a very small one, I think it might actually be missing. D:

Peace vs Chaos

*English teacher voice*

The dove-like white bird is a symbol of peace which is in contrast to her body, which is a symbol of chaos.

ad for Mega Goddess showing 7 pale skinned women in various bustiers and other fantasy clothes showing their breasts, they are holding weapons, on the far left is a blue haired girl in a white hood and white bikini top and a thong belt holding a knife and jumping away in a boobs and butt pose

ad for League of Pantheons that says "Welcome to League of Pantheons" with 2 anime girls in the foreground, one in a white dress with white hair standing up and arching her back forward, the other a girl with light blue hair and horns in a black backless dress standing in a side boob and butts pose with her back arched 90 degrees, and in the background is a blonde girl in a blue dress standing up with her back swayed backwards 90 degrees
