The "Defend a character who gets a lot of hate" thread
« on: May 21, 2017, 01:02:40 am »
Ever have a character you like but everyone else hates, and you want to defend and justify them?

Or on the contrary, ever have a character you hate but everyone loves, and you want to expose their flaws?

This is the thread where you can do just that. Defend a character who gets hate, or bash a character that gets lots of love.

And I mean characters from fiction, don't bash the characters of anyone here. It's a bit rude.

1, 2, 3, go!

Lisanna was a character Fairy Tail desperately needed back. Although she isn't that big of a character, she's really well designed! And let's be honest, the only reason people hate her is because she can oppose NaLu :/

Gamzee Makara is a great character and all of the horrible things he did were the effects of mind control by Lord English

Olaf from Frozen was a great addition to the movie, everyone seems to be sick of him but I'm sure as heck not. He's not just some annoying cash-grabbing character, he's supposed to represent the love between Anna and Elsa. Everyone seems to look past all the symbolism in Frozen.

On the other hand, Komasan from Yo-kai Watch just isn't a character I like. Sure his design is cute and all, but his constant "Oh my swirls!" combined with how he talks just comes off as annoying and unnecessary.

Alois Trancy from Kuroshitsuji II. Yes, he's a bipolar sadist. Yes, he's overly-attached and overly-clingy to Claude. But he just wants to be LOVED. He lost everything when he was young, including his brother (who for a time was all he had left), which caused him to just go half-insane. He just wanted someone to love him and show him life was still worth living, which is why he acted the way he did most of the time. He didn't deserve to die in the slightest, no matter how annoying he could be at times. Ciel killed him because Sebastian lied to him and made him think Alois is the one who killed his parents (sorry Seb, but I hate you for that), and Claude finished him off because of his ridiculous obsession with trying to get Ciel. All Alois wanted and needed was someone that would be there for him after his life started out as a total nightmare. If he HAD to die, he deserved to die peacefully and painlessly after everything he's been through. But he didn't deserve to die at all, no matter how... messed up... he was at times.

I've been wanting to get that off my chest for a while now...

He's a Homestuck character who did a lot of bad things and gets a lot of shunning and flack from fans but I feel bad for Eridan Ampora, and I kinda want to forgive him.
Obviously the whole genocide, racism, and murder thing can't be excused but for everything else, I think a lot of teenagers were like Eridan at some point, especially if they were dealing with a mental illness of some sort. :/ Not to mention he seems to have a serious case of BPD, for real am I the only one who thinks that?

Anyways people say he shouldn't be forgiven because he never changed his behavior, but Vriska also was a bad person, then she died, and then she came back and actually felt sorry for what she's done. Even Vriska killed people, and she was actively manipulative and even more self-absorbed than Eridan, and people forgave her because she apologized and tried to better herself.
But the thing is that Eridan kinda just died. He wasn't brought back like Vriska was for a second chance, sooo....I guess you can't blame him for not changing when the opportunity was taken from him, plus if Vriska never came back people probably wouldn't have forgiven her either. But then again Eridan was the Prince Of Hope, who knows if he could've changed, even if that happened. But he also legit apologized to Fefetasprite as Erisolsprite for killing her, so. Idk it's vague.

Anyways I can't help but pity him.

Not Cronus though, Cronus actually was a narcisstic jerk and he wasn't going through any actual emotional pain, so he has no reason to be such a doink.


On the other hand, I really dislike Lapis Lazuli from Steven Universe but I think I already posted about that on an Unpopular Opinions post.

Tony Stark is deeply flawed but also trying his hardest and he deserves less hate in the fandom, especially from Bucky stans.

Fumu isn't that bad in the sub. She's pushy, but she's really got the heart of a true Star Warrior. She loves Kirby and she just wants the best for him, so lEAVE HER ALONE YOU LOT OF WOLFWRATHS
