What does /a/ think of ace-type MCs?
>>
Ace-type? You mean super strong MCs?
They're the best kind of characters.

I think OP is referring to http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheAce when he means "ace-type".

The vibe I've gotten from /a/ overall is they usually don't like these characters much. They see them as flat, generic Marty Stus. In fact, it borders on hatred most of the time. Kirito is a great example of that. Just watch the upcoming reactions.

Cancerous newfag tripfag that complains on /qa/ when he gets told to fuck off and watch more than 3 anime before posting. In short, filter and move on.

They're great when they have an interesting or diverse secondary cast behind them that regularly gets a perspective focus to play off of that straightforward nature of the MC's abilities.

Terrible when focus and framing falls almost exclusively on the MC and his/her endeavors/conquests throughout the majority of a narrative.

Medaka Box was great, for instance, when it came to the characters who were influenced by Medaka and her actions, and not so much whenever it became about Medaka herself.

Better than a boring as fuck MC. My favorite MC is a secret ace type that can't do shit when he's around his friends/family/school and no one suspects that he does cool shit when he's not around them. Even better when he eventually reveals his powerlevel to everyone.

Tomoko is a girl. Ace girls are bitches.

Or knife-wielding alien psychos. One of the two.

They are mutually exclusive.

like the anon you are talking to, i just started watching SAO. So far I like it, not sure why all the hate. it's better than that other MMORPG anime... what's it name again?

>>137510598
Log Horizon or Phantom World?

I like them. When it's done right it's good (pic related)

I wouldn't like them all the time but it's important to have a variety of MCs, people have a variety of personalities after all. There are some people who are just good and know they're good.

I prefer it to cry baby no confidence MC's personally I can't relate to that at all and it can get quite aggravating when they don't let it up.

I still can't fucking tell if derp commander is baiting or unironically a cancerous piece of shit.

Either way why isn't he banned? Fucking hell mods.

Do you have to be able to relate to a character to like them?

Gary Stu's can be good if the narrative tension comes from 'how' they win rather than 'whether or not' they win. Eg Tokuchi Toua.

Nah that's not what I'm saying. I like a character I can relate more to somewhat now and then though.

I've seen too much cry baby "I can't do nuffin ;_;" MC anime lately and it's starting to grate on me a bit.

Really though I prefer some balance
