Alot of shit I tend to notice in some forms of media is how comics and cartoons like to put the military,technological and even human factions as the bad guys which I down right hate sometimes forcing us to go though boring gurellia organizations of mutants or how humans are so weak and technological inept they cant fight the forces or aliens and lastly the worst contender in this. Squad of soldiers who gets sent into a base always gets wiped out by some random ass virus or monster EVEN THOUGH they were highly trained soldiers they couldnt fight this one new combatant all of a sudden.

Why do some people do this?

There was a DC miniseries I saw storytimed here a while back about a branch of the military specially trained to fight aliens, and then wound up getting involved with demon shit that ended in a battalion marching into a level of Hell and securing it as a strategic asset. Can't for the life of me remember what it was called though.

If you haven't checked out the All-Guardsman Party series of storytimes on /tg/, you're missing out.

Basically the greatest Rogue Trader campaign ever devised by human minds.

>Why do some people do this?

Why do they do what?

You're asking about what here? Narrative structure? A narrative structure is individual; you can make generalizations about multiple narratives, you can recognize certain commonalities between disparate narratives, but ultimately each narrative is unique. The choices made in the creation of that narrative may follow certain expectations, and may even be derivative of other works (in which case the responsibility of choice isn't borne by that work, but by the original), but they are still unique. Usually, "write what you know" holds, and things go a certain way because it's what would realistically happen, or what the audience expects to happen, and a sudden, shocking departure from the familiar would detract from the story rather than add to it.

To answer your specific points:

>Alot of shit I tend to notice in some forms of media is how comics and cartoons

This is just pure garbage. You don't even know what you're saying. You notice this in what, operas and talk radio? Then it's second-hand and not derived from primary experience, so you don't notice it directly. This isn't the board for discussing operas or talk radio. If you mean comics and cartoons say comics and cartoons, you fucking faggot.

> military,technological and even human factions as the bad guys

There's a lot that don't, but don't let that stop you being butthurt about it. I assume you mean sci-fi/fantasy? Because you didn't specify. Still, the number of military dictatorships, sanctioned massacres by uniformed forces, technocratic impositions on civil society for personal gain, and, you know, humans who want to kill each other/everything else in the real world is non-negligible, unless you live under a rock and haven't noticed. So that's why they do that: because it's credible.

>which I down right hate

Color me surprised.

> forcing us to go though boring gurellia organizations of mutants or how humans are so weak and technological inept they cant fight the forces or aliens

Really this is a completely separate argument you've tried to start here, and I'm not sure you understand that it is because you appear to be a retard of some kind. Guess what tho: humans are mortal. We're not gods. We frequently, in everyday life and in military operations, come up against our own frailty and limitations. Often this is the result of poor planning or delusional belief in our own superiority.

>EVEN THOUGH they were highly trained soldiers they couldnt fight this one new combatant all of a sudden

There's a lot of reasons that might happen. Threat-building - showing something to be very powerful so that even a dumbass can see it's a credible threat - through demonstrating the folly of arrogance or the reliance on tactics and weapons designed to fight other threats; hell, anybody who's served in a combat theater will tell you without good intel you are dogmeat. A new threat? You're probably dogmeat. You will take casualties.

Again, real world: look at how hard it is for real, highly-paid, highly-trained, heavily-armed and highly-mobile armies to fight insurgencies of drug farmers and people traffickers. If your argument had any merit, these insurgencies should be over in hours. The same applies with high-human cultures descending on inept aliens the galaxy over and beyond: just because we spent more and our spaceships look like spacedicks doesn't mean we're gonna win.

I dunno a lot of those "HUMAN BEINGS BREATHE ROCKET FUEL!!!" claims are pretty stupid because any form of life will need to use some volatile shit to produce enough energy to be active enough to create complex society and innovations.

But there was one really cool analysis I saw that explained that humans would most likely be a heavy-world species since Earth's size puts it right on the upper-end scale of gravitational pulls that would be possible to escape with conventional rocketry. Any bigger and escape velocity would be impossible to reach.

I can't find that screencap now though and it's driving me nuts.

There was some shitty fanfiction Warhammer 50k that had the Black Templar's and what ever humans left go on a constant crusade

only good part of it

I thought that was the one where humanity builds a fuck-off huge starship that encloses a star in a dyson sphere for power and gtfos of the galaxy for good.
>>
>>78877000

Humans being on top of their game makes many people's fantasies inadequate, because their fantasies are precisely an escape into a higher order of relevance than they can achieve in reality. People don't like thinking some guys with guns can be that good, after all, they're guys too and they're not so good.

Besides, when we actually do things right, it doesn't look as impressive as we wish it would. Even the actual pro-human stuff forgets how damn good we are at killing from afar rather than doing silly heroics, all our obscene artillery and ballistic rocketry and precision air power, it has never once seemed 'fair' or honorable, but i kinda like that we are not, because the one who's trying to win the hardest actually cares about what he's fighting for.

Mostly because of political reasons rather than the military itself. If you actually think that a highly organised armies can't outright destroy any petty threats like farmers and wannabe communists then I don't know what kind of history you're reading.
