Why are archers always the most cool characters in fiction? and not only in anime, in movies and comics too, Legolas, Hawkeye, Bullseye, Rambo, Irvine from berserk, the glasses guy in bleach etc.

Archer is a girl's job, manly man's job is saber or berserker.
>>
>>124857013
Real men get the job done any way they have to, even if it means attacking from a distance because they're not as strong.

>>124857052
Shut up Kiritsugu, you're dead.
>>
>>124857013
No this fucking meme again. The strength required to draw an English longbow was enormous. Archers are some of the most strong and physically fit warriors of their time. 0/10 you lose.
>>
>>124857013
But archers can be effective a close range too, archer can keep lancer at bay with his two swords, Legolas had swords too and Hawkeye stabbed people at close range.
Bow is better because is safer and more strategic, but a good archer can get shit done at close range, while a lancer or saber can't do shit a long range.
Check-mate atheists.

>>124856002
>Rambo
nigger what
>>
>>124856002
I think it's because they're generally portrayed as cool and collected no matter what, which is both necessary for bow accuracy and a sort of natural outcome of being removed from immediate, short-range risk.

>uses swords

>>124857703
What is an archer supposed to do, give up and run away crying as soon as their enemy closes the distance?

Learn to read fagit, i'm not talking about strength, i'm talking about manly man charging in the battle, not playing safe and camping on a distance like a pussy.
>>
>>124858358
>A manly man has to be a brute made only to die like a bitch
So are you implying that Rambo was a faggot because he preferred ranged weapons instead of chargin with a knife like a retarded?
>>
>>124858440
>die like a bitch
See F/Z Rider, i don't think Gil is low enough to respect a bitch.

>WHEN CAESAR DIED
Which one?
>>
>>124858440
Well Rambo is a faggot, Vietnam won the war.

Archer is Shirou's plot armor given a human form
>>
>>124858537
But he still died, it was manly and awesome yeah, but that didn't helped to win the war.
Also rider had a magical horse as assistance, he wasn't on foot.
>>
>>124857451
Yes. Longbows took so much strength it deformed the archer's spine.
Archers are ugly fucks.

THEY'D BLAST EACH OTHER AWAY WITH SOUND

You forgot Homura, and no Madoka was never cool.
>>
>>124858771
Didn't watch madoka, but I tought she used guns
>>
>>124858673
And that's my point, an archer will never became as cool as saber or berserker because always play safe and a fucking spammer on that.
>>
>>124858833
Reread OP's post, autist.

This thread is pretty funny, it's like reading people discuss fighting games on GameFAQs or some other shitter forum.

Well HGW is literally a fighting game.

Charging and shouting isn't the only way to be manly and cool, being cold and collected is badass too, like when archer shoots an arrow at long distance and says some cool one-liner.
Manlyness can come in many ways and forms, like how Guts from berserk also has a bow attached to his arm.

Holy shit

>>124859074
Okay i'll admit maybe i'm being biased there because the most badass archer for me is Madoka and Godoka, that's why i said archer is more suitable as a girl's job.

Any archer can top that?
