Because it's a shitty archetype and anime already has enough of those.

>>153137388
They will experience a resurgence thanks to this lady.

Benten is the best one of the decade.

Nips don't like them, they like passive and submissive women. Just look at their porn, the women all just lie around and do nothing (it has something necrophilic, if you ask me).
>>
>>153137532
>submissive
Not entirely. A woman's strength is supposed to be subtle.

I don't really like them either. Most femme fatales are just boring, emotionally shallow empty shells.

The best kind of heartbreaker is one who wins people over by genuinely being a good person and friend. By being a seductress without trying or wanting to be. With femme fatales, the stakes aren't as high because there's no prize to begin with. Just a shell with a pretty face. You might as well date a mannequin.

that's completely not what a femme fatale is

Which part? First paragraph or second?
>>
>>153141679
second one is completely wrong

first one depends on the character and opinion

t. my shitty action movie trope is better than anything else because at least I'm not a pedo
>>
>>153137388
It's just not as popular as a reoccurring character anymore. I'm pretty sure they still tend to show up as side characters.

>>153137388
because modern anime are made by insecure virgins for other insecure virgins who feel threatened by a girl who is not as insecure as them in matters of love.

Is it, though? Whoever you're in love with is like a femme/homme fatale to you, because they're the one with control of your heart. A nice girl can technically cause more damage than a femme fatale if she accidentally steals and breaks more hearts than the latter does.
>>
>>153141833
the archetype of a femme fatale is not that

go read

>>153137450
That's a slut, not a femme fatale
>>
>>153141877
I know what a femme fatale is, I'm just saying that I've never found them that enticing despite the entire point of their character being that they're desirable.

Would she be a good example?
>>
>>153141949
Yeah, she's a definite example. Though it's questionable how modern Yu-Gi-Oh is since it started over 20 years ago.
>>
>>153141929
>despite the entire point of their character being that they're desirable.

Once again, that is wrong.
Them being desirable is just one of the points.
The main point of them is that they achieve their objectives through sexual allure, attraction, guile and overall subterfuge.

a woman that's hot and attracts men is not a femme fatale

Yeah, I know, even if my posts have been the opposite of clear on that.

she is more a tomboy.

there will never be another Faye.
>>
>>153137388
Because modern anime rises and falls with the fanatical otaku market. Normies may watch anime but they sure don't buy the figurines. And guess what? Femmes fatales don't sell a lot of figurines. Flat twintail tsundere imouto's on the other hand...
>>
Are there any modern examples of a female fatale? I love this archetype, they usually have good chemistry with the other characters.

They aren't exactly waifu material. The archetype suits a regular villainess so not many are going to stand out.
>>153137531
Agree with this.
>>153142572
Eh, she's free-spirited, which isn't a contradiction. Benten is still very beautiful and very dangerous.
>>
>>153137624
This and femme fatales make good use of this. There's a lot of appeal in female 'submissiveness' as people keep calling it.
>>
>>153144951
yes, but not very manipulative. Oyuki myabe fit better.
>>
>>153144145
Let me see, Bitch sensei from AssClass, Lust from FMA, that purple haired girl from Tokyo Ghoul, Michiko from Michiko to Hatchin, Fujiko Mine (watch The Woman Called Fujiko Mine), aaand I'd say Senjougahara or Black Hanekawa from Monogatari series. Those are all who comes to mind right now, it's a great archetype.
>>
>>153147222
ah, Midnight from Boku no Hero Academia sorta fills the archetype too.
