female characters

This is a blue board which means that it's for everybody (Safe For Work content only). If you see any adult content, please report it.

So a lot of people have noticed and commented repeated over the years that /co/ hates pretty much all female characters in anything ever.

Here's a question for you, /co/.

Are there any female characters you like not for their appearance, but for the quality of writing applied to their characters and plot lines? Why do do like the writing for these characters? What did the writers do right, what did the creators do right?

As for the characters you hate (Mabel, ALL the female characters on arrow, all female characters in everything), why do you dislike the way the showrunners/creators/writers wrote for them, what did the writers do wrong, how did the writers/creators fuck up so badly?

Here's what I expect every post in this thread to be, so I'll get it out of the way:

- women are only good for sex
- women are just for breeding
- all women are evil
- jews niggers mudslimes kek c~u ck
- I only like three year old girls I can fantasize about raping

>female
>good
>like
>lol
>implying

- bitches bitches bitches waifu fuck rape kill rape kill waifu waifu
- I hate female characters because women are inferior also cavemen i hate femalez

But maybe one or two of you will give me a real answer. Probably not.

Genuinely not bait, although I expect all troll replies because this is 4chan.

Not expecting an answer but genuinely curious.

almost every female character in Scott pilgrim vs. the world
not just because they are hot which is part of the reason, but also because they make me genuinely feel emotion more than "My dick wants it". for example, i like Knives thing where shes a confused, heartbroken girl feeling vengeance because her dickhead boyfriend cheated on her, but she's still an adorable 17 year old kid looking for love. i could make more examples from this book, but i'm tired and i'm trying to watch every single episode of KND, so good luck with your experiment guy. hope you don't feel that way about everyone on 4chan!

You know, kid, it's Friday and I'm feeling generous. I really am. End of the work week and I patched some stuff up with my girlfriend, so I'll give this one a whirl. I really hope you take this reply to heart, because it's all you deserve. Here it goes.

>So a lot of people have noticed and commented repeated over the years that /co/ hates pretty much all female characters in anything ever.
This was your first fault, and honestly a really effective bait. Not only did you group the entire userbase of /co/ into one projection, but you did it on a trendy subject. This is false.

>Are there any female characters you like not for their appearance, but for the quality of writing applied to their characters and plot lines? (...)
You're really asking a lot of questions here. This is like an interview and you're really not going to get a lot of replies. Nobody has the time to read all this. But I'll give my answer: I like lots of female characters and I identify more with them. In recent comics, the cast of Paper Girls are fun to follow (their appearance is normal-looking 80s pre-teen girls). I'm reading TDKR right now and Robin is really great. I found the women of Y The Last Man to be strong characters, and they weren't stereotyped because 90% of the characters in that series were women. So you really got to enjoy their human aspects.

>As for the characters you hate (Mabel, ALL the female characters on arrow...)(...)
Stop projecting. I, like many, am neutral to these characters. I'm not going to answer this question because I am unqualified to.

>Here's what I expect every post in this thread to be, so I'll get it out of the way:
This entire "list" throws your thread into the crapper. It was entirely needless and shows your bias against the board. It's so absurdly unnecessary that I'd be surprised if anyone else bothered to give you an actual reply, because you did not put the amount of quality into your thread that you're expecting from the replies.

No, I don't feel that way about everyone on 4chan by a long shot, I've just noticed over the years that discussions about writing for female characters tend to be quickly dominated by the kinds of posts I mentioned so I thought I'd just throw it all out there to get it over with. I'm a very oldfag (from SA's ADTRW days) and it's been getting boring lately, as anything does. Thanks again.

I feel like you've never been on /co/, honestly. Yes, /co/ usually has more issues with female characters than male ones but it has nothing to do with the things you posted. Like, I barely ever see any of that shit on here. The problems /co/ usually has with female characters is that they are written poorly and given advantages/plot armor over male characters just by virtue of them being a female character. /co/ has far more issue with writers than the characters.

TL;DR OP was borne from years of reading stale memes, I understand if it doesn't get replies. I was here at the beginning and it's not a "trendy" topic but it has gotten a lot worse over time, to the point that it seemed an exponential upward slope before leveling off a bit more recently.

I'll grant you that other boards are much worse, especially /tv/. Actually, female characters from tv shows seem to get the most hate here, too. Just curious.

Off the top of my head, Modesty Blaise, Halo Jones, Kate Spencer, Lady Shiva (under Denny O'Neil), Judge Anderson, Judge Hershey, Jennifer Blood, Ms. Tree and Renee Montoya.
Overall, I like that they're characters with a strong degree of agency within their stories, with motivations and goals and personalities that go beyond what's necessary for the story. They're not plot props or shallow love interests, but characters in their own right. Even when they're not the protagonist, they retain enough individuality to be something more than a talking head. And when they are main characters, they're allowed to struggle, develop, evolve, grow and change with time. They're well-written, three-dimensional and compelling in their own ways, and none of those ways feel gimmicky or cheap.

The main problem are 1) male comic writers who have a warped perception of women from a lifetime of being autists and basically just end up writing their sex fantasies and 2) SJWs trying to make female characters unrealistically perfect or as some cringe worthy mouth piece for their politics.

This happens less with male characters since there's less cultural junk floating around about masculinity.

I know this may sound odd, but posting on this and sites like it occasionally for about a decade and a half has actually led me to not get seriously riled by anything online anymore. I feign a bit of irritation for fun or to vent once in a rare while (as I did in the OP) but after a couple of years of, well, you know the kinds of replies you're likely to get here (and I've been to places where it's actually worse), it never seriously upsets me anymore. It's all just good fun. If an OP or post of mine doesn't work out, no big deal.

In a way, I think it could be beneficial for a lot of people as it's helped me develop a thicker skin.

4chan in general does everything via hyperbole, over compensation and kneejerk reactions. Feminism and diversity have been being pushed really hard in video games and comics/cartoons in the last 5 years or so and this is essentially a backlash of childish proportions. While I don't like the push either, I'm not having kneejerk reactions and judging every female and/or minority character with 10x scrutiny as I do white male characters.

I try to judge based on the character as a character and not as a demographic.

As to a female character I think most of /co/ likes in ways other than "She's hot, I want to fuck her," (which is, I think Impossible to find a female character /co/ DOESN'T want to fuck) I would say Kim Possible.

Kim is a badass in terms of fighting and saving the day, but socially with people her own age, she's just a high school girl. She has a rival she sometimes loses out to: Bonnie. She gets nervous and tongue tied around someone she's crushing on, and she gets embarrassed just like any other high school girl.

Kim wasn't written perfect or always able to cope, or always right even when she's not right. She's well rounded.

There isn't less cultural junk about masculinity so much as the stuff that's there allows for more creative freedoms. You can make a guy an asshole or a monster or expendable and no one is going to bat an eye. Additionally a male character has to earn audience sympathy, which means the writers NEED to put more effort in.

Okay, just off the top of my head, the ones I can think off:

Elaine Benes from Seinfeld, because she's every bit as flawed and petty and prone to self-sabotage as the the other three, and the writing doesn't shy from shitting on her.

Akemi Homura from PMMM, because she in the end goes flat-out insane - not the typical, giggly cartoonish "insane", but genuinely and disturbingly deranged.

Yarizui Sen from Ben-To, because I think she's an all around cool, disciplined girl dedicated to fighting and victory, yet doesn't refrain from expressing her concern for her friends. Most people like/prefer Shaga, but Sen's seriousness and dedication topple her imho.

Endou Kanna from 20th Century Boys, because of the drama of her character. I... cannot say more because the story has too many twists to talk about it without spoilers.

Ah, I thought of a /co/-related one. Scar from GLTAS. She's ruthless, has great lines and her actions, both in the past as in the present, drive much of the plot for season 2.

And finally, Lady Aethelflaed, a real-life person, because of her deeds as the monarch of Mercia during the Danish invasion of England.

It's because female characters are usually poorly handled. their either preachy over the top naggers, sex fiends, bull dykes, or soft spoken and nice to the point they add absolutely nothing to the show.

If people wrote actual characters instead of writing one dimensional 'feminist' inspired bullshit characters or fap fuel and waifus.

>You can make a guy an asshole or a monster or expendable and no one is going to bat an eye.

I enjoy flawed characters, and have been confused sometimes when female anti-heroes seem to get a lot of flack while male anti-heroes are more positively received. When I first started discussing shows online, there were a lot of complaints about too perfect, Mary Sue female characters. I'm happy now to see a greater variety of female character who have the same kinds of flaws and plot arcs male characters have (including being monsters), but have always been confused by the double standard, as this kind of think is what fan communities said they wanted in the late 90s.

This is Lina Inverse

Lina Inverse is the hero of the show Slayers

Lina is brash, selfish, greedy, and cowardly

Lina leans towards good but does plenty of bad

Lina is the victim of slapstick humor and the butt of many jokes

Lina's friends give her shit just as often as she gives them shit

If Lina fucks up the narrative won't blame someone else, the narrative will blame Lina

You mentioned Mabel, so let's talk about Mabel.

Mabel fucks up all the time but hardly has to own up to it, it's her brother, Dipper, that has to sacrifice

In the Legend of Korra Korra is a massive fuck up but everything she does works out for the better. Korra's mentor Tenzin sings her praise at the end of each season

Finally, in the new Thor comic series with a female Thor, the villain(ess) lets Thor go because she "respects her for being a woman."

The problem with female characters in comics and cartoons is that the writers use kid gloves with them.

Viewers don't like double standards, and they don't like characters who automatically win. The number one rule of story telling Pixar has is "We admire a character more for trying than succeeding."

If female characters don't have to try, why the fuck would anyone like them?
>>
>>78110985
One of the reasons you see pushback against female anti-heroes is because there's so few female villains to begin with that every time one of them pulls a heel-face turn you really feel that loss. And it's always done along the same lines. They're given a Freudian excuse as to why it's not really their fault that they were evil in the first place, true love has redeemed them, and it's probably some guy's fault because dudes are the result of all evil (Aka Wicked syndrome).

Look around here. We get dozens of threads on "Why doesn't Batman just kill the Joker?". When was the last time you saw a "Why doesn't Batman just kill Poison Ivy" or "Why doesn't Batman just kill Harley Quinn"? The latter is especially infuriating because rather than actually use their most popular villainess as a villain DC is now dead set on making her their wacky Deadpool anti-but-not-really hero.

As to your second point, you get a lot of accusations about female characters being Mary Sues from people that don't really understand what the term means because, quite frankly, female characters tend to face consequences for their actions on far fewer occasions and with much less severity than their male counterparts, due to cultural norms and writer biases. For example, the Simpsons writers once toyed around with the idea of doing a gag where Homer strangles Lisa and quickly decided that was no good. Bart though? He gets choked out by his 300 pound dad every other week and no one bats an eye. Hell, it's fun for the whole family.

Adding to this, it's NOT a coincidence that people sing the praises of the books where she gets her shit wrecked (1, 3) far more frequently compared to the ones where she gets handed wins (2, kind of 4).

And nobody likes a karma Houdini regardless of gender.

Yeah catwoman we cut miles of slack to, but she seemed to have a good heart
poison ivy, i felt, we were ALWAYS supposed to hate. The writers shat on her exactly as hard as they should, they never held back because she was a woman.. they made it clear straightaway she was an inhuman monster and we should want her dead.

Roundabout the dawn of the new 52 I remember seeing people on the Escapist complaining that DC had ruined Harley and that she was supposed to be a strong female role model. That's pretty much when I gave up on the character.

Because if people are insisting that the only character that can beat out Janet Van Dyne as the poster child for relationship abuse is any kind of a role model then it's pretty obvious that we're not going to get a decently written female character ever because they're always going to have to be role models.

And Ivy is well on the path to heroism simply because she's BFFs with Harley.

Flaws without consequences aren't flaws. At best they're quirks. And quirks can get obnoxious really easily.

>>78111396
Korra isn't even an anti-hero, which just further proves how big a mess she is.
>>
>>78111396
Korra's problem isn't her flaws. It's everyone's reactions to her flaws and the fact that her flaws define her more than her positive traits. Korra is a muscle head, she screws up a lot but rarely faces any serious consequences (season 3/4 being an exception which probably says alot as to why season 3/4 were so much better than season 1/2.) For 2 seasons, Korra makes dumb decisions, fails, sits down and cries about it, then stuff gets fixed usually without her doing anything and she gets patted on the back.
>>
>>78110647
I think this hits on a very important point. Most of the best writers (art is an entirely different conversation) don't set out to be comic book writers (it's true, you know this). So the ones that do usually fall into one of the two categories mentioned in this post. If the industry could attract more - for lack of a better term - normal writers the characterization of females may be handled better. Again, these are blanket statements and there are always exceptions, but just look at the people writing these things. There's a chance things will change in the future if comics become more accepted as a respected medium through exposure from film/tv crossover.

This isn't even a matter of archetypes though.
Like, it's probably plebian as hell but one of my favorite book series is The Dresden Files. It's about a private eye wizard, and it does have a fair number of female characters that are pretty awesome, but Harry himself? Harry gets his shit wrecked every book. He gets beaten, bruised, exhausted. He got a hand fucked up so bad by fire that it looked like ground sausage meet for a book or two.
Look at a movie like Die Hard. John McClaine gets put through a meat thresher every movie and we cheer him on through it.
The worst thing to happen to Korra is at the end of book 3 where she gets paralyzed. Her predecessor Aang though? It tends to get overlooked, but Aang *literally died*.

People like characters that overcome suffering. One of the tenents of writing is to kill your darlings for a reason. But female characters always get their suffering and flaws under much harsher scrutiny because then you're glorifying violence against women or saying all women are evil because you wrote one vileness.

tl'dr, find that galbrush threepwood copypasta. A greater variety of archetypes exists for men because it doesn't offend sensibilities when those archetypes are negative in some way.

I wasn't talking about flaws without consequences.

Both SJWs and the backlash are a bit of a shame, I honestly found 4chan more fun in its early days (not zero politics but fewer, people seemed less uptight than they are today, we made fun of people who gave a shit about anything, for better or worse), but I'm just an old man shaking his cane in that respect.

>Look at Jessica Jones. She's deeply flawed and suffers tremendous consequences for those flaws, but /co/'s reaction is to hate her for her flaws.

This reaction is odd. I feel like the show doesn't present her as a hero or a good person at all, that she's constantly called out/criticized, and that she suffers tremendous consequences for her flaws (actually, I feel she gets far worse than she deserves - she's basically just an alcoholic jerk, but she's really put through the winner and doesn't even really come out on top).

It's not so much an attractiveness thing as it is a personality thing.

/co/ likes female characters that they would like as a gf. Pleasant and amusing. They don't like female characters that are boringly nice (which is good), but also don't like female characters who are the slightest bit abrasive (which is dumb).
>>
>>78112389
>/co/ likes female characters that they would like as a gf.
First off, no. Don't start this "/co/ all thinks one thing" shit.

Second, it's absolutely a matter of physical attractiveness causing this shit to be disregarded outside of /co/,

For example, there's this one fun, down to earth female superhero that has a fortune 500 company that, in a rarity for comic book universes, actually tries to make use of all that alien technology and time travel shit to improve the lives of the common man I thought that was a pretty great concept and the character was approachable and the tone of the book was great. It mixed action and comedy in a really satisfying way that was enjoyable to read.

But none of that matters because Power Girl has huge boobs and a cleavage window, so the only reason anyone would ever be reading her book was for the fanservice and all she can ever be is a sex symbol.


Another example. One of my favorite video game characters has a really dark, tragic backstory. She's a child of rape, right? So she gets treated as a pariah by her community and in order to find a place and get some positive attention, she joins up with this crew and gets a new father figure out of the deal. But then her half sister (the village darling coincidentally so you know there's some bad blood and rivalry there) turns on the community, and this character gets tasked with taking her down. In the process, that father figure that gave her a place gets brainwashed, and she has to then kill him. Her life is one big trainwreck after another and she just keeps soldiering through it.

But Ayane can't possibly be a good female character, because again, "Just look at her! She's clearly just there to be a masturbatory aid".

I think the problem stems from the fact that whenever /co/, or at least a decent amount of people on /co/, does like something it almost immediately gets trivialized as only being liked because they're attractive, and whenever something is disliked, it's almost immediately trivialized as people don't find them attractive enough.
Like how Squirrel Girl used to be fairly liked here but now, with Unbeatable, threads almost always boil down to how you've got people going "Oh, you just don't like it because you can't fap to her", or "you only liked her before, because you could".
I mean, waifufaggotry is annoying, but even with that there's more to it than just "I want to put my penis in her".

For being based off a game with so few female characters - and being set around the 50s/60s - the TF2 comics do a really great job with their women.

The Administrator's unsettling nature and constant frustration with the characters make her a fun villain. Watching her schemes play out is cool, and she has enough focus to make her still hold an air of mystery. Miss Pauling manages to be involved in a romantic storyline without it changing her character or goals too much. Even if she's obviously got more social savvy than the mercs in the cast, she makes her share of mistakes, and sometimes comes across as mentally off-kilter. And more recently, Zhanna's just as amusingly violent and dim as the Soldier, and proves a competent ally without winning all their battles.

While some female characters feel completely useless, or so useful that they make other cast members redundant, these ones feel more like they're balancing the team out and filling gaps. There's enough variety in them, they bring their own brand of craziness to the story that matches the males without overshadowing them, and share failures and successes with their Y-chromosome-bearing equivalents. The gap in abilities due to the males all being deadly mercenaries is accounted for, but not limiting for them - they have their own areas of expertise.

I will admit, though, it may be waifuism speaking for one or two of them.

I read a great post ages ago and can't find the screenie I took for it.

It made a point that Mad Max: Fury Road had a character literally described as "Something The Fragile." But they could get away with it because the film had a truck full of women that weren't fragile. If "Fragile" was the only woman in the film, it'd be taken as some sort of statement that "All women are Fragile," which is why any "token" characters are all bland and safe. To overcome this, we need more token characters to balance out the equation - that way token characters can stop becoming "token" and become fuller characters int heir own right. Ideally. It ain't worked for Whor yet, but maybe one day...
>>
>>78113100
You create the character and their gender should be secondary except where it applies to the story. Good characterization

Sadly most writers create the "gender" then the character afterwards when they are female. That's more the problem; that writers are closed minded or contrived in their approach.

Male characters tend to be the default; they should not be.

Cliche is bad. Jessica Jones is a rape victim who punches people and has issues with men because of rape.

There's very little humor to her, and she's not exactly clever. She messes up repeatably and her moment of triumph is killing the main guy by becoming immune to his powers.

She has very little agency. There's not much to like about her, which is fine, but there's also not much to find interesting because she's the cliched rape victim archetype
>>
>>78113606
>Chiche is bad
No, it's just means it's been done a lot.

>Jessica Jones is a rape victim who punches people and has issues with men because of rape.
Jessica doesn't show any issues with men in particular; Her reaction to the event is just pushing people in general away so that they don't get caught up in her problems.

>There's very little humor to her, and she's not exactly clever.
And? Neither of those are necessary for a good character.

>She has very little agency.
But she has complete agency throughout the entire show; the only time she doesn't is in Flashbacks.

>She messes up repeatably
Yes.

>her moment of triumph is killing the main guy by becoming immune to his powers
Did you watch the same show? Because she found out she was immune with still a third of the series left, and it took tracking him down, tricking him multiple times, and fighting Luke Cage to actually get to him.

>she's the cliched rape victim archetype
You can argue that she's not interesting, but her character is not the traditional rape victim. It's closer to the stock noir protagonist than anything.

>Alright, tell me why Jessica Jones is a good/interesting character.

She's a fuck up and awful cunt. Which makes her lovable. They don't give her a pass and generally makes her one big walking flaw.

To the point where it's relatable.
>>
>>78113857
>Because I just see a cliche with plot armor who punches things


Eh, she really isn't though. She got her shit wrecked most of the film. Not only that, but you typically don't see this level of fuck up in a female character. She's a depressing cunt slut who fucks out of control to cover up how awful she is.

It's a new spin to the typical female role. I'm not saying it deserves a fucking oscar or anything, but it is interesting to see.
>>
Making female characters Mary Sues actualy sets female characters back; male characters are not written as male, because their gender is the default choice.

In most cases a female character is (often added) to a story as "the female character"/"the woman" etc, not as a solid character who exists in their own right.
>>
>>78113914
They totally give her a pass. She beats the bad guy because of an immunity she didn't have to work for.

There's this notion in a lot of wanna be writers mind that flawed = good character. While flaws help, it also helps to create a memorable character.

Jessica Jones is not memorable. She's a cliche. She's about one step away from starring in a Resident Evil Movie.

>>78114016

She has the immunity because she suffered for it. She wouldn't be immune if not for the trauma of being his victim. While I agree that the overall idea of making her immune to Killgrave is a weak narrative choice, it is tied to her overall character development and empowers her as a protagonist in a way that I'm sure many found quite satisfying.
>>
>>78114133
And many did not.

Let me remind you how this discussion got started. Some anon, might have been you, said /co/ was sexist because they didn't like Jessica Jones

That's a bullshit argument. I think this discussion has proven there are many valid reasons to not be a fan of Jessica Jones, and that it doesn't make you a sexist.

>>78114016

But she did have to work for that immunity. So much so that she killed someone and was raped, things that morally conflicted with her.

>There's this notion in a lot of wanna be writers mind that flawed = good character. While flaws help, it also helps to create a memorable character.

Which is reasonable, i wasn't saying she was good character because she was flaw, it just made her easier to bear with. It gave you some time of interest in seeing how this flaw is nurtured through the series. I liked how it played out.

>Jessica Jones is not memorable. She's a cliche.

Neither are any other heroes other than Ironman, Batman, Spiderman and Supes. You don't remember a distinct personality in Daredevil, Blade, Thor, or Black Window, because they're usually cliche'd, however the world around them is interesting and their abilities usually pick up the slack.

This was another case of that. Though her abilities weren't a highlight, it was the main antagonist's abilities that played in her general progression and kept it interesting.

>She's a cliche. She's about one step away from starring in a Resident Evil Movie.

She's a good cliche. A cliche of that old noir characters. A person with a horrible past pushing loved ones away with drinking problems. The only spin is she's a female, which makes it a new take, but not really. She was interesting.
>>
>>78114097
That applies to males too.
In real life people are naturally selfish, this reflects reality making a character more interesting.
>>
>>78109642
She's a very complex character. She's introduced as uptight and a know-it-all but as the series goes on it humanizes her and shows how she got the way she is. She's from the bottom class of her society and was raised as a servant, which explains the neurotic cleanliness and grace. Despite her low status, she falls in love with someone from the highest class who loves her back and makes her feel special. The love approaches on being in love with the status more than the person, however, she eventually is able to give up the status advantage when her lover rebels against their society. Her lover dies and she is stuck taking care of her lover's child from another relationship, of which she is bitter about. Eventually she sees her past love in the child and cares for him, although she still resents the other parent.
>>
>>78114173

Actually, this discussion was about whether Jessica's characterization was good or interesting, an aesthetic and literary judgement which is impacted only minimally by the show's reputation on /co/. Plus only a hyperdefensive sperg would think "you don't like this show because you're a sexist" is a conversation worth having.

Flawed characters can be just as boring as wholesome christian characters.

It's all about execution. Aaron Burr in Lin Manuel's "Hamilton the Musical" is an amazing flawed character. He is a man who openly admits he is after power, yet due to his circumstances we grow to symphasize with him.

Jessica Jones is just another noir cliche.

While I love her design, what makes me like her is how relatable I find her. She gets her shit kicked a lot but just keeps on going with her life, sometimes it hardly phases her.

Only the neckbeards in Japan give a fuck about the comics over there, while the entire culture of the US has have comics ingrained in it. So it was only sooner or later we'd have a group out of the majority crying about something.

Female characters who are GREAT fucking characters:

Homura Akemi from Madoka Magica. There's a reason everyone still debates her character, "Homura Did Everything Wrong vs. Nothing Wrong," everyone is torn about her character, even today: she is a Walter White-tier character. She is absolutely fascinating, and people are torn about her character for a reason. Reasonable people can disagree/agree with her because she is so fucking complex; despicable and heroic, relatable and terrible at the same time.

Helga Pataki from Hey Arnold. Again, she made such a strong fucking impression for a reason.

Pearl from Steven Universe. No, I'm not always sure that I like her. A lot of the time, I fucking hate her guts, so very much; she's fucking awful. This is because she feels like a REAL FUCKING PERSON and is one of the very few /co/ related characters who does. We dislike her, in part, because she reminds us of US. Thirsty, autistic, salty, neurotic as all hell. She is fucking brilliant, in terms of writing, whatever you think of her. Peridot is getting here, too.

Azula and Toph from Avatar. Great characters, gender has little bearing, popular for a reason, fucked up.

Very Tentative: Jessica Jones. One of the first great American anti-heroes, as countless reviews have attested. Not presented as a good person, she is petty and angry, awful; but human. Same as Kilgrave! SJWs aside: she and Kilgrave are a great match: unable to love others or interact with other humans in a normal way, in part due to their "gifts."

Fucking choke on that, feminism, SJWs, etc. That's why people ship them, they are cut from the same cloth. It's true, fuckers; it's true.

As a guy, I think it's just generally hard to try to completely separate looks from the equation only because so many female characters are tailored for that audience.

But there are many female characters that come from just really well-written books that people like. Many female characters from Morrison's books aren't conventionally attractive and can be interesting and even the normal looking ones like Zatanna are relatively engaging.

I genuinely like Vision's wife as a character right now and she's not the least bit attractive to me as well.

I usually really like female characters in the hands of good writers actually.

Some examples of female characters I like due to their competence and/or get-shit-done style: Esmaralda, Numbuh 5, Garnet.

Some I like due to their empathy or sweetness: Muriel Bagge, Belle, Leafie, many mom characters in less comedic works

Some I like due to being charmingly silly, eccentric, or adventurous, and maybe wouldn't work as well for males: Katilda (Catscratch), Lilo,Jade, Roxy

In my case, I find Carrie is a standout example in my heart. In fact, I used to dislike her a lot for many reason, or at least feel neutral to her because she is the OPPOSITE of the character I used to like (characters that are outwardly nice and friendly). However, as the series goes on, I find her memorable such as she is supportive of Gumball and cares for him in many occasions (although the series does not really like continuities and mostly one shots). Also, she changes from one of my least favorite to favorite and even replacing Penny (the nice girl type I used to like) during the process.

That is some big change in me.

She's honestly a real person who fucks up the way real people do, and is NOT presented as being awesome or a role model. That's why Jessica Jones was so well received with the critics. Like all of us, she is supremely fucked up and the show doesn't pretend she isn't.

I get your metaphor, but I can't see myself liking any western female. They either fall into one of two categories. The "princess who needs to be saved" or the "independent black woman who don't need no man". Anime characters have much more than that. There are more bonds in Japanese media than there are in Western media.

I mean i'll be the minority opinion but I think he's wrong on that one. There is a clear gender dynamic that exists, whether or not people want to acknowledge it. It's not like everyone in the world genuinely thinks women and men are the same type of people, even people who aren't sexist in the slightest.

Not only physiological but massive social differences created by various stigma and social structure just make guys and girls way different. Same with everyone who always goes on about how if you drop even one line about being gay or black, then you're a shitty gay or black character. It's a part of their character as much as anything else.

Being a guy is also a part of male characters and it's brought up more times than people think.

>They either fall into one of two categories. The "princess who needs to be saved" or the "independent black woman who don't need no man".

On average female character type:

>Cutesy girl with irrational love for the main protagonist and see on screen doing cutesy shit
>Shy cute girl with strong infatuation with main character to the point where the main character is the center of her universe and nothing more
>Useless female character the reader is suppose to feel for because the main character has a deep un-professed love for her. Her only point in being in the story is for the MC to confess his love to her and the reader can self insert himself in the mc's shoes.

See, this is a trick question because I don't have to LIKE characters in order to appreciate the thought put into them.
I don't like Monet St. Croix's attitude but from Lobdell to PAD, everyone made a perfectly reasonable explanation to her behavior. Lorna is self-destructive and quite possible mentally ill. Layla Miller is a secretive sociopath. Siryn is an immature, selfish person who'd ignore her own father's death rather than face her problems.
For example, in the same book I couldn't appreciate Rahne to the same extent. Most of the time, she was an all-around great person and the writer even managed to avoid making her smug and holier-than-thou but her conflicts just weren't as interesting. I liked Rahne but I wasn't very interested in her.
I didn't "like" any of the other characters but that doesn't mean they don't have complex personalities who were developed over the course of a single run more than most characters were and will evolve over decades. I appreciate that and I would prefer these characters under this writer over most "likable" or "relatable" characters under someone else.

No, no. I do read western comics. However, I don't read them all that often anymore. I think the last western comic I read was Seconds. It was actually pretty good, if you ask me. It's just that I can't get behind Marvel/DC anymore. All my favorite characters are getting changed around for the worst. Nick Fury didn't have to become black. He just didn't have to become black.

>Your horrible average anime character description
You basically only picked harems and you didn't even list all the qualities of a harem girl. Come on, man. That's pathetic. Magical Girl Sayaka-chan is none of those things.

I really love Korras concept, i think she's probably my favorite female character out of the avatar franchise, and desu i like all the female character in avatar to some degree.

My main problem with Korra though is that i don't think she is that well written because a lot of the time the concept of Korra and the Korra we see on screen don't mesh very well. Also as others have said it feel like she gets a lot of leeway for things she shouldn't have.
I also think the writing has a problem because she feels very inconsistently portrayed to me. She is supposed to be a great fighter, a smart and caring person etc. but at some points in the story she has some of those traits, and at other she doesn't.

For instance she is supposed to be compassionate throughout the series, and to some extent we see this, but then at the end they imply that she wasn't and had to learn compassion. It just feels weird.

>>78115615
Those are just harems though. Pic related is a portion of the animes i've watched. Out of all these I can only think of a few where the females were useful and not just some end all goal for the main protagonist to suckle on. This isn't bad, but rarely does anime ever leave these character dimensions. I acknowledged it had been done before, but not as much as it could be. Which is where I return to something I said earlier, both have shitty cliches. You just prefer a certain type of shitty cliche.

Some asshole from /lit/ might tell you he prefers a certain type of character over the other, but this is his preference. To say that this form of shitty writing is vastly superior to this form of shitty writing is asinine.

She never learns, she never grows, oh but she'll SAY she's grown, Tenzin will give a SPEECH on how she's grown, but Korra starts the series as a bumbling retard who lucks her way out of fights and she ends it as a bumbling retard who lucks her way of fights.

The fact that she kills Rando in a fit of anger seems tragic enough for me. Plus having mutant Brad around until the end is all kinds of dark IMO. It's most certainly not Brad anymore and yet it's all Buddy has left at the end besides memories of Rando and her baby.

Mutant Brad at that point is essentially a dog, he cares for her, protects her and probably offers comfort with his presence, but it's not her dad anymore.

Honestly, even without her lesbian undertones, Pearl is a great example of the paradox of love machines.

Would you call it love if a robot is programmed to function by serving a master?
To the robot, it's getting a positive feedback loop when it makes the master happy. That's basically the same thing as love, is it not?

That is pretty sad as well. I also think Buddy's development might have gone into a better way if she learns the tragic story of Lisa unfold, like Buzzo tells Buddy what happened, and he tells why Buddy is such a "redemption" to Brad, Buzzo, and even Rando in so many ways.

And that is the ironic part too. The team really wants to ship Gumball and Penny together, but the problem is that many fans just like Penny's design, not her character. Heck, in term of character in depth, Carrie also has an origin episode that is surprisingly deep, possibly the deepest in the series by far if establish correctly.

Iris on The Flash.

She is supposed to be Barry's ultimate love interest, and it's really the sole reason she has any screen time, and if not for the whole destiny thing of the two of them getting together she really wouldn't be liked by anyone.

She's pushy, irrational, flies off the handle, brings nothing to the table yet acts like she's important and deserving to be included in everything.

We were supposed to like her, we are supposed to want to see Barry get with her because he loves her.

But we don't, because they have shown no redeeming qualities to her. Every other potential love interest for Barry has been far more interesting and likable than Iris.

Heck, the only reason she even got her job was because Barry spoon fed her flash exclusives.

If she left the show tomorrow there wouldn't be any repercussions.
>>
>>78116700
Iris was absolute shit in the first season but she's been surprisingly alright so far in the second.

But with that said, she works a hell of a lot better as Barry's friend than as a love interest.

All she's done in the second season is stand there and be involved with the worthless family drama deal leading to wally entering the show.

Barry has a lot of friends, each of whom actually contribute to the stories. Iris is still the odd one out whose only contribution is literally standing there and looking pretty. It's fucked up.
>>
>>78116700
The only thing Iris can really offer Barry is emotional support, and so far Joe, his bio-dad, and Wells (both eobard and earth 2), and kaitlin (sp?) have actually done better jobs of that than she has,

Is Iris redeemable at this point? They've defined her pretty heavily this way already. I'm not sure what she could do to be more likable at this point that would fit in with the rest of the show.

Teen Titans go has the worst example of this I've ever seen.

They do the girls vs boys thing, and they repeatedly claim that girls are mentally and physically superior to boys in every way possible.

Girls are stronger than boys.

Girls are faster than boys.

Girls are smarter than boys.

On and on.

The episode ends with the boys monologueing about how grateful they should be just to be allowed in the presence of the girls.

If the genders were reversed in that episode the show would have been blown off the air.

It's true I haven't watched Anime in years, the last thing I watched (and made me lose interest) was Naruto. The best anime I've ever seen was probably Rurouni Kenshin, though the Manga was infinitely better. I never cared for Toonami and Cowboy Bebop, while good wasn't my favorite. I lost interest in anime because I started noticing all the cliches all over the place. Nothing felt original. I tried several times with various anime to start watching again, but all I hear about from friends who still like it is recs for stuff that ends up being Moe or rec to finish watching Naruto. I tried Kill la Kill, sword art online, attack on Titan but It's still the same damned cliches.

Additionally, The moeshit argument is a valid one since Anime producers themselves have admitted that the industry is driven by the consumers and the consumers mainly want stories about cute little girls. Now, if you'd made the argument that those Moe anime actually DO have well rounded female characters then I wouldn't really be able to argue since I haven't been able to stand any of them for more than a couple of episodes. Though I think it's pretty safe to assume most if not all the females in moe anime are basically the same girl with a different make over.

It's been brought up before, but any female character who's not waifubait gets massive hate on here. Perfect Mary Sues rightfully get shat on, but any flawed female characters get shat on for their flaws.

I agree, it's more like 4chan is usually high school and college boys who are too focused on women and obsessed with women because of hormones, but /co/ is kind of an outlier. That said there are people baiting/memeing here and that's what you see with the minority hatred.

no they werent.
it started out with her being a lolcow and making a bunch of "5 guys jokes" and some people decided thats the same as a "hate campaign"

thats all a precursor to gamergate anyways.
theres still never been any valid reason to believe gamergate ever had a goal of running women from gaming.

I think there are those on /co/ who judge female characters by a much harsher set of standards than male characters, and hold mistakes against said characters with more stubbornness than male characters.

To be fair, Korra wasn't really a fuck up from season 3 onward, unless you count trying too hard to not resort to punching her problems as a first resort. It's what made season 3 and 4 so much better than 1 and 2.

I like pearl, sadie, and mabel.
is that a problem?

>>78117827
I'm not defending the show. It sucked.

But criticizing the protagonist for being flawed is not a legitimate criticism.
>>
>>78117871
No, why would it be?

/co/ isn't one person, so of course you can find anyone with any given opinion. But the number of hate those characters get on this board is huge.
>>
>>78117806

I'm a poster on /v/ and it really did amount to people being pissed because so and so cheated on that other guy. I understand that, I just don't care who people I don't know are having sex with and it really had nothing to do with the other complains. DQ got the vaguest mention in some article no one would normally read or give a shit about. I've known since Zork 1 that video game companies pay off reviewers but ironically this isn't even what happened with the beginning of gamergate, nobody cared about the indie girl mentioned at all until the bitching and whining started. Meanwhile duh major companies ahve all reviewers in their pockets (but this wasn't a case of that because no one gives a hsit about indie games or whatever), where the fuck have you mean? Media is all a scam, you're an idiot if you've believe in journalistic integrity for the past fifty years or so, has nothing to do with gender it's about MONEY.
>>
>>78117758
nobody gives a fuck that she cheated, its the fact that journalistic ethics were thrown out the window for cash sex and coverage

If the articles covering her shitty cyoa had a disclaimer saying the guy who wrote it slept with her nothing would have happened
>>
>>78117876
Depends; if those criticisms are, "these flaws are why I dislike the character"
Then they're valid.
if they're criticisms of bad writing, you have to show your work and how your arrived there.


>But the number of hate those characters get on this board is huge.
I don't think hating a character is indicative of a problem.
>>
>>78117846
>the point was her cheating got her shitty CYOA

Like I said, I was there, and the mention was before she fucked the other guy and so incredibly minor and tiny nobody would give a shit if not for the dude's blog post. Actually if not for Gamergate no one would know or care who that bitch is guaranteed.

Again, it sounds like she was a bicth to me, but like social media in general I don't care? Everyone is an asshole. Don't give a shit someone was mentioned briefly in a shitty online article before she fucked said guy either, sorry. Sure she's a bitch but this isn't high school who gives a shit

For real.
I mean, Pearl is my favorite character but I'll still admit that there are plenty of valid reasons to hate her.
>>
>>78117876
Well, you see, the problem with Korra is not that she is flawed. This is actually very interesting. Or would be, if the show didn't have different problem.

Korra felt very realistic at first, but what was wrong and what broke the story and character is that realistically she should've either fail unable to overcome her flaws or overcome them.
She did neither. She never overcame her flaws while plot just bent over to hand her victory.
>>
>>78117908
>I don't think hating a character is indicative of a problem.
There's a consistent pattern, though. /co/ judges characters by double standards. If they're female, they need to be waifu material. If they're male, they can be anything but beta.
>>
>>78117908
>I don't think hating a character is indicative of a problem.

I think this depends on the show. If you're supposed to hate a character, the writers are doing their job.

If not, perhaps there is some issue with the writing,
>>
>>78117950
That's the thing - Korra's problems are not because of her character flaws. It's a plot problem that she's never forced to deal with consequences of or overcome those flaws.

Her being a hot-headed idiot is the exact opposite of a problem. It gives the story potential for inner conflict. What's a problem is that nothing happened to challenge her.
>>
>>78117962
>There's a consistent pattern, though. /co/ judges characters by double standards. If they're female, they need to be waifu material. If they're male, they can be anything but beta.

Even if they're beta, it's okay. 4chan identifies with them.

I do think you're naive if you don't see a major double standard, true. Female characters get crazy strange hate for some reason. Hard to say where that comes from. The writers? The fans?

I guess the lesson is just try to relax about things. Characters aren't real, hate or love the writers, /co/ does a better job with this than the rest of 4chan.
>>
>>78117962
I don't see the two as a double standard.
But I don't know if I agree with it personally.
In point of fact, I think they're the same standard.

They're both sex driven. Men being "beta" is generally shit at being sexually attractive. You know. "Spaghetti dropper" as they say. Not good with women. Sexually unskilled or bad at attracting or interacting with women. A woman not being waifu material is pretty much the same.

It's the same standard really. At least, in this example. However harshly you judge me, I can understand it, even if what female characters I may or may not like might be different. But I'm not sure if there's a particular reason that's similar or not.
>>
>>78117999
And that seems to be underlying issue with most female characters that are disliked. Like, I don't know, Mabel or Lisa?

They are full of flaws, but the story bends to their whim instead of have them face consequences. Flaws are good, but flaws that you write accidentally and fail to notice are bad for your story.
>>
>>78117788
>but the main characters being fuckups in-universe is not among them
I'm not sure about jessica jones because i haven't watched it. But for Korra that is a problem because she is not supposed to be from a writing perspective.
>>
>>78117893
who cares, it was a catalyst for something bigger and more important than she ever was.
doesnt matter where the wake up call started.
>>
>>78118026
>A woman not being waifu material is pretty much the same.
Er, I just realized how this might be read:
No, I don't mean a woman who is a "beta" or shy or spaghetti dropper or whatever.

But a woman who isn't sexually attractive. But for women, well...those qualities are different.
Double standard or not, but the same qualities that make a man a beta might be attractive in a woman. But a woman that is bad at being attractive by the standards that make a woman attractive is generally pissed on, if that's what you're getting at. And they're being consistent there.

It's just that the standards for which males are attractive and females are is different. Which is what it is. I don't want to go too far into that either because that's just a can of worms.
Suffice to say:
It seems consistent to want both the female and male characters attractive. The only inconsistency you see is that what makes a man and woman attractive are different traits entirely. Both personality and physically. And like I said, I want to avoid that conversation if possible. It's not going to end well.

>>78118032
But Mabel has had "Oh shit I am wrong" moments repeatedly. As have Pearl, Sadie, Katara, and ESPECIALLY JJ.
>>
>>78118079
She did? Most of the time she's validated, sometimes in strangest ways (Like in Love God, where arbitrarily assigning a couple worked out and it was basically teen's fault for not accepting it). Wherever she is wrong, it never sticks, like she didn't stop pushing Dipper around after Sock Opera.

Even if she's wrong sometimes, she's entitled, arrogant and takes her brother for granted and yet this never sticks to her even in brief moments of realization.
>>
>>78114368
Man I was starting to think I was the only one who say that, man it was really damn good.

>>78114433
I think that is a rarer case than you're making it out to be. The reality is more likely that people who are not into certain genres can be made to be interested through compelling characters. A lot of people enjoy sports movies for the drama and the circumstance, not the sport.
>>
>>78109642
I don't think is /co/ hating female characters as just using female as a reason to hate. I think its more a symptom of the inability of the majority describe it properly than anything else if its a boy character there a beta faggot if its a girl there well, a girl.
>>
>>78118148
I don't think I ever saw anyone saying that they hate a character for being a girl.

It's the defenders who misrepresent it like this.

Well Pearl, Jessica Jones, and Katara DEFINITELY face consequences when they fuck up, and even when they don't. They get a loooot of shit.

Mabel is more off and on?

She got a full on, fulll-blown "the reason you suck" speech from Bill in Sock Opera that she herself agreed with.

More of that in Escape from Reality would have been really nice, you know?

That said, she didn't really do anything wrong in Dipper and Mabel vs. the Furture, Ford fucked up waaaaaaaaaaay more than Mabel, if anyone should answer for their shit it's Ford.

But Mabel not getting called out is more the RESULT of sexism and double standards than the reverse, if the writers respected her as a character as much as Dipper she would get called out just as much. See the shit Pearl gets, and the other SU female characters, by contrast, the other characters shit on and call them out all the time.

Emma Frost is an entirely different character post-Morrison.
I'm really not a fan of what she's become.

I kinda liked it when Emma's whole rationale/excuse for her horrible actions was, "I just got really damn drunk and high."

Best villain motivation ever really.

Not true any more, though.

It would be a mistake to say on the one hand Spike from MLP is an annoying beta but on the other hand there are shy female characters that people like and you can draw a comparison between the two. There are, in fact, likeable and unlikeable shy or beta characters of both genders. When the different genders are written differently however, or their characters serve different roles in the plot, that is when they are either likeable or unlikeable. In any case, that male characters are disliked when they are betas actually proves that it is male characters that are massively hated on /co/. Which is obviously untrue, but you have to come up with better arguments, and come up with better beliefs than these primitive generalizations "duhhh.../co/ don't like dem fag nerd characters, they only like characters that play football and have big dicks. an dey only like women characters dat is easy that got big titties and that make the male characters sandwiches." This is what feminists do, they axiomatically pretend that everyone is an utter caveman, they have no evidence for any of this, and in fact it's obviously untrue anyway. For them it's not a question of proving their assertions, but trying to get you to accept their assertions without proof.
