It’s usually fan boys screaming and shouting and not really saying anything of substance. The type of trolling behavior that the internet encourages people to do.
That’s not to say there aren’t logical arguments out there.
In this post I’ll do a character analysis covering:
And so on when it comes to
Let’s get to it.
She’s one of the most famous female characters in
She’s a bit cheeky, fiesty, and is well aware of her sex appeal. At least on some level.
This is why she’s attempted to use it in different occasions as a way of persuasion. BUT it’s never to the extent that she’ll throw away her dignity, morals, and sell her soul.
She’s aware of her worth. And is confident. That makes her sexier in my eyes.
Her personality goes a lot deeper than what’s on the surface though, once you strip away the comedy and what not.
She’s empathetic. I’d say one of the most in the entire series.
She’s willing to forgive even if she never forgets. Just think about FLARE and what she did to
Though it was more than just
All it took was an apology and everything was forgiven from there.
While “forgiveness” might be a theme in
Outside of being psychotic, almost everyone has a reason. Even if it’s not a great excuse.
That’s empathy right there.
She can see beyond the surface when it comes to matters of the heart and a person’s emotions.
You could say that’s why she’s in tune with her feelings. And why if she feels like crying, she does. Because she feels so strongly and has stronger sensibilities than most.
2. Emotional Intelligence
This continues from the last point.
The ability to understand people, even strangers, and see things from their point of view. And distinguish between feelings and even sense when something is wrong or right (intuition).
People with high EQ are good at overcoming things emotionally. And
Even in spite of her weaknesses, she pushes forward where most would break down and struggle.
It’s because of her emotional intelligence that her emotions drive her forward, as opposed to weigh her down and stand in the way.
It’s her “power” in a way.
In fact she’s one of those where even if you’re a stranger, it feels like a friendship straight away.
That might not have been the case when she met
That said, through all the seasons you can see how everyone
She’s a + not a -. A rare type of friend you can’t just find anywhere.
Some people smile just to smile. But you can always tell they’re trying to hide something.
Others don’t smile at all, or just aren’t the cheery, energetic types. Nothing wrong with that.
It’s almost as if she’s true to whatever she’s feeling. That can annoy some people, but it’s not something a person can hate.
Plus it is something someone can be inspired by.
She’s as genuine as it gets. And being cheerful only makes it better.
Not ONCE has
That doesn’t mean people who did that are “bad” people, or disloyal (Elfman, etc), but
It’s just how she is.
Even when it seems insane or puts her at a disadvantage, she stays loyal and instead will find a way to make the other person see sense again.
If that doesn’t work, she’ll accept it for what it is. But won’t allow herself to become hateful or vengeful.
That also speaks to her kindness and positivity.
Her passion serves a lot of purposes.
Because she’s passionate she tends to speak her mind. Even in situations where that would be dangerous (an enemy).
Or if in ordinary situations, her passionate nature is what will cause her to be honest and not hold back.
Her beliefs fueled by her passion won’t allow her to stay quiet and save face for long.
Her passion is also what motivates others, not just herself. And it makes people pay attention to what she’s saying or conveying.
In a way, it’s contagious. It speaks straight to a person’s heart. She makes you feel something.
7. Improvising + Intelligence
She’s improvised on many occasions throughout
One example is during the S class wizard arc, if you can call it that.
She’s the only one who was able to figure out where Mavis Vermillion’s grave was. AND she’s the only one who was able to pull it off.
Not even the S class wizards were capable of doing that, or Makarov, or whoever else who’s “smart”.
Let’s not forget how she’s responsible for the idea of “trapping” Acnologia inside that ball. Or “Fairy Sphere” if you wanna be literal.
Some people wear their heart on their sleeve. They welcome people, as opposed to pushing them away as far as body language.
She lets people in and expresses everything that she is with a “take it or leave it” approach.
The only thing she’s self conscious about really is her novel, but that’s normal I guess. And it doesn’t take away from her open hearted nature.
It might seem like a weakness, but it’s a strength when balanced.
9. Goal orientated
Believe it or not, but
This isn’t an aspect that’s explored much since the story is bigger than this, but it does show up enough.
The point here though is she’s goal orientated, thinks about the future, and doesn’t shackle herself to her “work” or day job.
She’s confident and self aware enough to think beyond that, and that’s a strength in itself. Or a likable trait at the least.
Because of her kindness, vulnerability, and open heart, she can also be NAIVE.
It’s a consequence of letting people in and being so warm to others. Which is ironic since it can be a strength.
Imagine if this was real life for example. At some point she could end up in some pretty bad situations, even if she’d overcome it.
That said, it’s also what makes
She was tricked into believing that one guy could help her get into the
The irony of forgiveness being a strength, is it’s also a weakness if mismanaged.
She forgave Flare and Minerva, and it all turned out fine in the end. But again, this is an
If this was more realistic like let’s say, Magi or
But that’s human nature anyway. You can’t always get it right or have things be perfect.
12. Physical strength/combat
Aside from the running gag of the famous “
Not in an endurance kind of way, but when it comes to fighting, physical combat, combat skills and so on.
Especially since she’s a main character.
I think it would have put her more on par with
13. Too humble
This is a bit of contradiction when you realize
She’s the epitome of hard work, persistence, and not allowing adversities to stand in the way of what you want.
That’s why she’s an S class wizard. She’s inspiring to everyone around her.
Of course throughout the entire series there’s a f*ck load of character development, but it’s one of
While someone like
That’s a good idea of
There’s more to her character than people claim, especially people who criticize or try to boil her down to “fan service” or the fact that she cries, etc.
She’s genuinely one of my favorite characters. And in general, she’s more relatable than most.
