Name a heroine you like but whom you feel is always overshadowed by the male characters in the story
Cindy from Final Fantasy XV. She is so cool and I love how intelligent she was with cars! I wanted to know more about her as a character, but most of the time is centered on Prompto, Noctis, Ignis, and Gladiolus.
For that matter, name a heroine whom you feel is always overshadowed by the other female characters in the story
Sweet Pea from the film, Sucker Punch. The attention is mainly put on Babydoll, but Sweet Pea was level headed and tried to keep all of the girls safe. She was also caring and looked after all of the girls especially her sister, Rocket.
Name a character who had potential but was greatly underutilized in her story
Lunafreya from Final Fantasy XV. She barely got any screen time and I wanted to see more of what she could do. She was also powerful because she was able to heal others, summon the Leviathan, and she also gives Noctis the power to fight the Leviathan! I would have loved to play as her or see what else she could do with her magic!
Name a female character who you either find better in her book than her movie, find better in her movie than her book, or whose portrayals you find equal
Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. I found both portrayals of her to be perfect! She was the first character I could relate to as a child since we both loved reading. I admired her courage in the books and films and loved how Emma Watson portrayed her character!
Name a character who you want more backstory on
Harley Quinn from Batman: Arkham City. I wanted to know more about her as a character because she seems so interesting! The story focuses on the Joker so she is mainly just shown with him. She seems intelligent and funny and I would like to know more about her.
Name a character with traits you feel are sadly overlooked by everyone
Senua from Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. Senua is so strong. She’s brave for trying to save her significant other. She is also a really strong and capable fighter when you have to fight against her demons. She is also brave for being herself and fighting her illness despite having no support from her community except for her husband.
Name a morally grey character. (Villain or anti hero!)
Poison Ivy from Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Basically she loves plants so much that she wants to take care of them. She also despises people because they are hurting the environment. I love how caring she is for her plants and that she is an intelligent scientist. She’s also a fun character because she is confident and a powerful enemy when she uses her plants.
A character you’re stunned isn’t more famous
Babydoll from the film, Sucker Punch. This film really needs more attention! I love the story of Babydoll trying to escape from an asylum she was put in by her abusive father. Babydoll is cunning and all she wants is freedom after being stuck in abuse. I highly recommend you watch this film if you have not already because it is a really interesting film that makes you really think about what you have watched after you finish it.
A character from a piece of fiction you’re amazed isn’t more famous
Utena from Revolutionary Girl Utena. I just started reading the manga before I start the anime. I am putting her on this list because Utena is a really interesting character. She wears suits because she does not like dresses and I am currently at the part where she is fiercely defending another student from an organization. I’ve barely begun the story, but I am interested in learning more about Utena and I wanted everyone who reads my blog to know about her too!
