Wasn't sure if there was a thread like this but what are some female characters that you feel are often ignored or over looked

I've noticed this problem in fandom, a well fleshed out female character is often ignored for the male counterpart.

Can also be interesting female characters with potential that you feel got snubbed in one way or another. Pls discuss!

First time making a thread pls no bully

I would argue her de-evolution after season 2 is a good thing, before that she used to be just your average hot love interest.
She was only called "the worst" because the creator is Dan Scrote Harmon and they writers had an Annie bias because they clearly had the hots for the 18-year-old character.

No. 218706

Yessss I love her and she is really hot, I’m sorry. LoK had few interesting characters but she was one.

No. 218710

>she is really hot
you are correct lol.

Also yeah, I found mostly the side characters and one off villains often far more interesting but maybe it's just hard for me to give a shit about teenagers.

No. 218737

Her being the reductionist feminist made her a much better character. Haven't watched the show in a long time but I think they dropped her as the hot girl the second the writers noticed Annie's actress has breasts, then wrote her as ugly and annoying for the rest of the show. Aside from baiting lesbian scenes with Annie that is.

I never interacted with the fandom, I just watched the show. they didn't like her??? do you think the writers did her dirty or is it just the fandom?

I would have liked to see more of her but I liked all her scenes…

she was great. LoK personalities & messaging was so bad that the literal cop character was by far the best person on the show.

File: 1657154679381.png (2.35 MB, 1784x992, benedetta.png)

not exactly underrated because she's the titular character but Benedetta gets a lot of shit from people for being lesbian exploitation slop but I think Benedetta the character is amazing. high on her own supply and menacing in a way women are rarely portrayed. the way she is shrewd and gets what she wants using her faith is so psycho you're not sure if she believes it herself or not.

she is such a piece of shit it's weirdly refreshing. the lesbian angle just highlighted how megalomaniacal and delusional she was (fuck her for the way she treated her girlfriend). a real villain but kind of an antihero too since she protected all those people from the plague

Idk if she's underrated but ever since they introduced Caital I've been obsessed with her. She isn't a flat one-dimensional character and despite the seasonal story (season of the haunted) boiling down to "lets do therapy" they didn't make her winy or soft when getting confronted with her nightmare it made me love her even more. She talks the way you would expect an empress of a warrior empire. She isn't preaching about pacificism or anything like that yet plus she's extremely cunning. Caital has developed immensely since they introduced her which was something I didn't expect since the lead female character is just known as a Badass TM.

I love Caiatl. I will not let moids ruin her for me.

I feel like she got judged way too harshly because of the events in season of the splicer since people jumped on calling her "LITERALLY HITLER!!". A lot of fans forgot that Lakshmi-2 has only been reset twice in her entire life as an exo and I think she has her memories as a human meaning she lived through the collapse AND dark age. She remembers all the horrible shit the fallen have done to humanity and they're part of the reason why the humans live in one city only. The Last City basically became a military run state since the Vanguard are making decisions left and right without consulting the civilian factions. Of course she was pissed the the vanguard accepted the fallen (house of light) with open arms while berating civilians that had every right to be against it. The fans just starting aping up "OH THE FALLEN ARE JUST LIKE IMMIGRANTS AND LAKSHMI IS LIKE TRUMP" when the situation is nothing like that.

Yeah she did horrible stuff but seeing people endlessly dunking on her was annoying. The fans were too busy hyping up "mithrax bro!" (he's cool don't get me wrong) I'm sure if Lakshmi were a man people would point out how resilient her character is in the face of literal immortal killing machines who running the city while bickering among themselves.
I love how she looks the art team didn't hold back, moids can't sexualize her easily but it also means she doesn't get a lot fanart.

Iirc the author even admitted he killed her off because she was too smart and he had no idea how to advance without her revealing Lights identity way too early lmao.

How? Her character still has more fanfics than Clarice by a large margin.

Given the hannibal TV show fandom is way bigger it seems proportional if you're comparing book/movie to tv show
