A quick note about Maureen Fitzsimmons. I have only played Westward 2; Heroes Of The Frontier, and was originally going to place her in the positivly portrayed characters section. But i did not realize that in the first wesward game the main character had to rescue her, until i read her wiki. If someone who has played both westward 1 and 2 happens to believe that Maureen's role in the first game was executed in such a way that it did not diminish her badass-idy as I saw in the 2nd game, then feel free to delete her name from the strong characters section and add her to the positivly portrayed section. All I know about her as she appears in the first game is what I know from her wiki page, so your jugement might be more Informed than mine.

Revision as of 21:46, 10 December 2013

The Iconic Characters category and the Positively Portrayed Characters category are confusing, shouldn't we combine them?

I have an idea now, Instead of combining them I'll just remove the parenthesis by the strong characters catagory, that way any character in that category just needs to be strong, engaging and capable. The positively portrayed characters category can be more strict about sexualization and damsel in distress situations, etc. MarinaTheJolteonMaster (talk) 17:29, May 28, 2013 (UTC) (Marina that now has an acount)

Heya.

For Kairi, she did jump of a balcony and kill a buncha heartless. She's been slowly pulled away from the damsel in distress role and should be a stronger lead. You also lack Aqua from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep, who is extremely strong, Namine from multiple titles, who is also a strong character, as well as Xion from the same series, who probably is just as strong a character as Aqua, as well as a pretty tragic girl. You also lack Ellie from The Last of Us. I could go on, but you get the point.

Don't just put Kairi mainly. She's one of five to six other female protaganists within the entire series.

Suggest that Zelda get moved to the damsels in distress category, as her capture is usually a large part of the Zelda franchise, as well as moving Tifa to the strong women category, as she is, in fact, a strong women and is essentially Cloud's source of stability for much of the game, and his source of strength in Advent Children.
