Agreed on both points. But then Mephiles also gets his undeserved plaudits because apparently he’s ‘intelligent’ and ‘diabolical’ and, yes, killed Sonic even though it was by the cowardliest and lamest way possible and was not in any way, shape or form believable.
Basically, people want a villain they can hate. Someone who is just plain evil. Mephiles fits that bill.
Moreover, he doesn’t do anything that would constitute a need to team up with the heroes, something Eggman had to do five times (counting that game) up to that point, which harmed his cred, so to speak. People want competence in their villains and to the general public, Eggman’s a boob from his alias and appearance to his voice and methods.
Yeah, the way Mephiles struck down Sonic was lame, but pure evil doesn’t care about sport or playing fair. They just want their goals reached, by any means, especially if it’s the easy way out. We’re not supposed to relate to the bad guy or anything like that. We’re supposed to hate them so we can cheer for the heroes. That’s the bottom line and that is Mephiles’ charm. He was the heartless, ruthless, evil villain the series was lacking, the bad guy Eggman can’t really be, and the 100% dark “hedgehog” Shadow tries not to be nowadays.
That’s why he’s popular. Does he deserve to be defended? No. But I’m doing it anyway so both sides of the matter can be touched upon and acknowledged. Mephiles the Dark is a basic villain in every sense of the word, and was never meant to be anything more than that. And you can bet there are those who want the Doctor to take notes from him, who just want standard unshakable good vs. unacceptable evil with no annoying gray areas to get in the way of their enjoyment.
Further proof that the Sonic the Hedgehog fandom, as a whole, has no clue what the hell they want from this franchise.
wow… I was all ready to give you some advice on what went wrong with my break up and then I read that last sentence.
maybe don’t be such a superficial shallow asshole? She’s a person!! who obviously has some sort of emotions for you two, you don’t just throw that away for a better looking option. I feel absolutely horrible for your 3rd that she trusted you two enough to open herself to such terrible people as you two.
Humans are not machines you can just throw away for the newest model.
That person needs to be smacked.
Did you know that Bill Watterson considered allowing Calvin and Hobbes to be animated but it never happened.
Don’t you think Calvin and Hobbes should have an animated series or a movie?
Yes, and no. It’d be awesome to see the strip animated, but getting it just right would be so painstaking, it’s not worth the trouble.
Ok, everyone. As my team and I finally prepare the new Concept: “Mobius” site, I’d like your input on what you’d like to see this time around.
This is going to be a new beginning for the site, so I want to know what you want to see on it or from it. What have you been wanting C:M to cover?
Seeing people slut shame the Dead or Alive girls:
Hm. The moon is kinda bloody, but not that much from where I am.
Glad I can see it, at any rate.
