Otterpaw defends Lionblaze against popular arguments.
People hate Lionblaze. Lionblaze is one of my favorite character. As you can see from the title, I am going to defend Lionblaze.
One reason that people hate Lionblaze… “he couldn’t die!”:
Ah ah ah, did Lionblaze ask to get his powers? Was it his fault that he was a part of a prophecy? And let’s remember that he lost his power after The Last Hope. People get annoyed that he complained that a tree branch hit him on the head, but he doesn’t have his powers and he’s struggling to live a normal life. He had his powers for most of his life and he has to adjust to being a normal cat.
A second reason why people hate Lionblaze… “he’s a Gary Stu!”
A Gary Stu is a character with no flaws that is perfect. Lionblaze has many flaws. For example, he met with Heatherpaw who is from another clan. A Gary Stu wouldn’t break the code. He did stop, but a Gary Stu wouldn’t do it at all. Also, he refused to get the catmint, while a Gary Stu would get it right away and be a hero.
Also, another flaw is that Lionblaze trained in the Dark Forest with Tigerstar. Gary Stus are perfect and they wouldn’t train with an evil cat. He has many flaws, like the three that I just stated.
Reason number three people hate him… “He killed Russetfur!!!”:
Well, it’s not Lionblaze’s fault. Russetfur was too old for a battle, and he did it completely by accident. Lionblaze accidentally kills her while he was trying to save his leader. It was Russetfur’s fault that she tried to kill Firestar, if she didn’t she could still be alive. It wasn’t Lionblaze’s fault that he killed Russetfur, he was saving Firestar.
So overall, Lionblaze was a regular cat with a power. He isn’t perfect, he has his flaws. It’s not his fault that he killed Russetfur – it was completely by accident and he saved Firestar.
I hope you enjoyed! Remember, this is just my opinion. I’d like to hear some cats you’d like me to defend in a future article! 🙂
