Hello! And yes, I do know that Scourge is considered overrated but-
Before I get to this, I want to announce that this is only my opinion and you may HATE Scourge as much as you want, (But I love bad boysss)
Alright, time to get explaining.
Reasons why people may HATE Scourge-
He’s emo (Which is kind of true but yeah…)
He’s overrated (Just because someone is overrated doesn’t mean you have to hate them)
He’s too strong
He’s just boring
I will be explaining why these aren’t true (Apart from him being emo)
1. He’s overrated
The thing is, people say he’s overrated and hate him because of it. It makes him underrated a bit, and then they have no right to say that he’s overrated. But what I don’t understand is why people hate characters because they are overrated. He isn’t, and because you say it and begin to hate him, the people who like him go DOWNNN and he becomes underrated. So yeah……. don’t hate people because they’re overrated. It may make them underrated!
2. He’s too strong
This isn’t a common reason, but I find people to hate him because of this. And I wouldn’t say that! If I were Scourge, I’d fight as hard as I could because my own clan were starting to doubt me, or my siblings bullied me. Scourge fights hard, he’s not that strong, he puts a lot of effort into fighting, and I’d say it’s very well written. If I were him, I wouldn’t want to lose all my reputation, and fight even harder to gain more. This isn’t a reasonable statement to make for hating a character.
3. He’s boring
Scourge IS NOT boring. (Is not in red letters). I find him to be quite interesting, he engages you into scenes with him in it, and makes them quite interesting and dramatic, it adds some drama and spice into the books and I love that. Overall, he’s violent and if you didn’t know me before (I’m Flintleaf), I love drama!
These are the reasons why people should re-consider their opinion about Scourge, if you didn’t like him already. I hope you enjoyed, goodbye!
