Gettin spammy in here, dudes. Feel free to continue these musings in one of the talk threads

Right, right. Sorry Tuor.

-------Spammy ends here--------

Okay, so Chi got her powers from Aku. That's the half from her parent, but her attitude... where'd she get that? Not from Blossom, I'm guessing?

IF - IF her mother is really Blossom, in any way, shape, or form... I'd say she did, in fact, get her personality from Blossom.

This isn't really depicted much in fanworks, but in the original PPG series, Blossom was VERY haughty. And "haughty" seems to be the most present feature in Chi's persona.

As for the whole obsession bit, that's totally from Aku. His wiles in creating a perfect society in his image, with all its unique features, probably led to Chi's obsession with her own likes and dislikes. Since she's younger, it shows more.

The signs of building a struggling harem posse. An idea I questioned when I joined...literally, I think my first post ever was asking about it.

I was there. I remember. Who knew then that we would become such good friends. YAY friendship!

On the subject I think that most of Chi's personality flaws come from being a princess and getting what she wants all the time. It tends to make for a very arrogant personality. But I still think there is time for change.

I would guess that if Chi is created out of the fragments of Blossom's soul and from Aku, that she is still her own person. She as her own personality, likes, dislikes, dreams, etc. Don't get me wrong, Blossom is still part of her if this is true - we'll, it looks obvious that it is true. Aku is also a part of her. Her personality, I would guess, comes from a combination of Aku, herself, and Blossom.

As for the attitude, I'd just guess it was the way she was raised.

There I've shorten my sig. But just so you know Ogre was really pissed about this. And he tends to go overboard when he's pissed.

That aside yeah being pampered all her life made her spoiled. But I think her attitude and personality are to do a serious 275. See the death of your former like can seriously mess with anyone's mind. Even a half human/ half demon Aku spawn.

Re: Let it all out

275?
I'm confuzzled. What's a 275?

Re: Let it all out

Mon Dec 02, 2013 2:20 pm

I think he's just trying to be a smart ass, and meant 180.

Also, Meg. We don't care about your alternate split personalities, feel free to knock it off before I do.

Re: Let it all out

If you're pissed then shouldn't you refer to Taz. The rage split. Makes more sense to me. Either way, I'm with blordy, referring to yourself like that is a bit annoying.

Re: Let it all out

270 is between 180 and 360. I think he meant she was beyond being "turned around" yet only party going "in a complete circle". Still though, that would be 270 - not 275.

ALGEBRAIC!!! :D

Hm...
Maybe Mimi will convince Junior to break into Aku's realm to get Chi.

Equivalency of Stupidity. It doesn't make the situation better, but it shows one side how awful the concept is.


And in case it wasn't clear, that was sarcasm. I doubt Chi will just change personalities. If that happens, then I see no real point to introduce her like this.

Re: Let it all out

Mon Dec 02, 2013 8:27 pm

Its not so much as personality change as much as it is just maturing/growing up.

Special times call for special measures. I'm pretty sure chi's current attitude wont get her anywhere with what she wants. If she's really going to do what she wants, which is to find mimi as well as know her origins, just demanding like always wont get her what she wants.

Also he's right that seeing that will make a change in her, at the very least she's not going to be so confident about her own self now. She's going to be doubting herself, which will lead to her questioning everything, which will lead to her thinking a lot more than usual.

And I'm fairly sure chi hasn't really thought of things a lot or seriously before. Just like how she just went to decide to marry mimi. She's not going to be brash and charge blindly for now.

This is all going under the assumption Chi actually cares.

That's pretty much the same thing. As you grow up/mature, your personality changes as you gain new experiences and a better understanding of the world around you.

Are you sure? It's worked out pretty well so far, and that was before she gained her powers.

Why? Because a disturbing flashback occurred of which you have no understanding of?

There's more assumptions going on in there that grammar mistakes. Of which I am now going to fix because it annoys me.

i love her rage mode shes got the cool demon tail and the back scales "there called scales right??? never see em much ever

Re: Let it all out

Tue Dec 03, 2013 6:14 am

They're*
I think you mean the spine spikes, I don't really see any scales on her.

Re: Let it all out

Tue Dec 03, 2013 7:53 am

Well they are something that tore the sh*t out of her room. So they got to count as something. Watch them end up being tentacles or something like that. As for her personality, that is almost entirely from being a spoiled princess, and having a father/mother who rules one of the layers of hell. (Sh*t bus is here. Got to run)

Re: Let it all out

hello.


To be honest I don't think Demongo will betray Aku.He just seems so Repentant, even in the show when Aku got rid off him he begged for forgiveness, not mercy. he only wants to be useful to his master, he does not enjoy his job and if Aku offered to restore him he would take it! but he acknowledges his position in the world and accepts it?

He won't betray anyone to Aku, because quite simply he is a coward he won't do anything that could possibly get him in more trouble. Besides for someone like Demongo who is around His daughter and handles his affairs I think he can't really betray Aku. he was probably spawned from his essence and his need to serve is probably hard wired into him.

goodbye

Ps Do you think in anyway, Bleedman or wjhoever based her character on Princess Morbucks in anyway?

Re: Let it all out

Wed Dec 04, 2013 12:54 am

I never really thought about that last part.

Re: Let it all out

Wed Dec 04, 2013 2:03 am

Heck no! Princess was a spoiled little brat and completely detestable in every single way......

Not to mention her voice really grated on me.

If I had to answer seriously, I would say it is entirely possible Chi was based on her or at least that archtype anyway. I wonder if it was confirmed that that was the case, people would stop complaining about her and say something like "Oh, it's fine if she's supposed to be that way". I think that would be truly ironic. But already Chi has shown far more redeeming qualities than Princess ever had. Princess' only defining qualities were that she was rich and bratty. And those were the only two traits she ever exhibited or used to tackle any problem. Chi has been shown to be resourceful, affectionate (....sort of), Quite clever in certain situations and she already has an interesting back story and we do not even know what it is. Not to mention I have no doubt that her personality will change in response to the story as opposed to Princess who was a completely devoid of any kind of development (Granted she was a minor villein in PPG).

I honestly think she will become more likable and I prefer the story with her in it as opposed to still only three main characters. Okay so that is my best attempt at defending Chi so early in the morning. Y'know, before the next guy comes along and starts the Chi hate post.

I'm sorry, did I say something that offended you? I assure you that was not my intention and I am really sorry if it was received that way.

Re: Let it all out

No no no. It's just-- I can't tell if you're serious or not.

Re: Let it all out

Pretty sure he was. He brought up some good points regarding the differences between Chi and Princess. Though I guess if you wanted to get really technical about it, Princess was also resourceful (consistently convinced her father to give her funding for her various projects), affectionate (for money/power), and somewhat clever (mostly referring to that Santa incident). Can't dispute the mysterious background (at least with regards to her (Chi's) creation) though, since Princess was pretty much just a spoiled rich girl in the show.

Chi has sort of rubbed me the wrong way since her introduction, but I haven't completely given up on her just yet. Just going to wait and see how everything plays out.
