I suppose its to make their origins more complex and interesting. Take Mimi for example. She could've just been the child of some random woman Him seduced/raped/stole from. Thats fairly simple.
Blossom on the other hand is already a set character, with a backstory and personality mostly everyone knows about. Which makes it such a shock that the most moral of the Powerpuff Girls could/would have sex with Him. Thats a story that people would want to know (people couldn't stop talking about). It also provides Mimi with an interesting backstory and explanation for her powers(?).
In a crossover story, people expect more canon characters than OCs, much less OC's who have no relation to anyone canon. But thats the point, we want to see them interacting in different ways. Having a kid is just one of them.
So what you're saying is if you want a good story you use a "random character". But to make it a GREAT story you use a set character(Blossom) to add "shock" for the audience. So we're making it the equivalent of a tabloid story? Whatever, moving on.
1. More complex and/or interesting than "random character"
2. Interesting backstory for Mimi
3. Explanation of Mimi's powers
1.***More complex and/or interesting than "random character"
What you're doing is using absence of evidence as evidence of absence. The "random character" doesn't exist because the "random character" wouldn't be interesting enough, basically.
We don't even know the character and yet we stick to the claim that Blossom fits the role perfectly because she's not "random". Thats not sane thinking.
ALL characters start out seemingly random. ALL characters start out seemingly flat. Its like saying "This story has its own characters? Must be garbage."
2.***Interesting backstory for Mimi
Blossom is required to make Mimi's backstory interesting how again? Would no one
would interested in the development of just Him? He's only the most obscure and cruel villain in the show's entire history.
3.***Explanation for Mimi's powers
Having Blossom as a mother explains absolutely nothing about Mimi. What powers does Mimi have that can't be explained by Him?
Have you seen her flying, shooting lasers, or freezing things with her breathe? Please direct me to the pages.
About Blossom x Him...
Here you have two characters that got into a relationship ending with sex and then a child. Yet they remain exactly the same. The courting changed nothing. The relationship changed nothing. Child birth changed nothing. And lastly, Mimi changed nothing
. They're EXACTLY the same. It's as if it never happened. (I'm more focused on Blossom here.) The only proof these two were together is that Mimi exists. Take her out, and say those two were together and then no one could picture it.
YOU CAN'T BE THE SAME PERSON AFTER WILLINGLY HAVING A CHILD WITH YOUR MORTAL ENEMY.
Its not possible to keep your CANON Blossom and CANON Him and still get to keep their FANON child. How inhuman, unrelatable, and unbelievable is to fuck something so sinister it can't say its own name? And then still be able to put on the same stupid face and act every bit as self righteous as if she hadn't? Blossom isn't even ruffed up, not a single hair out of place. How can she stand the sight of him? She's like some fucking lifeless doll and it freaks me the fuck out.
Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup all saw what he would do to Earth without them to protect it. AND YET. She isn't corrupted? Twisted? Changed? No, not at all. She could fuck the ultimate embodiment of evil and feel nothing afterwards. Absolutely indifferent. Did everyone just not care she did? How realistic is that?
There's no aftermath, no dust that needs to settle, nothing. Apparently Blossom's morel's were bent far enough for her to fuck Him but not enough for her character to break canon? How does that make any sense?TL:DR
Being a set character doesn't always mean the ideal character. There is nothing that makes a "random character" 's story immediately weaker than a set character. Every character you meet is seemingly random and seemingly flat to begin with.
If your explanation is:
"Random character" does not exist because said "random character" wouldn't be as interesting as a set character."
Then tell me how could you possibly know? How could anyone know that?TL:DR About Blossom x Him
Its not the fact that they get together thats unreal, its the fact that they haven't changed at all. It's like they never got together but Mimi was still born anyway.
