Day 9: Worst character 〰 Smellerbee and Unalaq 😝
Smellerbee: I don't like Smellerbee because she's an annoying hypocrite. It's bad enough that she got irrationally angry when Iroh mistook her for a boy (I mean, she is about as far from feminine as a girl can get!), but she also turned into a hypocrite later on. She pleaded with Jet to abandon his pursuit of Iroh and Zuko so that the Freedom Fighters could "start over," but a year or two later, she led the Freedom Fighters and the residents of Yu Dao in a rebellion against the [descendants of the] Fire Nation colonials 🤔 What was that about starting over, Smellerbee? 😒
Unalaq: You don't know me if you don't know that I VEHEMENTLY DESPISE Season 2 of LoK, so this shouldn't come as a surprise to those of y'all I'm close to 😂 I'll admit that Unalaq was an interesting... but only until it was revealed that his goal was to start a new Era of the Avatar 😑 Unalaq was a bad brother and a terrible father (I mean, he usurped the throne from Tonraq and was willing to let Desna die!), so he had an Ozai-like vibe to him that was kind of cool, but his desire to merge with Vaatu and become a Dark Avatar made NO sense whatsoever, given what we were told about him. I mean, Unalaq understood the spirits better than anybody... so why would he think freeing Vaatu, a spirit composed of pure, unadulterated evil/iniquity, would end well? You could argue that he just wanted to be as powerful as Korra, but even then, wouldn't he, with all his knowledge of the spirits and whatnot, have realized that Vaatu, being the Avatar world's literal manifestation of evil, would just destroy him as soon as he set him free from his prison in the Tree of Time?
Note: I determined the worst characters not by which characters I hated the most, but rather by which characters I found least interesting/most annoying/most poorly developed.
