default The mean girl from every otoge, would you ever become her?

Post by Mirai on 13/07/13, 11:24 am

I know this is an odd question but I've been playing otome games for a while now and I've noticed in almost all of the ones I've played, there is always the mean girl(s), depending on how big a fanclub some of these guys have. I know they drive me crazy when I'm trying to get my guy. Though more I played though, the more I wondered that if I had a guy I liked, what would I do to get him? I mean I'm sure I wouldn't try to kill them with a flowerpot or anything but it's an interesting thought.

So if there was a guy you reeeeaallly liked (regardless of whether their single or not), would you ever consider being the mean girl to get him? If yes, what would you do? How far would you go to get them?

It doesn't have to be anything crazy but seriously, be honest. Because at the end of the day, that crazy fangirl from Amnesia deep down is just a girl in unrequited love. (I have no idea if I'm making any sense or not but let's see how this goes >.<)

That's a pretty interesting topic.My answer will probably be kind of boring, though Laughing dududu.
No,I would never become the "mean" girl.
If he says that he doesn't like me then I'll accept it.If a guy rejects me I won't try to change his mind - my pride won't allow me.

Echoing the above answer and it's a 'no'. If the guy doesn't have feelings for me, I don't think pulling jealous acts or being the 'mean girl' would change his mind. I'd wish them both the best and move on. ^^;

And even if I don't know his feelings, I don't want to actively intervene. So flower pots around the world can rest easy. :p

Very interesting topic, Mirai, and I hope it'll attract many responses!

In short? No. Even though I've never been in love before, at least for now, I don't think any guy is worth turning into a mean girl over. Not mention how unhealthy it is on a psychological level to put a love interest on that high a pedestal.

You know, I'm getting sick of the poor execution(s) of the "mean girls" in otome games. They've become the go-to for instigating facepalm-inducing, immature drama. Just shove in some impressively 1D mean girl character and somehow it creates a rift between the protagonist and love interest devastating enough to warrant hours of reading over such a predictable plotline.

Why can't there be a "rival" that healthily competes for the guy's love?

If the game really does want to use a "mean girl", they should make her more interesting. The level of obsessive behaviour in these characters are never adequately explained. Most normal people don't turn into queen bitches over a guy they typically admire from afar without a pre-existing disposition towards such behaviour. These characters sure as hell have a better chance at being interesting than My Default Name Should Be Mary Sue.

Furthermore, wouldn't it be interesting if the protagonist also "responds in kind"? I wouldn't mind a bitchy protagonist, given the slew of boring "I Can Do No Wrong" girls.

I....might...maybe >.> *shot*/

IDK, in reality I wouldn't, but I'm the type of personality that's like I'll keep my bad thoughts to myself in my head. But WHO KNOWS when the lines blur between reality and illusion and you just lose it and do something you wouldn't expect to do

Am not cray though guys rly ^^; I don't THINK I'd ever be a 'mean' girl but I'm not gonna rule out the possibility that I could turn into one....if that answers the question >.> If I REAAAALLLYY love the person though. Not just a crush

Really? No one wants to be the mean, creepy, stalker girl to get her man? :D


In all seriousness, all my crushes in the past liked other girls, and it was fine.  Disappointing, yes, but that's just they way life rolls.  It wouldn't have worked out anyway. :p

I actually haven't played that many otome games with a specific rival mean girl.  The ones I played just have those silly fangirls like the ones in The Wallflower.

Throwing a flower pot on my rival's head? No. Sending jealous death threats? Definetly no. Join his fan club of jealous stalkers? Nope. Stalk him? Maybe ._.' Tease him and your rival? HECK YES! >D Why shouldn't I tease them? >3 I don't know if that defines as a "mean girl", but that's just who I am ^w^ If I get the man, good for me! If I don't, too bad. He's not meant for me :3
