Ok, in her defense, she's beaten the guy like, three times now. She has zero reason to believe she can't do it again, and clearly believed she regained enough of her strength to finish the job (I'd sooner take her word than Sora's since he can't speak FOR her).The real problem is that regardless of how underhanded Vanitas may have been, not only was it still highly telegraphed and repeated (unlike his ambush in BBS), but she was also fully equipped to deal with the situation using her barrier and just... didn't. Additionally, Vanitas shouldn't have been able to phase the barrier in the first place because it held up just fine to all of Vani's attacks up until that point (including fireball attacks that numerically consisted of at least 5-6 fireballs each) and was shown to be powerful enough to keep SDG out throughout the battle (including after she got knocked down). So it's just forced writing.Shame Aqua was foolhardy enough to keep help from coming with SDG. I get that you wanted a moment, ma’am, but now just isn’t the time to boost your ego.
In fairness though, Vanitas only got the upper-hand once he started fighting dirty and brought threatening Ven into things. Still, you really shouldn’t have burned that bridge, lady!
