Xion just come and go... She disappear easily OoO;
some people think Xion ruin the axel-roxas moment Xp
maybe that's why a lot of people hate her
In my case I felt like she had a role that got too complicated!
seeing how she's a painful deconstruction of one, I for one ain't down with that
tv tropes said:Note that to be a deconstruction of X the work must both play the trope deadly straight and not ignore the realistic implications or consequences of the trope, for bad or good. As such, it both abides by the trope while offering criticism of it regarding how it would work in Real Life.
...So, you say she is a Sue, and the plot of Days is meant to show us why being a Sue is a bad thing as a clone/member of the Organisation?
So Xion is meant to be a parody of a Sue? s1eyeballs
Some treat her as such, because a Sue is supposed to be perfect and is usually the target for self insertion.
So uh, gluck having such a pathetic fate as her, self inserters.
Well, that ignores how many many Sues have tragic fates, because as a consequence they get characters such as Axel and Roxas and Riku to worry about them and protect them and chase after them and stand up for them and ask about them continually when they are gone etc etc etc
I think her appearing like Kairi threw off enough people. People used to think she was heavily connected to Aqua back before Days was released.
You use to call her a sue all the time,but said you still liked her regardless. Why is she not one to you anymore? Just curious.Xion's not a Sue imo in case you missed it.
Xion to a T.Mary Sue is always on the Spotlight Stealing Squad. Without her, there would be a story.
Roxas the main character my ass...She's The Chosen One. Even if the canon hero is already The Chosen One, she either 'shares' the position or just steals it away from them.Or she might be part of the same specialized species or organization as the hero.
Roxas is apparently to dumb and ice-cream crazy to figure stuff out on his own. So Su.. er Xion was there ( physically or otherwise) to push him in the right direction... all the time.Alternately she is destined to help the destined one fulfill their destiny.
God was that sympathy card played thickly...Sympathetic Sue has an unusually Dark And Troubled Past to the excess, but other subtypes often have them too, just to emphasize how brave and special she is to live through it.
Thanks to Diz's deus ex machina she's not *dead.*Just hiding. Coded seem to be all about Xion. The other characters being brought back seemed like afterthoughts.Perform a Heroic Sacrifice as a way to prove that she's Too Good For This Sinful Earth. Bonus points if the story goes out of the way to ensure she doesn't leave an ugly corpse (whether it be by a method that doesn't involve external physical damage or by her body not being recovered).More bonus points if it turns out to be a Disney Death.
If we go by the Days novels afterwords Xion is Kanemaki. Nomura is Roxas and Sora.If there is a personality, it's who the author wishes they could be, never who they are. While this is a regular feature in most original characters, Mary Sue takes it to the extreme.
Xion was so sweet, angelic, and noble that one could feel a toothache coming on. Even nomura came out and said he made her a brave and pure girl. Pure is usually euphemism for unrealistic and boring.Incorruptible.
Contrived is a better word.Regardless of what skill level the canon characters have established, she might just simply be better than them, often in ways that do not make sense.
So very much yes. Not just personalities though,but the plot itself. In a little word we like to call retcon.Previously-established personalities change in reaction to her.
Saix's whole purpose in the game seemed to be this.Evil characters follow her around like a puppy or seem uncharacteristically obsessed with her.
This so very much.The characters in general just seem unnaturally focused on her, positive or negative
If Roxas runs away? The org's assassin comes out to kill him. If the assassin runs away? The kinda batshit second in command comes after him. If Xion does it pretty much three to four times? Slap on the wrist. Not only that but she gets away with hacking into their computer as well. How she even knew how to is anyone's guess. Not to mention the password. Everyone's reactions toward her at some point was this. Let's not even get started with the carousing with the enemy(Riku). Also how she knew Xenmas real plans, to tell Roxas anything, at her *death* is weird as well.She gets special treatment in-universe.
Retcon = Retroactive Continuity.
Reframing past events to serve a current plot need. When the inserted events work with what was previously stated, it's a Revision; when they outright replace it, it's a Rewrite. The ideal Retcon clarifies a question alluded to without adding excessive new questions. In its most basic form, this is any plot point that was not intended from the beginning. The most preferred use is where it contradicts nothing, even though it was changed later on.See also Ass Pull, but note that not every Retcon is an Ass Pull. An Ass Pull, by definition, is something that was not properly set up before it is sprung on the audience. It is related to Deus Ex Machina. Sometimes a good Retcon can actually improve the current narrative. A good way to get away with a Ret Con is to reveal new implications or motivations for events that have already been established.
By the very definition of retcon the Xion that we now have for Days is one. She was inserted into the middle of already established canon and its characters. BBS is a retcon as well. Most prequels are. If they are made after established canon has already been set. Again, though execution comes into play.
Most written Sues will have the guys care/be worried about them "because" and won't really give you any better reason beyond them caring about a concept, less so about an actual person. A rather crucial element to the self insertion element as well.
Because she's a "Princess" or a "sister" but you never get it elaborated on. An example from without the canon would be, for instance, KH1 Kairi where beyond her being a childhood friend with Sora and Riku, you weren't given a good reason why they should care nor was that friendship properly expanded upon, either in retrospective or presently.
