** Okay, sorry but are we so ignorant about Miele's age that we can't rule that maybe she was 13 in season 3?! I counted and if Flora was 18 in the 3rd season and Miele is in Alfea (Or whatever the school was called) college in season 6 then maybe she was freaking 13! I mean thirteen year old kids can still look young. She might even by 10 or 12 because if you count by season 3 plus the movies she'd be around fifteen if she was ten and seventeen if she was twelve! If she was ten and got into an Alfea college at 15 that would make sense she could've gotten into college early, it can happen. She probably isn't six because if you search for pictures of her doubt she looks around 10, 12 or 13. We can't factor that out, then there's the added part that maybe the people on Flora's planet look different when they age. I hope this didn't come off as rude.
* Um... nothing really major just something I know that bothers fans including me, Bloom acts so coldly towards her adopted parents after finding out about said adoption and starts calling them Mike and Vannessa but is so close to her real ones who she barley knows. I found this weird because Bloom's adopted parents treated her well and loved them but after finding out the truth she treated them like they were always her foster parents. Now I don't know any adopted people so I'm not sure this 100% realistic but on the other hand this could be how some adopted kids act so it's not my place to judge I'm just glad her real parents were super nice and fun because if they weren't idk what I'd do then. I'm glad her adopted parents are still in the picture though so at least she can say she has 4 parents to love! Lucky Mary Sue :)

She's not six or eight because if you search for pictures of her doubt she looks looking around 10, 12 or 13. We can't factor that out, then out. Then there's the added part that maybe the people on Flora's planet look different when they age. I hope age differently, this didn't come off as rude.
is another universe. This troper is just saying that we shouldn't take out all the options.

** I had found that annoying as well. Sure they didn't tell her she was adopted, but they didn't abuse her and raised her pretty well. I don't exactly get how that relationship works in real life, but I doubt it would be like this.

* Why don't we ever see Daphne as a stronger fighter? In the fights this troper has seen, she always seems to be at the same level as the Winx and has had to wait for Bloom to bail them all out of a fight in at least one case. But she's a nymph, and should be a whole lot more powerful then any of the Winx. Why don't we ever see her put that nymph mask back and start curbstomping the villains who attack?

**Not sure if this applies to the non 4Kids canon, but I imagine that both Icy's and Bloom's elements are not just ice and fire, but rather, death and life, respectively. 4Kids once said that Icy's power came from "primordial void" and "dead planets" on their site (if I recall correctly). Domino has always been described as an "iced" planet, instead of a "dead" one. Seeing as how it is suggested that Belladona iced Domino, Icy's power "ice" probably represents "death". Meanwhile, Dragon Fire has been described as the source of life in the universe, so Bloom's "fire" is actually symbolic of "life". Death is quite morbid, so it got subbed out. This makes sense why Bloom and Ivy are leaders, because "dark" (Darcy) vs "light" (Stella) is a better central conflict than "ice" vs "fire".

** Let's see said legends: [[{{Mummy}} Mummies]], a classic monster to a modern westerner that any of the Winx should have been able to defeat without trying; a sphinx [[RiddlingSphinx whose shtick is known to pretty much everyone]] (and in fact acted ''exactly'' like the mythical one when Chatta gave the answer), yet she failed to demand the riddle (then again, it was met in Egypt and the riddling one was in Greece, thus she could have been thrown off by that); the Green Dragons are a relative unknown (I personally know of the pearl, but couldn't tell how to save my life), so this one is forgivable; the Children of the Night are ''vampires'', and there's ''no way'' she could have not known how to deal with them (sure, the garlick may have failed, but she didn't even try with their other traditional weaknesses. One of which, sunlight, ''annihilated'' them); the traditional weakness of zombies is salt, but with Romero's movies it's not that well known anymore (not that it was a problem, given how weak they were); [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolves]] are another well known monster whose weakness is famous, yet it took Daphne to reveal it; the Snow Queen's legend ''should'' not be well known, except for [[Disney/{{Frozen}} a certain well-known movie]] that should have caused her curiosity; the Minotaur, being from ClassicalMythology, is well known in Italy (and this is an ''Italian'' series, so no excuses), but then again the monster's weaknesses vary with the version and all involve enough physical strength to drive a sword or a bull's horn in a bull's skull, something ''none'' of the Winx has; the FrankensteinsMonster is the goddamn' Frankenstein Monster, she should have known how to deal with it (or at least that lightning made it stronger); and Rumpelstiltskin's legend is relatively well known, and the solution should have been obvious (my solution would have been a lawyer). Going by this, she should have known how to defeat most of them, yet she failed to find the solution.

** That doesn't mean she knows ''all'' of the fairytales. Perhaps those particular tales are a bit less popular than some others.

\n\n* After the latest season I start to wonder: how the hell did Bloom fail to find the counters for the various Legendarium monsters? She was established since the start as a fairy tales aficionado, she should have known how to counter the products of those legends coming from Earth. In fact I can see her using the legend of the Snow Queen and Musa's rocky relationship with Riven to lure Icy close enough to just bash her on the head...
