YMMV / The Idiot

  • Jerkass Woobie: Nastasya Filippovna, full stop. To some extent Ippolit as well.
  • Moe: Prince Myshkin has a lot of these traits, being a virginal ill guy who gives off an air of child-like innocence and trust. Needless to say, this being Dostoevsky, things do not go well (see the Purity Sue entry below). Could possibly count as a deconstruction for this reason.
  • The Woobie: Prince Myshkin.
