I know that Awesome Ego
is already a YMMV reaction, but I don't think it even warrants that. The page is literally a list of arrogant characters that people like. There is nothing else. Should we also have similar page for humble characters, loud characters, meanspirited characters...(Etc)? No.
It doesn't help that there's a real life section
, which is bad both because it's flamebait for editors who don't like the people in question, and
it's flamebait for fans of the people who might believe that they're not arrogant or boastful.
Using the inbound count tool, the article has 51 inbounds since January 1 of this year. That's quite a few, but I still don't think we should keep a page that is "<Personality trait> characters that people like". And if we do, could we at least change it so it has a point? At least Unpopular Popular Character
has an interesting contrast between the two qualities.
