I don't know about you guys, but the whole existence of this trope kind of reeks of sexism. I know a lot of the blame can be placed on the Damsels' own stupidity, but it wouldn't exist at all if it The Distressed Damsel trope (in itself ridiculously sexist) weren't so prevalent. Besides, aren't heroes supposed to care equally about saving EVERY innocent, no matter what their gender? (I apologize if I'm completely missing the problem here. Please don't get offended anyone.)

Yeah, considering they thought that adding Princess Peach to this list was a good idea? Strikes me as a little of Did Not Do The Research, there.

Wait, it's Rinoa's fault she got possessed by the villain they didn't know about? Or for the ground to collapse where she was standing? I think that entry could do with some revision.

It's Rinoa's fault that she's in a game certain people don't like and therefore they don't like her.

A wee bit defensive, don't you think?

Yes, I suppose it is.
