Iím curious on why certain characters are removed from plucky girl just because of their dark and troubled and past. Can a broken bird be a plucky girl, because even if they are jaded and out walls up they can still be optimistic

Image Change?

I was just thinking, should we change the image to Vanellope von Schweetz, because I found this:

See the third paragraph about This Article for proof.

Just a question but why do we have a separate trope for a female determinator?

Can we pull Veronica Mars from the examples? She's NOT optimistic; she expresses the Determinator, and is esp. resigned to the world basically sucking. She fights not to make the world "better", but mostly because she has a obsessive need for vengeance, closure and (perhaps most of all) knowledge.

Is there such a thing as a plucky boy or is this really an Always Female trope?

Idoubt it, I'm correcting that, at least for now.

I suppose it's possible, based on the laconic wiki's definition: "Optimistic, female determinator" If you ignore the "female" part, you could have a female character who doesn't fit the trope because she's not an optimist, but no less refuses to quit. Alternatively, you could have an optimistic male character falling into the role. It just doesn't seem logical to me for there to be separate tropes of Determinator based on gender alone.
