You know, I have been thinking, for the Ensemble Darkhorse entry, should we make mentions to a character(s) from a certain personality, for example, like the most popular characters with the Smug personality are Marshal and Julian. Just a thought. What do you think?

Someone thinks Isabelle is not an Ensemble Darkhorse. How many agree with that troll?

I actually agree, it's misuse. She's not an Ensemble Darkhorse since she's pretty much promoted BY Nintendo to be a main character (she's front and center on all official media), which makes her very much not a Darkhorse. "The most promoted character is also popular" is NOT Ensemble Darkhorse. That said, since she's getting a Nendoroid figure she qualifies as a Breakout Character.

It doesn't matter if she's more popular than God, it's still misuse to say she's an Ensemble Darkhorse. The trope gets misused very heavily.

Also might be a case for Spotlight-Stealing Squad. In any case, I'm going to yank Ensemble Darkhorse.

Why was my addition of Chuck Cunningham syndrome deleted? It's VERY true, and fully valid.

Then validate it. Personally I can't think of a single character who got Brother Chucked... if only because there are so few main characters, and they're there for good.

There are a lot of villagers who you may not consider important, but who were liked by individual players, and are missing in later games. If you don't believe me, go check out the Animal Crossing wiki, and take a REALLY GOOD LOOK at their list of characters. There are several hundred of them, and only a handful have appeared in all games.
