PLEASE DON'T HATE ME FOR SAYING THIS, JUST HEAR ME OUT:
While I, personally as a fan of Sonic, don't hate Princess Elise as a character, there are a couple of things that just BUG the hell out of me about this particular character. Firstly, the amount of times she gets kidnapped by Eggman/Robotnik in the game (Sonic 06), I swear she gets kidnapped more times than princess peach and at least with princess peach, she gets kidnapped once per mainstream game, in Sonic 06, Princess Elise gets kidnapped like 5 times in a single game and sure, Princess Peach did get kidnapped more times in the entire mario franchise than princess elise, but Elise's kidnappings happened within the same game. Sorry but this just bothers me, why can't she just defend herself or use that mystical power that she posseses. At least with someone like Blaze (also a princess) she is able to defend herself and even fight back.
The other thing that bothers me is the fact that she is not allowed to cry otherwise it will awake iblis, the thing that bothers me about this is that I get that if she cries, the beast would be unleashed, However, what if she was laughing so hard that tears would start falling out, would tears of joy cause the beast to awaken. I'm sorry, but that is a stupid plot point and the writers of the game should pay attention to stuff like this.
Like I have stated, i'm NOT hating on the character because everyone else is doing it and as a character, Elise is fine and I DO NOT hate her, there is just some things that just really bother me when it comes the character as a whole.
Anyway, these are my two gripes with the character and if you do not agree with what I say that is fine, I will not judge you, these are MY opinions, if you do not agree with what I say, then you don't have to agree with me. All i'm asking is to respect my opinion, I will respect yours and we can all have a jolly good time.
