30 Day Digimon Challenge - Day 13 by Blitzkrieg1701 30 Day Digimon Challenge - Day 13 by Blitzkrieg1701

I actually feel a little bad about this pick, since it’s the one EVERYBODY makes.  At this point, being a Digimon fan who complains about Meiko is a bit like being a wrestling fan who complains about Roman Reigns.  It’s such a cliche that it’s honestly a bit lame to keep on doing it… and yet, here we are.

I mean, good God, Meiko is a worse self-insert fanfic character than most actual fanfic self-inserts.  All this character does is take over scenes, receive affection from the established characters, and feel sorry for herself in a calculated attempt to generate audience sympathy.  Really stop and think about it for a second: if you removed Meiko from Digimon Tri entirely, if Meicoomon were just a stray Digimon running around on her own, what would actually change?  What affect does this character have on the plot that wouldn’t have been achieved via other, previously established means?  She’s completely and utterly POINTLESS!

And believe you me, it takes a LOT for me to dislike a character worse than I already dislike most of the goggleheads.  I think Tai and Davis are utter jokes compared to Matt and TK.  I think Masaru is a charmless idiot thug.  There are debilitating childhood illnesses that I like more than Tagiru.  Yet, even taken together, none of them damaged their series to the degree that Meiko did.

…although, at the very last minute, Meiko DID manage to infuriate Tai/Sora shippers, so even she’s not ALL bad *evil laugh*

(If that rant didn’t drive you away, then be sure to read all the other Conventional Wisdom comics, and maybe even donate on Patreon!)

I like Meiko OK as a character, but god did I hate how she was used in Tri. Or that she was IN Tri. Just...ugh. Only plus side is we got Ordinemon out of it, and Ordinemon is awesome.

Like a lot of Tri, Meiko is alright in concept, botched in execution.
