I love how detailed you go into your answers!!! that being said I was wondering what your thought were on the comparison of Spike and Mugen? I understand for obvious reasons that they were dubbed by the same voice actor but what do you think their best shared qualities were? thank you! :)
First off, thank you! I like seeing these asks, mostly because they’re interesting, but also because I love hearing what other people have to say in response. :)
To answer your question, I think Spike and Mugen’s best qualities were their smart-mouthed tendencies and somewhat lackluster approach to violence, fighting, or death. Neither really seemed to take life’s BS too seriously; they were always jumping headfirst into danger, because they were confident that they could succeed. Now, of course, this confidence is also a serious display of recklessness and maybe even immaturity, but I’ve always had a soft spot for hardheaded characters who are equal parts sarcastic and tough when it comes to dealing with the problems they run into along their journeys.
In summary, they’re both badasses, and I think being badass is probably the most entertaining thing a character can be (if said characters’ badassery is written well). Thank you for your question!
