I always thought the new and original characters were the most broken characters like
Steven Quartz Unvierse has to live the fact that his mom, Rose Quartz, have commited some dark acts in the past
Star Butterfly lost almost everything in season 2
Marceline Abadeer lost her mother, her first and true friend, Simon lost his sanity for wearing the crown too much, and what’s worst that she has to become what she hates the most, a vampire
Ice King lost his sanity and forgotten everything he once knew himself
But probably the current most broken cartoon character out of all of them is Samurai Jack
What makes this man such a broken figure is he used to have a strong will that keep him moving, always had hope that he’ll find his way home, and always fight for justice. Even though it seem bad at first, but he finds another way, like he always had.
But now, after 50 years without aging alone, he lost himself in this forsaken time. He lost his honor as a samurai, lost his way to what to fight for and lost his faith to find his way back to the past
Every time portal is destroyed
He lost his sword, the only weapon that could defeat Aku
Really horrible PTSD
And what’s worst is he thinks of performing Harakiri (suicide)
Out of all cartoon characters in today world, I find Samurai Jack, the most broken out of all cartoon characters and deserve the most hugs
Well since it’s online anyway, I guess it’s time to share. This is my piece for the upcoming Nucleus show, and I’m so excited to share a space with all of my amazing teammates! Hope some of you get to see it in person!
