Robert is such a good character. His route is possibly the best in the entire game, simply with how it handles his character, and gives an unexpected but amazing ending at the same time. I think it's no contest who my favorite dad i-
I wanted to make appreciation drawings for a very interesting, relevant, and important character that is sadly, so widely overlooked by the fandom. The guy who literally has all the answers to our questions about the Butterfly Monarchy and Mewni history. the guy who plays such a pivotal role in the show by teaching Star to understand her magic. the guy who is currently stolen away by Ludo right now. We cant forget him.
The thing about the season 2 finale I like most is the fact David wasn’t like “Oh I’m sure it was a printing mistake!” with Max’s papers. When Max says his parents didn’t care, David doesn’t jump to “That’s not true! They love you, all parents love their children, etc, etc…”
He stops and takes Max somewhere away from where he’d have to pretend and told him, word for word, “I’m sorry your parents don’t care enough, Max.” He doesn’t deny it like most adults do. He accepts the fact that Max knows what’s up with his parents and just says. Okay. I’m sorry it’s like that.
I’m 100% sure that Max has been told far too often that he’s over-reacting. It’s not that bad. I’m sure they care, they just dont show it like most parents do. People label him as an angry problem child when he’s just reacting to what has probably been years of feeling neglected. Then all of a sudden comes David, who says that he understands how max feels, and that it’s okay for him to feel the way he does.
