Ford is Really a Damsel in Distress
You know, for all of Ford’s awesomeness he actually hasn’t ever saved the day, not even once. Instead he usually gets himself captured or incapacitated, leaving someone else to bail him out.
This is just a pattern we’ve noticed with Ford.
He got trapped in the portal, and even though he looked extremely epic coming out of the portal,
it never would have been possible without Stan.
Even though Ford looked so cool in Dungeons, Dungeons and More Dungeons
he still gets captured by the game characters, and Stan has to save the day.
Stan yet again saves the day in The Stanchurian Candidate when all Ford did was fix a light bulb and give the kids a magic tie.
(This was like the best gif of Stan’s heroism I could find, leave me alone)
In Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future, Ford does all this awesome stuff like:
But in the end, he gets captured by alien drones and has to be saved by Dipper.
And the crowning moment of fail is in Weirdmegeddon Part 1.
There’s like no way he’ll be able to save himself, leaving the other characters to pick up the slack.
All in all, Ford looks capable and badasss, but he’s really just a damsel in distress.
