i have a longer rant bc one of the responses said that the akumatized victims are to be blamed as well but here’s a short, witty version instead
the thing is, once the akuma finds the target, the victim can’t just tell this to the papillon, ‘hey, mysterious voice that speaks in my head, i don’t really feel that negative so can you please don’t akumatize me? i’ll get over it eventually.‘
what show is this?
i would love to see a show where the papillon tries to convince his potential victims to fall under his clutches but they are all like, ‘nah, we’ll be fine. we just want to release stress. this is normal behavior. go away, butterfly. shoo, shoo.‘
the butterflies inside the lair are probably like, ‘HAH, he fails again!‘
‘bob, shut up!‘
