You know what I love about Chloé and Marinette’s rivalry with one another?
It’s not about Adrien.
Sure, Adrien doesn’t help matters at all, but there was already bad blood between Marinette and Chloé waaaay before he got involved, and 90% of their arguments have absolutely nothing to do with him. Instead we have Marinette getting pissed because Chloé’s being a bully, or Chloé being upset because Marinette steals the attention away from her.
Their romantic rivalry is secondary to the fact that they just don’t see eye to eye, and they’re both stubborn and passionate girls who refuse to back down and let the other one win. That’s such a rare thing to see in cartoons about teenaged girls, and I enjoy watching it play out and seeing the two of them bounce off one another.
