Two individuals who are significantly linked together (as friends, siblings, rivals, etc.) and have contrasting personalities and approaches to the world.
The Red Oni is associated with passion, wildness, and defiance. A red oni character is extroverted, enthusiastic, determined, and filled with a zest for life. The Blue Oni is associated with serenity, control and observance of authority. A blue oni character is proud, traditional, and introverted.
While many expressions of this trope play it straight, it is also not uncommon for the Blue Oni and Red Oni to mix traits.
so, we all know that originally Tulio & Miguel were meant to be a married couple. and we have them saying these parting words, which’s kinda funny and all-
in Russian dubbing the above convo goes WAY better and really changes the story.
it starts with Tulio, saying: “Well, we’ve been friends…”
then Miguel adds, quite timidly: “I just want you to know… I’ve been admiring you for a long time-”
and Tulio ends with: “Same here.”
so, it’s like Miguel wants to confess his eternal love for Tulio, then they’re interrupted, then there’s Chel, and then Miguel goes all nuts and angry bc he had no chance to say ‘i love you, pardner’ (and it was kinda obvious to me when i was a kid, okay, it was literally the only plot i knew back then!)
