I contemplated not answering this for a while, but after seeing enough Amy hate for one lifetime I don’t really feel like letting cowards on anon try and bully me into their way of thinking. So here we go!
1. If Amy is a bitch because she speaks her mind and doesn’t let anyone walk all over her, good. I like characters who are headstrong. I like that she’s not afraid to say what she means and still maintain a big heart and her loving nature.
2. And if she’s a bitch just because she’s ~catty~ and ~bratty~ — GOOD, that means she has viable character faults and it makes her more realistic and balanced. Characters with no notable faults are boring, flat and static and will never steal the show or catch the attention of anyone. Writing interesting, flawed characters is important, because it makes the characters relatable.
3. IF THIS IS BECAUSE SHE HAS A CRUSH ON SONIC I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL COME DOWN THERE AND PUNCH YOU MYSELF. Her feelings for a boy do not make her a bad person. Her feelings for a boy do not invalidate her existence as a character. She’s 12 years old and she has no portrayed maternal figure, which means she’s figuring this crush thing all on her own. And Sonic does not hate her and he does not dislike her, so I don’t think he minds her company that much. If anything, he is mildly uncomfortable because Sonic does not do well with touchy-feely-lovey-dovey stuff because he’s SONIC and he doesn’t really do romance. That does not mean that he hates her, and it doesn’t mean he doesn’t like her because Amy’s been shown in canon to be one of his closest friends. That goes for Tails and Knuckles, too. They laugh and sigh sometimes, but they still have her back and she has their back, too.
4. Just because I’ve seen this argument before — No, no, she’s not shallow. Stop. She loved Sonic all the same when he was a werehog. She wouldn’t let Sonic attack Gamma and stood in his way (the boy she loves and idolizes, mind you!). And yes, though we like to ignore Sonic 06’s existence, she still let Elise give Sonic the kiss of life without retaliation because she understood that Sonic’s life was more important than some stupid little display of affection.
5. She is not a damsel in distress and she can fight SHE WIELDS A GIANT FRIGGEN HAMMER SHE IS THE BADASS NORMAL OF THE GROUP.
6. Watch some anime some time if you’re ragging on her portayal in Sonic X. She reeks of anime humor. She is straight up anime. So, so anime.
