Fangirl Obsession Targets by KittyCowLexa Fangirl Obsession Targets by KittyCowLexa
Edit: 12-10-12
Oh man! This has gotten more comments than I expected it to, and I've really enjoyed reading them! Thank you all so much! lol! It's actually a relief to know that the world isn't COMPLETELY filled with rabid fangirls. :phew::XD:



In case you can't read what it says on the chalk board, it reads:

"Fangirl Elimination Project

Sephiroth ✔
Shadow
Lord Shen ✔
Lord Girahim ✔
Greed-ler ✔
Vanitas ✔"

Yep, Shadow is absent from the meeting. =P

IN case you hadn't already guessed, this picture is supposed to be a meeting of creepy villains who are the targets of unhealthy fangirl obsessions. :iconblankstarenodplz:

BUT before I begin my rant, I'll talk a bit about the art. :iconthatsrightplz:

I had a lot of fun drawing this piece. :XD: The colors ended up balancing themselves a lot better than I had thought they would. :D It was interesting to draw so many kinds of different characters. I wasn't sure I'd be able to draw Shen, but I think he came out pretty well. ^^ Also, I love my white gel pen.

So the dark side really DOES have cookies! ...they just may not want to share them. =P

So...any theories about what Vanitas is saying to Shen?

Now begins my rant about each of these villains. If you obsess over any of them and are easily offended, now would be the time to stop reading. ^^;

*ahem* So, I think that I'll start the rant in order from the least to the most creepy (in my own personal opinion) starting with Shadow.

Shadow: Okay, now don't consider me a totally hypocrite for this one, but I used to have a crush on Shadow. I don't think that it's abnormal or unhealthy to like him, but what gets scary is when one takes it just too far. Liking him as a reformed(ish) character who's still dark and mysterious...? Totally understandable. :nod: But liking him as a sadistic, brooding, power hungry creep with absolutely NO compassion? Creepy. Just down right creepy. Seriously, what's the appeal there besides...um...well, nevermind what besides. >__>

Sephiroth:
I still haven't pinned down exactly what it is that makes Sephiroth SO desirable to some people. Okay, so he has a nice build. And a girly face. So does everyone else in the Final Fantasy games. Is it the long silver hair? The one dark wing? The monotone way of speaking? What? Personally I find him to be exceedingly boring. Seriously, he's not even interesting as a villain like a lot of these others are. He's the dark side of Cloud. Cloud kills him, continues to have dark thoughts, and Sephiroth comes back AGAIN! *gasp* We ALL have dark thoughts sometimes. Can you imagine if everyone had their own personal "Seohiroth"? We'd all be so preoccupied with a never-ending battle to defeat our dark selves that we'd never get anything done!

Greed-ler: Mind you, I'm not talking about the "Once-ler" in general. No, I'm talking specifically about greedy Once-ler, or "Greed-ler". Again, I can understand people liking the Once-ler (heck, a few years ago, I probably would have had a crush on him =P) but to be SO attracted to his greedy self? He's a total jerk! A scumbag! He'd steal candy from a baby! He'd steal the coins off a dead man's eyes and then sue for theift! And anyway, last I looked, there was a whole army of people who hated anyone who cut down a single tree. So what's with the obsession with the guy who chops down ALL of the trees without a second thought...and all for the sake of GREED! When did GREED become so attractive? I mean, am I the only one who finds it totally repulsive or what!?

Shen: You guys, Shen is a bird. ...in case you haven't noticed. So without having the excuse of "he's hot" (at least, I HOPE that excuse has never been used O_O) what's the appeal there? Don't get me wrong, he's an AWESOME villain! They did a really good job making him a totally realistic psychopath. But...what is there to like about him? He's...he's...a PSYCHO! Seriously, don't you just want to strangle him? He gets some kind of sick pleasure at watching people be blown to bits!!! That. Is. CREEPY! If you knew someone like that in real life, I don't think you would want to be their love interest, now would you? ...at least, I hope not.

Vanitas: Vanitas is a personification of the darkness in Ven's heart. Not like Sephiroth, though. All of the darkness was taken OUT of Ventus because he refused to use it, and that's when Vanitas was born. He's like...like your typical school bully made 50 times worse and a murderer. There is absolutely NO compassion there. NONE! At ALL!! In fact I think that he's too preoccupied with causing pain and suffering to even THINK about anything else. ...and if THAT is why fangirls go for him, I think that the world is a little more messed up than I thought. :no: Let's hope it's just because of his...looks? Okay, so he looks just like Sora, but why not go for Sora if that's the case? Doesn't his creepy expression just totally ruin anything that MIGHT be even slightly attractive? I think so. :stare:

Girahim: Oh. My. Gosh. Oh my gosh. Seriously, guys. ....seriously. Girahim is a DEMON!! YUCK!! I mean...what else is there to SAY!? He looks more reptilian than he does human, and his skin looks like it feels like ice to the touch, and his EYES!! UGH!! You know, as far as villains go, I'd say he was pretty well designed, but...but this is almost overkill. And yet I've seen many fangirls who are interested in him! WHAT!? EEWW!! :iconidontloveitplz:

That is all. :meow:

Shen? Really? There are Shen fangirls? ...I wouldn't have guessed. Guess I shouldn't be too surprised, considering stuff like Hatoful Boyfriend exists...

Oh lord...but seriously, this is blast from the fangirly past I'd rather not revisit. :XD: I crushed on Sephiroth and especially Shadow like crazy when I first discovered them, and I think because of that they tend to annoy me now. Right now, I just started Skyward Sword and I'm already in love with Girahim's character--not that kind fangirling, hell to the no, I mean like he's so flamingly FABulous and delightfully creepy and oh my gosh I just can't help but be intrigued by disquieting characters like this. :lol:

I agree whole heartedly. I bet the only reason that the fangirls like sephiroth is because of his nice muscular body . His face is a tad feminine for my tastes ( In some scenes sephiroth almost looks like a girls face photoshopped on a male body.XD), but you gotta admit he has a great body. I would never excuse sephiroth of his evil deeds just cuz of his nice body, that's pretty creepy. Have you ever played final fantasy 7? Because there sephiroth actually has a personality, a backstory and is a great villain. I won't spoil anything for you if you haven't played yet (spoilers are evil).


WTF Ghirahim has fangirls? Ewww. I haven't played skyward sword, but he seems soo creepy and nasty. The Shen fangirls the creepiest in my book because he isn't even humanoid like the others on the list. They don't even have the excuse of him being sexy to overlook his G evil deeds .I can't believe Shadow has fangirls. Eww. He's not even remotely sexy. (unless you're a furry which is creepy).

The funny thing is if any of these villains were real, the fangirls would probably run away really fast away from them.

I WANT A SEPHIROTH!!! PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE!!!
it would make my life 10000x more exciting.

i am proud to say i dont have a sick obsession with any of these characters. i like some of them, maybe wish to meet some (boredom does that to u), but i am not in love with any.
i am with u on... really all of this. especially the shadow one. characters with dark sides are cool, but i cant stand to see anyone obsess over one person, real or fiction.

Wait, someone's crushing on a character that DR. SEUSS made?! How is that even physically possible?!
And Vanitas was never attractive to me because of his weird laugh...

Yeah, it's his creepiness that kills it for me too. :fear: I used to think that Sora was cute (I probably still would if he were just a teensy bit older) but Vanitas... Well, being a creepy jerk always ruins any possible physical attraction. At least, in my opinion it does. :no:

Shen IS awesome! Now it'd be one thing if I were an actual peahen, but I'm not, so that's that (and no way will I ever become a furry- they're creepy!). I crush on actual humans, like NBA point guards. Now they're hot!!! ^^ The only other character I recognize is Once-ler (or in this case, Greed-ler), but he's too tall and lanky for me anyway.

Yeah, I'll have to agree. He's definitely my favorite KFP character, and I honestly don't think he'd be much of a romantic anyway lol

(Yeah, we'll leave it at that.)

lol Agreed! Anyone looking like that would just be weird next to me. I'm skinny but I'm pretty short lol

because of the fanbase I tend to shy away from Sonic and ew the boy in FF are too girly for me to like. I don't find Sephiroth attractive, he's like a flat chested girl, I mean if you muted his voice and didn't know nothing about the character, I would like he's a girl XDDDDD

Shadow is okay, but I grew up with Sonic, so the little blue guy will always be in my heart. I'm a hardcore gamer so I tend to look at video games as a fun franchise and not a pairing breeding ground.

As for Shen, I think he's cool for a villain but I don't think he's hot, he's...like you said is a bird. I am guilty for making peahens...but I really dropped them as the love interest and just simple characters of their own original story (plus I hated them being with Shen, so I was fine dropping them from their pairing), I do ship canonxcanon, so I paired Shen with Viper and have a fanfic on them. I am more dedicated to this pairing because, trust I like to use psychology on Shen's part. And I have found really Chinese information helping this pairing stand. "Without good, there can't be no evil. Without evil, there cannot be good." ^U^

LOL! I agree completely. :XD: And Sephiroth is especially girly, even by FF standards. =P

My little brother and I have role played as Sonic and Tails since I can remember! :XD: There have been a lot of cool new characters added, but I agree; Sonic and Tails are still my favs. :love:
"Pairing breeding ground"! :rofl: I think that sums it up right there! :XD: Man, I need to make a stamp about that or something. =P

Ah, I can see your point with ShenXViper. Sort of a yin and yang concept, right? :D Personally, I don't ship anyone in KFP. But hey, whatever floats your boat! Er...ship. :dummy: Please excuse the bad pun. :lol:

I could not agree with you more, Lexa! :iconohnoseplz: Now, I've yet to see the Lorax movie and never read the book when I was a child. So I'm not familiar with Once-ler/Greed-ler, but I know his basic story. I also only know Sephiroth from his minor role in KH2, but once again I get the point of his story. And if my Wii wasn't on the fritz, I probably would have played Skyward Sword by now and would know more about Girahim. (Because I'm always hearing fantastic things that game.)
But as far as Shen and Vanitas go, I love them for what they are. Villains. Sick, twisted villains. The thing they do best is being bad, and if they were any other way like the way the fangirls make them they wouldn't be nearly as good! I like a story to have a good villain, and I can even understand fans joking around about how much they like/love certain villains, but some people take it WAY too far. :stare:

On another note, excellent job on the picture! :clap: You did a brilliant job on Shen! I can imagine that that guy would be a major pain to draw! Nice job on Sephiroth's one wing too, even though I know you get a lot of practice on those because of WiR. :XD: Love Greed-ler's suit! :la: Then Girahim looks great and you did wonderfully with the detail in Vanitas' outfit and his spiky hair! :D

KittyCowLexa Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I haven't seen The Lorax either (though, it's up there on my list of movies I want to see :la:) but, like you, I've seen enough about Once-ler/Greed-ler to know what I'm talking about I think. =P Actually, I'm about where you're at as far as knowing about Sepheroth and Girahim too, but I've seen enough fangirling to make me sick. :stare:
EXACTLY! Shen and Vanitas are EXCELLENT villains! :la: Since I was a child, I've always had a sort of fascination with villains (maybe that explains why I'm so sick? XD) but I've never had a "thing" for their villainy. And I'm only interested in ones who accurately display a certain side of humanity. That's why I find Sephiroth so boring, and I don't even want to KNOW anything else about Girahim! :fear:

I'm just glad I'm not the only one who sees something wrong here! :noes:

Thanks so much! :dance: He IS a pain to draw, but it's actually kind of amusing to draw his squinty-eyed expression. :rofl: lol! Yeah, I really do have WiR to thank. =P Though, perhaps I know too much about wings, considering the fact that Sephiroth's wing drives me crazy because his secondary feathers are ridiculously short. :XD:
Greed-ler's suit was fun to draw! :la: My white gel pen was helpful when it came to the stripes. :D Girahim was probably harder to draw then Shen, and I was glad when I was done drawing him. =P Glad to hear I did well on Vanitas' outfit and hair! ^_^ It was tricky. Darn you gravity defying hair! :shakefist:
Thanks again! :glomp:

Me too. :stare: People like that reeeally need to get out a little more often.

Lol! :XD: Exactly! There are those certain villains that you just love to hate! =P I often find the ones that are a bit of a psychopath interesting too, just because they're so unpredictable and you're always wondering what they're going to do next! :ohnoes: But those characters are only fun in fiction. In real life, they would be a horrible, terrifying monster!
But I agree, the ones that sometimes show a sign of humanity are often the more ones that are more "likable", for lack of a better term. :nod: (That is, unless it's a sudden, unrealistic, total change of heart that seems unlike the character. :stare:) I can't think of any examples right now, but I know the kind you're talking about! :XD:

You're welcome! :dummy: Probably so! :la: I'd like to do some KFP art eventually, so perhaps then I'll actually get a chance to draw Shen and see for myself! :D
Oh really? I'd never noticed that about Sephiroth's wing! :rofl: Then again, I guess I was probably too busy complaining about "How could he have POSSIBLY killed me so fast?" to notice. :XD:
I know! :shakefish: That outfit is mostly the reason I've yet to draw Vanitas, but I have enough problems with that hair when I draw Sora as it is! I don't want to make it even more difficult by drawing it with that nightmare of an outfit too! :ohnoes:
Welcome! :hug:

LOLOL! That comment seriously made me laugh out loud. :rofl: Yeah, they REALLY do. :XD:

YES! :noes: I've met one person like that (ya couldn't tell it just by talking to them) and in real life it is anything BUT interesting. It's just...creepy.
But in fiction, it's fascinating! That's one of the reasons I like developing Friedrich's character. :plotting:

(Yeaaaahhh... that sudden, unrealistic change just totally kills it. :no:) That aspect of humanity is what gives them their motives and makes them interesting. Because the interesting thing about villains is asking yourself "okay, WHY do they think like that? What makes them do this?" That sort of thing. :la:

I think you'd have fun with it. :D He's not nearly as hard to draw as he looks. :nod:
LOL! I think I probably only noticed because usually it was me watching my brother try over and over again to defeat Sephiroth. XD
The outfit actually isn't as hard as it looks if you don't obsess over detail. Which I had to try REALLY hard to stop myself from doing in this picture. XD What I did was draw a few dark lines with my black colored pencil, then colored over it lightly with black, then colored over that with dark blue or red wherever it called for it. :nod:
