I thought I give this meme a try. I'll also give a small explanation on why. For the most part, I don't mind Damsel in Distress topic. Of course, it depends how its done.
Here are my picks:
Favorite DID: Maria Renard (Castlevania: Rondo of Blood & The Dracula X Chronicles)
While this was short, she was still kidnapped along with three other girls from Shaft. If you're able to find where she's being held, you can also play as her.
Despised DID: Asuna Yuuki (Sword Art Online)
While I didn't mind Asuna being a DID, it's the way it was done and who was responsible that made me not like her as one. If you've seen the anime, then you know what I'm taking about.
Overrated DID: Lucy Heartfila (Fairy Tail)
Again, didn't mind, but the way it was done was overboard to me. Here's the thing:
First time - not perfect, but okay.
Second time - alright and I get it, but didn't work for me.
By the time she was targeted a third time (haven't seen the whole thing yet), I just checked out. At that point, I was like, "Anime, give the girl a break."
Underrated DID: Lyria (Granblue Fantasy)
While her story is basic, Lyria is one that I followed because of her special power that the Erste Empire are after. I just happen to like that and her character.
For the Movies, I chose ones that has that topic.
Favorite DID Film: The Mummy (1999 FIlm)
Mainly because of the topic at the end of the movie which has a cool rescue scene and a little funny fight at the beginning of the rescue.
Despised DID Film: Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Again because of the topic at the final battle. While it was okay (to say the lest), it was overshadowed by everything else. Mainly, becuase I don't like the movie.
Favorite Rescue: Rescuing the hostages and Oi-lan (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys)
In addition to being one of favorite episodes of the series, the final showdown was just as epic. As well as rescuing Oi-lan at the final act.
Despised Rescue: Rescuing Zuzu, Celina, Rin, and Lulu (Yugioh Arc-V)
The good news is by Episode 127, Zuzu and her counterparts were free from the Parasite Monster. The bad news is that they were still imprisoned and disappeared in Episode 134, making this "rescue" pretty pointless.
Note: Too be fair, Zuzu does come back, along with her counterparts (though they're now within Zuzu), but it doesn't help in my opinion.
If you agree or disagree with my picks, that's fine. This is just my opinion.
