basically what happened, except this is only like the tip of the iceberg of their feelings tho
Boomer is attracted to Buttercup because all he sees is someone who can defend herself and he isn’t looking too deeply into her attacks. He likes the bright colors and the loud sounds since he’s not the type to analyze a fight.
Brick paid more attention to Bubbles because he thought that Bubbles was a sissy. Her normally cutesy and nice attitude made him underestimate just how powerful Bubbles actually. He can’t say that Bubbles is just too nice and frail because now he knows that she can beat his ass any day.
Butch was watching Blossom fight because he used to see her as a stuck up nerd that is graceful and tidy. Seeing her get rough and dirty makes Blossom seem less intimidating and out of his league. In my headcanon, Butch is closest with Brick and admires his leadership. But as he watches her, she takes leadership to a whole other level. In other words, he really admires her
but again this is just the tip of the iceberg
