“The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.”

Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars

I have decided to base the main female characters of my future fantasy books on the classic anime character archetypes. One example is the Bakadere archetype, which is the type of character who is clumsy and stupid, which makes them the comic relief of the story. A prime example of a Bakadere would be Sasha Blouse from Attack on Titan. Sasha was a lovable idiot who possessed a certain charisma to her. The moment after she was introduced, Sasha became a popular internet meme and a fan favorite character. I am planning to make one of the female characters in my fantasy series a Bakadere who possesses the same level of charm as Sasha Blouse.
