    Malty S Melomarc from Tate no Yuusha.

    I have not seen of any proof of a redeemable quality, nor of a motivation of hers that I can sympathize with.

    EDIT: Correction in the name.

    I may have a new one cooking up, but we'll have to see how things go.

    The princess from Nidome no Yuusha is pretty fucking bad.
    I'm working on a Goddess of Neutrality who is supposed to be the most hateworthy existence (who is also simultaneously worshipped by pretty much every god level character) in the entire multiverse but let's see if the final product stays that way.

    It's been a long time since I read DICE but I actually didn't hate Eunjoo that much (is that how you spell her name?). I have never read Remarried Empress, but I certainly hate Rachel.

    Thank goodness for the edit later, I thought Melty was gonna turn evil later in the story or something. :blobfearful:

    That being said, you guys do realize that Rachel at the start of ToG is like, 14, right? I mean, she does bad stuff when she's older too but 14 is still really young guys

    Oml Artista's character development was soooo bad. When she got her second chance, I thought she would be all bitter and closed-off, and then they'll give us a revenge-filled story where we see the MC rise above her station and give payback to all that wronged her (kinda like Rebirth of the Malicious Empress). Evidently, NONE of that happened. She's still as naive and dense as before. And, here's the kicker, she fricking falls in love AGAIN with the one person she shouldn't have fallen in love with!! That fricking gets rid of the minimal character development she *did* have with her whole "I wanna be a knight so I won't have to become the Empress" thing. The entire story was literally some sort of abuser narrative and I really hated the entire thing.

    honestly, i dont think there is a "worst" in characters.
    i mean yes, all these characters are unlikeable and bad but,,, there will always be a character in existence which is worse or there will be a character in the future who will one-up these characters. its like a fight. and then there are characters who are just as bad as them, and then the place for the "worst" character is tied,,,
    so yes. these characters are bad, and i dont like them. and i think everyone also doesnt like them, but the calling them "the worst female character in existence"? there will always be one who is worse, and then after that there is a character worse than the worst character,,,

    Honestly I have a long list of characters I don't like, but when it comes to female characters they seem to always be the same: obsessed with the ml, superficial or power hungry. That might just be because I read novels that resemble each other, but I think it's also because writers tend to just write female characters that the reader is not supposed to like as caricatures of the worst traits a woman can have. IDK, there just seems to be much more male characters that are not supposed to be liked but they are still complex and sympathetic to an extent. But when a female character is written to not be liked, if she has a tragic backstory it's treated as nothing more than background, instead focusing on how awful and full of herself she is.

    Disclaimer: I'm only reading the manhwa (chapter 82) and not the novel.

    To be honest, while I didn't like her at first, she does become an - at least somewhat - authentic character after learning more about her background. Her motivations and goals become clear after seeing how she lived before arriving at the palace and how she's being blackmailed and pressured after coming to the palace while at the same time seeing how the comfortable palace life "corrupts" her (for a lack of better words). While she still may be a villainous character and continues to go further down that path, at least she isn't as one-dimensional and flat as she was at the start of the story. I'm still occasionally asking myself though if she's either trying to be cunning or delusional and what pisses me of about female characters in general is talking in third person about yourself to pretend to be cute. It's just really, really, really~ cringy.

    On the other hand, I don't understand Sovieshu. He's somewhat flat and one-dimensional and I don't understand his motivations and goals. Maybe that problem is dealt with later in the story (though I doubt it), but at least for now, he's the worst character of the manhwa/novel.
