I hope this is okay, call me out if it isn't, but I will be posting some articles from the DP club I posted onto this spot.
My opinions on Rapunzel have changed a lot. When I joined Fanpop, she was second on my list. Eventually she moved up to first. After that, she made a bunch of drops, until she eventually reached the eleventh spot on my list. So I've gone from loving her to death to disliking her. Oh, well. I might as well explain why I dislike her then.
I dislike Rapunzel mostly because she's an overdone character and I feel like she's shoved onto me a lot as a character. You're supposed to see her as this amazing character who is easily relatable because of how she has many hobbies, and well rounded, and (apparently) funny and such. Well, that's why I feel there's this irritating, "pressure" to like her. She's an overdone character. She has.. Everything. There's at least one thing she does that you can probably relate to.
She's not interesting. She bores me a lot, honestly. There's not anything special about her or anything that stands out in her personality, it's just really bland. Whereas I can see at least one or two things in most of the other princesses that I either admire or it is something that stands out in their character. Even other Disney Princesses like Belle and Mulan have at least one quality that makes them stand out. Rapunzel doesn't have that.
Her personality bothers me as well. It's just.. Irritating and even obnoxious at times. Like how they tried too hard to make her relatable, they tried too hard to make her funny and have a good personality. Just like how her personality is bland, it's not entertaining either. Obviously Tangled is meant to have a lot of humor in it, it's one of the more, "comedic" Disney Princess films. But Rapunzel is not funny, honestly. Her humor just annoys me so much.
Overall, I really dislike Rapunzel. She's uninteresting, boring, annoying, overdone, and all around a poorly done character. Yes, I am actually saying this about my former favorite Disney Princess, believe it or not, but now I strongly dislike her. I'm done with having her as my favorite, welcome to the bottom three Rapunzel, where you shall stay! (Well, possibly. xP)
