Here are some characters that I really like but nobody pays attention on them. Let's begin.
Helga Katrina Sinclair(Atlantis: The Lost Empire)
I love her! Firstly, she's a total bad*ss. She is maybe one of the strongest disney females and she can be very sexy at the same time. I believe she has a very interesting personality. Helga at the beginning appears to be tough and aggressive. I admire a lot her determination and her strength. But at the end of the movie, she saves Atlantis by preventing Rourke from escaping with the heart of Atlantis. But why did she do that? We can assume that she did this because she wanted to take revenge from Rourke (he was the one that dropped her). This shows how tough and mean she is, she won't let anyone beat her, which makes me love her even more. But, another possibility is that she might actually be a nice person deep inside, so she wanted to help Atlantis, which is also good, because that makes her a heroine! To conclude, I'm not sure if that counts as an advantage, but I really love the way she's drawn.
You might say she's boring e.t.c. but I really like her. She's a true friend to Pocahontas and always supports her. Even when she said to Kocoum that Pocahontas is in danger, which caused so much trouble, she was honest and told Poca that it was her fault. Also, I like how Nakoma is so responsible, serious, prudent and overprotective. She's the voice of reason to Pocahontas and that makes me like her so much, because I can relate to her. I'm usually the voice of reason to my friends... In concusion, it's true that she's not the most interesting Disney character but she's loyal and caring and I think she should get more love.
Yao, Ling and Chien Po (Mulan)
Yeah, I know they're three but it would take me too much time to put each of them seperately in a different paragraph. These guys are well-knows but nobody mentions how amazing they are. And when we speak about best friends, we say "Oh only Tiana and Pocahontas have a best friend", well what about Mulan? Anyway, Yao is my favourite. He's a lot like Grumpy. He's very aggressive and wants to pass for a tough guy, but deep inside he's so nice, caring, loyal and romantic (as we see in Mulan 2). He's also clumsy and his quotes are hilarious. Ling is very friendly, sweet, funny and humorous. Finally, Chien Po is the peaceful, calm and gentle guy that reminds me a friend of mine, because he always thinks of food... To conclude, these three are very funny to watch and I believe people should recognise how important they are for the story.
Tamora Jean Calhoun (Wreck-it-Ralph)
She's really tough, strict, bossy and determinate. Also, she's brave and strong. I admire the fact that she's a leader and a warrior. And I love how she speaks to her soldiers, her quotes always make me laugh like when she says "Fear' is a four-letter word, ladies! You want to go peepee in your big-boy slacks, keep it to yourself!". She's very developed, too. Her painful past has made her heart frozen and I like how she tries to protect herself and refuses to "let it go" (frozen heart, let it go....I'm watching too much Frozen aren't I?) because sometimes I can relate to that but at the end we see her sensitive and loving side.
Grandmother Fa (Mulan)
I adore her! She's hilarious! I love her spunky, humorous, outspoken, honest and feisty atitude. She seems like a tough, wise woman that isn't afraid to speak her mind. But she's also very caring towards Mulan and wishes to the ancestores for her to succeed. And I also love how even though she's old, she has a thing for handsome men (and why not?), especially when she says "Whoo! Sign me up for the next war!" I always roll on the floor laughing, I don't know, I just find her quotes extremely funny. People should show her more love imo.
So this is the end of this article. I'm planning to write about more underrated disney characters, because there are so many that deserve recognition. I hope you enjoyed my article!
