The toxic fans and haters are to blame for this brutal, irrational world we live in.
Video Game Character Fandoms
Edelgard is a main character in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. She is the princess and future ruler of the Adrestian Empire. Possessing a Crest of Seiros, she is the leader of the Black Eagles in the Officers Academy. Born in 1162, Edelgard is the fourth daughter of Emperor Ionius and also has a toxic following due to how she is considered the most popular character in her game.
They blindly loathe on the Blue Lions and the Golden Deer without giving them a chance. This is simply because they are not Black Eagles. In fact, some would even try to Abhor Dimitri and Claude without giving them a chance. It can be cmopared to sayong one only cares about Optimus Prime and refusing to give Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ultra Magnus, and even Optimus Primal chances.
The fans only join the Black Eagles just to see Edelgard.
Shipping wars. No more needs to be said here.
They treat her like she was some divine goddess and will try to lash out at those who disagree.
Some would believe that Three Houses is mainly about Edelgard when it's mostly not. That goes to show you that they forget about Dimitri, Claude and even the Avatar, Byleth.
When it comes to Super Smash Bros., many of her fans would be boastful to the point that they will think that Edelgard is the only Fire Emblem character to be in that franchise. While it is true that she is a good candidate for Smashing, they fail to realize that other people want another character to be in instead of her such as Byleth, Dimitri and Claude.
They somehow only care about her looks instead of her actually character.
They call her perfect when just like every single character in existance, she also has flaws. For instance: While her goals may be great, her actions are not as great.
They call the Black Eagles a "The Canon Route" when people prefer other routes.
Like the fandoms of Thanos, Monika, and Dio, there has been pages that claim that "Edelgard did nothing wrong" which is rather silly if you get what we mean.
Some don't even have a valid reason to hate Edelgard. On example is how this post claims that she is often called "a fucking bitch" or "stupid asshole"
Many of them only care about the Blue Lions and the Golden Deer without giving her a chance.
Whenever they would see someone wanting her to be playable in Super Smash Bros., many of the haters would go ballistic. (Why though? Besides, the "Too many Fire Emblem characters" excuse is not a valid one.
They started to despise how she was portrayed in her character development during the game. (She is only a character. No one is ever perfect!)
Some hate the Black Eagles because of the route being short.
Ever since her character development in the said game where she comes from, many of her haters would call her a Nazi because of her character development. (While she may have done some bad things, but let's be real. Do we really need to call her a Nazi after what she has done? Besides, how is a fictional character's action be as bad as real-life Nazis?)
If that's not enough, they even make dumb comparisons to AdolfHiter. Yes, the same man who was the leader of the Nazi party. Anyways, how is a Fire Emblem character comparable to a tyrannical dictator who existed in history? (We wish we were making this up, but no).
