CW: Cheating

(Anonymous) 2014-04-29 11:40 pm (UTC)(link)
fans believe he’ll cheat on his wife because of event tiles that don’t mean anything character development-wise

If we're talking about his father-son talks with Morgan where it's implied that he's been cheating on Robin, those aren't generic unlike most of the other parent-child event tile talks. In other words, Inigo cheating on his wife (at least, localization-wise)* is canon and IC for him.

Also, I know Inigo/f!Robin isn't an official ship, but since dialogue shows he's reluctant to give up skirt-chasing in nearly half of his S supports and FP3's ending, it's safe to assume Inigo isn't going to give it up right away the minute he enters a relationship. Though, I don't doubt he'll eventually grow out of his old ways, it's just that I feel it'd take time sometime after Grima's defeat.

*To be fair on Inigo, he's not as unsure about giving up skirt-chasing in the Japanese version as he is in the localization:

The localization did indeed change a few things, mainly because of values dissonance (giving Olivia a more mature-sounding voice, making Maribelle more sassy, changing bento to pies, Gregor to a Ruskie). I guess the American version of "awkward womanizing dweeb" is a bit different from the Japanese? I dunno.

I still think it's unfair for other fans to bash Inigo just because old habits are hard to break. He's still a teenager, after all...maybe a very young college-age. He's young, needs time to get his bearings and learn to be himself. I like to imagine present!Olivia and his dad and sibling if he has one will take the time to teach him that it's okay to be himself and he doesn't need to put on an act all the time.

/tl;dr Inigo isn't even my favorite kid and I get kinda defensive of him.

to be totally honest, I'm not going to fault people for disliking Inigo for cheating. even if there are reasons for him doing what he does that makes him appear sympathetic, that doesn't automatically make it okay for Inigo to go see women behind his lover's back.

seeing a fictional character cheat on their lover tends incite a strong gut reaction for the (most likely many) people who have been cheated on or have seen someone close to them in RL get cheated on than it would if the character in question stab someone in the face.

in other words, not too shocked people dislike Inigo for cheating nor am I going to blame them for it.

But you can dislike Inigo's cheating without calling him a slut or an entitled nice guy. And if you don't want him to be a cheater...just don't pair him with the Avatar.

actually, I was talking more about the people who do dislike Inigo while not being so extreme as to call him a slut or a Nice Guy. should've clarified, whoops.

And if you don't want him to be a cheater...just don't pair him with the Avatar.

it is possible to choose not to marry him off to Robin, however, the fact that it's canonically within his character to cheat doesn't make it any less uncomfortable for fans even if they do avoid the option. also, even if the player marries Inigo off to someone else, the fact that it's within his character to cheat doesn't automatically become not canon. it may not be within the official timeline like every other support out there, but Inigo potentially being a cheater is just doesn't make it any less part of his character as, say, Lucina's desire to support her friends and allies.

Ohhh. Yeah, that would've helped!

While this is true, the fact that it's in him to cheat doesn't have to make him a bad character or a scumbag who doesn't deserve a girlfriend. I headcanon him as being tempted and having to break his bad habit once he gets a girl, and his girl not pulling any punches when she reminds him NOT to do it. But she loves him because she knows he has it in him to stop, and that helps him become a better person.

Not saying that his potential girls are obligated to make him a better person, not by a long shot. He's gotta do it himself. But knowing someone believes you can do better can encourage you, and I like to imagine that's the case with Inigo.

Your mileage may vary, of course. But this is just my take.
