Be honest, what fictionalized character is the best representation of you?
By - Antoinewhite
The Scientist in Iron man who was yelled at because "Tony Stark built this in a cave! With a box of scraps!"
That exact scene's been going through my head at work, all the time, for the last couple months. Good luck with everything lol
That guy actually has a name, and is a full blown Marvel Villain.
He's the guy who gets away with all the equipment at the end of the newest spiderman... if that gives you an idea where things are headed.
You have caught my interest. What is this villains name so I may research him more?
I don't think he's in the comics but in Spiderman far from home he's one of the scientists on mysterios team, he's the one who helped with the tech
I love you, but you’re all terrible.
The episode where Gene dresses like Bob with the comb-over.
Tina: "Dad? Oh, this is confusing."
Oh my God
The old man in Viridian City. I've had my coffee, and now I feel great.
In the Japanese version he was plastered and you had to wait for him to sober up.
I 100% believe that’s true. They are not uptight about depicting alcoholics in Japan haha
Shrek. I’m big, feel rough and a little ugly, but I’ve got LAYERS.
Like an onion.
Hal from Malcolm in the Middle
It's about *the cones.*
I married a Ben Wyatt and consider myself very lucky. Ben is the best!
Lucille Bluth (I’m a man).
Michael: Do you remember our conversation about spending money?
Lucille: Oh yes, like it was yesterday!
Michael: Well it was this morning, so...
Michael: GOB, get rid of the Seaward.
Lucille: I'll leave when I'm good and ready.
I'll have a vodka.
Michael: Mother it's morning.
... And a piece of toast
"I had to, it's vodka. It goes bad once it's opened."
That one quote can sum up my entire 20's.... and over half of my 30's.
...she mistook the “drowsy eye” alcohol warning for a “winking-eye” alcohol suggestion.
“If you need me I’ll be at the hospital bar.”
- “Mother, hospitals don’t have bars”.
“This is why everyone hates hospitals! *cackles*”
Lucille:I love ALL my children
*flashback a second later* I don’t really care much for Gob....
“I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.” Also:
“I mean, it’s one banana, Michael. What could it cost? Ten dollars?”
"Here's some money, go see a star war."
The pause to let everyone catch up to the joke is so good.
Another one like that:
Michael [in jail]: Since you’re devastating people, go ahead and tell G.O.B. that I’ll be telling the cops that it was him in the truck. So he’ll be joining me here. I’ve got a nice hard cot with his name on it.
Lucille: You’d do that to your own brother?
Michael: ...I said “cot.”
Michael: I just haven't met anybody who's not self-absorbed and impossible to have a conversation with.
Lucille: If that's some kind if veiled criticism of me, I won't hear it and I won't respond to it.
That "Good for her" meme is so ubiquitous that a lot of people aren't even aware of the context. Lucille said that after watching a news report about a mother who purposely left her children locked inside a car and then let it roll down a river bank. So funny but dark as shit.
Perry the platypus. Watching everyone silently with judgey sassy looks
Marge Simpson. I'm doing my best to hold shit together while everyone else is doing incredibly stupid reckless shit.
That’s why I’m Lois from Malcolm in the Middle.
I always loved Lois, she had so much on her plate and she took crap from absolutely no one. Favorite scene is the 'WHO'S DAMN DOG IS THIS' in the heatwave traffic jam.
Edit: It's my real-life cake day today, so thanks everyone for being so goddam fun.
Oh, Starburns. I see you added a lizard to your special hat and sideburns. Am I missing anything?
Yeah! The human being underneath it all, but no one's really interested in that, are they?

Everytime I cough, It makes me think I've got contaminated with covid and I will die within a few days. Already stretched my death almost a year though...
Speaking of anxiety characters, I always found myself to be like Tweek from South Park because we both have anxiety disorder. Last year when North Korea said the US might have a Christmas present, I spent a good two weeks, especially on the holidays, thinking world war 3 would happen. The episode where tweek thinks North Korea is gonna kill him is my favorite next to the Satan episodes.
That random homless man who sees something incredible looks at his bottle of whiskey then throws it away.
I will never not enjoy that trope.
“The sixties were fun but now I’m paying for it” -Stan Lee Cameo
One of his best cameos. I think my favorite is when he’s cutting Thor’s hair. But the homeless Stan Lee is a close second
Delivery man Stan is my favorite
Is there a name for that?
The guy selling cabbage's in Avatar
Edit: My take on his character is, Eeyore is a realist.
I hope you find your tail.
I feel more like Art Vandelay.
And you want to be my latex salesman...
I WAS IN THE POOL
Hello, my name is George. I'm unemployed and I live with my parents.
The sea was angry that day, my friends - like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly, the great beast appeared before me. I tell you, he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow.
More like Can’t Stand Ya.
Call me T-bone.
I am Elaine. I dance with my thumbs out, am too loud and fuck up most of my relationships. I dated a guy who could've been Puddy's twin except he owned a bar.
People have described me as Kermit the Frog in full blown panicking “arms up” mode.
Edit: Woah, you go for a walk and find out you’ve got a thousand upvotes. Aaaahhhh!!!! (Flailing)... thanks everyone, and be your inner muppet.
Chaos muppet theory is real and I will stick by it
Mordecai from regular show. I'm a generally chill and relaxed guy. No major ambitions, I just want a easy job, some friends, and a girlfriend that shares my interests. Ultimately I'm happy just spending my days goofing off with my best friend
Fun fact: Mordecai is based off the creator of the show, right down to mordecai’s voice being his actual natural voice. It’s the reason why mordecai never does anything bird related, whereas rigby runs on all fours.
Frodo Baggins. I never asked for this, I'm tired, I want to go home, even when I am already home, old hurts come back to haunt me, I have difficulty relating to my peers...
But I have four or five very close friends who would follow me to the ends of the earth and I would follow them.
I haven't been almost eaten by a giant spider, or lost my right index finger, but there's still a few months in 2020, so we'll see.
Edit: thanks for the responses, they make me feel less alone. I'll let y'all know when/if I make it to Valinor lmao.
Yay! If you’re Frodo then that means you found your Samwise..... no friend on this or any Earth is better than Samwise.
can you stop blocking route 12 please
Finally something I relate to
Oompa loompa, cus im short, wanna die and work in a factory (not a chocolate one tho.... )
Would you start dancing and singing if a kid was dying at your workplace?
"Oompah loompa, what have we here?
This boy had caught his hand in the gears.
Now he has no fingers left
And we are all singing while he's bleeding to death."
Lmao I can't stop laughing
I think Soos from Gravity Falls
Soos is the best.
Aw but dood.. that’s like, a whole Soos when you could be a Robbie dood
Aw dood I dont know, that Robbie dood is kinda weird. That time when he wrote a song for Wendy, but it was just to brainwash her into loving him, major creepo vibes dood.
Anyone else just naturally hear his voice when reading this?
George Costanza. I'm a short, stocky, slow-witted bald man, totally inadequate, completely insecure, paranoid, neurotic. I've got it all, baby!

Charlie Brown of Peanuts
Still falling for Lucy's shit, huh? Next time, try telling her to fuck off when she asks you to kick the football.
But I might be able to get it this time :(
Chidi from The Good Place. When we listened to him my husband and I thought someone spied on us to write that character lol, he even said some things that I’ve said before.
I bet you also drink almond milk you environmental terrorist
I've actually dramatically reduced my almond intake because it condemned Chidi to the bad place.
While I relate to all of the characters, especially Eleanor, I do super relate to Chidi with his anxiety. A reason why a lot of people with anxiety keep it hidden is we don’t want to be like chidi and cause hell for the people around us with our decisions. If I can’t make a decision, I usually let others do it for me.
Yes, Chidi! Decisions are hard.
Nick Miller, Nick Miller, from the streets of Chicago
This times a million. Sometimes I can’t watch New Girl because I feel attacked. Sometimes irrational logic, procrastination, unable to discuss my feelings it’s all there.
My general feelings about that show is that everyone thinks they’re Schmidt but they’re really Nick.
I'm more Schmidt than I'd like to admit.
Wanna be best friends?
Todd from Bojack Horseman
Hooray! Todd episode!

Squidward is the guy who followed all those aspirational quoted about following your dreams and how if you do what you love you never work a day in your life.
There's an episode where the guy who was fry cook before SpongeBob comes back, and he's super famous and successful. And in a flashback Squidward could have done the same thing, but he didn't because he wanted a job that gave him enough liberty to focus on his art career.
And not for nothing, Squidward works *super* hard at art. He practices constantly and dabbles in different fields to get new experience. He says in one episode he has done a self portrait in every form of medium he knows to exist.
He's even rather confident and bold, doing his weird interpretive dance thing at the Krusty Krab talent show, despite how avant garde and weird it is.
Squidward really does everything right in terms of *trying* to be a good artist.
But despite all his constant hard work and relative skill, nobody appreciates his work. Everyone thinks he sucks, and there's no upward trajectory where it seems like he will become more successful over time.
So now there's just Squidward, a deeply depressed burnout who can't understand where he went wrong, stuck in a dead end job making pennies a day, who's main friends are people he doesn't even really like but hes stuck with.
Also theres that one episode where Squidward realizes he can't remember how it feels to experience happiness and almost kills himself like 5 times. So there's that.
My favorite episode about Squidward is the one with him and Spongebob delivering pizza. No matter how much Spongebob annoyed him during the trek, he didn't hesitate one bit in standing up for his friend when the customer rejected the order which left Spongebob crying. To me, that is the definitive Squidward: an exasperating grouch with a heart of gold.
Don’t forget he gives away all his possessions to bikini bottom when he pretends to be Santa Claus
Tbf he isn't a bad guy and has very real reasons to hate his neighbours. It's a tough life being squidward
Squidward isn't bad, but there are some moments where he can be a bit of a jerk. Deep down though I think he's a decent dude who just got beaten down by life
Speaking of his neighbors... can we discuss how idiotic the layout is? There is a whole street of nothingness but the architects/Bikini Bottom City Council decided to put three houses super close together? Were they planning on adding more houses but just ran out of money? I need answers.
You either die a Spongebob,
Or you live long enough to become a Squidward.
The older you get the more relatable squid ward becomes
Poor man just want some peace and quiet so he can play the clarinet (and for those who think he sucks, there are episodes where he’s actually really good).
People often sound bad when practicing. That's what practice is.
We not talkin about a game. We talkin about practice
Yeah and he's probably out of practice because of how often he gets interrupted by Spongebob's shenanigans.
Sponges in temperate regions live for at most a few years, but some tropical species and perhaps some deep-ocean ones may live for 200 years or more. Some calcified demosponges grow by only 0.2 mm (0.0079 in) per year and, if that rate is constant, specimens 1 m (3.3 ft) wide must be about 5,000 years old.

I read somewhere that Squidward is the most "human" character on that show. Basically the only sane person who simply wants privacy, and more so comes off as a curmudgeon because everybody else is constantly driving him up a wall. He has crappy neighbors, a crappy job, and lives in a town where everything he enjoys is considered crappy by everybody else.
To be fair, I'd probably feel that way if I had his life, too.
I would rather say that squidward is the adult surrounded by crazy kids.
One of those kids in Pokémon games with a ratatat and a pidgey
Do you enjoy wearing shorts, by any chance?
They’re comfy and easy to wear.
I'm totally just a house NPC
And not even a good one that says something interesting or gives you a potion.
I'd say something really generic like:
*Pokemon are great friends! Be sure to treat yours well!*

Did your boyfriend turn into the moon?
That’s rough, buddy
Abed Nadir from Community, first time I ever saw Autism like mine accurately portrayed on television, he wasnt a super genius with a few issues with his social skills, he was an actual living breathing character whose autism didn't define him. Also he does look a bit like me as well.
Do you have your cut out beard on, cause we're in a bad timeline.
“Guys what’s going on? Am I deaf?”
Troy and Abed in the moooorning!
Cool. Cool, cool, cool.
Aww Abed! He was the best character and accurately represented. I liked how they portrayed his autism but gave him other interesting hobbies and traits like you said.
My answer to this question was Annie! Where is the rest of our study group?
Edit: YAY the gang is all coming together!!! I’ll bake some brownies with Shirley
I would say Diane Nguyen, but without the motivation to do stuff. The depression and disillusionment are spot on though.
Diane is so creepily real. That scene during the earthquake when her and bojack are having the heart to heart and she breaks down “why can’t I be happy? Am I busted?”
God it was just so real and relatable, a lot of times in life I’ve felt this way, why, in the face of so many things that are great, why is it so hard to just be happy?
For a show about cartoon animals, BoJack nailed that realism alot. I put it right up there as one of the TV shows that changed my life. I started watching season 1 with a heavy alcohol problem, and by season 5 had gotten 1 year sober. I found it all very cathartic and relatable.
Honestly, Al Bundy.
Generally unsatisfied with his life, constantly reliving his glory days when he was king, has severe trouble showing affection, shows affection by making jokes and finds comfort in alcohol...yeah, that's me.
But you scored 4 touchdowns in one game.
Ron Swanson. I'm not kidding.

"Capitalism: A system for determining who is smart, and who is poor."
“Crying: acceptable at funerals, and the Grand Canyon.“
Fuck. Its Neville Longbottom.
Edit: thank you kind people for the words of encouragement! I think we all have our Neville days, which is why my post may have gotten some attention. Remember, whether you're book 2 Neville or book 7 Neville, it's up to you!
Neville was good at something nobody took seriously so nobody took Neville seriously, but what people didn't understand was that what Neville was good at he was very, very good at and that made him formidable. We need more Neville Longbottoms in this world.
Edit: Everybody is asking what was Neville good at? All I remember is it had something to do with plants.
Also a decent amount of Neville failings in magic were because he was using his dads wand.
Wow! I never knew this.
Yep! His gran wanted him to use his dad’s wand because she wanted him to follow in his footsteps. However, wands aren’t quite as powerful if they are not truly aligned to you. So at the end of the 5th book/movie, Neville’s wand snaps and he ends up getting a new one made for him by Ollivander, and it just so happens that Neville starts drastically improving for the rest of the series.
I'm sad none of the faculty of hogwarts diagnosed this.
The list of homicidal failings of the hogwards faculty could fill a whole series of books.
Like, seriously, murder willows, trolls and rapist centaurs on the schoolground?
> The list of homicidal failings of the hogwards faculty could fill a whole series of books.
I mean... it did.
Makes sense as to how he improved so much. Thanks for the info.
I havent read the books in a while. What was Neville very very good at ?
Herbology. Also when the going gets tough he's one of the few that can take the heat.
My boy got placed in Gryffindor for a reason
Being a bad ass, standing up to corrupt authority figures, and decapitating massive snakes.
Standing up to his friends as well when he had to.
Coupled with the fact that the dude had potential and and a good work ethic. All he needed was a teacher because his traumatization from his parents were really holding him back, harry was that person and neville proved to be the most unlikely yet powerful hero.
I agree, Neville is genuinely my favourite Harry Potter character.
Neville is awesome though. His growth into a badass hero is one of the most satisfying arcs in Harry Potter.
And also becoming super attractive
That was the biggest glow up in history. I remember thinking he was adorable in the first few movies then DAMN.
So you’re honest, brave, and eventually going to grow up to be hot and a badass?
That doesn’t sound half bad, actually.
Which version? The novel where he was a scholar but ugly and misunderstood? Or the Boris version where he’s green and tall?
Or the Penny Dreadful version where he's average looking but has a nasty gash on his face and also is incredibly poetic and consistently denied love wherever he might find it
The worst feature of Frankenstein's monster is that he speaks French.

Same. I was smart, awkward and lived in a fantasy world at that age. Now I'm 50 year old Tina with a couple of cats and a husband who is an adult version of Regular Sized Rudy.
Edited to adjust my Rudy.
Samwell Tarly. As soon as I saw him, I knew he was the character I would be in Westeros. Sure enough, his six-season arc (because we only count the first six seasons) ends with him getting to use the library.
In Westeros I’d be some nameless peasant who got horribly murdered...
No you wouldnt! You stop that silly nonsense right now!! You would starve and/or freeze to death.
