This must be your fault. You and your girly name!
My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie."
I’d like to add that it is normally a white male who plays savior, so any deviation from that would be nice. In about half of the movies mentioned the person who trained the white male was a person of color. But, I guess we are leaving that out because people of color don’t matter, right?
Thank you, Elizabeth Bear, for the friendly reminder that people of color are completely invisible to white social justice activists unless we are murdered in cold blood. #YesAllWhitePeople
This is a good point. Reflecting on where this trope is visible, it feels like often the sidelined character is either a woman of any race (mostly white but not always) or a man of color. See Laurene Fishburne in The Matrix, Zoe Saldana in Guardians, or both Elizabeth Banks and Morgan Freeman in Lego Movie. White male protagonists are always ‘the chosen one’, meant to be educated from complete ignorance by some minority character until he eventually surpasses them.
