I was criticizing a overused trope, the trope itself! A trope that has been used way too much in this comic. That the trope wasn't fully used (MC did gain a powerful allie after all, so sort of a variation on the trope as well as a latter item) in this instance as per my prediction does not change anything. If you don't think I have a right to criticize tropes, well screw you. I'll do so anyway. I'm done with your nonsense.
