Bonus points: The creators themselves also forget that the character wasn't supposed to be cool and start portraying them as genuinely cool in the sequels instead of trying too hard to be cool like they were originally.

    Travis is literally both, and that's what he's been since the first game.
    He's an idiot, but his absolute confidence in his own idiocy makes him cool in his own way.

      >the first game.
      The one where the whole game is just Sylvia fricking with him cause she's bored, with her even ghosting him at the end to show that she gives zero fricks about him? And the only characters who show any interest in him are a fat ugly hag and girl who explicitly likes how pathetic he is?
      Compare that shit to 2, where the assassin thing is suddenly legit, he is an actual legend with every female character being into him and even gets to frick Sylvia.

        Are you a child? 2 just made him the character Travis was pretending to be in order to deliver a shallow, crowd-pleasing plot where Travis could goof off with stupid one-liners (except it's supposed to be cool now) with no thought put into it. The first game was ALREADY a revenge story and ironically had Travis actually struggling internally, more than the game subtitled "desperate struggle"

    Whether or not he's cool is besides the point; he's likable. You root for him because despite everything he's the most driven and entertaining character in the story.
    All that aside, Raiden is a funny reversal to you're requesting because while they did go from actively making him lame to actively making him cool, people did genuinely think he was lame.

    I'm not seeing how he isn't cool, is it because he gets scammed by Sylvia (ignoring NMH2)?

      he's good at murdering people, which would be a repulsive trait in real life. other than that, he's a neet weeaboo living in a shithole California motel jerking off to e-girl and dumpster diving for clothes. his sole motivation in life is to get a living woman to suck his wiener. he's pathetic.

        Yes, but he is confident in all of that in a way where you kind of love him anyway.

          He's unlikable by design tho. He's a horrible person overal, but just like any person, he might have some traits that can be considered likable. The fact you think a few likable traits makes him good makes you a fricking idiot

            He's an anti-hero. He kills people, but they're mostly bad people.

            But that's not why I think he's likeable. I think he's likable because he's a moron, but he owns it with charisma.

            You understand not every character has to be a good role model, yeah?

              This, but he feels like this because not all of them are bad people, and a lot of them have A LOT of personality despite only getting an intro and outro. Like that Samurai you fight in the second game. Dude doesn't say anything but Travis is gay for him because he liked how good he was.

        Humans don't like murder but respect the ability to kill, see martial artists. You are right that Travis has a lot of pathetic traits, but he was still disciplined enough to become a swordmaster and learn wrestling, so he's still considered a cool person.

        You clearly don't know shit about real life. Women loves a man that can fight and hurt. Or even look like they can fight and hurt. Fricking Murderers get scores loads of fan girls, and if they're Pretty Boys who are murderers, then they lose their shit over them.

    Travis is basically larping the whole game as a cool character while actually being pathetic but then deeper down he becomes cool again in a more abstract way once you can appreciate his trauma, egoistic nihilism and search for meaning.
    In other words

    >high iq take: nah, he's cool

      This.

      What sort of a person "doesn't get" that Travis is supposed to be a loser, anyway? They literally make you live his life, to hammer in that point. That's what the game is.

      OP trying to sound smart, actually made himself sound like a dumbass.

      If you went out risking life and limb to try and settle the score with the woman who killed your family? Yeah.
      Y'see Travis imposed the typical "hero's journey" archetype from the media he's obsessed with on top of himself to cover up his trauma. The fact that he has all this shit going on underneath that he has to reconcile is what balances his hedonistic flaws out.

          No. He's an example of a man who is objectively a "loser", who I think is cool because he's confident and charismatic.
          I'm not going to talk to you anymore, because you clearly have a low IQ, and you're frustrating to talk to.

    He's a hot head who has a natural talent for killing, in his free time he uses it to go to the gym, work dead end jobs, watch anime and lucha libre and fapping
    Owns a beast of a bike and has a wide collection of beam katanas and diferent mangas and movies
    He lives his love the way he wants, how is that not cool?

        Not sure I agree with you there. I actually fell asleep playing that game, and the level design is pretty shitty too. But then again, I'm not a fan of action games in a bird's eye view in general.
