A constant criticism thrown at characters that are of the darker type, or have had dark things happen to them, is that they are, "emo," and whine too much. Okay, now, there are characters who I do think whine far too much, like Shinji in Evangelion, however I also do think characters of this type get an unfair rep because of this. Are characters that have angst just never allowed to whine? Or, do we have to do it differently? Or is just the frequency of it? Or, is it just so different from person to person that's it impossible to help?
