5 Animated Characters You're Afraid To Admit You Were Weirdly Attracted To!
their own taste when it comes to finding love. Some people like
similar types, but for the most part, everyone’s interests
are unique. It makes sense; there’s so many different
combinations of attributes that everyone’s idea of “the
one” probably should be different.
But for some reason, there’s seems to be a whole lot more overlap of attractions when it comes to animated characters. And it’s high time we talk about this. If you ask someone which animated character sparked something in them early on, odds are, they’ll name at least one of these 5 characters. It may not make sense, but it’s just something engrained in our subconscious.
Let’s dive in...
1. Kovu (The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride)
We can agree that Kovu was hotter than Simba, right? Great. Now let’s talk about how we were just… fine with being attracted not only to an animated character, but an animated lion at that.
In fairness, part of it could have been his personality. Kovu had the whole brooding, bad boy persona going on. Watching him figure out his place in the world, going from trained killer to having fun with the girl he met as a kid and baring his soul under the stars, you can’t help but swoon a bit. Plus, he rocked his eventual scar way better than his uncle ever could have.
2. Max Goof (A Goofy Movie)
we’re talking about being attracted to animated animals,
let’s talk about Max Goof. Because however human he may seem,
technically Max is a dog. But in terms of personality? He’s
an absolute gem. He got adorably nervous around Roxanne –
who, for the record, was also gorgeous, making them an absolute
POWER couple – and yet still put himself out there with a
whole damn musical number.
3. Shego ("Kim Possible")
people, men and women alike, Shego awakened something inside.
Should we have been concerned that she could kill us with her bare
hands, thanks to that green energy she produced? Probably.
(Personally, I was always more concerned by the fact that she filed
her nails while wearing gloves… didn’t make
But her signature sass, combined with the fact that she was truly the brains of each operation, was just so much fun. Shego was kind of like an early version of Gamora, from Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s just something that draws you to her.
4. Human Shrek (Shrek 2)
By all accounts, Shrek 2 was a perfect sequel. It had everything we loved from the first film but raised the stakes, raised the humor, and included a Grammy-worthy musical moment.
5. Lola Bunny (Space Jam)
was one of the OG feminists. Absolutely destroying Bugs Bunny for
calling her “doll” will forever be one of the most
iconic moments in sports film history.
