Oh Kyubey, you look so cute with the never changing cat smile. After Mami’s death, a lot of people including myself started to question Kyubey’s motives. Some people took it a step further and think that Kyubey is the devil, thus creating intensive hate. While I don’t agree with his views on morality, I want to explore some of the possible reasons why Everybody Hates Kyubey™ thus far. (Image Source)
Kyubey’s Never-changing Smile ◕ ‿‿ ◕
When you look at his face, his cat smile never changes. Even if a witch eats a magical girl or someone else challenges them to a fight, it stays the same. To put it this way, he cannot display any type of emotion, thus he does not have any sympathy towards the victim. So basically, his smile means that he is enjoying the misfortunes that happen on other people that make him rather menacing.
Kyubey Always Appear in Dark Areas
When he appears, he always sits in a really dark place. This darkness makes it feel that he is up to something. In addition, his smile and eyes make him look sinister in the dark.
Screw the Fine Print… I have Contracts!
Deciding on a wish and becoming a Magical Girl could be exciting, but if you don’t know the improtant information in the fine print, you are screwed! The problem is, Kyubey leaves the knowledge about Soul Gem a secret before something bad happens. For instance, in Episode 6, Madoka aimlessly throws Sayaka’s Soul Gem off the bridge while not knowing the protential effects it has on her friend. As a result of his actions in this scene, it only made him look even more amoral, thus backing up the fact that he is evil.
Not to mention, this zombie thing has a profound effect on Sayaka’s mind even though she is invincible…
Kyubey has more Screentime than any Magical Masocot combined… by Cheating!
Unlike most mascots, Kyubey does absolutely nothing except seperating the Soul Gems from young girls bodies and eating the Grief Seeds. Meanwhile, in Nanoha, Yuuno gets petted by the girls, watching girls undress while being embarassed and using magic to protect Nanoha… Regardless of his human-like behavior, he gets hardly any screentime. This is a reason why he is so annoyed at Kyubey who uses telepathy 99% of the time without actually being there.
Atleast Yuuno had morals since he is human afterall. Otherwise, he would be at a great disadvantage.
Kyubey just wants to make a Harem…
Perhaps he is too lonely and only wants to make young girls into magical girls so he can have a harem ending… Since most of the harem leads are mediocre most of the time, it’s quite possible that he would get the same treatment.
We are all Sadistic and love to beat the crap out of Kyubey for all the bad things he done…
This so true because a lot of people including myself enjoy venting our anger for any unfortinate event that happens to the girls on Kyubey. This includes people who create/draw pictures and/or create fan fiction that have the girls killing, strangling, and cooking him to release our feelings towards him. Whatever may be the case, Kyubey must be the biggest masochist ever after going though this torture.
Then again, there are probably more secrets we don’t know about him, so there will be more reasons to hate Kyubey before the show ends.
