  1. I think you probably picked the best example for provoking parent mode: Deku! Kid keeps hurling himself into danger with abandon!

    Mirio’s even worse. I’m seriously dreading the next episode… I’ve not read the manga, but talk about death flags…

    You talked about Momiji in another post — he and actually most of the Soumas would be candidates, too.

    And don’t get me started about Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu. They certainly fit into the mold. So do Emma, Norman and Ray and…

    Now that I think about it, anime routinely hurls kids into danger! No wonder I get so worried about them. These shows are constantly invoking the Dad API!

    • I think that’s partly why children make such excellent protagonists (outside of kids shows). Watching children get into trouble or life or death situations is so much scarier and nerve-wracking than watching adults do the same. If you ask me, that’s what made Made in Abyss such edge-of-seat viewing!
