Rachel from Tower of God webtoon is the most despicable character in the fandom. Is the hate towards her justified? Why is Rachel the most despised character of all times?
In the beginning, I had faith in her. I thought she was a misunderstood character. The fans sympathized with her. They even pitied her because of her reasoning. We waited for something to change. But, there is no hope anymore. As the series progressed, none of the remaining sentiments left. There was no chance left for her to redeem herself. Rachel is incorrigible.
Brace yourself for what comes next. I’ll let you be the judge! Read and find out yourself if Rachel deserves the hate. There are a lot of spoilers. Spoiler warning ahead!
Set in a world of the Tower of God where regulars or chosen ones, can climb the tower. She met Baam in the cave and she’s the one who names Baam. Rachel is an irregular just like Baam. But here comes the twist. Baam is the one mentioned in the prophecy. Rachel has misguided notions that she is the one who deserves everything that Baam has.
She wanted to climb the tower to see the stars and what was on the top of the tower. She believes that she’s the chosen one! But guess what! Nope, the tower didn’t choose her! She even went as far as to make a deal with Headon to kill Baam. Talk about classic Rachel.
Rachel | Relationship With Baam
Rachel and Baam have a close relationship. When it comes to her, Baam is blind. She kept manipulating him throughout the series.
During the floor of the test, she went as far as to fake her injury. She deceived Baam and made everyone believe that she cannot walk anymore. And ultimately she killed Baam, or at least she tried to.
The sad part is…Rachel pushed Baam a second time. This girl never learns. She keeps mistreating Baam over and over again.
As a reader of the webtoon and the fans were so happy when the most awaited moment came. HELL YEAH!!!! Baam finally said goodbye. That scene was so satisfying. The fandom possibly couldn’t be any happier.
Rachel went too far by saying Baam is a monster. The blondie really had to break his heart.
Rachel works with FUG. FUG is the anti-Jahad group that has plans to destroy the tower.
Character Analysis of Rachel
- Rachel has a lot of luck. She gets away with almost anything and everything. I think that is one of her assets.
- She believes that she is the chosen one.
- In one of the episodes, Wangnan calls her a psycho. My heart still aches to remember when she stole his ring.
- Rachel herself has claimed that she is a bad person.
- She wants to defy destiny.
- Interestingly Rachel is the definition of a backstabber. You can hardly keep track of how many people she backstabbed.
- She is very insecure about her looks. I wish someone teach her about self-love. It’s important to love yourself girl. She thinks her freckles are ugly. Now that’s a bit harsh. If you cannot accept yourself, how can you expect others to do the same?
- Rachel has very low self-esteem.
- She is also jealous of Endorsi. The dislike counts keep adding up!
One of her typical characteristics is how she complains excessively when things don’t go down the way she wants.
I don’t think Rachel has any notable abilities. She’s just plain and ordinary. As a character, she lacks growth and dimensionality. Even if she’s SIU’s (Tower of God’s creator) favorite character, there’s nothing special about her. She’s predictable and boring. To sum it up, all the reasons are good enough to justify the hate she gets.
She has a severe inferiority complex towards Baam. Rachel is the definition of jealous incarnate. Everything she wants or desires, Baam has them. On several occasions, she tries to manipulate Baam. She’s well aware that Baam has a soft spot for her. Baam would do anything for her. She’s unredeemable. She tried to kill Baam. She had a direct hand in trying to hurt Khun Agero Agnis. Remember the iconic scene of Baam finally telling her to get lost? Well, that was totally satisfying.
So what is your reason to detest Rachel? Do you think she is despicable? To find out read Tower of God available on Webtoon. You can also watch the Tower of God anime. Enjoy !!!!
