Is Madotsuki a sociopath?

 No.8418

Well, answering that question with anything other than "maybe, we don't know since nothing in the game hints pretty much about mado" is just projecting and/or fanwanking, so… why do you think that?

Just something that came to mind

Probably not, at least likely not a subtype 1 (traditional type, fearless-unemotional). Yume Nikki is cryptic but I don't get the sense from playing that Mado is an evil, carefree hedonist so much as someone very lonely, depressed, etc on her way to ending her life.

Type 1 Mado would likely have lived and died differently, perhaps in a car chase or to drugs or STDs, etc. Maybe her dreams would have been never about feeling down, so much as increasingly more boring physical activities and manipulations and brutalization of everyone around her. Whatever tension and negativty regular Mado would be feeling would manifest as self-harm and aggression from frustration and boredom in her.

Some of the things like Mado usually not really emotionally responding to things in her dreams, the Knife effect violence, the lack of meaningful relationships with dream inhabitants, even the "gameiness" (due to sociopaths acting without responsibility) could be signs for her being one but they could just as well not be and I doubt they are.

I have a theory that Mado is at the home arrest after committing something against the law.
In that case it explains why Mado didn't "died differently, perhaps in a car chase or to drugs or STDs, etc".
Her being sociopath explains why she doesn't socially interact in a normal way with people in her dreams.

>Maybe her dreams would have been never about feeling down, so much as increasingly more boring physical activities and manipulations and brutalization of everyone around her.


But the residents of her dreams are formless brutal creatures. Maybe that's how she wants to see other people: damaged and deformed. You can't say for sure that Mado dreams about feeling down.

Also think about encounters with the game's human-like characters:
1. Shitai-san: dead
2. Monoko: deforms
3. Monoe: disappears
4. Poniko: becames distorted creature
5. even Masada-sensei: his "home" crashes
6. Toriningen: insane and deformed

So every human character is manipulated and brutalized in her dreams. And she doesn't seem to care. Not to mention severed heads in White Desert.
Also notice how every human character is distant. You have to travel in the game for a long time to find even one of those characters.
And none of them gives you the most important thing in the game: the effect except Shitai-san. That means that Mado don't think humans are that inportant except they are dead. Just think about it.

Or maybe the humanoid npcs are hard to find because she doesn't have many close relationships with people? Maybe they're deformed because she's had bad experiences with people and or has anxiety?That fits better with her being a recluse. The only thing really going in this theory's favor is her lack of emotional response, which points more to her being a psychopath than a sociopath. Depressed people can also come to feel a certain numbness that also explains this. Mado's already at the end of her rope and close to suicide if that's the case, so it would make sense that she's apathetic about everything at that point.

On a meta level, maybe Mado was made expressionless to save effort or make the game more ambiguous or immersive. That point is that you're Mado, so you don't need the game to hold your hand and tell you how to feel about things. That would actually take something away from the game.

Why does everyone forget about Mafurako and Kamakurako?
Besides, if Shitai-san and the toriningen both count as human characters, why omit the FC demon?

 No.8545

>>8544
>Why does everyone forget about Mafurako and Kamakurako?
Because they aren't manipulated and brutalized.

 No.8546

>>8545
Regardless of that, they are still considered human NPCs, aren't they?
Now that I think about it, you could also include the people from the mall area and those from the Sky Garden.

 No.8547

>>8546
Those are too far removed from normal to count.

 No.8548

>>8547
And Shitai isn't?

 No.8549

>>8548
No, because he's covered in blood. He stands out enough to be considered an important human. Also he's got normal hair and clothes.

It could be interpreted both ways, you know. I agree that Madotsuki shows signs of depressed person, but she could be a sociopath as well. Just a theory a game theory. And in your post you didn't said anything to prove that "sociopath" theory is wrong, you've just proved that "depression" theory is right. But that's Yume Nikki, and if one theory is right, that doesn't mean that the other is not.

>>8545
I've forgot about them. Also I think they could've be the same person.
But despite of that:
Mafurako: can't really count as human NPC because she's invisible and can be seen as human NPC anly while using Cat effect
Kamakurako: I agree, she sleeps peacefully. There I can't say anything yet

>>8546
You could also add faceless witches and fishing men from Docks to this list.
But the thing is they don't have a face. Without a face you can't count them as human NPC's. And that's only proves further my point because that means that Mado doesn't even bother to remember the faces of other human beings. Face — is the main thing that distinguishes one human from another and she doesn't bother to imagine even some kind of face on all NPC's.
Not to mention that NPC's from Mall distort when you interact with them.

No, but she is my socio… Amigo.
