Shes a typical Mary Sue or whatever the term is. She tries to act cool and tough but has no character development or anything interesting. Just another typical "strong woman for the sake of their being a strong woman".

I'd much rather her have character development and earn her mystique because she doesnt deserve it so far. I know I'm being harsh, but people call other women in games a Mary Sue when they arent, and if anything Ada definitely is.

Honestly felt she was handled better in this game. In others she is unstoppable perfection, but here she actually hits a few snags.

Definitely made me like her more.

How the f*** is she a "strong woman just for the sake of being a strong woman"

She's a strong woman but she isn't just strong for the sake of being strong. She's a professional agent, she's suppose to be like that.

She has flaws in this game, she got injured, she even hints she needed Leon's help multiple times.

She isn't a Mary Sue at all.

You want "Mary Sue" look at RE4/RE6 and even then, there nothing wrong with how she was in those games either. Not every female character needs to be a damsel in distress.

I hated that Bruce Wayne electronic hacking gun.

Grow up, Capcom.

Ada is a professional spy agent that already knows and is prepared for this. Leon is a rookie cop who just arrived for his first day.

A professional secret agent like Ada is suppose to be calm, cool, and skillful.

And I love her sunglasses coat detective look, don't you dare take that cool feature away from her. I liked it better than her red dress outfit to be honest.

She's good in 2 and 4. Kind of annoying in 6 with the constant talking to herself and she's awful in Damnation.
