Will the protagonist in this game ever be as badass as Red?

I'm going to guess that no, he cannot top Red. Red, the most powerful trainer in the series, the boy so badass he lives at the top of a freezing cold mountain. This trainer, can he hope to even mildly compare?

Finally, some fanservice of Red, just to prove how pointless it is to try and top him. http://i7.minus.com/ixJtVsifrnKEz.jpg

Why is Red so beloved?

He's the same as all the other protagonists; nothing more than the player's self-insert.

Hilbert/Hilda caught at least one legendary. Said legendary wanted to be caught because H is just that cool. He/she catches two if you count Victini. Canonically.

I personally always thought Gold was more badass than Red (lemme be clear here...Gold, not "Ethan")

The first legends of trainer badassery started with Red. He's been popping up in the most unlikely places ever since to beat you to the ground!

If you want to play that game the protagonist in BW/2 battles the far more powerful form of that Legendary fused with another Legendary and wins. And they did it without legendary Pokemon of their own, unlike Hilbert/Hilda who used their Legendary to face another.

And that other legendary wanted to be caught so it could bring about balance, nothing more. If anyone should get credit in Black/White it should be N. He's the one who actually had to tame his Legendary dragon.

Nope. No protagonist yet had Red's swag.
