protagonist of several of R.A. Salvatore's Forgotten Realms
novels. He is well known - and well-hated - on /tg/ for being the origin of the "Good Drow Ranger Fighting To Prove Him/Herself Worthy Despite The Sins Of His/Her Kin Whilst Dual-Wielding Scimitars" stereotype used as a template to create characters by hundreds upon thousands of pathetically unoriginal idiots the world over. Whilst Drizzt really isn't a terrible character in and of himself (especially in light of shit like Pinelight
), the sheer volume of Drizzt-clones he's spawned are capable of inducing burning fury
in even the most mild and even-tempered of dudes
He is also commonly described as a Mary Sue, although whether this is really a property of the character himself or if he's simply tainted by association with the thousands of knock-off characters he spawned is open to debate. Given past experience by players being inspired by stupid shit, there is every reason to take a lot of problems with the guy with a grain of salt.
Even then, he is an elf and thus automatically 5 billion times less manly than even the dreaded Space Communists.
 Ok, so why is this son of a bitch so popular?
