    Malty S Melromarc (マルティ=S=メルロマルク Maruti S Meruromaruku?), later known as B***h (ビッチ Bicchi?), is the primary antagonist of the light novel series The Rising of The Shield Hero. She is the former first Princess of Melromarc who betrayed one of her party, Naofumi Iwatani, one of the residents summoned from modern day Japan (the main protagonist of that series and becoming his archnemesis) by false accusations about him sexually assaulting her (which received infamy from the series’ fandom). After her lies were exposed, she was disowned from the royal family where she soon betrayed the other 3 heroes and becoming a wanted criminal.

    Why She Is Intentionally Both a B***h and W***e

    1. The main reason why this character is so hated and very controversial comes from the infamous scene where she betrays Naofumi Iwatani from attempted rape by reporting her father, while falsely framing him and getting rid of him from for no other visible reason other than always deceiving, manipulating, insulting others and being "muhahahaha evil" as a hobby.
    2. She may have framed Naofumi as the accused culprit, but her personality and motivations consist of just being some other villainous cliches (like narcissistic, lazy, opportunistic, selfish, pompous, absent-minded, and cowardly sycophant).
    3. She heavily taxed a village due to the circumstances of the last Wave being defeated.
    4. She attempted to cheat once more by ordering her knights to use magic during the race between Naofumi and Motoyasu.
    5. She carelessly implanted a demonized seed that grew into a monstrous plant being that attacked the village during the time when Motoyasu tried to help them, but she didn't care about the consequences.
    6. She barely cares about family (including her younger sister, Melty of which she and her knights were ordered to MURDER her) and recorded everything during the time Naofumi tried to save her from them.
    7. When the altered footage played in front of the public and across the kingdom, it made it look like Naofumi and his companions were deemed criminals and to thinking he brainwashed Melty, thus, earning him his undeserved title, "The Devil of the Shield".
    8. She alongside the Three Heroes attempt to capture Naofumi and his companions while trying to get back Melty but was under a façade and under manipulation to them.
    9. As mentioned above, she is just another stereotypical “traitorous party member” with generic evil plans to take over the world and just there to murder those that are innocent or not.
    10. Even by using a fire spell to finish off her younger sister, resulted in a fire forest which could've led to a village nearby burned. Malty didn't really care as the Three Heroes were in shock questioning her actions.
    11. Manipulated her companion Motoyasu into believing Ren and Itsuki have been killed by Naofumi, which in return the latter almost tries to kill him.
    12. After the battle with the Pope and the trial where Malty and her father were exposed and about to be executed before Naofumi declared a better punishment of their names changed while having their status as royalty stripped off. Malty, enraged by this, believed Naofumi was to blame instead of repenting for her own wrongdoings that cost dozens of lives lost by her.
    13. She often has no qualms of murdering people including Naofumi whom she attempted to do that by poisoning a pie before being caught by her sister.
    14. She sold her fellow party members in Motoyasu's team to sex slavery when they got in her way.
    15. She abandons Motoyasu during the battle with the Spirit Tortoise, which resulted in him unlocking his Curse series just like what she did with Naofumi indirectly.
    16. After becoming a criminal, she manipulates Ren and Itsuki, before betraying and robbing them, which resulted in their own Curse series being unlocked.
    17. She is responsible for all the terrible events that happened within the series, showing absolutely no remorse for everything she did for her own sadistic amusement and selfish desires to live luxuriously for power and riches. She also lacks many redeeming qualities and her actions (notably Naofumi's reputation destroyed by false accusations of her being raped) led to her being a complete hate sink by the fandom.
    18. Despite earning herself many enemies, it becomes increasingly clear that Malty herself is the reason her plans usually fail. She could have gotten what she wanted long ago if she stopped acting like a spoiled brat and alpha bitch, and actually start being more pragmatic. If she actually took the time to think things through, she might have gotten the edge over her enemies but she still prioritizes trying to ruin other people's lives through her compulsive lying, backstabbing tendencies, and sheer cruelty, whether it's out of petty spite, for the sheer fun of it, or because a seemingly better opportunity presents itself.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. Sarah Emi Bridcutt (who later voiced Camilla from Spy X Family) and Faye Mata (for the English dub) did a good job voicing her.
    2. She, alongside many characters, has a cute and beautiful-looking character design despite being basic.
    3. As mentioned at WSS#12, she and her father did get their comeuppance as they were exposed for their crimes against Naofumi and are about to be executed before Naofumi declared a better punishment of their names changed theirs with humiliating ones, while having their status as royalty stripped off. Plus, she was also disowned by the royal family afterward.
    4. As a villain, she is supposed to be hated as Naofumi is meant to be sympathetic because of her actions to him.
