I feel there’s no real quantitative scale for this kind of stuff, but I’ll bite.
With 1 being Looney Toons and 10 being Claptrap here we go.
Aurelia and Zer0 are basically Vault Hunters for the same reason, to kill bigger and bigger things. I feel their sanity per se would be on par, with the only difference being Aurelia’s flamboyance in comparison to Zer0’s reservedness. But they’re fairly civil nonetheless Let’s go with a 7 as more of a baseline.
Mordecai and Axton, similarly, are comparable in the sense that they do what they do so people know that they did it. With axton getting kicked from Dahl for being a glory seeker, potentially endangering his entire platoon for selfish reasons. Which gives him some frowny face stickers. Mordy gets some bonus points for stepping up for the raiders when they needed it most, with one of his only outbursts being completely justified. Also Axton has some creepy attachment issues that manifest in his turret. Axton 6 Mordy 8
Roland is probably the most moral VH on the list (barring clappy who is too stupid to do anything legitimately malicious on purpose). His story (not including TPS right now) is that he didn’t believe in the what Atlas was fighting for so he went Awol in efforts to stop them, then helped rally his former comrades after the collapse to combat a greater evil. However, in TPS he willingly allows Jack to do some messed up stuff, granted that he was only doing so to prevent him from doing something even more messed up, so 8.
I have no idea why people are so defensive of Lilith, she’s an emotional trainwreck. Sure she’s normal half the time, but the other half she’s doing extremely reckless revenge like ■■■■. Sure there’s crazier, but she’s definitely not in control there, so 5.
Maya is like legitimately chill. Other than the standard murder everyone affairs that all the other VH’s do, she’s level headed and moral. I’m willing to send a 9 her way just because you can’t really compete with the mindless morality that the Trashcan puts forward.
Brick and Salvador… both insane bloodlusting psycopaths, but at Least Sal kinda has a reason for going super ham vs Hyperion, and Brick has a teddy bear side for Tina. idk let’s give Brick a 3 and Sal a 2, just because a roided-up Pandoran seems less stable than a Brick.
By Definition, Krieg the Psycho should be our Looney Tunes base mark. I wanna separate him for the sake of there is a sane inner voice that’s still kinda there, that would probably be an 8. but Krieg himself is a 1.
Gaige is trying too hard to be all Anarchy and w/e, i Actually don’t think she’s too insane barring her teen darma and disregard for herself (Didn’t she cut off her own arm?) . Let’s say she’s a 6.
Timothy is an interesting one, you can tell he clearly doesn’t want to do anything that he’s doing, but in his desparation he got tricked into a bum deal where he’s under constant surveillance to “stay in character”. So I think he’s a 7.
Willhelm is bonkers, half the time, his self description is “I’m really good at killing people, I wanna be a robot”. he’s very simple with his goals: Kill People, Get Money, Buy More Robot Parts. This itself is a fairly insane goal, but its so straightforward that there has to be some lucidity there. 4
Nisha comes from a troubled childhood so it’s somewhat understandable that she’s messed up. She kills bandits for the sake of killing them. I’ll shoot a 5 her way. Just because she’s somewhat lucid in her actions.
Claptrap, 10, he’s stupid, he’s bad at everything he does, but he means well. Barring the things he did when he was hacked via satellite, he’s been pretty chill.
Edit: Missed Athena, she’s a mercenary through and through, no moral compass, just fight for whoever’s paying her. Giving her a 5 just because she’s takes the morality of whoever pays her, as long as they aren’t trying to kill her. Drawing Parallels to Lilith because unlike her, she doesn’t have extreme bursts of morality or psychosis, but rather a more stable bloodthirst.
