Pros of identifying with a fictional character: It’s nice to see yourself in someone else’s shoes, it’s inspirational at times, it inspires you that you can also make it through difficulties

Cons of identifying with a fictional character: when bad things happen to them or they hit a bad point in their lives it can almost be physically painful to watch

Alternatively: you feel personally offended/rejected when others criticize them.
