Someone always joke with me that I like characters who need saving, because I want to be the one to save them. That's not why I like them. Xion from Kingdom Hearts fought tooth and nail to save her friend no matter the cost.
Lapis Lazuli from Steven Universe just wanted to go home, then when she was given a chance to save her only friend at the cost of self imprisonment, she did it without hesitation.
Blake Belladonna from RWBY, Asuna Yuuki from S.A.O, Erza Scarlett from Fairy Tail the list goes on and yes there are some I do like who in the beginning need help, but they do later become strong enough to stand on their own.
I'm not the white knight, yes if someone I care for is in danger I will fight my hardest to protect them, but I'm not the guy who saves a girl. I'm worse.
I'm the guy who needs saving. I'm the squier in stolen armor, trying to honor the memory of a fallen hero. And every time I'm compared to someone else because of how I look or act, I feel worthless. The worse part is, I can't be honest or else I'll be torn to shreds.
