Character Tropes

Postby Mr. Banana » Sun Nov 13, 2011 6:50 pm

Let's face it. No matter how much creativity and effort we put into making our characters, they're never truly 100% original. Instead, they're a baroque mixture of everything we've witnessed, from TV, games, books; all selectively put together into a creation all our own.

So let's have some fun with that, shall we?

So here's the deal... go to and find which tropes best suit your character's powers, history, personality, whatever. That's all. However, each character must have a minimum of five (it's MUCH easier than it may sound, trust me), though they can have more if you can manage, AND if a trope has multiple types, please include that as well (such as Type 1, or Type C - whichever one they use). Also, don't forget to link to the page for your character's tropes - that's just common courtesy. The '[url=' thing works wonders.

I'll start with mine as an example:

Itako - Kenji Arihiro
1. Long Haired Pretty Boy
2. Paralyzing Fear of Sexuality
3. Summon Magic
4. The Red Mage
5. Butt Monkey
6. Perky Goth
7. The Cutie
8. Sir Swears-a-Lot

Schrodinger - Dante Abascal Moreno
1. Not Using The Z Word
2. Agent Peacock
3. Chivalrous Pervert
4. We Can Rebuild Him
5. Swiss Army Appendage

Really? Just one reply so far? :disappoint:
Ah well... added three more tropes for Kenji. I'll get around to adding more for Dante once I've fleshed him out a bit more. :wink:
