    So there was this one page where it talked about races that were taken over by the empire. Not like orcs or goblins, but like there's this one race that's technological, one that had amazons, a barbaric race, and a proud warrior race. I've looked everywhere Empire related and I'm coming up short. The reason I'm so desperate is cause I was using that as a basis for a story I was working on. I don't know if it got deleted or what. If it's still out there, and if someone could find it, I would be extremely grateful. Reply

      Was it a trope, or a character sheet for something (listing races)?

      It was listed as a trope I believe.

      Fantasy Axis of Evil?

      No something like that but different.

    Is there a trope for the Root of All Evil?

    'Cause Main.Root Of All Evil is currently a main redirect to Series.Root Of All Evil.

    I'm looking for a trope to replace it's use here in For the Evulz:

    * Anything relating to yukkuri abuse tends to revolve monsters of humans who delight themselves in causing harm and death towards defenseless head-like creatures just because they can. Then there's [[RootOfAllEvil the factory]], which all yukkuri are naturally afraid of. They say it won't let them "take it easy", but it's way more sinister than that. There are even yukkuri shops people can go to select their "victim" on some works.

    A character believes that "every action I take, no matter how cruel, violent or brutal, it is for my nation, my people, my partners and myself" justified dictatorships, witchhunts, sponsored terrorism, state atheism, wars of invasion and aggression, militarization of children and horrible acts.

    A character finds himself under conflicting orders from two different superiors (neither of which is clearly higher up than the other) who refuse to communicate with each other, and gets blamed when he goes with one over the other.

    For example, a costume designer is told to make an woman's outfit more revealing by the marketing department, and to make it less revealing by the censorship department. One (or both) complains after he makes the requested changes, but the idea of working it out with the other department beforehand never seems to come up. Reply

    Hulk is in a destructive rampage in the city, and Spider-Man is trying his best to stop him. Some random guy in the street takes a photo. Hulk notices it, cries "Hulk smash!" and prepares to kill the guy with a megaton punch... and, instead of running away to save his life, he simply stands there, staring in awe at the Hulk.

      That's closer, but not quite it. Isn't there a trope for characters who are more good-natured about it, setting up friendly challenges for other characters to solve?

    I know there is a Long-Haired Pretty Boy and a Barbarian Long Hair trope, but is there any trope for how when a vampire is presented as a beautiful creature or a seductor, and not even then, they tend to be represented with long hair?

    Because I see this tendecy with vampires like Alucar (the one from Castlevania and the one Hellsing), Lestat, D, and even Dracula in Van Helsing and Buffy Vampire Slayer. Reply

    An old joke has a nervous young man wanting to travel to Pittsburgh. He sees that there is a very well-endowed young lady in a tight sweater working the ticket counter, and he's a bit shy about it. But he wants to be cool and casual, so he gives himself a mental pep talk, takes a deep breath, and strides confidently up to the ticket counter. He then asks if he could please have "two pickets to Ti....." Stops there and blushes beet red.

    An adaptation of a work follows the original story up to a point, then diverges wildly (a character who died survives/lived died, the traitor is someone else, an entirely new enemy shows up, etc.).

    For example, the Astérix story The Mansions of the Gods is more or less over when the Gauls unleash Cacofonix to drive out the Romans, the movie adaptation goes on a lot longer by having the Gauls sabotage Asterix's effort so they can live like Romans. Both end with the Romans kicked out and the mansions destroyed. Reply

    There was a cartoon, and I think they were emotions. I remember one being like hugging or something, they had like a face, and arms and legs and they were like blue and pink and green and other colors I think it was on cartoon Network, but I could be wrong. One was a hugger (i think he was green) and the female character was pink. I can't recall if they talked or not, I want to say mid 2000's Reply

    What trope(s) would this fall under? You know when you have a character and through some kind of magic, technology, or even just Through the Eyes of Madness they start talking to themselves? Not literally but like they start talking to a copy of themselves, whether that be their reflection, a clone, some kind of mental projection (in the case of characters entering their own minds/some kind of mental world). And then that reflection/clone/projection starts belittling them, maybe even mocking them as a sort of manifestation of their inner demons, their doubts and fears, and/or just plain the result of a psychic character messing with them. What trope(s) would this fall under? Any help is much appreciated! Reply

    Is there a trope for where a show's cast size is larger than at face value, for example, if the OBB (opening billboard), listed 22 characters, but in reality, there's actually 38 characters (with the other 16 listed in the closing credits)?

    The characters are main characters, not bit-part or a One-Shot Character, and aren't a Victim of the Week.

    This would be for a show that has an OBB, like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit or Supergirl (in this example, assume it's a Continuity Reboot that takes the original series in Broad Strokes.).

    Is there such an example of a credit from the Credits Tropes for this? Reply

    When two old/childhood friends become sworn enemies. However, later on it is revealed that they secretly still trust each other & are friends, and becoming enemies was in fact in order to outsmart a greater foe. The audience is unaware they are still friends until the big reveal. Example: Bob may join the enemy, inciting Ann to hate them- when in fact Bob was a spy the entire time and both he and Ann were secretly in kahoots, fooling their enemy. May include a moment when both friends are about to fight each other, and both simultaneously attack the greater enemy instead. Reply

    A character dies in circumstances that make the method of death seems obvious (and usually undignified), before it's revealed they died of something else only tangentially related to said circumstances.

    For example, there was a Darwin Award story where a man trusted a neighbor to perform home liposuction via vacuum on him. The fact that he died isn't much of a surprise, but it averted the expected Meatgrinder Surgery as he actually died of an anasthetic overdose.

    One of the villains is relaxed and wise-cracking in contrast to his more serious and goal-orientated friends. This can put him at loggerheads with them. He's dedicated to the cause, he just wants to have a fun time achieving it rather than making it Serious Business all the time. But he can still be prone to paranoia and outrage if forced into a situation which goes against his moral beliefs, or if he's worrying that the operation could be compromised if they aren't careful.

      Hmm. Mellow Fellow?

      Pretty good fit thanks, but is there any close variant which also emphasises a joke-making streak?

      That part falls under Laughably Evil

      Hmmm. It's not so much that he's funny to the audience (although YMMV) but more than he jokes around as a contrast to his seriously-minded rival/frenemy. Anything for that?

    Kind of self explanatory. A child of a person doesn’t want to be referred to the same way their parent is, for whatever reason. Usually the parent is famous or at least well-known by the protagonist, but not always. Reply

    Is there a trope for where two characters who have the same surname but are unrelated, suddenly become related in an adaptation or Continuity Reboot?

    For example, there's Agent Ava Sharpe in Legends of Tomorrow and Becky Sharpe / Hazard in The Flash (2014), but what if a Continuity Reboot of Arrowverse made them related, when they currently (as far as I know) aren't in this continuity?

    Bob's new neighbor Alice moves into the neighborhood (a suburb of London) and she acts very American in her behavior, talking a lot about The American Dream, eats a lot of junk food (namely a Bland-Name Product Taco Bell or [=Mc Donald's] substitute), doesn't say bye, but says instead "See you around" and is very direct, transparent and open about things, and has some Southern hospitality.

    However, she doesn't speak with an American accent, instead she still has her Surrey (the British one, not British Columbian one) English accent.

    Alice has researched about this due to her interest in the U.S. and wanting to avoid The Theme Park Version of American culture.

    Bob is confused as to why she would act very American especially as he knows from friends that Alice has never lived in the U.S. (and the creators of the show confirm it).

    Then, a few episodes later, a real American moves into the neighborhood in London, from Dallas, and she doesn't like Alice's attempt at being American and tries to antagonise her for what she feels is insulting to her country (she's fairly patriotic and hates anti-Americanism. Physically, she looks like Sophie Turner, aka Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones). This kicks off a Story Arc which runs into the next two seasons.

    Then another American moves into the neighborhood (a popular neighborhood for expats) and takes the hatred of Alice Up to Eleven, she wants to kill her for what she feels is making fun of her home country, the United States (this character being portrayed by Sarah Shahi, and a Californian who moved to London for work).

    The episode covers Webcomic Time from March 2014 to April 2016, even though in real-time, it's only been running for 3 weeks on CTV and ABC and is a 60-minute long (45 minutes without commercials) Police Procedural and Crime Time Soap-type drama. (sort of like a Lighter and Softer, but still serious Spin-Off from Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, the same way Supergirl is a Lighter and Softer version of Arrow according to the series' page)

    Is there a trope for this situation regarding nationality issues and the Story Arc? (excluding the Webcomic Time part) Reply

    In many series, for example Spice and Wolf and InuYasha, story end happily and couples are getting married. However, one of them were regular human with life expectancy of a hundred year or so at most, and the other member was a semi-human, semi-god, or whatever that have much longer or close to infinite life expectancy. Thus it is either implicitly or explicitly implied that, from the semi-human's point of view, he/she will lose their partner in a relatively short timespan in relations to their life. Usually, it is also implied that the character will become lonely again, although there can also be cases that it will be implied that the character would take care of families formed by their offspring and/or start a new relationship with their offspring and/or start new relationship/adventure afterward. In reverse, it could also be applied when one of the human with regular life expectancy marry with another individual that has unusually short life expectancy wither due to illness or species different or by their choice to live in a place that is bad to the life of the individual or as a consequences of using some megaweapon that used up their life power. It can also be implied or described before the series conclude, with the fate being revealed when the two first met or in the setting file of a series/story. What is the name of this trope? Reply
