TV Tropes' Characters Page

Post by Robert Frazer on Sun 5 Dec 2010 - 0:52

The GSG article over at that infamous link-clicking timesink tvtropes.org has recently acquired a Characters Page. It's where each heroine can be dissected, distilled, codified, and otherwise pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed and numbered in that tidily elemental and oddly satisfying way. I've helped expand the tropes applicable to each of the characters featured, but it's still looking a little bare (and has nothing for the handlers and villains) so if anyone else wants to chip in and add some more detail that I've missed then it would be useful.

When you are there, fix this:
Dojikko: Trips often enough in missions and in training, likely due to her not adjusting well to her implants.

This only occurred after her multiple rewrites, erasing her past training and her memory which later leads to brain rot which kills her in the end. Originally Angie set the standard for all the other cyborgs to follow. Her 6 kills in 5 seconds in the anime (The Pasta Prince episodes of Series 1) shows that she is not a Dojikko.

Having looked in on the tvtropes site before I expected this to be silly generalization, but you've come up with some insightful summaries here.

The only thing that raises my eyebrows a bit is that this is a television meme focused site, while you've referenced several events that occur only in the manga (thus far), and even some conjecture limited to this forum.
None of this creates a problem of course. I hope your well written breakdowns inspire some new interest in the GsG story.

How is it possible that ‘The Wesley’ was left off Petra’s list?

I ought to say that I'm not the only one who's hand a hand in building up this page, nor am I claiming possession of it (I did make a page for The Wild Geese from scratch, but again it's a wiki, anyone can edit) - if it occurs to anyone else to add a trope, then by all means go ahead!

The only thing that raises my eyebrows a bit is that this is a television meme focused site, while you've referenced several events that occur only in the manga (thus far), and even some conjecture limited to this forum.

Well, TVTropes has expanded beyond its original definition. It keeps the original name for the sake of brand recognition (and it's probably a hassle reminding everyone to update their bookmarks), but it now covers films, books, comics, videogames, fanfiction, advertisements, the entire media circus. I suppose it's handy as a resource for people to just generally gas about and raise the flag for wider recognition of their favourite shows, without having Wikipedia's desperate obsession with respectability having them be chopped by the Notability axe.

TV Tropes can go die in a fire. So much of my precious time, wasted.

I wish I knew how to quit you. NO

Don't we all Nacht. Don't we all...

Actually, scratch that. No matter how many times TV Tropes keeps me up until 5 in the morning with the reading and the clicking and the etcetera, I always get a kick out of it. I may curse it out when I finally break free of its clutches, but I always go back. It's an addiction. I think I'm going to have to make an account soon, though that might just worsen the problem, by allowing me the ability to contribute, instead of just read.

I'd help out with the characterizations, but I know the result if I go onto that page right now, and I don't want to. I'll be back though. For sure.

I've opened a listing on the Character page for Speranza Guellfi. Feel free to add to it.
