default Trope Yourself!

Post by Gouka on 18/04/13, 12:31 am

Through conversation in a different thread, I became interested in figuring out what trope my husband best fit into. He seems like he could be very tsundere, but is he really? I fell back on tvtropes.org (a site that sucks you in!) for my research and, after comparing Tsundere with Jerk with a Heart of Gold, decided, yes, he's so tsundere.

Then I thought... what about me? After reading several different tropes, I finally found Sugar and Ice Personality and it fit perfectly. Even before I reached a part that mentions its relationship with tsundere, I knew I'd found my trope. I disagree that this would make me kuudere as well which doesn't have the variety in the way the icy personality is displayed.

So now I'm curious... what is your trope? If you were in an anime/manga/game, what type of character would you be? Not who you would like to be, but looking honestly at how you act in real life, what is your trope? Feel free to explain why (or not!). How about your significant other or friends? Do you think a group that already exists in anime/manga/otome portrays your relationships?

Ok, I'll go first!
( ^-^)人(^-^ )
Why Sugar and Ice Personality? Well, whether it's because of shyness or annoyance (or both), I often try to keep people at a distance and freeze up around people I don't know. When I warm up (or act like I'm warming up), I can be a sweetheart, but there's always some Deadpan Snarker waiting to surface. I often get the "I can't believe you'd do that. You're so nice." At which point I laugh at them. Yes, I am nice. I also don't care quite as much as you think I do. I'm fun that way. Or, as my husband calls it, cruel and insane. :twisted: But I don't think I'm a Mood Swinger since I don't really have extremes.

I looked in the forum rules and didn't see anything prohibiting linking. (Mods: If it's a No-no, though, just let me know and I'll remove them!) I'm hoping everyone can link their trope for easy reading! Or, tell us the name of a character (and the source material) that's just like you so we have a better idea!

(Oh, I realize that when it comes to the internet, all bets are off. I'm much more open on the 'net and I bet a lot of others are, too. So this is for real life!!)

There are several tropes that encompass me as a person, but do not fit me as a whole.

I am a Dandere; extremely shy and quiet but I warm up and talk when I am alone with the person. But along with this I am a Shrinking Violet, people actually scare me, I can't look them in the eye and I walk with my head down - my hair covering my face.

Despite the shy tropes I actually have something hiding Beneath The Mask - but it's not the typical 'hiding a bitchy personality' I am hiding sass. I love myself, but not like the narcissist trope. I love who I am, I am confident and I think I am beautiful; I just have a fear of people.

I used to just be the shrinking violet who hated herself but somewhere along the line I Grew a Spine and learnt to love myself.


This was fun!

I don't have much of an attention span for this kind of things so I'll just tell you what I believe I am (I discuss it with my friends sometime so it's kinda reliable)
I'm something inbetween a Deredere and a Himedere. I'm narcissistic (yeah I'm) and by nature I tend to control ^^'' but I guess I'm happy-go-lucky most of the time so no need to run away <.<
oh and I'm a tomboy and I always believe it would be better to the world if I was born a boy but then I get to know animes and otoges with bishounens so I'm happy now ^^
... despite what I said just before, I can be super shy though... maybe it's because I've never really liked someone I don't know much ^^''

yeah.. :D

I'm also a dandere ^_^ at least in real life, I'm not so sure online hahaha.

Sadly, also I'm a Master of None. I can do a lot of things but I'm not that good enough in any of them. I have no specialty, so to speak. xD

well it's cool if you're friends with people who have tolerence >.> to be honest I'm more of a spoiled princess if you take it like that.. and my friends say that somehow I can make all the conversation turn to me... like when it's someone else's problem I go on about what 'I' would do .... ORE-SAMA!! (a tomboy himedere maybe :D))
heheh but I believe moe or shy is better in a lot of aspects ^^'

@Cuddlebump Aaai, I love your descriptions! You would make a wonderful character! I'd love to see that hidden side come out, particularly when you stand up for something important to you! I keep picturing Hinata from Naruto when I read your description.

@umi~ Ooh himedere. Had to go look it up (despite the name making it obvious, I needed to be certain!) so my -dere vocabulary has grown. I never expected himedere!

@eigen Master of None just gave me flashbacks to college. So hard choosing a major... Good link! It has a lot more on that page that I'm now going to waste 30 mins reading through. :D

@Kopin Oooh good idea! Which one did you use? (And, like Cuddle, I'm not sure what kanedere indicates.) Anyone have a suggestion for a good one? Googling returned so many that I'm a bit wary. I went with this one, which did return the result Coodere/Kudere for me (which is the closest I'd get to Sugar & Ice), so maybe it's accurate? Who knows! Laughing dududu

Update: Just got Dandere from this quiz. It was interesting with some strange questions. Still, Dandere and Kuudere are similar, so I'll accept it.

I personally believe that relying on tropes and labels just kinda shoehorns characters and plots and sucks all the creativity out of them. Yes, there's fallbacks and cliches in popular media, but we don't always have to rely on them!

Well obviously, I'm perfect. .Kidding, kidding. I don't think I really fit into one trope because my behaviour is kind of inconsistent but I consistently use "boku" when speaking Japanese so Bokukko is probably relevant.

lots of people like to call me tsundere though, they're a bunch of liars.

I've taken a tumblr quiz before for this kind of thing. None of the deres fit me. I am the easy going boke that you need in your life. It's even better when I don't have a tsukkomi to knock me around for it XD.

Hmm, let's see, let's see...

When I went and read the quote on Master of None page ("A Jack of All Trades, who is incompetent in all of them") it struck a major bull's eye right through mine heart. So I guess that's one of them. I realize I've been told a decent number of times that when I'm not actively interacting with someone, I tend to look intimidating/scary, so I guess the Kuudere trope is appropriate. I'm quiet and shy, but lately I've realize that it has more to do with being unfit to socialize than with shyness, I'm too much of a Socially Awkward Hero that it really... pains me to realize such a thing. >.> I'm very introverted (which is why I had time to type this out instead of, you know... go outside and do stuff) and I guess that most accurate introversion trope for me is The Hermit. Minus the disregard to society's normalcy and whatever. I'm generally a decent person with a Berserk Button that is unfortunate in the way that my tear ducts are shallow as all hell and actually going on a rant turns me into The Crybaby.

... Aaaaaaand I think that's it. XD
people have said i'm tsundere buuut no just no

I'm pretty sure I'd qualify as a mixture of tropes. Around most people I'm absolutely a Shrinking Violet combined with a bit of Sugar and Ice. But get me around my friends and family and I'm a Genki Girl. I also have periods of Tsundere, to my friends and the guy I have my eye on at that point in time. Annndd may I add that I am Older than I Look? People mistake me for being in middle school, or worse, elementary school, which often leads to me taking the role of the (ugh I don't like saying this since it makes me sound pretentious and all) the Cutie. Mostly because I do deliberately play up the childlike manner and innocence. But if someone is picking on me, I'll turn into the Cute Bruiser. And you'll never see it coming (:

Wow I really dislike referring myself as cute but the descriptions are so accurate that I just *cries*

YES the grade question and I'm all "...I'm in college?" But it's just glorious (sometimes) seeing the person's face change while they're panicking and apologizing about getting it wrong. There are advantages like if I'm indulging in something that's meant for younger kids in public, I don't get weird looks from the people around me and that's a big plus because I love cute childish stuff.

*gasp* A-are you me? :shock:
I'm Sugar and Ice, Shrinking Violet, Deadpan Snarker, and a little of The Stoic. xD;; Like if you bump into me I'll just look at you coldly and walk away w/o even saying or reacting anything. >_<
I usually don't say a lot around strangers but my friends actually say that I'm noisy because I talk a lot. And I say a lot of snarky retorts when i warm up. XD;;

*edited! lol i tend to skip the words i had in my head XD;;;

This is relevant for me too, even my extended family is like "What? When did you grow-up? You're not pulling my leg are you?" orz... At least looking young is a good thing, right? xD

@Kopin I wondered if that was the meaning of kanedere but hadn't heard of that. Here's a little money emoticon for you... (・∀・)つ⑩ teehee

@KawaiiMess The less a writer keeps a character in one trope (or in any trope), the more likely they'll have an interesting, well-developed and possibly even realistic character. Still... I find tropes to be fun and enjoy reading about them (and even watching them) and realizing how some relate to real life. Some times you might even find it's Truth in Television. wink

@Topaztan hehehe You know, in those don't-tell-anyone-about-them fantasies about bishies, I'm always a Mary Sue (possibly Cursed with Awesome). And I think Bokukko is awesome! When I took Japanese in college, I was annoyed that I was told there were pronouns I wasn't "allowed" to use to refer to myself. F that!

@Ace of Hearts I didn't know about Boke and Tsukkomi even though now that I read the description I can think of examples in anime. Cool!

@Her Cheshire Smile (T^T) Waaaah! I empathize with your tropes so much. *crying hug*

@Saefiya Yay, Genki Girl! One of my favorite types of characters to watch. ヽ(´▽`)/ I love the page's description of it, too. Aah, the rest of your tropes make a hilarious combo! And *hug* for the cute being so sadly accurate.

@Eryx ***bumps into Eryx on the street and ( ಠ_ಠ) (σ_σ ) ...... (σ_σ ) ( ಠ_ಠ) never realizes the kindred spirit*** Oh, except we're on the internet, so it's okay. *sends friend request* And yes! I feel like when I'm with someone I'm truly comfortable with, I'm in danger of becoming a chatterbox, but ONLY with them. I've actually gotten pretty good at being superficially polite (thanks to my job), but if anyone wants more than a vague smile as I walk by then I mentally throw up my hands to try to ward them off.

Ohohoh, another Mary Sue. <3 Let's go out and make everyone jealous with our sexy bishounen boyfriends~~.

When it comes to pronouns I certainly won't be using ore anytime soon, but then again I won't be using atashi either. The Japanese teacher at the high school I went to thought me using boku was really funny and I'd just switch to watashi like everyone else later. It took him TWO semesters to stop laughing at me & just accept it.

Sounds good to me. But we should probably finish saving the world first. Or let the boys help so we can all be big damn heroes. Hopefully we don't run into any more perfect people though, or we'll have the Thirty Sue Pileup.

**curbs the linkage**

That's too funny. Particularly because in the end you triumphed. I think my college professor would have failed me if I didn't bend to her wishes. She always seemed a little scary.

I remember going to a host club and sitting across strangers. My friend asked me what's gotten into me and I was so quiet. I didn't notice it until she told me. She said, "That's so not you haha!". xDD
My previous job is like that too! xD Although I remain cold and stoic with my workmates at first.

It's not our fault that being this awesome is such a curse. Being the Chosen One is a difficult job, okay. I don't think there are people as perfect as us, we are special, after all.

Also, my stars are at the Mary Sue level, I'M SO PROUD OF MYSELF.

All the professional Japanese teachers I've met have been pretty laid back, it might just be because my level of Japanese is already higher than what they were teaching. But, I have only met high school level teachers.

Oh this! Well I took a quiz, I don't know... it did said, I'm a tsunshun . Sigh.

Tsunshun comes from the words "tsuntsun", meaning, "to turn away in disgust", "shun", coming from a sound effect that implies melancholy, sadness, or sorrow. In other words, you're much like a tsundere, but when you get mad at people and act tsundere towards them, you end up getting depressed about it.

Well if I'd say so, I can be a tsunshun. Bust still. Maybe Sugar and Ice? I can be cold, bossy and just plain irritated to everyone at one point. But I can be cheerful and friendly as well. Sometimes. Or maybe Beneath the Mask? I'm sure though everyone thinks of me as this girl who doesn't make a lot of friends, just because I don't smile at first glance which leaves them a bad impression. Oh and maybe Cute Bruiser too!
