Page Action: Above The Ruins
What would be the best way to fix the page?
Above The Ruins
is currently about someone destroying a location, escaping from it, and finding a high-up place to get a good view of the ongoing destruction. It's commonly seen after a Load Bearing Boss
Some people are using the trope to refer to any character looking at destruction or a ruined location from above.
Two possible fixes are to redefine it to fit the misuse, or a rename to make it sound less broad.
Note that Watching Troy Burn
already covers heart-wrenching scenes of a hero looking over a location that's been destroyed by a villain, and states that this is often done from a high vantage point.
