A particularly singular archetype.

Name Space:
Page Type:
This is one of the big ones boys an Archetype so profound that while multiple examples may exist on this earth at a given time only one can be present in a single culture. This was never supposed to happen but a character for whatever reason rises through the minds of fans and writers and takes shape. Distinguished from the typical archetype in that while many may imitate it consciously or unconsciously its impossible to truly reverse engineer and all attempts are doomed to fail. May be polarizing and possess awe inspiring power possibly even provoking fear in those that gave them life. Since so few strong examples exist in each culture Monotypes often count as Unknown Archetypes. related tropes Archetype, Character Archetype, Unknown Archetype

    Do you even understand what an "archetype" mean?

    You seem to be doing this a lot, Knightwriter. Motion to Discard, neither of your attempts at archetype tropes are, in fact, archetypes. Not to mention that your descriptions of your apparent 'archetypes' make little to no sense.

    Knightwriter: I have something very important to tell you. Please read this carefully.

    • You are spamming YKTTW with proposals that are so confusingly written that no one can figure out what you're talking about.
    • Your proposals don't appear to be tropes in the way that term is used here on TV Tropes.
    • You haven't included any examples in either of your proposals, which raises the question of whether your proposed tropes even have any.

    I strongly suggest you stop posting new proposals here until you:

    • Read YKTTW Guidelines, which tells you how to write YKTTW's.
    • Read through other proposals on YKTTW and learn how to write them appropriately.
    • Find at least three examples of your proposed trope(s) and include them in your initial post.

    If you decide to ignore this message and continue posting new proposals without doing the above it is very likely that one of the tropers here will complain to the moderators and they will suspend you from participating in YKTTW.

    "Do you even understand what an "archetype" mean?" Yes I've read much of Joseph Campbell I'm expanding the concept from observations I've made over the years in regards to the past 50 years of serialized fiction.

    claiming you know a topic is kinda not enough, it's gotta show in your formatting. It's like claiming you're an English major despite utterly failing in basic punctuation.

    see Text Formatting Rules.
