Glass Ninja

A character is Fast and hits hard but falls quickly.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
A glass ninja is a character with high stats in speed and attack but low defense. They make use of their abilities to hit and run either dealing a lot of damage with one powerful attack, or with thousands of weaker attacks. The Glass Ninja possibly deals a lot of damage using momentum.

Compare Mighty Glacier, Stone Wall, Fragile Speedster, Jack-of-All-Stats, Lightning Bruiser and Glass Cannon.

    So, this is a Fragile Speedster with high attack stats. Not sure that warrants a separate trope.

    @ Mona Naito They're essentially a combination of glass cannon and fragile speedster. However the Mighty Glacier is a combination of Stone wall and glass cannon and that's a trope.

    Are Glass Cannons necessarily slow? I'm not sure this is distinct enough.

    I don't know why it wasn't launched.

    Alright. I just need a better name than Glass Ninja then I'll launch that old YKTTW. It needs to be distinct from the rest of the archetypes.

    @ Bobchillingworth Historically cannons were slow, powerful, and their operators wore less armor than other troops so yeah cannon does imply slow.

    I'm going to discard this, this has been launched as Paper Ram.

    It should b e noted that Paper Ram shouldn't of been launched in the first place and people are trying to unlaunch it.
