Danger, Yay!

Characters are faced with danger. Characters express excitement, enthusiam, and joy.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
You'd expect people to panic, fear, or at least worry, when they are faced with the prospect of danger and death. Not these guys. Maybe they're adrenaline junkies. Maybe they love fighting. Maybe they enjoy the challenge. Whatever the case, they'll react to the shadow of harm and death with a casual smile and a boast: Bring It!

    Ins't this Death Seeker or Foe Yay ??

    A Death Seeker wants to be killed. Foe Yay is when enemies appear to be attracted to each other. I don't see the correlation.

    That said, this might be Blood Knight.

    Often happened in Get Smart, and was one of Max's catch phrases.
    The Chief: Max, you realize you'll be facing every kind of danger imaginable!
    Maxwell Smart: And... loving it.

    Monkey D. Luffy in One Piece chose to become a pirate captain primarily for this. He always wants interesting things happening around him, so he runs headfirst into perilous situations in hopes of finding something fun in it.

    "It's guns! I love guns! ...machine guns? That's even better! This could be fun! Sounds like death, and danger. Daaanger, daaaaanger... What's happening in the dining car? Is there blood? Who's killing who? Where did they get shot? I have to see! Things are really starting to get exciiiiting! Yes! Yes yes yes! YES YES YES YES YES!" - Ladd Russo

    • In Newshounds, Rochelle. Though she sees it as a problem and tries to curb her danger-lust when she starts dating Wolfram and especially after she gets pregnant.

    Doctor Who: Alonsy!

    ^^ Actually it's spelled "Allons-y!"

    @Bisected and Little Lizard: Blood Knight likes fighting, these people like being in dangerous situations in general, even if it doesn't involve violence at all. Example: rock climbers getting excited at a steep cliff, skaters getting excited at dangerous slopes...

    And, actually in Luffy's case... one day, their navigator got a compass that, according to the givers, got more twitchy the more dangerous their destination was. Her reaction was a panicked "I DON'T WANT TO KNOW THAT! PLEASE BREAK IT RIGHT NOW!". Cue Luffy, who overheard, immediately and predictably come over and select the most dangerous destination available.

    So Luffy doesn't fit what you're going for?

    • Dinosaurs: Baby is latched onto Earl's tail. Earl flaps around trying to get Baby to let go. Baby gets bashed into the wall.
      Baby: AGAIN!
    • The Simpsons: Bart is strapped to a hole-driller. The drill goes down, then back up. "Again!" Drill goes down, then back up. "Again!" Drill goes down, then back up. "OK, that's enough."
      • When Sideshow Bob's brother Cecil tries to kill Bart, Lisa, and Bob, they have a harrowing escape through a water pipe that almost drowns them. When they get out:
      Bart: Let's go again, let's go again!

    • In the Newsflesh-verse, bloggers who react this way become Irwins. They go out and find zombies to bait for fun and entertainment. And there are a lot of strict rules they must follow and tests they must pass for this privilege.

    its just in harms way, not a different trope.

    Wasn't In Harms Way about a Hero being unable to stay away from danger? This would be a sister or even supertrope, but being enthusiastic when danger shows up isn't the same thing as proactively abandoning peace and safety to look for it. Though Luffy fits both tropes, the Spartans of 300 only fit this one: they would much rather stay at home in their idyllic, pastoral city, than go fight pointless battles.

    @Zombie: No, Luffy fits it perfectly, that example was to underline how impossibly well he fits it.

    Borderline example but I'll let the tropers decide:

    In Skyward Sword, an adventurous Goron is well-versed in the universe's mythology and history. Despite Link's ending up in some dangerous, potentially deadly situations, the Goron is optimistic about the prospect of mysteries and adventures.

    Andromeda probably does this at some point. Of course, for much of the series, the main characters are more powerful and look for trouble. ("Somebody should teach them a lesson. And I think it should be us.") Of course, they also become a little Genre Savvy...

    Jackass: In the second film, the gang is dared to take part in the test of a really nasty riot control mine. Ryan Dunn and Dave England run out of the room, but Johnny Knoxville simply giggles excitedly.

    • In an early episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Buffy tries to go on a date with a guy and ends up caught up in a slaying. In an attempt to neither tell him what's actually going on nor break off the date, she tries to bring him with her, and he ends up in the action as well. She expects him to break up with her afterwards...but actually, he's completely psyched and totally ready to do that again. However, Buffy rejects him and breaks up, recognising that this behaviour is ultimately destructive.

    The Last Starfighter:

    Alex Rogan: Hold it! There's no fleet? No Starfighters, no plan? One ship, you, me, and that's it? Grig: Exactly! Xur thinks you're still on Earth. Classic military strategy, surprise attack. Alex Rogan: It'll be a slaughter! Grig: That's the spirit!

    • The typical reaction of Orks in Warhammer 40 K, who will happily jump into any available battle.
    • The Wee Free Men of Discworld are much the same.

    Would a character who Jumped At The Call be likely to have this reaction?
