Playing With: Boss Subtitles
Basic Trope: Video game boss is introduced by name and title.
  • Straight:
The Tyrant Who Slaughtered Gods
Emperor Evulz
  • Exaggerated: The subtitle consists of many, many words...
The Tyrant Who Slaughtered Gods, In Their Palace in Heavens,
During The Festival of The Tenth Month, When They Were Totally Not Expecting It.
Emperor Evulz
  • Downplayed: The subtitle consists of single word...
Godslayer
Emperor Evulz
  • Justified: The subtitle and the name is provided by Mission Command, the character also see it in his screen.
  • Inverted: The player character has the subtitle which appears when he fights a boss, and it explains why he fights the boss...
The Man With Epic Vendetta
Bob
  • Subverted: ???
  • Double Subverted: ???
  • Parodied:
    • The subtitle doesn't bother trying to make the boss more intimidating...
Tiny, Tiny Commander
Emperor Evulz
  • The name of the boss is already a description.
The Tyrant Who Slaughtered Gods
The Tyrant Who Slaughtered Gods
  • They mix up the name and the subtitle.
Emperor Evulz
The Tyrant Who Slaughtered Gods
The Emperor Named Evulz
Emperor Evulz
Murderer of Fatal Death that Kills to Death
Emperor Evulz
  • The subtitle is misspelled.
Teh tyrent Who sloutered Gosd
Emperor Evulz
Eternal Bringer of Death
The Goomba
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: No bosses are given subtitles in a genre where it's taken for granted.
  • Enforced: The game has minimalist plot and/or minimalist interface, and the subtitles are the means to convey the sheer badassery of the bosses.
  • Lampshaded:
    Bob: "You're going down, Godslayer Evulz!"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: The Mission Command is purposefully feeding Bob wrong information via the subtitles to goad him into fighting beings who have never done what their subtitles indicate. Cue Bob's Heroic BSOD when he realizes that he has been duped.
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Played For Laughs:
    • The title is written like this:
The Cutest King of Teddy Bears, Hugs and Rainbows
Emperor Evulz
  • Alice laughs and lets Evulz know about the title. He angrily demands that whoever wrote his title like that be executed, and fixes the title himself. This is the fixed title:
The Cutest Emperor of Teddy Bears, Hugs and Rainbows
Emperor Evulz
  • The titles reflect what the currently active character thinks of the boss, resulting in titles like this:
Creepy Ugly Mean Guy
Emperor Evulz
