Playing With: Mighty Glacier

Basic Trope: A character who is extremely strong, but slow.
  • Straight: Tom is an extremely strong fighter, but moves very slowly.
  • Exaggerated: Tom can punch through a tank, but takes an hour to cross the street.
  • Downplayed:
    • Tom is extremely strong but is actually also fast. However, he lacks the agility to make good use of his speed.
  • Justified:
    • All that muscle in Tom's body is slowing him down.
    • Tom comes from a martial arts school that focuses on strength at the expense of speed.
    • Tom uses the heaviest weaponry. It's impossible to move quickly with all of that gear.
    • Tom is a superhero whose special ability grants him great strength at the cost of great speed.
  • Inverted: Tom is weak and fast.
  • Subverted:
  • Double Subverted:
    • ...For about five feet before becoming exhausted.
  • Zig Zagged: Tom can beat inexperienced Mooks, but he moves very slowly (Straight). Following a Time Skip, Tom's strength matches that of a god's; unfortunately, he has the speed of a three-toed sloth (Exaggerated). However, it's because Tom received special armor that, at the cost of much speed, gave him much strength (Justified). Tom vows to work on his speed; in the process, he forgets his strength (Inverted).
  • Averted: Tom is not particularly strong or slow.
  • Enforced: "For balance, we'll need someone to contrast the fast but weak Luke."
  • Lampshaded: "You think that with all the training Tom does, he'd focus a bit on his speed."
  • Invoked: Tom is entering a lifting competition where speed is unnecessary. So he only improves his strength.
  • Exploited: Tom often uses his strength to catch Mooks who think that they can easily fight a slow guy without a problem off guard.
  • Defied: "I'll work on my speed, even if it means I'll have to be weak."
  • Discussed: "Let's have Tom go in first. He can probably take out all of the guards without a problem. Provided they don't run away first, that is."
  • Conversed: "Wow, lookit at them guns!" "Yeah. Small wonder he's so slow, the muscle tension must be hideous!"
  • Deconstructed:
    • Tom is killed by Luke, who enters and exits his range of attack too fast for him to hit them.
    • As soon as Luke shoots or stabs a vital area, Tom's strength becomes useless.
  • Reconstructed:
    • Tom anticipates where Luke will appear and manages to defeat him with a single blow.
    • Tom acquires ranged attacks to compensate for his lack of movement speed.
  • Played For Laughs: Speedy Luke goes down with a single punch when he enters Tom's attack range. Tom slowly ambles away while whistling a jaunty tune.
