'''Basic Trope''': An old protagonist becomes the new antagonist in the sequel.
* '''Straight''': Bob was [[TheHero the main character]] in ''Heroes of Troperia''. [[BossBattle You get to fight him]] in ''Heroes of Troperia II: [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo Shadow Spaghetti]]''.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Bob is the BigBad in ''Shadow Spaghetti'', and you fight him in the ({{True|FinalBoss}}) FinalBattle.
** Every single hero in Heroes of Troperia series become the BigBad in the installment next to his or hers.
** In the epilogue of ''Heroes of Troperia: The Ultimate Final'' main hero Ted [[TimeTravel travels in time]] to the past and becomes BigBad of the first game.
* '''Downplayed''':
** Bob opposes the new heroes but isn't an out-and-out villain, just [[WeAreStrugglingTogether someone with a different idea of how to combat their mutual enemy]].
** In the sequel, Bob is an optional superboss, unimportant to the main storyline.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob is BrainwashedAndCrazy, or maybe TheParagonAlwaysRebels.
** The ending in ''Heroes of Troperia'' where he took over [[TheEmpire Empire of Evulz]] is canon, thus averting NoCanonForTheWicked.
** You play an amoral VillainProtagonist in ''Shadow Spaghetti''.
** Heroes of Troperia is a FightingGame, it's entirely Justified that you fight Bob, the winner of previous tournament.
** All of Bob's deeds in the first game were simply a ruse to get into a comfortable position for his grander plan. The sequel shows what he does after achieving this goal.
** Bob has a very good reason ([[WellIntentionedExtremist misguided or not]]) for stopping you in the sequel.
** Bob lost his role as TheChosenOne, meaning [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall player character]], and takes it out on the next chosen one.
* '''Inverted''': [[EvilOverlord Emperor Evulz]], the BigBad in ''Heroes of Troperia I'' become the player character in ''Shadow Spaghetti''.
* '''Subverted''': It's an impersonator, and Bob himself is not doing anything that hampers you.
* '''Double Subverted''': ...save for outfitting the imposter to assassinate you, that is.
* '''Parodied''': "JustForFun/{{Hello}}. [[MyNameIsInigoMontoya My name is Bob.]] [[YouKilledMyFather You took my]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall hero seat.]] PrepareToDie."
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''':
** ''Heroes of Troperia'' and ''Shadow Spaghetti'' are separated in a way that won't allow Bob to appear in the sequel, let alone fighting the current protagonist. Such way includes: long in-universe time skip, different world, or Shadow Spaghetti being a {{Prequel}}.
** Bob appears as a NPC, but he does not hinder the gamer(unless they choose to bad path, if their is one) and might even help the player.
** ''Shadow Spaghetti'' still has Bob as the protagonist.
* '''Enforced''': Bob's political views in ''Heroes of Troperia'' received vocal criticism for MoralGuardians, forcing his inclusion as an enemy in ''Shadow Spaghetti'' to distance the creator from Bob.
* '''Lampshaded''': "This ''would'' have been an honor to challenge you, Sir Bob." "It's ''Emperor'' Bob now, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch vermins]]."
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': Emperor Evulz is BackFromTheDead (the second time!) in ''Shadow Spaghetti'', [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome killed Bob when he was unaware]], and set himself up to be the BigBad once again.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Played For Laughs''': "Hey, weren't you a good guy [[BreakingTheFourthWall in the previous game]]?!" "Yes, but this Ultra Gore [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity Plus One]] [[ChainsawGood Chainsaw-Sword]] of Death 3000 is too awesome for little kids like you to use!" "[[HypocriticalHumor Weren't you a little kid too back then?!]]"
You can go back to RogueProtagonist, but be aware that he or she is likely to be Lv.99.
