Cleaning up the sliding scale:Ok, here's the course of action:
Create Analysis.Anti Hero and plug in the revisionDone.
Redirect the Sliding Scale of Anti-Heroes to Analysis.Anti Hero.Done.
Remove the Sliding Scale from all the wicks.Done.
- Remove the Sliding Scale from all Anti-Hero wicks.
How we will do this:
- Purge all Zero Context Examples. That includes Type I-V labels.
- If the label has context, replace it with the appropriate tropes that were split off. The correspondence can be found below.
|Type I||Classical Anti-Hero|
|Type II||Knight in Sour Armour|
|Type III||Pragmatic Hero|
|Type IV||Unscrupulous Hero|
|Type V||Nominal Hero|

- Merge Antihero and Sliding Scale Of Antiheroes into a single page that describes the general concept of an antihero, its precedents and the historical context in which each type arose.
- Have a short description of each type, along with no more than three well-known, particularly illustrative examples, to be selected by discussion.
- Make separate pages for the various types of antihero, which go into considerably more detail on how each type works and why it differs from a traditional hero. On these pages, all the other examples can be listed. I suggest creating the following:
- Classical Antihero: Type I, antihero as loser. The guy with personal problems who has to struggle to beat the villain. Examples include Peter Parker, Shinji Ikari.
- Disney Antihero: Type II. This guy is a decent chap who saves the day, but makes snarky comments along the way and lacks tact. Examples include Warren Peace.
- Dangerous Antihero: Type III. Intends to do the right thing, but doesn't much care about who she hurts. May cause more trouble than if she'd just left well enough alone. Examples include Atem.
- Vicious Antihero: Type IV. She's in it purely for herself, but does have some redeeming features. Examples would probably include Scrooge McDuck, prior to character development.
- Evil Antihero: Type V. Would be a villain, except their enemies are even worse. Examples include Alucard
