Overrated And Underleveled
looks to me like a Sub-Trope
of Informed Ability
, i.e. the character is supposed to be a Bad Ass
, but his stats are more like a Noob
's or, at best, a Munchkin
To me, Restart at Level One
is when you've actually played as this character for a lot
longer than the Tutorial Level
but at some point in the game (in a platformer, it's after a few levels/acts, in an RPG it's around the time of the Disc One Final Dungeon
) suffers a depowering event and you still play as that same character afterwards.
If the depowering event happens at the end of the Tutorial Level
, what you have is A Taste of Power
If you drop to Level 1 due to a Class Change that you choose to do, then it's not this trope. Also not this Trope is when you go to Level 1, but it's later discovered that it's Lv 1 in a Prestige Class
(e.g. Cecil in Final Fantasy 4
). This latter instance might be Too Rare to Trope
And, as previously stated, Bag of Spilling
is a depowering between
As an analogy, the Tropes on the Left in the list below are to Video Games as those on the Right are to a Romance Arc
Hopefully, this makes at least my interpretation a bit easier to see.
