Supertrope for Deflector Shields?:
Deflector Shields clearly covers invisible defenses in science fiction, but there does not appear to be a trope covering the same sort of phenomenon when it is generated by a supernatural force. Should examples of the latter (there are many to be found in anime, for instance, ) go under Deflector Shields? Would it be worth having an alternative trope/supertrope?
ThatawayGenerally, Lost and Found is where you go to find tropes, and YKTTW is where you go to float new ones. I'm not really sure that Deflector Shields needs a supertrope, but if it does, I'd say it falls somewhere between Pure Energy and Hard Light. Actually, what you're looking for is probably Force Field, which redirects to Deflector Shields. So apparently people don't think it's distinct enough as a concept; we just talk about the sci-fi version more. Also look at Barrier Warrior, which is someone who fights using a personal Deflector Shield.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
