Disambig sounds good. And it's a ready plan B since renaming got an administrative veto.
Piffy
I can get behind a disambig.

Disambig sounds good.

Note that in works, the term has multiple meanings. The theatre definition is not the only definition found in fiction, because fiction has a wide variety of media—it's not all theatre.

I mentioned the dictionary on the first page of the discussion. Repeating what I quoted there:

n. pl. heav·ies
  1. a. A serious or tragic role in a play. b. An actor playing such a role.
  2. Slang A villain in a story or play.
  3. Slang A mobster.
  4. Slang One that is very important or influential: a media heavy.

I think they lost some nuance, but def. 3 is actually the one I'm most familiar with, as a fan of Hardboiled Detective stories.

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
Three games and can't fully use sword
[up]That means the disambig will look like this:

Not to be confused with the character from Team Fortress 2.

By the way, can I finally rename The Heavy now that we've come down to this?

Hey! Cut it out!
The disambig would also have to include the band The Heavy too.

Three games and can't fully use sword
[up]I'll keep that in mind once that YKTTW gets launched.

We're going to move the current description of The Heavy to Plot Driving Villain and turn it into a disambiguation once that YKTTW gets launched, in fact.

I'd wait until the YKTTW is launched, personally. You might irritate Fast Eddie if you wipe out a page he already restored once.

I think you'll have to summarize the course of action in a post and then ask it to be edited in the OP and pinned.

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