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
- a. A serious or tragic role in a play. b. An actor playing such a role.
- Slang A villain in a story or play.
- Slang A mobster.
- 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

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
