Just went through Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
and Umineko no Naku Koro ni
. Updated Shion's status as a gadfly ( normally
and purged some of the remnant references to sliding scale of troll cruelty). I do want to discuss some potentially debatable examples with those aware of the works.
1. Lambdadelta. Very morally ambiguous and capricious. Is she a very dark gadfly or a low grade troll?
. We find out in the 5th and 6th novels that she intentionally does things to drive people to madness ( Shion in the 5th, Rena in the 6th via document 34
) not to mention having the Yaminu do mock hit and runs to further feed their paranoia as seen with Keiichi in the 1st and Rena in the 6th.
The anime and I think the manga doesn't make it clear if this is part of her other plots or that she does this for kicks. Is there a TIP that clarifys this issue? Manipulative Bastard
-Edit: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
, Kid Icarus: Uprising
, Umineko no Naku Koro ni
, Lucky Star
, Puella Magi Madoka Magica
, Azumanga Daioh
, School Days
, and Naruto
have been inspected. Glossed over the Disgaea
series. We have one low grade example (about Lambadelta's level) and a borderline example between Manipulative Bastard
(has been placed in the Characters Discussion section of Disgaea4
