I don't think the description of Broken Messiah is really merge-able with Broken Hero, nor Heroic Self-Deprecation, but the name does seem to invite misuse. A clearer name should be sufficient, IMO.

That it's similar to Broken Hero though they are unrelated suggests it should be renamed too.
Bumb. I see three options discussed so far

1. Cutting for not being a trope

2. Merging into another trope

3. Renaming for clarity.

Have I missed anything?

Looks like that's all the options.

The second option will need an article specified or else we'll end up disagreeing on which article to merge this into.
There are a lot of tropes mentioned earlier. I'd look at the relationship with this trope.

Regarding the second option, suggested pages to merge into so far was Broken Hero and Heroic Self-Deprecation. Although I still don't believe the definitions are really merge-able...

So, this trope seems like a combination of Fatal Flaw/Mr. Vice Guy and Internalized Categorism. It's definitely a Sister Trope to Heroic Self-Deprecation, though I don't think it's quite the same thing.

Broken Hero seems completely unrelated.

Maybe Minor Vice Overreaction? 90% Good is Not Good Enough?

Seeing nothing done, let's lock 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.
