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.

A Wizard boyThe 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?

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