The previous thread settled on keeping imageless. I'm fine with it, but here's an option that wasn't presented.

No, the other one.
I kinda like that. A single image with clear numbers, and green usually represents healing. If it's poison, I tend to see it in a different shade. It does require the basic knowledge of what those numbers are, but on a Video Game trope, that much can be assumed to be common knowledge.

I kinda like it too. Would it help if we had the spell's name in the image, or mention it in the caption?

The skill is called "Drain". It's from Final Fantasy X. The game uses a help bar at the top to identify attacks during battles.

No, the other one.
I think it would help if that box could be edited in, if it's done well enough to not clash.

Is there still time to [tup] the OP suggestion?

[up] I've run out of time to do significant work in here, so this can certainly sit and gather more [tup]s.
[tdown] I say the flashes of light illustrate nothing. And the trope is not so hard to understand that two differently-colored numbers would make it any clearer, even for a reader familiar with RP Gs.

[up] I like that better than the OP. It's more interesting.

That seems better, yes.
A lil' bentô ?
[up][up][up] I dunno, it looks good indeed, but it could also be interepreted as Your Soul Is Mine.

Yeah, tht's Your Soul Is Mine.

I like the OP. The smaller points of light flowing to Wakka illustrate movement, which works for this trope.
I have a message from another time...

+1 for "the last suggestion looks too close to Your Soul Is Mine".

...that brings the question - would it work better on that page? The pic on there seems more like soul destruction than soul stealing.

No, the other one.
I think it's slightly better on that page. Not a lot, but a little.

^^ Agree. That would be a major improvement I think.

Alright, I'll start a thread for that one soon. Here's the OP at 350...thoughts?

Restating my previous support.
I don't like it. Two differently-colored numbers? The entire message is "an attack that damages your opponent and heals you", which is communicated clearly by those words. It is not communicated clearly by that image.

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.
