Hello. I was told to post my question here.
I was wondering, why the trope 'Breather Boss' is considered YMMV, but similar tropes likes 'Wake Up Call Boss' and 'Warm Up Boss' are not? I am assuming it is because 'Wake Up Call Boss' and 'Warm Up Boss' are not as subjective since they are usually deliberate by the designers, while a 'Breather Boss' is more subjective since an easy boss for someone could be a difficult boss for someone else.
In the ask the troper thread, I was told my interpretation of these tropes are correct. However, I do think a 'Breather Boss' can be consider a regular trope since some designers to put an easier boss after a particular tough dungeon or boss battle. As a gamer, I had my fair share of 'easy' bosses that ended up kicking my butt, but I do not think 'Breather Boss' should be YMMV like "That One Boss' since that is far more subjective in my opinion.
Of course, I want to hear what you guys think. I am not looking to change these tropes classifications, just have a better idea of why they divided the way they are.
