Adding this new topic for the argument regarding more minor characters since there's a minor edit war going on regarding Sardia and Lanzarote's inclusion.

As for my opinion on them, I personally don't think Sardia deserves an entry simply because she's such a one-note character who appeared in only one fight in the entire game, whereas the episode 4 was about getting to Lanzarote even if she only appeared in one fight and is a playable character. However, I think there are enough tropes for Sardia to stay plus she had an episode to herself in the Disgaea anime (which I thought was a waste of an episode to an already rushed and horribly done adaptation, but that's my personal opinion). Lanzarote needs more tropes though. Also, if Sardia is in, Krichevskoy's vassals needs to be included as well.

So is anyone going to put a picture of Xenolith? I find it odd how Sicily and Barbara have pictures yet Xenolith does not have a character image.

I know the page says Character tropes from Disgaea Dimension 2 should be placed here but what about the characters themselves? Should characters like Sicily and Xenolith be placed here as well or should there be a separate character page for them?

I'd say new characters be given a separate page

Looks like someone decided to put it all on one page.

I really want to put these in folders because the list of tropes here are huge (Especially Laharl's), but for some reason it never works. It's strange too because I've seen pages that managed to fit more into folders.

Would it be all right I changed Laharl's image out with this?:


I think it is much more representative of him and how he usually is, and the current image is kinda spoilerish because of the pendant.

IMO, the new image should use the art style from the first game, so as not to clash with the other characters.

Hey I am new her, and there is something that has been bugging me about one of the tropes listed on Etnas character tropes list, I just had to question the description of Etna as:

“Man Behind The Man: Of the Hyper Competent Sidekick variety, without her, the Netherworld would fall apart. She's really the one in charge of organization; and it's loyalty to the memory of Laharl's father that has her putting up with him.”

Especially the “Of the Hyper Competent Sidekick variety, without her, the Netherworld would fall apart” part, I don’t remember Etna doing anything in any game that was directly for the sake of the Netherworld or push Laharl to do so, the only thing was the zombie incident, and that was pretty minor thing that she used to teach Laharl a lesson. Laharl is always the one that does all the work, the thinking (coming up with plans) and generally doing his very best, the problems is that even if he puts all of his heart and soul into it, he is still a child with little to no experience, something that Etna shows almost no understanding of.

Though it is true that she does have immense power over him, as she can come with an ultimatum in order to push him to do whatever she wants him to do, so I guess she is kinda “in charge of organization”. The Hyper Competent Sidekick trope about Etna bugs me in general , as in the Prinny games Laharl is a Prinny, so the Overlord position is open and Etna has not taken it, even though Laharl asked her to take it if something happened to him(some sidekick she is).

In Prinny 2(I am from Europe, and the games is out on PSN her) one of the Prinnies mention that they think Etna does not want to deal with the responsibility of being an Overlord. But it is not like this is something new about Etnas character; Etna already in Etna Mode thought being the Overlord was “a big pain in the butt”, so it’s not like her fear of responsibility is a new thing.

And about the supposed Badass Decay Etna has received in the Prinny games compared to the main games; I would argue that the Prinny games are from the Prinnies perspective, and for a long time, even before the Prinny games, it has been exemplified that Etna treats the Prinnies horribly. So why would she seems like anything else but a spoiled brat in a game that is set from their perspective? The way I see it, it is brilliant.

I know then one see an example that seems wrong a troper is suppose to correct it, but I want to know what the troper in question was thinking about and what you guys think of this? I am new, so I don’t want to do something wrong.

First of all, Welcome to TV Tropes! If you have any further questions on rules or etiquette, inquire at Ask The Tropers.

Second, when deleting examples, you can either leave your explanation in the edit reason box or, if it's a lengthy reason and you wish to discuss it in detail, place it on the talk page like you've done now.

Third, I'd have to say your reasoning is valid. I'll remove the examples.
