Mark Anthony's hugely impressive "Snows always melt" line needs to be included, but what exact trope is it?

Implied Death Threat, I think, or at least that's what the optimates consider it, which he halfway denies. It's a running gag with the character.

ETA: Yep, I listed it as an example in the main series article.

  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: Vorenus crucifies people for information in his first episode, collects his part of the spoils from Allesia on slaves that he plans to sell to pay for his retirement and becomes the ruthless lord of the Roman underworld in Season 2. The show manages to make you cheer for him the entire time.

i questioned this example in Ask The Tropers. The answer was: "I think the Protagonist Centered Morality point here is not an in-universe example like it should be. It's talking more about the audience liking the protagonist in spite of Values Dissonance rather than the other characters. "
