Is it possible for a Blood Knight to become a Shell-Shocked Veteran?

What's the difference between a Blood Knight and a Sadist?
06:53:23 AM Dec 5th 2016
A Blood Knight likes to fight.

A sadist likes to hurt people.

They generally don't even overlap much. A sadist's favorite part of a fight would be after the opponent is defeated and they're hurting them for fun's sake. A Blood Knight's favorite part is the fighting itself.

And how do you think a Blood Knight would react to a sadist?

Is a Blood Knight someone who fights just out of bloolust, or can it be a character for which bloodlust is just a side benefit and their motivation is different?

So, as I read before, is it possible for a hero being a Blood Knight ?
06:08:52 AM May 31st 2015
To quote the page : "A Blood Knight can be of any morality whatsoever." so yes
11:10:32 PM Jun 10th 2015
To be a blood knight, you have to love fighting. Morality plays no part in being a Blood Knight so yes, you can be The Hero and The Blood Knight or a Complete Monster and a Blood Knight.

Should Princess Cadance from MLP: FIM be added to this now? She seemed to enjoy fighting the Taztlwurm...Maybe a lil' too much. And why? Because she was BORED. X-0 At this rate she might end up being like Brave N' Bold Aquaman. XP

Is it about time to split this page?
12:21:09 PM Mar 14th 2013
Oh, yes, I agree.
06:40:18 AM Aug 19th 2012
Can I suggest this quote instead? "His is the fury of the wildfire, the boiling blood of the volcano. He fights you not because you've wronged him, but because you're there."

Blood Knight is a bit of a Non-Indicative Name for some examples, because some of the characters here just love to fight, but not so much because they're savages. Finn of Adventure Time, for instance.

I find it interesting that the Blood Knight is always seen as a bad thing. Living for battle isn't really inherently bad, in my mind, depending on what you're fighting for. For example, Rachel from Animorphs, is it really that bad to live for combat when you're fighting alien invaders who would wipe out your race through assimilation?

Interestingly, the Sliding Scale Of Antiheroes states that "Blood Knight is almost a requirement for a Type V". I completely agree that being a Blood Knight is NOT a bad thing. The pleasure derived from combat can be a good consilation prize for a Knight in Sour Armor (in fact, the protagonists of my story ideas can be described as "Blood Knights In Jade Armor").

Does a character count as a Blood Knight if they are an adrenaline junkie who is specifically addicted to the thrill of battle adrenaline?

Regarding quotes: Articles should have only one (or in rare cases two) quotes. The rest go on the Quotes subpage. If there is any concern over what would be the best page quote, please conduct it here in Discussion rather than by Edit Warring back and forth.

Why is this page still locked?
11:21:13 AM Oct 14th 2010
Yes, please, can we unlock it now?
12:13:26 PM Oct 31st 2010
It's unlocked now. I guess that some good came out of The Situation.

So, is a Blood Knight a calmer and more serious version of a Boisterous Bruiser (and in vice-versa, is a Boisterous Bruiser a more bombastic and cheerful Blood Knight)?

This troper just can't see a clear difference between the Blood Knight and Boisterous Bruiser as both tropes are about characters who enjoy combat. It would help if someone could clearly state a couple of key difference between the two tropes.
10:01:22 AM Oct 3rd 2010
Blood knight can be more grim about his slaughter. Boisterous-ness not required.
01:40:10 AM Oct 11th 2012
A Boisterous Bruiser doesn't automatically love battle above all else. Indeed, half the time he'll jump into a fight to end it, because it's getting in the way of his seduction of a pretty maiden, victory in a drinking contest or game of backgammon.

Not that there isn't crossover.

Example from One Piece manga/anime

The seven cp9 members are bloodknights by far higher degree than Zoro or Mihawk. When the Strawhat Pirates arrive at Enies Lobby, these seven psychos know how to milk every bit of fun outta them. They explain everything the heroes should need/like to know, they fight one-on-one, they talk about how the Buster Call is going to ruin the fun, and they even refer to the Strawhats as "prey" a couple of times.

Is there a reason the page is locked?
05:05:42 AM Jun 1st 2010
Yes. Currenly the Image pickin' forum is working on who ought to be the poster man. FYI, currently Mister Kenpachi is a prime candidate.
10:37:29 PM Jun 1st 2010
I can't find ANYTHING on that lobster entry...other than a sourceless article on wikipedia... so yea probably should delete that
11:08:39 PM Jun 20th 2010
I say stick to Death Dealer, as a tribute to his creator's memory.
08:53:00 PM Jun 29th 2010
wait, he's dead?
08:53:01 PM Jun 29th 2010
wait, he's dead?
08:58:20 PM Jul 5th 2010
Yeah May 10 this year
08:11:08 PM Jul 13th 2010
oh.....may he rest in peace...

So, is there a real reason this page is locked? Just put a picture of Khorne up or something.

No matter what it might be in tribute for, the content of Death Dealer still doesn't demonstrate the trope or even indicated that the illustrated character is even an example. It's honestly worse than not having an image because it makes the meaning of the article confusing.
10:02:45 PM Aug 14th 2010
Why not have an Image Links page? And really, how do you show with a single image that someone doesn't care about good or evil as much as they care about the fight?
05:37:12 PM Sep 11th 2010
Regardless of what image we choose for the Blood Knight page, I say we add a relevant caption to the image like "War Is Hell? Not for this guy."
