A request to people who've seen this show: can someone update the entry for Legend of the Seeker for Super Weight? It's a Just for Fun homegrown ranking at TV Tropes of measuring characters' relative power in a story, divided into nine broad categories. The entry according to the old criteria was this (and can be found on the medium subpage's discussion page):

  • Fanservice - In the first five minutes of the pilot, we have Dennee's heaving bosom as well as a shirtless Richard chopping wood and hauling logs and planks around. The Fanservice continues throughout the series with Sexy Backs and Shirtless Scenes all around.
  • Sexy Back - Happens almost as often as the Shirtless Scenes.

Sexy Back has been split into Toplessness from the Back and Sexy Backless Outfit, but this description doesn't give enough context to determine which it should be. Please check both definitions and put it under the correct trope.

Isn't the Bloodline episode in the 1st season an example of With Great Power Comes Great Insanity? In fact, ridiculously so, as Richard becomes corrupt the instant he acquires the powers of the Boxes of Orden.

It could be. Though I'd point out he only really went overboard when he found out Denna couldn't resurrect his mother.

Have to say, sucks that this isn't getting renewed.

Agreed. Season 1 was bland, boring and bog-standard. Hero has sword, princess, prophecy, dark lord, do it by the numbers. Season 2, Nicci joins the gang and it is lots of fun because Good Is Dumb

I'm not sure what sort of trope it would fall under, but did anyone else find it a tad ironic in Bound that Nikki would tell Richard that it was foolish and a waste of time to stop and help everyone they meet for the sake of stopping and helping them?

Considering the book that episode was based on? Definitely ironic. Not sure if it's a trope, though.

I consider it a Mythology Gag, since the irony came entirely from a comparison to the Nicci of the books.
