Something a little lighter this time: How do you think Fantomega Zell and Kartéon sound as PortmanteauCoupleNames ? Have you seen those or other ones elsewere ?

Five-man band configuration for the Noob guild : Former entry :

Current entry :

I have that interpretation because the Five Man band members are personnality (and way of fighting) types. All members can be sex-inverted compared to the trope name, so being the only girl doesn't make someone the Chick, especially if one of the male characters is more helpless and emotional than her.

Tell me what you think about it, because my interpretation may not be completely correct either.

I'm not sure, I've only seen the first season. But your version seems better indeed.

Interesting interpretation. The thing is that Arthéon and Omega Zell seem to be ones with a hero-lancer dynamic to me. Actually, according to An Adventurer Is You (one of the few tropes present before my takeover of the page), the standard fantasy MMORPG group of four has everyone be The Hero, so all four core members of the guild can possibly be argued to be it.

Edit : Trope pages confirm that The Smart Guy is the Nuker and The Big Guy the Tank. That makes these two positions secure in second configuration. Sparadrap may work as Hero, but who would be The Lancer (even though having the role filled by sevral people at once seems to not be unheard of)? Rereading the tropes also made me realise that Sparadrap could be a deconstruction of having The Chick, who sometimes isn't the most brillant member of the band, be The Medic. PS: I know it may look like I'm taking advantage of my many visits, but I really am open to alternate intepretations if they are justified.
