Page Action: Above The Ruins

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Above The Ruins is currently about someone destroying a location, escaping from it, and finding a high-up place to get a good view of the ongoing destruction. It's commonly seen after a Load Bearing Boss is defeated.

Some people are using the trope to refer to any character looking at destruction or a ruined location from above.

Two possible fixes are to redefine it to fit the misuse, or a rename to make it sound less broad.

Note that Watching Troy Burn already covers heart-wrenching scenes of a hero looking over a location that's been destroyed by a villain, and states that this is often done from a high vantage point.

Rename Above The Ruins and keep its current definition ("a character looks at the ruins they caused")


Expand Above The Ruins's definition and make it a subtrope of Scenery Gorn with the specification that it is about looking down from a height at ruins that have personal meaning to the character.
