Tropers / Tomodachi

Go To

For thousands of years I laid dormant, who has disturbed my... oh, I didnt see you there.

Greetings. I am Tomodachi. You may call me Tomo. I hope you're doing fine.

I'm a Venezuelan troper who wasn't allowed to edit in Tv Tropes for a long time! Why? My grammar sucked back then.

When I wrote this page, I was kinda out there. I mixed elements of my real self with a parody version of a super villain, and the result was... not great. I decided to change that. I also shared information about my Original characters, but decided to scrap them for personal reasons.


Still, in 1999, I was implicated in a scheme to replace the president of the USA with a squid. I failed, the president was too spicy for me. Did I mention I was like five?

Just kidding of course. Possibly.

Outside of Tv Tropes, I used to write reviews for spanish-speaking comics and webcomics, called Criticando T. I'm also the writer of the webcomic Insecto Nocturno, which is very different from how some old posts in these sites were about.

     Tropes about myself: 
  • Completely Missing the Point: I'm not the best at debates. Sometimes, I can lose myself by bringing unnecesary points. My head is not the best. This is one of the reasons I stopped reviewing works, and prefer to join a conversation.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Sometimes I just don't mean to offend people. Once, I used a nasty slur involving trans people and wasn't aware it was a slur. I quickly apologized and edited the comment.
  • Thinking Out Loud: Ocassionally, and is quite unconfortable when I'm rambling or thinking of a point to make on the internet and someone enters the room. They must think I'm a total nutjob.

     What has Tomodachi worked on: 
I worked on different projects using different names with different mentalities. I won't list them all here honestly, because I'm not proud of all of them.
  • Criticando T (2012?-2017): A series of reviews to comics published in Latin America and Spain, hosted in the now-defunct Zona Fantasma. All the reviews were lost when the site closed, and I'm not really proud of my attitude back then. I have no interest in reviving it, but I'm looking to recover some of them.
  • Insecto Nocturno: A superhero webcomic co-created with artist Jose Nieto. We first released a pilot in 2015, and then tried publishing a webcomic hosted on Webtoons, but the project was canceled. It received a more conclusive three-chapter miniseries on 2018 hosted Waoow Comics, which serves as a Soft Reboot I'm more satisfied with.
  • Hot Mess (2019). A collaborative comic hosted by the members of the The Webcomic Relief Discord server. I provided the script for the first page, incluiding the basic idea of the main character alongside The Solar Wolf.

    My rules for Tv Tropes 
  • In general, to post the source. While Bob and Margaret may have this cool quote, posting it on the quotes article without citing the chapter or episode rustles my jimmies; especially as it then becomes very hard to find said quote on Google. If you're going to cite an example, make sure to mention where the example takes place.
    • To expand on this topic: I've been a fan of Dragon Ball (for better or worse) for many years, and all these years I have been hearing the same claim: "Toriyama said this". This claim can actually anger me, due to how manipulative it is. It is either a case of dumb fans wanting their favorite character to be stronger than everyone, or the most offensive one, as many have used Toriyama's name just to fool the ignorants into a patriotic kind of thinking "oh, he gave his blessing to OUR DUB, making us better than Japan or the United States" despite the man not even saying anything of the sort. For this reason I have no good opinion on the Latin American fanbase of Dragon Ball, alongside other reasons, and would prefer for every statement to be sourced.
  • If possible, make sure to credit the artist responsible for the episode in question. Being on the Sakuga Discord made me appreciate different creators. I know we aren't a wiki, but its easier to blame a person than a whole abstract team.

    I launched 
  • Creators
    • Dross Rotzank: He already had some mentions in the site, and I believe he is relevant enough to warrant a page.
    • Sea Snail Studio: I've been a fan of him before he deleted his Spanish-speaking works, so I wanted to provide him with some support.
    • Rubén Leon: The voice actor of the The Joker. Is not fair only mexican voice actors get creator pages!
    • Esteban Garcia: My favorite voice actor on the Latin American voice acting industry. :)
    • Hiroyuki Takei: It was a short article. I enjoyed Shaman King as a kid on Fox Kids.
    • Justin Peniston: A writer from Man of Action Studios. Once he was discovered to be working on Sonic Prime, I did some research on his work. He so far is fine, I still have to read his webcomic.
    • Shinya Suzuki: I did some basic research on his work, but have never read it myself. At the time, I was working on multiple Shonen Jump authors.
    • Shiro Maekawa: Possibly the best writer of the Sonic games, but don't fool yourself, his story in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is a real stinker. A couple of good moments don't save that story from being utterly terrible.
    • Toyotarō: The author of the Dragon Ball Super manga. I don't have a good opinion on him, but I still read his work out of a desire for troping.
    • Yusuke Murata: He was relevant enough for a page. Love his artwork, but I don't personally care much about the stories he worked on. Could you believe the Tv Tropes article for his work didn't even credit him? Gosh, some tropers!
  • Works and sites
    • I helped in the creation of many subpages in the Dragon Ball pages, thanks to my growing interest on Dragon Ball Super. I'm only doing the justice of the gods, what good are tropers if they do not provide?
    • Doña Barbara: Doña Barbara was mentioned in some pages on the site, and was previously the Trope Namer for Evil Colonialist, so I decided to read the work again and provide a workpage for the book.
    • 2Masters: Needs a revamp, Mayshing deserves better.
    • Tapastic: Some webcomics needed the index.
    • My Best Friend Marneao: I've been a fan of Sea Snail Studio works for years, so, I wanted to help him a bit with his first English work.
    • Dr. Stone: I was interested in the comic once I knew Boichi was working on it. I fell in love with the comic from day one, and as such, planted the seed for the kingdom of science!
    • Ultraduck: I liked the series ever since I reviewed it, as such, wanted to help the author with some publicity, especially since Ultraduck is so low on the radar.
    • Waoow Comics: The place where my work is hosted. I wanted to help promote it.
  • Tropes
    • Memetic Loser: This trope was my idea, but others made better use of it.
    • Microbot Swarm: I used the trope in my work, and noticed how it was missing.
    • Motion Comic: In order to help promote Waoow Comics.
    • Signature Series Arc: It stuck around in Trope Launch Pad. There isn't anything to add, I wasn't really interested on this one.
    • Sumo Wrestling: I noticed it was lacking, so I planted the seed.
    • Outdated by Canon: Because Jossed doesn't work for fanfic pages.
    • Time Travel Taboo: Due to becoming a recent topic in the Dragon Ball franchise since Xenoverse and being a frequent topic in the Future Trunks saga, I decided to create the trope.
  • Other
    • Hugo Chávez: With the help of the Venezuelan Tropers, I wrote this article. Let's not talk about this man or his legacy, please.

     Tropes I enjoy and dislike 

I enjoy

I hate

  • Ad characters. Characters that only were added to sell more merchandise or toys, and are overall bad characters all around. Videogames can be an exception. Examples include Peter Parker (which doesn't even resemble the real deal), Kale and Gogeta.
  • Characters motivated purely by revenge are boring.
  • Friendship speeches. I love the power of friendship, especially for characters who seriously need it, but I hate when "I have friends and you don't" is preached. Examples: Sonic Forces, Episode 130 of Dragon Ball Super (I do like Toppo's speech to Jiren in 131, though), and Mashima Hiro works.
  • I try to avoid time travel in any story, it just makes me scratch my head.

     Some of my characters 

I'm guilty of creating characters for my own amusement, and I enjoy paying (Or not) artist to draw them. However, with some exception, most of them aren't made for a story in particular. I'm putting them so I can roleplay later on the forums.

A small hedgehog with an emotive hat, Sorio used to serve as the mascot for Criticando-T, and was best friend with the Zona Fantasma mascot, Nishiki.
  • Blatant Lies: He will claim he is not related with either Sonic or Mario, but that his name comes from a french village.
  • Composite Character: Originally of Sonic and Mario. Now he doesn't share many attributes with either.
  • Expressive Accessory: His hat can reflect his true feelings due to the face it has. As such, Sorio can be easily read if he is lying, since his hat will appear nervous.
  • Foil: To myself in the reviews, where i'm mostly being too cynical and critical for my own good, Sorio is a pleasant fellow that enjoys the good in the bad ( Even the horrible)
  • Nice Guy: Unlike yours truly, he doesn't have any sort of malice in his person. People joke he is secretly a psychopath (Like yours truly), but those are lies.
  • Nice Hat: A red hat with a face on it, reflecting his true thoughts. If he is happy, the hat is happy. If he is sad, but tries to hide it, the hat will show its sadness.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: A cute small hedgehog with a cute small hat that is mostly reflecting his positive thoughts.

Read ya later!
