YMMV / Reaching Salvation

Go To

  • Arc Fatigue: We experience this over the Weekend Arc that took place between Week One and Week two, thankfully, a Time Skip fixed that one nicely.
  • Ass Pull: Considering we're well into Part III, we've not had as much as one might think, though there are a few decent examples of this:
    • One character has Flow which allows him to manipulate solids by injecting said Flow into them. Fair enough. The weakness? Well, instead of being something you might think like the larger the solid the hard it is to manipulate it or something like that it's not - every solid seems to be affect in the same way. The true drawback is that he can control all solids bar plastic and rubber...

    • Said character is now also subject to a stolen subplot that someone else came up with.
    • Another good example of some of the ass pulls we've experience would be Nathan's use of Psychic Powers when he had them. He had become unbeatable because he could pull them outta nowhere whenever he pleased.
      • He's now lost his ability to use his Psychic Powers though, so things have once again balanced out.
    • Some might class Shima's arrival as this.
  • Base-Breaking Character:
    • The most prominent example is probably Nathan, however. Some just seem him as the arrogant Smug Snake that is in desperate need of having some sense beaten into him whilst see him as an interesting character who brings something fresh to the the RP as a whole.
    • Sabina is this really. She's either a character you'll love or you'll despise.
  • Crossing the Line Twice: Nathan does this once or twice. Especially in his training fight with Luke. Poor bastard...

  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Whilst we care about the contestants to a certain extent, some of their actions make it rather hard not to dislike something about everyone.
  • Designated Evil: Depending on your point of view, the Big Five might be this, but with their current motives and End Game plan unknown, it's still up for debate.
  • Designated Villain: Shima.
    • The Big Five may also be classed as this, depending on how you stand on the above point.
  • Die for Our Ship: Seems to be some of this going on in the Reaching Salvation Discussion Threads.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Played with, I think.
  • Face of the Band: Nathan seems to have become this for his group - seeing as they are referred to Nathan's Band, after all.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Luka/Kira is arguablly this depending on who you talk to. It seems to have more people backing it that it's rival ship - so to speak - in Nathan/Kira.
  • Game-Breaker: Nathan and Joey are probably among the better examples but there are others.
    • Nathan's actually getting a lot better seeing how he's lost pretty all the abilities he had any measure of true skill with and is back to square one in terms of his learning curve.
      • Justified with the Big Five in that they're adults and are suppose to be a great deal more powerful than the contestants by default because of this. Joey, who has now also become an adult, would also get away with this justification, however, his ability seems to have little to know visible drawbacks that are of any real use that have been used on a regular biases whilst all his other known weaknesses, for lack of a better way to put it, are rather retarded.
  • Hypocritical Fandom: In a manner of speaking. Let me put it this way, people kept complaining about how strong someone was/was getting, fair enough when they have a Game-Breaker ability, yet how do people follow up their outraged cries of "OVERPOWERED!", you might ask? Quite simple really, they give their own characters a power boost and thus we begin the circle anew with a different character.
  • Level Breaker: Certain powers make certain challenges ridiculously easy.
  • Moe: Elena and Simon most defaintlly qualify as this.
    • Mitsu may also count, depending on your point of view.
  • Nightmare Fuel: We've got some examples scattered throughout the RP thus far, though you might have to look for some of the examples.
