Follow TV Tropes
Knowing my luck, something I have no experience in, like a Grand Theft Auto knockoff or something like that.
Do you sing well?
Eh nope, not at all, although I do sing ironically whenever I'm alone or in Humor Mode.
My guess is that villians are almost never expected to act within conventional social norms. Because we good and often lawful people have to live within those same norms, we can have a tendency to fantacize about breaking from them. This leads into a lot of subjectivity and ambiguity within any given villain's various attributes — thus the greater number of YMMV tropes.
It's the same reason why Villain Has a Point is a trope and Hero Has a Point is not. Heroes are expected to be correct above a villain. In contrast, we don't expect villains to be...
TLDR: Villains break the rules and wisdom that heroes are bound by. This, in turn, is what allows them to be interesting yet subjective characters.
What's your favorite work from a genre you normally are not interested in?
Team Fortress 2 is my favorite shooter game. I don't actually play it, but I love the characters and the art style.
Yes I have.
I rarely get crushes on fictional characters at all, but lemme tell you, my love for Cassidy knows no bounds (at least in the show, cause he's sort of a cunt in the comics).
Should you be on TV Tropes right now or are you procrastinating on something?
Where would be the worst place to put the car's ignition keyhole?
In the car next to it. If that car goes on a road trip, you ain't going nowhere.
WHAT is your favorite color?
Is there any work of fiction that you find unsettling? Not outright scary or disturbing, but just unsettling in a way, perhaps unintentionally

Uh Nightmare, you forgot to ask a question. Anyways, while I don't get scared as often today, I do remember getting an uneasy feeling when I first fight the alien turtle boss from Contra 3: The Alien Wars. Something about it feels off, especially with the boss theme, animations, and noises it makes.

It depends on why "evil" is percieved as cool. If it's about aesthetic sensibilities or being powerful, probably not; red and black color schemes, being powerful, and being hammy are all things that can be thought of as cool in their own right and just happen to be associated with villains. If it's the end result of other tropes, like Good Is Boring...then it definitely leans toward the cynical side, as it's born clearly of bitterness or frustration.
On a barely related note: favorite female superhero?

Probably, as the page notes that Tropes Are Flexible when it comes to meaning so I say it's all on how it's written. For example, the cynical person could see Evil Is Cool due to a combination of a few of tropes listed on that page, such as Being Good Sucks and Evil Is Easy.
Bit of a tough one as I don't have a particular favorite. I mean I like them, just can't pick one over the others. Heck, I don't really know which ones I like the most as I did't read much of their comics and thus get to know them. eh, I'll just pick one at random and say Spider-Gwen.
Assuming TNP is someone who likes the outdoors and has hiked or gone camping before, would you listen to music while out on the trails or listen to the natural sounds? If you're not an outdoors person, would you listen to music while you walk in the city or listen to the city life sounds?

I like listening to music, but mostly when I'm home. If I'm out hiking, I'd rather listen to natural sounds. They're very peaceful and relaxing.
Do you play any sports?
Not really... but I try to go to the gym sometimes. Does that count?
What do you think of video games as an art form? Do you think they're underappreciated as one, or do you think most people understand that they are one now?
Depends on the game series. If it's something like Okami, Sekiro, something like that, video games could be considered an art. But it's kinda turned into a mainstream form of entertainment at this point.
... doesn't mean I don't love them though, because I do.
Favorite You Tuber and why?
I don't really follow a lot of youtubers, but for "original content" youtubers I guess SiIvaGunner (for fun and good rips) and Jim Sterling for Jimquisition - I've liked those videos for years.
(because I wanna answer this) I've always seen video games as art, and this applies to all games, not just "art games" - it's an art form the same way movies, music, books ect. are. (Then again I have a very broad definition of "art") There's a lot of creativity and different types of art going into making them
Is there a soundtrack you like from a game you haven't played?
Lots of them. An example are the ones from many Kirby games, and many tracks from all Donkey Kong Country Games...
What's your favorite example of a work that shook/changed an entire genre?
Edited by Oggy123 on Feb 4th 2020 at 6:10:05 PM
Jaws, the very first Summer Blockbuster.
Can you name a female character who's both an Alpha Bitch and Idol Singer?
Oh, um...? Eli Ayase? Although not really an alpha *****, she is blode though and is the Student Council President
What do you think of the One Piece live-action show coming to Netflix?
Edited by AutisticAlivia on Feb 8th 2020 at 3:52:37 AM
I... don't watch those.
What's your favorite example of a work that broke the mold?
Edited by Oggy123 on Feb 7th 2020 at 8:22:28 PM
Probably Puella Magi Madoka Magica of Magical Girl Genre since it was unique for its time until many Magical Girl Anime after that started jumping on the Bandwagon. Myself is guilty of this of a Magical Girl Webcomic I want to make in the future.
The healers. Mainly because when I have them in a party, enemies will go for them, and it usually results in them having to heal themselves more than the rest of the party members.
What's your favorite video game and why?
Not much, really. Maybe Kirby Star Allies?
Your least favorite portrayal of gay people in media?
Edited by Oggy123 on Feb 10th 2020 at 7:49:03 PM
I have a few, but given that it's highly controversial, I'd rather not say it here
Favorite LGBT couple?
Canon ones are Rose + Kanaya and Holt + Kevin.
Also Cassidy + Eccarius but less because I find them cute, given Eccarius turned out evil, and more that the romantic plotline was a really, really good way to explore Cassidy's sexuality while making it relevant to his wider character development.
