Is it possible to have a character who simply wants to be a god instead of believing they actually are one?
Like, someone who wants to Take Over the World, but wishing to be a god while doing it without being all that delusional...
I don't know. :( Is there a trope for that?
I mean, something like a Galactic Conqueror would probably represent an actual god, supervillain, alien or whatever so that wouldn't demonstrate my point either...
Seems like it still would fit into A God Am I, which is really about self-proclaiming as one.
Batman Forever is the only place I recall seeing this exact wording. I don't know which translation the Page Quote is using here, the KJV just says "I am a God"
This is not an example:
...Because "Sacrilege" is sometimes used to say infringement or desecration of non-holy objects that are simply very important. Whether or not it should mean this is irrelevant.
This isn't in the work, so probably not an example worth citing. It's also possible to declare yourself a god while kicking down a sandcastle.
Given the usual moral disposition of these characters, should this go on the Villains index?
The caption is hilarious but also, a bit unsettling. I can imagine Light as some Galacticus looking guy devouring planets. Anyways it's funny, i like it.
Would it be fitting to add Roger Zelazny's "Lord of Light" to the Literature Section? He impersonates Buddah, sides with Yama and proceds to wage war with Brahma, Vishnu and a hundred more deities - All of them Impersonated..
Hm.. A bunch of unfitting redirects were added to this by masterchief, a troper who seems to be adding them to lots of other tropes as well, and who has a history of edit wars and minor vandalism. I cutlisted them, but the cut was rejected without a reason given. Any opinions on these redirects to see if I should try cutlisting them again?
Some things I'd have mentioned-
...With that many complaints, you could probably at least get an explanation why your Cuts were rejected. Don't go the Ad Hominem route on the Cut List- focus on what's technically incorrect on the pages. Don't attack the credibility of whoever created them, regardless of their dubious reputation.
Whoever put back the picture of Light, thank you. That caption never fails to make me giggle like a little girl.
I don't know... I'm getting kind of fed up with almost every trope having a page picture taken from Anime, wheather or not the picture actually fits the trope.
I agree with upupandaway42. I dont think the image is fitting enough. Of course, if you watched Death Note, you understand the picture. But if you didn't, it's just some handsome boy standing there with a black orb that vaguely resembles earth in his hand. I mean, seriously, he seems to offer me a magic Brownie or something rather than actually looking like a megalomanical lunatic.
TL;DR: Even if the trope fits Light perfectly, the picture doesn't fit the Trope.
Just A Face And A Caption.
Also agreed. This shows me nothing that says that he's a god or not. He's just a kid with glowing eyes.
The page pic for Death Note's main page would seem to fit more for the page image here. You know, that particular cover art of him standing with arms outstretched, being especially subtle.

How well does it match the trope?
