If a character qualifies for or shifts between three or more of the Blue Eyes subtropes in the same story, would it be appropiate to just give their Character Sheet profile a Blue Eyes entry whose description notes those subtropes and they apply?
No, Blue Eyes is a disambiguation now so it shouldn't be used as a trope.
This seems to be a kind of "land mine" in terms of Faux Symbolism; as in, I couldn't give this to literally any character* That is, the ones who aren't already blue-eyed in my in-the-making series without them fitting one of the subtropes.
I'm trying to figure out where one character's specific eye colour would fall.
She has very vivid blue eyes, a bit on the darker side of the scale, with a couple hints of other colours scattered throughout that seems to warp and shift. It's kind of trippy-looking. They seem to be a bit too open, like with Creepy Blue Eyes, but that seems to describe a very light eye colour.
Personality-wise, she could give Johan a run for his money.
We seem to be missing a blue eyes archtype; Storm Blue eyes. Storm Blue Eyes like Icy Blue Eyes, seem to pierce through you. However, the connotations are different.
1. Storm Blue Eyes are physically dark blue (much like how a storm is preceeded by dark skies).
2. Typically on heroes or a lighter Anti-Hero (types 2 and 3), but most likely in front lines combat style heroes.
3. Associated with danger, but not due to malice. More akin to "piss this guy off/provoke him and you'll regret it" as he'll most likely curb stomp you (see 2). Characters with this eye color tend to be pretty competent at what they do. Think wrath of the storm.
4. Most likely elements to be used by this character are ice or lightning.
5. More likely to be Good Is Not Nice or Good Is Not Soft in comparison to Innocent Blue Eyes
This.... this is a pretty cool concept actually. And fits very well with the Prince Of Persia and The Crow too.
I had added the example of Doc Hudson of cars and originally put he was type 1, innocent blue eyes, however I removed the edit because I was uncertain if he was type 1 or type 2. So I guess the question is does Doc have the innocent blue eyes or the icy blue eyes?
The following examples are X Just X. Please explain the symbolism of the blue eyes and don't just list names. This folder is not just anyone who has blue eyes. It's about the symbolism behind it.
Captain America and Jesus are two examples I think that should be allowed back.
As noted, Captain America's significance is that he is an ironic adversary against the Third Reich, who would otherwise consider him their complete ideal.
Jesus is listed as being portrayed in the style of any race which idolizes him. It's significant because Jesus was born in a region where having blue eyes would be next to impossible, if not outright so.
As for listing Jesus as an example, I'm not too sure you should add Him.
The reason is because although I have seen artwork where Jesus was given blue eyes, His ethnicity is Hebrew/Judaic, and therefore He would have inherited the genetic traits of His mother (whether you believe in the Incarnation or not, His genetic relation to Mary is still kind of undisputed. He would technically have brown eyes.
