Who would you be in Fictionland? Can't Post

Simple. If you lived in a fictional universe of a movie, book, tv-series etc etc, what kind of character would you be? Oh and I know these are incredibly stereotypical options, and not all in the good way, but that's the point.

Watching the Dark Knight Returns made me realize once more that in a movie, I'd totally be one of those crazy minions who worship the bad guy with passionate fever. Ouch. Sly

In reality I'd be .... [In reply to] Can't Post

the loner working alone (since that is what I do most days Wink). I'd like to think I was the smart guy doing the planning, and even more delusional, the hero Cool

If I could choose one, I'd be the trusty sidekick. Nothing ever happens to the trusty sidekick Unimpressed Sly

Though it's safer to be the sidekick than the love interest or the mentor. Those always die.

I'd make a rubbish villain, that's for sure. I wouldn't have the patience Evil. It takes baddies ages to do anything, and even then, they are quickly defeated.

Being the villain is surely very frustrating [In reply to] Can't Post

You're usually the smartes person around (but nobody appreciates it!), you work hard (but nobody appreciates it!), have to deal with idiotic subordinates screwing things up, have nobody to trust... while the hero and his merry bunch of friends and mentors come and ruin your plan just as it's about to come to its long awated fruition. Every --- single ---- time!

I'd be the wise old mentor [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know why, but that sort of character has always been my favourite in pretty much every film/book/play etc.
On the plus side, although the mentor usually dies he often gets to come back (Gandalf, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Aslan etc)

Mook = an ordinary henchman/soldier [In reply to] Can't Post

Ordinary Orcs and Gondor/Rohan soldiers are mooks. Individually they're expendable and not very threathening, but every self respecting authority figure should have at least a few thousand of them at hand to (fail to) do all the common tasks such as catching and guarding the hero, and more importantly, to march in impressive formations.

Mook's life expectancy is the shortest out of all. Even the love interest has it better, as s/he usually won't die until rather late in the story.

It's tuff [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't decide, it requires to analyze a lot of shelf-aspects... so gonna say the comic relief! Crazy

I'm very fond of Gimli's, Pippin's,Bilbo's funny moments( in terms of middle earth saga).
In difficult situations some humour ,sarcasm and cheer up words are so needed and appreciated.Smile

I had the same question [In reply to] Can't Post

But I found something else when I looked "Mook" up Shocked I still think I wouldn't have picked it, though.
I guess that in reality, the Mook would be the most populous role - so maybe that is where I would fit.
But I picked "morally ambiguous wildcard" because it seemed to best fit past history as I remember it,
in spite of efforts to be more definedly good and moral ... and pressure to fit a Mook slot Evil - I don't feel I usually
do "fit in" that well anyway, to be a Mook - so wildcard it is Crazy

Anti-hero [In reply to] Can't Post

Some tough choices but i think the anti-hero has the best of both worlds. Can be as badass as a villain but ultimately you are the hero. Or maybe be something like batman - vigilante.

Kind of character [In reply to] Can't Post

I guess to me that would be either the trusty sidekick or the loner working alone that depend for what cause and the context of the situation. Anyway I don't see myself as someone who like fame and to be directly under the sportlight so for me it would be the kind of role in the sideline or the background without drawing too much attention.

Wise mentor of indeterminant age :D / Also regarding number of sidekicks [In reply to] Can't Post

Wise mentor of indeterminant age is what I'd prefer, but, since that wasn't a choice, I went with Wise Old MentorWink. Second choice was Comic Relief; I tend to make dumb jokes whenever I'm in a stressful situation. So in my case, I'd be more like Comic? Relief.


Also, regarding all those who chose side-kick, I'm reminded of the Disney film Sky High. No, it's not a drug reference. It's about a high school for super heros and side kicks that happens to be up in the sky. On the first day of school, kids have to demonstrate their super powers and they are then placed either in the Super Hero program or the Side Kick program, depending on how inpressive their power is. It's not great, but kind of cute with a nice message about the how important everyone is. They undercut the message a bit in the end, but still cute.
