What badass boast/creed does your character have?
« on: February 06, 2018, 09:43:05 AM »
When times come for the heroic second wind, the last stand for a village about to be overrun by Grimm, or just having something they live by as their guidance, your character will deliver lines so awesome that can only be followed by their massive amounts of asskicking or rivaled by one of your opponents'.

What is it for your characters? Is it from a work they(you) have read or created? Something they thought of themselves? Or skip straight for the combat(or mix and match for the confusion fu)?
Doubles as a source of generic ones for all to pilgariselearn and draw ideas from.

I'll go first:

Catalina:
People are born equal. Egalitarians keep it so.
Other's semblance is an extension of their personalities. Mine is a part of my body.
I am the carrier of my soul. Semblance is my body and aura is my blood. (Obviously ripped off from his consumed media)

Infrared:
She ends up trying to deconstruct a bunch of related tropes.: ShowHide
Oh, this is the part where I give a badass boast? You see, people love these. It's cool as all hell, it's moralizing to you and demoralizing to your enemy. Probably because they're so awe-inspiring and believing in them drives you to make it happen, or makes it happen by itself, throwing away other precious consideration in the process, sometimes even logic.
You can also call that fanaticism. It does grant you bigger bonus for a reason, but it could also make you self-righteous and zealous. If they have a different idea than you and they think they're right, they're going to resist your attempts to convince them otherwise and you're both gonna get frustrated. What do you do now, tell them over and over again until they believe? It’s the least forceful way, but they could realize you’re repeating your argument ad nauseam and reject it. What now, beat some sense into them? They'll just call you a devil and reaffirm your 'evil' intentions. Now it’s even harder to get them to listen, especially after all the ‘wrongs’ you’ve done to them.
And no, get off my speech with your notion that moral correctness and power are correlated. They're simply not; ask your local moral philosophers at your own peril. If I beat you handily, that's because I'm better at fighting you than you do me and nothing else. Please do not think otherwise even if I disapprove of your actions. Ideas transcend mortality. We don't need another bland, unilateral society.
I remember one cool women said "if you life it, I can kill it, even if god it is", murmurs deliberately paraphrased to rhyme, and she can back that up quite well. But why god? It's not like there's anything notable for them to favorably compare to. They rarely have feats and the ones they do are really vague, and everything else are character statements. Who would deploy troops with like, 1 atk because the flavor text said that they can incinerate enemies into nothingness and consign a billion souls to oblivion?
Moreover they're either petty enough to interfere with human affairs or ignorant enough not to... wait that was a terrible double stan... no, goalpost moving. I retract that statement. But the point still stands, just not on the same god. But it gets worse: most of them are vengeful or jealous enough to to not stand for the take that and try to get you back for it. You might even get IRL people hot on your trails for it! So blasphemous boasts are bottom line not worth it even if you can back it up.
You also will inevitably have to choose between your creed and doing what’s right. And if you choose the creed, you will have to deal with preventing yourself from becoming a knight templar. Choose wisely. I’d rather not screw my mind with all this.


Sheer:
It's party time! And the grand event is a great plan setting into motion and us looking all awesome!
When other’s inspirational teammate gives them strength figuratively, I give it literally along with aura and speed!
Revised: The power of love, the power of friendship, these are ideal people draw strength from. I think that makes me the patron saint of it then!


Bring it everyone!

Edit: Damn the overshadowing… Time to up hopefully a bit.
People like you are common. They think people who think differently than themselves are stupid. Well some of them are literally about being smart so they kinda get a pass. Some of you think the others are the unenlightened, others think they deserve hell for what they believe or don’t. But asserting your view ad nauseam is not really a valid argument, and if you do ask me I would think I’ve seen hell.
… Acutally let’s not drag this any longer. It comes down to this: I’m not going to beat senses into you, I’m going to change your view. After making sure you’re not harming anyone anymore.

DID SOMEONE SAY TROPES?!  ;D


Rory:
"Ever fought someone with nothing left to lose? You're about to."

"They say the best offense is a strong defense -- if that's true, you're in for a world of hurt."


Cordell:
"Everybody thinks pirates are all thunder, no lightnin', just scurvy opportunists who can't stand a fair fight. Mate, lemme tell ye somethin': ain't never been a fair fight -- not a one, ever -- on this whole besotted world. There ain't no 'fair' or 'unfair', just 'fight' or 'die'. Thing about pirates is, we learn how t' survive in a world where bloody near everyone an' everything wants t' kill us, an' in case ye ain't noticed, I ain't dead yet. Think ye've got a shot where so many have failed? Well... come test yer luck, then."

Sean:
"Y'know... I don't usually get serious. Not my style. I prefer to live life loose, flow like the wind and make up the rules as I go. But you? Oh, man... you just had to cross the line. You just had to keep pushing. Pushing me down. Pushing me around. Pushing your damn LUCK. But, hey, even if I go all-out on your ass you might have a chance. I'll admit it -- given what you've showed me so far, you could almost beat me. Almost. It's a dangerous word, don'tcha think? And you know what they say about 'almost'... it only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. Bitch, time to guess which one I am!!"

Budonoki:
"There are those who call me a 'man of peace' in a world of bloodshed. A healer. A sage. Hmph... the pleasant lies we tell ourselves, are they not truly something? Yes, I heal. I teach. But I have fought monsters from within and without for my entire life, and once you embark down that path you can never entirely leave it. You see an old man content to sit under the branches and listen to the wind, but somewhere deep inside still resides the spirit of a much younger man determined to change the world by will and by force. You think me a weak and broken old tree... but I will show you just how deep my roots run."

Micah:
"Even if you see me, you'll never know me. Even if you know it's me you'll never see me coming. All you'll hear is the quiet laughter of the void as it takes you -- just one more tossed into an endless grave."

   "Eliminating the target!"

Lunae:
   "There's that something about infinite ammo. It means I can blow you up, over and over again. And again."
   "You can run, and you can hide. While there is terrain to hide behind, that is!"

Graham:
   "Come, sheathe your blade. Let's see who's the quickest draw in the west."
   "Cower behind your petty shields. Duck under your meager aura. With this blade, I will CUT you down!"

Jocelyn:
   "Beat me down. Hurt me. But harm my brother and you will die."
   "I am a medic. My main role is healing. Try pushing me too far, and see how much you hurt!"
