Even More TV Tropes

 

Hello fellow media lovers! It’s time for another TV Tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some awesome references. Now, let’s begin!

  • Poisonous Person: This is a pretty self-explanatory, but I will describe it anyway. This trope depicts a person who, through some kind of freak accident, has turned into a walking biohazard. Many villainous characters have this certain ability, and it makes them extremely difficult to deal with. Some examples include; Blight from Batman Beyond has dangerously radioactive skin, and it intensifies when he loses his temper. Magellan from One Piece is the dangerous warden of Impel-Down. He consumed the Doku Doku no Ni (Venom-Venom Fruit) at a young age, which literally transformed him into walking poison. He can meld poison like silly putty, and has made some truly terrifying creations. Unfortunately, he can only eat poison foods, which gives him horrible diarrhea for 10 hours each day. Lastly, there’s F.A.N.G. from Street Fighter V. He’s a bizarre villain that can hurl poisonous projectiles and deal chip damage.

  • Angrish: This is a very funny trope that’s used numerous times in media. It occurs when a character is so infuriated, that they can’t speak in normal sentences anymore. This usually comes out as garbled nonsense or occasionally, a large stream of curses. Examples include; One of my favorite Calvin & Hobbes comic strips. Calvin’s dad drops a present on his foot and yells; “Slippin rippin dang fang rotten zarg barg a ding dong”! Another example is Johnny’s tantrum from The Room. He says; “You bitch, YOO BEEEECH! GROODAHOLEWURLATTABETCHIA”!  The last example is from a Mythbusters episode involving a failed bow and arrow machine gun. Adam ends up yelling; “Aaagh! Fraghm fraghm wackum boogin farshur beck! Fudge! Babies! Baby hippos.”

My Favorite Spells In Hearthstone Part 2

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post! I started listing some of my favorite spells in the game last Wednesday. This is part 2 of the topic, and I hope you enjoy it. Now, let’s have ourselves a friendly brawl!

  • Deck of Wonders Type: Epic Mage Spell Mana Cost: 5 Appearance: A deck of cards with a shiny yellow aura. Effect: Shuffle 5 scrolls into your deck. When drawn, cast a random spell.

Random card effects, my absolute favorite thing in Hearthstone! This crazy card had ridiculous synergy with Yogg-Saron, and is just a grab bag of awesomeness.  If you can manage to recycle this card again and again, it’s non stop spell randomness that can make or break the game. Keep in mind though, that the scrolls aren’t actually cards, so you can get fatigued by it if you use it too much.

  • Brawl Type: Warrior Epic Spell Mana Cost: 5 Appearance: A literal brawl between a large amount of characters. Effect: Destroy all minions except one. (chosen randomly

Are you ready to rumble?!!!! This Classic Warrior card is one of the first instances of board clear in the game. It even shows an awesome animation of all the minions getting into a cartoony big ball of punishment. People play this card to piss off their opponent, and to possible get an upper hand in the match. This can backfire, however, so be careful when deciding to throw down.

More Crazy TV Tropes

Hello fellow Media Enthusiasts! It’s time for another TV Tropes post. Get ready to be amazing and surprised. Now, let’s begin!

  • Cerebus Rollercoaster: This is one of the most popular tropes used in TV and Films today. Say you’re watching your favorite show, and it suddenly takes a incredibly dark turn. This can also occur when a character does something completely out of the ordinary.  Some examples include; Puella Magi Madoka Magica (The series starts out as a normal Magical Girl Anime, but then you get to episode 4 and *spoilers* occur which drastically transforms the show’s mood and atmosphere). The “Rick Potion #9” episode of Rick and Morty (Rick creates a special potion that makes Morty more attractive to his crush. This unfortunately escalates into a world-wide epidemic, and needless to say, it results in some truly disturbing scenes). Lastly, there’s “The Return of Chef” episode of South Park (This is the last time that we see Chef in South Park. Unlike the usual comical nature of the show, this episode is much darker in tone. There’re references to pedophilia, and Chef meets his end in one of the most gruesome scenes in the entire show).

  • Serrated Blade of Pain: How do you make a weapon more dangerous? By adding additional blades to it of course! Nothing says excruciating pain quite like extra cutting power. These weapons are extremely popular in Anime and Manga, with characters dishing out bloody carnage on a normal basis. Some examples of these blades include; Saw-Toothed Arlong’s “Kiribachi”, a gruesome, multi-pointed sword that resembles the teeth of a saw blade. Hoshigaki Kisame’s “Samehada” aka Shark-Skin Sword, is a massive weapon that’s made out of extremely sharp scales and hooks. It not only ruthlessly cuts down foes, but can also destroy their chakra. Finally, we have Demise’s Serrated Blade from Skyward Sword.

My Favorite Spells In Hearthstone Part 1

Note: These are spells I haven’t gone over yet, so no copies will appear on this post.

Hello fellow Tavern Dwellers! It’s time for another Hearthstone post. This specific post will go over my favorite spells. Spells are the “Bread and Butter” of a deck, and can make or break a game. Many spells have various synergies, and some decks even completely are comprised of them. Now, let’s begin!

  • Polymorph Type: Mage Neutral Spell  Mana Cost: 4 Appearance: A mage turning someone into a sheep. Effect: Transform a minion into a 1/1 sheep.

Good old Polymorph! This card is pure rage incarnate, and is still used today. The ability to transform an incredibly beefy minion into a weak pathetic one is very useful. It also silences the minion, so you don’t have to worry about any lingering effects. Overall, an absolutely fantastic card.

  • Defile Type: Rare Warlock Spell Mana Cost: 2 Appearance: A chaotic portal with dark tendrils. Effect: Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, cast this again.

When this card came out in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, I didn’t think much of it. But now, I use it in every Warlock deck that I make. This card is one of the best board clearing tools in the game. It’s quite fun to throw this spell out on a full board with spell damage, and watch the chaos ensue.

  • Ultimate Infestation Type: Druid Epic Spell Mana Cost: 10 Appearance: An army of blue ghouls with yellow teeth. Effect: Deal 5 damage. Draw 5 cards. Gain 5 armor. Summon a 5/5 ghoul.

It’s time for the Swiss-Army Druid! This card has so many good things going for it, that many people use it to end the game. It deals damage, has draw power, gives you armor, and allows you to summon a powerful minion. It’s a very unique effect, and no other card in the game can do what this can.
