Rise of the Guardians & Tropes [10/?]
Weapon Of Choice
"This is similar to Personality Powers, but with weapons. Basically, in various works of fiction, characters tend to possess weapons that are either a direct reflection of their personality or the traits commonly deemed to their character type.
Staves are a less lethal but still effective weapon often used by the Technical Pacifist, who needs to fight but doesn’t want to use deadly force.
The heroic lead usually winds up wielding the iconic broadsword in the west.
Whips, boomerangs and other Strange Weapons are normally wielded by someone who might not be totally connected to reality or they’re so Badass they can kill people without needing “regular” weapons.
Scythes are used especially by villains despite being very impractical to actually fight with. Associated with death, or those who command it. It should be noted that a scythes can be made into an effective weapon by reattaching the blade so it extends upright from the pole.”
