With Roleplay Month comes the need to make new characters or recycle old ones! While it's great to have unique characters, there can also be tropes we know and love. Vote for one of your favorites in the poll above!

While I've never created a sulking leader for an RP before, that's the one that stood out to me from this list and so that's what I voted xD A vitriolic dynamic between the sulking leader and the other chaotic cast members is always great.

I did chose "bubbly optimist" but in all actuality, I love all character tropes, for the most part, since I believe that is when characters interact so nicely with each other. All should be an option /j !

The CHaOs cReATor, my friend. That's the one. ;) Wherever it goes chaos and a dose of lighthearted conversation and argument follows. Uh huh. Yeah. Best one out of the bunch.

The cinnamon-roll is a trope that will always hold a special place in my writing <3
Howeverrrr the sarcastic warrior is a close tier, especially when female and written correctly [Ahsoka, and Toph would be the best examples].
There's one additional trope that's not listed and is among my favorites list-the chaotic goof-ball who is downright terrifying when he gets series and is secretly a genious [ig, Dazai, Gojo, and Yato].
