Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • The entire series isn't exactly for kids or the easily spooked, but Soul Reaver in particular was made from stuffed with and basted in this, then cooked to crunchy brown perfection. For a start, there is Melchiah - a massive monstrosity, immortal but constantly rotting, made from sewn-together corpses, lumbering its way across the room, dragging itself toward you by its fingers, which just happen to be severed arms.
    • Up to the fight with him, you could always escape material enemies by shifting into spirit realm, where they didn't exist, if you lost all your health. This guy? He's there as well, and keeps lumbering towards you...
  • The Zephonim are spider-like vampires who easily scale walls (for sneaking up on humans) and wrap their victims in spider webbing for later on, to the point where the Silenced Cathedral is full of cocooned corpses...some of which still move.
    • Zephon himself is even worse. Over the centuries, he devolved into a humongous spider-like creature roughly 30 feet tall, where his entire body has consumed a large room of the cathedral. The first thing he does when he sees you? His face splits apart and he shrieks at you, then later threatens to eat you alive.
  • In Soul Reaver and Soul Reaver 2, distorted background music plays when in the spectral realm. Though this music isn't necessarily scary, instead of having the usual spectral realm music in Defiance, we're treated to spectral realm ambiance. White noise just above a murmur, peppered with the sobbing, screams, and pleas of lost souls. Choice phrases include: "Somebody help...", "...There is no hope...", "Help me... please... don't do it...", "I don't care anymore, but I'm still so hungry... I died waiting...", a distant horrifying shriek, and of course a mournful chorus that moans Raziel's name.
  • Blood Omen 2 gives us a call back to the Zephonim in the form of the demons in the canyons; massive green, glowing, pulsing nests of coccooned victims still writhing and moaning as they vainly try to escape. Dialogue that didn't make it into the game suggests that they are being transformed into horrible demonic abominations void of free will...
  • The Eternal Prison. A place where inmates were being brutally tortured for eternity (which the guards referred to as "peaceful meditation"). You could meet some of those prisoners roaming the corridors aimlessly in bloodied gowns with their eyes sewn shut. The whole place generally consists of dimly lit halls of stone and metal and is chock full of Bizarrchitecture and occasional Alien Geometries.
