August 20th, Leave a comment Go to comments Characters in fiction and drama are characterized into different categories according to their influence on the plot and their personality. Every character in a poem is unique in their own way. In the poem Beowulf, Beowulf endures many challenges that make his character stand out from the rest.
Related to the Genius Ditz or the Crouching Moron, Hidden Badassyou have the Brilliant, But Lazy character, who is more than capable of taking care of any situation that the heroes have to deal with, but doesn't care.
They'd rather relax and do nothing to help. This character will likely Refuse The Call when it comes, feeling that, whatever's going on, it's not their problem. Expect them to be very sarcastic as well. Expect such a character to be indifferent, uncaring, and, at worst, obnoxious or self-centered.
However, when it's crunch time, and the heroes need someone to come save them, guess who decides to give them a break? Often a form of Obfuscating Stupidity. Can be associated with Book Dumb. If they're also rich, they may be an Upper-Class Twit.
|She is the crown princess of Coronaknown for her long, magical, golden hair. As a child, Rapunzel was abducted by a controlling witch and locked away in a remote tower for eighteen years—in during which, she became fascinated with a phenomenon involving " floating lights " that only appear on her birthday.|
|Supernatural and the occult horor titles for young adults||Maybe, she thinks, the familiar routines of school will relieve her obsessive thoughts about what happened to Tiffany Quinn.|
When they try to be The Slackerthey usually turn into a Professional Slacker. See also Unskilled, but Strongwhich a Brilliant But Lazy character can be if they have great power but don't bother working to improve on it.
An obvious subversion here is the notable difference between someone who actually is Brilliant But Lazy and someone who thinks they're Brilliant But Lazy but is actually just Lazy. This also applies to those who are secretly afraid they're not brilliant and hence refuse to exert themselves for fear they'll be exposed.
They should also beware of falling into the trap of Laborious Laziness if they find that their smarts and their desire to avoid doing work is in fact making them work harder at being lazy than they would be working if they just did what they were supposed to.
May overlap with the Erudite Stonerwhose laziness comes from being under the influence, the Absent-Minded Professorwho may seem lazy because his intellect distracts him from everyday tasks and Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
See also, Hidden Depths. Director Ton is usually seeing practicing his golf swing and bossing around his underlings especially Retsukobut during the end-of-quarter crunch in episode 10 he's shown to be a whiz at making calculations with an abacus.
Yurine from Ano Kiss is the best at everything without even trying and spends most of her time sleeping in class including cooking class!
You could say she isn't so much lazy as completely lacking motivation, both because she never has to work hard and because she considers herself a nuisance for other people.
She can get serious when she has an actual reason to—said reason is most often her competition with the girl she loves, Ayaka.
Karma Akabane from Assassination Classroom is solidly in this trope, getting 4th place in the school on midterms when the odds were stacked against his class due to additional last minute questions they hadn't been told to study for out of sheer smarts He's in class 3-E for his bully hunting and delinquent ways, not his grades.
However, the trope is deconstructed with the term finals, where Karma doesn't study at all and drops to 13th place. True, 13th in the entire school without studying when the exams are designed to be insanely difficult is no mean feat, but the pain comes from Karma knowing and knowing everyone else also knows that he can do better.
In the final test of the series, he gets a perfect score, having studied in order to beat his rival who is both brilliant and a hard worker. Tomo from Azumanga Daioh shows signs of intelligence, but clearly doesn't put it to any use, academic or mundane.
The only sign of her intelligence is the high marks she gets when she actually does study. However, he decided to make manga because he thought that's an easy job and once he finds out it's not a cakewalk, he does everything he can to avoid working.
Roger Smith of The Big O is 'bout half an example. When he has a jobhe'll go at it with the tenacity of a badger, and won't rest till it's done. Dorothy Waynewright 's nerve-wracking piano-playing. In an early episode, he goes through a major mission including obligatory Humongous Mecha battle just to get her some piano-lessons so she'll at least wake him up gently.
It works, but even afterwards she still resorts to her old rapid-fire "Alarm Clock" playing whenever Roger stays in bed 'till late afternoon.
Raia in Black Clover is characterized largely by his lack of desire to do anything until coerced to do so. However, he is also a master of Copy Magic, a set of spells that allow him access to every spell of any spellbook he has come into physical contact withand is not only able to gain instant proficiency with them allhe was born with enormous mana reserves allowing him to use those spells with equal or greater power and potency than their original users.
He can even create a duplicate of Asta's Anti-Magic swords, though he could not copy their Anti-Magic traits. It is only logical that his total lack of initiative is paired up with an innate skill in magic that allows him to use spells without having to learn or practice them. Kyouraku prefers to get drunk and veg out under the sun to fighting, despite being one of the strongest captains in the Soul Society.
When ordered to stop the intruders, he tries to avoid fighting by asking Chad to drink with him instead. When he fights the most powerful Espada, Starrk realizes they share this personality, and, believing Kyouraku hates fighting as much as him, suggests they engage in a pretend fight until the war is over.Personality Edit.
A master of martial arts who fundamentally keeps the morality of the innate goodness of man, but at same time also accepts evil.
As a Servant, Shuwen's morality had deviated from the general common sense, but his humanity itself is that of a "sensible person" that esteems rationality. His purpose and use are to be the evil that would get beaten by the main character, in this case, Beowulf.
Explanation: Flat and static characters square measure somewhat necessary in texts. whereas their /5(5). Beowulf is a good example of a round character because he is a complex character who changes and develops throughout the epic poem.
This is the opposite of a flat character whose personality is set or static and does not change from beginning to end. what kind of character is Beowulf round or flat. round.
