    Bottom line being: hey no one is putting a gun to your head or anything, you can still go with a Lovecratian Beast idea if you want... Just don't expect compliments.

    It doesn't work because Lovecraft doesn't craft love.

    humanity stole the precious thing

    I will take the opportunity to opine, in my usual way that legally establishes everything I say as fact, that Beasts are overrepresented as bosses. We've basically overcome them in FGO so far by a series of Counter Force-mandated flukes. Without a metaphysical power bending the odds in our favour all the time, staring down a Beast is like a sentence staring down a period. They aren't stepping stones, they're the means by which mankind cuts its own knot. You can write a boss as something besides a Beast, and there'd be plenty of meaning in that just because it isn't one.

    I even wrote a Great Beast specifically to be an unwinnable fight for the post-game for when we inevitably do squeeze our way through VII with tremendous effort and massive casualties. "Then why are you saying they're overrepresented if you go out of your way to make even more" because im a hypocrite shut up

    tl;dr - "Beast" means something specific thematically. You might get more milage by selecting a different classification for the guy with the big HP bar.
    I may make mistakes, but at least I don't learn from them.

    the higher the conceptual power-level, the harder it is to sell a sheet.
    And if you wanna sell a sheet just by the merit of the power-level, you better beware why and what you are doing.
    There are other ways to hype up someone as tremendous and larger than life than to slap a Grand or Beast in their title.
    See Kamera and Hux sheets.

    Great Grand Beast Super Omega God² (Servantverse) (Anti-Universe NP) (EX++ stats) (10 layers of collapse) (one-shots Azathoth) (can beat Goku) (not clickbait)

    God no, don’t bring Goku into this. We don’t need the power scalers invading, and he’s basically their calling card.

    And honestly, the idea is… tenuous but I’d never say don’t. After all, the result may still be great. We had Kilroy in the competition thread as a watcher after all, and that’s not even in the top 10 weirdest ideas I’ve seen on this site.

    I shudder to imagine how many anitwitter “can goku beat X” threads that you had to go through to understand this.

    On the topic of goku. just realized that the best character to make a goku type figure would be sun wukong due to him being the literal inspiration for goku and pretty much creating the archetype of the shonen protagonist. I’m actually pretty sure that sun wukong could be considered the primordial shonen protagonist who inspired all other shonen protagonists.

    Gigabrain idea: Wu cheng’en (the author of journey to the west) summoned and modernized as a shonen mangaka who publishes more adventures of sun wukong as a best selling manga

    Didn't Gilgamesh in Babylonia outright say that the Beasts aren't threats to destroy humanity, but obstacles for humanity to overcome or something along those lines?

    ...well, didn't realise I'd need to prep a nuke today. Wish me luck, because the tide or Power Scalers is coming.

    A spiritual evocation mage who uses magecraft based on the western epics of homer, Virgil and Dante or the Eastern epics of wu cheng’en, viyasa and valmiki and moonlights as a comic book artist/mangaka would unironically be great.

    He did, but that's because transhumanism rather than because they're doomed to fail. Otherwise there'd be a lot of contradictions in their nature as personifications of the self-destruct switches burned into the human condition.
    I may make mistakes, but at least I don't learn from them.

    You've all seen what I manage to achieve without hitting the big B G buttons
    Imagine if I did press them
    This is a written warning (multi-scenario planning has reached over 50% completion).

    I just hit the G button so I could have extra backing for Armstrong suplexing the moon. Never doing it again, that’s my 1 time.
