Character Meta-Disrespect: The Douchewaffle Effect
I’m sure it’s happened to you, you play a villain, or someone otherwise really well known for a thing. Maybe they’re extremely intelligent in canon and everyone recognizes it. Maybe they’re feared by literally everyone, because of their moods and talent. Perhaps they’re known for tortures beyond belief, or maybe they are the cutest person on the planet (literally, there was an actual competition in the canon.)
But when you roleplay them, suddenly no one adheres to this. Suddenly that smart character gets talked down to and patronized. Suddenly that villain is treated like tch, so what? That torturer’s threats are completely dismissed, and that cuteness? Whatever, they’ve seen better. You’re not that cute. They’ve seen cuter lichen.
