I never understand why people take simple, cool, elemental design philosophies that make for a consistent, realistic, reasonable universe then just suddenly add random **** to it.
I remember I tried watching some anime which seemed pretty cool where everyone had generic elemental type powers up until one point where they introduced a guy whose special ability was to split into a bunch of power ranger dressed pixies. Like, do people actually come up with these things and think 'yeah, that works well thematically'. It's like if LoL introduced a champion that was a stick figure with a trollface who constantly broke the forth wall.
