OMG I AM SO SICK OF RPG MAIN CHARACTERS THAT USE SWORDS!
Give me a protagonist who uses his/her fists, a lance, naginata (super cool), axes, hammers, or even bows and arrows. ANYTHING but another cliche sword wielding hero!
FeMC used a Naginata, Dude from Fire Emblem 8 not remembering his name used a lance, Robin Hood uses a bow and arrow, If you pick Dwarf in Baldurs gate Im sure your either gonna use a Hammer or axe, also fists are implied because when a sword is held a fist forms around the hilt. See you already had what your heart desired you where just blinded by the fog. I want an MC who uses a giant d**do and a bottle of lube on his foes.
Scythes are horrendously terrible weapons in real life--due to the blade curving inward, they tend to miss A LOT. The only real way to ensure hitting with a Scythe is to widely swing in so that it slices on the inside when you bring it back in. However, actually doing this is terrible for your balance. In addition, if the scythe gets stuck in the enemy, you basically can't get it out without applying enough force to brutally bisect the enemy.
Bottom line, Sycthes look cool but are awful weapons in reality. They were built for farming, not fighting.
