Couldnít agree more.

Nah. Sheís Reboot Lara. Survivor Lara only reminds me of TR2013 Lara (which also has a name).

By this logic; LAU Lara would be Archaeologist Lara and Classic Lara would be Explorer Lara... That reminded me of Dora the Explorer

Isn't it the survivor trilogy/era?

What are we gonna call Lara when there's another reboot 10 - 20 years down the line? :S

We have
Classic Lara: TR 1, TR2, TR3, TRLR, TRC, and TRAoD Lara, but i considered Aod Lara as a transition point from the old to intermediate Lara's.
LAU Lara: Sub categories Legend, Anni, and Underworld
Survivor Lara: TR2013.....so if the other two lara's don't fit

We are calling them Of the Tomb Raider ERA, or

I know! Weíll call TR2013-ROTTR-SOTTR Lara ĎDestined Laraí! Appropriate, I guess. OK, from now on Iíll start using Destined Lara to spread the trend.

Iím dead serious... No movement starts without cause.

I don't like call it in the Survivor trilogy because it feels like mis-labeling the trillogy considering how 2013/Rise, kinda werent about "survival" that much if at all, it's like the "Avatar" characters in Modern Fire emblem, where they really aren't "Avatars" for the player (Since the Avatar characters have fixed personalities so really the only control you have is how they look and who they romance so they're basically just fixed characters you can change the gender/look of.) but the game's developers insist on the wrong terminology.

I've stated before but I don't feel at all like I'm in some sort of survival situation in 2013/Rise despite what the cringy message in the ending says for anyone too stupid to realise what the "theme" of the game was.

I'd honestly feel more comfortable calling Core Lara "Survivor Lara" due to how the Core-Design games take elements from 90's FPS shooters that Survival Horror games also did, I'd still think it's a bit of a stretch but it honestly seems to me like it would actually fit Core-Lara more, if only due to how resources aren't as abundanct/the environment does a much better job at killing you compared to 2013.

i do it weird but i find it superior b/c i'm an icon

Core Lara: specifically Lara from I, II, III, The Last Revelation, Chronicles, The Angel of Darkness, Starring Lara Croft (1st GBC game), Curse of the Sword, and The Prophecy. name comes from the company Core Design which made these games

Legend Lara: specifically Lara from Legend, Anniversary, Underworld, Relic Run, GO, Guardian of Light, and Temple of Osiris. name comes from the trilogy she originates from, the Legend Trilogy

Classic Lara: Core Lara and Legend Lara (as well as Top Cow Lara)

Survivor Lara: specifically Lara from TR 2013, Rise of the TR, and Shadow of the TR. name again comes from the trilogy she belongs to, the Survivor Trilogy. "Origins Trilogy" would also work i guess but calling her Origins Lara doesn't sound right

b/c otherwise the crystal dynamics games are officially just The Tomb Raider Trilogy (both sets of them). and that conflicts with a package called The Tomb Raider Trilogy comprising of I-III from the 90's... and nobody has the time for that kinda confusion

I don't consider LAU to be classic Lara.

Maybe a neo-Classicism for sure?


Classic:
- Core Lara: TR I - III; TRLR - AoD
- Neo-classicism: LAU Lara

LAU Lara: Legend, Anni, Underworld, then the GoL and ToO

Survivor: TR2013 - Shadow Lara

Comics are their own separate entities, BUT the survivor comics would be lumped into the survivor timeline.

And if we factor the multiverse

Earth-1: Classic Lara
Earth-97: Top-Cow Comic Lara
Earth-6: LAU Lara
Earth-7: Revisioned Lara
Earth-13: Survivor Lara, includes Dark Horse Lara BUT may be set in an alternate timeline.
Earth-21: Would be the Angie movies
Earth-18: The Vikander Lara universe
