Re: Is the "Child of the Prophecy" too much?
Yeah; he had some efforts; but that does not change the fact that he was someone destined, choosen whatever you call to become the savior of the world.
Of course the actions he took effected him; everybody effects their future with their own acts.
But here is the main problem: Even before the birth; he was destined to be someone who will be important no matter what; he was the choosen one, out of thousands of people who born; he was the one and only, special "child of prophecy" something another individual can never achive or could never be with effort. He was considered as a "loser"; but he was in fact something very special; he did nothing to be child of prophecy(not that anyone can do something about it), he did not worked for the importance or speciality the child of prophecy would bring to him.
His overall characteristics is not effecting by it(though he had/has a somewhat God complex not related to it; but he is hopefully getting through it), but what his character represents and the messages the series are giving is getting effected.
