Is this character archetype allowed on Roblox?

Making a game with lots of dialog. This post concerns one character in particular, and I’m wondering whether or not it would be inappropriate for the Roblox platform. In stories involving royalty it’s common for royals to receive preferential treatment, and for them to internalize their status such that their outlook influences the way in which they interact with others. That is the kind of character I am asking about. Looking at section 12 of the community rules I am unsure about this. Family is not explicitly listed but at the same time there may be certain connotations involved (with the concept of royalty in general) that extend the rules beyond the written word. Some work has already been put into this character which is why I did not default to just cutting it. However, it also wouldn’t be a huge loss to write a new character to replace them.


If it’s a generic superiority complex where the royal thinks they’re better than everyone else, there’s no specific violation of a protected characteristic. I’d say just be wary of the wealth disparity between this character and whomever they’re speaking to, so that socioeconomic standing doesn’t become a factor in what he says.


To copy paste the community rules for UGC:

Wall of text
  1. Building your game. When building your game, it’s important to do the following:
  • Filter all chat and text . Developers must pass all chat and/or game text through Roblox’s filtering system. Roblox scans all chat communication and player inputted text for the safety of our users and legal compliance reasons, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). All chat and content must also be reportable through the Report Abuse system.
  • Keep your game description up-to-date .
  • Enable users of your game to contact you so you can support your game .
  • Don’t build a game that encourages (or redirects) users to go off Roblox .
  • Do not ask for or collect (or allow the transfer between players in your game) any personally identifiable information (PII) . For example, you should not ask for a player’s first and last name, age, home or physical address, something that contains a person’s image or voice (such as a photograph, video or audio file), social security number, passport number (or national identity number), phone number or email address (or other forms of online contact information).
  • Do not implement any gambling or casino style games that involve real money in any way. This includes Robux, as Robux can be purchased for real money. Games should also be fair and not be skewed in the developer’s favor .
  • Do not create promotions offering prizes of any sort (including contests, raffles, lotteries, chain letters or any kind of giveaway). It is okay to offer players promo codes for in-game items only so long as they are not in exchange for something (e.g., in exchange for a thumb up on your game).
  • Do not sell, trade or give away Roblox currency, digital goods or game codes outside of the channels provided to the users on the Roblox site . Third parties sell or provide eCards (which are physical cards or digital items that provide a code that you can use to redeem Robux or other virtual items on the Services). Those Game eCards have their own terms and conditions associated with them. If you want to sell, give away or do anything else with those eCards outside of Roblox (on an external website or social media channel), then we take no position as to those actions. However, we recommend you check with the terms of those eCards and place you want to take the actions.
  • Do not permit or enable the selling or trading of random virtual items obtained in your game(s), for Robux, real currency or anything of value off the Roblox platform.
  • Assist with rolling out technical features and updates , which may be for security, stability, legal or other reasons, and may include updating your game or other content.
  • Do not upload, Publish, or otherwise Provide games or any other User Generated Creations (“UGC”) that have previously been moderated or suspended from access on Roblox , whether that content was created by you or someone else. Developers must ensure that their games and all content within their games abide by the rules. Developers who are terminated or banned from Roblox may not transfer their creations or allow others to create derivative works from them. The terms “Publish,” “Provide,” and “UGC” as used here have the same definitions as those described in the Roblox Terms of Use.
  • Do not copy, transfer, display, or otherwise use the UGC of other users outside of Roblox , including on other gaming platforms or on physical mediums, such as clothing.
  1. Creating positive game experiences. When designing your game, focus on providing positive game experiences for our community (e.g., working in a pizza restaurant, building a theme park, etc.). You should encourage the proper use of your game and never directly or indirectly encourage inappropriate behavior. For example, experiences within a game should not have an inappropriate theme (sleepover/slumber parties), contain nude or partially clothed characters, or display suggestive animations. Below is a list of inappropriate behaviors (and please note this list is not comprehensive; you should think through if you are providing or promoting inappropriate behavior):
  • Providing users’ personal information;
  • Harassment or bullying;
  • Using or encouraging the use of profanity (swearing);
  • Child endangerment;
  • Hate speech or actions;
  • Impersonation and defamation;
  • Threats and self-harm;
  • Looking for dates or dating partners;
  • Sexual content or overly violent content;
  • Dangerous, unethical and illegal activities; or
  • Content that implies or makes an avatar appear naked or in underwear/undergarments. This includes solid color avatars without clothing.
  1. Using appropriate content. Inappropriate content is not allowed within Roblox games. Do not create or upload any images, videos, audio files or other content (including animations or scripting), discuss topics or use language that falls in the bulleted list above.
    Do not upload or use content or materials that you do not own or have permission from the owner to use. If we are notified that your uploaded content violates another’s intellectual property rights, we will block or remove that content without notice and follow the process set out in Roblox Terms of Use.
    Roblox actively monitors game content and text. Some violations are blocked automatically through the use of filters and other detection systems. And we moderate and take other actions regarding content when flagged by our community.
  • Any consequences applied to violators are at the sole discretion of Roblox and may range in severity from a warning to account deletion;
  • Violations are dealt with in a manner that reflects the severity of the violation and the threat to the Roblox community.
  • Important additional information on inappropriate content:
    • All text in uploaded images must be clearly visible to Roblox moderators. Images with tiny, unclear, or unreadable text will be blocked from upload.
    • Pills, syringes, or other content representing drug paraphernalia or drug use are not permitted.
    • Alcohol, alcoholic references, drunkenness, smoking cigarettes, cigars, and vaping are not permitted.
    • Distorted audio, including excessively slowing down or speeding up the audio content to make it indiscernible, and audio that is excessively loud including screaming, high-pitched or excessive noises are not permitted.
    • Dating is not permitted on Roblox. This includes content that explicitly or implicitly promotes, encourages, or references dating.
    • “Clickbait” advertisements are not permitted. Advertisements such as “Click this 1000 times”, “Click to pick your Dominus” or ones that offer free Robux, Roblox virtual items, etc. or that otherwise falsely represent the content being advertised and solely exist to encourage a user to click on the ad to inflate ad clicks are not permitted.

Looking at the content guidelines (#2 and below) I see no reason why such a character is not allowed.
