Im a big fan of the Flame Warriors Archive, and often use them to quell battles, and to point out the predictability of certain antagonists.
However, there are 2 Flame warriors, that I htink are missing.
I notice this a lot online: Patriots.
Im talking about the type of patriot that has an over-whelming obsession with their own country and is dismissive of all others.
I dont like to point fingers, but one I can particularly think of, was suggesting that all the soldiers in a certain game, were replaced with American ones instead of Russian ones, because "Russian soldiers are stupid and gay".
How about this:
"Patriot is identifiable by how he will consistantly refer to his country, and insist that no other nationality is worth listeing to. He continuously passes racist remarks, and will often perposely bait Ethnix into a towering rage. On the other hand, Evil Clown, once realising Patriot's weakness, will often bait him with remarks about his country. Patriot functions in a way similar to Ferrous Cranus, except only on the subject of his country of origin - he simply repeats that his country is perfect, and refuses to acknowledge, or perhaps can't acknowledge, any evidence or arguements to the contrary. Often American, and usually Republican, most Flame warriors will play with Patriot for a while, but like all repeatative toys, he soon gets old."
"Communista, is the doppleganger of Capitalista. Communista is not necissarily poor or particularly Liberal, but will rush to defend any communist, Marxist or Leninist views, any evidence to the contrary will be met with devistating rethorts strait out of Marxist writings, or leninist speaches, and bludgeoning adversaries with accusations of "facism". Like with Capitalista, Communista rather limited in his range of interests, but his very astute command of carefully selected historical facts, abstruse statistical comparisons and arcane economic theory make him a formidable foe."

I don't think Patriot should be added because it's already covered by Ferrous Cranus. It would be a Ferrous Cranus who argued Patriotism. I completely agree with you on Communista. When I read Capitalista I immediately checked to see if there was a Communism/Socialism one.
The Patriot is Centurion. Notice that Centurion only claims to have served his country; it doesn't necessarily mean its true.
Communista already exists too - it's called Pinko.
Also, a communista would be a very weak warrior. Unlike Capitalista, communista doesn't have the facts on their side. Whenever I encounter a Marxist online (there's a few left, believe it or not), they have never stuck to proper debate guidelines. Without exception, they either:
1 - Start linking to 20-page texts of some communist/Trotsyist/whatever dogma and demand people read it before they can respond.
2 - Start ranting like crazy.
Much as Marxists do in real life, come to think of it.
