And now to try to apply this binary to something, namely the characters from Overwatch (ALL CAPS = there's one pretty unambiguous best answer in my view)...

King
REINHARDT, WINSTON, HANZO, ROADHOG, GENJI, Soldier 76, McCree
TRACER, ZARYA, D.VA

Prophet
PHARAH, MERCY, MEI, SYMMETRA, WIDOWMAKER
ZENYATTA, REAPER, GENJI, Lucio, Torbjorn, Junkrat
BASTION


Going by character first (superficial design > cinematics > dialogue > bio on site), gameplay only to the extent relevant to character, lest we assume all tank and support classes are filed under King. (Counterexample: TF2 Medic has very little in terms of the prophetic, in contrast to Soldier and Pyro; only Pyro would be in all-caps under Prophet, and even the ones capitalized under King (Heavy, Spy, Medic) would be bad kings - expected, since they're serial killers rather than superheroes. And with that in mind, one would also expect a mixed-gender set of mythic heroes to conform more to these archetypes if they are true than an all-male set of comedic antiheroes.)

3:5 women (edit: just learned what Widowmaker's ultimate was. Immediate move from unclassifiable to all-caps Prophet.)
7:5 or 7:6 men (edit: just heard Bastion's voice. Somehow I'd been expecting something more Xan-like, but nope.)

3:5 WOMEN
5:2 MEN


EDIT: Why in the world did I put Genji down as Prophet at all, let alone in caps? His story is downright Gilgameshian. Numbers updated without strikethrough or underline, for the sake of my own sanity.

I know this

if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.
