Pick a few words listed by a few categories can be useful to come up with new ideas.

Examples of words listed by categories in video games :
- https://kairosoft.fandom.com/wiki/Genres_and_types_(Game_Dev_Story)
- https://kairosoft.fandom.com/wiki/Settings_and_themes_(Anime_Studio_Story)

Let's imagine a quick starter kit for HDM gimmicks or track ideas :

- HDM Styles : Hardstyle, Xtra Raw, Uptempo, Speedcore, Frenchcore, Freestyle, Subground, etc...
- Settings : Festival, Club, Urban, Medieval, Beach, Prehistoric, Mountain, Forest, Space, etc...
- Jobs/Hobbies : DJ, Tourist, Samurai, Gangster, Skater, Detective, Simp, Pirate, Boxer, Hero, etc...
- ??? : (eventual additional stuffs like adjectives, emotions, nationalities, instruments, species, etc...)

Possible results/combos :
Xtra Raw Detective, Speedcore Samurai, Prehistoric Hardstyle Skater, Uptempo Space Pirate, etc...
Then it's about filling the categories with more words for more ideas.

Jump manga characters basics as a creative tool for music artist gimmicks.
- source about jump manga characters basics 1 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cYXYIc9OyI
- source about jump manga characters basics 2 : https://books.google.fr/books?id=as2dDwAAQBAJ


Overall, Jump manga characters are defined by a few things :
- 1 theme : usually the job/hobby of the main character.
- 1 motto / challenge : do what others can't do.
- 3 values : friendship, strife, victory
- healthy and unhealthy character traits
- the desire to progress

Then for music artist gimmick creation, it would be about choosing a theme, a challenge, some values, defining healthy and unhealthy character traits. To fill the gimmick universe, there can also be specific stages, items, power ups, transformations, signature moves, catch phrases, dimensions, events, secondary characters, etc...

Does it help to get some motivation too ? I don't know. You did post recently in sad thread that you did lose motivation. Or maybe it could be the topic for another thread ? Something like "Motivation tips for HDM Artist". "HDM Coaching" ?

Yes that's a good idea also. Because beofre I opened up my DAW and closed it again, because I panicked and didn't know what to do. I'm learning that there are wise ways to start and get motivated.
I'm feeling a bit of motivation again after using a synth that I feel comfortable to use. This is one good tip - use a synth that you like to use.
