Weird similarities?

(not endorsing this product I just thought the video looked cool and there were really cool similarities between it and guild Wars. Bizarre.)
I know that they aren't related at all, but I was watching youtube and I saw an ad that featured a Knight with a shield made of blue fire. It also included a blue dragon at his command. It reminded me of a guardian and aurene and there were lots of cool similarities. At one point in the video, his feet have a blue fire aura around him that kinda looked like the aura guardians get at their feet when they use signet of courage. Some of the things he does with his shield is similar to gaurdian shield weapon skills.

    True, paladins, holy knights etc have never been associated with the color blue before GW2.

    GW2 isn't original to begin with so other games following similar tropes isn't surprising. Or interesting.

    Did they try to replicate some kind of karka with fire abilities? Is this the next expansion trailer?
    Destroyer Karka hybrids confirmed.

    Guardians/Holy knights/Paladins in fantasies have always had either the blue or the golden theme to symbolize their holiness.

    I like the color blue with the guardians because it's often associated with water which symbolizes purity, hence why water is transparent. It has nothing to hide.

    While the monsters did remind me a bit of gw1 destroyers, the idea of a knight in blue fire and dragons arent anything new to the fantasy genre. I would be surprised if the creator wasnt inspired a bit by titles like gw or maybe even dnd.

    looks more like frost to me then fire, seems to fit since they talk about a cool machine.

    The monsters definitely reminded me of destroyers, but the rest just seemed like standard fantasy stuff and not really GW2-specific.
