: Removed this Final Fantasy entry:
- Final Fantasy - It was thought that Final Fantasy I was going to be the last game Squaresoft made due to impending bankruptcy, so it made sense for the first game. It makes less sense when applied to a series going on it's thirteenth installment. Not counting its legion of spin offs and remakes.
...because someone didn't notice there was already one there.
Sequel Title Dissonance
launched as Artifact Title
: From YKTTW
... What? Ultima 3 inspired Final Fantasy? I... don't believe it. Because its very much more D&D then anything Ultima. -Nerem
: Maybe the troper's confusing Final Fantasy
with Dragon Quest
: Removed this addition to the Nanoha entry:
- Second season? Try the second episode. She openly wonders what the deal with the nonsensical "Lyrical" part and never uses it again.
Remember the training sequence in the first episode of the second season? Remember how she started it off with "Lyrical Magical"?
: Yeah, I just started rewatching the series yesterday and realized that I'd got that wrong in a big way. Thanks for correcting me there.
: Removed ...
- There wasn't really any war going on in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
... because obviously the contributer missed the whole blockade and massive robot invasion which bookends the film. It wasn't much
of a war, but it was still a war.

: Cut and placed here until someone explains how this is either a reasonable example or a reasonable subversion. As it stands, there are too many justifying edits, especially for those of us who don't speak Japanese.
- Futari wa Pretty Cure makes sense, as there are two of them (as "futari" actually means "two persons", not simply "we"). They kept this for the direct sequel, as the third girl isn't actually a Pretty Cure; this is fine. The first Alternate Continuity, Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash*Star, starts off with two girls, but then it co-opts their Dark Magical Girl Evil Counterparts, making four. Said Sixth Rangers got no merchandise, so this was also fine. The third universe, though, starts out with five girls; they finally gave up and called it Yes! Precure 5.
: Removed "Metal Gear Solid 4
is also the first to introduce a mecha with no Metal Gear name, while not introducing a new Metal Gear model at all.", Snake's Robot Buddy
is named Metal Gear MK II.

* Come to think of it, Buffy really didn't spend much time slaying vampires after the first couple of seasons (having upgraded to demons as her primary opponents).
Even though demons take over the majority of the plot, if this is the Buffy I'm thinking of, she still killed a few vampires in most episodes of the show right up to the end.
BritBllt: Removing this one...
- Some people will try to be witty and point out that most of the characters on Lost were rescued from the island halfway through the series, and in season 5, a scientific method of pinpointing the island's location was revealed. However, they fail to realize that the show's title actually refers to the fact that each character was metaphorically "lost" in their lives prior to crashing on the island—and a major theme in seasons 4 and 5 is the fact that the rescued characters are no better off in the real world than they were on the island. Also, during season 5, many of the main characters were more literally "lost" in the past.
For one thing, If the name's still relevant to the show, than it's not a trope example and shouldn't be on the page. But it sounds to me more like this is a preemptive Justifying Edit
by someone who can't stomach the thought that anyone in the future might even try to add Lost
to the page, and it's bad for all the reasons Justifying Edits
in general are bad. An entry for Lost
could probably stand to be added, and it could point out that the title still works on a metaphorical level, but it really needs a less defensive tone.
: Took out a whole pile of crap.
