Whether a given proposal qualifies as a SubTrope or Administrivia/TheSameButMoreSpecific can be [[Administrivia/LumperVsSplitter highly subjective]]; TropesAreFlexible, after all, but we don't need a new page for ''every last variation'' possible.

Added DiffLines:

When someone wants to start a new article which can be summed up as "the same as Article X, only with <specification>" -- or may alternately be phrased as "[[XMeetsY a combination of article X and article Y]]".

This is generally ''not'' a very good idea, since it can easily clutter the wiki with [[Administrivia/RidiculouslySimilarTrope nigh-undistinguishable trope variations]]. On the other hand, if the added qualification is clear enough that the result serves a distinct narrative function from the original -- then it becomes a SubTrope.

When the added distinction is "the same, but played UpToEleven", this is known simply as Administrivia/TheSameButMore (since most instances are just an ExaggeratedTrope).

If the added distinction is so narrow that the result fails to actually ''establish a pattern'', the trope is Administrivia/TooRareToTrope.

For attempts to create a suspiciously-similar SisterTrope, instead of a hierarchial SubTrope, see Administrivia/RidiculouslySimilarTrope. (Please try to avoid getting the two confused.)
