* The assumptions in a [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp Great Politics Mess-Up]] don't necessarily have to involve the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. For example, if a work written in the 18th century is set in the 20th century and this fictitious 20th century still has the thirteen British colonies rather than an independent coast-to-coast union of states, it counts.

A rarely stated, but fairly common, belief here is that some tropes are rigid, and that the only variation comes with PlayingWithATrope. Or some here think that most tropes are rigid, unless "Sliding Scale" is in the name. But it's not really true at all (also the reason we have Administrivia/TheSameButMore).

Administrivia/TheSameButMore). This belief often manifests in examples as citing the trope name, but with emphasis added on a changed word.


Added DiffLines:

* Many examples of DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything are about sexually suggestive things, but that's not a requirement; allegories for historical conflicts, contemporary conflicts, controversial topics or even just mundane unpleasantries are also legitimate examples.


Added DiffLines:

* PlanetLooters don't necessarily have to target Earth, so examples where humans are looting other planets are still straight examples. The inversion would be if, say, one civilisation was selling its planet's resources to others.

* AdultFear is about anything that a well-adjusted adult with common sense would be scared about. While children being in danger is a common source of this, examples don't always need to be about them; things like the threat of losing one's home (due to a fire, natural disaster, not being able to pay the rent, etc.), humans rights violations, domestic terrorism, [[EvilDebtCollector debt collectors]], and PoliceBrutality are all things that can happen in real everyday life.



* XanatosGambit and BatmanGambit are both about specific types of ingenious plans. The thing is, there is nothing saying they have to be of a certain scale. Using these plans could involve just getting a promotion from your boss, to [[TakeOverTheWorld world conquest]]. They also have nothing to do with being good or evil, despite their respective {{Trope Namer}}s; heroes can use Xanatos Gambits and villains can use Batman Gambits.
* A work featuring a StuckAtTheAirportPlot need not take place at an actual airport. Any old bus or train station will do.

* XanatosGambit ButtMonkey means simply a character who things hardly ever work out for, and BatmanGambit are both about specific types of ingenious plans. The thing is, there is nothing saying more. There are people who ''refuse'' to apply it even where it fits, because they have mistakenly believe that it is required to be PlayedForLaughs. There ''is'' a type of a certain scale. Using these plans could involve just getting a promotion from your boss, ButtMonkey that ''is'' required to [[TakeOverTheWorld world conquest]]. They be PlayedForLaughs--but that trope is TheChewToy.
