* [Name] did a lot of stuff completely unrelated to the trope but this example is going to ramble on about it with tons of WordCruft anyway and never even mention anything related to the trope.

When reading a trope's description or working on a work's page, sometimes one may think of an example that fits so perfectly [[FanMyopia and seems so obvious]] that it doesn't seem all too necessary to explain how it fits; the editor can just provide the name of the work/character (or trope) and quickly move on to something else. Short, sweet, and to the point, right?
