* {{Autodoc}} has little-to-nothing to do with [[{{Transformers}} Ratchet.]] And he'd resent you for thinking of him like that.

** It also has nothing to do with masturbation.

* A BladeOfGrassCut is not about [[ImprobableWeaponUser weaponizing grass plucked from the ground]]. But that would be awesome.
* A BladeOnAStick is not a form of snack food that caters to one's masochistic desires, or to those with suicidal tendencies. Also, since they swallow blades ''vertically'', sword-swallowers will be unable to properly partake of this without removing the blades from the stick.

** It is not about [[TheBraveLittleToaster Kirby]] -- or even VideoGame/{{Kirby}}.
** It is not about god giving a vacuum cleaner greater power.

* A BluenoseBowdlerizer is not a bowdlerizer from Nova Scotia.
** Well, not necessarily, anyway...
** Nor does it have anything to do with [[Manga/OnePiece a certain reindeer pirate]].
* BlueVelvet is not about the room [[{{Persona3}} Ig]][[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} or]] hangs out in.
* BoardToDeath has nothing to do with the EndingFatigue of a TabletopGame or beating someone to death with a wooden plank. However, if you brought a plank to a meeting (for some reason) and proceeded to bludgeon someone with it, it would be an example.
** Nor is it about using the AfterlifeExpress.
* BodyguardCrush is not a quote from a bodyguard who talks in the third person and in HulkSpeak, nor does it involve the act of crushing bodyguards.

* BlueVelvet is not about the room [[{{Persona3}} Ig]][[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} or]] hangs out in.

** Nor does it have anything to do with FaceFullOfAlienWingWong
* {{Canon}} is not about a camera company.
* CanonDefilement is not a butchering of Pachelbel's ''Canon in D Major'', no matter what your uppity "cultured" relatives may say about ''Canon Rock''.
** Or smashing a camera with a hammer.
** Or sabotaging Civil War era artillery. That's ''Cannon'' Defilement.
* CanonSue is not the reaction to CanonDefilement (though the former may be involved in the latter).
** Nor is it about a person named Sue who uses Canon brand products.

* A CaptainErsatz is not a person who only pretends to have military rank.
* The CaptainsLog is not what TheKirk leaves in the toilet. Ew.
* CardCarryingVillain is not about [[Franchise/YuGiOh villains who carry actual cards with them]]. [[TheGambler Not even if it's their whole motif.]]
** It is also not about a villain who has a metaphorical ace up his sleeve.
*** Also not to be confused with a villain who metaphorically carries all the cards.
** It's not about [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Moe Szyslak]] either.
** Nor is it necessarily SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, although he is often an example.

** Nor is it about having [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Envy]] as your cargo.
* CargoShip, ShipToShipCombat (and -- well, pretty much ''anything'' listed under ShippingTropes) have [[{{Shipping}} nothing]] to do with actual sea vessels or naval transportation. But with this in mind, there are exceptions:

** Neither is is the inevitable fight against [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Deathwing]].
** It is also not an orgasm that causes a disaster.
* CatGirl is not the younger version of Comicbook/{{Catwoman}}, nor is it her younger sidekick. Nor is it one that is both female and feline. It only applies LittleBitBeastly with cat ears and sometimes a tail, but otherwise are look mostly like a normal person. Characters with fur all over should be under other tropes.
* CatholicSchoolGirlsRule does not describe a particular form of matriarchal theocracy where the leaders are always children.
* CatScare is not where a cat scares a person by popping out of a drawer.
* CeilingBanger is not a more extreme DarthWiki/WallBanger, or about a woman trying to break through the proverbial Glass Ceiling, or about people reaching up and accidentally hitting their head on the ceiling.
* A CelestialDeadline need not be a condition placed upon a CelestialBureaucracy. They wouldn't follow it anyway.
* CensorshipBureau is not about the drawers in which you hide your porn.

* ChainsawGood is not about CharacterAlignment of chainsaws.
** Nor is it a cross between StupidGood and AxCrazy.
* ChallengingTheChief has nothing to do with the contents of a typical episode of ''RetroGameMaster''.
* ChandlersLaw is not "When in doubt, have a man burst into the room [[{{Friends}} and be funny]]."
* ChangedMyJumper: you may find this hard to believe, but there was this movie called ''Film/{{Jumper}}''...
** Also nothing to do with changing settings on a computer motherboard.
** Also nothing to do with jumper cables.
** Nor is it particularly about cleaning up after an episode of BringMyBrownPants.
** This has nothing to do with [[VideoGame/{{Jumper}} changing Ogmo's skin]] for that matter.
* ChangedMyMindKid has a comma in its name: it is not the name of a [[KidSidekick sidekick]] with psychic powers.
* ChangelingFantasy has little to do with TheFairFolk, or VoluntaryShapeshifting. In particular, it has nothing whatsoever to do with [[Comicbook/TeenTitans Beast Boy's]] idle daydreams.
* ChaosArchitecture has nothing to do with buildings affected by [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}} Chaos]]. Most of the time, anyway.
* ChaoticGood, ChaoticEvil and ChaoticNeutral are not opinions of the card game or the tie-in TV show known as WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}}.

* CharacterDerailment does not involve a character in a [[BusCrash Train Crash]].
* CharacterShilling is about characters on a show going out of their way to convince each other (and the audience) that another character is awesome. A [[Main/CharacterShill Character]] ''[[Main/CharacterShill Shill]]'', on the other hand, is a character who advertises for a real-life sponsor during a commercial break on their own show.
* CharityBall is not about a character who becomes briefly and unexpectedly generous, à la IdiotBall.
* A ChaseScene does not necessarily involve [[WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots a robot who turns into a police car]].
** Or Creator/ChevyChase. (Although it [[NationalLampoonsEuropeanVacation has]] [[{{Fletch}} happened.]])

* Chekhov's Pun (now called {{Snowclones}}) does not refer to [[ShaggyDogStory a long story-spanning build-up that leads to a terrible pun.]]
** Nor is it about a throwaway, groan-worthy joke that [[ChekhovsGag turns out to be important to the plot.]]
* CherryTapping is not about deflowering virgins (don't worry, we all made that mistake).
** Nor is it about drawing juice from small red fruits.

* A ChestInsignia does not depict the pectoral area.
* ChestMonster is not about [[Literature/HarryPotter off-puttingly creative romantic language.]] It isn't about [[FaceFullofAlienWingWong Chestbursters]] from ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' either. Nor is is it about creatures without a head that have a face on their torso. It is neither a [[GagBoobs particularly large]] pair of breasts that [[MarshmallowHell entrap unwitting persons within]] nor the pectoral area of an especially hirsute man. It's not a shirt that is fearsome, either.
* The ChewbaccaDefense does not involve winning a board game through the implied thread of ripping your opponent's arms out of their sockets should you lose.
* ChewingTheScenery is not the modus operandi of the BigEater. Though both may involve ham.

* CluelessAesop is not about the Aesop of the movie ''Film/{{Clueless}}''

** It's not an alias for FrankensteinsMonster.

* ContinuityPorn does not involve RuleThirtyFour. Then, again...
** Nor is it about a series of porn films with an overarching plot.
* ContinuitySnarl is not an oddly named [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 Dinobot]] toy. There is no such thing as a Continuity Grimlock; you're probably thinking of ContinuityLockout.

* On that note, CrowningMusicOfAwesome is not limited to music playing during [[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning crowning ceremonies]].
