** Nor is it about the Athenian law maker's taste in clothing.

** Nor is it about the Athenian law maker's taste in clothing.

** It's neither an airplane nor a plane of existence.
* {{Feelies}} is not an UnusualEuphemism.
* FelonyMisdemeanor is not the name for a class of crimes under California state law. (California state law spells it "[=Felony/Misdemeanor=]", with a slash or a hyphen between the two words.

** I dunno. [[FetishFuel For some people...]]

* {{Fiction 500}} is not [[WackyRaces a car race of all fictional characters]].
* FightingWithChucks does not involve using Chuck Taylors as a weapon, nor does it necessarily involve enemies named Chuck (or, god forbid, any multiple instances of ChuckNorris).
* FightInTheNude is not about characters battling in their birthday suits. In most video games to which that would apply, the complete opposite of this trope is in play.
* FightLikeACardPlayer is not what SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker does with his razor cards while fighting Franchise/{{Batman}}. It also has nothing to do with arguments that lead to fighting amongst poker players.
** There is no game called "Fight Like A Card".
* FighterMageThief is not a summary of the main cast of ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater''. Nor is it [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot someone who's a fighter, a mage AND a thief all at the same time.]] Or someone who kidnaps people who are just fighters and mages at the same time.

* FireBreathingDiner is not about [[UnsatisfiableCustomer very angry people at restaurants]]. Nor is it about [[SapientHouse diner restaurants that can breathe fire]].
* FirstBlood is not about the ''Rambo'' movies. Neither does it refer to the first victim of an AntiHero or a villain, much as ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' and other things using its voiceovers -- ''DefenseOfTheAncients'' for one -- would have you believe.
* FirstChurchOfMecha is not about the Wicca stand-in from ''Literature/TalesOfMU''.
* FishOutOfWater has nothing to do with a game of Marco Polo.
** Nor does it refer to fishing while you are not in the water, which is normal. Or a fish made out of water.

** Also, the FisherKing is not (usually) the king over the FisherKingdom.

** It's not a UsefulNotes page about the number 555.
* FiveRoundsRapid is not something done in a DrinkingGame, although its presence may inspire one.

* A FlashMob is not a branch of the Mafia known for exposing their private parts in public or for being particularly good at using Adobe Flash.
* FlashStep is not a [[ReportingNames reporting name]]. Nor is it when the floor lights up under someone's feet disco-style. And although TheFlash could, in theory, put the move to good use, it's not something he does very often. It's also not when you advance through a web animation one frame at a time.
* A FlatCharacter is not necessarily flat chested, or what happens after AmusingInjuries involving steamrollers.

Or the brick from the BrickJoke. And under no circumstances should you compare them to [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Vogon ships]]. It also does not refer to [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Wing_Saber#Energon Wing Saber]].
* FlyingSeafoodSpecial isn't one of [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenGold]]/[[Series/PowerRangersSamurai Gold Samurai Ranger's]] attacks, or a Japanese action flick parody about seafood that can fly.

* FoeTossingCharge is not about an explosive charge that will send foes flying, nor is it about a foe who is tossing an explosive charge.
* FoeYay is not a statement of support for villains. Though the implication is that the good guys support the villains... ''that way''.
** Nor is it about the pronunciation of the word "foyer".

* A ForeheadOfDoom is not about particularly destructive foreheads, nor is it about Doctor Doom's forehead.

** Nor is it a counterfeit made by said gods.
* ForgotHeWasARobot is not about robots so sentient, they convince themselves to be human (or whatever they're modeled after) and have to be reminded they are, in fact, automatons, that would be TomatoInTheMirror.
* FountainOfMemes is not a fountain that has [[MemeticMutation memes]] coming out of it.
* FountainOfYouth is ''not'' ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin; that is currently part of {{Public Domain Artifact}}s. It's actually the trope for de-aged character(s).
* FourIsDeath does not necessarily mean you will die at age four. Nor is it a version of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_strikes_law three strikes law]] in which a fourth "strike" nets the death penalty. (Although both of these ''could'' be true given the nature of the trope in question....)

** Nor does it involve a fridge being needed to stop [[ExplosiveOverclocking digital logic circuits from overheating]].

** [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks They've got rid of them nearly everywhere now,]] [[BritishStuffiness and we want them back!]]

** Nor is it ''Film/{{Frozen}}''... [-[[RecycledInSpace IN TIME!]]-]
*** Or for that matter, ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''... [-[[RecycledInSpace IN TIME!]]-]
** It does not involve literally freezing time, though that could be used to justify it.
** Or being frozen just in time.
* FryingPanOfDoom is not what [[Literature/LordOfTheRings Sauron]] cooks breakfast with.
** Nor Doctor Doom, for that matter.
