** Nor is it a part of {{Cyberspace}} where you're surrounded by program code.
* [[MaddenIntoMisanthropy Madden Into Madness]] does not involve [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment torture with clips of]] [[NoodleImplements John Madden]], using him to narrate a descent into madness, an ill conceived game with him as a psychatrist, nor John Madden going AxeCrazy.
** Nor even a person becoming crazy from playing too much of his games. [[TakeThat That would be the executives that greenlighted]] ''MaddenNation''.

*** Or spewing profanity at a football announcer.

* MarathonBoss and the MarathonLevel are not trademark features of ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}''.
* MarshmallowHell is not where bad Peeps go when they die. Nor is it greedy people being [[IronicHell force fed marshmallows]].
** Nor is it a cartoon interpretation of 'hell' that really [[AHellOfATime isn't all that bad]]. Quite comfortable, really.
** Nor is it a SugarBowl so extreme it comes off as creepy.

** It's also not commentary on the lack of morality of the month of May, or a command for an individual named May to contain evil.
* McLeaned does not refer to being turned into [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Chris McLean]].
** Or losing weight through [[SupersizeMe eating at [=McDonald=]'s]].
** Or Don [=McLean=] (although American Pie also involves death in a plane crash).
* A McNinja is not employed by Apple Computer, or used against that company
** Nor is s/he employed by McDonalds.
** And unless the story takes place in the wackiest AlternateHistory universe possible, a McNinja will not explicitly be a member of an [[{{Scotireland}} anciant clan of Scottish and/or Irish contract assassins]].
** And s/he will know ''real'' ninjutsu, not the alleged version taught at a [[UsefulNotes/MartialArtsBelts McDojo]].

** Of course. [[VillainsNeverLie Why would we lie to you]]?

** And it is also not about how Fuminori in ''Saya no Uta'' sees everything as made of rancid flesh, bones, and blood.
* MeddlingParents don't need to [[YouMeddlingKids get away with it]], [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin and they certainly won't let you, either]].

** And it isn't about someone being the musical successor to Bruce Springsteen.
* MegaManning isn't what you get when you use a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever growth ray]] on Peyton or Eli. Or on [[WesternAnimation/AlphaTeensOnMachines Axel]]. No Katies, either.
** It is also not about VideoGame/MegaMan, VideoGame/MegaManX, [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Mega Man Volnutt-Trigger]], [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork MegaMan.EXE]] or [[VideoGame/MegaManStarForce Mega Man Geo-Omega]] [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever growing to a giant size]], though it has to do with them.
** Not is about becoming extremely manly.
*** Yes, [[TestosteronePoisoning We]] [[RatedMForManly have]] [[TookALevelInBadass tropes]] [[MemeticBadass enough]] as it is.
* {{Meganekko}} is not about huge cats. That would be MegaNeko, which is, in turn, not about pretty girls who just wouldn't be the same without their glasses. (And neither of those has anything to do with the character "Big Pussy" from ''Series/TheSopranos''.)
* MementoMacGuffin is not when it turns out you already got the MacGuffin, but [[Film/{{Memento}} forgot about it]].

* MetroSpecificUnderworld has little if anything to do with [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Shibuya's UG]]. It is also not where old Geos go to die. Nor is it a land of the dead [[AfterlifeExpress only accessible by public transportation]]. Nor is it where [[{{Transformers}} Metroplex]] will go when he dies. Nor does it have anything to do with ''MagicKnightRayearth'' character [[ThemeNaming Geo Metro]]. Nor is it about a hell focused on fashion trends. ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'' is right out.

* MickeyMousing is not about creating a FunnyAnimal who is an Everyman Hero.
* MightyWhitey has nothing to do with ''CaptainUnderpants'' or Orbit Gum.
* {{Miko}} is not a [[NunsAreMikos nun]]. Nor is it a [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick paladin]]. Nor does it [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime hang out with Bulkhead.]] [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Toyosatomimi no Miko]] is not one of them.
* MildlyMilitary is not about [[Series/DadsArmy Sergeant Wilson]].
* The MileHighClub does not involve celebrating the history and culture of [[UsefulNotes/{{Denver}} the Mile-High City]].

** Neither it nor MoeMoe refer to a CrackPairing involving Moe from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', [[Film/TheThreeStooges a Stooge]], or both.

* MoeMoe is not about a [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender flying lemur]].
** Nor is it a mispelled command to hastily cut grass.

** Nor is it when [[TheThreeStooges Moe glares at Curly for doing something stupid, again]].
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness does not refer to mineral substances. That's the original scale.

* A MomentOfWeakness is not an example of CutsceneIncompetence, or at least not usually.

** Nor does it have anything to do with the co-hosts of ''Radio/TheStephanieMillerShow''.

** Simply thinking about it will not put you in peril.
* SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample is not an example written by [[BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure Bill and Ted]]. That would be most excellent, however.

Nor is it about [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Farfetch'd]] desperately searching for a weapon. Nor is it when a chef is missing an ingredient for his or her soup.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:N]]
* {{Nanomachines}} are not typical implements used by [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]]. Those would be {{Magic Wand}}s and {{Attack Drone}}s.
* {{Narm}} is not something [[PinkyAndTheBrain Pinky]] says. Nor is {{Nerf}} or VideoGame/{{Zork}}.
* A NastyParty is not a team of {{Jerkass}} adventurers. It is also not a party that turns merely obscene.
* A NauticalKnockout is not the Navy's version of a [[GoodLookingPrivates Good-Looking Private]].
* NearVillainVictory is not a spoiler for the end of ''Manga/DeathNote''. [[spoiler:Even if it's arguably correct.]]
** NearDeathExperience is not [[spoiler:The 40 seconds Near waited to see Light and Mikami fail in killing them.]]
*** It's not about gaining ExperiencePoints from killing Near, either.
** As for NearRapeExperience, we're not going to [[{{Squick}} go on that subject]].
* NecessaryWeasel does not mean that every work of fiction ever made absolutely must have a WeaselMascot.
** And it most especially does not describe [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendofKorra Paboo]] or [[Franchise/{{Naruto}} Nerugui]] or their importance to their respective properties' plots.
* A NeckLift will not make you look 10 years younger.
* TheNeedless isn't a character or element the work could do without.
* SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove isn't about the poor {{Woobie}}s and similar characters.
* A {{Neet}} is not a {{keet}} who has SuperOCD.
* {{Nerf}} has nothing to do with the creatures from ''Franchise/StarWars'' known for their scruffy herders.
* The NerfArm is not a foam limb, it's not necessarily made by [=NERF=], and isn't the arm with which game designers depower otherwise GameBreaker functionality.
* NeutralFemale is not a CharacterAlignment.
* NeverRecycleABuilding is not advice to game developers to avoid overdoing CopyAndPasteEnvironments.
* NeverSayDie does not refer to never using the singular form of "dice."
** Yet, the trope page actually does list an example of that.
* NeverTrustATrailer has nothing to do with personal suspicion of those things that trucks drag behind them. Where ''does'' [[{{Transformers}} Optimus]]' go?
** [[MemeticBadass Wherever the hell it wants!]]
* If you work in the catalogue industry and you get a lot of impatient people who can't seem to read the date on which a book or sale starts, you may start to mutter that NewMediaAreEvil, but this page isn't about that.
* TheNewRockAndRoll is not about trying to find a successor to that genre.
* NewsMonopoly is not about how, when characters watch TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks, if it's a Fox show it'll be Fox News, and if it's an NBC show it'll be MSNBC.
** It's also not among the [[RecycledPremise hundreds of versions]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}}''.
* NewspaperDating has nothing to do with personal ads in the classifieds. It also doesn't mean that sentient newspapers are dating, either, although RuleThirtyFour says [[{{Squick}} someone has written an explicit version of that]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero is not an expression of appreciation when admiring the pyrokinetics after the SupervillainLair and/or the DeathRay have been blown up by TheHero.

* NightmareFuel is not [[IncrediblyLamePun fuel for]] [[Anime/CodeGeass Knightmare Frames]].
** The "Nightmare Fuel" trope itself has had numerous problems in the past, because it wasn't obvious by its name that it meant ''unintentional'' nightmare fuel. This potential for confusion got so bad that eventually the page was transplanted to AccidentalNightmareFuel and a more general "scary things" trope plugged into its place.
* NightmareFuelColoringBook is not the example page for NightmareFuel from coloring books.

** It's also not about [[Series/GetSmart Barbara Feldon]] or [[IceHockey Wayne Gretzky]].
* [[NinjaButterfly Ninja Butterflies]] are, sadly, not... well... butterflies who are {{Ninja}}s. Nor ninjas who use butterflies as shurikens.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot is not a [[FollowTheLeader knock off]] of ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''.
** Nor does it describe [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic HK 47]] Even though, depending on your playstyle, all of those worlds might describe it.
* A NinjaProp is not a stage prop (nor an airplane propeller) that vanishes into the night undetected.

** Not is about becoming extremely manly.
*** Yes, [[TestosteronePoisoning We]] [[RatedMForManly have]] [[TookALevelInBadass tropes]] [[MemeticBadass enough]] as it is.
* {{Meganekko}} is not about huge cats. That would be MegaNeko, which is, in turn, not about pretty girls who just wouldn't be the same without their glasses. (And neither of those has anything to do with the character "Big Pussy" from ''Series/TheSopranos''.)

* MyHeroZero is not a trope about [[FanOfUnderdog someone who perceives a feeble, klutzy zero to be a steeled, gutsy hero]]. Nor is it about TheHero losing badly at sports. And although somewhat related, it is not about being rescued from certain death at the hands of [[VideoGame/MegaManX Vile]], [[Anime/CodeGeass the Britannian Empire]] or [[Manga/PilotCandidate Zero Enna]] either.
** While we're on the subject, it has nothing to do with ''SchoolhouseRock'' or prequels to ''Series/MyHero'', either.
* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels is not about people discovering that eels had taken up residence inside their aquatic vehicles while docked near the shore.
* MyKungFuIsStrongerThanYours is not a declaration of a type of martial art being inherently and objectively superior in combat to another.
* MyLittlePanzer is not the RatedMForManly version of ''MyLittlePony''.
* MyNameIsInigoMontoya is not about changing your name to [[Film/ThePrincessBride Inigo Montoya]].
* MyOwnGrampa is not about someone really proud of his or her grandfather, and it's not related to the GrandfatherClause.
* MyOwnPrivateIDo is not about gay marriage in fiction, much less with one or both [[strike:underground like a wild potato]] closeted.
** It does not refer to marrying one's own genitals.
* MyRulesAreNotYourRules is not about moral relativism. (It is thus nothing at all like BlueAndOrangeMorality.)
** It is not a refusal to share your measuring devices.
* MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat has nothing to do with robots playing ''MagicTheGathering''.
* MySkullRunnethOver is not about the improvised goblet used by the [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarian]] who likes AGlassOfChianti after dinner.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch, but it doesn't necessarily gather together, hold up picket signs, and chant slogans all that often.
* MythArc has nothing to do with Robert Asprin's ''Myth'' series.
* MythologyGag is not the result of reading about the [[{{Mythology}} birth]] of Odin's horse.
** Nor is it when you make a joke about mythology, though in an adaptation of a myth, a joke about the original might be a MythologyGag.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:N]]
* {{Nanomachines}} are not typical implements used by [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Nanoha]]. Those would be {{Magic Wand}}s and {{Attack Drone}}s.
* {{Narm}} is not something [[PinkyAndTheBrain Pinky]] says. Nor is {{Nerf}} or VideoGame/{{Zork}}.
* A NastyParty is not a team of {{Jerkass}} adventurers. It is also not a party that turns merely obscene.
* A NauticalKnockout is not the Navy's version of a [[GoodLookingPrivates Good-Looking Private]].
* NearVillainVictory is not a spoiler for the end of ''Manga/DeathNote''. [[spoiler:Even if it's arguably correct.]]
** NearDeathExperience is not [[spoiler:The 40 seconds Near waited to see Light and Mikami fail in killing them.]]
*** It's not about gaining ExperiencePoints from killing Near, either.
** As for NearRapeExperience, we're not going to [[{{Squick}} go on that subject]].
* NecessaryWeasel does not mean that every work of fiction ever made absolutely must have a WeaselMascot.
** And it most especially does not describe [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendofKorra Paboo]] or [[Franchise/{{Naruto}} Nerugui]] or their importance to their respective properties' plots.
* A NeckLift will not make you look 10 years younger.
* TheNeedless isn't a character or element the work could do without.
* SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove isn't about the poor {{Woobie}}s and similar characters.
* A {{Neet}} is not a {{keet}} who has SuperOCD.
* {{Nerf}} has nothing to do with the creatures from ''Franchise/StarWars'' known for their scruffy herders.
* The NerfArm is not a foam limb, it's not necessarily made by [=NERF=], and isn't the arm with which game designers depower otherwise GameBreaker functionality.
* NeutralFemale is not a CharacterAlignment.
* NeverRecycleABuilding is not advice to game developers to avoid overdoing CopyAndPasteEnvironments.
* NeverSayDie does not refer to never using the singular form of "dice."
** Yet, the trope page actually does list an example of that.
* NeverTrustATrailer has nothing to do with personal suspicion of those things that trucks drag behind them. Where ''does'' [[{{Transformers}} Optimus]]' go?
** [[MemeticBadass Wherever the hell it wants!]]
* If you work in the catalogue industry and you get a lot of impatient people who can't seem to read the date on which a book or sale starts, you may start to mutter that NewMediaAreEvil, but this page isn't about that.
* TheNewRockAndRoll is not about trying to find a successor to that genre.
* NewsMonopoly is not about how, when characters watch TwentyFourHourNewsNetworks, if it's a Fox show it'll be Fox News, and if it's an NBC show it'll be MSNBC.
** It's also not among the [[RecycledPremise hundreds of versions]] of ''TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}}''.
* NewspaperDating has nothing to do with personal ads in the classifieds. It also doesn't mean that sentient newspapers are dating, either, although RuleThirtyFour says [[{{Squick}} someone has written an explicit version of that]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero is not an expression of appreciation when admiring the pyrokinetics after the SupervillainLair and/or the DeathRay have been blown up by TheHero.
* A NietzscheWannabe is not some random forum poster who thinks s/he's so damn clever for abusing Nietzsche's famous "he who hunts monsters" quote against someone s/he doesn't like.
* NightmareFuel is not [[IncrediblyLamePun fuel for]] [[Anime/CodeGeass Knightmare Frames]].
** The "Nightmare Fuel" trope itself has had numerous problems in the past, because it wasn't obvious by its name that it meant ''unintentional'' nightmare fuel. This potential for confusion got so bad that eventually the page was transplanted to AccidentalNightmareFuel and a more general "scary things" trope plugged into its place.
* NightmareFuelColoringBook is not the example page for NightmareFuel from coloring books.
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant has nothing to do with [[TalesFromTheCrypt the Cryptkeeper]] or Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, having to get a new job.
* A NightmareSequence is not part of the gameplay of a NintendoHard game which motivates SequenceBreaking.
* NineOutOfTenDoctorsAgree does not refer to [[Series/DoctorWho ten incarnations of a Time Lord]].
* ''ComicBook/{{The 99}}'' has nothing to do with [[http://www.99restaurants.com/ the restaurant]], [[VideoGame/NinetyNineNights Nights]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/99_Luftballons red balloons]], or [[Music/JayZ the problems of which a woman is not included among]].
** It's also not about [[Series/GetSmart Barbara Feldon]] or [[IceHockey Wayne Gretzky]].

* A NinjaLog is not the logbook of a NinjaPirateZombieRobot Captain's journeys.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot is not a [[FollowTheLeader knock off]] of ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles''.
** Nor does it describe [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic HK 47]] Even though, depending on your playstyle, all of those worlds might describe it.
* A NinjaProp is not a stage prop (nor an airplane propeller) that vanishes into the night undetected.
* NinjaRun is not about the recommended course of action if you see one. (Don't bother; either you're too late, or they're not a very good ninja.)
** It also has very little in common with a StealthRun.
* NinjaTropes are not appreciably stealthier or deadlier than any other tropes.
* NintendoHard is not about getting a hard-on while playing Nintendo games. Nor is it about how Nintendo's products were [[TonkaTough physically durable]].
* NipponIchi is not about [[FatalFury Mai Shiranui]] or her [[{{Gainaxing}} most valuable pair]]. Or Japan being itchy.
** It's not "Me Bouncy!", by the way.
* NobodyCanDie is not an alternate name for DeathTakesAHoliday (the former describes settings wherein people ''should'' die, they just never seem to, while the latter describes situations in which nobody can die for good, in-universe reasons.)
* NoBra does not mean not wearing underwear. That would be VaporWear.
* NoCanOpener isn't a situation where the villain is having trouble unleashing a SealedEvilInACan.
** Nor is it when TheSmartGuy is not present to help SolveTheSoupCans.
* NoCasualtiesRun is not the next line from the mouth of the guy who declared that NoOneCouldSurviveThat.
* NoConservationOfEnergy is not about someone who makes no attempt to reduce his or her power bill.
* NoCureForEvil is not a proclamation that evil people are beyond redemption. Neither does it have to do with AsLongAsThereIsEvil.
** It's also not about a rule that states that the bad guys of ''PrettyCure'' series can't have a Cure of their own. ([[HeartcatchPrettyCure They had]], [[DarkerAndEdgier and HOW!]])
** It's not a rule saying that evil people can't listen to the band The Cure.
* NoDoubtTheYearsHaveChangedMe is not about any changes Music/NoDoubt has made to you over the years.
* NoEnding is not when a fictional work ends with a BigNo.
* NoFairCheating is rarely invoked when you are TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty.
** Nor does it mean that only ''unfair'' cheating is allowed.
* NoFinalBossForYou is not about games that [[BadExportForYou don't have final bosses when released in other parts of the world]].
* NoFlowInCGI is not about CGI characters who can't have their periods.
* NoGearLevel doesn't mean a game has no [[EternalEngine technology-theme level]] in it.
* NoGuyWantsToBeChased is not about guys hating being the one being chased in a car chase, nor is it about [[VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy The Guy]] not liking those AdvancingWallOfDoom segments, or ''{{S4 League}}''[='=]s Chaser mode.
* NoHonorAmongThieves is not DavidWeber saying that there will be no ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' books called ''HonorAmongThieves''.
* NoisyGuns are not firearms that are running around hooting and hollering.
** Nor are they guns that are unrealistically noisy when ''shot''; that's BangBangBANG.
* NoJustNoReaction is not how Film/DrNo [[BondJamesBond introduces]] himself.
* NomDeMom doesn't mean that a character's alias or [[UnnamedParent only name]] is Mom. Nor does it refer to [[MonsterMisogyny moms getting eaten]].
* NominalHero is not a list of [[CharacterTitle works named after their protagonists]].
* NoMouth AndIMustScream seem to be one trope, but they're not.
* NonActionGuy is not about if [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Might Guy]] has a brother at MissionControl. (They wouldn't get along well.)
* NoodleIncident has nothing to do with the guitarist of {{Gorillaz}}.
* NoodleImplements is not about tools made out of pasta. Believe me, I tried, don't ask.
* NoOSHACompliance is not about policies that forbid [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha Dan from taunting]].
** Nor does it refer to [[Series/GameOfThrones Osha refusing to submit to Theon Greyjoy]].
* NoPartyGiven is not about a disappointing birthday.
* NoPeriodsPeriod most certainly has nothing to do with punctuation. (You want NoPunctuationPeriod.) Nor does it have anything to do with a grammatical LogicBomb.
* NoRecycling is not an aversion of CopyAndPasteEnvironments.
* NoseNuggets isn't a literal interpretation of the phrase "Diggin' for gold."
* NoSell is not about when a sales clerk has to open up a cash register just to make small change.
* NoSexAllowed is not a proclamation that a certain person will never, ever get laid.
* NostalgiaFilter is not a search engine exclusive to [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com]].
* NoSuchThingAsSpaceJesus is not about SpaceJews.

** Nor does it refer to apps on game consoles, despite what the box of ''Videomation'' for NintendoEntertainmentSystem says.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp is not about parents deliberately preventing their children [[ManChild from maturing]].
* NotAlwaysEvil has nothing to do with a website featuring [[Website/NotAlwaysRight bad customers]] or [[Website/NotAlwaysWorking bad coworkers]].
* NotBrainwashed is only the specific trope where a character looks like they've been brainwashed, but has actually changed sides for real. If they're simply ''not brainwashed'', that's not that trope. (Though if they're pretending to be that trope as part of a FakeDefector ploy, that would probably count as a subversion.)
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught has nothing to do with cheating on your significant other.
* NotCompletelyUseless is not about backhanded compliments given to TheLoad after a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* NotEvenBotheringWithAnExcuse is not referring to [[ExcusePlot plots]] that [[NoPlotNoProblem didn't]].

** Nor does it refer to someone with [[ImprobableAimingSkills really good aim]].
** Nor is it about the AlwaysAccurateAttack.

* NotNowKiddo is not related to ''Film/KillBill'' or [[Manga/SoulEater Death the Kid]].
* NotQuiteDailyComic isn't about {{Schedule Slip}}s of WebComics.
* NotSoCrazyAnymore isn't about an insane character regaining sanity.
* NotUsingTheZedWord does not involve refusal to talk about a certain ''PowerRangers'' villain or ignoring the boss of the ''Film/MenInBlack''.
* NotWearingPantsDream has nothing to do with ''StrikeWitches''.
* NotWearingTights is not about a male character or tomboyish female refusing to wear "girly" clothes.
* NoU is not a [[ConstrainedWriting lipogram]] lacking the letter after T.
** And it doesn't mean you don't have a WiiU either.
* NoYay is not a moment in sports where the crowd boos. It is also not an anti-crack cocaine statement.

* [[{{Netorare}} NTR]] does not have to do with the NintendoDS's WorkingTitle of Nitro (NTR).
* A NuclearFamily has nothing to do with nuclear power. Well, except for WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons.
* A NuclearOption is not what Utsuho Reiuji's power-up would be if she became playable in the next ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game.
