* SatelliteCharacter is not about the Moon being used as a character in a work.
* SarcasmFailure is not to be confused with an InsultBackfire.
* SarcasticClapping and SlowClap are separate concepts, though combining them would no doubt be fun.
** For the record [[Series/PowerRangersSPD Bridge Carson]] combined the two at one occasion.
* SaveScumming has nothing to do with [[ChronicHeroSyndrome a hero's duty to protect everyone]], including lowlifes.
* SaveTheDayTurnAway is not the thing common in {{Toku}} fights where after the enemy is defeated, the heroes turn towards the camera and pose dramatically while the enemy explodes behind them.
* A ScapegoatAd is not an advertisement for a product or service fans blame for their disappointment. That would be ScapegoatCreator.
* A ScaramangaSpecial is not an [[TripleNipple extra nipple]].
* A ScareCampaign is not [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington's]] bid for re-election.
* ScareEmStraight is not about turning homosexuals into heterosexual, although the method had been used for that.

* {{Scatting}} is not...well, [[BowelBreakingBricks let's try not to]] [[{{Squick}} explain too much]].
* SceneryPorn is not when an adult film is shot in the woods. Nor is it [[RuleThirtyFour the various aspects of the environment having an orgy]]. It's not about having a {{fetish}} for it, either.

* The SpiritWorld is not a subtrope of LevelAte based around distilled liquors.
* SpitTake is not part of the solution to an early puzzle in ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge'', nor is it a common thing to do to suspects in a PoliceProcedural. It also cannot be used to cure a CannotSpitItOut.

* StalkingMission is not a guide on how to secretly observe and follow around [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic that fourteen year-old Twi'lek orphan girl]]. Besides, she's probably already following ''[[PlayerCharacter you]]'' around, so that's kind of pointless.

* StaticStunGun does not refer to stun guns that aren't even animated when used and thus look like the wielder is too stupid to activate it before using. Nor does it refer to stun weapons that don't have any visible effect in the first place. Nor is it a stun gun used by [[WesternAnimation/StaticShock Static]], not that he needs one.

* StoryBreakerPower is not the same as LivingLieDetector, and doesn't usually have to do with the ability to automatically see through false alibis either.
* StoutStrength does not involve beer.
* TheStraightAndArrowPath is not about arrows flying in a straight line. That's NoArcInArchery.

* StraightGay is not someone indecisive about his/her sexuality.
** Nor is it when the [[StraightMan character providing setup for the joke]] is the gay character.
* StraightMan is not a superhero with a notable lack of HoYay. Nor is it dealing exclusively with heterosexual men.
