Added DiffLines:

* ElectronicEyes speaks for itself. '''[[VideoGame/DeusEx My Vision Has Been Augmented]]''' probably too but, you know, phrase-based title and meme-shoehorning and those are no-no.


Added DiffLines:

* WatsonianVersusDoylist is both shorter, more neutral and not as specific as '''You Can Explain That Plot Point As Much As You Like But It's Clear You're Just A Hack'''.

* OpinionMyopia is shorter than '''How Could Anyone Like That Piece of Crap?''' and '''How Could Anyone Not Like This Masterpiece?''', and isn't political FlameBait, unlike '''(Insert Political Stance Here) Is a Mental Disorder'''.

* BuxomIsBetter isn't exactly the most subtle trope title, but it's significantly less blatant than '''[[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Busty Makes Me Feel Good]]'''.

* We don't call CantTakeCriticism '''[[VideoGame/BioShock1 Screw All You Fucking Doubters!]]''' because our title is more concise and doesn't contain swearing.



* It's called [[DarthWiki/ThisExists Darth Wiki]] because on the one hand, someone would have objected to '''This Is Where We Put Our Answer to /b/tards''', and on the other hand, '''B''' is too short.

Added DiffLines:

* FetishRetardant is more understandable than '''[[VideoGame/{{Undertale}} But Nobody Came]]''', which would be a hard-to-understand innuendo that has nothing to do with the quote. We had the trope before ''Undertale'' came out, anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* We picked AGodIsYou instead of '''You Shall Be As Gods''' because [[VideoGame/{{Xenogears}} the game that phrase comes from]] unfortunately [[ThisIndexIsNotAnExample isn't an example.]]

* AllDeathsFinal isn't called '''[[VisualNovel/FateStayNight People Die if They Are Killed]]''', since that's a CaptainObvious meme and not really an example.



* One day we might call AmoralAttorney '''[[Music/TheBeeGees He's a Lawyer! Aaah! Aaah!]]'''...but not before WeirdAlYankovic sung that.

* It's called ArsonMurderAndJaywalking because '''Furries Loli-Porn And Dubs''' is too much of a gratuitous TakeThat to the anime {{fandom}}. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And furries]], of course.
* ArtifactTitle is much snappier than '''The Title Used To Make Sense, And Then The Series Changed In A Way That Doesn't Fit With The Title, But We're Sticking With That Name Anyway For The Sake Of Familiarity'''.

* Calling TheCuckoolanderWasRight '''Listen to the Voice of Butters''' is already bad as [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Butters]] is not the best example of a {{cloudcuckoolander}}, so the fact that no one gets Music/TheHumanLeague reference (Ha! They don't even have an entry here!) is rather irrelevant.

Added DiffLines:

** ''''Scuse Me While I Kiss This Guy''' is also only one potential mishearing of a lyric, the title of a somewhat obscure book about Mondegreens, and probably too easily mistaken for something else.
