'''Aversions should ''ALMOST NEVER'' be listed on trope pages. 99.9% of the time they are the exact same thing as just not using the trope. Generally, only nigh OmnipresentTropes, or aversions only tropes should have aversions listed as examples. Simply not using a trope does not mean a work is an example of a trope.'''

In some occassions, an averted trope is basically in between the straight and the inverted trope. This doesn't count as downplay as long as the trope isn't there.

{{Trope}}s have exceptions. Sometimes a writer uses a situation that seems indelibly married to a trope, but the trope never appears. It's not a SubvertedTrope, because the lack of trope is never pointed out. Nor is it a LampshadeHanging, because the presence of trope is never pointed out. The trope just isn't there.

See MetaTropeIntro for a comparison with the ways that a trope can actually be used.
