* Played straight: A villain plants an IncrediblyObviousBug on a chair. Despite the green flashing light and periodic beep, {{the hero}} does not notice it.

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.

'''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 universally used tropes, 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.'''

That is the core meaning of "averted". The writer just went past the trope. He ignored it, he forgot it existed, or it wasn't even a trope at all in his culture.

Even though ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability, averting is generally not an example for mentioning on a trope page, except for tropes that are [[OmnipresentTropes so common]] that the list of aversions is actually shorter, such as LimitedWardrobe. The reason is that different people have different expectations. For example, say there is an action movie that does not have a single instance of StuffBlowingUp. Just because you expect it does not mean that it was subverted or used in any manner. If it was not used, then it is not an example. We don't want to have to scroll through examples like:
