* Administrivia/EditWar: Having two tropers edit back and forth will reduce the quality of the page, easily snowballing into a WikiVandalism, even a FlameWar which this wiki absolutely does not want to create. Any attempt at such things warrant a quick suspension, a LockedPage, or at worst a spot at the PermanentRedLinkClub.

* BlamingTheRailroadedPlayerCharacter: Like the trope we call "YouBastard", this frequently seems to say worse things about ''the author'' than the audience. (And no, "putting down the game" is not a valid choice, if you want to keep the FourthWall at all intact.)

* ThirdActVillain: Antagonists who only appear during the third act. When written poorly, they would have no prior foreshadowing within the story, merely appearing out of no where to add more conflict to its climax.
