** ''Maybe'' [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment not a good idea to have a trope like this]], lest it devolve into ComplainingAboutPeopleYouDontLike or {{Flame War}}s.

* In the video game ''[[spoiler:VideoGame/AzraelsTear]]'', each of the main characters is seen to betray at least one other (and the PlayerCharacter in some cases) in all of the MultipleEndings. Well, obviously, it doesn't all happen in the same continuity, but given that which ending you get depends mostly on a LastSecondEndingChoice, clearly the plans for betrayal are all there at the same time. I can't find a trope that seems to fit, which seems crazy, given how common this sort of situation is in fiction.

* When {{Wikipedia}}'s article on ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' became a featured article (a honor which goes to the best articles), one of the users claimed that "something so trivial, commercial and unimportant as a computer game" was unfit for featuring on the main page. He also suggested that it "should either not be in a wikipedia, because it's importance is not obvious, or it should have a far smaller entry to reflect it's unimportance in the order of things." Also, it's "barely a suitable subject for inclusion in an encyclopaedia", and video gaming in general is "a trivial area, not deserving of much effort in recording." Wheeee.

** GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere is the closest thing we have, frankly it sounds more like you were expecting the story to be HijackedByGanon but it wasn't, which isn't a trope since it is based solely on WrongGenreSavvy expectations.

** The trope that sounds closest to the title is TemptingFate or NothingCanStopUsNow since this is about a small group of people suffering from a combination of their pride making them WrongGenreSavvy.

* In another one, Donald's being menaced by a bee. So he put a flowerpot over his rear end to protect it from the stinger, the bee starts dive bombing for the hole at the bottom of the pot. Then Donald, in a sudden moment of [[GenreSavvy clarity]], realizes that the bee would sting him through the hole, so he puts a cork in it.
** You named it: GenreSavvy.

* I know we have a trope for difficulty increasing in sequels, but apparently neither DifficultyCreep nor SequelEscalation is it. Halp? We have a redlink on RockBand because someone thought it was "Sequel Difficulty Creep" and I don't know what to fix it as.

* Is there a trope for background plot elements -- fluff, basically -- that get promoted to a major plot element in another part of the same universe? Two examples that immediately come to mind, both from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'': the Blood War in ''{{Planescape}}'', and the Beholder Genocide Wars in ''TabletopGame/{{Spelljammer}}''.

* In MegaManZX, we can modify the trajectory of the bullets of Model F to create odd bullet maneuvers. Do we have a trope for this?

** Not having seen it, DocumentN would expect it to be a show-within-a-show. If it was an X-Files episode of Cops, it might be something similar to a non-interactive ARG, a {{Mockumentary}}, a viral-marketing play or ''{{Lonelygirl15}}''.
