This index used to be called "Chekhov's Pun" -- the title ([[SelfDemonstratingArticle but not concept]]) was taken from ChekhovsGun, a common target of the various punners that frequent YKTTW. NightmareFuel, NightmareRetardant, NightmareDreams, [[Nightmare Valley UncannyValley]], and NightmareFuelStationAttendant suggest that this is happening to another trope, though those ''are'' directly related to the original article.

It's a fairly common practice in the wiki to make puns based on pre-existing trope titles. Outside of this wiki, this is called a "snowclone", where in a sentence "X is the new Y", X and Y can be substituted for anything the speaker wants to use.

But very often, this new trope will have nothing whatsoever to do with its namesake. ([[EverythingsWorseWithSnowclones And that's bad]].)
