* An inversion of this is tropers thinking that mentioning a trope happening in RealLife somehow is not the same thing as stating a trope is TruthInTelevision, and feel the need to state the latter, especially in {{YKTTW}} (the reason it's not listed in the descriptions is because [=TiTV=] is an index, which can't be used in ykttw).

* For a work to qualify as an OldShame, it has to be something which the creator is so ashamed of or repulsed by that they actively try to distance themselves from it. It doesn't mean any work which has been criticized by its creator for any reason.

* For the most part, GenreSavvy is pretty self-explanatory. However, it's widely misused (to the point that the misuse significantly outnumbers the correct use) because some people use it to note any time when a character makes a good decision in general, as opposed to making a good decision based on genre conventions. It's also misused a lot for its sister trope FunctionalGenreSavvy; Genre Savvy is not simply about characters ''behaving'' according to their genre, but about characters ''[[TaughtByTelevision learning from other fiction]]'' about how to deal with their genre. Finally, don't confuse with MediumAwareness; a Genre Savvy character usually isn't aware that their own world is actually fictional.

* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap refers to a level {{cap}} that is way higher than what is needed for or can be reached by the endgame[[note]]example: cap is 50 but the game can be beaten by an average player at level 20[[/note]], not simply level caps with high numbers. Conversely, an AbsurdlyLowLevelCap is not a level cap with a low order of magnitude[[note]]example: cap is 99 and the player reaches it about halfway through the game[[/note]], but rather a cap that can be reached well before the endgame even without any intentional and prolonged LevelGrinding.

* It's also one of the main reasons why Administrivia/NoNewStockPhrases became a rule -- people just started listing examples of anytime the words would come up regardless of whether it fit the trope's description.

* {{Woolseyism}} is supposed to refer to changes in the localized version of a work that are considered superior to the native-language version of it. However, it is too commonly thrown around to simply mean any changes to the work in the localization process.

* BodyHorror is "any form of Horror or Squickiness involving body parts, parasitism, disfigurement, mutation, or unsettling bodily configuration, ''not induced by immediate violence''". However, it's often misused for anything horrific that happens to a human body, even when this is simply the result of a brutal attack or violent death.
