* RookieRedRanger -- The ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise includes quite a few Red Rangers who do indeed fit the trope to a T, but it should be noted that not all of the Red Rangers are actually the leaders of their respective teams (even if they ''are'' rookies). Standout examples include the second half of ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' (where the leader is Tommy the White Ranger) and ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' (where the leader is Jen the Pink Ranger). [[note]]In the former, Rocky the Red Ranger replaced the original team leader Jason as Red Ranger after he was PutOnABus, but Tommy succeeded Jason as leader because he had far more experience; in the latter, Wes the Red Ranger was an IdenticalGrandson of Alex the Red Ranger, who inherited his powers because his DNA unlocked them, but Jen became the new team leader because she was originally Alex's second-in-command.[[/note]]

* CompleteMonster -- The trope was named by Creator/StephenKing in his 1981 [[BooksOnTrope Book on Trope]] ''Literature/DanseMacabre'' to describe the character Herbie Satten from the Creator/ECComics strip "Foul Play!", a conceited baseball player who poisons a member of the opposing team to win a game. However, the character only commits one act of murder that would simply place him beyond the MoralEventHorizon, whereas the Complete Monster displays a pattern of such villainous acts. Additionally, the manner in which Herbie [[PayEvilUntoEvil is himself murdered by the members of the opposing team]] in a VigilanteExecution and then [[SeveredHeadSports has his body parts used for a grotesque ball game]] means his heinousness doesn't even stand out by the standards of the story. Herbie is not a CompleteMonster but rather an AssholeVictim and HateSink.

* BrilliantButLazy -- Franchise/SpiderMan is not lazy; he just appears that way as Peter Parker because he spends so much time being a superhero that he is often unable to focus on improving his civilian life.

When Doc Ock names the trope ad-verbatim near the end of ''Film/SpiderMan2'', he just saw Spider-Man unmask himself and is giving a wry IronicEcho about his earlier assessment of Peter.

* DeadUnicornTrope -- An index for tropes that never really existed in straight form. Ironically, though it's used as a pun on DeadHorseTrope, {{Unicorn}} itself is not a Dead Unicorn Trope.

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: The Music/{{Rammstein}} song is a commentary on the [[EaglelandOsmosis spread of American culture throughout the world]], not about authors getting elements from other cultures wrong because of unfamiliarity with them. In fact, given that Rammstein is a German band and the trope itself is not limited to the United States, it would only be an example if the song assumed that We All Live in Germany.
