Contrast {{Self Demonstrating Article}}s and ThisTropeNameReferencesItself. Compare DefiedTrope and NonIndicativeName. Also see ThisImageIsNotAnExample. Is similar to DeadUnicornTrope in the sense hat both are about believing a certain trope is more prevalent than it really is, but is distinct in that these tropes have ''one specific moment'' that does not follow.

* MadHatter: The Trope is about a madman who acknowledges, accepts, and embraces his madness, something that the Hatter in ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'' was not shown to do. (At least not enough to make him stand out among the other residents of Wonderland.) If anyone in the book fits the Trope, it's likely the Cheshire Cat.

* {{Lolicon}}: The actual novel ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' does not positively portray the protagonist's attraction to young girls. The SpearCounterpart Shotacon is even less accurate, as it is used for sexualized young boys, but ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}'' does not sexualize Shotaro.
