* AcquittedTooLate -- The TropeNamer is Creator/AgathaChristie's ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone'', which doesn't actually contain an example of a character who is executed and then found to be not guilty after the fact.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney -- While Seto Kaiba is fond of using his wealth to buy himself out of situations in both ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' and the original ''Anime/YuGiOh'', when he actually said this in the abridged series he was just straight-up cheating in his Duel Monsters game against Yugi.

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong -- no specific TropeNamer, but whenever the phrase is actually said, TemptingFate usually applies, and not this trope.

* ThinkingUpPortals -- Named after the {{memetic|mutation}} "Thinking With Portals" {{tagline}} of the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' series, but the portals in that series don't count because Chell uses a portal gun rather than an inate ability.



* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney -- The ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' version of Kaiba wasn't using his wealth to buy himself out of a situation, he was just straight-up cheating in his Duel Monsters game against Yugi.

Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment -- The three criteria listed for something to be a BLAM is that it happens suddenly and unexpectedly, it's strange even in context, and it has no bearing on future events. The TropeNamer fails the third criterion, as the Big-Lipped Alligator shows up later to perform a BigDamnHeroes.

Be particularly careful when linking to such trope pages, because they might not be [[IThoughtItMeant what they sound like]] at first glance. (Obviously, any [[YMMV.HomePage YMMV]] entry with a specific Trope Namer could be an example in the eyes of some viewers but not others; and some have actually been renamed because of it.)

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment -- The TropeNamer is a musical number in ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' -- an animated musical about {{Funny Animal}}s set in New Orleans, where a singing alligator isn't out-of-place at all. And King Gator, the big-lipped alligator in question, reappears towards the end to take out the film's villain, thus having a profound impact on the plot. The musical number itself that is the trope namer, however, is a different story.

* ExcessiveEvilEyeshadow -- It's named after Literature/WyrdSisters. Magrat is a kind-hearted witch whose personal aesthetic is something of a Discworld hippie. But when she wants to look scary and "witchy," the cosmetics come out and take action.
