* BiggerThanJesus -- Music/JohnLennon [[BeamMeUpScotty didn't say this.]] He actually said they were "more popular than Jesus", and he insisted that it was a lamentation rather than a [[BlasphemousBoast boast]] (he found it ridiculous that the public got more enthusiastic about singing groups than about religion).

* GeneralRipper -- General [[PunnyName Jack D. Ripper]] of ''Film/DoctorStrangelove'' is indeed insane, and he does indeed concoct a scheme to start a nuclear war between the United States and Russia, but he has almost none of the classic markers of the trope. Rather than being a loud, brash, jingoistic madman who [[WeHaveReserves gleefully sends his troops to die in battle]], he's a quiet, soft-spoken man who [[MaskOfSanity successfully manages to hide his mental instability from everyone else in the military]], and he spends most of the movie [[PragmaticVillainy keeping his troops safely fortified in a military base]].

* MisterBig -- The villain of that name in ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'' isn't a particularly small man, and BIG is literally his initials in the [[Literature/LiveAndLetDie original novel]].

* GoldenSnitch -- Creator/JKRowling has stated that it's common in professional Quidditch for a team to catch the Golden Snitch and still lose despite the point bonus, like what happens at the Quidditch World Cup in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire''. It's just that the version Hogwarts uses is more simplified and a lot faster, thus the bonus has more of an effect on the match.

* RomanticPlotTumor -- Originally "Creator/GeorgeLucas Love Story", changed because most romance stories in Lucas films are ''not'' poorly written and absorbing most of the film, and his [[Film/AttackOfTheClones famous example]] [[MisBlamed might not be his fault]].
