This is what happens when a trope normally is a PetPeeveTrope, but one particular example doesn't trigger the usual BerserkButton, or the reverse, when a FavoriteTrope is done in such a way as to hit said Button.

* It could be because the context requires the trope. (Sure, the BlackDudeDiesFirst in the film, but that was what exactly happened in the [[BasedOnATrueStory real-life incident the film is based on.]])

* It could be because the context requires the trope (given that the cast of this slasher film was entirely black, BlackDudeDiesFirst is sort of a given).

* It could be because the trope is used in a [[DownplayedTrope very understated way]] (yes, that character is very clearly [[CreatorsPet the author's pet]], but he's only on screen for maybe two scenes per episode at most).

Added DiffLines:

* It could be because the UnfortunateImplications normally associated with a trope are cancelled out by another (a FauxActionGirl is paired with a genuine ActionGirl to show that competence isn't tied to gender).

* It could be because the subtext that's normally present in the trope is avoided (yes, he is a [[MightyWhitey British lord raised by a native African or South American tribe]], but he repeatedly claims to not be as good a hunter as most of the men of his adoptive tribe, and this is (mostly) borne out by what we see; he's still good enough to beat the bad guys, though).

Why? Well, for the non-annoying example of a PetPeeveTrope case (which is the one we'll be providing examples for) there are a few possibilities:

* It could be because the [[JustifiedTrope justification]] is actually logical (there's a RecordNeedleScratch in the trailer, but it's a movie about an actual Vinyl record shop in the 60s).

No examples, please. Given that this is an AudienceReaction derived from another AudienceReaction, specific examples in the main page would be problematic.
