SuperTrope of CantStopTheSignal. The characters who pass on the idea are likely {{Doomed Moral Victor}}s. Likely to inspire an InnocentBystander to make a DefiantStoneThrow. Compare WeAreEverywhere, for those bad ideas that can't be killed.

killed, and the [[MindVirus "Neurovirus" or "Memetic Science"]] for bad ideas that deserve to die but are too sentient and/or too contagious to be killed by law of [[MindWipe morality]], [[{{Thoughtcrime}} man]] or [[TheHeretic god]] (and don't expect TimeTravel or BigDamnVillains to fix it either).

* The Franchise/StarWars ExpandedUniverse will ''never'' be rid of the [[ProudWarriorRace Mandalorians]], why? Well, in the words of Mandalore the destroyer:
--> ''"Here's why you can't exterminate us,'' aruetii[[note]][[YouAreTheTranslatedForeignWord refers to someone not Mandalorian, or traitors.]][[/note]] . ''We're not huddled in one place we span the galaxy. We need no lords or leaders so you can't destroy our command. We can live without technology so we can fight with our bare hands. We have no species or bloodline so we can rebuild our ranks with others who want to join us. We're more than just a people or an army, aruetii. We're a culture. We're an idea. And you can't kill ideas but we can certainly kill you."''
