* '''Basic Trope''': A flaw is introduced very suddenly and exaggerated for effect.
* '''Played Straight''': [[UnluckyEverydude Bob]] has his very first cigarette. Halfway through the episode, he's already gone through an entire pack of cigarettes, his teeth are yellow, and he is easily irritated without his cigarettes.

* '''Deconstructed''': No matter how well-intentioned, being this {{Anvilicious}} has the effect of breaking the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. (Using the above example, we all know someone who smokes, and many of us know someone who has/had serious health problems and/or died of smoking-related disease. But very few, if any, of us could claim to know (or even know of) someone who managed to compress the effects of decades' worth of smoking into 30 minutes.) Things just don't happen this way, so the {{Aesop}} becomes a LostAesop.
* '''Reconstructed''': If the effects of the action are presented in a more realistic fashion and spread out over the course of the series, the {{Aesop}} remains intact, and so does the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. The audience may actually learn something.
* '''Parodied''': Bob has his first cigarette and [[YouFailYourMedicalBoardsForever instantly dies of cancer]].
