Added DiffLines:

* BrokenWindowWarning was previously "Window Pain". The old trope was defined as "[[Administrivia/PeopleSitOnChairs a window breaks]]" which wasn't tropeable on its own. One case was determined to be tropeable enough to split off into its own trope.

* DisappointingLastLevel was once the completely nonindicative "Xen Syndrome", named for the area that the final levels of ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' take place in. Renamed since, despite being a YMMV trope, the old name suggested that everyone had the same opinion about the finale of ''Half-Life''.

* DisappointingLastLevel was once the completely nonindicative "Xen Syndrome", named for the area that the final levels of ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'' take place in. Renamed since, both due to the [[FanMyopia barely-penetrable name]] and due to the fact that, despite it being a YMMV trope, the old name suggested that everyone had the same opinion about the finale of ''Half-Life''.

* EasilyOverheardConversation was formerly "The Firstlaw of Sitcom Acoustics". Was renamed due to disuse and not being limited to sitcoms.
* EatingTheEyeCandy was originally called "Female Gaze", but it was agreed that it is not a variation of MaleGaze and shouldn't sell itself that way. FemaleGaze is now its own trope page by its proper definition as the DistaffCounterpart to MaleGaze.

* ExpositionFairy was originally named "Ninja Butterfly", after the game ''Red Ninja''. It was changed because Ninja Butterfly sounded like it's about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin stealth lepidopteran assassins of shadow]], instead of "friendly advice-giving character".

* DemotedToExtra was formerly "Isn't It Sad", which originated in a meme among fans of ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', in reference to the character Sacchin. Renamed because it was too obscure, not to mention that the trope title could easily be assumed to refer to any kind of sad situation in general.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing was originally named "Pink Lipstick Aesop" after a scene in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', which [[FanMyopia made no sense to anyone who didn't get the reference]]. The name was changed to "Truffaut Was Right", referring to a quote from French director Creator/FrancoisTruffaut about anti-war movies. However, not everyone knows who he is, and aside from that he is also known for proposing the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auteur_theory auteur theory]]. The new name gets the point across.

* CreatorsPet was "The Wesley" for a long time. Renamed for being a character-named trope (which led to misuse due to tropers thinking that it was "TheScrappy, [[Administrivia/TheSameButMore but moreso]]"), as well as failing the OneMarioLimit, since there are characters from various other works who share his name.

* AdjacentToThisCompleteBreakfast (named after a gag by Creator/DaveBarry) once was "Part of a Balanced Breakfast Stone Soup", which is less intuitive. However, it is still used as the name for a TropeCo [[TropeCo/PartOfABalancedBreakfastStoneSoup product]].

* DatingDoSiDo was originally "Degrassi Dating". Lack of archived discussion prevents Trope Archaeologists from determining whether it was changed as part of a general purge of show-named tropes, or because it was [[IThoughtItMeant easily mistaken for]] a reference to the [[TotallyRadical totally]] [[TheEighties '80s]] made-on-a-shoestring look of [[Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh early incarnations]] [[Series/DegrassiHigh of the franchise]].

* DivergentCharacterEvolution was formerly known as "Luigification". As with most character-named tropes, this was changed because Luigi from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' has other traits, many of which are better-known than this one.
