* PaedoHunt was formerly "All Pedophiles are Child Molesters". Changed after it was discovered by actual pedophiles, who tried to use the page to defend themselves, fighting the moderators all the way.



* PowerupMount was formerly "The Yoshi". Was being shoehorned into ''every'' use of the [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] character even when he wasn't a mount, and had a low inbound count.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis was renamed from "This! IS! SPARTA!" because the old name is a widespread meme that was prone to [[PotholeMagnet pothole abuse]]. (Also, it never showed up properly since it was a custom title on a ptitled page.)

* MummiesAtTheDinnerTable started life as "Last Dance with Mary Jane", then was changed to Norma Bates to to make it clear that it covered more than necrophilia, then was changed again when it was pointed out that "Norma Bates" was misleading to people who were familiar with ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', opaque to people who weren't, and was a spoiler, to boot.

* MulticulturalAlienPlanet used to be "Lots of Planets Have a North". Created around a line from ''Series/DoctorWho'' that wasn't an example for the sake of the reference, this misleading title suggested it was AliensOfLondon i.e. aliens with real life accents rather than, well, a MulticulturalAlienPlanet -- an alien planet with distinct ethnicities, cultures, and traditions. Misuse followed.

* NuttySquirrel was originally titled "EverythingsNuttierWithSquirrels", a snowclone of the discredited "Everything's Better With X" family. As with several similarly named tropes, the earlier name encouraged a list of all squirrels regardless of portrayal.

* OstentatiousSecret was once "Meghan Box", after a high-profile secret on ''{{Felicity}}''. The name was changed since without the reference the title was opaque.

Added DiffLines:

* OurGodsAreDifferent used to be "Our Gods Are Greater", which was renamed to fit in with the "Our X Is Different" naming scheme, one of the few succesful snowclones.
