+16 (yeas:16 nays:0) Evil Is One Big, Happy Family: Not nice to call real people evil, and generally real life "bad guys" don't turn themselves into a grand league of evil. [Added 30th Jan '14 at 10:58:16 PM]
+14 (yeas:14 nays:0) Butter Face: Calling real people ugly. [Added 28th Jan '14 at 12:38:00 PM]
+13 (yeas:13 nays:0) Kill 'em All: Extensive misuse of the trope to mean an order to kill everyone. As a trope normally used at the end of and to end a story, can not apply to real life. [Added 31st Jan '14 at 06:41:36 PM]
+13 (yeas:13 nays:0) Foregone Conclusion: Is an Ending Trope about telling the ending of a narrative at the beginning. Real life doesn't have a narrative. Examples under it are more prediction of an ending than anything else. [Added 31st Jan '14 at 06:44:17 PM]
+12 (yeas:12 nays:0) Evil Stole My Faith: The religious beliefs or lack thereof of real life people is beyond the wiki's mission. [Added 5th Feb '14 at 06:32:04 PM]
+11 (yeas:12 nays:1) Invincible Hero: Real Life doesn't have a narrative. It's more a catalog of sports winning streaks than any narrative invincible heroes. [Added 31st Jan '14 at 06:44:52 PM]
+11 (yeas:11 nays:0) Nay-Theist: The religious beliefs or lack thereof of real life people is beyond the wiki's mission. [Added 5th Feb '14 at 06:30:59 PM]
+11 (yeas:11 nays:0) Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Calling Real Life people villains and evil. The description itself focuses on the "villain" thing in the third and fourth paragraphs. When tropers list someone as a WDOW, they're generally talking about a villain. [Added 5th Feb '14 at 06:34:15 PM]
+10 (yeas:15 nays:5) +10 (yeas:15 nays:5) Unfortunate Name: Too much "point and laugh" potential. [Added 25th Jan '14 at 06:38:21 PM]
+8 (yeas:13 nays:5) Tanks for Nothing: Already devoid of Real Life examples and even has the "no real life" tag in effect. [Added 19th Jan '14 at 07:26:12 PM]
