+16 (yeas:18 nays:2) Back from the Dead: The trope only involves possibilities available in fiction. None of the real life examples fits the trope description, involving misuse or shoehorning. [Added 15th Feb '14 at 08:29:25 PM]
+14 (yeas:17 nays:3) +14 (yeas:16 nays:2) Contractual Immortality: Impossible in real life, and misused as "survives many attempts to kill the person". [Added 15th Feb '14 at 08:22:19 PM]
+14 (yeas:16 nays:2) Create Your Own Villain: Villain Trope. Talks about people turning evil, usually because of one particular person's or group's actions. Thread mode, discussion on main page, and natter present. [Added 22nd Feb '14 at 05:35:25 PM]
+11 (yeas:13 nays:2) Vampire Invitation: No vampires in real life, shoehorned example. [Added 19th Feb '14 at 08:43:39 AM]
+11 (yeas:14 nays:3) Powered by a Forsaken Child: Way too controversial, shoehorned examples, borderline creepiness in regards to children, and soapboxing.

+10 (yeas:13 nays:3) +10 (yeas:10 nays:0) Dirty Old Man: We REALLY don't need to know. Also kind of flame bait material.

+8 (yeas:13 nays:5) Informed Ability: Trope requires a creator's intent that doesn't exist in real life.
[Added 14th Feb '14 at 09:40:38 PM]
+8 (yeas:15 nays:7) +8 (yeas:9 nays:1) Informed Loner: Not possible as described in Real Life. Three somewhat shoehorned RL examples. [Added 25th Feb '14 at 09:02:44 PM]
+7 (yeas:12 nays:5) Deadpan Snarker: Is used as "person made funny remark I like". The visual aspect of the trope (emotionless "deadpan" expression) is lost. Is used as an excuse to gush. [Added 9th Feb '14 at 08:08:19 AM]
+7 (yeas:16 nays:9) Dawson Casting
: Impossible in Real Life. [Added 14th Feb '14 at 09:40:51 PM]
+7 (yeas:12 nays:5) Informed Flaw: Trope requires a creator's intent that doesn't exist in real life. [Added 14th Feb '14 at 09:45:36 PM]
+6 (yeas:8 nays:2) +3 (yeas:13 nays:10) 0 (yeas:1 nays:1)
