    The trope doesn't seem very clear. What are the effects of the trope, maybe? Or, what are the effects if the trope is subverted?

    Subverted in the Rocky And Bullwinkle cartoons, where on occasion Boris Badenov would threaten the narrator.

    This is a standard trait of The Narrator. When it's subverted, that's an Interactive Narrator. So this is covered.

    Chairs, sorry.

    Narrators are rarely an actual character in the work, so that shouldn't be considered. When they are, it is either a retelling of the past or an Interactive Narrator as said above. However, with this name, it could be used for first-person narratives to ensure the narrator makes it to the end of the work. I'm sure there are a couple of subversions people are thinking of right now.

    If anything, we should only list aversions and subversions.

    Definition by negative examples, Nobody Poops, in the ignored trope sense, with Narrator's health instead, and without being a conversational topic. I don't see the trope here.
