    We already have the Ego Tropes index. Is there enough distinction here to merit another index?

    Wanting attention is different in real life from having an ego, but I'm not sure if it's a meaningful enough distinction in fiction.

    Although the name is pretty awful.

    ^This doesn't have to involve being egotistical. It's more of just characters wanting attention whether they deserve it or not.

    ^^^What do you suggest for the name, then?

    I think Ego Tropes has more to do with the ego and this has more to do with the id. I'm not sure if that's explicit enough of a difference though. This is very similar to Selfishness Tropes, though this is more of a subindex ("it's all about me" = selfish; "everyone must care about me" = attention?).

    OP, the issue isn't the name (though it is pretty bad); the issue is the content and whether TV Tropes can use a page like this.
