Short version, all examples and wicks of the tropes listed must be In-Universe.

Long version, when a trope is about reactions, but is only to be listed when the reactions are In-Universe, as in the reaction must come from the characters or narration, never the viewers. That includes the warning that tropers should not pothole the trope in lines when it's not actually in the show.

This is for tropes that look YMMV, or used to be, but are actually strictly objective.

Compare No Real Life Examples, Please!.
