* The OneManArmy does not serve the OneWorldOrder. Not yet anyway, but it's only a matter of time before someone makes this reality.

*** The first episode of ''[[ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger Kyoryuger]]'' wants to talk with you.
* OneWingedAngel is not about ''Series/{{Angel}}'' [[PowerGivesYouWings gaining wings]]. It's not a cousin to [[AceCombat Solo Wing Pixy]] either.
* OnlyInAmerica is not about works that are only available in the US. That would be NoExportForYou.
* OnlySixFaces is not a trope about cubes. Or even {{crate|Expectations}}s. No, not dice, either. For that matter, it's also not about a character who has way too many alternate identities.
** Nor is it an insult used by hydras.
* OnlyShopInTown is not an order commanding you to limit your shopping to urban outlets.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness is not about the InternetBackdraft that occurs when a FanFic writer portrays a character differently from canon.
* OpenTheIris is not an order to lower the Series/{{Stargate|SG1}}'s defenses to allow travelers into Stargate Command, nor about doing naughty things to [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/fe/Young_Iris.png a]] [[http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/eb/Black_White_Iris.png girl]] [[http://images.wikia.com/megaman/images/7/7a/IrisX4.jpg named]] [[http://images.wikia.com/megaman/images/8/8e/BN6_Iris.jpg Iris]]. Nor is it about time-lapse photography of flowers blooming.

*** Likewise {{OSS}} does not stand for [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Operate]] [[VideoGame/MegaManStarForce Shooting Star]]. (Or open-source software.)
* OurElvesAreBetter is not a version of YourVampiresSuck using Elves. A work need not actually say its elves are superior to someone else's elves to have it.

* A news reporter does not have to have a red shirt on to be a RedshirtReporter.
* A RedSkiesCrossover is not specifically a crossover with CrimsonSkies
* RedsWithRockets does not refer to the Soviet space program.
** It also doesn't refer to Red from {{Pokemon}} joining Team Rocket.
** Nor is it about [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Red XIII taking over Cid's love of space.]]
** Nor does it have anything to do with [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 the RED Soldier or his rocket launcher]].
* ReducedToRatburgers is thankfully not about being reduced to burgers for rats.
* ReedRichardsIsUseless does not define who is the least effective member of the Franchise/FantasticFour.
* ReferentialMania isn't about a character or work that [[SpeaksInShoutOuts makes a lot of references to other works.]]
* RefugeInAudacity is not about using the music authoring software of that name to get better after encountering the DarkestHour.
* ReinforceField has nothing to do with [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Reinforce Eins or Zwei.]]
* RelationshipSue has nothing to do with palimony.
* ReligionIsMagic is not TheMoralSubstitute for [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship Is Magic]].
* The [[RenamedTropes/AToE Renamed Tropes: A to E]] section isn't just a list of tropes whose names used to begin with A but now begin with E, though it does include those. The same goes for the other sections.
* RentAZilla is not about providing {{Kaiju}} for the general public's use. Aww...
* A RepeatCut isn't the end result of a FlechetteStorm.
* ReplacementScrappy does not mean TheScrappy is being replaced with a better character. Quite the opposite, unfortunately.
** The original doesn't have to be TheScrappy, either.
* ReportingNames may be a Soviet-era trope, but it doesn't involve the SecretPolice.

* A RightHandHottie is not [[MidoriDays a cute girl who literally replaces your right hand]].
* RightHandVersusLeftHand has nothing to do with masturbation. The trope also has nothing to do with the legal jargon about the right hand not needing to know what the left is doing to consist a conspiracy charge. No arm-wrestling tournaments, either.

** Or about baseball or cricket, where there are a lot of professional lefties.

** It is also not about erections so powerful that they tear holes in a man's pants.
* RingsOfDeath aren't the places where death matches occur. Neither does it have to do with a defective Xbox 360. It's also not when there is more than one [[ConsoleRPGCliches121To144 Ominous Ring of Land]], or a [[TheRing deadly videotape]]. And we know you feel clever for thinking back to that moment in the mid-nineties where you finally reached Knuckles's final boss in ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic & Knuckles]]'' and he started firing deadly rings at you, and you're getting warmer, but no, that's still not quite it.

* RingRingCRUNCH is not when somebody is on the phone with a TooDumbToLive friend who gets eaten/destroyed/whatever in the middle of the conversation, nor is it a brand of cereal made of telecommunication parts. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Draper Although once, long ago...]]

* RiseToTheChallenge has nothing to do with Nergal's battle theme from the 7th ''FireEmblem''.
** It is also not merely accepting a dare to perform a difficult act.
* RiskyBusinessDance is not a corporate strategy with a high chance of failure that involves breaking out the turntables and showing off your awesome moves.
* RiverOfInsanity does not involve any member of the [[Series/{{Firefly}} Serenity crew]].
** It also isn't a river that literally causes insanity in anyone who drinks from it, the way Lethe causes amnesia, or a FountainOfYouth causes de-aging.
* RoadMovie is not the latest film by SeltzerAndFriedberg. That would be ''Vampires Suck''.
* RoadRunnerPC is not about censoring Wile E. Coyote's "deaths". Nor is it a [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames licensed game]] for home computers. Nor is Time Warner Cable offering a free computer in exchange for a 24-month contract, as some [=ISPs=] did during the dial-up era.

* {{Roguelike}} isn't a term for [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} southern belles who can drain your life energy with a touch]].
* A RogueProtagonist isn't literally a protagonist who's a rogue, [[LovableRogue lovable]] or otherwise. [[GuileHero That's another trope]]. [[VillainProtagonist Or this other trope.]]
* RoleCalled, but he doesn't necessarily [[XCalledTheyWantTheirYBack want his pun back]].
* A RollercoasterMine is not a mine on a rollercoaster track, nor is it a mine that when stepped on lobs the person in question into the air. Nor does it involve a young child who insists that only he can ride it.
** Nor does it describe a situation in which you must [[RunningGag learn to work with a hostile roller coaster for the common good.]]
* A RomanAClef is not a music notation symbol from Rome.
* A RomanticPlotTumor is not a plot tumor thats particularly smooth with the ladies.
* RonTheDeathEater is not a article refering to [[http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/File:Deathearter_ron.PNG this]].
* {{Room101}} is not an [[{{Subject101}} introductory class]] in which you learn about rooms.
* RootingForTheEmpire is not what imperial truffle-sniffing pigs do.
** Nor what military hackers do to the enemy's computer systems.
** Nor (if you use the Australian meaning of "root") is it about being a state-sanctioned prostitute.
** Most especially it has nothing to do with Franchise/AustinPowers.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin is not a description of how shapely [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog a certain]] [[ClassyCatBurglar Classy Bat Burglar]] looks in finery.
* RoundBushyHair isn't a huge afro.

** Nor is it necessarily related to [[VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi Takano Miyo]].
** Nor, unless you're Webcomic/{{xkcd}}, does it involve [[http://xkcd.com/505/ cellular automata]].
** It's not part of [[Franchise/StarTrek The Ferengi]] Rules Of Acquisition (unless you interpret "War is good for business" in a very dirty way).
** Furthermore, it does not refer to a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Request_for_production Request For Production]] in the US federal court system.
* RuleAbidingRebel is not about Raspberyl from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}''.
* RuleOfCool is not one of the laws of thermodynamics.
* RuleOfFunny is not when a clown and a stand-up comedian take over a monarchy.
* The RuleOfIndex isn't "''The limit of the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief for a given trope is directly proportional to the number of indices it is in''".
* The RuleOfPool isn't [[BadGuysPlayPool that bad guys play it.]] Nor is it an actual rule in the game of pool, or a rule governing conduct at a swimming pool.
* RuleOfThree isn't about putting a PowerTrio or TerribleTrio in charge.
* RunningTheAsylum Isn't literally about being in charge of managing an asylum.
** Nor is it about the people who run TheAsylum.

* RushBoss is not that happens when [[MegaManClassic Dr. Wily]] reprograms him [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/IThoughtItMeant/A-C either]].
* A RussianReversal is not a ProWrestling move.
