Just For Fun: I Thought It Meant
"Inflammable means flammable?! What a country!"Some of the trope names can be a bit arbitrary, or named after certain series, or Just for Pun. Here's a list to make the titles more clear. Obviously, while this list can be very helpful, it's mostly Just for Fun. A Sister Page to I Thought That Was (confusing work titles), I Read That As (confusing what titles read as), Canonical List of Subtle Trope Distinctions (telling similar tropes apart), This Index Is Not an Example (trope namers that don't use the trope). Compare Square Peg Round Trope, You Keep Using That Word, The Big List of Booboos and Blunders, Lousy Alternate Titles (what names could come from definitions). Contrast Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
