Non Indicative Name: Other
    open/close all folders 

    Magazines 
  • Heavy Metal magazine has nothing to do with the music genre of heavy metal music. It's an anthology of adult themed comics, many of them fantasy and science fiction. It's original French name is Metal Hurlant and was co-founded by the artist Moebius. The movie adaptation attempted to incorporate some examples of the music genre into the background music but the film score was still clearly dominated by Elmer Bernstein. And even when rock was incorporated, the majority chosen for whatever reason, definitely non-metal acts like Journey, Grand Funk Railroad, Stevie Nicks, Cheap Trick, and Devo.
  • You would think that a magazine named Garden & Gun would be perfect for that firearms enthusiasts with a nurturing side, but it's really about Southern fine dining and high culture.

    Manhwa 
  • Orange Marmalade is about a vampire, Ma-ri, dealing with humans at her school (mostly a boy with very tasty blood who has a huge crush on her) on the backdrop of vampires being allowed to live within society and lots of Fantastic Racism. No marmalade at all.
    • In an FAQ, when asked what orange marmalade was (in regards to the story), the author simply explained how one made orange marmalade.

    Meta \ Hypocritical Humour 
  • This very wiki is neither about television nor tropes. At least, not what your literature professor would think of first when he heard the word. The German version is called 'Media Tropes'. The French version is still TV.
  • The Mexican Standoff trope wasn't coined in Mexico, but in Australia. Read the article for more information.
  • Quite a few examples in Nonindicative Name are indeed indicative, just not literal.
  • Most of the tropes in Always Female and Always Male aren't always that way. See Gender-Inverted Trope.
  • Where No Parody Has Gone Before, as befitting a Stock Parody, features parodies that resemble each other. (The page is named after the ending of the Star Trek opening monologue.)
