[[WMG: The trees were affected by the [[Literature/TheColourOutOfSpace the Color Out of Space]] ]]
[[WMG: The EpilepticTrees entry ''is'' an Epileptic Tree.]]

[[WMG: The Trees dont have epilepsy. They have cancer. ]]

[[WMG: The original epileptic trees really were epileptic trees that just happened to be caught on film.]]
The producers of Series/{{Lost}} didn't realize until thy aired it.

[[WMG: All trees are epileptic.]]
The wind is caused by the trees shaking, not the other way around.
* Or the wind scares the trees, causing them to go into siezures.
* The wind is caused by [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes trees sneezing]].

[[WMG: There is no epileptic trees entry.]]
It's all a mass hallucination that occurs during the redirect from EpilepticTrees to WildMassGuessing.
* No, it's caused by Instrumentality.
** You're both wrong. It's the Illuminati.

[[WMG: The epileptic trees entry is AllJustADream.]]
Wakey wakey!
* [[Series/MyNameIsEarl Hands off snakey?]]
** Yes. Also, eggs and bakey.

[[WMG: Trees only develop epilepsy when a [[Series/DoctorWho Time Lord]] is involved.]]
Come on, could you have resisted it?
* {{Jossed}}, [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]] [[AWizardDidIt did it]].
** Could it be that they're [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji's]] [[AssimilationPlot hallucinations]]?
** [[ProfessionalWrestling Mick Foley]] also helped out.
*** You're all wrong, it's [[Series/KamenRiderDecade Decade's fault]]
** No, it all ties into [[Anime/PrincessTutu Drosselmeyer's]] plan for the ultimate tragedy.

[[WMG: EpilepticTrees (and indeed, most of the rest of TVTropes) is a plot by [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Dr. Doofenshmirtz]] to distract us.]]
* So that he can take over the ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA!!!
** So he wants to be Emperor of Connecticut?
*** Emperor Norton is going to be ''so'' upset.
*** He calls it THE DISTRACTINATOR!!!
** Wouldn't they be called Epileptic-Tree-O-Nator and TV-Tropes-o-nator respectively?
*** Nah, not enough Exactly What It Says On The Tin.
*** But then again...
*** Isn't this fun?
*** I want to know something.

[[WMG: EpilepticTrees are actually [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Sudowodo]]]]
Alternately, the Sudowodo are also epileptic.
* The sudowoodo is rabid. It shakes when you pour the watering can on it because of "the hydrophobia", and it can't die because it is Rock type instead of an animal.

[[WMG: The EpilepticTrees will cause Instrumentality, so [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Joshua Kiryuu]] won't erase Shibuya.]]
Because it makes about as much sense as everything else here. XP

[[WMG: There are precisely [[TroperTales/ArcNumber 127]] EpilepticTrees.]]
* Also, [[TroperTales/MindScrew dreams are real]], and reality is just one big dream.
** Which is fine, seeing as everyone died a long time ago.

[[WMG: Epiliptic Trees run on [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Spiral Power]]]]

[[WMG: Epileptic Trees are a glitch in Film/TheMatrix]]

[[WMG: Epileptic Trees are attention seeking and only move when someone looks.]]

[[WMG: Epilectic Trees are love.]]
Baby don't hurt me. Don't hurt me. No more.

[[WMG: We are the Epilectic Trees.]]
It only makes sense. How could we know so much about them if we weren't actually them without knowing it? Epilectic Trees aren't out to take over the world... They already did.
[[WMG: When a tree has an Epileptic fit, they are budding [[VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy giant cherries]].]]
And they feed on pixelated blood. If you see a tree shake, jump for your life and start looking for save points.
[[WMG: The trees aren't epileptic, they're just cold.]]
