Mysterious Organization (with or without an X) seems much too broad to me. It makes me think of "ambiguously CIA" or MIBs or the "we're from the government, we're here to help" goon squad that shows up and disappears all the evidence.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Good hunter, your presence somehow soothes.
How about just dropping the "generic" part from the current name?

I apologize for being late to this thread, but there is now a single proposition rename crowner for this trope here.
Generic Evil Organization Squad found in: 37 articles, excluding discussions.

Since January 1, 2011 this article has brought 41 people to the wiki from non-search engine links.

How about Mysterious Evil Organization? Or Mysterious Evil Squad. That way it sounds less 'CIA here to help' and more like something in assoication with the Omniscient Council of Vagueness

This needs a few more votes.

This trope also has a lot of Zero Content Examples. I think it won't hurt to change the name, but that's not all it needs. It's a trope that should cover a lot of villain groups that don't belong on Quirky Miniboss Squad. It could do with more than a cursory mention on that page, and a more clear distinction.
We're not just men of science, we're men of TROPE!

It could. There is more than just the name wrong here, I agree.

Calling crowner in favor of a rename.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Bumping for more votes so that this can be concluded.

I moved the article and wicks, added notes to both stickied thread, Renamed Tropes and the discussion page. Hollering for a lock.

Locking per request.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Generic Evil Organization Squad

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
