Exaggerated Trope vs. Up To Eleven:

What's the difference?

According to the description and Laconic for Exaggerated Trope, an Exaggerated Trope is a trope turned Up to Eleven. Why don't we just say "Up to Eleven"?
Rhymes with "Protracted."

I think Exaggerated Trope is Up to Eleven applied to tropes, while Up to Eleven itself can be applied to anything. There does seem to be a lot of redundancy though since most people use the term Up to Eleven when describing an Exaggerated Trope instead of potholing to Exaggerated Trope on work pages. But I don't think it's too big of a problem, though, since Exaggerated Trope is still a useful page for Playing With Wiki.

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
