I created the new page and quotes subpage. The old quotes page is a redirect for now. I also hollered for a discussion move.
The description still needs to be rewritten. Is anyone planning on making a YKTTW for Saving the World as a trope, or should that just become a redirect (once the discussion's moved)?
When moving wicks, any valid non-game examples should be cross-wicked so the page doesn't look videogame-only.

Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
Whatever the story started out as, it winds up with a save the world plot. This is a common variant of The Heroes Journey as it gives a great deal of gravitas to the story. It could also be a result of constantly escalating threats. Ongoing series tend to use The World Is Always Ending.
Sorry, not feeling very wordy right now.
Alternative Titles: Saving The World

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.
Saving The World is getting a Trope Transplant to a new name so that the current name can be used for plots about...saving the world. The current trope is for when a story that starts with a mundane conflict escalates to saving the world by the end of the story. What would be the best name for this trope?
