Why is this videogame specific?!? (Alt Titles Crowner Sept 15): Saving The World get usage counts

Ok, Save The World Climax is now up to 33 examples and wicks, and Saving the World is up to 23 non-videogame examples. Is this enough?

At the YKTTW, Septimus said that description concerns should go here, so:

Is the "no one else in the world will assist them" element really required? Because that really isn't obvious from the name, and seems overly specific. If that's just a standard way it plays out, maybe it can be phrased to not sound like a requirement?
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Part of the problem is that nobody showed up to rewrite the description from the video game specific one, so I did it even though I am not an expert in description rewrites.

Anyway, apart from this description thing-o, do we still need this thread? Save The World Climax has now 37 wicks and only a few examples less. Saving the World has a decent amount of non-videogame examples.

Ok, I fixed up the description. Now, unless someone brings up another issue, I'll within some time request a lock here, since this thread slot is needed for other repairs as well.

Looks good to me. It really isn't that hard to write an above-average trope description. Start by saying what the trope is—rather than what it isn't, or what circumstances might lead to it, or throwing out a bunch of hypothetical examples and hoping people will figure out what part of them is the trope—and you're already going to be doing better than far-too-many trope descriptions. :)

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: Saving The World

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