I'm not actually sure which part of this is broken.: Stupicide get usage counts

Cosine!
All I know is that it's been around longer than the current discussion system, but it only has 13 wicks and 34 inbounds.

There seems to be a valid trope in here, and the examples seem to fit, but the name and description are both pretty bad in that they spend more time going on about how terrible this trope is than actually explaining it. It needs a rename and rewrite at the very least.

How is this different from Too Dumb to Live? I'm not seeing it.

Doesn't seem to be any difference at all. And some of the examples don't even fit the already nebulous description. The True Lies one admits right in the same bulletpoint that the dead mooks had no time to react, and the Justice League one, from what I can tell, is something else altogether.

Considering we have already have enough misuse on Too Dumb to Live as is, I propose a cut for this page.
I wouldn't be posting at this forum if I didn't think it a necessary step.
We already have this trope. It's called Villain Ball.

I see the Awesomeness.
Support cut. Identical to Too Dumb to Live.
It's not quite the same as Too Dumb to Live, but it does seem to be a very narrow subtrope.

There is now a page action crowner on this subject here.

Feel free to add options as you wish. I am a bit concerned that it might be against protocol to have two cut choices, but I think it makes sense given the situation. I guess merge may make more sense than cut though so I can edit that in if anyone thinks that would make those options clearer to other people.

There's nothing wrong with having two or more different options that both include "cut" as part of the action to be taken. You're doing good.
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!
There seem to be a consensus to move the examples to Villain Ball and cut this trope. Any objections?

Sounds good to me - let's wrap it up.

Crowner's locked; examples need to be moved and wicks corrected, then cutlist Stupicide.

Hmm, Suzaku Kururugi, Anti-Villain or Anti-Hero?

I don't watch Code Geass, but I know the fandom goes back and forth on that question... I'd actually mention both and that YMMV as to which camp he actually falls into.

Well w/e, all of the examples, except Suzaku are now in Villain Ball. We can cut this

Upon further review of the Suzaku entry in question, it looks Square Peg Round Trope anyhow, so let it die with the page. I think a cut and lock is in order.

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

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
