Trope Description Improvement Drive:

There's a lot more problems with Animalistic Abomination than its description. Zero Context Examples, wrong Example Indentation, "speaking of" Word Cruft...

Seeking for Light
@523 I think that needs a TRS. I think I maybe get what it's trying to be, but it's a mess.

@524 It's not just you.

You know, come to think of it, what does Robot Dog that merits being a trope beyond "a robotic dog"? I can't get that from the description, and there's no laconic.

[up][up] So it's a definite TRS job, then?

Anyone else think that the description for Hot Skitty-on-Wailord Action is too long, spends too much time explaining the Trope Namer, and is too videogame/mon specific?

Uh, you could've moved that to the Pokemon example in Video Games, you know. It's not mentioned there.

EDIT: Did that just now.

I'd make a TRS thing for Animalistic Abomination, but it's full at the moment. Overfilled, actually.
So can you tell me what exactly does freedom mean, if I'm not free to be as twisted as I wanna be?

If you have some time to spare, try getting one of these threads done.

It doesn't need a TRS. It needs some cleanup and fleshing out. There's nothing the TRS can do about it. The definition is pretty clear.

...aside from the ongoing confusion over what exactly constitutes an 'abomination'.

It's supposed to mean an Eldritch Abomination, just like in Humanoid Abomination.

The bijuu were classified as vanilla EA's to begin with, which is why I included them.

[up][up] I know; that's the root of the problem. Eldritch Abomination has been in and out of TRS multiple times because there are problems with it but no one can agree what. note  The last thread died without any consensus besides 'someone should probably clean it up'.

During the War has been noted as needing improvement badly.

I added a new description to the original thread for it. Tell me if it works for you.

Has returned.
Threatening Shark has a rather lengthy description, it seems.

Yet another spurious RL paragraph.

[up]Send it to Analysis, or just cut it out entirely?

Pick your choices. I think that it isn't really Analysis as much as a subversion.

 546 Ultimatum, Sun, 3rd Feb '13 12:15:08 PM from The Amiga forest Relationship Status: watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ
Has returned.
Elemental Powers is too long!

Also, I've zapped the real stuff from the shark trope.

Whew. That looks like somebody mangled several pages into one.

Elemental Powers is making my eye twitch. That's like 10 tropes put as one... We need to separate it into sub-tropes.

Elemental Powers is a pretty high level supertrope. What it is doing is listing and explaining the subtropes. I suppose we could simplify it and simply have a basic subtrope list, but in this case, I don't think that would improve things.

I got rid of the annoying bullets, at least.
