- The Couch isn't couches, about more fictional living rooms than real living rooms having them. It's the couch in a sitcom that allows all the main characters to sit, facing the camera, for their conversations. Yeah, people literally sitting on chairs, but done in a specific manner for a storytelling purpose.
- Cool Chair is a little broad and not our best page, but its about chairs that are fancy or enhanced or slick - each is significant on its own, independent of any pattern; the trope is not Chairs Are Common.
- Kotatsus are definitely not a trope, no matter how common they are, but the Kotatsu page lists two tropes associated with them.
- Pimped-Out Dress has meaning in that it's pimped - it's elaborate, its glamorous, it cost a bundle. The trope is not Dresses Are Common, or even Attractive Dress.
- Pimped-Out Cape as some clear problems, but at least each cape is apparently notable on its own. We don't have a Blue Cape page.
- Red Eye is not about red eyes, which is not a trope without attached significance, but about a gesture one character uses to offend an opponent.
- Airplane Arms... yeah, we have some bad pages. We should clean it up. But once we do, we're left with a stance characters adopt to express happiness and feeling of victory and freedom - which is significant.

I don't think "list all examples of X" are tropes. That's actually the main thing we're fighting in the Everythings Better With X cleanup thread. E.g., people were using Everythings Rascally With Raccoons as a page to "list all examples of raccoons in fiction". We renamed it to Rascally Raccoon, and now it only lists raccoons who are rogues or mischief-makers, which is a trope (a stereotype, to be exact). Yeah, raccoons are common in fiction, and many authors use raccoons. But "list all raccoons" is not a trope. The same with "list all redheads with green eyes".
