In my opinion Harry Potter does use this trope. It doesn't require universal evil, just that the reptilian motif indicates "evil is probably present." The Playing With
page's been updated with the redefinition, so it should be a helpful guide if you're unsure of something.
Also, Snakes Are Evil
is a redirct to Reptiles Are Abhorrent
Once I get done with the housework I should be doing, I'll try to start on those characters/ wicks.
EDIT: I've gone through the Characters/ entries and most of Star Trek, and put in a request for the Bible main and characters pages.
As to your question about moving to Special Efforts, currently that isn't done with wick cleanups. I wish they'd be handled differently, but currently they're done in the individual TRS threads like this.
