Gentleman Troper!
[up] I count a lot more than two on the trope page. Besides, it has a French and Quebecois name, so it's obviously not just Japanese.
Special trousers. Very heroic.

So is Noblewoman's Laugh. We still translate the title, since again, we ain't all otaku around here.

[up] Hey, that one is in TRS too. Thanks for reminding me.
Calling someone a pedant is an automatic Insult Backfire. Real pedants will be flattered.
[up][up][up] I see Aliens and Tiny Toon Adventures. Tiny Toon Adventures seems debatable because of the thing with "in-betweened in Asia", so that makes one or two. What am I missing? The others look clearly Japanese or Japanese-inspired in origin. We've got a Japanese musician, an Animesque webcomic, an Animesque cartoon, a Humongous Mecha film inspired by Gundam, and three video games that were made in Japan.

No French examples. And I think the French version is a different trope, anyway, since it carries connotations of disbelief, which seems like not the same thing.

Rhymes with "Protracted."

Calling the crowner in favor of Eyelid Pull Taunt. Please do the swap.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

I've moved Red Eye and its wicks to Eyelid Pull Taunt, turned Red Eye into a disambiguation, created ImageLinks.Eyelid Pull Taunt and cutlisted ImageLinks.Red Eye and updated Renamed Tropes and the FAQ thread.

After the discussion move, we should be done here.

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: Red Eye

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