Rename Request (New Crowner 2.12): My Revenge Is Mercy get usage counts

This was requested at least once before, but apparently nothing worked out. The problem is that "My Revenge Is Mercy" does not give the image of what the trope is about. As noted in the discussion page of that trope, "My Revenge Is Mercy" sounds like either Cruel Mercy or If I Kill You, I Will Be Just Like You, rather than the mix of Graceful Loser and Death Equals Redemption which is what the trope is really about

I see the Awesomeness.
Agree, it's kind of floundering. Inbounds are bellow the wik count, never a good sign.
Was expecting a Cruel Mercy subtrope. Yeah, rename.

Piffy
[up]Ditto.

Also support a rename.

Perhaps we could call it "Villain's Dying Grace." Or "Heel Face Save". "I'm Saving You From Me", maybe? "Saving The Hero Equals Death"? Just throwing out some suggestions.
I need some bongo music.

Not "Saving the Hero Equals Death" - to quote the description, "they would have died anyway" so there's no real cause-effect relationship with saving the hero.

I like Villain's Dying Grace.

Ooh goody, some people like my ideas! You're right on that count, Cheyamfa, thank you for the correction. I like "Villain's Dying Grace" best too. Any other suggestions or comments from the crowd?

Villain's Dying Grace is good. The only possible issue is that it might get mistaken for something like Alas, Poor Villain.

By the way, why is Alas, Poor Villain an audience reaction trope anyway? Whether or not it works is irrelevant to the trope of 'the author makes a play for sympathy as the villain dies.'

Probably because we have Cry for the Devil, I assume.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
I'll put in another vote of support for Villain's Dying Grace

Belief or disbelief rests with you.

Calling and locking the crowner.
Love extends the boundaries of what people can accept, but don't depend on it.
Found an alterative titles crowner here and added Villain'sDyingGrace to it.
 
How come in the little crowner icon isn't showing up in the thread title? Is that a bug?

Reopening on request. Please finish the work decided on.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

[up]Oh, damn. I think I've renamed this prematurely.

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