Critical Snowclone Failure (NEW CROWNER): Tall Dark And Bishoujo get usage counts

 126 lu 127, Tue, 8th Jan '13 7:15:19 AM from the Capital of Light Relationship Status: Loves me...loves me not
Wow, this has a bunch of garbage tacked on. Short, Dark and Bishoujo, Tall, "insert hair-colour here" and Bishoujo...people are also interpreting the "dark" part to mean either hair or skin, despite the fact that the skin will usually be pale instead of dark. Rife with random misuse.

何も恐れる事わ無い

The good news is that most of the wicks are so bad/so contextless that we can just delete them and move on.

I came across some really good ones. "Definitely has the looks, but doesn't fit the personality". They even admit it's not an example.

Which just makes it easier to delete them.

Anyway, V and U done. Now 1014 wicks.

A and the Tall, Dark and Bishōjo wicks done apart from one that was in German. 964 wicks left.

Your Friendly Neighbourhood Swiss Troper took care of the German wick.

Do characters that fit this trope have to be popular or is that one of those "usually" cases?

I don't think it's required. It's common, but only in certain types of series.

Edit: Oh, and I finished the Bs.

Cs are taken care of.

Took care of the T wicks save for two ghosts.

Ok, well what are the requirements because I'm already running into zero context examples and shoehorning type examples?

D and E are done.

[up] You can remove those.

If you need requirements it's just dark haired (dark brown to black) and aloof (reserved and dignified). She's probably physically tall, composed, and feminine in a very mature way.

S done, ghost wicks aside. 481 wicks to go now.

P-R done, 381 to do now.

By the way, when this is done, can we move on to Shallow Love Interest, folks?

G and H down. We're under 150!

I-K, O-P done.

Three ghosts wicks left and the discussion probably still needs to be moved. Otherwise, we're done.

With the exception of some zero context examples for Aloof Dark-Haired Girl..... Seriously guys.

If this is done, I'll request lock 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: Tall Dark And Bishoujo

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.
