I'm not all too happy with any of the names that have been suggested so far.

PrincessWhile I am a fan of Back to the Future myself... This trope probably does need a rename... How about... Timeline-Altering MacGuffin. It's a MacGuffin (even already listed as a subtrope) as it is interchangable and the focus of the plot, and what it specifically does is alter the timeline by its presence.

PrincessWould anyone mind if I added Timeline-Altering MacGuffin as a redirect now or should I wait until this vote is done in case it wins, which it looks likely to?

vigilantly taxonomishAye, calling with a consensus to rename to Timeline-Altering MacGuffin.

A Wizard boyI've moved Gray's Sports Almanac and all its wicks to Timeline-Altering MacGuffin, created a new laconic and Cut listed the old one. I've also updated Renamed Tropes, while Oreochan got the FAQ thread. After the discussion move, we should be done here.
