When I saw this while fixing up The Cat and the Canary to include information on the play, something struck me as wrong that the word "will" should be linked. There are plots about wills, but wills themselves aren't a trope. It's a straightforward case of People Sit In Chairs.
There are, however, many good tropes about wills and bequests, and we already have some of them:
Quick glance at the page and yeah, this is squeezing too many tropes into one place. It needs a split.
Also, Will is not an appropriate name. It's too ambiguous. And it shares a name with several works. The main Will page should be a disambig, and we can think of a new, more clever name for wherever this page ends up.
I'd be fine with an index. *brainstorming* Inheritance Tropes?
I like the idea of making this an index. Just make sure there aren't any aspects of the page that aren't covered by any existing tropes before we wipe out this one, so we can create new tropes to cover them.
There is now a single proposition crowner for this trope here. I took Troacctid's advice and added the disambiguation part so it was more clear that the Will page itself would not be where the new index would be located.
If I misinterpreted something there feel free to tell me though.

One of the reasons this needs to be a disambiguation is that while inheritance wills are popular in fiction, so is will power, particularly things like Heroic Willpower. Thus, we need a tag of some kind to let people know which one it is.
We need an index and a disambiguation. Disambig will be at the main Will page. Index location is undecided. Will And Inheritance Tropes has some support. I think just Inheritance Tropes is better because that includes wills, so the extra bit is redundant.
There are also several tropes on the current Will page that could be YKTTW'd. Presumably that's the majority of the work to be done here.
