Given that we aren't seeking new examples, it doesn't make any difference.
Alright, I've drafted a proposed definition here. I used that triangle since it's the only effective way to display the "comparative" nature of the description I propose.

EDIT: Added my proposal to the crowner.

But if that doesn't work and we still can't agree on it

For the sake of clarity, can we please drop that page image, or at least alter it to be more accurate? I don't like the idea of using strength and toughness as synonyms for offense and defense which have a much broader definition. We should be consistently using the same terminology throughout the trope.

[up]Images are an Image Picking job. And the crowner's not over yet.
[up][up]Done. The page image will be dropped until further notice.

Is the ratio of the crowner good enough to call?

Alright, the ratio is unambiguously good enough to call. I'm hollering to call again.

Calling the crowner, but the new description needs work.

Rather than starting out with a paragraph listing all of the the things that the Lightning Bruiser is not, it would be clearer to start with a description of a Lightning Bruiser. Then jump into the comparisons.

The description is heavily weighted toward gaming but there are examples from other media. It would help if we could make the description less media specific.

We never go any where without our swords and boas.
How is it now?

Also, I'll need help taking out the bad examples.

Redrafted the description.[1]

[up]Looks good: I'll instate the new description.

EDIT: The new description is in place. I won't have time to get down every bad example, so I'll still need help.

I'm just thinking of resetting the page. The vast majority of examples don't even state give the new in-universe part of this trope.

I think a reset is a bit extreme. The in-universe phrase is intended to guide people away from adding bad examples, that doesn't mean we erase the board and start all over.

[up]Alright then.

I'll focus on the examples page itself (it's nearing the deadly 500000 in characters, so that will help greatly).

Perhaps we need Special Efforts to check up on wicks.

I changed the "attack" and "defense" references to "strength" and "toughness". We need to be consistent with our terminology. Other than that, the description looks good.

It looks like we need Special Efforts to clean this up. The page is just too big for me to handle alone, and I am unable to fix most of the examples to make it conform to the definition we hammered out. The most I can do is just mesh all of the examples together.

If an example doesn't seem to fit the new definition, just pull it to the discussion page.
[up]I'd like to do that, but from look at the whole page, the vast majority of examples don't conform to the new description. And I can't fix most of them because I've never seen most of the works the examples are in.

I would use the discussion page regardless - collecting opinions that rely on knowledge of the show for a whole lot of examples is extremely difficult. That's just my take though.
Pretty sure the whole Hard-Hitting Speedsters section can be cut completely. So there's a start.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

I cleaned up a bunch of third level bullets.

[up][up]Actually, all of those sections are best merged together.
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
[up]I did the above and now all of the soft-split sections are merged together (Notepad with word wrap turned off made this go a lot quicker and easier).

I deleted a lot of examples. I plan to do some more later.

Also, can someone work on cleaning up the wicks?

I would like to note that someone created Stronger Than They Look in late Novemeber without consulting the YKTTW draft at all. Just because said draft had gone dormant for three months is no excuse for someone to unilaterally create an article on their own, especially when they didn't even bother using the draft's material, right?

What would be the best way to fix the page?
