Fake Fight Fanservice? Faux Fight Fanservice? Fanservice Sparring?

Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
The link above was wrong. Try this one
That link didn't work because crowners need to be created with at least some content beyond the default content.
...Why is this crowner empty?
Because nobody filled it. Filling up a crowner you've been asked to hook isn't one of a moderator's enumerated duties.
Bumping for votes.
Bumping for votes yet again.
Maybe we need a runoff crowner there.
I think this wiki's love affair with the word 'faux' is getting rather egregious
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Without "faux," it'll be really hard to distinguish this from Cat Fight.
This is Rain. Isn't she pretty? :)
Bump for votes.
Amy - ...what is the difference between this and Cat Fight? They're both physical brawls played for titillation. I don't think the combatants' opinions affect that portrayal - the audience isn't expected to take the conflict seriously even if the characters do. (And if the audience is expected to take the conflict seriously, it stops being a Cat Fight, often because it passes the point where beauty is tarnished).
A Cat Fight is a fight. Two people physically attacking each other and each trying to win. This isn't.
In what way is it not?
This one is related to Moe, which involves young people. A friendly tackle is an example.
^^ This is for pillow fights and similar scenes. A pillow fight isn't an actual fight. No one's trying to hurt each other or beat the other (if they were, they'd use literally anything other than pillows, such as their bare hands). This is for playfighting. That's why "sparring" is misleading.

What I was saying, though, is that I don't think that matters. Whether the girls involved are genuinely trying to kill each other or just having fun, they're still engaging in physical competition, and the audience is expected to be titillated and to not take it seriously. The only difference I can think of is that if the combatants are serious and the audience isn't, unfortunate implications ensue, and I don't think that's sufficient to make them distinct tropes.
They also have a similar number and ratio of supports and opposes. I'm not sure if it will do any good, but go ahead.
