The problem with excluding examples that rely on Informed Ability is that the whole trope is itself an Informed Attribute. No being could ever fit this trope's description perfectly, as human writers logically should not be able to conceive of such a being in the first place.
I think we ought to include any example that's clearly intended by the writers to be this trope, as even if we think we're able to comprehend it perfectly our brains may just be simplifying it for our own sanity.
Informed Attribute: "A violation of Show, Don't Tell when fleshing out a fictional tangible."
So, no it is not. I just addressed that. There is an actual difference between "it was unnatural and clearly not of this world" and "things moved and changed and fluttered, and ears tingled to impulses which were not wholly sounds".
The second one is a quote from The Colour Out of Space.
Are we seriously having an argument about this, of all things? My point is that the first one just says 'it's impossible' while the second one describes it doing something impossible. Compare "Inside was absolutely nothing. Nothing after nothing came bursting out." or "It glared at me with things that were not eyes." or "In his home in R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu lies dreaming."
It's splitting hairs, though, and comes dangerously close to making the trope itself a subtle Take That! by insinuating that any story which doesn't use purple enough prose or show rather than tell can't qualify.
We need a definition that relies on what the thing is, not what writing style it uses.
I think the current trope should stay what it is, and the Theme Park Version of it should be a different trope.
If we just alter the description so that Eldritch Abomination is the 'theme park version' we run into the problem of what to call the non-theme-park-version. Leaving them both under the same title is going to make the example pages harder to keep under control.
I like Ekuran's idea. I think it's too late to stop the Trope Decay. The Theme Park Version of this trope has become too widely ingrained in people's minds. It's gotten to the point where Cthulhu himself seems to have decayed into the Theme Park Version of this trope.
I don't see how adding a new trope is going to help matters any. Pretty much every individual aspect of Eldritch Abomination already has its own trope. What exactly would the trope description be for Eldritch Icky Thing, and what would make it any different from all the tropes we already have?
That trope is too general, Eldritch Icky Thing is specific for Cosmic Horros Lite.
How about this: make both Eldritch Icky Thing trope and true Eldritch Abomination trope. Eldritch Abomination would be supertrope for both. That way thing could be more easy for tropers confused by this drastic change. And all wiki wicks can be still technically correct.
Because he know I'm going to go out in this plane and I'm going to remove one of His creations from His universe.
