Ok lets talk options.
Keep the name and clean out all the aversions. Also finish cleaning up the write up and then writing it to show how it is used in fiction along with what not to put on the page. Rough Count 10-15 Examples left. If we look around enough we can probably find a few more mostly from action/war/historically related works. This is the simplest one and we don't have worry about a rename. The write up should include how a gun is a nearly instant and brutal weapon of death
The problem is what makes dieing instantly via a bullet special? If it is just instant death we already have a trope for that. There will still be more aversions then played straight. It should have something to do with guns and being shot specifically. Ie what makes dieing instantly by a bullet meaningful rather then mundane occurence? Might work better as as sub-Trope of Insta Kill
Rename and expand to be a more broad with death by gunshot. This makes the trope more broad and applicable to a larger variety of fictional situations. This is more in line with the original write up. The write up will still need further clean up and demonstration of trope usage in fiction. Most of examples are kept and we lose the problem with constantly seeing Averted pop up on the page. Specifically this would include the lingerng deaths and anything they might entail. The write up should include how a gun is a nearly instant and brutal weapon of death but can also leave a victim not quite dead.
This is a bit more work, we have to rename, this trope is more likely to cross over or share properties with other tropes already on the wiki. We would need to spend some additional time going through other possibly related tropes to see how much cross over this gets. This one may work better as a related or sub-trope as well.
For both choices we need to clean up the write up and demonstrate how the trope is used in fiction in general. We need to note what does and does not go on to the page. Including related tropes or what tropes they are sub-tropes of. Both examples should focus on named or important characters. Mooks
and Red Shirts
dying easily is covered under Mook and Red Shirt Respectively. Examples will need to be cleaned up in general. After it is done here in TRS we could possibly send it to Image Picking to possibly find a suitable image.
What are your guys thoughts and options?
