The supertrope to these Xer and Yer snowclones is Tone Shift
, whose description makes it very explicit that these changes in tone do not need to apply only to remakes or adaptations. The same goes for the descriptions of the other snowclones; it's only the description for Hotter and Sexier
that gives the impression that this applies just to remakes.
