Not Thriving: Mister Danger get usage counts

Darkness and Disgrace
With only 33 wicks and 2 inbounds for what seems like a common villain type. Frankly, I blame the terrible, ambiguous name for it. It's named for a character in a book we don't even have a page for, and frankly it sounds more like a trope about either action heroes or highly unlucky individuals.
Save a webcomic, read Commander Kitty! "You got your head all tangled up, but if I could only make you care..."
Hugo Chavez seems to think it's a pre-existing term...

anyone have ideas for a better name?

The Demon Slayer
Evil Imperialist, maybe?

I think the Venezuelan version of TV Tropes might be able to use this, if Mister Danger has enough Pop-Cultural Osmosis to be easy shorthand there. That said, this clearly isn't the Venezuelan version of TV Tropes. I agree with the rename.

Evil Imperialist seems like a good fit to me.

Well, it's unanimous. Are we okay with calling this now?
Special trousers. Very heroic.

Are there any other suggestions than Evil Imperialist? I certainly can't think of anything more fitting.

Are we gonna do anything here, or should it be shelved?

Evil Imperialist just sounds like a guy who wants to conquer the world to me. Arrogant Colonial Villain, maybe?

Ugh. Character named tropes, how I hate thee. I see a problem with the examples, too, in that they are largely zero context.

What is this, exactly? Villain whose goal is conquest of an "inferior" race or culture? Evil Imperialist or Evil Colonialist would be suitable titles, I guess.

Crowner hooked. Brainstorm time!

Bumping for a few more votes. If you're looking to free up some space in the TRS, start fleshing out some of the examples on the page—we should be able to get this out and make space pretty quickly once that is done.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Calling for Evil Colonialist. Proceed with the rename.

Moved wicks, page and subpage, and made the notes on Renamed Tropes, the FAQ thread and the discussion page.

The discussion page is moved to Evil Colonialist. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Mister Danger

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
