Three games and can't fully use sword
Also, are we going to make this one in-universe only?

Everyone seems to feel it's not an audience reaction in the first place, so there's no need to make it "in-universe".
It's been up for four days. 16-0. Looks pretty ready to call to me.

Let's holler to call it, then.

Crowner closed.
Page is no longer YMMV tagged. Do we need to move it off of YMMV pages? If so, it'll probably need some cleanup for just when people feel bad for the villain.

We'll in fact need to remove it from YMMV tabs.

Should we move this to Special Efforts now that it's just a wick cleaning?

[up]Nope, that just encourages people to ignore the problem.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Ok, I've started the back-to-main YMMV move. That said, I am also removing or retroping examples that are just Zero Context or clearly an editor's opinion.

Finished A and B and C.

I did a bunch of random works yesterday, generally the ones I was familiar with. I'm not sure how well I can tackle series I'm not familiar with, but I guess if it lacks context I should just zap it anyway.

I'll get to more in a bit.

Did G and anything I'm familiar with.
Did U-Z though it had already mostly been taken care of already. Parts of T as well.

I will do D-F.

Done. Can someone take care of Doctor Who and Naruto?

Did also H-K.

Did L-N.

And now O-R.

Took that to the locked page edit request thread.

Did T down to The Bible.

Did T down to U, except for The Hunger Games - someone else will have to take it. Does anybody want to go double check the YMMV pages (I am too tired to do that), or should we close this up?

Nevermind, I did that too.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Single Proposition: Alas Poor Villain

Vote up for yes, down for no.
At issue:
It has been argued that the trope is not about viewer sympathy but rather the sendoff that the author gives the villain. This would move it from Audience Reaction to an objective trope if true.
