Redundant Rescue is an odd little trope. Very small for its notional scope, it appears on its face to be a duplicate of What Kept You?.

Having been around since at least January, to go by the edit history, it has a mere 14 work wicks and 3 inbounds. In short, it is not thriving and is probably a duplicate.

Now, I wouldn't be averse to merging What Kept You? with this one, since What Kept You? has a dialog title and could be a rename candidate on that basis. But as it is, I see no point in having a separate trope.
What Kept You? is also not thriving—only 4 inbounds. I think we could benefit if we merged them both under a new name.

I support a merge. Some of the examples are already on both pages as well.

I do like the name Redundant Rescue, though. It does describe the trope rather well.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

A wee bit more votes, please?

Calling crowner. Merge under Redundant Rescue.

Merged except for these Zero Context Examples:

Will try to get to the wicks ASAP. Didn't do much to the description, so if anyone thinks it needs to be different, feel free.

Okay, merge done. I'll wait a day to see if someone has any info on those zero context examples or any feedback, then close this up.

Guess there's nothing. 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.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
