I'm new here, but I've deleted a couple of Expy examples, and it seems like a lot of them are too stupid to even move to Counterpart Comparison
. Things that one person claims to think just to shoehorn something in. As was mentioned, the same thing is true of shout outs.
Example: An animated dragon that was red (and had no other similarities) must obviously be an Expy of Jake Long: American Dragon. I don't think that is so much a Counterpart Comparison
as just silly entry pimping.
Can there be an option for just deleting all the bad examples without making them Counterpart Comparison
? I think the trope as written has some value, as can be seen by the off-wiki usage, and maybe the solution is just to combat the abuse.
