Duplicate Image: Cry For The Devil get usage counts

With Satan.

It doesn't illustrate, either. It just shows a picture of Satan, no crying.

I say pull it from Cry for the Devil; not only is it too dark, it doesn't really do a good job of demonstrating the trope.

Hmm, I can't claim to like the picture or think it illustrates the trope very well, but his body language suggests depression, which at least hints at the trope, so I'm leaning towards saying Keep Till Better Suggestion. But I'm very open to better suggestions.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
So you're proposing replacing the Satan image instead?

Don't think anyone proposed that.

Well, if we're KUBIIS for this page, doesn't that mean we should change the other pic? We don't like having dupes, do we?

Certainly the Satan page has a lot more potential images out there than this one does. So yes, unless a better suggestion for this page is made, I think I'd prefer changing Satan instead. That said, this image isn't that good for this page, and I'm more than happy to consider alternatives if someone has one to offer.

Personally, I'd much prefer to change Cry for the Devil if we can...I think the pic/caption combo on Satan is rather elegant.

He kind of looks more moody than depressed, and yes, I do agree, the picture is too dark. I'm all in for replacing it.

Yeah, at best the picture seems to be trying for a pun on the article title more than actually having anything to do with the actual trope. Maybe a drawing of Hitler playing in the yard as a kid or something.

The clock's up; there's some consensus that the pic works better on Satan than Cry for the Devil, so it's pulled from that page and the page is tagged. 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.
