Just a Face and a Caption: Auto Revive get usage counts

 1 Trope Eater, Sat, 12th Jan '13 11:04:35 AM from the depths of Hell
That One Troper
It's just a Fairy in a Bottle from The Legend of Zelda. note 

I can't think of a better image to use on this page, but the one here looks like it would fit nicely on Bottle Fairy Fairy in a Bottle (probably better than the one already there).

Motion to pull here and put up on Fairy in a Bottle.

Fairy in a Bottle has already a good picture. Bottle Fairy is a disambig.

Agree with both of you. The Auto-Revive pic doesn't illustrate the trope unless you're familiar with the Legend of Zelda, but Fairy in a Bottle already has a great pic and doesn't need a new one.

No, the other one.
I don't think it harms the page. Keep Until Better Image Suggested.

It is not at all obvious what that has to do with the trope.

^^ I think that "doesn't harm the page" bar is too low. "Doesn't help at all" is harm. It makes it look like we think in-jokes or opaque references are okay. There isn't a "no effect at all" rung on that ladder, that's not possible. It would take very, very little for it to add something and for me to agree that it's not hurting anything. But if it's not even a little bit good, it's bad. It's just an example above the example line. You absolutely must be familiar with Legend of Zelda for it to make sense, the idea of fairies doing auto-revive is unique to that series.

Agree with getting rid of it.

I'm fine with pulling it.

No, the other one.
[up][up]I disagree. On the other hand, I don't particularly care if it's pulled. I just don't see a convincing argument that it should be pulled.

I think "it doesn't help at all, not even a little bit" is a convincing argument, because that is harm.
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

"I disagree."

[down][down]That wasn't new, and the purpose of just quoting myself was to stop the pointless derail. Use a PM if you must know the details.

I say pull. It is a textbook Just a Face and a Caption:
  • Depicts an example of the trope with no visual context; aka contains zero information about the trope concept.
  • Requires familiarity with the source work to interpret its relation to the trope.

If it were a picture of the fairy in action (even as an Item Get) it might work, but as it stands it's JAFAAC.

"I think it's a convincing argument" is (previously not explicit) new information, "I disagree" is not :)

Link revives Sora with a bottle fairy. Needs author's permission.

Afraid the fairy isn't all that obvious.

It shows the exact opposite. The trope is "something that revives you automatically after death." That image has someone else using the item of revival, meaning it's actively misleading.

Apropos of nothing, I found this while searching and it's too gorgeous to leave out.

Here's the Stone Mirror from Fatal Frame.

I don't think the visuals there really add anything.

It's better in that it actually indicates what it does, so on that basis it's good enough for me, but something actually showing the trope would be better.

Honestly, I was hoping to find an image of a fairy actively reviving a dead Link in A Link to the Past, but GIS is showing me exactly 0 relevant images.

[up] If you're willing to settle for lower quality, we could probably screencap a Let's Play or something.

The visuals add that it's an item description in a video game.

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

Yeahh, the text just restates (somewhat complicately) the trope name. The fairy and videogame bits are in the image.
