- 1) Just remove the offending examples and rename the trope for clarity. (Suggestion: Unintentional Downer Ending) Alternatively; we can tweak the trope to encompass any endings that is viewed as sadder than intended, then do the same.
- 2) Expand the trope to "an ending that can be viewed as either happy or sad depending on viewer perspective and/or Fridge Horror" and possibly rename it. (Suggestions: Subjective Ending or Ending Happiness Dissonance).
- 3) Split the trope into two tropes. One corresponding with solution #2 and a subtrope corresponding with solution #1.
