Just like the "Everything's X with Y" set of tropes, the "Instant X just add Y" tropes are about how a work is simply better
if it contains some Y, in this case ninja. In practice, Instant Awesome, Just Add Ninja
has become a set of tropes commonly associated with ninja, as well as a list of works that focus on ninj'ing, or that contain a ninja somewhere.
However, we also have the straightforward page Ninja
, which is exactly the same thing
, as well as an index of Ninja Tropes
which covers the trope list once more. This strikes me as clear duplication: Instant Awesome, Just Add Ninja
is simply the same page as, and has no other purpose than, Ninja
If you see a bit of deja vu here, well, we just had the exact same discussion about this trope's Pirate equivalent. In this case, IAJAN does have 619 wicks / 494 inbounds, its counterpart Ninja
has 1671 wicks / 479 inbounds. Nevertheless I suggest merging the pages, because there's no purpose to having both; and of course a merge would preserve the inbounds. I think the name Ninja
which is the clearest and most concise of the two.
Special trousers. Very heroic.
