Well, the current description of Subverted Trope
describes it as "playing bait and switch with a trope". So, yeah.
I think the problem is that Bait and Switch
is a very
broad trope with a lot
of sub-tropes. The trick is probably to make sure examples get filed under the correct Sub-Trope
, rather than the main page.
For example, the first paragraph seems to be describing a Bait-and-Switch Comment
specifically, and so isn't a good illustration of the broader Bait and Switch
Incidentally, it's occurred to me in the past that we could use a Bait And Switch Conversation
trope to apply to whole conversations, rather than single lines of dialogue
. Some of the current examples could be sub-filed under that.
