- Check Locked Pages and Permanent Red Link Club first. They can provide guidance on what are good and bad requests.
- Include working links in your request to the page(s) in question.
- Pages cut a while ago were automatically locked. Before asking for an unlock, make sure that the article you want to create is in the proper Namespace, has gone through YKTTW if it's a trope, and otherwise fulfills our guidelines for Creating New Pages.
- If asking for edits, state your changes exactly as they should appear on the page, including proper Example Indentation, namespacing, and pothole and quote formatting. And make sure that what you want to add is actually a valid example.
- We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
- Main redirects are no longer being created for namespaced work pages. Don't ask for one.
- Some locked pages have ongoing cleanup threads, like Complete Monster (Thread), Five-Man Band (Thread) and any locked Trope Pantheon page (Thread). Other than purely technical requests, edits to these pages ought to be discussed in these threads first.
- Work pages made in the wrong namespace, pages banned under The Content Policy and the 5P Circuit and subpages that are disallowed (like Headscratchers pages for tropes) are valid reasons for requesting page locks.

- Layered Metropolis: Midgar. In all sectors (numbered 0-8), an upper plate separates the ground-level slums from the other districts. This plate also blocks sunlight (what little there is of it) from trickling down into the slums. Agents from Shinra Inc. activate a support structure's Self-Destruct Mechanism between both layers of Sector 7, causing a section of the plate to come loose and crush everyone beneath before sending an earthquake relief force on the plate. Ironically, Reeve later moves the entire population of Midgar into the slums to protect them from METEOR.
- An additional secret level, only known as Deepground, is located below both Midgar and the Slums, only accessible via the Sector 0 reactor. (Dirge of Cerberus)
- The military port city of Junon also has a small village under it, near the elevator to the city proper.
- Narrow Parody: The movies "parodied" are often only one or two years old. For example, Disaster Movie had parodies of Juno, Hannah Montana, Iron Man, Sex and the City, The Incredible Hulk, Kung Fu Panda, Hellboy, The Dark Knight, Hancock, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Superbad, High School Musical, The Simpsons Movie, The Love Guru, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Enchanted, Wanted, Beowulf, Night at the Museum, Jumper, and 10,000 BC. None of these movie were older than a year at the time, and many were in fact released after Disaster Movie hit theaters.
what goes up, must come down
- The Diablo series is home to quite a few monsters, and we're not just talking about the demons here (though the Great Evils and their minions definitely qualify).
- Archbishop Lazarus, who played an integral role in King Leoric's descent into madness and eventual transformation into the Skeleton King, as well as manipulating him into torturing and executing many innocents in the guise of "protecting his kingdom" (up to and including his own queen), feeding Tristram's villagers and the odd adventurer to the demonic Butcher in the first game, and having Albrecht, one of Leoric's two sons, made a vessel for Diablo himself.
- Maghda and her Dark Coven from Diablo III. In addition to their service to the evil Belial, which involves plenty of Human Sacrifice, they are very fond of Cold-Blooded Torture through magical and other means, and use it for many of their sorcerous rituals, such as the illusion over the Black Canyon Bridge in Act II. They are directly responsible for the massacre of Alcarnus in Act II (including one hair-raising report from a refugee about people there being flayed alive) as well as the near-destruction of the town of Wortham, and the murder of Deckard Cain and the torture of the now-human Tyrael.
- The Inquisitors of the Templar Order, who were responsible for forcibly recruiting Kormac into the Order, piling false sins upon him, and torturing him into Laser-Guided Amnesia so that he would have Undying Loyalty toward the order in general.
- Zoltun Kulle. This is a man who attempted to usurp his Horadric brethren by using the Black Soulstone to control the Great Evils, even murdering and dismembering his own wife just to fuel his twisted experiments with the Soulstone. Is it any wonder the Horadrim went to such extremes to keep him down?
- One of the achievements related to him is even called "Murderer. Torturer. Monster.", which is pretty damn accurate.
- But the worst monster of all besides the Great Evils has got to be Adria, who pledged herself to Diablo's service since first meeting Aidan in his Dark Wanderer guise, and had Leah with him for the sole purpose of using her as the vessel for Diablo's resurrection as the Prime Evil by means of the aforementioned Black Soulstone, which she successfully manipulates the heroes into finding and trapping the last two Lords of Hell into, in accordance to Diablo's grand plan. Adria's betrayal is the cruelest and most despicable one of the entire series, which not only kills poor Leah, but is directly responsible for allowing Diablo to kill a whole lot of people in Bastion's Keep and run roughshod all over the High Heavens in Act IV. The worst part is that this betrayal is the very last you see of Adria before she leaves through a portal to await being "called upon again" by the resurrected Diablo, and you don't even get to kill her in-game, which makes her a Karma Houdini.
