Name has nothing to do with the trope: Reverse Blade Sword get usage counts

All right, that's it.

i have to express my immense shock and surprise that this trope is not about kenshin.

that said, i love Set Swords to Stun.

That's exactly why it's being renamed.

Do we even need a crowner?
No. Consensus is self-evident.

Bumpity.

If we're going to do Set Swords to Stun (it seems we are), we should have Sword Set To Stun as a redirect for using in a sentence.

Should we expand it to include non game examples?
I think that a show, say an animated show with a young audience, might have things that are explicitly said to be deadly blades but when they hit, don't cut, that would count. If they had deadly blade but never connected, or have stuff to make non-deadly swords then it is Inverse Law of Sharpness and Accuracy. Do you know what the first example on that page is?

I think the latter is far more likely and the former, on its own, I would say is Too Specific but if it is going to be lumped into something, have it lumped in Swords Set To Stun. If they just ignore, then it's this trope.

You may have noticed I've changed the page. I'm working on the wicks and I will be taking out things on the basis of what I have just said. I feel it's fair and it's in line with what we understand the trope to be.

I've set Reverse Blade Sword to redirect for now but suggest taking it to the cutlist. It turns up being used for just the former namer, which isn't an example, and makes it sound like something else when used elsewhere.

Yeah, the latest episode of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes has a person attack Iron Man and cut through his armor with claws and then attack somebody without armor and not leave any wounds. Which would that be?

If you see a hit, it sounds like a prime candidate for Set Swords to Stun.

I've seen Reverse Blade Sword used for what it says on the tin too many times for it to survive. The page had 30 wicks and so far 7 of them have been bad ones.

OK, done. I'm asking for a lock.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
