The TVTropes Trope Finder is where you can come to ask questions like "Do we have this one?" and "What's the trope about...?" Trying to rediscover a long lost show or other medium but need a little help? Head to You Know That Show and try your luck there. Want to propose a new trope? You should be over at You Know, That Thing Where.
2 Oct 6th, 2017 at 2:02AMIs there a trope for a sub/inversion of Don't Create a Martyr, where instead of refraining from killing an enemy or else his side will fight harder, an ally is sacrificed (to all appearances killed by the enemy) to make his side fight harder? Sometimes crosses over with Uriah Gambit if the killed person was an obstacle to the planner's ambition in some way.
