Ask the Tropers is the page you come to when you have a question burning in your brain and the support pages didn't help. If you're looking for a trope, head over to Trope Finder. If you want to propose a new trope, pitch it to the masses at You Know, That Thing Where
5 Nov 10th, 2017 at 11:11AMHi there! There's a trope called Kick the son of a bitch, and I wonder if could be "murder under mitigating circumstances" because you know the meaning of that trope, right? It is when a character kicks the dog to show how ruthless he/she is but it falls flat because the dog was a hateful jerkass that nobody liked him/her. I wonder if it has something in common with that criminal offense...
