Square Peg Round Trope is when you try to shoehorn an example into a trope it doesn't fit — the trope is just wrong, doesn't match the situation, etc..

Tropes Are Flexible is because whilst sometimes tropes don't fit, they still can be Played for Drama, Exaggerated, and just generally aren't rigid. For example, Trail of Bread Crumbs can involve blood drips rather than breadcrumbs — it's the same principle.
