Pulled this. In the first place because you should never list two tropes for the same example. Plus I am not sure if either of these tropes fits: Lleu trusted his wife and had no reason to suspect her of wanting to harm him, so he is not being obviously dumb. Maybe he thought it was fun.

=Evangeline Walton and appropriate sources= Reading through the page, I'm noticing that some tropers are using Evangeline Walton's 1970s "Mabinogion Tetralogy" as a reference point. Please be aware that Walton completely rewrote the original 6th century prose legend as a scifi/fantasy series, adding and inventing many elements that are not in the original, such as certain character motivations and gender politics. This page is about the medieval epic, please keep your refences to that text. A good translation to use is Sioned Davies's 2007 edition, published by Oxford University Press.
