Nakama was renamed True Companions. But it's not a philosophy, it's a type of group relationship. It's a circle of friends who are as close as family. Moving to discussion. Please see How to Write an Example.

  • Nakama: The bonds of the Cult hinge on this philosophy.

Given that the example was there for at least a full year+ before you removed it and was written when Nakama was still a shifting definition, you can probably act like less of a jerk and forget the link to How to Write an Example.

Also I fail to understand how it couldn't act as a philosophy, especially within the context of the book.

  • No one is acting like a jerk. Linking to How to Write an Example when dealing with a Zero-Context Example is customary when cleaning renamed tropes. Camacan was following standard TV Tropes procedure.
  • The context of the book is not given in the example. It is a Zero-Context Example and thus bad. The person doing the cleaning does not have omnipresent cultural knowledge, nor does any reader. The example needs to provide the information.

In fact, this page is rather poorly written. It's full of Zero Context Examples not explaining any of the tropes.
