Is anyone else experiencing issues with the wikiword Bishonen Line coming up as Bish&#3 33;nen Line, i.e. that it looks fine when using the edit form but becomes garbled when the page or preview thereof is generated?

Is it a problem with Tv Tropes' code or is it just on my end?

It's not just you.....

I'd say it's a problem with the Custom Title. I'll Make a post on Ask The Tropers.

I've seen that as well. It's rather annoying.

This seems like shoehorning. Bill Gates isn't a monster gravitating to human form as his power reaches its peak. I think.

  • Some humans, particularly the ones you considered socially awkward. With enough time, determination and serious introspect this holds some merit.

This seems like shoehorning: real world supercars aren't monsters villains gravitating to human form as their power reaches its peak.

  • Supercars. As cars move up in speed, power, and handling, they become more bizarre-looking with overdesigned, sculpted bodies, and bringing them to the edge of their power makes them feel like they're going to shake themselves apart. At the very very top of the charts, however, are cars like the Bugatti Veyron - they look like very elegantly designed normal cars, and handle just as smoothly as a luxury car.

This seems like shoehorning: real world insects aren't monsters gravitating to human form as their power reaches its peak.
  • Insects that undergo complete metamorphosis. They go from a worm-like creature, to an oval shell (inside which, in some cases, they are basically goo), to a form that is recognizably an insect (and quite a bit more humanoid, having legs and plainly visible eyes).

This seems like shoehorning — this is a character trope, not a prison environment trope.

  • One Piece
    • Strange variation — not with people, but with prison cells. Impel Down prison has prison levels that get worse farther down. The earlier levels are full of monsters, getting larger the further you descend. The biggest monsters spend most of their time on the fourth level. The monsters shrink back down in the following levels, and the last level, where the most dangerous prisoners are, is simply a series of normal jail cells, even less remarkable than level one. Of course, this could be explained by that level including political prisoners, death row inmates, and people that are deemed too important to die in jail.

This seems to be a non-example: Jafar's return to human form is explicitly temporary, and for the purposes of negotiation, not a function of his growing power.

I think the Majin Buu part of Dragon Ball needs a little cleanup.

You Could Always Edit It Yourself — after getting a handle. :D
