I feel that The Funniest Joke in the World from Monty Python's Flying Circus must be added.

You can go ahead and do so yourself. :)

I don't get what's the deal with Anna Karkowska's violin playing or the words "The Game".

removed the following:

  • Rhapsody of Fire has seven of these in the tales their music tells. There are seven black books, written with the blood of slain angels, which contain methods with which to summon the evil god Kron back from the hell the good gods banished him to. Finding the last one, the greatest of them all which could end the world, was the subject of two of their CDs, The Dark Secret and Triumph or Agony. It is said that the first six were found and now are kept locked away in magic towers, protected by heaven itself (although that wouldn't necessarily be a hindrance for the dark powers that be).

I'm not an expert on the Enchanted Symphony but I don't recall anything about the books having any form of brown note quality to them, and I can't find any information otherwise. Also, even if there is, the example listed doesn't explain anything.

So, can I ask why quotes aren't allowed on this page?

Is there anything in the main entry explaining where the trope name came from? For the curious, it's named for a type of frequency that has been known to cause loss of control of the bowels, hence the name.

"The SCP Foundation website uses a "Langford-Berryman Memetic Kill Agent" to trigger a fatal neurally-induced heart attack into any "un-innoculated" personnel trying to view the SCP-001 entry. Try your luck here."

This achieves its BrownNote effect primarily as a CatScare, because of the way you have to scroll through the page before being suddenly confronted with it. And possibly because the red color is interpreted by our subconscious mind as "blood/violence/death", and the circular area in the top center could be interpreted as a face, in that split-second of surprise before we see it with full consciousness. Just looking at it on its own, it's rather pretty and not at all heart attack inducing, at least in this Troper's opinion.

What is this trope about? It seems to be half stimuli that can drive you insane/kill you and half stimuli so strong it destroys things. Which is it?

  • Merely learning the premise of The Human Centipede can leave you feeling unsettled for the rest of the day.

^ I have no idea what this is, but I'm betting it doesn't count as an example, does it?

While it is quite disturbing, it comes more under the tropes of BodyHorror and NauseaFuel than BrownNote, since it doesn't induce any particular reaction aside from terror and/or sickness, which are already covered by the previously mentioned tropes.

I removed the following bullet which had appeared after the Chamber of Secrets stuff:
There is indeed a (very minor) vampire character named Sanguini, who has a friend/companion-of-some-sort named Worple, a non-vampire wizard who has written a book called Blood Brothers: My Life Amongst the Vampires. But none of the rest of that stuff is mentioned in Sanguini's scene, at least not in the British or American editions of Half-Blood Prince. We're not told anything about the book's size or quality, and there certainly is no suggestion that the book is used to lure any vampire's victims. (One is still free to interpret it that way, if one wishes; there just doesn't seem to be any reason to.)
