I'm not going to criticize these kind of players. I've seen a lot of matches of Ultra Street Fighter IV, the classic Street Fighter II, Guilty Gear Xrd, several King Of Fighters, among other fighting games in internet and they sure play great, but they never change characters, and watching them using the same two or three chars for one hour or more is like a torture. Is it too hard to change characters? Seeing how good they are with the Top Tiers, I don't think they have problems using anyone else.

Whether it's a friendly match or a competitive match, they can do their best with any character if used correctly, if they don't change I can only think of two reasons: either they don't know how to play or are afraid of losing. To me, changing characters aports variety to the strategy, because you learn new techniques and helps you stay as unpredictable as possible. So, if we ask to these so called Super Pro why they don't change characters, which would be their answer: "Why bother changing, given I surely win with X or Y character?", they would be the ones demonstating that they don't know how to play other characters and play exclusively to win, and there's no honor doing that, this people generally are sore losers of arrogant "Stop Having Fun" Guys. Don't get me wrong, I admire their great playstyle, but those matches get boring and monotonous after a while, and as witness I'd like to see a little more variety.

I've never played Scribblenauts, but this entry doesn't sound like an example of this trope:

"For full credit in Scribblenauts, the player must complete each level three times with three sets of mutually exclusive items. However, this can be bypassed by entering a nonsense word plus the thing you want (eg "gxdfl jetpack")."

Isn't that just plain old' cheating at the game? Can someone who's familiar with Scribblenauts either explain how that's an example, or delete the entry?

In the Mario Kart entry: "Pretty everyone else plays as their Miis." What does this sentence mean?

Does anyone else think the TF 2 entry in this article is a bit of a mess? It's got a really subtle comp vs pub argument going, which is kinda distracting, and a lot of it is only tangentially connected to this Trope. I'm just not sure if it'd be better to scrap most of it or try to rewrite it all.

Ok screw it, I'm deleting most of it. You can re-add portions of it at your own risk.
