I just added Phileas Fogg (from Around the World in Eighty Days) to the Literature folder. Then I noticed the link to Clock King and saw that Fogg is already listed there as an example. My first impulse is to delete my own example from this trope, but I'm not sure that's the right thing to do. I confess that I don't really understand the distinction between Creature of Habit and Clock King. Can someone enlighten me?

And now I've stumbled across Schedule Fanatic, which seems to be yet another name for the same trope. Or am I overlooking another subtle difference?

Clock King is for cases where it's almost a superpower. about the difference between the other tropes, I don't know... From the title only, it sounds like the Creature of Habit is more relaxed about it, but the Schedule Fanatic is driven.

You may suggest to merge them in the TRS, if we can't find a difference.

Bilbo Baggins? isn't he an almost perfect example? eats his many meals and drinks his many teas at the same time before being whisked off by gandalf, only to return to the shire and find it boring?
