I propose an addendum to #197: "I will explain to my Legions of Terror that guns are ranged weapons and swords are not. Anyone who attempts to throw a sword at the hero or club him with a gun will be summarily executed."

This addendum will note that clubbing with a gun is acceptable if, AND ONLY IF, said ranged weapon is completely out of ammunition and/or reload magazines, and as such is only good as a bludgeoning tool at that point in time.

121. should end with "and immediately destroy it if possible"

The text of the main list isn't to be edited. Since this page is locked, I assume that extends to the Cellblocks as well.

Minor error in rule 110. A space was added in "Evil Plan" link making the sentence "I will not employ [[Evil Plan devious schemes]] that involve." Have a nice day.

It's been taken care of. Post in this thread if you have an edit request for a lockd page.

The Xanatos Gambit wick is incorrect. 'devious plans' should be potholed to Evil Plan

^And again, there is a FAQ thread.

Concerning #193, focusing on the damsel has potential pitfalls of its own. The last thing you may want is to instigate a Roaring Rampage of Revenge—or worse, a Moral Event Horizon crossing. Both could lead to an Eleventh Hour Superpower Evil Overlords are usually incapable of anticipating.

I think number 101 needs a caveat for cases in which The Power of Love exists...You know, Harry Potter?

I was going to say the same thing. At least kill the kid with mundane means, like knife/rock/wall.

I think you misunderstood the point of number 116. It should actually be an "I will" not an "I will not".

Exactly my thoughts. The hero's ship has the explosives, and thus he'll be killed once the ship has gotten far enough away from the fortress/death star that said evil lair is out of the blast range.

I want to add a pothole to the point "No one conquered the universe using the Beta version." We have the trope But Sir, It's Not Ready, now.
