Is this a trope? I feel that "there are frogs in this work" is Not a Trope.

It's more about the connotations and implications of these animals.

But it is really generic. Unlike other animal tropes, such as Clucking Funny, Savage Wolves, Friendly, Playful Dolphin, Busy Beaver, or even Bewitched Amphibians, it doesn't specify what connotations frogs and toads have, just dumps a lot of traits of them together, allowing any work that has frogs or toads in it to be included.

Yeah, I feel like this could use a Trope Repair Shop trip.
