The entry for Sinfest is way outdated. Just see how Fuchsia and Blue's characters have developed. (Blue should never be referred to as "Baby Blue" now.) Not to mention Tangerine, Absinthe, and Sapphire.

Proposed changes for the Sinfest entry: Sinfest: Initially played straight with the first two Devil Girls we see (Fuschia and Blue), but thanks to Character Development Fuschia may be getting redeemed through The Power of Love for bookworm Criminy and Blue is an all-business secretary for the Devil. Later Devil Girls subvert things further: Absinthe is a perky Minion with an F in Evil, Sapphire is a Punch Clock Villain who doesn't really like her job as an exotic dancer, and Tangerine is actively working for good in her Cloud Cuckoo Lander way.

Just wish to note some Pathfinder examples for adding:
- Pathfinder retains the traditional demonic Succubi, who are "formed from the souls of particularly lustful and rapacious evil mortals".
- Erinyes also appear on the devil's side, but have lost this angle, instead adhering to their mythological inspiration as pursuers of vengeance and bloody justice. The bestiary specifically notes that they lack the subtlety and patience to be seducers. The first "Book of the Damned" notes that they detest mortals and the closest they come to such intimacies is letting those beguiled by their beauty approach before attacking them.
- The divs have their own take on this with the Pairaka, who embodies "the corruptive nature of unbridled lust". As a result, they are not only beautiful and seductive fiends, but also Plague Masters, who infect those who succumb to their charms with diseases like the shakes and bubonic plague.
- The daemonic equivalent of the succubus, introduced in the third Book of the Damned sourcebook, is the Erodaemon, who embodies death by heartbreak. They approach mortals and insinuate themselves into their victim's life, and then bring their victim's life crashing down around them, until they are so overwhelmed by grief that they kill themselves. They break apart marriages, kill children or cause them to leave their families, destroy reputations, extinguish faith, curdle family ties, and bit by bit savor the slow disintegration of their victims’ emotional well-being and consequent physical deterioration.

A note for somebody with editing rights on this page: while certain beings in The Elder Scrolls Series are name "Seducers", there is nothing in-game that is this trope. They are made to look distracting, but they are not in any way implied to use sex as a force. Also the Dark Seducers are not an Expy of the Daedric Seducers, they are the same beings, only with different names. For more info, see the UESP Wiki http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Mazken I suggest to remove this example.

Could someone with the proper authorization add a link explaining "metasyntactic variable" to the Nethack example. The link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasyntactic_variable

"Like Morrigan in the image above..." I'm sorry, what picture was that again?

this page is locked and the reason isn't on the Locked Pages page.

Seriously, why is this page locked? Did someone get in a pissing match over the picture of Morrigan and Lilith? If it's because Lilith is a child (kindasorta), then just find a shot of Mo' by herself.

It's because this site has become a buttload less informal and in general is starting to develop a knee-jerk reaction to anything relating to sex.

Which is, to be fair, due to well-grounded fears of losing the advertising revenue that pays for server costs due to advertisers pulling out on account of perceived inappropriateness; if they see us as inapropriate, they'll pull no matter how little we care. We've already had a couple very close calls with it as it is. And if our current advertisers pull, we'll have no choice but to have wholly-pornographic advertising, which basically says "all non-pornographic content can stuff it".

I don't know about you guys, but something about the page image is very... unsettling... Perhaps we could find some more visually appealing? Of course, that's just my opinion.
