This example looks like shoehorning:
- * Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann touches on this only briefly, and it's even slightly subverted. Compare Lazengann with Gurren Lagann and you'll notice the former has a single horn (hence Kabutomushi) and the latter has two (hence Kuwagatamushi). It's subverted in that Gurren Lagann's "horns" are really the circlet of what used to be Viral's helmet, which was fragmented... before Kamina stole it. This is most evident when Lazengann and Gurren Lagann lock horns in battle.

How is type C a trope? If it's a coincidence it's not a storytelling convention, it's PSOC.
