Maybe amend the Assassin's Creed entry to make it more clear the whole business is an ascended joke? (Early reviewers of the game fell prey to the default camera angle, which neatly lined up the protagonist's finger stump with the inside forearm sheath for the hidden blade, and declared it to be hidden inside the hand. There's no in-game evidence to suggest the missing finger was anything more than one of the random accidents of life in a hard land.)

Removed this because it's in first person mode and isn't even complete. It shouldn't be put back until it has a more complete description in normal third-person form.

  • There's a festival somewhere in SE Asia, I believe, where all males above their early teens buy razor blades, barbed wire, and small knives, and spend a day slashing their own chests open in the name of... something. I saw a piece of a National Geographic documentary on it. If anyone could find more information on that, it would really help the trope.

Can we please rename this to "Machochism"?

I second that. It's a shorter, simpler, catchier title that makes the idea of the trope instantly apparent.

Fight Club is listed twice. I'm not sure which entry is better to keep, though.
