This trope has been re-defined. I don't know whether this example is valid for the new definition. It may need rewording to show how it fits the new definition. If it's valid, please restore it here and on the trope page.

Anyone care to explain what the Hell the Jade Giants were?

Shouldn't the page title be The Malazan Book of the Fallen, with the version without the article being the redirect?

On the question of Karsa Orlong being a scrappy:
  • Who in their right mind would consider an Up to Eleven Badass whose favourite pastime is slaying demons with his bare hands to be The Scrappy? God-Mode Sue might be understandable, but Scrappy?
    • Female readers who find his culture's love of rape and pilage to be a severe Values Dissonance?
    • 'Love' is not the word I'd use, but good point, I honestly didn't remember that. Although I'd like to point out that (AFAIR) no raping/pillaging has been commited by Karsa since he's left home. Sure he's pulled his fair share of "give me your stuff or I'll kick your shit", but who in this Crapsack World hasn't?

I think it more a case of Deliberate Values Dissonance with Karsa, his view of morality is very...different to everyone else's.

I don't think Hide Your Lesbians applies for Tavore/T'amber. Ericson doesn't really elaborate relationships, and at times he's (or the characters are) quite explicit about what 'goes on in their tent.'

Also there are a number of other lesbian characters - Stonny, Some of the Heavies, Lorn - and they are not treated any different than the straight characters (at least by the author).
