Usually the Trope Namer is listed first in whatever section they qualify for.

"Despite its popularity in media, this trope is not usually Truth in Television for the reason that most political and military leaders know better than to blab state secrets to women they get to know in private company." Someone is massively overestimating the Male ego.

I think it being at the end is fine since it's the last section, thus putting it at the end actually makes it stand out more, you know?

I do wholeheartedly agree with the second point, though. It's less "A ha! You sleep with me! I give you secrets now!" and more that they let their guard down, which could lead to a slip of the tongue or even just leaving her unattended in a room that has documents somewhere.

It makes it stand out less than it would if it was first. And delegating the most relevant information to the end of the page is counter-intuitive, and a little bit troublesome for people with little familiarity with the trope. The clarification is only useful if it comes before examples.
