Is there a way to arrange this so people can avoid major spoilers/reveals in examples? Maybe list the subversions and such separately for examples where it's not apparent very quickly that the guy with a good guy name is actually a bad guy?

No need to list seperately: Ensign Hugh Mann on Futurama isn't a spoiler, because he's an obvious joke about Brannigan constantly hogging the Idiot Ball

Hypothetical example to list separately: If you have a movie about, say, vampires, where a group of humans are being protected by a group of soldiers led by a guy named Captain Shepherd, and it turns out that the Captain and his men are all actually vampires playing the John Connor routine to lure in their next meals, and this is treated as a HSQ-upping reveal in the second or third act.

Just add another folder for the subversion and mark it (SPOILERS!).

You can use these tags [[folder:Subversions (Spoilers!)]] [[/ folder]]

Just remove the space between the forward slash and folder.

I think we need a system for sorting by name, rather than just adding character names in long list. After all not every protagonist named counts, only the reoccurring ones do.

Of course! My pleasure. As usual, it takes an Evil Genius! to fix things. Poor heroes can never get organized, we have to do it... for... them.

Dag nabit!
