Okay...there are a ton of zero-context examples here, some of which are just gushing over shows being badass (the Mass Effect one, for instance, is just gushing over how much of a badass Shepard is without providing any real context for it—also not mentioning Femshep). Perhaps we could clean this page up a bit.

I agree. Many examples have just derived to includes every setting where men are strong characters, but without the parody-levels of PREPOSTERONE the trope implies.

Just wanna say that the new image is excellent.

Is this primarily a work related trope, or can it also be applied to characters?

There seems to be a lot of topics like should belong in Testosterone Poisioning instead like Team Fortress 2 who is a very obvious parody (In fact Saxton Hale takes the picture there)

I think we should try to clean the topic a bit

Seconded. If we want them to be separate tropes, it'll need a lot of cleaning.

I clicked that link for that "I Love The 80s Strikes Back" and could find a single mention of anything that "struck back" as it were. Are the two really related? Regardless of that, a write-up would be appreciated.

It's just the title of the show. It's a reference to Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, which came out in 1980 and was the sequel to Star Wars: A New Hope. "I Love the 80s Strikes Back" is the second installment of the "I Love the 80s" program on VH-1.
