Maybe a dumb question. Why is this not called Danger sense?

While I was placing a item about SheZow's SheSP, I think I damaged the page.

Can someone fix it, please?

All fixed up. Thanks for adding the example in the first place!

No problem!

Okay, why would there be separate pages for this trope and My Significance Sense Is Tingling? If a character has this power, they're obviously going to be seen using it (unless it's only an Informed Attribute). So why specify power and use?

Magnum PI - main character had a "little voice" that would occasionally warn him of something dangerous/being wrong.

Since the (fictional) trope refers to magical powers, a Real Life section is inappropriate. Moving this material off Main.

  • Blue Sense is the term used within law-enforcement for the intuition, sometimes bordering on psychic awareness, that possessed by some officers and cultivated within police precincts and other law-enforcement and peacekeeping agencies. Blue Sense can detect the guilt (or intentions) of a suspect, the nature of bystanders, and even warn of impending hostility or danger.
    • There is also a Red Sense that some firefighters possess and may even develop* that guides them to fire-victims in unnavigable smoke-filled rooms, or warns them of impending explosions.
  • Situation Awareness Training as it is applied to front line soldiers also includes development of intuition, and the awareness of bodily reactions (e.g. neck-hair creep) that are responses to hunches, bad feelings, etc. In frenetic situations (such as battlefield conditions), our senses are aware of much more than we can consciously recognize as our brains try to process out the Essential Elements of Data (actually called EEDs)* . So intuition is awareness of our instinctive responses to perceived but not observed dangers, whether through our familiar senses, or through ones less commonly known.

Uh, at what point was this designated fictional or magical? There's nothing to indicate spider sense precludes a cross section into real-world effects, superstitious or otherwise.
