Does anyone know a trope that fits memory erasing powers?

The ordering of elemental powers.

If it was alphabetical by trope name or by element or even just started off in the order of the classical elements it would make some sense. However I have noticed that Earth, Fire, Wind Water and Heart are in the order of the Captain Planet theme tune so it looks like somebody didn't get the joke and then inserted nature et al in the wrong place.

I moved it to put them first in the theme tune order but really, when you have subtropes of fire and all the other in and the possibility some people just won't be familiar with the work, it won't be sustainable.

I think the best thing would be to go for alphabetical order by the element but then end it with Heart...GO PLANET! The joke will then depend only on the position of one thing, people will know where to add new ones and there's something to indicate the joke.
