Since the trope is no longer named "Nietzsche Wannabe" might I suggest removing the examples that are simply characters who profess to follow Nietzschean philosophy without fitting the description in the Laconic?

Where does the straw part come in?

A fair number of real life nihilists act more like The Anti-Nihilist. Which is noted on that trope's page.

I thought it was decided nearly a year ago that we wouldn't be renaming another one of the classic tropes!

Good riddance. It was a stupid title and a source of both misunderstandings and complaints.

Honestly, I'd really like it if the title could be changed. Straw Nihilist sounds like it's a trope for stereotypes of real-world beliefs, like the various Strawman Political tropes whereas this is a trope for a villain motivation or lack thereof.

Feel free to propose such in the Trope Repair Shop. Be aware that you'll need to make a good case for a rename.
