The "Eyes Wide Shut" reference needs to be changed to something else; that's a film, not a trope.

  • Subverted with Hyouma Muroga. He has basically the same broken abilities as his nephew Gennosuke, but he also can't turn them off. (For different reasons depending on which media we're talking of.) Therefore he must go Eyes Wide Shut all the time, or he risks affecting both friend and foe.

Seems like Eyes Always Shut is the trope that belongs. I would recommend to disambiguate Main.Eyes Wide Shut between the work and that.

What's the difference between " Superpower Lottery" and "Flying Brick"?

From the descriptions, it seems like "Flying Brick" is a specific set of powers while "Superpower Lottery" is just having powers that are way more powerful than the rest of the group.

Is Superpower Lottery really the best name for this trope? The word "lottery," at least to me, would seem to imply the potential to lose as well as winning. I think "Superpower Jackpot" might be better.

There is the potential to lose. The idea is that there is one superpowered character in a group that has powers that are so far beyond the others that they are on a whole separate level of power. That character won, everyone else lost.

For some reason, this article has the same text as Story-Breaker Power. I propose that we either delete Story-Breaker Power or merge the two articles.

Something fishy's going on here. Someone *overwrote* the entire Story-Breaker Power article with the contents of this one on Nov. 10th.

  • correction: Nov. 15th. Sorry.
