Should these examples be on the page? They don't fit the trope as currently described.

Known Unknown: Odd cases. Technically they are The Adjective Number, since numbers are adjectives, but not in the form that the trope is representing. But yeah, get rid of em.

The Adjective Number is supposed to be a mad-libs style title meaning the examples should read "The [adjective] [number]". I'd say there are enough examples of that form to cut these, which aren't.

AceNoctali : I'm the Troper who added most of the discussed examples above. I do not mind if you cut those examples, but :

  • For one, I'd like to note that, if you're using that definition of the trope, then the current name for it, The Notable Numeral, is then misleading.
  • Two, the page quote too doesn't fit this trope, as, if I'm not mistaken, "hive" is a common noun, not an adjective.
  • Three, I think that the trope definition should be either enlarged to include the cut examples, or creating a page specifically for them, as IMO it's a signifiant trope used often in fiction.
