"In City of Heroes, Leonard "Frostfire" Calhoun (Yes, that is his real name)"

"(Yes, that is his real name)" is potholed to Unfortunate Names. Why? I've Googled "Leonard Calhoun" and "Lenny Calhoun" and only come up with pages for people actually named that. There's also no entry for Leonard Calhoun on the Unfortunate Names page that would clarify it.

Can we either get a clarification of this joke, or remove it?

Sinkhole. You can remove it.

Is this trope too controversial for Real Life examples and why? What controversy would arise from it?

Same as all the other Evil Tropes, I'd imagine; calling real people "evil" is just asking for trouble.

I just removed the MLP example with Luna, because it's certainly not a proper example of this trope (at no point does Luna go evil; I think I'd struggle to call her even mean); and the way it's phrased is misleading as to what happens in the episode.

  • This happens in the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic episode, "Luna Eclipsed." When Princess Luna comes back on the holiday Nightmare Night, she tries to earn back the affection of her subjects. Despite Twilight Sparkle trying to help, Princess Luna fails and declares Nightmare Night to be cancelled forever.
