Top quote says a RiffTrax is the trope namer, but never specifies what is being riffed. What is it?

It's a Riff Trax on the trope namer, which is Harry Potter. The Riff Trax itself isn't the trope namer.

I understand that a lot of "normal guys" are named Adam, but given how it was the name of the first human in Judeo-Christianity, it's still Significant as a name. There's a LOT of Adams in the examples, though. Discuss?

Particularly since, even though "Adam" (or the equivalent) is a common first name in some Judeo-Christian cultures, it isn't in many others ... much less Japanese. In a manga or anime, such a moniker should be presumed significant—and hence doesn't belong here.

Agreed with both of you. In Buffy, for example, Adam is very much a meaningful name for a man/machine/supernatural being hybrid created by man. I'll delete this one.
