To whom it may concern: Please do not add natter regarding the name Giovanni from Pokémon. Trying to justify whether the name is an example or not (especially trying "to be fair" while doing so) is considered natter because it's purely tangential to the actual example the entry is trying to show (the one regarding the Gen III villains). Please don't insist with this, or you'll trigger an Edit War. Thank you.

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.
