Take XanatosGambit, which many have confused with any brilliant scheme. It isn't (most of those actually fall under BatmanGambit now), and now it has Plan A Plus Plan B as a redirect (We even ThePlan as a supertrope for generic use). It's a bit more to type, but it makes the meaning of the trope clearer (although Xanatos Gambit is still the main name for it).
