Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: It is YMMV as some viewers of a work won’t consider it necessary to deliver a moral, or that the writer(s) are preaching to the choir.


* {{Discontinuity}} %%Now a disambiguation page, mostly refers to FanonDiscontinuity

Added DiffLines:

* MorePopularReplacement: A new character who replaces an old one, but ends up being more popular. Essentially the opposite to a ReplacementScrappy.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel - Something extremely scary and unsettling. YMMV as not everyone is scared by the same things.


* NeverLiveItDown: A character/person does something shocking, disturbing, embarrassing, unforgivable, etc. and everyone constantly (and needlessly) keep judging that character/person for that one action he/she has done. YMMV because some people are mature enough to simply let it slide.

Don't add these in the main page. Not as "played", straight or otherwise. They go on the YMMV page. The rule against "ThisTroper"-like statements also counts for these. For ease of quickly identifying items that belong on the YMMV page, just look for the links whose bullet point has been replaced by balancing scales. But ''please'', make sure that the entry is actually a YMMV example, and not a YMMV Trope being used InUniverse: [[note]]or a Trivia item -- the wiki marks these because they should be moved to the Trivia/ subpage, but it's currently bugged and displays the same scales and instructions as YMMV items[[/note]]

'''The only way this can be allowed on the main page, is if one of these tropes happens in the show, ''and'' gets that reaction from the ''characters'' that these tropes often get from the audience.''' This is what we call an InUniverse example. But ''make sure'' to use the "[=InUniverse=]" or "[[Main/{{InvokedTrope}} invoked]]" markup so that the bullet point will not be changed to scales.

Please index ''redirects'' to any of these tropes on YMMVRedirects rather than here, so that they don't mess up navigation via the index bar but still get the scales.

* {{YMMV}} (or variations of this) - In fact, this should never be listed as an example, considering the huge list of sub items.


* AbandonShipping: This means that something happened in-universe that caused people who used to ship two characters as a couple to not ship them anymore. As shipping is something the viewers do, not the characters, and some shippers keep shipping regardless, it is a YMMV.

Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The story is too bleak to get invested. This is YMMV because not everyone will agree on what counts as meaningless conflict.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiMetagameCharacter: When CharacterTiers result in one of the "best" characters losing to someone a lot "worse" than them.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A plot that has wasted promise or could've taken a different route compared to what they went with. YMMV because the plot being "wasted" is subjective.


* ThirtySuePileup: A work with lots of Mary Sue and/or Marty Stu characters. YMMV because Mary Sue/Marty Stu are subjective.
