Jacob and Esau (the name of the current YKTTW thread)

  • Pros: Short and sweet. Related to Cain and Abel.
  • Cons: Not everyone is familiar with the book of Genesis, and even those who are may not automatically associate Jacob and Esau with this trope.


His And Hers Kids

  • Pros: Captures the meaning of the trope fairly well.
  • Cons: Could be confused with step-siblings.


Parental Alignment

  • Pros: Short and sweet. Broad enough to cover the full meaning of the trope.
  • Cons: Lacks precision.


Mother's Child, Father's Child

  • Pros: Captures the meaning of the trope fairly well.
  • Cons: Long. Could be confused with step-siblings.


Mama's Baby, Papa's Baby

  • Pros: Broad enough to cover the full meaning of the trope.
  • Cons: Could be confused with step-siblings. Unrelated to Mama's Baby, Papa's Maybe.


Parental Favourites


Mama's Favourite, Papa's Favourite

  • Pros: Clear
  • Cons: Long. Implies the trope is only about favouritism - which it isn't.
