What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

The article's definition is unclear and possibly confusing with Anti Frustration Features.

An analysis of in-page examples shows at least 60% are "consolation prize for repeated failure", approximately 25% of which duplicate the same examples from Anti Frustration Features.

Usage in the related wikilinks has yet to be analyzed or documented — anyone willing to do the legwork please volunteer.

Courses of action to resolve this situation need to be determined.

Define as Sub-Trope


  • Canonizing a clear relation between the two will help elminate confusion.


  • Up to half of the in-page examples for Mercy Mode (related wikilinks TBA) don't actually fit the current/proposed definition.

Combine with/from Anti-Frustration Features


  • Similar definitions; eliminates duplication of examples between the two pages.

Redefine and clean up examples


  • Not that much overlap between in-page examples.
