Cleopatra Nose: This is an attractive character trope. Using it for real life people is subjective and gushing. [-[added 16th Sep '14 at 05:57:26 PM]-]

Karmic Rape: We aren't calling real people evil or saying they should be raped as punishment.

Evil Will Fail: Evil trope

Adults Are Useless: Real Life is not a narrative, so the trope cannot exist in Real Life. All of the examples are shoehorned complaining.

He-Man Woman Hater: Too controversial, not to mention that it's a way to stereotype people.
[Added 9th Sep '14 at 07:26:31 PM]

Effeminate Misogynistic Guy: Too controversial. Also a way to stereotype people.
[Added 9th Sep '14 at 07:28:37 PM]

Limit Break: Gameplay mechanic not possible in real life; Examples are shoehorned.
[Added 10th Sep '14 at 09:07:15 AM]

[Added 12th Sep '14 at 07:51:49 AM]

Tragic Bigot: Calling real people bigots.
[Added 12th Sep '14 at 07:52:43 AM]

You Are What You Hate: Calling real people bigoted, Natter magnet.

Awesome Mc Coolname: Too common to trope.

Condescending Compassion: Attracts nothing but natter and shoehorning.
[19th Sep '14 at 04:37:17 PM]

Post-Modern Magik: Functional magic doesn't exist in real life, nor do the mythological creatures such magic gets used against.
[Added 13th Sep '14 at 07:06:01 AM]

Some of My Best Friends Are X: While not inherently calling real people bigots, the trend in the examples is still calling real people bigots.
[Added 12th Sep '14 at 11:08:07 PM]

N-Word Privileges: Natter and debate on if someone's use of a word is bigotry or acceptable
[19th Sep '14 at 04:41:48 PM]

Blue and Orange Morality: Impossible in real life.
