Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 54

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

These are pages that have been proposed to have their Real Life sections cut and tagged to not be recreated. Please discuss pages before adding them to the crowner. Entries made without discussion are subject to deletion.

Vote UP to indicate you think the Page should have NO Real Life examples.

Vote DOWN to allow Real Life examples.

Items that have been stricken (like so) have already been decided, meeting the following requirements:
  • They have ten or more total votes,
  • have been on the crowner for at least 48 hours, measured from when the addition of the new crowner entry is announced in a thread post,
  • and are stable with at least a 2:1 vote ratio.

No further voting is needed on those items.

To check if something has already been voted on, please see Keep Real Life Examples.

Yank the Dog's Chain: Narrative trope, and requires a Butt-Monkey (the "dog" in question), which isn't possible in RL.

[Added 4th Feb 2018, 11:45:01 AM]


Good Guns, Bad Guns: Morality trope. The moral stereotypes of guns applied to real people.

[Added 28th Feb '18 at 09:06:50 AM]


[Removed under consensus: multiple tropes added to one entry without discussion, and without proof of an actual need to make them NRLEP.]


Hollywood Tactics is about artistic license in the way war is conducted, yet it has a real life section. Real life doesn't have breaks from reality. The examples in the real life section are just X commander doing something that was stupid, which isn't what the trope is about. The real life section should be removed, and only examples about fictionalized warfare should remain.
