26 2 (13.00)

Darkest Hour: This is a narrative structure trope, and thus the trope is impossible to embody in real life. (CLOSED)

23 4 (5.75)

Ensemble Dark Horse: Narrative trope and potential flame bait with political figures. Real life does not have the narrative factor required for the trope to work. (CLOSED)

Die for Our Ship: Audience reaction whose RL equivalent was recently made NRLEP and IUEO for being a complaint and flamebait magnet. (CLOSED)
[Added 27th Aug '19 at 07:26:55 PM]

22 5 (4.40)

Memetic Loser: Invites calling real-life figures losers. (CLOSED)

Unnecessary Makeover: Complaining about real life people who decided to go through cosmetic surgery. It also unnecessarily tropes real life people in their YMMV pages. (CLOSED)

[Added 28th May '20 at 01:08:22 PM]

15 1 (15.00)

The Soulless: A morality trope, and not applicable in real life. (CLOSED)
[Added 30th Jun '20 at 02:47:14 PM]

16 2 (8.00)

The Sociopath: The current validity of this disorder is debatable, and it invites making moral calls on real life figures. (CLOSED)
[Added 30th Jul '20 at 10:10:13 AM]

Ending Fatigue: Narrative Audience Reaction. (CLOSED)
[Added 10th Feb '20 at 05:11:39 PM]

13 1 (13.00)

Gay Best Friend: Tokenism trope that requires a narrative, which is impossible in real life. Also full of zero context examples. (CLOSED)
[Added 21st Feb '20 at 6:33:14 PM]

11 3 (3.67)

Serious Business: It’s a narrative trope, too common in real life, and attracts complaining. (CLOSED)

Byronic Hero: Morality trope that attracts gushing about real life people. (CLOSED)
[Added 12th Jul '20 at 01:23:59 PM]

9 1 (9.00)

Heel–Face Brainwashing: Both a morality trope and impossible in real life.

8 2 (4.00)

Basement-Dweller: Prone to gossip and stereotypes, and many of the examples in the Real Life folder violate Examples Are Not General and/or miss the part about people like such being portrayed as losers.

10 7 (1.43)

Sealed Good in a Can: Morality trope (CLOSED)
[Added 16th Aug '19 at 08:39:38 AM]

11 8 (1.38)

15 12 (1.25)

La Résistance: This is a morality trope, and its real life page is full of Flame Bait. (CLOSED)
[Added 8th Dec '19 at 12:41:39 PM]

Ironic Echo: Narrative Trope, potential flame bait. (CLOSED)

[Added July 15, 2020, 4:30PM]

Insult to Rocks: As an insult/complaining trope, real life examples would be Flame Bait, and political entries would especially violate the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement. (CLOSED)
[Added 2nd Jan '20 at 12:20:04 PM]

Removed because we agreed not to include it in the crowner in the first place.

Ridiculously Cute Critter: Way too common in real life (especially when it comes to pets, considering almost everyone thinks their own dog or cat is a Ridiculously Cute Critter), and many of the examples list entire species, which may violate Examples Are Not General. (CLOSED)
[Added 3rd Jun '20 at 05:35:15 AM]

Removed because of a lack of agreement to add it to the crowner.
