17 2 (8.50)

Bigot with a Crush: Too contentious, due to being a bigotry trope; also attracts gossip. (CLOSED)

18 3 (6.00)

And I Must Scream: None of the examples listed count as And I Must Scream, given that "not dying" is necessary to distinguish it from Fate Worse than Death and we all have to face our mortality one day. (CLOSED)

14 2 (7.00)

Badass Mustache: Too common. The majority of the RL examples only list a name with no further elaboration, and its sister trope Badass Beard is already on NoRealLife.Too Common. (CLOSED)
