Rename Moriarty Effect


  • The first association is with criminal masterminds, not breakout villains.
  • Very small number of wicks for an established trope.
  • Moriarty himself is only debateably an example; while he is only mentioned in a few stories he was deliberately introduced as Holmes' archvillain.


  • Most usage is correct.
