  • Arthur Dent is known for more things than just this trope
  • As a character-named trope, it's an opaque reference for those unfamiliar with the source.


  • Fairly wide usage, indicating that the name may not be hampering the trope badly


  • 392 wicks and 867 inbounds
  • A wick check has been done, but the ability to check for misuse is limited without knowledge of the series involved. Thus, potentially inconclusive. The wick check is here for those interested.
