Merge Unlucky Childhood Friend with Victorious Childhood Friend into a third trope with a different name

Pros

  • The characters are the same in both cases and have no real substantial differences.
  • UCF's name is based on the faulty premise that the character type usually loses.
  • Either trope being listed on a page is automatically a spoiler, especially VCF.
  • Many characters can be both or either of the two, like Left Hanging endings, or Multiple Endings with video games.

Cons

  • The story's tone often favors one of the resolutions (Victorious or Unlucky), resulting in different plots and treatment of the childhood friend character, depending on which outcome it's moving towards.
