Pro:

  • A wick check indicated substantial (approximately 30-60%) misuse.
  • Character-named trope that
    • Requires familiarity with a particular work to make sense.
    • Is ambiguous on its own: Vasquez could just as easily be "a Hispanic man" or "the Hispanic character" as "the less-feminine action girl"
    • Is ambiguous even with familiarity with the work: Is Vasquez "the less-feminine Action Girl" or "the tough Token Minority chick"?

Con:

  • Difficulty creating an unambiguous, iconic name for the trope.

Neutral:

NOTE: If this does get renamed, the title Vasquez Always Dies may be reappropriated for a new trope to match the misuse. This will be decided in a later crowner.
