Page Type: trope
Much like how there are tropes with images that don't actually portray the trope, there are a few with tropes with page quotes that don't actually use the trope in the material they are taken from.
So why is the quote being use on the page? One of the reasons is likely because even though the work doesn't provide an example of the trope, the quote just fits so well with the trope. This reason is often why it used as the quote for the trope.
This is not for quotes that don't represent the trope. If the quote doesn't fit at all, discussion will be needed on a replacement or removal.
- The Death of Death: The quote comes from the first story in Cthulhu Mythos which doesn't actually feature an embodiment of Death dying in any possible way.
- Night and Day Duo: Miss Saigon's "Sun and Moon" only compares Kim and Chris to the sun and moon because they're Starcrossed Lovers; the show doesn't give them themed appearances/powers/etc.
- Shouldn't We Be in School Right Now?: Shortly after the beginning of the story, the characters get stuck in a game which can bring about the apocalypse, which is a pretty good reason not to be in school. And even with regard to this first day, the story starts after school would have ended for some of the characters, and for one other it'd be stranger if she did go to school.
- Stealth Pun: The trope is about a pun that's there but not addressed. Crow's quote from Mystery Science Theater 3000 was simply about a bad joke.
- Wartime Wedding: The 'awful things' referred to in the song "Let's Only Think About Love", set during the Steven Universe episode "Reunion", are not war. An invasion does around the time of the wedding, but it's coincidence.
