When the authors of a work do something badly or weirdly, on purpose, to achieve a particular reaction.
- Artistic License
- Deliberately Bad Example
- Deliberately Monochrome
- Deliberate Values Dissonance
- Intended Audience Reaction
- Intentional Engrish for Funny
- Stylistic Suck
When the author claims afterwards that they were aiming for this, it's a Deliberate Flaw Retcon.
