Basic Trope: The records (grades, bills, test outcome, etc) of two or more people get mixed up.

  • Straight: Bob puts Alice's name on Charlie's test.
  • Exaggerated: Bob misidentifies every single test result.
  • Downplayed: Bob confuses Alice and Charlie's tests for a few minutes but then figures it out.
  • Justified: The system is very poorly organized.
  • Inverted: ???
  • Subverted: Bob seemingly puts Alice's name on Charlie's test results, but then it turns out he didn't.
  • Advertisement:
  • Double Subverted: ...However, he did put Charlie's test results under Dracone's name.
  • Parodied: Bob confuses Alice and Charlie's test results...when it's something that clearly belongs to one or the other of them, like results of a pregnancy test.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: ???
  • Enforced: In order for the story to unfold the way the author wants, two disparate people have to be confused.
  • Lampshaded: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
