  • Aluminum Christmas Trees:
    • Selectively breeding domestic creatures to create something similar to their wild ancestors is a real practice called breeding-back. Its scope, however, is somewhat limited - Tamaskan dogs, for example, bear about as strong a resemblance to wolves as can be gained without actually introducing wolves into the breeding program, yet behaviorally and temperamentally they are still more like dogs than wolves (which is exactly what Tamaskan breeders want anyway, so it works out).

    • Recreating a wildcat type would likely be incredibly easy, as domestic cats are closer in both behavior and appearance to their ancestors than dogs are, and a cat who has had little to no human contact will tend to act quite wild anyway. There are even arguments that cats are not truly domesticated, and should instead be considered semi-domestic wild animals.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: As detailed below, the entire series was dropped by the publisher due to some controversial statements, even being delisted from amazon. This is notable bad for the English version of Salve Roma!, which was only available digitally.
  • No Export for You:
    • Initially, apart from the first 2 books, the Felidae series had not been translated and released in the U.S. and the English editions of those two were out of print for a long time. Now they are available in e-book form (or not, see above), along with the fifth book, Salve Roma!, which has been translated. So perhaps the other installments will eventually be released in English as well.

    • As of late 2015, this applies to all the works of Pirincci inside Germany as well; After the author held an extremely Islamophobic speech at a Pegida rally (too radical even for Pegida, apparently), his publishers permanently distanced themselves from him and his works, discontinuing sales.


  • International Coproduction: The animation for the film was split between companies in Denmark, Canada, Ireland, South Korea and Taiwannote 
  • No Export for You: The movie falls under this trope too, aside from brief releases in Australia, Mexico and Russia. A DVD release for the UK and North America was reportedly planned, but eventually cancelled.

  • Now Which One Was That Voice?: The English dub actors were uncredited, which made people make guesses to the actors' names. Subverted, as they weren't actually celebrity voice actors but rather talented yet very obscure voice actors from London (Jeff Harding as Francis, Graham Parker as Bluebeard, Tamsin Hollo as Felicity…).

How well does it match the trope?
