Light 'em Up has a very ambiguous quote that doesn't demonstrate the trope. Even the description 'Yuna casting Holy' is ZCE. It seems to be suffering from Fan Myopia. It doesn't explain as much as people familiar with the game might think.

"Light our way!"
Yuna casting Holy, Final Fantasy X

I've picked what I think are the best two options from the Quotes page, and added a third that I can think of, but which isn't on the quotes page.

If thou wouldst pierce the shadows... make thee a blade of Light.
Hydaelyn, the Mothercrystal, Final Fantasy XIV

A sword of steel can bring death to an enemy, but a sword of light can bring dawn to a world lost in darkness.
Flavour Text of the Sword of Light magic, Dawn of the Dragons

It is the desire to preserve life which fuels the Light inside you. And, make no mistake, it is Light. Preservation is an extension of creation or, at the very least, an enemy of destruction. The Creatures of Grimm were made by the God of Darkness, but your Light comes from his brother.
Maria Calavera, RWBY

The quote on Biopic is very complainy.

[up] Agreed.

Dork in a Sweater and All Cloth Unravels have the same quote. I like it better on All Cloth Unravels, but the only quote I could find in the folders for Dork in a Sweater is the Fairly Oddparents one. Should I put it in?

Added Alliterative Appeal is too long. We certainly don't need 49 V words to display the trope right?

Felt like I wanted to change a main quote from Armor-Piercing Response. I felt it's a bit too outdated.

Lord Shimura: You have no honor.
Jin Sakai: And you are a slave to it.

[up][up]I don't think the age of the works we use for quotes or images are really a concern most of the time, but regardless I think the current works better. The response hits harder.

I think this quote for I Can't Reach It works better than the current, since it's a much more direct lampshading of the trope:

If I had the slightest inclination to strain myself, I could probably reach it. However, I'm sure I can drag this out into a longer, yet more satisfying experience.

[up]I agree that it paints a better picture of the trope.

Mythpunk has two quotes, and I'm not really feeling either of them. There's no quotes tab or any examples of alternative quotes on the page.

Feb 14th 2021 at 5:09:25 PM

[up] Agreed. I'd be down for just leaving it quote-less for now.

[up][up][up] I agree, that works better.

Gratitude Tropes has two quotes. Which one are we using?

Supporting the first. Not even sure why the second was added, as no one but the most dickish people would agree with it (or anything incendiary Stalin said, for that matter).

Perhaps as a two-sides thing? Nevertheless, cut the second.

The quote on You Go, Girl! is a parody/criticism of the trope. I'd like to swap it with the one on the quotes page, which appears to be a straight example, and thus demonstrates the trope more clearly.

On the one hand, I would also prefer a straight example over a parody.

On the other, the World Heroes quote is extremely oblique.

Anyone have a third option?

Should No Budget’s quote be reverted? It was changed back in May last year, and while it was brought up in this thread, it never got reverted. I still prefer the old caption; I find it to be more interesting:

Q: Again, on the low budget problem, in Paradise Towers you have a monster that was two neon rings in a dark room...
Cartmel: We were lucky to have the neon rings! Thank god it was a dark room!

[up]I like that one too; the current feels more like a non-sequitur.

The quote for Hive-Mind Testimonial is rather hostile, even if it's not wrong. Since there's no quotes page, should it just be removed.
