I just had this deleted for it being a story trope
Is Asshole Victim a story trope? I've always thought it was a character trope because it was about a character having a nasty fate but the character itself deserves it.

Does this count, since it's not unlikely for a player to talk to that woman, given that she's not hidden, or is it just downplayed?

I've started to question the validity of an Infinity +1 Sword entry on Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
To my knowledge, Infinity +1 Sword is meant for equipment that you'll never get if you don't deviate from normal gameplay loops. The X-02S in this game is easily acquired by just hoarding currency through replaying the story campaign or Free Mission. It would've been a different story if there were more conditions like some of those hellish medals (No-Damage Run and Gun Only Run, to name a few) in Assault Records, but that's not the case.
This wouldn't be brought up if not for different tropers repeatedly insisting that a superplane that becomes available from the get go with a paid DLC is an Infinity +1 Sword, which to me totally isn't an example due to the lack of effort required in acquiring it (other than spending real money).
Reposting from the previous page:
A few more examples from Hellboy (2019).
Does the following count as a notable Aversion?:
These examples are comparing the film to the previous Hellboy adaptations, shouldn't these tropes be instead comparing it to the original source material. Also do both examples provide enough context:
Would a reference to Revolutionary Girl Utena be a Parental Bonus? It's a shoujo but on the mature side of shoujo.
By itself, no. It only counts if the reference is specifically to something inappropriate for the audience of the work, and older viewers can be expected to get it without being intimately familiar with the referenced work.

I added this to AudienceAlienatingPremise.Live Action TV within the Doctor Who section but does this fit?:
- Not unless it actually alienated an Audience.
Thats more They Changed It, Now It Sucks!. And even im not sure on that.
Are the examples for Author's Saving Throw on Aladdin (2019) examples?
Only the fourth entry is salvageable. The first three reek of WTH, Casting Agency? complaining.
I noticed that many tropers tend to use Author's Saving Throw for things that aren't story related like quality-of-life changes in gameplay (that's my number one issue with this trope, and maybe we should start a cleanup thread). That is Square Peg, Round Trope.
I see. I haven't seen much complaining about Jasmine's role in the original movie, but I have seen a lot of Author's Saving Throw where it pertains to gameplay patches to adjust balance or fan backlash, IE movie!Sonic's design changes. I think the last time AST came up in a discussion it was proposed to rework it to accept gameplay changes, but as far as I know nothing came of it.

Isn't this not "unwanted", but "just waiting for the right time"? A medicine works against an immediate threat? It being useful before it happens, would be a vaccine?
I honestly see Goku being too stupid not to take it right away. Its not unwanted, just stupid.
I remember adding that example when the trope was still TLP. I think I added it mostly because I was also adding the Abridged version, which seemed a straighter example where Goku deliberately avoided taking the medicine because it was grape flavor.
In hindsight, I can see how the regular series version doesn't fit.
I added this to AudioPlay.Big Finish Doctor Who but am I wrong here:
I believe that fits.
Trivia.Star Trek The Next Generation S 2 E 9 The Measure Of A Man:
Is this accurate? I'm trying to fact-check this and while we definitely have supercomputers that far exceed Data in this department (and have for a while now), I can't figure out whether "average component bought by average consumer off average store shelf" is in this range or not.
This was deleted from Kiddie Kid because it wasn't deemed immature enough:
Is it an example or not? I've never heard of any kid who actually believed in "cooties", but it seems like something you grow out of by age 7 or 8.
Given it's literally a single sentence, I'd leave it off just for being Zero-Context. If there was an episode elaborating on cooties and whether or not they were too old to believe in them or something, there's not enough context to say either way if it's a proper example. Even noting, like you did, whether it's common to have grown out of it by this point would be helpful.
The Flash (2014) once got removed from the Dramedy page because I said it obviously wasn't, but somehow, it got readded.
This was on a Values Dissonance page. I'm doubting whether the anime has swearing. That sounds like Obligatory Swearing added in by subbers.
From Characters.Kimetsu No Yaiba.
He Who Fights Monsters: While their motto is to destroy only "evil" demons, when confronted with a good demon like Nezuko they outright refuse to believe it is true and some even become incredibly angry.
Would the sentence be more in with Van Helsing Hate Crime since they would most likely kill a good demon?
