Is this Compressed Adaptation?
Quick question about the Black Dude Dies First trope: Does it apply to a character who has dark skin in general? For example, in Sakura Wars (2019), Anastasia Palma, the sole member of the Flower Division who has dark skin, is the first of the main heroines to die onscreen at Yasha's hands in the penultimate chapter. However, it's subverted when she gets revived along with the rest of her comrades in the next chapter. Or would that count as misuse?

By the way this example from Knives Out reads off to me.
Thats read like a complaint.
Edit- Never mind. I see my question is actually addressed on the trivia page for the work.

Also, I would like to add a potential Face–Heel Turn entry regarding Future Rogue from Characters.Fairy Tail Criminals:
Does this count as a valid example or should it be rewritten?

The YMMV page for Date A Live has its Seasonal Rot described as:
Is this the correct use for Seasonal Rot? These entries are just describing flaws and don't go into much detail on how the jeopardized the future of Date A Live. No TV season is without its flaws, but they were successful enough to continue the series and ensure future seasons. What should we do about this?
When should you use Our Mermaids Are Different? Do you just use it whenever there's a half-human and half-fishtail person?
Can Singing Voice Dissonance be use when one person speak in one language while singing in another.
I would use it whenever the work has a type of creature called a "mermaid".
From Master of None:
The two tropes are opposite to each other, and while a character can fit both across different games, it's not possible in the same game.
I think he fits better as the former (Jack-of-All-Stats), so I'd opt to remove the latter (Master of None), but I'd like to consult it here because the second entry claims that many people prefer the other characters in the game (though I'd argue that that's mostly because of preference regarding those characters' specialized skills, rather than Mario being useless).

Yeah, Jack-of-All-Stats fits Mario better.
Alright, I have removed the example from MON. Thanks.

I'm not sure this on YMMV.Sonic The Hedgehog 1 counts:
I'd say that's not a Dancing Bear. The gimmicks may have helped, but ultimately Sonic 1 was successful on its merits as a game.
Over on Animal Crossing: New Horizons:
The thing about this example is, it's the same hive and the same stinging insects — all that's different now is the English text referring to them. For reference, it looks like this◊. I'm almost sure this change doesn't "finally avert" the trope.
Yeah I would cut that.
It's Pronounced "Tro-PAY"'s description says that it's supposed to be for when something is pronounced differently in an effort to sound more high class or snooty. But most examples are just general names being pronounced differently from the norm. Is that misuse?
Relatedly, the main series page has
Cut that too, or is this okay?
Is the Dumpster Dive trope flexible enough to include the following? I initially thought it did, but rereading the trope page, I am not so sure.
It doesn't include an actual dumpster but it is about going through rubbish to survive/make a living.
- Yeah, I think there's something about dumpsters being confined, and a junkyard or something is different.
Also, the "Make a living out of it".
Maybe just Trash Picking TLP or something. VideoGame.Cute Knight 1 has another example as the only way to make money when trapped in the slums.
Would this count as s Visual Pun for Steven Universe: Future.
Blue Diamond gain an ability to inflict happiness which takes the form of clouds. Basically, they are on cloud nine.
I added this to Ambiguously Human but does this count:
@wingedcatgirl: Going off the trope description, that example seems okay.
Video Games' soundtracks for their stages / locations... Do they go on Location Song?
Because there's been no Video Game entries and no wicks to Location Song from a Video Game...

From Characters.Sonic The Hedgehog 2020 under Sonic the Hedgehog, are the following two examples notable aversions:
And from the same page, should this example be allowed on the page - since it's troping a design that ultimately wasn't used in the final film and thus qualifies as What Could Have Been?

How well does it match the trope?
