Also, does Finish Dialogue in Unison seem specifically different enough from Speak in Unison, to get its own trope?
I see examples of both on both pages. Some are duplicates, but most aren't. It has potential for TRS, and it also has potential for FDIU to be made a Sub-Trope of SIU.

Speak in Unison is indexed in Mind Manipulation, and Paranormal Tropes
I've been instructed that indexes aren't always supertropes, and therefore the same standard of "every example" doesn't apply. Probably a question for TRS, if it's already going there.

Damsel Fight-and-Flight Response and Once Is Not Enough seem to be different viewpoints of the same events?

Lame Excuse and Playing Sick seem to be similar concepts, but don't wick to each other. Should they?

[up] - Yes, especially since Lame Excuse's second paragraph says:

"The injury or disease may or may not be largely inhibiting or even real."

[up]I think Waif-Fu is a subtrope of She-Fu, which is about female fighters doing styled moves with lots of elaborate dodges. So yes, it does have to involve martial arts.

[up] - A simple punch counts as "Martial Arts" enough, right?

Wait, no, it's gotta be fancy martial arts, right? Not just punching above your weight class?


PlayingWith.Scheherezade Gambit says that Perilous Play is an Invocation.

Perilous Play calls itself a Inversion of Scheherezade Gambit.

What's the correct relation?

I'd say they're both wrong, and they should only be compared to each other. The "delaying tactic" and mutual enthusiasm are missing from Perilous Play. The antagonist holds the storyteller hostage in both (and sometimes isn't trying to kill them in Perilous).

Higher Self wicks to The Consigliere, but there's no crosswicking.

I guess the connection is that The Consigliere serves the role that a Higher Self does?


Also, what's the connection between the indexes, This Index Is Copypasted and Doppelgänger?

I'd agree that The Consigliere represents a character role in the same way that the Higher Self represents a personality facet.


I believe This Index Is Copypasted is an index of tropes about copying and Doppelgänger is a supertrope for characters that look alike.
I'd like to hear opinions on the relationships between The Magnificent, Red Baron, and The Butcher. The latter two tropes don't agree on their relationship.

Our Monsters Are Different looks like an Index, and is typed as an Index, but its 700+ wicks, show that it's used as a trope.

Dewick?

[up][up]If it's typed as an index, it should probably be dewicked.

[up]According to He Who Must Not Be Seen, The Ghost is apparently a variant of it, though it seems more like a subtrope when we take the other two variants into consideration. The Ghost is simply not seen, The Voice is not seen, but heard, and the Faceless is seen, but not for the face. He Who Must Not Be Seen seems to be the "simply not seen" definition again.

[up] - So, TRS for The Ghost and He Who Must Not Be Seen, right?


Gondor Calls for Aid vs. The Cavalry.

If someone is sent, mid-fighting, to call for aid, is that at least some variety of Gondor Calls for Aid, or must it just be deliberately planned, before fighting?

I guess my idea might be Bring Help Back, for the person sent to retrieve help... If a person is sent, and help isn't more literally called in, like via cellphone.

Is Wicked Cultured a Sub-Trope of Cultured Badass, or are they Sister Trope s with the latter being limited to "good" characters?

What's the connection between Spam Attack, Multishot and Spread Shot?

VideoGame.Titan Quest has the Volley skill that turns one arrow / throwing knife / axe / discus / chakram, into three, and that's listed under Flechette Storm, a Spam Attack subtrope?

Flechette Storm probably shouldn't be a Sub-Trope to Spam Attack. Multishot and Spread Shot might need to be merged. The difference between Spread Shot and Spam Attack is the difference between a single attack and using a single attack a ridiculous number of times. Your "split into three weapons" is a type covered in Spread Shot, but the Flechette Storm can occur from a Spam Attack as well.

Kill and Replace and Replicant Snatching are different how?

They both seem like "Someone dies, and the killer takes their place".


A section of Rapid-Fire Descriptors is, or is not a Long List, even though it's not someone deliberately listing things out like a shopping list?

[up] I don't see Rapid-Fire Descriptors and Long List as related. Saying several adjectives in a row either in anger or to sound clever in a Purple Prose way is different from deliberately listing items. IMO. :-)
