[up] Definitely remove Brian from Creator's Pet, and remove Chris. In fact, for these two, you probably wouldn't even need to ask before removing they objectively don't meet the requirements for Creator's Pet or Base-Breaking Character.

I think Stewie just needs a rewrite.

  • Stewie, post-Villain Decay. One side hates him for being a pathetic shadow of his former self, while the other loves him for being the most likable member of the modern Griffin family and for providing a good chunk of the series' humor.

I don't know what this thing is, and that terrifies me!

BaseBreakingCharacter.Pokemon was just made, and seems to list every single major character and has a lot of examples for minor characters/Pokemon that seem to be written at the time relevant episodes involving them were made.

[up]The page was just made, but it seems to have been a cut-and-paste from the already-written section in Pokémon Anime.

I need to think of a better signature.

I saw the YMMV page for the React series of web videos has a lot of examples for Base-Breaking Character. I find this a bit problematic, though, since these are not "characters", or even actors portraying characters, these are real life people. I feel like half this YMMV page is running afoul of troping real life people.

Some of these kids are also listed as being The Scrappy, which, again, is a CHARACTER trope, not a real life one. Besides, the reasoning is often rather petty. Troy is a "scrappy" because he does not want to see the Hobbit and has a moptop? Seriously?

When reading that page, it all sounds rather judgemental to me, especially since a lot of them are directed at young children who often lack the knowledge and perspective to know any better, or are just immature because, well, they are kids.

And then there are the shipping tropes. Of ACTUAL teens. Yeah, I'm nuking that, too.

Big Brother has a page and judging from the fact both MB and CM, and other tropes following suit, have decided to remove any tropes pertaining to real life people in the shows (Amazing Race and other Reality shows included) should we cut the page as it is troping real life people? It's also worth noting Big Brother also has a Scrappy section.

I think tropes that are about the show rather than it's participants can stay, but things like Scrappy should definitely be cut in my opinion.

Also, any form of shipping or Ho Jay or whathaveyou needs to go as well. It is creepy.

This was added to Mamako under Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?: There's also the fact that the entire novel and in-universe game were seemingly set up to be Mamako shills to the extreme. Even though she's already grossly powerful by default due to being a mom, anything and everything going on are seemingly rigged to skew sharply in her favor. If there are many moms on screen at once, Mamako will surely be the most powerful of them all and gets showered with freebies, while the others suffer from The Worf Effect, despite them blatantly cheating with third-party software. The game itself bends over backwards to make her more and more powerful with each passing chapter for absolutely no discernible reason, while constantly leaving her son and the rest of the party in the dust. She doesn't have to conform to any set of rules or mechanics while playing, and nobody, player or AI, will ever call her out on her Insane Troll Logic or the myriad of seemingly impossible feats she cluelessly achieves. And this is supposed to be a 30-something person whose gaming experience stops at the Famicom.

Delete it. Way too one-sided.
