At the TRS thread for Administrivia.Definition Only Pages, it was discovered that Fan Dumb has many off-page wicks, despite being a Flame Bait page. Per our policy on Flame Bait, Flame Bait tropes may be linked to on indexes and trope descriptions, but may not be linked in any off-page example lists or work descriptions. They may have on-page examples unless they are also Definition-Only Pages.

I suspect that there may be illegal wicks to the other Flame Bait pages. They will have an orange flame icon on pages other than tropes.

Okay, under A Lighter Shade of Black:

  • The Tau were basically created to be this trope, despite Fan Dumb forcing them to get darker since their introduction. It says a lot about the state of the universe where the race with a "communist manifest destiny" motif, who openly seek to conquer the universe and make all other races part of their empire, who resort to violence if their efforts to subsume other races diplomatically fail, and who are implied (in a comment of dubious canonicity) to set up concentration camps and forced sterilization programs for races who resist, are still relatively good guys.

There's also a Copy Cat Sue wick on Sonichu's page.
