Because Call a Pegasus a "Hippogriff", is how we can involve Our Sirens Are Different when they're not called Sirens, but have basically everything else.
Like Sirens Are Mermaids, but generalized?

Are we ready to swap in the description?
I think the description's ready, yes.
Since there were no objections, I updated the description and I’m now in the process of moving everything to Our Sirens Are Different.
As a sidenote, does the trope really belong in the Villains index?
I would say no.
Ok, I removed it a while ago.
It seems we still need to finish updating the example list. Unless anyone has objections or further concerns, I can do it tomorrow morning.
Have anyone started on the "Siren's Song" draft? And do we actual examples of that that doesn't overlap wiht other tropes while we're at it?
If we don't have a sponsor, we can just yard it.
All right, since it seems like that's the last thing that needs doing I updated the example list on the main page to match the sandbox.
Apologies for the double post, but edits don't bump threads.
Since the bulk of the work is done and we all seem to be in agreement over the results, the only thing left to do is clean up the wicks and either replace or delete them as needed. I don't have time right now, but I can get started once I get home from work.
Enthralling Siren has 524 wicks.

Down to 400 wicks.
Down to 300.
After reading through the discussion I'm unclear as to why the Wonder Woman examples were removed. The reasoning behind the edit says examples were removed to fit the new trope description but both of were of enemies that were explicitly called sirens in the source material and were quite "different", with one having been forcibly transformed into a tree as punishment in antiquity and the other group being siren androids.
Could you link to the page and put removed examples here?
Not sure what page you want a link to, but both examples as originally written are:
The first one is a ZCE; it says that "sirens exist", but that's not enough context to count for these tropes.
Yeah, that one is pretty rubbish as is, how about a rewrite like...
Did some dewicking, just under 200 now.

How well does it match the trope?
