Well, they're neither of those, but there is no generic "Needs Help."
The issue is, there are two images.
Those images used to be in their respective sections below the introductory paragraph, but at some point they were moved to the top of the page. If we choose to just use two images to make one two-panel image, I'd go with the 40K Orks and the Warcraft orc.
Same, I think that'd be the cleanest setup.
As long as the Space Marine orcs are kept, any combo is fine.
Sure, let's go with this.
This needs to show the classic/Tolkien orc to indicate what "our orcs" are different from.
(edit) yes, that

This thread is fitting for Orc-tober, I can say.
I would suggest a collage of the four images to portray both the Tolkien and Blizzard type orcs.
Merge them into one image. How would it look in a 2x2 arrangement?
I used a couple of new images for a collage:

I'd prefer that without the footnote. Nice collage though!
to the collage minus the note.
I find it unclear. Is it supposed to be a comparison between «normal» orcs and different orcs?
The trope is a subtrope of Our X Are Different, a set of tropes that describes how X things are portrayed in media. The trope description emphasizes the two main types, but the trope basically applies to any depiction of or orcs. The ones in the image look quite diverse, so it's a good picture even if it's not 100% clear which main category each of them belongs.
So, any orcs in media? Huh?
Yeah. How are they the same as the "average"? How are they different? That's how that family of tropes works.
~Delibirda: To be clear, the Our Monsters Are Different pages are not "[fantastic species] exists in this work". It's "these fantastic species have long histories in media and various myths/stories surrounding them, so here is how this specific work portrays them. What traits did they take from other works/traditions, and which ones did they pretty much invent?". For a good example of what we are going for with that collage, look at Our Vampires Are Different: it covers "classic Dracula type", "pretty boy Twilight type", "cute anime girl type", and more.
That said, top right and bottom left look a little interchangeable to me; maybe the Gamorreans of Star Wars for another live-action take?
There's one notable exception though, which is Our Dwarves Are All the Same.
That's because dwarves have a tendency to follow a single stereotype. Yet if a dwarf is not like that, it would make it into that trope as a subversion.
I know. I'm basically just rambling off-topic now. Let's stick to the main topic, huh? How's the picture in 9 look?
9 looks good to me.
Would it help to delineate the Tolkienesque and revisionist orcs in the caption?
I think it would, and maybe separate them with a black line? 9 otherwise.

How well does it match the trope?
