It's in the crowner already. Mostly downvoted, admittedly, but it's there.

I voted up.

I asked this in ATT but decided to bring it up here before continuing with the TLP that splits the trope: Should Urban Legends be Trivia?

Most non-gameplay examples from Urban Legend of Zelda examples were moved there, but one is under Trivia and the other is Main.

Edit: I'll bring it up in TRS.

Many urban legends exist within a work, or are themselves very short, tropeable folklore. So not trivia.

I did like your idea of creating a new trivia trope for urban legends about works.

I've been told here and here that Divided for Adaptation is considered Trivia. I had crosswicked it some time ago, but stalled due to my uncertainty on whether it was a regular trope or it was Trivia.

The latter link told me that it's a Trope-Trope for the adaptation and a Trivia for the original work. So, can it be considered a Trivia trope nonetheless?

That's all there is. There isn't anymore. YOWZA!!!

It's not anything for the original work. It's the adaptation that's been divided.

It's not Trivia either; it's part of the work, not external to it.

Adaptation tropes are sort of a grey area where they are about both the content in a work and content external to it (the original work). There has been discussion to the contrary, but they are generally not considered trivia. If I had my way these would be listed as trivia (or not at all) on the original work page, and in the main example section on the adaptation page.

[up] I would agree with that, leaning heavily toward not listing it at all on the original work.

Yes, the only reason for tropes for an (official) derivative work to appear in the original work page (or non-trope subpages) is that the official derivative work does not yet have its own wiki page. (Derivative works not authorized by the Creator/estate shouldn't be troped/wicked on the original work pages except for fanficrecs.)

Why is Adaptational Context Change trivia? It's definitely something found within the work.

Also, is anything ever going to be done with this crowner? It's three years old.

[up]Agreed, most of the entries are done already (including Role Reprisal, which isn't marked as such), it needs a clean-up.

I would have added Character Outlives Actor to vote on already, but I'd rather see a cleared-up crowner first.

Dewey Defeats Truman and The Great Politics Mess-Up seems like trivia entries. The "tropes" here are that the author predicts something will happen in the future, and (surprise, surprise) said predicted thing doesn't actually happen. This isn't something the author intends on adding to their work, and it doesn't change the work if what they predicted actually does happen.

In this TRS thread, Role Reprisal was renamed to Role Reprise due to word misuse in the old name, so the TRS thread involves listing it under the new name in addition to moving it to Trivia.
