I am going to use this thread for a while to improve my grammar in the tvtropes website until I am eligible to edit again, here are the tropes that I want to edit and hope that my grammar has improved

For Mob Psycho 100

  • Decoy Protagonist: The series starts off in the 1st chapter with con man Reigen trying to exorcise the evil spirit with his fake psychic power, which ends up in failure. He instead calls his assistant Shigeo "Mob" Kagayama, who has real Psychic powers, to help him. The narrator lampshades it.

Narrator: This boy's name is Shigeo Kagayama aka Mob and he's an assistant of Arataka Reigen, He's a real Psychic and also the hero of this story.

For Halloween III: Season of the Witch

  • Ambiguous Ending: We are not sure if Daniel has succeeded in convincing every television station to not air the Silver Shamrock commercial or not.

For Soylent Green

  • Ambiguous Ending: It is unknown if Thorn convinces the police chief and everyone else that Soylent Green is made of people.

For The Wonderful World of Puss 'n Boots

  • Bookends: Both the beginning and end of the movie have Pero chased by three bumbling assassins from his home village.

  • Here We Go Again!: At the end of the film, where Pero leaves Pierre to live Happily Ever After with the princess, he is once again chased by the assassins from his home village, just like the start of the movie.

For Cells at Work!

  • Mercy Kill: A very bitter one in the HIV special chapter, focusing on a different Helper T commander and the Killer T squad leader in a different body, who were best friends back in Thymus School. An HIV invades the human body and infects most of the Helper T cells, including the commander, turning them into mindless zombies that can't deploy the Killer T cells to help out the other cells battling against the invading mold. However, with the help of anti-HIV medicines, the Killer T squad leader captures the infected Helper T cells and gives the main Helper T commander a chance to release the Killer T cells under an emergency command to take down the molds. But when the Killer T squad leader is checking on his friend, he too is infected by the HIV and begin to attack him, but when he regains control for a few seconds, the Helper T commander allows his good friend the Killer T squad leader to finish him off.

For Kamen Rider: Skyrider

For °Mucha Lucha!

  • We Want Our Jerk Back!: In the episode "Flea's Bueno Twin", The flea eats a shiny fresh apple that transforms him into an opposite version of himself whose costume is white and clean and who will respect and help others in need. However, The Flea has begun to criticize the imperfect conditions of the Foremost World-Renowned International School of Lucha, along with most of the students who are considered slackers and cause tardiness. He thinks of improving it and even changes the Code of Masked Wrestling to make it better, which puts a lot of pressure on Bueno Girl. When the Flea has suggested that lucha wrestling matches should end in a tie so that everyone will be neither winners nor losers, which will, to quote Ricochet, "Eliminate wrestling from masked wrestling", this is the last straw for Bueno Girl. She picks up a stale doughnut from the garbage can and throws it on the Flea's mouth, reverting him back to his disgusting but lovable self again.

For Overshadowed by Controversy / Live-Action TV

  • Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger: Zyuoh Elephant's actor Tsurugi Watanabe was riding a bike when he accidentally hit a woman who is also riding a bike with her two daughters. He later got help, told the police about the incident and apologized to the woman and her daughters, who were injured but safe, but the damage was done. This is one of the main reasons why the crossover film with the Kyurangers never happened.

  • Kamen Rider Hibiki: The series is known for its Troubled Production in the 2nd half due to Executive Meddling by the higher ups because of poor toy sales.

For Overshadowed by Controversy / Live-Action Films

  • American Made: Similar to the "Twilight Zone: The Movie" incident, a plane crash on the set of the movie in Colombia on September 11, 2015 killed two people and injured another member of the crew.

For Overshadowed by Controversy / Real Life

  • Hollywood movie star Tom Cruise has been criticized for his involvement with the Church of Scientology.

For Phil of the Future

  • End-of-Series Awareness: In the series finale called "Back to the Future (not the movie)" , Lloyd finally fixes the time machine just as Phil and Keely are about to become a couple and a law in the future called "Thanks to the Diffy's" is approved to apply restrictions on time travel that reflect on the cancellation of the series.

For Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger

  • How We Got Here: In the 1st half of the movie The Heart Pounding Circus Panic, after being rescued by Misao from the lake, Yamato explains how he got washed up on shore.

For Bolivian Army Ending

  • The final chapter of Go Nagai's 1970s manga series Gakuen Taikutsu Otoko (aka Guerilla High) has some of the main characters face their last stand against the brainwashed students of Chimidoro.

For KikaiSentaiZenkaigerEp35TheBrightnessOfADiamondKai

  • Enslaved Tongue: Daiya Wald has zapped the Kikainoid Zenkaigers to only say "diamond" until his defeat by Twokaizer.

For Live-Action Cartoon

  • Parker Lewis Can't Lose is considered as one. Because the show is known for its surreal elements, breaks the fourth wall and even a huge character like Larry who can almost eat anything.

  • Kirby Buckets is known for this, The series starts off with mundane elements with a kid and his imaginary drawings going on various adventures, but during the 2nd season fantasy elements like ghosts, future selves and even screwball elements begin to appear, and the final season entitled "Warped" maximize this trope Up to Eleven when it involves the Dimensional Traveler trope.

For Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: Gaburincho of Music

  • Musical Episode: The main trope of this movie, where different songs with lyrics are mostly heard in the background and some of the scenes have the characters break out and sing.

Trent sarcastically suggests just throwing the challenge...

...performed decently in the only episode she competed in despite annoying her teammates...

P.S.: Arivne, why was wrong "along with Trent" when in the previous example you corrected "along with LeShawna" without parentheses?

^ The original quotes are:

  • He, alongside LeShawna, comforts
  • She, along with Trent, comforts

^ The problem with both of these is that, because of the way you wrote them, it isn't clear whether they should be considered plural or not and whether the verb should be "comfort" (for plural) or "comforts" (singular). I was tempted to change the first one to make it clear, but let it slide. The second time, I changed it so the subject-verb agreement would be correct.

You can read more about subject-verb agreement here.

It would have been easier to re-write them as "He and LeShawna comfort" and "She and Trent comfort", but in each case you added more information about only what the first person did, which made it impossible to re-write them that way.

Hi fellas. It's me again. Let's have another try.

Character tropes for Despair Island:

  • Ambiguously Gay: Unlike canon, Owen doesn't have any romantic interactions with Izzy (who isn't transferred from the Killer Bass and is the first executed camper) and makes some explicitly suggestive comments about Justin like that he "is good in bed" or that his "buns are firm". He also finds Cody's attraction to his female teammates "weird".
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Despite the realistic and serious nature of this Dark Fic, Harold does this before the talent show challenge by pointing out that there's a "continuity error" when Chris asks the campers if they have noticed the amphitheater that's near to the dodgeball court, satirizing the fact that both locations were never shown in the canon series premiere and that the dodgeball court was never seen again afterwards.
  • Condescending Compassion: Upon arriving to the island, she assures the present contestants that once she wins, she will make sure to give them a nice memorial service, leading DJ and Beth to break down in tears and pissing Gwen and Geoff off.

P.S.: Thanks Arivne for the clarification.

@Arivne When I say "reflexion", I said that in the sense of thinking, not "reflection" in the sense of reflecting something like a mirror. Or maybe the word "reflexion" doesn't exist in English? It's not my first language so I sometime get a bit confused.

Here are a few tropes I want to try adding to the The New Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh S 4 E 4 The Good The Bad And The Tigger page...

  • Banana Peel: This is how Tigger is able to destroy the crudely-reconstructed train and save Sheriff Piglet, by having the train slip on the peel and end up crashing (again).

  • Just Train Wrong: This is Played for Laughs in the show's usual fashion...
    • Rabbit and Tigger invoke this in the opening scene...
      Tigger: Say, where's the propeller on this thing?
      Rabbit: Tigger, trains don't have propellers. Although it does seem to be missing its rudder...
    • In the Western fantasy, the tender seems to lack a water tank, and Tigger can walk through the whole train even though it includes a boxcar. And the locomotive comes equipped with a brake pedal like an automobile would have. Then again, as Pooh puts it, "It's a fantasy."

  • Limited Sound Effects: That Stock Sound Effect of a Bomb Whistle (originally a Hanna-Barbera effect) is heard seven times in the first act alone, and it gets pretty repetitive.

  • Non-Fatal Explosions: The train violently blows up among colliding with Sheriff Piglet's handcar, but nobody is even hurt in the explosion, let alone killed.

  • Recycled Soundtrack: Some music originally written for "Paw and Order" gets reused during the Western fantasy.

  • Runaway Train: Much of the Western fantasy in the first act plays this trope out, along with part of the second act when Tigger attempts to Resurrect the Wreck. But since this is Winnie the Pooh, Hilarity Ensues, and nobody gets hurt when the train eventually crashes (twice).

  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: By the end of the Western fantasy, Sheriff Piglet is saved and lets Tigger off with a warning, but the train has been completely destroyed once again. (Fortunately, Christopher Robin's toy train is just fine in reality.)

(BTW, I noticed that page is full of English and grammatical errors, but of course they weren't my doing!)

@ Final Destination

  • When the remaining survivors make their second visit to the memorial for the plane crash victims, a distraught Carter carves his late girlfriend Terry's name onto the memorial plaque, emphasizing how even though she and the others got off the plane, they're still dying because of the crash.
  • Wendy's realization that her younger sister is also on Death's list makes her even more pitiful, when she's already a strong contender for the biggest woobie in the series.
@ Final Destination
  • In 2, Clear has managed to escape from Death for an entire year and gets some impressive Action Survivor moments. This is best shown with the nonchalant way that she dodges a falling canoe at the culmination of a Rube Goldberg Device and then says "Should've seen that coming."
  • 4 has a couple of moments, despite its Sequelitis status.
    • Lori and George's Big Damn Heroes moment at the car wash. Once Janet's neck is stuck in the malfunctioning sunroof, George drives his car into Janet's car so it won't keep taking her closer to death. Lori then climbs onto the roof of her car and manages to get Janet out before she can be killed by a falling pipe.
    • Nick manages to stop a fire from destroying the movie theater while one of his arms is nailed to the wall. Granted, that was part of Death's plan all along, but it's still surprisingly impressive for a character who most people view as The Scrappy.
    • One Deleted Scene has Janet testing whether Death is still after the group by walking across a busy intersection without looking,
  • The first movie, 2, and 4 all have some cool, albeit brief, scenes of characters who believe in the impending disaster working to eliminate all of the dangerous objects in the rooms that they're in to elude Death (putting tape around scissors, etc.)
  • The bridge disaster in 5 not only has some Visual Effects of Awesome, but also has the victims in Sam's vision make pretty game efforts to survive the disaster.
    • With a little prompting from Sam, Molly manages to make it over the collapsed section of the bridge by walking along a narrow support beam, making her the only significant character not to die in the vision of the disaster. Then, rather than go next himself, Sam helps Olivia (who's lost her glasses) get onto the beam while giving her directions and reassurances (although she fails to make it across). In a Deleted Scene, Sam also helps two extras get across between Molly and Olivia. Molly also gets points for remaining on the unstable bridge to try and help Olivia and Sam rather than running to safety.
    • As the section of the bridge that they're on collapses, Sam and Peter manage to leap to near-safety and grab a piece of railing dangling from the other side. If not for some falling debris, they would have survived without Sam's vision and never been on Death's list.

@ Cheating Death: Those That Lived

  • Break the Haughty: Olga spends most of the story as a ruthless fanatic who turns up her nose at the outlier districts, defends the Capitol's evil acts, and can't stand it when anyone defies her. The final chapters reveal that she's been left a broken, weeping shell who's fully aware of how she wasted her life in the service of evil, a realization that is driven in when she learns that the Games staff have often rigged the Games against the tributes Olga devoted her life into making loyal volunteers because they find that rigid loyalty boring.
  • Wham Line: The party of the surviving victors seems like just a nice way of revealing who's still alive and what they'll do next. Then President Paylor drops this bombshell.
    Paylor: We are going to have a revote. A continuation of Coinís prosal. Should there be a Hunger Games with Capitol children?
@ Seinfeld
  • In "The Lip Reader," Jerry and George have a conversation about using Jerry's deaf girlfriend to spy on their friends with her lip reading skills. They work hard to keep their mouths covered throughout the conversation to avoid offending her, but she's still able to make out what they were saying. And then she agrees to help without missing a Beat.
  • Sidra's ad-liibbed parting zinger at Jerry when they break up, after she finds out that he's been trying to find out for the whole episode if her breasts are real.
    Sidra: Oh, by the way - they're real, and they're spectacular.
  • It is based on a misunderstanding, but in "The Shower Head," Peterman boldly throws Kramer out of his office after thinking that he's trying to buy drugs from Elaine before giving her a speech urging her to admit that she has a problem and get help for it, and then temporarily firing her when she continues to deny using drugs.
  • In "The Foundation," there's the scene where Kramer gets beat up by all of the elementary schoolers from his karate class to get revenge for his mistreatment of them. It's also implied that they are emboldened by seeing Elaine angrily shove Kramer to the ground after she found out that he gave her life-altering advice based on a Star Trek quote.

@ Ash vs. Evil Dead

  • Moe
    • Heather, due to her innocent facial expressions, Humble Goal, Trauma Conga Line suffering, and the way she flirts with Pablo at first but is quick to back off when she thinks he has a girlfriend.
    • Tanya from the last two episodes of season 2, due to her Meganekko appearance and her earnest, yet socially awkward demeanor.

Hi fellas. It's me again. Let's have another try.

Character tropes for Despair Island:

She then states in her confessional that she didn't only defend Gwen out of kindness, but because she honestly believes that someone who stayed awake nearly forty hours doesn't deserve to be voted off.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Despite getting along with Anne Maria due to her take-no-prisoners attitude, Jo starts hating her once Anne Maria accuses her from being a "cruddy leader" after the Killer Grips lost two challenges in a row.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Despite getting along with Joe due to her take-no-prisoners attitude, Anne Maria accuses her from being a "cruddy leader" after the Killer Grips lost two challenges in a row, leading Jo to instantly hate her.

Unsupervised:

The Ghost: Russ's cruel brother is alluded to in multiple episodes but is never shown.

Invisible Parents: All of the main characters fit this trope, but this is a key plot detail of the lives of Gary and Joel.

I Just Wantto Have Friends: Russ's reason for joining in on the gang's schemes.

Heterosexual Life-Partners: Joel and Gary.

Little Mosque on the Prairie:

The Friend Nobody Likes: Baber fits into this trope owing to the proximity reason. He's a member of the congregation and the show's warmth comes from being celebratory to the congregation so this tension is mostly played for laughs.

Basement-Dweller: Subverted. Rayan is extremely well-adjusted, self-assured, and professionally successful.

Saved by the Bell:

Friends Turned Romantic Rivals: Zach Morris and A.C. Slater over Kelly Kapowski.

American Crime Story Impeachment:

Good Cop/Bad Cop: Emmick is the more reasonable voice during the 12-hour interrogation while Bennett is adamant that he's not playing around.

California Doubling: The show is very specific to Washington D.C. and virtually all of it was shot in California.

Also, kindly let me know how to insert in the code for show titles and how long you recommend the entries be. If I just list the names like Saved by the Bell or Heterosexual Life Partners is that sufficient?

    • Rabbit and Tigger invoke this in the opening scene when they notice Christopher Robin's toy train lacks a propellor and rudder.
    • In the Western fantasy, the tender seems to lack a water tank. Tigger can walk through the whole train even though it includes a boxcar, and the locomotive comes equipped with a brake pedal like an automobile would have. Then again, as Pooh puts it, "It's a fantasy."

  • Non-Fatal Explosions: The train violently blows up while colliding with Sheriff Piglet's handcar, but nobody is even hurt in the explosion, let alone killed.

  • Runaway Train: Much of the Western fantasy in the first act plays this trope out when Tigger and Pooh end up unable to control or stop the train as it keeps going faster. This also happens for part of the second act when Tigger attempts to Resurrect the Wreck, only for his crude reconstruction to start speeding through town on its' own and wreak havoc. But since this is Winnie the Pooh, Hilarity Ensues, and nobody gets hurt when the train eventually crashes (twice).

  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: By the end of the Western fantasy, Sheriff Piglet is saved and lets Tigger off with a warning, but the train has been completely destroyed once again (Fortunately, Christopher Robin's toy train is just fine in reality).

Thanks @Arivne. I doubt it's enough to get me out of suspension, but it counts.
