If you want you could start a thread in Short-Term Projects but we might need some more input before a thread is agreed to be started. What does everyone else think?

I'd be down for that. Honestly, there are a lot of examples that feel incredibly shoehorned in (the one that sticks out to me is one saying that Light Yagami's Kira thing is essentially a Scheherezade Gambit), but I never feel comfortable taking them down because I don't want to cause an edit war - plus, it is YMMV, so I guess if someone believes it, it's fair game. I'd welcome a cleanup effort - honestly, a long-term thread wouldn't be a terrible idea

^^ Honestly I think it's more of a long-term thing, similar to other highly misused tropes and YMMV items that will always be shoehorned onto work pages.

^ Yeah, that's why I think a cleanup thread would work - to get input from other fans.
