Removed from description: "The ancient phrase for this trope is sui generis, roughly "a thing that defines its own category"."
No, if that phrase applied on this level, the trope would be Single Specimen Species. There's only one of a sui generis thing, that's the point. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure.
If you need to ask why, you haven't read and comprehended the trope definition.
Something that is technically an "inversion" that just has nothing to do with the dynamics of this trope, aversion (most beings don't have their kind named after them, so why would that be worth mentioning?), and then something about another "dog named dog" with an unexplained claim that it could be an in-universe example.
I take offense to that on part of Pippin.
