Isn't this written in kind of an anime/Japanese video game specific way? How is it ironic that "this trope has completely American roots"?

Removed to be hashed out in discussion:

  • Actually, Donkey Kong averts this trope. Jumpman can just barely jump high enough to clear a barrel rolling on its side, and if he falls more than the height of his sprite, he dies.
    • Except that the barrels are nearly as wide as he is tall; Jumpman's standing jump clears his shoulders. Perhaps not as impressive as later examples, but as the earliest of the jumping protagonists, he clearly set the standard.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

How well does it match the trope?
