Can the Determinator giving up (usually as a sign of them crossing the Despair Event Horizon) fit into the description of this trope?

I thought we weren't supposed to abbreviate titles.

Abbreviating Out-Of-Character as OOC does nothing to detail what the trope is about on work's example list.

I agree. And why is it Oo *space* C? Shouldn't it be either Oo C (stupid wiki turns this into Oo C, but I typed it without the damned space...) or O o C? The "of" isn't attached to the "Out"... At least no more so than it would be attached to the "Character."

The Jesus clearing the temple entry: changing money and selling in the temple is specifically forbidden in the Old Testament, under the Mosaic Laws (which were still in effect until Jesus rose on the third day). The pharisees had also repeatedly been shown to be hypocrites and perfectly willing to break the laws they enforced on the rest of the Jews. So Jesus had reason to be a little peeved -the surprising part is he went rather farther then usual.

As for the fig tree, though Jesus used it in one of his teachings to the disciples later that day, I still find that confusing.

Wouldn't R2 of Code Geass count; specifically the scene (I believe episode 7) where Lelouch is about to inject himself with refrain - considering a few instances in the first season where he says he refuses to look back on the past, and now he's about to take a drug that specifically triggers a Lotus-Eater Machine effect on the user, making them relive their past. Luckily it was only his 10-Minute Retirement, and Kallen shows up before he can actually use the drug, but it was still saying something. To anyone who just read that spoilerific entry, I salute you.

The MLP:FiM fancomic example isn't really an example, seems like Square Peg, Round Trope to me.

JAFAAC because it needs the caption to complete the trope.
