Follow TV Tropes
Wikipedia link is dead. Since Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo is notable in my book (albeit only for starting the Electric Boogaloo thing), I'll go ahead and follow up on their side. Hopefully it just got deleted by a bot or something.
Oop! Our link was wrong. Fixing.
Well, I kind of fixed it. Wikipedia's link uses an apostrophe, which means I don't know how to make the link work in TV Tropes. So I just linked to our own article, which was the Trope Namer anyways.
Aside from Boogaloo, another name I see as shorthand for a sequel is "The Quickening". Like Highlander 2.
This article is starting to drift away from naming oddly named sequels and just going into listing any sequel that has a subtitle.
I do feel like forcing this to fall under Self-Demonstrating Article is a little much. Just leaving it as Oddly Named Sequel gets the point across just fine.
I'm really not sure whether examples like Dirty Harry or James Bond fit the trope. The different installments don't have a common theme at all, so the sequel names stand on their own and do not need to somehow be related to the first one.
Nor do the Burton/Schumacher Batman movies. None of them are numbered, and they have a consistent theme in their titles ("Batman Something-or-other"). Although the Nolan movies could qualify, but only when compared to the Burton/Schumacher movies.
In fact, I'm going to edit all these.
