Follow TV Tropes
Quite a number of examples seem to be just "the number 3 appears in this work" or "something is done 3 times" rather than being true examples of this trope.
If nobody minds, I'm going to bookmark this page and do some pruning on it occasionally.
I, for one, would very much enjoy you doing that. This trope is waaay out of control.
(Summon Bigger Fish, at least, stays contained in its own page...)
This is listed under Self-Demonstrating Article, but I don't see how it is one.
Then remove it. =)
The page quote doesn't have a source—it looks like a troper just made it up. (The only Bing hit for the quote is the TVTtropes page. I'm going to replace it with Lewis Carrol's "What I tell you three times is true" from Snark—is that okay?
"This Youtube video." Entry from Real Life.
The video that it led to has been removed due to repeated third-party copyright infringement.
Since it seems unlikely an acceptable substitute for the entry can be found, I removed it.
"The Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The first sometimes is represented by an eye set in a triangle."
If you read the King James, the New International, or the New World translations, none of them actually use the word 'trinity'. The Holy Spirit is represented more as a active force of Jehovah God rather then independent entity in its own right.
I didn't change it because I wasn't sure which one was the right one to delete, but the Harry Potter example repeats the three hallows

How well does it match the trope?
