A lot of examples here were just elves being wrong about something. This trope isn\'t Elves Are Imperfect; it\'s about someone specifically calling them out for being stuck-up, arrogant douchebags (i.e., Can\'t Argue With Elves).
Added a clarification to the trope description, restating it and underlining that \"in this tabletop game, elves aren\'t arrogant!\" or \"the game designers didn\'t make elves perfect!\" are NOT examples.
Regarding the Asari in Mass effect, and the spoiler That they were severly helped by the Protheans in their evolution, up to the point of being subject of genetic experiments to make them natural biotics, and all their technology being given to them by the Protheans...
Is it a case of a subversion, or something else to consider, the fact that Javik also says that they specifically chose the Asari because their virtues of Patience and Wisdom being "evident" to their eyes? I mean, there is also evidence that the Protheans had also looked at Humans and other races, but they still chose the Asari
Alternatively, it may have also been Javik might just be a huge jerk trying to get rid of her?
i would like to remove the berserk example,this trope is about magical creatures being arrogant jerks and getting their payback,puck was merely trying to act as guts`s conscience.
Putting this here:
How exactly are these not examples? The reason given for them being cut is that they're "irrelevant", so could someone please explain why?
Dausuul: Removed the following from the Avatar entry:
I agree completely. This is clearly a case of You Fail History Forever anyway. Natives traded a lot with europeans which was in some cases mutually beneficial, douchebaggery was committed by both sides (more by europeans, but still), and the main (though by no means sole) factor in their decline was the mostly unintentional transmission of alien diseases.
