Not sure if it exactly fits the trope: In Sid Meiers Pirates, if your crew is sufficiently disgruntled, some of them will take off in one of your ships, with all its cargo.
What does "Wutai Theft" even refer to? Who is Wutai and what did they take?
I unspoilered the page quote because it's been bothering me for years, and I read up on Handling Spoilers, which states that spoilers should not be used above the example line at all.
Finding out that Alistair may leave the party in the end-game of Dragon Age: Origins is not really a big deal, because it's during the climax that all the drama happens, and party members leaving due to mistreatment is common in RPGs.
So there. I doubt anyone will read this, but I had to get it off my chest. If you insist on keeping it a secret, try to find another quote instead. :)
Could we expand this to include or make a new, related, trope for "Hello, and Thanks For All the Gear"? As defined by getting a new party member and allocating his good things to your main character and giving him you old things.
Removed that ^
The first time listed there is only for a few chapters, so it seems like its inclusion is somewhat tenuous to begin with. The second, however, is outright inaccurate. All of Shinon and Gatrie's gear gets deposited with your caravan upon their departure.
There is no such thing as tenuousity.
Odd, I could have sworn you kept Cecil's dark knight equipment even when he switches classes. I distinctly remember selling some Hades Armor and Shield. Maybe it's just in the DS version.
Is a halfassed HGTTG reference really 'better known' than a Final Fantasy 7 reference?
"So Long and Thanks for All" the fish. (Only the bit in quotes even applies to HGTTG. (I never knew HGTTG *had* a notable thief.)
'Wutai' Thief. (Simple If you get the 'reference', you know EXACTLY what the page is abo8ut.)
I posted that... just was having cookie problems earlier.
The idea was not that the reference would be better known, but that the trope is easily discernible from the trope name.
Even if you've never heard of H 2 G 2, you know what the trope name means. This isn't true of Wutai Theft and FF 7.
Frankly its a bad move. It's a lame rename of a trope everyone and their mom seems to be fine of. Don't say that "this is to help us understand the trope better." That's absolute bullpoop. 50% of the tropes here I find have similar stories to justify their trope names. Before TV Tropes ruined my life, I didn't know what Lampshade hanging was... by this logic we should change all of those references to something else.
Anyways this is a bad change.

How well does it match the trope?
