I am curious about something. Does it count as this trope if they ARE villainous?
Nah, the Revolution we are talking here is usually the positively portrayed one, at least at the beginning.
Yes, but the key word is USUALLY. Also, several examples in here are clearly evil. One example is Bane and his revolution in The Dark Knight Rises: clearly evil revolutionaries.
I think this trope could also includes examples of evil revolutionaries.
Someone should add Libya to the Real-Life examples on this.
The current Revolution over there is NOT very Civil.
Very rare a revolution is, which is probably one of the reasons there's no Real Life section, better to not point fingers.
That post was years ago, but now, the trope is listed as No Real Life Examples, Please!.
Another case of cowardice... Just like bowing to Google.
Nothing to do with Google at all, actually.
The Iron Heel (literature) fits this to a "t". The socialists are basically locked in a murderous death grapple with the plutocratic authoritarian oligarchy. End result? Boot to the head, and lots of the death.
Exmaples are not a discussion thread in a forum. Point 0 from the Tips Worksheet:
"The idea is to make articles in Main look like they were written by the same person. A person with a good sense of humor, who doesn't talk about himself with 'I' or 'this troper', or get in arguments with himself, and who just corrects errors he might have made earlier without drawing attention to them. "
When replacing this on the main page, please unify the material into an example. Also: double star markup is not used for a paragraph break: see Example Indentation In Trope Lists. And we don't add paragraph breaks just beacuse it is a different author.
