Linking to a past Trope Repair Shop thread that dealt with this page: Am I the only one confused by this trope?, started by nrjxll on Feb 28th 2011 at 1:44:50 AM
What is the precise definition of this trope, and how is it differentiated from Mooks?
I think this comic is more to-the-point than the image being used for the page right now. I don't know how to switch them.

A comment should be made in the description that this page is for aversions or lampshade hangings, as that's what, well, pretty much every single example on here (including the quote and image) are.
I'm going to add in a comment that "Mooks being mowed down in droves by heroes is simply part of the definition of Mook, this page is for lampshades, aversions, or subversions of the concept" is no one has issue with it.
"Think about it first, if the Final Boss isn't treated any better than the mooks, then is the series an example that deserves mention?"
This is actually closer to What Measure Is A Not Human.
Alles In De Soep: No real life examples?
Is it so bad for heroes to defend themselves if the mooks try to kill them first?
It's about the difference in the treatment of mooks and "named" antagonists. That typically mooks may be mowed preemptively while villain after several mass murders should be captured with risk to the hero and bystanders is one of results.
