Follow TV Tropes
This Bait-and-Switch example looks dubious to me:
If the status quo is ultimately preserved, how are the promises that the game would change the status quo "true to a point", and not outright lies?
If it's outright lies then that should be moved to the Trivia section. I think there's an appropriate trope for it.
The closest I can get is Never Trust a Trailer (which is not trivia).
Another lie (that has not been mentioned on the work's TV Tropes pages yet): The EDGE review also claims that "Peach, for her part, is no helpless damsel, either." They "forget" that her role in the main game is a textbook example of a helpless Damsel in Distress. Her role in the post-game is pretty far from "badass" too.
Yeah, that journey around the world Peach did was very lackluster and far from proactive. She just stands in a specific place within the kingdom (and if it\'s a hard-to-reach place, we never see her getting there at all), says something dull and uninteresting, almost Captain Obvious, when talking to Mario, gives him a Power Moon and hints about her next destination. Her outfits (most of them too flamboyant and tacky for a \"girl who wants to explore the world\", not to mention unnecessary) don\'t help either, making her seem (at least to me) like a \"material girl\". If Peach was playable at least, it would\'ve been miles better.
So... Did anyone guess the Broodals had names before the game revealed them? I actually made up my own names for them. Who else did?
regarding spoilers: we should probably spoiler mark everything after the luncheon kingdom, since that's past what nintendo displays in previews. there's a lot of people adding unmarked spoilers and i think we should generally make sure we're being careful about that considering what a major game odyssey is
Pulled this example:
The sentences conflict each other, plus the link seems suspicious. It's a legit site, however many mainstream media outlets cited the news as "The theory about feathered T-rexes is dead" when it's more complicated than that (for example, one guess is that they had scaled feet but feathered bodies like birds).
Odyssey's T. rex has pronated hands and is (according to some paleo-buffs) shrink-wrapped, so it's still a case.
So, according to Nintendo, Mario doesn't possess enemies when he captures them, even though the fandom prefers to refer to it as "possessing". What trope does that count as?
That's strange.. it's close to possession still, so.. maybe a possession trope that's not quite possession?
Maybe a forced Heel Face Turn?
Looks like more of an Insistent Terminology thing, because you know, hat puns. Still possession.
Okay, what is the title of the theme song and where are you guys getting your sources? I've seen 'Let's do the Odyssey', '1-Up Girl', and now 'Jump Up, Super Star.'
It comes from the offficial Super Mario Odyssey japanese twitter:
ポリーン市長の趣味は歌うこと。この歌「Jump Up, Super Star！」も、ポリーン市長が歌っているんだとか！？
This entry was added to YMMV:
I removed it because Expy is not YMMV. Though I do find it to be a dubious example. It seems like another case where someone notices vague similarities between characters and calls it an Expy.
Yeah, Expies and Shout-Outs have to be deliberate.

How well does it match the trope?
