Category:Esoteric Trope Names
An index for trope names that are widely non-indicative to the general public. This includes not only neologisms of TV Tropes origin, but also industry jargon which is nevertheless largely unfamiliar to people outside the industry. If you think the common person on the street would not be able to guess anywhere close to its actual meaning, add it here.
Note that this category is functionally different from most others; it is not a means of sorting tropes, but instead acts as a kind of to-do list for us at All The Tropes. We want to open ourselves up to people interested in tropes, not create a private club with an elite knowledge base and lingo which discourages new people from joining, in much the way TV Tropes has done. To that end, we can debate over the clarity of tropes names that find their way into this category, and through consensus, judge whether they should be changed, or left alone. Even if they're left alone, Redirects are a Free Launch (although they're also a Free Delete if they aren't used).
