• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

For starters, that's a girl. Her name is Ed. 'Cowboy' is slang for 'bounty hunter,' the profession of the Five-Man Band. The main character, Spike, is a man with black hair impossible to mistake for her. 'Bebop' is the name of the ship. In both cases, it's Bebop, not BeBop. There's only a monitor in that shot, and it's not the whole computer. There are two correct words in the image; 'At', and 'Bandai', which was the US distributor of the series.


 Knoll's Law of Media Accuracy: Everything you read in the newspapers is absolutely true except for that rare story of which you happen to have firsthand knowledge.


Sometimes, it seems, the entire process of fact-checking gets left out of the newsmaking process—specially when it comes to Those Damn Youngsters' Pop Culture.

Compare Complaining About Shows You Don't Watch, New Media Are Evil. (If you find yourself constantly annoyed by this kind of thing, you probably believe Old Media Are Evil).
