Is there a name for the storyline trope where a character makes a fool of themselves either for the sake of the audience or other characters?
Kind of like an idiot plot... but not. It's not because they're dumb, but because having a reason to embarrass someone seems to be a plot point.
Anyway, I don't like it.
@levisan you mean like a in a zombie movie when they suddenly forget that only shots to the head and brain stem will kill it? Drives me nuts too, just feels contrived
