This template should not be substituted.

This template is for use in fiction-specific articles that have way too many trivial examples. (Ex.: For an article specifically about famous fictional horses that mentions that fact that Sesame Street once told kids how to spell horse, or that one of the animals you can kill in an online game is a horse.)
