Verbal irony[ edit ] This is the simplest form of irony, in which the speaker says the opposite of what he or she intends. There are several forms, including euphemismunderstatementsarcasmand some forms of humor. For example, in Steinbeck's novel The Pearl, one would think that Kino and Juana would have become happy and successful after discovering the "Pearl of the World", with all its value. However, their lives changed dramatically for the worse after discovering it.

The Terminator films fall into this trope; in the original movieall of the T model Terminators looked and even smelled like different people, in order to infiltrate human bunkers and get past sentry-dogs ; but in the sequels, somehow all of the T Terminators look like Arnold — despite that this defeats the entire premise of organic cyborg-Terminators, since the humans would only need to watch out for anyone who looks like Arnold.
The original movie even showed this; the T Terminator shown in the original flashback-scene was played by bodybuilder Franco Columbu. The best way to explain this is that all Ts are the same basic endoskeletonwhile the model numbers Arnold's Terminator identifies himself as model refer to the external appearance.
So, all s resemble Arnold Schwarzeneggerwhile s resemble someone else. This explains Franco Columbu, who has the same basic endo-skeleton, but is essentially a different sub-model.
This is explicitly described in the beginning of the novelization for Terminator 2: Judgment Daywhere future John Connors looks for the right model of T to send into the past. Back to the Future: The same goes for his nemesis, Biff Tannen.

Hard Luck, this trope happens to Greg and his uncle Terrace. Bloodlinethe maker of the Lament Configuration and two of his descendants are played by the same actor. They're at least four generations apart each.
Sunshine does a triple whammy, with three generations of sons from a Hungarian family each being played by Ralph Fiennes with varying amounts of facial hair. Although they both look pretty different. To be fair his son did have gold skin and lacked the facial hair of his daddy.
Otherwise, his physique is exactly what Beowulf's was like when he was younger y'know, when he isn't all scaly and firebreathing. Rincon de Luz is a prequel to the TV series, showing the creation of the Rincon de Luz orphanage in the 19th century.
