You'll see this word used often, way too often, on this very wiki. [[HypocriticalHumor Egregiously used]], you could say. It's almost as if people are looking for reasons to put it in, as if it were the trigger for some kind of pleasurable behavior. The word itself has become a DiscreditedMeme, as more instances of its use are linked to this page.

[[DrinkingGame/TVTropesWiki Now drink up]]! It will help you think of a ''better'' way to say something is less than perfect. For example, notice how the article you are reading has not used that term to describe the over-wrought, clichéd, mind-numbingly bland, atrocious, annoying use of this stilted, just-plain-busted word.

You'll see this word used often on this very wiki. [[RunningGag Repeatedly used]], you could even say (and [[SelfDemonstratingArticle egregiously]] at that). It's almost as if people are looking for reasons to put it in, as if it were the trigger for some kind of pleasurable behavior. The word itself has become a somewhat DiscreditedMeme, as more instances of its use are linked to this page than not. [[DrinkingGame/TVTropesWiki Now drink up]]!

Perhaps people want to look learned or perhaps it's just a really fun word to say. Go ahead, try it! So, instead of saying "[[WordCruft This series is a particularly bad example in that...]]", you get "This series is particularly egregious in that..." (Note that the usage is usually correct according to the dictionary definition, although "particularly" is redundant, even weakening.) Alternatively, it's a way of using an UnusualEuphemism.

It is also used to mean "notable" on Wiki/TVTropes and point out the examples the editing {{troper}} knows as one of the rules is Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability.
