* Example from a Creator/WilliamShakespeare play which prompts TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples to be mentioned.
** Mention of said law. AccidentlyRedlinkedByMispelling.



* Example after example about ''Obscure Anime [[NoExportForYou That Was Never Released Outside Japan]]''.
** One of which is so laden with fanspeak as to be practically in Japanese itself.



* Three and a half pages of {{Anime}} examples that you just scroll right on by because you've never heard of any of them.



* Example from ''RedlinkedShowOfWhichYouHaveHeard''.
* A bunch of ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' examples.

** Example from yet another Discworld book that has more to do with one of the previous Discworld examples than it actually does this trope.
* Example of LampshadeHanging, [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], and/or {{deconstruction}} from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''.



* Example from a "[[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotRecent recent]]" arc of a webcomic that's been around for 8 years doing five updates a week, so the archive is huge, and since the example is so far up the page it's long ago fallen off the edit page, there's no way to tell when "recent" was.



* Example from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', with mention of how it happened in a manner that was awesome.
** Another example from ''TropeOverdosed: The Series'', indented, and perhaps directly addressing the last one, but separated from it because some other Troper added an example in between for whatever reason.
** Example from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', with mention of how the ending was an AssPull.



* Example from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''
** Yet another example from the TropeOverdosed series that's here because the person who added the above example wasn't really paying attention to what he was doing.

* Example from [[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]], but the title of which prompts you to look it up on Google or TheOtherWiki.



* Example of mocking the trope in a ''{{Series}}: TheAbridgedSeries''.



* Example from Phoenix Wright: Justice for All.
** [[spoiler:Spoiler from Apollo Justice because you should have known better than to read a completely spoilered out sentence yet you read it anyway because it was fairly long and you thought it was going to be about the subject at hand and not an example from a different game that might have been an useless spoiler to mention to begin with, which prompts you to inmmediatly scroll down after reading the first line in order to forget about the spoiler. Also, while we're at it, spoiler from Dual Destinies.]]
* Example from some redlinked anime called [[{{donotuse}} Nipponisu no Serizu Neemu Disupeto Puresenssu wa Taitoru no Ingurisu]], the title of which you can't make heads or tails of because you don't know Japanese, peppered with mentions of seemingly every single UsefulNotes/AnimeFanspeak trope for added confusion.
** Complaint that you can't make head or tails of the above because you don't know Japanese.
*** Natter about how it's Romaji, not actual Japanese.
*** Natter about capitalization of Romaji.
* Example from some redlinked anime called [[{{donotuse}} Akushuarii Engurisshu Taitoru]], the title of which you can't make heads or tails of because you don't know Japanese, but which you would immediately recognise had the person adding the example deigned to write the title in English, not English-turned-katakana-turned-romanized-katakana.



* Example from PaulRobinson claiming that the trope is represented in his non-existent novel ''InstrumentOfGod''.
-->Two-kilobyte block of text alleged to be a quote from ''InstrumentOfGod'' which doesn't really seem to have any particular relevance to the trope, or, really, anything else for that matter.



* Another Music/RedHousePainters example posted by Tonagamu... and you don't care because you haven't heard of Red House Painters.

* FanFiction example of this trope, supposedly not one written by the editor writing this example.

* Obligatory ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' reference, and a full description of the quadrants.
** Along with a bulleted argument about Vriska.
*** Or just repeated HONK honk HONK's
* '''[[HotBlooded OVERLY HYPED BOLDED, BLUE TEXT EXAMPLE, NEVER WITH ANY EXPLANATION, AND ALWAYS WITH GRATUITOUS EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]]'''

** Remark that it becomes even worse if you consider the UnfortunateImplications this carries.



* Obligatory [[Anime/{{Monster}} Johan]] reference.
** Firm assertion that '''Johan is this trope'''.



* Example from a popular WebComic you should read but don't because it is [[ArchivePanic absurdly]] [[LongRunner long]] and you don't want to go on an ArchiveBinge, including several references to how amazing the web comic is.



* Example from an episode of a TV show which just aired, even though there is already an entry for the same series up above.
* Example from a WebComic so obscure that you get the feeling that it was added by the [[TroperWorks comic's author]].

* The same example from an episode of a TV show which just aired, even though there are already an entry for the same seres up above AND the new exmaple already exits if the editor were to move his eyeballs by three inches. [[spoiler: Usually full of spoiler tags and ]]spelling erors because [[spoiler: the editor was trying to be the first person to post the example]].

* Example with [[strike: Alicia]] ''Alice'' and Bob, from Television Show, which was [[strike: canceled]] un-canceled after this example was written, but this is the next editor's favorite show, so everything must be crossed out instead of just corrected. This of course looks incredibly silly since strikethrough doesn't even exist anymore.
'''Alice''': Quote that is formatted
-->wrong

** Also [[http://badlink here/040506]], but when you translate the date to the new format, there's no obvious connection.
** And [[http://badlink here/3258693j]], with an outdated link that does not contain the date.

* Historical example that is now found not to be true.
* Example that doesn't quite fit the trope.
** That would be more an example of [[NextTrope some other trope]], then.

** MeToo! Lengthy personal anecdote.

* Inarguably correct example of trope
** Followed by someone arguing.

* Example that's exactly the same as the one above it.
* Example that's exactly the same as the one above it.
* Example that fits better in a SubTrope.
** Pointing out that it "also" fits into [[SubTrope subtrope]].

* The same example from an episode of a TV show which just ared, even though there are already an entry for the same seres up above AND the new exmaple already exits if the editor were to move his eyeballs by three inches. [[spoiler: Usually full of spoiler tags and ]]spelling erors because [[spoiler: the editor was trying to be the first person to post the example]].

* Example from [[IndianaJones something]] with a BrokenBase, written in a highly diplomatic and value-neutral way, using phrases like "this upset some of the fans". This example probably replaced several paragraphs worth of argument from opposite sides of the schism, possibly [[ThreadMode between the same two people]].

Don't forget to edit the comments from the YKTTW into a reasonable example format instead of just blindly copying and pasting them.
