Obligatory spoiler warning, in case the trope [[SpoileredRotten involves twists that by their very nature are spoilers.]]'''


Added DiffLines:

* Example from a VisualNovel that was placed in the Video Game folder instead, probably because there wasn't a separate folder.


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:VisualNovel]]
* Example from a game (such as ''AceAttorney'') where it isn't certain it qualifies as a VisualNovel due to its gameplay ratio.

* Example that someone placed a [[YMMVTropes YMMV Trope]] in that the contributor thought was an AwesomeMoment, FunnyMoment, HeartwarmingMoment, NightmareFuel, or TearJerker that should probably be fixed up, but might stay with an unsightly mark for some time.




to:

* "ZeroContextExample in the form of a quote that the contributor assumes everyone knows, especially if it's from something outside the mainstream!"


Added DiffLines:

* Mention of [Series Name], which apparently has enough examples to merit its own folder.
** Example that goes up top because it is the TropeNamer.
--> "Trope Naming quote that can probably also be found on QuotesWiki."
** Another example where the trope is used.
** Series Name OWNS this trope! Here's another example as proof.
** Even this series admits it's kind of an OverusedRunningGag, hence why it was Subverted in Episode Number.
** Example parodying Trope Name's use of this trope that should probably go in a folder other than this one.
* Trope name that doesn't use a bullet point, indicating the prior entries were probably posted before this series gathered so many examples of this it needed its own folder.


Added DiffLines:

%% * Example that [5P] objected to for pedopandering, so it was cut.


Added DiffLines:

* Example from a comic book movie that should probably go under {{Film}} instead.
** Actually, that example goes hand in hand with examples from [[WesternAnimation other]] [[VideoGames media]] based off the comic, so the examples from their own sections are rolled up with the ones from the comic.

Added DiffLines:

* Example from [[{{Donotuse}} Obscure Show Which Had A Page]] that was lost in UsefulNotes/TheGreatCrash which Google and Wikipedia have no listings of, or the Wikipedia listing is under the author's name.


Added DiffLines:

[[folder: [Series Name] ]]
* TropeName: Seen in [Series Name] Online, [Viral Marketing ARG] or [Tabletop Game] 1e (which is now out of print) but now unable to be viewed because of a failure to KeepCirculatingTheTapes.
* [[{{Donotuse}} Other Trope Name]]: Example which could be confirmed, except the trope it links to was lost in UsefulNotes/TheGreatCrash and never reinstated. Since said trope wasn't cut and [Series Name] is obscure and posted long ago, nobody has noticed the Red Link, and if somebody does they can't tell for sure because they don't know what the trope ''was''.

Added DiffLines:

* Example from the ''Xyz World Of Nameness'' sub-game ''Noun: The Verbening'' which is written without bias, but the nature of the settings make it clear how much it is {{Squick}} or NightmareFuel.
* Example from the ''Old World Of Nameness'' sub-game ''Verbling: The Nouning'' which is noticeably lighter than every other example and strongly contrasts with the example from the later ''Verbling: The Squick''.
* One example each from the remaining sub-games of the two ''Xyz World of Darkness'' settings. All of them either make you wonder why anyone would play it, or feels normal and cause you to wonder why anyone would play something boringly safe.


Added DiffLines:

* Example from ''[[MassivelyMultiplayerOnline Game World Online]]'' which is now dead and cannot be confirmed either way because it was impossible to KeepCirculatingTheTapes.
* Example from a Valve game series that predated Steam. Complaint edited in at a later date that a cliffhanger caused by the example will never be resolved because the game series is in DevelopmentHell.
** Obligatory dated joke about how [[MemeticMutation Valve can't count to three]].
** Obligatory in-joke or meme from ''TeamFortress2'' or ''{{VideoGame/Portal}}''.
* Example from ''WorldOfWarcraft'' which any long-time player knows is still true but is only widely known to said long-time players, making it hard to confirm without pouring over huge amounts of lore.
* Example from ''[[VideoGame The Franchise of Video Game: Latest Installment]]'' which will be irrelevant the second the next one is revealed at E3.
* Example from ''Early Crowdfunded Game Whose "Innovative" Funding Method Made Them A Media Darling''... ''Outdated Star Citizen Lore Predating the Funding Rush''... ''Limbo''... ''Braid''... ''No Time To Explain!''... ''The Binding of Isaac''... ''Fez''... ''Flappy Bird''... ''Crowdfunded Game That Came THIS Close to Release But Was Cancelled Because One of the Devs Illegally Spent the Money On Themselves''... ''Five Nights At Freddys''... ''Undertale''... ''Crowdfunded Game That Came THIS Close to Release But Had It Stolen Out From Under Them By A Concept Artist Leaving and Claiming All the Finished Graphics as Intellectual Property''... ''Newly Crowdfunded Game''... ''Indie Game That Was Popular Last Year''... ''Indie Video Game that is... '''was''' a Surprise Hit'' posted by someone in the huge fanbase.
** Oh, the game is no longer popular, ''Indie Video Game Hit of 2017... 2018... 2019'' has a "better" (read: newer) example.


Added DiffLines:

* Other Webcomic also did it [[http://badlink/7765765 here]], but the link is dead because it was on a Webcomic-Hosting-Made-Easy site from the late-2000s which was capitalizing on the comic-making craze and closed down to avoid the decline, or which was in for the long haul but could no longer stay in the black.

Added DiffLines:

* Example from ''[[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]]'', but the fact it has an interesting [[PlayingWithATrope take on the trope]] prompts you to look it up on Google or Wiki/TheOtherWiki.
* Example from ''[[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]]'' or [[{{Series}} Show With An Actual Page Which You Have Never Heard Of]] which you investigate in curiosity that turns out to be SoBadItsHorrible, [[DarkerAndEdgier Grimdark]], or worst of all has [[FetishFuel certain]] niche [[BloodyHilarious themes]] that for most people are just plain [[{{Squick}} disturbing]].

** Natter in which a troper complains that PaulRobinson should be banned and the example removed! ...which is now outdated because it [[HilariousInHindsight was eventually published]].

Added DiffLines:

%% * ZeroContextExample.
* ZeroContextExample that needs to be commented out.
%% * ZeroContextExample where someone attempted to add context, but another troper deemed it insufficient and commented it out again instead of expanding on the example.


Added DiffLines:

* An example from an anime or manga which is illustrated [[http://badlink/030502 here]]. The link is to a scanlation which has been taken down due to licensing issues, rendering the example useless.
