** Purpose: [[MisplacedNationalism Defending their territory.]] Patriots are often found pottering around in the UsefulNotes section, ensuring that the information on their particular country stays up to date. Sensible versions gently correct stereotypes and conduct discussions on the forums; less sensible types charge into the middle of any trope that mildly criticises their country with flaming torch and pitchfork at the ready. Neither is fond of sweeping generalisations about their country of birth, but the former takes a more tolerant view and is therefore more productive. The latter Administrivia/{{natter}}s incessantly, and can quickly descend into true SingleIssueWonk, if not outright {{Troll}}.

[[JustTryingToHelp There is no malice in these species]], they just tend to be a little...overenthusiastic. However, try telling that to the Editors and Repairmen left to sweep up the rubble. Not to worry - a quick read of the rules, familiarity with the wiki and a helping hand from one of the more [[TheShepherd helpful troper types]] will quickly promote them to another category. Approach the JustTryingToHelp troper with kindness and assistance unless and until they prove contentious -- they could become valuable Wiki allies, but too vicious a lambasting and they may become a Cynical or Destructive type instead.

** Favourite Tropes: That of their favourite show/book/video game. BaseBreaker, however, probably describes their No.1 character. Some may be fond of DracoInLeatherPants, but it's not always a factor.

** Natural Enemies: Generally a peaceful nomadic explorer, seeking out obscure tropes to create new paths to and from. Occasionally conflicts with the Wiki Feng Shui Master due to a tendency to rearrange the bottom sections of articles and pave over harmonious arrangements of potholes in the interest of facilitating navigation. Namespacers occasionally disrupt the trailblazer's pathways by moving favored hub tropes from the main page into YMMV.
