Also rendered as the elephant "[...] in the corner" or "[...] on the sofa", the Elephant in the Living Room is a large topic or issue which should be obvious to everyone but which is deliberately or conspicuously avoided. In most cases, this is used to create comedic tension; for example, when a character has a BigSecret he must struggle to divert conversation away from. In stark contrast, some cases of the trope create a ''tragic'' vibe, with an Elephant so awful that nobody can bring themselves to raise the topic.
