* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' enforces GentleGiant with Hector. Hector's mother always makes sure that he's extremely calm, gentle, and almost devoid of emotion (his diary reads "I must not laugh, I must not get overexcited, I must not shout, I must not sneeze.") As she explains, she does so to protect everyone else from him, because he's strong enough to effortlessly destroy all of Elmore and ''will'' do so if he has a fit.

* Suprisingly, ''WebVideo/VinesauceTomodachiLife'' enforces WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants. Since ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' leaves many events and outcomes to the RandomNumberGod, any number of plot twists and character traits are established with no real foreshadowing (for the most part). Since [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] is livestreaming the game and can't save scum his way out of certain events, he ends up being just as surprised as the viewers are by them. Essentially, the series writes itself on the fly.

** Actually, this holds for almost ''any'' work where the author relies on the RandomNumberGod, from [[Creator/ItaloCalvino Il castello dei destini incrociati]] to WebOriginal/{{Inglip}}.

* ''Disney/AladdinReturnOfJafar'' enforces TechnicalPacifist throughout; as a genie, Jafar ''can't'' [[ThouShaltNotKill kill anyone]], even though his entire plan revolves around killing Aladdin for revenge... but [[LoopholeAbuse he's able to find ways around it]] by [[MurderByInaction relying on proxies and indirect assassination attempts where he technically doesn't lay a finger on Aladdin]]. Also, as he makes clear, just because he can't ''kill'' someone doesn't mean he can't ''hurt'' them.
-->''Jafar''': You'd be surprised what you can live through...

* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse and WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck are Enforced examples of ThoseTwoGuys. When the production staff at Touchstone Pictures (an alternate label for Creator/{{Disney}}) went to Creator/WarnerBrothers for permission to use ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' characters in their film, Warner Brothers only agreed to let them use the A-listers Bugs and Daffy on the condition that they both receive ''exactly'' as much screentime as Mickey and Donald, respectively. The only surefire way to honor that agreement was to have both characters share every scene with their {{Alternate Company Equivalent}}s, with neither character appearing without the other.

Tropes that are there because the writer had to include them - especially when a sharp-eyed viewer can tell the creator would have preferred to leave them out.

* ActionGirl - at least when a show is action/adventure-oriented and has a prominent female role. Otherwise, the whole thing just looks plain discriminatory.

** Under UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode, priests, ministers, and other religious authorities had to be portrayed respectfully without exception. Fittingly, one of the co-authors of the Code's actual text was a Jesuit Catholic priest - and while he acknowledged that not all "ministers of religion" were worthy of respect, mockery of any one of them would (supposedly) encourage sacrilegious attitudes.

** ''Series/GameOfThrones'' takes this even further. In [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire the books]], Daenerys Targaryen is 14 when she is [[ArrangedMarriage married off]] to [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Khal Drogo]], and eventually becomes pregnant with his child. She was aged up significantly to avoid the MoralGuardians, but as the time of her birth is tied to [[GreatOffscreenWar Robert's Rebellion]], the rest of the cast had to be aged up as well. Of course, this allows a few ''more'' characters to get that delicious high-skin {{Sexposition}} time, so it works out, we guess?

* PostScriptSeason: This is almost never something planned by the writers. If a show is renewed, it'll get written for, but the writers then have to work their way out of the constraints of the original story.
