When going through TheHerosJourney, the [[HeroProtagonist protagonist]] will typically have to undergo some trial (or test, whether physical or written) to prove his or her own worth. The test will come at any given time, normally during the Road of Trials for the inexperienced adventurer, but for the returning victor, it can happen as early as Crossing The First Threshold. The standard obstacle (but not always) that he or she will face will be some unknown EldritchAbomination, so powerful that it will even terrify [[MentorArchetype the Mentor]], prompting the fledgling savior to TakeAThirdOption, one that his or her mentor would never have thought have in a million years. After the fight, the mentor, still having a sense of [[NotSoStoic awe and pride in his voice]], will try to keep a sense of authority by making some rather [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] comments, almost as if he was grading a test, about how he would've handled the situation differently.

An obvious {{Subtrope}} of DeadpanSnarker. Compare OnAScaleFromOneToTen, which uses this ratings system with numbers instead of an alphabetical rank. Please no TruthInTelevision examples, as no group of friends ever seem to be able to take a rating system seriously.

* From ''{{Futurama}}'': In "Mars University", Fry, Amy, and Gunter, a chimp whose intelligence was enhanced through [[MakesAsMuchSenseInContext a bowler hat powered by sun spots]] participate in a class on 20th century history. Not only is the professor in charge of the class thick on the [[SarcasmMode sarcasm]], but every seat in his lecture hall is rigged to [[DisproportionateRetribution electrocute any student who makes a snide remark, calls out of turn, or answers incorrectly.]]

** Keep in mind that Harry, Ron, and Hermione thought Fred and George were ''joking'' when they said the lowest grade is named after the phenomenally stupid ([[DumbMuscle but very strong]]) creatures known as trolls.
