* The protagonist uses a [[PowerGlows glowy sword]] because he fights [[LivingShadow sentient shadows]].
* [[EveryCarIsAPinto The car blew up upon crashing]] because of the nitroglycerin that was put in the trunk in an earlier episode as part of a ploy to blast through a bank vault.

* The protagonist uses a glowy sword because the power source is leaky ([[FridgeLogic but wait, shouldn't that cause other problems? We also know that he has the tools to fix it!]]).
* The car blew up upon being shot because the shooter aimed for the gas tank and said he used tracer rounds ([[FridgeLogic but wait, why would he have tracer rounds in his service pistol?]]).

A justified {{trope}} is one which, in its common usage, runs counter to the normal laws of logic and probability but in a particular instance has a concrete reason InUniverse for applying to the story. In other words, a trope is "justified" if it is ''required'' by other pre-existing elements in the story -- otherwise the explanation is a HandWave.

Remember that a trope being justified is not about it ultimately being good or bad or effective or ineffective - it's about whether or not it ''makes sense from an in-universe point of view''. A trope can be perfectly justified and still ruin a show. Contrarily, a trope may be completely unjustified and [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality make the story better]]. [[TropesAreNotBad Do not assume that the existence of a trope is inherently a sign of]] bad writing.

Now, how would these same scenarios look if the justifications were [[HandWave Hand Waves]] requiring you [[MST3KMantra to turn your brain off]]?

Don't put any examples here. Wicks on other pages '''[[InUniverseExamplesOnly must be in-universe]]''' and also [[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotArguable Not Arguable]]. (That is, when writing one, resist the temptation to use WeaselWords like "possibly" "probably," "somewhat" or "part[ial]ly") If you want to see examples, you'll have to look for them elsewhere. Or you could go into the PlayingWithWiki for hypothetical examples.
