[[BlatantLies It's no surprise that the TV Tropes Wiki is the most popular website on the Internet]], and, equally, it's no surprise that other webpages want to give us a ShoutOut, or that we would want to return the favor by shouting back to the pages that reference us.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* ''FanFic/ThinkingInLittleGreenBoxes'' has Literature/HarryPotter celebrate when he learns we made a page for the fic here. He even passes out a link to the page to everyone.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' FanFic/ThisTimeRound:
** ''Storytime'' ''[[http://www.ttrarchive.com/spec2.html The Speckled Band]]'', has Baby Mel shout "[[IncomingHam Did somebody order]] A [[LargeHam LARGE HAM]]?" when BrianBlessed {{Expy}} Prubert Gastridge appears as the villain.
** [[http://www.ttrarchive.com/yatr.html Another TTR story]] states at the bottom that it was written purely because the FanFic/ThisTimeRound entry said there wasn't a genderbent 'Round.
* Several chapters of ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' refer to several tropes.
* Gregg Landsman, author of ''Fanfic/NobodyDies'', has referenced tropes in his story multiple times. For instance, [[spoiler:Iruel greeting Asuka]] with "Hey there {{Woobie}}, how's Mommy treating you?", and Shinji somewhat-sarcastically referring to himself as a "BigDamnHero". He even has a link to the trope page for ''Nobody Dies'' in the signature of his spacebattles.com account.
* [[http://pishoque.net/brian/fanfic/kbdh/index.htm Kyon: Big Damn Hero]] is a story that is described as a crossover between LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya and TVTropes. Based on the [[{{Troperiffic}} massive number of tropes]] listed on [[Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero the Main Trope page for the story]], not to mention several tropes [[ShoutOut referred to]] [[ConversationalTroping by name]], it's pretty safe to say that the author is OneOfUs.
* The author of ''LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami'' was apparently pleased to find our entry on it. Dark randomly declares himself a "sutle [sic] MagnificentBastard" as a TakeThat to the wiki claiming Dark had no subtle gambits, and we're suddenly told Near did a lot of [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous supposedly evil things]] after TVTropes claimed Near did nothing worthy of his ChewToy status. Later, he thought it was awesome that @/{{Slowzombie}} is {{l|etsPlay}}iveblogging it, [[LiteralMinded Slow's eye problems notwithstanding]].
* The round-robin, multibranching fic ''[[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/frecent.php?tag=Switching+Places%2FEva%21 Switching Places/Eva!]]'' on the Anime Addventure. In this ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''/''RanmaOneHalf'' crossover, [[EmotionlessGirl Rei]] [[NoSocialSkills Ayanami]] has begun using [="TVTropes.jp"=] as a tool to help her understand human interactions. [[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/253452.html It's unclear whether this is a good idea or not]].
* ''Fanfic/{{Progress}}'' has the author reccommend us to any readers who want to know what [[SanitySlippage Cutie Mark Failure Insanity Syndrome]] is. Later we see 'Trope's Library of Literary Tools' in Celestia's library.
** Another Pony fic is outright titled ''ShippingGoggles''.

-->This song is just awful, so much so that TV Tropes, which is run by people who like ''everything'', lists this scene as Repo's DarthWiki/DethroningMomentOfSuck.
* Here's [[http://io9.com/5479423/behind-the-wiki-meet-tv-tropes-cofounder-fast-eddie?skyline=true&s=i a thing from io9]], a great online 'zine for all things [=SFnal=] and cool.

* The LA Times had [[http://tinyurl.com/ybkph8r a look at us.]]

* ''Arcade'', Stanford University's salon magazine, has a [[http://arcade.stanford.edu/tvtropesorg-future-of-humanities write-up about us.]]

** [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/blogs/browbeat/archive/2009/07/13/today-s-google-trends-tv-tropes.aspx Here]] referring to ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' referring to us

* [[BadassOfTheWeek Amazing Ben]] has referenced this site in some of his articles.
* The site received an entry in the 2011 edition of ''Schott's Almanac'', a catalogue of recent events, trends and phenomena, along with a list of some of the {{trope}}s present here.
* The Febuary 2011 issue of ''Maximum PC'' includes this site on a [[http://www.maximumpc.com/article/features/100_websites_see_you_die_part_1 list of 101 websites everyone should see once]].
* Wired's Geekdad [[http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/06/banned-books-tv-tropes-and-other-ways-to-trick-teen-boys-into-reading-great-literature/ recommends]] [=TVTropes=] to keep kids reading over the summer.
* The "distributed recommendation system" [[http://skipforward.opendfki.de/ Skipforward]] provides a linked-data wrapper for [=TVTropes=] called [[http://skipforward.opendfki.de/wiki/DBTropes DBTropes]]. Among other things, it provides a machine-readable interface to the wiki.
* Ralph Keyes mentions TV Tropes in the bibliography of his book ''Euphemania''--though there's no mention in the main text.
* In [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/nov/24/fanfiction-deserves-more-respect this article]] in ''The Guardian'' on fanfiction, there's a direct reference to the trope MostFanficWritersAreGirls.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', in the sourcebook ''Swords at Dawn,'' details Talecrafting, a way Changelings can tweak fate to force life to follow story conventions, such as the RuleOfThree, the Evil Stepmother, or the [[EccentricMentor elderly mentor]]. Guess what site they reference as a good place to find inspiration?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has a ''monster'' in its 2010 Christmas content called the [[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Tome_of_Tropes "Tome of Tropes." ]]
--> "You can't focus your attention on working, or on much of anything, so you turn to the nuclear solution of boredom: the Tome of Tropes. It's a giant book that explains and gives clever names to all of the recurring themes in literature, popular culture, and even real life. There are two things about the book that make it purest evil: the first is that anyone can add to it, so it's always changing and growing larger. The second is that every entry contains several references to other cleverly-named tropes, and touching one of those names sends you to an explanation of that trope's name, complete with references to other tropes... and at some point you look up and see you're eight years older than when you started."
* One of the ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' title blurbs reads: "Less addictive than TV Tropes!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* As ''DorkTower'' admits, [[http://www.dorktower.com/2011/01/18/dork-tower-tuesday-january-18-2011/ TVTropes will indeed ruin your life]].
* ''ErrantStory'': in one of the [[NoFourthWall chapter commentaries]], Bani calls Sara the [[TheWorfEffect Worf]] of ErrantStory. Sara's response? "You're not allowed to read TvTropes anymore".
* TropeTan and CaptainObvious are characters in ''TheWayOfTheMetagamer''. The comic also directly mentions ''AvatarAndTheAirbendingFellowshipOfVampireSlayers'' and tropes on ThisVeryWiki.
* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' mentions this wiki in the notes a lot. So does ''DarthsAndDroids''. As {{@/Dmmaus}} is a known {{Troper}}, this should be expected.
* [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust02132009.shtml This strip]] of ''SuperStupor''.
* ''StickmanAndCube'' mentions us a few times. or at least refers to tropes by name.
* ''NowhereUniversity'' has references to this site.
* The commentary on [[http://www.partiallyclips.com/index.php?id=1596&c=1 this strip]] of ''Partially Clips''.
* Phil Foglio has a link to us on the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/fun.php Fun Stuff page]].
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' once mentioned us [[http://xkcd.com/609 here]]. And linked the comic to this site. Randall Munroe is a cruel man, as the people [[http://echochamber.me/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=42391 in this thread]] can certify.
* [[http://shortpacked.com/2009/08/17/ This]] ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' strip is titled (according to the accompanying blog post) "Is this something already covered by TVTropes? I haven't checked yet". [[StrawVulcan It is]].
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' recently had a strip that features a blurred website that looks [[http://drmcninja.com/page.php?pageNum=48&issue=15 veeeerryy suspicious.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8006917&postcount=137 According to the Giant]], he's aware of TVTropes, but has never directly referenced it; everything that seems like a reference is OlderThanTheyThink.
* At least two of the authors of ''ExterminatusNow'' are tropers, and Silversword is one of them. Eastwood is the other.
* In at least [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2010-02-12 one]] ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' strip, Dan has linked to TVTropes in TheRant. Specifically, the RedShirt page.
* AndrewHussie of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has mentioned us a few times. While he doesn't completely agree with our specific list-based methods, he seems to like the general troping idea and has said that he's found a few articles to be interesting reads. [[hottip:*: Which is understandable, considering how many tropes are pulled off, [[LampshadeHanging lampeshaded]] and {{zigzagged}} in ''Homestuck''.]]
* ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'': The archive title of the [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1582 Oct 28, 2009]] page is "inspired by the tvtropes 'WeaksauceWeakness' page. tvtropes it great, it'll remind you of how ridiculous your body is, AND also suck up endless hours of your time".
* ''TheUnspeakableVaultOfDoom'' linked this site's "good summary" of ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Warhammer 40K]]'' in [[http://www.goominet.com/unspeakable-vault/vault/341/ strip #341]].
* ''UnwindersTallComics'': Barbecue Sauce [[http://tallcomics.com/?id=72 has an anime to recommend]].
* The chaps that create ''Webcomic/VirtualShackles'' might well be tropers, as [[http://www.virtualshackles.com/187 this comic]] references ManicPixieDreamGirl.
* ''AnsemRetort'' has [[http://ansemretort.org/ansemretort/index.html?comic=627 this]] as a sort of TakeThat joke to the site. Duke then added in his update that people check out the site, as well as a disclaimer that he doesn't edit his own page and leaves it up to the fans.
* ''APathToGreaterGood'': Guido (who does occasionally post on the TV Tropes forum) [[http://www.neorice.com/aptgg_263 wonders if there's a trope for that hair]]. (AnimeHair or ImprobableHairstyle, by the way.)
* ''{{Bobwhite}}'': [[http://www.bobwhitecomics.com/?webcomic_post=20081218 This page]] discusses the TzadikimNistarim. The AltText notes "This one is on TV Tropes for some reason."
* The commentary to [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9001-Critical-Miss-Stowaways-Assassins-Creed this]] ''Webcomic/CriticalMiss'' strip (referencing ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''):
--> "The Templars are winning in the modern portion of the games because they finally have access to [[HomePage a certain website]] and thus can avoid embarrassing situations like the one illustrated in today's comic. That and they presumably outlawed hay."
** When Erin went to visit her therapist [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9201-Therapy in this strip]] he references several tropes to explain her mental problems. She accuses him of not being a real doctor and then the audience sees he has [=TVTropes=] open with "goatfuck crazy" in the search engine.
--> "Alright, Miss Stout. From what you've told me you have a severe case of... hold on... SanitySlippage, which is an AmbiguousDisorder caused by... huh... You're now what we technically call a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} 'cuckoolander']]."
** After Erin takes Kratos' (from ''GodOfWar'') advice and try to destroy her friend's XBox360 and almost seriously harming another in the process, she gets thrown out of their house. [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9527-Consensus She then decides to get drunk,]] and comments that "This is going to look '''terrible''' on my TvTropes page."
* Johnathan Grey Carter, the writer of ''CriticalMiss'' is pleased that it has a page:
-->One of our readers, some might say our '''best''' reader, has started a ''Critical Miss'' TV Tropes page! I've always wanted my own TV Tropes page. So much so I even considered starting my own. But that'd be kind of like like signing your own yearbook, or masturbating in public. It's just not done. Whoever started the page may step forward and receive a moderate amount of praise and adulation.
* On the ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' [[http://www.earsforelves.com/ links bar]], our page is the first entry in "extras". We are also now the official [[Characters/EarsForElves character sheet]], being the link under "about", though the [[http://www.earsforelves.com/characters original page]] (which our content is heavily based off) is still there if you know the URL. These links account for the main page having >800 inbounds and the character page having 150, despite the main page only having 50 wicks, as of the 3rd of June 2012.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Nice essay on The Millions examining whether or not we have a [[http://www.themillions.com/2011/09/the-million-basic-plots.html chilling effect on creativity.]] Also relays some information about [[ChinaMieville China Miéville's]] opinion of the wiki.
* Lore Sjöberg of ''Wired'' features us [[http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/08/alt-text-procrastinators/ here]]. The page on the screen is RidiculousProcrastinator.
* MovieBob lovingly [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/7190-Trope-a-Dope kicks our asses]]. The good stuff kicks in on page 2.
* TheAbridgedSeries of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' makes quite a few references.
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], made the exclamation "Oh my God! TVTropes used one of my quotes!" during a PreviouslyOn montage.
--> ''[[http://atopfourthwall.blogspot.com/2010/02/double-feature.html "...Spend HOURS at the Tv Tropes Booth!"]][[hottip:*:Part 2, to be specific.]]''
* [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] has mentioned in his KenPark commentary that he used us as a reference when looking up films to review, specifically the pages LeCinemaArtistique, TrueArtIsIncomprehensible and {{Euroschlock}}.
* CR of FamiliarFaces mentions a character as TheWoobie in his Top 10 Overlooked Christmas Specials, even mentioning us by name.
* NightmareFuel/{{FSTDT}}: On the top of [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=78590 this page]], it says "The "High Octane Nightmare Fuel" Award". That page is the first thing linked on FSTDT's [[NightmareFuel/{{FSTDT}} High Octane Nightmare Fuel page]].
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick:
** Dedicated a [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/16616-the-smurfette-principle whole video]] to DistaffCounterpart and TheSmurfettePrinciple, using TVTropes' names for both.
** She strikes again in [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/22681-ever-after her review]] of ''[[Literature/{{Cinderella}} Ever After]]'', where she discusses TheWoobie trope and mentions TVTropes by name.
* ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' has made references to trope titles in the past.
* Y Ruler of Time of ''Read Right To Left'', the {{Manga}} review show on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses:
** Uses a lot of trope names in his review of ''[[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt/readright/11736-rumble School Rumble]]'', and displays the {{Tsundere}} page image as well.
** In his later review of ''[[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt/readright/21419-lets-bible Let's Bible]]'', he refers to TVTropes by name, discussing the WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic trope, and even displaying the page as he talks. In subtitles, he admits that [[CaptainObvious he visits the site]], and also says that the above paragraph shouldn't count as an example of NotableReferencesToTVTropes, but that his present discussion should. The obvious solution? [[TakeAThirdOption Have both of them as examples]], of course.
* The Wiki/SCPFoundation lists this site as an safe-class object: [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-4445-j SCP 4445]]. (Granted, it's a joke entry, written in response to our article about them...) Seems that in the SCP-verse, this wiki is a front for the Foundation, used for psychological screening and recruitment. Also, in [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/supplemental-report-239-b-192 Supplemental Report 239-B-192]]. [-Not to mention members showing up on the forum occasionally.-]
* ''TheSecretLifeOfDolls'' has an [[http://cleoland.pbworks.com/slod-09-0303-monsters installment]] titled after the trope HeWhoFightsMonsters. (Example is not an OlderThanTheyThink. Cleo links to the article.)
* ''PrincessTutuAbridged'' often refers to tropes by name. An entire sub-plot was created because of a single run through the ShippingTropes. It's the Shipping Bridge! And being put in a CargoShip is the worst thing that can happen. But no worries, the [[RomanticPlotTumor the entire plot]] is now focusing on Duck and Fakir. Drusselmeyer hates it.
* Dena, of ThatGuyWithTheGlasses' Game Den and Film Den shows referenced a character as TheWoobie complete with an image of the page.
* The Blog [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/ The Slacktivist]] made one of its ''LeftBehind'' criticisms [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/2010/11/tf-pocket-full-of-kryptonite.html here]], with a reference to MrExposition. [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/2010/11/tf-pocket-full-of-kryptonite.html?cid=6a00d8341c582a53ef0133f588d84a970b#comment-6a00d8341c582a53ef0133f588d84a970b This comment]] states:
-->We all knew this day would come. *Fred himself* has opened the door to the TV Tropes Abyss.\\

* SFDebris has made a couple references in his videos, including a notice to alert the users of TVTropes that he finally gave a ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode a score of 10.
* LetsPlay/ProtonJon is fully aware of TVTropes and occasionally namedrops tropes.

* ''FanFic/ThinkingInLittleGreenBoxes'' has Literature/HarryPotter celebrate when he learns we made a page for the fic here. He even passes out a link to the page to everyone.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' FanFic/ThisTimeRound:
** ''Storytime'' ''[[http://www.ttrarchive.com/spec2.html The Speckled Band]]'', has Baby Mel shout "[[IncomingHam Did somebody order]] A [[LargeHam LARGE HAM]]?" when BrianBlessed {{Expy}} Prubert Gastridge appears as the villain.
** [[http://www.ttrarchive.com/yatr.html Another TTR story]] states at the bottom that it was written purely because the FanFic/ThisTimeRound entry said there wasn't a genderbent 'Round.
* Several chapters of ''FanFic/ShinjiAndWarhammer40K'' refer to several tropes.
* Gregg Landsman, author of ''Fanfic/NobodyDies'', has referenced tropes in his story multiple times. For instance, [[spoiler:Iruel greeting Asuka]] with "Hey there {{Woobie}}, how's Mommy treating you?", and Shinji somewhat-sarcastically referring to himself as a "BigDamnHero". He even has a link to the trope page for ''Nobody Dies'' in the signature of his spacebattles.com account.
* [[http://pishoque.net/brian/fanfic/kbdh/index.htm Kyon: Big Damn Hero]] is a story that is described as a crossover between LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya and TVTropes. Based on the [[{{Troperiffic}} massive number of tropes]] listed on [[Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero the Main Trope page for the story]], not to mention several tropes [[ShoutOut referred to]] [[ConversationalTroping by name]], it's pretty safe to say that the author is OneOfUs.
* The author of ''LightAndDarkTheAdventuresOfDarkYagami'' was apparently pleased to find our entry on it. Dark randomly declares himself a "sutle [sic] MagnificentBastard" as a TakeThat to the wiki claiming Dark had no subtle gambits, and we're suddenly told Near did a lot of [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotHeinous supposedly evil things]] after TVTropes claimed Near did nothing worthy of his ChewToy status. Later, he thought it was awesome that @/{{Slowzombie}} is {{l|etsPlay}}iveblogging it, [[LiteralMinded Slow's eye problems notwithstanding]].
* The round-robin, multibranching fic ''[[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/frecent.php?tag=Switching+Places%2FEva%21 Switching Places/Eva!]]'' on the Anime Addventure. In this ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''/''RanmaOneHalf'' crossover, [[EmotionlessGirl Rei]] [[NoSocialSkills Ayanami]] has begun using [="TVTropes.jp"=] as a tool to help her understand human interactions. [[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/253452.html It's unclear whether this is a good idea or not]].
* ''Fanfic/{{Progress}}'' has the author reccommend us to any readers who want to know what [[SanitySlippage Cutie Mark Failure Insanity Syndrome]] is. Later we see 'Trope's Library of Literary Tools' in Celestia's library.
** Another Pony fic is outright titled ''ShippingGoggles''.

* [[BadassOfTheWeek Amazing Ben]] has referenced this site in some of his articles.

* ''TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost'', in the sourcebook ''Swords at Dawn,'' details Talecrafting, a way Changelings can tweak fate to force life to follow story conventions, such as the RuleOfThree, the Evil Stepmother, or the [[EccentricMentor elderly mentor]]. Guess what site they reference as a good place to find inspiration?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has a ''monster'' in its 2010 Christmas content called the [[http://kol.coldfront.net/thekolwiki/index.php/Tome_of_Tropes "Tome of Tropes." ]]
--> "You can't focus your attention on working, or on much of anything, so you turn to the nuclear solution of boredom: the Tome of Tropes. It's a giant book that explains and gives clever names to all of the recurring themes in literature, popular culture, and even real life. There are two things about the book that make it purest evil: the first is that anyone can add to it, so it's always changing and growing larger. The second is that every entry contains several references to other cleverly-named tropes, and touching one of those names sends you to an explanation of that trope's name, complete with references to other tropes... and at some point you look up and see you're eight years older than when you started."
* One of the ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' title blurbs reads: "Less addictive than TV Tropes!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* As ''DorkTower'' admits, [[http://www.dorktower.com/2011/01/18/dork-tower-tuesday-january-18-2011/ TVTropes will indeed ruin your life]].
* ''ErrantStory'': in one of the [[NoFourthWall chapter commentaries]], Bani calls Sara the [[TheWorfEffect Worf]] of ErrantStory. Sara's response? "You're not allowed to read TvTropes anymore".
* TropeTan and CaptainObvious are characters in ''TheWayOfTheMetagamer''. The comic also directly mentions ''AvatarAndTheAirbendingFellowshipOfVampireSlayers'' and tropes on ThisVeryWiki.
* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'' mentions this wiki in the notes a lot. So does ''DarthsAndDroids''. As {{@/Dmmaus}} is a known {{Troper}}, this should be expected.
* [[http://www.superstupor.com/sust02132009.shtml This strip]] of ''SuperStupor''.
* ''StickmanAndCube'' mentions us a few times. or at least refers to tropes by name.
* ''NowhereUniversity'' has references to this site.
* The commentary on [[http://www.partiallyclips.com/index.php?id=1596&c=1 this strip]] of ''Partially Clips''.
* Phil Foglio has a link to us on the ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/fun.php Fun Stuff page]].
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' once mentioned us [[http://xkcd.com/609 here]]. And linked the comic to this site. Randall Munroe is a cruel man, as the people [[http://echochamber.me/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=42391 in this thread]] can certify.
* [[http://shortpacked.com/2009/08/17/ This]] ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'' strip is titled (according to the accompanying blog post) "Is this something already covered by TVTropes? I haven't checked yet". [[StrawVulcan It is]].
* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' recently had a strip that features a blurred website that looks [[http://drmcninja.com/page.php?pageNum=48&issue=15 veeeerryy suspicious.]]
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8006917&postcount=137 According to the Giant]], he's aware of TVTropes, but has never directly referenced it; everything that seems like a reference is OlderThanTheyThink.
* At least two of the authors of ''ExterminatusNow'' are tropers, and Silversword is one of them. Eastwood is the other.
* In at least [[http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp/?date=2010-02-12 one]] ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' strip, Dan has linked to TVTropes in TheRant. Specifically, the RedShirt page.
* AndrewHussie of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has mentioned us a few times. While he doesn't completely agree with our specific list-based methods, he seems to like the general troping idea and has said that he's found a few articles to be interesting reads. [[hottip:*: Which is understandable, considering how many tropes are pulled off, [[LampshadeHanging lampeshaded]] and {{zigzagged}} in ''Homestuck''.]]
* ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'': The archive title of the [[http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=1582 Oct 28, 2009]] page is "inspired by the tvtropes 'WeaksauceWeakness' page. tvtropes it great, it'll remind you of how ridiculous your body is, AND also suck up endless hours of your time".
* ''TheUnspeakableVaultOfDoom'' linked this site's "good summary" of ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Warhammer 40K]]'' in [[http://www.goominet.com/unspeakable-vault/vault/341/ strip #341]].
* ''UnwindersTallComics'': Barbecue Sauce [[http://tallcomics.com/?id=72 has an anime to recommend]].
* The chaps that create ''Webcomic/VirtualShackles'' might well be tropers, as [[http://www.virtualshackles.com/187 this comic]] references ManicPixieDreamGirl.
* ''AnsemRetort'' has [[http://ansemretort.org/ansemretort/index.html?comic=627 this]] as a sort of TakeThat joke to the site. Duke then added in his update that people check out the site, as well as a disclaimer that he doesn't edit his own page and leaves it up to the fans.
* ''APathToGreaterGood'': Guido (who does occasionally post on the TV Tropes forum) [[http://www.neorice.com/aptgg_263 wonders if there's a trope for that hair]]. (AnimeHair or ImprobableHairstyle, by the way.)
* ''{{Bobwhite}}'': [[http://www.bobwhitecomics.com/?webcomic_post=20081218 This page]] discusses the TzadikimNistarim. The AltText notes "This one is on TV Tropes for some reason."
* The commentary to [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9001-Critical-Miss-Stowaways-Assassins-Creed this]] ''Webcomic/CriticalMiss'' strip (referencing ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''):
--> "The Templars are winning in the modern portion of the games because they finally have access to [[HomePage a certain website]] and thus can avoid embarrassing situations like the one illustrated in today's comic. That and they presumably outlawed hay."
** When Erin went to visit her therapist [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9201-Therapy in this strip]] he references several tropes to explain her mental problems. She accuses him of not being a real doctor and then the audience sees he has [=TVTropes=] open with "goatfuck crazy" in the search engine.
--> "Alright, Miss Stout. From what you've told me you have a severe case of... hold on... SanitySlippage, which is an AmbiguousDisorder caused by... huh... You're now what we technically call a [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} 'cuckoolander']]."
** After Erin takes Kratos' (from ''GodOfWar'') advice and try to destroy her friend's XBox360 and almost seriously harming another in the process, she gets thrown out of their house. [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/comics/critical-miss/9527-Consensus She then decides to get drunk,]] and comments that "This is going to look '''terrible''' on my TvTropes page."
* Johnathan Grey Carter, the writer of ''CriticalMiss'' is pleased that it has a page:
-->One of our readers, some might say our '''best''' reader, has started a ''Critical Miss'' TV Tropes page! I've always wanted my own TV Tropes page. So much so I even considered starting my own. But that'd be kind of like like signing your own yearbook, or masturbating in public. It's just not done. Whoever started the page may step forward and receive a moderate amount of praise and adulation.
* On the ''Webcomic/EarsForElves'' [[http://www.earsforelves.com/ links bar]], our page is the first entry in "extras". We are also now the official [[Characters/EarsForElves character sheet]], being the link under "about", though the [[http://www.earsforelves.com/characters original page]] (which our content is heavily based off) is still there if you know the URL. These links account for the main page having >800 inbounds and the character page having 150, despite the main page only having 50 wicks, as of the 3rd of June 2012.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Nice essay on The Millions examining whether or not we have a [[http://www.themillions.com/2011/09/the-million-basic-plots.html chilling effect on creativity.]] Also relays some information about [[ChinaMieville China Miéville's]] opinion of the wiki.
* Lore Sjöberg of ''Wired'' features us [[http://www.wired.com/underwire/2010/08/alt-text-procrastinators/ here]]. The page on the screen is RidiculousProcrastinator.
* MovieBob lovingly [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/7190-Trope-a-Dope kicks our asses]]. The good stuff kicks in on page 2.
* TheAbridgedSeries of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' makes quite a few references.
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], made the exclamation "Oh my God! TVTropes used one of my quotes!" during a PreviouslyOn montage.
--> ''[[http://atopfourthwall.blogspot.com/2010/02/double-feature.html "...Spend HOURS at the Tv Tropes Booth!"]][[hottip:*:Part 2, to be specific.]]''
* [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] has mentioned in his KenPark commentary that he used us as a reference when looking up films to review, specifically the pages LeCinemaArtistique, TrueArtIsIncomprehensible and {{Euroschlock}}.
* CR of FamiliarFaces mentions a character as TheWoobie in his Top 10 Overlooked Christmas Specials, even mentioning us by name.
* NightmareFuel/{{FSTDT}}: On the top of [[http://fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=78590 this page]], it says "The "High Octane Nightmare Fuel" Award". That page is the first thing linked on FSTDT's [[NightmareFuel/{{FSTDT}} High Octane Nightmare Fuel page]].
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick:
** Dedicated a [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/16616-the-smurfette-principle whole video]] to DistaffCounterpart and TheSmurfettePrinciple, using TVTropes' names for both.
** She strikes again in [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/nostalgia-chick/22681-ever-after her review]] of ''[[Literature/{{Cinderella}} Ever After]]'', where she discusses TheWoobie trope and mentions TVTropes by name.
* ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation'' has made references to trope titles in the past.
* Y Ruler of Time of ''Read Right To Left'', the {{Manga}} review show on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses:
** Uses a lot of trope names in his review of ''[[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt/readright/11736-rumble School Rumble]]'', and displays the {{Tsundere}} page image as well.
** In his later review of ''[[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt/readright/21419-lets-bible Let's Bible]]'', he refers to TVTropes by name, discussing the WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic trope, and even displaying the page as he talks. In subtitles, he admits that [[CaptainObvious he visits the site]], and also says that the above paragraph shouldn't count as an example of NotableReferencesToTVTropes, but that his present discussion should. The obvious solution? [[TakeAThirdOption Have both of them as examples]], of course.
* The Wiki/SCPFoundation lists this site as an safe-class object: [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-4445-j SCP 4445]]. (Granted, it's a joke entry, written in response to our article about them...) Seems that in the SCP-verse, this wiki is a front for the Foundation, used for psychological screening and recruitment. Also, in [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/supplemental-report-239-b-192 Supplemental Report 239-B-192]]. [-Not to mention members showing up on the forum occasionally.-]
* ''TheSecretLifeOfDolls'' has an [[http://cleoland.pbworks.com/slod-09-0303-monsters installment]] titled after the trope HeWhoFightsMonsters. (Example is not an OlderThanTheyThink. Cleo links to the article.)
* ''PrincessTutuAbridged'' often refers to tropes by name. An entire sub-plot was created because of a single run through the ShippingTropes. It's the Shipping Bridge! And being put in a CargoShip is the worst thing that can happen. But no worries, the [[RomanticPlotTumor the entire plot]] is now focusing on Duck and Fakir. Drusselmeyer hates it.
* Dena, of ThatGuyWithTheGlasses' Game Den and Film Den shows referenced a character as TheWoobie complete with an image of the page.
* The Blog [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/ The Slacktivist]] made one of its ''LeftBehind'' criticisms [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/2010/11/tf-pocket-full-of-kryptonite.html here]], with a reference to MrExposition. [[http://slacktivist.typepad.com/slacktivist/2010/11/tf-pocket-full-of-kryptonite.html?cid=6a00d8341c582a53ef0133f588d84a970b#comment-6a00d8341c582a53ef0133f588d84a970b This comment]] states:
-->We all knew this day would come. *Fred himself* has opened the door to the TV Tropes Abyss.\\

* SFDebris has made a couple references in his videos, including a notice to alert the users of TVTropes that he finally gave a ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode a score of 10.
* LetsPlay/ProtonJon is fully aware of TVTropes and occasionally namedrops tropes.
