** '''Variations on a Trope''': Sometimes, the difference isn't in how the trope is played functionally, but in how it's presented. The trope is still being Played Straight (hence why this entry only gets a sub-bullet under that one), but it's dressed up in a way that's unique, often due to other tropes present in the story interacting with it to show the full picture. Especially memorable variations may sometimes [[EvolvingTrope evolve]] into {{Sub Trope}}s through other creators attempting to FollowTheLeader.
