[[quoteright:267:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/robloxlogo_4837.png]] ROBLOX was started in 2005, by David Baszucki. Roblox is very much like {{Lego}} In the way that it's all BuiltWithLEGO. In ROBLOX, you have a character you design yourself made out of simplistic bricks or something. You use this character to go to places made by everybody else with a ROBLOX account and have fun. However, if you want to make your own place, you either have to master a scripting program named {{Lua}}, or use free models that the others made. Another element is the Graphical User Interface, or the GUI, which requires more scripting, yet mastering it creates cooler things. Just about anything is possible with enough scripting; Machine guns, remote-controlled cars, [[ColonyDrop on-demand meteor storms]], 3D [[SuperMarioBros Mario-style adventures]], explorations of the second dimension, and much, ''[[WideOpenSandbox much]]'' more. [[http://www.roblox.com/ Visit Roblox here.]] !!{{Roblox}} and its users contain examples of the following tropes: * AmusingInjuries: Some ragdoll places can lead to ragdolls experiencing these. ** Ragdoll death scripts. There's even one place with water that makes your head EXPLODE. * ArtificialBrilliance: With lots of scripting, almost player-like AI like the ones [[http://www.roblox.com/SNCAI-Bot-BrickBattle-Saved-statistics-place?id=20448980 this place]] uses can be made. * ArtificialStupidity: The commonly-used AI zombies have absolutely no pathfinding AI to them. They'll just walk into barriers harmlessly. Justified if you look at the scripting - all you'll find is that the "Torso" block of most zombies is programmed to move towards the closest player. * AscendedGlitch: The "double/triple hat glitch" in 2008, which allowed users to wear 2 or more hats at once, eventually became a part of the game. * AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: One default transformer makes you a giant. There's also a place where there's the illusion of growing because the environment gets "smaller" in scale. You start out smaller than a molecule and grow to bigger than several stars combined. * BlatantLies: Occasionally, a place will slip onto the front page that says something along the lines of "Finish the obstacle course, and win 1,000,000 tux for real!" Did we mention people fall for it? ** Also proven by a feature that allows users to use custom images and YouTube videos as a thumbnail preview for their game, most users use screenshots of games like Minecraft and Angry Birds to lure the other users in. * BribingYourWayToVictory: Three memberships, the ability to buy Robux, and Roblox gift cards. Mainly the three memberships, since they give a lot of (optional) benefits. A ''lot''. ** AllegedlyFreeGame: It's free to play, but the magnitude of some of the Builder's Club updates are making users believe that this is becoming more of a reality. * BossRush: [[http://www.roblox.com/Roblox-Mythology-Birth-of-Roblox-place?id=20804021 This once-popular game]] is nothing but a long string of boss battles. * BuiltWithLego: Though mentions to LEGO, or any similar brick-building videogame (excluding ''{{Minecraft}}'' now) is censored, and the devs make a point that ROBLOX is "not sponsored, authorized or endorsed by any producer of plastic building bricks". * CoolHat: There's tons of them, considering that Roblox rivals VideoGame/TeamFortress2 in being a glorified hat simulator. * CosmeticAward: Badges, unless the user makes a script to recognize particular Badges, like in ''[[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Ro-Fortress 2]]''. * CutAndPasteEnvironments: There's most tycoons and obstacle courses that are actually relatively the same, but they represent it differently. * DialogueTree: With the new Dialog feature, these sometimes pop up, under the name "Dialog Choices". ** You can even use Lua scripting there. * DieChairDie: There are places dedicated to blowing anything up. * DramaticGunCock: Some guns allow you to do one. But it's awesomer if pointed at someone's head. "I love you so much" * Gunshot* * DroppedABridgeOnHim: Or just about anything, including [[ColonyDrop the moon]] or [[FallingChandelierOfDoom a chandelier]]. * EpicFail: During an Easter event, the admins created a script that would make collectible egg hats rain from the [[{{Skybox}} sky]] in every game. Unfortunately, most of the time the eggs never fell, and if they did, they were broken. * EternalSeptember: Yeah. * FixedCamera * FloatingContinent: Every basic level structure. Most levels are just a flat base on nothing, and anything that falls off the side of the level falls until they hit the area where all bricks are removed. Some levels play the trope more straight, with actual floating islands. * FollowTheLeader: Obbys, which are usually [[FloatingContinent floating masses of land]] normally filled with are known as Free Models. (Which are models which people release to the public which are normally slapped onto places to make a place with little effort, like Lava Bricks, Spinners, Obby Pieces and such. Though they are models that have been released to the public, so I guess there isn't much excuse not to use them. ) It's impossible to browse the front page without seeing at least one "WHO KILD [[SpongebobSquarepants SPONGBAWB]] OBBI" or something similar. * {{Foreshadowing}}: The Sword Pack hat's description hinted at the Ascended Glitch entry above. * FunWithAcronyms: Most the chosen names for war clans are acronyms. * GameBreakingBug: ** The HUD update completely removed user messages and hints in-game, which made some places potentially {{Unwinnable}} if those hints/messages contained clues or passwords. [[hottip:*:The update changed how they work, which caused the problems. Rather than being a direct child of the player, a player-specific Hint or Message has to be a child of [=player.PlayerGui=], so all that is required is a script adjustment. On the other hand, there are some games that haven't been updated in years and use the old message format.]] ** Changes in the physics engine have broken many popular places that depend on certain physics objects. The [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy Super Roblox Galaxy]] series, for example, was broken when the "[=RocketPropulsion=]" object was {{nerf}}ed to be non-functional as a child of a brick controlled by a Player (namely, the torso). * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Sometimes a model or two will slip by that are not for our youth. * {{GIFT}}: Justified, usually. It's a site aimed mainly towards kids, so most of the time they're just... y'know... being kids. * GuideDangIt: A few of the presents in the Christmas events were difficult to figure out before they were released. * HealingFactor: Your avatar can heal damage in most cases. ** Some places, such as [[Left4Dead Reason 2 Die]], don't allow damage to be healed unless the avatar uses a health kit. * HotPotato: [[http://www.roblox.com/Hot-Potato-item?id=25741198 This gear,]] that after being activated, can be passed onto another player. And then the player explodes. * ImprobableWeaponUser: So, so many. One of the default weapons is a superball, and there's nothing preventing you from making a cannon that shoots teapots or ducks. * InterfaceScrew: The official Paintball Guns will splatter on your screen in red, blue, green, magenta, or orange when they hit. Also, the Agonizingly Ugly Egg of Screensplat from the Easter 2010 event displayed a large fried egg whenever you picked it up. A few scripts using fog and ambience can screw your interface, particularly with malevolent exploiters. * KillItWithFire: The flame graphic. Many players have already made their own flamethrowers, and there is an official Roblox-made one. * LudicrousGibs: When a player dies, they fall apart, allowing their limbs to be kicked around. It's even better when they're killed by a explosion, as all their parts go flying into the air. ** Some places even have scripts that make the player's guts blast out in different directions the instant they die to expand on this trope. * MoreDakka: Some weapons are this. One truely insane weapon is the [[GatlingGood Dual Vulcans]]. That's right, '''''dual-wielding miniguns'''''. * NeverSayDie: "Bloxxed" and "Wipeout", apparently. ** Some places avert this, saying "Kill" and "Death" instead of "Blox" and "Wipeout". * NiceHat: There's a lot of weird/nice/awesome hats. And I mean '''A LOT.''' ** Over '''1000 awesome hats!''' Can be taken to the extreme because you can wear ''three hats at once.'' * PleaseSubscribeToOurChannel: Try finding a comment that ''isn't'' advertising a place or one of those "do this, earn 400000 Robux" scams. * PressXToDie: A very common tool is the Reset tool, which kills the player so they can respawn. More recently, it's been integrated into GUI form. * ProductPlacement: Roblox has been advertising the cards that are being sold at various convenience stores for some time. * {{Ragequit}}: Newer players and Guests will often do this when they get killed, but it's less of a Ragequit and more of a "Oh my god, my character [[LudicrousGibs has fallen apart]]! What do I do, what do I do, what do I do?!" quit. ** Some people announce they're quitting on the forums. No one gives half a crap. * RandomlyDrops: All the the eggs during the egg hunt, but the Fabergé Eggs take the cake. They all are [[IncrediblyLamePun eggs-tremely]] rare, and the Golden Fabergé egg of Hivemind is so rare that the calculated drop chance for it is about ''3 in 190 Blue Fabergé eggs''. See [[http://blog.roblox.com/?p=2711 this]] for a bit more detail. * RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Just about everyone is a humanoid robot made of plastic. ** And bodies can take it a step further, creating VideoGame/MegaMan-esque Robloxians. ** Averted when characters die and fall apart. But, some places have ragdoll scripts, which keep your character in one piece upon death. * RuleOfFun: Really, the entire game is based on this. [[http://www.roblox.com/Survive-The-81-Disasters-BADGES-item?id=18540115 Why are you in an accident prone house trying to survive over 80 different disasters]]? Because it's fun. [[http://www.roblox.com/Fall-Down-Stairs-BADGE-GLITCHING-FIXED-item?id=6139078 Why are you falling down a flight of stairs, probably breaking all of your bones in the process?]] Because it's fun. [[http://www.roblox.com/The-Underground-War-REVAMPED-item?id=189632 Why are you using a sword to dig underground into the other team's base to capture their flag?]] Because it's fun. [[http://www.roblox.com/Sword-Fights-on-the-Heights-IV-item?id=47324 Why are you on a series of mountaintops, fighting with swords?]] Because it's fun. [[http://www.roblox.com/Solar-Conquest-MEGA-place?id=4783435 Why are you playing around in a group of planets?]] Because it's fun. And most important, why is [[BuiltWithLego Everything built with LEGO]]? Because it's fun. * SceneryPorn: Very prevalent in some levels. There are several sky boxes which play this trope very straight. * SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: One popular map was a space map with different planets you could visit and build things on. If the avatars were 6 feet tall, the planets would be less than a mile apart. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because who wants to spend hours flying through featureless space when you could be building [[RuleOfCool interplanetary bridges]]? * ScrewballSerum: The Witches' Brew makes your head grow and change colors. * ShoutOut: The ''8-bit Wonder'' hat is pretty much a Shout Out to 8-bit [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] games. ** In similar fashion, the ''8-Bit Throwing Barrel gear'' is a shout out to [[DonkeyKong Donkey Kong]], and the ''8-bit Marvel'' is pretty much an 8-bit [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Master Sword]]. ** The [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Mildly Disturbing Mask and Marginally Less Modest Pile of Hats]]. The former looks a lot like the Scout's Mildly Disturbing Halloween Mask, except green, and the latter is two extra words from another hat. ** [[http://www.roblox.com/Exoflex-Spax-Helmex-item?id=17735403 The Exoflex Spax Helmex.]] It's an obvious homage to Music/DaftPunk. ** [[http://www.roblox.com/Cthulhu-item?id=16385361 This hat]] lets robloxians dress up as none other than [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu.]] ** [[http://www.roblox.com/Quijibo-item?id=10907532 This face.]] It's [[{{Kwyjibo}} Quijibo,]] the [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons fat, balding, North American ape with no chin.]] * {{Skybox}}: What makes the skies in the majority of games. * SturgeonsLaw: Inevitable in a game where 95% of the content is user-created. * StuffBlowingUp: Since everything is made out of bricks, explosions can reduce a destructible building into rubble. ** This leads to places which are pretty much nothing but using bombs and rockets to blow up a single, giant building. Some places take it further by using moving, working trains as targets for the explosions, [[RuleOfCool which pretty much cranks up the coolness]] [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven.]] * SwordFight: Some [[http://www.roblox.com/Sword-Fighting-Tournament-READ-DESC-place?id=14375697 places]] are dedicated to it, but others may have the sword along with other weapons. * TheManyDeathsOfYou: Some places take this to the extreme by making the whole level define this trope. * {{Troll}}: The forums are vast troll feeding grounds. * TropesForDummies: The hat ''Quantum Thermodynamics for Dummies''. * UtilityWeapon: Several, one of the most popular being the Gravity Coil. * VirtualPaperDoll: You can customize your avatar with a variety of hats, shirts, etc. * WideOpenSandbox: '''And how!''' * YouHaveResearchedBreathing: Some things that are simple and easy to do in everyday life are either impossible to do in Roblox, or need a ridiculous amount of scripting to be able to be done. Like skateboards, bicycling, or even ''swinging on a swing set''. * YourHeadASplode: Early space levels have a script that, unless you are wearing an astronaut helmet, causes your head to swell up and explode. * XMeetsY: VideoGame/TeamFortress2 meets {{Minecraft}}.

Blatant Lies - added more information. Artificial Stupidity - changed a bit of the wording.
* ArtificialStupidity: The commonly-used AI zombies have absolutely no pathfinding AI to them. They'll just walk into barriers harmlessly. Justified if you look at the scripting- all you'll find is that the Torso of most zombies is set to move towards the closest player.
