* {{Boarding Pod}}s and {{Drop Pod}}s are both for getting troops from a ship to a target in a [[DynamicEntry surprising fashion]]. The difference is the target: drop pods are launched onto a planet surface as a futuristic version of ItsRainingMen, while boarding pods are fired at other ships or at stations to deploy a BoardingParty.

Both also share a link with {{Escape Pod}}s in that all three are used to get from one place to another in a hurry; however, Escape Pods are primarily used to take people ''away'' from dangerous places, while the former two put them in harm's way.

* A victor indulging in UnsportsmanlikeGloating and the defeated party being a SoreLoser are diametric opposite responses based on whether one is victorious or defeated. They are also often conjoined, in that it's very likely for a Unsportsmanlike Gloater in victory to be a SoreLoser in defeat.

* The ''GreenHillZone'' and ''PalmtreePanic'' levels are similar because they are greeny, tropical stages commonly designed and used as the first level in Video Games, [[PlatformGame platformers]] most especially, due to their non-threatening geography and easy-going design. The ''Green Hill Zone'' is more inland and varied with plains, prairies, hills, and even some trees and caves. While ''Green Hill Zone'' can have tropical elements, what distinguishes a ''Palmtree Panic'' is the ''strictly'' tropical setting, with beaches, dunes, and ''lots'' more sand and water to go around. Green Hill Zone's other sister ''TheLostWoods'' is strictly a forest setting.

When defining a trope, it often helps to establish its similarities, differences and relationship to other tropes; a common convention on this site is to refer to some tropes as Sister Tropes.

When two or more tropes have some overlap in their descriptions, "parentage", or use, but not enough for one to be a SubTrope or SuperTrope of the other, these are called {{Sister Trope}}s. That is, both have a similar form or function, either by category ([[CharactersAsDevice character]], [[{{Plots}} plot]]) or by effect ([[CharacterizationTropes characterization]]) rendering them both similar but distinct enough to be considered equals. [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad Not that there's anything wrong with]] subtropes!

* TheAce and ParodySue are closely related concepts with different intentions and execution. Both are (usually) played for comedy, but while the former is an idealized character who's over-the-top nature is played for laughs, the latter is a TakeThat against a fandom in general.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl and ShamelessFanserviceGirl. Both are girls who have no nudity taboo. But one is aware of the existence of nudity taboos, and the other isn't.

* InnocentFanserviceGirl and ShamelessFanserviceGirl. Both are girls who have no nudity taboo. But one is aware of the existence of nudity taboos, and the other isn't. Both are also sisters to the ReluctantFanserviceGirl; while all three generally end up exposing a lot of skin, the first two do so willingly, while the last only does so because the Universe conspires to leave her naked at the worst times.

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething and LadyOfWar occasionally overlap.
* LethalChef and ItTastesLikeFeet are sister tropes.
* OneJudgeToRuleThemAll and GoldenSnitch are sister tropes.
* So are GargleBlaster and HideousHangoverCure.

to:

* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething and LadyOfWar occasionally overlap.
overlap, as royalty is generally expected to look elegant at all times.
* If a LethalChef and ItTastesLikeFeet prepares a meal for you, chances are sister tropes.
ItTastesLikeFeet.
* OneJudgeToRuleThemAll and GoldenSnitch are sister tropes.
tropes, as both are about a single condition that renders all other factors in a contest irrelevant.
* So are GargleBlaster and HideousHangoverCure. One is the cause of hangovers, while the other is the cure, but ''both'' are absolutely outrageous.
