In [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genus%E2%80%93differentia_definition logic terms]], the Super Trope would be the genus, and the sub tropes the differentia.

Do not confuse this with different tropes simply having a common element. That is a standard index. Although a super trope can be an index if it has enough sub tropes.

Let's say you have tropes for "Scarf Juggling" and "Knife Juggling". Just plain "Juggling" would be the Super Trope for both of them.

In short, if you took every example of a super trope and combined with every example of its sub tropes, they would all count as examples of the super trope. Therefore, only the lowest level subtrope needs to be listed in an example list. The subtropes imply the presence of the supertrope.

In short,
them. The key point is that the definition of a sub trope must include the definition of the super trope, just with special qualifiers that make it distinct.

Now even
if you took the definition must be included, that doesn't necessarily mean every example must be. In most cases, every sub trope example would also count as an example of a the super trope, but there are some exceptions due to the nature of some tropes. PinkProductPloy includes the definition of PinkMeansFeminine, but as an aspect to sell products, not to make the products fit the trope (so something considered masculine wouldn't be the super trope and combined with just because it's colored pink; its merely relying on the color association to appear feminine). Fortunately its always best to list sub trope examples on their sub trope pages instead of their supertrope ones[[note]]since it helps keeps page lengths from bloating[[/note]], so you needn't worry about whether every example of its sub tropes, they would all count as examples of the fits is super trope. Therefore, only the lowest level subtrope needs to be listed in an example list. The subtropes imply the presence of the supertrope.

* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty covers a number of {{trope}}s that are both CombatTropes (like TTCMFD itself) and not necessarily related to combat. One of those second {{trope}}s, WeNeedADistraction, is a SuperTrope with a number of {{subtrope}}s of its own.

* {{Badass}} can come in so many forms, because {{badass}} is just too awesome to contain in one.
