Related to OlderThanTheyThink. If a Trope Codifier is particularly influential, and the Trope Maker a little twisted you may have an UnbuiltTrope. Even the Trope Codifier itself may qualify as Unbuilt Trope because it tends to frequently contradict modern interpretations of said trope (and indeed most Trope Codifiers often have several major Unbuilt Tropes). There may also be a Series D which is the [[TropeNamers Trope Namer]], which is a series that uses the trope so commonly, so appropriately (or inappropriately, as the case may be), or so memorably,[[labelnote:*]]Or so [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Pun punnily]]; tropers can't resist a good pun[[/labelnote]] that it provides a name for the trope.

* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' is the trope codifier for the single camera, on-location, LaughTrack-free sitcom that became popular on United States broadcast television during the 2000's. There were a handful of pre-''Malcolm'' shows that featured such setups, but these (namely ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'' and ''Series/TheLarrySandersShow'', both of which qualify as the Trope Maker of such setups) aired on either pay or niche ''cable'' channels as opposed to the then-more popular broadcast television netowrks.

* Music/TheBeatles were the codifiers for TheBritishInvasion, the modern rock band lineup and writing conventions, and, with Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand, modern recording techniques such as layered, multi-track production.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Evangelion'' can also be said to have taken the trope UpToEleven as it completely redefined ''the whole medium of TV anime'' and what it could do. Before ''Evangelion'' the vast majority of TV anime was either adaptations of popular manga or family-friendly programs, but the show paved the way for several AnimeFirst franchises which explored darker and more mature themes, material that before had been largely relegated to direct-to-video productions (the so-called [=OVAs=]) and therefore only reached a niche marked.

** ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}'' can also be considered the Trope Codifier for integrated musicals in general. Prior "musicals" were generally either plays interrupted by occasional songs or flimsy plots that were just an excuse to move between song and dance numbers. Show Boat is usually considered the first musical to integrate song, dance, and story, but it was hard for others to imitate. ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}'' provided a template that other musicals used pretty much until AndrewLloydWebber showed up.

* ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'' pretty much started the trend of realistic/organic level design in FPSes. While Quake was far superior from a technological standpoint (being the first all 3D FPS)the levels were infamously bland with green castle followed by grey castle followed by brown dungeon. Duke had levels with never before seen interactivity. Light switches, mirrors, CCTVs, wall sockets that electrocute you, televisions, rooms that make sense (like a bar, hotel rooms, nightclubs, reactors for the moonbase).
