Related to OlderThanTheyThink. If a Trope Codifier is particularly influential, and the Trope Maker a little twisted you may have an UnbuiltTrope. 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 inapproriately, 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.

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 contradicts modern interpretations of said trope (and indeed most Trope Codifies 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 inapproriately, 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.

** Chaining on that previous point, ''God of War'' is one for ActionCommands.
** Actually, God of War and Resident Evil 4 came out the same year. That would be why they're both credited. How one views the PressXToNotDie is another matter entirely.



*** ''VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever'' games for the concept of "tag battle" fighters (discounting wrestling games, which have wildly different gameplay.)

* Granted while he was not the first to do it or even make a full album out of it, but John Oswald was the one who gave the [[TropeNamer name to the genre]] Plunderphonics and also its very identity with his album Plunderphonics.

* Music/EmersonLakeAndPalmer are almost certainly the codifiers for RockMeAmadeus; they used it far, far more than anyone else had before them and brought classical works like ''Music/PicturesAtAnExhibition'' to entirely new audiences who otherwise would probably never have heard them. Each of their albums contains at least one example of this trope. Keith Emerson's previous band, The Nice, also did this a lot.
