** In all PAL regions however the trope codifier for the JRPG genre has to be ''VideoGame/PhantasyStar'', because the first ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game that came out over there was ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. ''Franchise/DragonQuest'' had it even worse, as the first installment released over there was ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII''. The same could be said about strategy RPG's because ''VideoGame/OgreBattle'' was never released there and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' only came out there when it was remade on the GBA. Making ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' a very likely candidate for those regions.

* Wrestling/{{CMLL}}'s mini estrellas were the trope makers for having the same [[TheGimmick gimmick]] on multiple wrestlers of different sizes, but Wrestling/{{AAA}} codified the idea with its mascot division, where every {{tag team}} had to be made up of a larger wrestler and smaller mascot\smaller wrestler and larger mascot.

** Arguably, the Italian proto-slasher ''{{giallo}}'' film ''Film/ReazioneACatena'' was the trope codifier for ''Film/FridayThe13th1980'' itself (and, by extension, slasher movies with its derivative formula), featuring the aforementioned DeathBySex trope; a [[DontGoInTheWoods seemingly desolate forest setting]] (on an idyllic waterfront, no less); an [[KillEmAll exceedingly high body count]]; and an all-around liberal employment of {{Gorn}}. Indeed, both ''Friday the 13th'' and its first sequel directly recreated certain scenes from ''Reazione a Catena'' (including [[spoiler:spearing a copulating couple to death ''twice'' and embedding a sharp instrument in a respective victim's face]]). Earlier ''gialli'' (and American slasher antecedents such as ''Film/{{Psycho}}'') also employed certain variations of these tropes, but not in formulaic tandem with one another.

* Even though ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}'' was the UrExample of the SpaceMarine trope in videogames, ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' became the poster boy for the trope for the post-2000 generation. It also didn't actually ''pioneer'' any of the revolutions in gameplay it featured (all of them, from limited inventory, to RegeneratingHealth, to QuickMelee attacks, to separate buttons for firearms and grenades, had been done before in previous games), but it is unquestionably the game which popularized them all to the point that most modern First Person Shooters now use them by default.

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' was the Codifier for {{Platform Game}}s (see TheOtherWiki's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platformer#Scrolling_era article on platform games]]).
** And ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' was definitely not the Trope Maker for 3D Platformers (see TheOtherWiki's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platformer#Third_dimension article on platform games]]), but was definitely what all later games imitated.
