* The Film/CarryOn franchise confided AffectionateParody because of their movies based on other films and genres; it also broke barriers between claims of copyright from Hollywood, who threatened to sue them, eventually losing their case in court.[[note]]This is probably the reason why parody is filed under Fair Use.[[/note]] However, the movies were the TropeMaker of AwfulBritishSexComedy (the confiders were ''Film/ConfessionsOfA'' series) due to the use of explicit nudity [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar in a time when British media was against it]]. Ironically, when the Carry On franchise did a parody full of blatant {{fanservice}}, it was called [[FanonDiscontinuity one of the worst in the series]].

* Peter Rabbit along with his sisters Mopsy,Flopsy, and Cottontail from ''Literature/TheTaleOfPeterRabbit'' serve as the codifier for the earliest use of bunnies seen eating a carrot which has become a [[StockAnimalDiet major stereotype for bunnies in general]]. The rabbit characters could also be one of the earliest uses of [[BunniesForCuteness rabbits seen in media that are portrayed as cute and adorable looking]] which wasn't a common trope for bunnies back when the original story was made in 1901. But would later become one of the more well-known tropes associated for rabbits besides the RascallyRabbit Trope which has also been popularized thanks to WesternAnimation/BugsBunny.

* During the Golden Age of the WesternRPG, the codifier was ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}''. The first-person, party-based DungeonCrawler format became the standard format for computer [=RPGs=]. ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' remained a major series, but largely did its own thing with its top-down maps and slightly greater focus on story (though it was extremely influential on the codifiers of the EasternRPG). Ultima's influence [[VindicatedByHistory was recognized much later]]; the core series was a major influence on ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'', and the groundbreaking ''VideoGame/UltimaUnderworld'' was the TropeMaker for the Bethesda-style WideOpenSandbox.

'''Important''': "Trope Codifier" does not mean SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample. It means "Example that has fingerprints of influence on all later examples of the trope". The true marker of a Codifier is that it invents some unique spin on the trope that ''all'' later examples have some reaction to. Take, for example, {{Werewolves}}. There were earlier examples of werewolf stories, but it is with 1941's ''[[Film/TheWolfMan1941 The Wolf Man]]'' that we first see werewolves as an infection (previously, it was a curse or part of a DealWithTheDevil), silver vulnerability (previously, it was ''vampires'' or ghosts who were usually associated with weakness to silver), made the werewolf a human cursed to turn into a wolf-man (previously, all kinds of variations were available, from wolf that turns into a man, to man who [[BalefulPolymorph was permanently turned into a wolf]]), and tied the wolf to the night of the full moon (previously, they either focused on the three nights around the full moon, or had little to do with the phase of the moon). Almost all later examples of Werewolves bear some of these subtropes, which originated with ''The Wolf Man'', or at least [[DiscussedTrope discuss]] them in order to explain why OurWerewolvesAreDifferent. Thus, we can state with confidence that it is the Trope Codifier.
