* Creator/IsaacAsimov -- Most science fiction in the past 50 years, particularly the robot subgenre, owes a lot to Asimov. Even StarWars is based on ''Literature/{{Foundation}}''.

* ''ShinMegamiTensei'' -- Created the {{Mons}} RPG sub-genre. Its source material, ''Literature/DigitalDevilStory'', is a brutal {{deconstruction}} of the genre, making it {{unbuilt|Trope}}.
** ''ShinMegamiTenseiI'' was also revolutionary in its handling of apocalyptic disasters, angels, gods, demons, balance of power and morality in the face of TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

* ''SonicTheHedgehog'' -- Pioneered the MascotWithAttitude.
* ''SpaceInvaders'' -- Created the ShootEmUp genre. In addition, it was the first video game with a difficulty curve - by accident! The more sprites on the screen, the slower the game ran. As players eliminated enemy ships, those remaining moved faster, becoming harder to hit.

* Creator/JulesVerne's ''Literature/JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'' is considered the first sci-fi story, although there are {{Ur Example}}s. Verne also made submarines cool with ''Literature/TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea'', as well as the ideas of ship graveyards and Atlantis. ''Literature/FromTheEarthToTheMoon'' also sparked off space travel.

And, of course, don't confuse with UrExample -- the earliest example that has the essence of the trope, but may not have the actual connotations and may be missing details. However, it's the Trope Maker which starts the consistent enough pattern to be called a trope.

** His short story "The Chronic Argonauts" (1888) and novel ''Literature/TheTimeMachine'' (1895) are the source of the term "time machine", and thus a Trope Maker for TimeTravel -- but not the UrExample, because a few authors had time machines before Wells.
