This doesn't just happen to currently in progress works, either. An old book or show can ride to sudden prominence and attain the mass. A VitalizingEdit may cause fans to realize a favourite show NeedsMoreLove indeed. SugarWiki/AndTheFandomRejoiced might mean every detail of a ''coming'' work that gets leaked to be gobbled up and added to the mass. What counts is the burst of interest and activity that sends a work's/trope's examples count from a short list to a suddenly comprehensive one.

A sustained period under Troper Critical Mass can rapidly put something in the TropeOverdosed ranks. The mass can be broken/ turned to AccentuateTheNegative if things go sour in a work-- say, TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot or you realize TheChrisCarterEffect has kicked in.

You are witnessing a show in {{Troper Critical Mass}}. A whole mass of us turning to add to a show, {{trope}} or other wiki page. This is the WikiMagic writ large, when interest, dedication and focus all hit at once, and a page just grows.

Note that trying to ''engineer'' a {{Troper Critical Mass}} is rather hard. You have to cultivate the desired interest, keep people involved, and prevent them from drifting. Given that controlling any notable group of people, let alone Tropers requires... well, BizarreAndImprobableGiraffeHerdingTechniques, it's best to just ride the wave.

However, some decent {{Troper}} attraction methods include: being {{Troperiffic}}, having particularly GenreSavvy characters, or basically giving us lots and lots of material to write about. {{Averted Trope}}s and {{Subverted Trope}}s also helps. {{Deconstruction}} helps ''greatly''. Tropers love those.

A sustained period under {{Troper Critical Mass}} can rapidly put something in the TropeOverdosed ranks. The mass can be broken/ turned to AccentuateTheNegative if things go sour in a work-- say, TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot or you realize TheChrisCarterEffect has kicked in.

Needless to say, it's going to have a lot of [[{{Wick}} wicks]]... not to mention a massive number of {{spoiler}}s, to the point where we occasionally just stop hiding them because [[ItWasHisSled every Troper who visits the page has heard about them]].

Yeah. And-- Wow! Looks like everyone-- Alice, Bob, Carol, even that Lurker Zeke has added an edit or two! And this is only a few episodes into the first season!
