* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' had almost every RPG cliché you can think of at the time it was released, such as {{rebellious princess}}es with [[OrphansPlotTrinket mysterious pendants]], {{Heroic Mime}}s who live with a single mom ([[DisappearedDad no dad]]), [[GoodMorningCrono are woken up by said mom to get ready for the fair]], and SavingTheWorld from the EldritchAbomination...[[RecycledInSpace WITH TIME TRAVEL!]] Nevertheless, the story itself and the characters were praised by many for its brilliant usage of these clichés. Its successor, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', was less troperiffic than its predecessor, and that itself [[LoveItOrHateIt divided the fanbase on the game.]]

* What ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' does with sci-fi, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' does with fantasy. Okay, maybe it's not ''quite'' as whacked-out, but it's still a pretty awesome mish-mash of every fantasy trope you could care to name. One example is TheEmpire: A FantasyCounterpartCulture of the HolyRomanEmpire led by a [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure particularly]] [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking awesome]] [[TheWisePrince Emperor]] (who runs around with either the [[HeroesPreferSwords Reikland]] [[CoolSword Runefang]] or [[FounderOfTheKingdom Sigmar's]] [[AncestralWeapon own]] [[DropTheHammer warhammer]], and [[DragonRider rides]] either a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] or a [[MixAndMatchCritter griffin]]).

%% * ''Radio/TrueCapitalist''

to:

%% * ''Radio/TrueCapitalist''''[[Radio/TrueCapitalist True Capitalist Radio]]'' is quite possibly the most trope rich political talk show of all time. This is largely thanks to its energetic and extremely short tempered host whose complicated and strong political views make him a prime target for the colorful RoguesGallery of trolls that infest the show and attempt to set off one of his countless [[BerserkButton Berserk Buttons]] for their enjoyment.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Majesty}}'' has a unique PerspectiveFlip -- the PlayerCharacter is not the hero, but instead the guy who sets up the infrastructure for the heroes to go adventuring. Otherwise, the setting is an AffectionateParody of the stereotypical MedievalEuropeanFantasy.

While some works love PlayingWithATrope and others are [[ClicheStorm so lacking in self-awareness that they play everything painfully straight]][[note]] say it with me now, ''"cliii-cheee"''[[/note]], there are some gems that take delight in their {{trope}}s and then turn them UpToEleven.

Compare SerialEscalation, ExaggeratedTrope. A work that is verifiably like this can be said to be TropeOverdosed. See also JustForFun/NotableReferencesToTVTropes for ''actual references'' towards the site.

* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is basically a bunch of action heroes in an ''Film/EnterTheDragon''-style scenario. You've got the evil spirit who wants revenge, the BruceLeeClone, the actor who wants to prove his moves aren't faked, the thunder god, the Marine ActionGirl, the criminal, the Chinese assassin, the ProudWarriorRaceGuy, and the EvilSorceror. Subsequent games have added a MagicalNativeAmerican who at 6'3" is probably a plains Indian, a BadassPrincess, her evil clone who is notable for almost seeming like a good guy at first, another bunch of ProudWarriorRaceGuy[=s=], ''Terminator'' clones, the guy named after his ancestor, [[BlindWeaponmaster the blind swordsman]], and many more. And oh, yeah, the BigBad gets more and more eldritch with each game.

* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' definitely fits here. It embraces every {{Shonen}} trope there is. WideEyedIdealist ChickMagnet protagonist? Check. {{Tsundere}} with GirlishPigtails? Check. AloofDarkHairedGirl who's a MasterSwordsman? Check. LoveableSexManiac who's the protagonist's BromanticFoil? Check. [[BuxomIsBetter Busty]] CoolBigSis? Check. The combination of MoodWhiplash and the unpredictable nature of its character fates are an initial draw for the seires.

** Made even more hillarious by a real spy (Garak) accompanying Bashir in the holoprogram and lampshading how ridiculous the JamesBond elements are. Also, Garak's attempts to be a real spy in the simulation don't work because it's specifically designed to be SpyFiction of the TuxedoAndMartini variety.

* Is there any {{Metafiction|DemandedThisIndex}} trope ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' (and maybe even its spin-offs like ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'') doesn't use?[[note]]Not many, just the ones that would require actual actors. Not counting ActorAllusion.[[/note]] And half the TropesOfLegend with characters from half the CultClassic list and some from even actual classics sprinkled in. Not to mention anything even remotely related to MindScrew, {{Crossover}}, (fangirl oriented) {{Fanservice}} etc..

In short, works that are deemed {{Troperiffic}} apologize for absolutely nothing and just have fun with every convention or tried idea and taking it to places never thought possible. MST3KMantra will be sometimes be a requirement to enjoy the work, because without it, {{Troperiffic}} works can come off as confusing. Then again, a good {{Troperiffic}} work will be fairly obvious about it in some way.

Note that one person's {{Troperiffic}} is another person's ClicheStorm, although most {{Troperiffic}} works have a certain level of LampshadeHanging, sarcasm, or underlying love for the genre the work exists in. That, and RuleOfCool in copious amounts.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. Playing that game, you spend half of your time laughing as every single cliché you've ever seen pops up nicely in a row, and the other half with your finger glued to the button to see what happens next. AllLovingHero Sora, RivalTurnedEvil Riku, and DistressedDamsel Kairi are each the pure, distilled embodiments of their roles in the series. Hey we're taking about a game that's a {{crossover}} between [[Franchise/FinalFantasy two]] [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon of]] the most {{troperiffic}} franchises in existence. So it's pretty much a given.

* While ''VideoGame/RedSteel'' is a ClicheStorm, ''Red Steel 2'' is {{Troperiffic}}. ''Red Steel 2'' combines DesertPunk and {{Samurai}} tropes in every way possible. In every AWESOME way possible, mind you.
