* Pretty much the whole ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' could fit in the trope, specially after ''Symphonia''. They combine bizillions of tropes with some well-calculated unexpected twists and/or original ways of presenting those tropes. And, ironically, thanks to that they manage to pull off some great, hard-to-forget stories. In other words, in Namco Tales Studio know very well what they're doing.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Webcomic/{{MS Paint Adventure|s}} that is currently in progress, does the same thing for simulation games, fantasy, and sci-fi that ''Problem Sleuth'' did for adventure games, noir, and Anime-style action. Many time travel tropes, a jillion different kinds of AppliedPhlebotinum, video game themed {{technobabble}}, characters with increasingly bizarre traits, and a great big heaping of JustForFun/TropesOfLegend all mix together with a great soundtrack and whimsical art style into the one of the most Troperiffic things in existence. The main work page itself [[TroperCriticalMass became so long]] that the tropes listed had to be put into folders! In fact, ''Homestuck'' as well as other hugely Troperiffic franchises are in part responsible for some of the recent server crashes. They have so many tropes they are crashing the site.

* ''Film/TheFifthElement''. MysteriousWaif? Check. LargeHam SissyVillain? Check. [[TestosteronePoisoning Ultra-manly man]] ActionHero played by BruceWillis? Check. RubberForeheadAliens, [[FlyingCar hovercar]] [[ChaseScene chases]], WaifFu, [[EldritchAbomination the Ultimate Evil]], and [[spoiler:the world being saved through ThePowerOfLove]]? Check, check, check, check, ''check.'' This movie is practically cheesy sci-fi incarnate, and it's AWESOME.

Added DiffLines:

* Because it's a 200 page book with far, far more tropes than that to cover, ''Literature/HelpMyStoryHasTheMarySueDisease'' uses three or four tropes per example, relying on the sheer recognisabilty of the tropes to make it's explanations of highly theoretical issues in fiction easy to follow.

* The [[AntiHero main character]] of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' carries a [[ClicheStorm hefty bag of tropes]] all by himself from a [[BadassLongcoat half]] [[BadassCrew dozen]] {{Badass}} [[OneManArmy tropes]] to [[AbsurdlySharpBlade nearly]] [[BladeAcrossTheShoulder every]] [[DeadlyLunge single]] [[CoolSword Cool]] {{BFS}} [[AncestralWeapon trope]]. Every other aspect of the 5 games, anime series, manga, and 4 books just piles on more. However, it's this same UpToEleven use of tropes to create one CrazyAwesome classic.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' throws all the unnecessary bits like plotting and storyline out and gives a varied, memorable cast who all have a very distinct but very expected way of [[BadAss kicking ass]]. It basically turns away from the modern notion of more "realistic" multiplayer FPS games for a full and complete embracing of the RuleOfFun. To put it differently, it caters to about a dozen different categories of tropes. Each of the nine characters has a trope-tastic personality and/or {{backstory}} ([[HuskyRusskie The Heavy]], [[ScaryBlackMan The]] [[ViolentGlaswegian Demo]][[DrunkenMaster man]], as well as many weapons that apply for tropes (BatterUp, GrievousBottleyHarm, StuffBlowingUp, etc). In addition to [[CaptainObvious first-person shooter]] tropes, it also has a few RPG/MMORPG tropes, with the class system and all.

** ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' ''definitely'' counts as this: a KidHero, an IdiotHero, a SmallGirlBigGun, and a [[TheIngenue pure hearted]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses lost princess]], [[ScrewDestiny kick logic and fate to the curb]] and [[BeyondTheImpossible do the impossible]] with HumongousMecha, [[ThisIsADrill Drills]], InTheNameOfTheMoon speeches, and [[HotBlooded craploads of Hot Blood]]. [[ArcWords Yours is the drill]] [[FreudWasRight that will pierce the heavens]], indeed!
