* ''Film/GleahanAndTheKnavesOfIndustry:'' In their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksr2S_4LCPw crowdfunding video,]] the production team called this "a movie full of tropey goodness." It helps that director [[Tropers/AwSamWeston Samuel T Weston]] is a [[TroperWorks Troper]] himself and edited this very entry![[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Kyi0WNg40 Dun-DUN-dun!]][[/note]]

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' is a show based in the Film/MarvelCinematicUniverse, so naturally it indexes superhero tropes as well as Adventure tropes, Comedy tropes, Drama tropes etc.

* ''Literature/TheUglyBarnacle'' is only 13 words long (15 if you count TheEnd), but it has 103 tropes, plus another 32 under [[YMMV/TheUglyBarnacle YMMV]] and [[Characters/TheUglyBarnacle 27 character tropes]], averaging out to 12.4 (or 10.8) tropes ''[[UpToEleven per word]]''.
** How about 2.8 tropes '''''[[UpToEleven per letter?]]'''''

* The 2016 [[Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016 remake]] of ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' plays many of the tropes of the original, and indeed westerns in general completely straight. But it's done with such love and as a GenreThrowback that it's thoroughly enjoyable.

* The more action genre oriented 2016 [[Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016 remake]] of ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' ''[[Film/TheMagnificentSeven1960 The Magnificent Seven]]'' plays many some of the tropes of the original, and indeed westerns many tropes tied to the western in general completely straight. But it's done with such love and as a GenreThrowback that it's thoroughly enjoyable.

** For an example of the sheer number of tropes 40k uses, take a WikiWalk through the various DarkerAndEdgier tropes, and [[TvtropesDrinkingGame take a shot]] for every quotes page that has a ''Warhammer 40,000'' section. You will be totally smashed by the time you're done.

** ''Anime/KillLaKill'': A HotBlooded loner who fights against an established rule to avenge her father along with her [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} wacky]] best friend, and gains a rival who's her complete opposite in every way. And that's just the beginning of the series; as it continues, it pours on ''even more'' tropes on top of the ones already established. Considering [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt the]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann works]] the directors have previously worked on, this was more than likely intentional.

** [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda The whole series]] is really like this. TheChosenOne must find the SwordOfPlotAdvancement ''and'' [[GottaCatchEmAll all the pieces]] of the [[MacGuffin plot device]] -- every one of which is in a TempleOfDoom -- so he can stop TheHorde, cut through the QuirkyMinibossSquad and slay/banish the SorcerousOverlord, all to SaveThePrincess and liberate TheKingdom. And it is one of the most [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome beloved and respected]] video game franchises of all time.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' centers around a {{Samurai}} who is raised from birth to defeat a LargeHam MadeFromEvil BigBad. Then they're [[TimeTravel flung into the future]], which is a BadFuture VillainWorld, and has a SeriesGoal to get back to the past and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', in spades. Just check out the length of their page. And there's even more than what you can find on their own page. Pick a random trope, any trope. Chances are, there will be an example from The Simpsons there.

* ''[[VideoGame/DarkSoulsI Dark Souls ]]'' and its sequels, ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', milk just about every possible medieval fantasy trope and some more, [[SequelEscalation increasingly so]]. Be it setting, characters, creatures, equipment and even weapons, these games don't spare any detail when making a vast world with an interesting lore. This is on top of bearing many references to Creator/FromSoftware's works in ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and the ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' franchise, as well as incorporating countless NintendoHard elements.
