For instance, one of the pivotal Trope Makers of the DetectiveStory is Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's collection of Dupin stories; before Dupin, there is no story ''genre'' of fictional detectives going about the business of solving crimes. Nevertheless, while you may or may not know Poe's Dupin stories, you've [[TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples probably encountered]] a certain Danish Prince named Theater/{{Hamlet}}, who not only sets about to ensnare his uncle [[VillainWithGoodPublicity King Claudius]], but even incorporates into his plans a [[MetaFiction play-within-a-play]] he dubs "[[Creator/AgathaChristie The Mousetrap]]." And half a millennium earlier still, "The Tale of the Three Apples" is a proto-DetectiveStory from [[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of One Thousand and One Nights]] -- which makes "The Tale of the Three Apples" the Ur-Example of the DetectiveStory, or at least a possible candidate. However, Theatre/OedipusRex, first performed in 429 B.C., depicts Oedipus investigating the cause of the plague that has struck his realm.

* Music/TheBeatles have another example here with "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", in which they effectively played DoomMetal at least a few months before Music/BlackSabbath did. "Helter Skelter", as mentioned above, is a possible UrExample for metal in general (and has arguably had a pretty big influence on speed and thrash metal in particular). The Beatles are pretty much TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples for rock music.

* ''Night Life'' was the first eroge, released in 1982 for the venerable PC-8801 by {{Creator/Koei}}. It was not much of a success, lacking a cohesive plot and attractive visuals, but featured complex objectives to bed women and "win" the game.

* The concept of being an Ur-Example and leaving deep impression in the collective psyche of humanity is {{Conversed}} in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. Basically, the older the legend and the better it is known, the more powerful the heroes and villains of that legend are when brought into reality. Gilgamesh, being the oldest hero in recorded history, is the strongest of Heroic Spirits and bears the title "King of Heroes".
** Gilgamesh also possesses "prototypes" of all legendary weapons that were created throughout history, each being the Ur-Example of weapons that share a certain core trait. The example highlighted is Merodach, the original "sword stuck in stone that chooses the king" which acted as the template for Gram and Caliburn. Merodach is superior to Gram and Caliburn because its status as an Ur-Example [[OlderIsBetter gives it a stronger legend]].
