%%%%%%%%%%%% Before adding a trope, check its page to see if it should go in the Main or Trivia tabs instead.

%% Examples with no context will be deleted.

%% TV Tropes is not a forum; don't start conversation in the main page.

%% Don't use words such as "recently," "lately," or "soon" when adding examples. They won't be recent for very long.

%%Don't spoiler trope names.

%% The numpad code to type an accented "e" (é) is Alt+130 in Windows.

%% Don't add And The Fandom Rejoiced. It's a SugarWiki page.

%% ZeroContextExample entries are not allowed on wiki pages. All such entries have been commented out. Add context to the entries before uncommenting them.

%% Only one trope per line, and don't put tropes at secondary bullet points; not even subtropes. This is proper example indentation.

%% Badass has become a fanspeak term; no longer a trope. You can still use the word, of course, but don't pothole it anymore.

Also called ''Detective Loki''. The original Japanese title, ''Matantei Loki Ragnarok'', is a pun on the word ''Meitantei'', which means "Great Detective". (''Matantei'' being "Demon Detective".) The series is by Sakura Kinoshita who also wrote the manga ''Tactics'' (alongside Kazuko Higashiyama). The manga version has two seasons, the first being simply ''Matantei Loki' and the second season is, well, ''Matantei Loki Ragnarok''.
