** His penchant for snappy dialogue, snarkasm, and BuffySpeak is very distinctive. He did some ScriptDoctor work on the script of the first ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'' movie, but only two exchanges of dialogue made it to the final cut, and one of them has his fingerprints all over it:

** Look out also for his tendency to make up for his total aversion to TechnoBabble by adding the word 'space' to existing nouns. Someone will be a doctor of 'space medicine'; an alien race's headquarters is referred to as being 'in Space' by space-travellers, and so on.

* Creator/ToshikiInoue, a prominent Tokusatsu writer known for his work on ''KamenRider'', is really known for his use of the ConflictBall and PoorCommunicationKills. Sometimes, the plot of the show could be solved if the characters would just sit down and talk to each other for just a few minutes, but due to often contrived circumstances, they just keep fighting one and another. Also, if there is a romance in the show, you can count on it that the female involved in the romance will die to give the male character motivation to fight the villains.

** MarkGoodson-Bill Todman: Early on, panel games (''Series/IveGotASecret'', ''Series/ToTellTheTruth'', ''Series/WhatsMyLine'', etc.). Later on, more varied, with everything from ''Series/MatchGame'' to ''Series/FamilyFeud'' to ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' to several revivals of the Bob Stewart-created ''Series/{{Password}}''. Most of these followed very simple formats that still exuded great deals of variety in their content. Almost always announced by Johnny Olson (until his 1985 death) or Gene Wood.

** His penchant for WomenInRefrigerators (or perhaps just AnyoneCanDie in general) is [[LampshadeHanging called out]] during the Dr. Horrible Comic-Con panel: "You kill a lot of chicks."

* YasukoKobayashi, known for writing multiple Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series, has a very unique style of writing. She almost never plays tropes straight, depends on ShowDontTell and does not shy away from introducing new tropes to the Tokusatsu genre. TVtropes even has an analysis on her signature style, which can be found [[Analysis/YasukoKobayashi here]].

** And the same character types. Watch ''The American President'' and ''TheWestWing'' and then tell us A.J. [=MacInerney=] and Leo [=McGarry=] aren't the same character. Same with Lewis Rothschild and Josh Lyman, and that gets more fun when you add in ''Studio 60'' and ''A Few Good Men'', because Matt Albie and Dan Caffee are also the same character as Lewis and Josh.

* Does the show you are watching take place in the past, focus primarily on women and their relationships with each other, handle what should be impossibly melodramatic storylines in a way that makes them, instead, utterly believable and heartbreaking, contain at least one romantic storyline which is restrained in expression yet incredibly profound, show the goodness of humanity in the midst of tragedy, and require everyone to [[EarnYourHappyEnding Earn Their Happy Ending]]? Congratulations, you're watching something written by Heidi Thomas. See, for instance, ''Lilies'', ''BalletShoes'', ''Series/{{Cranford}}'', the ''UpstairsDownstairs'' revival, and ''Series/CallTheMidwife''.
