* ''Anime/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable'' is one of the most creative murder mystery stories I've seen. The first half is your standard Araki fare of Morioh's Joestar Group beating Villains Of The Week senseless until they become friends, but once [[spoiler: Shigechi grabs Kira's hand- I mean ''sandwich'' bag and dies for it]], the narrative focses around Kira and the introduced character Reimi, as the group is sent on a mission to figure out the indentity and whereabouts of Morioh's killer. It also contains my favorite final battle of the franchise, where[[spoiler: Kira starts on top of the world, and then the odds get slowly stacked against him, as he slowly starts suffering a VillanousBSOD the farther behind he gets.]] Then comes the [[spoiler: ambulance]], and Kira is solidified as the single best Jojo villain death.

* ''{{Raiden}} Trad''. Just the title. The game is part of a series of vertical ShootEmUp games, which are decent, but I love how the title of this one just rolls off the tongue.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' manages to have some of the best writing in the entire Pokemon franchise, especially the second game. While it may initally seem like just a normal Nintendo story, your jaw will probably be on the floor by the end of the game. From the memorable and engaging characters, to the clever and shocking plot twists, to the utterly beautiful ending, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon manages to charm and surprise from start to finish.

* ''AlphaProtocol'' has one of the most complex and tightly woven plots in gaming. It has a cast that runs the gamut from the deadly serious to the comically insane, with a dozen interweaving threads dealing with issues of betrayal, government control, trust, and deception. And on top of that, the sheer number of plot threads and paths you can follow, and the lack of established morality - only results that you're looking for - make it a stunning game.

* ''OfLoveAndBunnies'', [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2213080/1/Of_Love_and_Bunnies as seen here.]] It's quite easily the greatest PowerRangers fanfic ever written (for a long time, it was the only positively-received PR fanfic with it's own article on TV Tropes). Apart from the general wacky humorous nature, the characters are so on-point and the plot is so perfectly interwoven with what was seen on-screen that it's easy to consider it behind-the-scenes canon.

* Creator/AlanMoore may just be the greatest writer in all of comics. At the very least, he writes the most detailed scripts. The first issue of Watchmen was roughly twenty-five pages. The script was more like one-hundred twenty-five. The stories are complex, maybe a little too complex at times, but very enjoyable. He can capture all the various details of his characters and use them to their fullest. Even the characters were supposed to hate, like Rorshach, seem strangely likable. And who else could make someone like the Floronic man seem awesome? He has a deep love of the comics medium, and is willing to share it with all of us. Be very thankful.

* ''Film/TheSocialNetwork'' is incredible. It's not specifically based on real-life, but it's doing a great job of being a real-life exploit. It captures the energy and the times we live in so well, from multiple different context, and Sorkin manages to make it all relatable and meaningful.

* KA Applegate; seriously, Literature/{{Animorphs}} is one of the best children series ever written (it's certainly the best scifi children series). It's dark and deep and absolutely beautiful. Everworld is fabulous and interesting and was cut short waay before its time. The fact that the ghostwritten books in both of these series are so much less awesome only speaks to how truly amazing and unique a writer she truly is.

* Harper Lee. ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' is her only novel. It has no real action, no big plot twists nor any fantasy. It's about a young girl and her lawyer father who has to defend an innocent black man. This is a subject that on paper sound so {{Anvilicious}} that you'd look away. But once you read it, you find that it is probably the most [[TearJerker sensitive]] story ever written. It is handled with subtlety and with a fantastic view: That of a grown up looking back at her childhood.

* Because Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons had limited animation, they relied on good writing to survive. And OH BOY did they have some good writing. When I was a little kid, these cartoons gave me my first real taste of both SitCom and {{Drama}}. Since, I couldn't watch the "adult" dramas like ''Series/LawAndOrder'', I'd get my dose of excitement by wondering how [[WesternAnimation/ValleyOfTheDinosaurs Lok]] would escape the cave of winds, or how [[TheBananaSplits the Three Musketeers]] would defeat King's evil twin brother. And when the jokes on normal sitcoms would go over my head, I would turn to ScoobyDoo or WackyRaces and laugh my head off at the clever jokes. Without cartoons like these, I might have been forced to watch bland stuff like *shudder* TheGetAlongGang. Yes, Creator/HannaBarbera introduced me to the wonders of well-written shows, and saved from a lifetime or boredom.
* The sweet little speech after the supernova sequence in Disney/TreasurePlanet. I spent a near hour looking, but cannot find a single trope to describe that scene except for SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}. It's backed by [[AwesomeMusic wonderful music]], great acting, and ''that hug!'' IntergenerationalFriendship and ParentalSubstitute at it's ''freaking best.''

* WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb is one of the best kids cartoons I've ever seen, and it airs on a channel showing mostly stuff I ''really'' dislike. The way they have managed to merge all the elements together into one show is astounding. I mean if you went to a TV Executive and said (say it in Doofenshmirz's voice) "Right, I have an idea for a show, it's about two boys who are step-brothers who build machines that break the laws of physics while their sister (who sees an invisible Zebra) tries to report them to their mother, and their pet Platypus is a secret agent who foils the plots of a MadScientist, usually causing whatever the boys are building/have built to be destroyed ''just'' before their mother comes back." I doubt it'd get off the ground.

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: It's so refreshing in this day and age of cartoons featuring brainless sociopaths to see a show with such well developed and memorable characters and plots that don't end with needless cruelty. It's also rare to see a show that beautifully plays {{Aesop}}s straight, instead of [[SpoofAesop cruelly parodying them.]] Best of all, despite having a mostly female cast, the show and it's characters are well rounded enough to appeal to all ages, of either gender.

In particular, the short stories in ''TheElephantVanishes'' epitomize this.

* It's insanely admirable how a mere 22 minute formatted television comedy can be as cleverly written as ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''. The series is filled with [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]], [[RunningGag Running Jokes]], and the intersecting subplots always find ways to build off of each other over time ''and'' in each individual episode. Seriously, if something seems minor, chances are it comes back into play later on.

* The writing in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series is pretty great, but special mention has to go to the underappreciated first game. The conversations you share with every target as they lie bleeding to death are nothing short of captivating.

The way Altair's CharacterDevelopment comes from seeing these men defend their actions and realising that, even with a noble goal, men can commit acts of great evil, is far detached from the stigma the gaming industry has for being filled with ExcusePlots.

The way it is capable of making you [[CrowningMomentOfFunny [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfFunny laugh]], [[TearJerker cry]], and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming [[SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming d'awwww]] all at the same time. The way all the characters get to do something [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]], rather than there being just one hero and a bunch of sidekicks. The way the ridiculous number of {{Call Back}}s, {{Ironic Echo}}s, and {{Continuity Nod}}s all wrap together into an incredibly coherent work, making it fun both for casual readers and the more dedicated fans. Even just his writing style, which can run the gamut from over-the-top PurpleProse to the [[BeigeProse beigest]] of BuffySpeak and all the while sound just so distinctly ''Homestuck''. All of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. [[RunningGag All of it.]]



** The characters : Lizzie being a Stepfordnarker grumpy idealist with no brain-to-mouth filter and a tendancy to get too invested and caricature what happens gives the whole vlog an upbeat, effective style, but also creates some big WhatTheHellHero from other characters who want her to be more subtle. Charlotte's relative cynism, her determination and her ambition are really polarizing and create a wide range of reaction when she clashes with Lizzie. Jane is so cute, sweet and vulnerable on a modern and believable way that no claims of PuritySue could ever be laid on her. And Lydia is just as infuriatingly irresponsible as she is CrazyAwesome, vulnerable and hilarious, being a source of CrowningMomentOfFunny quickly followed by many TearJerker, CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
