Let's look at it this way. First off, the TV Tropes Wiki is designed to be a tool for good writing (Or alternatively to waste valuable working hours). [=GLaDOS=] is a moderately well-written character at the very least. In addition, the Wiki has a dark/snarky sense of humor. This is found in the form of TVTropesWillRuinYourLife, amongst other things. [=GLaDOS=] is a DeadpanSnarker with a good sense of humor. The Wiki likes music, and to be more precise, nerdly music, namely, TheyMightBeGiants. [=GLaDOS=] is an obvious fan of Jonathan Coulton (a folk/rock musician who often writes about nerdly themes), as she let him write her theme song. [=GLaDOS=] can apparently love, as is shown by the "Broke my heart and killed me" line of "Still Alive". The TV Tropes server can hate, and does so quite liberally. At a bare minimum, these two AIs are related. However, there is one disturbing result of this:

[[WMG: ItJustBugsMe was deliberately created by the [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Wiki Gods]] in an attempt to isolate the dangerous strains of Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike which threatened to destroy TV Tropes entirely.]]

[[WMG: ItJustBugsMe It Just Bugs Me was deliberately created by the [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Wiki Gods]] in an attempt to isolate the dangerous strains of Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike which threatened to destroy TV Tropes entirely.]]



It started as an ordinary wiki, [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly but as more and more people poured their time and energy into it, it attained godhood.]] It has since been gathering power by attracting new followers and gathering information so that it could create the perfect world for the tropers. ItJustBugsMe was created in an attempt to prevent plot holes in this tropers' heaven and WildMassGuessing is used for it to get new ideas from the tropers themselves. TroperTales and the SugarWiki are yet another facet of information gathering, the former for gathering information about the tropers' lives and the latter about their likes. FanFicRecommendations exists to allow it to examine the tropes in action rather than just as listed examples. The DarthWiki is an attempt by TV Tropes Wiki to purge itself of evil and negative energy, allowing it to become a being of pure goodness. Then it will only be a matter of gathering up that last little bit of energy to rapture all tropers through their computer screens. The Great Crash was caused by the last attempt at such a rapture which failed spectacularly because TV Tropes Wiki wasn't completely ready yet.

* Another variation of the Trope Virus is one that infects bugs. ''Arthropodus Tropeis'' are a brand new species of insects that were infected with the "codename: ItJustBugsMe" genetic code. ''A. Tropeis'' latches itself onto a hapless person, causing the person to be irritated, but somehow, ''A. Tropeis'' alters the person's perception, causing him to notice even the slightest mistake, and make twisted logic on it. This is called by experts as "Fridge Logic".

* In our Extended Timeline (TM), it seems that the existence of JustBugsMe has eventually led to the relative nonexistence of FridgeLogic.

Someone from the future lives in this dark future and went back to create ThisVeryWiki as a training ground, so when the time comes, we can ban together and use all of our GenreSavvy knowledge to defend our world.

[[EvilPlan My plan?]] I have a big ego. So big, I would absorb it instead of it absorbing me. I'm going to read all the pages in ThisVeryWiki, and absorb that creature. Thus I'll rule over TV Tropes. If TV Tropes is going to TakeOverTheWorld, ''I'' will be in control. [[AGodAmI All of you will serve me. I can control the world. If I want somebody dead, s/he dies. If I don't, s/he is immortal.]] [[KneelBeforeZod Kneel before me,]] [[NietzscheWannabe worthless mortals.]]

If that's not enough to convince you, TropeCo deals in tropes, and there is currently no trope describing a benevolent company.

Tropers are using the Xanatos terms in real life despite not knowing who Xanatos is. [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Goliath and crew]] may eventually be forgotten from the public mind, but once Wiki/TVTropes becomes popular enough [[TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary for its terms to be a part of everyday vocabulary]], the Xanatos name will still live on.
