* UnfortunateImplications: [[Invoked]] The series presents an analysis of how many tropes about women play into double standards and unfortunate implications, promoting sexist values without conscious intent but effective methods. Anita Sarkeesian commonly shares a very brief and abstract analysis of an aggregate of works, selecting a few works to reference by name and pointing out how the work makes their unfortunate implications.

* ButNotTooEvil: Anita doesn't care much whether it's the good guys or the bad guys who are being sexist. And she especially doesn't care if DeliberateValuesDissonance is in effect, such as with ''Series/MadMen''

* MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication: {{Discussed}} in her videos about ''Film/TrueGrit'' and ''Series/VeronicaMars''. Anita appears to believe that women using violence makes a work not feminist, just by definition.

* ''Film/SuckerPunch'': Viciously derides it as a "steaming pile of sexist crap" (and takes the time to call [[ZackSnyder its director]] an idiot).

** The ninth video is about the concept of "Women as Reward," with a focus on several {{Troperiffic}} examples of {{Fanservice}}. These include cinematics with StandardHeroReward, SmoochOfVictory, and RescueSex; EasterEggs that result in topless or otherwise sexual scenes, characters, or events; unlockable [[VirtualPaperDoll costumes]] which overlap with {{Fetish}} and ChainmailBikini; moments where sex or sexualized interaction rewards players with ExperiencePoints or an increase to LifeMeter or SprintMeter; [[CollectionSidequest Collection Sidequests]] involving {{Fanservice}}; and [[AchievementSystem achievements]] for sex, having sex with multiple women, ogling female characters, or sexual interactions with nonconsenting female characters. Sarkeesian discusses the way these tropes reinforce a feeling of entitlement to women's sexuality, as with the behavior of cat callers.

[[folder:Tropes {{invoked}} during the series]]
* AccentuateTheNegative: Largely focuses on what she finds sexist in the media.
* ActionGirl: She tends to be highly critical of these kinds of characters, seeing them as ''not'' empowering, but, more often than not, capitulations to toxic masculinity and its exhortation of violence over communication.
* ActualPacifist: She has shown to have a strong dislike of violent media in all forms, and has praised games like ''VideoGame/GoneHome'' and ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' for not relying on it to tell their stories. She has dissented from other feminist commentaries and criticized ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' for connecting its supposed empowerment of women with ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer.
* AndThatsTerrible: She argues that Hollywood "should feel really guilty right now" about using the MysticalPregnancy trope.
* ButNotTooEvil: Anita doesn't care much whether it's the good guys or the bad guys who are being sexist.
* EpilepticFlashingLights: "Women As Background Decoration Part 1" shows the ''VideoGame/DukeNukem3D'' strip club scene and the attract mode from ''Rave Racer'', both which uses a hefty amount of strobe lighting.
* IconicOutfit: Nearly all fan and parody art will show her wearing a pink plaid shirt, hoop earrings, and a ponytail. At her panel for Geek Girl Con 2015, she explained that the regularity of her outfit is more based on what looks good in video production than any personal attachment to the look.
* MenUseViolenceWomenUseCommunication: {{Discussed}} in her videos about ''Film/TrueGrit'' and ''Series/VeronicaMars''.
* NotSoDifferent: Many of her supporters point out that the tropes she criticizes in video games are also complaints levied by gamers.
%%* SarcasmMode: In the latter part of the Tropes Vs. Women videos.
* UnfortunateImplications: [[Invoked]] The series presents an analysis of how many tropes about women play into double standards and unfortunate implications, promoting sexist values without conscious intent but effective methods.

* TimeTravel: From the transcript of [[https://feministfrequency.com/video/are-women-too-hard-to-animate-female-combatants/#4352095347005571138 Are Women Too Hard To Animate? Female Combatants]]:
--> To participate in the worlds games create, we happily accept '''time travel''', superpowers, ancient alien civilizations, the ability to carry infinite items, the idea that eating a hot dog can instantly heal your wounds, and a million other fictions. Itís certainly not too much to ask that these fictional worlds give us believable female combatants too.
