* ''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. 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.

* 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.

** The fourteenth video focuses "Female Combatants" and the question "[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity Are Women Too Hard to Animate?]]" Sarkeesian discusses how violence against some female combatants is gendered, while other violence is not, and the reluctance on the part of developers to include women fighters in games.

Added DiffLines:

** The sixteenth video discusses the "Sinister Seductress," which comprises several tropes regarding female sexuality: FanDisservice and BodyHorror on the one hand; TheVamp and HornyDevils on the other; and the [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs crossover between the two]]. Sarkeesian discusses the UnfortunateImplications of [[EvilIsSexy depicting female sexuality as "evil"]].

Added DiffLines:

** The fifteenth video discusses two tropes that are implications of MenAreStrongWomenArePretty: OnlyOneFemaleMold and MenGetOldWomenGetReplaced. Sarkeesian discusses how male characters are allowed to have a variety of builds, body shapes and ages, while female characters are usually young and slim to fit the ideal beauty standard.

*** The second focuses on more modern games and the trope's combination with other tropes for a DarkerAndEdgier twist. Murdering the hero's wife and forcing him to rescue his daughter combines the DamselInDistress with StuffedIntoTheFridge. Some combine the two (called by Sarkeesian, "Damsel In The Fridge") by getting the hero to rescue the murdered wife's soul (usually from hell), and some have the twist of getting the hero to [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption murder her himself]] at the end of the game to rescue her from mutilation or just to get at the villain, sometimes with her begging to be freed (combining it with MercyKill, called by Sarkeesian "Euthanized Damsel"). She then places the games' violence against women in the context of reality, focusing on the fact that the final combination rationalizes violence against a woman for her own good and the fact that this is a rationalization often used in abusive relationships.
