* SelfDemonstratingArticle: Pages for characters with a strong personality trait or VerbalTic tend to be written in that style. So Wheelie's page RhymesOnADime, while ''Animated'' Ramjet's is full of BlatantLies. The page for "[[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Void Void]]" is an [[SurpriseCreepy admittedly]] [[NightmareFuel creepy]] example.

* WikiMagic: Probably one of the more triumphant examples. Started out as a sad, dismal little Website/{{Wikia}} wiki until [[Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}} David Willis]] came across it and pressganged a bunch of fellow fans into working on it. It's now one of the most comprehensive and meticulously maintained fan wikis out there on the Net, to the point where even some of the various official creators have been known to use it as a reference.

[=TFWiki=].net is the [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Transformer franchise's]] most prominent [[TheWikiRule fan wiki]]. Unlike most wikis, its style is rather informal and chock full of LampshadeHanging, {{Running Gag}}s, {{Mythology Gag}}s, {{Shout Out}}s, and MemeticMutation. (Though it's also still very meticulously referenced and informational.) This of course leads to great synergy with ThisVeryWiki, being the source of [[SpellMyNameWithAnS page quotes]], or even [[DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER trope]] [[TropeNamers names]], and lending itself to [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Dull_surprise#External_links cross promotion]]. Many actual Transformers staff members (mostly {{Promoted Fanboy}}s) contribute, including Jim Sorenson, [[Franchise/TransformersTimelines Greg Sepelak]], and [[Webcomic/{{Walkyverse}} David Willis]].

Can be found [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Main_Page here]].

** Sentinel Prime's IDW comics eventually all became quotes of Richard Nixon's Head from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.

* SpinOff: The [[http://idwhasbro.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page IDW Hasbro Wiki]], recently set up to handle all the non-TF titles (''G.I. Joe'', ''ROM, ''Micronauts'', etc.) that were fused into the IDW continuity to start the Franchise/HasbroComicUniverse. It's a bit slow-going right now, however.

** Several times on Optimus Prime's IDW continuity page, or at least the segment about his time as Orion Pax, quotes are used from Film/HotFuzz (on account of his past as Orion Pax, Supercop).
** The Main/{{Tomboy}} character Hank from [[WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise the 2015 version of ''Robots in Disguise'']] wants to [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill sell propane and propane accessories]] when she grows up.

** One of Blurr's captions on his [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Blurr_(G1) G1 continuity page]] reads "I'm faster than Tom Kennedy on ''Series/SplitSecond''!"

Added DiffLines:

** On occasion, the wiki gets snarky about the CaptainObvious nature of some captions. Like, for example, on the top image for the G1 Cartoon Hot Rod.
-->'''Caption:''' (''On a picture showing Hot Rod and Daniel Witwicky running through a field'') Without a dry, informative caption, we'd never know which of these is Hot Rod.


Added DiffLines:

** Attempted with the ''Unite Warriors Megatronia chapter'', twice, but both instances were soon ret-conned out.


Added DiffLines:

** Autobot Spike's captions (save one) are all about ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'', to go with the episode's Frankenstein references.
** Sentinel Prime's IDW comics eventually all became quotes of Richard Nixon's Head from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.
** Megatronia's page shows just how the wiki feels about the character by having the caption paraphrasing ''My Immortal''.

* CompensatingForSomething: Considered a DeadHorseTrope, and has an entry on the list of jokes and captions the wiki is sick of.


Added DiffLines:

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: The page [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Scale Scale]] exhaustively documents all the ways this trope is in effect in Transformers, and is found in the aforementioned "Things that don't exist" category.

** The opening paragraph of Monstructor's page is written in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, since the old Dreamwave More Than Meets The Eye profile books depicted him as a near-Lovecraftian horror.
