    This is a World of Search Generated Index, which isn't allowed.

    The description outright states that this is about tropes where almost all characters have a certain trait. It just happens that "world of" is the standard snowclone form.

    Exactly. It just so happens that all the examples I came up with start with 'World' and usually proceed to 'of' from there. If there are others that are not of this form, they would go here as well.

    Planet Eris, for instance.

    (...and I don't know why it's identified me as a random Unknown Troper. - Noa)

    Single Biome Planet is another trope that would fit here.

    Would Everyone Is Bi count?

    Everyone Is Bi would count. I'm not sure about Single Biome Planet, though... generally there are multiple planets in the setting that each have a different climate...

    Not unless the planet in question represents the entire setting.

    ...I could have sworn that was already there.

    Setting Of Hats, to make it look less like a Search Generated Index and clarify the difference from Planet Of Hats?
  • February 25, 2012
    Noaqiyeum
    I could support that.

    Isn't this a People Sit On Chairs? I mean, doesn't every setting, in being a setting, do this? Sure, some do it to a further degree than others, but even real places can be defined by certain things, and easily depicted through a few elements.

    I don't understand what you mean.

    ^^^^ No, every setting does not have a gimmick. And this is about setting gimmicks, not settings. ---

    BTW, how about Setting Gimmicks for the title? Because Hat is pretty opaque to those who aren't aware of what Planet Of Hats means.

    Makes sense.

    ...bump?

    Bump.

    I'm pretty sure this is just waiting for hats to be launched. Maybe a better description?

    It could do with a better description. Maybe a little bit on how using one of these tropes influences the work as a whole?

    This actually looks to me more like a Supertrope for certain types of setting ('World Of....'). Which doesn't sounds, bad, actually (do we have this one already?)
  • February 16, 2013
    Noaqiyeum
    Yeah, I actually had this in mind as an index or supertrope.

    I agree that the description could be fleshed out a bit more, though, but I'm not sure exactly what to say about it.
