Sister Page Images

Sets of tropes for which there are connections between their page images.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Do We Have This One?? Oh, and I'm open to title suggestions.

This is an index relating to sets of tropes whose page images are connected, in that how one image shows one trope ties into how the other image shows the other trope.

    Why is this not getting replies? (EDIT: Apart from my own, of course.)

    There may not be very many examples. That said...

    I doubt that this is tropeable; the page image is not an essential part of the trope, and is subject to change at the whim of the editing community. Also, this does not add much of anything other than an incomplete index of tropes which may or may not be related; such relations, if they are important, should be listed on the trope's page under "see also" or "compare with" or somesuch.

    "Compare with" would not apply to page images, though.

    Also, that the images could be changed simply means the index would be changed with it. I'd be willing to maintain said index if need be.

    I think this might be meta-tropeable unless it's just Too Rare To Trope. We have the requisite 3 examples, but a stub page like that is doomed to languish.

    Since images are subject to change, this would not work.

    ^This has already been pointed out and Neo volunteered to curate the page to mitigate any problems. Just sayin.

    ^ Thanks.

    Also, I would have sworn there were more than just these 3 examples, I just do not know what the others are at this point.

    Unless they've been changed, the images on The Hero, The Lancer, The Smart Guy, The Big Guy and The Chick are all the Star Wars examples of those tropes.

    Sister Images? Or for clarity at the expense of aesthetics, Sister Page Images?

    ... snowcloned from Sister Tropes, I know, but something just seems so awkward about the sibling analogy I am not sure if I feel fond of carrying it further.

    That said, I will tentatively switch to the latter for now.

    Thanks, mentioned, though I would like input on whether or not I worded the mention right @ Prfnoff

    Come to think of it, I decided to scrap it until how they are an example is described more specifically.

    I'm not sure if this counts, but Supporting Harem, and Balanced Harem are Sister Tropes, they both feature a Harem Cast on a white background, and it's the girls' position on the pictures, that is supposed to comunicate the point in both cases.

    Warm Up Boss and Wake Up Call Boss used to be the respective examples from Sonic The Hedgehog 2, but both images have since been taken down.

    Excuse Plot and Bad Dudes both used the same image until someone changed it. It was better with the old image; that made it fun and a little funny.

    The various Standard Video Game Levels tropes (Slippery Slidey Ice World and Level Ate are some, can't remember all of them) all use a collage of several different videogames, many from the same games.

    Slippery Slidey Ice World and Standard Video Game Levels are redlinked. Without a counterpart to Level Ate, I'm hesitant to present it as an example.

    I second Dragon Quest Z. The suddenly-changing-page-images-syndrome makes the article pretty much a no-go. Keeping up with the changes would be impossible.

    ^ Titles can also get changed, and we still have many indexes about trope title formats.
  • June 26, 2011
    MetaFour
    But titles get changed less often than page images do, because changing a title is a lot more work.
  • July 3, 2011

    Still though, when a page image is changed, its entry on this index can be changed to reflect that.

    Tom Hanks Syndrome and its reverse Leslie Nielsen Syndrome use the same template.

    Also, any suggestions on how to structure the explanations for the examples? Should I use just the asterisk-indenting structure like I do now, or should I use quote indentation to make the explanations' text smaller than the examples' text?
