Some tropes are used as a figure of speech, but they occasionally are used literally. For instance, Girl with Psycho Weapon normally refers to a crazy girl with a weapon, or at least a marginally sane girl with a weapon associated with crazy people, but Durarara!! has the case of Anri Sonahara, a sane girl whose weapon is psychotic.

This is a form of Playing with a Trope, no examples please.
