Trope Insperation

The inspiration for a trope

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Do We Have This Do We Need This

Sometimes a work becomes popular, and sometimes we want to name tropes after these popular works. In the old days that was perfectly acceptable, but nowadays this is not recommended. We want tropes to be acceptable to the masses so unless the work (or even just the specific phrase) transcends the random or the reference stands on its own, itís best to use more well generic names.

So your clever trope name was shot down, but the work was still a big inspiration for your trope.
