Being first in an aspect is awesome!
Did you know that this is the first trope to talk about the importance of bring first? And it's the first time we've mentioned this fact on this page! Isn't it amazing? If you're the first one who see this, so are you! Just like being the best is, well, the best, being the first one to do something is the first (in awesomeness). In real life, people put great stock in being the first X, or the first to do Y, or the first to do the first X, etc... This really only applies to accomplishments that can be repeated. Saying you were the first person to kill the Big Bad is pretty much equivalent to saying you killed the Big Bad, unless, of course, Death Is Cheap. Super Trope of First Post. See also Second Place Is for Losers and First Installment Wins. Can overlap with Overly Narrow Superlative, if what they're first in is an extremely specific category. Please include in-universe examples only - to list all the Real Life examples would take most of the internet.
