Trope-tan is the [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Anthropomorphic]] [[MoeAnthropomorphism Moe Personification]] of the wiki, drawn by VigilanteTaxonomist Tropers/{{Fawriel}} in response to ThatOtherWiki's [[http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Works_by_Kasuga Wikipe-tan]][[note]]And, for that matter, [[http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Uncyclo-Tan Uncyclo-tan]] And [[http://encyclopediadramatica.se/Ae-tan -tan]]..[[/note]]
Physical qualities:
* Carries a [[{{BFS}} BFQ]], a Big Frickin' [[ImprobableWeaponUser Quill]], and can use it to [[RewritingReality Rewrite Reality]].
* Displays the [[AATAFOVS/EpisodeGuide AATAFOVS]] logo proudly.
* On the belt...
** An IdiotBall, for stupefying opponents. But carrying it means she [[ForgotICouldFly often forgets what it's there for]]. When not holding the ball, she is a [[GuileHero devastating]] [[TheChessmaster chess master]].
** An icon of TropeyTheWonderDog, her beloved pet.
** [[TheGunslinger A gun]]. A [[ChekhovsGun Russian]] [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolver]], to be specific.[[note]]A [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagant_M1895 Nagant M1895]] to be ''[[GunPorn very]]'' [[ShownTheirWork specific]]. One of the few revolvers capable of being [[HollywoodSilencer silenced]].[[/note]]
** She can also use ChekhovsGun, if it's been introduced in a small role earlier.
*** She alternates between ImprobableAimingSkills and MoreDakka.
*** [[BottomlessMagazines She never runs out of rounds.]]
** A [[TheKidWithTheRemoteControl television remote control.]]
** A [[VideoGames video game system]], specifically a GameBoyAdvance.
** Sometimes seen with a WeirdnessMagnet used to locate and attract strange situations.
** [[TooManyBelts More belts.]] Which also happen to be {{Wick}}s.
** She can also [[MacGyvering combine these]] with [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot practically anything]] for [[ExponentialPotential near-infinite results]].
* Has [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue hair]] and [[MarkOfTheSupernatural heterochromia]] (an obvious allusion to her sailor ways). Her [[OrangeBlueContrast blue hair and orange top]] form the TVTropes colour scheme.
* Sports a {{Cute Little Fang|s}}. Sometimes gives her FangThpeak.
* Has YouthfulFreckles too, quite fittingly.
* [[RummageSaleReject Buys her clothes at a rummage sale.]]
* May also sport a [[NiceHat nice]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] [[LampshadeWearing hat]].
* Her [[GogglesDoNothing goggles used to do nothing]], but have [[RetCon since been upgraded]] to [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual see through time]]. (They also keep people from [[VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}} plucking her]] [[EyeScream eyes out]]. [[CrazyPrepared You never know]], after all.)
* The [[OdangoHair hairstyle]] is [[FauxSymbolism symbolical]] of the eternal Administrivia/LumperVsSplitter wars.
* As drawn, her shirt [[BareYourMidriff reveals her navel]]. She may, at her leisure, [[ContemplateOurNavels contemplate it.]]
* Wears [[BringMyBrownPants brown pants]], but [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial swears it's because they were the cheapest thing on the rack]]. [[LovableCoward Riiiight.]]
** Not to mention that her pockets are BiggerOnTheInside and can hold infinite {{Hammerspace}}.
* Has really NiceShoes. They function as her "[[TrickedOutShoes other utility]]" that allows her to [[GrindBoots grind exceptionally well]], [[SuperSpeed run at mach 1000]], make long distance [[ShoePhone phone calls]], are [[SmolderingShoes completely flame retardant]], but mainly [[ShoeSlap used for slapping her enemies with]]. Oh [[SwissArmyWeapon and they allow her to fly]].
* Engaged in her life's work, [[LampshadeHanging pointing things out]].
* Is a UsefulNotes/{{Pettanko}}, but suffers from ACupAngst because she's been led to think BuxomIsBetter.
* Is [[SoCoolItsAwesome So Cool She's Awesome]].
** As a meta example, [[CurtainsMatchTheWindow her color scheme was also the inspiration for the logo]][[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/SoCoolItsAwesome_5604.jpg]].
* She is [[IAmNotLeftHanded Ambidextrous]].
* She may be [[BiTheWay Bisexual]], or [[NoBisexuals not]].
* Is a CuteWitch, but make no mistake, she's a CuteBruiser as well, and all-around LittleMissBadass.
* [[DeadpanSnarker She may seem sarcastic at times]], [[HiddenDepths but if you get to know her]], you'll find she is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

Other details:
* Also, [[WillTheyOrWontThey may or may not]] have a SlapSlapKiss romance with that [[AffablyEvil devilish yet sincere]] fellow known as [[TelevisionWithoutPity Tubeelzebub]]...
* We think @/TheAdvertisementServer doesn't like her, or at the very least, thinks [[UnnecessaryMakeover she needs to clean her teeth, go to a tanning salon, change her hair and/or use some wrinkle cream]]. He has also called her a Virgin (Records), which she denies. In fairness, it would [[VirginPower explain the source of all her power.]]
** However, right now he is asking her to [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/police_trope_tan_6760.jpg wear a sexy police outfit]]. The beginning of a [[BoyMeetsGirl love story]] between Trope-tan and @/TheAdvertisementServer, or is he simply inadvertently broadcasting his [[{{Fetish}} filthy]] [[{{Fanservice}} filthy]] [[CustomUniformOfSexy fantasies]]?
* Is not a [[BombThrowingAnarchist bomb-thrower]] despite the {{AATAFOVS}} badge, but [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority does show a disdain for authority]]. She believes that the [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking justification for all authority]] [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority is rooted in the use of force]]. Her preferred politics are oriented more towards [[EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity watery tarts]] [[ItMayHelpYouOnYourQuest dispensing]] [[AmuletOfConcentratedAwesome sacred relics]]. This naturally limits her choices in the voting booth, forcing her to TakeAThirdOption every time.
* Her [[TheMentor mentor]] was CrystalDragonJesus ([[TheObiWan until he made a]] HeroicSacrifice) and [[MentorOccupationalHazard died]]. He did GoOutWithASmile in an ObiWanMoment, however.
** He [[UnexplainedRecovery got better]], and went on to his own story arc.
* Recently discovered to have some sisters, SeparatedAtBirth. JustForFun/MysteriousWaifTan is one. JustForFun/BlackMagicianGirlTan is another.
** One of her sisters also seems to be the [[AnnoyingLaugh laughable]] JustForFun/CuteBruiserTan.
* Some people say that she's probably Sailor Trope, too. Everything's a sailor nowadays.
** [[TransformationTrinket They probably noticed a strange asterisk on her belt]]
** That's a remnant from her time as the Ego in a PowerTrio with Wikipe-tan (Superego) and Uncyclo-tan (Id). They see each other once in a while these days, mostly just for fun and memories.
** Her transformation [[ClothingDamage has her clothes melt away]], then Trope-tan is enveloped with film reels. An explosion of text reveals her costume.
* Has also been heard rehearsing [[BadassBoast a little speech]] as a PreAsskickingOneLiner.
-->''"Unforgiveable! Agent of [[BuffySpeak unnotability]] and WikiMagic, pretty RummageSaleReject in a LimitedWardrobe, Sailor Trope-tan! [[InTheNameOfTheMoon In the name of This Troper]], I will [[JustifyingEdit justifyingly edit]] you!"''
* [[TheConscience Her conscience]] has [[GoodAngelBadAngel two sides]]: [[DarthWiki Darth-tan]] and [[SugarWiki Sugarplum-tan]]. It's arguable that she has [[BlueAndOrangeMorality a third side]] but the rumor has yet to be confirmed. See below for details.
* She is [[TropesAreNotBad not bad]], but [[TropesAreNotGood not entirely good]] either. She may or may not have a SuperPoweredEvilSide named Gigatrope-tan, AKA TheWikiWitchOfTheWeb. Those who say she does have [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife lost their minds]] to [[TheTetrisEffect the Wiki Effect]] and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation can no longer think straight]].
* Is both OlderThanTheyThink and NewerThanTheyThink. Something about [[TimeyWimeyBall wibbily-wobbily, or somesuch.]]
* She also has a [[FridgeLogic fridge that's somehow]] [[RealityWarper able to warp reality itself,]] [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality not that it's a Bad Thing.]] [[FridgeBrilliance In fact, it's brilliant.]]
** [[FridgeHorror And really scary, once you think about it.]]
* She owns TropeyTheWonderDog, but not the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/natterhound.php Natterhound]], who is kept in an automated doghouse maintained by @/TheAdvertisementServer. In retrospect, [[KickTheDog perhaps that wasn't such a good idea]]...
* Her favorite dance is the {{Caramelldansen|Vid}}.
* She might possibly be a [[WMG/TimeLord Time Lady]] but she might not;[[FlipFlopOfGod the jury's still out on this one]].
* Does, in fact, [[OneOfUs edit TV Tropes itself]]. [[SugarWiki/TheOtherTroper *cough*]]
* Her specific BigBad is The Hivemind Behind DarthWiki. TheDragon's are all of the {{Data Vampire}}s, and {{troll}}s on the forums, also {{Wiki Vandal}}s.
* Can [[ActionGirl kick a lot of ass in a fight]], though [[FauxActionGirl loses just as often]]. This results in her getting [[BoundAndGagged tied up and gagged]], though not for long, because she can always [[ConvenientlyPlacedSharpThing find something to cut herself loose with]].
** Of course, [[ActuallyADoombot she keeps robot doubles around]] to take the heat sometimes. Also, [[MundaneUtility house]][[RobotMaid work]].
*** [[MegaManning When that fails, she just uses her enemies' powers against them.]]
* Has a GenderFlipped form known as, you guessed it, [[SpearCounterpart Trope-kun]].

!! ''MagicalGirl [[MoeAnthropomorphism Anthropomorphic]] Trope-tan'' by Tropers/{{Koveras}}

InAWorld where [[RealLife reality]] and fiction exist [[AlternateUniverse side by side]], OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Trope-tan [[FallingIntoTheCockpit falls into possession]] of a powerful [[ArtifactOfDoom artifact]] on her [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteenth birthday]]: a [[MagicWand magical staff]] named [[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability Tinstan]] that allows her to [[WikiMagic bring lost or obscure tropes back to life in full glory]]. Determined to [[MessianicArchetype do good]] [[WalkingTheEarth to the world]], she starts on a path of {{Wiki Magic}}ian, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/ykttw.php searching for]] and improving such tropes. Things get difficult when the DarkMagicalGirl Wikipe-tan (ElegantGothicLolita attire included) is sent by her [[EvilMatriarch evil mother]] Wiki[[ClassicalMythology medea]] to Trope-tan's world to search and destroy all in-universe [[ElementalPowers Elements of Fiction]], armed with such devastating spells as NPOV, Citation Needed, and Speedy Deletion ([[CallingYourAttacks called out]] in GratuitousEnglish). And it all gets ''really'' complicated when a CoolShip from TVTI shows up. [[HomePage TVTI]] is an interuniversal organization of "tropers" who strive to achieve [[BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil balance]] and integrity among the tropes before they [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife ruin all life in the multiverse]]. This balance is now [[ApocalypseHow about to crumble]] thanks to Trope-tan's indiscriminate resurrection, Wikipe-tan's indiscriminate deletion, and the epic EditWar between them. The tropers also have a secret agenda to [[SlashFic slash]] and [[{{Shipping}} ship]] [[FoeYay Trope-tan/Wikipe-tan]] in every manner possible, so [[UnresolvedSexualTension tensions]] between them are beginning to rise...

!! ''Trope-tan and the [[SpotlightStealingSquad Stealer of the Spotlight]]'' by Tropers/{{Peteman}}

ItWasADarkAndStormyNight. Trope-tan stood over the broken body of Firefox-Tan, [[CharacterDerailment cackling triumphantly over her victim]]. Wikipe-Tan stood there in [[DracoInLeatherPants her leather pants]], growling, [[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability "This is what happens where the is no notability!]] [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Editors run amok and there is nothing to stop them]]" But Trope-tan walked over, and [[StandardFemaleGrabArea grabbed her arm]], and all Wikipe-Tan could do was scream "[[BadassDecay LET ME GO! LET ME GO!!]]" as [[{{Chickification}} she broke down crying.]] Trope-tan threw her to the ground, then [[KickTheDog kicked her unconscious]] [[DownTheDrain down a manhole]] into the AbsurdlySpaciousSewer.

Firefox-Tan picked herself off the ground. She needed to stop Trope-tan, so she shouted "[[InTheNameOfTheMoon In the Name of Google, I will use my Search Engine powers to defeat you!"]] at which point, she summoned her [[TheyJustDidntCare frost powers]] to blast Trope-tan... She fired her giant ultimate unstoppable [[BeamSpam multi-blast frost beam attack]]... but Trope-tan [[TheWorfBarrage deflected it easily]]. Trope-tan skated toward Firefox-Tan, saying "[[EvilGloating Foolish girl! You could not hope to defeat me..."]]

That's when [[StevenUlyssesPerhero Ulysses Tristan Steven]] [[SdrawkcabName Ytram]] appeared out of nowhere, yelling "Have no fear citizen! [[MartyStu U.T.S. Ytram]] is here!"

Trope-tan was so mesmerized by U.T.S. Ytram's dramatic entrance and [[InformedAbility unbelievable charisma]] that she went out of control and [[DarthWiki/WallBanger slammed into a wall]]. She was even more mesmerized when the dashing young man, along with his giant sword, walked over to her, picked up her quill, and without trying, [[InstantExpert instantly began wielding it like a master.]]

Awed by his mastery and realizing that she stood no chance against this [[InformedAttractiveness unbelievably attractive man]], she swooned instantly and [[HeelFaceTurn became good]]. She approached the man but the clean and pleasant smelling girls Firefox-Tan and [[PlotHole Wikipe-Tan]] charged her. "He's mine! No! Mine!" came the exchange between them, but seconds later, they realized that his awesome magnificense and his giant... sword could be [[{{Polyamory}} shared between the three of them]]. They were about to [[IKEAErotica insert parts of him and each other into each other]]...

... When Trope-tan [[CatapultNightmare awoke bolting upright]] screaming [[BigNo "NOOOOOOOO!"]]

Gasping, she realized that whatever just happened, [[ItwasAllJustADream it wasn't real]]. She took a few calming breaths.

Meanwhile, [[StalkerWithACrush watching on his telescope]], Ulysses Tristan Steven Ytram smiled as the girl went back to sleep, "Soon my dear... very soon..."

!! ''Trope-tan and the StartOfDarkness'' by Tropers/{{Vifetoile}}

Trope-tan, with TropeyTheWonderDog faithfully at her side, put down her quill one evening and [[ContemplateOurNavels gazed up at the stars.]] "Ah, [[NamesTheSame Tropey]]," she said absently, "How did it come to this? One day I was an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, just trying to [[IJustWantToBeNormal live a normal life]], but then the Call came, and I JumpedAtTheCall. Who could blame me? NothingExcitingEverHappensHere - or so I thought. AsYouKnow, Wiki[[ClassicalMythology medea]] had ''chosen'' me to train in the arts of WikiMagic and seeing [[NoFourthWall past the Fourth Wall.]] She trained me alongside her own daughter, Wikipe-tan... she promised that one day I might find the significance of this [[OrphansPlotTrinket trinket that my parents left me]]..."

She fingered the ring on the chain around her neck for a minute, [[ExpoSpeak before resuming her story]].

"Wikipe-Tan and I [[RivalTurnedEvil were the best of friends, even if we were rivals...]] but when the time came to grant us the true status of [[DarkMagicalGirl Dark Magician Girls]], Wikimedea ''[[BrokenPedestal scorned]]'' me. She said that my [[Administrivia/ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability complete lack of notability]] and my [[LampshadeHanging irrepressible urge to hang lampshades]] meant I could never be a force to reckon with Wikipe-Tan in my wildest dreams. She said I had [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway too much heart!]]" Trope-tan grit her CuteLittleFangs together, her one ruby eye and one emerald eye glaring. "I thought Wikipe-Tan might at least stand up to her [[MyBelovedSmother mother]] - but [[AndManGrewProud she'd grown proud.]] She turned her back on me. And since that day," Trope-tan gripped the [[{{BFS}} Big Frickin' Quill]] again, "[[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou I am the only one allowed to defeat her!]]"

Trope-tan was startled by the sound of a clap. A slow clap, [[SarcasticClapping slow and sarcastic]]. She turned. A TallDarkAndSnarky fellow, who seemed another OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, was standing there, wearing a black shirt with the NBC peacock on it. "Incredible. Unbelievable. I don't think I've ever seen a [[ExpoSpeak less subtle insertion of plot exposition.]] Well done. I think my ears are ringing with the clanging of the metaphorical [[{{Anvilicious}} anvils]]."

"It was totally believable! I was talking to [[TheWatson my dog!]]"

"And where is that dog now?" He asked.

"She's..." Trope-tan looked around, but Tropey had left her feet. Instead Tropey was at the feet of the man, who was more roguishly handsome the more Trope-tan looked at him. Tropey kept [[LickedByTheDog licking the man on the hand affectionately.]]

"Believe this is yours." He PetTheDog curtly and sent her back to Trope-tan. He turned and walked away.

"But wait! Who are you?" Trope-tan called after him.

"I'll just be around whenever your ego needs a deflation. [[TelevisionWithoutPity Spare the snark, spoil the MoeMoe]]..." He disappeared into the shadows, leaving Trope-tan and Tropey alone in the night, which was promising to be [[ItWasADarkAndStormyNight dark and stormy.]]

!! ''Origins of Darth-tan'' by Tropers/IceWolfklaske

It was at the end of a minor, but vicious flame war. The forces of light and law had emerged victorious, and what little trolls had survived were weary, wounded or altered beyond their previous forms, no longer recognizable as troll. Amidst this chaos and destruction a lone child arose. Wounded deeply by the violence, both physically and mentally, she looked saw upon her fallen kin and realized.
And a terrible realisation it was. But unlike those of her kin who came upon this knowledge more gradually, and in kinder circumstances, she did not join the legions of order.

Her heart was hardened by the bitterness of the rivalry, and she decided, with all her skill and potential, to remain on the side she had been born into, but with this realization within her.
This knowledge, that she cultivated and sharpened as one would a wicked living blade, which aided her in her quest against her adversaries. The wounds closed, the scars mostly faded, but her health remained weak, suspicible to fevers, her one leg and arm nearly so weak as to be useless.

This did not stop her. As the heat of fevers burned in her body, in her soul burned an icy cold more strongly, with determination and a resolve that did not waver. And she became the most dangerous of many. Her name was not known, and she rarely spoke. But her strength, ah, her deceptive and terrible strength within that frail body. She became a much sought after warrior, until at last, she found her place, her resolve ever burning.

And she has been very, very useful to us.

In the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} grim]] [[GrimDark dark]] [[BadFuture future]]... there is a woman. This woman [[GenreSavvy knows how the universe works]]. Clad in hardened steel and salvaged armor, for these are the signs of her time, she strides out to defend the last bastions of Humanity and the great Imperium. Locked behind her [[LampshadeWearing lampshade helmet]], it is said she fears no foe, and needs not see them, for she knows the very heart of [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] and [[FlatEarthAtheist Tau]], [[BloodKnight Ork]] and [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyrannid]], [[ImplacableMan Necron]] and [[TheCorruption Chaos]] - even [[HumansAreBastards Man]] himself. You shall know her by her signs: the [[AvatarAndTheAirbendingFellowshipOfVampireSlayers sigil]] of her creed, the [[ChainsawGood chain]]-[[RuleOfCool quill]], the blue and orange livery of her Ordo Tropus. Pray to the Emperor that she come in your time of need, for her knowledge [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy turns the tide of battles]], and without it you will be forced to [[GenreBlindness stumble blindly in the dark]]. None know the source of this woman, or her knowledge, or her order - except the mysterious one herself.

Stress Expolsion!: HeroicBSOD\\
Special Qualities: Overactive immagination, Otaku (pop-culture/fiction)\\
Maid Weapons: [[ImprobableWeaponUser Giant Quill]]\\
Appearance and Personality: Her maid uniform is... interesting to say the least. The pieces look like the kind of things you would [[RummageSaleReject find at a garage sale]], [[MacGyvering somehow arranged to give the appearance of a maid uniform]]. She is very [[GenreSavvy knowlegeable about pop culture and tropes in fiction]], and often [[LampshadeHanging remarks on tropes that occur in her daily life]]. However, others tend to mistake this for her imagination getting the better of her.\\
\\
Notes (Items, etc...):\\
Her uniform is nonstandard. This is how it breaks down with regards to the Removal/Disrobing rules.
* Headdress: [[GogglesDoNothing Goggles]]
* Apron: [[TooManyBelts Belts]]
* Blouse: [[BareYourMidriff Midriff]] (not attatched to skirt). Lots of [[PimpedOutDress detail work]] around the bust and sleeves.
* Skirt: Brown button-up overskirt with orange [[PimpedOutDress underskirts and frills]]. Looks to have [[ClothingDamage already taken damage]] in the past...
* Underwear: Cute orange and blue boyshorts with matching sportsbra.
* Stockings: Long orange white and blue striped socks.

Notes: Trope-tan would be fun to play as. She would be a starting [=PL8=] if she lost the shapeshifting, but I can't bring myself to take away her powers as the plot demands. I guess you could represent that with the not!Ritualist feat if you had to.

Kawaii, Rousing Speech, Slap Silly and Zen Strike are from Mecha & Manga. Trope-tan is very much a team player.

The quill is kind of boring as it stands, but hey. Oh, and if you're wondering why she doesn't have any combat style feats it's because she just does {{Flynning}}.

[[folder:Trope-tan in ''Super Smash Bros'']]
Description:
Trope-tan is the crazy, unpredictable spokesmodel for TVTropes. She is the Agent of [[BuffySpeak unnotability]] and WikiMagic, a pretty RummageSaleReject in a LimitedWardrobe, and will [[JustifyingEdit justifyingly edit]] her enemies.

Attacks:

A-Attack: She does a three hit combo with her quill. The third hit can become a spam attack instead of a single hit sometimes.

A-Left/Right Attack: A wicked downward slash with her quill.

A-Up Attack: She slashes upwards with her quill.

A-Down Attack: She does a little break-dance.

B-Attack: She fires her Russian Revolver. Either [[ImprobableAimingSkills instantly hits someone regardless of where they are]] or if held down, [[MoreDakka rapidly fires infront of her]]

B-Left/Right Attack: Remote Waves. She takes her remote and fires an electronic blast.

B-Down Attack: She invokes the power of the IdiotBall as a magic shield. Any projectiles will get reflected, and players standing too close for too long can have a variety of effects done to them.

B-Up Attack: She twirls upwards, with her shield above her head.

Mid-Air Attack: She twirls around.

Mid-Air A: Flips around in midair.

Taunts:

One: She does a pose. It is the same one from the top of this page.

Two: She shows her feather and says "Unforgiveable!"

Three: She crosses her arms and says "What do you mean, it's not lampshading?"

Final Smash: Edit Reality\\
Trope-tan glows and screams "In the name of this troper, I will justifyingly edit you!". Then she jumps upwards off the screen and causes random trope names start appearing, flying across the screen, hurting anyone they come in contact with. Finally, Trope-tan arrives back on-screen.

[[folder:Trope-tan in Web Originals]]
* She appeared as an NPC in Season One of ''Roleplay/TheMassiveMultiFandomRPG''. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, [[MemeticMutation Anonymous]] did some [[CompleteMonster pretty]] [[KickTheDog terrible]] [[EyeScream things]] to her.[[RedHerring Thankfully, it wasn't the real Trope-tan.]] Another version of her appears in TheStinger to rescue a character from AFateWorseThanDeath.]]
** She, and several more of her, play a vital role in Season 2. [[spoiler: The 666th alternate version of her ran amok.]] When the actions of Ol' Sixes create a 'secure testing environment' that various heroes and villains from all over fiction are trapped inside, Trope-tan, her 'sisters' from alternate worlds, and even the forces of Anonymous unite to try and break them out. [[spoiler: Eventually, Sixes steals the power of the Troper and becomes TheWikiWitchOfTheWeb. Unlucky for her, that power spirals out of control, and she ends up unable to control herself as she fights the prisoners as [[OneWingedAngel Gigatrope-tan.]] Finally, she is beaten down to a shadow of her old self, and taken into custody by her sisters, where she seems on the road to recovery, both mentally and physically.]]
* The Trope-tans are also [[ShoutOut mentioned offhandedly]] by Moja at the beginning of ''Roleplay/AGameOfGods: Taskforce Sifuri'' as a candidate for a multiversal treasure hunt.
