This is an index of Audience Reactions. An Audience Reaction is objectively ''not present'' in the work at all. It's something fans emotionally go through from experiencing the work.

AudienceReactions are opinions, [[Administrivia/NotATrope not tropes]]. Some of them may be very prevalent opinions, or may have inspired an author to play or avert a trope or may even be what a work is most known for, or be on the contrary completely unknown or privy to a selected few. We put a name on them and categorize them because they're a point of interest to both fans and writers, but they should not be confused with tropes. They are highly subjective, argument-causing and aren't a building block of storytelling the way tropes are. For this reason we have [[Administrivia/WhatGoesWhereOnTheWiki restrictions for when and where they can be listed or potholed]].

An AudienceReaction can't be [[PlayingWithATrope played with]] ([[{{Trope}} Played Straight]], {{Exaggerated}}, {{Justified| Trope}}, {{Subverted}}...)--because it never "gets played" intentionally to begin with--but for three exceptions:

# When the authors are ''[[IntendedAudienceReaction trying]]'' for the reaction in question.
# When the work is self-aware enough to {{lampshade|Hanging}} the audience's probable reaction.
# ''InUniverse'' usage of an AudienceReaction (Meaning, a ''character'' has this reaction to a ShowWithinAShow or something to that extent).

If an audience reaction occurs or is discussed in-universe, it's acceptable to list the reaction in question on a work's main trope page. Otherwise, please place it on the [[YMMV/HomePage YMMV subpage]].

Compare CharacterReactionIndex. Contrast with ApathyIndex.
