''Tropes and trope categories about setting up, fleshing out, and tearing down characters''.
%% This list is NOT intended to be exhaustive; such a list of character-related tropes would include about a third of this entire wiki. Please do not add a character trope to this page if it would fit better in one of the sub-categories. Thank you.

Compare {{Characters}} and CharactersAndCasting (how characters are affected by being played by actors).\\
Contrast CharactersAsDevice (roles that characters can be shoved into for plot reasons).
