''Sometimes we make punny trope names, just for pun. Some people like this, while others view it as cruel and punusual punishment.''

Compare {{Tropemanteau}}.

''Please, when you add a new article title here, '''add the source of the pun''' (i.e. the original title or quote or whatever) in a note behind it. Many puns here are just too obscure for most of us.''

And no, [[DontExplainTheJoke you are not supposed to explain your own puns like this page does]].

If you came here looking for an index of pun-related tropes, rather than tropes whose names are puns, that's {{Pun}}.
