TropeOverdosed is when a series uses many tropes. The inverse, when a trope applies to many different series, is an Overdosed Trope. If you want a real challenge, look for an article that doesn't use a single one of these tropes.

Many of these tropes are popular because they are used as a verbal shorthand ({{Squick}}, OhCrap, etc.), and others are popular because they're more ways of discussing works than they are part of the work themselves (NightmareFuel, moments of awesome and funny). In any event, the only requirement to be included on this page is that a trope is referenced by at least 2,500 other pages, as listed in the "related" page.

The numbers given here are for rough estimation purposes only, since the pages will inevitably have changed since the trope was added or updated.

See Also: OmnipresentTropes, JustForFun/TropesOfLegend, TropeOverdosed. For tropes that attract a lot of {{pothole}}s, see PotholeMagnet.
