When naming anything - a place, a weapon, a title, a society, anything - just add a prepositional phrase to get instant AWESOME! This is most commonly seen when being used to beef up the titles of movies and books. The most frequently used preposition for this is "of (put noun of choice here)", but "with" and "for" are also usable. Often times, when this is used, the thing being upgraded wouldn't be half as cool or interesting without their handy-dandy prepositional phrases.

A SuperTrope to:
[[index]]
* TheXOfY
* TheNounAndTheNoun
* CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase
* InWhichATropeIsDescribed
* RevengeOfTheSequel
* InSpace
[[/index]]

Tropes involving these phrases include:
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom
* GarnishingTheStory
* RuleOf
* ThePowerOf

Compare PrepositionsAreNotToEndSentencesWith. Can often be AGoodNameForARockBand, even if that trope name's not an example of one.

Most of these are likely to be introduced by translations, rather than being original to the Japanese versions, simply because there is almost always another possible word order the translation ''could'' use, but didn't.
* [[LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima The Familiar Of Zero]]
* There's a reason fans of {{Naruto}} tend to prefer the subtitles' name for the last battle between Naruto and Sasuke in Part One over the dub's name. Compare the Valley of the End to the Final Valley and make your own decision.
* LegendOfGalacticHeroes

[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* Jeft seems to think so in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'', according to the names he gave various places and people in his handmade world Damaeren: the Plains of Death, the [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Brothers of Doom]], the Forest of Screams, and so forth.
* The title of the ''[[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Total Drama]]'' story, ''Fanfic/CourtneyAndTheViolinOfDespair'' throws in TheXOfY for good measure and adds coolness by [[MacguffinTitle giving billing]] to the story's ArtifactOfDeath.
* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland''. Knowing that the story is a legend is all very well, but the coolness-adding prepositional phrase reveals what the legend pertains to.

* ''Series/LandOfTheLost''

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has been particularly fond of this when it comes to naming its episodes, particularly the "[Blank] of [Blank]" variety.

Used less in the new episodes, but pick any story arc from the classic show and there's a very good chance the title contains the word "of".

* ''LeaveItToBeaver''
* ''LostInSpace''
