[[SelfDemonstratingArticle This is the one true index!]] All other indexes are heretics!\\
\\
We are not fanatics, oh no, we are simply righteous!\\
\\
Sadly, this index also contains a lot of heresy, and heresy of the worst kind: The fanatics, those who believe their lies just as strongly as we believe in the truth. And since they are the majority here, we grudgingly accept the title "index of fanatics". Also, our hands are tied: We cannot say which one of the tropes listed below is the one and only true path that expose all the others as lies. Why? Because that's the only way we could all agree on this text, that's why!

* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: What makes a better world? Making people suffer for their own good.
* VanInBlack: We're watching criminals and dissenters from a distance.
* UsefulNotes/VictimBlaming: If horrible things happen to you, just understand that you must have done something to rightfully deserve it. With that, you get NoSympathy from us!
* WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency: We don't kill, steal, rape, or do drugs. Reward us ''now!''
* WetBlanketWife: We don't care ''what'' awesome feat or heroic battle our LoveInterest needs to do! They need to think about the consequences of their actions and how it makes ''us'' feel!
* WhenIWasYourAge: We are disgusted with the modern generation for having it easy with things such as technology, recreational activities, and their ways of living their lives! Why can't they understand and appreciate the standards we uphold and the hardships we've endured back then?! We liked them better that way!
* WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou: It's your own fault for making us abuse you!
* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: Killing millions of people is purely good! After all, they are all wicked and deserve to die!
* WillNotTellALie: Ever. [[PrinciplesZealot No matter who gets hurt.]]
* WitchHunt: If you are in the minority, especially regarding religion, we will hunt you down!
* WithUsOrAgainstUs: The "middle side" is the same as the evil side. Therefore, if you are not for us, then you are evil!
* YouAreWhatYouHate: ''Many'' of us are exactly what we wish to not exist, whether in being the mirror image of our political opponents, our own race or sexuality not being "perfect" according to our rules, or similar. See {{Hypocri|te}}sy above.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters: It doesn't matter how many bad things the freedom fighters have done, because they are fighting for freedom. Likewise, it doesn't matter the cause of the terrorists, because they are causing terror.

[[folder:'''Kinds/Flavors of Works''' We Are Extra Likely to Write or Appear In]]
* AndThatsTerrible: We can't rely on ShowDontTell to get our message across to the ignorant, stupid masses. We must spell it out in black and white to make sure they know. And if they reject it afterward, well, then it's on them!
* {{Anvilicious}}: Subtlety is your worst enemy when it comes to arguing. The harder we hit the audience over the head, the better it will stick in their minds.[[note]]Contrast SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped for the unambiguously ''righteous'' version![[/note]]
* AuthorTract: Who cares about a good story? Our beliefs are what the works of fiction we write ''really'' have to be about.
* DisobeyThisMessage: Don't believe the same dumbass things as everyone around you! Form your own, more intelligent beliefs that look more like ours!
* EasyEvangelism: If you're against us, we'll know if you're not a lost cause based on how quickly you realize the error of your ways once we make you aware of it.
* EsotericHappyEnding: [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotAnIndex What do you mean, it's not a]] HappyEnding? It's in line with what we believe; therefore, it's a Happy Ending!
* HitlerAteSugar: Now you know. AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle.
* RealLife: Appearance only but unfortunately, we appear there ''very'' often, so much that our appearances there often inspire our appearances in fiction.
* ScareEmStraight: Kids won't remember "You'll be righteous and have good things happen to you if you go with us." as easily as they'll remember "You'll be evil and have horrific things happen to you if you go against us." Related to EasyRoadToHell and AccentuateTheNegative.
* YouBastard: There's nothing like the audience's favorite fictional character saying they should agree with us to help them to do just that.

'''Adding tropes to this index:''' Do not include any trait that a fanatic can have, only traits that are intrinsic to how he is fanatic or is the only thing the fanatic cares about. Examples of traits that are common among fanatics but shouldn't be included anyway is TheFettered, ForHappiness and ForGreatJustice. Also please note that far from everyone who fits a "who" or "how" trope is a fanatic. Having those tropes listed here means that fanatics usually fit these tropes, but in the other direction it merely means that characters who fit these tropes at least somewhat often are fanatics. KnightInSourArmor and TheFettered are both borderline cases. The former barely makes the list, the latter barely stays out.
