An extremely popular title and naming convention in almost every media and most genres, including RealLife. This is one of the oldest known naming formulas; it is already an established formula in ''[[Literature/ArabianNights One Thousand and One Nights]]'', with internal stories named things like "The Tale of the Bull and the Ass" and "The City of Brass".

Some of the most common variant formulas are:
* The (Common Noun) of (Proper Noun) (e.g. ''The Sword of Shannara'', ''The Riddlemaster of Hed'', ''The Tale of Genji'', ''The Chronicles of Amber'');
* The (Common Noun) of (Common Noun) (e.g. ''The Valley of Fear'', ''The Ambassadors of Fear'', ''Attack of the Clones'');
* The (Proper Noun) of (Placename) (e.g. ''Elric of Melnibone'', ''The Phantom of the Opera'').

The presence or absence of articles ("the", "a", and "an") and their placement create even more variants, as do the optional use of adjectives before either the "X" or the "Y".

A sub-convention is CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase. Please put examples that fall into that convention on that page, not here. For the related form "The Adjective Noun" see MadLibThrillerTitle. See also GenreTitleGrabBag. TitleOfTheDead and AgeOfTitles are sub-tropes. Usually overlaps with RevengeOfTheSequel.

* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''
** "The Eye of Jupiter"
** "The Tomb of Athena"
** "The Arrow of Apollo" (Which has lead many, ''many'' fans to make terrible puns referring to a character whose callsign is, in fact, Apollo.)
** The [[ArcWords repeated use of the phrase]] "the shape of things to come" (which is also an HGWells novel) may be another example.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' did this so often ('''''124 times''''' by the 50th anniversary in November 2013) that the companion book "A History of the Universe" used "The Noun of Adjective" as the title in its sample entry (the revised edition ''Ahistory'' used "The Repetition of the Cliché"). Just to name a sample:

** Directly referenced in the Creator/BigFinish audio ''...Ish'', where the Doctor lists "The Adjective of Noun" as one of the sentient ''words'' he has encountered in his travels.
** Statistically the most likely title? [[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E4PlanetOfTheDaleks "Planet of the Daleks"]]. Also surprisingly high on the list: [[DeathTakesAHoliday The Death of Death]] and [[Film/GroundhogDay The Day of Time]].
** One Comic Relief ''Doctor Who'' special was entitled ''Recap/DoctorWhoTheCurseOfFatalDeath'', spoofing both this practice and the title "The Deadly Assassin", which was [[ShapedLikeItself about as silly.]]
** And that's just out of universe. In universe we also have The Hand of Omega, The Arc of Infinity (also an episode title), The (insert noun here) of Rassilon...
** ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' follows in its parent show's footsteps, racking up 14 examples over five series.

** ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan The Wrath of Khan]]''
