[[quoteright:350:[[Webcomic/EvilInc http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/save_christmas-wide_3587.jpg]]]]
[[caption-width-right:350:SavingChristmas is just that common, no matter the medium.]]

Tropes and elements that are used in almost all media and are not restricted to a single category (such as VideoGameTropes).

Contrast OmnipresentTropes, which are in a work more often than [[AvertedTrope not]]. And no, this page has nothing to do with Creator/{{Universal}} Studios or [[Ride/UniversalStudios their parks]].

Oh, and [[http://xkcd.com/609/ hello]] to all you ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' readers. (And [[http://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/index.php?title=609 thank you]] [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife for the information]]!)
