'''Basic Trope''': [A one sentence summary of the trope... Stolen from LaconicWiki]
* '''Straight''': Example of the trope using bizarre names on the basis that AliceAndBob is too boring.
** Unnecessary additional straight example that's pretty much just a rewording of the above. Failure to fix the indentation after adding another example.
** Example using two names that are almost identical, which makes it impossible to keep track of who is who. (The indentation is still not fixed.)
** Example using AliceAndBob for the umpteenth time, grating on the nerves of the long-time Playing With Wiki users who are sick of seeing them everywhere.
** Example using AliceAndBob even though such mundane names sound silly or don't make sense in context.
** Example using Alice, Bob, Charlotte, Daniel and Elise, even though it could benefit from {{Meaningful Name}}s.
** Example introducing half a dozen characters who won't serve any purpose in the rest of this page.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** An instruction to See Parodied, even though the point of this page is to point out the differences between them.
** The trope played to at least two orders of magnitude more than you will ever see.
* '''Downplayed''': The trope played perfectly straight, but with the addition of words like "a bit" and "slightly".
* '''Justified''': An excuse for why the trope makes sense in the works of This Troper's favorite author.
** Another justification, improperly indented.
*** Another justification (indentation starts getting worse) which amounts to saying that it's OK because the whole thing is a work of fiction anyway.
** The second justification in different words.
** An example of the trope being {{enforced| trope}}.
** An example of the trope being {{Hand Wave}}d with a VoodooShark.
** An example of the trope, with a reason why it's not bad, [[TropesAreTools because you see normally tropes are bad, except when they're "justified", which means they're good]].
** Wacky, over-the-top and probably superfluous "justification" That Troper made up out of whole cloth and added just because they were bored.
** Yet another justification That Troper added because it's exactly what happens in his favourite work and dammit, no-one's thought to add it yet!
* '''Inverted''':
** The trope played perfectly straight but with a GenderFlip, even though the trope has nothing to do with gender.
** The trope being Averted.
** Trope being played straight for everyone ''except'' AliceAndBob.
** A [[{{Pun}} terrible pun]] of what would literally be the opposite of the trope's name, potholed to DeadpanSnarker.
** An inversion of the straight example, even if the trope itself is stilled played straight.
* '''Subverted''': Something that is Administrivia/NotASubversion...
* '''Double Subverted''': ...and leads to the trope being played perfectly straight.
* '''Parodied''': An instruction to See Exaggerated.
** The trope being PlayedForLaughs.
* '''Zig Zagged''':
** A confusing mess that would justify any professional writer being taken out and shot.
** The work sometimes plays the trope straight, and other times it does not.
** Several played with versions of this trope, copy pasted from other parts of this page.
* '''Averted''':
** Metaphysical proposal of a universe in which the trope's existence would be logically impossible.
** The trope being Inverted.
** The trope being avoided in a work that has no reason to use it in the first place.
* '''Enforced''': The trope being played perfectly straight, but with emphasis on the fact that the writers knew they were doing it.
** The trope being Invoked.
* '''Lampshaded''': "A description of the trope being played perfectly straight, but in quotation marks!"
* '''Invoked''': The trope being Discussed.
** The trope being Exploited.
* '''Exploited''': The trope being Invoked.
* '''Defied''':
** The trope being Subverted.
** The trope being Averted.
** The trope being effectively impossible.
** "You know TropeName? I don't like TropeName."
* '''Discussed''':
** "The trope actually being Conversed!"
** "The trope actually being Lampshaded!"
** "Lol, the trope is dumb and unrealistic!"
* '''Conversed''':
** "More of the same, proving that This Troper thinks all three are the exact same thing!"
** A direct reply to the discussed example above.
* '''Implied''': The trope explicitly not happening, but [[SingleIssueWonk someone with a chip on their shoulder]] wants to complain about it anyway.
* '''Deconstructed''':
** The trope played perfectly straight, but with several horrible twists that put the characters through hell and give unwanted insight into the darkest recesses of This Troper's psyche.
** The audience reacting negatively to this trope.
** The trope being played straight in This Troper's favourite dark and edgy work.
** The trope being Subverted, Averted, Inverted or otherwise Administrivia/NotADeconstruction.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** The trope played perfectly straight, but with lashings of TastesLikeDiabetes and/or {{Glurge}}.
** The audience decided they like the trope after all.
** As Deconstructed, but in the end [[DeusExMachina Everything Turns Out Just Fine]].
** A "reconstruction" of an aversion, inversion or subversion.
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''':
** A bunch of ???s because nobody knows what to do with this category.
** A random transformation because no one really knows what this means.
** The trope is done on purpose by the creators, even though the trope is ''normally'' done intentionally.
* '''Played For Laughs''': An instruction to See Parodied.
** The trope being mocked by This Troper's favourite comedian.
* '''Played For Drama''':
** An instruction to See Deconstructed, despite the fact that they're entirely different things.
** The character(s) is[=/=]are DrivenToSuicide.[[note]]... And, that's it! Instant drama born from the minimal amount of writing and thought effort.[[/note]] Bonus Points if it was triggered by something relatively mundane[=/=]not-worthy, therefore coming up as extremely jarring or even [[BlackComedy darkly]] [[ComicalOverreacting humorous]].
* '''[[{{VideoGame/Eversion}} Everted]]''': No one knows what this means, but someone thought it'd be clever to add it.
* '''Obscure transformation that This Troper probably made up''': Example that couldn't be shoehorned into any of the above.
