This is simply what you think is the (not some of the, '''''the''''') best example of any trope (an objective trope, not subjective, since this already is subjective). The "Crowning Example" if you will.

There could be several reasons you think an example is the best.
* You think it's the best in terms of illustrating the trope.
* You think it's the most well done.
* It's your favorite play in that trope.
* You just really like the source material.

Oh, several things before you list examples:
* Each troper gets one example per trope, no more.
* Don't go "no, this is," or phrases like that. This is about our own personal favorites.
* '''Sign your entries.'''

* UncannyValley
** [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 G-Man]] ~ Ultimaneo
* DevelopingDoomedCharacters
** ''Film/DogSoldiers''. As in, you will be disappointed when the werewolves show up because you wanted another twenty minutes with them, does this film pull this trope off. But given how this trope is it never works the rest of the time, is it any surprise? ~ @/{{Gadeel}}
** ''[[{{Narnia}} The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe]]'' [[FilmOfTheBook the Movie]]. Totally unnecessary tacked-on WorldWarTwo atmosphere piece.
** ''Film/{{Cloverfield}}''. To paraphrase [[Podcast/RiffTrax one critic]], fifteen minutes in and the monster's already an hour late. ~ {{@/Geoduck}}

* TheUnfavourite

** Harry Osborn from ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan''. He's the unfavorite even though he's an ''only child'', his best friend has to be the favorite. ~ 2heartgirl
* TheUnfettered
** [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Rorschach]] ~Zeppelin
* UnfortunateImplications
** TabletopGame/{{FATAL}}. All of it. -getmemygun
** Early DisneyAnimatedCanon. ~ sardns
** ''The Birth of a Nation''. One of the best films ever made seen purely from a detached, filmic angle; and one of the worst when viewed purely from a human, moral, emotional angle. Can any work in any medium beat that little dichotomy? -Ziggy Zag
*** Doesn't count; it was intentional.
* UnacceptableTargets
** [[NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead The deceased in general]] ~ Gundamforce
* UnfazedEveryman
** [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyon]] ~ [=DalesKaine=]

* UnfortunateNames
** [[BarackObama Barack Hussein Obama]]. '''Man''' he hit the nail on the head when he said the line about having been named by his father and by someone who never thought he'd be President. ~ @/{{Nlpnt}}

** '''[[Manga/{{Beelzebub}} Furuichi]]''' - Humble_user
* UnmovingPlaid: ''{{Gankutsuou}}'' ~ @/{{Dawnwing}}
* UnpleasableFanbase
** '''Literature/HarryPotter'''. If the winner is unable to perform his duties, they will be taken over by StarWars. And if the runner-up is unable to perform their duty, it will be taken over by ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' ~ @/{{Jonn}}
*** The winner ''is'' StarWars. As that page quote on this very wiki says, it's the only franchise defined by the way that fans, by definition, despise almost everything about it, and you know non-fans by their suspicious all-around approval of it. -Ziggy Zag
** WorldofWarcraft. The forum will find a way to complain about every change in every patch or die trying. ~ Ghost Pikmin
*** While attempting to kill everyone else in the process. And their mothers. ~ @/ShadowStainedSky

** VideoGame/{{Fallout}} has the [[http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/ No Mutants Allowed forums]]. Let's just leave it at that. ~Technogeek
** ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]''. Anno has trained us well. ~ @/{{Carla}}
** {{Transformers}}- Ruined FOREVER for twenty six years and counting! ~ [=VideEtCredere=]
** Series/DoctorWho, indubitably. Ruined FOREVER on at least 30 occasions, there's a reason why the usual saying is that for every fan that loves something about the show, there are 15 others who hate it, and vice versa. ~ @/{{Caiaphasthesympathist}}
** Video Games in general. ~ Gundamforce
** [[{{Runescape}} Jagex, make an update. Any update.]] ~ @/{{Zfish9}}
*** GaiaOnline, make an update. Any update. [[ScheduleSlip Or don't.]] ~ @/{{Yuihime}}
** ''TheSimpsons''. Where do you think they got the idea for many of Comic Book Guy's ways? ~redhed311
** VideoGame/TeamFortress2. If you ever go to SPUF, there will always be someone complaining about something, no matter how small it is. ~[=LordKelvin=]
** {{Victorious}}. For every ten people who love Tori's singing, there's a Jade fan who thinks Tori is irredeemable whether she tries to be nasty or nice. And so on. - excaruso
*** After the ''Series/ICarly'' [[ShipToShipCombat Shipping Wars]], why not give the career prize to DanSchneider ? ~ @/{{Nlpnt}}
** ''Literature/WarriorCats''. Nearly every character and major book is a BaseBreaker. ~ @/{{Dawnwing}}
** VideoGame/MegaMan fans. Mega Man gets a cameo and they start whining. Mega Man gets a new game and they start whining. Anything Mega Man related happens and they start whining! ~@/{{Darkton}}
** Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda. [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Too cartoony!]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Too samey!]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Too... fetch quest-y!]] ~ Lukeguy
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. How did we miss this one? ~@/{{iansimsjam}}
* UnreliableNarrator

** ''[[ThreeHundred 300]]''. ~@/TromboneChild
** [[spoiler: TheUsualSuspects]] ~ Cunny

** [[SuzumiyaHaruhi Kyon]]. ~@/{{Mapi-chan}}
*** Seconded ~ @/{{Zfish9}}

** [[VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi Beatrice]] [[MindScrew maybe?]] ~ Clevomon
** Rashomon. -Ziggy Zag
** [[TheQueensThief Eugenides]]. ~ Calatoria
* UnresolvedSexualTension
** [[TheXFiles Mulder and Scully]]. Dear god. - @/{{katyhalo}}
** [[Series/{{Castle}} Richard Castle and Kate Becket]]. ~ @/UncloudedTJ
** [[LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler]], so much. ~jadefox
* UnsettlingGenderReveal
** The most triumphant troper example goes to @/TrouserWearingBarbarian. ~ @/{{Cliche}}
** [[VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} Kappei Hiiragi]]. Fun to imagine Sunohara [[HoYay in denial]]. ~ @/{{Mapi-chan}}, @/{{neobowman}}
** Manga/{{Naruto}} and Haku ~ @/LEXicon712
*** seconded. [=DRoy=] is still in denial.
** Johnny's reaction to [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear the one and only Bridget himself.]] "I can't believe I just tried to seduce another man..." ~ @/WillyFourEyes
*** Seconded. ~ @/RayAyanami
** MButterfly: Why is it that in Chinese opera, female roles are traditionally played by a man? Because only a man knows how a women is "supposed" to behave. ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** ''Film/TheCryingGame''. ~ @/MarvelGirl
** [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Raita Ooishi]] ~ @/{{Nirao 01}}

** [[HajimeNoIppo Takamura]] pulling this trope on Bryan Hawk was by far the greatest use of the trope I have ever seen. ~ @/{{Smokie}}
** ''Anime/DragonBallZ:'' Goku's first [[SuperMode Super Saiyan]] transformation after [[spoiler:Krillin]] got killed by Frieza. {{Holy shit|Quotient}}. ~ @/KingClark
** [[AsurasWrath Asura]] blows everyone on this section out of the water when it comes to this trope. '''[[UpToEleven EVERY]]''' '''[[UpToEleven SINGLE]]''' '''[[UpToEleven ONE]]''' '''He has so much rage there's no way to kill him. He only comes back angrier each time. ~ @/DemonGodOfChaos2, matteste
