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.'''

** VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}, with Darkrai, Ghetsis and Purple Eyes being popular examples, even if Ghetsis doesn't qualify as a CompleteMonster. ~@/KandiKorn22

** [[Film/DirtyHarry The Scorpio Killer]]. ~Killer BOB Dole
** [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Apollo Justice's]] [[spoiler:Kristoph Gavin]]. For an idea of this, he gets so mad that as he raises his fist to bang on the witness stand in frustration, the [[spoiler:dishes]] that had previously fallen on the ground behind him ''rise up into the air and fall down as he slams his fist on the witness stand.'' Please note: this man has no magic powers. ~Darkurai
*** Same game series, different perp: [[spoiler:Damon Gant]]. How many villains do ''you'' know that have a breakdown speech where they stand there laughing and clapping maniacally for an ''entire minute''? ~ @/WillyFourEyes
*** Same series (notice a trend?), different villain: [[spoiler: Manfred von Karma]]. After he spends hours grinning smugly at you, the guy snaps like a twig on slow-motion and bangs his head against the wall after ''screaming at the top of his lungs''. ~ vicnog
*** Really, pretty much any villain in this series. [[spoiler:Redd White]] with his strange headdesking thing, [[spoiler:Dahlia Hawthorne]] in 3-1 AND 3-5. [[spoiler:The Tiger]]'s seizure-inducing breakdown, and [[spoiler:Daryan Cresend]] and his hair. Going everywhere.
*** Gotta give it to [[spoiler:Matt Engarde]] clawing his face out, although all of the breakdowns in the series are great. Considering it's kind of a once an episode type thing, the whole SERIES deserves to be the Most Triumphant Example, although this troper is tempted by [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] and [[TheWire Marlo Stanfield]]. ~rickdakirb
** ''Film/RedDragon'' ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]] ~ @/{{Lionheart0}}
** [[TheWire Marlo Stanfield]]: '''MY NAME IS MY NAME!''' ~ insert_name_here92
** Dukat in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' to the point of [[spoiler:''getting plastic surgery to make him look like a Bajoran and seducing the head of the Bajoran religion.'' One might say his breakdown turned him into a MagnificentBastard.]] ~ [=EvaLilith=]
** [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Soujirou Seta]]. His sudden change from DissonantSerenity to this is damn ''scary'', and simply masterful ~ @/{{Carla}}
*** Seconded. ~ gatotsu911
** [[FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends World,]] a RealityWarper who controls all aspects of the world inside his toybox. When he gets angry, the world literally begins to [[EarthShatteringKaboom implode upon itself.]] ~ @/DontKillBugs

** [[AmericanPsycho Patrick Bateman]] -getmemygun
** InvaderZim ~@/{{Pikawil}}
** TheAbominableDrPhibes, particularly in the sequel ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** [[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]]. Non-stop. The games never try to hide from you the fact that the guy is a monster, and after the events of the first game you can cross off the Hero in AntiHero in regards to him. ~ The Jerk with No Name, Dracosummoner, @/{{todbot1}}
** WebVideo/{{Doctor Horrible|sSingAlongBlog}}. ~ [=EvaLilith=]
** The Nazis from ''Film/DasBoot''. No other story I know of can so consistently make you root for them and feel for them before slapping yourself once more and reminding yourself of who they are. That ending alone seals the deal. -Ziggy Zag
** Tony Montana from {{Scarface}}. ~ [=CounterBlitzkrieg=]
** Alex from ''Literature/AClockworkOrange''. ~ gatotsu911

** [[FernGully Toxic Love]] by [[TimCurry Hexxus]] ~ @/{{Surenity}}
** [[Disney/TheLionKing Scar's]] "Be Prepared". Jeremy Irons, Nazi imagery, and mountains of ''bones''. ~ @/VoodooChild
*** Seconded. ~ @/{{Carla}}
*** Thirded. ~ @/AceNoctali
*** Fourthed. ~ @/AllsparkSpinOut
** ANY of DavidBowie's songs from Labyrinth. [[EarWorm You remind me of the babe!]] ~ MetaFalcario
** [[{{Anastasia}} "In the Dark of the Night"]] by [[JimCummings Rasputin]] ~@/MacPhisto
** "The Acid Queen" from ''Tommy'', by TheWho. Or maybe "Career of Evil" by Music/BlueOysterCult if that counts. -Ziggy Zag
** What? No mention of Ursula? [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid You poor unfortunate souls!]] -Max1099
** DoctorSteel. Many, since he's a musical supervillain. But "Dr. Steel" is probably the crowner. "I have become the man with a plan / With an army of toys and a mechanical band / Ruling the world making everything real / I’m Dr. Steel, Dr. Steel!" ~ @/JonnyB
** [[EvilMatriarch The Queen of the Night's]] aria "Der Hoelle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen," from Mozart's ''Theatre/TheMagicFlute''.
** [[Music/TheProtomen The Hounds]]. ~ @/KingClark
*** "There is a hell that has been building from the moment we first met." indeed. So very seconded. ~@/ReplisMonathin
*** I feel like I'm betraying Disney a little here, but... thirded. ~ @/InsanityPrelude
** [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} "Prince Ali (Reprise)", by Jafar]] ~ @/StClair
** [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas "Whoa-oh~! (Whoa-oh~!) Whoa-oh~! (Whoa-oh~!) WHOA-oh~! (WHOA-oh~!) I~'M THE OOGIE BOOGIE MAN~!"]] ~ @/NintendoNate25

** [[Music/{{Voltaire}} And it's so easy when you're evil... (...) I do it all because I'm evil...]] - @/ChrisX
** If [[Main/{{VeggieTales}} The Bunny Song]] counts, that's one of my faves. -Whunt
* TheVillainSucksSong
** ''[[ASongOfIceAndFire ...And so he spoke, and so he spoke. That Lord of Castamere. But now the rains weep o'er his halls with no one there to hear...]]'' ~ @/{{Oberyn}}

** [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} GOLDFINGEEEEEEEEERR!!]] HE'S THE MAN! THE MAN WITH A MIDAAAAAS TOOOOOUCH!!! -Whunt
* VillainSue
** Captain Broken himself, [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Sousuke Aizen]]. ~ @/{{Lionheart0}}
*** So much that him losing ''at all'' will be terribly OOC. ~ @/{{Carla}}
** VideoGame/SonicExe - a boring InvincibleVillain. The backstory to the character only reinforces the MarySue-ishness. ~ @/KingClark
** BombQueen ~ Tongpu
** [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Terumi Yuuki]]. Yes, he may look like a magnificent {{Troll}} in plain eyes, but dig in deep and you'll see he pretty much out-sues all entries above. ~ @/ChrisX
** Unquestionably [[{{Naruto}} Uchiha Madara]]. Overpowered when he was nothing more than an offhand reference to a character thought long dead, his eventual appearance in the manga has become a stream of ever more nauseating sue-ness until he reaches the stage where he can basically do whatever the hell he wants to anything he wants any time he wants. None of the rules or precendents of the setting apply to him, he summons up NewPowersAsThePlotDemands practically without thinking, {{No Sell}}s absolutely everything, he's a GodModeSue so absurd he makes the most amateurish efforts by the most uncreative fanfiction writers look weak by comparison. And he's not even a remotely well written villain either, which just rubs salt into the wound. ~ @/ArcaneAzmadi
* VillainWithGoodPublicity
** [[{{Berserk}} Griffith]] ~ mrbits

** [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer The Mayor]] ~ @/MarvelGirl

** [[TsubasaReservoirChronicle Fai and Kurogane.]] ~ chibihana
* VivaLasVegas
** ''TheHangover'' ~ Mens Rea
** ''FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' ~ @/{{Wackd}}
* VocalMinority
** [[{{Eagleland}} Americans]]. Most of them are not loud, boorish, fat, lazy, uncultured, stupid, etc. Shocking, isn't it. ~ Gundamforce
** {{Straw Feminist}}s. ''So'' vocal and ''so'' triumphant that even many tropers on this very wiki seem to believe that feminism is synonymous with misandry. ~ @/{{Gfrequency}}
** Conspiracy theorists in general. You'll be surprised to find out that most conspiracy theories actually had less adherents that it seems. ~ [=CounterBlitzkrieg=]
** ''Film/{{Avatar}}''-bashers, even now, well over a year after the film's release. For the want of good things said about the film on the internet by ''anyone anywhere'' (or even new jokes made about the same few perceived flaws by the haters), it is extremely difficult to consider the film's good reputation anything but mythical. Will it ''never'' end?! - [=ZuulMF=]

* WaifFu
** River's magnificent fights in {{Firefly}}'s GrandFinale. ~Lyanna
*** Seconded. ~ @/VoodooChild
* WakeUpCallBoss
** [[VideoGame/SinAndPunishmentStarSuccessor Orion Tsang]]. So you bulldoze through Stage 1, then comes this boss. And unlike the game up to this point, he '''does not''' fuck around. ~ [=TsundeRay=]
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
** ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' ~ @/SteveMB

* WallOfText
** You haven't ''seen'' walls of text until you've read the (Ultimate) Warrior's comic book. Seriously...every page of that damn thing is like that. I think this, more than anything, is what qualifies the man as beyond batshit insane. ~ @/WillyFourEyes
** ''{{Sonichu}}''. And when I say "Most Triumphant", I don't mean it as a good thing. ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** No comic can match the Most (or rather, Least) Triumphant film example, the opening crawl of ''Alone in the Dark''. Has anybody tried ''timing'' that thing? -[=ZuulMF=]
** Webcomic/{{Subnormality}} ~ sinesofinsanity
** [[http://satwcomic.com/a-bad-day This]] strip from ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld''. ~ [=HotelCalifornia=]
* WalkingTechbane
** [[TheDresdenFiles Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden]]. Take a moment to think about all the things he makes reference to (the EvilOverlordList, countless movies, [[ShoutOut/TheDresdenFiles shout outs to everything you can think of]]). And yet this guy can't use any technology from after World War II. You've never seen someone so determined to be a PopCulturedBadass. ~@/LucyZephyr
* TheWalrusWasPaul
** ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' ~ @/{{Carla}}
** ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}'' ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** Creator/JamesJoyce. ~ @/VoodooChild
** "Stone of Love", by Music/BlueOysterCult -Ziggy Zag
** ''TheBigLebowski'' ~ gatotsu911
** "Music/TheWhiteAlbum" by Music/TheBeatles. Bonus points for including the TropeNamer. ~ [=HotelCalifornia=]
* {{Wangst}}
** [[{{Clerks}} I'm stuck in this pit, earning less than slave wages, working on my day off, dealing with every backward fuck on the planet, the goddamn steel shutters are locked all day, I smell like shoe polish, ]][[spoiler:[[{{Clerks}} I've got an ex-girlfriend who's catatonic after fucking a dead guy]]]], [[{{Clerks}} and my present girlfriend has sucked thirty-six dicks...My life is in the shitter right about now, so if you don't mind I'd like to stew a bit."]] You may say that there's no good example of wangst, but this is the best one purely because, unlike most others, it's fully intentional. Smith doesn't honestly intend for you to think that moping to the extent he does is reasonable, especially when a good deal of his suffering is self-inflicted. Randal calls Dante on it, [[spoiler:Katlin comes back]] specifically because she expects him to be a wreck, and [[spoiler:Veronica breaks up with him over it.]] The absolute only way to justify, let alone play, this trope. ~[[@/{{Wackd}} Wack'd]]
** Again, ''{{Sonichu}}''. The author doesn't even bother with an attempt at subtlety. ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** Simple Plan. Look no further than ''Welcome To My Life'' ~ sardns

*** The rainbow? Just with a name like that, [[FluffyTheTerrible it has to be badass.]]
*** Heck, Nanoha is the cutest little WaveMotionGun ever, and if you don't agree, she'll just ''befriend'' you. ~ @/MarvelGirl
** Krenim Temporal Weapon from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. ''Absolutely nothing'' beats the gun that erase things from history and also rewrite history to fit the erasure. ~@/{{onyhow}}
** [[VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia MOON STONE CANNON, FIRE!!!]] ~Sparky Lurkdragon

** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The Positron Rifle]]. It takes ''all of Japan's energy'' for it to shoot ''twice''. The angel it was used against counts, too, but since they destroyed it with the Rifle... ~ @/{{Carla}}
** The [[RType R-type]] universe. This is a place where even the smallest fighters are fielded with a WaveMotionGun, the guns scale up to and including a WaveMotionGun designed to depopulate planets (that fit onto a battleship the size of a few city blocks) and a KillSat with a WaveMotionGun that can wipe out whole fleets. ~ @/UnknownTroper
** Thor's Hammer/The Mana Cannon from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''. A WaveMotionGun so big that if you power it with the world's mana - which is what it was ''designed for'' - it ''kills the WorldTree producing that mana''. The only time we know of that it was ever safely fired was at a lower capacity, and powered by the Summon Spirits instead of drawing from the local mana pool directly. ~ @/SylviaViridian
** [[{{Blame}} Graviton Beam Emitter]] looks like a tiny handgun, except that it fire a beam 70 KM LONG laser that can blow holes in metal structures that shrugs off [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Bomba big honking nukes]] like dirt. ~ [[@/DRoy]]

** Again, ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' ~ @/{{King of the Mime Swing}}
* WorldOfPun
** ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing''. Nearly everything in the game is a ShoutOut, a pun, or both. ~ @/InsanityPrelude
* WreakingHavok
** ''Just Cause 2''. The game's ''main gimmick'' is being able to attach stuff to other stuff with a grapple rope. And about half of said stuff ''explodes''. ~ Krieg
** ''RedFaction: Guerrilla''. Can't get more [[BuffySpeak Havok-y]] than that. ~ @/{{onyhow}}
* WrenchWench
** [[WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers Gadget Hackwrench]] ~ @/{{Surenity}}, redhed311

** Bram Stoker, at least in ''Literature/{{Dracula}}'' ~ @/{{Lale}}
* WrittenByTheWinners
** [[Manga/OnePiece The World Government]] took this to its most logical extreme: the century prior to their formation is denied to even ''exist''. ~ @/{{King of the Mime Swing}}
* WTHCastingAgency
** ''TransformersTheMovie''. '''[[Film/CitizenKane ORSON.]] [[Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds WELLES.]]''' As a '''TRANSFORMER.''' ~ cg12345
*** [[MoneyDearBoy "I play a big toy who does horrible things to a bunch of smaller toys."]] ~ @/ManWithoutABody
** Joseph Gordon-Levitt as [[GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra Cobra Commander]]. I don't even know GIJoe that well and it still boggles the mind! ~ @/VoodooChild
** Heath Ledger as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. It was the oddest choice, almost nobody (including myself) believed in it, and it turned out to be one of the best instances of a "so crazy it just might work" idea actually working in the history of filmmaking. ~ Ziggy Zag
** The entire cast of ''RepoTheGeneticOpera''. SarahBrightman alongside [[Film/TheDevilsRejects Bill Moseley]] alongside [[SpyKids Alexa Vega]] alongside [[SkinnyPuppy Nivek Ogre]] alongside [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Anthony]] [[Series/{{Merlin}} Stewart Head]] alongside Paris Hilton alongside [[{{Goodfellas}} Paul Sorvino]]... and putting it all together, Music/YoshikiHayashi. ~ Alta
** ''Seemingly,'' casting Bryan Cranston, best known as [[Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle Hal]] as a [[Series/BreakingBad high school teacher turned meth cook]]. How could that possibly work? [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail Three Emmys, two SGA awards, and one Golden Globe later...]] rtw2act
