----
* AbhorrentAdmirer, BeautifulAllAlong, FatGirl, VanityIsFeminine: There is nothing more important to women than appearance.

* AbuseMistake: If you're doing something to people that doesn't look abusive, it is abuse and you should be ashamed of yourself! However, if people do something to you that's seemingly abusive, it's not abuse, so suck it up.
* AbusiveParents: If you're a parent who's got some serious issues, take them out on your children to make yourself feel better.
** Children, if your parents weren't nice to you, respect them anyways. Otherwise, you're bad for not doing so.
* AccentuateTheNegative: You don't really have any legitimate arguments against whatever you're talking about. You're just a complainer, and you know what we say about [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong them...]]
* TheAce[=/=]AlwaysSomeoneBetter: You just will never be as good as him/her. In ''anything''.
* AcceptableTargets: Always target these people. Don't question it and never wonder why.

* AffablyEvil, GoodIsNotNice, and PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes: Good people are rude, harsh, and abusive while evil people are polite, gentle, and civil.
** If you're an asshole to everyone, then that means you're a good person. If you're nice to everyone, then you're an evil person.
** You can be a good person and still be a heartless bastard; you can be the nicest person in the world and still be evil.
* AlasPoorScrappy: Hated characters are better off dead so the fans can start liking them.
* AllCrimesAreEqual: Whether it's murdering innocents, stealing your neighbor's car, or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking stepping on your neighbor's grass]], you will pay the penalty dearly if you commit any of these. That's the law.
** Also, if you want to keep people on the straight and narrow path, make every crime equally heinous.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: All females are bitches because they don't like their guy best friend back.
* AllTheGoodMenAreGay: He's polite, kind and [[GuysAreSlobs showers on a daily basis]]. He can't be straight.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Love and relationships between men and women in general are uninteresting if they're not hurtful.

* AmbiguousDisorder: Mental illness is ''adorable''.
* AmbitionIsEvil: Improving your life is bad and you should feel bad for doing this.
* AndThatsTerrible: [[{{Anvilicious}} All Anvils]] [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped need to be dropped all the time]]. ViewersAreMorons who will constantly forget when something is ObviouslyEvil (or [[LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit "especially heinous"]]), and need it constantly pointed out to them.
* AngerBornOfWorry: If someone got themselves in serious danger, express your anger as a way to mask your fear and worry for their well-being.
* AngstWhatAngst: Not being affected by a traumatic event makes you a sociopath.
* AngryBlackMan & SassyBlackWoman: Black people are always portrayed as having a bad attitude or a bad temper.
* AnimationAgeGhetto: All animation is for kids, and if you say otherwise, you're stupid.

* AppealToWorseProblems: It's good to guilt people by comparing serious problems (like children starving in Africa) to their problems.
* ArrangedMarriage: Might as well call it slave breeding with a little more freedom.
* AskAStupidQuestion: People deserve to be insulted because they ask stupid questions.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: It's better to be open about doing stupid, cruel, or evil things than to be an outright hypocrite. What's even better is that you don't have to learn from your mistakes.
* {{Badass}}: If you don't fit this mold to the letter, [[WhatMeasureIsANonBadass you are useless and shouldn't even have been given a role in this story in the first place]].
** {{Badbutt}}: Do you think you're awesome just because you talk smart, hold your own in a fight, regularly save the day without batting an eye, and don't care about being anyone's role model? Sorry. Unless you routinely spout explicit profanity, womanize, and find other ways to piss off MoralGuardians, you're worthless.
* BadBoss, MeanBoss, and PointyHairedBoss: Your boss is either evil, mean, stupid, or all three.
* BaldWoman, BoyishShortHair and LongHairIsFeminine: Women with short hair or no hair aren't feminine. Short or bald hair means you're a lesbian or something is very wrong with you.
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan: All the guy cares about is your sex appeal so you should flaunt it, never mind anything else
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Never wish for anything, there will always been some [[LiteralGenie unforseen]] [[JackassGenie consequence]] that will make you regret it.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: If the prophecy is fact, then you should always accept it and fulfill it without question.
* BecauseISaidSo: Good parents should always give nonsensical reasons (or no reasons whatsoever) why a child shouldn't practice immorality.
* BeingGoodSucks and KnightInSourArmor: Doing the right thing means that your life sucks. But you should buck it up and continue doing it anyway, because, whether you like it or not, it's always worth it, even if you have to lose your family, friends, and lover because you did the right thing.
* BeliefMakesYouStupid: You cannot be both a man of science and a man of faith.
** Or it doesn't matter how intelligent/wise you are; if you believe in a higher power, you're automatically an idiot.
* BestYearsOfYourLife: Teenagers, if you're being tortured by many people in high school in many ways possible, then that means it's, without question, the best years of your life. If you can't accept this fact, then high school will suck for you even more, and it's your own fault for not making it the best that it should be.
** Parents, if your child is having a bad day in school, give them this line to stop their justified complaining. Doing so will make them believe it even if they will ''never'' see it.
** Being bullied in high school [[CrapsackWorld really is the happiest life experience you'll have]]. [[FromBadToWorse It's all downhill from there]].
* BetaCouple: They're there to remind you what you'll never be.
* BeYourself: You don't have to change for anyone. Be what you want to be, especially if it's something that your family, friends, and other respectable members of society see as disgusting, offensive, immoral, or etc.
** You should never try being something that you're not, especially if this means being a successful person.
* BittersweetEnding: True happy endings have to be mixed with sadness and misery.
* BlackBestFriend: Interracial friendships are never genuine. They are there as plot devices to make white people seem progressive and let black people feel important. The friendship must be rated by how high of a pedestal the white friend is put on.
* BlackComedyRape: [[DudeNotFunny Rape is hilarious!!]]
** There are AcceptableTargets for rape now.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: The heroes are a bunch of unlikable douchebags, but we should root for them anyways because the villains are a lot worse.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Morals that are confusing and highly questionable are more valid than regular morals.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: All teenage girls are bratty, self-centered bitches who only care about themselves. Never make them smart or independent.
* BrutalHonesty: S/he's a honest person. Just ask the people who are hurt by his/her truth. And if they can't take it, then that makes them terrible people.
** It's better to tell the truth that hurts people's feelings than to tell a lie that pleases them. One, white lies are from the devil. And two, who cares about people's feelings?
** It's OK to be an arsehole as long as you don't lie.
** Never try to sugarcoat the truth, EVER!!
** It doesn't matter how the honesty is received as long as it's received.
** People who tell the hurtful truth are worthy of our respect while those who tell pleasing lies aren't.
* TheBully, AlphaBitch, and JerkJock: Hey boys and girls! In order to cover up your insecurities and to assert yourself as a strong person is to sublimating your self-esteem issues into rampant dickery and threats of physical violence. ''Always'' pick on the NiceGuy[=/=]NiceGirl and make their lives a living hell, [[KafkaKomedy even if they did nothing wrong]]. Plus, they are ''always'' in the wrong [[TheDogBitesBack for fighting back and defending themselves.]]
** However, if ''you're'' get bullied, something is wrong with you. It's ''your'' fault for being a target.
* ButNotTooBlack: If there is a light-skinned person of color in any work, it's because the casting directors are racist, Or the casting directors think the viewers are racists. There is ''no way'' they could have been cast on talent. No, not even when there are major dark-skinned characters ''in the same series''.
** White men like Creator/HalleBerry because they hate dark-skinned black women with prominent African features. And for NO OTHER REASON.
** ButNotTooBlack is the new black, and people should just deal with it.
** Despite the increasing numbers of interracial marriages and relationships, any products of those relationships shown can only be there for ButNotTooBlack reasons.
** Any sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable from racism.
*** If you happen to be black, you shouldn't be visible unless your ButNotTooBlack.
** Alternatively, prominent black features are all concrete an any deviation is clearly just a case of ButNotTooBlack.
** ButNotTooWhite: You can't be too pale either. You should go for that nice tan like complexion.
** ButNotTooGay: Straight men [[RatedMForManly have no limit to how straight they can be]]. Gay people shouldn't [[HideYourGays ''flaunt it'']]. ([[DoubleStandard Note that this ''only'' applies to men]]...and {{Butch Lesbian}}s)
*** People only superficially accept gay people for their stereotypical {{camp}}ness, never for actually being attracted to the same gender. You'll never really be out of the closet.
* BlackSheepHit: If you only know one song by an artist or band, don't even think about liking it. You only know that song because it's completely different from the rest of the creators' work. At best, you are only appreciating them for their cheap sell-out phase. At worst, you're the reason why none of their other songs have ever been successful.
* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: If you do something bad, even though it's nothing compared to heinous crimes such as murder and rape, our great moral enforcers will ''find'' you and will ''punish'' you while we let go of the villains.
* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Like it or not, you will miss the presence of a character who was so annoying or horrible to you.
* CantTakeCriticism: If someone is pointing out your flaws, either politely or cruelly, beat the shit out of them!
** Also, if you criticize a person, it's going to bite you in the ass, no matter how much you're justified in doing so.
** If you are sensitive of hearing criticism, you are a very horrible person.
* CatsAreMean: Cats are ObviouslyEvil creatures. Need proof see ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven 2''.
* CausticCritic: Critics who give out abrasive and scathing reviews on works are hilarious!
* TheChewToy: We love to see this character suffer!
* ChildHater: You have the right to antagonize children and teenagers. They're all nothing but annoying, immature, self-centered, and disrespectful brats.
* ChivalrousPervert: It's completely okay to be a pervert as long as you're respectful to the opposite gender.
* ComedicSociopathy: Seeing people suffer is funny!
* CompassionateCritic: If you are being ruthlessly criticized by somebody, then that means they care about you and want what's best for you.
** Criticizing people automatically makes you a caring person.
* ComplainingAboutComplaining: Complaining is okay as long as you're complaining about someone who is complaining.
* ComplimentBackfire: If someone is saying something nice about you, beat them up!
** Never say anything nice to another or you will regret it.
* ConspiracyKitchenSink: Television producers shouldn't be promoting skepticism and critical thinking. Instead, they should say that the CrazyHomelessPerson on the street is right about everything, and bring fringe theories into the mainstream.
** The US government is the most evil organization of our time.
* ContractualPurity: To family-friendly actors, if you're doing normal adult activities, you're jeopardizing your own career.
* CreepyCrossdresser: Any transvestite who doesn't [[WholesomeCrossdresser pull off the gender illusion flawlessly]] is a fetishist or creepy pervert out to get you.
** Unless he's Creator/EddieIzzard.
* CruelToBeKind: In order to be kind to someone, you have to do something so cruel, thoughtless, and insensitive to them.
* CruelMercy: The best way to forgive others is to let them suffer a FateWorseThanDeath.

* CutenessEqualsForgiveness: CuteIsEvil?! No impossible.
* DarkShepherd: What better way to led people to the path of righteousness than to act like scary, brutal, and intimidating monsters?
* DeadpanSnarker: Constantly resorting to sarcasm makes you edgy and endearing. It won't come off as obnoxious or drive away everyone you know at all!
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Friendship is just like slavery!
** Beating people up is a perfectly acceptable way to form friendships, and will often solve all their mental problems.
* ADegreeInUseless: The only thing that matters when you want a job is experience. Intelligence, skills, and determination don't. If you don't have any job experience, you're useless.
** ...and thus will never get any job experience because you don't have the experience required to get more experience. So don't even bother looking, you might as well as become homeless and then die just as the way nature intended.
* {{Determinator}}: If you ever fail, it's because you just don't care enough.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: You didn't get the girl because you don't deserve her and you're worthless.
* DieForOurShip: How dare he/she like her/him don't you know she/he's pure EVIL!!!
* DirtyCoward: Being afraid of certain things makes you a horrible human being.
* DisposableWoman: If a female character is written this way, it's her fault, not the writers.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Getting revenge on people for the smallest offenses is justified!
* DoggedNiceGuy: Guys, how many times do we have to hammer it into your thick skulls that women are masochistic deep down and enjoy being treated like shit? If you want her, insult her to her face, contempt her, humiliate her and ignore her. She ''will'' want you if you do that. Don't be nice and don't take care of her, it ''never'' works.
** Girls, stop being so dumb, okay? If you're reasonably attractive, you '''can't''' have a straight male friend. No straight guy in his right mind would ever put up with your uninteresting drama if not for the possibility of nailing you and will call you a manipulative bitch if you don't open them legs. You want a friend with a penis? Take a homo.
* DontMakeMeTakeMyBeltOff: The best way to discipline your children isn't giving them time outs, but to bring a belt and whip them in their butts to show that you're the parent and you're not going to let them do what they want. And don't hold back because they're smaller and weaker than you. Show the little brats no mercy!
* DontYouDarePityMe: Never sympathize with people, or they will hurt you.
* DopeSlap: It's perfectly acceptable to slap someone across the head when they do or say something stupid.
* DoubleStandard: Having a preference in any way on any subject (especially sexuality and gender issues) is just plain wrong.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Heterosexual women are innately CloserToEarth and should be allowed, or even encouraged to, commit physical and emotional abuse that would get a man in their position arrested.
** Lesbians on the other hand are pure evil because they don't fall in love with the guy they abuse.
* DracoInLeatherPants: He/She's so cool, Who cares if he raped and killed children? They obviously deserved it.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: Nobody gave you the recognition you deserve? Quit complaining and do your job!

* DumbBlonde[=/=]BlondesAreEvil[=/=]BlondGuysAreEvil[=/=]SlashersPreferBlondes: You have blonde hair, so there gotta be something bad about you.
* DumbIsGood, IdiotHero, and KindheartedSimpleton: Stupid characters are morally better and likable than intelligent ones.
* {{Eagleland}}: Americans are either angels or devils. No exceptions.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Suffering and misery are required for you to become happy in the latter.
* EarWorm: There is no moral. Singers are just arses.
** Forget about writing a good song; that takes too much work. Just write a catchy hook with a repeated lyric and the masses will confuse catchiness for quality.
* EasilyForgiven: Who cares what they did? You should always accept them with open arms.
** You see that school bully who made your life hell in high school? Forgive him or her, no matter what. If you don't, something's wrong with you.
** Also, if you continuously do very bad things to everyone, know that everyone will always forgive you and forget what you did. It's simple.
* EasyRoadToHell: If you do at least one bad deed (whether minor or severe), you've just signed your own reservation to go to FireAndBrimstoneHell.
* EnemiesEqualsGreatness: If people hate your guts, it means you're awesome.
** If you hate people, then it's more than likely they will become more successful than you'll ever be.
** If you don't have any enemies, you suck.
** Having enemies is better than having friends.
* EnragedByIdiocy and SurroundedByIdiots: Never tolerate stupid people.
* EntitledBastard: Who cares if the person you're helping is an ungrateful jerk? If you stop helping him, then you're a terrible excuse of a human being.
* EntitledToHaveYou: Anyone who refuses to return any affections is a {{jerkass}}.
* EsotericHappyEnding: If an author determines on what is a true happy ending, it's an happy ending. Accept it.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: If you're a villain who has lines they won't cross, that means that you're less evil than the other guy,
* EvilIsEasy: It's easy to do something that will label you as an irrevocably evil person while it's hard to do something that labels you as a good person.
* EvilIsSexy[=/=]UglyHeroGoodLookingVillain : Good people are so unattractive while evil people are hot!
* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: The reason why there's evil in the world is because of people doing what they want. Let's take their freedom away to ensure a better world.
* ExaltedTorturer: Torture is heroic.
* ExecutiveMeddling: If anything goes wrong during production, blame the executives!
** Executives and editors ruin everything. Therefore, because ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' had no editor, Tara Gilesbie is an excellent author.
* FacialProfiling: You can clearly tell someone's race by their features.
* FanDumb: Being a good fan of your favorite type of media means throwing temper tantrums and being overly posessive of your favorite show. Any other fan who tries to correct you for your behavior is childish and stupid.
* FanHater: If someone watches a show you utterly despise, bash them for it.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Don't like something? Pretending it never happened will solve your problems!
* FantasyForbiddingFather: If your parents want you to be somebody that you don't want to be, go along with it. If you don't, then not only you're a rebellious, ungrateful bastard, but you're also setting yourself for failure.
* FatBastard, FatIdiot, & FatSlob: Overweight people deserve the negative treatment because of any or all of these categories.
* FauxActionGirl: An ActionGirl lost to the HeroKiller. What a weak bitch.
** Silly little girl, trying to fight like a man. Everyone knows women are too weak to fight!
* FelonyMisdemeanor: If someone did something that's nowhere near evil, it's still evil anyways. Don't shrug it off, give them shit!
** However, if you do the same things, you deserve nothing but being showered by people's righteous indignation, YouBastard.
* FetishFuel: Viewers are perverts.
* FlameWar and InternetBackdraft: The internet is a very unfriendly and unsafe place.
* FoeYay: That person who hates/competes with you just wants to have sex with you. If you want them off your back, then you need to get on yours.
* ForgivenButNotForgotten: It's okay to forgive others and still give them shit for screwing up. On another spin, if you want to make amends, don't expect others to go easy on you while forgiving you for your bullshit. After all, you still deserve their cold treatment.
** MyFistForgivesYou and RestrainedRevenge: What better way to forgive others than to "get even" with them?
* FragileFlower: If you're highly sensitive, you're a very shitty person who needs to grow a tougher skin, most especially if you're a male!
* TheFreelanceShameSquad: Laughing at people's misfortunes is fun!
* FreudianExcuse: If you have a messed up-childhood or something bad happened to you, never move on! Act like a complete jerkass to people who had nothing to do with it!
* FreudWasRight: Everything is a metaphor for sex. '''''EVERYTHING'''''.
* FridgeLogic: Thinking is a buzz-kill. If you catch yourself thinking while you watch TV, head to the fridge and get another beer.
* FriendlyEnemy: Real enemies are the ones who treat you like buddies and even [[GoKartingWithBowser going out karting together]].
* FriendVersusLover: There's no conflict between your best friend and the love of your life? Bitch, please...
** Men and women only get along if they're having sex with each other. Therefore, the guy's best friend and lover won't get along unless they're seeing each other behind the guy's back.
** Being in a committed relationship means ditching all your friends and focusing exclusively on your girlfriend. That's not possessive or creepy at all!
* TheFundamentalist: It's acceptable to force your beliefs on others.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: If you want to help others who are in a depressed state, being physically abusive towards them works. Always.
* {{GIFT}}, {{Griefer}}, InternetToughGuy, and {{Troll}}: It's fun to act like a douchebag on the internet, especially when no one will know who you are.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Bisexual and willing to let me watch and join in? YOWZA!! Real lesbian who isn't about pleasing men? GTFO you useless dyke!!
** Finding Lesbian intimacy the least bit appealing is vulgar, immoral and insulting... [[DoubleStandard but only if your a straight man]].
** Every woman on Earth should only be attracted to other women for the sake of sexual arousal at the cost of human reproduction and the eventual extinction of the human race.
* GiveGeeksAChance, NerdsAreSexy: Males only please. Females? Pfft! Who wants an intelligent woman? [[InsaneTrollLogic Sissies?]]
** When geeks and nerds talk about women giving them a chance, they really mean ''hot'' women. Anything less than Italian supermodels need not apply.
* GodIsEvil: The universe is run by a vindictive {{Jerkass}}, but you should just accept it because MightMakesRight.
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Women make horrible leaders.
* GodwinsLaw: Any malicious or misleading argument can be lead back to SmallReferencePools of {{Complete Monster}}s, and nothing else in History class is worth retaining.
** Any comparison of an individual to a horrible tyrant or his regime (no matter how legitimate the comparison) is automatically invalid.
*** It's okay to compare real oppression to being disagreed with or corrected.

** Good girls are obedient to society's standards, regardless of their own personal issues.
* GoodIsBoring and EvilIsCool: Good guys are boring while evil people are fun to hang out with!
* GrumpyBear: It's great to be pessimistic while you're living in a SugarBowl.
* HangingJudge: Trying to punish criminals for their misdeeds? You freakin' monster!
* HappinessInSlavery: Slavery is the pursuit of true happiness.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday: If someone repeatedly says they're straight, they're gay. People should just make assumptions instead of accepting their declared preference. [[DoubleStandard Unless they say they're gay]].
* HeadbuttingHeroes: Real heroes don't get along with each other.
* HenpeckedHusband: Fellas (well, ''straight'' fellas), this is all you can look forward to in marriage. ''[[DoubleStandard You]]'' don't get be a nagging pain-in-the-ass, only women do. Or to put it another way...
-->'''Creator/GregGiraldo''': "There are more whipped men on TV than there were on the Film/{{Amistad}}".
** Men, never get married ''ever,'' because your wife will only nag you and cause so much unnecessary stress, so to avoid this problem is to never get married.
* TheHermit: Choosing to be alone is better than people's company.
* HeroismAddict: You want to be a hero, but there is no villains. You should create your own villain for you to fight.
* HeroWithBadPublicity and VillainWithGoodPublicity: Heroes are hated by the citizens while the villains are loved.
* HetIsEw: Heterosexual sex is always gross, and people who like it are weird.
** Sex should purely be for the titulation of YaoiFangirls and {{Yuri Fan}}s. Reproduction? That's crazy talk!
*** {{M|isterSeahorse}}Preg: What are you talking about? With men who can impregnate/be impregnated by other men, who needs women?
* HiddenBadass: If you do not possess [[HeroicBuild huge muscles]], [[BadassMustache epic]] [[BadassBeard facial hair]], a CoolSword and/or a [[RedBaron a cool nickname]]. [[BadassOnPaper You won't be taken as a serious threat.]]
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Child abuse is funny.
** It sucks to grow up in a well-adjusted, normal household where nothing traumatizing yet funny happens.
* HollywoodHomely: You are ugly because the media says so.
** [[UglyBetty America Ferrera]] is a hideous troll beast whose only redeeming quality is that she's a sassy latina.
* HollywoodNerd: Intelligent and attractive people only exist in fiction.
* HollywoodPudgy: If you can't hide behind a traffic sign then '''YouAreFat'''!!!!
* HonorBeforeReason: Always do the right thing even if it doesn't make any sense.
* HonorRelatedAbuse: One of your children has brought shame to your family name! Beat them senseless or kill them to rebuild your honor.
** Sadly, in cultures where this is a thing, that ''is'' the intended Aesop.
* HotGuysAreBastards, BrainlessBeauty, and BeautyIsBad: If you are good-Looking, then you are Bad, Dumb, or Both.
* HotGuyUglyWife: Hey ladies! If you're homely and you find a nice looking man, you don't deserve him.
* {{Housewife}}: If you're one of those and are happy about this, you're actually a StepfordSmiler in heavy denial. No exceptions.
* HoYay: Heterosexual? What the hell is wrong with you?
** Any affection two people of the same gender feel for each other means they want to sleep together.
** DieForOurShip: If there is a woman anywhere near a potential male SlashFic pairing, she has to die, get PutOnABus, or the relationship has to be ended in a fashion that makes her look bad. It is impossible for such a relationship to end in a healthy, mature manner. Women, however, feel no qualms about cheating on their boyfriends with another woman.
** HoYay and LesYay are strictly for straight people of the opposite gender only, why would bisexuals or homosexuals ever want to see something like that?
* HumansAreBastards: No matter what anyone does, and no matter if they're good or bad, the whole world is filled with unlikable, unpleasant, and unrepentant {{Jerkass}}es.
* HumansAreMorons: The same as the above, and in addition, people are so stupid that nobody can ever change this situation.
* HumansAreWhite: White is automatically the default race in any situation or setting.
** If you aren't white in the future, odds are you won't exist.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Never practice what you preach.
* HypocriticalHeartwarming and HypocriticalHumor: Hypocrisy can be endearing and funny.
* HypocrisyNod and LampshadeHanging: The first (and only) step in recovery is pointing out there's a problem.
* HystericalWoman: Women, don't get angry, ''ever,'' because you'll be seen as insane whether your anger is justified or not.
** Heck, only women have problems controlling their emotions, and are the only ones who have anger issues. It's not like hysteria and anger problems are limited to men too!
* IdiotHoudini: Being stupid means you can ruin things for others and not get scolded for it.
* IfICantHaveYou: What a better way to show your undying love to murdering them.
* IfYouTauntHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: If a bully picks on you, you should never get back at them. Otherwise, you are worse than Satan.
** IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Apparently it's awful to dispose of the BigBad who has no regard for human life. Nevermind all of the [[WhatMeasureIsAMook disposible mooks you had to knock out]] before you get to him/her.
* IHaveNoSon: If your child (or children) has morally screwed up, kick them out of the house and never let them back in.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: If you find out that you're unintentionally annoying others and ruining things for them, don't try to correct your behavior. It's the other person's fault for being the victim to your obliviousness and obnoxiousness.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Real logic is for nerds.
* InsufferableGenius: If you're smart, act like a unlikable jackass to other people just to prove your point.
* InvisibleToNormals: If you can see things that no one else can see, then don't worry, you aren't schizophrenic. Indeed, you should rejoice, because this means that you have super-special-awesome magic powers.
* ItsPopularNowItSucks: What do you mean, you don't have to go in the middle of nowhere to find it and now you can have a decent conversation about it? Why would someone want that?
* {{Jerkass}}: In order to make up for your lost self-esteem, act like an obnoxious, arrogant prick.
** JerkassDissonance: Fictional jerks are more likable than real-life jerks.
** JerkassFacade: Act like a jerk to get things done!
** JerkassHasAPoint: If you're a jerk, chances are that you'll be the one who's right about everything.
** JerkJustifications: You have very good reasons for being a jerk.
** JerkSue: Being a jerk will cause others to treat you as the paragon of virtue.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: It's okay to be an asshole as long as you show your nice-interior once in a while just to make sure you don't take your assholery too far.
*** That guy that just called you an idiot is truly the nicest person you'll ever met, probably nicer than just the average NiceGuy.
*** It's okay to be nice only when you ''want'' to be.
** JerkassWoobie: Jerkasses need hugs.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Who cares about the characters, story, or [[AnAesop moral lessons]]? We're here for some epic kick-ass action!
* JustJokingJustification: It's okay to offend or insult people as long as it's a part of a joke. If they take you seriously, then they're are sensitive crybabies who just don't know what a good joke is.
* KafkaKomedy: Making a NiceGuy's life miserable. HilarityEnsues.
* KarmaHoudini: Unlike good deeds you're more likely to get away clean if you cross the MoralEventHorizon.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Seeing an asshole do cruel things to another asshole is awesome.
* KidsAreCruel and TeensAreMonsters: People under the age of 18 are irredeemable little bastards who deserve no respect from sensible and responsible adults.
* KnightTemplar: Strong opinions are '''never''' right.
** TautologicalTemplar: ''Everything'' you do is right.
* LackOfEmpathy: You don't have to show any concern for other people's feelings.
* LadyMacbeth: Married women should let go of their dreams and ambitions.
* LaserGuidedKarma: PayEvilUntoEvil is a nature's law.
** HumiliationConga: Repeatedly.
* LastMinuteHookUp: Want to have a character go through all the trouble of having their love life practically fall apart on them (regardless if they actually deserve it)? Then come up with some new character and claim they went with them, that totally makes your previous actions A-OK. And for characters whom are receiving this treatment, feel lucky if WordOfGod gives your new love interest a name and more than one sentence worth of a character summary.
** If you're dumped or left standing at the alter, you should hook up with the first person of the sex you're attracted to. Entering a long term relationship or marrying someone you've spent little to no time with before is better than being single.
* LifeIsntFair: What better way to rationalize cruel and abusive behavior than to tell everyone that life sucks?
** If something bad happens to people, tell them this.
* LonelyAtTheTop: Don't be a successful person otherwise you will lose your loved ones.
* LonersAreFreaks: If you're a loner, then that's because you're a loser, a weirdo, a sociopath, or a serial killer.
** Also, if you enjoy being alone, you're NOT normal. Having friends is mandatory in society, and you MUST have friends in order to be a normal person, even if you won't enjoy it.
** If you, your friends, and other extroverted people see a loner, treat them like crap because of it. That way, it'll make them realize that they are wrong for living this socially unacceptable lifestyle and they have no other choice but to make friends and socialize.
* LoonyFriendsImproveYourPersonality: Being outright annoying to introverted people will make them open up to you and your other friends.
** However, if you're a loner, you WILL be friends with those egocentric lunatics, whether you like it or not.
* MachoDisasterExpedition: Mother Nature [[ParentalFavoritism favours daughters over sons.]]
* MadeOutToBeAJerkass: No matter how much they ruined your life. Suck it up because [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong venting your frustrations is wrong]].
* MagicFeather: It's okay to lie to your friend or protege if it raises their self-confidence. Especially if it means sending them to their death or possibly humiliating them for life.
** The reason it's ok to risk your friend's death or humiliation is because it always works. Every problem is caused by a lack of confidence.
* MandatoryMotherhood: Because BabiesMakeEverythingBetter, everyone ought to have kids. If you don't want kids, then you're either ChildHater or a selfish prick unwilling to give life just as your parents have done the same to you. So you better get some kids if you want to be a productive member of society.
* {{Mary Sue}}: Women should never have flaws, ever. Because they were born to be perfect.
** MartyStu: Men are perfect. No exceptions.
* MediationBackfire: The best way for people reconcile their differences is letting them beat you senseless for wanting them to reconcile.
* MenActWomenAre, {{Chickification}}: Girls are only special because of their inborn qualities and how they present them; they should make no attempt to improve themselves intellectually or athletically.
** Men should be exclusively subjected to ToughLove and constant scrutiny, [[{{WellDoneSonGuy}} only getting the tiniest bit of validation when they manage to impress people]].
* MenDontCry: Crying is for sisses.
* MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow: White man + Asian girl = Good. No exceptions.
** An Asian girl /White boy pairing exists solely because of race. They couldn't possibly love each other.
** Oh, and of course Asian man + White woman = BAD. No exceptions either.
** The preference of White man/Asian woman over Asian man/White woman in media is entirely based on the alleged size of each partner's genitalia.
* MisaimedFandom: Misinterpreting anything about a work (especially if [[DeathOfTheAuthor you do it on purpose]]) [[HypocriticalHumor is bad]]. The author didn't create it just so you could think for yourself about what it means, you know! ALWAYS obey the WordOfGod, or else you become part of the FanDumb.
** DeathOfTheAuthor: On the other hand, if you are going to think of your own meaning for the book, you must completely throw the WordOfGod out the window and assume that the Author doesn't understand anything about their own work. There is no middle ground between these two tropes.
** If a fan of a work did not understand an aesop correctly, it's the fan's own fault an the fan is an idiot for not agreeing with the message.
* MiseryBuildsCharacter: Being traumatized and abused is good for you while happiness and pleasure is bad.
* MiseryPoker: Never try to voice your frustrations because someone had it worse than you and they won't hesitate to shove it in your face.
* MoralDissonance: If you save people from rape and murder, your raping and murder is automatically justified because hypocrisy is always the right thing to do.
* MoralEventHorizon: If you commit a heinous act, you will never be forgiven, no matter how remorseful you are about doing said act.
* MoralMyopia: How dare they do terrible things to you? Only you should be able do terrible things.
* MuggingTheMonster: If you have ever been accosted in your life, it's your fault for being so pathetic. Actual worthwhile people, good or evil, can handle themselves.
* MyGirlIsASlut: Yes, should be praised for sleeping with a different person every day.
** On the also ridiculous flip side[[note]]depending on your perspective of course[[/note]], MyGirlIsNotASlut, how dare a girl like sex so much she shares said-pleasure with multiple people she doesn't even love?! [[AllMenArePerverts Doesn't she know only men are allowed to like casual sex?!]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: People should be judged by their names.
** ObviouslyEvil: As well as appearance.
* NeverASelfMadeWoman: Women are nothing without their male family members.
* NeverLiveItDown:
** Never make mistakes, EVER. If you're constantly pestered about your past mistakes, it's your fault for making them.
** No matter how much you changed as a person, people will always remember that one time you screwed up and how you were out of character, so don't bother trying to improve yourself because people will only remember your past mistake(s).
* NeverMyFault: If you do wrong, NEVER take responsibility for your actions. Blame it on everyone else.
* NiceGuy: If you fit under this category, you'll be most likely a lame, boring, pathetic ExtremeDoormat.
** NiceGuysFinishLast: ...and women will never go out with you.
* NightmareFuel: Viewers I hope you don't like sleeping after this.
* NobleBigotWithABadge: That cop who routinely harasses ethnic minorities is really just a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and should be indulged in his every misguided whim, no matter how many people he gets killed or wrongfully imprisoned.
** No one will say it outright, but his bigotry is usually justified.
*** And when it often isn't, expect someone to see "the light" anyways and completely forget what he's said because he's saved a kitten.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Don't do good things otherwise it'll come to bite you in the ass.
* NostalgiaFilter: Everything you ever enjoyed watching when you were younger was actually terrible and you didn't know it because you were just a stupid child. If you still enjoy these things, you are an idiot.
** Oh, and reminiscing about your happy non-pop culture related childhood memories is bad too because of all the horrible stuff that was going on around you. Seriously, how dare you spend your childhood being a child! What do you mean you weren't born with the knowledge of the horrors of the world and you actually miss... *gasp* not having to worry so much and having FUN? SHAME! SHAME ON YOU!
** In other words, looking back on ANYTHING that ever made you happy is [[AndThatsTerrible just plain wrong]]!
* NoSympathy: If someone is telling you about their problems, berate them for complaining, making excuses, unwilling to deal with their problems, or that they brought it upon themselves.
** Never tell anyone about your problems, because they won't care a bit.
* NoSympathyForGrudgeholders: How dare you not {{easily forgive|n}} that unrepentant asshole for ruining your life!
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Fictional characters that don't age at the same time as their audiences are an abnormality. Never mind that some story arcs can span an entire month or that a season finale and a season premier might be set within the same day despite being months apart.
* NoTranshumanismAllowed: It is both bad and wrong to try to improve your station in life. Your destiny and psychology are determined by your race, and divinely ordained. Wanting to be something better, or even just other, than what you were born as is fundamentally immoral and anyone who is "uppity" enough to want to challenge this is an utterly reprehensible human being.
** TwoferTokenMinority: Two for one what a deal.
* NoYay and OneTruePairing: Pairings that I don't like are gross, and if you ship them you should feel bad. People should only ship the pairings that ''I'' like!
** NoYay, FoeYay, and RapeIsLove: "[[WebVideo/DeathNoteAbridgedHikariPop Rape is [only] undesirable when ugly people are doing it.]]"
* ObliviousToLove: Apparently you didn't notice a person's kindness as affection this it's your fault.
* OccidentalOtaku: Only Japanese people can be fans of Japanese media. Any fan who isn't must be a creepy basement-dwelling weeaboo [[BoomerangBigot racist against his own country]] because it isn't Japan, and convinced that UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan were the good guys in UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, because it is obviously impossible that anyone can be a fan of a work from a foreign country and not at the same time be convinced that country can do no wrong.
* OffTheTable: If you change your mind about an offer that you previously refused, chances are that you will never receive it, and it's your own damn fault.
* OldShame: It doesn't matter how proud you are of your work, in a few years you'll realize that it's complete crap and want nothing to do with it. Your happiness with something you made won't last.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: If a deity does things that are unquestionably dick-headed, it's only for a good reason. Also, if the deity does whatever he wants with us mortals, they will make things better for us in the end.
* OnlyCoolPeopleMatter: Anyone who is cool has the privileged right to be an outright dick to those who aren't cool.
* OrderedApology: If someone wronged you, you should always demand an apology from them, even if they're not truly sorry.
** You should always apologize even if you don't really mean it.
* PacifistRun: Violence is for the weak.
* ParentalHypocrisy: Not wanting your children to make the same mistakes that you made or reprimanding them for them makes you a compete hypocrite, despite your intentions. [[SarcasmMode How dare you try to keep your children on the right path by getting them to not repeat the mistakes you made!]]
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Doing bad things to bad people is good.
* PeripheryHatedom: You have absolutely no right to criticize anything (or even the tiniest aspect of anything) aimed outside your demographic. [[Webcomic/PennyArcade I'd bet you'd love to, wouldn't you? But you can't. It's not]] '''[[Webcomic/PennyArcade for]]''' [[Webcomic/PennyArcade you]].
* PoliceAreUseless: Want to gain support for your fictional heroic defender of the innocent? You must first utterly discredit everyone who has ever tried to accomplish the same task in real life.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Legitimately stupid attempts at {{Bowdleri|se}}zation justify you saying whatever you want, no matter how offensive or bigoted!
* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: If you aren't a white, straight male, you did nothing noteworthy in any part of history regardless of all evidence to the contrary. All historical narratives must be written from only a white perspective because that is clearly the only one there is. If one white man didn't see it happen, it must not have happened. Therefore any non-white person or woman must be written out of existence or regulated to demeaning roles.
** Everything you've been told about history or fiction you've seen set in history is all a big lie cooked up by a [[StrawCharacter Strawman Political]] of one variety or the other, so don't even bother studying it.
* PositiveDiscrimination: Any minority cannot be truly competent, or genuinely skilled in anything. It must be because the creator wants to avoid looking racist. It' can't be because the minority character actually earned anything or the white character is actually worse at the job.
** It's only okay for characters to be competent if they're a white, straight man.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: I'm the hero, I'm making the rules! Anyone whose nice to me is a swell guy.
* PunishedForSympathy: Being nice and sympathetic to your enemy will give you a swift, well-deserved karma.
* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: You can organize a genocide, torture innocent people to the death, kill children and babies, rob poor people or enslave them, kidnap the homeless to gut them open and steal their organs, as long as you don't commit rape, you're not a bad person at heart and should have a chance at redemption.
** Being responsible for over [[LightNovel/SwordArtOnline 3300 deaths]] no problem, [[AttemptedRape try to rape the protagonist's girlfriend]]. You're worse than the murderer.
* RealWomenDontWearDresses: Weakness and utter incompetence are the quintessence of femininity. Therefore, if you're female, don't behave like a woman, lest your credibility as a competent and useful character be destroyed forever with no chance of coming back. Ever.
* RealWomenHaveCurves: Women having a little shape in their body is more attractive. If you're a woman and don't have any curves, no guy would ever want you!
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Making speeches that put down others and making them feel like shit is so awesome!
* RedemptionDemotion: When you turn to side if good, expect a power decrease.
* RedemptionEqualsAffliction: Turning a new leaf results in suffering.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: If you turn from evil to good, you will die. What makes it better is that you don't have to pay for what you've done.
* ReformedButNotTamed: You can turn to the side of good and still behave like a villain or a douche.
* ReformedButRejected: It doesn't matter if you've had a change of heart, no one will ever forgive you for your wrongs, so get used to the mistrust and hatred that you rightfully deserve!
** If you're a hero, the best way to express righteous indignation is to be an insufferable douchebag to a reformed villain. Never forgive and never forget!
** HeelFaceDoorSlam: And don't even try to change your ways, because you will get killed at that very moment if you do (and rightfully so).
* ReformedRakes: Only ''male'' criminals are redeemable through the love a caring woman. A female criminal will never be reformed to good through the love of a good man because good men would never give her any time of the day.
* RejectedApology: Never accept anyone's apology no matter how sincere it is.
** Holding grudges is cool.
* RetiredMonster: It's perfectly okay to be a CompleteMonster who always lives on the wrong side of the MoralEventHorizon and never shows any remorse-- you can stop any time you want to, and [[KarmaHoudini it's not like you'll get in]] ''[[KarmaHoudini trouble]]'' [[KarmaHoudini for your misdeeds or anything.]]
* RevengeByProxy: The target of your vengeance has a family or friends. They are obviously accomplices who deserve to die, too.
* RightlySelfRighteous: You have every right to be a dick to everyone who are not as moral as you. If they don't like you, it doesn't matter, because they are always wrong and you are always right.
* RightMakesMight[=/=]MightMakesRight: The morality scale is based on how powerful you are.
* RonTheDeathEater: He saved the world, he obviously did it so he could take it over himself.
* [[RuleOfIndex "Rule of-"]] tropes: ViewersAreMorons and will gladly watch anything with [[RuleOfCool explosions]], [[RuleOfSexy boobs]], [[RuleOfFunny farts]], or [[RuleOfCute kittens]].
** The perfect show will have [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot boobs exploding onto farting kittens]].
** RuleOfFun: You shouldn't care about how much sense your game makes. If people get addicted, it's okay.
* ScareEmStraight: The best way to teach kids about good behavior and making the right choices is forcefully pointing out the serious consequences of not following these lessons.
* SchoolBullyingIsHarmless: How dare you feel traumatized by bullies picking on you when it should not be taken seriously?
* TheScrappy: If someone shares a different opinion of a character that the majority of the fandom doesn't like, something is wrong with him or her and that person isn't a good fan for liking said character.
** Characters deserve hatedoms for having the same exact flaws as other characters. If they don't live up to the standards that fans have, they are awful characters.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Anyone who is 60 and over has the right to be a {{Jerkass}}.
* SeriousBusiness: '''Anything''' that isn't that much of a big deal to everyone ''SHOULD'' be taken seriously (like getting the last word).
* SexIsCool: Remember kids, touching waste-disposing organs and possibly even risking your health and your goals in life[[note]]S.T.D.s, S.T.I.s, teenage pregnancy, etc.[[/note]] is the most important thing in life, especially if you're male. If you don't do it, at least before you reach 23, you're a loser. Don't worry, if you're a female virgin, you're much better off than the males. But [[YouNeedToGetLaid You Still Need to Get Laid]] and if you're not interested in playing with waste-disposing organs, then there's probably something wrong with you.
* SexIsEvil: Two consenting adults engaging in a premarital safe sex that is of absolutely no importance in order to receive physical pressure or even express love. FOR SHAME!
* ShipSinking: A creator of a work should always be as cruel as possible when trying to stop fans from shipping non-canon pairings, even if it means humiliating them at a public convention.
** Conversly, any creator must be out to get the shippers. They couldn't possibly just not want character A with character B.
* SlashFic: There is nothing wrong with objectifying people who are attracted to the same gender.
** Enjoy the idea two good-looking homosexuals of the opposite sex having intercourse? Clearly there's something wrong with you. How dare you fantasize about a same-sex couple having sex like couples often do! FOR SHAME!
** Alternatively, making straight people do gay things because it's only the only way straight people can get off is if they watch or think about [[GirlOnGirlIsHot two gay people]] [[GuyOnGuyIsHot having sex]] because [[HetIsEw that's just how boring straight sex is]].
* SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Much like {{rape|IsASpecialKindOfEvil}}, you are a totally evil bastard if you treat people like slaves, but you're okay for murdering thousands, stealing billions of dollars, and smoking weed.
* SourGrapesTropes: It's better for you to never achieve the things that you want.
* StatusQuoIsGod: Things are better off the same as opposed to experiencing positive changes.
* StraightEdgeEvil: Sobriety is evil.
* StraightGay: heterosexuality ''owns'' being non-campy and masculine and this is how gay men should be, so the straight viewers won't have to deal with these people ''flaunting it''.
* SturgeonsLaw: That story, picture, show, movie, or song that you worked hard to make and are very proud of? It probably sucks, and YouSuck for making it. Chances are, your work is not in the 10% that is actually worthwhile, so just give up.
* TakeThatScrappy: It's satisfying to see a fictional character that you hate have something bad happen to them just because you find them annoying.
* TeachHimAnger: Teach nice people to be complete dicks.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Real teamwork revolves around hating each other's guts until the bitter end.
* TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs: [[ViewersAreMorons Viewers really are morons]] who believe everything they see on TV, so if TV shows aren't 100% factually correct and the viewers hurt themselves or others because of it, it's the producers' fault.
* TemptingFate: If you believe that [[FromBadToWorse things will get worse]], then it ''will''. And if you believe that things will get better, it ''won't''.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: If all of your friends are doing drugs, you should too.
** [[BeYourself Being your own person]] is wrong, and you should agree with the views and standards society as a whole, whether you like it or not.
** If someone is doing their own thing, make them feel like shit until they agree to follow you.
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Don't expect people to sympathize you for being evil because people ''accused'' you for being evil. You don't deserve any sympathy anyways.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Don't like the fact that they changed something you liked? STFU! You're just a whiny fanboy.
* ThisLoserIsYou: You suck and we must let you know it.
** It's awesome to create a character to reflect on your disdain for these low-life and pathetic humans.
* TokenMinority and TheSmurfettePrinciple: The best way to show how not racist and not sexist you are is to collect people of other races, genders, and sexualities like they were items in a scavenger hunt!
** Alternatively, anytime a body of work has one minority character, it is clearly there to appear not racist or sexist, not because the character might deserve to be there.
* TooDumbToLive: If you just happened to make a stupid decision or mistake at the wrong time, you deserved to die and your death should be seen as nothing but a big joke.
* ToughLove: Parents, to show how much you truly love your children, treat them like shit in many ways possible (usually beating them).
** In general, treating others like crap will make them better.
* TrueArtIsAngsty: Happiness is for sellouts.
* {{Tsundere}}: The only true way to be a perfect match for the person you you love is to have a rude temperamental streak a mile wide. If any other person seems to be openly kind and caring for the person your pining for then don't worry, [[TrueArtIsAngsty Happy and Friendly relationships]] are doomed to failure anyway.
** Alternatively, if ''you'' are a {{Tsundere}}, you're automatically an irredeemable, abusive bitch. It doesn't matter if you win or not, some fans won't forgive you for not being as sweet or cheerful as the other girl(s).
** The best way to write a female character is to make her annoying as possible, and give her a lot of bad redeeming qualities that overshadow her good ones. Only make her develop into a kinder person when it's too late.
* TurnTheOtherCheek: You're a bad person for not being nice to that asshole who made your life miserable.
* UglyGuyHotWife: If you are an ugly guy and you meet a wonderful girl who is smart, kind, successful, who shares your interests, and is also hot, STAY AWAY because you're awful, she's too good for you. Don't even think of proposing. It's disgusting, a match made in Hell. That marriage could never should never exist in RealLife.
** Alternately, if you're a girl, don't dare to expect a romantic partner to be equally attractive. You're the eye candy, he gets to be funny and personable.
* UnderdogsNeverLose: You're fated to win any contest you enter, no matter how good you are - especially if your opponents are rich and snotty. (If you actually lose, it means that you are a villain and thus are doomed to fail in everything you do, ever.)
** HardWorkHardlyWorks: Practice is for losers. You're better off slacking off until a last minute TrainingMontage, in which you'll become nigh-undefeatable!
* UnfortunateImplications: You should always interpret things in the worst possible way, even when they clearly were not intended in that way.
** Anything you say or write will immediately be taken as offensive.
** Oh, and only straight, cis-sexual, middle-aged, in no way foreign white men whose religious beliefs (or lack thereof) are unknown are allowed to be evil.
** If something can be interpreted in a offensive way then its the only valid interpretation there is of course.
* UnacceptableTargets: These groups aren't' allowed to be targeted anymore and are left alone...despite the fact that they still have to deal with prejudice everyday.
** Unless of course [[NWordPrivileges you're a member]] of one of these groups, or you're an "in your face" comedian who's [[JustJokingJustification "being satirical"]]. SelfDeprecation and satire are a carte blanche to say anything you want!
* TheUnapologetic: Apologies are for sissies. Never apologizing for your mistakes makes you better than those who do.
* UngratefulBastard: No one deserves any gratitude coming from you.
** EntitledBastard: ...But grow a set and help them anyways because you're entitled to do that.
* {{Unishment}}: You did something bad. Now your punishment awaits you! Wait, why are you enjoying your punishment?!
* UnintentionallySympathetic: You weren't supposed feel sorry for TheWoobie.
* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: You were supposed to feel sorry for {{The Sociopath}}ic {{Jerkass}} because of his FreudianExcuse.
* UnprovokedPervertPayback: You took off your clothes knowing he was in the room and it's ''his'' fault.
* ValuesDissonance: If you see evil and speak out or take action against it, you're being ethnocentric.
* VillainSong: You need to be the villain if you want the best song.
* VitriolicBestBuds and WithFriendsLikeThese: You can tell they're truly friends because of their constant bickering, heaping insults, and tendencies to kill each other. If your friends don't do things like that, then they were never your friends in the first place.
** Animosity is the sign of true friendship.
* VocalMinority: If a small group of a people are also more vocal, that's the only part of the group. No exceptions.
* TheWarOnStraw: If you can't think of a good reason why your opponent is wrong, treat them as though they held a completely different position that is, in fact, wrong!
* {{Wangst}}: If you genuinely feel traumatized by something small, make a big fuss about it.
** Lamenting on your troubles makes you a horrible person worthy of scorn.
* WellExcuseMePrincess: Women, if you have a male love interest who is terribly flawed, never hesitate to make him feel like crap about it. Don't worry, he won't break up with you, but if he does, then you don't deserve that loser excuse of a love interest anyways.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: If you really believe that a radical idea is for the best, never try to make it real.
* WeWantOurJerkBack: People are better off jerks than nice people, because nice people are nothing but soft, weak, {{Extreme Doormat}}s while mean people make our lives complete with their BrutalHonesty and [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]].
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Being outraged at some asshole killing dogs or cats for shits and giggles is just wrong and hypocritical because a lot of other animals you don't like as much are also dying/being abused in several ways and you can't do anything to stop it.
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: [[SassyBlackWoman Black women]] are overbearing, unattractive, gold-digging, ball-busting harpies. Thus, Black men prefer White women.
** And in case you're wondering, White man + Black Woman = Not possible. Ever. Doesn't exist.
** Like the White/Asian counterpart, the reason why White man/Black woman doesn't exist in the media is based solely on alleged genital compatibility. And for those who still don't get it, big penis + small vagina = good / small penis + big vagina = bad. Simple as that.
* WhiteMaleLead: The reason most show have such a lead is because White people (White guys in particular) [[ViewersAreMorons are racist, sexist morons]] who just '''''can't''''' relate to anyone who ''isn't'' White and male.
** This trope has nothing to do with the fact that [[MostWritersAreMale Most Writers Are Straight White Males]] who usually ''can't'' write about anybody other than themselves.
* WhoShotJFK: It is impossible for a lone nutcase to kill the President of the United States unassisted, even if he has a sniper rifle and is out of range of the President's bodyguards. [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln Lincoln]], [[UsefulNotes/JamesGarfield Garfield]], and [[UsefulNotes/WilliamMcKinley McKinley]] weren't assassinated; they just laid low for the rest of their lives. Anybody who tells you otherwise is part of the evil cabal to deceive you.
** For the specific theory that the Mafia killed Kennedy: It makes perfect sense that the government knows who killed the President, and will let them get away with this and pin all the blame on somebody else, even though the government was not actually an accomplice to the crime.
** For the theory that it was the CIA: Bosses should do whatever their employees tell them, because their employees are secretly plotting to kill them.
* WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou: If someone abuses you, it's your own fault for making them do so. Also vice versa.
* WideEyedIdealist: You should always be happy and optimistic even if you're living and suffering a cesspool of a world.
** If you are this trope, then you're a naive child who knows nothing of how crapsack the world really is.
* {{Wimpification}}: Becoming the Uke in fan-fic is demeaning, and horrible, and utterly derails your character. Who could possibly like that?
** Straight men: If you have features or show interest in anything less than TestosteronePoisoning, you'll get screwed by a {{Seme}} and be forced to {{Flanderiz|ation}}e yourself into a super-effeminate waif who's a complete doormat.
** Bottoms [[UnfortunateImplications are pussies]].
* WithUsOrAgainstUs and NeutralityBacklash: Not choosing a side (specifically, not choosing the "right" side) is just as bad a siding with the enemy. In fact, not choosing a side makes you worse than any villain committing crimes and you deserve to be severely punished. So here's some friendly advice: choose a side (the good one, specifically)!
* WomenAreWiser: Women are more mature, competent, and morally grounded than men. Accept it.
* XTremeKoolLetterz: [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Poor literacy is KEWL!]]
* {{Yandere}}: This is a desirable trait in your life partner...your ''female'' life partner. Male yanderes are ''always'' more yanyan than deredere.
* YaoiFangirl: Only girls enjoy man-on-man action. Straight and gay yaoi fans don't exist. However, ''everyone'' loves [[YuriFan girl-on-girl]].
* YouBastard: How dare you enjoy this horrible scene we wrote for you to like?!
* YouHaveToHaveJews: Goyim who put this trope on a page, no matter how accurate it may be, are anti-Semitic bigots. No exception.
* {{Zeerust}}: Don't bother writing science fiction. In thirty years, people will laugh at you for making incorrect predictions, and you'll deserve it for making incorrect predictions.
