Darth Wiki / Crappy Trope Definitions

Are you tired of the boring old accurate trope definitions? Never fear! For according to some tropers, we don't need to actually go to the page and read the definition. We can shoehorn any example into any trope, no matter how little sense it makes!

Tropes
  • Deconstruction: A dark, edgy awesome show!
  • Eldritch Abomination: A catch-all term for any big, scary monster!
  • Epic Fail: Want to complain about something you don't like? Just pothole it to this page. Don't care that it violates the In-Universe Examples Only warning on the page.
  • Expy:This character is kind of like this character, and we'll pretend it's not a coincidence. Bonus points if the "copied" character is extremely obscure.
  • Five-Man Band: Any group of people, even if it's not five people, can be shoehorned here. If two of the roles are duplicated, or the characterization is ignored for the role, don't fret. You're doing it right!
  • Reconstruction: Like the opposite of a Deconstruction but even more awesome!
  • Shout-Out: This part of this show is kind of like this other show.

Audience Reactions: After all, audience reactions are subjective, and therefore you can put anything there as you please!
  • Broken Base: A lot of people like something you don't.
  • Complete Monster: Any villain who does anything bad. If your show doesn't have one, it sucks. It can apply to any show, even G-rated shows created for toddlers. After all, a school bully or a jerkass is totally comparable to dictators, serial killers, rapists, and child abusers.
  • Crazy Awesome: A character is awesome. Forget about the crazy part.
  • Critical Research Failure: Obviously, the author is a giant idiot. They couldn't have known the fact and ignored it for a good story. And the fact couldn't have been too obscure to all but experts.
  • It Was His Sled: You know what happened in this movie/show, and therefore, the entire world knows as well!
  • Mary Sue: Any character that is any bit special that you dislike. After all, we only want boring losers as protagonists! Bonus points if the character is female.
  • Moral Event Horizon: The villain does anything bad, from committing mass murder to being a jerk. Bonus points if you use it for real life actions, including petty stuff like your favorite show being cancelled or someone changing something about it.
  • Most Triumphant Example: The show you like has an example of a trope.
  • The Scrappy: You don't need objective criteria like popularity polls or critic's reviews to define it. Just put any character that you dislike.
