"Oh my god! TV Tropes used one of my quotes!"
Linkara, review on Daredevil #306 (once again using one of his quotes)

It's no surprise that the TV Tropes Wiki is one of the most popular websites on the Internet,note  and, equally, it's no surprise that other webpages want to give us a Shout-Out, or that we would want to return the favor by shouting back to the pages that reference us.

Also see TV Tropes In Other Wikis, Weirdest Inbound Link of the Day, One of Us.

Note: Many terms and concepts used on this site have been around since before this site ever even existed, so be sure to check if a reference is definitely about this website before adding it as an example.

    Literature 
  • Black, White and Shades of Mediochre features a character named Xanatos Gambit. No, really. First name Xanatos, second name Gambit. Since the character is a Nerd in Evil's Helmet and the author is One of Us, the reference is certainly intentional.
  • A brief one in book five of Charles Stross's The Laundry Files, The Rhesus Chart. A mathematician who was given a certain line of calculations to visualize wakes up to find himself unusually photosensitive, possessed of superhuman reflexes and mind-warping abilities, invisible in the mirror...and thirsty for blood. Naturally, his reaction after calming down from a rather understandable freakout is to check Wikipedia and TVTropes for information on vampires.

    Tabletop Games 
  • Changeling: The Lost, in the sourcebook Swords at Dawn, details Talecrafting, a way Changelings can tweak fate to force life to follow story conventions, such as the Rule of Three, the Evil Stepmother, or the elderly mentor. Guess what site they reference as a good place to find inspiration?
  • Fate: Core system (link) has the following advice about the setting for a Fate game:
    If you're inventing a setting, you have more work cut out for you. It's beyond the scope of this chapter to tell you how to make a setting; we're assuming you already know how to do that if that's what you're choosing to do. (Besides, we live in a vast world of media. See tvtropes.org if you don't believe us.)
