[[ExampleAsAThesis Elaborate introductory example or reasoning behind the trope]], ending in a TitleDrop, [[JustForFun/TropeNameInjokes probably being a circular pothole]]. Reference to AliceAndBob.

Plain, simple, and brief explanation of the trope. Common features of said trope.

Pros, cons, and/or implications of the trope.

Discussion of how the trope relates to {{anime}} or {{manga}}, [[FanMyopia even if it doesn't.]]

[[TheOldestOnesInTheBook How old the trope is]]. How seriously or not the trope is taken nowadays.

Mention of how this trope may sometimes be TruthInTelevision.

Alternatively, if the trope is not TruthInTelevision, an explanation of the horrible things that would happen if it were to be carried out.

Shoehorned reminder that TropesAreTools, so no Administrivia/{{Justifying Edit}}s or {{Square Peg Round Trope}}ry please.

[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=dnbiczai&trope=TropeName Origin]] of Trope Name. References to [[{{Deconstruction}} other, relevant tropes]]. Justification of reason trope was split from older, less well-written trope.

[[folder:General]]
As [[Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample Examples Are Not General]], this folder should probably be removed and have some of its content moved to the trope description and/or the Analysis subpage. It's still here due to a combination of This Troper not knowing about the policy, That Troper not knowing where to move the content, and Yonder Troper just not having the heart to delete it.

* Example at the top by a new troper who doesn't know to always put new examples at the bottom.
* Example at the very top because someone is a {{Parabomber}}...I mean, example at the top because it's the TropeNamer.
* Example at the top because it's the TropeNamer. No other explanation.
* Example near the top that used to be the TropeNamer, but now is just confusing because the trope name was changed and no one bothered to update the example text.
* Administrivia/ZeroContextExample that tries and fails to hide its lack of context by adding [[WordCruft something like "Full Stop"]] at the end.
** [[Administrivia/JustifyingEdit But it actually isn't!]]
*** Utterly unironic [[Administrivia/ExampleIndentationInTropeLists sub-bulleted]] condemnation of Administrivia/{{Justifying Edit}}s. [[HypocriticalHumor Hypocritical]] reminder to Administrivia/RepairDontRespond.
* Example from an obscure work at or near the top only because it was [[EntryPimp a favorite]] of the Trope Launcher.
* Equally obscure example at or near the top because the three-hundredth edit was made by someone who either [[{{Parabombing}} doesn't know the rules]] or feels that this example is way better than the ones below.
* Chronologically-confusing entry that refers to entries further down the page but got moved to the top thanks to someone alphabetizing all the entries but not re-writing them to fit.
* Example that was closer to the top due to an overeager EntryPimp, but was pushed downward by more of the same.
* Example from a classic which allows an editor to declare it one of TheOldestOnesInTheBook.
* Example declared to be the UrExample, even though likely not one.
* [[SquarePegRoundTrope Shoehorned]] example from ''TropeOverdosed: The Series''. Labeled "Obligatory" due to FanMyopia.
* [[Administrivia/ZeroContextExample Example without any explanation]].
** Elaboration that should have been edited to the original example.
* Example that has nothing to do with the trope, but is related to the trope name. Probably added because This Troper either tried to be clever or couldn't be bothered to read the trope page and guessed the meaning based on the trope name alone.
* Example that, due to the fact that there are other examples here, should have two bullet points.
** An extra sentence that really shouldn't have its own bullet point but simply be part of the original entry.
** Another example from the same book that's added in with another bullet, making it seem as if it's part of the original example
** Example from an unrelated work that the editor put here for some reason.
** example from someone who doesn't bother with capitalization, speling n porper grammar
* Example that this editor is shocked, surprised, or astounded hasn't been mentioned yet. You've probably never heard of it.
* Example that begins with "This is not actually an example, but..."
* Example that begins with "I don't know if this is an example" or "I'm not sure if this is an example".
* Examples from four more TropeOverdosed series.
--> '''Name with overly long description of the character's situation:''' quote from the series that is related to the example above, but not the trope.
* Example that uses [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma "it's" when it should be using "its"]], and [[RougeAnglesOfSatin "lead" when it should be using "led"]].
* Example that makes sense only if you interpret the work through a certain pervasive fan theory, but does not mention this fan theory in any way.
* Example that [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhatAnIdiot uses external link markup when a WikiWord would have been quite sufficient]].
* Example made by a contributor that doesn't know how to properly [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Pothole pothole single-word articles]] and uses the external link markup instead.
* Example made by a contributor [[ExPy similar to the above]] that also doesn't understand single-word links and threw in a random capital letter instead.
* Administrivia/ZeroContextExample claiming that a work is "infamous" for using this trope, without saying so much as a single word as to ''how''.
* Example that allegedly "provides" the page image and/or quote, except that the image and/or quote in question has been replaced or removed since the example was added and nobody bothered to update the example.
* [[AllBlueEntry Example]] [[OhCrap with]] [[IfItWasFunnyTheFirstTime an]] [[WordSaladHumor irrelevant]] Administrivia/{{sinkhole}} [[UpToEleven in]] [[SerialEscalation absolutely]] [[AllOfThem every]] [[Creator/MarkHamill word]].
* Example that someone placed a [[YMMV/HomePage YMMV Trope]] in that the contributor thought was an AwesomeMoment, FunnyMoment, HeartwarmingMoment, NightmareFuel, or TearJerker that should probably be fixed up, but might stay with an unsightly mark for some time.
%% * ZeroContextExample.
* Administrivia/ZeroContextExample that needs to be commented out.
%% * ZeroContextExample where someone attempted to add context, but another troper deemed it insufficient and commented it out again instead of expanding on the example.
* "Administrivia/ZeroContextExample in the form of a quote that the contributor assumes everyone knows, especially if it's from something outside the mainstream!"
* [[http://badlink.nonexistent.void Example consisting entirely of a weblink to a site that probably died a week after the example was added.]]
* Example that was mentioned earlier on this page.
* Example with [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules|incorrect formatting]], which is {{IdiotBall}} probably]] ''accidental'. [[note:customnotelabel]]Complete with note markup where labelnote markup should be[[/note]]
'''Alice''':
--> I think this is formatted *wrong*
-> ''Bob'': Alice is [i]probably[/i] right.
* Example that was left unfini
* Example of the trope being averted in a work that has no reason to use it in the first place.
* Example with an extra blank line after it.

** Incorrectly indented example.
* Example that requires an extremely long explanation.
* Example that ''doesn't'' require an extremely long explanation, but has one anyway.
* Example with a [[Spioler:broken spoiler] revealing something you don't want spoiled.
* [[spoiler:Entirely spoilered example.]]
* [[spoiler: An example]] that is [[spoiler: completely spoilered out,]] except for [[spoiler: phrases that make no sense on their own]].
* Exa[[spoiler:mp]]le with such [[spoiler:biza]]rre spoiler tags that you [[spoiler:have to r]]eveal, just because you[[spoiler: ]]can't figure out what[[spoiler:']]s going o[[spoiler:n.]]
* Example that contains a pothole that is broken up by italics, forcing the curious reader to [[SelfDemonstratingArticle check the tooltip before, ]]''[[SelfDemonstratingArticle during]]''[[ShockingSwerve , and after the italics]] to see if they all lead to the same page.
%%* [[supersecretspoiler: Example using deprecated mark-up]] [[strike:in a lame attempt at sarcasm]].
* Example with a quote, followed by some more elaboration or another example.
-->'''Alice''': The quote.\\
'''Bob''': Yes, this is the quote.\\
The elaboration/example, which is still in quote-format because of bad formatting.
* An example that spoilers out the fact that [[spoiler:the trope happens]] or that Alice [[spoiler:dies]].
* Shoehorned "[[Administrivia/NotADeconstruction deconstructed example]]" added just because This Troper wanted to make a parody or an [[DarkerAndEdgier excessively cynical]] story seem more intellectual.
* Example that was somehow
split in half
* Example full of unnecessary details.
* Example that contains the words "also" or "similar to the above/below" despite the referred-to examples being deleted or moved, making it look very weird.
* Example that doesn't bother to elaborate on something, and instead tells you to go to a different TV Tropes page for more details.
* Example that put a [[WikiWord]] in brackets, resulting in a bracketed number instead of the simple link the editor intended.
* Example awkwardly referencing a Administrivia/{{Renamed Trope|s}} because someone was too lazy to reword it.
* Example that is "slightly subverted" because the editor couldn't be bothered to figure out how exactly the trope was being played with.
* Legitimate example that contains an innocent link to a {{Trivia}} entry, and gets stuck with the YMMV scales because of a bug.
* Example that fits better in a SubTrope.
* Example that got partially deleted because the next bullet point down contained natter, and the troper deleting it wasn't careful enou
* An example noted as being "played straight," as opposed to, say, almost everything else on this page.
* Arguably, an [[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotArguable arguable example]].
* Example that, for some reason, italicizes a ''WikiWord'' that isn't a title.
* Example that, for some reason, puts a {{WikiWord}} in curly brackets.
* Example that, for some reason, potholes a [[WikiWord Wiki Word]] to itself.
* Example that, for some reason, sinkholes a [[ShockingSwerve Wiki Word]] to a completely different page.
Example that the contributor forgot to bullet
* Example that was repeatedly deleted and then re-added, with whole paragraph arguments in the reasons for editing.
* An otherwise-unnoteworthy example [[note]]that some bastard decided to add a snark to inside the footnote markup[[/note]].
* An example that is more WildMassGuessing than anything else.
* Example that forgot to mention the title of the work.
* Example of an inversion that doesn't belong here since the inverted trope has its own page.
* Example that doesn't fit at all.
* Example using a McName, McInitialism or otherwise CamelCase word that the editor never noticed, not even after it left a big honking McRedLink in the McExample.
* Example that incorrectly links to the nonexistant plural form of a trope (such as OldShames).
* Example that doesn't get the name of a trope quite right, thus creating a redlink that no one bothered to correct.
* Example that I wrote in the first person, but I didn't use ThisTroper so no one ever noticed it.
* Example with a rude edit reason.
* Example where an easy WiKiWOrd is capitalized wrong.
* Example that either forgot to namespace a link to a work, or gave it the wrong namespace entirely, thus causing an "Inexact title" page to show up when you click on the link.
* Example of this trope being parodied, despite the fact that the trope is already inherently a parody.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: [Series Name] ]]
* Mention of [Series Name], which apparently has enough examples to merit its own folder.
** Example that goes up top because it is the TropeNamer.
--> "Trope Naming quote that can probably also be found on QuotesWiki."
** Another example where the trope is used.
** [Series Name] OWNS this trope! Here's another example as proof.
** Claim that [Series Name] has [Trope Name] in spades, followed by a vague example that borders on being a Administrivia/ZeroContextExample.
** Alice does [Trope Name], and Bob is the worst offender.
** Even this series admits it's kind of an OverusedRunningGag, hence why it was Subverted in Episode Number.
** Example parodying Trope Name's use of this trope that should probably go in a folder other than this one.
* Trope name that doesn't use a bullet point, indicating the prior entries were probably posted before this series gathered so many examples of this it needed its own folder.
* Example that doesn't belong on this page at all, but has avoided deletion for a few months because the editor buried it in the middle of the article.
* TropeName: Seen in [Series Name] Online, [Viral Marketing ARG] or [Tabletop Game] 1e (which is now out of print) but now unable to be viewed because of a failure to KeepCirculatingTheTapes.
* [[{{Donotuse}} Other Trope Name]]: Example which could be confirmed, except the trope it links to was lost in Archive/TheGreatCrash and never reinstated. Since said trope wasn't cut and [Series Name] is obscure and posted long ago, nobody has noticed the Red Link, and if somebody does they can't tell for sure because they don't know what the trope ''was''.
%% * Example that [5P] objected to for pedopandering, so it was cut.
* Two words: [Series Name].
* [Series Name]. [[WordCruft (And how!)]]
* A particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}} example from Episode 12.
* Slightly reworded example that appeared near the top of this folder.
* Mundane example that This Troper insists is not made up, just to make [Series Name] seem crazy.
* Example with an explanation that contradicts the explanation on the page for [Series Name].
* Example that ''finally'' adds a link to the page for [Series Name].
* With [Series Name], it's pretty much given.
* Example ending in the clause "Making this...", which is potholed to [=OlderThan=][[[OlderThanDirt Dirt]] / [[OlderThanFeudalism Feudalism]] / [[OlderThanPrint Print]] / [[OlderThanSteam Steam]] / [[OlderThanRadio Radio]] / [[OlderThanTelevision Television]] / [[OlderThanTheNES TheNES]]], even though [Series Name] isn't actually that old.
* Example posted by a big fan of [Series Name], who describes it as "an interesting use of this trope" or "an odd example" despite being unremarkable.
* An example that references "a [[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotRecent recent]] episode of [Series Name]" without any further elaboration to help identify the episode months or years down the road.
* ShoutOut example that describes something from [Series Name] and {{Pot Hole}}s "Sounds familiar?" to [Another Series] without explaining the connection between the described thing and [Another Series].
* Example that was clearly copy-pasted from [Series Name]'s page.
* Example from [Series Name].
** Example from an unrelated series, but that is similar in that they both employ this trope.
* Random meme that you won't get unless you're familiar with [Series Name].
* Example that brings up major [Series Name] spoilers for no reason.
* '''Overexcited''' example from a ''huge'' fan of [Series Name] who ''really wants to tell you how'' '''''awesome''''' the stuff '''Alice''' did in ''Episode 13'' was by '''[[EmphasizeEverything Emphasizing EVERYTHING]]'''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Advertising]]
* [[Creator/BillyMays BILLY MAYS]] EXAMPLE IN ALL CAPS
* Vague non-example pointing out this trope ''always'' occurs in ads.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Example after example about ''Obscure Anime [[NoExportForYou That Was Never Released Outside Japan]]''.
** One of which is so laden with fanspeak as to be practically in Japanese itself.
* Three and a half pages of {{Anime}} examples that you just scroll right on by because you've never heard of any of them.
* Example from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''
** Yet another example from the TropeOverdosed series that's here because the person who added the above example wasn't really paying attention to what he was doing.
* an AbridgedSeries example listed under {{Anime}} instead of under WebOriginal.
* Example from some redlinked anime called [[{{donotuse}} Nipponisu no Serizu Neemu Disupeto Puresenssu wa Taitoru no Ingurisu]], the title of which you can't make heads or tails of because you don't know Japanese, peppered with mentions of seemingly every single UsefulNotes/AnimeFanspeak trope for added confusion.
** Complaint that you can't make head or tails of the above because you don't know Japanese.
*** Natter about how it's Romaji, not actual Japanese.
*** Natter about capitalization of Romaji.
* Example from some redlinked anime called [[{{donotuse}} Akushuarii Engurisshu Taitoru]], the title of which you can't make heads or tails of because you don't know Japanese, but which you would immediately recognise had the person adding the example deigned to write the title in English, not English-turned-katakana-turned-romanized-katakana.
* [[TropeOverdosed Example from]] ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima!''. May use an exclamation point even though the article has a custom title ''with'' an exclamation point, thus causing it to seem far too eager.
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' example.
** Not to mention another example in that series.
* An example from ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann''.
* Obligatory [[Anime/{{Monster}} Johan]] reference.
** Firm assertion that '''Johan is this trope'''.
* An Example from an anime, which, given [[MindScrew the nature of the series]], makes sense.
* Incomprehensible example from a MindScrew series.
** Wall of Text that attempts to explain the above example, but ends up confusing the reader even more.
* An example from an anime or manga which is illustrated [[http://badlink/030502 here]]. The link leads to a scanlation which has been taken down due to licensing issues, rendering the example useless.
* Example from ''Show You Don't Watch and May Have Never Heard Of'', written [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike so worshipfully]] that you get HypeAversion from a single sentence fragment.
* Example consisting of a link to a copyright-infringing Website/YouTube upload of ''Popular Anime'', which will probably be deleted within a few days of being added.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Lengthy examples from a Creator/DCComics or Creator/MarvelComics franchise.
* Example from a comic book movie adaptation that should probably go under {{Film}} instead.
** Actually, that example goes hand in hand with examples from [[WesternAnimation other]] [[VideoGames media]] based off the comic, so the examples from their own sections are rolled up with the ones from the comic.
* Example from a {{Newspaper Comic|s}} incorrectly placed in the ComicBooks folder, which should instead be in the ComicStrips folder.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Empty Folder That The Page Launcher Just Left There Instead Of Commenting It Out Or Something]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Once-Empty Folder That Someone Put a Shoehorned Example into to Give It A Purpose]]

* Fanfiction example that was accidentally put here instead of the correct folder below.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* [[{{Squick}} Horrifying example]] of [[Rule34 erotic content]] from a piece of FanFiction.
* Example from a very NSFW work that has somehow not yet been nuked from TV Tropes.

* Example from ''FanFic/MyImmortal'' with Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way that mocks the author's RougeAnglesOfSatin.
* Semi-shoehorned example from ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries''.
* A fanfic example that is either RedLinked or not linked at all, and does not bother to tell you what series the fanfic is of.
* Five ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' fanfic examples.
* About a dozen ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' fanfic examples, with most of them being Shinji/Asuka {{Shipping}} fics.
* Example from a fic that doesn't have a page and potholes the title to a relevant trope instead.
* Example where the fic title links to the fic itself, even though it has a TV Tropes page.
* Example from a fic that had its page deleted due to 5P objections.
* Example from a {{Crossover}} SlashFic that you would much rather have not known about.
* Example from an obscure fan fiction that was deleted way back in 2008 and doesn't seem to have ever been archived anywhere.
* Example from a deleted fan fiction that wasn't archived anywhere, and only lives on in someone's {{MST}} of it.
* Example from a CrackFic.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films Animated]]
* Obligatory Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon and/or {{Creator/Pixar}} examples:
** All lumped under their own bullet point.
** Example from ''Disney/Movie'', with a broken link because This Troper forgot that one-word titles aren't {{Wiki Word}}s.
** Example from a Disney sequel.
*** Administrivia/{{Natter}} about the canonicity of Disney sequels.
* Example from ''Obscure Children's Film''. Only added because someone watched ''WebVideo/{{Bobsheaux}}''.
* Stray Disney Animated Canon example that missed the bullet point.
* Example exclusive to a live-action adaptation of a Disney Animated Canon film.
* Legitimate example from ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'', which was removed because This Troper really hates that film.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films Live-Action]]
* Example from the original version of a classic horror film, written in such a way as to instantly differentiate itself from the poorly-received {{remake}} or myriad [[{{Sequelitis}} disappointing sequels]].
* Example that describes how the trope is PlayedStraight and [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''Film/LastActionHero''.
** Subexample that describes how the trope is deliberately [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the RealLife section of the film.
* Example that declares a medium which isn't even a movie "Trope Name: TheMovie".
* Irrelevant example included so the author can complain about ''Film/Alien3'' and ''Film/AlienResurrection''.
** [[FanonDiscontinuity What are you talking about, they never made those movies.]]
* Example from a movie that was obscure until someone on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses/Channel Awesome reviewed it. Replete with a negative quote from said reviewer, even if it is immaterial to the trope.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Jokes]]
* Example that spoilers the punchline of a well-known joke.
* A long joke where the trope is tangentially relevant at best.
* A {{Feghoot}} that may or may not be relevant because nobody wants to read the whole damn thing to check.
* A joke whose punchline is made obvious by its presence on this page.
* A rewording of another joke on this page.
* A quote from a comedian that should go in the Stand-Up Comedy folder.
* Example consisting of something like "a joke about [[StockShticks three guys who walk into a bar]] involves this trope". No further details are given.
* Foreign joke that relies on a {{pun}} that gets LostInTranslation. Requires a full paragraph of explanation, and probably isn't even that funny.
* Offensive joke. May have started an Administrivia/EditWar on this page and/or a FlameWar on the discussion page.
* Short joke that you won't get unless you understand advanced physics or something. [[note]]An explanation three times as long as the joke itself. Will probably either leave you confused or realize the joke wasn't that funny anyway.[[/note]]
* Joke portraying a random politician (who could easily be interchanged with some other politician) as a complete moron.
** Pointless bullet point that only says the joke sometimes features a different politician.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* A bunch of ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' examples.
** Example of LampshadeHanging, [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], and/or {{deconstruction}} from a Discworld book.
** Example of exactly the same gag [[IfItWasFunnyTheFirstTime reused in a different Discworld book]].
** Example from another Discworld book that has more to actually do with this trope than above example does.
** Example from yet another Discworld book that has more to do with one of the previous Discworld examples than it actually does this trope.
* Example from Tropers/PaulRobinson claiming that the trope is represented in his non-existent novel ''Literature/InstrumentOfGod''.
-->Two-kilobyte block of text alleged to be a quote from ''Literature/InstrumentOfGod'' which doesn't really seem to have any particular relevance to the trope, or, really, anything else for that matter.
** Natter in which a troper complains that Paul Robinson should be banned and the example removed! ...which is now outdated because it [[HilariousInHindsight was eventually published]].
* Obligatory ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' example, noting how it was either 'done badly', or 'particularly glaring'.
** Remark that it becomes even worse if you consider the UnfortunateImplications this carries.
* Example in which the contributor wrote "[=TitleOfBook=]" rather than "[=Literature/TitleOfBook=]", thereby either creating a redlink or a link to a similarly titled work in a different medium.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Example from ''RedlinkedShowOfWhichYouHaveHeard''.
* Example from ''[[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]]'', but the title of which prompts you to look it up on Google or Wiki/TheOtherWiki.
* Example from ''[[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]]'', but the fact it has an interesting [[PlayingWithATrope take on the trope]] prompts you to look it up on Google or Wiki/TheOtherWiki.
* Example from ''[[{{pleasedonotuse}} Redlinked Show You Have Never Heard Of]]'' or ''[[{{Series}} Show With An Actual Page Which You Have Never Heard Of]]'' which you investigate in curiosity that turns out to be SoBadItsHorrible, [[DarkerAndEdgier Grimdark]], or worst of all has [[FetishFuel certain]] niche [[BloodyHilarious themes]] that for most people are just plain [[{{Squick}} disturbing]].
* Example involving a ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' sketch.
** Natter referential joke!
*** Obscure joke reference!
** More joke references.
* Obligatory ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' reference.
* Obligatory example from a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' series, correctly placed in the "Live-Action TV" folder where it belongs.
** Ten
** more
** examples
** from
** totally
** different
** ''Franchise/StarTrek''
** works
** most of which should be in a different folder
* Obligatory ''Series/DoctorWho'' example.
** Additional ''Doctor Who'' example which refers to the incarnation by number. The number links to TheNthDoctor even though that has nothing to do with this trope.
* Example from a ''Doctor Who'' spin-off series that was added directly under the ''Doctor Who'' examples but isn't bulleted with them because the person who added it wasn't sure and decided to split the difference.
* "Obligatory" example from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''.
* Example from an episode of a TV show which just aired, even though there is already an entry for the same series up above.
* The same example from an episode of a TV show which just aired, even though there are already an entry for the same seres up above AND the new exmaple already exits if the editor were to move his eyeballs by three inches. [[spoiler: Usually full of spoiler tags and ]]spelling erors because [[spoiler: the editor was trying to be the first person to post the example]].
* Example from a movie adaptation of a TV show that should be in the Film section.
* Example from [[{{Donotuse}} Obscure Show Which Had A Page]] that was lost in Archive/TheGreatCrash which Google and Wikipedia have no listings of, or the Wikipedia listing is under the author's name.
* Strange example from ''Well-Known and Highly-Praised Series'' that is a triple... no, quadruple... [[ZigZaggingTrope wait, no. A quintuple subversion]].
* Example that [[Series/DoctorWho potholes the series name]] so it can't be searched for on the page and will be repeated further down at some point.
* Far-reaching example from This Troper's favorite TropeOverdosed series. It's not really relevant, but you'll leave it because someone else will just add it again.
* Example discussing how ''Show With a Large PeripheryHatedom'' does this trope badly. Probably already on the page, but This Troper really hates this thing.
* Example of this trope being tested on ''Series/MythBusters''.
* Shoehorned example from a GameShow.
* Even more blatantly shoehorned example from an obscure and likely terrible GameShow which only has a TV Tropes page because it was featured on Website/GameShowGarbage.
* A very lengthy example, which goes into detail about the show's history and cast, discussing that the show uses this trope to set up some chain of events or another and that it was contractually obligated for reasons unknown, but never actually coming out and saying just ''what the example actually is'', thus making it a rather odd variation on a Administrivia/ZeroContextExample.
* Example which inexplicably links to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_I_Met_Your_Mother the show's Wikipedia page]] instead of its TV Tropes page.
* Example from a foreign series that nobody outside its origin country cares about.
[[/folder]]

[[AC:Medium header in smallcaps that the editor who folderized the page accidentally missed]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Inevitable music example from an artist you either hate or have never heard of.
* Another Music/RedHousePainters example posted by Tonagamu... and you don't care because you haven't heard of Red House Painters.
** Tonagamu adding on the example even though he probably could have just added it to the main paragraph.
* Rare musical example. Not to be confused with the dozen other musical examples.
* Example from a Music/WeirdAlYankovic song.
* Example that puts an album title in "quotes" instead of ''italicizing'' it.
* Example that ''italicizes'' a song title instead of putting it in "double quotes".
* Example that puts a song title in 'single quotes' instead of "double quotes".

* Example consisting of a line from a song, and nothing else.
* Example from a song that ThisTroper heard on the radio once, but didn't remember the song or artist, and didn't even get the lyrics right so no one can figure out what song it actually is.
* Example from a CountryMusic song, most likely put there by Twentington, the only Troper who actually listens to country music.
* Example from JapanesePopMusic. Probably added by someone who doesn't even know Japanese.
* Example from a song whose lyrics are entirely in GratuitousEnglish. May require a specific interpretation of what the lyricist was trying to say.
* Example from a foreign song.
--> ''Unødvendig sitering av teksten''\\
Unnecessary quotation of the lyrics\\
''Som tar opp mye plass fordi den må oversettes''\\
That takes up a lot of space because it has to be translated
* Example from a video game soundtrack that will be repeated in the Video Games folder.

** Controversial biblical example.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]

* Example from ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''.
** Example of the strip's original trope being played with in ''Webcomic/SquareRootOfMinusGarfield'', which should be listed under the Webcomics tab.

[[folder:Stand-Up Comedy]]
* Example from Creator/GeorgeCarlin.
** Second example that has been [[BeamMeUpScotty frequently misattributed]] to Carlin but is actually from someone else.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Example from ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', with shoehorned reminder of that game's BlackAndGreyMorality and/or WorldHalfEmpty, probably describing the Imperium at length, and ending with "And they're the ''good'' guys."
* Example from ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' with a [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?name=bottomless%20pit link]] to an old version of the card database.
* Example from ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'', described in a perfectly normal manner from the perspective of the real world.
** In-character complaint about security levels, happiness, and treason. Request that the above person report to an execution chamber. Obligatory "Have a Nice Daycycle!"
* Example from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' that would never happen in an actual game but [[{{Munchkin}} is totally possible under rules-as-written]].
* Example from the ''Xyz World Of Nameness'' sub-game ''Noun: The Verbening'' which is written without bias, but the nature of the settings make it clear how much it is {{Squick}} or NightmareFuel.
* Example from the ''Old World Of Nameness'' sub-game ''Verbling: The Nouning'' which is noticeably lighter than every other example and strongly contrasts with the example from the later ''Verbling: The Squick''.
* One example each from the remaining sub-games of the two ''Xyz World of Darkness'' settings. All of them either make you wonder why anyone would play it, or feels normal and cause you to wonder why anyone would play something boringly safe.
* IE[[note]]Incomprehensible Example[[/note]] that's only understandable to [=HPoTH=][[note]]Hardcore Players of This Game[[/note]] due to its unnecessary [=AaAO=] [[note]]AcronymAndAbbreviationOverload[[/note]].
* IE that's ''still'' incomprehensible to non-players after all the [=AaAO=] has been fixed.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Example from a Creator/WilliamShakespeare play which prompts JustForFun/TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples to be mentioned.
** Mention of said law. AccidentlyRedlinkedByMispelling.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Example from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyJusticeForAll''.
** [[spoiler:Spoiler from ''Apollo Justice'' because you should have known better than to read a completely spoilered out sentence yet you read it anyway because it was fairly long and you thought it was going to be about the subject at hand and not an example from a different game that might have been an useless spoiler to mention to begin with, which prompts you to immediately scroll down after reading the first line in order to forget about the spoiler. Also, while we're at it, spoiler from ''Dual Destinies''.]]
** [[spoiler:Spoiler from ''Spirit of Justice''.]]
* An example from ''Franchise/MassEffect''.
** An example of how it was subverted in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' that really should be a different trope altogether, with bad Administrivia/{{Example Indentation|InTropeLists}} on top.
** An example that mentions that the trope is used in both ''Mass Effect'' games which nobody bothered to correct after ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' came out.
* Example from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' using a quote specific to the DS remake with a link to UpdatedRerelease or SuperTitle64Advance.

** You're wrong.

* VideoGame example that asserts that part of the game is hard, for any reason.
** Seven paragraphs of WalkthroughMode to justify a rebuttal of "actually it's super easy if you know what you're doing".
* Example from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', probably involving Sans.
* That example from a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' video game that you've already seen because it was one of the ten million sub-bullets on an example in the "Live-Action TV" folder..
* Example from a ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game
** Tangentially related examples from others game in the series
* Example from ''[[MassivelyMultiplayerOnline Game World Online]]'' which is now dead and cannot be confirmed either way because it was impossible to KeepCirculatingTheTapes.
* Example from a Valve game series that predated Steam. Complaint edited in at a later date that a cliffhanger caused by the example will never be resolved because the game series is in DevelopmentHell.
** Obligatory dated joke about how [[MemeticMutation Valve can't count to three]].
** Obligatory in-joke or meme from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' or ''{{VideoGame/Portal}}''.
* Example from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' which any long-time player knows is still true but is only widely known to said long-time players, making it hard to confirm without pouring over huge amounts of lore.
* Example from ''[[VideoGame The Franchise of Video Game: Latest Installment]]'' which will be irrelevant the second the next one is revealed at E3.
* Example from ''Early Crowdfunded Game Whose "Innovative" Funding Method Made Them A Media Darling''... ''Outdated Star Citizen Lore Predating the Funding Rush''... ''Limbo''... ''Braid''... ''No Time To Explain!''... ''The Binding of Isaac''... ''Fez''... ''Flappy Bird''... ''Crowdfunded Game That Came THIS Close to Release But Was Cancelled Because One of the Devs Illegally Spent the Money On Themselves''... ''Five Nights At Freddys''... ''Undertale''... ''Crowdfunded Game That Came THIS Close to Release But Had It Stolen Out From Under Them By A Concept Artist Leaving and Claiming All the Finished Graphics as Intellectual Property''... ''Newly Crowdfunded Game''... ''Indie Game That Was Popular Last Year''... ''Indie Video Game that is... '''was''' a Surprise Hit'' posted by someone in the huge fanbase.
** Oh, the game is no longer popular, ''Indie Video Game Hit of 2017... 2018... 2019'' has a "better" (read: newer) example.
* Example from a VisualNovel that was placed in the Video Game folder instead, probably because there wasn't a separate folder.
* Example from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' with an obligatory {{Pot Hole}}d reference to either GainaxEnding or MindScrew.
** Angry Administrivia/JustifyingEdit claiming the trope was {{Justified|trope}} or {{Deconstructed|trope}} in this instance, added because This Troper does not realize that TropesAreNotBad.
** [[spoiler: Poorly marked spoiler, which you will assume is for [=MGS2=]'s ending, but in fact spoils [=MGS4=].]]
* Shoehorned ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' example added as an excuse to reference old memes.
* Example describing how ''SnarkBait: The Game'' supposedly uses this trope badly, and attempts to justify Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike by quoting a snarky internet critic.
--> '''AVGN''': Ranting from ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' about this trope, which should instead be placed in the Web Video folder.
* Example from a video game soundtrack that was repeated from the Music folder.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novel]]
* Example from a game (such as ''Franchise/AceAttorney'') where it isn't certain it qualifies as a VisualNovel due to its gameplay ratio.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Example of LampshadeHanging, [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], and/or {{deconstruction}} from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''.
* Example from a "[[Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotRecent recent]]" arc of a webcomic that's been around for 8 years doing five updates a week, so the archive is huge, and since the example is so far up the page it's long ago fallen off the edit page, there's no way to tell when "recent" was.
* Obligatory ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' reference, and a full description of the quadrants.
** Along with a bulleted argument about Vriska.
*** Or just repeated HONK honk HONK's
* Example from a popular WebComic you should read but don't because it is [[ArchivePanic absurdly]] [[LongRunner long]] and you don't want to go on an ArchiveBinge, including several references to how amazing the web comic is.
* Example from a WebComic so obscure that you get the feeling that it was added by the [[TroperWorks comic's author]].
* Webcomic did it [[http://badlink/030502 here]], only the date format has changed, so the link is no good.
** Also [[http://badlink/040506 here]], but when you translate the date to the new format, there's no obvious connection.
** And [[http://badlink/3258693j here]], with an outdated link that does not contain the date.
** And [[http://somearchivesite/badlink/457894 here]], only that the archived site has a broken image where the comic should be.
* Other Webcomic also did it [[http://badlink/7765765 here]], but the link is dead because it was on a Webcomic-Hosting-Made-Easy site from the late-2000s which was capitalizing on the comic-making craze and closed down to avoid the decline, or which was in for the long haul but could no longer stay in the black.
* Unverifiable example from ''Deleted Webcomic That Wasn't Archived Anywhere''.
* Example from ''Semi-Obscure Webcomic With a Page That This Troper Didn't Link to''.
* Example from Webcomic That Didn't Even Get Its Title Italicized.
* Example that claims that the trope has been played straight, {{subverted|trope}}, {{averted|trope}} and {{inverted|trope}} in ''LongRunner''. No further details are given.
* Example from an obscure fetish-based comic with a link to its trope page or website, not pointing out that said comic is fetish-based. This example should probably have been nuked due to 5P, but for some reason hasn't.
* Example linking to a site that used to host the comic, but now redirects to some sketchy ad site that may or may not be full of porn and viruses.
* Example linking to one of the few SFW strips of a very NSFW comic... but there's also other porn on the page that This Troper cheerfully ignored.
* "Recent" example that was old even when it was added.
* Example from a SFW furry comic that hasn't been updated since 2004.
* Example from a NSFW furry comic that hasn't been updated since 2004. Of course, with no mention that the comic is NSFW.
* Example from ''Webcomic/SquareRootOfMinusGarfield''.
** Second example from ''Square Root of Minus Garfield'' that involves the "They haven't stopped making frozen pudding pops, have they?" strip.
* Example from a comic that was abandoned in the middle of a story arc.
* Example that contains an archived link because the creator likes to delete poorly-received comics.
* Example that contains an archived link for seemingly no reason. You get the feeling that This Troper just hates the comic and wanted to deny it your clicks.
* Example from an obscure, crappy comic that only has a (locked) page because someone read its article on the Bad Webcomics Wiki.
* Example from a political comic. Clearly written by a troper who agrees with the comic's author.
* Innocent-sounding example that prompts you to check out the comic, only to discover that it pushes a viewpoint you disagree with while [[TheWarOnStraw strawmanning]] your views.
* Controversial example from ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' that only makes sense after several paragraphs of description on a moment where Christian Weston Chandler got trolled or made a stupid video.
* Example from ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'' that proved to be divisive among the fandom.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Example of mocking the trope in a ''{{Series}}: TheAbridgedSeries''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-qJd-z_ODc Poorly explained pothole to a YouTube video which no longer exists.]]
* Link to a [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner sbemail]] which makes fun of this trope.
* A quote or mention from an AbridgedSeries here, since they seem to be all the rage these days.
* An example in the form of an Wiki/SCPFoundation wiki page, describing an SCP entity that is NightmareFuel but is not labelled as such here. But that's okay, you didn't need to sleep tonight, right?
* Example that is only a broken link to a Geocities site from 1998.
* Example from a WebAnimation/YouTubePoop.
** Example from a YTP by Creator/{{cs188}} that consists solely of a quote from one of his more famous Poops and nothing else.
** Example from another YTP that was taken down by a copyright claim in 2012 and hasn't been reuploaded since.
** Example from a Creator/MichaelRosen-based YTP that includes one of the memes from his poems, even if it was not used in the actual Poop.
--->''*click* Nice.''
* Example from ''{{Literature/Worm}}'', incorrectly placed in the "Web Original" folder instead of "Literature" where it belongs.
* Example from ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' ranting about the trope.
* Another web video example that should go in the Web Video folder.
* Example of {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} discussing the trope, which should go in the Let's Play folder instead.
* Example from ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends''.
* Example from ''Website/{{Neopets}}''.
* Example from ''LetsPlay/{{raocow}}''.
-->'''raocow''': Oh man, look at that totally unnecessary quote of one of those raocow-isms. That is totally, provorbially, a thing. That's pretty great. Hey there, guy.
* Misplaced example from a flash game.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Example from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', with mention of how it happened in a manner that was awesome.
** Another example from ''TropeOverdosed: The Series'', indented, and perhaps directly addressing the last one, but separated from it because some other Troper added an example in between for whatever reason.
** Example from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', with mention of how the ending was an AssPull.
* Example of the time ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' or ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' parodied the trope.
* Example from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' pointing out that they [[TheSimpsonsDidIt did it]], unaware of the actual purpose of [[ItsBeenDone that trope]].
* Obligatory example with ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.
** At least eight further examples plus one from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''.
* Example about a film in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon that should be in the animated film section instead.
* [[Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike Snarky]] example from ''SnarkBait: The Series'' - complete with a PotHole to TakeThat - that would be heavily edited if it weren't for the fact that most tropers agree.
* Obscure example from a series that is aimed at a ''very young'' demographic.
* Example from an extremely obscure late 1990s cartoon that has almost no episodes circulating online, and has a page only because That Troper was a fan of it as a kid.
* Example of this trope being lampshaded OnceAnEpisode in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Other]]
* Visual Novel example added because there was no VN folder, This Troper didn't know if it counted as a video game and decided to play it safe.
* Example from a work that's so obscure no one even knows its medium.
* Controversial Real Life example that was deliberately buried in the middle of the "Other" folder in an attempt to evade deletion.
* A dozen examples that could easily be sorted into the other folders, but are still here because This Troper was too lazy to place them correctly and just dumped them here.
* Misplaced Real Life example.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* A lone RealLife example erroneously declared as TruthInTelevision which we are not making up.
* Questionable example from ThisTroper's life.
** RealLife example: ThisTroper's personal testimony. (it will later be deleted, restored with a Administrivia/JustifyingEdit, and deleted again)
* UrbanLegend that totally happened to this troper's sister's ex-boyfriend's 2nd cousin's niece's math teacher's friend.
** MeToo! Lengthy personal anecdote.
* Link to a discredited UrbanLegend.
** Link to Website/{{Snopes}} debunking the urban legend. Of course, This Troper [[Administrivia/RepairDontRespond placed it in a secondary bullet point instead of just rewording the example]] and moving it to the Urban Legends folder.
* Rather spurious example from RealLife, revealing the editor's ideological bias and bordering on {{Troll}} material.
** Attempt to delete/rectify above, which [[FoxNewsLiberal gets restored multiple times]] as ideological bias matches community preferences.
*** Above example deleted.
* Obligatory example about how evil Disney/[insert corporation here] is.
* Example that uses spoilers to hide [[spoiler:a real-life, well-known death.]]
* Example involving UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, thus invoking GodwinsLaw.
** Example involving Stalin, thus invoking GodwinsLaw Response.
* Controversial example that is bound to be deleted at some point for fear that it might result in InternetBackdraft.
** Counterpoint to controversial example, which might even get the entire RealLife section taken off the page, despite the fact that the rest of the RealLife examples were perfectly uncontroversial.
*** Blatant, badly spelled FlameBait to above, asserting that all who stand on one particular side of the discussion are [[EatsBabies baby-munching]] [[GodwinsLaw Nazis]].
* Historical example that is now found not to be true.
* Example that doesn't actually belong in the TruthInTelevision section.
** Comment indicating that this example should be moved up into the main section, by someone who didn't bother to do that.
** Above example read by unhinged fan, who becomes a DaydreamBeliever.
* Non-example stating that [[CaptainObvious this sometimes occurs in real life]].
* Scientific example that stems from a common misconception.
** Administrivia/{{Natter}} that disputes the accuracy of the above example while being equally wrong.
* Personal anecdote made general by scrubbing the name of the person, place, or thing it happened to.
* Dead link to a newspaper article that may or may not have featured this trope.
* Link to a news article behind a paywall.

** Ridiculously nitpicky reply quoting facts that only someone who works in the field mentioned/lives in the area mentioned/is God would know.
** Ridiculously nitpicky reply that focuses on one inconsistency that can be easily edited out.
* Example with minor historical inaccuracies.
** A scathing explanation of why this is wrong!
*** Condescending blather about how this topic isn't morally or philosophically important enough to deserve accuracy, implying that the above editor is a bad person for correcting someone.
* Example that was only added to make someone This Troper dislikes look bad. Surprisingly, it turns out to be factually correct.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:YMMV]]
* Shoehorned BrokenBase example listing every single minor disagreement within the fanbase.
* Example from something with a genuine BrokenBase, written in a highly diplomatic and value-neutral way, using phrases like "this upset some of the fans". This example probably replaced several paragraphs worth of argument from opposite sides of the schism, possibly [[ThreadMode between the same two people]].
** Follow up post by someone who didn't get the memo, continuing the argument by saying how much that usage of the trope sucked.
*** Rebuttal from someone else who didn't get the memo, responding to the above, which eventually gets the page locked and possibly deleted.
* BrokenBase example that tries to be balanced (or at least ''look'' balanced), but makes it obvious which side This Troper is on.
* Example beginning or ending in "YMMV".
* An ItSucks audience reaction added to push This Troper's opinions, not to accurately report on the general audience's reception of the work.
* Both an EnsembleDarkhorse example and a [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] example listing [[BaseBreakingCharacter the same character.]]
* An Administrivia/InUniverseExamplesOnly trope used as an {{Audience Reaction|s}}.
* Example using a FlameBait trope as a YMMV trope. Probably a MarySue accusation.
* Example that buries a FlameBait trope in the text in an attempt to circumvent the ban on them.
* {{Narm}} example listing something that was intended to be funny.
