* 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.
* Example. [[WordCruft Full Stop.]]
* Example. [[WordCruft (And how!)]]
** [[JustifyingEdit But it actually isn't!]]
*** Utterly unironic [[Administrivia/ExampleIndentationInTropeLists sub-bulleted]] condemnation of {{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 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]] "obligatory" reference to ''TropeOverdosed: The Series''.
* [[Administrivia/ZeroContextExample Example without any explanation]].
* Example that has nothing to do with the trope, but is related to the title of the trope; which the original Troper chose to be clever.
* [[Administrivia/ZeroContextExample Example]].
* 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 someone who doesn't bother with 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..."
* 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 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]].


[[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''.
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' example.
** Not to mention another example in that series.

** Subexample that describes how the trope is deliberately [[AvertedTrope averted]] in the RealLife section of the film.

** 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 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.
* 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: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 TheOtherWiki.

* 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.

* 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.

[[folder:Mythology and Folklore]]
* Surprise trope example from mythology, indicating that this trope is OlderThanDirt.

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* Example from ''Comics/CalvinAndHobbes''.

[[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 a Creator/WilliamShakespeare play which prompts TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples to be mentioned.
** Mention of said law. AccidentlyRedlinkedByMispelling.

[[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 inmmediatly scroll down after reading the first line in order to forget about the spoiler. Also, while we're at it, spoiler from ''Dual Destinies''.]]
* 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.
*** No, ''you're'' wrong!
*** NoYou
* Ancient, seemingly incorrect example from ''TropeOverdosed: The Videogame'' that mentions how this trope was used in a feature that was patched out by a later update.
* 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..

[[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.

[[folder:Web Original]]

* [[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 YoutubePoop.
* Example from {{Literature/Worm}}, incorrectly placed in the "Web Original" folder instead of "Literature" where it belongs.

[[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''.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Questionable example from ThisTroper's life.
* A lone RealLife example erroneously declared as TruthInTelevision which we are not making up.
* RealLife example: ThisTroper's personal testimony. (it will later be deleted, restored with a JustifyingEdit, and deleted again)
* 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]].
* 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.
* Scientific example that stems from a common misconception.
