[[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 {{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.

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.
* Example. [[WordCruft (And how!)]]
* Administrivia/ZeroContextExample that tries and fails to hide its lack of context by adding [[WordCruft something like "Full Stop"]] at the end.
** [[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.
* 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 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.
* Example in which the contributer pluralised a WikiWord when the actual link is singular, thereby creating a redlink.
* 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]] {{sinkhole}} [[UpToEleven in]] [[SerialEscalation absolutely]] [[AllOfThem every]] [[Creator/MarkHamill word]].
* Example that someone placed a [[YMMVTropes 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.
* 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.
* "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'.
--> I think this is formatted wrong
* 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 requiring an extremely long explanation.
* Example with a [[spioler:broken spoiler] revealing something you don't want spoiled.
* [[spoiler:Entirely spoilered example.]]
* 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.
-->'''Alice''': The quote.\\
'''Bob''': Yes, this is the quote.\\
The elaboration, 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 "[[NotADeconstruction deconstructed example]]" added just because This Troper wanted to make a parody or an excessively dark and edgy work 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 containing a superfluous redlink because it contains a name like McTroper or an initialism like RPGs which hasn't been formatted correctly.
* 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.


[[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.
** 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 UsefulNotes/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].
* A particularly {{egregious}} example from Episode 12.
* Slightly reworded example that appeared near the top of this folder.
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.
* 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].
* 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.
* 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].


[[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.
* 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 Mind Screw 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 is 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 YouTube upload of ''Popular Anime'', which will probably be deleted within a few days of being added.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Example from a [[NewspaperComics newspaper comic]] incorrectly placed in the ComicBooks section.
* Example from a comic book movie 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.

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

[[folder:Once-Empty Folder That Someone Put a Shoehorned Example into to Give It A Purpose]]
* Shoehorned example that probably isn't even from the right type of media.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* [[{{Squick}} Horrifying example]] from a piece of FanFiction.
* FanFiction example of this trope, supposedly not one written by the editor writing this example.
* 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 very NSFW work that has somehow not been nuked yet.

[[folder:Films Animated]]
* Obligatory Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon 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 Words.
** Example from a Disney sequel.
*** {{Natter}} about the canonicity of Disney sequels.
* Example from an ''Obscure Children's Film'' that was 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: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.]]

* 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 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 PaulRobinson 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: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 UsefulNotes/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.

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

* 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.

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

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

[[folder:Redundant Truth in Television Folder That Wasn't Removed When The Real Life One Got Added]]
* Redundant example that can also be found in the Real Life folder.
* Anecdote from This Troper's personal life, which was put here after being removed from the Real Life folder.
* Controversial example.

[[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.

* 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 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.
* Video game example which contains a [[UrbanLegendOfZelda disputed]] piece of information.
** 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..
* 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 ''TeamFortress2'' or ''{{VideoGame/Portal}}''.
* Example from ''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 JustifyingEdit claiming the trope was {{Justified|trope}} or {{Deconstructed|trope}} in this instance, added because This Troper does not realize that TropesAreNotBad.
* Shoehorned ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' example added as an excuse to reference old memes.

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

[[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.
* 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.
* ''Deleted Webcomic'' may have used this trope, but there's no way to verify it since the author took it down, and it isn'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 ''Long Runner''. 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 have been nuked due to 5P, but for some reason hasn't.

[[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 {{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''.
* 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.

* 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.
* Misplaced Real Life example.

[[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.
** {{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 an article behind a paywall.
* Link to a discredited Urban Legend.
** Natter that links to Snopes instead of just removing the example.
* Example that contains minor factual errors.
** Another example calling the original poster of that example an idiot.
** 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.

* 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]].
* 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.
