Logical Extreme
This is a Trope Trope.

Some tropes have a logical extreme that:
  • Fits neatly within the description of the trope
  • Requires no exaggeration.
  • And usually has at least one example of that extreme (indeed, the Logical Extreme might be quite common).

Note that sometimes a trope can have more than one Logical Extreme that fit the trope in different ways. For example, the Logical Extremes of Reclusive Artist include artists whom no-one knows who they are, artists whom no-one knows where they are, and artists whom no-one knows whether they're alive or dead.

For obvious reasons, this cannot be used on YMMV items.

Compare Deconstructed Trope, where topes are played realistically and sometimies by straining them in the logical extreme. See also Exaggerated Trope, which is the "Illogical Extreme".
