Sorting Algorithm of Tropes
When you have a bucketof tropes to combthrough, it helps to mergethem into a single coherent strand. Luckily for you, the wiki gnome has come down from his tree to count and pigeonhole each of our vast selection of sorting tropes. It wasn't quick or smooth, and he's a shell of his former self, but with patience, he has created a library of sorting algorithms.

Grab a cocktail and enjoy a heap of tropes.

Not to burst your bubble, but scales, sliding or otherwise, are another form of sorting — hence their insertion into this index.

This index is guaranteed to run in O (n log n). Though if you count the recursive clicks, it won't.
