%%Commented out statement reminding people not to mess with the quote or page image.%%


Definition of the trope, explaining that the trope occurs when specific lines of dialogue are replaced by general and generic descriptions, giving the appearance of a [[TropeEntryTemplate template]].

Explanation that the trope is often used in parody and {{Deconstruction}} to highlight patterns and clichés.

[[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.

See also [[DeconstructorFleet related tropes]]. Compare [[BlahBlahBlah some]] [[PostModernism similar]] [[ShapedLikeItself tropes]]. Contrast [[TropeEntryTemplate conflicting tropes]].

Mild warning that this trope is [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant not to be confused]] with [[JustForFun/TropeNameInjokes similarly-named non-trope page]] or [[TropeNamer similarly-titled and easily confused page]].

And I can keep it up for as long as it takes\\

If I'm doing my job then its your resolve that breaks''

Line six is the best you've ever heard\\
Seventh line and we're getting near the end\\
Eight line and that's your lot, my friend

* Music/{{deadmau5}}' albums ''Random Album Title'', and possibly [[InvokedTrope invoked]] with ''For Lack of a Better Name'' (the first album released after ''Random Album Title'') and its title track, "Lack of a Better Name". From "This is the Hook":

* Music/BlondeRedhead's official music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpFjXEG4Ug8 "Silently"]] is just a series of text cards describing the events of a music video.

It starts off soft and low\\
And ends up with a kiss\\
Oh where is the song that goes like this?''
* ''[[Theatre/TitleOfShow [title of show]]]'' follows the spirit, if not the letter, of the trope. It's a musical about two guys writing a musical about two guys writing a musical.
* In musicals, an [[TheElevenOClockNumber eleven o'clock song]] is a show-stopping number which comes late in the second act, shortly before the show's finale. ''Theatre/AnklesAweigh'' has one titled "An Eleven O'Clock Song."
* The Ig Nobel Prize ceremonies have the traditional "Welcome, Welcome" and "Goodbye, Goodbye" speeches. Each is two words long.

(''after defeating someone'') That sure was MISSING FILE [[BondOneLiner ONE_LINER]].TXT
* On the third installment of ''VideoGame/{{Wipeout}}'', The Designers Republic decided to go all out with their brand minimalistic approach (think of their cover art for ''[[Music/{{Autechre}} Tri Repetae]]'' but with text), which is why a lot of menu screens contain tons of "explanatory info" despite being fairly simplistic in their design. It has gotten so out of hand that the title screen literally says '''"WIPEOUT THREE TITLE SCREEN"'''.
** And if you wait a bit on it, you will see the obligatory [=DR=] credits, preceeded by '''"WIPEOUT THREE LOGO"''' and '''"TEXT READS LEFT TO RIGHT"'''.
* ''VideoGame/SNKVsCapcomMatchOfTheMillennium'' has "Victory pose!" as a subtitle to Yuri Sakazaki's... duh.
