Trope Overdosed

Feeling bored? Here's a challenge. Find a page on this site that doesn't reference at least one of these works.

Being Trope Overdosed indicates how popular a work is among The Contributors. How long a work has been around has an effect; it's not hard to use a lot of tropes when you're a Long Runner.

Not to be confused with Overdosed Tropes, which are the same but inverted. The opposite of Trope Overdosed is Needs Wiki Magic Love. Listings here are alphabetical.

Trope Saturated — 12000+ wicks

Trope Smothered — 6000-11999 wicks

Trope Overloaded — 3000-5999 wicks

Trope Overdosed — 1500-2999 wicks

This doesn't mean that these works are actually better, just that more tropers watch them and add examples. Or possibly that one really, really crazy troper watches it and adds examples. Or possibly that the show just happens to have a really, really high trope quotient while a show you don't see on here doesn't. Of course, a show with a lot of presence here is likely to gain more fans.
A brief note on methodology. To determine a work's ranking under Trope Overdosed, you can take the "related to" number of the page related to a work that has the most references.

For those who want a perfectly accurate count, though, check out this Python script. Correct usage of it will allow you to determine exactly how many wiks a franchise with really complicated cross references (such as Final Fantasy) has. Note, however, that this page doesn't list exact numbers. We only care about the thousands digit. If you're making a change based on Python data, be sure to mention this in the "edit reason" box.
