->''"''Yor'' is both everything and nothing that movies have ever been. It rips off so many cinematic cliches that it actually passes infinity, curves back around and then comes back to become something wholly original again! It is, in a word, '''transcendent'''.''
-->-- '''Noah [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment "The Spoony One"]] Antwiler''', on ''Film/YorTheHunterFromTheFuture''

While some works love PlayingWithATrope and others are [[ClicheStorm so lacking in self-awareness that they play everything painfully straight]][[note]] say it with us now, ''"[[{{Cliche}} cliii-chééé]]"''[[/note]], there are some gems that take delight in their {{trope}}s and then turn them UpToEleven. This is especially common in [[{{Reconstruction}} Reconstructions]], where all the narrative conventions that made the genre fun are present in full (and generally goofy) force, or parody works, usually of the [[AffectionateParody affectionate variety]], where the whole point is to laugh at as many {{trope}}s as humanly possible.

So, the [[ShellShockedVeteran grizzled veteran]] will [[HeroicSacrifice jump on a grenade]]. The KidHero will find that last bit of HeroicWillpower to fight off TheVirus and vanquish the [[SealedEvilInACan newly freed]] BigBad once and for all. The seven [[MacGuffin Runes of Borax]] will be gathered when the planets are aligned to free the UltimateEvil who will inevitably [[EvilIsNotAToy turn on the evil overlord]].

In short, works that are deemed Troperiffic apologize for absolutely nothing and just have fun with every convention or tried idea and taking it to places never thought possible. MST3KMantra will be sometimes be a requirement to enjoy the work, because without it, Troperiffic works can come off as confusing. Then again, a good Troperiffic work will be fairly obvious about it in some way.

Note that one person's Troperiffic is another person's ClicheStorm, although most Troperiffic works have a certain level of LampshadeHanging, sarcasm, or underlying love for the genre the work exists in. That, and RuleOfCool in copious amounts.

Compare SerialEscalation, ExaggeratedTrope. A work that is verifiably like this can be said to be TropeOverdosed. See also ReferencedBy.TVTropes for ''actual references'' towards the site.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' stands upon three distinct "pillars":
** TransformingMecha: In addition to the requisite transforming {{Space Fighter}}s, every entry (with the exception of ''Anime/MacrossZero'') also has at least one appearance by the franchise's eponymous super dimensional fortresses, which are transforming ''HumongousMecha''.
** SugerWiki/AwesomeMusic: In the original ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', culture shock from music was what ended the war, but in subsequent series, music has actual powers, with ''Anime/Macross7'' really turning ThePowerOfRock UpToEleven.
** A LoveTriangle:
*** ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': A boy in the military chooses between his superior officer and a waitress-turned-singer he rescued.
*** ''Anime/MacrossII'': A news reporter with a pilot's license attracts both an alien girl he rescued and a tsundere ace pilot.
*** ''Anime/MacrossPlus'': The manager for a virtual idol still has the affections of her two former high school best friends turned ace pilots.
*** ''Anime/Macross7'': A half-[[HumanAliens Zentradi]] bassist (the daughter of ''SDF'' ace pilots Max and Milia) can't choose between her mother's protege and the leader/lead-singer of her band.
*** ''Anime/MacrossZero'': A crashed pilot attracts a priestess and her hyperactive younger sister.
*** ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'': A kabuki actor turned pilot develops chemistry with both a young aspiring idol singer he rescued and an already famous idol singer.
*** ''Anime/MacrossDelta'': A drifter turned pilot gets into one with his tsundere wingmate (who's a granddaughter of the aforementioned Max and Milia) and an up-and-coming GirlGroup IdolSinger (who's also an alien defecting from a hostile world).
* ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' has been described alternately as a love letter to the action movie genre, a StealthParody of it, or even both. In any case, it certainly takes many of the genre's tropes UpToEleven.
* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' is a fifty-episode series about a robot war, a MagicalEye, and a comedic high school played for as much drama as goddamn possible, with an ''absurdly'' colorful cast of characters.
* ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' is a Noachian deluge of tropes and clichés from countless genres, from heroic bloodshed to spy films to spaghetti Westerns to blaxploitation to space opera and more. It appropriates them, it subverts them, it plays them straight, it pays loving homage, and all the while it does its own thing.
** "[[BadassBoast And the work which has become a genre unto itself shall be called]]: Anime/CowboyBebop" in retrospect, is basically true.
* There are very, very few tropes that ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' doesn't mock, and pretty much none that get played straight, since each episode is an AffectionateParody of a different movie or television genre.
* So far, at least 4 creations from Creator/StudioGainax count as this:
** ''Anime/CuteyHoney'' takes the campiness of the '70s anime and also packs it with plenty of MindScrew.
** ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'': What you get when [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]] makes a MagicalGirl anime with the weirdness of ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'', the [[HolyShitQuotient HSQ]] of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', and the CrossesTheLineTwice of ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}''... in the art style of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''.
** ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' ''definitely'' counts as this: a KidHero, an IdiotHero, a SmallGirlBigGun, and a [[TheIngenue pure hearted]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses lost princess]], [[ScrewDestiny kick logic and fate to the curb]] and [[BeyondTheImpossible do the impossible]] with HumongousMecha, [[ThisIsADrill Drills]], InTheNameOfTheMoon speeches, and [[HotBlooded craploads of Hot Blood]]. [[ArcWords Yours is the drill that will pierce the heavens]], indeed!
** ''Anime/KillLaKill'': A HotBlooded loner who fights against an established rule to avenge her father along with her [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} wacky]] best friend, and gains a rival who's her complete opposite in every way. And that's just the beginning of the series; as it continues, it pours on ''even more'' tropes on top of the ones already established. Considering [[Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt the]] [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann works]] the directors have previously worked on, this was more than likely intentional.
* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' as well. In fact, ''[=GaoGaiGar=]'' may [[UpToEleven beat TTGL]] in sheer SuperRobot {{Camp}}.
* ''Anime/MazingerZ'' and ''Manga/GetterRobo'': If there's a SuperRobot trope, it's in here. If there's a RealRobot trope, it's probably in here too. And you can expect them all to be turned UpToEleven. And everything associated with HotBlood is in these series. Also dinosaurs.
* There's a reason the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' series is on the TropeOverdosed list up with the long-running series and major franchises, despite being [[TwelveEpisodeAnime twenty-eight episodes long]], with a few scattered mentions of the unanimated novels.
* ''Anime/{{Heroman}}'' seems to be turning out this way, especially if you know Creator/StanLee. The story so far is your generic KidHero-recieves-giant-robot-by-fate storyline. The hero has only one friend, and then there's a cheerleader LoveInterest, two {{Mad Scientist}}s, a HotTeacher, and the TheGovernment who are stereotypically evil and care only about their country's interests. There's more when you throw in a MissingMom and DisappearedDad combo, [[AlwaysChaoticEvil aliens who have no complex motives]] for world conquest, and the hero's [[LongLostRelative sister]] who's made her return to his life after some time away.
* ''LightNovel/{{Kanokon}}'': Sure, other hero/heroine duos get by on ThePowerOfLove, but can they summon ''several story tall fireballs'' of love? Didn't think so.
* ''Manga/KotouraSan'' may seem like a generic RomanticComedy from [[CoversAlwaysLie the previews]]. However, this show has ''many'' HiddenDepths, and it's among the wildest {{Cerebus Rollercoaster}}s known to fiction for playing every trope it can squeeze in for [[PlayedForLaughs Laughs]] [[{{Dramedy}} as much as]] [[PlayedForDrama Drama]] throughout its [[TwelveEpisodeAnime twelve episodes]]. Take the eponymous character, Haruka Kotoura: her profile ''alone'' takes up more than half of the [[Characters/KotouraSan show's character page space]]!
* The producers of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' are big SuperRobot fans, [[MixAndMatch which explains the]] [[TropeOverdosed sheer number of tropes]] that the franchise has utilized.
* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' is full of RPG tropes and cliches in its first season, [[spoiler: which serve to make the twist ending hit even harder]].
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters 31+ characters]], each with some character-type of every form (some with [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot many]]) used throughout {{Anime}} and {{Manga}} history: The Vampire ([[ElegantGothicLolita in victorian-styled clothes]]) [[http://img120.imageshack.us/img120/342/eval.jpg stands atop a gothically designed building in the moonlight]], the [[HiredGuns mercenary]] [[TheGunslinger gunslinger]] uses BizarreAndImprobableBallistics while [[MiserAdvisor charging massive bills for her services]], TheMedic wears a [[Franchise/FinalFantasy red-rimmed white outfit]], the [[ShrinkingViolet extremely shy]] [[HotLibrarian librarian]] has [[MindOverManners privacy-invading]] [[MindProbe mind-reading powers]], and the main heroine has a [[PowerNullifier magic-negating power]] and wields an AntiMagic PaperFanOfDoom-turned-{{BFS}}, and that's just for starters. All set up in a universe that fully embraces FantasyKitchenSink in a [[WackyHomeroom crazy]] [[ElaborateUniversityHigh boarding school]], it plays every trope it explores well with irony, humour, wit and the occasional {{lampshade|Hanging}} (sometimes to the point [[BetterThanABareBulb where no bulb is left bare]]). And VideoGame references. ''Lots'' of VideoGame references.
* ''Anime/OutlawStar'' is generally regarded as one of the most trope-crammed {{Space Western}}s in fiction. As [[WebVideo/JesuOtaku one reviewer]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKKQQZcl4K8 puts it]]:
-->"This show gets a free pass for being the most wish-fulfilling sci-fi title '''''ever'''''. Everything you can love about sci-fi is here: [[WackyRacing space races]], [[ExplosionsInSpace space combat]], [[SingleBiomePlanet diverse planets]], [[AnotherDimension alternate dimensions]], [[StarfishAliens weird aliens]], [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe hot aliens]], [[BizarreAlienBiology aliens of questionable gender]], [[HumongousMecha giant robots]], [[ArtificialHuman bio-androids]], [[{{Cyborg}} human cyborgs]], [[MysteriousWaif cold-sleep beauties]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent shape-shifting]] [[CatGirl beastmen]], [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms laser]]-[[GunsAndGunplayTropes gun fights]], [[SingleStrokeBattle sword fights]], [[GoodOldFisticuffs fistfights]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking paintball]], {{Mad Scientist}}s, [[MagicPoweredPseudoscience Tao magicians]], [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot robotic panthers, kung-fu house cats]], ''and'' a HotSpringsEpisode that is actually ''[[CrowningMomentOfFunny funny]]''.
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' lampshades or lampoons all the old classic shojo manga tropes, to hilarious and sometimes sweet effect.
* ''Anime/PrettyCure'' is a CashCowFranchise with multiple {{Alternate Continuit|y}}ies that each stars a bunch of [[GoodOldFisticuffs Fist-Fighting]] {{Magical Girl Warrior|}}s with various ElementalPowers and many other StockSuperpowers across the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters huge lineup of diverse characters]] [[LongRunners over the years]]. This is especially the case with later iterations since they also play to particular motifs which makes them have more tropes than usual: FlowerMotifs in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'', MusicalThemeNaming in ''Anime/SuitePrettyCure'', FairyTaleMotifs in ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' and ''Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure'' [[note]] moreso the former than the latter [[/note]], and Playing Cards in ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'' who also have the SevenDeadlySins as villans.
* ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar'' is based on a ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Dungeons & Dragons]]'' campaign its creator played. It shows. And yet it's still a classic.
* ''Anime/SailorMoon''. The first anime to (successfully) combine the MagicWarrior[=/=]MagicalGirl Genre with a Sentai or team format. It set the standards for many that came after it and thus has a lot.
* ''Anime/RedPhotonZillion'' features a HotBlooded IdiotHero, his cool and rational TheLancer, and a blue-haired {{Tsundere}} riding {{Cool Bike}}s and employing {{Phlebotinum}}-powered guns to defend a space colony from an AlienInvasion from AlwaysChaoticEvil, FacelessGoons creatures. This series delights in taking plenty tropes that were popular in its time -especially in Tatsunoko and SciFi {{Anime}}- and stirring them in a supremely entertaining blend.
%% * ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}''.
* ''Anime/{{Slayers}}'' skewers all of the classic fantasy {{cliche}}s (with a good healthy dose of pop culture references) for laughs.
* ''Manga/SoulEater'' not only overdoes absolutely everything, but every major [[ShonenDemographic shonen]] hero seems to have an {{Expy}} in this show. Every possible character type can be found in this WorldOfBadass, and MediumAwareness is possessed by all.
* The first episode of ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' (which the creators have put up [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vgQ6WJ8zhQ online]]'') comes out swinging, hitting just about every RPG trope possible (and a few Giant Robot tropes in the process). [[spoiler:Subverted in that it's all in the hero's head]].
* ''Anime/VisionOfEscaflowne'': A Shojo heroine, a shonen hero, giant robots, {{Cat Girl}}s, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent TrappedInAnotherWorld, [[LoveDodecahedron Love Dodecahedrons]], [[spoiler:GenderBender]], and more. The show seems to deliberately throw in as many anime-related tropes as possible. What's more, it refuses to limit itself to ''just'' {{shonen}} or {{shoujo}} tropes, [[MultipleDemographicAppeal so it makes use of both]]. We have extremely complicated Love Dodecahedrons involving [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys copious amounts of]] {{bishonen}} in a war-torn world where GiantMecha duke it out.
* ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' heavily relies on the main character's ability to [[BetterThanABareBulb invariably recognize]] numerous DatingSim tropes and StockCharacter archetypes, which it [[PlayingWithATrope plays with]] in every possible way.
* ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'', a series taking a ridiculous but awesome premise ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin highschool girls fighting with tanks as a sport]]) and playing it straight, goes to town with ''every'' cliche of ''every'' genre it mashes up: war, sports, tournaments, cute girls, school comedy, tragic backstories, slapstick comedy. So what was meant to be for a Niche Genre, became one of the biggest Anime {{Sleeper Hit}}s in recent memory.
* ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' definitely fits here. It embraces every {{Shonen}} trope there is. WideEyedIdealist ChickMagnet protagonist? Check. {{Tsundere}} with GirlishPigtails? Check. AloofDarkHairedGirl who's a MasterSwordsman? Check. LoveableSexManiac who's the protagonist's BromanticFoil? Check. [[BuxomIsBetter Busty]] CoolBigSis? Check. The combination of MoodWhiplash and the unpredictable nature of its characters' fates are what makes the series stand out.

* Steve Byrne goes over ''all'' of the RaceTropes and AcceptableTargets in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UpUeZmLZaA this routine]] from his special ''The Byrne Identity''.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* The extremely detailed world of ''ComicBook/AmericanFlagg'' is a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture CyberPunk CrapsackWorld full of sex, violence, drugs, and references to just about anything and everything.
* Pretty much inevitable in ''ComicBook/AstroCity'', given the vast number of characters, events, locations, and throwaway references used in the series. The series is ''extremely'' casual with troperiffic topics, such as Earth being the [[PortalCrossroadWorld only portal]] [[ExtraDimensionalShortcut between the realms]] of the [[ElementalRivalry warring]] [[AnIcePerson Frigions]] and [[PlayingWithFire Thermeons,]] or using a TimeCrash CrisisCrossover as a background reference. Check out how extensive the main works page (and its various sub-pages) is.
* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' takes tropes from a half-dozen genres, superheroes, SF, fantasy, martial arts flicks, ''Franchise/IndianaJones''-style adventure movies, and mixes them all together.
* ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' seems to flip back and forth between this and {{Subversion}} of the superhero genre.
* ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}''. To borrow from WordOfGod:
-->''It�s an [[ExaggeratedTrope absolute distillation of the superhero genre]]. No plot lines, characters, emotions, nothing whatsoever. It�s people posing in the street for no good reason. It is people getting kicked, and then exploding.'' -- Creator/WarrenEllis
* ''ComicBook/PS238'' takes every last superhero-related trope in existence (and a few unrelated, just for good measure), deconstructs them, reconstructs them, plays them straight (though rarely) and averts them. Next thing you know, they're dancing on the tables, wearing lampshades and chugging FrothyMugsOfWater. And it does it all while taking place in a public school.
%%* ''ComicBook/SinCity'' plays every trope Creator/FrankMiller loves.
* ''ComicBook/TopTen'' takes the ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' concept to an absurdist extreme with a city literally populated by nothing but superheroes, allowing for every trope of the genre to develop and take center stage.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': This story is a fanfic featuring physical gods, inter-galactic empires, spaceships, time travelling, dimensional portals… and it is a continuation of a military thriller fanfic of a Deconstructive SuperRobotGenre show. Oh, and it is also a Romance story. It would be easier and shorter to list tropes that this story does NOT use.
* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime''. The basic construction of this series is like the 2005 format of ''Series/DoctorWho'' -- fitting, since it's a {{Crossover}} of ''Who'', ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'', and WesternAnimation/SherlockHolmesInTheTwentySecondCentury, with a good dose of RealityEnsues. One of the two authors is [[OneOfUs a troper]], and both authors thoroughly enjoy deconstructing and reconstructing various elements out of all three 'verses. The series has two seasons in varied stages of completion, sixteen episodes in ''further'' varied stages, and [[Recap/ChildrenOfTime Recap pages]] that are pretty detailed (the season one finale page alone proves the series' troperiffic status).
* ''FanFic/DecksFallEveryoneDies'' has an awful lot of tropes for a ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries/Film/MoulinRouge'' FilmFic. There does seem to be some {{Reconstruction}} attempted of both works.
* ''FanFic/DoomRepercussionsOfEvil'' gets special mention for sheer density. The page lists 31 tropes at the time of this writing: roughly one trope every seven words. It's even noted that the works page is longer than the story itself.
** ''Fanfic/LoveAtFirstSight'' takes this further by having more tropes than words. It only has four words, two of which are "TheEnd".
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6400777/1/Fanfiction_is_SO_Cliched Fanfiction is SO Cliched]]'', a ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fic which variously [[DeconstructorFleet subverts, lampshades, or deconstructs practically every fanfic cliché in the book.]]
* ''FanFic/{{Fractured}}'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]'']] [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover crossover]] and its sequel ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', are stuffed with tropes. They have pages here ([[CaptainObvious obviously]]), and [[WikiWalk reading]] Wiki/TVTropes helped get the author started on fanfiction in the first place.
* ''FanFic/HuntingTheUnicorn'' is a DeconstructionFic that mixes ''Series/{{Glee}}'' with ''Literature/TheLastUnicorn'', and is naturally on its way to this. It seems to gain several tropes with every update (and is now well past the hundred mark), which is not helped at all by the author being [[OneOfUs a fellow troper]].
* Compare ''any'' fic by [[BigNameFan Killashandra]] to the [[http://www.invisibleplanets.com/kirk_spock/KSCliches.htm Big List of K/S Clichés.]] Yet, she is one of the biggest names in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' {{Slash}} fandom, and her fics aren't half bad, [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome either]][[note]]She's also one of ''the'' {{Trope Codifier}}s for the same, and with good reason -- her K/S fic was the first to be posted on the Internet. Literally. The first K/S fic ever posted online was her fic "Turning Point"[[/note]].
* ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero'' is a ''{{LightNovel/Haruhi|Suzumiya}}'' and Wiki/TVTropes crossover. Yes, a series already on this list has been crossed over with this site.
* From the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fandom, ''Fanfic/LatiasJourney'' and its [[Fanfic/BraveNewWorld sequel]]. It helps that [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife the author is a troper]].
* ''Fanfic/Swing123AndGarfieldodiesCalvinverse'' is ''very'' heavy on the science fiction and action tropes.
* ''Fanfic/WeissReacts'' plays straight, averts, discusses, lampshades, subverts and zigzags as many tropes as it can. It helps that the author is also a troper.
* ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'' is a DeconstructionFic[-/-]WarFic that takes every element of [[Fanfic/TheConversionBureau the original story]] and several of its [[RecursiveFanfiction spin-offs]] (particularly the works of the infamous author Chatoyance) and flips them on their heads, topped off with very highly detailed WorldBuilding and huge amounts of NightmareFuel. The work's page is truly massive (thanks to its several canon side-stories), there are [[ReferenceOverdosed a lot]] of {{Shout Out}}s, and several instances of {{Lampshade Hanging}}s. It's pretty deliberate, as some of the co-authors and side story creators are [[OneOfUs tropers themselves]].
* ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' and its setting are filled to the brim with tropes, especially grimdark ones. The fact that the author himself is an avid troper and fan of the site probably explains it.
* ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'' is a crossover between ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' -a deconstruction of Western-styled super-hero stories- and''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'' -an AffectionateParody of Eastern-styled super-hero stories-. If you’re looking for a super-hero trope, it’ll surely be here.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' takes every {{Wuxia}} trope you can think of and either parodies it, or takes it UpToEleven. Sometimes both.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'''s premise reads like every single TheHerosJourney cliché you can think of: RidiculouslyAverageGuy is told by the wise old man that he's actually prophesied as TheChosenOne and joins up with a spunky ActionGirl love interest to save the world from a hammy villain. And the film makes it all awesome. [[spoiler:The fact that the entire story comes from, or at least is heavily influenced by, the imagination of a child also justifies all of it.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' advertised itself saying "The superhero movie will never be the same again." Granted, it was the same, but only for the first fifteen minutes or so... and then we have some lovely plot twists that kind of turn a parody of Superman into its own engaging story. Whether or not you like this film, you probably have to admit that the people working on this movie REALLY knew their SuperheroTropes well; Megamind's CharacterDevelopment is a great example of that.
* ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' mixes all the best parts of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon in a bowl, adds [[FracturedFairyTale a few twists]] for extra spice, then [[TheBigEasy deep-fries it like a beignet.]]
* ''Anime/RedLine'' is possibly the most troperiffic racing movie ever, rivaled only by Film/SpeedRacer, and with even more insanity and more explosions, and it will explode with its color and art style into your retinas forever.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' is essentially one big deconstruction of [[FracturedFairyTale fairy tales]].
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' is a Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon movie that mixes Creator/{{Disney}} with a load of VideoGame tropes. It was already equipped with a {{Tearjerker}}, CrowningMomentOfFunny, CrowningMomentOfAwesome, and HeartwarmingMoments and character page, which garnered to an impressive length ''before the film even came out''.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes'': I'm sure the next film will be written by scanning this website for any they missed.
* ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' combines this with DoingItForTheArt. Yes, Creator/JamesCameron knows exactly how [[ClicheStorm cliched he's being]], and he doesn't really care.
* ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' takes some of the best tropes from the ComicBook genre and mixes it all together to make it a delightful Superhero Movie.
* ''Film/BehindTheMaskTheRiseOfLeslieVernon'' is your typical supernatural slasher movie... from the point of view of the (not-so-supernatural) villain. Pretty much every slasher trope is called out and deconstructed in the first half, and then demonstrated in the climax.
* The works of Timur Bekmambetov, be it Russian- or Hollywood-era. He is fond of playing common film tropes unflinchingly straight -- all while adding enough [[LampshadeHanging tongue-in-cheek remarks]] and [[ExaggeratedTrope intentionally over-the-top antics]]. As [[CausticCritic Anthony Lane]] put it in ''The New Yorker'',
-->''How, for example, does [Bekmambetov] make a cup of coffee? My best guess, based on the evidence of the film, is that he tosses a handful of beans toward the ceiling, shoots them individually into a fine powder, leaves it hanging in the air, runs downstairs, breaks open a fire hydrant with his head, carefully directs the jet of water through the window of his apartment, sets fire to the building, then stands patiently with his mug amid the blazing ruins to collect the precious percolated drops. Don't even think about a cappuccino.''
* ''Film/BlackDynamite'' finds a way to work in almost every relevant trope, filmmaking convention, and even plotline from 70s Blaxploitation films in the course of creating an AffectionateParody of the genre. According to WordOfGod it was even deeper in that the actors were actually playing the fictional actors making the film.
* ''Film/{{Carriers}}'' is one big collection of post-apocalyptic survivor film tropes from Mad Max to Zombies.
* ''Film/{{Creepshow}}'' is a pastiche of 1950s horror comics, reveling in their predictability and storytelling symmetry.
* ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' is entirely based on Disney gathering up a list of both tropes from its [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon classic animated films]] and from modern romantic comedies, putting them in one movie, and subverting, inverting, and generally [[PlayingWithATrope dicking around with and laughing at all of them]].
* ''Film/TheExpendables''. [[GenreThrowback There's a reason]] [[RuleOfCool why it's currently]] [[RatedMForManly the trope's picture.]]
* ''Film/TheFifthElement''. MysteriousWaif? Check. LargeHam SissyVillain? Check. [[TestosteronePoisoning Ultra-manly man]] ActionHero played by Creator/BruceWillis? Check. RubberForeheadAliens, [[FlyingCar hovercar]] [[ChaseScene chases]], WaifFu, [[EldritchAbomination the Ultimate Evil]], and [[spoiler:the world being saved through ThePowerOfLove]]? Check, check, check, check, ''check.'' This movie is practically cheesy sci-fi incarnate, and it's AWESOME.
* TV channel Five US are currently celebrating '80/90s action film tropes via the medium of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_GmuIHL_EM hair rock full of lampshades]]. Celebrates (at least, just the lyrics) CarFu, whatever-the-heck-the-trope-is-for-indestructable-hair (although they show a HairReboot in the video), DodgeTheBullet (while showing ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy), StuffBlowingUp, GoodOldFisticuffs, OutrunTheFireball, and PreMortemOneLiner within the space of under a minute.
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'': An affectionate [[StarTrek Star Trek]] [[AffectionateParody parody]] that deliberately packs in the tropes, including genre-savviness, trope discussions and a lot of lamp-shade hanging.
* ''Film/GleahanAndTheKnavesOfIndustry:'' In their [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksr2S_4LCPw crowdfunding video,]] the production team called this "a movie full of tropey goodness." It helps that director [[Tropers/AwSamWeston Samuel T Weston]] is a [[TroperWorks Troper]] himself and edited this very entry![[note]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8Kyi0WNg40 Dun-DUN-dun!]][[/note]]
* ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' applies every action, sci-fi and {{Kaiju}} movie cliche imaginable to a sort of "best of" collection of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' and other Creator/{{Toho}} moments in what has been described as the BMovie to end all B-Movies.
* ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}: Planet Terror'' takes those silly {{B Movie}}s from TheSeventies and brings their SoBadItsGood charm all the way to SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome.
* ''Film/HotFuzz'' plays with Buddy Cop movie tropes and clichés, and it's awesome.
* ''Film/KillBill'' is this as well, Creator/QuentinTarantino's love letter to the {{katana|sAreJustBetter}} and basically every other action film trope ever. It draws liberally from [[MixAndMatch old kung fu flicks, old violent exploitation movies and old spaghetti-westerns]].
* ''Film/KungFury'' is a giant parody of the 80's, mostly 80's action movies. And it is glorious.
* ''Film/LastActionHero'' in which the movie universe is a parody of the over-the-top action movies of the time.
* ''Film/LemonadeJoe or Horse Opera'' (Czechoslovakia, 1964) plays with every trope and cliché that is in stock for TheWestern genre. All are {{Exaggerated}} and {{Parodied}}. Though the director and screenwriter Oldrich Lipsky made it clear just how much he loved his pulp magazines, books and old movies. AffectionateParody at its best.
* The more action genre oriented 2016 [[Film/TheMagnificentSeven2016 remake]] of ''[[Film/TheMagnificentSeven1960 The Magnificent Seven]]'' plays some of the tropes of the original, and many tropes tied to the western in general completely straight. But it's done with such love and as a GenreThrowback that it's thoroughly enjoyable.
* ''Film/MeanGirls'' lampshades and parodies most of the biggest high school clique-related tropes that occur in fiction (and [[TruthInTelevision sometimes]] RealLife).
* ''Film/MortalKombatAnnihilation'' was apparently written with a copy of the ''EvilOverlordList'' at hand to make sure that every single point possible (excluding the high tech ones) was prominent in the plot. #1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 20 (in practically every scene), 21, 22, 24, 26, 29, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 39, 53, 55, 56, 58, 64, 73 (the entire point of the movie!), 75 (more so in the first movie, but still here), 78 and 88 are all done in true ''UpToEleven'' style.
** The first ''Film/MortalKombat'' is a spirited competition of "how much cheesy fantasy, kung fu and action movie tropes can we jam into 90 minutes?" It's like if Stephen Sommers made a wuxia.
* Speaking of Stephen Sommers, ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy'' is basically every [[TwoFistedTales pulp adventure]] trope imaginable, neatly compartmentalised. ''Film/VanHelsing'' is the same for Film/HammerHorror, as is ''Film/TheScorpionKing'' for HeroicFantasy.
* ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie''. The story of a HighSchool [[Film/VarsityBlues football jock that does not want to follow in his father's footsteps]], [[Film/ShesAllThat who makes a bet with his friends that he can turn the weird girl into prom queen material]], [[Film/CruelIntentions then enlists his sister to help turn said weird girl into prom queen material in exchange for sleeping with her]]. [[Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou The jock eventually realizes that he is in love with the girl and defies convention to be with her]]. [[Film/AmericanPie Meanwhile, the weird girl's younger brother and his two friends try to lose their virginity by prom.]]
* ''Film/PacificRim'' is this for Kaiju movies, which it homages both shamelessly and lovingly. The action sequences in particular are made for pure entertainment value, some fans even claiming it to be the closest thing to a big ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' film (at least until [[Film/PowerRangers2017 2017 anyway]]).
* ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' both subverts pirate/adventure movie tropes and plays them straight. It even presents unrealistic tropes straight with a realistic twist at the end. For example, Barbossa in the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first film]] shoots Pintel, a reference by the writers to when the bad guy in a movie shows how evil he is by [[YouHaveFailedMe killing one of his own men]], which would lead to him not having a lot of henchmen left. But Barbossa and his men are immortal, so he gets to shoot Pintel with no repercussions! Hooray! [[UndeadAuthor Another happens when the prisoner in the next cell from Jack tells him that he's "heard stories" about the Black Pearl, and how, whenever it attacks a city, it never never leaves any survivors.]] [[LampshadeHanging Jack's response: "No survivors? Then where do the stories come from, I wonder?"]]\\\
The [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMnsChest second film]] even includes a parody/homage to the "hero endures a whipping" scene (a trope of old pirate films, long before it became a subverted form of fanservice in exploitation films), which is played out similar to old pirate movies, only that the captain and the crew that sentence Bloom's character to the punishment are a bunch of half-human monsters, and he only receives a few hits before he is spared.
* ''Film/TheQuickAndTheDead'' puts every [[TheWestern Western]] stock character into a QuickDraw tournament to find The FastestGunInTheWest
* ''Film/TheReturner'' a Japanese science fiction/action film that takes just about every action sci-fi movie you could name and mashes them together.
* ''Film/ShootEmUp'' revels in turning every [[GunsAndGunplayTropes Gunplay Trope]] in existence up to levels even John Woo wouldn't dare to.
* ''Film/SickGirl'' has so many HorrorTropes it's insane.
* ''Film/SpeedRacer'' never even tried to justify any of the weird things in the original, and instead ran with them as fast as the RuleOfCool could possibly allow. If you try to take it at all seriously [[MST3KMantra you're watching the wrong damn movie]].
* ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' pretty much plays every fairytale trope to the hilt. An earlier example of the same is ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'' mixes the Westerns, Samurai movies, and pulp sci-fi Creator/GeorgeLucas loved as a kid. He also studied ''[[TheHerosJourney The Hero With A Thousand Faces]]'' intensely while writing it. It is worth noting that ''Star Wars'' is one of the biggest {{Trope Codifier}}s in history.
%% * ''Film/SuckerPunch''
* ''Film/TropicThunder'' is basically one giant parody of Hollywood and movie-making as a whole.
* ''Film/{{Wanted}}'', {{the film of the|Book}} [[ComicBook/{{Wanted}} comic book]] is an incredibly played-straight TheHerosJourney, or more accurately Anti-Hero's Journey (it also took [[FollowTheLeader some liberal inspiration]] from ''Film/TheMatrix'').
* ''Film/WhipIt'' combines the [[SportsStoryTropes standard sports movie]] with a side of TeenDrama and corresponding ParentalIssues. It's a story that's [[ClicheStorm been told many times before]], but it's [[GushingAboutShowsYouLike done well enough]] that you probably won't mind.
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' makes a deadly drinking game if one is looking for every cartoon or hardboiled detective trope under the sun.
* ''Film/{{Zombieland}}''. It's what happens when a GenreSavvy ActionSurvivor teams up with a CrazyAwesome ActionHero in a ZombieApocalypse.

* David Eddings' ''Literature/{{Belgariad}}''. An intensely derivative work treading over ground walked by fantasy novels since time immemorial and still managing to be an enjoyable read. And his ''[[Literature/TheElenium Elenium]]'' uses a lot of the same tropes as ''Literature/TheBelgariad'', but is often considered by fans to be even better.
* ''Literature/TheFirstDwarfKing'' takes a bunch of age-old fantasy tropes, a bunch of age-old sci-fi tropes, reconstructs them, and shamelessly plays them for all they're worth.
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain'', by Creator/LloydAlexander, are gleefully full of OlderThanPrint tropes from [[Myth/CelticMythology Welsh myth]]. And they're still awesome. Although he does take a few liberties for purposes of fiction -- for instance, converting Arawn to an Evil Dark Lord.
** Alexander was definitely OneOfUs. In his essay "The Grammar of Story," he references several tropes by name, including the MacGuffin, ChekhovsGun, and HoistByHisOwnPetard.
* ''Literature/CodexAlera'' is a HighFantasy series in which a plucky underdog FarmBoy from a backwater of the imperiled kingdom undergoing a succession crisis becomes a [[HeroesPreferSwords sword-wielding]] badass and saves the world, making friends of ancient enemies as he goes. [[spoiler:And he's [[SecretLegacy the heir]] [[RagsToRoyalty to the throne]] and [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking consequently]] has the most powerful magic of... [[PersonOfMassDestruction well, pretty much anyone]].]] Yet the setting is such an unusual twist on MedievalEuropeanFantasy and Tavi is so [[GuileHero brilliant]] and [[CrazyEnoughToWork insane]] that you probably won't even notice the fact that so many elements of the story are old fantasy cliches. You'll be too busy going "[[{{HSQ}} Holy shit]], [[CrazyAwesome that was]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]]''."
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' loves to cram in as many tropes as possible, make them CrazyAwesome, give them the DeconstructorFleet treatment, and then turn them loose, with Harry's terrible jokes providing a backdrop to the resulting insanity.
* The entire ''Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles'' is full of references, subversions, deconstructions, and parodies of various [[FracturedFairyTale fairy tale]] and fantasy tropes, with nearly every character highly GenreSavvy.
* Eric Berne's ''Literature/GamesPeoplePlay'', which was essentially a collection of tropes of human interaction. Berne gave them games memorable titles such as "Now I've got you, you son of a bitch," "Wooden leg," "Yes, but...," and "LetsYouAndHimFight."
* Every Creator/SimonRGreen series ever. The characters are walking tropes, complete with their catchphrase and taglines which they often introduce themselves or others with. Jon Taylor, in particular, often tells people, "It's Jon Taylor and Suzie Shotgun, otherwise known as "Oh God it's her, run!""
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''. Mostly because it was such a lengthy series, but contains just about every type of character you can imagine.
* John Moore's ''Heroics for Beginners'' is a send up of all the swashbuckling and RPG clichés that ever were. In fact, the whole premise of the novel is about a [[TheWisePrince Prince]] who goes off to fight the BigBad to win the hand of the [[RebelliousPrincess Princess]] with the help of "The Handbook of Practical Heroics" (which is essentially a user's guide to GenreSavvy). The Evil Overlord, He Who Must Be Named, makes it ''disturbingly obvious'' that the writer has read the EvilOverlordList. His ventilation ducts ARE too small to crawl through. From the back cover:
-->''When a seemingly crazy, poorly dressed soothsayer tells you not to let a magical talisman fall into the wrong hands, take him or her seriously. DO NOT laugh it off and leave said talisman simply lying around on a side table; you might as well just end the world yourself.'' -- [[http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0441011934/ref=sib_dp_pt#reader-link The Handbook of Practical Heroics]], p. 134
* Any Creator/KimNewman novel. From the ''Literature/AnnoDracula'' series, about an AlternateHistory where Dracula won, to the ''[[Literature/DarkFuture Demon Download]]'' novels, in which Music/ElvisPresley fights {{Eldritch Abomination}}s with a {{Cyborg}} heroine.
* Creator/GarthNix's ''Literature/OldKingdom'' books are rife with tropes but make them all ''work''.
* John Barnes's ''Literature/OneForTheMorningGlory'', where all the characters have MediumAwareness that they are in a FairyTale, so that tropes are invoked, lampshaded, and even relied on -- but not excessively, since they don't know for certain what their roles are.
* Pick a Creator/TerryPratchett novel. Any Terry Pratchett novel. The man seems to have a fetish for tropes, as his novels consist entirely of deconstructing, reconstructing, parodying, averting, subverting, and inverting various tropes of all shapes and sizes. Coupled with his decisively British humor, it makes for consistently entertaining literature.
* Austin Grossman's ''Literature/SoonIWillBeInvincible'' gleefully describes a street-leveling superbattle involving a world-threatening MadScientist with tons of tricks up his sleeves facing down a [[BadassNormal normal human]] with an animal on the chest of his uniform, a lightning-summoning fairy, a bipedal tiger, and a flying invulnerable woman, started when the MadScientist was just trying to [[VillainsOutShopping drink some coffee]]. Almost perfectly invincible [[{{Superman}} flying man with heat-beam eyes]] saves a lovely [[IntrepidReporter reporter]] from [[DistressedDamsel constant kidnapping]] by a villain intimately tied into his past, dies and has a massive funeral, [[spoiler: or rather, fakes it for a very short time]], and always [[SaveTheWorld saves the world]]. The bad guy [[EvilAlwaysTriumphsInTheMiddle defeats the good guys]] and ties them up in {{Death Trap}}s. Famous heroes [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice themselves]] to save the planet from warring aliens, while villains [[JokerImmunity never die]] and [[VillainExitStageLeft always escape]], or go to CardboardPrison. No one finds these events strange or unbelievable. Very shocking in a book where said MadScientist [[LampshadeHanging wonders why]] he doesn't [[CutLexLuthorACheck find a career that'd make money rather than involve him being beaten up by powered heroes]], and the bipedal tiger is known to have back problems.
* ''Literature/{{Stardust}}'' takes every fairytale trope Creator/NeilGaiman could think of and turns it UpToEleven.
* Creator/RudyardKipling's "Literature/TheThreeDecker" is a defense of (not to say exultation in) the Troperific three-volume novel.
* ''Literature/DemonMeatForDinner'' is a UrbanFantasy novel about a farmhand in a TownWithADarkSecret. Plenty of fantasy tropes are played with and commented on throughout.
* Craig Shaw Gardner's Cineverse Cycle is a hilarious homage to and parody of B-movies in general and consequently loaded with every trope you could possibly imagine and then some, from FunWithSubtitles to NonHumanSidekick to ResetButton.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Invoked in the games, where the tributes try to appeal to the Capitol and potential sponsors by playing according to recognizable and interesting archetypes.
* ''Literature/TheUglyBarnacle'' is only 13 words long (15 if you count TheEnd), but it has 37 tropes, plus another 40 under [[YMMV/TheUglyBarnacle YMMV]], [[Characters/TheUglyBarnacle 36 character tropes]], and [[Trivia/TheUglyBarnacle 9 on the Trivia page]], resulting in a lot more tropes than there are words in the story!
* The 1868 French novel/prose poem ''Literature/LesChantsDeMaldoror'' is one of the earliest examples in literature of this, gobbling up as it does every last romantic cliche about Byronic heroes and turning them [[UpToEleven well past eleven]].
* Because it's a 200 page book with far, far more tropes than that to cover, ''Literature/HelpMyStoryHasTheMarySueDisease'' uses three or four tropes per example, relying on the sheer recognisabilty of the tropes to make it's explanations of highly theoretical issues in fiction easy to follow.
* ''Runebinder'' is swamped with typical [=YA=] tropes: TheChosenOne, the LoveTriangle, {{Angst}}, HunterOfMonsters, AfterTheEnd, protagonist superpowers, AerithAndBob, a prophecy, scheming higher-ups manipulating the hero....and it's all 100% intentional. The author noted how heteronormative the genre was while the stories featuring gay protagonists were realistic [[ComingOutStory coming out stories]], so wanted to make a fantasy book for gay teens where they'd be treated the same as their straight peers. And even then, there's enough twists and turns to keep it from being completely predictable.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr'' unashamedly plays with every trope in the book in pursuit of the RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny. Even {{Dead Horse Trope}}s.
* ''Series/TheATeam''. Part of the appeal is knowing, blow by blow, how each episode will play out before you watch it. There will be a scene where B.A. throws a guy over a car. Murdock will act silly and tick B.A. off. Face will fall in love with every remotely attractive woman he sees. It's just fun. [[ATeamFiring And lots of machine guns will get fired, but no one will get shot.]] The BigBad's car will ramp off another vehicle, fly twisting sideways over a ground camera, and crash on its roof. The BigBad and his Mooks will crawl out, uninjured, and surrender. The basic formula stays the same, but the writers switch up the specifics. Take Murdock, for instance: he'll act crazy of course, but ''how?'' Will he decide he's a cab-driving superhero? Pretend he's [[Literature/MobyDick Captain Ahab]]? Act like an artsy filmmaker? Psychoanalyze a bunch of pecans while switching between a German accent and just plain German? ...And yeah, he did all of those things.
* ''Series/BurnNotice'' embraces a wide variety of tropes and proceeds to [[PlayingWithATrope use, subvert, deconstruct, avert, and in general play]] with all of them. Sometimes the show follows a pretty clean formula for the individual stories, and unfortunately that is its main flaw. But in the {{narrat|or}}ion, there are more than a dozen quotes you could use to describe an individual trope that are so specific you know they did it on purpose.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' seems to tend towards this, with many tropes played straight, though often for laughs. It's predictable, but humorously so (often dialed UpToEleven). Someone sets a trip wire to stop Thanksgiving thieves at the Buy More? A bad guy ''will'' trip over it before the end of the episode.
* ''Series/{{Community}}''. Abed is a troper. He invokes tropes, finding the worlds of TV and movies much more interesting. Even beyond Abed, the show has happily thrown itself into parodies and homages to practically every genre of fiction (and ''non-fiction'') on the planet. Never mind that [[http://www.reddit.com/r/community/comments/gvcaj/iama_creator_of_the_tv_show_community_ama/c1qy57g they use this very wiki for research!]]
* ''Series/{{Danger 5}}'' essentially takes every 60s TV, action or pulp fiction cliche it can get its hands on, and plays it dead straight, parodies it, or makes it as absurdly over-the-top as possible.
* ''Series/{{Degrassi}}''. Just ''look'' at its page. It's basically explored every possible angle of the TeenDrama, not to mention being the successor of [[Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh the]] [[Series/DegrassiHigh shows]] that [[TropeMaker created the genre in the first place]], and is now a certified LongRunner.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' is a show about a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot time travelling alien]] that fights other aliens in different times. It has used every science-fiction trope in the books, and even [[TropeNamer named some of them]]. Notable that in its [[LongRunner 50 year run]], it's not only used most sci-fi tropes, but also ones belonging to [[GenreBusting fantasy, historical fiction, horror and comedy]]. And that's not even touching on things like character tropes.
* ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris'' did this with RaceTropes.
* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. Just look at how its ''main page'' had to be subdivided into separate ones. And then it takes the tropes and twists them into funny shapes like so many balloon animals, even [[PlayingWithATrope playing]] with a trope it was the ''TropeCodifier'' for in the episode in which it was codified and named!
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'', in that it relies heavily on plot clichés and a very large amount of character tropes. It's quite predictable, but never completely in the way you'd expect.
* ''Series/HumanTarget'' takes action move tropes and dials them UpToEleven resulting in one of the most awesome action shows on TV.
* ''Series/ICarly'' and its use of various KidCom staples.
* Series/{{Merlin|2008}} is this from season 1 to the beginning of season 3. Then, plots start becoming more complicated and less predictable, and less tropes played straight are involved, as most of the episodes feature twists and tropes merely subverted or deconstructed.
* Think of a movie genre, any movie genre. Think of a trope that applies to it. All odds point to ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' having already mocked it.
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'': Naturally, as it is an AffectionateParody of the middle/high school comedy genre, and, as it runs on RuleOfFunny, everything is taken UpToEleven.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'': Writers from ''Series/{{Lost}}'' and ''Series/{{Buffy|TheVampireSlayer}}'' got their hands on Creator/{{Disney}} fairy tales and stranded them in a small town in Maine straight out of Creator/StephenKing.
* ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' is wonderfully aware of inherent unavoidable silliness of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', healthily [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it, [[{{Reconstruction}} reconstructs]] it, and ''still'' manages to crank it UpToEleven. Want proof? Head on over to the entry for the series at your own peril.
* ''Series/RemoteControl'', the Creator/{{MTV}} TV trivia GameShow that revolved around a [[PromotedFanboy TV junkie-turned-game-show-host]] and parodied just about every game show in existence and then some, naturally played with as many Tropes as it could get its hands on.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', in the episode "Our Man Bashir." It features not only every ''Franchise/StarTrek'' trope, but every Film/JamesBond trope as well.
** Made even more hillarious by a real spy (Garak) accompanying Bashir in the holoprogram and lampshading how ridiculous the Film/JamesBond elements are. Also, Garak's attempts to be a real spy in the simulation don't work because it's specifically designed to be SpyFiction of the TuxedoAndMartini variety.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' invokes ''all'' the Did We Just X Cthulhu tropes.
* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' is a show based in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, so naturally it indexes superhero tropes as well as Adventure tropes, Comedy tropes, Drama tropes etc.

* Music/LadyGaga is far from original in her general style. She admits to having countless influences, such as {{Music/Madonna}}, Music/BritneySpears, Music/DavidBowie and countless others. Her popularity stems from taking all the {{Crazy Awesome}}ness of all her influences, throwing it in a blender, and turning it UpToEleven.
* Music/TaylorSwift's "Bad Blood" music video is chock-full with ActionGirl tropes and references to Sci-Fi and Spy movies, to the point that [[http://io9.com/all-the-crazy-science-fiction-references-in-taylor-swif-1705145757 io9.com published an article enumerating them]].
%%* It's Music/TenaciousD's entire schtick.
* Nearly half the lines in ''Music/UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny'' have been linked to an established trope (see page). Appropriate for the subject matter.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Space 1889}}'' Given that the game is recreating Victorian style science fiction, it contains most of the tropes from those stories. The slogan is: “Role-Playing In A More Civilized Time. Everything Jules Verne should have written. Everything H. G. Wells could have written. Everything A. Conan Doyle thought of, but never published because it was too fantastic.” Since it is set in Victorian Era, it takes many of the tropes associated with that era.
* ''Cleopatra's Caboose'', a [[AffectionateParody tongue-in-cheek]] European-style board game that throws in just about every cliched Euro-game theme or mechanic the designer could think of: trains, ancient Egypt, bidding, building, special powers, resource management, limited actions...
* As implied at the top of the page, ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' campaigns can get like this. Really, the game is designed so that an enterprising DM can run a fantasy campaign based around just about ''any'' model: versatility is the game's greatest strength. The 4th Edition DM's book actually encourages it:
-->''Don't be afraid to steal ideas from books, movies, and other sources for your personal use. The DM's job is to entertain, not to be original.''
* "''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' is a game where one of your main antagonists is Death, Creator of the Underworld. Except there's several of him, probably six or seven. Oh, and he's got 13 dread henchmen, one of whom was probably you at some point in time. Also, Hell has a personal grudge against you this time. Did I mention Magical America regularly trains and sends ninjas out for you personally? Ninjas specially trained in *** -kicking? Which, if they won't work, they keep giant robotic suits of armor on reserve for. Oh, and the Transformers have united under Omicron, and are invading. The Jedi have corrupted Heaven and usurped your rightful place as the Masters of Everything. Your ex-wife just dropped by, and she's a two thousand year old shape-changing man-eating monster now, interested in maybe going on a date next Thursday. Your best friend from your last life and while growing up now seeks to cover all the lands of Middle Earth in darkness, if he can just find this damn ring. And your God has the world's biggest crack habit, and needs some serious rehab." -- '''Darius Solluman'''
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', being the [[LongRunner long running]] FantasyKitchenSink that it is, intentionally invokes just about every SpeculativeFiction trope (yes, that includes most of the [[ScienceFantasy sci-fi ones]]) to create a game in which [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]], [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angels]], [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragons]], [[BigCreepyCrawlies giant insects]], [[OurGeniesAreDifferent djinn]], [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]], [[SupernaturalMartialArts kung-fu monks]], {{Magitek}} [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgs]], [[OurLichesAreDifferent liches]] and NighInvulnerable [[ThePaladin paladins]] may well share space in the same deck.
* ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', a fan-made line of the ''TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness'', is filled to the brim with science-fiction tropes and treats the AppliedPhlebotinum tropes as blueprints.
* ''TabletopGame/GraveRobbersFromOuterSpace'', a card game about making low-budget genre movies that both mocks and glorifies the numerous cliches and archetypes of a variety of genres.
* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}} Cliffhangers'': The GM is urged to avoid subtlety and use every pulp fiction cliche he can think of because a game based on pulp fiction ''should'' have cliches.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Monsterpocalypse}}'' uses every trope used in a {{Kaiju}} setting.
* ''Strike Legion'' is so derivative it digs right out the bottom of ClicheStorm and becomes this. [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=196770 A MST]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' takes every sci-fi trope and cliché ''imaginable'', [[DarkerAndEdgier paints it black]], [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs pumps it full of a cocktail of every drug known to man]], [[IncendiaryExponent sets it on fire]], [[RuleOfCool sends it off into space screaming WAAAGH! and waving a chainsaw sword]]. As an example, [[SuperSoldier Space Marines]] are recruited with an extreme form of TheSpartanWay which only one in every hundred aspirants survive, [[TrainingFromHell given years of insanely dangerous training]] and [[ChurchMilitant religious indoctrination to turn them into utterly fearless, pitiless fanatics.]] They're equipped with [[AncestralWeapon gigantic millenia-old suits of]] PoweredArmour and spend their days fighting [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot unkillable zombie robots]], [[HornyDevils gigantic flaming-head sex demons and the like.]] This is what ''one faction'' does with ''one trope'' as background for its ''basic troops choice''. And they have {{Chains|awGood}}words.
** For an example of the sheer number of tropes 40k uses, take a WikiWalk through the various DarkerAndEdgier tropes, and [[DrinkingGame/TVTropes take a shot]] for every quotes page that has a ''Warhammer 40,000'' section. You will be totally smashed by the time you're done.
* What ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' does with sci-fi, ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' does with fantasy. Okay, maybe it's not ''quite'' as whacked-out, but it's still a pretty awesome mish-mash of every fantasy trope you could care to name. One example is TheEmpire: A FantasyCounterpartCulture of the UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire led by a [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure particularly]] [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking awesome]] [[TheWisePrince Emperor]] (who runs around with either the [[HeroesPreferSwords Reikland]] [[CoolSword Runefang]] or [[FounderOfTheKingdom Sigmar's]] [[AncestralWeapon own]] [[DropTheHammer warhammer]], and [[DragonRider rides]] either a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] or a [[MixAndMatchCritter griffin]]).
* ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' exists in a similar genre to Space 1889 and so has a LOT of the same tropes, although how it is all put together makes it feel very different, being early 20th century pulp sci-fi as opposed to Vernian sci-fi and has a distinctly different attitude to how the aliens are portrayed. Being set in 1938, it is also full of ThoseWackyNazis, DirtyCommies and RaygunGothic tropes.

* In ''A Day in Hollywood / A Night in the Ukraine'', the song "I Love a Film Cliche" is a LongList of [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin film cliche]] quotes and references, practically all of which could be mapped directly to trope pages.
* ''Theatre/TheCompleteWorksOfWilliamShakespeareAbridged'' is an UrExample of TheAbridgedSeries, and is the TropeCodifier for theatrical productions. It also uses just about every [[AbridgedSeriesTropes Abridged Series Trope]] despite [[OlderThanTheyThink predating the genre by 19 years]].

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* The former ''Ride/{{Disaster}}'' attraction at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Florida]] was altogether a huge tongue-in-cheek parody of the many cliches found in disaster/action movies, with countless of tropes being lampshaded.

* Franchise/{{Lego}}'s ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}''- a DarkerAndEdgier, MerchandiseDriven ScienceFantasy series powered by RuleOfCool. It starts out with a bunch of {{cyborg}} {{Hobbits}} living in [[ElementalNation Elemental Tribes]] on a SchizoTech PatchworkMap Island being terrorized by a mysterious BigBad. Then a [[FiveManBand Six Man Band]] of heroes with [[MaskOfPower magic masks]] and ElementalPowers ([[PersonalityPowers that conveniently match their personalities]]) comes along to fight the [[MonsterOfTheWeek various beasties he sends after them]], before confronting the BigBad himself and learning about ThePowerOfFriendship. The series then starts deconstructing a lot of the tropes- it turns out [[AllMythsAreTrue the myths may not be entirely true]], that the SchizoTech is left over from an [[ApocalypseHow apocalypse]] [[LaserGuidedAmnesia no-one remembers]], and the impossible PatchworkMap island [[ThatsNoMoon may not be an island after all...]]
** In fact, if a trope page has a "Toy" subcategory, odds are it's because of this particular franchise. [[SelfDemonstratingArticle Often, Bionicle is the only example in its category.]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/AtelierIrisEternalMana'' is this to a fair number of people. [[WingedHumanoid A girl with wings]]! A {{catgirl}}! A hero on a vague quest for knowledge and reputation! A wisecracking older dude who's along mostly just because! Ancient evil! Recent evil! {{Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain}}s! And yet, the game plays with the cliches just enough (such as making TheHero the ''WhiteMage'' of the party, and making him the [[ButtMonkey butt of every joke imaginable partially for it]] yet ''still'' making him seem legitimately badass and awesome) that the game just ''clicks'' for a lot of people.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' omnivorously gobbles up every action game trope, cliche, and visual flourish of the past twenty-five years and synthesises them into something [[CrazyAwesome uniquely mad]].
* Any Creator/BioWare game in existence, the more power over the world they have, the more troperrific their games are.
** ''Franchise/DragonAge'' is this on many levels -- and anyone who's tried to read the [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Codex]] knows it has many, many levels.
** The number of tropes ''VideoGame/{{Mass Effect|1}}'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' use is surprising and not limited to classic SF ones. The authors are especially fond of subverting and double subverting tropes. In fact, the pages have repeatedly had to be split to prevent them from crashing the wiki; counting just the main tropes pages for the individual games and series as a whole, there are fourteen pages. This does ''not'' include subpages (such as YMMV and Character pages) or the ExpandedUniverse content.
** The [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]] trope list '''alone''' got so long it ended up on its ''own page''--remember, this is ''one'' character.
** The ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' page actually got so large it had to be split, ''before'' the game had even been released.
*** And then the ''Citadel DLC'' took it UpToEleven.
* ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. ''Big time''. It's stuffed with all kinds of anime and fighting game tropes and stereotypes, many of them {{Exp|y}}ies and {{Shout Out}}s to other Japanese media, and averts, subverts, inverts, double subverts, deconstructs, reconstructs, and generally toys around with these tropes and stereotypes.
* Anything Creator/BlizzardEntertainment ever made. Nothing in their game catalog is [[ClicheStorm even remotely original]], but they have a knack for taking every single HighFantasy, HeroicFantasy and SpaceOpera cliché in existence, throw them into a blender and then [[ScheduleSlip slooooowly]] cook the resulting stew into something so [[ShownTheirWork polished]] and superbly entertaining it somehow becomes [[RuleOfCool fresh and delicious]] again.
* ''VideoGame/BlueDragon'': The hot-blooded {{Determinator}} hero, the feisty nonhuman, the hero's best friend with strong magical powers, the love interest BlackMagicianGirl, and the older woman who turns out to be TheMole join forces to defeat the evil BigBad with an excuse and the GreaterScopeVillain, a superweapon who ended a war 1000 years ago, with their powers of questionable origin. Not only was this an attempt from the same makers to bring back the cliche charm of VideoGame/ChronoTrigger (which it, for the most part, succeeded at), it put a spin on some of these tropes - for instance, the hero's friend is the WhiteMage.
* The comedic world of ''Byteria'' is generally built on clichés and has fun with them. [[CardCarryingVillain Card-Carrying Villains]] are common but not necessarily competent, and that [[OurElvesAreBetter elf]] living among humans [[ReallyGetsAround is fully aware of her sexiness]].
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' is essentially one big ShoutOut, {{Homage}}, and AffectionateParody of superheroes as a whole in {{MMORPG}} form, with the players all encouraged to join in the fun. Justified as it's the first MMOG in its genre.
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' had almost every RPG cliché you can think of at the time it was released, such as {{rebellious princess}}es with [[OrphansPlotTrinket mysterious pendants]], {{Heroic Mime}}s who live with a single mom ([[DisappearedDad no dad]]), [[GoodMorningCrono are woken up by said mom to get ready for the fair]], and SavingTheWorld from the EldritchAbomination...[[RecycledInSpace WITH TIME TRAVEL!]] Nevertheless, the story itself and the characters were praised by many for its brilliant usage of these clichés. Its successor, ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', was less troperiffic than its predecessor, and that itself divided the fanbase on the game.
* ''[[VideoGame/DarkSoulsI Dark Souls]]'' and its sequels, ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', milk just about every possible medieval fantasy trope and some more, [[SequelEscalation increasingly so]]. Be it setting, characters, creatures, equipment and even weapons, these games don't spare any detail when making a vast world with an interesting lore. This is on top of bearing many references to Creator/FromSoftware's works in ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and the ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' franchise, as well as incorporating countless NintendoHard elements.
* The [[AntiHero main character]] of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' carries a [[ClicheStorm hefty bag of tropes]] all by himself from a [[BadassLongcoat half]] [[BadassCrew dozen]] badass [[OneManArmy tropes]] to [[AbsurdlySharpBlade nearly]] [[BladeAcrossTheShoulder every]] [[DeadlyLunge single]] [[CoolSword Cool]] {{BFS}} [[AncestralWeapon trope]]. Every other aspect of the 5 games, anime series, manga, and 4 books just piles on more. However, it's this same UpToEleven use of tropes to create one CrazyAwesome classic.
* How about ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'', where all the cliches are just used as filler for what just boils down to lighthearted adventuring. Plus some of the tropes used for the more emotional scenes actually are pulled off phenomenally. Anyone who says seven isn't sad is lying.
* ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'' lets you play the role of a '70s DiabolicalMastermind in all its over-the-top splendor.
* With fourteen games and numerous spinoffs, the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series has used (and sometimes created) nearly ''every'' single RPG cliche ever seen.
** The scene in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' when Snow and Fang rescue Lightning and Hope in Palumpolum pushes very hard to find out how many tropes you can pack into one minute: Lightning and Hope come across a huge screen that shows a live broadcast of the capture of two fugitives, which causes an OhCrap moment as the camera zooms on them. Surrounded by a small army of soldiers and facing a BolivianArmyEnding, Lightning tells Hope to run while she makes her HeroicSacrifice, while the commander reminds his troops of WhatMeasureIsANonhuman. Even though ThereWasADoor, BoisterousBruiser and BadassLongcoat Snow and ActionGirl Fang arrive as the BigDamnHeroes. Snow points out that his IndyPloy doesn't need a plan, makes a ''{{Gun Twirl|ing}}'', and starts RoofHopping over the handrail. In mid-flight, he pulls out his {{Mon}}, giving us a nice TransformationSequence with lots of InstantRunes and freezes the entire place with InstantIceJustAddCold. Then, he and Fang ride down the ice bridges on their CoolBike, for Fang to [[SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou shoot the TV camera]]. All in less than 2 minutes.
** The ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|Final Fantasy}}'' games take this UpToEleven. [[{{Troll}} Kefka]] in particular seems to take great delight in [[LampshadeHanging pointing this out]].
-->'''Kefka''': [Sephiroth]'s just [[HypocriticalHumor another sadist with a god complex. Like ''that's'' anything special]].
* ''VideoGame/GotchaForce'' is based off of 1: Toy fights that children have with their action figures, and 2: Gatchapon toys based off of popular anime/video games/movies/etc. Combine these two together, and you have a video game that takes inspiration from an infinite area of resources, and proceeds to pit {{Ninja}}, [[TheWestern cowboys]], [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai samurai]], [[KnightInShiningArmor knights]], [[TankGoodness tanks]], [[RealRobot mecha infantry]], TransformingMecha, [[CoolPlane jet planes]], [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils dark monsters]], [[HenshinHero tokusatsu heroes]] and so many more against each other...'''with every single trope associated with them all kept intact'''.
* ''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'' takes all the classic NintendoHard [[ClassicVideoGameScrewYous "Fuck You"s]] from all those old 8-bit {{Side Scroller}}s, takes them to [[SerialEscalation ridiculous extremes]], and then causes you to explode into a million little bloody bits ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice while laughing the entire time]]''.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts''. Playing that game, you spend half of your time laughing as every single cliché you've ever seen pops up nicely in a row, and the other half with your finger glued to the button to see what happens next. AllLovingHero Sora, RivalTurnedEvil Riku, and DistressedDamsel Kairi are each the pure, distilled embodiments of their roles in the series. Hey we're taking about a game that's a {{crossover}} between [[Franchise/FinalFantasy two]] [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon of]] the most troperiffic franchises in existence. So it's pretty much a given.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' lives off of this idea. If more evidence is needed, check out its NinjaPirateZombieRobot and the ability to adventure in an area literally named The Obligatory Pirates Cove. And if you fight the right side in the War, you get to defeat The Man.
* ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' is nothing more and nothing less than absolute distillation of everything zombie and everything co-operative multiplayer into one incredibly freakishly fun package, especially with microphones and friends. Can you say, "OH GOD GET IT OFF ME GET IT OFF ME!!!"?
* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' was made to play the tropes of the series to the letter, since they knew that they were going to change things up for the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword next game]].
** [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda The whole series]] is really like this. TheChosenOne must find the SwordOfPlotAdvancement ''and'' [[GottaCatchEmAll all the pieces]] of the [[MacGuffin plot device]] -- every one of which is in a TempleOfDoom -- so he can stop TheHorde, cut through the QuirkyMinibossSquad and slay/banish the SorcerousOverlord, all to SaveThePrincess and liberate TheGoodKingdom. And it is one of the most [[SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome beloved and respected]] video game franchises of all time.
* ''VideoGame/{{Majesty}}'' has a unique PerspectiveFlip -- the PlayerCharacter is not the hero, but instead the guy who sets up the infrastructure for the heroes to go adventuring. Otherwise, the setting is an AffectionateParody of the stereotypical MedievalEuropeanFantasy.
* What ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' does for action movies, ''VideoGame/MaxPayne'' does for noir. The PrivateEyeMonologue is played so straight it becomes awesome.
* ''VideoGame/MetalGear''. ''Every'' trope, whether it's a GambitPileup or even simple HoYay, is played so ridiculously straight that they eventually curve back in on themselves to create such an impenetrable mess that it becomes near impossible to tell what's serious and what's parody, while ''still'' managing to elicit the reactions and results that the tropes were intended for in the first place.
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is basically a bunch of action heroes in an ''Film/EnterTheDragon''-style scenario. You've got the evil spirit who wants revenge, the BruceLeeClone, the actor who wants to prove his moves aren't faked, the thunder god, the Marine ActionGirl, the criminal, the Chinese assassin, the ProudWarriorRaceGuy, and the EvilSorceror. Subsequent games have added a MagicalNativeAmerican who at 6'3" is probably a plains Indian, her evil clone who is notable for almost seeming like a good guy at first, another bunch of ProudWarriorRaceGuy[=s=], ''Terminator'' clones, the guy named after his ancestor, [[BlindWeaponmaster the blind swordsman]], and many more. And oh, yeah, the BigBad gets more and more eldritch with each game.
* Creator/ObsidianEntertainment does not usually engage in this, but the original campaign of ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'' is a rare example, where the game heartily engages in a by the numbers adventure story with a few unexpected twists and turns -- all while merrily [[LampshadeHanging lampshading it]]. When they aren't unleashing a DeconstructorFleet against everything from ''D&D'' to George Lucas's idea of morality, that is...
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', being among the most well known {{Mon}} series features hundreds of tropes. Every character, both human and the Pokémon themselves are fairly complex since they both serve as both game characters and anime characters. The games themselves revolve around how turn-based battles in eastern {{RPG}}s work and each monster has its own "personality" of sorts and draw inspiration from practically everywhere.
* While ''VideoGame/RedSteel'' is a ClicheStorm, ''Red Steel 2'' is Troperiffic. ''Red Steel 2'' combines DesertPunk and {{Samurai}} tropes in every way possible. In every AWESOME way possible, mind you.
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'' plays straight, plays with, invokes or lampshades just about every RuleOfCool related trope.
* Most JidaiGeki drama set around the Sengoku Jidai period will predictably straddle around ClicheStorm and Troperiffic, although two sets the bar for the video games department:
** ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. Badass HotBlooded RuleOfCool cranked UpToEleven in a WorldOfHam AnachronismStew. CrazyAwesome HilarityEnsues.
** ''[[Creator/AliceSoft Sengoku Rance]]''. Well-thought RuleOfCool JidaiGeki clashes with a GenderFlip {{Eroge}} AnachronismStew peppered with CrazyAwesome? In which {{Hilarity|Ensues}} meets TearJerker? Pretty much the perfect storm.
* A Creator/{{Sierra}} AdventureGame was usually loaded to the gills with whatever trope was handy. VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry had sex and porn tropes. VideoGame/KingsQuest took any FairyTale trope and went crazy with it. VideoGame/LauraBow handled murder mysteries. VideoGame/SpaceQuest skewered sci-fi tropes most of the time, but when they played it straight... FridgeHorror galore.
* Spoofed in ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsGame'', where you collect clichés (and Comic Book Guy explains them).
* ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'' is stuffed to the gills just about every heroic fantasy cliche there is. Perhaps because [[{{Reconstruction}} it came at a time]] when every [=RPG=] in a five-year radius was trying to be [[DarkerAndEdgier dark and edgy]], subverting every trope they could, ''Skies''' return to a group of adventurers who enjoy each others' company and go looking for the {{MacGuffin}}s to save the world from an [[GoodRepublicEvilEmpire Evil Empire]] ended up being a breath of fresh air.
* The ''VideoGame/StarControl'' series is innundated with an extensive variety of sci-fi tropes (in particular, the second game in the series, ''Star Control II / The Ur-Quan Masters''). These games specialize in alternating between playing tropes straight and outright subverting or inverting them - keeping the player guessing at all times.
* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' from Creator/ParadoxInteractive liberally borrows ideas for units, technologies and civilisations from all kinds of science fiction and SpaceOpera works, such as Franchise/StarTrek, Franchise/MassEffect, Literature/TheCulture and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}. And allows them to mix, mingle, and compete in an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny, whether by proxy through [[{{Expy}} expies]][[note]]the base game alone has human civilzations based on [[Franchise/StarTrek the Federation]] and [[Film/StarshipTroopers the United Citizen Federation]], the latter as a LostColony so the two can meet, and it's not too hard to design [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40K the Imperium of Man]] as well[[/note]] or, if the player uses {{Game Mod}}s extensively, directly.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'', being [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover what it is]], tends to use pretty much every HumongousMecha trope at least once or twice a game.
* Pretty much the whole ''VideoGame/TalesSeries'' could fit in the trope, specially after ''Symphonia''. They combine bizillions of tropes with some well-calculated unexpected twists and/or original ways of presenting those tropes. And, ironically, thanks to that they manage to pull off some great, hard-to-forget stories. In other words, in Namco Tales Studio know very well what they're doing.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', each character exhibits at least 3 character tropes, and the plot itself has predictable twists, founds itself on FantasticRacism and UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans, and plenty of other tropes and cliches thrown in for good measure, and still manages to look like an original game despite it all.
** ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' is this for basically the opposite reason: it plays almost every trope straight, but it just ''works''.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' throws all the unnecessary bits like plotting and storyline out and gives a varied, memorable cast who all have a very distinct but very expected way of kicking ass. It basically turns away from the modern notion of more "realistic" multiplayer FPS games for a full and complete embracing of the RuleOfFun. To put it differently, it caters to about a dozen different categories of tropes. Each of the nine characters has a trope-tastic personality and/or {{backstory}} ([[HuskyRusskie The Heavy]], [[ScaryBlackMan The]] [[ViolentGlaswegian Demo]][[DrunkenMaster man]], as well as many weapons that apply for tropes (BatterUp, GrievousBottleyHarm, StuffBlowingUp, etc). In addition to [[CaptainObvious first-person shooter]] tropes, it also has a few RPG/MMORPG tropes, with the class system and all.
* ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'' pulls off every FilmNoir and LowFantasy CityNoir trope imaginable... and gets away with it by [[DeconstructorFleet subverting the hell out of them]]... Not to mention [[AffectionateParody hilariously]] {{lampshad|eHanging}}ing anything that invokes a possible ClicheStorm or is in dire need of an MST3KMantra.
* ''[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/508676 This is The Only Level]]'' incorporates several video game tropes to change what is otherwise the exact same level over and over again.
* Website/FunOrb's ''Tomb Racer'' is stuffed with as many TempleOfDoom cliches as its creators could think of, resulting in a fine example of why TropesAreNotBad.
* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' = Japanese folklore + {{Moe}} + {{Moe}} + [[RuleOfThree Moe]] shoot 'em ups, with some Deconstruction. Clocked up to the maximum by {{fan|wank}}s. Just look at the character sheet.
* ''VideoGame/YouHaveToBurnTheRope''. It takes longer to list all the tropes that it embodies than it does to finish the game.
* A majority of the cast in the ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'' series take inspirations from many movie tropes and clichés. Some of the characters include Hisako, a Japanese StringyHairedGhostGirl who wouldn't look out of place in ''Film/TheRing'', Spinal, an undead skeleton pirate who was based off of the skeletons in ''Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts'', Chief Thunder, a MagicalNativeAmerican who is fighting to recover his brother's body to give it a proper burial, and Fulgore, a killer robot who is more or less the result of mashing the title characters of ''{{Film/Predator}}'' and ''Film/TheTerminator'' into a single character.
* VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'', being a DeconstructorFleet on dungeon crawler tropes, accomplishes this with a wide variety cast of characters with unique personalities as well as throwing in many CosmicHorrorStory tropes that it can think of.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' has an impressive list of tropes, and it's a game about MundaneMadeAwesome lawyers.
* The ''Franchise/WhenTheyCry'' series is excellent at this. ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' deserves a particular mention, combining MaybeMagicMaybeMundane, GroundhogDayLoop, ClosedCircle, CluelessMystery, ''and'' FairPlayWhodunnit into one VisualNovel. It has [[MundaneMadeAwesome debates]]! [[RecycledInSpace IN COLOR]]! The characters are also quite GenreSavvy when it comes to dealing with mysteries, and even lampshades the use of the related tropes.
* ''VisualNovel/YoJinBo'' is full of anime and romance tropes, lampshades just about every trope it can, and runs on RuleOfFunny. It wouldn't be half as awesome if it were any different.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'' skewers basically every RPG trope in the entire TV Tropes Wiki.
* Chris Hastings once wrote down every single '80s action movie trope that he could remember. Then he crammed ever one of them into a story. The result was ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'' StoryArc "D.A.R.E. to Resist Ninja Drugs and Violence".
* If individual characters can be Troperiffic, ''Webcomic/AntiheroForHire'''s Dr. Nefarious is.
%%* Even though ''Webcomic/TheDreamer'' only has 10 issues so far, it is particularly trope-filled.
%%* And ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is another Trope-alicious example.
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' plays with almost every GenderBender related trope here; it even provides the page image for it. It also uses quite a lot of {{Shapeshifting}}, and UrbanFantasyTropes (to the point of being a FantasyKitchenSink). Additionally, in terms of trope density it has over 3/4ths the number of tropes to actual strips. No wonder then that this LongRunner comic is TropeOverdosed.
* In-story example: In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Dr. Disaster's [[HardLight holo-simulator]] plugs its users into a story straight out of [[RaygunGothic 1950s pulp sci-fi]]: {{Latex Spacesuit}}s, {{Death Ray}}s, and alien moon fortresses are played gleefully straight. Antimony is the [[MetaGuy only one]] who [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife has any problem accepting this]], and even she eventually lightens up and has a great time.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Webcomic/{{MS Paint Adventure|s}}, does the same thing for simulation games, fantasy, and sci-fi that ''Problem Sleuth'' did for adventure games, noir, and Anime-style action. Many time travel tropes, a jillion different kinds of AppliedPhlebotinum, video game themed {{technobabble}}, characters with increasingly bizarre traits, and a great big heaping of JustForFun/TropesOfLegend all mix together with a great soundtrack and whimsical art style into the one of the most Troperiffic things in existence. The main work page itself [[TroperCriticalMass became so long]] that the tropes listed had to be put into folders! In fact, ''Homestuck'' as well as other hugely Troperiffic franchises are in part responsible for some of the recent server crashes. They have so many tropes they are crashing the site.
* ''Webcomic/NoRestForTheWicked'': How many fairy tales can you stick into a single webcomics? Quite a few, actually.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' is determined to have an example on every page here. Even mutually exclusive ones. [[EspeciallyZoidberg Especially mutually exclusive ones!]]
* ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'', like ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'', goes out of its way to use, [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]], avert, subvert, invert, and [[AffectionateParody pay homage to]] nearly every single RPG and Adventure game trope out there, culminating in one of the most gloriously surreal FinalBoss battles ever, as all the tropes collapse in on themselves like some giant [[{{Postmodernism}} Post-Modernist]] singularity.
* Is there any {{Metafiction|DemandedThisIndex}} trope ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' (and maybe even its spin-offs like ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'') doesn't use?[[note]]Not many, just the ones that would require actual actors. Not counting ActorAllusion.[[/note]] And half the JustForFun/TropesOfLegend with characters from half the CultClassic list and some from even actual classics sprinkled in. Not to mention anything even remotely related to MindScrew, {{Crossover}}, (fangirl oriented) {{Fanservice}} etc..
* ''Webcomic/{{Terinu}}'' combines old school YA science fiction coming of age, super powers, space pirates, a galaxy wide war story, cyberpunk style net hacking... WITH FURRIES!

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''[[http://community.livejournal.com/beststoryever The Best Story Ever]]'', a [=NaNoWriMo=] novel in six EXTREME sentences.
* ''Roleplay/DarwinsSoldiers'' has a ''spectacular'' amount of tropes that are played straight, averted or subverted. It probably helps that all three of the main players are tropers. But despite the massive amount of tropes, the story never manages to get corny.
%% * The level of Lampshading in ''Machinima/CombatDevolved'' counts as this.
* Everything by the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/duncanbros Duncan Bros]]. Their hallmark is a short movie of around 5 mins which takes on a given genre and crams in as many tropes and clichés from the genre as possible while still being very funny.
%%* If ''Website/GaiaOnline'' isn't the most Troperiffic online community, then we don't know what is.
* In a podcast, the ''Webvideo/LoadingReadyRun'' crew have expressed a desire to use every trope in the main Wiki/TVTropes directory. Good luck to them.
%% * ''Roleplay/MallFight'' is especially not ashamed of that fact.
* TropesAreNotGood: Both ''WebAnimation/NekoSugarGirls'' and ''Literature/TheUglyBarnacle'' [[note]]though the latter isn't bad as much as [[BrokeTheRatingScale not applicable]][[/note]] are highly Troperiffic, containing several tropes per minute/word. But that's just because they're so short in the first place.
* ''WebAnimation/WeekendPussyHunt'' has barely over 25 minutes worth of content (probably less if you discount the interactive segments) and [[LeftHanging never even got finished]], yet it is a surprisingly trope-rich cartoon series, thanks in part to its FilmNoir narrative.
* ''WebVideo/ObscurusLupa'' is an especially trope saturated show; the show's page examples are a good measure of this.
* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'' is a heartless, ruthless secret organization dedicated to containing (and occasionally destroying) hundreds of abnormal objects that variously subvert, deconstruct, or play straight loads of UrbanFantasy and CosmicHorrorStory tropes.
* The Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses anniversary specials such as ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'' and ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' have as much fun as they can with tropes, usually tropes seen in movies the cast has reviewed in the past.
* ''Website/{{Cracked}}''
** The page image is the winner of the [[http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_143_if-every-website-got-dramatic-movie-adaptation/ If Every Website Got A Dramatic Movie Adaptation]] photoplasty.
** The [=BriTANick=] video ''Website/ATrailerForEveryAcademyAwardWinningMovieEver'' has most of the tropes in popular Oscar winners.
* ''[[Radio/TrueCapitalist True Capitalist Radio]]'' is quite possibly the most trope rich political talk show of all time. This is largely thanks to its energetic and extremely short tempered host whose complicated and strong political views make him a prime target for the colorful RoguesGallery of trolls that infest the show and attempt to set off one of his countless [[BerserkButton Berserk Buttons]] for their enjoyment.
* If it's a Super Hero trope, or a {{gender blending trope|s}}, it's probably found somewhere in the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse''.
** Some of the authors are Tropers, and will refer to tropes by name. A lot.
* LetsPlay/PewDiePie is probably one of the most troperrific Youtubers (let alone gamers) on the site, considering that the games he plays bestow remarkable amounts of [[GenreSavvy genre savviness]].
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' contains anime, martial arts and video game tropes by the absolute truckload, often as a way to promptly subvert, deconstruct, or flesh them out just as quickly as you see them appear. Hardly surprising when you consider [[Creator/MontyOum the people]] [[Creator/RoosterTeeth behind it]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. This entire show is just one big love-letter to TheNineties' cartoons.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' frequently parodies cartoon tropes.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Example: it takes ElementalPowers, plays them to the hilt by having the benders use their powers for more than just fancy martial arts. There are a few subversions, notably [[spoiler:Azula's interruption of Aang's Avatar transformation and Zuko's subverted HeelFaceTurn at the end of the Season 2 finale.]] This just makes those trope subversions all the more jarring and awesome.
* While many superhero comics since the end of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} try to avoid the almost inherent silliness of the genre, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' embraces them so hard that [[CrossesTheLineTwice it goes back around from "stupid" to]] [[RuleOfCool spectacular]]. It also adds the occasional dash of Bronze Age and Modern Day super-hero tropes to keep viewers on their toes.
* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' took what could have been a cheap knock-off show and turned it into [[RuleOfCool pure awesome]] through a combination of GenreSavvy and this trope. Zurg gets extra points for being savvy...[[CardCarryingVillain most of the time]].
* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. The show is only two seasons long (52 episodes, each divided in TwoShorts) and fairly obscure (not as well known as ''Total Drama'', but more popular than most Canadian cartoons), yet the page for it is filled with tropes and it's mentioned on dozens of WesternAnimation categories on trope pages (up there with ''The Simpsons'' and ''My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic''). {{Fannage}} much?
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. The two-part pilot draws from nearly every MagicalGirl trope in the book. The rest of the series is a SliceOfLife comedy with heavy WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes influences, numerous [[ShoutOut shout outs]] that the target demographic might not get, and AnAesop applied at the end of nearly every episode. It's also self-aware enough that it lampshades most of these tropes. Is it any wonder why this show got such a vocal PeripheryDemographic?
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. Their favorite is BetterThanABareBulb, but judging from the page length, they're no strangers to ''any'' trope -- almost every single one has been played straight, [[SubvertedTrope subverted]], double-subverted, [[InvertedTrope inverted]], etc.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' is another, if not bigger love-letter to TheNineties' cartoons and even goes as far to have many references to TheEighties. Its characters, crazy plots, and overall surreal nature is loved by many a tv troper.
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' centers around a {{Samurai}} who is raised from birth to defeat a LargeHam MadeOfEvil BigBad. Then they're [[TimeTravel flung into the future]], which is a BadFuture VillainWorld, and has a SeriesGoal to get back to the past and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong.
* ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated''. By the first episode's official airing the page already had dozens of tropes, and it just keeps growing from there.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', in spades. Just check out the length of their page. And there's even more than what you can find on their own page. Pick a random trope, any trope. Chances are, there will be an example from The Simpsons there. Or it will even be the page image.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' has made a mission of spoofing, skewering, twisting, parodying, lampooning, deconstructing, and (often) at the same time abusing and celebrating virtually everything under the sun, especially {{Trope}}s.
* ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' is just one huge love letter to the super robot genre and tokusatsu and boy, does it ever show.
* Both incarnations of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats'' feature a setting that combines fantasy and science fiction, which surprisingly works extremely well.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'', both because of its parody of reality show tropes and its 24+ different character types with their own personalities.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', being a DeconstructiveParody of around a dozen or so different entertainment genres, from "youth adventure" series like ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' to Pulp Comics like ''Franchise/DocSavage'' to the "peace, love, and super-science" culture of TheSixties. Just about every trope therein is used, abused, and lampshaded at least once, often [[RuleOfFunny whichever is funniest at the time.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' has to split its tropes up into 8 separate pages; and that's not counting those for ''The Legend of Ogrest''.
