In short, {{trope}}s which have Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} articles. In long:

Here on Wiki/TVTropes, we tropers dedicate ourselves to cataloging recurrent patterns in fiction. Everyone knows that; it's the name of the game. Other sites deal with {{trope}}s, too, though none of them are as exhaustive as Wiki/TVTropes, which is perfectly normal. However, there's [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} one site that takes it too far]]: it's supposed to be a free world-class encyclopedia, yet it's wasting time talking on and on about {{cliche}}s in fiction. And that's ''our'' job. Isn't that a waste of bandwidth? Perhaps so, but the practice is a lot more common than non-tropers would think.

The truth of the matter is Wikipedians do it for a variety of reasons—the {{trope}} may be common enough for scholarly interest, it may say something about psychology, it may be as much a real world phenomenon as an element used in fiction, or it may simply just be one of those many [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Silly_Things Silly Things]] Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} does. On the other hand, it might also be because Wiki/TVTropes has fallen victim to the LawOfWikiExpansion, and the topic really is one that best fits in a general-interest encyclopedia. In any case, it's beneficial to Wiki/TVTropes; the more pages on {{trope}}s there are on Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}, the more people will be led to our site.

Not to be confused with YouAreNotAlone, or the [[AlienTropes idea of other intelligent life in the galaxy]].
