Lampshaded: "Not again! Did he really just have the hero (Insert Trope X Here)?"
Invoked: A writer has been battling for weeks with writer's block, and finally decides to cop out by just including every typical trope he can think of.
Exploited: The writer is a Trolling Creator and deliberately puts in material everyone will hate for a laugh.
Defied: Instead of succumbing to temptation, said writer takes months rewriting his Magnum Opus to perfection, eschewing the use of cliched and useless tropes.
Deconstructed: A writer hated the trope so much, that he writes Trope X in a way that would be presented in real life, at an utmost devastating example.
Reconstructed: Then a new writer decides he liked the trope, and plays it taking into account the earlier writer's criticism but bringing up explicit circumstances in which the trope's presence doesn't make things worse.
Played For Laughs: A film is written featuring every Discredited Trope known to man, parodying the type of films it is based on.
