Playing With: Made of Win
Basic Trope: Tropers get entries here honoring their contributions to TV Tropes.
  • Straight: A troper spends hours compiling every known example of a brand new trope and is duly mentioned.
  • Exaggerated:
    • A troper does nothing but compile examples of a brand new trope, never taking breaks to sleep or eat.
    • A troper develops a following that acknowledges every contribution they make.
  • Downplayed: The troper is given an honourable mention after a few choice contributions.
  • Justified: If the troper really did spend massive amounts of time and energy or uncovered some new piece of information, they probably deserve it.
  • Inverted: A troper mentions that the Made of Win page became sentient and then spent hours compiling every known example of a brand new trope.
  • Subverted: A troper spends hours making contributions and instead gets an entry on Made Of Lose.
  • Double Subverted: The mention was put there to increase the impact for when it was moved back to Made of Win.
  • Parodied: Another troper creates a "fake" acknowledgment, which is actually a thinly veiled attack on the target troper.
  • Zig Zagged: A troper makes a contribution that is mentioned on the page, but the original contribution is deleted by an over-zealous natterhound.
  • Averted: A troper fails to get any mentions, but their contributions were minimal anyway.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "Well done, troper. Here's an internet. I don't need it anymore."
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: ???
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: A troper finally gets a mention on the page, develops a false sense of superiority because of it, and spends the rest of their days creating endless edit wars.
  • Reconstructed: Instead of developing a big head, the honored troper is motivated by the acknowledgment and goes on to even greater fame and glory.
