Basic Trope: Breaking stuff gives you money.
  • Straight: Kolari breaks stuff and money falls out.
  • Exaggerated: Kolari blows up the city to get money.
  • Downplayed: Kolari breaks stuff and picks up the scraps that are required to craft items which may be used or sold.
  • Justified:
    • The currency of this world gets its value as a building material.
    • Someone is paying Kolari for the vandalism and demolition work.
  • Inverted: You must pay for replacing stuff you break.
  • Subverted: Kolari breaks a street sign and it drops stuff. Upon further examination, it is worthless shrapnel.
  • Double Subverted: That turns out to be sellable for a high profit.
  • Parodied: Kolari Nukes a city, and the resulting money drop is enough to rebuild the city, clear the fallout, invent a Time Machine to rescue the inhabitants with, and eliminate all poverty across the world.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Nothing gets smashed.
  • Enforced: People like smashing things. It's fun.
  • Lampshaded: Why does money fall out of everything
  • Invoked: The Powersthatbe put money in objects for Kolari to use to Save The World

  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed:
    • Nothing ever gets built because people always destroy everything.
    • The Big Bad uses the money from the objects to Take Over the World.
  • Reconstructed:
    • But the profit gained allows the rebuilding of everything that was destroyed.
