Playing With: Trademark Favorite Food
Basic Trope: A character likes a certain food, and it becomes part of their character.
  • Straight: Alice loves to eat apples, and her fondness for them becomes an integral part of her personality in both canon and fan works.
  • Exaggerated:
    • One bite of an apple causes Alice to have an earth-shattering orgasm.
    • Alice seems to eat nothing but apples.
    • Alice puts copious amount of applesauce on everything including hamburgers and soups.
  • Downplayed: Alice is shown eating apples several times, more often than she's shown eating anything else, but it's not commented on. It's still clear that they're her favorite food, though.
  • Justified:
    • Alice belongs to an alien species which treats apples like an addictive drug.
    • She just really likes apples.
  • Inverted: Does Not Like Spam.
  • Subverted:
    • Alice eats an apple and spits it out in disgust.
    • Alice is seen eating an apple and enjoying it, but later reveals that they are not her favourite food.
  • Double Subverted:
    • She does this because the apple was bruised; she eats another apple and thoroughly enjoys it.
    • Alice is seen eating an apple and enjoying it, but later reveals that they are not her favourite food. She really likes peaches, though.
  • Parodied: The sight of an apple causes Alice to get Wingding Apple Eyes and eat it whole.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice switches to liking and hating apples on a daily basis.
  • Averted: Alice doesn't like apples more than any other food.
  • Enforced: The show is sponsored by the ACME Apple Co.
  • Lampshaded: "I knew you'd love the apples I brought you!"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: Alice falls into a trap because it was baited with apples.
  • Defied: Alice avoids eating apples more often than she eats any other type of fruit because she thinks having an obsession with a particular food is childish or embarrassing.
  • Discussed: "How come Alice is always eating apples?"
  • Conversed: This Alice Chick is always eating apples...like doesn't she eat anything else?
  • Deconstructed: The Big Bad Doctor Steel lures Alice towards him with apples and kills her.
  • Reconstructed: Alice gives him a whuppin' and steals the apples.
