Is this an example?:
- Make sure that the example makes sense to both people who don't know the work AND don't know the trope.
- Never just put the trope title and leave it at that.
- When is normally far less important than How.
- A character name is not an explanation.

- The Cheerleader: Who is that girl? Why does she fit the archetype? The description of The Cheerleader states that "Cheerleaders are often depicted as outright evil [...]". Is that the case?
- Tall, Dark and Snarky: Could be ok.
- Cain and Abel: You start with Word Cruft ("are build from this trope"). The thing about the description here is that you exhibit several pairs of characters who you state have this dynamic, and that they parallel each other. But I have no idea how these guys are and how they interact, so I can't tell why they fit.
- The Casanova: Looks good to me.
- Doppelgänger: Probably ok, although I don't understand the "the original Doppelgänger" bit (did they get exchanged???).
- Cain and Abel: Damon, as the older brother is the Cain and Stefan is the Abel. The rift between the brothers began when they both fell for Katherine Pierce, who manipulated them both for her purpose. At the present time, Damon is cruel, intent on screwing around with Stefan's life and does not suppress his vampiric urges, whereas Stefan is trying not to hurt humans and live peacefully with Elena. Damon, however, gets more sympathetic as the series progresses.
