Only one or two of the entries on this page even vaguely addresses a domino effect. T He rest seem to be mostly lists of "There are lots of different types of mythological creatures in this setting" which seems like a different trope. Does this trope serve any purpose?

I'm also curious about that. It seems like that isn't even this trope, just a subtrope of it, really. It seems like a better fit for this trope would be, say, "So-and-so's death wasn't an accident - they were murdered - why? - because they knew too much - what did they know? - That their teacher is an agent of this organization - And so is the principal - and the whole school was created for its purposes - and they were behind this, this, and this recent major event - AND they happen to be run by vampires". So I don't know why everyone seems to be misunderstanding it based on the example as opposed to, maybe, looking at the name of the trope.
