What is the difference between Troperiffic and Trope Overdosed?

lOL. Cracked made a poster for you guys? XD

Well, that's nice. ^^;

All of the amusing stuff I've seen from that site seems pretty weird. XD So is the old school site funnyjunk, which has some NSFW stuff in it. :p

Anyone know how the trope's current name was coined? And more specifically, where the "-iffic" suffix came from, since English only has "-ific"?

I think it's a pronunciation thing - it sounds more like "ff".

The laconic says this is when there are many cliches, which is Cliché Storm. The description of this trope implies it's specific to tropes, which are not (necessarily) cliches. Should the laconic be changed?

Well, all discussion about Troperiffic examples, and yet... NO MENTION OF THE GUNDAM FRANCHISE IN ITS ENTIRETY?!

A little disturbing how well the example story so obviously describes Star Wars. I suppose it describes nearly every other fantasy-hero story too, but that one immediately comes to mind... Obi-Wan jumping on a Vader grenade, "Kid" Luke realizing his latent Heroic Jedi Willpower, facing the Big Bad Vader, who turns on the evil Emperor overlord. Etc.

What is the most troperific of each folder in terms of tropes listed on their page? Does anyone wanna take a stab at this?

Should this trope just be merged with Cliché Storm? There's no real difference between them except that Troperiffic is presented as inherently good (which goes against one of this wiki's rules) while a Cliché Storm is usually bad, but can be done well. If that's the case, shouldn't they be considered two sides of the same trope?

We should sell posters of 'TV Tropes: The Movie' . . . they would sell

I'll reiterate an issue I raised in the previous discussion: Does anyone think we could find a better image for this trope than the current one? The picture on the page at the moment is a serious case of Just a Face and a Caption, only exacerbated by the fact that the face in question is a secondary character in a fairly obscure game. Aside from the issue of whether this trope can be captured in a a single image in the first place, doesn't troperiffic normally apply to entire works rather than individual characters?
