Is there an opposite to this, some sort of least triumphant or most sucky example? Could have sworn there used to be, but maybe not.

Given suckiness can only apply to the Bad Writing Index and attract lots of potential complaining, I don't think such examples are/will be allowed.

No different than the Dethroning Moment of Suck - except to Tropes and not Works.

Just out of curiosity, before I try to share any opinions... What is the policy on tropers changing their minds? There's only one example per user, which is understandable. But, say I put in an entry on Trope X using Show Y, for whatever reasons I see fit. But say later I end up watching another show, Z, which I think uses the trope more interestingly or outstandingly, and decide that Show Y's example is no longer the "most triumphant" one in my view. Would I be able to retract my "vote" and cast it for my new opinion? In short, is my first vote entirely binding? I can't imagine it would be, but I'm just perhaps overly paranoid.

Sure. It's not really voting. Just edit your text.

If someone's posted an example which technically is NOT an example, would it be okay to remove it? Someone stated "Winter's Bone has been called Jennifer Lawrence's feature-length audition for The Hunger Games." under Stealth Sequel, when the film was neither a Sequel nor related to the Hunger Games.

Yes. Trope misuse is a reason for removal.

How come there isn't a "Most Triumphant Example" link on most tropes just like there is a link for "Playing With" or "Analysis"?
12:44:45 AM Mar 26th 2015
Because this article doesn't get trope-specific subpages.

How come there's no Most Triumphant Example for Nice Guy?
07:41:05 AM Jan 31st 2014
Because nobody added one. Feel free to add an item.

Is it okay to nuke unsigned examples and YMMV tropes while I'm here editing anyway?
07:39:19 AM Nov 21st 2012
Yes to the first, maybe to the second. That may need clarification in Ask The Tropers.

Tear Jerker doesn't deserve to have a Most Triumphant Example because it's an opinion-based trope...

Should we start limiting the number of entries as MT Es? Some listings are getting a little bloated. (Such as Badass, which currently has 28 selections.)
12:18:48 AM Feb 18th 2012
I don't think it's necessary, but even if I did, it's one per person per trope. How would we limit it any further? First five people to get their nominations in get to have them on the page? Doesn't seem fair.

Maybe a massive MTE reboot every five or ten years where all examples are erased so the examples people have forgotten about don't build up? Maybe every 15 years..
11:04:50 AM Jul 19th 2012
Um, this wiki is less than ten years old...
08:21:57 AM Feb 10th 2011
Shouldn't there be a YMMV tab for MT Es relating to subjective tropes? I didn't see any flame wars or controversy regarding those, and I saw quite a few signed examples.
09:05:43 PM Jan 15th 2011
It's kinda unsettling that 70% of the examples come from Anime... Not bashing anime, but most of the examples are from fairly obscure shows. But you can only see "Blah blah Neon Genesis Evangelion" for so long before you begin to yearn for examples from Live Action Tv or Western Animation.

Umm...the X, Just...X wasn't being used as a qualifier, it was poking fun at how people tend to (wrongly) emphasize their MTIs. Completely Missing the Point?
