This is why SeenItAMillionTimes doesn't mean we can't trope it, and never did. It only means it's really common, and that there are perhaps too many examples to make listing them worthwhile. This also means that TruthInTelevision doesn't invalidate a trope (especially since it lists valid tropes on that page), because if there are reasons it's done in fiction (whether or not the reason applies in RealLife), then ''there are still reasons it's done in fiction''.

{{Plots}}, {{Characters}}, and {{Conflict}} are tropes, and [[OmnipresentTropes literally no proper story can be told without them]] (whatever form they take).
