Some of them are intrinsically vital to storytelling itself; they're so ubiquitous, you don't even think of them as {{trope}}s until they're pointed out to you. Some are AcceptableBreaksFromReality--unrealistic {{trope}}s that are intrinsic to the escapist appeal of fiction, and would seriously detract from it if they were {{averted|trope}}. Then you have the ones which are not necessary by any means, but look like the most ''natural'' thing in the world--timeless classics which for centuries have driven stories forward, held audience breaths and become legends. You sit through the work expecting them, even looking forward to them; come the EstablishingShot, the first thing you ask yourself is "Where's TheHero?" If we were to list every single example of these tropes, the pages would go on forever; as a result, several of them only allow examples of the trope [[PlayingWithATrope being played with]] and not just used.
