Let's say there's a trope for "Juggling". You realize that "Scarf Juggling" and "Knife Juggling" are pretty common as well, to the point where you can think of half a dozen examples for both. Those would be Sub-Tropes, whereas "Juggling" in general is their SuperTrope. In [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genus-differentia_definition logic terms]], "Juggling" is the genus and the different kinds of juggling are the differentia; they share the same common theme in their definition, but they each have additional features that distinguish one from another.

What makes a sub-trope can vary. Perhaps the most common way is that several examples of a trope have a distinctive common element not seen in the other examples. This distinctive element makes the sub-trope [[TheSameButMoreSpecific the same, but more distinctive]] than the broader trope. A trope can have several possible variations built in, and once examples of any of those variations are common/distinctive enough, they form a sub-trope. Any sub-tropes should be listed instead of the super trope, because the sub-trope implies the presence of the super trope.

What makes a sub-trope can vary. Perhaps the most common way is that several examples of a trope have a distinctive common element not seen in the other examples. That makes the super trope separate from the larger trope. Or, as mentioned above, a trope can have several possible variations built in, and once examples of any of those variations are common enough, they form a sub-trope. These sub-tropes can be listed instead of the super trope, seeing as the sub-trope implies the presence of the super trope.

Now the definition of the super and sub tropes are what's important. In most cases, every example of a sup trope will also be an example of its super trope, but there are some exceptions. Fortunately it's good troping etiquette to just list sub trope examples on those pages instead of the super tropes (to avoid page bloat), rather than worrying if every example fits the larger trope.

Heck, some tropes can be sub-tropes of more than one super trope. This can be a shared aspect of them or actually [[XMeetsY combining the two tropes]].
