We here at TV Tropes like to sort things, and it's not just because we are Obsessively Organized. It's because we like our articles to be easy-to-read and easy to navigate. Thus, when writing articles, it's considered good form to sort the examples given for a particular trope into media categories.

When a trope launches without a lot of examples, it may not get sorted right away. However, tropes grow, and when they do, a previously not-all-that-problematic block of examples can turn into an enormous thread mush of video games, TV shows, movies, commercials, EarthBound sprite comics that tanked after 7 strips, and what have you. These articles have reached that state.

If you have some spare time and feel like doing a good deed, please go to these pages and sort their examples. There are 4 ways this is usually done. You can enter the media categories using the small caps font [[AC: (text)]], use !!Headings, make a new subpage, or you can create folders for the categories.

Simply cut and paste examples into their proper categories, and then cut out those category links with no examples. It keeps things looking tidy. If you can't do them all, even partial sorting is a start.

A note on headers: Folder titles no longer produce Wiki Words, even if they're used. Wiki Words in small caps headers are OK.

And, of course, if you find a completely or partially unsorted page, add it and its subpages!

Note: Please don't remove an article from this list until it has been completely sorted. Every example needs to be in its category. If it is completely sorted, please remove it from the list. Thanks!
