TV Tropes: The Video Game (stylized as TVT:TVG, often shortened to TVG) is, as the name suggests, a video game based on a fictionalized version of This Very Wiki. TVT:TVG was developed by YKTTW Games and published by Trope Co. TVG incorporates aspects of many different genres and involves the use of Tropes to alter the flow of the in-game story.

The plot (Which is still in progress) revolves around a mysterious user simply called "The Troper" who starts at his or her home in the forumforest of Tropeland. They discover that the world of TV Tropes is under attack by an unknown entity that's referred to as The Decay and learns the source is somewhere in the realm of Darthwikia. The Troper also learns that before he or she can log into Darthwikia they must recover several ancient artifacts called The Crowning Moments from each of the Media Realms surrounding Tropeland, the last of which is buried somewhere in the Forumforest itself. Along the way they must fight Trolls and Natterheads, resolve Edit Wars, discover increasingly powerful Tropes, and make all sorts of cultural references as The Troper (for whatever reason) sets off on an adventure that transcends mediums and busts more genres than Real Life* to stop The Decay and save This Very Wiki before The Decay begins ruining other websites and ultimately the Internet and perhaps even Real Life itself.

     List of Enemies 

  • Demonic Spider: A very rare but nonetheless horrifying enemy of The Darth Wiki. Demonic Spiders will heavily drain your health, inventory items and MP.

  • Hellhound : At one point in the game, Natterhounds are sent out as enemies. You must turn into Tropey the Wonder Dog to fight them, or any attacks you do will be Kicking The Dog and you will alert the Moral Guardians who will provide support by lowering your stats.

  • Troll: A commonly occurring foe that is not only immune to The Power of Hate, but becomes stronger from it. The common variant of troll is especially squicked out by The Power of Love.

  • Cute Ghost Girl: A adorable little ghost, but don't be fooled by its sugary-sweet appearance, it can posses allies and the player into hunting themselves.

  • Voodoo Shark: A zombie shark that runs on the power of Hand Waves and Plot Holes. They are dangerous and hard to kill, but only appear in the later levels of the game.

  • Actually Four Mook: A seemingly normal Mook that releases three more identical Mooks when you engage it in battle.

  • Border Patrol: A group of very strong enemies that surrounds the player in specific situations, and while their attacks can only knock you back, they have one heck of a defensive game. Defeating one and escaping the others can net you a huge bonus towards Free Will on your Morality Meter.

  • Degraded Boss: Actually happens twice. The first time it happens, Proicimus actually doesn't want to fight, her superior making her a common Mook for not defeating the hero and can even join up with you to spite her boss. The second one is also a Secret Character, but you need Proicimus to unlock them.
