Just For Fun / Trope Epitaph

Go To

Alas, poor Trope Name! I knew him, Horatio. We come here to bury these tropes, not to praise them. They were killed by misuse, by duplication, by policy or by just being absolutely terrible. Here in the trope cemetery, their final resting place, are their epitaphs inscribed for all posterity; they are gone, but not forgotten, no matter how hard we try.
