Statues, Monuments and Memorials

Go To

This index is for tropes that relate to anything built or created to memorialize someone or something. These are typically created to honor a person — usually dead but possibly alive if the Setting is a People's Republic of Tyranny — or to celebrate a great victory.

Related to Spectacle and Victory and Defeat. See also Death Tropes (which often mark the occasion for memorials), Funeral Tropes, and Breaking and Destruction Tropes (since they often suffer this fate). For Real Life examples of famous statues and monuments, go to the Art page.
