Basic Trope: A dark reflection of another world.

  • Straight: Dark Troperia is a twisted shadow of the peaceful Troperia.
  • Exaggerated: Dark Troperia is a full blown Eldritch Location that no Troperian was meant to find.
  • Downplayed: Dark Troperia is simply the shadow of Troperia.
  • Justified: Dark Troperia really is the shadow cast by Troperia.
  • Inverted: Light Troperia is the "light of life" casted onto Troperia.

  • Subverted: Dark Troperia initially seems to be a dark reflection of Troperia, but the blatant deviations are soon spotted.
  • Double Subverted: ...In actuality, Dark Troperia is a more subtle and metaphorical reflection.
  • Parodied: The only difference between Dark Troperia and Troperia is that everything in the former is dark-colored.
  • Zig Zagged: Some Dark Worlds really are a reflection, and some are just darker places.
  • Averted: There is no shadow worlds, or at least no means to ever access them.
  • Enforced: "We need to show the audience everything has a dark side. How about we make a 'Dark' Troperia?"
  • Lampshaded: "If this world is a shadow, then what's the light that's hitting Troperia?"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: Emperor Evulz recruits solely from Dark Troperia since they're better evil minions.
  • Defied: ???

  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
  • Implied: Airepot seems to follow a similar yet darker progression as Troperia, though nobody is certain why.
  • Deconstructed: Dark Troperia is literally Troperia's shadow, thus it goes through frequent apocalypses whenever The Light is dimmed. Furthermore, Dark Troperia is overall an unstable realm whose bizarre geometry is because of Troperia's reaction to The Light.
  • Reconstructed: Though Dark Troperia may literally be a shadow, it is because of this that Dark Troperia is so hostile to Troperians.
