  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Even this wiki isn't immune to this:
    • Often, a quote for a trope entry or a page quote will be listed incorrectly, especially if it's on multiple pages.
    • Many quotes will be presented in This. Is. Sparta. format when it wasn't said like that. This is partly why the trope was renamed to Punctuated! For! Emphasis!.
  • Colbert Bump:
    • This has happened on this very wiki! (Not repeatedly, though): after TV Tropes was mentioned in xkcd, a mob of newbies washed over the forums and wiki, trashing the servers.

    • Through the nature of Wiki Walking, TV Tropes itself has a tendency to give support to YouTube videos that illustrate a certain trope. These videos would otherwise probably fall into YouTube obscurity, and thus you may see a top comment saying "Who else got here from TV Tropes?"
  • Creator Backlash: Many longtime tropers are ashamed of the former Troper Tales and Fetish Fuel sections of the site, and for good reason. The entries there were so... uh, off-color, giving way Too Much Information about the tropers who posted there, that they damn near dragged this site's reputation down to the level of 4chan. Thankfully, it was removed and will never come back. The two sections were moved to separate sites, which are now both offline.
  • Demand Overload: The site nearly ran into this during The Google Incident.

  • Dummied Out: Using the "view source" button on some pages here will reveal commented-out lines in the wiki markup (lines which begin with %% are comments). At times, these may include examples that were hidden because they didn't meet the Wiki standards, but weren't completely removed in hopes that some troper, someday, would save them.
