Tropes Applicable to Me

Tropes I Like

Tropes I Don't Like

  • Ass Pull: It's lazy, plain and simple.
  • Anvilicious: I hate it when a show/movie/game/etc smashes me over the head with it's message, it's really annoying.
  • Designated Hero/Designated Villain: This guy's an asshole, why should I root for him? Especially when the "bad guy" is so much more sympathetic.
  • Jerkass: Mostly if it's a "good guy" (see above). Why should I like/root for this guy when he acts like a dick?
  • Diabolus ex Machina: Writers: "Everthing's going great, lets pull something out of our ass to ruin it!"
  • Fan Hater: These people just unfailingly come of as elitist snobs. If I hate something, I'm not going to bash someone else just because they like it, because that is really dickish. The opposite is also true, I'm not gonna bash someone for not liking something I like and people who do automatically fall into Fan Dumb.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: What's the point in having story end with everthing undone?
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible: When it's done poorly anyway, it just comes of as pretentious and confusing.
  • Karma Houdini: I hate it when the asshole who causes all the problems gets off scot-free.
  • Kafka Komedy: At least when it's done badly, i.e. abusing a character who doesn't deserve it like Meg Griffin or Squidward Tentacles.
  • Too Dumb to Live: When a character is so stupid that it makes me question how they function in society, it stops being funny and/or charming and starts being annoying.
  • Flanderization: When you over-exaggerate a character's trait and leave out the others, it makes them come off as bland and one-note.
  • All Gays Are Pedophiles: Unfortunate Implications much?
  • Bury Your Gays: I hate it when a gay character is killed off as it sends out more Unfortunate Implications.
  • Dawson Casting: Particularly in animation, I find it jarring when a character who is supposed to be a child sound like they're in their thirties.
  • Never My Fault: Dude, I can admit when I've done something wrong, why can't you?
  • Lethally Stupid: It depends on how far it's taken really, but this trope very often leads to the character in question being Unintentionally Unsympathetic, because it's hard to root for someone who's idiocy causes harm to people around them and them never learning from it.
  • Totally Radical: Uuuggghhh... For one, it instantly dates the work in question. Secondly, the slang terms used are almost always ones that nobody ever actually used. Thirdly, it's just annoying. This trope may as well be renamed "Trying Too Hard To Be Cool".
  • Depending on the Writer: This is why I prefer manga to western comics. Since there's so many writers on a western comic, it can lead to things like Plot Holes, Character Derailment/Flanderization and so on. Manga are typically only written by one person and therefore the chance of the previous things happening are much more unlikely (unless that person is just a bad writer to begin with).
  • Broken Aesop/Ignored Epiphany: This is just annoying. It's one of the reasons I don't like Teen Titans Go and modern Family Guy, they act like the characters are going to learn something that'll make them grow as characters, but then at the last second they turn around and show that they have learned nothing.
  • Wife Husbandry: Am I the only one who's disturbed by the idea of a person having having a romantic/sexual relationship with the person they adopted and raised as a child (consensual or not)? Especially if that was their intention from the beginning.

I hope I don't regret posting this stuff. See ya.
