Let's see some of these, and try to sort them properly. (Had no idea this page actually had any discussion on it). Hmmm, moot point in some cases, having been outright removed. Let's try to add some of these back in, with proper sorting and corrections...

They should all be sorted alphabetically instead of being jammed into a supertrope and some of them need more explanation like Non-Elemental.

Yea. Let's nix these supertropes.

Adding more explanations, and sorting by ABC... (Not even gonna try putting some of these longer supertropes back in)

Yet more subbullets misuse:

Again, needs more proper treatment:

  • Soundtrack Dissonance.
  • Space Whale Aesop: Likely many of the morals taught by the game.
    • A Green Aesop is "don't pollute or the Earth with turn into a black hole, and God will need to split existence in half."
    • The Chain of Harm. "Don't hurt living things. It has no side effect on you, but they tend to take it out on weaker things, who in turn take it out on weaker things, until that single action causes some chain reaction that kills off the mice (possibly causing an insect infestation)."

This needs a more proper example use:

  • Painting the Fourth Wall: More specifically, some of its subtropes:
    • Art Shift.
    • Deliberately Monochrome: The Void world has much of the landscape in grey, with the characters in Splash of Color.
    • Also Interface Screw: mainly Ambrosia, when hit by confuse or blind (possibly justified, since she is the leader, after all).
      • Outside of controls however, the game functions are constantly tweaked (such as the day/night system being tweaked by the Void world so if you stay too long outside you die, or the weather system changing due to seasons, or some of the assumed game rules being bypassed by certain effects).

This section needs a more proper sorting:

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
