Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Once I too was a trainer who had fun during my battles... So you see having fun in battle is foolhardy. A perfect win... that is a Pokémon Trainer's duty."

Gabe: He just killed fifty people with a knife! Okay? That is the last person who should have The Bomb! He's no Modern Warrior. He's a fucking psychopath!

Tycho: He's just doing what works.

Gabe: Yeah, but what about double shotgun dude?

Tycho: Double Shotgun Dude is a dog rapist. On this point, there is consensus.

"And what of the nine-year-old girl? Perhaps she had no business playing in the first place. From Thomas's view, getting her off the machine allowed him to face the opponents he "should" be facing anyway."

"My review isn't going to convince any 2D fighting game fans, as they probably already have this game and are vehemently writing down where I'm supposedly wrong in my review."

"I don't care if it's just a game, there still need to be some standards involved. Filling the Pokedex is an optional part of the game that has no actual reward to it, so the only reason to do it is for personal satisfaction. And if you can be satisfied by having other people do a significant amount of the work for you, then your standards are pretty low. Who cares if it's just a game? Either do something right or don't do it at all."
—A Game FAQs user on what he thinks about completing the Pokedex by trading.

King Dedede: Brawl, huh? Meh. Too bad it doesn't stack up to a game made in 2001. It's floatier than Melee, you can't combo as well, it's way too easy to recover, they took out wavedashing, the air dodge is simplified and the tripping, come on! Definitely a weaker follow-up to Melee, what a shame. Poor, naive Kirby, you don't have a clue.

Kirby: I can make Mario fight Sonic!

Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites.
