• 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.


This a Just For Fun page

You'd be surprised how fun it is to run around as a LEGO Boba Fett blowing stuff up.

A wise man once said, "Any story, no matter how good, will sound really, really dumb when you shorten it to a few sentences."

So you love a series. You own all the volumes, have various merchandise, can quote characters off the top of your head, and know every plot twist by heart.

However, one day someone asks the dreaded question "What's this about?" And suddenly it hits you—trying to sum it up in only a few sentences makes it sound really really ridiculous, and though the show itself may take itself entirely seriously, suddenly all the random parts, nonsensical aspects and just plain weirdness are laid bare before you.

But really, it's Better Than It Sounds once you actually see it in action.

This is the place to record those descriptions—the random, the understated, and the WTF.[1] This isn't "Sum up your favorite movie in one sentence!" (We've already got each movie's respective Laconic page for that), rather it is for the summaries that would make a person say "This would never sell!". This is not They Fight Crime, since those shows have an inherently ridiculous concept as part of the catch—these are only made ridiculous by us mentioning things out of context.

To keep it interesting, put the name of the series in spoiler tags, disable autospoiler when visiting, and keep this from becoming Complaining About Shows You Don't Like; it's actually Making Fun Of Things You Do Like. And most of all, have fun.

Important Note: This is a game, not a proper trope. Please don't use it as an entry on a work page.

Contrast Worse Than It Sounds.

  1. Obviously not the only such place; this is just one of many interpretations of the same theme that exist. But that's never stopped us before.
