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.

As the canon of Western mythos and philosophy (despite its Eastern origins), The Bible has influenced fiction since the time of the flood. This supertrope deals with biblical motifs featured in everything from epic poetry to the newest issue of your favorite Shonen Manga.

Compare Hijacked by Jesus for works that bend other religions and their motifs to biblical archetypes. See Crystal Dragon Jesus for works that feature biblical motifs under the guise of separate religions.

For works that explicitly quote The Bible, see As the Good Book Says....

Note: Biblical Motifs begin and end with The Bible. A trope may deal with a Jewish or Christian concepts and still be unrelated to the canon.
