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.

Okay, now you're just being silly.


Some real-world firearms just look so cool people have to put them in things to show how awesome they are. In some cases, so much so that they appear more than in real life and / or in the wrong places, but this page is for the rest; cool guns that generally do belong where they are, are Justified by internal backstory, or hidden under Hollywood embellishments. Regardless, these are the weapons that are often given that special close-up, spot on the cover, or speech extolling their virtues. Frequently, the real gun isn't quite as cool to actually use as fictional depictions would have you believe. Cool Guns may even have pride of place as a BFG or Hand Cannon, or at least be depicted as similarly awesome; this is particularly true if they have any unusual characteristics. If they do, this is a Cool Action, and will be listed with the weapon.

This trope also includes the guns so widely used that you just can't get away without having them, since these too often get special attention from the cameraman. If not, they're just regular guns; the ones that are there purely because someone needs to fire something at someone else.
