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.

Demonic Spiders: Proving that adventure is over-rated since the invention of video games.


  • Pretty much any enemy in Lightning Warrior Raidy that has either a magical or fire breath attack, because armor doesn't reduce the damage they incur. Adding to the annoyance is the fact that you can only restore health with potions, meaning that you can survive the battle and still hurt your long-term game plan because you took so much damage beating them.
  • The title monster in D/Generation is a dark, shapeshifting humanoid that will hide as a file cabinet or fire extinguisher until you walk close—at which point it will chase and decapitate you even if it has to follow you onto another map. If you don't have any grenades, or if you (very likely) waste them all thanks to the fact you can only fire in four rigid directions, the only way to kill it is to run through some environmental hazards and hope that it gets hit and you don't.
  • The fairly-obscure Puzzle Platformer Game Boy game Dexterity plays with an overhead view. You need to flip over all of the tiles on the level to advance (which is sped up by sandwiching blank tiles between them). Anyway, the Demonic Spiders are Humphreys, a fast, erratically-moving enemy that can create wall tiles and if you let them do it in the wrong place, they'll wall off tiles that you need to flip. A level late in the game has two Humphreys, making it That One Level.
