• 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.

  • While making fun of bad Christmas Cards, Cap'n Wacky has a Fridge Horror moment.
  • This picture made by Jessica "Neondragon" Peffer. When you see it......
    • I don't get it...
      • The tear in the dragon's eye, the stab wound in the female mermaid, the blood on the sword that the male is holding, and the title. The merman is NOT saving the mermaid from the dragon. He's the monster, and the dragon was too late to save her.
  • There's a dating sim for girls on Deviant ART that, depending on which character you end up with, is a cross between Fridge Horror and Body Horror. The dating sim in question is called "Wonderland Days Sim Date" and it's based on Alice in Wonderland. Three characters (the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, and the Caterpillar[who in this is a butterfly]) are turned into Bishies who would make the Furry Fandom drool, and are datable characters. While only one Time Skip out of the three shows the playable character and the datable one (the White Rabbit) having children, it's mildly disturbing to realize that yes, you can have little hybrid children. The prospect of having children with the Caterpillar seems especially scary.
  • Every dating site ever becomes Fridge Horror when you consider that, of all the couples that hook up and have a fulfilling relationship, thanks to the site, a certain percentage of them are going to become living hell for at least one partner involved. Some people (and their children!) will suffer years of emotional and physical trauma, and may possible end up murdered. Of course, this happens without dating sites, but in this troper's mind, dating sites have a certain aspect of Nightmare Fuel: because of the way that the users "Advertise" themselves, a potential abuser can shop for exactly what he wants in a victim, and since they're corresponding digitally at first, may be able to present themself more convincingly than if they and their partner were making first impression in real life.
    • Abusers don't necessarily "shop". They just find patterns that "work" for them, and consciously or unconsciously seek out those patterns in potential partners. Sometimes not even that. People are still much more likely to end up in an abuse relationship that started IRL, since it's still the preferred form of dating. Pleasant dreams!
