• 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 Wiki is about tropes, which are conventions and tools in storytelling. But not everything we record are tropes, nor is everything in storytelling tropes. As mentioned below, things that aren't tropes may still be notable enough to get their own pages.

Contrast Omnipresent Tropes, Missing Supertrope, Paratext, No Trope Is Too Common.

Not tropes and not page worthy

These items have no reason to be given their own pages here:

Not worth their own tropes

These items do not have to be split off of already-existing tropes.

Not tropes, but still notable

These items, while not tropes[1], are still interesting facets of storytelling, and worth noting here:

  • Audience Reactions: Emotional and subjective reactions of audiences are on the receiving end of storytelling, and often aimed at by creators.
  • Fan-Speak: Definitions of storytelling and fan terminology.
  • Gushing About Shows You Like: Unlike Complaining, it is usually aimed at by creators and thus notable (and less troublesome), but please keep it to Sugar Wiki.
  • Trivia Trope: These are interesting little facts about stories that don't show up in the story itself.
  • Useful Notes: What you need to know about things in a story, also to debunk common media misconceptions.
