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.

Id Software's series of gritty, (generally) Cyberpunk-ish First-Person Shooter 3D eng... er, games, noted for their industry leading graphics, their fast paced multi-player matches, and their placement firmly on the "unrealistic" end of the Fackler Scale of FPS Realism. Quake is the Spiritual Successor to the Doom series, with all that entails.

The games which compose the franchise are the following:


Quake was one of the first major franchises to go big with licensing its engine to third parties, creating games like SiN, Soldier of Fortune and Half Life, as well as later Medal of Honor and Dark Forces titles, and the first two Call of Duty games (and, on a darker note, Daikatana and one of the incarnations of Duke Nukem Forever.)


The following tropes are common to many or all entries in the Quake (series) franchise.
For tropes specific to individual installments, visit their respective work pages.

Secret Area. You crazy rocket jumpers!

    • In the Quake II expansion pack The Reckoning there's an area with an Invulnerability item which will vanish when you come closer, of course, by rocket jumping:

No reward for you, jumper!

    • Many maps in Quake III Arena and Live are designed to reward skilled users of the technique. In the latter, there's even a tutorial!
    • Even in Quake 1, it was useful. In the two last levels before the boss of the first episode, rocket jumping could skip half of the level, and even lead to a quad damage item.
  • Slash Command: One of the earliest series examples, if not the earliest.
  • Speed Run
  • Splash Damage: The rocket launcher. Against fast targets, it's actually more effective to aim at the ground near rather than trying to hit directly.
