• 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.



There are tropes. There are subjectives. And there are these, the uber debatable.

These trope can cause a ton of arguments, so if they are used, either go to the appropriate page for them and add examples there, or add them to YMMV tabs, but be careful when using these in real life, as they can ignite a real firestorm.

Character Alignment Tropes

The Character Alignment tropes can be objective for something like Dungeons & Dragons or if Word of God clearly stated these tropes applied to their work.

Thus, for all of these, the rule is simple: Only list examples from works that have explicit alignment systems.

Other Flame Bait Tropes

We don't have any rules for using these tropes. Use them at your own risk.
