• 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 a Just For Fun page

This is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek approach to certain tropes that will never be agreed upon by the community, either due to being absolutely universal, pointless, far too subjective, Complaining About Shows You Don't Like, or The Same but More.

Compare Lousy Alternate Titles for titles that will never happen.

Too Universal / People Sit on Chairs


Tom Siddell: It's when a character says something to another character in a story, and then later a different character says a thing that has nothing to do with that other thing.


"Alright, I see your quarter and raise you a stick of gum."
"Ooh, high roller!"

Articles That Will Never Self-Demonstrate

Tropes That Will Never Be On Echo Chamber

  4. Also known as: Needs More Hate
  5. I meant History
  6. Let's assume that any article about self-demonstrating articles does self-demonstrate. Therefore Self-Demonstrating Article is a self-demonstrating article, proving the assumption true. Now, let's assume that any such article doesn't self demonstrate. Therefore Self-Demonstrating Article is not self-demonstrating, and the assumption is again true.
  7. Boxer shorts notwithstanding
