• 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.



Ben Schrider

The onwer of a sports store in Rustvale with a right prosthetic leg.

  • Actually Pretty Funny: When he finds out that Bill lied to him about being Jimmy Fitzsimmons, instead of being angry at his deception which caused him to falsely accuse an innocent (albeit incredibly probelmatic) child of theft, he laughs it off and basically burries the hatchet with Bill.
    * Ambiguously Jewish: He is bald, wears spectacles, and has a yiddish voice, yet it is never stated if he is a Hebrew man.
    * Everyone Has Standards: While he has absolved Bill for robbing him at that point, he is utterly shocked at seeing Big Bill abuse his grandson.
    * Handicapped Badass: Downplayed as loosing his prothetic leg makes him unable to catch up to Bill and Phillip when they rob his store.
    * Jerkass Has A Point: A somewhat unsympathetic man though he may be, anyone would be mad if someone else tried to rob them of something that's not rightfully theirs.
    * Lack Of Empathy: When Bill tells him why he can't afford a hockey stick, he just pitilessly fires back at him by mentioning his dismembered leg.
