This is simply what you think is the (not some of the, the) best example of any trope (an objective trope, not subjective, since this already is subjective). The "Crowning Example" if you will.

There could be several reasons you think an example is the best.

  • You thinks it's the best in terms of illustrating the trope.
  • You think it's the most well done.
  • It's your favorite play in that trope.
  • You just really like the source material.

Oh, and each troper gets one example per trope, no more. Also, don't go "no, this is," or phrases like that. This is about our own personal favorites.

  Gendo Ikari: "The lady you have drugged is the daughter of one of my scientists. Allow me to introduce you to her security detail."

 Woman: Father McGrath... I thought you were dead.

Fr. McGrath: I was!

  Vita: "This is what Eisen and I are best at. You know that? Destroying and smashing. The Knight Vita of the Iron Hammer, and the Steel Count Graf Eisen. There's nothing in this world we can't destroy."

  "The only limit is your imagination... and your twisted sense of humor."

 Captain Hammer: 'Cause she's with Captain Hammer. And these -- [lifts fists] -- are not the hammer. [walks out]

Dr. Horrible: ...

Captain Hammer: [walks back in] ...The hammer is my penis.

  "You're a... *pauses, thinks for a moment, stands up and walks over to the wall to lean against it while half-smirking* ...guest of the Master Control Program."

 -Elliot: Who's this...guy? I think?


  1. The first divulged into camp A LOT. The re-imagining was so dark that Sci-Fi often had the writers tone it down.
  2. Suppose your first ever exposure to the Batman franchise was the campy 60s television show. Then someone mentions to you, "Hey, did you know that they made a film version of this?" and hands you a DVD of The Dark Knight. Yeah, that's kind of like how Power Rangers RPM compares to its Super Sentai source material and the Power Rangers franchise as a whole.
  3. Judai crosses it in Season 3 and spends Season 4 on the other (dark, gloomy) side
  4. Except in the one national election she actually ran in
  5. Because We Couldn't Get Tina Fey
