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.

Please list tropes alphabetically.

 "What is it?"

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."

 "And I've hurt hurting you...." ~ Merizzle

 "Where the charm is?"

"WHERE... THE..."

"Charm is?"



"...IS. BUT... WE..."

"Know where it is?"


"No, not sadly! Happily, as in 'We know where it is and we're going to tell you really quickly!'"


"Oh, no adjectives, please..." ~ User:Arruruerie

This shall be the norm

Till you receive True Love's first kiss

Then stay in love's true form.
