genre /ʒ'ɒnrə/—A genre is a particular type of literature, painting, music, film, or other art form which people consider as a class because it has special characteristics. (Though, of course, genres are not necessarily mutually exclusive, and many series do straddle multiple genres). The items on this list attempt to define these characteristics.
In our terms, a genre is a work that shares a set of tropes in common with other members of the same class. They don't all have to use the exact same tropes the exact same way, but they share the same set of conventions. See Genre Tropes for a list of these conventions.
