All The Tropes:Not a Trope
This Wiki is about tropes, which are conventions and tools in storytelling. But not everything we record are tropes, nor is everything in storytelling tropes. As mentioned below, things that aren't tropes may still be notable enough to get their own pages.
Not tropes and not page worthy
These items have no reason to be given their own pages here:
- Complaining About Shows You Don't Like/Creator Bashing: We are not a wiki for bashing things anyway, and nothing meaningful or interesting can come from ranting.
- People Sit on Chairs: Meaningless things that occur incidentally are not notable.
- Too Rare to Trope: Something very rare most likely is coincidence rather than convention. Ditto for something extremely complex.
Not worth their own tropes
These items do not have to be split off of already-existing tropes.
- The Same but More: Trope X Up to Eleven is still Trope X. Ditto for Trope X Done Well and Trope X Done Badly, unlike in Audience Reactions.
- The Same but More Specific: If the additional distinction doesn't make some new meaning, it's not enough to make a Sub-Trope of a current trope. Trope X written by creator Y is still Trope X, for example.
Not tropes, but still notable
These items, while not tropes, are still interesting facets of storytelling, and worth noting here:
- Audience Reactions: Emotional and subjective reactions of audiences are on the receiving end of storytelling, and often aimed at by creators.
- Gushing About Shows You Like: Unlike Complaining, it is usually aimed at by creators and thus notable (and less troublesome), but please keep it to Sugar Wiki.
- Trivia Trope: These are interesting little facts about stories that don't show up in the story itself. These are often collected onto Trivia subpages of works.
- Useful Notes: What you need to know about things in a story, also to debunk common media misconceptions. Subtypes include:
- Fan-Speak: Definitions of storytelling and fan terminology.
- unless they are in-universe examples
