Sum This Up in One Trope

    Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

    Some works are really complex. Trying to explain them is like trying to tell the sky stop raining purple droplets of sugar-coated chocolate pieces go very nicely when you crush them through a toothpaste tube.

    Then, there are these. A work with a single trope so central to it, that when said trope is mentioned, the work is the first thing that comes to mind. Enjoy!

    Note: Very often, these will be Trope Codifiers or Trope Namers.

    Compare X Meets Y.
