Voted the most addictive website in the entire universe, it lists every form of media under the sun and every “trope” - characteristic, writing trick, cliché - associated with it.

Despite claims of it covering every form of media, the site often gives us the impression it consists mostly of references to Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Trek, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. (Admittedly, it did diversify and professionalize a great deal during the 2010s.)

Noted for putting names to things of the 'you know, that thing where…' variety, which is a double-edged sword as they substitute independent thought and other posters see you as a geek.

Zyzzyva introduced the forum to TV Tropes and since then quite a few people (most prominent: Thande and Hendryk, but also Max Sinister [until his ban there in 11/2022] and others) have become addicted, which probably makes him a Magnificent Bastard running a Xanatos Gambit, or something.

Also, tropes have found their ways into The Series episodes, e.g. the title of “ZE POORLY-DISGUISED PILOT”.

It's the origin of the concept of Swiftian Fae Monarchism.

Thande spearheaded an effort to get the Series on the site as a means of raising awareness, which he codenamed “Operation Death's Head”. As a result, at least one forum member actually discovered through TV Tropes, including LordMoogi. In the wake of Death's Head, TV Tropes now plays host to pages for many of's timelines as well as The Series, see below.

If you are one of those people who have a problem with their moderation team - there are perfectly fine alternatives, like The True Tropes Wiki, so there's no need to complain.
