About Us

Describe Tropers group here.
OK, but it will contain lots and lots of spoilers, in-jokes and potholes!
Tropers group is here to spread the power of TV Tropes to the realm of llamas and deviants. We connect our two worlds with just one rule - the Rule of Cool. We search for tropes in our art and we draw Trope-tan the TV Tropes mascot, we illustrate our favorite tropes and draw our Troper Tales or things that bug us.
Aside from that, we are just a cozy place for all tropers here on dA. Make yourself at home and feel free to speak Tropey! This part of intertubes will understand you.
Our gallery doesn't have over nine thousand deviations, but you can't find enough evidence that yes, TV Trope Will Ruin Your Life - but it will do it in a very inspirative sort of way!

For the newcomers:
* Have a look at our gallery system and rules
* Add yourself to the nicknames conversion chart

Remember the Time...
NOBODY 1
"I ever tell you about the time I visited a prison and met this intern who kept leaving the cell doors open? Well, one day, he and his boss got trapped in one of the cells together, and the boss gave the poor guy a really long lecture about how badly he sucked at his job. Before he could tell him he was fired, though, an inmate in the same cell told them both to close the door because he was feeling a draft."
NOBODY 2
"...I don't get it."
NOBODY 1
"Weren't you paying attention?"
NOBODY 2
"To what?"
NOBODY 1
"The story."
NOBODY 2
"Then not really. I was waiting for the punchline."
NOBODY 1
"The story is the punchline; I said the intern kept leaving the cell doors open."
NOBODY 2
"But how did he and his boss get trapped in a cell?"
NOBODY 1
"Comedic stupidity, dude. Comedic stupidity."

What is a...?
A late night program on a dusty TV blips snippets of political campaign hooey. Its lone witness peels the remote from the couch and turns off the TV. He stands up, shakes his head, and stretches to see his wife.
"To think that you watch TV just to see the campaign ads," she says. "You know they're just glorified car commercials, right?"
"Pretty much," he replies with a dangle of his arm. "But it kind of gets me thinking."
"About what?"
He pauses. "What does it mean to be an adult?"
"You mean besides growing up, getting a job, settling down, raising a family, and realizing that contrary to popular belief, the world is neither all bright and kind nor all dark and cruel?"
"Yes: our maturity."
"Really?"
"Yeah."
He slogs his way to the remote and blips the TV to life, wherein an episode of a controversial sitcom showcases a crowd of grown adults griping over a petty squabble.
"Now that I think of it," she muses, fingering her chin, "despite all the talk about 'being the grown up', adults ar

Movie Trailers
You know how sometimes when you see a trailer for a movie, you know immediately that its just spoiled the entire movie? Its a bit annoying, but I got to thinking and realized that they were actually doing me a favor. See, the movies with this sort of trailer are almost always shitty movies that no one in their right mind would ever want to see. So they decided that having you waste your time and money watching that shitty movie, they'd give you all the funny lines, all the cool special effects, and the entire plot in about 15 minutes, free of charge. You didn't want to see the movie, and now you don't need to. Wasn't that nice of them?
Hell, I wish they did that for other products as well. Could you imagine that?
"Hey buddy, you wanna buy this car?"
"No, actually. I don't want to buy that car."
"Of course you don't. This car is a piece of shit. Its a death trap. Only an idiot would want this car. So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna give you all the good features in mob

Fandom-Enraging Misconception

A few examples on the page:

Don't ask for Super Mario Brothers 4, it exists as Super Mario World which was known in Japan as Super Mario World: Super Mario Bros. 4.

Don't Call Link "Zelda"

Don't call the Wumpa Fruits from Crash "Apples" or "Peaches".

Update: It's not Fandom Berserk Button anymore, it's now Fandom-Enraging Misconception.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Examples that aren't on the page but should:
Do not suggest a non-Disney or non-Square Enix Character to appear in  the Kingdom Hearts series, even ones that are licensed for distribution(with the exception of ones between the two companies), YOUR HEART WILL BE RIPPED OUT!!!!!

Do not confuse the arcade game Smash TV with the show Smash or the Smash Bros video games.

Qualidea Code: Canaria is not Ichiya's sister, she's his childhood friend.
•Likewise, it's unwise to get some of the names wrong.

Do not call Link a girl, fans will slash you to pieces for it.

Calling any anime or manga kid stuff is a serious crime, some have content that warrants them higher age ratings.

Kingdom Hearts 3D isn't Kingdom Hearts III, get your facts straight.

Strider isn't the name of a character in Capcom & Moto Kikaku's Strider franchise, it's the name of the hero's profession, the hero is called Hiryu, if Strider was his name, he would've had an S instead of the kanji for Hi(飛).
You may not want to say Mariya is the sister of some one other than Hiryu, it's really a translation error(Hiryu still calls her his sister when he defeats a brainwashed Cain in the NES Game).
The Main Computer for the ZAIN Project isn't Yugdesiral, it's Yggdrasil.
It's not Kain, it's Cain, the letter on his uniform is a C not a K.
The name of the First Main Boss from the first Arcade Game isn't Urobolos, it's Ouroboros.
The name of the Flying Battleship from the Arcade Games is not Ballog, it's Balrog.
Do not call the Asian Letters that restore your health or increase it Chinese, they are really kanji that form Hiryu's name in Japanese.
Do not call the Grandmaster "Lord Eurasia", he was saying "He will never leave Eurasia alive.", his name is Meio.
Do not call Captain Beard Jr. "Captain Hook".
The Red Kuniang Sister isn't named Nam Pooh, SHE'S NAMED BEI POOH!!!  Nam Pooh is the name of the White Pooh Sister.
Herzog Schlange doesn't refer to the mechanical hydra at the end of Strider 2's second stage, it refers to the man riding on a flying platform, also Herzog Schlange is German for Duke Snake, and Duke is a ruling title, the mechanical hydra is actually called the Aluminum Hydra, furthermore, the life bar doesn't deplete if you attack the hydra.
Do not confuse the franchise with Beverly Cleary's Book, Aragorn's alias, or Dave.
Do not call Matic the "Director of the Striders", his Title is Vice Director for crying out loud, the Director Title belongs to Kuramoto.
Do not call the Horseman you encounter in Strider 2 "Metall Hengst", it's the name of the Robot Horse he's riding on.
Cain is not a C-Rank Strider, he's a Super A-Rank Strider, the C is his initial.

Do not call Renegade/Nekketsu Kōha Kunio-kun a Double Dragon rip-off, Renegade was out in 1986 and Double Dragon was out in 1987, they were also made by the same people.

Do not call Kira a bad pilot.

Mario's 180 sideways somersault move's first appearance wasn't in Super Mario 64, it was Donkey Kong for the Game Boy.

Do not call Harvest Moon a FarmVille rip-off or a Farm Town rip-off, you will be buried up to the neck.

Dr. Robotnik wasn't Dr. Eggman's original name, it was a localization change.

Amy Rose didn't debut in Sonic Adventure, she debuted in Sonic CD and before that, an obscure manga.
Fully-voiced dialogue didn't originate in Sonic Adventure either, it originated in SegaSonic the Hedgehog.

Team Chaotix never debuted in Sonic Heroes, they debuted in Knuckles Chaotix

Jake Hunter Detective Story isn't an Ace Attorney rip-off, "it's actually a localization of the latest installment of an older detective game series known as Detective Saburo Jinguji." according to TV Tropes.

Call Final Fantasy Adventure a Link's Awakening rip-off and it really will be your final fantasy.

Do not call Bullet Hell Shooters Touhou rip-offs, the genre began in 1992 with Recca or possibly with 1985 with Gradius, both being long before the Touhou Games started.

Calling Tactics Ogre a Final Fantasy Tactics rip-off will prompt fans to beat you to death with a club.

Do not accuse Pac-Man & the Ghostly Adventures of being a Kirby rip-off, his powers really come from berries, not enemies.
•Also this was never the first time Pac-Man had sclera.

Do not call the Skull Kid from Majora's Mask Majora.
Do not say the events of that game were a dream.

Do not call Phantasy Star "Fantasy Star".
The wizard who fills in the party's last slot in the first Phantasy Star Game is not Noah, it's Lutz(This can be verified in PSIV), also don't call him a woman(That was a mistake in the first game).

Do not call turtles amphibians, they're reptiles.
Do not call Cement Man or the Boxing Robots in Turtles in Time Reshelled original characters for the game, the Boxing Robots were in the actual Arcade Game, while Cement Man was in the First Cartoon.

Thinking an actual remake is really just an homage will not sit well.

Do not call Pseudo-Palutena from Kid Icarus Uprising the real one, it's outright stated in the idol description, also pseudo can mean false in Greek.
Do not call the Magnus & Gaol you've fought prior copies, if Gaol was a copy, you wouldn't have heard her real voice, also do not claim they were dead all along.

Gryzor wasn't the Japanese name for the original Contra, it was the European Title.

Do not call Metroid: Zero Mission a prequel, it's really a remake, if you do, you'll be blasted to pieces.
