    To quote the TV Trope homepage:
    "Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations. On the whole, tropes are not clichés. The word clichéd means "stereotyped and trite."

    The Starscream "So treacherous he actually gets a chin to stroke!"

    A nice counter to the unresearched and shoddily written 'Top Ten' lists that have been popping up lately. :D

    TVTropes is the online equivalent of Lays potato chips - you can't read just one.
