10 Most Revolting TV Tropes

Not all Tropes are bad. A writer, actor, or anyone involved in the production of a piece of media who uses tropes are incapable of original thought. In fact, for my next week's LJ entry, I will gush over my 10 favorite ones. But there are some tropes that are so poorly used, or are just too horrible to exist. Bad tropes aren't limited to the people involved in a piece of work, but they can also describe the interpretations of the people who consume the work.

These are the TV Tropes that make me want to rip my hair out and/or go on a rampage with a sledgehammer whenever I come across them in a work, reading a forum or discussion, or talking with someone about a work. I will admit that some writers have been able to pull off a few of these tropes, and a lot of my favorite video games, TV shows, movies, books, and stories are guilty of one or more of the tropes that I have listed. However, I believe that these tropes just serve to annoy me, even if they don't always kill my enjoyment of a work. I avoided including tropes that are largely disliked, like Mary Sues and Luke, I Am Your Father, but most of the ones that I have included have a lot of hate going against them. So without further ado, here they are in alphabetical order!

WARNING: Thar be spoilers ahead! Don't say that I didn't warn you!
