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

No intentional/in-universe examples, ala the Nominal Hero:…

Adam Malkovich became this in Metroid: Other M as he had Samus go through an area of intense heat without letting her use the Varia Suit until a boss fight and later shot her in the back.

The Garbage Pail Kids in the movie terrorize the town on a daily basis with non-formulaic antics and irritating behaviour for no good reason and treat Dodger poorly even when he tries to make sense of them.

Now for an unlisted example:
Leena Toros from Zoids: New Century might be this as to quote the Scrappy Page for Anime:
"She attacks Bit for the slightest infraction, from breaking his back for setting her up on a date with Harry to attacking Bit with her Zoid for accidentally walking in on her in the shower, and attacking her own teammates so that she is the sole winner of the fight."
◦ Who's to say this trope could apply to tsundere characters(who were supposed to be considered heroic) when they take their actions to unheroic reaches(like Minami from Baka and Test).

There are other tropes that can factor to the designated hero:
Jerk Sue:…
Jerk with a Heart of Jerk:…
Jerk Ass(When taken too far):…
Disproportionate Retribution:…
Took a level in Jerk Ass(Again, when taken too far):…
Abusive Parents(Nothing heroic about abuse):…
Alpha Bitch(When taken far enough):
Jerkass Ball(When taken too far):…
Drill Sergeant Nasty(When taken too far):…
No Sympathy(When taken too far):…
Ungrateful Bastard(When overdone):…
Domestic Abuse/Domestic Abuser(Again, nothing heroic about abuse):… /…

I accidentally uploaded something to the wrong folder, anyone mind telling me how to fix it?
ChimeraDragonfang Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
Tell the admins via Note or whatever which piece it is, which folder it's currently in and which folder it should be moved to. I'd move it for you but it seems Contributors don't have that level of control over gallery folder content.

Thank you very much. I always thought the sentence "The group is processing your submission" meant the admins were evaluating it to prevent things like this and to make sure the piece falls within their rules and guidelines.

deviantART not deviantSCANS or deviantSCREENCAPS
I joined this group for interesting content, not illegal screencaps and lazy motivationals.
ChimeraDragonfang Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
I know. :stare: I want to purge all of them because what is that shit even doing on dA in the first place, let alone cluttering up Group galleries. Alas I am but a lowly Contributor and don't have the necessary level of control over gallery submissions to clean them up.

I kind of want to redo the entire gallery setup and/or (mostly "and") take over the Group because right now it's boring and could be so much more, but no one ever responds to my queries.
JZLobo Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Well, if you do manage to rehaul it, let me know. Right now, it sucks, there's nothing worthwhile coming into my message center through it, and I left it this morning.

Oh, good. I didn't have to be the one to say it.
