Hello fellow Pop Culture Enthusiasts! It’s time for another tropes post! I hope you guys are ready for some amazing facts. Now, let’s begin!
- Serial Killer: A dark, but morbidly fascinating trope that’s used in multiple forms of media. It depicts a character, possibly mentally unstable, who kills multiple people. Some examples (not using depictions of real life examples), include; Lucy from the ultra-violent manga and anime, Elfen Lied. She is completely malicious, and slaughters multiple people with her demonic powers. Next, there’s Mr. Zsasz from the Batman Series. He’s one of the more psychopathic prisoners of Arkham Asylum. His body is covered in scars, which represent the amount of people he has killed. Lastly, there’s Dexter from the show of the same name. He’s a unique case, in that he only kills Serial Killers.
Lucy: Cute but extremely dangerous.
- Up To Eleven: An incredibly common trope that occurs in many forms of media. It happens when some type of event or tragedy increases power or effect. Some examples include; Most of the cast of the manga/anime series, Eyeshield 21. This is an amazing football series that insanely increases stereotypical bullies and jocks into super humans. Next, we have the Ludicrous Speed dial from Spaceballs. Lastly, there’s the Are you Nuts?! speed on Jimmy Neutron’s Jetpack.
