What Common Trope Are You

A trope is a common or overused theme or device in storytelling. It can be a plot device, character type, or even a visual cue. Tropes are often used to create familiarity with the audience and can be used to convey information quickly. For example, the "damsel in distress" trope is a common plot device where a female character is put in danger and needs to be rescued by the male hero. This trope has been used in countless movies and TV shows.
