If you are a hypothetico-deductivist, this makes a lot of sense, since you cannot prove anything, only refute it. Much the reason why science is just a lot of conjecture, but is getting better due to how hypotheses are constantly tested and made more rigorous.

Killed some Mooks? No problem, it's not like they matter.

television tropes
Introduction
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."
 
In other words, dull and uninteresting. We are not looking for dull and uninteresting entries. We are here to recognize tropes and play with them, not to make fun of them.

The wiki is called "TV Tropes" because TV is where we started. Over the course of a few years, our scope has crept out to include other media. Tropes transcend television. They reflect life. Since a lot of art, especially the popular arts, does its best to reflect life, tropes are likely to show up everywhere.
