Snoo, the time-traveling alien mascot of Reddit.
Reddit is a very large news aggregator similar to Digg or Fark. Its structure is based around "subreddits", separate topic-specific aggregators which can be easily created.
Although Reddit isn't a wiki, The Wiki Rule is in full effect here, since users have the power to create their own subreddits on pretty much any topic. In fact, it is probably because of this very aspect of Reddit that it has proven to be actually more addictive than TV Tropes. Don't believe us? Here, try it for yourself, but don't say we didn't warn you.
And yes, there's a TV Tropes subreddit (although you might already have noticed that if you're on desktop and you pay attention to the sidebar).
open/close all folders
A to C
- Accentuate the Negative: Subreddits dedicated to mockery (like /r/thathappened or /r/cringe), especially the former, which expresses mocking disbelief towards almost anything. Extreme examples of this are in turn mocked by /r/nothingeverhappens.
- Addled Addict: r/tooktoomuch showcases people appearing to be under the influence of various substances engaging in bizarre behavior.
- Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: /r/holdmybeer is a collection of gifs depicting people performing comically ill-thought-out acts, generally titled "HMB while I [action]".
- The Alleged Car: /r/Shitty_Car_Mods/ is all about this, and /r/Justrolledintotheshop is mostly about attempts to fix similar disasters on wheels.
- Alt Text: /r/AskReddit's snoo says "Ass Credit" when hovered over.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: The best case scenario for an /r/entitledparents story, where the poor kid will either look like they want to die because of their parent's narcissism-by-proxy-induced idiocy or calling them out for being terrible, at times apologizing for their parents' stupidity even though it's not their fault.
- Anti-Climax: In March , dont_stop_me_smee posted this gallery showing a locked safe. 9 Months later, somebody finally got it open and inside was a spider.
- Artifact Title:
- /r/AdviceAnimals took its name from the "Advice Dog" image macro, which is now virtually non-existent. Not all of them have animals and most don't give any advice except the "Advice Mallard".
- /r/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu is named after the expression for rage, as the subreddit is for Rage Comics. However, they no longer always involve rage.
- /r/TikTokCringe was originally for only posting cringe content from TikTok, but it later allowed all content from TikTok to be posted, and now there are typically more comedy and wholesome videos than cringe.
- April Fools' Day:
- In , the Subreddits for /r/Soccer and /r/NFL switched flairs. Hilarity ensued.
- On April 1st, , Reddit posted a blog post stating that it has purchased Team Fortress 2 and would be implementing its gameplay into the standard Reddit experience. The TF2 blog, on the other hand, stated the opposite.
- On the same day, /r/StarWarsand/r/StarTrek switched backgrounds, to much confusion.
- On April 1st, , there was much buzz on /r/AssassinsCreed about Ubisoft announcing that Watch_Dogs was the real title of their secretive Assassin's Creed: Comet project. Having apparently forgotten what day it was, the excitement even spilled over into /r/Gaming. Funnily enough, when the game was released, it was confirmed that it does, in fact take place in the same universe as Assassin's Creed.
- In , the Subreddits for Homestuck and Steven Universe swapped places for the day, similarly to So /r/homestuck led to the Steven Universe Subreddit and vice-versa. This led to many confused fans on both ends. Both of the Subreddits lampshaded this. Steven Universe's "users here now" counter read "X confused homestucks" and Homestuck's read "X wondering if Steven Universe ever really existed in the first place".
- Similarly, in , the subreddits for Danganronpa and Five Nights at Freddy's switched places. User flairs for some of the FNAF characters are even still available on r/danganronpa!
- Also in , the staff created a subreddit called "the button" (/r/thebutton) which featured a prominent button, which you could click or not click. The button was attached to a timer counting down from At whatever time you clicked, the button would reset- for everyone- and you would be given a flair based on that number. Soon, two sides emerged, pressers and non-pressers. By the second, there were over twenty factions.
- Elsewhere on Reddit, /r/TwitchPlaysPokemon, in a moment of Fun with Acronyms, changed their page and posted on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
- For , the DataIsBeautiful subreddit became a shrine to Data from Star Trek.
- For , A subreddit called /r/place opened, a public canvas where you could place a coloured pixel of your choosing every 5 minutes, but placed pixels could be overridden with another. Just like the button, several factions appeared almost immediately.
- In , r/polandball temporary bans drawing in the traditional ball based method.
- Also in , r/animemes and r/historymemes swapped, resulting in the surprising creation of a large number of history-based anime memes.
- Reddit's founders, Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman, admitted to submitting links under various usernames when the site first launched to make it look like it there were more people using it than there actually were.
- If a heavily downvoted comment gets gilded, it's common for the poster in question of gilding themselves with an alternate account. This mindset applies even more so if it's an admin's comment.
- Given the subject matter of /r/conspiracy, it's probably not all that surprising to see every other comment accusing someone of either this or malicious LARPing, especially when a particular conspiracy theory gains enough traction.
- As You Know Any sort of TIL (Today I Learned) or "lifehack" threads will either be genuinely informative, or something that's already common knowledge or generic tricks we all learned in our childhood.
- Bait-and-Switch: Because you can make a subreddit for almost any type of content with nearly any kind of title, you can come up with a fake subreddit name to bait people into clicking on a dead link. /r/SubsIFellFor documents such instances. Conversely, /r/SubsIThoughtIFellFor are for instances where someone expects a link to a non-existent subreddit, only to discover it's real.
- Banned from Argo: You can and will be banned from /r/relationships for posting anything from that subreddit to SubredditDrama, and Word of God from their moderators confirms this.
- On a more sour note, several subreddits use bots to ban anyone who posts in certain other subreddits.
- Based on a Dream: r/somnivexillology, where people post flags they see in dreams, and r/thomastheplankengine for memes seen in dreams. The latter tend to be verySurreal Humor.
- Becoming the Mask: Quite a few subreddits that were initially designed to mock or parody certain behaviors end up becoming shrines to what they were mocking and sometimes it can be hard to tell if this is what has happened.
- Belief Makes You Stupid: How /r/atheism views religious people (mostly Christians). Its sizable hatedom considers /r/atheism this, as well.
- Berserk Button:
- /r/shitredditsays, since it's a haven for snarky feminists, and really hates jokes about rape. The subreddit also has a low tolerance for Black Comedy, sex jokes, racial humor, and transphobia. It flies both ways - mentions of SRS on other subreddits garners outrage and anger over "SJW"s.
- A mention of Colby the Dog will receive numerous responses of 'EVERY THREAD' or similar.
- The firing of a popular admin responsible for the celebrity AMAs prompted many subreddits to temporarily go private in protest.
- Several political views have the potential to trigger this when expressed.
- Bittersweet Ending: The Colby the Dog story ends up like this. The poster and his wife get back together and the son sees a therapist over what happened, but the dog has to be sold.
- Bold Inflation: Several subreddits have all of their text in allcaps and/or bolded font, whether as a subreddit rule or forced with CSS coding. /r/spacedicks has allcapital titles and comments as a subreddit rule, and comments posted that contain lowercase letters will be responded to with "WHAT CAN'T HEAR YOU". /r/FondantHate, a community dedicated to the hatred of the use of fondant on cakes, uses CSS styling to force all of its text to be in allcaps Arial Bold font.
- Boss Battle: /r/bossfight posts pictures of strange objects, sculptures, animals, and costumes and gives them subtitles to present them as bosses in a video game or role-playing campaign.
- Bothering by the Book: The essential theme of /r/MaliciousCompliance. This is where the OP is told to do something by a boss, friend, teacher, cop, etc. or else. But whatever the OP is asked to do, it's done as literally as possible. This always ends with the target of OP's wrath getting in some kind of trouble when they either didn't think through the implications of what they were asking for or end up getting just enough metaphorical rope to hang themselves with.
- Brain Bleach: /r/eyebleach for washing away memories of /r/wtf or /r/fiftyfifty.
- Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: This post:
If you go on the goddamn internet it will still be "Did you check the weather/mail/bank account/for missing children/on whatever cause she presently is interested in?"
- Broken Aesop: If you visit /r/relationships, this is almost certainly expected, and lampshaded frequently.
- Broken Pedestal: /u/unidan was a biologist almost universally loved by Reddit until an incident in when he lost his temper and it was revealed he had been using alternate accounts to manipulate votes in his favour. He's now mostly just another in-joke (don't mention jackdaws), but many users still seem to mourn the loss.
- Butt-Monkey: /r/SequelMemes (subreddit for the Star Wars sequels) is widely made fun of across the website because of the ubiquity of /r/PrequelMemes (its prequel counterpart). It doesn't help that a sizable amount of Sequel Memes' userbase hates the sequels rather than celebrates them.
- Cats Are Mean: Cats show up a lot in /r/AnimalsBeingJerks, and jerks show up a lot in /r/CatSlaps. To be fair, cats show up in /r/AnimalsBeingBros as well.
- Choosy Beggar: /r/ChoosingBeggars/ is all about this. The subreddit is dedicated to text messages, social media posts, etc. of people who are in clear need of something, but are being incredibly picky or have impossible standards for whatever they want. For instance, a relatively common kind of post in the subreddit is a person who is looking for a potential romantic partner, but had a list of "must-haves" that is either impossible to achieve or self-contradictory.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Many, although _vargas_ is one of the most popular.
- Cluster F-Bomb: /r/fuck Is full to the brim with this.
- Comeback Tomorrow: The /r/staircasewit subreddit provides a place for users to place these thoughts.
- Comically Missing the Point: When a Redditor does this in response to another user's post, it's known as "the ol' Reddit switcharoo" [sic]. A long list of these is maintained, with each one linking to the next.
- Conspiracy Theorist: A fairly common sight in political threads.
- Contagious Laughter: /r/ContagiousLaughter is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. It's videos of people laughing or doing funny things, only for everyone around them (and hopefully, the viewer) to start laughing with them.
- Cool Car: /r/Spotted, among others, is all about posting pictures of awesome vehicles.
- This◊ is an actual NASCAR car sponsored by Reddit.
- Cool Plane: many, both fictional and real, but one particular case is the SR Every time it gets mentioned - every time - someone will post that story about the speed check. It got to the point it's now an inside meme, and the SR eventually got its own subreddit.
- Cordon Bleugh Chef: /r/ididnthaveeggs/ collects complaints from people who made stupid substitutions in online recipes and then complain that they didn't turn out well, because it's obviously the recipe's fault if they didn't follow it.
- Creepypasta: r/nosleep is Reddit's equivalent, though the mods scrub away badly-written examples.
- Crime of Self-Defense: This monstrosity from r/NoahGetTheBoat.
- Cringe Comedy: Several subs, including /r/cringe, /r/cringepics, or /r/cringetopia collect unintentional examples, though they have some accusations going against them of being too mean-spirited.
- Cut Short: The infamous 'tree fiddy' (a South Park reference) stories posted by /u/thehealeroftri (and others) open with a typically believable, interesting premise, then right before the climax of the story, typically involve one of the main characters asking for $, then turning into a prehistoric animal and swimming away.
- Cute Kitten: See /r/cats, /r/aww, etc.
- Cute Little Fangs: /r/CuteLittleFangs
D to F
- The Dandy: /r/malefashionadvice is often accused of this; either they encourage a boring "uniform" look or they drift too far down "fashion-conscious" and into "effeminate".
- Delusions of Eloquence: Like Know-Nothing Know-It-All, r/justneckbeardthings, r/thathappened, r/notliketheothergirls, and especially r/iamverysmart chronicle a lot of real-life examples of this.
- Didn't Think This Through: The "Win Stupid Prizes" subreddit. It involves people doing things that any sane person could tell is a bad idea (playing a stupid game), only for this decision to result in predictably bad consequences (winning a stupid prize). Frequent targets of mockery include doing dangerous stunts with clearly unsafe equipment, sticking fireworks anywhere close to a human body, or trying to pick a fight with a clearly superior opponent.
- Dirty Cop: Cops are one of Reddit's Acceptable Professional Targets. There isn't a day that goes by without a YouTube video being posted of a cop chokeholding or bodyslamming someone. It's enough to turn the most strident law-and-order hardliner into an anarchist. Often redditors have to remind themselves that most cops are not so cruel as the ones shown.
- Disco Dan: /r/music is widely derided for its focus on classic rock. /r/lewronggeneration mocks internet denizens who complain about modern music, and frequently yearn for simpler times, before they were born.
- Disproportionate Retribution: The whole point of /r/pettyrevenge.
- Dogs Are Dumb: A common joke on /r/DogShowerThoughts, though it tends to go hand in hand with Dumb Is Good.
- Dude, Not Funny!: invoked SRS is an entire subreddit dedicated to this reaction to various ostensibly bigoted jokes on the site.
- Dramatic Irony: /r/LeopardsAteMyFace is all about headlines showcasing people who rally for something, only to see this decision backfire on them. For instance, people who voted for a political policy without thinking through the full implications of what it would mean if the policy was ever enacted are a frequent source of humor.
- Dreadful Musician: /r/CrappyMusic is full of them.
- Drives Like Crazy: /r/IdiotsInCars/ is full of reckless driving and/or car crashes from people who refuse to obey the rules of the road.
- Eagleland: /r/MURICA parodies Type 2. There's several subreddits out there dedicated to bashing America, and it's not uncommon to see anger over the Pledge of Allegiance. Ironically, a lot of the users of these subreddits are American themselves.
- Early Installment Weirdness:
- Subreddits weren't introduced until , 3 years after the site launched.
- AskReddit questions were previously more personal, and could ask for assistance.
- The Eeyore: /r/2meirl4meirl, which is mostly reposting suicidal, extremely self-loathing, and nihilistic reposts from Tumblr and elsewhere, mixed in with pleas for death. It's like Shinji Ikari, Marvin the Paranoid Android, and Eeyore ruining all your favorite tumblr posts.
- Enemy Mine: They have a long-standing rivalry with 4chan, mainly due to being accused of forcing Advice Animals and stealing 4Chan memes (in some instances, they did steal, but in others, they didn't). But when 9GAG started gaining steam and started taking credit for copied memes from both sites, they put aside their mutual dislike of each other to combine forces to take 9GAG down.
- In a way, they and 4Chan can be seen as Vitriolic Best Buds because while they both most assuredly take potshots at each other on site, many of the users frequent both sites, whether they want to admit it or not.
- Epic Fail: /r/therewasanattempt documents these.
- Erudite Stoner: /r/StonerPhilosophy. At times.
- Eskimos Aren't Real: There's an infamous post by a person who grew up believing that Finland isn't a real country, explaining that his parents convinced him that Finland was in was just an elaborate conspiracy created by Japan to get around fishing regulations. The post eventually led to the creation of an entire (satirical) subreddit dedicated to exposing the "Finland conspiracy".
- Even the Guys Want Him: If a photo of a sufficiently attractive male appears, there will be several comments about going gay for him. Multiply that by about for Ridiculously Photogenic Guy.
- Everyone Has Standards: /r/jesuschristreddit, which collects offensive, often out of context comments for redditors to make fun of.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Novelty accounts, users who always post with a gimmick, generally have usernames that say exactly what they do. For example, Sure_Ill_Draw_That posts a drawing of whatever comment he replies to, and Your_Post_As_A_Movie will turn random pictures posted by redditors into movie posters (replete with taglines).
- Exact Words: /r/MaliciousCompliance is filled with stories about redditors spiting rude or obnoxious people by following their requests to the letter, typically leading to a disastrous result they had not anticipated.
- Face Palm: /r/FacePalm is for posts that elicit this reaction.
- Felony Misdemeanor: Each sub has its own set of rules for conduct on top of Reddit's sitewide rules, and their enforcement is at the moderator team's discretion. Different subs may have considerably different standards for what warrants a temporary or permanent ban, including offenses that would receive only post deletion and/or a warning in other places, and let's leave it at that.
- Five-Finger Discount: /r/shoplifting was dedicated to this trope, prior to it being banned. They even had an arch-nemesis in the form of /r/lossprevention.
- Food Porn: /r/FoodPorn and /r/DessertPorn. /r/Cooking, as well. /r/ShittyFoodPorn is intended to be something like Food Gorn, but unless the posted edibles are truly atrocious, there'll be at least one redditor commenting how they'd gladly eat that.
- For Great Justice: The spirit of /r/KarmaCourt, a subreddit for trials of redditors who have committed various "karma crimes" on Reddit such as claiming another's work as their own, or lying for karma.
- Frequently-Broken Unbreakable Vow: /r/SubredditDrama has a rule against voting down comments in linked threads. However, when a thread is linked, the loser in the argument tends to accumulate a suspiciously low voting total. SRS also has a similar policy against participating in linked threads, but is also frequently accused of brigading.
- Fridge Logic: Invoked with /r/Showerthoughts, for all those odd thoughts you get from pondering too much. Also goes along with Fridge Brilliance and Fridge Horror.
- From Clones to Genre: /r/PrequelMemes started out as just that, a subreddit for memes of the Star Wars Prequels. From there, other meme subreddits devoted to the other parts of the Star Wars saga began to pop up. In short time, various other fandoms began to create their own meme subs, and many of them have become large subs in their on right, such as /r/freefolk (for Game of Thrones), /r/lotrmemes (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), /r/raimimemes (Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy), and /r/thanosdidnothingwrong and /r/inthesoulstone (Avengers: Infinity War, along with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe).
G to I
- Gag Haircut: /r/Justfuckmyshitup collects pictures of people with bad or just strange haircuts.
- Gorn: /r/Spacedicks and /r/watchpeopledie
arewere subreddits dedicated entirely to this. And by that, we mean real life gore. It would be an understatement to say that these subreddits are controversial.
- As of , both of these subreddits no longer exist.
- Gun Porn: /r/GunPorn.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Every other day, Reddit launches a counterattack somewhere. Or on itself.
- Haute Cuisine Is Weird: /r/WeWantPlates/ collects pictures of restaurant dishes served in or on bizarre and unappetizing objects instead of on plates. /r/StupidFood is also about stupid, pretentious, and/or overly trendy food, overlapping occasionally with /r/shittyfoodporn for food and food products that are merely stupid.
- He-Man Woman Hater: Quite a few women (and men) on Reddit have complained about the site's skewed demographics (see There Are No Girls on the Internet) and outrageous sexism before, especially concentrated in /r/theredpill. /r/shitredditsays is the main hub for these complaints (although it's a subreddit that's widely accused of questionable behavior and comments in and of itself).
- Heavy Metal: /r/metal also includes all of Heavy Metal's sub-genres.
- Hide Your Lesbians: The site has an entire subreddit called Sappho And Her Friend dedicated to this. While some examples are just ambiguous, many people ignore the just-as-logical LGBT explanation of characters' actions, others are obvious yet still being explained away as simply just close friends, roommates etc.
- Hilariously Abusive Childhood: The stories posted by /u/rogersimon10, all of which involve his father beating him with jumper cables.
- Hive Mind: Reddit sometimes acts likeone inindividual threads to troll the OP, mostly just for laughs.
- One OP accidentally changed his language settings to Spanish, and posted a thread to /r/askreddit about how to switch it back. Every response was written in Spanish, even an admin's.
- An infamously bizarre example is /r/CatsStandingUp, where nearly every word and every post has to simply be "Cat." Saying anything else in the sub gets you an automatic ban.
- Hugh Mann: The idea of /r/totallynotrobots is to act like a Robot would, while also stumbling on many a humanism robots would be confused by.
- Humans Are Morons: An extremely high number of Reddit users are the profile picture of this trope.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: /r/LeopardsAteMyFace/ documents instances of people's own actions backfiring on them. Typically, posts will contain people expressing regret for things like a political policy that they were in favor of or voted for, but didn't think through all of the implications of the policy's implementation.
- Honor Before Reason: The admins have refused to deal with some of the subreddits that promote illegal activity because it would violate their belief in freedom of speech, only deleting subreddits like /r/jailbait after media pressure.
- The Horseshoe Effect: Subreddits like Stormfront or SJW?note which challenges the reader to identify whether a given statement was said by a social justice warrior or a neo-Nazi or Men Kampfnote which observes how Nazi-esque statements from social justice warriors become when substituting "men" for "Jews" and "women" for "Aryans" etc. are based on this concept.
- Humans Are Bastards: A huge portion of the users on the site. This is also what you'll probably think browsing through /r/morbidreality. There is also /r/Iamatotalpieceofshit and /r/Fuckthesepeople who are pretty much named after the featured individuals.
- Hurricane of Puns: Entire threads of puns are not uncommon. There's even an entire subreddit dedicated to puns, simply named /r/puns.
- Hypocritical Humor: Commonly used by /r/circlejerk, a Self-Parody subreddit, when pointing out Reddit's hypocrisies.
"Hot girl posting on reddit? Upvoted! Oh wait you're not very attractive? REDDIT IS NOT YOUR FACEBOOK!!"
"I hate COD because all the games are similar, but I love Pokemon."
"9GAG sucks for stealing our original content. Also, upvote this 4chan image!"
- Idiot Programming: Invoked in /r/SoftwareGore.
- Ice-Cream Koan: The entire point of r/NotInteresting, particularly with regards to meme templates.
- I Have This Friend /r/MyFriendWantsToKnow.
- I Just Want to Be Badass: r/iamverybadass is dedicated to images and videos of people (usually men) trying to appear tough and warrior-like, but who just come off as sad or pathetic.
- I Read It for the Articles: /r/WatchItForThePlot, which is a subreddit dedicated to nude scenes, boob shots, and sex scenes in movies and TV shows.
- Inflationary Dialogue: A common gag in the comments, e.g. for news stories where a large amount of money was seized or embezzled, is to create a chain where each commenter makes note of the amount, which shrinks each time, suggesting that each commenter skimmed some of the money or whatever it is as it went down the line.
- Insufferable Genius: r/iamverysmart revolves around some of the worst examples of people trying way too hard to sound smart. Ironically, one of the top posts on the sub is a headline of a news article where famous astrophysicist Stephen Hawking says that anyone who boasts about their high IQ score is a loser.
- Intentionally Awkward Title:
- The "SFW Porn" subreddits all have "porn" in their titles, but it's Not What It Looks Like— they just mean it in the sense of Scenery Porn. For instance, the subreddit r/FoodPorn is dedicated to pictures of well-made and/or tasty-looking food; nothing in the sub is actually pornographic. That doesn't prevent these subreddits being blocked by overzealous network filters.
- The Incest Porn subreddit is one of the few that actually contains porn.
- Various subreddits labelled "circlejerk" are almost always about doing the act metaphorically; that is, it's an echo chamber where everyone spouts the same opinions to each other over and over.
- Internet Counterattack: EA's attempt to justify its controversial Star Wars Battlefront II ()microtransaction policy was not well received, suffice it to say. The fandom responded by brigading the thread and downvoting its most popular response: "The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment", to ,, making it by far and away the most downvoted comment in the site's historynote A feat that actually earned them an official Guinness World Record. To put that in perspective, the second most downvoted comment, with over 89, downvotes, literally asked for them.
- The Internet Is for Porn: The large largelarge selection of NSFW subreddits. There's even a "randnsfw" button that, if enabled, will carry you to a random subreddit that is wholly tagged as "not safe for work", and the vast majority of those are porn.
- Internet Jerk: The large userbase and loose moderation leads to many, many examples of the G.I.F.T in action.
- It Makes Sense in Context: /r/nocontext and its derivatives are dedicated to images or comments like this.
- I Was Quite a Fashion Victim: /r/blunderyears, where users post embarrassing photos of their youth.
- It Will Never Catch On: /r/RedditThroughHistory is mostly about this. Much of the humor in their April Fool's Day time-travel joke also relies on this.
J to M
- Jerkass: Some of the users have unpleasant attitudes, no matter how civil you can be towards them.
- Knight Templar Parent: /r/entitledparents sometimes features this trope gone wrong.
- Know-Nothing Know-It-All: As with most online forums, Redditors are anonymous and any credentials they may claim to have are unverifiable, so take any facts and advice you read with a grain of salt.
- Land Down Under: r/straya is for humorous and often self-effacing looks at Australian life.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Parodied with /r/ThreeTimesFaster. Doubles as a Shout-Out to the obvious originator thereof.
- Less Disturbing in Context: invoked/r/nocontext collects lines that are disturbing, dirty (dirtier, anyway) or just silly out-of-context.
- Long-Lost Uncle Aesop: Some participants on /r/relationships turn up just for the sake of participating in the situation (or are mentioned in the OP's post itself).
- Lower-Class Lout: Chronicled extensively by r/trashy and related subreddits.
- Lust Object: Whenever anybody posts on r/copypasta, a bot named "CummyBot" will repost the copypasta for mobile users. But after that, comments with emojis like: "oh cummy you can fuck me anytime you want " will appear, which is pretty gross for some people.
- Makes Just as Much Sense in Context: /r/evenwithcontext collects lines that are just plain weird both in and out of context.
- Malaproper: All documented in r/boneappletea.
- Male Gaze: r/UpvotedBecauseBoobs gathers posts that gather lots of upvotes simply because there are boobs, in contrast to the intent of upload.
- Mathematician's Answer:
- Answering "Is this X or Y?" with "Yes." is a gag that shows up in a variety of subs, and has its own: r/InclusiveOR.
- r/technicallythetruth exists to document statements that are, well, technically the truth.
- Meaningful Name: Reddit means "He/she/it gives back" in Latin.
- Medal of Dishonor: This on-site wiki page catalogues the most downvoted posts and comments on Reddit.
- Men Can't Keep House: /r/malelivingspace/ has a reputation for posting pictures of drab apartments occupied by single men.
- Mind Screw:
- Mistaken for Servant: The point of /r/IDontWorkHereLady. It frequently involves Insane Troll Logic, people refusing to admit they were wrong, and assault, though sometimes, the idiot does recognise their mistake before it gets out of hand.
- Mister Seahorse: As told in a ragecomic, one male friend of a user took an ex-girlfriend's leftover pregnancy test for kicks and tested positive. Turns out he had cancer, but it was caught in time.
- Moral Myopia: /r/AmITheAsshole attempts to avert this by letting posters submit their dubious actions for community judgment. Commenters respond by voting YTA (You're The Asshole), NTA (Not The Asshole, the other party is), NAH (No Assholes Here) or ESH (Everyone Sucks Here). Naturally, though, there are many posters who are stupefied to find that people believe they could be in the wrong.
- Motion Blur:
- Motive Decay: Benignly, some subs start out with focusing on a subject matter or meme format then, over time, lose that focus and become a shadow of its former self, even if more and more people are attempting to add to it. More sinisterly, some subreddits started off with innocuous discussion topics but degraded into nationalism, misogny, and so on (these subreddits are best left unnamed here).
- Multiple-Choice Past: Certain users who lie about themselves in comments and posts can wind up being exposed when someone else digs up contradictory posts in their profile history (i.e. improbable number of claimed careers for someone that age, etc.). These sometimes make it onto /r/QuitYourBullshit.
N to P
- Nausea Fuel: Invoked in The Swamps of Dagobah story describes an awful smelling pus-riddled woman being operated on by the person posting it.
- Nightmare Fetishist: The denizens of /r/creepy and /r/nosleep.
- Nightmare Retardant: invoked Invoked with /r/shittynosleep, a parody of /r/nosleep.
- Non-Indicative Name
- The "SFW Porn" group of subreddits, which unanimously refer to "porn" in the Food Porn and Scenery Porn sense, i.e. pretty photos of food and landscapes. Gets especially awkward with /r/HumanPorn (which does occasionally have artful nudes) and /r/AnimalPorn. This often will annoy redditors, who may not appreciate having the word "porn" in their history, no matter its intended use, enough so that a catch-all sub called /r/NoSillySuffix was formed to avert the trope.
- /r/trees is about marijuana. /r/marijuanaenthusiasts, therefore, was the logical place to put the subreddit that was actually about trees.
- On a similar note, r/worldpolitics became an NSFW subreddit in mid, with r/anime_titties, the actual world politics subreddit, being formed in protest to the former descending into anarchy. The latter got its name for, well, Hentai being posted on the former sub.
- /r/stormfront is about severe weather, not the notorious white supremacist forum. In a way a Subverted Trope, as it is, in fact, literally about storms.
- Similarly, /r/white used to be about white supremacy until the current moderation petitioned to adopt it, whereupon they transformed it into a place for pictures of things that are shades of white.
- Around 80% of subreddits with "pussy" in their name will actually pertain to cats. r/girlswithhugepussies features pictures of girls holding large cats, while r/tightpussy features cats fit snugly in tight places, such as corners, boxes, and the like. (Inverted with r/pussy itself, of course, which is about Exactly What It Says on the Tin.)
- /r/OnlyFans was once about reposting NSFW content from the website of the same name, which led to it getting so many DMCA takedowns it had to be closed and stayed that way for two years. In August of , the current moderator requested to adopt the sub and subsequently turned it into a sub for fans. As in air circulation devices.
- r/PeopleFuckingDying is a cute/wholesome content subreddit in the vein of r/aww or r/eyebleach with mockingly deceptive post titles that suggest violent or gruesome content.
- In general, subs named after a specific meme or original incident will be confusing to those outside of the loop, especially if their names look like something that makes sense at first glance. r/DisneyVacation, for example, is about re-contextualizing weird illustrations in WikiHow articles, not actual vacations to Disneyland or Disney World.
- r/DontDeadOpenInside has the meme they are named after permanently pinned to the top, otherwise you would have no idea what the sub is about. note Oddly formatted text that makes no sense when read in a traditional left to right format.
- "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer:
- /r/nottheonion collects real news articles that wouldn't look out of place on parody sites such as The Onion. The sidebar stresses that the sub is for true stories only.
- /r/subsithoughtifellfor/ chronicles subreddit names that sound fake, but are actually entirely real. Similarly, /r/subsiwishifellfor/ are for documenting subreddit links that are genuine, but are otherwise unwise to visit.
- Not Me This Time: Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao was already disliked by some redditors for removing some subreddits among other actions. When a well-liked admin was let go unexpectedly, Reddit freaked out on Pao, only for it to be revealed later that it was actually /u/kn0thing that had fired the admin.
- Not Safe for Work: There's a lot of NSFW subreddits though most are just flat out pornography. All of them require you to be 18 or older.
- Not the Intended Use: After the website decided to greatly expand it's award system to include more fun awards, people started to misuse them. The most infamous is using the "wholesome" award to express aproval of extremley fucked up shit, like murders.
- Obnoxious Entitled Housewife: Those who fit the stereotype are mocked on /r/FuckYouKaren, which originated as a series of memes about an obnoxious ex-wife and is now dedicated to memes about the entitled, argumentative suburban mom stereotype.
- Only in Florida: The subreddit /r/floridaman examines various bizarre stories coming out of Florida.
- Orphaned Punchline: Take Simon's Cat, strip out the buildup and convert it to a gif, and see the result. The "switcharoo" meme is all about jokes that apparently are related to the subject matter at hand, but are often something about something else.
- Outgrown Such Silly Superstitions: Many of the posts on /r/atheism involve variations of this sentiment being expressed. /r/magicskyfairy is a mockery of such by deliberately taking the terminology antitheists and /r/atheism use a lot (magic invisible sky fairies that don't exist, fundies, etc) and upping it to eleven.
- Overly Long Gag:
- Pun threads and "No, you're thinking of __" threads tend to devolve into these.
- Comment chains, sometimes stretching on into the hundreds or thousands long, are pretty common on the site. Expect any instance of "Nice" or "F" to have at least ten people after it comment the exact same thing.
- Palette Swap: /r/reallifeshinies, named after "shinies" from Pokémon, collects pictures of animals and objects that have a different color scheme than usual.
- Papa Wolf: /r/dadreflexes features fathers saving their young children from imminent danger.
- Pass the Popcorn: The logo for /r/subredditdrama, which, as the name suggests, records the various instances of flamewars on the site. Popcorn is also frequently mentioned in the posts. Popcorn flair is available in /r/politics.
- The Peeping Tom: In a major scandal (crassly dubbed "the Fappening") where many celebrities' private nude photos were illegally copied from their phones, Reddit promptly became a hub for people distributing the leaked images. The offending subreddits were eventually shut down by the site admins, amid much controversy - but not before they'd reached critical mass, with the material spread so much as to have become trivial to find with a Google search.
- The Points Mean Nothing: Often said about the "karma" points users collect from upvotes, and yet users still fight over them. Given new life when Reddit went apeshit over staff decision to remove the ability to see the exact number of upvotes and downvotes, and users with hundreds of thousands of link karma attract hate comments every so often. And, of course, the tagline for /r/scenesfromahat.
- Poke the Poodle:
- The entire point of /r/firstworldanarchists.
- /r/madlads is similar, consisting of posts made on social media with the perpetrator worried, ashamed, proud, or otherwise putting more weight on their offense than it calls for.
- Poe's Law:
- /r/atetheonion features examples of people mistaking articles from the satirical "news"paper The Onion for actual news articles. Conversely, /r/nottheonion is for legitimate news articles with subject matter so weird that it can be mistaken for an article from The Onion.
- The initial reaction to /r/pyongyang is generally confusion over whether it's serious or not. On the one hand, the idea of a bastion of English-language pro-North Korea propaganda on one of the most mainstream American sites is preposterous. On the other hand, they're very dedicated to the charade, and a number of far-left subreddits express unironic support for North Korea.
- In its heyday, /r/The_Donald often got this reaction from those outside of it, especially since it became so popular, the subreddit appeared on the front page numerous times. Based on the sheer amount of fanaticism its users had for Donald Trump, many users were unsure exactly how much of it is a joke.
- Pokémon Speak: Cat.
- Police Are Useless: It's well-documented that Reddit has almost no respect towards police officers, mainly due to Accentuate the Negative articles painting them as this, prone to Police Brutality, painting them as Dirty Cops or consistent Karma Houdinis.
- Occasionally subverted when a police officer does an AMA; what usually happens is that curiosity prevails and a lot of genuine questions are asked, often followed by newfound respect after it becomes clear that while there certainly are crooked cops, the average officer's job is not about whacking random people over the head with truncheons.
- Police Brutality: One of the reasons Reddit hates cops, as noted above. /r/bad_cop_no_donut is dedicated to instances where cops overstep their boundaries.
- Precision F-Strike: Prolific novelty account u/Poem_for_your_sprog leaves comments in the form of poems, several of which are about an unfortunate person named Timmy and end with "And Timmy fucking died."
- Pretender Diss: /r/gatekeeping collects attempts at these that come off as being pointlessly exclusionary instead.
- The Problem with Pen Island: Some subreddit titles will use this as a Bait-and-Switch. Most noteworthy is /r/superbowl, which at first looks like it may be referring to the championship game in the NFL, but is actually in fact a subreddit full of owls of the superb variety.
- Punctuation Changes the Meaning: There's a bot that takes cues from the xkcd comic by automatically searching for phrases with "[descriptor] ass [thing]" in posts and replying to them with the same phrase but with a hyphen placed after "ass" so it reads, "[descriptor] ass-[thing]".
Q to T
- Rank Inflation: /r/trees has a number scale to indicate how high the poster is. The problem is that unlike chan's number scale, it's subjective (i.e.  is the highest the poster has ever been, as opposed to adhering to certain objective symptoms). The /r/trees FAQ acknowledges that most  posts are exaggerations. Some posters have suggested  or similar to actually refer to being that ridiculously high, but they are quickly shot down.
- A Rare Sentence: r/BrandNewSentence. Also /r/RareInsults.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: /r/YouGotTold links to various instances on the site.
- Real Life: /r/outside is Reddit's equivalent to our page on the subject.
- Rice Burner: r/Shitty_Car_Mods, which features a lot of extremely impractical car mods.
- Rouge Angles of Satin: r/BoneAppleTea is a subreddit that chronicles examples of this.
- Running Gag: Far too many to mention.
- Sarcastic Confession: This treecomic and its comments.
- Scenery Gorn: /r/DestructionPorn and /r/ApocalypsePorn. And, of course, a sizable part of the Imaginary Network, like /r/ImaginaryDerelicts and /r/ImaginaryWastelands.
- Scenery Porn: Most of the "SFW Porn" subreddits, such as /r/EarthPorn, /r/CityPorn, /r/SpacePorn, and /r/waterporn, are dedicated to this. The Imaginary Network is mostly divided between Technology Porn (see the example below), Scenery Gorn (see the example above), and this, with subreddits such as /r/ImaginaryCityscapes, /r/ImaginarySkyscapes or /r/ImaginaryForests
- The Schizophrenia Conspiracy: r/gangstalking is notorious as a gathering place for paranoid schizophrenics and other people with paranoid or persecutory delusions and has occasionally been the target of ban petitions due to its status as an echo tank for seriously unwell people, but has so far managed to avoid that fate. r/legaladvice also sees this from time to time with some of the stalking and harassment claims, but individuals who go there are almost always implored to get help and are often provided with mental health resources.
- Screen Shake: /r/redditintensifies
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: This post caused at least 30 accounts so far to delete themselves after announcing they would leave reddit forever.
- Self-Deprecation: Very common among posters, especially in /r/suicidebywords, a subreddit dedicated to self-deprecating humor.
- Self-Parody: There are entire Reddit communities based around mocking Reddit, most notably /r/circlejerk. Unfortunately, this often escalates into bullying.
- Serial Escalation: When one user posts a certain image, some others decide to post a new image trying to either one-up the previous one, or add [Fixed] to the replacement image. By the time a random reader notices, it's the sixth time they've created a new escalation for a theme, and they've become increasingly efficient about it.
- Serious Business:
- Karma points. Dear Lord. "Power users" with extremely high karma tend to attract a Hatedomjust for having high karma.
- Subreddit sidebar rules.
- Frivolous rules aren't exempt. For example: in /r/thingsforants you are to title every post "What is this, a <whatever> for ants??". Any deviation - like failing to include "what is this" at the beginning - will have members calling for the offender's ban.
- /r/CatsStandingUp takes this trope to its Logical Extreme Played for Laughs. Every title and comment must be exactly "Cat.". The CSS on the page even changes the usernames and subreddit tabs to "Cat.".
- The Throwdown Thursday threads in /r/Nintendo have a hard-and-fast rule that every comment must be written in all-caps. These are common to other video game or sports subreddits who similarly have weekly shouting threads to vent/rage/circlejerk.
- /r/KarmaCourt parodies the concept by providing a place where users can make cases regarding unfair distribution of karma.
- /r/MemeEconomy is another parody. Investors advise and ask questions to other investors about the future value of memes, what to buy, what to sell, etc, with some users claiming to fall into depression after losing their fortune investing into a failed meme.
- /r/anime's annual "Best Girl Contests". Expect essays, video tributes, and entire photo albums devoted to someone's "waifu". The subreddit has many other contests, but the Best Girl contest dwarfs all of them, even the Best Character Contest (which includes male characters in addition to the females).
- /r/ShingekiNoKyojin, also known as Attack on Titan in the west, treats untagged spoilers as very serious business, given the reveal-heavy nature of the story.
- "Shaggy Dog" Story: "Tree fiddy stories", via Memetic Mutation from South Park, where someone posts a long and ostensibly on-topic story, which ends up in a character asking for "about tree fiddy" and revealing himself to be a disguised Loch Ness monster.
- Shoddy Knockoff Product: /r/crappyoffbrands and its parody, /r/shittyoffbrands, have examples of these from around the world.
- The Singularity: /r/Singularity, of course.
- Sophisticated as Hell: Prolific novelty account /u/Poem_for_your_sprog tends to reply to comments with a well-crafted, sometimes eloquent poem that frequently end with a single, abrupt curse in the final line. Nearly any poem about a hypothetical "Timmy" is inevitably going to end with "And Timmy fucking died."
- So Unfunny, It's Funny: /r/ComedyCemetery collects text, comics, and videos of this nature. For truly hilariously unfunny material, there's /r/ComedyHeaven.
- Speaks in Shout-Outs:
- In general, any fandom subreddit is going to have newcomers out of the loop if they don't know what the shoutouts refer to.
- The /r/unexpected line of subreddits, such as /r/UnexpectedTF2 and /r/UnexpectedB99 which often has users post screnshots of an unrelated topic being taken over by a shoutout of a particular show/ game/ movie reference.
- Spiritual Successor: Reddit can be seen as one to Usenet, especially its alt.* hierarchy.
- Spoiled Brat: Among the worst case scenarios for an /r/entitledparents story, with parents refusing to admit their baaabyyy did something wrong or, even worse, actively encouraging the kid to do something wrong. Or trying to steal other people's belongings.
- Spoiler Title: Subs in the NoNoYesYes family, such as /r/r/nonononoyes, indicate how their gifs are going to go down ahead of time. Defied by the /r/MaybeMaybeMaybe subreddit, which can start or end in any direction without the subreddit name spoiling.
- So Bad, It's Good: Invoked on a lot of subreddits.
- Most subs starting with "shitty" are dedicated to collecting particularly poor examples of something, though some of them, such as /r/shittylifeprotips, are deliberate attempts at it.
- /r/justfuckmyshitup collects really strange hairstyles, some of which would require a great deal of effort to create and maintain.
- Spot the Thread: Reddit being what it is, the veracity of a decent amount of the stories and responses posted should be taken with a grain of salt, unless the sub in question requires proof of real-life credentials. Sometimes, however, other users that know what they're talking about will notice a detail inconsistency that exposes the fake, e.g. incorrect medical/law terminology, military members displaying inadequate or wrong Acronym and Abbreviation Overload.
- Start My Own: It doesn't take much to start a new subreddit, so sometimes you see disgruntled members of a community split off to form their own, without rules or members they disagree with.
- Happened to the whole of Reddit, too, in the form of Voat and Ruqqus.
- Stealth Parody: One interpretation of /r/shitredditsays is that its members talk about privileged people, namely Straight Able-bodied Cisgender White Males (SAWCASMs) the way they talk about minorities on Reddit.
- Straw Feminist: A self-mocking, ironic Running Gag on the SRS "fempire", used to mock accusations of being radical feminists. Also used, unironically, by its detractors.
- Straw Nihilist: The comment threads are full of them.
- Stylistic Suck:
- /r/crappydesign is self-demonstrating, with Comic Sans as the default font for all text elements, an ugly, nonsensical banner, the sub name in barely-readable rainbow WordArt, a rotating upvote arrow, and a a downvote arrow with 'TM' superimposed on it.
- Some subreddits have taken to turning their subreddits as ugly as possible when viewed through the NP (no posting, which happens when you come to the Subreddit through a link from another subreddit - this is to prevent brigading) filter.
- The design for /r/mildlyinfuriating includes a simulated slow-loading banner image, randomly tilted comment text, glaring typos, and lots of other things to help it live up to its name.
- /r/ATBGE inverts this; the acronym stands for "Awful Taste But Great Execution". It's where someone's craftsmanship is ingenious or well-done, despite the fact that what they were doing still doesn't look very good or is clearly a bad idea.
- Take That!: r/MurderedByWords, which is where someone makes a snappy comeback.
- Talkative Loon:
- Tall Poppy Syndrome: Users with high karma get hate just for having high karma.
- Post that do well enough will be added to /r/all, where they will get the most exposure of any posts on the site. It also means they will be seen by people outside the community it was posted in and who have little fear of moderator repercussions. The creators of such content are often "honored" with thousands of messages of hate and criticism.
- Technology Porn: /r/MachinePorn and /r/GeekPorn. A lot of the Imaginary Network qualifies as well - like /r/ImaginaryStarships and /r/ImaginaryRobots.
- Tempting Fate: If somebody posts "do not upvote" in terms of hiding an awkward question or post, people will probably upvote the hell out of it anyway.
- Theme Naming: Subreddits with "shitty" in their name (such as /r/shittynosleep, /r/shittyaskscience, or /r/shittyama) are humorous parodies of their respective "legit" subreddits, while those with "circlejerk" are parodies of the community associated with them. Note that there are exceptions - for example /r/shittykickstarters is a (relatively) serious subreddit dedicated to debunking and exposing crowdfunding scams.
- The Stoner: /r/treesis the most popular marijuana subreddit. (If you actually want to talk about trees, go to /r/marijuanaenthusiasts.)
- The Tetris Effect: Spend enough time on Reddit and the next time you take a peek at your Facebook feed you will instinctively reach for the downvote button, only to have to remind yourself Facebook doesn't have a voting system. Ditto for every other site with user-submitted content (and probably many without).
- There Are No Girls on the Internet: % of the site is male. The Subreddit of TwoXChromosomes aims to avert this, and ShitRedditSays has a healthy female userbase.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Bacon, Nutella. In a more condescending stereotype, Doritos/Cheetos and Mountain Dew, usually to mock game journalists, after an infamous interview from Gamespot where an absolutely miserable-looking journalist conducted a piece with Mountain Dew and Doritos prominently placed in the vid.
- Totally Radical: /r/FellowKids categorizes various tryhard advertisements of this nature, especially when they try (and fail) to incorporate memes.
- Too Incompetent to Operate a Blanket: /r/wheredidthesodago is dedicated to out-of-context infomercial scenes, most of which come in this form.
- Torches and Pitchforks: /r/PitchforkEmporium is dedicated to manufacturing and selling ASCII pitchforks for riots, paid in shmeckles.
- Transhuman: /r/Transhuman and /r/Transhumanism. And, occasionally, /r/Singularity.
- Troll: Many subreddits are full of these. It's usually best to assume that "I Am A" and "Ask Me Anything" posts are fake until proven otherwise; as you can imagine the idea is such a lure for trolls.
- Trust Password: IamA and AMA posters are encouraged to verify their authenticity by submitting photos with a timestamp.
- TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life: It is considered slightly bad form to post a link to TV Tropes in a comment thread. Not that anyone there doesn't like us; just that once they get here they'll be stuck for the rest of the day - although it's arguable they already had this problem by being on Reddit in the first place.
U to Z
- Unknown Rival:
- Most of 4chan deeply despises Reddit, to the point where they've made hundreds of fake versions of Reddit's rage comics to troll themselves with. However, the hatred is generally one-sided with a few subreddits dedicated to documenting 4chan such as /r/4chan and /r/classic4chan, and they're ambivalent at worst. Something Awful hates Reddit for the same reason, on top of all the misogynistic, anti-theist, pedophilic, and creepy (not in the 'horror genre' sense) subreddits. They organized a giant raid to force Reddit's admins to shut down all the child porn subreddits.
- Reddit has one of these with 9gag, Reddit having an entire sub-reddit devoted to complaining about 9gag, while most members of 9gag aren't even aware of that Reddit dislikes them and a fair few are very likely unaware that Reddit even exists.
- Reddit has had a long-standing feud with Gawker, which boiled over in the violentacrez debacle.
- A chunk of Redditors hate Imgur, for some bizarre reason, despite a healthy shared userbase, due to, well, Imgur being the primary go-to for Reddit uploads. It goes the other way as well. /r/IgnorantImgur is a subreddit for this
- There have been many Reddit clones and offshoots made by people disgruntled about decisions that Reddit has made. Most of these offshoots are very small.
- Unusually Uninteresting Name: Subverted with many well-known power users who often have usernames like ANAL_QUEEN or other sexual/disgusting phrase written in all caps.
- There's also a trend for "PM_ME_YOUR_[insert thing here in all-caps]" usernames, which can get quite odd very quickly. Even better if the thing the username is requesting can be interpreted either sexually, or innocently.
- Viewers Are Geniuses: Some of the jokes on /r/fifthworldproblems are more esoteric than anything on xkcd.
- Vigilante Man: Those involving themselves in the events surrounding the now-private subreddit /r/findbostonbombers.
- Waxing Lyrical: Happens occasionally, with different redditors going line by line. Chronicled by /r/redditsings.
- The Walrus Was Paul: /r/gggg, which was originally only morse code messages, with lower case being .'s and upper case being dashes.
- We All Live in America: With the exception of subreddits explicitly dedicated to other countries or cities, Reddit is heavily American-slanted, and many American redditors will automatically assume that any other users who don't include very obvious mistakes in their written English are themselves American. As a result, things like asking for, say, rust prevention advice in /r/DIY will result in redditors suggesting you buy Rustoleum brand chemicals, or asking about bicycle grease in /r/bicycling might get you suggestions for Phil's Wood Bearing Grease (prompting the obvious question "Who's Phil? Should I e-mail him?"). To say nothing of legal advice, which is state-specific, let alone country-specific.
- Extremely apparent in Tech-Related subreddits, where any and all advice ends up being American-Centric, leading to confused Europeans trying to use Craigslist and being told to go to the nearest Walmart. The fact that most articles that end up being shared are written from an American point of view (As seen with the iPhone SE, as decent Chinese mid-ranger Androids are completely non-existent in the US) doesn't help.
- Flip-flopped with /r/Android, as any question concerning budget phones will inevitably end up as a case of We All Live In India, and a flood of recommendations for Xiaomi devices — despite the fact that they literally cannot work in the US due to not having the required bands to operate on most US 4G networks.
- What a Piece of Junk: r/sleeperbattlestations is dedicated to powerful PCs that utilize old or unassuming cases.
- What Could Possibly Go Wrong?: /r/whatcouldgowrong fits this to a tee.
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: invoked Played straight with /r/bakedart and /r/TreesSketchbook.
- Wise Beyond Their Years: /r/wokekids is a sub dedicated to posting about kids and babies making "profound" statements, spouting conspiracy theories, or having intellect beyond most adults. /r/thathappened also commonly chronicles obviously fake or heavily embellished versions of this.
- Your Mom: If there's an opportunity to make a joke like that at OP's expense, someone will take it.
- Really Years Old: /r/13or30 asks redditors to work out of the inage posted is the person at 13 years old or 30 years old.
- Youth Is Wasted on the Dumb: The entire point of r/KidsAreFuckingStupid is to showcase hilarious examples of this.
- Zeerust: /r/RetroFuturism

EVE Echoes: Indomitable Makes Nullsec Even Deadlier than Before
EVE Echoes is EVE in the palm of your hand, and while the experience is pretty damn similar to its larger PC sibling, Echoes is missing some content and features found in EVE Online. Echoes first expansion, Indomitable, will bring the two games closer to content parity, and nullsec will never be the same. EVE Echoes: Indomitable is a free update to the game, and is available now for players on both Android and iOS.
EVE Echoes: Indomitable introduces player Citadels to nullsec, and increases maximum fleet size to 50 pilots.
EVE Echoes: Indomitable will further flesh out the PvP side of the sandbox MMO, which is arguably its largest feature. What better way for corporations to bicker over manufacturing, trade, and territory than to assert their dominance in battle? Indomitable will introduce Territorial Claim Units, Corporation Stations, and player-owned station known as Citadels to nullsec spac. These Citadels act as bases and refuges for players within nullsec, where anything goes. Where Corporations and Alliances decide to set up shop in the lawless corners of the galaxy will ultimately determine the balance of power.
Speaking of Alliances, the cap has been raised to 30 corporations, and up to 50 pilots can form a fleet. This is still far lower than the cap in EVE Online, but one can only hope developers NetEase Games and CCP Games are able to bump fleet size up further as the game grows and their server infrastructure improves. To mitigate problems born from the latter concern and lag, EVE Echoes: Indomitable introduces Time Dilation (TiDi), which slows down all in-game actions automatically whenever a bunch of players start to congregate within a system (so, itll pretty much be on permanently within Jita).
In the press release for Indomitable, EVE Echoes producer Su Wei had this to say about future content: Another expansion will be coming soon. Now we’re working on updating the system to support more than pilots in one system. In the future, we will add more content, including more corporation structures, new citadel skins, and increase the resource output of nullsec areas. It will be some time yet until EVE Echoes is matches EVE Onlines systems and features , but whats already in-game is impressive, especially for a mobile version that could have been yet another Clash-of-Clans clone, or gacha. I was impressed with EVE Echoes when I played it shortly before release, but havent had the time to jump in recently. Maybe I should; its been a while since Ive been podded . . . .
25 of the best co-op games on Android in
Mobile games don't get the attention of console and PC games, and so it can be hard to find what you're looking for since so few mobile games have been organized in any meaningful way. This is where I come in, I have put together a roundup of the best co-op games available on the Play Store, and this is a running list, now updated for So if you've been on the hunt for some awesome co-op title to play with your friends or significant other, then today's roundup is for you.
SMG Studio's Death Squared is a humorous and enjoyable puzzle game that's centered around coordination, cooperation, and giant explosions. You can play solo if you wish, and you also team up with one other player to tackle the game's eighty or so block puzzles in tandem. Even better, physical bluetooth controllers are supported, so if your partner isn't a fan of touchscreen gameplay, there's a separate control option available that's a lot more tactile.

Soul Knight is a bullet hell shooter that contains a slick fantasy theme. You can play as a knight, rogue, wizard, or thief in a top-down view while trying your best to kill everything that moves. Tons of weapons and upgrades are scattered throughout the game's randomly generated levels, along with NPCs that can be recruited for a little AI assistance. Of course, you can also team up with up to three local players if you'd like to really cause some damage.

Among Us has soared to popularity over the last year, so it hardly needs an introduction. Now that people have caught on that this is an enjoyable party game, I figured it's time to add it to AP's co-op list. Tis is a game best played with multiple friends, and so it supports players at a time for each match, where players cooperate to take on their enemies. All in all, if you enjoy co-op party games and have a group of friends who also enjoy such things, then Among Us offers tons of fun.

Sky: Children of the Light
Sky: Children of the Light took its time coming to Android, but the wait was well worth it. This is a third-person exploration game that's similar in style to the developer's previous work, such as Journey and Flower. This means exploration is the key to success, and thanks to the game's co-op multiplayer aspects, you can explore the title's seven levels with a buddy or two quite easily. Now, this is a free-to-play release, and in-app purchases are included, but they are hardly necessary to enjoy the game. While this can be a demanding release, you can still play on a low-end device, thanks to a bout of performance improvements that were released in

DUAL is an interesting cross-device implementation of a classic space shooter. Two opponents can face off head to head through two different Android devices, or they can choose to cooperate in a separate mode to take down the game's many foes together. What's interesting is that the field of play extends across both devices, so you'll need to be within arm's length for the full experience. Just keep in mind that the local co-op mode where both players get to shoot invading aliens is unlocked through an in-app purchase for $3, which actually unlocks the entirety of the game.

XenoShyft is a digital board game adaptation from Asmodee Digital, and I specifically picked this game from the company's catalog because its gameplay is focused on coordination and strategic planning. While you can play this title solo, it shines when playing with others. At its core, this is a card-based game for 1 to 4 players, and it can be pretty challenging, which is why teaming up is the best way to tackle this strategic base-defense deck-builder.
Monetization: $ / no ads / IAPs from $ - $
Dragalia Lost is a fairly popular gacha game from Nintendo, so of course, it's a casual action RPG with a heavy emphasis on collection mechanics. It contains some of the best music found in any Android release, and the gameplay isn't that bad either. Journeying from one level to the next while defeating groups of enemies, to then take on a giant boss fight, is a formula many gacha fans should be familiar with, but the fact that you can team up to take down the game's many foes is what makes this a standout in today's roundup.
Monetization: free / no ads / IAPs from $ - $
Battle of Polytopia - A Civilization Strategy Game
The Battle of Polytopia is one of the better 4X turn-based strategy games currently available on the Play Store, and its low-poly graphics indeed provide the game with a unique look. All maps are auto-generated, which allows for endless replayability, and the majority of the title can be played for free. Really, the only downside to this release is that the co-op content is locked behind an in-app purchase, but this purchase will unlock the entirety of the game, so it's easily worth it.

Echoes reddit eve review
Eve Echoes is a sci-fi mobile MMORPG by CCP and NETEASE that is set in a vast, sand-box universe with thousands of star systems and the potential for insane growth-over-time, which requires considerable dedication to, and patience with, EVE Online (PC) or EVE Echoes (Mobile).
The learning curve is steep, get that right, but take your experience in EVE with an open mind and you will be paid off ten-fold months and years down the road. The EVE Online universe is huge, and you have the potential to make memories with pilots that may be around years later. With EVE Echoes, most everyone starts off with no assets or skill-points (SP) and as things occur in the Universe, if you are active enough, you can be a part of literal history.
Rules to consider at all times:
- You are only really “safe” in high-security systems (thanks to Concord). Concord stops responding with ships around .3 sec (having turrets around gates and stations) and do not respond past in any fashion.
- “DO NOT fly it unless you can afford to lose it” - this is an age-old adage shared amoung pilots, friend and foe alike, since EVE’s Inception.
