TVTropes isn't just about tropes from us television, it covers their uses and one's directly from anime, manga, literature, video games, and real life as well, I'm probably forgetting a category or two.
Sounds like something I may need to check on; seeing as I'm something of a movie buff/video game fanatic/casual anime and manga fan.
