Arguably, every story utilizes tropes to some extent. Sometimes, one story will use a trope very well and the next will use that same trope and it falls flat. What do you think makes tropes fail sometimes? Is it an overreliance on the trope that results in less character and/or plot development? Is it when there are too many tropes or the wrong combination of them that lead to the story being too predictable or the characters too boring? Or does it just come down to poor writing?
