You have before you three series. The first, Series A, was the first known use of a trope, but it may or may not have been intentional. The second, Series B, was the first intentional use of the trope. The third, Series C, does not claim originality, and may in fact have ripped off series B, but was much more popular than Series A or B and is the template that all later uses of this trope follow.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Series A is the Ur-Example.
Series B is the Trope Maker.
Series C is the Trope Codifier.
In other words, if in tracing the history of a trope, one example stands out as the template that many, many other examples follow, that's the Trope Codifier.
The Trope Maker is frequently also the Trope Codifier, but not always. In particular, when the Trope Maker is a work of outstanding quality, the Trope Codifier may often be a story that shows how lesser authors can do a good imitation. Conversely, a great writer may gather up many old tropes and polish them to a shine, codifying them for later generations. Occasionally somebody rediscovers a Forgotten Trope.
The Trope Codifier may be the first theme park version or Pragmatic Adaptation. If the trope is Older Than They Think, the Codifier is usually mistaken for the Trope Maker. Really old tropes may have been codified every couple of centuries for millennia, as successive codifiers show how to adapt the age-old trope to their times. With the advent of television, a trope related to television may be codified by a new show every decade or two after the associations with previous codifiers have died out.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Important: "Trope Codifier" does not mean Most Triumphant Example. It means "Example that has fingerprints of influence on all later examples of the trope". The true marker of a Codifier is that it invents some unique spin on the trope that all later examples have some reaction to. Take, for example, Werewolves. There were earlier examples of werewolf stories, but it is with 1941's The Wolf Man that we first see werewolves as an infection (previously, it was a curse or part of a Deal with the Devil), silver vulnerability (previously, it was vampires or ghosts who were usually associated with weakness to silver), made the werewolf a human cursed to turn into a wolf-man (previously, all kinds of variations were available, from wolf that turns into a man, to man who was permanently turned into a wolf), and tied the wolf to the night of the full moon (previously, they either focused on the three nights around the full moon, or had little to do with the phase of the moon). Almost all later examples of Werewolves bear some of these subtropes, which originated with The Wolf Man, or at least discuss them in order to explain why Our Werewolves Are Different. Thus, we can state with confidence that it is the Trope Codifier.

Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Examples should be of Trope Codifiers that aren't Trope Makers themselves.
Related to Older Than They Think. If a Trope Codifier is particularly influential, and the Trope Maker a little twisted you may have an Unbuilt Trope. Even the Trope Codifier itself may qualify as Unbuilt Trope because it tends to frequently contradict modern interpretations of said trope (and indeed most Trope Codifiers often have several major Unbuilt Tropes). There may also be a Series D which is the Trope Namer, which is a series that uses the trope so commonly, so appropriately (or inappropriately, as the case may be), or so memorably,note Or so punnily; tropers can't resist a good pun that it provides a name for the trope.
Also see Most Triumphant Example.

CMLL's mini estrellas were the trope makers for having the same gimmick on multiple luchadors of different sizes, most notably Mascara and Mascarita Sagrada, but AAA codified the idea with its mascot division, where every tag team\pareja had to be made up of a larger luchador and smaller mascot\smaller luchador and larger mascot.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica is the thing that makes Magical Girl Genre Deconstruction suddenly fill the market compared to the more traditional takes of the genre. It plays with just about every cliche magical girl tropes and shows just how making young girls fight violent monsters can mess up their life.

Metallica, Slayer, and Exodus are the codifiers for American Thrash Metal, with the vast majority of thrash bands modelling themselves on one of the three. In Germany, the codifiers are Kreator, Sodom, and Destruction (collectively known as the Three Teutonic Kings of Thrash Metal), and in Brazil, the codifiers are Sepultura, Sarcófago, and Vulcano.

The Zerg of StarCraft may have been the namers for Zerg Rush, but the Tyranids, of Warhammer 40,000, were infamous for the tactic long before the Swarm came around. Of course, both being based on the Bugs from Starship Troopers the similarities are unavoidable, the result being an odd case where the Trope Namer came after the Codifier.
Also the book also broke all the Bugs into castes of Worker and Warrior bugs, all directed by a special hierarchy of subterranean Brain Bugs.

Ranma ½'s Ranma Saotome and Akane Tendo aren't even Rumiko Takahashi's first couple with Belligerent Sexual Tension. But they're the standard by which all others are measured.
Ranma is also the most likely codifier for Martial Arts and Crafts unless someone who knows their kung-fu flicks can dethrone it - it's probably harder to think of a pursuit they didn't use in the series than one they did.
Ryoga Hibiki is the codifier for No Sense of Direction. His sense of direction is so bad that he literally traverses across continents and oceans without even realizing it.

A second possibility, wildly popular at the time but now more obscure, is The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. It placed such concepts as the private detective helping out the near useless police and the Locked Room Mystery into the popular consciousness a few decades before Doyle's novels.

The Carry On franchise codified Affectionate Parody because of their movies based on other films and genres; it also broke barriers between claims of copyright from Hollywood, who threatened to sue them, eventually losing their case in court.note This is probably the reason why parody is filed under Fair Use. However, the movies were the Trope Maker of Awful British Sex Comedy (the codifiers were Confessions of a... series) due to the use of explicit nudity in a time when British media was against it. Ironically, when the Carry On franchise did a parody full of blatant fanservice, it was called one of the worst in the series.

The Hollywood Nuns trope owes itself largely to three films. The Song of Bernadette (1943) was the initial Trope Codifier, and The Nun's Story (1959) and The Sound of Music (1965) solidly reinforced the trope. Because they were so popular, they were used as templates for nuns in film forever after.

Mr. Vampire was not the first of jiangshi genre films; jiangshi movies were made as early as 1936! However, Mr. Vampire definitely set the standard for them and helped propel the genre into popular from 1985 to the mid-1990s in East Asia.

While Modern Warfare wasn't the first game to use an RPG-esque leveling-up system for its multiplayer, you'd be hard pressed to find another online FPS today that doesn't use a system almost exactly like it. It's fairly easy to implement and can keep the player invested for another fifteen to twenty hours that they normally wouldn't have bothered with. It wasn't the absolute first modern military shooter game either, with Battlefield 2 among others preceding it, but most people blame it for making the setting popular, and it also popularised certain setpieces like breaching scenes and player-controlled Death from Above/fire support.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is the Trope Codifier for Darker and Edgier, Deconstructed mecha anime with a metaphysical edge. GaoGaiGar and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann attempted to Reconstruct the genre after it became overtaken by Eva-inspired works.
Evangelion can also be said to have taken the trope Up to Eleven as it completely redefined the whole medium of TV anime and what it could do. Before Evangelion the vast majority of TV anime was either adaptations of popular manga or family-friendly programs, but the show paved the way for several Anime First franchises which explored darker and more mature themes, material that before had been largely relegated to direct-to-video productions (the so-called OVAs) and therefore only reached a niche market.

Halloween (1978) was the Trope Maker for the Slasher genre, but Friday the 13th (1980) was the Trope Codifier. In particular, Friday the 13th (1980) was the actual Trope Maker for Death by Sex rather than Death By Not Paying Attention (Including Having Sex) for all the imitators that followed.
Arguably, the Italian proto-slasher giallo film A Bay of Blood was the trope codifier for Friday the 13th (1980) itself (and, by extension, slasher movies with its derivative formula), featuring the aforementioned Death by Sex trope; a seemingly desolate forest setting (on an idyllic waterfront, no less); an exceedingly high body count; and an all-around liberal employment of Gorn. Indeed, both Friday the 13th and its first sequel directly recreated certain scenes from A Bay of Blood (including spearing a copulating couple to death twice and embedding a sharp instrument in a respective victim's face). Earlier gialli (and American slasher antecedents such as Psycho) also employed certain variations of these tropes, but not in formulaic tandem with one another.

Wolfenstein 3D and Doom by id Software weren't the first First Person Shooters (or even id's first First Person Shooter), but the two games popularized the genre and each inspired dozens of imitators. For a while, first person shooters were often called "Doom clones." While these games are very primitive by today's standards - you can't jump or even look up - Doom remains to this day a partial trope codifier, popularizing Death matches, FPS games with built in support for Game Mods, telefragging your friends, etc.
In fact, John Romero coined the term deathmatch and frag.

While Dracula was the first modern codifier for vampiric tropes, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice was a subversion that served to codify the current template used by everyone from White Wolf to Twilight and Underworld. Both kinds of vampire are in active use, of course.
With an exception: for easily understood reasons, most successors have thrown out Anne Rice's vision of vampires as lacking sufficient bloodflow to get it up.

Warcraft II, while not the first Real-Time Strategy game, was the first one to formalize the RPG aspects, including clearly visible hit point counters and Hero Units.

90210 is also the Trope Codifier for a Teen Drama; it borrowed heavily from Degrassi Junior High and, besides adding the too-old "kids" moved the setting from a nondescript part of Toronto to one of the shiniest places the writers could think of. Two things most teen dramas since have kept in the mix.

Analog: In his role as Chief Editor for the magazine, John W. Campbell became the major codifier for Golden Age Science Fiction as a genre. His editorship standardized the use of tropes such as Humanity Is Superior (and specifically the White Male Lead), Humans Are Psychic in the Future and a certain mandatory hardness, and the authors he nurtured retained his influence long after his death.

Everybody Loves Raymond was hugely influential to later sitcoms and is a codifier for All Women Are Prudes in sitcoms (the notoriously anti-sex Debra)
It was also a reinforcer of the feminist wife who was always right, even if she argued that the sky was kelly green, initially codified by Home Improvement, where wife Jill was a self-admitted feminist and Tim was the one who screwed up 99.5% of the time.

It's unclear whether or not Advanced Dungeons & Dragons was the first to present an alignment system beyond good/neutral/evilnote Dungeons & Dragons used Lawful, Neutral and Chaotic for alignments. AD&D picked up from there and added good and evil as modifiers to all three., but it was definitely the most prominent, and its nine-point alignment system comprises all of the Character Alignment tropes today. Ironically, the most recent version of the game has done away with the alignment system, for the most part.
The Order Versus Chaos aspect was borrowed from Michael Moorcock and Poul Anderson, for what that's worth.
Original D&D only used Law/Neutral/Chaos. Later in the Strategic Review (the forerunning of Dragon) Gygax penned an article with five alignments: Neutral plus the four pairs using Good/Evil crossed with Law/Chaos. This version was used in Holmes's Blue Book Basic D&D. Soon after the AD&D PHB had the nine-fold system.

Lionel Luthor from Smallville is the Trope Codifier for Magnificent Bastard. The phrase itself comes from the 1970 movie Patton, and was used extensively by Television Without Pity's recaps of Smallville, to describe Lionel and the prodigious wheeling and dealing he engaged in throughout the course of the series.

Star Trek did not invent modern science-fiction television; but it made many science-fiction tropes commonplace on television, so much so that it is its own franchise and has influenced almost every subsequent speculative fiction series since, up to and including Heroes.
Star Trek: The Original Series did codify the Red Shirt, but in the earliest episodes they weren't actually wearing red shirts.
Likewise, it was not the first TV show to have fanfic, organized conventions, letterzines, etc. However, there are ridiculous amounts of Fanfic tropes that can be traced back to Classic Star Trek, and Roddenberry was one of the few pre-Internet series creators and rights holders who didn't actively go on a seek and destroy mission with the lawyers (he laughed it off as free advertising, and being a Dirty Old Man meant the sexually-explicit stuff didn't bother him), meaning it was a relatively safe haven for pre-Internet fandom.

The Kamen Rider franchise, while not the first Henshin Hero example (that would likely go to the Ultra Series), is the go-to standard for Henshin Hero.
Kamen Rider Ryuki pretty much becoming the Trope Codifier for all of the following Kamen Rider shows, with current series staples such as collectible devices, Transformation Trinket that has to be carried everytime, and Anti-Hero or pure evil Riders all making their debuts in Ryuki.

Super Mario Bros. was the Codifier for Platform Games (see The Other Wiki's article on platform games).
And Super Mario 64 was definitely not the Trope Maker for 3D Platformers (see The Other Wiki's article on platform games), but was definitely what all later games imitated.
Not to mention Super Mario World having the Codifier (and former Trope Namer) for Power-Up Mount.
And then we have the romhacks... Kaizo Mario World codified Platform Hell (and, of course, Kaizo Trap).
Also worth noting is Mario Party, codifier for the party game genre. Chances are, the trope maker would be its obscure, Japan-only Spiritual Predecessor Getter Love!! (assuming nothing came before that one).
Before even Super Mario Bros. is Donkey Kong, which popularized the platformer genre and also codified Throw a Barrel at It.
And to further set the point, it cannot be denied that Super Mario Kart is the Trope Maker and Codifier for the Mascot Racer genre.

While mostly unknown in English speaking countries until The Prince of Tennis, the sports anime genre has been a staple for over half a century now. Having so many subgenres and approaches, the scene has multiple codifiers.
In The '60s, Kyojin No Hoshi started the supokon (sports and guts) genre, putting the focus on the grueling training and sacrifice in the dogged pursuit of the top. It is the closest thing to a codifier for all sports anime and manga, and especially baseball. Tiger Mask and Ashita no Joe similarly codified wrestling and boxing series, respectively. All of them were written by Ikki Kajiwara, who makes him singlehandedly responsible for starting the genre.
Attack No. 1 codified Shoujo sports series as well as volleyball manga with hotblooded grace, with Aim for the Ace! doing the same for tennis during The '70s.
The '80s saw the arrival of arguably the single most popular sports manga and anime, Captain Tsubasa. While occasionally violent for drama, it was a much more bright-eyed, rip-roaring take on the genre. Physics-defying trick shots had appeared in other series long before, mostly in baseball series. But Tsubasa might be the most remembered for its bombastic use of them by an entire team. It codified soccer series as well as keeping the focus on the sheer fun of the game.
Pro Golfer Saru began as a manga in the '70s but it was its '80s anime adaptation that came to real prominence. Featuring a young protagonist and very unorthodox, over the top golfing techniques to distinguish every swing while skipping the boring parts, it codified golfing series, at least on the shounen side of things.
In The '90s, Slam Dunk became extremely popular despite keeping everything down to earth. Rather than being about larger than life geniuses, it balanced daily life, comedy, and relationships. The series codified basketball manga and how to realistically approach a sports series while keeping audiences hooked.

The Mad Max franchise is the most well-known example of the Post-Apocalyptic genre. Although it wasn't the first to use the idea, it did pioneer the standards on how the genre should be done, from a futuristic and bleak desert landscape, to scrappy resources, to crazy punk fashions, to the mad and totalitarian society; every apocalyptic film after that had a pint of influence that came from the series.

Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone, Immortal, and Emperor are the collective Trope Codifiers for Black Metal, particularly the Second Wave. For the First Wave, the codifiers are generally agreed to be Bathory, Hellhammer, and Celtic Frost.
For Viking Metal, the codifiers are Enslaved and Graveland.
Silencer and Xasthur codified Depressive/Suicidal Black Metal.
Burzum and Darkthrone also codified the one- or two-man studio-only metal band. While not the first metal bands to do this, and not even the first Black Metal bands to do it (see latter-day Bathory for an example), they were the first bands where such and arrangement was a central part of their identities, and given their status as major inspirations for many bands, many of those band unsurprisingly also set themselves up like them.

Shakugan no Shana and The Familiar of Zero popularized the Tsundere stereotype. While Evangelion had already introduced one of the most popular tsunderes in anime, Shana popularized the concept of the Shana Clone, and Familiar was the one of the first works to use it.

Rebel Without a Cause and American Graffiti made the teen movie a popular and profitable genre with its use of teenage wangst and parties, that teenagers around the world loved and related to. However, films such as Mean Girls and American Pie innovated the genre further by adding pre-marital sex and fascist school hierarchy to the mix, to the point that years later, other teen films are still duplicating these elements.

In the public eye, Cannibal Corpse is generally held responsible for popularizing Death Metal outside the metal underground, but Deicide, Morbid Angel, and Obituary were the trope codifiers in the metal scene, being among the first true bands in the genre. For the Swedish scene, the codifier is generally considered to be Entombed or Dismember.
For Technical Death Metal, the codifiers are Atheist, Death, and Necrophagist for "straight" tech, Cynic, Edge of Sanity and Opeth for prog-tech, Suffocation and Origin for brutal tech, and Gorguts for experimental tech.
Melodic Death Metal's major codifiers are At the Gates, In Flames, and Dark Tranquillity for the genre as a whole, Children of Bodom for Power Metal/Neoclassical Metal-inspired melodeath, Soilwork for Alternative Metal-tinged forms, Ensiferum for Folk Metal-melodeath fusions, and Wintersun for symphonic melodeath.

Malcolm in the Middle is the trope codifier for the single camera, on-location, Laugh Track-free sitcom that became popular on United States broadcast television during the 2000's. There were a handful of pre-Malcolm shows that featured such setups, but these (namely The Adventures of Pete & Pete and The Larry Sanders Show, both of which qualify as the Trope Maker of such setups) aired on either pay or niche cable channels as opposed to the then-more popular broadcast television networks.
A year before Malcolm premiered, Spaced did the same thing for British sitcoms.

Although there were definitely 3D beat'em ups/hack-and-slashers in the PS1/Sega Saturn/Nintendo 64 era, the first Devil May Cry gave the genre new popularity and credence and is widely seen as the key inspiration for similar "Stylish Action" games like God of War, Ninja Gaiden (the Xbox revival), and Spiritual Successor Bayonetta (created by Hideki Kamiya, who also created Devil May Cry and directed the first game). Many subsequent titles in the genre either directly take inspiration for it or, via aping direct so-to-speak offspring like aforementioned God of War, indirectly draw from it.

EverQuest is the Trope Codifier for just about every single MMO trope of today. While it wasn't the first of its kind (MUDs and Ultima Online get that title), it was the first to establish the model that other MMOs would follow, up to and including World of Warcraft.
World of Warcraft later became a second Trope Codifier for the MMO genre.

Arguably, the Italian proto-slasher giallo film A Bay of Blood was the trope codifier for Friday the 13th (1980) itself (and, by extension, slasher movies with its derivative formula), featuring the aforementioned Death by Sex trope; a seemingly desolate forest setting (on an idyllic waterfront, no less); an exceedingly high body count; and an all-around liberal employment of Gorn. Indeed, both Friday the 13th and its first sequel directly recreated certain scenes from A Bay of Blood (including spearing a copulating couple to death twice and embedding a sharp instrument in a respective victim's face). Earlier gialli (and American slasher antecedents such as Psycho) also employed certain variations of these tropes, but not in formulaic tandem with one another.

Oklahoma! can also be considered the Trope Codifier for integrated musicals in general. Prior "musicals" were generally either plays interrupted by occasional songs or flimsy plots that were just an excuse to move between song and dance numbers. Show Boat is usually considered the first musical to integrate song, dance, and story, but it was hard for others to imitate. Oklahoma! provided a template that other musicals used pretty much until Andrew Lloyd Webber showed up.

Peter Rabbit along with his sisters Mopsy, Flopsy, and Cottontail from The Tale of Peter Rabbit serve as the codifier for the earliest use of bunnies seen eating a carrot which has become a major stereotype for bunnies in general. The rabbit characters could also be one of the earliest uses of rabbits seen in media that are portrayed as cute and adorable looking which wasn't a common trope for bunnies back when the original story was made in 1901. But would later become one of the more well-known tropes associated for rabbits besides the Rascally Rabbit Trope which had also been made popular by Bugs Bunny.

Warhammer is a strong contender for the Dark Fantasy genre. While the concept of a less-than-happy fantasy obviously existed before (the fathers of fantasy fiction — J.R.R. Tolkien and R.E.

The Birth of a Nation pulled together all of the little camera tricks and editing techniques that were tried in the early years of film into a coherent set of storytelling tools, making it one of the most important movies in the history of film. It was also horrendously racist. The gymnastics film history classes have to go through because of this are quite amusing.
The film caused such a headache for critic Roger Ebert when he repeatedly considered featuring it in his Great Movies series of essays that he always held off writing about it. When he finally decided to address it, he did it in two parts, explaining to readers that Part 1 would discuss the racism and history, just to get it out of the way. Part 2 would then be free to discuss the art of filmmaking without offending anyone. Even with the boundaries clearly defined, he had a heck of time writing that essay.
Triumph of the Will was this for certain cinematographic techniques. It is not this for the documentary genre (it is almost completely bereft of commentary - the subject material get to stand on its own, it's just that it is cleverly filmed and ordered to encourage the 'right' emotion), but this doesn't really help film historians in dealing with it.

Kizuna Ai may not be the first "Virtual Vlogger" but she is responsible for coining and popularizing the concept of "Virtual YouTubers" that sprung up in the late 2010's, including the use of motion-capture and framing videos as a real person filming themselves (while obscuring the performer behind them), and the activities involved such as a combination of vlogging, Let's Plays, and singing. Her "AI living in Cyberspace" persona also led to many of her imitators making at least token gestures to being Ambiguously Human and/or Trapped in Another World.

"Superstar" Billy Graham created the "flamboyant bodybuilder" wrestler archetype as we understand it today, directly inspiring Hulk Hogan - and, also, probably serving as wrestling's Trope Maker for Real Men Wear Pink.

Richard Wagner coined the term "leitmotif" in an 1851 essay and codified the concept in his famous cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, which he had been working on at the time. But the trope was invented two decades earlier by Hector Bérlioz, who called it "idée fixe" in his own writings.

Using Auto-Tune for a robotic effect didn't become prominent until the arrival of T-Pain in 2005. Unlike other artists that relegated it to subtle uses or genres aiming for a digitalized sound (such as electronica or techno), T-Pain used it obviously and flagrantly on nearly all of his releases. His huge success led to a slew of imitators within pop, R&B, and hip hop.

Quake is the codifier for the 'mouselook' control scheme, where instead of only using a keyboard to control an FPS character, you control the view with a mouse as well. Bungie's Marathon is the Ur-Example, The Terminator: Future Shock is the Trope Maker, but due to Marathon being on the Apple platform, and The Terminator: Future Shock just not being popular, it took until Quake and its innovative online multiplayer before the mouselook feature became codified.

The Lucha Libre Internacional match in 1977 featuring Huracan Ramirez and Black Shadow teaming up with El Santo to face Negro Navarro, El Signo and El Texano, the latter team becoming known as "Los Missioneros de La Muerte" in the aftermath of a truly frightening rematch with Rayo de Jalisco Shadow's place, is what made the six man "tercias" match the most popular match type in Mexico and synonymous with Lucha Libre. Blackman, Kato Kung Lee and Kung Fu are in turn the trope codifier for the tecnico trio as Los Tres Fantasticos, since Los Missioneros de La Muerte prior fued had really been more about Santo, with his partners their to make things even than being a unit in their own right.

Also on mods/user-made maps, Defense of the Ancients is not the Maker for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. The concept was Made by Aeon of Strife from the StarCraft days and DotA itself took or adapted ideas from predecessors in the genre. However, DotA is the best-known example of the type, the first to become big enough to be a competitive title, and it's no great stretch to claim that dedicated games like League of Legends or Demigod would not exist without it.

GURPS quite literally defined the Weirdness Magnet trope. (Blue Devil is the Trope Maker here)
With its iconic clean attribute/skill/advantage/disadvantage four-way split, GURPS is probably also the codifier for Skill Scores and Perks. (Champions already did something similar, but blurred the lines by having several distinct types of perks - including an entire build-your-own construction system for superpowers, which it in turn is probably both codifier and Ur-Example for.)

Even though DOOM was the Ur-Example of the Space Marine trope in videogames, Halo became the poster boy for the trope for the post-2000 generation. It also didn't actually pioneer any of the revolutions in gameplay it featured (all of them, from limited inventory, to Regenerating Health, to Quick Melee attacks, to separate buttons for firearms and grenades, had been done before in previous games), but it is unquestionably the game which popularized them all to the point that most modern First Person Shooters now use them by default.

Pong is usually considered the first Video Game by the general public. The actual first Video Game is debatable depending on how you define Video Game, ranging from an unnamed game of Cathode Ray Tube Amusement Device in 1947 to the 1972-released Magnavox Odyssey game console (the strongest contender turning out to lie smack in the middle, 1962's Space War!), but the consensus is that Pong is the Trope Codifier rather than the true Trope Maker.

Sherlock Holmes is the Trope Codifier for many detective tropes; Edgar Allan Poe's C. Auguste Dupin stories were the Trope Maker, including such tropes as the less astute Watson figure as narrator and the far-reaching deductions based on attention to seemingly trivial details.
A second possibility, wildly popular at the time but now more obscure, is The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. It placed such concepts as the private detective helping out the near useless police and the Locked Room Mystery into the popular consciousness a few decades before Doyle's novels.

Dead Rising is most likely the codifier for the whole popular "zombie apocalypse from the inside of a mall" trope, even though it was released as recently as 2006. It has been done many time since, notably by Left 4 Dead 2 (released 2009), with the second half of its "Dead Center" campaign, which takes place entirely in a mall. This was most likely an intentional parody of Dead Rising, as Valve has made references to Dead Rising before, like how Dead Rising had an achievement called "Zombie Genocider" which required you to kill 53,594 zombies (the population of the town), and Left 4 Dead (2008) featured an achievement called "Zombie Genocidist" which required you to kill 53,595 zombies, upping it by exactly one.

The infamous Rockstar Games masterpiece, Manhunt, is the mascot for supposed video games that turns people into sadistic killers. Even going so far as that, after its release, almost every major murder incident in the world had something to do with the game, and since then, it has been the bane of lawyers and parents alike.
It only got worse when they release a sequel Manhunt 2, which was playable on the Wii. Yes, you can play the game in near virtual simulation with the Wii Remote as your "weapon".

Black Hawk Down is the first major movie that popularized modern, 21st century (although the movie actually takes place in 90s, the principle is intact) warfare. This movie is majorly responsible for the games like Modern Warfare, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Resident Evil 5.

Duke Nukem 3D pretty much started the trend of realistic/organic level design in FPSes. While Quake was far superior from a technological standpoint (being the first all-3D FPS) the levels were infamously bland with green castle followed by grey castle followed by brown dungeon. Duke had levels with never before seen interactivity. Light switches, mirrors, CCTVs, wall sockets that electrocute you, televisions, rooms that make sense (like a bar, hotel rooms, nightclubs, reactors for the moonbase).

The Bourne Series became this for modern, realistically-presented action thrillers, particularly through its heavy use of documentary-style Jitter Cam, liberal use of Le Parkour, and brutally-efficient fight scenes, as well as giving a new shot of adrenaline to the One-Man Army trope. While the likes of Michael Mann and Luc Besson had made films in this style before, the success of the Bourne franchise saw it explode in the mid-2000s.

Sailor Moon is frequently cited as the first user of the Magical Girl Warrior subset of Magical Girl shows. Cutey Honey used some of the tropes, but was usually seen as a straight-up Super Hero, especially since at the time "Magical Girl" meant Cute Witch.
The other codifer for the Magical Girl genre in general is widely considered to be Cardcaptor Sakura.

Although he wasn't the first, Deadpool by far is the most well-known character who breaks the fourth wall. Virtually every media about him from comics to memes lack the aforementioned wall (and he knows it).
