After seeing dozens and dozens of anime I have noticed that there are several common "ingredients" that consistently appear in most anime. Here are a few that I've noticed:

Much to my disappointment, female characters are fairly useless in fighting anime: even if they start out "kicking ass" they end up as dead weight that has to be protected by the male "hero" (Lenalee - DGM; Sakura - Naruto; Yuya - Samurai Deeper Kyo)



Food is consumed in VERY large quantities with little regard to table manners (Goku - Saiyuki; Allen - DGM; Lina - Slayers; Goku - DBZ)



At least one of the central characters will have mighty muscles and a mini brain (Yusuke - Yuyuhakusho; Goku - DBZ; Gauri - Slayers)



The characters will recover within minutes from a beating that had them on the verge of death (Ichigo - Bleach; Kenshin - Rorouni Kenshin; Ginji - Get Backers)



The main characters will almost always include a character who's main purpose is to provide comic relief (Kuabara -Yuyuhakusho; Shippo - Inuyasha; Ayame / Shigure - Fruits Basket)



Okay that's a few I've come up with. Now I know that these truths aren't absolute, but I'd love to know if anyone else has a few more to add to this list.

School Uniforms: The characters seem to rather enjoy doing everything in their school uniform. (Kuwabara – Yu Yu Hakusho; Kagome – Inuyasha)

From Villain to Hero: Every anime has at least one character that makes the transition from bad to good. In most cases it takes a hard fought fight with the hero for this character to see a new light. (Aoshi – Rurouni Kenshin; Hiei – Yu Yu Hakusho)

Villains True Form: As the villains demise looms near they usually have one final transformation to spare. Apart from the obvious increase in strength, they typically get bigger and uglier as well. (Kuro Momotaro – Yu Yu Hakusho; Freeza – DBZ)

Sidekicks: The main hero normally has a number of friends. One of which is there trusted sidekick. (Gauri – Slayers; Kuwabara – Yu Yu Hakusho)
