frenemies

Watch out for those "smug" people who get inserted into the main cast. One minute you know they are aiding you, then BAM they turn against you and work for the antagonist.

-"Oh, who's that guy? He looks like a model. Oh, and who's that girl with him? She doesn't suit him at all~"
I have no idea how many times I've heard that line

Any high school or middle school anime setting. Any excessively nieve main character put into rediculously improbable situations and magically gains superpowers. Any series incapable of balancing plot with the number of panty shots. Anything remotely boy-love. Any mecha show incapable of actually being interesting without spontaniously bursting into song. Anything emo, especially emo vampires.

lol your enjoying this topic I take it XD?

"Thanks for throwing my team under the bus jerk"

This would go with the frenemies cliche I posted. Basically the same thing. The former "ex-friend" would do this at the expense of his own ideals.

Whistle!
Shige, does a complete 180 (manga).

This upsets Mizuno obviously.

In sports, it's because they would want to test their strength against their former team
In action, it's cuz they want to assist the antagonist. Which the threat becomes just as high. As the former friend is 10x as powerful

Does this happen often enough to qualify as a cliche?

There is no example that comes immediately to mind, and with most cliches mentioned here, it is hard not to think of a few.

-The main villain is a long lost relative of the MC
my face when every time.


MC is the chosen one. Is 16 or younger.
MC and his gang of teenage buddies can defeat trained adult soldiers.
MC refuses to kill humans despite the fact they have killed countless monsters.
MC won't kill final villain in fear of becoming like him.
My face when every time!

It's happened in a few animes that I have seen.
And I DID provide an example: cans (Akikan!)
Also, in C3 a girl popped out of a cube

I can deal with everything else except the airhead in romance/harem anime that ALWAYS ends up with the guy in the end. (that and usually her boobs are huge) flat-chested Tsundere always get my vote.
o o o and a MC who is too naive or stupid to actually understand that someone likes them.

Towards the end of a fight, character #1(usually the villian) launches an overwhelming attack on Character #2 (usually the hero).
Smoke,etc clears, showing Character #2 is still standing/getting back to their feet. Then, it happens... Character #1 looks shocked and says..."IMPOSSIBILE!!!"

Someone please---even just ONCE--- cut out the "IMPOSSIBLE!!!"

Protagonist displaying amazing powers on episode 1.

I prefer to see him/her grow from zero.

I hate it how some of the male leads are so dense. How can they not notice that a girl has feelings for them? I also hate pointless fan service.
