The cliche's depend on the genre of anime

Harem: Bloody noses when thinking pervertedly
Action: Some badass always comes in and steals the show
Mystery: Always starts out with some type of memory loss or amnesia
Adventure: Sh*t happens to some random character and the main character always needs to help
Comedy: The main character is mocked... A lot
Fantasy: The main character gains some new power that always fixes everything

If you guys disagree or have something to add. Let me know

"MY normal life" "just an ordinary kid" "Living in my boring world" it's starting to get annoying when an MC say's this. It won't stop me from watching but it gets old

4. The fact that all attacks are actually given a name. Imagine Lebron James shouting, "Triple Rainbow Arching Three Point Shot" every time he threw a 3 pointer. Ridiculous, right?


I'd sooo become a Heat fan if he did.

Unnatural hair color.

When a main character claims that he/she doesn't want to stand out, but his/her hair is green/pink/purple/blue (as a sign of rebellious years of just being 'young'), that just sends miss signals.

Natural colors: red, brown, black, dirty blonde, blonde, platinum blonde (Ric Flair white hair)

that also brings the idea of the boy being in the women hotspring to only find out he was in the wrong one.

I would say the "bloody nose when thinking pervertedly" part is in pretty much all genres of anime.

It's a good thing you aren't. But, doesn't his ever receding hairline tempt you to be one?

And back to cliches, I have yet to see a tsundere character who wasn't actually cute? (correct me if I'm wrong)

When a character (a "bad guy") hurts another ( main) either physically or emotionally and after the big showdown when the main character is about to get revenge going for the punch, the punch does not land in the face but in the sides or whatever then the main characters starts saying things like " I forgive you". Then suddenly the damned villain starts to realize his/her wrong doings.



then later down the line the hero/protagonist becomes the villian or they were already the villain to start with it was just disguised well

and..


the antagonist/bad guy becomes the new hero/protagonist

then a STRONGER FOE COMES, THE NEW PRO/ANTAGONIST JOIN FORCES BUT THEY DIE SOMEHOW WEATHER THEY SACRIFICE THEM SELVES OR THEY LOSE AND THE VILLAIN WINS

hmmm... how about guy hears a noise in a room and opens it, only to find a girl naked instead of bothering to knock on the door first.
