When an episode focusing on this one character is clearly a death flag for that character. I hate most of them

In other scenarios, the male character will find the girl(s) by ACCIDENT in a bathtub or changing room and the girl(s) will go all out on him as a way to protect themselves from being "molested" EVEN THOUGH HE NEEDED TIME TO EXPLAIN THAT IT WAS JUST AN ACCIDENT!

You might appreciate a bathroom scene in Haganai Next involving Kodaka and Kate, as it completely avoids those tropes and is more "real life". (Starting at 20:46 in what Funimation lists as episode 20 of Haganai, for those who are curious).

Pointless characters in general are complete cancer.

Can't develop the characters you already have? Just introduce more!

The worst offenders being: Nisekoi, Fairy Tail, and of course SAO.

My biggest "worst cliche" at the moment is the shonen treadmill: fight-lose-train-figiht-win-repeat. Just sick of it...

Or Arin's introductory scene in Trinity Seven. MC walks in on girl in bathroom, girl fails to take offense and MC gets freaked out by the atypical response.

slice of life anime in general get cliche more so then the action type; how lucky can that guy be to walk in so often into the hotspring/changing room that many times, grope, face plant into boobs or look up a skirt. The action type set in a fantasy world generally have a hot-spring type episode and the action type with sci-fi elements like mecha usually don't if they are serious; if not serious something similar to the fantasy setting with one scene like a hot-spring type episode.

Then again, I usually laugh everytime the male lead is punched and kicked. I don't think they use the bloody nose as often anymore as it is more of a drip now, Mai-Hime had a good scene early in the anime where a guy accidently sees something girl when the wind blows her skirt up, blood shoots out like he took a sniper bullet to the head, and that was about the only type of cliche you see as the rest of the series stays serious (but Mai-Hime is old style, rest of anime in recent years is like a comedian with bad jokes and uses as many as the can even though we all know the punch line).
