    Let's see how many we can think of!

    Note: Cliches do not make an anime bad, bad anime makes an anime bad. Cliches can, if used correctly, contribute just as well to the plot.

    One post= One Cliche

    And Go!

    Blonde hero. Dumb hero. Hero that thinks with stomach. Hero that is so nice they die for random strangers.

    Guys with muscles and abs, specifically Fairy Tail.

    Magical girl usually says after surprise transformation "Wow, is this really me?" or something related to that.

    70-80% of magical girls are ripped off of Sailor Moon.

    Continuous episodes that could run on television until it runs out of money.

    [Do not use specific anime when talking about the cliche. Also, 1 Cliche= 1 Post, unless they are heavily related like my Hero post.]

    Don't give a f--- about art direction? Just make fan service.

    Animes based entirely over school, schoolgirls, or just school related things because it fit's the plot's narrative.

    [Oh, sorry. Didn't see that till now. :I)

    Hero/guy saves girl, tries to hit on her, becomes a never-ending trope in the plot, girl hates him and continues to be snarky, secretly is in love with him, they start warming up to eachother, they both end up together.

    A quiet and reserved guy that doesn't really open up to anyone, girl conflicts with him, ends up opening up to her.

    [It's okay, just want to make it more fun by not letting people mention too many all at once. Also, if anyone mentions a specific Anime people tend to get offended.]

    Villains can never die and go away when the hero(s) defeat them.

    [Haha, I can relate to that last point. I will never do that on Tumblr/Fandom part of Instagram again.]

    Usually a chill and cool guy that is portrayed as a "badass" and a bad boy, but ends up being soft in the inside.
