Title: Insert Creative Title About Cliche Here
Post by: Nyran on December 05, 2012, 06:19:33 AM
Oh boy, have I wanted to make this topic. So, this is in tv, book, games, in general, but I wanted to make a list of Stereotypical characters and cliches in anime specifically. I'll give an example of one of the most common

1. The Angst Ridden Emo Guy

If someone will continue?

Post by: Rolina on July 07, 2013, 07:53:31 PM
42.  There is a power that's said to be evil or wicked (ex:  Darkness, Madness, etc).  In order to win, the hero/heroine must dive headstrong into using that power for at least one battle, if not for the future of the series.

43.  The fandom will always, ALWAYS, prefer the Darkness!/Madness!Version of that character over the canon one, because of how badass 42's fight was.
