Annoying Cliches in Stories that are Too Overused

Lunala
EG: Shy nerdy omega girl in those poorly written werewolf stories on Quotev, etc

In my opinion It's OK to use cliches but only in moderation, AND if you add unique elements to it to fit your story.

The Top Ten

1 Shy girl x mean jock

The shy girl gets bullied by the jock then they fall in love. UGH I hate this cliche with a burning passion. it's too predictable and annoying! I swear that sometimes I hate this cliche more than A Pal For Gary, roaches and One Direction combined. - Lunala

2 Omega x alpha

Go to Quotev and go to a "Mating Ceremony" story. Usually involves werewolves and a "5'2 nerdy omega girl" getting picked by "Alpha Claw, most feared alpha ever! 1! " I hate the ugly dorito chinned Gary Stu alphas. And the Mary Sue protagonists. Quotev werewolf stories stink of crap to the core.
"Mate." He growled. SERIOUSLY? That's creepy and sometimes the alpha is 23 and the omega is 16. How pedophillic! - Lunala

3 Enemies falling in love

I hate this. - Lunala

4 Excessively tragic backstory

A few tragic events are interesting but don't make tragic stories too cliche. - Lunala

5 "orbs" instead of eyes

Stupid. Also I imagine creepy crystal balls instead of eyes. Just use eyes instead, eyes sounds better and less hex-ish. - Lunala

6 Tough girl who has to remind everyone she's a girl every 5 seconds

It's completely OK to have tough girls or tomboys, just give them a creative personality as well and don't cram it down our throats that they can take care of themselves every 5 seconds. - Lunala

7 Dumb blonde

I have met blondes who are really smart. I wonder who overuses this cliche *cough* DISNEY CHANNEL *cough* - Lunala

8 All popular girls like the colour pink

Some do, but not all of them. - Lunala

9 Characters discovering that they are royalty

Eh not the worst (Tsunami from Wings Of Fire pulled this off really well). If done wrong it sucks though. - Lunala

10 Orphanage to hero

Character who is from an orphanage but later becomes a hero. Not as bad as other cliche tropes, but can be pandering at times. - Lunala
