Top 10 Superheroes Show Cliches


The Top Ten

1 Main characters are unpopular kids

The most overused stereotype. Spiderman, Randy Cunningham, Danny Phantom, and American Dragon are the perfect example of this. Miraculous also a superheroes show. But, Marinette is "fashion designer" stereotype while Adrien is "a rich fashion model" stereotype. - ChatNoirFan18

2 Love triangle

The only shows who have love square is Miraculous. This thing is the most overused! - ChatNoirFan18

3 Spoiled brats

All they did was harrassing the main character. Gladly, Randy Cunningham didn't have spoiled brat. - ChatNoirFan18

4 The chosen hero The chosen hero

The chosen one cliches are getting boring. However, some shows can do the chosen hero correctly such as Avatar - Cartoonfan202

Did anyone here knows Trollhunters? You guys see the main character named Jim on this show. There is no reason why he get chosen. He just found that stupid stone and that stupid stone choose him randomly. - ChatNoirFan18

The "chosen one" is often a mary-sue. And it annoys me more when the "chosen one" gets chosen for nothing - FireWasp2004

The so-called "chosen hero" clich├ęs are getting old now. - DynastiSugarPop
