22 Main Character Has Nothing Unique Main Character Has Nothing Unique

Yui from Diabolik Lover is one of them... - HoneyClover

Every Digimon Main male as Tai,Davis and the others.
Typical all shounen Characters!

23 Nosebleeds Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds can't actually happen from lust. - Swellow

Who the hell has a nosebleed when you get turned on?

I'm looking at you, Soul Eater. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Now blushing I get but nosebleeds? - Adventurur2

24 Wish Fulfillment Lead Protagonist

I want to be hokage pirate king

25 You know how the antagonist killed all those people and tormented me? Yeah well now that I caught him lets forgive him. You know how the antagonist killed all those people and tormented me? Yeah well now that I caught him lets forgive him.

So many series are guilty of this and I hate it! In this image, I can agree that Obito was WAY too easily forgiven. He caused so much damage, killed so many people and caused a war. Yet the characters forgive him? That's just disturbing and unbelievable. Could you imagine if that happened in real life? The world would be scary place to live in. - HoneyClover

Itachi did it for a good reason. - listotaku17

So become friends with the badguy - Adventurur2

26 Girl Gropes Other Girl's Breasts Girl Gropes Other Girl's Breasts

Mother of the image! - ChatNoirFan18

I'll just pretend I didn't see that... - Entranced98

Wow, wasn't expecting that picture to pop up. - HoneyClover

27 Cat Girls Cat Girls

You mean a neko? - Adventurur2

*cough* *cough* Nekopara- *Cough* - ClassicGaminer

28 Magical Girlfriend Magical Girlfriend
29 Big Breasted Girls Big Breasted Girls
30 Horrible Childhood Horrible Childhood

Some anime shoehorns in flat and overdone variants of this for the sake of being angsty - unfortunately it ends up trivialising abuse, bullying, poverty, family problems and other extreme hardships that could bring a black cloud over childhood. The fact it's also done often with 'Mary Sue' characters makes it even worse. - Entranced98

31 Bland Harem Leads Bland Harem Leads

Every hot guys needs a harem - Adventurur2

32 Trap Characters Trap Characters

You know, like cross-dressers, or characters that look a certain age, but turn out to either be really young or centuries old.

If you haven't watched Fairy Tail yet, look up Mavis Vermilion. How old do you think that 'kid' is? Or Piccolo? How old do you think he is when he was training Gohan? - Goku02

Or Disguised Characters, am I right? - ChatNoirFan18

33 Becoming The Very Thing You Hate The Most Becoming The Very Thing You Hate The Most

Eren turning out to be a Titan, Rin turning out to be the son of Satan...

Me turning out to be an anime character - Adventurur2

34 Hot Springs/Bath Scenes Hot Springs/Bath Scenes

This is just to see the girls in only bath towels, and eventually naked. When you're tired of all the breast jokes in the anime, you have to see them naked. It doesn't help with the fact that they have competitions over who has the biggest boobs. Plain weird. - sandycheeks

I'll be honest here. That bath scene with Asuna in Sword Art Online II was uncalled for. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Because fan service!...I guess? - HoneyClover

I'd love to walk in on a hot spring - Adventurur2

35 Unkillable Characters Unkillable Characters

These characters are characters that don't suffer a single scratch after a long battle - PrinceOfFire

All the main characters in Fairy Tail are unkillable... - HoneyClover

Plot armor.

Erza is lovable (because of how badass, sexy she is), at least compared to some other anime characters like the worst of Sonic X (re: Chris Thorndyke, Amy Rose, Ella and Bokun), Misa Aname, Lucy Heartfilia, Chi-Chi, Shou Tucker, Sakura Haruno, etc. - The Ultimate Daredevil

36 Characters Get Naked Characters Get Naked

School days, - Adventurur2

37 Main Character is an Excessive Eater Main Character is an Excessive Eater

This has Goku, Naruto and Luffy written all over it. - To

38 Underage Girls Get Sexual Assaulted

I'm voting my own thing

Never seen this yet - Adventurur2

39 Overly Cutesy Characters Overly Cutesy Characters

A girl in a cat-suit - Adventurur2

40 Main Character Isn't Perverted Towards Love Interest Main Character Isn't Perverted Towards Love Interest

This leads to some inconsistent characterization. - drdevil

...But the chart says... - HoneyClover

Not a cliche - listotaku17
