Whats the point of making an OP character, granted that if we see him train or gets some drugs that strengthens himself up but at least make the characters killable and also this cliche will lead up to being a Gary Stu - PrinceOfFire
<-- That explains everything - PrinceOfFire
Kirito, Shiba, Orochimaru, Ayato, etc. - HoneyClover
That image...what the hell? - HoneyClover
Someone upload an image for Subaru Natsuki of Re:Zero, when he is crying in this item. - SelfDestruct
I'm looking at you, Yukiteru Amano.
This has Goku, Naruto and Luffy written all over it. - To
Juvia Lockser, Boa Hancock, Anna Nishikinomiya, and Yuno Gasai are some examples.
How about Serena (Pokémon XY), she attempts to have Ash notice her, but fails miserably. Serena is one of them, I'm glad she's GONE! - ClassicGaminer
Seen this WAY too often. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
This happened in Miraculous Ladybug opening. Especially, in the last scene of the opening (i know Miraculous is not an anime) - ChatNoirFan18
Oh wait, Danny Phantom uses this cliche (i know it's not an anime). Especially, on the lyric "Goona catch'em causes he's Danny Phantom" aka the scene when Danny chased a frightened blue ghost. - ChatNoirFan18
Yep. - Emberleap
I don't know why a lot of characters run in the opening and ending sequence.
But the character stands in the landscapes is weird.
Also,when they suprise they say,
"Uh",Eee"etc. in close-up.
IKR! This must be on the very bottom of this list of a hundred items.
But how are fighting shounens supposed to work without power-ups? O_O - Goku02
Apparently dozens of these anime ova's EXIST, including the filler show that is Extended Edition - PrinceOfFire
This is just a wrong excuse to make porn of of your anime examples of this are the 9 atrocious Fairy OVA's especially
OVA 1: Welcome to Fairy Hills and OVA9: Fairies' Christmas Party - PrinceOfFire
The Saiyans, InuYasha, Naruto ( he has cat whiskers lol ),..etc... - Goku02
I could give you multiple examples already from a single anime which I rather not mention but these two are Kirito and Asuna. - PrinceOfFire
If there is an explanation on why this guy gets revived (i.e AOT) then yes, you may use it but if it's trash like SAO and you don't provide a decent explanation(i.e Kirito beating Heathcliff even if he is already at 0/100 health) - PrinceOfFire
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
I know this feeling ;_; - HoneyClover
This is in almost every anime. Probably because it hits that demographic better if your characters are a bunch of teens. - HoneyClover
That is too common and while I can see some anime making it work (AOT because they constantly need new soldiers but they show that they are not all powerful and need to grow and learn).
