18 Cliches Only Anime Fans Will Understand

Updated 16 Oct 2019 1.4m views18 items

Every anime fan knows that there are tropes that can be found in almost every series, but which are the ones that we see the most? Here is Ranker's list of the most blatant anime cliches. These funny anime cliches transcend genres and demographics, as they can be found in just about every series that's out there. Anime fans will also enjoy these monthly anime subscription boxes and anime loot crates.

Admittedly some of these tropes can be found in plenty of fictional works that aren't necessarily anime, but the idea here was to include only cliches that anime fans will really understand. We invest so much of our time watching these series, and understanding these inside jokes is our reward! If you have an obvious anime cliche that is missing from the list, let us know in the comments and we might just add it!
