    Some guy rescues some woman he doesn't know anything about, and risks his own life to save her while she lies weak and helpless.

    The main protagonist's girlfriend is so sexy and cute but she never gets naked (Maybe once in episode 44).

    Every special move, plan, operation or group has to have a ridiculous name

    The main hero becomes a bad guy but somehow a good guy but then at the end he's bad and gets killed by a death god.

    The protagonist almost always has a very annoying catchphrase that he always whispers or shouts out loud.

    The only sequel is a movie that needs a sequel.

    There's always a guy with a tortured past, who sometimes flips over to the good guys' side. Or vise-versa

    There's always a legendary, unbeatable person, but all the bad guys (or the good guys) still want to try kicking his ass anyway.

    Humungous swords/weapons in general that a normal person couldn't even lift, yet your average schoolgirl can use it efficiently and with flair even while running and jumping.
