* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series is split between Cliché Storm games and games which avert it: games one, two, three, six, eight, eleven and twelve fall under this (one and six being identical in how they do it!), whereas four, five, seven, nine and ten don't. (Worth noting that eleven and twelve are remakes). To be fair, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Archanea]]'' wasn't [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny as cliche in their day as they seem now]] - consider Archanea helped establish the genre it's a part of; compare ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Sword of Seals]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones The Sacred Stones]]'', which were about a decade and a half after Archanea.

Remember, this is [[TropesAreTools not a bad thing]]; many Cliché Storms are good in quality, as good stories, characters, humor, action, or whatever can make up for the lack of originality. You can also see from some examples that people often ''intentionally'' create as big a Cliché storm as possible... and then start having fun with all of the Clichés. Oftentimes, they may not start around deconstructing or playing with the cliches as so much play it for laughs. It's very common in an AffectionateParody - most of the times, they start poking fun at these Cliches. Very often, something may be intended as an homage, and it may be wise to look at them as such.

Remember, this is [[TropesAreTools not always a bad thing]]; many a Cliché Storm happen to be good in quality for the same reasons that StrictlyFormula series can be, ''because'' of its familiarity. People don't have to pay attention to the shape of the story, and instead focus on what's inside.

* The ''SwordOfTruth'' series. Everything from a common man of [[LukeIAmYourFather mysterious lineage]], to a [[TheObiWan wise old wizard]] with robes and white hair, to a character that was turned into a small, fanatical creature when deprived of the artifact that was precious to him.

* Renny Harlin's ''The Legend of Hercules'' is a perfect storm of AncientGrome clichés, including scenes blatantly ripping off ''Film/ThreeHundred'', ''Film/{{Gladiator}}, and ""Film/ClashOfTheTitans''.

Remember, this is [[TropesAreTools not always a bad thing]]; many a Cliché Storm is also a [[GuiltyPleasures guilty pleasure]], or even, dare we say it, [[{{Troperiffic}} exactly what the audience wants in the first place]].

An important thing to note is that, as we enter the 21st century, the sheer number of works created makes it nearly impossible to write something "original". Also, our ability to securely store books and films in libraries makes it easy to access old works. That can make the newer material ''appear'' to be cliché storms, simply because we could see [[FollowTheLeader the similarity to countless older stories]]. Or, conversely, it can [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny make a groundbreaking older work seem like a cliché storm due to its many imitators]]. With all that, Cliché Storm is about to become one of the most heard of tropes in the near-future. This is why we warn you that TVTropesWillRuinYourLife.

* The Introduction Arc of ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'' feels like this. It features an OriginalCharacter with a preference [[IWorkAlone for working by himself]] that is the LastOfHisKind through genocide and seeks {{revenge}} against the killer. His partner is a [[RichBitch haughty]] rich girl with a fangirl crush on Soul. The formerís CharacterDevelopment revolves around him [[YouAreNotAlone learning to trust others again]] through the PowerOfFriendship. Thankfully, it's just a starting point and [[ItGetsBetter doesn't last long]].
* Parodied in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fic ''[[FanFic/WhenInDoubtObliviate When in Doubt, Obliviate]]'' when Snape took exception to several standard cliches during a teacher's meeting.

** In fact, it hits up more tropes than expected, particularly during the middle section, which unfortunately bores the GenreSavvy person who knows exactly what the main character's going to decide to do, and just wants him to GetOnWithItAlready.
