* ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' plays every single trope of the SuperRobot genre as straight as an arrow. However, since this series was a deliberate Reconstruction of that genre in response to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', it's purely intentional. [[{{Badass}} And awesome]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'' mainlines on {{Grimdark}} tropes: set AfterTheEnd, featuring a stoic {{Badass}} on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, fighting against the LegionsOfHell, and so on and so forth. General consensus is that it ''works''.

* ''Anime/{{HighschoolDxD}}'' is basically a combination of harem, ecchi, and shonen cliches.

* WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'s first few episodes immediately call into mind familiar anime narrative devices found in the classroom setting and characters.

There's a [[EntitledBastard wealthy, arrogant]] IceQueen who [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold isn't as cruel as she seems]]. There's a HotBlooded CoolBigSis who [[BloodKnight enjoys punching evil in the face]]. It also has a horde of mindless, ugly creatures preying upon humankind, and the main characters are [[WordOfGod explicitly said]] to be based off fairy tales or mythological characters. However, the creators [[TropesAreTools revealed they did this intentionally]] in panels and interviews, so they can use the setup as a jumping-off point to later [[{{Troperiffic}} subvert, flesh out, downplay, or deconstruct those same tropes in later seasons.]]

* ''Anime/FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin'' was criticised for uses many of the tropes from the game series (monsters appearing out of nowhere, romance side-plot, adventure to discover the truth behind supernatural events etc.) and there have been a dozen games. Naturally, this in some areas. General consensus seems to be that is the story and setting are interesting enough, but the characters are very stock.result.



* Creator/{{Pixar}} seems to be falling victim to this trope.

You are in a '''Cliché Storm'''. Do not worry. The pain will soon pass. A bug will soon scrag the [[EnsignNewbie inept Lieutenant]]. Security will soon come to the perimeter. [[YouShallNotPass The line will soon be held]]. It will be over, soon.

Remember, this is [[TropesAreTools not a bad thing]]; originality and greatness aren't necessarily intertwined, and as such, 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.

* ''Franchise/{{Barbie}}'' movies often fall prey to this especially when they're ferociously trying to subvert it in the name of GirlsNeedRoleModels.

Added DiffLines:

* Very intentionally so in ''Literature/TheBelgariad''. It plays the cliches straight, for laughs, and occasionally mildly deconstructs them with the sequel series showing that the characters, having done it before, are very aware of the conventions they're operating under. The characters are a ''lot'' snarkier about it the HereWeGoAgain second time around]].

It doesn't help that the four protagonists are [[PublicDomainCharacter explicitly based off]] fairy tale characters.
