* In ''WebVideo/BenMcYellow'', [[TropeOverdosed the entire thing]] is seemingly an [[AffectionateParody affectionate]] attempt to stuff as many fantasy, superhero, and genre conventions into a series of 10-minute zero-budget [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qbt1h_XBRgU&index=2&list=PL9fGHMcRLx6gU9ZLieogw3HJTU9C53HAA videos]] as possible [[NoBudget ((only with no special effects, sets, costumes, or more than four actors)]]. [[note]] For example, the WholeEpisodeFlashback part 1 of the SequelSeries has the hero's DoomedHometown (represented in its entirety by [[FunnyMoments a wooden sign reading "our village" on it]]) destroyed by TheDragon and his army of [[FacelessGoons faceless]] GasMaskMooks. The BigBad is a [[EvilIsNotWellLit dimly lit]] [[FaceFramedInShadow shadowed]] DarthVaderClone serving the [[BiggerBad "Skeleton King"]]. The [[MentorOccupationalHazard doomed mentor]] performs a TakingTheBullet HeroicSacrifice, whereupon the hero lets out an [[{{Narm}} over]]-[[NarmCharm the]]-[[LargeHam top]] BigNo. [[/note]] It's all PlayedForLaughs, though.

* ''Hoshiiro Girldrop'', the ShowWithinAShow of ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'' is [[InvokedTrope deliberately designed]] to be as much of a cliche HaremSeries as possible. And of course, ''Pop Team Epic'' [[SurrealHumor being]] ''Pop Team Epic'', it can't go more than a chapter (in manga) or an 5 minute segment (in the anime) before [[HostileShowTakeover Popuko hijacks it]]. The only aspect of the series that takes itself seriously is its anthology, which appropriately looks like any anthology series for an established manga.

** In the anime, all of the Space Neko Company shorts are genre spoofs played straight. "DONCA SIS" in particular is practically distilled Shoujo romance, with Popuko

* The point of ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' is to be a Category-5 Cliché Hurricane, especially for RealityTV tropes. PlayedForLaughs.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans'' does this deliberately, invoking almost every well-known trope in the alien invasion genre. The locations Crypto visits represent Cliche Storm parodies of various countries.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsInTheSky'' is what you'd get if you drew up a list of every Eastern RPG trope in the book, then built a detailed world to explain and justify said tropes. We've got a spunky, outgoing heroine with a staff, a reserved boy who keeps to himself with a mysterious past, a princess that lives a normal life until she's called to take up her family responsibilities, a loner swordsman with a sour disposition who comes to protect a much younger girl who acts as his anchor, and so on. But the scale is downsized from saving the world to traveling the local kingdom, the dialogue is full of incidental chatter about daily lives and the people in towns with their own subplots and personalities, making Liberl feel like a living, breathing place that didn't just spring to life when the protagonists were born to be saved. It also helps that Estelle and Joshua flip the usual roles of who's the viewpoint character. Joshua has all the trademarks of a angsty male lead, but the game's story is largely seen through Estelle's innocent outlook who subverts the idealized image of a heroine. Sure she's a GenkiGirl who beleives the best in people, but she's also a slob, prefers physical activity and wearing practical clothes but is fully comfortable with girly things from time to time, can be utterly clueless, and isn't aware of the darker implications of her world. Putting all this together creates an experience that grounds cliches so thoroughly that a player can become invested in things they know are bound to happen.

* Nearly anything written by Diane Warren, including Céline Dion's "Because You Loved Me" ("You were my strength when I was weak / You were my voice when I couldn't speak...") or [=LeAnn=] Rimes (or Music/TrishaYearwood's) "How Do I Live" ("How do I live without you? I want to know / How do I breathe without you if you ever go? / How do I ever, ever survive?). Also, count how many times she used the phrase "in this moment" in Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing".

* Creator/{{Pixar}} seems fond of this trope.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' is often regarded as this, considering it stars [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses a rebellious princess]] (all too common in Disney films) and struggled a bit to distinguish itself from previous movies such as ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon''. To its credit, though, it did take a more subversive take on the worn formula it operated on.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' is considered to be the first of these. It's easy to imagine a little counter in the corner dinging whenever you see a Pixar cliché. Stranger in a community or group? Check. Brooding moment from a side character? Check. Wacky sidekick who forms a comedic duo with the main character? Check. Said group full of wacky members with their own quirks? Check. All of the development threatens to go downhill when something happens to separate or alienate the stranger? Check. They all decide they like this new stranger and want him back in the group? Check. The stranger decides that s/he really is a member of the group? Check. It doesn't help it's a beat-for-beat RecycledScript of ''Film/DocHollywood''.

** The spin-off manga series ''Manga/TheVanishingOfNagatoYukiChan'', based off the AlternateUniverse seen in ''Disappearance'', is an ''incredibly'' cliche SliceOfLife shonen romcom series, to the point where the only reasons to even ''read'' it are 1) you are obsessed with everything Haruhi-related or 2) you've never read a single shonen romcom series before, ever.[[note]] or you thought alt Nagato was ''[[{{moe}} adorable]]''...[[/note]]
