Am I the only one who thinks the Atomic Betty example is just complaining?

Is Big Hero 6 an example of a cliché storm? It has every super-hero movie cliché ever. It even lampshades some of them.

Yeah, I'd say so.

In the videogames section i manage to find a example of cliche storm: Resident Evil 4. However, unlike the other examples, theres no explanation on WHY is a Cliche Storm. Can someone help?

I wouldn't say it's a Cliche Storm, it's a lot different from the other Resident Evil games.

It's not a storm of cliches from Resident Evil, but it kinda is a Cliché Storm of fantastically awful action flicks. Lone guy sent in to save The President's Daughter, winds up in a creepy foreign village with a dark secret, fights through waves of mooks to eventually deal with a cult that's trying to take over the world. Along the way he's aided by a mysterious Femme Fetale whose motives are unclear, and has to square off against his former teammate turned evil. Not to mention his mission control and useless helicopter pilot who exists solely to have banter with and then die (as all helicopter pilots do).

... damn, now I want to replay the game.

There appear to be two tropes masquerading as one in this article. One where the plot of a piece of work will lapse into using lots of clichés and another wherein the characters will spout off proverbs (or clichés) at each other. These two are similar in name only and it only makes sense to separate them into two different articles or at least explain the difference in the introductory paragraphs.
