Added DiffLines:

Though in LongRunners, they'll eventually gain CharacterDevelopment beyond their initial roles.


* ''Series/AlloAllo'': This show made fun of everyone. Rick is a cowardly FrenchJerk with a passionate love life; his waitresses are [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench sexy French women]]; ThoseWackyNazis include: two bumbling enlisted officers, a CampGay lieutenant, and a stoic bespectacled Gestapo officer; the English pilots speak with an [[IAmVeryBritish exaggerated English accent]] and are bothn[[QuintessentialBritishGentleman very polite]] and [[StiffUpperLip stuffy]], Colonel Bertorelli is a MilesGloriosus who [[ItaliansTalkWithHands talks with his hands]], etc.

* While ''VideoGame/TwistedMetal'' games always featured stereotypes among their casts, ''Twisted Metal 3'' came the closest to this trope. Contestants include a stereotypical raver, a sexy environmentalist GranolaGirl, a "get off my lawn"-type granny, a black guy from "the hood" who wants to [[JiveTurkey "kick it with his homies in the crib"]], an expy of ''Music/TheProdigy'''s frontman, a burly construction worker, a GhostRider expy, a crazy deranged homeless guy, etc.

Added DiffLines:

* In the sequel of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfPenAndPaper'' for playable characters we have [[LovableJock the jock]], [[PomPomGirl the cheerleader]], [[BlackAndNerdy the lab rat]], [[SurferDude the surfer]], [[{{Bookworm}} the bookworm]], [[{{Goth}} the goth]], [[ForeignExchangeStudent the exchange student]], [[{{Metalhead}} the rocker]], [[SpoiledSweet the rich kid]] and [[{{Hipster}} the hipster]]. WordOfGod states that they wanted to create a cast of diverse and easily recognizable high school stereotypes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle'' has a stereotypical quartet of high school comedy movie characters in the "real world" a stereotypcial quartet of action comedy characters in the "Jumajii world"... and the juxtaposition is upended between the two when the high school teens get put into the player characters that are their dimaetric opposites in the Jumanji game. The closeted video game nerd ends up in the [[HeroicBuild muscular hero character]], the jock ends up as a glorified backpack, the AlphaBitch ends up in a frumpy portly guy, and the ShrinkingViolet girl ends up in a bare-midriff short-shorts KickChick ActionGirl.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/Banlieue13Ultimatum'': Everyone. From the gangster alliance (Black Rastafarians who look like rejects from the Lord's Resistance Army, robe-clad bearded Arabs, TriggerHappy Portuguese used-car salesmen, tattooed Asian martial artists, and white Neo-Nazi skinheads), to the bad guys ([[OurPresidentsAreDifferent a PR-obsessed French President]] and his EvilChancellor), to the heroes (CowboyCop Damien and {{Neighborhood Friendly Gangster|s}} Leito). It manages to be quite hilarious because of [[ClicheStorm how straight it plays the whole thing]].


* ''Webcomic/{{Polandball}}'', also known as ''Countryballs'' is basically a webcomic born in Website/FourChan about Polandball and his relationship with the other countryballs, all of them represents a NationalStereotype based on actual conducts of every country translated into a personality. First based only on Europe and US, there's already the whole world pictured as countryball (also, not just limited to countries, there're also countyballs and even planetballs).

* ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'' might be one of the oldest examples of this trope. It features a couple of stereotypical cavemen, a RedBaron expy, a couple of army stereotypes, a mob of stereotypical gangsters, a supergenius scientist inventor, a lazy hillbilly with a pet bear, a stereotype lumberjack with a pet beaver, TheChick who is a GirlyGirl obsessed with her looks, and a DastardlyWhiplash-style villain. There's also a racer whose main trait is being a racer, who serves as this cast's "Normal Guy".

* ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' subverts this. The cast initially looks like this trope, consisting of clones of various historical figures rather than their expies. However, the characters themselves don't want to be tied down with other people's preconceptions of the historical figures from whom they're cloned, so they tend to do a complete 180-degree turn in terms of personality: Abe Lincoln is a weak-willed wimp, Joan of Arc went goth, and so on

* ''Series/{{Sense8}}'': Due to having to introduce eight storylines all at once, the global cast comprises NationalStereotypes so the audience doesn't have to fill in the blanks as much. The protagonists are a [[GermanicDepressives serious, possibly sociopathic German]]; a queer San Franciscan intellectual; a [[InscrutableOriental quiet, stoic Korean]] who [[AllAsiansKnowMartialArts is a champion kickboxer]]; a macho {{Telenovela}} actor from Mexico; a cool Nordic DJ; a nice all-American cop; a woman from India nervous about her [[SadBollywoodWedding upcoming wedding]] (complete with a Bollywood dance number early in the first season), and a poor Kenyan man with a mother dying of AIDS. The characters are fleshed out and allowed to be more than these stereotypes, however, even playing with some of them (e.g., the macho Mexican actor is [[ManlyGay closeted]], and the Indian woman is a religious scientist).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/ReCreators'' features a group of AnimeCharacterTypes as the main cast, considering all of them were actually pulled from the realm of fiction. Celesia is a female StockLightNovelHero, Mamika is the naive StockShoujoHeroine of a MagicalGirl series, Yuuya is the arrogant StockShonenRival, Rui is the ClassicAntiHero BigEater mech protagonist, Alicetaria the HurtingHero fantasy lead, and Blitz is the gruff ActionHero. We even get some video game stereotypes in Meteora, resident MrExposition tutorial girl. [[spoiler: From the latecomers' side: StockShonenHero Syo, brooding StockLightNovelHero Charon, and Hikayu, NaiveEverygirl visual novel lead.]]

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Brian''': You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
