ITT: Played-out anime tropes you still love seeing anyway.
>When the worthless antagonist-turned-whipping-boy of the MC starts ripping through cannon fodder in the final battle
>character is about to be obliterated
>engulfed in a white light
>character is unleashing some massive attack
>rocks and other debris gets lifted into the air from the sheer power
>OP plays in the middle of the action scene inn the final episode
>MC and main antagonist meet each other in casual clothes/without knowing each others' identities
>episode shows that they probably would have been best friends if it weren't for whatever they were enemies over
>their final battle has callbacks to this episode
>Long running series with multiple openings
>Last episode plays the first opening
That shit will never stop hyping me
They better not fuck this up like they did UBW.
>lowly sidekick/minion was the true villain all along
>no matter what the comic relief guy/sidekick gets one of the other best girls that isn't the main one.
This shit makes my dick rock hard
>villain is a complete ass hole piece of shit
>however he cares a lot for his companions, friends or henchmen
>goes fucking insane when people hurt or kill them
gets me rock hard
>Everything goes Black and White
ratman kind of, jackies best henchmen
Wammu never deserved his fate.
I wish he was alive again, so he could be redeemed and treated as some sort of Piccolo, or much-better Vegeta. He could've been an amazing trainer who would've studied every martial art, mastered hamon, or even discovered the Stands much earlier than Dio, educating the JoJo bloodline if they proved worthy enough to train.
>Long time respected nemesis/enemy running out of magic and begin to fist fight => the MC voluntarily drop his remaining magic out of respect and proceed with fist fight.
a variation that i also like.
>MC uses a deceased mentor's techniques
>joke character gets serious
>he's actually really fucking strong
>MC is a jerk.
>FeMC is fiery.
>They're tsundere for each other.
Although this would've been amazing, his weakness to sunlight would probably have put a stick in his ability to be any sort of traveling partner, Araki could've probably asspulled something though
>Villain gets the MERCY treatment
>Doesn't immediately become an ally for any reason
>one of the mcs meet cute girl
>do fun things all day
>promise to meet up again
>mc fights enemies and kills them
>mc waits for girl all day at the meeting place but she never shoes up
>turns out the cute girl was one of the enemies he killed and he never knew
>moves on with his life
>series moves on as if she never existed
>Delinquent has a heart of gold
>MC and main villain have to unite against a greater foe
2 assholes who become best bros.
Flamboyant evil villains are a close second.
Gundam X's openings changed alongside the new Gundam debuts.
Gintama's openings in the last season sometimes had small variations depending on the episode or arc (It had happened before too, but I think the last season was the one with the most variations, although often they were very small, like a single shot).
>2 assholes who become best bros.
god damn right
This trope when done right can be pretty fucking awesome, like when Gon finally meets up with Pitou again. Hunter X Hunter even reversed the "side-characters buying time for the main hero to arrive" by having Gon be the one, stewing in his anger, waiting to wreck Pitou, who's trying to save an innocent life.
>badguy has same powers as you
>you reach your full potential only in the final battle
>Good guys are getting their shit absolutely wrecked by the villain and his crew
>Villain's about to kill someone and the protag makes his triumphant return and effortlessly and wordless beats a bunch of the henchmen
