"THIS IS MY FIGHT"
MC that's good at everything, with all the girls throwing themselves at him and blushing whenever he so much as looks in their direction. Also is an asexual robot with no personality

The list is far too long
Complaining about a trope is pointless. Cliches don't exist. Just because you've seen something a million times doesn't degrade its value as entertainment. There is a reason why such "cliches" are used so often: because they are good. What if the things you see as "new and original" was a trope six million years ago when our ancestors were making anime? Exactly. Stop complaining. There are no such things as tropes or cliches; just things you happen to see often.
"If we don't defeat Evil McBadguy right now, he will destroy the world!"
"The five of us could probably kick his ass if we all ganged up on him."
"But he challenged ME, so I have to fight him alone, everyone else go home and play vidya or whatever, until the world ends because, as even a 5-year-old could tell, Evil McBadguy is a cheating bastard who doesn't fight fairly."
>series with a really cool premise, like people having robot minions, or motherfucking dragons
>MC's robot, dragon, etc.. is a 12 year old girl
>You killed my family brutally
>but I forgive you
>Main villain slaughters millions of innocent people over the series who never get revived
>Its okay I didnt know any of them, you can now be my rival
Ok. Explain Mahou Sensou. Watch a couple of episodes of that cliche-ridden diarrhea, and tell me Cliches don't exist.
Actually, don't watch it. I wouldn't wish that experience on my worst enemy
Dragons are supposed to be giant firebreathing monsters. Besides, there's already a best girl in the series (the one that looks just like a Saber clone)
>There is a reason why such "cliches" are used so often: because they are good
That statement is just wrong. There's no way a misunderstanding in the bathroom, a girl flashing her panties and then slapping a guy or a girl falling from the sky changing the MC's life can be good/funny anymore.
>I have no talent so I'm going to work hard.
>Mc manages to be even with the "talented" people just "by working hard" even though that people works hard too.
If that's not talent then /a/ is not full of shitposting and waifu wars.
>Puny mortal over adorable and awesome dragon loli
Most harems in general need to die. The self-insertion, unrealistic attraction for one person, and the female archetypes just covers harem shows just like a plague. It's honestly one of the few genres I know where fans hate actually hate it when the writers attempt to break the mold.
