    I don't know if this question has been asked yet or not (probably has)
    but anyways, what are your favorite cliché trope? It can be anything from romance, to action, fantasy, or whatever cliché tropes that are currently trending.

    My favorite trope is definitely enemy to lovers, but like where both main characters truly hate each other to the core and want to kill each other :blobpopcorn: also master-disciple relationships *COUGH* *COUGH*

    also I find myself enjoying generic trope-ish action manhwa sometimes, dunno why

    lol I'm also a sucker for enemy to lovers and master-disciple relationships especially enemy to lovers, it just hits different when its two people who despise each other get to know each other and actually discover that the other person might not be so bad.

    my fav trope is angst and misunderstandings to happy ending (not sure if this counts as a trope)

    Obviously the aphrodisiac route, needing some Yin-Yang cultivation. :blobpeek:

    The typical misunderstandings trope. I love when the protagonist causes funny or sad misunderstandings that causes the people around them to slowly change on how they view or act towards the protagonist . But only if this trope is done right!

    I really like the troupe where some sort of magic contract or accident ends up binding the main couple together. Like the protagonist is some ordinary guy, but ends up binding the demon lord to himself accidently. There is also the setting where the protagonist encounters otherworldly person, and ends up forced to be there helper for some reason. I like it because they basically start out forced to work together, and have no feelings for each other, often being hostile. Instead their relationship develops as they develop their abilities throughout the story.

    I like when everyone revolves around the protagonist, like in Black Haze or My Senior Brother has a Pit

    I don't really like the misunderstanding trope, but I totally agree it's great when done right

    I'm a sucker for the trope where a character is underestimated but is actually rlly strong, though some characters with this trope tend to act edgy, so it rlly depends on their personality too

    Ohh!! I really like that trope too, it’s so nice to see two broken individuals fall in love and heal each other (´°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥ω°̥̥̥̥̥̥̥̥`)

    In that case you should have lots of promordial Yin, now the issue with you having a high content of Yang means you're either a cream-filled pastry or a G.I.R.L. (guy in real life).

    Hmmm, I’m definitely not a G.I.R.L, so I assume I’m a cream-filled pastry :sweating_profusely:
