    Like title said, what's your favorite trope or cliche when you read novels?

    My personal favorite is tied between two tropes.

    1. When the fodder character can't see Mount Tai. Something about this cliche is just so satisfying to read, probably because I know the poor fodder character is going to get curb-stomped. It's also a reminder that the MC became stronger and I was there when he was weaker, so it feels refreshing to read them fodderizing characters that would've easily wiped them.
    2. "You're courting death" - Fodder Young Master. I always laugh at this phrase cause the only person that ever courts death is the villain themselves.

    Hmm.....how to say it....those parts where the MC somehow win against the enemy with new power, but the Author somehow make that cliched into a HYPE moment.....I like it when I can feel the HYPE, but not when I don't.

    Favorite trope - when in a rom-com harem the MC actually chooses a girl
    Least liked trope - When it is left hanging like the MC chooses no-one but the authour ends the story with something along the lines " and they continued their daily comedy life, the end". no writer, you do not leave the audience blueballing here

    When the sick, ugly maidservant or MC's romantic interest is actually having a godly constitution

    But I don't like the separation part because of it

    Fav trope, when MC decides to go Robbery mode on his enemies,
    Slightly fav mode, when the MC goes murderous apeshit over his enemies instead of acting all saint, bonus point if the MC admits he is a monster, and proceed to erase his enemies and all their clans.

    Hated trope, harems with no H (imo card collection mode, even Kamihime has H scenes to reward their players!)
    Slightly less hated trope, ecchi that is so close to fullblown H.

    Dunno if it turned into a cliche already but I like a lot the parts where the MC is mindfucked and turns to the dark side :)

    When MC has multiple personas and reveals his identity.

    Then maybe his sub harems from each persona combine into a massive harem? Haven't yet seen this happen...

    Favorite: Strong Loyal servant holds romantic feelings for Master MC. It’s not like I’m into bdsm
    Wants to be avoided: MC gets cucked and does nothing about it
