i just finished watching A show on Netflix a couple of days back, I liked it at first, it had everything.good protagonist, atmosphere, cinematograph,etc. it was all good until they replaced, a interesting/complex antagonist, with a campy "I'm your evil long lost brother I want to kill you because daddy didn't love me". Character that I've seen in comics/movies/book for fucking! Years!!. It totally runied the show for me. after I calmed down from my rage, I started reflecting on some clichés/tropes that really get my blood boiling,here's a small list. 1- main protagonists is somehow related to the antagonist. 2-main protagonist/antagonist do the things they do because of some contrived tragedy/trama from their childhood. 3-main character is a complete Saint without any flaws, or vices. 4- love interest's that have the personality/ depth, of a shit coated puddle, and have no chemistry with the main protagonist or vice versa. 5-love triangles/romances that pander to preteen girls. 6- black, and white morality pov with no room for any shades of grey. That's mostly my list of hated tropes in fiction. I would love to hear some of y'alls. Tl;dr what's your most hated trope in fiction.
