I saw this on another discussion board elsewhere on the internet, and it was fun. It's all about naming the cliches and tropes in fantasy fiction that we should be sick of but love anyway.

 

I'll go first because it would be rude of me not to: stubborn, sassy female protagonists (especially the ones I can ship with the stoic warrior male).

Haven't visited this forum in a while, but I like your idea. I'll have to think about this now :-)
