Brian being a talking dog was always a weird holdover from Steve and Larry. In that pilot, nobody could understand the dog except a really weird old man. In Family Guy they would treat Brian like a human most of the time, then randomly have plots that would make him more like a dog. Nobody ever commented on him talking, either, and no other animals were shown to talk. (I'm talking about the original run)

>/co/ tropes you hate
episodic cartoons(especially animated sitcoms) having big status quo events happening in an episode(like the getting rich plots >>121093130 brings up) when it's obvious to everyone that 99% of the time they're just going to be lazily undone by the end of the episode(and on the occasions they aren't will just get ignored or undone by a future episode), if you're not going to have that kind of thing stick don't bother with it at all cause otherwise it's just a waste of the audience's time

>>121093454
what I would give for an adult animated sitcom that had perfect continuity*, even shows like King of The Hill that had pretty good continuity by their genre's standards still had lots of goofs and dropped plots

agreed, though I wouldn't be against Superman expies that are flawed people but still generally good(like say one who had problems keeping his dick in his pants and now has a couple dozen super powered kids running around, but he's trying to be a good dad to them now that he knows about them)

this one is the worst, though there was at least one time where them doing that made sense due to production reasons;

>Teen Titans Puppet King episode

>however there was one hitch in that plan
>Walch and Strong were TOO good at imitating each other to the point that it was indistinguishable from the regular voices

Yeah but sometimes the mom is a retard who refuses to ever work and the dad is still an insane ass hole. And the mom blames you for never working and being poor all the time.

I'd rather kill myself honestly. /v/ is even worse /pol/scum than /co/. /co/ can at least read. /v/ is just casualfags, Russians, and people who never stepped outside but now judge the society.

>fun character dies because "this isn't the comic you're used to, we're edgy now!"
>because the healer trope got old, the strong female character is a constantly losing close combat fighter now, as an excuse to draw her in sexy poses and make her use the leg scissor attack.
>kids don't act like kids.

I don't like either. To me, South Park was the strongest when it overreacts to trivial social issues, showing the ridiculousness of it all. It's the weakest when it shoehorns in distracting movie parodies in completely unrelated plots. Like that Bane parody.

I can't stand South Park anymore knowing that the jokes which were meant to be offending are the same shit 12 year old internet edgelords would write. South Park now managed to be dated no matter how fast episodes are released, because the humor itself is dated. It's like watching the creator's constant whining about shit, like old people. Those hypocrites whine about shit they probably use everyday.

The thing is with a lot of normal people is that superman has to be all perfect all the time and if he’s not all perfect all the time you may as well not call him superman now that’s not the case the character has gone through plenty of stories where he has endured conflict he can’t solve just by punching it out but that’s not what the general people want from the character.

Basically if you have a story where is superman kills Lex Luther and it’s actually super man people will be pissed but if you scrape the superman logo off and call him . . . indestructor. Nobody’s going to get as pissed as they would if it was actually Superman

That's the point of proving them wrong. You don't solve shit by not listening to them. All you do is not slightly inconvenience yourself. There could be an actual problem, and you're just saying "That sounds to ridiculous to exist, I'm going to ignore you."
If they are wrong, you proved that they can trust you, and you can tell them that they are wrong.
But if you don't, you've not only proven that you don't trust them, but that you don't care about what they say, and that proves they can't trust you.

It's because it's the writer's power fantasy where it will be the closest thing that they can get to get back at those who have done them wrong.

Thing is people assume cat behavior is equal to dog behavior, when in reality a lot of the body language is the complete opposite from one another.

There's also a lot of historical bullshit from like the Middle Ages against cats which for whatever reason still exists to this day. It has settled deeply in the media we consume and it's only up until very recently, historically, that we've decided that no, cats are not actually spawns of devil witch wahmen familiars.

All of these are in Ben 10. A few tropes of my one:
>MC unlocks so many powers that writers don't know how to creatively use them all and only stick to the most popular powers.
>MC is punished for doing something good and it's portrayed as comic relief
>Competent character is nerfed/falls into an easy trap to make other characters useful
>Writers make characters faint for easy timeskips and commercial breaks (In the middle of a war arc the writers had Ben faint multiple times)
>Goes through a responsibility episode but forgets the lesson right after
Honestly I have no idea what this trope even is but there were several times in Ben 10 where the characters & writers were saying that Ben relied too much on his Omnitrix and he shouldn't use it. Fucking excuse me? He's a normal fucking human without any magical bullshit that Gwen has, how in the ever-loving fuck is he going to fight aliens without the Omnitrix?? These aliens have fucking SUPERPOWERS, they can control the very elements, build technology that far surpasses any weapon on Earth, destroy buildings with a single punch, how is a teenagef supposed to survive without a high-tech watch that can counter all of that bullshit??? They don't even compromise and say "Ben you should learn how to use a gun when the Omnitrix times out to defend yourself" it's flatout "Superpowers bad go fight superpowered aliens without your superpowers"

This is the number one reason why I hate Korra. The writers had fucking amnesia from ATLA that your actions are supposed to have consequences:
>Aang fucks up
Aang apologizes and works to be better
>Katara fucks up
Even when Katara is so insisted that she's in the right she would eventually realize she's wrong.
>Sokka fucks up
Sokka get's beat down and eats dirt to realize his mistakes
>Toph fucks up
Her pride will be destroyed and fixed after fixing her mistakes
>Zuko fucks up
Zuko has a crisis and constantly battles with making up for his mistake
>Korra fucks up
The writers, story, and characters all bend backward to make Korra in the right despite how much damage she causes or how obnoxious she behaves:
Korra: I'm gay and dating Asami
Tonraq: Oh that's great Korra but you should be careful since not everyone will accept your relationship
Korra: DOES THAT MEAN YOUR REJECTING MY LOVE FOR ASAMI???
Tonraq: Wtf no-
Korra: FUCK YOU DAD
Tonraq is then later forced to apologize for being born with a penis.

Fuck OFF with this shit. No, the treasure wasn't the journey. The treasure was the boxes and boxes of gold and jewels that you left behind. Don't give me the catharsis of them getting the fucking treasure and then just have them fucking lose it all.

Holy butthurt Batman
Conveniently ignoring how a giant turtle came out of fucking nowhere to literally hand Aang a bullshit solution so he doesn’t have to challenge his convictions while insisting Korra skates by is gay enough but you fit almost as much exaggeration into the comic argument as dicks in your mouth. Korra herself admits she was over reacting to Tonraq’s concerns

More an /a/ thing, but I hate combat-focused stories/cartoons/anime/comics where the writers constantly one-up the powers/abilities/etc. and things keep falling into irrelevance.

Like:
>MC trains
>villain shows up
>they fight, MC loses badly
>MC gains Power/Upgrade 1
>beats the villain
>filler episode
>new villain shows up
>they fight, MC loses badly
>MC gains Upgrade/Power 2
>rematch. MC wins, but villain accesses a super mode, or pulls out some special weapon or something
>MC loses and either gains Power 3, or the supporting cast all get Power 1or 2
>everyone fights together, wins
>filler episode
>new villain arrives
Repeat over and over until the show's eventually canceled. Bonus points if it's a show where the second or third villain's plan involves something massively overpowered for the setting, like throwing the moon out of orbit and AT the MCs, or plans to make the sun go supernova, and the writers have to constantly one-up the villain powers by having them destroy universes with a wink, or have them delete a dimension or two.

your fake criticism of Korra doesn't happen in the show. Nobody cares about the comics for either series

>>121127918
Hard to enjoy a show for all its strengths and positive aspects when there's barely any and they're all overshadowed/directly contradicted by its weaknesses and many negative aspects.
>>
>>121123681
>The writers, story, and characters all bend backward to make Korra in the right despite how much damage she causes
While this is true, your example is retarded and never happens. A better example would be the spirit world bullshit, where Korra is shown direct evidence of spirits being colossal dickbags to ancient humanity, but still believes leaving the portals open is a brilliant idea.

>>>Can time travel with barely any cost
>>>Can time travel without losing her human self
>>>Can set up all the magic circles and prep for the spell in a few minutes
This is exactly why you have to limit the powers of your main characters. That episode broke all of the fucking stakes and tension in the series. Even worse, Gwen never tries to use the time travel spell to prevent innocent deaths because she's a fucking cunt and the retarded writers insisted that everything must stay the same otherwise the timeline would be screwed without any logical reason.

On that note that's another thing I hate. Much more common in anime but
>Character has a limited power or works hard to attain their abilities
>Later the character is retroactively shown to either be an alien or the chosen one or some shit and THAT'S why they were so powerful
>Basically watering all of their hard work down to having a higher base potential than all of their peers.
Like sure they still worked hard but it's just a friendly way the series reminds you not all men are created equal and it just makes the part where you thought they were more or less normal feel like a lie. Like have them start out shown to be special or have them gain everything because they worked hard and not because they're the chosen one.

>>121128364
the omnitrix has an IA that gives ben the alien he needs most of the time, so the last one is 50/50, the other ones i understand, ben is broken, like, the most broken of all MC in CN, but his personality prevents him from have the saitama dilemma

>>121128715
Or if the henchmen henchpeople, haha are of men and women, the men get ripped to pieces, blood, gore, etc., while the women either die offscreen, or lose more gracefully, like they get bonked on the head and knocked unconscious, or, like, chloroformed.

I feel like my issue with the movie is it should've either been marketed as a big hana barbera movie or they should've had a couple standalone movies before they started mixing these guys up. Cuz the movie was so convoluted and annoying that calling it a Scooby Doo movie almost feels like an outright lie.

This is the biggest reason (among others) that I hated the reveal about Terry in Batman Beyond.

>Terry is some random punk teen
>disobeys his father and goes out despite being grounded
>stumbles upon Bruce Wayne and the Batcave by accident
>his father dies while he is away, filling him with guilt
>steals the Batsuit to find his father's killer
>Bruce is against it at first, but ultimately despite to bring him on board in secret as the new Batman
>this becomes a big turning point for Terry
>he shapes up and starts doing better
>As Terry puts it, he wants to prove to himself that he's a worthwhile human being
>it's ultimately both a great story of redemption and how anyone can become a hero

I just feel like this is caused by projection from nerds who write tv shows and shit, but from my personal irl observations, it seems like pretty girls are actually nicer and more friendly, while "nerdy" girls are usually kinda bitchy and sleep around a lot.
The only kind of exception I can think of is Scooby Doo, where Velma is pretty much always portrayed a lot more romantically aggressive than Daphne.

in real life goths are always the less attractive girl and only become goths to hide the fat with all the black cloth.
also goth make up is always UGLY in real life, its just cringe, is like those yugioh anime hair, looks cool in cartoon, but in real life you have a ''kill yourself'' look.
