A world of cliches

Written in 2023

When you search around modern internet and social media outlets, you can easily stumble across pages and accounts that make fun of some stereotypical things found in (Japanes) role playing games.

This set of reports wants to take a deeper look into that. How are cliches found in games categorized (or categorizable), how do they appear, and what are their cultural backgrounds, if applicable.

We tried to find several overarching topics that certain cliches could be put in, and we try to go deeper into the respective topics on the pages linked here. You can expect this report to grow over time with new categories added.

Please feel free to send any feedback over at the contact page!

These reports contain spoilers! for Final Fantasy XIV (Shadowbringers), Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Lunar: The Silver Star* and Golden Sun.
