Those irritating bad boys. Ugh! I’m sick of the same old bad boy appearing in every story. Why isn’t there any love interest who has an actual goal in life, a passion. Can’t there be good LI’s as well? The mean girl who is always mean. Try to make the mean girl have an actual personality, show her nice side. And stop making every mean girl rich and blonde, it’s upsetting that people stereotype rich people and blonde people into being mean. The mean girls side kicks. One is a sassy black girl and the other is the dumb blonde. Again, the blonde stereotype. I can’t stand the sassy black girl. Not every black girl is sassy for goodness sake! Why does every cliche story stereotype black people into being ruse and sassy, try to make them nice and stop being racist! The brown haired, light-skinned MC with wavy hair, usually with beach waves and the soft natural nose. I don’t know why, but episode has a strange obsession with making the MC’s look the exact same. Pregnancy stories. I hate this stuff, it’s as if you’re promoting teen pregnancy. Gang Leaders, these people are dangerous, and episode teaching others that falling in love with an abusive psychopath is awesome is extremely inappropriate and unacceptable. No diversity. If a story has no diversity, there is no fun in reading it. There needs to be people with different race, sexuality, disabilities, religions, beliefs and different personalities. Bland and Boring MC’s. The MC is usually so boring that I can’t be bothered reading about them. Give them some actual personality traits and goals, other than falling in love with ugly bad boys who smoke.

Cliche Episode Characters

Here are a few cliche Episode characters:

Cliche main character


The cliche main character is likely the weakest character in the story. The mean girl walks all over her and she constantly falls in love with bad boys, golden boys, kidnappers, and more. She often marries the bad boy. She cries often and is saved from all her problems by the love interests, particularly by the bad boy or the golden boy, though this process takes the whole story to finish. She is sometimes haunted by an ex-boyfriend who has little purpose other than to scare the main character. She is saved by a love interest. She has a boy-crazy best friend who pushes her to go to parties and takes her shopping to get nothing other than dresses. At the beginning of the story, an irrelevant character throws a big party at their house. The best friend pressures the main character to go and she gets drunk and faints, wakes up the next day with a headache, goes home to change, then goes to school. She meets the main love interest by bumping into him. She falls, but he does not. She is innocent, with no mistakes ever made, unless the mean girl used to be her best friend.
Traits: Weak, submissive, flirty, shy, simple and shallow
Common outfit: Tank tops, shorts and heels

Cliche bad boy


The cliche bad boy is mean and rude, until he gets his heart warmed by the cliche main character. This process usually takes around ten chapters, though it takes about three chapters for him to stop being mean to the main character and they enter a romantic relationship. He smokes. He sleeps with many girls until he falls in love with the main character. After fighting with the main character, he thinks there is something different about her. This phenomena has been observed in thousands of Episode stories and has not yet been explained. He is sometimes in a gang. If so, he tells the main character to stay away from him. He and the main character break up, but a couple of chapters later, he apologizes and they get back together. This may happen a few times in the story, until the main character finds out that he is in a gang. By the end of the story, the cliche bad boy stops smoking, stops cheating on the main character, turns nice, and leaves his gang. He never faints, cries or gets drunk. He also fights another one of the main character’s love interests over the main character.
Traits: Flirty, rude, tough, simple and shallow
Common outfit: Leather jacket, ripped jeans, black shirt and black boots

Cliche mean girl


The cliche mean girl bullies the main character for no reason. She has two minions on either side of her who support her as she insults people. She is rich and popular, and, very strangely, accepted by most in the school. She dates either the golden boy or the bad boy at the beginning of the story, until he breaks up with her for the main character, causing her to get angry and hate the main character even more. For four or five chapters, the mean girl is simply an annoyance to the main character and her love interests, spurting out random insults, as she is not needed. At this time, the main character is experiencing some other empty drama, which is often that her father is dating someone, who the main character will automatically hate for a while in order to create dry, repetitive drama. After this, the mean girl is back in action and tries to embarrass the main character or make her jealous. Sometimes the mean girl used to be the main character’s best friend. If so, she will try to expose the main character’s deepest secret, which she does not have when she is with the normal best friend. Sometimes the mean girl turns psycho and tries to kill the main character. After several chapters, the main character’s love interests defeat her, and she fades away.
Traits: Mean, inappropriate, simple and shallow
Common outfit: Tank tops, skirts and heels

Bro I know, I’m a nerd. I fangirl over the emo trinity, 80/90/2000’s music, Marvel and HP 24/7.
But I dress like a “girly girl”.
I wear bright colours, patterns, blouses, off the shoulder tops, crop tops in some cases, dresses, strappy sandals, heeled shoes, I love styling my hair, earrings 24/7, always wear jewelry on my wrists, I love necklaces,


#743

If only there were more main characters that need glasses, not the cliche nerd mc who wears glasses she doesn’t even need and can see just fine when she “transforms” into the stupid popular makeover girl, when she doesn’t have glasses.


#744

This is possibly the best post ever on any forum.


#745

That was awesome. Really. However, when I think of a main character with the traits you mentioned, I imagine her having fawn hair and wear less provocative clothes:)


#746

In almost all the bad boy stories I’ve read, the main character wears stuff like that. Which is really annoying to me.


#747

I don’t know how they weren’t violating the dress code.


#748

Strange to me, how is she all shy and innocent then🤔


#749

It makes no sense, but bad boy stories rarely make much sense anyway. I just remember struggling to choose an outfit for the main character that wasn’t super showy.


#750

I absolutely hate these types of stories

  • Where the girl is CANNOT stand up for herself
  • When the mean girl is the ex-best friend
  • When the mean girl LITERALLY HAS A BOYFRIEND BUT STILL WANTS THE MC’S MAN
  • The mean girl ALWAYS has blonde beach wave hair and blue eyes and wears the Pink Fashionista Dress 100% of the time
  • When the “bad boy” says ‘I can’t fall for her, I’ll hurt her’ WHY!? JUST WHY?
  • Unplanned pregnancy
  • Tragic past
  • When the MC has some huge secret that only the mean girl knows
  • When they go from nerd to popular
  • AND THIS IS MY MOST HATED TURN OF EVER WHEN THE GUY SAYS “THERE’S SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT HER” LIkE nO AcE YoU’Re JuST HOrnY

And can we talk about the detailed sex scenes? Episode is directed towards KIDS.
