This thread is for requests on Stereotypes to be added to the Manga Stereotypes page. Thoguh Resonate and I are two great manga enthusiasts, we can not think of every stereotype, so please, help us out.

So far, the stereotypes we have are:

The Main Character Stereotypes

The Anti-Hero

The Sidekick

The Pervert

Character X

The Fallen Hero

Influential Deceased

The Evil Older Sibling

The She-Males

The Bossy Girlfriend

The Mascot

The Magical Girl

The Instant Prodigy

The Fan-Girl

The Heartthrob

The Right-Hand Man

The Emotionless Character

The Moe Character

and The Alter Ego

Ah, the cat girl falls underneath the Moe Stereotype, as they are a common fetish, for some odd reason.

typical catgirls in most manga / anime...

i'm not a big anime / manga fan so i can't really give character names, dates, episodes and everything else...

there's probably tons of these scattered throughout manga / anime, i just don't watch any of it lol

it's not just Catgirl's though...

Manga / Anime use all kinds of Anthropomorphic characters, male and female, hell, it even gets into the video games and sometimes branches out into mythical creatures...

Anthropomorphic characters are typically any blend of human / animal through 1% human to 1% animal...

Has anyone else ever noticed that black people are rarely in manga, and if they are, they always have afro's and talk like a stereotypical black person?
