Default Annoying Cliches?

What are some repeating themes (either in story, or gameplay, etc.) you've come across in gaming that annoy you?

Tattoos. A tattoo is always a curse, has magic powers, or is a symbol of a tragic back story. No character ever has a tattoo for the sake of it.

The characters live in a world where everyone has access to magic and can pull off special skills at any time, yet the only people who ever abuses them are the main characters and human bosses. No regular enemy uses them, even if they are a trained soldier. In this sense, even a character who has barely fought for a few days is somehow stronger than a trained soldier. The biggest offenders of this one are Tales of the Abyss, Graces, and Xillia.

The amnesiac is something that pops up a little too often in video games.

It's an okay trope but it's just so overdone..

I can only tolerate this in a few games.
