I hate ichigo he just doesnt have the personality luffy and naruto have and I also hate natsu from fairy tail. Other than that 9 times out of 10 they always have to give the main characters spiky hair.

Total overkill of the following:

1. Overpowered Villains

2. Spiky Hair *cough DBZ cough*

3. Weak support characters (one character is almost overpowered, while the others are sub-par with their powers)

4. Emo characters (like what Destinyheroknight said)

5. Stupid male characters (seen in most harem/ecchi shows...it was painful to watch the embarrassment to men that was Natsuru Seno in Kampfer [while in male form])

I am fine with emo characters as long as the reason is somewhat justified.Like in Afro Samurai where the main character's parents are killed.
I hate the shonen heros who eat allot,fight for their  friends , are idiots and are overpowered.  
I hate the idea among some internet fans that anything outside of the HST is better then the HST(No,hellsing is not better then One Piece and Naruto ,killing Nazi Vampires is a shitty plot.No,DBZ is not better then Naruto and One Piece cause it is more popular guess what Justin Bieber is popular too.)
I hate slow paced fights *cough*Bleach*cough*Dragon ball z*cough*.
 
@Haofan123
 
As much as I hate Ichigo , I wouldn't say he is the typical shounen hero as he lacks the idiot part and the eating allot part. But he is bland as hell and he is the main character with the worst character development in the HST and Bleach has the worst character development in the HST.

But really it's up to what each person like, you know? I don't like any of the HST because my tastes are different. I'll say that the Black Butler manga is better than One Piece because Black Butler is more to my tastes than One Piece.

Congrats. You've driven me to do a Top 10... :P
 
My Top 10 Most Hated Anime Cliches
10. Female characters with ridiculously large boobs.
9.  Romantic developments between the main couple getting repeatedly interrupted by the arrival of other characters or other situations (Ai Yori Aoshi, Onegai Teacher, Kimagure Orange Road, Maison Ikkoku)
8. Shounen anime's love of creating heroes who are clueless about anything besides battle or protecting others from evil.
7. Characters in an action series bragging about their new power upgrade, secret technique, battle strategy, etc... in the middle of a battle. (any shounen action anime franchise).
6. Overpowered villains. (Naraku from Inuyasha, Aizen from Bleach)
5. Characters in an action series who are battered to the point of defeat yet they keep pressing on in a fight and somehow manage to pull a win out of their rears. (DBZ, Naruto, Bleach)
4. Female characters behaving and/or dressing promiscuously in an anime for no reason other than to arouse the male audience.
3. Shallow villains out to take over/ destroy the world/ universe for no apparent reason (Muska from Laputa, Hamdo from Now and Then Here and There, Father from Full Metal Alchemist, any DBZ baddie)
2. Weak-willed female characters who need the male lead to help give them a confidence boost (Many female characters from Kanon, Air and Clannad)
1. Moeblob characters (Lucky Star a notorious example)

Characters with excessive Transformations and forms. 1 or 2 are OK but 3 4 5 !!! come on now

The female characters who are there just for eye-candy, does get tedious after a while.

The cocky A-hole rival to the main protagonist, it get old to me after seeing it so many times.

Faux Action Girls
 
Explain Your Power / Calling Your Attacks
 
Hollywood Tactics (Not limited to Anime, but really gets on my nerves) 
 
Each and every one of these can be found in my favorite Anime, though. :P
