  • Weaksauce Weakness: This is a ridiculously popular trope that is used in multiple forms of media. It occurs when a super hero, or villain, has a less than cool weakness. It is usually played for comedic effect, and much to the embarrassment of the poor character. Some examples include; Empowered from the comic of the same name. She is a very busty heroine with an extremely skintight suit. Unfortunately, it’s very easily ripped apart, and when it does, her powers weaken. It’s great for fan service, but not so much for the heroine herself. Next, we have the Devil Fruit users from One Piece. Anyone who eats one of these fruits is filled with amazing power and crazy skills. The catch? You can’t ever swim again! Lastly, we have the weakness of The Blue Meanies from The Yellow Submarine. These strange and hate filled creatures are weak to anything positive.

He was trained in a special fighting style by the blind master Stick, and can kick villain ass in a variety of creative ways. On top of all of that, he’s also an amazingly talented lawyer. Next, we have Kenshi from the Mortal Kombat series. He has phenomenal skill with the blade, and has some quite impressive telekinetic powers. Did I mention that he’s blind? Lastly, we have Toph from Avatar: The Last Airbender. She was blind since birth, but is one of the strongest, if not the strongest Earthbender in the series.

  • Achilles’ Heel: One of the most common tropes used in media today. It deals with a character having an easily exploitable weakness. They could be one of the strongest characters around, but need this particular trope to not have a series run stale. Some examples include; The obvious, Superman. The Man of Steel is one of the most popular and powerful characters in the DC Universe. He can almost do anything, but has a major weakness that can slow him down. Like most Krytonians, Superman is weak to a glowing green rock, known as Kryptonite. The rock will significantly weaken the hero, and can completely absorb his powers. Next, we have the universal weakness of all Devil Fruit users in One Piece, water. It’s pretty funny that a series that revolves around Pirates has water as a weakness. However, it makes sense, because devil fruit powers are ridiculously strong.

It occurs when a foreign word is translated poorly, which leaves grammatical errors, strange punctuation, or completely wrong meanings. Some examples include; The early King of Fighters games.

Lastly, we have the horrible music video for Allison Gold’s shitty song, Chinese Food. The song’s translation in Hebrew is spelled backwards.
