National/ethnic stereotypes. Sometimes it can be played for laughs, and I usually detest PC, but the stereotypes of countries for characters is just tiresome to me. American - blue eyed blond with big boobs (if female). Don't even get me started on black characters. British - invariably a snooty aristocrat. German - militaristic. Chinese - cheongsam, double bun "ox horn" hairstyle, will speak in stilted Japanese, some sort of "Chinese-style" music will play when they appear. At least Chinese characters wearing the Mao suit seems to have faded from modern anime.
