In this thread, suggest archetypes for characters seen in mangas that have a new twist that keeps them fresh

I'll start

I could've sworn I've read at least one or two manga with that played completely straight (i.e. not mainly for parody).

I remember reading a theory that Jimmy Neutron was basically the Truman Show, but it was a government operation to give Jimmy a regular life with creative freedom to make inventions, and that all Jimbo's creations that 'disappeared' (due to the show's episodic nature) were actually just taken by the government to study/replicate.

Basically. She'd be probably more smooth than he is and more sophisticated, but she lacks his determination or scheming potential. Hence their relationship is very reciprocal, and they do need each other to get their goals accomplished. Ironically, that indicates they might be a healthy couple, all things considered.

Why do all the things Jimmy and his friends discover just become discarded in the next episode? I'll tell you.
Jimmy's inventions are used in one scenario and rarely are seen again because their being taken and developed by the United States government.
The entire town of Retroville is a large-scale experiment in genetic engineering.

Another one I'd like to see messed with is a chaotic good yandere.

The yandere doesn't attack just random women MC is too close to, rather, she specifically targets women who are known as manipulators, gold diggers, black widows, etc. that MC hasn't encountered yet, but she won't handle the risk of him finding out. She just wants him to be happy so she only takes out the toxic people in his life or reforms them through coercion.

The top comment was literally my thoughts. The alien invasion in the movie seems far-fetched, but I guess it's plausible. Or it's just non-canon.

Will there be a sequel/spinoff where God isekai's the guy and smites the girl for having the big gae?

@bigtiddyoneesan

No because I think the crux of the story would involve their relationship, plus the slow realization that she's bi but only because she comes to love MC.

Hey man, don't underestimate what publishers and editors will green-light for profit. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing the situation MC is faced with when he's given a unique skill by God but is reluctant to use said skill due to his resentment towards God for smiting his qt bi gf.

Honestly, the dime-a-dozen trash escapist fantasy Isekai is still better than some of the comics I've seen.

Marvel has gone downhill, and I speak as a Deadpool fan who liked his Marvel Now run the best

Usagi Drop's timeskip arc wasn't as bad as I thought, I would actually read it again.

We don't have that, but how about a time-travelling tough-guy-exterior delinquent from the 80's (born in 1972), thrown into the 21st century by his friend and living with said friend's adult daughter, resulting in expected romcom hijinks, right here?
