I find this is one of the few anime tropes that works in real life as well. Also I like the animes where the MC improves for the sake of those he cares about (Not power of friendship bullshit, like he sees how weak he is compared to them and works harder because of it)

The term trope derives from the Greek τρόπος (tropos), "turn, direction, way", derived from the verb τρέπειν (trepein), "to turn, to direct, to alter, to change".

It's the closest I can think of. I'm not sure this counts, but I fucking love that episode

Probably been said a few times in varying ways, but I want the MC to actually have to sacrifice or make hard decisions to uphold his ideals.
No more of this 'saving everyone all the time' stuff, especially when it just ends up looking like a cop out.
>>100676154
These segments need consequences or at least not 'power of friendship' calming them down before anything gets done.
>>100676362
This is great when they go on to succeed, though I hate the cliche of nameless grunts doing the whole "they're just a kid/civilian/[dangerous lab experiment we should probably take seriously]", gets too edgy. Maybe I just like when the MC isn't a carbon copy of innocent perfect morality..

>characters turning evil because of the heroes
I meant, because of an action by the "heroes" or other characters considered on the "good" side of the character alignment, be them mistakes of intentional, a previously "good" character's life is changed so that they turn "evil" (be it their life was ruined or their loved ones died or just that they changed their mind about joining the heroes).
The "victim" who turns "evil" doesn't have to be a protagonist or even a main character, anyone will do at this point.

except code geass ended with the entire empire being crushed because their leader decided to become the biggest bad and then sacrifice himself, thus giving the illusion that "evil has been destroyed".

That doesn't go against what I quoted, it's just omitting a few details.
