These anime show one or more instances of animal abuse: animals might be denied their basic physical needs, killed without need, or tortured for pleasure.

An Arranged Marriage is a type of marital union where a third party selects the bride and the groom, rather than the two future newlyweds selecting each other for love or other reasons. Characters in these anime face, or are in, an arranged marriage.

In these anime, characters summon creatures or constructs from cards to battle the forces of their opponent. Common themes include card collecting, training, and participating in matches and tournaments.

Characters in these anime have gained a way to cheat the system through fantastical means, whether the cheat breaks the rules of a game world, the real world, or an isekai fantasy world. Examples include: a game-based levelling system that appears to only them in the real world; finding or being given a game-breaking item; or acquiring an ability to level up faster than usual, or to instantly access new skills. Special, overpowered abilities aren’t considered cheats if they are game-sanctioned - for those anime, see Overpowered Main Characters.

These anime use lowbrow humor to make you laugh, most commonly by sex jokes, toilet humor, bodily functions or crass racial stereotypes. If these anime ask you to pull their finger you should politely decline.

Dark fantasy is a subgenre of Fantasy that incorporates grittier and more mature themes. These anime often contain elements of Horror, Graphic Sex, or Explicit Violence.

Constant panty shots, bouncing breasts and dubious camera angles are hallmarks of an Ecchi title. These titles are usually sexualized and designed to titillate, depicting perverted themes and focusing heavily on the female body. Nosebleeds, suspicious hand positions, faceplanting into bosoms, expressive and exaggerated body parts and other tropes characterize this genre. Ecchi is all about fanservice, while Borderline H and Smut titles focus more on sexual content.

Characters in these anime suffer Emotional Abuse at the hands of others, whether they're Bullied or cruelly teased by a classmate, are the victim of gaslighting, are abused by a relative, or anything in between.

These anime depict an explicit level of sexual content, indicated by one or more of the following: detailed, graphic sequences; a high frequency of sexual content, even if content isn't explicit; prevalent nudity; Fetish-based, graphic sequences; or simulated sexual acts.

These anime contain graphic acts of physical conflict, such as weapon fights that result in visible mutilation or realistically-depicted dismemberment, gruesome deaths, or people exploding into viscera.

A harem includes three or more characters who potentially show romantic interest in a male protagonist. The sex, gender, or orientation of the harem members is irrelevant as long as they exclusively, or at least primarily, are vying for the affections of the same individual - who may or may not reciprocate towards one, several, or none of these romantic rivals.

Incest is defined as romantic or sexual relations between people classified as being too closely related to marry each other. On Anime-Planet, we apply this tag when: 1) the characters are related by blood, or 2) the characters are related through adoption or marriage and have a long history together. If characters have just met through marriage and develop a romantic relationship, even if the taboo aspect is discussed, we do not apply this tag.

In these anime, infidelity is an important aspect of the story. Characters may be dealing with an unfaithful partner, or having an affair with someone else. Their actions may result in a Divorce or unplanned Pregnancy.

A love triangle is a set of interconnected romantic relationships between three people. These anime focus on the trials and tribulations of characters who may at first be in love, uninterested, or completely oblivious, as they untangle their feelings, make their choices, and try to win the heart of their beloved. More complex sets of relationships involving more than three people, sometimes called love polygons, may also be included.

These anime have overpowered protagonists, or overpowered main antagonists. Overpowered anime characters easily rise above the conflicts of their story. When competition is involved, they are typically undefeatable, using their intelligence, fighting prowess or pure raw power to win with ease, always staying ten steps ahead. They might be overpowered because of Cheats.

Characters in these anime suffer Physical Abuse at the hands of others, whether they’re Bullied and beat up by a classmate, struck by a relative, sexually abused, or something worse.

Characters in these anime must deal with a planned or unexpected pregnancy. Or, the anime showcases pregnancy themes.

These anime focus on a prophecy. Characters may possess the gift of prophecy, are trying to fulfill a prophecy, or are attempting to stop one from coming true. Some may rebel against getting involved, while others may be affected by a prophecy whether they like it or not. Common prophecies include the coming of a destined hero, the rise or fall of a great evil, or the foretelling of an event that will have far-reaching consequences.

A reverse harem includes three or more characters who potentially show romantic interest in a female protagonist. The sex, gender, or orientation of the harem members is irrelevant as long as they exclusively, or at least primarily, are vying for the affections of the same individual - who may or may not reciprocate towards one, several, or none of these romantic rivals.

These anime showcase the joys and hardships of falling in love, whether a schoolgirl has an unrequited crush on her senpai, a Love Triangle occurs within a group of friends, or rivals become lovers through competition or their intense passion for each other.

These anime have a mild amount of sexual content, such as light Nudity or implied/off-camera sex acts.
