Even if a character fits into one of the cliches listed above, if you can make a video proving that despite the cliche, she's a strong (well-rounded, engaging) character then you're free to use her.
Example: code-chrono's using Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket. While she certainly falls into the first stereotypical category, she also has hidden depths to her character which come out from time to time. She's not a flat, single-dimensional stereotype, so while she does fit into a cliche, I would still consider her a strong character. (Although I will admit that I believed her to be pretty flat for awhile in that series - she was just TOO good, you know? But then you get those little gems like when she shoves Akito.)
