Any fighter with a sword. I mean, come on. Everyone uses a sword. EVERYONE. The weapon has pretty much become a cliche, especially in video game RPGs, both eastern and western.

Hippie Druid
Ridiculously dumb Barbarian

The steals-from-everyone-including-his-party rogue
The paladin who thinks detecting as Evil is reason enough to commit homicide in a crowded tavern

I could go on with the paladin thing.
