Default Pop Culture/Fandom sterotypes you are sick of

What are some very crappy sterotypes about fanbases and your favorite fictional works on the internet. Let's say you are a fan and you are opposed to how the internet views your favorite works of fiction or your fanbase.


I'll start:


-Every shipper is 1) a Twilitard 3) DILPers or 2) irrational. Not big on shipping myself but there are good fics I still think
-All fanfiction suck
-All ASOIAF fans utterly hate Joffrey--I have talked to some Joffrey fans in person or enjoy him as a character
-Game of Thrones newcomers do not care about the book unless they fear author dying before book finale--not true, I have seen friends turn to the books after the series
-Everyone who likes or defends Star Wars prequels are stupid, uneducated or irrational--I do not think well of the Prequels but I can see where they come from or why prequel apologists exist
-In that regard, the Clone Wars(new one) is a crappy kids show--when it gets significantly better after Season 1, just had a crappy movie premire just look at the tvtropes page
-in Glee Klaine and Faberry shippers mean well for gay rights, when supporting these pairings actually do more harm than good to LGBT people
-All Bioware and Blizzard fans hate their own parent company
-All gaming critics are bought by corporations
-Scrappy-Doo is THE awful character in fiction--he wasn't, people just outgrew him and there are worse
-All Power Rangers is for 5-year olds, there are good Power Rangers shows that aren't
-Power Rangers ended after MMPR
-Gundam IS Gundam Wing
-Robotech fans don't get Macross/Macross fans hate Robotech
-Subs are naturally superior than dubs or the other way around
-All "Complete Monster" characters in fiction are hated--this has been defied a lot of times by the fans
-All "Magnificent Bastard" characters are supposed to be loved
-Complete Monster cannot be a Magnificent Bastard--again defied a lot of times
-A Magnificent Bastard cannot lose his status as one--it can happen, they can lose fan appeal, degenerate to Smug Snake or lost their prestige
-Villain Redemption/Heel Face Turn is overrused--it really isn't
-Every gamer thinks either 1)Bowser 2)GlaDOs 3) Sephiroth 4)Ganondorf and 5) Arthas are the best villains of all time when there are people who dissent with picking either of these four
-Aeris/Aerith death is the saddest death of all time, when in fact Mother 3 is worse
-All Dynasty Warriors game only need 1 button to win. I do not like them but there is glaring hypocrisy between Dynasty Warriors vs Call of Duty in reviews
-All Blizzard fans care for is the gameplay
-F2P MMOs are automatically failures--in truth only one that is is TORTANIC
-Because everyone is "evil" in 40K, it is assumed that all the players hate or are scared or depressed of the setting--not true, everyone is also badass and there are again people who think the fluff is "metal" or "awesome" because it is very over the top
-A villain's freudian excuse is unsympathetic or unpitable because a hero has a simular backstory and has not turned evil in contrast.

So what are your least favorite fandom sterotypes.

So instead of seeing this as a continuation of an era of the 20th century that gave us so much debt and destruction and undermined our liberties and conditions today that are so dangerous, let us think that we are now moving into a new era, a new era where we are going to concentrate on liberty and freedom and property rights and peace. I believe that is the cause that we should lead and I thank you very much for being part of it.~Ron Paul

-The 151 original pokemon are the only cool/legit ones, the rest of them suck and are unoriginal.
-Blizzard is Activision's puppet.
-Adaptions suck (movies and the like), because they alter the original script. (just get over it)

-People that use "fanboys" as an insult/criticism. The word has become so overused it's a fucking joke.

That's not a stereotype. It's the absolute truth.

It doesn't mean Bobby Kotick sits there using Mike Morhaime as a fluffer, or any similar insult I've seen thrown at Blizzard. That's just talking retarded. But don't confuse that with the reality.

People who say people only play Elves because they are pretty and gay

The death of good old fashioned god games (Think Black and white, Dungeon keeper, Settlers)

The General use of unacceptable swearing and 'isms and phobias' used while playing games.

The Girls can't play games perception.

That's just 12 year old teenagers (or "Cunts" as I like to call them) who can't think of anything more witty an insult than "you're gay hahahahhaha!!!!!111one". It's just sad really.

"Casual" used as an insult.

Seriously, do you really wanna take pride in spending shit load of time on a video game? I mean I spend days logged in, but trying to feel superior to others, is just... meh

I can sort of understand when there is skill involved. When going out with friends we used to go to this gaming center and spend hour playing Counter Strike divided into teams. But usually we went somewhere else after.

No its not. I bet even you like a few of them after the original 150 .

I hate how people think there is something wrong with you for enjoying the Blizzard franchises stories from WoW onwards.

That the British are always the villains in major American action movies..

Metal is just a bunch of noise and screaming.
Rap is for talent-less people that can't play instruments.
All pop music is meaningless garbage.
Nerds and geeks are the same.

I can't understand why anyone would get worked up as to whether they're a nerd or a geek.
