* ''DethroningMoment/HonestTrailers''



* Tropers/HappyMan: I like ''WebVideo/HonestTrailers''. And I like ''Disney/WreckitRalph''. So when the former did an honest trailer of the latter, I was pretty happy. For most part, it was pretty good and funny, the {{Take That}}s weren't too mean...until the "Starring" part, in which Sergeant Calhoun is credited as "Gamergate's Worst Nigthmare". Um, what? [[CriticalResearchFailure Does the guy who wrote this trailer has ANY idea of what Gamergate is about?]] Sure, because a strong female character is the worst nigthmare of a group who wanted more ethics in gaming journalism. And the worst part is that Calhoun, being tall, slender, blonde, white, heterosexual, attractive and the most important part of her backstory being losing her fiance the day of her wedding would enrage Anita Sarkesian and other people who oppose Gamergate if Calhoun was actually an actual videogame character.

** SomeNewGuy: To say that [[spoiler:Pyrrha's death]] has split the fanbase would be a massive understatement, and I am firmly on the side that absolutely despises it. The entire second half of season 3 really turned me off due to how dark and hopeless it all was, but this was just the clincher that the RWBY I fell in love with was dead. [[spoiler:Pyrrha]] was an amazing character who had so much potential and was just started to get some much needed backstory and development, but nope! [[spoiler:Killed off in one of the most graphic and needlessly cruel ways I have ever seen.]] and the clincher? [[spoiler:It didn't have to happen. The revelation of Cinder's betrayal and her role in Penny's death would have been more than enough to trigger Ruby's silver eyes, but instead she, and the fans, just had to get that final kick in the gut. In the end, Pyrrha was nothing more than a prop for Ruby and Jaune's development, and that is absolutely sickening]]. And no, the fact that Monty himself planned it from the start does not make it any better. If anything, it makes it [[BrokenPedestal worse]].

* Riley1sCool- I ''love'' [[WebAnimation/RWBY RWBY]]. Oh, I'm sorry, what was that? [[spoiler: [[EnsembleDarkhorse Penny and Roman?]]]] Okay, [[spoiler: Penny's dead?]] That's screwed up. She was adorable, and the show just killed her for no real reason. [[spoiler: Pyrrha's traumatized?]] Okay, that I can deal with. Wait. What was that? What? [[spoiler: Roman got a PetTheDog moment? Oh, how... wait, and then he goes an RoaringRampageOfRevenge due to Neo's DisneyVillainDeath? Aweso-- and then he dies at the end of his epic speech? Well, at least he probably got a DyingMomentOfAwesome? No? EatenAlive by a griffin? A low-level Grimm? Despite just beating the lead? Unrealisti-- and then said griffin is immediately pwn'd by an entirely unarmed Ruby, despite him having just beaten her half to death? She just... regenerates? Well, we NeverFoundTheBody.]] Wait, what's that in the podcast? [[spoiler: He's KilledOffForReal? Even though he only took two hits? And henceforth has a nigh-full aura? Well, I can't respond to that. The show's trying to be DarkerAndEdgier, and missing it. Wait. I can respond. What the FUCK?!]]

* Tropers/Izzy1: To be honest, ''WebVideo/GradeAUnderA'''s video "THE YOUTUBERS COMPLAINING ABOUT DRAMA RANT (Exposing Matthew Santoro)" rubbed me the wrong way, specifically the part where he insulted LetsPlay/Markiplier. Now, before you make assumptions, I don't follow Markiplier or watch his stuff, but the fact that Grade was insulting him based on his appearance (having dyed red hair) and for calling himself "Markimoo" (which I heard is something his fans call him) rather than what he actually had to say was disappointing. And when he addressed this in his followup video saying that nobody is immune to criticism, I had 2 problems with that: 1. He was completely missing the point of why people were mad at him, for the most part, thinking that people were mad because Markiplier dyed his hair out of respect for a dead friend/charity (I heard both stories, don't know which is true) and saying he shouldn't be immune to criticism as a result, especially since Mark apparently caused more drama with his video. While I'm not sure if that's true, I think I can say that a lot of people, myself included, were more miffed about the way you attacked him for petty reasons, rather than that. 2. He makes a huge point about saying that everyone should be open to criticism, yet on [[https://np.reddit.com/r/GradeAUnderA/comments/4ht7fr/transparency_is_key_more_info_in_comments/ Reddit, he tried to delete a thread criticizing him for getting "annoyed" by it. Honestly, I was starting to like this guy's content, but these events turned me off from his videos.

* Tropers/CaptainTedium: The College Humor video that I found extremely bad was "WesternAnimation/DuckTales Opening Gone Horribly Wrong". It basically starts the same way the traditional opening to this classic Disney cartoon goes, but things go downhill when they get to the part where Scrooge [=McDuck=] dives into his Money Bin. He ends up getting brutally injured and dies at the hospital, after which Huey, Dewey, and Louie end up in jail, are ''raped'' by the Beagle Boys, and are left to rot in jail by their uncle Donald, who is implied to commit suicide at the end of the video when he's unable to pay his bills. Having the Duck family torn apart by these tragedies just isn't funny.
