* FanworkBan: Goethe disapproved of Friedrich Nicolai's alternate ending such that he wrote a very on-the-nose poem titled "Nicolai auf Werthers Grabe" ("Nicolai on Werther's grave") wherein a nameless fellow that is obviously supposed to be Nicolai [[DesecratingTheDead literally shits on Werther's grave]].



* WriteWhatYouKnow: Charlotte was inspired by a woman named Charlotte Buff that Goethe was in love with in his youth who he lost out to another man.

* CreatorBacklash: [[invoked]] Goethe's ''Theatre/{{Faust}}'' is in part an attack on philosophical trends associated with the ''Werther'' fandom.
* CreatorBreakdown: Goethe's work is LooselyBasedOnATrueStory.



** But no, seriously, people ''killed themselves'' in imitation/emulation of Werther.



* MisaimedFandom: {{Invoked}}. Many 18th-century readers admired Werther. An alarming number admired him so much that they committed suicide too.
