* ''Franchise/StarWars'', good lord, ''Star Wars''. The first broken base happened with the prequel films, with some liking them and others becoming OT purists who wouldn't acknowledge them. And there were always disagreements about various EU projects. But the takeover by Disney and de-canonization of the Expanded Universe have resulted in a BrokenBase that's downright vicious at times. Some fans do try to stay civil and polite, but there's no shortage of troll behavior, flame wars, NoTrueScotsman arguments, personal attacks and slander campaigns between fans of the Disney canon and those who are loyal to the original EU canon.

* ''Film/{{Doctor Strange|2016}}'': The casting of Creator/TildaSwinton as the Ancient One has been divisive. While many are glad to have a powerful character be portrayed by a female actor, especially one as accomplished as Swinton, others are upset that the original Tibetan version wasn't used, mostly because the MCU had yet to feature a heroic Asian person in the films.[[note]]The first performer of Asian descent to get BilledAboveTheTitle for an MCU movie, ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'''s half-Filipino [[Wrestling/{{Batista}} Dave Bautista]], did so for playing an alien, Drax the Destroyer.[[/note]] Co-writer C. Robert Cargill's comments on it being done to prevent the movie from being BannedInChina due to a potential positive portrayal of a Tibetan character (which the studio itself later denied) added more controversy. He also didn't help things by accusing all the people upset over it of being "social justice warriors", though he later backpedaled on it and said everyone absolutely has the right to have issues with it.

* ''Literature/HarryPotter'': The author declaring [[WordOfGay Dumbledore to be gay]] shortly after the release of the final book is something that ''everyone'' in the fanbase has an opinion on, and to this day is a hot topic among the base. The two main camps are those who feel that the character's orientation is fairly well-supported in the text, with the WordOfGod being merely a confirmation of something that a close reading could have already revealed, versus those who feel that it's either a cheap way for the author to drum up conversation about a closed book or to quiet complaints about a lack of gay representation in the series or both.
