* The ''Manga/PopTeamEpic'' anime's pilot achieved the rare and dubious honor of getting this type of score from almost every ANN reviewer. Nick Creamer gave it a "Two middle fingers right the heck up there." Lynzee Loveridge gave it a "I think my brain is bleeding." James Beckett gave it a ''negative'' 5 out of 5, and said attempting to score it properly would be "an exercise in futility." Theron Martin gave it a "WTF." Jacob Chapman, true to form, rated it "╭∩╮('・ω・´)╭∩╮". Its only legitimate score was a 1.5/5 from Rebecca Silverman.

* DanceDanceRevolution's foot rating scales initially (in 1998) went from a low of 1 to a maximum of 8, quickly amended with a 9-footer in ''2nd Mix'' six months later, and then a 10-footer in ''[=MAX2=]'' in 2002. Here, the rating scale stood still for quite some time, with a few new songs in every release getting harder and harder despite still being rated as 10-foot songs (compare ''MAX 300'', the first 10, to later 10s like the ''Fascination'' and ''Pluto'' series). Eventually in 2008, Konami relented and introduced a new ratings scale in ''Dance Dance Revolution X'', with all previous ratings inflated by about 50% and a new top-end of 20-foot for future expansion.

* On ''AtopTheFourthWall,'' Linkara lists the "Top 15 Worst Comics I've Ever Reviewed." However, before he begins, he notes that ''ComicBook/HolyTerror,'' of course, is the worst comic he's reviewed, so he's taking that off the list just so that the #1 spot will be a surprise. Technically, this makes the list "Top 15 Worst Comics I've Ever Reviewed, Other than ''Holy Terror,''" but [[OverlyLongTitle that wasn't as catchy]].

* ''WebVideo/RosssGameDungeon'' usually gives out a maximum of three awards at the end of every review, usually detailing the most interesting or noteworthy aspects of the game. ''Maabus'' had so many interesting elements, that Ross decided to give it an extra fourth award: [[spoiler: Best Story by a Six-Year-Old]].

* Creator/MarkPrindle gave Music/{{Madonna}}’s ''[[http://markprindle.com/madonnaa.htm#american American Life]]'' a zero out of ten. While he’s known for often being a CausticCritic, this was the first (and still only) album to get a zero, and to ‘commemorate’ this he used a new graphic rather than representing the score with those tiny records as usual.
