* ''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.

A broken base is a civil war among fans of a particular franchise. Almost every franchise has at least some internal conflict among its fanbase, but a truly ''broken'' base is characterized by a sustained and exceptionally vicious conflict between two or more large, vocal, and entrenched factions with little or no middle ground to be found between them.

* ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'': 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 isn't being used, mostly because the MCU had yet to feature a heroic Asian person in the films.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.
* ''Series/IronFist2017'': Danny's race is a hot-button topic, as there is a divide among fans over whether Danny should have stayed Caucasian or become Asian-American. For this first half the base , keeping Danny white avoids stereotyping as him being Asian would mean the only Marvel/Netflix Asian lead is, of course, a martial artist. The second half of the base argues that Danny being white is an example of MightyWhitey and essentially amounts to cultural appropriation as Danny essentially takes the culture of a foreign people and makes it his own. They also find the idea of an Asian-American returning to his father's homeland and reluctantly embracing the culture he descended from, exploring the duality of being a second-generation US immigrant, a more interesting story that resonates with many Asian-American viewers. The first half then point out that that's exactly what the white Danny does as he is raised from childhood in a pseudo-Asian culture and then returns to his homeland in adulthood.
