* Creator/{{Yuriofwind}} has a segment called Bullshit Creepypasta Storytime, in which he reads bad creepypastas. Odds are, when he's not [[{{MST}} MSTing]] the story, he's doing this. This is most notably what he did before he stopped reading ''VideoGame/SonicExe'', to declare how bad the story was. -->'''Yuri:''' Now I'm going to stop here for a second and say something; I can't read the rest of this. Do you wanna know why? This story is [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] terrible! I mean, Christ, we're only through what I'm gonna call, "The First Arc, The Tails Arc" and I already wanna kill myself!

** Critics of her criticism include Creator/DavidLean, who commented that Kael (who'd panned his recent ''Film/RyansDaughter'') wouldn't be content until he was making black-and-white films in 16 mm. Lean didn't direct a film for 14 years afterwards. Charlotte Rampling was also deeply offended by Kael's comments on her performance in ''Film/TheNightPorter'', which labels her a talentless slut. Rampling was offended enough that seriously considered quitting acting; she spotlighted Kael's review in a documentary made decades later. Kael also nursed feuds with fellow critics, notably Andrew Sarris.

* Besides being viewed as an eccentric composer, HectorBerlioz was infamous for being this trope. His reviews have been said to be unnecessarily abrasive and often outrageous.

* The former WoW podcaster [[Creator/TheCynicalBrit TotalBiscuit (aka TotalHalibut aka the Cynical Brit)]] loved the game back when he did postcasts, and still won't hesitate to rag on every perceived slip up, and outright tells anyone who doesn't like his reviews "there's the door". He thoroughly believes that reviews have to be critical to be effective.

* S.T. Joshi is known largely as biographer and editor of Creator/HPLovecraft, as well as firm believer that, with a [[Creator/WHPugmire few]] [[Creator/ThomasLigotti exceptions]], the horror/weird fiction field has been a steady drop downhill since the Gentleman of Providence. His vitriolic responses to Lovecraft critics such as Daniel Jose Older and Charles Baxter are proudly displayed on his blog.

He did not take the Word Fantasy Convention's retiring of its Lovecraft design for its major award well, mailing back his own and promising to boycott the convention from now on.

* A Lemon64 user called Ali Pouladi became rather famous for being a person that made negative reviews. It should be noted that he also made positive reviews (even if he attracted controversy for the fact that he considered ''Zak [=McKraken=] and The Alien Mindbenders'' to be average) and even managed [[http://www.lemon64.com/?mainurl=http%3A//www.lemon64.com/games/ to interview a few people who worked on Commodore 64 games he liked]], but as you can tell from [[http://www.lemon64.com/?mainurl=http%3A//www.lemon64.com/reviews/view.php%3Fid%3D578 his review index]] the majority of his reviews were negative.

* SFDebris, although what he mainly seems to be caustic towards is poor writing and idiocy. When he reviews something that is actually good, Chuck tends to lapse into impassioned monologues about why the work is so good. Even in otherwise terrible works, he takes time aside to point out things that are done well.

* Many of the reviews on RottenTomatoes for ''[[SeltzerAndFriedberg Epic Movie]]'', ''[[SeltzerAndFriedberg Meet the Spartans]]'', and ''[[SeltzerAndFriedberg Disaster Movie]]'' ended up like this.

* Peter Pilbeam, the resident hotel reviewer of ''Podcast/TheJohnDredgeNothingToDoWithAnythingShow''. Although some of his criticism is rather outlandish, it has to be said… --> Well the first thing I noticed, when I got to the hotel, was the awful stench. This later turned out to be the result of a sandwich that had been left in my pocket for several weeks, but nevertheless it did not bode well.
