* Venomya from the second season of ''WesternAnimation/WorldOfWinx'' is a nasty sort who seeks to sabotage the Winx' concerts. [[spoiler: She is actually [[GreaterScopeVillain a witch called Baba Yaga.]]]]

* Despite his own opinion (he says he's mixed almost equally on negative and positive reviews) Youtube user Razorfist AKA "The Rageaholic" is an easy fit. In spite of the obvious similarities in fast-paced loquaciousness and [[AccentuateTheNegative Accentuating The Negative]] irrespective of his overall opinion, [[BerserkButton it's a little unwise to compare him to Yahtzee.]]

*In 2007, {{Wrestling/WWE}}'s "revival" of {{Wrestling/ECW}} made Bryan Alvarez of ''Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter'' so angry he actually directly messaged and emailed WWE personnel to complain to them directly. He said the resounding response could be summed up as "Yup, it sucks." That said, WWE did spend the next three years trying to improve the program before giving up.

** As of 2013, you can add HangingJudge to his resume as well: White got canned the New York Film Critics Circle for repeatedly mocking the directors in attendance (once while serving as emcee!).
** He criticized ''{{Film/Gravity}}'' for '''opening on a shot of planet Earth'''. In the first sentence of the review.
** His BiasSteamroller includes:
### He prefers a simple movie with [[{{Anvilicious}} clunky social commentary]] and [[TastesLikeDiabetes Spielberg-ian appeals to emotion]] to a stylish one with a meticulously-crafted plot.
### He [[GrumpyOldMan doesn't believe in films as entertainment]].
### And when he reviews a film, he's also reviewing the [[MediaWatchdog social, critical, and commercial rot]] it (supposedly) represents.

** Kael could be equally over-the-top when she loved a film. She penned a notorious review of ''Film/LastTangoInParis'' which compared it to Stravinksy's ''Theatre/TheRiteOfSpring'' as a cultural game-changer. Though most critics still hold ''Last Tango'' in high regard, it's better remembered for its sexual content among general audiences. Similarly, she wrote a gushing review of the now-obscure ''The Last American Hero'', upholding it as one of the '70s greatest films. Even ''The Killer Elite'', generally considered among Creator/SamPeckinpah's worst movies, inspired a several thousand word essay espousing its greatness. More than one critic accused Kael of hypocrisy for attacking the auteur theory while reflexively promoting directors (Peckinpah, Creator/RobertAltman and Creator/BrianDePalma, in particular) whom she liked.

* Deconstructed in Richard Wolkomir's autobiographical story "The Best Criticism I Ever Received" published in an 1986 ''Reader's Digest'' issue. Wolkomir, as a young man, thought that imitating the CausticCritic style of his school newspaper editor was the best way to write his own reviews and completely savaged a theater production [[AccentuateTheNegative in spite of]] recognizing that the actors were sincerely doing the best they could with their limited experience and budget. He felt smugly proud about how creative his insults in the review had been, until the manager of that theater production told him bluntly, [[WhatTheHellHero "You hurt a lot of people."]] This incident motivated him to avert this trope in his later professional reviews by being more [[ConstructiveCriticism constructive]] and positive in them.
