** In another episode, Peter is watching a public access show devoted entirely to talking about how awesome Music/{{KISS}} is. They get a caller who says "KISS sucks!", prompting Peter to angrily declare "Trace the call!" The host recognizes the voice as Music/{{Styx}}'s lead singer Dennis [=DeYoung=], and proceeds to insult him and his band.

The thing is that to these people, art is SeriousBusiness and they treat their enjoyment of art the way [[StopHavingFunGuys some people]] take to [[TournamentPlay competitive gaming]]. If you like anything not up to their standards, they will either mock you, mock that thing in front of your face, or just go on a diatribe about why you shouldn't like that thing. To make matters worse, they will also stereotype fans (e.g., anybody who likes comic books is an obese loser; anyone who likes anime is some annoying, anti-American, over-obsessive wannabe Japan-fetishizing freak; people who like cartoons are [[ManChild Man Children]]; [[DoubleStandard boys who watch]] [[GirlShowGhetto girls' cartoons]] [[UnfortunateImplications are gay]]; anyone who likes metal/punk is a wannabe tough guy or a pretentious hipster jackass; people who like rap are wangsters; anyone who watches ProfessionalWrestling is a redneck-homo and thinks it's 100% real; etc.) and not fitting any of these stereotypes will induce either a NoTrueScotsman or they'll still find at least one thing they find negative and stereotype the fans of the work with said negative thing. Fan Haters tend to refer to the targets of their hatred as the "LowestCommonDenominator" or "unwashed masses".

* Quite a few people thought that ''WebVideo/TheBlockbusterBuster'' fell into this with his review of ''Film/BatmanVSuperman'' wherein he had a sycophantic fanboy blind to the flaws of the film appear on screen during his review of the film, and earlier in the review insisted that "True Fans" of the DCU shouldn't like the movie or the ''Franchise/DCEU.''

* Don East of ''Anime Abomination'' usually avoids this, but he had a particularly sour spot towards ''Manga/BlueExorcist.'' When the show was airing on Toonami, he would get annoyed that the series got better ratings than ''Manga/OnePiece,'' [[BiasSteamroller a series he regularly puts on a pedestal]]. At one point, he said that if ''Blue Exorcist'' got better ratings than ''One Piece,'' he said he hoped for the fan's sake he would never meet them at a convention he was going to, which sound like a threat.

* WebVideo/TheRageaholic falls into this A LOT. Especially towards fans of the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' Franchise and Hideo Kojima in general. But this extends to pretty much anyone who enjoys things he doesn't like, the list of which is extensive.

* [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] is prone to doing this and he doesn't just hate one kind of gamer - he's hated on people who like {{Eastern RPG}}s, Western {{RPG}}s, Silent Hill fans, people who like ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', people who played ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', people who didn't play ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', console gamers, PC gamers, fans of point and click adventure games, people who own a Wii, fans of {{MMORPG}}s, Korean gamers, fans of sprite comics, fans of ''WebAnimation/ControlAltDelete'', fans of ''VideoGame/TheSims'', Retro gamers, Indie gamers, people who hate retro, people who hate indies, Creator/JossWhedon, anyone who likes Joss Whedon, etc. Most it is hyperbolic though, and plays into the MisanthropeSupreme HatesEveryoneEqually persona he adopts for the reviews, and he frequently drops {{Hypocrisy Nod}}s as he is a self-admitted fan of quite a few things from the preceding list.
