** Whining about how the paleontological discoveries of the last several decades have "ruined your childhood" (namely the almost certain presence of feathers on T. rex and Velociraptor) is an even more surefire way to earn you a punch in the face.

** Whining about how the paleontological discoveries of the last several decades have "ruined your childhood" (namely the almost fact that at least certain presence of theropods, and quite possibly most dinosaurs in general, had feathers on T. rex and Velociraptor) or feather-like integument of some form) is an even more surefire way to earn you a punch in the face.

* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'' fans get pretty annoyed when people call the game the "video game version of ''Saw''", which is a rather bad berserk button to have when this is pretty much what every professional reviewer who reviewed the game said. Hardcore fans however will point out that "999 is much more original than ''Saw''" and that "if you actually pay attention to the game's entire plot, it's actually nothing like ''Saw''". In actual fact, the game was heavily inspired, not by ''Saw'', but by Eastern horror movies, in which the theme is less about sadistic people inducing violence, and more about sadisticly inducing fear. The theme of the game, going through a game involving puzzle filled rooms, has been compared to ''Saw'', but as fans are quick to point out, the actual puzzles and entire set up for why they exist in the first place is nothing like it. The same goes for its sequel ''VirtuesLastReward''.

* Asking "what if Operation Sealion had been successful" or even mentioning the "Unmentionable Sea Mammal" in a non-ironic way on AlternateHistoryDotCom is sure to end in much banging of heads against walls in frustration at the prospect of having to explain to yet another noob just why it could not, under any circumstances, have worked.

* Selling a pinball machine for way above the market price can get you a lot of flak from pinheads alike. And if you ''especially'' happen to do this on the Pinside Forums (which have gained infamy for their toxicity), then expect your "for sale" ad to escalate into an ugly FlameWar.

** The second Superman vs. Goku manages to hurt even ''more'' feelings, this time from both sides of the fandom. Not only did Superman beat Goku again, he did it more easily despite Goku having two major power-ups since their last fight. The reason, Superman is always holding back and he has unlimited power. ''Franchise/DragonBall'' fans call this a cop-out since [=ScrewAttack=] didn't want to do anymore ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' videos, and Superman fans were mad since there are several characters in the [=DCU=] who are stronger than Superman and it reinforces the idea that Superman is a boring GodModeSue. It also goes against [[WordOfGod DC's]] own official word that Superman, while extremely powerful, does have limits. ''Dragon Ball'' fans were also pissed that Goku would say he didn't want to surpass Superman since then there would be no one for him to surpass afterwards, which Goku doesn't cares about in canon and he wants to be the strongest in the universe. This subject actually became more bitter after ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' aired and shows Goku having feats that rivals or surpasses Superman. ''Death Battle'' refuses a round 3 since Superman will always win regardless of how powerful Goku becomes because he has 'no limits'.

* For the Superman vs Goku ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle''''s'', don't tell a ''Franchise/DragonBall'' fan that ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' deserved both wins or else Saiyan-sized flames will erupt. Don't even try explaining Death Battle's logic on how Superman will always win against Goku.

to:

* ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'': Since this is a web series that have fan-favorite characters fight to death, hurt feelings about who will win was enviable. Some fights, however, are more bitter than others:

** Majin Buu vs. Kirby fight is also a sore subject in the ''Dragon Ball'' fandom. Many expected Buu to easily cakewalk Kirby since Buu has one of the most broken powersets in the series. [[spoiler: When Buu actually lost]] the fandom declared ''Death Battle'' to be bias against anime.

** The exception to the "apostrophes mark possessives" rule: ''it's'', with an apostrophe, is a contraction of ''it is''; ''its'', with no apostrophe, is the possessive form. Do not confuse them around GrammarNazi types (for that matter, be careful calling people Grammar Nazis - some resent the comparison to Nazi Germany, some resent the notion that good grammar is unimportant and they're just being pedantic, and some [[TakeAThirdOption are apparently just looking for something else to chew you out about]]).
