* The eponymous entity in the Franchise/CthulhuMythos has a name that will never have an agreed pronunciation (especially since Lovecraft himself used no fewer than three different pronunciations depending on when you asked him, and even then he insisted that these were merely about as close as a human mouth could get to the real pronunciation), and each pronunciation has a following that will ridicule and shun those who pronounce it differently.

** Accusing ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' of being another mindless blockbuster, no different than something [[Creator/MichaelBay]] would create.

*** To wit: Games Workshop killed off their 30 year old Fantasy franchise in an incredibly [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking petty, mean-spirited and badly written]] manner, in order to launch their new Age of Sigmar line. Age of Sigmar was universally derided due to its [[ObviousBeta poor rules]], [[TheyJustDidntCare lazy setting]] and [[MoneyDearBoy changing the names of everything so they could be copyrighted]]. Fantasy fans were outraged that their beloved game had been defiled in such a terrible way. Admitting you like the game will make people assume you're either an idiot who can't play a 'proper' wargame, or a GW fanboy who will buy any old crap the company produces.

* Don't mention Age of Sigmar to a Fantasy player. If you want your death to be particularly brutal, say that you actually ''like'' it.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has several ways to set off fans that vary from circle to circle. Since the examples themselves can be construed as FlameBait, it's for the best not to mention any of them here.

** Whether or not
the examples themselves show can be construed described as FlameBait, it's an anime can generate a lot of heated debate. It's a western show that borrows very heavily from anime, leading to confusion over its status. Even the show's creators have heard of the argument and try to avoid getting involved.
** Whether or not the show will ever have LBGT characters can cause friction. The creators originally stated that they're up
for it, and would want the best not characters to mention any of them here.discover their sexuality in their own time. So far, no characters have been confirmed to be LBGT, making the subject a sensitive one within the fandom.

** This holds also true for holidays and traditions associated with it. July 4th isn't a holiday in the UK, Germany's thanksgiving is on a different date and celebrated differently, and so on.

** Try calling ''Franchise/LegendsOfChima'' a rip-off of ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' in the presence of the former's fans. Expect them to spit on you for assuming so simply because the main protagonists and their races in both series look similar. On the opposite end, ''[=ThunderCats=]'' fans will refuse to believe that it ''isn't'' a rip-off, primarily because of it being released on the heels of the latter's cancellation.
