** '''Made The Wrong Turn''': Similar to the Genre Alien, these are haters who are fans of a work that somehow directly offends their worldview or beliefs or something similar. Political conservatives who are fans of StephenColbert, for example, or homophobes that find themselves fans of Music/{{Queen}} or Music/XJapan, or fundamentalist Christians who somehow like Series/{{Supernatural}}. Often overlaps with the Mad Editor (in that they will deny or change elements of the work that upset their personal morals, ''even if that's the point of the work''), the PC Crusader or the Un-PC Crusader (in that they will rail at whatever is offending them and the fans that are okay with it), the Demonizer, and/or the Mad Homophobe.

** More often than not, the above two members of Hate Dumb will fight, for obvious reasons, and cause a vicious cycle of blaming the other for taking drastic action (i.e.: FanWank). And more often than not, the PC Crusader will fight with other Crusaders over what minority is more oppressed, if a minority should be treated as a sacred cow or like anyone else, etc. etc. In any case, it's great fun to watch.

* '''Fan Hater:''' These cannot dislike a work ''and'' accept that it appeals to other people. [[OpinionMyopia How dare someone have such bad taste?]] They simply aren't content to live and let live. {{Fan Hater}}s are prone to blindly bashing fans and stereotyping them all into one or two categories of people (example: Celebrity magazines are only bought by gay men, morbidly obese middle aged housewives, and people who need to line their bird cages!). Sometimes, they might even say that people are "only pretending to like the object of their contempt" (because they're "sheep" or whatever). These people seem to see themselves as the "Average" demographic, and when someone likes something they don't, they become unable to see ''why''. (The [[ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow inverse]] happens, too) It doesn't matter whether most of the fandom fits this description or not. Often prone to making up stories about FanDumb ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow. Many times, these people are acting like FanFiction and Fan Art itself is somehow affecting one's enjoyment of the series, or affects the actual quality of what the author's writing (Many of which have ''never'' read the fanfiction in the first place) of the show.[[note]] Some who actually ''do'' acknowledge the fanfiction but hate others are more rival fans and Fandumb[[/note]] Fan Haters may often judge a show's quality based ''entirely'' off of its fans, whilst ignoring the other FanDumb of their own interests. This may be justifiable under online-only games like ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', but these guys will often trash single-player only games like ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' on the basis of their fans. Mentioning any of the Fandom that's ''not'' fitting this stereotype will often result in something similar to NoTrueScotsman. In the minds of {{Fan Hater}}s, there is no such thing as Fandom. There is only FanDumb.

* '''The Hate-Obsessed Fan''': They hate the show. They hate every one of the 42 hours per week they spend watching it. They hate every one of the 49 hours per week they spend blogging about it. They hate the crappy merchandise and only buy it all so that they can get a deeper knowledge of the many ways it's bad... It's the opposite of "Complaining about works one didn't take in". Being informed about the work so one isn't accused of blindly complaining [[TropesAreTools is good,]] but this hater takes it overboard by spending more time obsessing over their object of hate than the fans do. Expect some of these people to use the InsaneTrollLogic that somehow, ''because'' this show is still on, it affects the quality of the shows that ''they'' like. Corporate creators love this kind of Hate Dumb better than a lukewarm fandom -- it's more profitable, and gives them free advertisement. (They spread the show word of mouth, people actually see it to see how bad it really is...you get the picture. See the PeripheryDemographic of ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic]]'' for how effective advertisers these anti-fans can be). In a nutshell; this is the kind of person who claims to have been lost as a customer; yet they keep buying from you again and again...and sometimes even brings in ''new'' customers who try out of BileFascination and discover CriticalBacklash instead. ** '''IWasJustPassingThrough:''' Hate-obsessed fans who claim, not just that they hate the show, but that they've found something better. Yet, no matter what, they are true to their original Hate Dumb despite the new show. Their perverse attachment to the old hated work is often stronger than that to the show they claim to be a fan of -- assuming they aren't Gushing About Shows They Don't Watch. These customers are like the above; but they make sure to let you know that your competitors are better...yet for some reason keep going back to you. Very common in [[MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame [=MMOs=]]] where you'll see somebody raving about how much better some other [=MMO=] is.

* '''Hipster Hater''': Often a hate-obsessed fan. They insist that their obsession with the object of their hate is "ironic", or insist that any work which becomes mainstream has "sold out" and cannot be TrueArt: [[ItsPopularNowItSucks if it's popular, it sucks.]] They cannot be an acknowledged fan to a popular work, so they are this instead. This tends to overlap with business hatred, too. Many of these guys will buy alternate brand names or other such stuff to "Stick it to the man". Expect many of these people to complain about businesses trying to make a profit, such as saying it is "unforgivable" that businesses *gasp* have terms of service or ask ''money'' for their works. Corporate creators have no problems with this sort of Hate Dumb, either.

Sorry but the term "Foe yay" sounds creepy and inappropriate when applied to this situation. "Hate-obsessed" makes more sense

* '''[[PeripheryHatedom The Genre Alien]]''': The Genre Alien is a rather amusing hater, a less focused version of the FoeYay variety. They will make it clear that they utterly hate a genre, or a series. Nevertheless, they seek works in that genre out. They see examples of it and ''then'' complain how much it sucks. Interestingly, they are likely to criticize stuff that makes the genre [[AnthropicPrinciple what it is]]. (For instance, they might complain about kiss scenes in ''romance movies'', blood and swearing in ''Film/DieHard'', or soft rock band America not being "heavy enough".) They may be constructive, or attempt to be constructive, but when they start complaining about Fundamental Genre tropes as "weaknesses" or suggest rewriting the show in its entirety and changing the story to fit how they would view it as an improvement, (This is not considered constructive criticism in the creative writing field) then it pretty much stops being constructive criticism and starts to veer into "Destructive Criticism" territory. This brings out a subspecies called '''The Mad Editor'''.

** '''Review Trolls'''. These are people who actively go on user review sites such as Amazon.com or Metacritic and post 1 star reviews for pretty much anything within their respective hatedom. They might have never even seen/heard/played the work in question. They'll just post a one to three sentence "review", [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike saying that the work sucks without really describing why.]] In some cases, they might even create multiple accounts posting one star reviews for the work (or works) in question just to bring down the average review score. Alternatively, on sites that allow users to rate reviews as "Helpful" or "Not Helpful," they might hit "Not Helpful" for any positive (or even average) review of the work in question, regardless of how well written or informative the review is, while hitting "Helpful" for any one star reviews they come across (even the most poorly constructed ones). They might even create one or more alternate accounts specifically to write multiple one star reviews for the same work, hit "Helpful" for one of their very own reviews or for somebody else's (usually a fellow Review Troll's) one star review. Or to hit "Not Helpful" for somebody else's five star review. Needless to say, such people can seriously bring down the quality of a review page and can be especially dangerous for people who check review sites for, you know, a helpful range of opinions on the subject at hand. A similar breed of people crops up in FanDumb as well.
