Everyone is a bit of a nerd... [[TvTropesWillRuinYourLife especially you if you're reading this.]] Some more than others, but overall, everyone has at least some kind of media they love. Whenever it be {{sports}}, a [[{{Television}} TV show]], a {{videogame}}, the list goes on. That being said, do you ever get annoyed when someone... gets the facts wrong about your favorite show/sport/videogame/etc.? For example, someone claiming Goku from the [[DragonBall Dragon Ball series]] is human. For those who are uninformed, Goku isn't human, he is a saiyan. Obviously, this would easily piss off any extreme fans of DragonBall, if you claimed that Goku was human. In fact, you could say that those [[TitleDrop nerds would... rage.]] However, people aiming to {{Troll}} will invoke the trope in others by spewing misinformation on purpose just to see people get angry over it.

So yeah, Nerd Raging [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin is a nerd raging over a type of media they love oh so much.]] Most commonly [[{{Television}} TV shows]], but raging over other things does exist. In some cases, the nerd even goes into an UnstoppableRage, destroying all who get the facts wrong!... But, most of the time they just [[FanDumb bitch and moan, and complain that they are stupid, and should be killed etcetera, etcetera.]]

Related to GannonBanned where there is nerd rage over people that get details about something specific in a work wrong, such a character's name or origins.

!! '''Examples'''

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* ''ThirtyRock''. Liz Lemon actually screamed "NERD RAGE!" at Tracy Jordan when he said women couldn't do comedy.

[[AC:NewMedia]]
* During {{BrainScratchCommentaries}}'s second reading of their [[BrainScratchCommentaries own TvTropes page]] the crew come across an [[FanBoy Earthbound fanboy]] who claims that Ryan is idiotic as he doesn't understand stuff about the VideoGame/{{Mother}} series. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Ryan calls out this anonymous person, for putting complete crap on the page and told the anonymous person to "fuck off".]]

[[AC:VideoGames]]
* VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas has a perk called "Nerd rage" which requires high Science and greatly increases your physical capabilities when you're sufficiently near death.

[[AC:RealLife]]
* As already stated, any nerd who likes a particular type of media, will get pissed if you get the facts wrong. Most people who aren't fans of a nerd's favorite thing will usually not care about the finer details nor will they care about ticking off the fans who know all the details by heart.
