* As is the case with most SequelSeries, fans of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' that didn't like ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' have a tendency to believe that no one could possibly like the latter let alone like ''The Legend of Korra'' as much or more than ''The Last Airbender''. They often think that it is a bad series that is disrespectful and contradictory to the original series, and they think that most people think it is bad. In actuality, critics and quite a large amount of fans find the opposite (that the series is really good, pays respect to its predecessor, and is careful to keep track of continuity and consistency) to be true.

* The concept of WolverinePublicity falls under this. Many of the characters fans often cite as worn out or overexposed (like [[Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} the Trope Namer]], Comicbook/{{Batman}}, Comicbook/IronMan, Comicbook/SpiderMan, ect.) tend to be the most popular and profitable ones, which comes down to there being a large and less vocal group of fans who ''do'' actually enjoy them, despite what the internet may lead to you believe.

** There's also fandom rivalry between ''Sentai'' and ''PR'' fans that aren't fans of both over which is better. ''Sentai'' fans will bring up its more consistent maturity and mature elements that ''PR'' rarely uses. ''PR'' fans will bring up that ''PR'', usually, has a more better mix of humorous and serious elements, as ''Sentai'' usually flip flops depending on the series, and Japanese humor tends to be more in-your-face and over the top versus American humor, which is much more restrained and subdued. There are even fans who'll disavow one for reasons why they hate it.

** More recently, the controversy regarding ''Trek'' fan films (largely caused by the creators of ''WebVideo/PreludeToAxanar'') has split the fanbase firmly into three camps: those who consider the fans to be the true owners of ''Trek'' lore, while Paramount is just a bunch of {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s; those who believe that Paramount's legal ownership of the copyright means they're free to do whatever the hell they want with it; and those who haven't watched any fan films and don't get what all the fuss is about.

* Reactions of older readers for Creator/DCComics' ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch are getting this as well; many are still in shock that people are enjoying anything coming out of it.

* ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'': Given the incredible [[LongRunner breadth]] of the franchise, a ''lot'' of fans have become overly opinionated on which series is any good, and what constitutes a good introduction for new fans. A lot of the older fanbase will vehemently deny that anything outside of the Universal Century timelines is any good, most of the younger fanbase will find the older UC shows to be entirely too dated. Within the UC fanbase, there is a generally very hard divide between fans of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ' with a large amount saying ''Zeta'' was one of the best with ''ZZ'' one of the worst, and vice versa. This is in general due to the stark MoodWhiplash of ''Zeta'' to ''ZZ'', where a fan of one is generally a hater of the other.

* Really, if you go to any discussion board or [=YouTube=] comments section in which a particular game is the subject of conversation, you'll inevitably run into some of this from both defenders and critics of the game in question.

* TheSimpsons fans of a certain age generally take it for granted that the show is no longer worth watching and hasn't been for... oh, a decade or so, with abstinence from "new Simpsons" episodes a badge of honor for some. While the show isn't as broadly popular as it once was, a consistent supply of new, young viewers have kept the show's ratings respectable enough for it to be continually renewed year after year, edging ever-closer to season 30.
