* There is a tendency for a VocalMinority of trans people on the internet to assume everyone is as well read on the subject as them, or they must be a bigot. People who, for instance, insist on the use of the term 'cis' by non-trans people, without thinking that this kind of controlling behaviour would be considered oppressive if it was directed at them. Fortunately, the majority of trans people are laidback about the subject.

*** Conveniently forgotten by said fans was the real enthusiasm for Moffat from fans who absolutely hated everything Russell T. Davies had done to series (save bringing the show back after nearly two decades). In particular he was criticized for focusing too much on the companions (making it into a soap opera) and ludicrous series finales (destroying ever increasing amounts of reality then hitting the reset button).

* The Console Wars. The three groups of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft often collide with each other, and arguments spawn from literally everywhere, ranging from Website/{{GameFAQs}}, Website/YouTube, and even Amazon. Although it's usually "*insert console here* sucks", there are times where those on the offensive will go even further and begin insulting those who ''like'' the console they hate. Expect to hear the word "fanboy" a lot in these fights. A similar issue occurs between vonsole gamers and PC gamers, although there is often overlap between them. Mobile gaming also gives and gets flack from the other parties as well.

* Intimacy is a major one with some people. For instance, people who are social butterflies tend to have difficulty comprehending how anyone could [[LonersAreFreaks actually enjoy being alone]]. Likewise, people who crave hugs and/or other intimate forms of affection tend to believe that, deep down inside, ''everyone'' craves that type of affection.

* Windows vs Linux (or any other operating system). Visit any tech support message board and view posts that describe the problem and their system specs. Inevitably someone will always say something along the lines of, "[system runs on Windows 10], that's your problem right there."

The formal academic term for this phenomenon is the "false consensus effect", where a person tends to overestimate the extent to which their beliefs or opinions are typical of those of others.

others. It's also related to ConfirmationBias in that people tend to ignore evidence that might prove their cherished opinions are inaccurate.

* The general feedback loop of 'Oh my God, grown men like ''WesternAnimation/{{My Little Pony|Friendship Is Magic}}'' now?!'/'Yeah, we like ''My Little Pony'' now, what are you gonna do about it?' has led many [[PeripheryDemographic bronies]] to forget that the show has just as many fans in its target demographic (that is, small children, especially of the female variety) as it does grown men and women, which occasionally causes friction when people who ''haven't'' forgotten this ask them to try and make their... [[RuleThirtyFour not quite]] [[{{Grimdark}} work safe]] material a little less accessible for the young'uns. Which has apparently led to the newly-penned "Brony Pledge", which is less a "pledge" and more of a "stern reminder from one of us to the rest of you". Which, admittedly, is in and of itself rather more decorum than one usually sees from fandoms that have an excess of RuleThirtyFour.

* ''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.
