* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Kirito does this early on, when many players are angry at the beta testers for hoarding their knowledge, and it looks like persecution of beta testers in general (even those who are genuinely trying to help) is going to become a thing. Kirito, a beta tester himself, acts like a JerkAss glory hound and gets labelled a "Beater" ('''B'''eta Tester + Ch'''eater'''), thereby creating a new category and getting people to focus their anger on players who take advantage of other players, rather than on beta testers in general.
