* Although there is more to the character, Superboy-Prime from Franchise/TheDCU. Certain fans tend to focus on nothing but this one aspect of his character, largely because it sometimes reaches a very mean-spirited pitch.

* The WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fan video ''WebOriginal/ElementsOfCringe'' features a group of bronies crossing over into Equestria to drain their magic and turn into their {{OriginalCharacter}}s, while showing no actual empathy towards the ponies or world they claim to be fans of.

* ''Series/AgentsOfShield'' did this towards Ward fans in Dirty Half-Dozen, taking several arguments Ward fans used and dumbing them down to be easily responded by May's "We all have our traumas. Get over it." The fact that there is response to that or the fact SHIELD also killed two innocent to save one of their own was not addressed left many Ward fans unamused.
** The season finale was even more unsubtle, using a character as an obvious stand-in for Stand With Ward fans by having her quote the name verbatim while condoning him torturing someone because she is in love with Ward; never mind that most Stand With Ward fans are people who believe he can be redeemed and sympathize with him, not people who think his actions are justified or agree with what he is doing.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'': Collectimus. A big-headed, tantrum-throwing, sedentary, nasally-voice alien with NerdGlasses, he is presented as a parody of fans of Alien Force and Ultimate Alien. Professing himself to be Ben 10's biggest fan, he is obsessed with Ben 10 trivia and merchandise, specifically "collecting" the latter. However, he disregards the "real" Ben, complaining that the world of Omniverse should be DarkerAndEdgier and showing interest only in items from [[{{Ben10}} when Ben was younger]] and from a [[Ben10AlienForce low quality]] [[Ben10UltimateAlien Animesque knock-off]].

[[SarcasmMode Yes, because an adult's one bad day is just as bad and easily comparable to 30 terrible years from practically birth, through childhood, through teenager hood, all the way into adulthood.]] The fact that this obvious response or the fact SHIELD also killed two innocent to save one of their own was not addressed left many Ward fans unamused.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' had the "Please, Please, Please Get a Life Foundation", a support group for overly-obsessed fans, particularly of the Internet variety. What makes it even more disturbing is that it was largely based on a real guy, one Dennis Falk, the production team had encountered while working on ''TinyToonAdventures''. Not only that, it was significantly toned down from the real thing. TressMacNeille, Babs' voice actress had to cancel several convention appearances near his hometown because he had sent several very creepy fanletters that gave them reason to believe he would try to rape her.

* The ''NewKidsOnTheBlock'' cartoon, of all shows, had a character named Fanny. She and her friends were the very personification of NKOTB FanDumb of the time. Mind you, the ''only'' audience for this program were those very same obsessed New Kids fangirls, so we challenge our readers to find a more oddly-placed TakeThat. The various series and movies starring and NotQuiteStarring Music/TheBeatles also had mobs of [[GroupieBrigade screaming, insane fangirls]] - the thing is, none of them were established recurring characters. Most famously, ''A Hard Day's Night'' opens with the Beatles in full flight from a mob of their fans. The scene in ''A Hard Day's Night'' is actually a combination of TruthInTelevision and a subversion of this, as most of that scene was an actual stampede of fangirls which the quick-thinking Richard Lester told his crew to film.
