* The author behind ''Fanfic/{{Renegade}}'' draws an inordinate amount of pleasure from toying with the readers, offering periodic bits of WordOfGod and copious amounts of [[ShrugOfGod shrugs]]. One of his favorite non-answers in [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=163762 the discussion thread]] on {{Spacebattles}} is to respond to someone's question or comment with a picture of [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} David Xanatos]] with a smug grin on his face. The deliberate vagueness of the picture (Am I on the right track? Am I completely wrong? Does he know something I don't? ''GAAAAAAAAH!'') just makes it worse.

** ''Final Fantasy Versus XIII'' is their latest game they love to do this for. Imposing questions about the game will elicit a response completely unrelated to ''Versus XIII''.

to:

** ''Final ''[[{{Vaporware}} Final Fantasy Versus XIII'' is their latest game they love XIII]]'' was notorious for this. About 7 years of hush-hush ensued until the announcement of its change to do this for. ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''. Imposing questions about the game will would elicit a response completely unrelated to ''Versus XIII''.XIII''.



** With the announcement of its changing its title to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV,'' that era (about 7 years) of hush-hush with occasional bits more of teasing in latter years has finally wound down. Until its release, though...

** Once, he attempted what was perhaps his biggest joke on the readers at the time, when he appeared to end the ''entire comic'' on a [[AllJustADream horrible anticlimax]], expecting to get a ton of hate mail and rile up his fans. This backfired when he got a ton of mail sincerely ''thanking'' him for the years of great comics, and assuring him that the anticlamix was horrible, and thus, [[StealthInsult the perfect ending for the particular comic]]. He appreciated the irony; his favorite joke, a joke on the reader, [[InsultBackfire whipped right back around]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny and became a joke on HIM.]]

* DanSchneider became this when he joined the internet fandom a season into the airing of ''Series/{{iCarly}}''. He's heavily pushed his 2 current shows ''Series/{{iCarly}}'' and ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' online and they have some of the best tie-in websites of any media, television or otherwise. He become aware of fandom and the almost exclusive {{Shipping}} focus. He then turned what was a relatively non-explosive online community into a Sam/Freddie vs Carly/Freddie [[ShipToShipCombat Ship War]] that rivalled anything Nick had ever seen including [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Kaatang/Zutara]]. The usual method was inserting lines into his blogs referencing whatever pairing was ''not'' the focus of the episode. Caused something of a backlash when the fans figured out what was happening.

** Going to ask Valve on whether or not episode 3 for ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' (or Half-Life 3) will ever be produced? Expect answers of every kind that does not include a yes or no.

to:

* In nearly every ''Anime/YuGiOh'' series, each character has or gains a SuperpoweredEvilSide, which is seen by fans to be one of the best parts of a show, and actively and eagerly await for any new protagonist to have one.''Anime/YuGiOhARCV'' delivers on the evil side, but takes a crack at the audience with Yuya's dark side: they were originally a normal entertainer who, in order to appeal to increasingly demanding and bloodthirsty fans, became more violent and cruel in his duels until he and his monsters went mad and turned against them. So the start of this character's downfall is because the audience wanted it - and since the real-life audience wants that sort of thing, they're also to blame.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/DavidWeber has an official forum. His primary use for this forum is, naturally, to set the [[Literature/HonorHarrington treecat]] [[HoldYourHippogriffs among the Sphinxian chipmunks]] with various teases, out-of-context excerpts, and [[TrollingCreator suspiciously well-timed]] "tum te tum te tum"s, then vanish to parts unknown to watch the fur fly. One can only assume [[PassThePopcorn popcorn is involved]].
