* With ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' and its sequels, Director Motomu Toriyama is seen this way by much of the fanbase. His statements in interviews paint him as either naively unaware of the fandom's opinions, or he knows and is purposefully invoking this trope. Such statements include that Lightning is the first female protagonist of the series (what about [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Terra]]?), that the sequel will answer the question of "is Lightning happy" (her presence turned out to be WolverinePublicity and this question was never addressed), and he requested a [[FanservicePack hotter and sexier]] design for Lightning in the third game (which fans and critics reacted negatively to). Furthermore, in both games fans have criticized the stories for not making sense, and he's an advocate for the interactive movie design model that fans hated in the first game. The MemeticMutation "Toriyama'd" is now shorthand for this trope when it comes to ''Final Fantasy''.

** Same goes with Serena's crush for Ash. Many fans expected this to go in an unexpected route, they weren't expecting ''Serena to actually kiss Ash''. The catch? While there's leadup to it that shows she's doing it, the actual kiss isn't even shown on screen! Even though Ash is shocked as a result...the kiss was still done right as she was leaving for Hoenn, either never to be seen again or not to be seen again for a long time. [[StatusQuoIsGod Status Quo really is their God]].]]

** With Kokonoe now playable, in spite of the problems above, it seems that the fandom accusation to Mori is that he's doing the same ever since the earlier days, except this time to her father Jubei. Indeed, this badass cat has yet to see the light of playable even as Mori also ''teased'' on how he might be playable in the future through several Omake segments. Up until now after the announcement of ''Central Fiction''... there hasn't been signs of him being playable, or being in such condition as well. [[spoiler:His last appearance was being gravely wounded by Nine.]] ''Central Fiction'' was nearing its console release, and the newcomers include his wife Nine, the new BigBad Hades Izanami, former NPC Hibiki Kohaku, main protagonist of the Japan-only graphic novel Naoto Kurogane and the heroine of ''VisualNovel/XBlazeCodeEmbryo'' Es. Yep, no Jubei in sight. And what's worse, the [[AmericansHateTingle mostly-reviled-in-West]] Mai Natsume gets into the console version, and ''still no Jubei''.

** Many fans are insistent that Creator/TVTokyo had done this with ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' concerning the Kalos League Finals. Many of the videos, ads and other material make it seem like Ash Ketchum/Satoshi will finally win a Pokemon League Championship after 20 years of constant failures. [[spoiler:The fact that [[StatusQuoIsGod he didn't]]]] has caused many fans to essentially throw up their hands and walk away in anger.
** Same goes with Serena's crush for Ash. Many fans expected this to go in an unexpected route, but like with the league, [[spoiler: [[ObliviousToLove Ash fails to notice]] and Serena gets friend-zoned. [[StatusQuoIsGod Status Quo really is their God]].]]

anger. It doesn't help that fans tried to hype lapsed viewers of the Pokemon anime into watching it with considerable evidence that they thought Ash was going to win...only for it to not happen and said lapsed fans complained even harder about it. If it ever does actually happen, lapsed fans aren't gonna believe it if anyone tries to warn them about it again!

** This also dates back to the ''[[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Diamond and Pearl]]'' era.

* Creator/AdultSwim, listening to fan demand for a new season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', decided to indulge their fans by giving out a fax number and asking fans to send their requests to the AS offices... where they were then fed straight from the printer into a shredder. On a live stream.

** Faith No More have also picked up on the trolling of other. [[http://www.faithnomoreblog.com/2010/05/faith-no-more-from-archives.html At one famous 1995 show]], noise rock band Steel Pole Bath Tub played an opening set for Faith No More consisting of nothing but "[[Music/BlackSabbath Paranoid]]" and "[[Music/CheapTrick Surrender]]" over and over again, making the audience incredibly angry as a result. When Faith No More came on stage, they opened [[http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/faith-no-more/1995/the-brewery-louisville-ky-1bd02d8c.html their set]]...with their ''own'' version of "Paranoid" and teased the audience with its opening riff multiple times throughout the show. For their encore, they brought Steel Pole Bath Tub back on stage to play "Paranoid" for the ''seventh'' time in the show.

** In in inversion, Ono intended to use the original Mega Man for ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', but Keiji Inafune kiboshed that by saying it had already been done before and challenged him to try something unique. Off the top of his head, Ono suggested taking Bad Box Art Mega Man and making him obese and middle-aged as a joke at how 25 years had passed since Mega Man's creation. Inafune loved the idea, but Mega Man fans hated it and accused Capcom of rubbing the salt in following the cancellation of ''Mega Man Universe'' and ''Mega Man Legends 3''.
