* Despite ''Manga/{{Yuureitou}}'' making it extremely clear that Tetsuo is a [[{{transsexual}} transgender man}}, many fans view him as a SweetPollyOliver. Even after Taichi himself makes this mistake and Tetsuo tells him otherwise, many fans thought Tetsuo would stop "crossdressing" by the end and end up with Taichi. [[spoiler:They are the OfficialCouple but Tetsuo is still living as a man]].

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': Those who ship Levi/Eren (or are against it, as it may be) out of the belief that Levi is genuinely a BastardBoyfriend who kicked Eren at the court trial out of [[ForTheEvulz sadism]], even though he reveals it's an act and apologizes in the very next scene. It's one thing to make use of AlternateCharacterInterpretations and another to ignore canon so you can cite scenes out of context as proof your FetishFuel or RonTheDeathEater interpretation is the real one.



* Believe it or not, fans of ''Manga/FrankenFran'', but Fran isn't [[VillainProtagonist evil]]. Nor is her sister Veronica supposed to be good. If you truly pay attention, then you'll notice that they are both intended to be neutral. It's especially apparent with the {{OVA}}s, where no violence happens and its slapstick fun. Fans can't just let the kids live normally.
** Fran may be sorta kinda well-intentioned, but her intervention in people's lives makes her more amoral than neutral, assuming [[BlueAndOrangeMorality she's even on the same moral plane as others]].

normally. Fran may be sorta kinda well-intentioned, but her intervention in people's lives makes her more amoral than neutral, assuming [[BlueAndOrangeMorality she's even on the same moral plane as others]].



* In the ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}'' anime, the rival of each series induces one of these. While they're normally a jerk to Ash instead of a friendly competitor, a lot of people cheer them on for this, saying that they're much cooler than Ash and better trainers. This is most evident in Paul, the Sinnoh rival. Yet people still cheered him on when he ''abused his Pokemon'' in order to make them stronger. This is because Paul's methods are quite similar to the methods the competitive video game players use to obtain their Pokémon[[note]]not including glitches or manipulating the random number generator[[/note]], making him an instant foil to Ash's [[ThePowerOfFriendship friendship-and-love]] approach and a TakeThat to those players. Instead, Paul became an AudienceSurrogate for some of these players and an anchor point to the normally unwatchable-for-them anime.
** [[SmallNameBigEgo Gary Oak in the original series]] is more a YMMV though. Yes, he was two steps ahead of Ash for most of said series, but [[BreakTheHaughty he also suffered crucial failures as well]]. Adding salt to the wound, Ash succeeded in some of those said scenarios. Gary losing to the preliminaries that Ash got through in the Indigo League? Check. Being owned by Giovanni's Mewtwo? Check. Gary losing to Ash '''himself''' during the Johto Tournament. Indeed, check.

* The ''Manga/WanderingSon'' fandom can be this at times. A lot of the fandom seems to be under the impression that either, or both, of the protagonists [[TransEqualsGay are just gay]] despite the fact that the manga explicitly states several times that they are {{Transsexual}}, and even has a post-op trans woman like Yuki who they compare to. Similarly many OtokonokoGenre fans are drawn to the series. Other fans think it's a romance shojo where PlatonicLifePartners Takatsuki and Nitori are going to end up in the end, despite it being marketed as ''{{seinen}}'' instead. They have ShipTease, [[spoiler:though nothing becomes of it]], however it is a ComingOfAgeStory instead of a romance.

Added DiffLines:

* ''PleaseTellMeGalkoChan'' spends a lot of time debunking myths surrounding women's bodies, ultimately pointing out that you shouldn't judge people by their appearances. This is heavily underlined through Galko, whose entire class assumes is sexually frivolous because she has a large chest and a flashy wardrobe, but the show takes pains to show that not only is that nowhere near the case, the implication of such might actually hurt Galko herself. So of course, the merchandise and fan-oriented works all focus on how hawt Galko is!

* Many YaoiFangirl's have complained that the protagonist of ''Manga/AiNoShintairiku'' should "stop dressing as a girl" and find her annoying for doing so. Sara is [[{{transsexual}} transgender]]. The manga is all about that and has her love interest come to accept the fact.

* ''Manga/InitialD'' has caused a huge fandom for the Toyota Corolla AE86, despite the whole point being Takumi is an amazing driver who can win despite his old outdated car, as opposed to because of it. There's a huge amount of dialogue about how the 86 is outdated and not all that fast, but Takumi's superior driving skills are what makes him win.

* The anime {{Shiki}} has this big time. The show is supposed to be a morally gray spin on the vampire genre where both sides could be considered in the wrong and there is no real good or evil side. It is a simple battle of two species who cannot coexist. Both sides end up doing horrible things by the end of the show just to protect their species and community from destruction. Despite this being somewhat clear [[FanDumb many people don't get this (the entire point of the series)]] and seem to act like one side is clearly good and the other is pure evil. The Shiki supporters tend to be more self aware but the human supporters are down right militant with their view of the Shiki being pure evil and the humans being fully justified. They will even claim that the holocaust of the Shiki at the end of the show was perfectly justified while the Shiki feeding on the humans to survive is complete, pitch black, evil. The show seems to be too intelligently written for the typical audience that views anime though so the show's nuanced morality may go over the heads of most. This is not helped by the fact that both sides have a few bad people on them.

* In ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' a lot of fans seem to dislike whenever nothing "scary" or gory happens. They're completely missing the point of the series. We're supposed to be ''happy'' that there is nothing wrong and that everyone can just go on with their lives.
** In fact, the authors of the Higurashi Visual Novels were heavily influenced by Key's Visual Novels such as Kanon, which work by contrasting simple, happy scenes which build up to plot twists and extremely emotional sad scenes, and were very effective at bringing players to tears. Higurashi's authors adopted a similar pattern of happy scenes and horror scenes to give the horror more impact: hence, the happy parts are integral to the overall horror effect.

* ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' was intended to make fun of the school romance''/''[[CastFullOfPrettyBoys bishounen harem]] genre. [[IndecisiveParody It includes many common character and plot tropes]]; however, many fans don't seem to realize or care that the tropes are ''not'' being played straight. Other fangirls are capable of self-deprecation. Still others see it as the best of both worlds, with the cuteness of a romantic comedy and the funnier humor of an AffectionateParody.
