*** Ironically enough, that line was said by [[GenreSavvy General Tarquin]], who has his own (albeit minor) MisaimedFandom. A fair number of the fandom still interprets Tarquin as an AffablyEvil [[EvilIsCool is Cool]] NobleDemon, despite all his appearnces post-[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0913.html comic#913]] and Word of God quite clearly demonstrating that he is a FauxAffablyEvil,[[TheSociopath sociopathic]] ControlFreak.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Lalli was deliberately written as being socially and emotionally maladjusted due to his upbriging on top of possibly having a few neural issues, to the point that many fans consider him a quite realistic portrayal of autism. He's shown to be a good and hard-working person at heart, but extremely prone to BrutalHonesty and to have NoSocialSkills. The end result is that each time events leave him in bad enough mood (and always for a good reason), anyone trying to interact with him during his much-needed alone time will be met with an extremely abrasive reaction, even if they are one of the two members of the crew Lalli gets along with the rest of the time. Such moments cause some readers to treat Lalli as if he's an outright {{Jerkass}} acting out for no good reason. This becomes especially visible when Lalli enters a state of depression because of his cousin [[spoiler:basically getting a death sentence]], which results in him getting easier to "set off" and still getting "what a jerk" reactions, despite the fact that he cares very much about his cousin being the cause of his bad mood.

** This was both Lampshaded and Discussed in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0788.html this]] strip, when fan-favorite villain [[spoiler:[[PshcopathicManChild Thog]]]] shows up as a gladiator. "No matter how many people he kills, the audience thinks he's lovable."

** As Rolfe's page on TheOtherWiki notes, the original joke of the Angry Video Game Nerd character was that it was absurd ''at the time'' for a grown man to get [[SeriousBusiness so mad]] about video games. Ten years on, it's common to see ordinary forum posters with AVGN levels of rage, partly because the character's influence ended up making disproportionate rage about games a [[FanDumb normal part of gamer culture]].

* ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'': some people, as highlighted in [[http://karjack.livejournal.com/656327.html?format=light this essay]], are arguing that a large part of the audience seems to have missed the point especially in the way it tackled the idea of [[spoiler:WomenInRefrigerators and of Billy as a [[DoggedNiceGuy Nice Guy]]. Billy's complete transformation into the Dr. Horrible persona is clearly and unambiguously portrayed as a tragedy; not only because of the loss of Penny, but because it costs him the very humanity that his friend associates with. Some people are still going to prefer the WellIntentionedExtremist Dr. Horrible over the nebbish StalkerWithACrush Billy.]]

* Game reviews by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/IGSRJ IGSRJ]], which serve as dual Irate Gamer parodies/[[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd AVGN]] tributes, not only include horrible games, but also games generally believed to be ''the best of all time'', including ''[[SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros. 3]]'', ''MortalKombat'' and ''[[VideoGame/DukeNukem Duke Nukem 3D]]''. He does a well enough job at [[AccentuateTheNegative Accentuating The Negative]] that reading the comments reveals that many viewers consistently either bitch about how wrong IGSRJ is, or more stupidly, ''agree'' with his arguments.

* Matt Furie, the creator of ''Webcomic/BoysClub'', gets a real kick out of the fact that Pepe the Frog is an [[MemeticMutation internet meme]], but he was [[https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/sep/14/pepe-the-frog-artist-supports-hillary-clinton considerably less stoked]] about its adoption as a mascot by the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName alt-right]], to the point where the Anti-Defamation League named it a hate symbol. He points out that the comic's FunnyAnimals are diverse, and that Pepe, being ''green'', could not possibly be a white supremacist. He and his publisher eventually put out an [[http://fantagraphics.com/flog/truthaboutpepe/ official statement]] rejecting the 'nihilism' of the alt-right movement and describing Pepe as "a peaceful cartoon amphibian who represents love, acceptance, and fun. [[TheStoner (And getting stoned.)]]" Furie eventually admitted more or less defeat in reclaiming his character, as he decided to kill Pepe off by depicting his funeral in a special one page comic released on Free Comic Book Day 2017.
