** The character of Kankri has made more people aware of the concept of {{trigger}}s and has given rise to more fanfic writers providing warnings...despite the fact that he's supposed to be an obnoxious StrawmanPolitical whose obsession with triggers is annoying and misguided at best.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[FirstLawOfGenderBending three]] [[SecondLawOfGenderBending laws of]] [[ThirdLawOfGenderBending gender bending]] were coined to show that the stereotypical GenderBending plot is ''fundamentally flawed'', as the characters don't react anything like an actual human being would to their situation. Fans of the genre seem to take them as guidelines.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Lalli was deliberately written as being socially and emotionally maladjusted due to his upbringing on top of possibly having a few neuralogical 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 have NoSocialSkills and be extremely prone to BrutalHonesty. The end result is that each time events leave him in bad enough mood for a legitimate 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}} being mean to whoever he's interacting with 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.

* Similar to the ''Yugioh Abridged'' situation above, ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' by Creator/TeamFourStar has attracted some fans who think that the show's jokes aimed at the story of the show are meant as legitimate criticisms or interpretations of the characters and story as to how they're supposed to be taken as, rather than just jokes at their expenses, as well as taking the flanderized personalities of these versions of the characters as canon, most notably Goku and Piccolo. While Goku's has apparently become canon as of ''Super'', which even fans of the Japanese version have said has become a bit much, Piccolo is another case, since he was Gohan's ''mentor'', not his adoptive father. Krillin has also become a punching bag for many, despite the guys themselves admitting that the reason they shat on him so much in the first 2 seasons was because Yamcha wasn't a part of the story during those arcs.
* Many detractors of WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter spout opinions about him that show that they have no idea what kind of reviewer he is. He's a more straight-forward reviewer and not another Nostalgia Critic, even though he's inspired by him, thus saying he's not funny enough, or that his anger isn't played for comedy, is entirely a moot point because that's not how he carries himself in his reviews. One review on IMdB even thought he was ''supposed'' to be this and his channel was just another web review show not meant to be taken seriously, and even said that he sounded legitimately angry, which he was, so thinking his reviews are meant to be like the Nostalgia Critic is not only missing the point entirely, but not even aiming for the right target.

** Yahtzee himself has said that he exaggerates the flaws for comedic value, and that he 'praises by exception'. Anything he doesn't mention is fine or at least average, while if he takes the time to mention something's good in the review, he thought it was really good. He's also admitted his prejudices and that what he likes or hates may be the opposite for other people. Above all he just wants people to think for themselves and demand better than 'average' from developers.

He's also gone on record in his earlier videos that "nobody likes him when he's not being mean" hence, the drive to sound angrier at games than he really is.

** The AVGN's character had another bit to him as well. He's also serves to remind us not to look at all the old gaming days with rose-tinted glasses. Most of the older really shitty games in the past are bad, but that's because it was all we really had to work with; clunky controls and all without much developmental thought. For every Mario, Mega Man, Sonic, and Zelda, there were equally bad games in those days as well.

* A common grievance for [[TheBestPageInTheUniverse Maddox]] as he attracts people he loathes. He even claims that his fan mail can be much dumber than his hate mail. There was also an incident where his fanclub hacked a website they don't like and while he said nothing of it, Maddox has stated that he hates hackers especially when they are script kiddies.
