** Sailor Mercury has an unfortunate reputation for being a "weak" Sailor Senshi because of first season attack, Bubble Spray. Because its purpose was creating a fog out of bubbles, many fans joke about it being useless despite it being BoringButPractical. It reduced enemy visibility, allowing another Senshi to attack while the enemy was blinded. Despite getting more offensive abilities in later seasons that were on par with her teammates, many fans still view Sailor Mercury as the one with [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway lame powers]].

** A couple older strips had jokes involving Canada being unnoticeable, with only one of them making him explicitly invisible. He does not bring this up that much. In his vast majority of appearances, everyone sees him just fine, even if they occasionally think he is America (and even that only seems to really bother him when he gets beat up because of it). Recent strips, in fact, show him as being popular even; in [[Manga/{{Hetaween 2011}} the 2011 Halloween event]] all the other nations saw and recognized him just fine and ''cheered'' for him. Yet fandom ''still'' portrays Canada as the poor little nation nobody ever sees or even remembers the existence of, he is always wbhining and angsting about that (often to [[{{Wangst}} super-emo extents]]), and it's sometimes mixed with different degrees of [[RonTheDeathEater America bashing]].

*** Not to mention how a good portion of the fanbase either forgets or [[DracoInLeatherPants romanticizes]] the fact that he's physically assaulted children half his age - one of these times, it was [[spoiler: a teenage girl even shorter than Levi who'd just recently shared her abuse-filled past.]]

* ''Manga/DeathNote''s Light Yagami spends the vast majority of his time portraying a near-flawless modest front over a cold, calculating and, above all, ''rational'' interior. However, he's usually remembered for his two {{Evil Laugh}}s, his [[EvilGloating near-sexual pleasure in victory]], and [[MundaneMadeAwesome his abiding love of potato chips]].

*** Also, according to fandom [[MurderTheHypotenuse "Obstacles are for KILLING!"]]. There were only TWO times when she either ''seriously'' said so in front Ranma and/or Akane (her first story, when she grumbles this "excuse" when Ranma begs her not to attack Akane, and during the Phoenix People story, when she actually was under MoreThanMindControl and was ordered to kill Ranma) or thought so (when Taro kidnapped Akane, Shampoo quite obviously intended to kill her and lay the blame on Taro, although she never actually voiced the plan, and she fell victim to a cold water trap that the GenreSavvy Taro set to keep anyone to approach Akane). The others involved more the [[HonorBeforeReason "I'm an Amazon and you're my love rival, so it can't be helped!"]] gig than trying to murder Akane bloodily [[ForTheEvulz just for shits and giggles]] or to cruelly and venomously spite Ranma for not choosing her.

** The fandom also tends to exaggerate Hinata's fainting spells despite the fact that she only fainted twice in the manga, (once while going into the hospital and seeing him injured, and once while he unexpectedly walks up on her when she hasn't seen him in almost three years). It doesn't help that she is [[CharacterExaggeration more prone to fainting in the anime]].

* The title character of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has a tendency to take DefeatMeansFriendship to [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill ridiculous levels of excess]], and many fans act as if she's truly [[BloodKnight looking for excuses to blow people up]]. However, the reason she's so quick to attack is because [[StunGuns her weapons are incapable of killing people]].

* ''Manga/{{Inuyasha}}'': [[DarkMagicalGirl Kikyo]] gets ''massive'' amounts of hate for her initially vengeful behavior [[CameBackWrong after she was resurrected against her will]], the most infamous example being when she tried to drag Inuyasha, whom she believed betrayed her shortly before she died, to hell with her. The aforementioned vengeful behavior occurred ''very'' early in the series, Kikyo only tried to drag Inuyasha to hell ''one single time'', and she lets go of her misplaced anger towards him after discovering [[BigBad Naraku]] was behind the "betrayal" and considerably mellows out over the course of the series. But tell that to the fans who insist Kikyo is nothing but "[[RonTheDeathEater that claypot bitch]] [[DieForOurShip who tries to steal Inuyasha from Kagome]]."
