* "Mad" [[TabletopGame/BattleTech Maximilian Liao]]. The man was canonically a legitimate Chessmaster in his younger years, may well have suffered from a medical condition explaining his decline if some of his descendants are any indication, and finally only ''really'' lost it at the very end of his career -- but the fandom will always remember him for his "grab the wedding plates, they're military intelligence!" moment in the ''[[BattleTechExpandedUniverse Warrior]]'' [[BattleTechExpandedUniverse trilogy]] and being notionally played for a fool at every turn by Hanse Davion & Co. during the disastrous (for House Liao) Fourth Succession War.

** During an unboxing video with his fiance [[WebVideo/VigaLovesComics Viga Gadson]], Lewis "[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]" Lovhaug recorded a three-hour video--without a microphone being on. In the 30 minute one that he uploaded that did have sound, it opens with Viga coming up with different ways to tell Lewis "Fuck you" for forgetting and the following videos have a running gag with letters telling Lewis to check the mic to see that it's on.

* In ''Fanfic/TheMLPLoops'', Applejack once tried to make cider out of potatoes. On consumption, Twilight went blind, Spike shot flames out of nose and ears, Zecora flat-out refused to try it, and Discord burst into fire (before announcing his approval). Apple Bloom eventually found a use for it - as a superb all-natural engine lubricant. Since then, references to the notorious brew keep popping up, much to her embarrassment.

* Captain Tagon, in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', gets this in-universe after he crashes into a table and winds up with a fork in his eye. For the rest of the ''Mallcop Command'' arc, his crew keep making fork jokes.
--> '''Captain Tagon:''' I bet I can live that down after I turn it to my advantage.

* The Website/ClosingLogoGroup, the Internet's authority on production logos and a museum of sorts in that regard, has yet to live down not just its past extreme fascination with scary logos but also its internal power struggles, to the point where even the proles have complained within its own forums and rules have been written to combat its image. In turn, thanks to some of those rules, there's a third thing for which outsiders are shaming it: for bordering on being a dictatorship, a favorite charge for detractors to bring up. Even their exposé on [[AcceptableTargets a quartet of YouTube trolls]] hasn't done as much as they had hoped to improve their image. It doesn't help that their self-proclaimed leader, Drayton Lumumba Chandell[[note]]who acquired the CLG in 2003 and was ousted in 2015[[/note]], ''still'' [[FlatEarthAtheist refuses to believe the Cokeburst, a byline variant of the Columbia Pictures Television "Sunburst" logo, is real despite evidence to the contrary]]. For that matter, ''anything'' the CLG staff had done in the name of finding old logos and preserving history has been overshadowed by two incidents which took place in 2015-2016: the Cokeburst Conundrum[[note]]the aforementioned denial of the Cokeburst's existence, which caused Chandell to be ousted in the first place along with a supporter of his whose unabashed racism was promptly exposed to everyone in the community[[/note]] and the increasingly hostile behavior of its CEO, who Chandell himself had handpicked, which culminated in an attempt to break from Wikifoundry [[DisproportionateRetribution over the numerous bugs the wiki farm had to endure]]. Another thing brought up by detractors is that they claim to be a "G-rated site", a carryover from their Yahoo! Groups days.

* Thanks to certain incidents and smear campaigns [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment which will not be talked about here]], you'd be forgiven for thinking the author of ''Pretty Cure Club Activities'' (elements of which are present in ''FanFic/ClubPrettyCure'') writes only ripoffs of other stories, includes racist stereotypes in all of them, [[StrawMisogynist thinks of femininity as a weakness]], speaks exclusively with NoIndoorVoice, is a LoonyFan of some celebrities, is a massive [[WholesomeCrossdresser "trap"]] fan, [[DudeNotFunny makes inappropriate jokes]], and/or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking is just plain crazy/emo]] (those {{Creator Breakdown}}s he suffers from time to time don't help, either). It's actually just one reason[[note]]the other significant reason being [[OldShame he doesn't consider his works quite as good as when he started work on them]], kind of like ''FanFic/PrettyCurePerfumePreppy''[[/note]] why he has thoroughly rebooted his Cureverse (in which all that will be toned down significantly, if not completely nonexistent, in the reboot, and even before the reboot much of the crap for which a bunch of other Curefic authors know him was hardly prevalent to begin with), and he's actually [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold more personable (if still somewhat]] [[KnightInSourArmor perpetually sour for the most part)]] [[MeanCharacterNiceActor in real life]], not to mention that the detractors who had accused him of such behavior happen to be social justice warriors (see the Reddit/Tumblr entry far below for more on that).

* In ''Roleplay/DeadlyMistakes'', Wilson randomly stated that he loved Madigan, the [[{{Lolicon}} twelve-year old girl]] that he's known since she was younger (supposedly nine). [[{{Squick}} Quite a few characters were disgusted by this]] and some of the roleplayers immediately asked his roleplayer as to why he did that. His roleplayer said that it was just a joke. [[DudeNotFunny A fair amount of the roleplayers were less than amused with hearing that.]] It's not mentioned as much now (possibly due to having [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters so many new characters start showing up]] for anyone to dwell on it for too long), but he still hasn't quite lived this moment down.

* Somewhat toeing the line between this and {{Flanderization}} is ''Roleplay/OpenBlue'''s [[TykeBomb Espartano]] unit. Originally, it was supposed to be of all ages and both genders, but due to the fact that one [=RPer=] kept on cranking out [[LittleMissBadass badass lolitas]], the idea that it is an AmazonBrigade has stuck to the other regulars. Consequently, this has resulted in one regular creating an entire ''[[TheSquad squad]]'' of them, as opposed to the usual single independent operatives. The line blurs between this and {{flanderization}} because each new character/group of characters added technically counts as canon unless declared otherwise.

* The Italian ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''-themed magazine ''Pokémon World''[[note]]Also known in later years as ''Pokémon Mania'', ''Pokémon Mag'' and ''Pika Mania''[[/note]] had its highs and lows, but everyone in the Italian Pokémon fandom remembers them mostly for that time when, because of a copypaste goof[[note]]Explanation: they were publishing a ''Ruby and Sapphire'' Pokédex in multiple parts in the magazine, and the last part was apparently done by copypasting the layout for the last issue and replacing the already existing text with new one: the Rayquaza box was published with the "where is found" part from the Luvdisc box from the issue before[[/note]], they said that Rayquaza is found by fishing in Evergrande City with a Super Rod.

* UsefulNotes/McDonalds is having a tough time living down its "I'd hit it" ad campaign. Apparently, whoever came up with it didn't know "hit" was a slang term for "to have sex with" until it was too late. It's now looked at as a learning experience for what ''not'' to do in sloganeering.

* In WebVideo/{{Numberphile}}, the infamous "Parker Square," Matt's rather terrible quasi-solution (reusing two numbers and with one diagonal wrong) to the problem of whether a magic square can be made of square numbers. Since then, it's been brought up whenever a flawed solution is mentioned, especially in Matt's videos.
