* As part of a month-long theme centered around ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'', Cyndi (formerly Robert) Seidelman of ''Website/GameShowGarbage'' inducted "[[HePannedItNowHeSucks Those Golden Fanbois Who Live Down The Road On The Internet]]" as a huge TakeThat towards Golden-Road.net's fan base. This cemented Seidelman's reputation as a FanHater, and it got her into so much trouble in the game show community that he had to tone down the review the very next day. She still has a hard time living this down, going as far as [[OldShame removing the induction from the site]] in September 2017.

* Continuing ''Rooster Teeth'' shows, ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' will probably never get over a lot of relics from Volume One which keep coming up in the show's general identity but have never been repeated, such as cookies being Ruby's TrademarkFavouriteFood (something shown in the first episode with her scoffing a plate of them and which never comes up again except for a FreezeFrameBonus in Ep. 11), Weiss calling Ruby a dolt (something she has only ever done once in the whole show but fans practically consider her {{Catchphrase}}), Yang making puns (which is just an allusion to her voice actor), and Nora being a PlayedForLaughs MemeticPsychopath (because '''once''' in the '''entire run of the show''' she suggested breaking a guy's legs because he was bullying Jaune).

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': It seems that some people seem to have taken the ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve element of Orky technology to mean that '''ALL''' of it runs simply because the Orks believe it does. No, a stick will ''not'' fire bullets if you convince an Ork that it can, goddamnit (though a pipe would, as far as the second edition rules are concerned, which was 5 editions ago and counting)! Being hit with a severe case of DependingOnTheWriter makes it even worse. (One source will say Ork tech works fine and the gestalt psychic field only makes it work better; meanwhile, another source will have an Ork fly a ship across a star system despite it lacking any fuel.)
** The Imperial Guard will never escape their reputation as a RedShirtArmy who easily fall to any other force. Granted, that's mostly how they were depicted in the early editions, but later editions solidified their nature as a BadassArmy fully capable of holding their own.
** This can happen to writers too. Matt Ward was already unpopular but not necessarily loathed for being an Ultramarines fanboy who "hijacked the Space Marines codex to turn it into a 95% Ultramarines book" (the decision was more likely made [[ExecutiveMeddling from the opposite direction]] after it was too late for Ward to change anything). While a bad move, fans already accepted the overuse of Ultramarines as poster-boys and moved on. Then Matt made the Grey Knights codex, possibly the single most broken and overpowered army list yet conceived. Fan hatred of the codex was so far that members of the 4chan /tg/ board made lists of non-Grey Knights models that could be used to fashion a GK army without buying their specific models; all of this was based on the logic that Games Workshop would look at the sales of GK product to judge Ward's performance.
*** Sisters of Battle fans will likely never forgiving for having the GK massacre a convent and get of scot-free.
*** Another sore contention is Ward's complete overhaul of the Necron's lore. While received well by ''some'' players, many 'Cron fans believe that [[BadassDecay the army has gone from being]] [[NightmareFuel terrifying]] EldritchAbomination worshipping killbots, to a comparatively lame mix between the [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}} Tomb Kings]] and a cheesy Series/DoctorWho villain, and their star-eating gods have turned in Pokemon. Ironically, Ward is rather well-liked by [[OurElvesAreBetter Eldar]] players, because, while a horrid writer he may be, he's the only one who doesn't constantly submit the Eldar to [[ButtMonkey humiliating]] {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s; in one of his stories, Craftworld Biel-tan successfully fights off ''two'' Imperial sector fleets and '''''TEN''''' Space Marine chapters by itself, although this ''is'' [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Biel-tan]] we're talking about, so...
** Similar to Ward, Robin Cruddace will also never live down the "horrible atrocity" that was the 5th edition Tyranid Codex. Even the codex itself is only remembered for two things; Introducing the nigh-useless Pyrovore and nerfing the beloved Carnifex to hell to make the newer Monstrous Creatures useful. This carried on even when the Tyranids got an update for 6th edition and the further nerfs it received had people burning Cruddace at the stake despite his name being nowhere on the book. [[note]]GW had, at this point, stopped naming individual authors on their books and instead just crediting the whole team as a result, as anything with Ward's name on it will instantly be decried as a defilement of fluff/broken-ass shit/Ultramarine Fanboyism/any combination thereof. The fact that the Tyranid codex got nerfed when they decided to do this pointed EVERYONE in Cruddace's direction.[[/note]]
* Many ''MagicTheGathering'' sets suffer from this.
** Legends for the vanilla legends, but it's still known as a good set, despite them.
** The Dark for Sorrow's Path, considered the worst card in Magic (at least, that isn't an [[JunkRare outright joke]]).
** Fallen Empires may have given us Hymn to Tourach, but it also gave us the ability to pay life to put a creature in play to put counters on that we could sacrifice to gain life equal to the number of counters. Guess which one got remembered more.
** Homelands for, well, everything.
** Mercadian Masques for the [[PowerCreepPowerSeep Power Seep]].
** Kamigawa for the awkward "splice onto arcane" mechanic.
* Despite RuleZero technically protecting any given RPG from one bad rule ruining the bunch, splatbooks can have 200+ of great material and only be remembered for one bad rule or feature. It can get even worse if the feature isn't itself bad, but synergizes with another book's rules to create something unintended.
** For example, ''Frostburn'' is a very well done feature book on cold weather terrain and characters in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. At this point it will seemingly only be remembered for providing two minor feats that contribute to making the Locate City Bomb.
* "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 ''[[Franchise/BattleTechExpandedUniverse Warrior]]'' [[Franchise/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.
** The Lyran Commonwealth will always be remembered for their [[GeneralFailure ''Social Generals'']], who got their rank through money and connections than by experience. While the Lyrans have several formidable Mech Warriors and even the merger of the Federated Commonwealth gain them some reasonable commanders, the Lyrans are mostly known for simply sending Heavy and Assault mechs as their primary tactic.
* Helm of the ''ForgottenRealms'' doesn't seem to ever be able to live down his moments of LawfulStupid, like killing the first Mystara. It's gotten to the point he and his followers still get called LawfulStupid InUniverse.
** In-universe, he also gets a lot of flak from the fact that it was a group of his worshippers who found Maztica (a FantasyCounterpartCulture of the {{Mayincatec}} flavor)... and promptly turned into Conquistador-expies. See the WhatTheHellHero entry on the ForgottenRealms page.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Shortpacked}}'': Happens to Robin in-universe. She's a decorated war hero, and served two terms as her district's congresswoman, having ran actively for a third term, and having been key an a great deal of landmark legislation, including one bill that resulted in a month of world peace. All people remember her from is that one sex tape.
* Monette in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' has since been adopted by the [=MacIntyres=] and become a successful actress. But, despite now being in a committed lesbian relationship, she'll be remembered as the most man-loving lesbian ''ever''...who'd rather [[BestialityIsDepraved do animals than women]].
* Webcomic/CtrlAltDel's {{Hatedom}} used to have a lot of reasons to hate CAD. All of them have since been replaced by the [[ConvenientMiscarriage miscarriage arc.]]
** The comic has had several other NeverLiveItDown moments (Abbygate, "black" Zeke, "don't fuck with us", Lucas' date with Kate), but chances are that the miscarriage is the one that even people who don't read webcomics will know about.
** Of the Miscarriage arc is the strip titled "Loss". The culmination of the dubious art, DullSurprise, and bad scene blocking has made this particular strip outshine the popularity of the entire comic all together. The memetic nature of Loss will always be held as a testament against the comic.
* In ''Webcomic/SidekickGirl'', Illumina has a reputation for being [[CartwrightCurse a death magnet]] to her sidekicks (Part of the reason [[FromASingleCell immortal]] Val was assigned to her). Only one, Val's immediate predecessor, actually died. Of her other long-term sidekicks, one quit on her in the middle of a fight and the other went insane from the stress of being [[NotGrowingUpSucks an eternal twelve-year-old.]]
* ''Webcomic/HeadTrip'' [[http://headtripcomics.comicgenesis.com/d/20080118.html has]] this invoked.
* ''Webcomic/BugMartini'' provides us with [[http://www.bugcomic.com/comics/tv-me/ this example]].
* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' has an in-universe example with Abraham's creation of the Dewitchery Diamond. [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=993 Every properly trained wizard has heard of him]].
* A somewhat meta-example in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': In one page the readers didn't recognize Eglamore, so whenever he now appears, Tom will ''always'' point out to them that it's Eglamore.
** He lampshaded this at one point by pointing out that "the girl next to Eglamore is Antimony Carver, the hero this strip".
* In-world example: One fan-based ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' comic included a troll with a nickname he absolutely despised. It was just the one time on a dare, but nobody ever lets it go. They just keep calling him [[EatsBabies Baby-Eater]].
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'' has this in-universe for Jessica and Tess to the rest of the school ([[spoiler:Jessica is not actually a slut, and Tess regrets the bullying she did]]).
* The rather... tactless way [[spoiler: Melna's Rape]] was handled in ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan'' is still the single most pointed out problem with the strip the Hatedom brings up- To the point that even years later, that comic is still the most linked to page of the comic's entire run according to one Snarker's google search.
* InUniverse within ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Nobody will let Karkat forget the shipping chart.
** Meanwhile, the fandom will probably never let John live down his [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday "I'm not a homosexual"]] comment. Try to find ''one'' slash fic involving John where he ''doesn't'' say that or bring it up.
* Another InUniverse example occurs in ''WebComic/WhiteDarkLife''. Quite a few of them, actually, most involving [[AuthorAvatar Luigi]][[NoSocialSkills fan]]:
** A downplayed example is Tails' "[[LooseLips You just told me, foxboy!]]" incident from ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''.
** Luigifan had a lot of trouble living down the time he nearly killed Tulip with his Yveltal. The incident made it onto [[Quotes/DidntThinkThisThrough the Quotes page for "Didn't Think This Through"]] '''for a damn good reason.'''
** Luigifan will never, ''ever'' live down the time he accidentally hit Uma in the face with a glass bottle and knocked her unconscious. Even worse, the contents -- he ''tried'' to make a LovePotion using assorted pheromones. What he ''actually'' made, due to not being all that much of a chemist, is a stinkbomb.
** Another from Luigifan is claiming that Princess Torch would make "beautiful firebird babies" with Inu. (He was actually expressing relief that Torch wasn't saying something outlandish about Inu, with the example being that they would "make beautiful firebird babies", but everyone around him reacted... poorly. Torch absolutely ''hates'' it when the incident is brought up.)
** Speaking of Torch, she'll likely never live down her repeated glomping of Inu, including when she [[AndCallHimGeorge nearly crushed him to death]] on their first meeting and the extended cuddle session that prompted the aforementioned "beautiful firebird babies" remark.
* 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.

[[folder:Fan Fic]]
* Kalash93, despite his long history of serious stories and war dramas, will always be best known for Hot Button Beach Day.
* [[Webcomic/HiImDaisy HELICOPTER CRASH]] KILLS 25 HOSTAGES (...And a dude who slept with his '''stepmom'''!)
* If you're feeling unkind, fanfiction in general is this trope, since SturgeonsLaw dictates that the bulk of fans even inclined to write fanfiction at all are abominably terrible writers.
* Sergeant Sprinkles will forever be known as the guy who wrote the ''very'' [[{{gorn}} gorny]] WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fan fic known as ''FanFic/{{Cupcakes}}''. While he does appreciate the fanart and attention it gets, he'd rather you read some of his other work and didn't think of him as "That cupcakes guy".
* Thanks to [[{{anvilicious}} ham-handed]] writing, Blaze - the author of Fanfic/TheConversionBureau - is widely seen as an [[MisanthropeSupreme absolute misanthrope]].
** Likewise, the misanthropy-laced first chapter is widely mistaken as being emblematic of the fic (and the entire 'verse) as a whole.
* In ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' story "Falling for a Fell", Crimson Fell wonders if she will always be known for killing an Original. She does think it's a pretty cool thing to be known for, though
* In ''FanFic/AvatarOfVictory'', Asha's family is considered jinxed since one of her ancestors, who was actually a decent commander, got the last Avatar killed in action.
* In ''FanFic/TheBoyWithTheMagicNotebook'', Lily tends to remind Maxwell about his prankster days when he first got the Notebook as a way to keep him humble.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6035532/6/Souls-Abound Souls Abound]]'', Crappy the goblin bitterly mused to himself that "shit yourself just once in class and that's all anybody would ever remember about you."
* The ''Touhou Project/Pokemon'' crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8862808/1/Monsters-In-Paradise Monsters In Paradise]]'' has, all of people, Yukari Yakumo. Rustboro City's local librarian and her family take every chance to remind the youkai that she caused a swathe of destruction between Mauville and Rustboro while learning to ride a bicycle.
-->'''Yukari:''' Honestly. You take one bike ride, and suddenly you're a pariah. I ''knew'' I should've flown.
* 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]].
* Another Curefic author, Midoriri, will never hear the end of how she [[GenreKiller effectively torpedoed the "afterschool activities" thematic for Curefics]] with her aggressively litigious behavior towards other authors, including (but not limited to) the one mentioned above, accusing them of knocking off ''FanFic/PrettyCureBukatsudoEnergetic'' whether or not the accusations are true.
* In RoseOfPollux's fics, Jamie has on occasion reminded the Doctor that he had forgotten what Jamie looked like [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber during one of their early adventures]].
* 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.

** 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.
