* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' has this with Rosemary. A certain Codec call topped off with an argument with her emotionally distant boyfriend launched her status as one of [[TheScrappy The Scrappies]] of the series, with plenty of DieForOurShip sentiments on the side and even causing some people to virtually ignore her in "Guns of the Patriots."
** Otacon [[BringMyBrownPants pisses himself]] when being attacked by an insane BloodKnight [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Undead Cyborg Ninja]] who had just murdered a corridor full of armed soldiers and was [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique trying to squeeze some information from Otacon that he genuinely didn't know]]. Fandom (and Snake in an [=MGS2=] Codec call) is mocking him for this to this day. Particularly weird when ''three'' other characters piss themselves in the series (Emma, Sokolov, and even Big Boss), without the reputation for incontinence sticking; then again, two of the three are dead before their game ends ([[spoiler:although Sokolov is revealed to be alive in ''Portable Ops'']]), and the third is [[MemeticBadass goddamn Big Boss]] (who it must be noted, pissed himself because he was undergoing ElectricTorture, not out of simple fear).

* Microsoft's {{Xbox 360}} seems to be sorely known for the Red Rings of Death, which show up on the power's lights when the console experiences a hardware failure. The red rings plagued a ton of consoles and caused Microsoft to lose a ton of money from recalling the product, fixing the current consoles that had the problem, making a new console design to stop the problem, and offering people an extended warranty.

** The Mushroom Kingdom in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' when Bowser becomes a greater threat than before. They still feared him when he was more of a nuisance than a threat following ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', but even Mario fails to realize he'd be that much of a menace to them all, causing unintended CharacterDerailment to the Mushroom Kingdom. Worse, in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', they have no idea that Bowser would crave Stars for his plots and they have ''another'' Star Festival, and Bowser show up giant and even ''more'' threatening! It may be a video game and WordOfGod says they are eschewing stories in these game, but the Mushroom Kingdom not knowing anything or trying to do anything is too much, and they might be better off with a brand new villain. Finding a way to prevent Bowser from being a threat is now a matter of life and death and the best way they'll survive, as it's not the old days of the Mario franchise.

* Creator/GunpeiYokoi for a number of years was mainly known for the Virtual Boy and his tragic death, although he started being remembered for his positive legacy, such as ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' and creating the Game & Watch and GameBoy, and for coming up with the idea for Nintendo to adopt the policy of "Lateral thinking with withered technology" (i.e. "do news things with old tech").

** Hoenn, the region in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes, is bashed solely for having [[MemeticMutation "too much water"]] in the last portion of the games, as if only 10% percent of the region was land.

** Hoenn, the region in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes, is bashed solely gets a lot of crap for having [[MemeticMutation "too much water"]] in the last portion of the games, as if only 10% percent games. While there ''is'' a lot of water that you have to surf across, one would assume that the region was land.only 10% land given how much people complain about it.
*** Then of course, there's the trumpety soundtrack.

** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'' is unable to get away from the fact that it has the much loathed gameplay of ''Sticker Star''. It fixes most of the problems that ''Sticker Star'' had and has won people over (many of whom hated ''Sticker Star'') but a lot of ''Paper Mario'' fans (including fans of the first two games) just want the series to go back to the gameplay of the first two games.

** ''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash'' is unable to get away from the fact that it has the much loathed gameplay of ''Sticker Star''. It fixes most of the problems that ''Sticker Star'' had and has won several people over (many of whom hated ''Sticker Star'') but a lot of ''Paper Mario'' fans (mostly fans of the first two games that may or may not have a NostalgiaFilter in place) just want the series to go back to the gameplay of the first two games.

** The Mushroom Kingdom when Bowser became a greater threat than before in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy''. It's bad enough that they still considered him a threat even without realizing he was more of a nuisance than a threat since Paper Mario, but this made it clear that they have to do something to prevent him from being a threat despite the necessity of a game. Worse still, in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2'', they have no idea Bowser craves Stars for his plots and have a Star Festival AGAIN! Then Bowser shows up [[LargeHam "HUUUUUUUUUGGGGE!!"]], and even GREATER threat. Despite how good the game is, this is TOO MUCH! And it cemented the Mushroom Kingdom's status as a bunch of lazy dipshits who wouldn't even try to prevent that kind of menace from happening. Preventing Bowser from being a threat is a necessity now, not because it's easy (it's not), but [[SeriousBusiness it's a matter of life and death and a necessity for survival.]] And if a threat the level of Bowser in the Galaxy games can be prevented, especially due to other recent less-than-stellar [[EvilPlan evil plans]] and Bowser's hypocritical behavior being an occasional ally of his foes, they should try figuring that out and create a new villain that can NEVER be prevented from being a threat to the Kingdom and doesn't have a VillainousCrush on Princess Peach and instead kidnaps her to keep his evil magic intact and generally ForTheEvulz (things that made Bowser a better villain in the past) or people will get tired of playing a video games supporting such lazy dipshits.

** Vector the Crocodile, who will always be best remembered for four infamous words he shouted in ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'': "FIND THE COMPUTER ROOM!"



** Furthermore, Oak is infamous for his words echoing whenever the player character tries to ride a bike indoors.



** After doing it [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire three]] [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl generations]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite in a row]], it's unlikely Game Freak will ever be able to introduce a new generation without comments that the Fire starter better not evolve into Fire/Fighting, despite them breaking this trend in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' with Fire/Psychic. The Fire starter in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' seems to play with expectations, it's a large, buff tiger, with a wrestling motif, when it was leaked it everyone was lamenting the return to Fire/Fighting, but it turned out to be Fire/Dark, it wasn't just a wrestler, it was a Heel.

Of the Fire/Fighting starters themselves, it's Emboar, the last of the three, who takes all the heat (no pun intended), while Blaziken and Infernape tend to be cut some slack.

** Yungoos and its evolution Gumshoos, the Ratatta-esque line of ''Sun and Moon'', will forever be known as the Pokémon who look like UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump.
