** This is normally a very fringe fan as most fans of either Franchise see the other as just as good as the other, given cultural differences between the two intended audiences (on both sides of the Pacific, the opposite number series is seen as more mature for different reasons). It helps that a bad season of PowerRangers might find a very well received season in SuperSentai and vice versa. Among this crowd, the debate follows the line that of should PowerRangers remain faithful to the SuperSentai counterpart or should they tell their own story. There are plenty of examples of PowerRangers to support one side over the other. As of UchuuSentaiKyuranger, writers for both series are working closer to create elements that can be marketed in both markets.

* For the ''Zelda'' fandom, what make a 'true' Zelda game? Is it the exploration? Is it the puzzles? Is it the dungeons? Is it the combat? Is it the story and characters. Every new entry to the ''Zelda'' series raises these debates with essays going in all directions and people questioning the fandom of others. That is not even getting into the whole 'what is the best Zelda game?'. Saying ''Ocarina of Time'' or ''Link to the Past'' will have people calling them overrated games that have long been surpassed and citing anything beside fan-favorites like ''Majora's Mask'' and ''Wind Walker'' will have fans screaming at you why you're wrong. God forbid if you like all the games for different reasons.

** And the aged old question, is ''Super Smash Brothers'' a 'real' fighting game? This has lessened over the years as ''Super Smash Brothers'' has become more accepted at fighting tournament, but the debate still comes up and it can go south fast.

* In the anime world, SubbingVersusDubbing. Those who love subs will say that any dub is ''always'' inferior to seeing an anime in its original, pure form and call those who watch dubs are not being true fans. Those who watch dubs will say those who watch subs are otaku and ask how can they form a deep emotional connection with the story and characters if they don't understand what the characters are saying and have to read text at the bottom of the screen. This argument becomes ridiculous when you consider that most modern anime [=DVDs=] offer both subs and dubs. Let's not [[SpellMyNameWithAnS even get started on the spellings]].
* Another branch of the anime FlameWar, manga vs. its anime adaptation. Those who love the manga will slam any and all changes the anime makes, despise any type of {{Filler}}, and will say that the anime is always inferior to the original work no matter how critically acclaimed and beloved it is. If you're a fan of the anime, don't try to discuss plot points or characterizations because anything from the anime will be thrown out as not canon and doesn't count. Only older anime like ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' and ''Manga/DragonBall'' get a pass.
** This is in spite of the fact that, in some cases, parts of the filler will have been suggested by the manga's author, such as Yamcha playing baseball in ''Dragon Ball Z'' filler.

* To sushi purists, what is "sushi" is typically very strict (though it varies from person to person). The most common requirement is that it has to contain only ingredients that are also widely or traditionally available in Japan, meaning the California Roll, which almost everybody else would consider sushi, is not sushi to these people due to its presence of avocado.

* {{Cosplay}} while for the most part people are chill, there are many obsessed with getting the craft done just right to varying degress. And sometimes doing what is perceived as a bad cosplay can get you anywhere from slight mockery to [[DisproportionateRetribution brutal harassment]]. Naturally many in the cosplay community have let out cries of StopBeingStereotypical for the latter and how it's no better than an AlphaBitch beauty pageant contestant.

* Mention Israel on the Internet. Or in any political discussion regardless of topic. [[SchmuckBait Come on. Do it.]] For the small territory involved and the low body count (compared to other conflicts) the ArabIsraeliConflict really is an insane source for FlameBait and SeriousBusiness.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' [[GameMod modding]] scene, some [[StopHavingFunGuys people]] treat lore accuracy in mods as this. If they encounter a mod that does not fit into the style of the gameworld and established lore, like for example anime or Star Wars based mods, they will surely post a comment to let everyone know how this mod is complete trash and an offense to the entire Elder Scrolls franchise. Instead of, you know, simply choosing not to use the mod and moving on to mods they do like.

* In multiple European countries, driving with automatic transmission, rather than manually, is still associated with laziness or a lack of driving skills. Advocates of manual driving sometimes even go as far as to say that driving manually is the only "true" way of driving, with automatic transmission being a pale imitation thereof.

** While coffee itself was consumed first in Ethiopia and Yemen and spread slowly but surely, the ''coffee plants'' themselves were grown only in those two areas, as the Ethiopian and Yemeni royalty closely guarded their gardens so they could sell them at a huge markup to the Europeans and east Asians. It would take over 200 years from when coffee became a staple drink of Yemen to when Dutch merchant Pieter van der Broecke broke into one of these gardens and successfully made off with some beans--everyone before him died trying. Gabriel de Clieu managed to take some of those Dutch seeds and brought them to the Caribbean, but his ship was almost destroyed in a storm along the way. These beans would make their way down to French Guyana, where Francisco de Melo Palheta, a Portuguese traveler hired by his king, wooed the governor's wife solely so he could talk her into giving him some seeds and shoots. Basically, coffee is widely available nowadays because a series of people risked life and limb so their countries could grow their own coffee.
