* TheyChangedItNowItSucks - Sixth Edition. Dear god, Sixth Edition.Edition has seen a lot of this.



*** C:NM sucked so badly that Fuzion, the name of the system used, is now very much a derogatory term in the Hero System fandom.

* DorkAge - ''Champions New Millenium'' which featured a new system (that players hated) and updated the setting to a DarkerAndEdgier 1990s Image-style universe. That the artists from R. Talsorian Games felt like copying RobLiefeld art for their illustrations probably didn't help.

* RunningTheAsylum - A rare positive example; a number of the current writers used to be ''Champions'' players.
** A number of the NPC heroes that have appeared in the RPG were based on player characters; Dr Silverback was Hero Games/DOJ owner Darren Watt's PC, the Harbinger of Justice was writer/owner Steve Long's.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeLogic: According to the rules of the universe from 5E onward, superpowers and the kind of tech that only exists in comic book universes is only feasible if the amount of ambient magic in the universe is high enough to bend the rules of physics. If some cosmic event causes that amount to go down, then reality will start behaving realistically. Superpowers won't be possible and implausible technology will indeed be implausible. But immortals will stay immortal.

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname: [=FREd=] for Fifth Rules Edition, and 5er, pronounced fiver, for Fifth Edition Revised. [=FREd=] is a backronym; it was originally adopted by members of the discussion boards from a comment made by Steve Long the he "...didn't care if they called it [the fifth edition] Fred..." as long as they bought it. Thus it was affectionately dubbed Fred, and only later turned into an acronym.
** The fourth edition rulebook was commonly known as the [=BBB=], for Big Blue Book (the main color used in the cover art). A fan discussion that started when everyone realized that Big Black Book (the main color on the [=5E=] cover) would have the same initials is what led to [=FREd=].

** The previous change -- from 4th Edition to 5th Edition -- wasn't as extreme as the change from 5th to 6th Edition, but there are still 4th Edition purists out there who refuse to use the 5th Edition rules. Damage Shields, for example, became monstrously more expensive in 5th Edition.

Damage Shields, for example, became monstrously more expensive in 5th Edition.Edition, due to the need to buy the "Constant" advantage for nearly every power that the Damage Shield could use as a base.
