**In [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-fans-get-so-defensive-over-anime/ 5 Things Casual Viewers Will Never Get About Anime]], they list [[VideoGame/SenranKagura Senran Kagura]] as being designed to "sell the tie-in fighting game to American kids", ignoring the fact that the video game came out long before the anime, and that the game is as far from child friendly as you can get. (The screenshot that Cracked used even had the big "mature" rating right on the box!)

** The ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' section of [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-ridiculous-excuses-sexy-video-game-costumes/ 6 Ridiculous Excuses Game Designers Gave For Sexist Costumes]] seems to have been written by someone who didn't actually play the game. It starts off by claiming that "the only acceptable clothes are fetish outfits, swimwear, and giant robotic battle suits", which is untrue[[note]]there ''are'' some skimpy sets of gear, but it's all optional and only makes up a small portion of the armor available[[/note]], then implies that Lin's default outfit is a bikini, when in actuality her costume is [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lin_3.png entirely conservative and practical]] and she only appears in a swimsuit if the player puts her in one [[note]]in fact, the pictures used in the article are screencaps of her wearing the game's most revealing outfit for the express purpose of demonstrating how the western release changed her character model[[/note]]. It also claims that the western version raised her age to 15, when she's actually 13 in both the localization and the original Japanese. In general, the article makes out like "this game is marketed on fetishes, including catgirls, amazons, schoolgirls, and nurses-wearing-one-medical-eyepatch" when in reality there's very little sexual content.

** Some writers appear to really hate ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', as it has frequently been brought up in a negative context, something the readers have not appreciated.

** 'Chad', who keeps showing up in articles as the hypothetical officer worker who continually slacks off, eats food that isn't his and generally gets on everyone's nerves.

** Luke [=McKinney=] and especially J. F. Sargent for their polarizing social justice articles, leading to frequent accusations of {{White Knight}}ing. Sargent also gets hate for his occasional lapses in research and frequent use of his columns to vent his contemptuous opinion of stuff he doesn't like: {{Contested Sequel}}s, ThisVeryWiki, and [[FanHater all of their fans]]. Meanwhile, [=McKinney=] is often seen as trying way too hard to make obscure female superheroes look cool. Even some non-radical feminists think he's a bit of a tool, due to his contributions to feminism amounting to little more than reading comics and watching movies. Nonetheless, they have their fans, due to their bitingly sarcastic sense of humor and willingness to direct it at segments of the fandom many consider AcceptableTargets.

** Chris Bucholz and Felix Clay, for being consistently comedy-oriented even as the site underwent CerebusSyndrome. Clay overlaps with MemeticBadass because he's proven to be willing to do a wide range of things (rarely pleasant) to write his articles.

*** The flames rekindled in late February 2016, when Cracked staff announced that the older "traditional" photoplasties were losing views, and fast, prompting the staff to start thinking about retiring "traditionals" entirely and just run "true fact" ones.
