* MisaimedFandom: The audience at large just doesn't seem to get the intentionally pathetic characters screaming at movies aren't something to emulate. Doug (with the entirety of WebVideo/DemoReel, the "When Is A Movie Just A Movie" editorial and [[http://blip.tv/nostalgiacritic/adventure-time-vlogs-the-ice-king-s-glasses-issue-6741587 "The Ice King's Glasses"]]) and Kyle (with videos like ''{{Melancholia}}'' and ''VaseDeNoces'') have gone even further trying to get this into heads, but comments of "yeah this raped my childhood too" (or defensive "you're offending me by trying to AppealToWorseProblems!" in regards to Doug/Kyle) still prevail. If anything, characters like Spoony, Critic, Chick, Todd, and Jerk would have been in jail, in mental homes or at least have a few restraining orders by now.

** ''Film/ManOfSteel'' divided the team heavily- Hope, Doug, Rob, Brad and Mathew mentioned that they hated it (though Mathew does admit it has some great moments), whilst Joe and Bennett liked it, and [=ERod=] initially thought it was average (later, [=ERod=] changed his opinion and declared that he has moved to the hatebase of the movie). Hope's hatred was so intense, Bennett asked if she was just transferring her hatred of ''Sucker Punch''.

* TheWoobie: Melvin, Brother of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. Unlike Doug's other woobie characters though, he wasn't OTT enough to be funny as well.

* AcceptableTargets: Tommy Wiseau has become this after pulling two reviews of ''Film/TheRoom'' off the site.
** [[CargoShip Objectophiles]]. Usually it's just Nash, but at 54 minute mark it spills over [[http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10581706 into this livestream]] with Jew Wario, Paw, and PushingUpRoses as well.

** In a fanfic livestream “Day Of The Fanfic”, Brad gave an affectionate nod to all the BDSM punishment fics Critic had post-''{{Kickassia}}'', teasing that he (Critic) had been a naughty boy. In WebVideo/TheLastAngryGeek's 2014 ''Future's End'' BadFuture review, Critic is Snob's SexSlave.

* HypocriticalFandom: There's an irritating tendency amongst mostly female fans to call the first "Spooning With Spoony" sick and twisted, but love the following episodes for their HoYay and shirtless guys.

** They complain about adverts and even DVD features are uploaded on youtube, but when Doug does daily vlogs because he's hurting for a money, he's “a cash-grabbing whore”.

** They trashed Lindsay for Chick's storyline-abuse of Nella so badly that she had to do a “Thanks For The Feedback” explaining that Nella had actually wrote a lot of that herself, and yet Critic's abuse of Rachel, Malcolm and Tamara (when in WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee he says he didn't want to hurt anyone else) gets cheered on to the point where he has to point out that you're meant to be rooting for them, not him.
* InternetBackdraft: A joke by Linkara in the ''{{Superman}} IV: The Quest for Peace'' review with the Nostalgia Critic got him a lot of heat because he simply mentioned Israel. This led to tons of hatemail accusing him of supporting/hating Israel. He addressed this in the commentary for the video, in which he reminded the readers that he never said anything about Israel except that they probably wouldn't be happy about a guy stealing their nukes, where the film shows everyone on earth unanimously cheering that Superman is going to take away everyone's nukes.

* {{Misblamed}}: Aside from Scarlett, Holly Brown and especially Lupa being treated like scapegoats for the situation (until [[http://spoonyexperiment.com/2012/09/15/to-boldly-flee-part-1-spoony-commentary/ Spoony himself]] [[http://www.twitlonger.com/show/i6dop4 stated]] that [[HateDumb she did not]] [[MisBlamed get him fired]]), Doug also got a fair amount of abuse for Spoony being let go. This is despite the fact that he has nothing to do with the management of the site (that's all Holly, Rob and Mike, he's just another entertainer) and was actually on his honeymoon when the shit went down.

* PortmanteauCoupleName: Despite the rampant amount of shipping in the fandom, there are relatively few of these. A few that do seem to stick, however, are Spoonkara ([[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] / [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]), Padd (PawDugan[=/=]ToddInTheShadows) and Topa (ToddInTheShadows[=/=][[ObscurusLupaPresents Lupa]]). Inskara ([[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Dr. Insano]] / [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]) is also quite popular.
