** 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.

* 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 and Todd would have been in jail, in mental homes or at least have a few restraining orders by now.

* 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.

*** Also ends up actually hurting the site, [[http://lindsayetumbls.tumblr.com/post/81104186736/do-you-agree-with-kyles-idea-that-tgwtg-is-a-dying as you can't change when your fans refuse to let you.]]
** 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.

** The [=BarFiesta=] intro, ''years'' before January 2015, had Michaud as a shadowy dark figure kidnapping Rob and dismissing Doug as a performer monkey.

* FandomRivalry: While a lot of people enjoy Doug being on ''WebVideo/AwesomeComics'' because he gets on well with all of them and everyone shares their opinions in a nice way, some complain on the comments that they'd rather he just be with Rob.

** Bhargav Dronamraju as [[CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Ma-Ti]], who first appeared as a cutaway joke in the Critic's review of ''Captain Planet'', and has since become a recurring character in his videos, and elsewhere.

* TrueArtIsAngsty: Inverted. While a lot of people really appreciate sadder, more mature episodes about job insecurities along with movies like WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee and projects like WebVideo/DemoReel or “Dark Side Of The Internet”, others get really angry and threatening towards them, with one such comment on Sage's emotional breakdown episode saying “your purpose in life is to review stuff for us!”

* BaseBreaker:
** Before she left in October 2014, WebVideo/JesuOtaku developed a reputation for being as caustic as The Distressed Watcher or Spoony - even more so when she openly stated the TGWTG fanbase was toxic and fans became upset at her lack of updates and thrashing of (among other things) Young Justice, The Legend of Korra, and RWBY, to the point where her main and YMMV pages on the site have had to be locked for a long while after she had fans vandalize her TVTropes page and joined Website/SomethingAwful's forums to mock RWBY and TVTropes some more. The Secret Treehouse has put a ban on any more fics featuring her in any way, shape or form.
** Despite being the main contributor to the site, Doug Walker himself has become a major base breaker for people. Many have felt that he TookALevelInJerkass due to DemoReel failing, reflected in the retooled Nostalgia Critic episodes, as both it and even some of his own AsHimself videos have shown him being more heavily opinionated, which has alienated many former fans of his. While he still does have a decent-sized fandom overall, he's gathered a noticeable hatedom as well, and merely bringing his name up on most sites outside Channel Awesome[[note]]Imdb and Gamefaqs being two noteworthy examples, among others[[/note]] is guaranteed to start arguments.
