Anger Fuel (or Frustration Fuel)

Scenes that make you mad

Name Space:
Page Type:
Often times writers will have a scene that completely pisses you off, often times just for the fun of it. The cause can be a like the Cloud Cuckoo Lander, a Jerk Ass, or an Alpha Bitch. Another thing that can cause this is the Belligerent Sexual Tension between two characters who are too stubborn to admit they like each other. When it comes to Video Games the frustration can be from Those Godamn Bats.


  • Any scene that involves Team Rocket in the original Anime/Pokemon series, they've gotten better over the years, thanks to them taking a level in badass

    Sorry if it seems like I'm focusing on the frustrating character in the description.

    This would be only bashing and complaining. I say no.
  • March 11, 2013
    If it is allowed, it would be an Audience Reactions/YMMV trope, and couldn't be listed on a work's page.

    The Scrappy we already have this.
  • March 11, 2013
    ^That's a character generally hated by fans of its work. This doesn't just apply to characters.
  • March 11, 2013
    @TrueShadow1: It is.
  • March 11, 2013
    So it's like complaining about unlikeable characters or things that you don't like? Sounds like The Scrappy.

    To me, this is about the producers of a show introducing and nurturing a character who is going to arouse a strong reaction among viewers, who will be furious about what this person seemingly gets away with (with impunity) but who will carry on watching in the hope this person gets their well-deserved come-uppance. Long-running dramas or soap operas are prone to this sort of person - witness J.R.Ewing in Dallas

    British TV soap opera examples:- Coronation Street - Kirsty, on the outside a well-loved and liked girl and good mother in the face of outrageous provocation. In reality: a shrewish, manipulative, lying, Psycho Bitch who beats up her long-suffering husband. Her lies are on the point of putting him in prison. Emmerdale - Cain Dingle. The Dingle family are generally a bunch of inbred lazy country bumpkins, living just on the right side of legality, with a collective heart of gold. Not so the black-hearted and evil Cain who has no redeeming side whatsoever. liar, cheat, thief, conman, bully, seducer, alleged rapist, an entire nation must be psyched up to watch the soap and collectively scream at the screen "How does this bastard get away with it? surely somebody would have shot him by now, aren't guns supposed to be readily available to farmers?"

    It's the pantomime villain theory: psych the audience up to hiss and boo and scream with frustration that the villain is getting away with it. Didn't a lot of professional wrestling work on this basis - the villain gets up to all sort of tricks which the referee never sees...

    First, agreeing that this is a complaining "trope" and thus not needed. Second, it's essentially a duplicate of The Scrappy.
  • March 11, 2013
    I'm slightly confused. The title made it seem like it was scenes that made people angry not a character. Either way I do NOT see this trope lasting long if it ever got launched.
  • March 11, 2013
    Yeah, this one violates No New Complaining Pages. Scrapping it.
  • March 11, 2013
    I didn't mean for it to seem like I'm complaining about the characters, oh well was worth a shot.
  • March 11, 2013
    For whatever the hell it's worth, I did mean for it to be about scenes that frustrate you but I just couldn't come up with a good description. Oh well. Screw me.
