* TheAbridgedSeries - Many people debate on which abridged series is the best and says "This one sucks so this is better!"
* ''WebVideo/AlternateRealityDBZ'' vs ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' ... yeah ... never ask that question.
** Speaking of which, some people say that AlternateReality ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' has fallen apart. Do not ask on which your favorite episode is.
* Machinima/RedVsBlue demonstrated one of these in "The Internet Vs. Real Life" concerning politics:
--> '''--REAL LIFE--'''
--> '''Church:''' Look, that's just the way I feel about it.
--> '''Sarge:''' Well I disagree, but I respect your opinion.
--> '''--INTERNET--'''
--> '''Church:''' You deserve to DIE! Die and go to Hell and burn!
--> '''Sarge:''' Oh, yeah!? Well, I hope you get raped! Twice! Maybe then you'll feel different! Jerk!
** Also, to prep oneself for the internet, the hosts recommend "visiting your local middle-school chess club and passing out crystal meth and guns."
* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner: Say anything outside of the Strong Bad Emails and some people will burn you alive.
* Believe it or not, this very site has a few "flame war" debates usually coming from [[CompleteMonster a certain trope]]. Other tropes qualify too, even this one.
** While both Dethroning moment and Wallbanger pages do have some debates regarding the entries, none of them reached as far as ''[[WebVideo/DeathBattle Death Battle's]]'' [[DethroningMoment/DeathBattle pages]] for them. Edit wars regarding the outcome of the duels became so violent and contested that the mods were forced to lock the pages. However, it was still not enough; other forum pages began to suffer from debates regarding the entries, even asking the locked pages forum to add their own entry. In the end, the mods decide to completely blacklist Death Battle from ever having a Darth entry again, the first time a series has ever landed in this position.
* #2 of ''Website/{{Cracked}}'''s [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-emotions-invented-by-internet_p2/ 6 New Kinds of Anxiety the Internet Gave Us]] is "The Dread of Stumbling into a Hornet's Nest".
* Despite the focus being mainly about video games (or maybe because of it), Creator/SeanMalstrom found himself in a flame war over ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. He claims that the show's popularity among men worries him (this is significant, as he almost always expresses anger or frustration over fear). The show's fans were quick on the reaction to his statements, and he reacted back accordingly to defend his point. He backed down before things got really ugly, but ''Friendship Is Magic'' remains a recurring topic throughout 2013.
* Website/CollegeHumor brings us [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QyYaPWasos "We Didn't Start the Flame War"]] that chronicles several of these on various websites [[WeDidntStartTheBillyJoelParodies set to the tune of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire."]]
* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}:'' To what degree is Weiss racist?
* ''Literature/FloatingPoint'' features a [[InsideAComputerSystem digital world]] of [[ArtificialIntelligence living A.I.]] who tend to ape the worst patterns of TheInternet... including massive flamewars, sometimes involving actual fire.
* A running joke on Website/AlternateHistoryDotCom is that, whenever a thread involving Israel or feminism comes up in the Chat board, at least one person -- and likely more than one -- will get kicked or banned for comments they made in that thread.
* The ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' fandom may as well rival ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' in FlameWar intensity. Here are some common causes:
** Following canon vs. free-form writing. It appears that this is the main reason why many people left the fandom recently. Hate speech is common in this fandom when it comes to fan writers. One side shouts "ABIDE TO CANON!" because of unfavorable fanworks (keep in mind that SturgeonsLaw is in full effect on the fanon side), while the other shouts "LET US EXPRESS OUR OWN IDEAS!" because of how restrictive the canon material is (aside from the cast's personalities and relationships, there's not much you can do, hence why the show puts the characters in "roles" in episodes). No wonder one fan called the former side the "Fandom Nazi".
** Specific fandom trends. Here is the list of things that might generate a FlameWar if exposed enough: InNameOnly fanworks, fan characters with deep backstories or overly-complex concepts, the all-too-common ShipToShipCombat, fan characters stronger than Splendid, talking about other HTF-like shows (especially ''[[SerialNumbersFiledOff London Mobile Buddies]]''), [[OriginalCharacter Ale]] and Flippy-like fan characters, {{Fanservice}}-y art styles, fan characters in relationship with canon characters, humanization/''gijinka'', fan characters in general... The list goes on. It doesn't help that many of the fandom-specific trends died off because of HypeBacklash (occasionally combined with SeinfeldIsUnfunny). Now combine that with the whole canon vs. fanon issue and you get a massive eruption of angry HTF fans.
*** You know a fandom's horrible when the creator of ''London Mobile Buddies'' (the very show that most HTF fans hate) decided to call out on the fandom for being hate-filled. And some people ''agree'' with him. Yes, this includes ''HTF fans'' that support the LMB works.
