[[caption-width-right:200: I hate you, You hate me, you won't get any love from me. I will kill your friends and rip you into two, all I have to say is a big '''fuck you!''']]

Periphery Hatedom is when a character or show receives scorn and hatred from groups it was never meant to appeal to in the first place. It inspires an anti-PeripheryDemographic, who respond to them in such a way that [[FelonyMisdemeanor you'd think they had committed some unspeakable atrocity]].

This is not to say that the dislike is always undeserved. We live in a mass-media world now, and any major pop-culture phenomenon is going to make at least some in-roads into the mainstream and show up on our radar whether it's aimed at us or not. In the worse case scenario, it may become inescapable, or prove so popular in its demographic that those attempting to FollowTheLeader choke out any innovation in other programming for a period. Of course, a Periphery Hatedom can help make things even more inescapable, even well after the pop-culture phenomenon's popularity has died down. Given enough time, even an otherwise benign Periphery Hatedom can look fanatical to disinterested third parties, who are as likely to direct their pleas of "Will you just ''shut up'' about it already?!" to the haters as to the fans.

Keep in mind that some of the stuff that was marketed towards you when ''you'' were a kid had a Periphery Hatedom at the time, and the kids who love a kid-oriented work with a Periphery Hatedom may grow up to become the adults who hate some new kid-oriented work, [[NostalgiaFilter while still viewing the stuff they themselves enjoyed as kids as pure quality.]]

Also, keep in mind that just because something is intended for a specific audience that sometimes is not very concerned with the quality of the work, [[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars that doesn't mean the creators have an excuse to be lazy]], so, if the Periphery Hatedom proves that even for its intended target audience the work isn't good, then they can have a point ("Just because something is made for kids, that doesn't mean they are free to treat them like idiots").

Compare LoveItOrHateIt, where the demographics are not nearly so sharply defined (and the hatedom rarely overshadows the work), and BileFascination, a primary reason for people outside the target demographic to investigate. Contrast HypeBacklash, where a backlash occurs against something people have been told they'd like.

Many {{music}} examples overlap with DeadHorseGenre. Can lead to DeaderThanDisco when a work's target demographic stops liking it and joins in on the bashing. See also AmericansHateTingle for regional examples. Can be caused by WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids MoralGuardians are a specific type of Periphery Hatedom, who sometimes subvert the trope by directing their complaints at how they think the work will affect its ''intended'' audience. However, they often play it straight by [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids getting the target audience wrong]], typically by assuming that everything of [[AnimationAgeGhetto a particular genre]] must be kid-appropriate. Tangentially related are StrawHypocrite (hating someone for not sincerely holding beliefs that the hater never admired in the first place) and StrawAffiliation (criticizing someone for not being a [[NoTrueScotsman "true"]] exemplar of a group to which the critic does not belong).

Remember, this trope is specifically for examples where the hate comes from not pleasing a group that it never planned to reach in the first place. ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch when you're ''within'' its intended audience is not this trope. And cases of former fans rejecting newer versions of their preferred work/genre almost ''never'' fall here unless the work has a FleetingDemographic (such as a lot of kids' shows, teen pop music, etc.) and the fan has grown out of it. Otherwise, move it to TheyChangedItNowItSucks. Also, don't confuse this with the haters of a [[{{Music/Periphery}} certain progressive metal band.]]

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:In-Universe Examples]]
* Much of the content of ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' harshly satirizes franchises, shows, and films that the target readership (mostly young teenage boys) could not be expected to have any real interest in, including soap operas, Hollywood dramas, and children's cartoons. The magazine's iconic comic strip parodies are always written with a tone of exasperated annoyance — even when mocking things that aren't really that omnipresent in the culture.
* The [[HollywoodNerd Hollywood Nerds]] that make up the main male cast of ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' are sometimes looked down on by Penny the non-nerd in playing tabletop [=RPGs=], [=MMORPGs=], card games, video games, and liking comic books, ''Franchise/StarTrek,'' and ''Franchise/StarWars.'' As Penny gets to know them better, she develops more respect for their hobbies, even participating in some of them.
* Gru in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' parodies this trope when one of the orphans he adopts asks him to read a cute children's story called "Three Sleepy Kittens". He calls the book insipid - when it is ''aimed at 5-year olds'', and he's being asked to read it ''by'' a 5-year old.
* ''Mary Moo Cow'', the Barney CaptainErsatz of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' universe, is this to the titular character of the show -- the theme song itself (which is sung ToTheTuneOf Frere Jacques--a common trait of shows with Periphery Hatedom) is known to aggravate Arthur. The ''Tina the Talking Tabby'' commercial in ''Arthur's Perfect Christmas'' and ''Vidiboobies'' (one of the many {{Captain Ersatz}}s of Teletubbies in the show's universe) has the same net effect on Arthur. As does Quacker's song.
** Subverted with the "Love Ducks" (a ''Series/{{Teletubbies}}'' parody). Arthur becomes a fan of the show despite his friends mocking him and saying that it's "a baby show". That is, until they start watching it as well and [[PeripheryDemographic begin enjoying it for its surreal content]].
** The ''WesternAnimation/{{Hopla}}''/''Series/BananasInPyjamas'' CaptainErsatz "Pumpkins In Pants" has this effect on the Tibble twins, who are avid fans of "Mary Moo Cow".
* Baloney from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}},'' a parody of ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'' who is known for [[AndCallHimGeorge inadvertently terrorizing]] the Warners.
* ''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob'' is this towards [[ExploitationFilm exploitation films]], [[ParallelPornTitles porn parodies]], and anything else that isn't TrueArt.
* Bonky the Dragon from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' (though Mikey briefly went back into a Bonky phase when he was afraid of turning ten).
* An early ''ComicStrip/ForBetterOrForWorse'' story consists of Elly being disappointed with finding out Michael has been playing video games at the arcade, and forbids him from doing so at the end of it, tying into the real-life stigma video games faced, as listed below. A person reading reruns of the story or reading it in a book collection might [[ValuesDissonance wonder what the fuss is about]] if they were born after the 1980s or early 1990s, as also listed below.
* One ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' mini-arc has Jason freaking out because his mom bought him a Barney lunchbox instead of the ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' one he wanted. Her logic: They're both dinosaurs. What's the difference? His response: Barney's not a dinosaur! He's a big sappy doofus who sings to little kids!
* Blarney and Georgie, two Barney parodies from ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'', have this effect on Earl, Fran, Robbie, and Charlene. Baby seems to be on the verge of having a LoveItOrHateIt relationship with these two shows.
* ''[[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked]]'' had a scene where Theodore turns on the TV to a movie aimed at toddlers called "Hello Lolly". Alvin and Simon react in disgust and think Dave is treating them like babies. They then change it to a movie about a jungle monster.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'': The movie ''The Dummi Bears in the Land Without Smiles'' from the episode "At the Movies", as throughout the episode, Grandpa Lou spends all his time complaining about the movie's saccharine tone and how he'd rather go bowling.
* The ShowWithinAShow ''Pootan'' to Yamaguchi from ''Anime/CromartieHighSchool''. He finds the show stupid and trash, but everyone else likes it. Yamaguchi even attempts to watch the show until he finds what makes it so popular.
* [[ShowWithinAShow "Asses of Fire"]] from ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' is hated by parents, causing them to murder Terrance and Phillip. The movie isn't even aimed for the main four's targeted audience, which is the main reason Shelia hates the movie.
* In the Josh Radnor movie ''Liberal Arts'', the 35-year old protagonist, who has degree in literature, berates a 19-year old college student for liking the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' books. He considers them to be one of the worst exampes of English literature, despite not having actually read any of the books. This gets subverted, though: he actually reads the first book, and even though he still hates it, by the end of the movie he ends up recommending it to another student, as he figures out not everything college kids read should be serious literature.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''
** In the episode, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E13SomeEnchantedEvening Some Enchanted Evening]]" from the series' first season, while Lisa and Maggie are big fans of WesternAnimation/{{The Smurfs}} parody "The Happy Little Elves", Bart cannot stand it and refers to it as "The Crappy Little Elves". Grampa Abe isn't a big fan of them either. In the ChristmasEpisode pilot, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS1E1SimpsonsRoastingOnAnOpenFire Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire]]," he refers to them as "[[TastesLikeDiabetes unadulterated pap.]]"
** At the beginning of the season 7 episode, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E5LisaTheVegetarian Lisa the Vegetarian]]", the Simpson family goes to Storytown Village, a nursery rhyme theme park intended specifically for one to seven-and-a-half year olds, to go somewhere that one-year-old Maggie would like. Naturally, Bart and Lisa are just above the theme park's target demographic, and while Bart doesn't have a lot of fun at the park, Lisa befriends the cutest lamb at the petting zoo, who inspires her to become a vegetarian.
** In the season 15 episode, "Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples, Teens, and Gays", Bart and Lisa fight over what show they want to watch on TV and accidentally change it to a children's show hosted by the Raffi {{Expy}}, Roofi. This starts Maggie's Roofi addiction. Things go FromBadToWorse for Bart, Lisa, and Homer when Marge buys Maggie a Roofi CD and plays it non-stop for her. It gets to the point where Bart actually begs for Mrs. Krabappel to make him stay after school and [[WritingLines write something on the chalkboard a thousand times]]. Meanwhile, Lisa tries to turn off the CD player by unplugging it (only to find out it's backed up by batteries and a solar panel), and Homer tries to smash the CD player in the middle of the night with a hammer.
** Subverted by Sideshow Bob, who really hates the TV show ''[=MacGyver=]'' - but this was while he was briefly married to Selma Bouvier, who is a big fan of the show, so he was semi-obligated to watch it.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' episode "Get Your Freak Off", Hank highly disapproves the contents in the musics Bobby listens to. (Let alone many other things he dislikes what Bobby likes.) He took Bobby to a boy band concert when he assumed the band was acceptable due to the subtle lyrics and conservative outfits...until he's disgusted when the band strips out of their suits and grab their crotches in front of the preteen crowd. He drags Bobby out of the concert when he is freak dancing with his friends.
* In the short, "Ruffled Ruffee" from the ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' episode, "Music Day", the Raffi {{Expy}} Ruffee fits this trope to a T, particulary towards Buster Bunny, who is part of the teenage rock n' roll crowd. Ruffee refuses to let Buster play his electric guitar, [[IncessantMusicMadness which inadvertently interrupts his concert for impressionable children]]. As a result, Buster gets back at him by attending the concert, dressed in a diaper and a green bonnet, and having to listen to his overly sappy songs simply for the purpose of sabotaging said songs, and the concert as a whole.[[note]]The episode was written to satarize Raffi's earliest performances, when he found it difficult to perform for his target audience (children under the age of 3) because their tiny attention spans were distracting to him and the rest of the audience.[[/note]]
* In ''Film/NineMonths'', there is a Barney clone named Arnie that a mom attacks. The weirdest part? Her children, whom are fans of the show, appear to be in early elementary school, which is the age most people learn to hate the show.
* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' has their version of Barney, Bo-Bo the Friendly Bison. [[http://49.media.tumblr.com/3b0040dbbaa7efd14cc679f017ee619b/tumblr_n8sdflHMjj1tglg2co3_400.gif Bo-Bo is shown as a criminal by stealing Rocko's wallet.]] But despite that, Rocko stated everyone loves Bo-Bo.
* In the ''[[WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan SML Movie]]'' "Christmas Special!", Bowser Junior gives Chef Pee-Pee a ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' toy oven as a present, but he rejects it, claiming that the show the toy is based on teaches kids to be bums.
* This is discussed in ''WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic'' review of ''Film/MyPetMonster'', which ends with the critic actually calling the director to complain about the video and tell him how much he hated it. We only hear the Critic's side of the conversation, but the director essentially asks him why he was watching a movie geared for young kids and, upon hearing that the Critic does this for a living, ''takes pity on him''. The Critic [[HeroicBSOD does not take it well]], spirals into a depression where he only wants to watch commercials, and finally has a [[Film/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Nightmare Before Christmas-style]] epiphany where he goes back to reviewing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/DragonBall Z'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' qualify, as a truly amazing number of hate-sites appeared in the early days of the Internet, most of which were run by the demographic that the other appealed to. That sure explains all the "[[FoeYay DragonMoonX]]" RuleThirtyFour out there.
* The {{moe}} style and concept, to fans of mecha anime and fans who got into anime because of ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. While many mech fans had their misgivings about a strong focus on moe even when it was shows like ''Manga/KOn'' and ''Manga/LuckyStar'', most of them took an instant dislike to shows like ''Anime/StrikeWitches'', ''Anime/SkyGirls'', and ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'', which merged mecha elements with the moe style. Many fans feel robbed by the ubiquity of moe: where once there was a lot of "traditional" anime on the air, now it is forced onto [=OVAs=]; the airtime is filled with SliceOfLife and adaptations of [[VisualNovel Visual]]/{{Light Novel}}s which have pushed more "traditional" anime aside. Add in known mecha directors like Creator/YoshiyukiTomino and Creator/HideakiAnno. Somewhat ironic, as Rei Ayanami in his ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' is considered the TropeCodifier of {{moe}}, if only because of a MisaimedFandom. Throw in calling out moe as strangling the anime industry's creativity, and you've got all the ingredients for a Periphery Hatedom.
* The ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime is hated a lot, mostly because [[LongRunner it's been going on for years and years]] [[StrictlyFormula without being very imaginative]] while [[AnimationAgeGhetto catering almost exclusively to children]], after Takeshi Shudo left the show. For instance, the cover of ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' #386 asked readers to vote on ways of killing Pikachu. Even fans of [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} the games and other aspects of the franchise]] also aren't too happy that Ash and Pikachu's repetitive adventures[[note]]especially the first season[[/note]] [[AdaptationDisplacement define "Pokémon" in the public consciousness more than the games themselves]], ''the very reason why the franchise was created''. Despite this, the first few seasons are well loved in Japan for Takeshi Shudo's trying make the show for kids and their parents alike, and have a very active nostalgia-driven fanbase in the West.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a Periphery Hatedom for the [[{{Bowdlerization}} bowdlerized]] English dub, mostly due to the dub turning the show into a simplistic MerchandiseDriven kids' cartoon. This turned it into ample SnarkBait, allowing for the creation of the popular ''WebAnimation/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', which plays all of the show's and dub's bizarre tropes for laughs.
* ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'':
** The most vocal haters of it were people who apparently could never tell that it was a kid's show and carries all the characteristics of kids' shows that adults absolutely hate. ''Hamtaro'' was a popular target for the PeripheryDemographic of a lot of {{Shonen}} anime, and fans of more "sophisticated" anime (Such as {{Seinen}} and {{Josei}}) love to hate ''Hamtaro''. One bit of irony is when people hated it for catering to the AnimationAgeGhetto and being made for younger kids, even though it was intended for the little kid demographic in Japan. In the United States, ''Hamtaro'' aired on Creator/{{Toonami}}. In the commercials, not even Tom could tell why he was watching it. His exact words were "... Well, at least they're cute."
** An interview with [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/anncast/2015-02-27/.85411 Jason DeMarco]], one of Toonami's original founders and in charge of the recent revival, showed that [=DeMarco=] hated the show too. He said that the Cartoon Network executives forced ''Hamtaro'' onto the block, and he had no say in it.
* ''Franchise/{{Anpanman}}'' has this in Japan, due to HypeBacklash, to the point where the videos on Website/YouTube for the show have ''more dislikes'' than likes.
* ''Anime/{{Free}}'' gets flak from people (mostly males) who feel that beefcake FanService and {{Moe}} boys bleed {{Squick}}.
* ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' gets this for [[TastesLikeDiabetes how sweet and innocent it is]]. It even got to the point where [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-08-05/man-arrested-for-bomb-threat-to-precure-film-screening-on-twitter/.91307 a hater threatened to bomb a theater showing one of the films.]]
* The ''Shizuku-chan'' manga and anime gets this for being a show for kids and too cutesy.
* Most [[{{kodomomuke}} kodomo anime]] or lighter-toned shonen, and shojo, series aren't even on international anime fans radars. If they are you can guarantee they will get hate for not being as "[[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids mature]]" as what people expect from anime. As mentioned, ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'' and even ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' has fallen into this pit over the years (though other more violent adaptations of ''VideoGame/{{Pokemon}}'' like ''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' and ''Anime/PokemonOrigins'' haven't.)
* The {{tsundere}} is probably the most hated of the -dere types. It became so hated in the mid-to-late 2000s when they became increasingly violent and began appearing more. Newer tsundere characters, often generally considered {{Shana Clone}}s, are also hated by people who prefer 90s tsundere characters to the point where there's a BrokenBase between "classic tsundere" and "modern tsundere" fans.
* The OtokonokoGenre, [[DudeLooksLikeALady androgynous]] guys and WholesomeCrossdresser boys in general gets this a lot from people who dislike feminine males or don't understand the appeal. {{Bifauxnen}} and [[LadyLooksLikeADude masculine]] girls don't receive the same amount of hate.
* The YaoiGenre has an astonishing amount of hate from both straight men and gay men. Straight men are grossed out by boys in love and tease YaoiFangirl's while gay men aren't often drawn to yaoi series because they're aimed at teenage girls and young women, thus aren't realistic and delve into {{uke}}-{{seme}} stereotypes a lot. Making fun at the poor anatomy in a lot of yaoi genre manga (referred to as "[[MemeticMutation yaoi hands]]") is a favorite thing to do.
* ''Anime/YoKaiWatch'' is getting this in a similar manner to the video game below from multiple camps: those who are dismayed with its [[CashCowFranchise massive popularity in Japan]], those put off by the humorous tone as opposed to DarkerAndEdgier anime with similar subject matter; and fans of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime who don't take kindly to it being hailed as a "Pokémon killer". As a result, a rather nasty FandomRivalry has formed because of the series' debut in the US.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* For several decades ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' has had an unsightly amount of hate amongst the comic book community. It's been mocked for being seen as too tame, too formulatic, and too "casual" compared to superhero comics. Archie as a protagonist gets a lot of hate personally, due to his [[DependingOnTheWriter fluctuating personality]] and peoples inability to understand why such an average boy is a ChickMagnet, which never helped. In the 2010s much of the periphery hatedom is dying out thanks to various successful spinoffs and a more "modern" reboot that resonates well with comic readers.
* Comics aimed at female audiences have been known to get a lot of hate from male readers, especially cape comic ones.
* And beyond any of these, the hate directed at superhero comics from roughly the early 1980s to the mid-2000s by artcomics fans and creators who were convinced that the comics medium would never get artistic respect until superhero comics were DESTROYED FOREVER. It got to the point that Dan Clowes' ''[[ComicBook/{{Eightball}} The Death Ray]]'' was given hugely positive reviews by some online critics purely because of how nastily they thought it [[DeconstructiveParody attacked superhero comics and their fans]]. (When the comic was reissued a few years later Clowes himself stated that he didn't hate superhero comics and hadn't intended it particularly aggressively). It largely died out (apart from a few ageing die-hards) in the mid-2000s when, following the manga boom, artistic graphic novels finally started taking off in the wider bookstore market, with superhero comics still being in existence.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'' has received a disproportionate amount of mockery over the years from people not in its kids-say-the-darndest-things-isn't-it-cute? demographic (though of course this could be more an expression of just wanting to poke fun at things than obsessive hatred).
* Jack Chick's ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'' do a zig-zagging of this trope. The tracts are supposed to be aimed at non-Evangelicals, to bring them into the fold, but only an Evangelical could possibly take them seriously (and even most of them think they're absurd), while his target audience despises the contents. It is for this reason that his fanbase consists primarily of people who [[SoBadItsGood read his comics to make fun of them]].
* ''ComicStrip/{{Marvin}}'' is written exclusively for [[FleetingDemographic new mothers.]] Everybody else seems to hate it.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' suffers from heavy NostalgiaFilter syndrome, and is often hated by people who believe it's "gotten worse" when in reality it's a strip best enjoyed by kids. It's also something of an [[TheArtifact Artifact]] of the late 1970s, so it's basically a baby-boomer strip. So most of the complaints seem to come from Generation X'ers who enjoyed it as kids and have become too "sophisticated" for it, while many Baby Boomers (now in their fifties or older) don't read the comics much anymore and are too busy complaining about other things.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Disney]]
* All Disney films are this, to a degree at least. While there are some that are well liked due to their serious nature, such as ''Disney/TheLionKing'', even those still have musical numbers that a lot of older fans would probably find painful to sit through. Such a Periphery Hatedom was probably most prominent during the days of the DisneyRenaissance itself, then started to fade as [[NostalgiaFilter people who were fans of the Renaissance movies as kids started to grow up]]...and then returned in full force when ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' (and to a lesser extent, ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'') generated a ton of attention, hype and praise that some people found baffling.
* Some are critical of Disney altogether (the corporation, Disneyfication of public domain classics, racial and gender stereotypes and so on).
* ''Cars''. Kids ''love'' ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}''... but it's one of the few Pixar movies that doesn't have a lot of adult appeal. Of course, some people hate ''Cars'' because Disney absolutely adores it, despite that it was received among the ''worst'' by critics and Pixar's usual adult fanbase. This is mostly because the only reason they made a sequel was for TheMerch. It's because of this that despite ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' being one of Pixar's highest rated movies, their stock actually ''dropped''. Why? Because stockholders knew it wasn't made for merchandizing.
* Franchise/DisneyPrincess movies, especially Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon ones, tend to attract a male Periphery Hatedom despite being well-regarded by critics of both genders in most cases. Many of these haters are very young boys who simply hate the movies for being "[[GirlShowGhetto stupid and girly]]", but older males can also develop some spite towards them for various reasons, mostly related to ItsPopularNowItSucks. Many tomboyish girls also hate the Disney Princess franchise for the same reasons that boys hate them. Feminists also make up a sizable percentage of the hatedom due to many of them finding the princesses to be [[GirlsNeedRoleModels bad role models for little girls]]. There are also those who dislike them because [[SpotlightStealingSquad Disney is often synonymous with "Princess films"]] and they think Disney makes too many.
* Quite a few teenage boys and young men resent ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' due to ItsPopularNowItSucks, especially since it outgrossed most other movies for their demographic -- including its male-oriented predecessor ''Disney/WreckItRalph'' and successor ''Disney/BigHero6'', as well as every single superhero movie ever except ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. The fact that this record is a result of GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff can either make this better or worse, depending on one's bias. Not helping matters is the movie's male characters and villains failing to draw a significant fanbase, with many thinking of Kristoff as insignificant and clueless compared to Anna or Elsa, Hans lacking [[spoiler:the EvilIsCool factor of many past Disney villains]], and [[PluckyComicRelief Olaf]] being very entertaining but still being a Disney sidekick (not the type of character to attract fanboys).
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'', Creator/{{Pixar}}'s own Franchise/DisneyPrincess film, also got this reaction for AwardSnub reasons. It got positive reviews that were nonetheless very mixed by Pixar standards, which caused it to attract a lot of bile from males when it won the Oscar for Best Animated Picture over better-reviewed (and coincidentially male-oriented) competition (''Disney/WreckItRalph'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePiratesInAnAdventureWithScientists'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/ParaNorman''). Because the common consensus was that ''Ralph'' would win the Oscar, some believed that ''Brave'''s win was simply a move to promote feminism rather than an actual measure of the movie's quality, with it being the first Pixar movie directed by a woman and starring a female protagonist.
* Despite being regarded as one of the best Disney movies of the past few years, ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' has received a lot of hate... Because, due to its characters being FunnyAnimals, it has a ''huge'' popularity among the FurryFandom.
* People hate a lot on Music/MileyCyrus, the Music/JonasBrothers, and most of these teenage, Creator/{{Disney}}-sponsored musical artists who are really only supposed to appeal to younger girls. These fans express appreciation through high-pitched {{Squee}}, and these artists didn't seem to appeal to anyone else (they were too young to invoke ParentService and Creator/{{Disney}} has nearly abandoned their flagship [=IPs=] like Mickey and Goofy to focus on marketing these singers), so tolerance for {{Squee}} in everyone else is at a minimum. Since most of these artists have disassociated from Disney and the company has stopped overpromoting this teen-oriented musical division, the hatedom has faded a bit. In the case of Miley Cyrus, when she broke out from her ContractualPurity and went into a more daring approach, like her performance in the 2013 MTV [=VMAs=], she got more flack, particularly from MoralGuardians.
* ''WesternAnimation/The7D'' got a lot of backlash from fans of the 1937 Disney animated film ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' for not only radically changing the character designs of the dwarfs themselves (courtesy of ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks'' creator Noah Z. Jones), but for also not even mentioning Snow White's existence, adding new characters called the Glooms, and more. The fact that Creator/WhoopiGoldberg (of all people) voices the Magic Mirror doesn't help matters.
* ''Film/{{Descendants}}'' was a hit with its target demographic of preteens and younger teenagers. A lot of the older Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon fans absolutely hate it. The premise isn't disliked nearly as much as how the the characters are written, the designs themselves, the music, and how the series presents itself is. It just irks many adults who enjoy Disney. There is also a sizable hatedom from fans of ''Franchise/EverAfterHigh'' due to ''Descendants''' premise being similar to that of ''Ever After High'', as well as similar characters.
* It appears that ''WesternAnimation/DocMcStuffins'', despite its large PeripheryDemographic, has somehow gathered a small number of haters as well. Most of them appears to be bored teens who harbor a dislike for Lambie due to her TastesLikeDiabetes nature.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'' has quite few haters who believe that [[TheScrappy Bunga is annoying]], it has poor animation compared to the [[Disney/TheLionKing films upon which]] [[Disney/TheLionKingIISimbasPride it was based]], it was only made to [[FollowTheLeader cash in on the success of]] ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', it overuses [[ToiletHumor fart jokes]], and that its nature as a simplistic preschool series is a disgrace to the emotionally deep and [[MultipleDemographicAppeal more demographically inclusive]] classic Disney movie that it's based on.
* ''WesternAnimation/LittleEinsteins'' is hated by exactly five schools of people: those who can't stand the inanity or shallowness of the story, those who don't like being treated like they have the memory of a goldfish, those who can't stand them shoehorning silly lyrics onto classical melodies, those who don't believe the claims made by the producers of the series that your child will end up smarter than Stephen Hawking just for watching the series, and longtime Disney Junior fans who miss the shows of the block's early days as Playhouse Disney. There are also people who hate it due to it bouncing back and forth between treating its target audience (children) like they [[ViewersAreGeniuses are smarter than they look]] and treating them like they have the IQ of a rotten potato. One moment the characters could give an (albeit ''extremely'' simplified) explanation on escape velocity, and the next they could ask the kids at home if they can count to three.
* ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse'', popular among the toddler set it's aimed at, has earned mixed reviews from critics and Disney fans alike for putting their mascot and company into a toddler show, but it's many people on social networks who have a deep hate for it that tend to be more vocal about it. The fact that Disney still goes along making new episodes for this show does NOT help matters, nor does the fact that they market Mickey's ''Clubhouse'' incarnation more aggressively than his earlier, more PeripheryDemographic-friendly appearances. Of course, some of this may be CondescendingCompassion on the part of parents, as in "I feel sorry for today's kids being brought up to think this is quality entertainment. [[WhenIWasYourAge Back in my day]], we had ''good'' cartoons."
* ''My Friends Tigger and Pooh'', in addition to removing Owl, dropped Christopher Robin entirely and he got replaced by a new girl named Darby, which leads to understandable flak by fans of the movie and books. Which actually led to Disney restoring Christopher Robin back into the show in later seasons, although it still wasn't enough (Christopher Robin was still demoted to a minor character and didn't appear in as many episodes as fans would like).
* [[http://www.frommeredithtomommy.com/2014/01/nina-needs-to-go-away.html A lot of parents]] hate the [[Creator/DisneyChannel Disney Junior]] short series ''WesternAnimation/NinaNeedsToGo!'' due to its AesopAmnesia, how unrealistic the show is,[[note]] In each episode, Nina's secret agent-esque Nana takes Nina to the bathroom in the most exciting way possible, and in the CampingEpisode, the animals build Nina a bathroom because [[ShyBladder she doesn't want anyone to see her while she goes]]. [[/note]] because their kids [[BrokenAesop misunderstood the show's message as a result]], and the fact that [[PottyEmergency the main character always has to use the bathroom no matter where she is]]. The fact that Pull-Ups Training Pants (or Pampers, depending on your region) is the show's primary sponsor only adds to the irk (Disney Junior is a premium network which costs extra on top of the basic kids package on some Pay TV providers. Understandably, parents were irked when they have to put up with advertising on a channel that they're already paying extra for). Some people believe that the show is worse than the TropeCodifier Barney!
* ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter'', to those who don't [[NostalgiaFilter have fond memories of watching the show]]. Its overall brightness and cheeriness, combined with the overload of songs, [[TastesLikeDiabetes creates cavities to the nth degree]].
* Whilst a majority of people (especially [[PeripheryDemographic adults and teenagers, alongside its target audience]]) like ''WesternAnimation/SofiaTheFirst'', there are quite a few people who judge it without even watching a single episode just because it airs on a '''preschool network'''. It also has a considerable amount of hate from Franchise/DisneyPrincess fans who either dislike Sofia, dislike how the series portrays the princesses, or hates how they're drawn/[[TheOtherDarrin voiced]]. Prior to release it got hate for "[[LatinoIsBrown Sofia being too pale to be latina]]" but that view has since died down.
* ''WesternAnimation/SpecialAgentOso'', mostly from the [[ViewersAreGoldfish "Every episode is the same!"]] school of thought, the [[UncannyValley ugly saccharine CGI animation]], and the main character being TooDumbToLive.
* Before ''Nina Needs To Go!'', Disney Junior had ''This is Daniel Cook''. People hated it because the titular character always acted excited no matter what the situation was. The hate has died down, however, now that the show hasn't been seen for plenty of years.
* Both Disney series created by Noah Z. Jones (who also created ''Almost Naked Animals'', covered below) fall into this. ''WesternAnimation/FishHooks'' had this for essentially being [[ClicheStorm every high school cliche in the book]] [[RecycledInSpace put underwater]]. His next Disney creation, ''WesternAnimation/PickleAndPeanut'', is even more despised, being considered as Disney's answer to ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'' thanks to its overusage of stock photos (the title characters themselves are stock photos!), grossout humour, and [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks similarities to]] the aforementioned ''Breadwinners'' and ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow''.

[[folder:Films]]
* In the specific case of ''Film/SpeedRacer'', a large portion of the original fanbase grew older and were likely expecting something ''a bit'' DarkerAndEdgier for them (like the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movie).
* The ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' movies are hugely popular with kids. As a bonus, the "squeakquel" handily outpacing the effort on ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'' (intended to WinBackTheCrowd for hand-drawn animation) at the box office has earned it a great deal of wrath from Disney fans who mourn for the tastes of children.
* Adult [[Franchise/TheMuppets Muppet]] fans have a history of forming Periphery Hatedoms towards movies that directly compete with, and outdraw, the newer Muppet movies. These movies usually aren't for their demographic and get much worse reviews than the well-reviewed Muppet movies. 2011's ''Film/TheMuppets'', despite getting rave reviews, was outdrawn by a ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' sequel (described in "Literature", below) and an ''Alvin and the Chipmunks'' threequel (described just above), both of which got pretty bad reviews. ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' got this even worse; not only was it beaten by ''Film/{{Divergent}}'' (a YA adaptation) at the box office, but it was even turned into an AcclaimedFlop due to the competition. Needless to say, Muppet fans now don't take very kindly to young-adult female novel adaptations or half live-action half-CGI kiddie movies based on archaic cartoon characters.
* Creator/TylerPerry's movies have created a series of minor racism controversies based on the fact that they tend to be critically-drubbed by the vast majority of critics (most of whom are white), yet are extraordinarily popular in the black community, which has turned these movies into #1 hits. Creator/RogerEbert seemed to be a particular target. On top of that, Perry also experiences this among black viewers. Perry got his start staging plays on what's sometimes called the "Chitlin' Circuit", a {{vaudeville}}-esque black theater circuit which primarily caters to older, more conservative, and more religious audiences. African American subcultures experience as much ValuesDissonance with each other as they do with anyone else; someone who identifies with Reggie Watts or Aaron [=McGruder=] could find Perry quite tasteless, and vise-versa. Perry even threatened to pull some of his content from TBS after one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' made harsh fun of the UnfortunateImplications and StrictlyFormula tendencies of Perry's movies. Either way, Perry [[PanderingToTheBase caters to a very specific demographic]] with which many African Americans do not identify.
* ''Minya'' (the "Film/SonOfGodzilla") was created specifically in 1967 in order to appeal to younger audiences (at the time, there were more kids that were going to see Godzilla movies than adults). Of course, Minya started [[DeaderThanDisco being considered to be]] [[TheScrappy the single most-hated character]] in the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise, with the possible exception of [[Film/GodzillaVsMegalon Jet Jaguar]].
* ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' suffers hard from this trope according to several reviews. It doesn't help that it's essentially a combination of ''Barney and Friends'' and ''Series/{{Teletubbies}}'' (two of the most notorious examples) as a feature film.
* ''Film/TheSmurfs'' LiveActionAdaptation gets this under similar conditions to the ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' movies. That and the fact that the [=CGI=] Smurfs look [[UncannyValley downright creepy]].
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'': The movies are a big target for this kind of thing.
** The ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movies in general, unlike the original cartoon, are aimed at teenage/young adult fanboys rather than children. They get a lot of hate from people outside that demographic (and even some people ''within'' that demographic) due to their shallow plotting, vulgar humor, [[HumanFocusedAdaptation focus on the human characters]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and the overly complex designs for the robots]].
** ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' is by far the most widely hated movie in the series, even by fans of the other movies. Not only are the usual complaints about its quality (it has a 16% rating on Website/RottenTomatoes), but fans also heavily resent how it [[NeverLiveItDown permanently ruined the series' reputation]] and is responsible for the Periphery Hatedom for the series in general.
* The ''Franchise/IceAge'' sequels (the first film is generally well-regarded) tend to get criticized for being a little too cartoony and historically inaccurate by adults, and also for tending to have rather unoriginal stories. It doesn't help that there have been four Ice Age movies, with a fifth one on the way.
* Propaganda films (the ones by MichaelMoore in particular) seem to be reflexively hated by people who would have to be dragged kicking and screaming into a theater to watch them. When pressed for an explanation, such a loather of "schlockumentaries" (to give one popular [[FanNickname Anti-Fan Nickname]]) will often say that they're "biased" [[GoldenMeanFallacy (um, isn't that the whole point?)]] or that they're [[ThinkOfTheChildren "filling kids' heads with junk"]] (even though such films are often rated PG-13 or R, making it difficult for most "kids" to see them).
* ''Film/PunchDrunkLove'', meant to be a semi-serious arthouse film, gathered a lot of ire when fans of Adam Sandler's previous work (silly, mostly low-brow comedies) didn't get what they expected out of it.
* Siskel and Ebert somewhat infamously did a special episode about "Women in Danger" movies. To anyone particularly well-versed in horror the episode really seems quite ill-informed. The most obvious flaw is that they frequently assert that Slashers are rapists representing sexually-frustrated males mad at feminism. Bizarrely, they used clips from the original ''Film/FridayThe13th1980''... [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled which has a female killer!]]]]
* ''WesternAnimation/NormOfTheNorth'' has massive hatedom from critics and [=YouTubers=]. This most likely due to having people moving to the arctic, the animation, the ToiletHumor and the voice of the titluar Norm.
* Great goggily moggily, have the ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' Minions gained one of these over time! You can thank HypeBacklash for that, as they have gotten many accusations of being [[TheScrappy annoying]], [[SpotlightStealingSquad over-promoted]], and upstaging all of the other characters of the two movies over time, resulting in people just getting sick of them. The straw that broke the camel's back was when they got [[WesternAnimation/{{Minions}} their own movie]], which ironically outgrossed the two ''Despicable Me'' movies and became the second highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
* Horror films tend to be hated by children since, as one could gather, the monsters/killers/whatever scare them (and not in the same way as their [[NightmareFetishist target audience]]). This also applies to anyone who just doesn't like being scared, regardless of age.
* There's a lot of jokes about [[ChickFlick Chick Flicks]], most of them from outside the audience they're meant to attract. These jokes are usually about how all of them are [[ClicheStorm incredibly trite]]; a few of them (such as the kind seen on Hallmark or Lifetime) are targeted for being filled with {{Glurge}} and/or UnfortunateImplications.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* ''Literature/LeftBehind'' has a ''huge'' Periphery Hatedom; anybody who doesn't subscribe to the authors' precise apocalyptic vision is a potential member. Ironically [[http://exharpazo.blogspot.com/2007/01/index-to-slactivists-left-behind.html the most in-depth (by far) critique]] of the series is being produced by a (progressive) evangelical Christian. The hatred comes from several directions: those who aren't Christians and disagree with its message from the outset, those who ''are'' Christians but think the authors are on the fringe and [[StopBeingStereotypical making the rest look bad]], and even those who are Christian and who believe the Rapture is imminent, but think ''Left Behind'' has got it all wrong. Some may feel it's an easy work of fiction to avoid due to limited mainstream marketing, though this depends on where you live, such as if you're in an area where typical ''Left Behind'' readers are the majority (though even then, it's hardly on the level of ''Twilight''). However, much like some of the ''Twilight'' hatred, the criticism is sometimes about what the stories are indicative of, and what influence they have on the readers in the intended demographic. And then there are those people who just find apocalyptic (non)fiction creepy, and wish people would just keep their [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt End Of the World As We Know It]] fantasies - or beliefs - to themselves.
* The ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series attracts both legions of fans even in this very wiki, and even larger legions of the {{Hatedom}}, some of whom have never read the books or seen the movies, and some who have. The hatred tends to be split between the direct hatred for the [[YourVampiresSuck sparkly vampires]] / [[MarySue Canon Sue allegations]]/ PurpleProse sex scenes/UnfortunateImplications allegations/ what have you, the HypeAversion from all the Edward-or-Jacob ShipToShipCombat that saturated the world, and the (sometimes fanatically) held belief that [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking it's just not written very well]]. The hate for Twilight among Goths seems to be particularly vitriolic. Anyone expressing love for Twilight is generally met with an icy or hostile reception. Events specifically to bash Twilight are common. The Hatedom got so big that it created a whole new fandom. The riffs of the [[TheFilmoftheBook film adaptations]] of this series on Podcast/RiffTrax became the most popular and anticipated riffs.
* ''Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' was aimed at (roughly) the same audience as ''Twilight'', and got hate from people it was never supposed to appeal to, namely feminist women, people who actually ''do'' BDSM, and men.
* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' gets this from two groups: non-Christians who dislike its overtly Christian themes and symbolism and see them as propaganda, and adult fantasy fans who dislike it for being LighterAndFluffier than contemporary fantasy like the works of Tolkien. It was never made for either of these groups: Lewis wrote it for children who were ''already'' Christian (not to convert those who weren't) to explore their faith through a more accessible framework than TheBible. He even got angry letters from some parents for his apparent blasphemy in supposedly turning Jesus into a lion; Lewis responded that children often see animals as people, so it's not blasphemous to ''them''.
* Classic literature made into [[SchoolStudyMedia compulsory reading at school]] can receive a lot of active hatred from students who are forced to read it, interpret it endlessly and write long essays on it, especially if they find a given book boring or incomprehensible (though even an enjoyable book can be completely ruined if it becomes a school assignment.) This can be seen in Poland -- classic Polish works which had the misfortune of being assigned at school tend to gather surprisingly many very negative ratings on book websites. It's especially jarring because they're otherwise generally considered masterpieces of literature... which is how they became compulsory reading in the first place.
* As a particularly egregious example of the above, almost all German students who had to read one of the works of Creator/TheodorFontane (particularly ''Literature/EffiBriest'') ''hate'' it. This goes even beyond the disdain for being forced to read (and analyze) classics in school, as ''Effi Briest'' was simply never aimed at a young adult audience. Even most teachers are able to admit that they themselves only learned to enjoy the book when they were well into middle age. And they ''studied'' literature in college, so they ''better'' enjoy German classics.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BarneyAndFriends'', to the point where this trope used to be called "The Barney":
** Barney the Purple Dinosaur gets this treatment for the amount of sheer vitriol levelled against him for his crime of being big, cloying, purple, doofy, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] [[ComicStrip/FoxTrot not a carnivore]], among many other reasons. A surprisingly large number of the most extreme Barney-haters are not parents and don't have toddler-age siblings, and therefore could avoid him simply by not watching the show. They probably would not have heard of the show if it were not for the already existing Periphery Hatedom and their watching of the channel it's on. One big reason for the hate from people outside the demographic is because it would often air at times when college students were watching TV, so, at the series' peak in popularity, it was pretty hard to escape. Barney hatred is so deeply ingrained into the elementary-school-age community that some kids will automatically hate ''anything'' named Barney, from real people to fictional characters. However, the hate against Barney has practically become DeaderThanDisco (there's still haters, but are mostly confined to places where reruns of the series still air and some websites), due to the TV series being all but cancelled ([[WordOfGod Cast members of the show]] have merely said that it's ''[[SeriesHiatus on hiatus]]'') in 2010 (in October 2015, [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/mipcom-barney-friends-set-relaunch-829728 it was announced that the series will be relaunched in 2017]]). In addition, the show's original viewers, who generally view the series in a more positive light, have grown up.
** Barney hate is referenced in ''Film/JurassicParkIII'': one character manages to get a phone call in to an old friend's house to call for help, but unfortunately her infant son picks up the phone and forgets all about it as a Barney video plays on TV.
** When Harry Hill was on ''[[Series/{{Room101}} Room 101]]'', he chose Barney as one of his things to put in Room 101, not just because he finds him annoying, but because he's anatomically incorrect. He'd rather his kids were entertained by a real dinosaur.
--->'''Harry:''' It's not even realistic...
** The music video for "[[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Jurassic Park]]" featured a scene with Barney getting his head bitten off by an even larger dinosaur. It later gets coughed back up. When this video is played during his concerts, that particular scene is met with roaring applause and cheer by the audience. Weird Al has taken jabs at the purple dinosaur in several other of his music videos, too. For example, the animated music video "I'll Sue Ya!" featured a familiarly colored toy dinosaur chewing on someone's mutilated arm in one scene.
** The song "Barney's on Fire" by Tony Mason is all about this, to the point that even the audience delight in the gristly spectacle and actively refuse to help, even though they're aware there's a perfectly normal actor in that suit ''who is dying horribly''. ComedicSociopathy taken to a horrifying level.
** In ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'', the PointyHairedBoss is a ''Barney'' fan, the joke being that he's a grown man who enjoys a show which 6-year olds consider babyish because [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough he's just that stupid]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhdhH3cVhUE once made the joke]] at Homer Simpson's expense.
** The special ''Hey, Hey, Hey, It's The Monkees'', also referenced Barney hate. During one part of the special, one of the band members pulls out a Barney puppet for some kids. When another member asks him about it, he puts the Barney puppet away and pulls out a Monkees puppet instead.
** ''VideoGame/LunarEternalBlue'' has a book in the library about killing Barney, to which Ruby says "Hallelujah it's about time somebody wrote this book".
** TheOtherWiki even has its own page dedicated to all of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Barney_humor Barney hate,]] which is roughly as long as the same site's page on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barney_%26_Friends just the show itself.]]
** Averted in ''Film/HeavenIsForReal'', where a firefighter says that a flight attendant he used to work with says she once thought she was talking to Barney.
** The old FightingGame ''VideoGame/XenophageAlienBloodsport'' had DummiedOut files for a familiar-looking dinosaur character named [[BlandNameProduct "Blarney"]]. Using hacks, you could play as (or against) him, but his only attack is shooting hearts and he tends to glitch a lot.
** ''Jane Austen's Mafia'' ends with a Barney look-alike getting speared by the eskimo, followed by the eskimo in question doing a celebration dance to Sister Sledge's "We Are Family".
** ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'''s show-within-a-show Humphrey the Hippo is a blatant Barney {{expy}} who is hated by everyone, even the children in the audience.
** ''VideoGame/CometBusters'', a Windows 3.1 ''VideoGame/{{Asteroids}}'' clone that got popular for its multiplayer, uses Barney heads for the rocks in level 8.
* ''Series/HeresHumphrey'': Humphrey B. Bear can be viewed as the [[LandDownUnder Australian]] Barney, due to the way he is hated by many pre-teens in his homeland for his goofy antics. And oh, for having a human co-host that talks down to the viewers. Like pre-teens from other developed countries, Australian pre-teens don't like being talked down to either, and like pre-teens from other developed countries, the pre-teen boys naturally dislike being around girls. However, Humphrey invokes the NostalgiaFilter sooner -- most Australians tend to remember him more favorably by the time they reach their late teens. Barney {{Hatedom}} usually doesn't fade and get replaced by NostalgiaFilter until the former viewer-cum-hater has started a family, which by time he/she will be in the late 20s or early-30s (and sometimes, it doesn't even leave). The fact that Humphrey's co-host is usually a hot chick (albeit one that talks down to kids) probably helps.
* ''Series/{{Teletubbies}}'': Barney is the king of this trope, but this is worthy company for him. The ''Teletubbies'' is even hated due to the "Bear and Lion" vignette. They were not meant for you. Especially not if you're denouncing one of them for being gay. While it has the usual Periphery Hatedom, some concerned parents made waves when it was thought that the nonsense speech of the main characters might be hurting the verbal development of its target audience at a time when their babbling starts to cohere into words and basic sentences. There's also the argument that ''any'' television program is bad for a target audience at a developmental period where they're mainly learning how to move. It's possible to believe that the people actually making the show did their best with the content and still think the primary intent and effect of the show's existence was to increase the exposure of infants to TV commercials and brand logos (a frankly bizarre claim given that it was first made by and shown on Creator/TheBBC, which has '''no adverts''').
* ''The Lawrence Welk Show'', in the 1970s and since. It was enormously popular when it was new, in the '50s, but by the time it had lasted 20 years, the number of people in the {{periphery demographic}}s far outnumbered the people for whom it was originally intended. Even in TheFifties, comedians like Sid Caesar and Creator/AllanSherman mocked it as a TastesLikeDiabetes ReactionaryFantasy. The show [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin fervently denied anything remotely dark or risqué]][[note]]Making even more HilariousInHindsight [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye3ecDYxOkg this!]][[/note]] even if it fit with the standards of the time. The over-done art direction and [[StepfordSmiler eerily persistent grins]] even seemed [[UncannyValley eerily inhuman]] to some people. It also featured many regional acts tailored to please Vaudeville and State Fair audiences. Broad, diverse TV audiences probably felt some stylistic ValuesDissonance. If you want an idea of how behind-the-times ''The Lawrence Welk Show'' was even in its day, consider the episode that had a tribute to America's ethnic diversity. The most exotic ethnic group featured were...[[ButNotTooForeign the Italians]]. Even by the 1970s, Welk was still shown to be out of touch with the times, an infamous example being introducing Brewer and Shipley's 1971 hit "One Toke Over the Line" as a "modern spiritual" (when in fact it was a mock spiritual, and then vice-president Spiro Agnew claimed it was subversive). Although some contemporary songs slowly found their way onto the show – for instance, one 1975 episode had cast members singing covers of Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together" and Morris Albert's "Feelings," while another featured Three Dog Night's "An Old-Fashioned Love Song" – the show still relied heavily on pre-1955 (namely, big band, patriotic, sacred and pop standards) for its songs. Even as late as the mid-1970s, there were many households that had one television set, meaning if the parents liked it, the children – especially teenagers, who winced at the mere mention of music they considered "square," "unlistenable" and outdated – had little choice but to either watch, go to a friend's house or do something else.
* ''Series/SesameStreet'':
** Elmo became less than popular to a large number of the show's longtime fans, mainly because the show's focus somehow shifted onto him and less on the other Muppets and characters. Made worse by Sesame Workshop deciding to assign a fifteen-minute segment of ''Sesame Street'' to the segment ''Elmo's World'', and giving the segment an ending song set to a traditional song (Jingle Bells), like fellow children's show ''Barney & Friends.''[[note]]Half an hour in certain markets, made possible by airing two episodes back to back. Said network also tend to butcher Sesame Street so that it runs for only half hour to allow the two episodes of Elmo's World to run back to back, leading the less-informed to think that Sesame Workshop did shorten the show to allow more time for Elmo's World.[[/note]] Much of the intended demographic loved it, however.
** Averted with ''Elmo: The Musical'' due to it actually being entertaining and having cameos by Muppet puppets that haven't appeared on the show since the 90's. The [[MilestoneCelebration 30th anniversary special]] ''Elmopalooza'' is also an aversion due to having plenty of [[ParentalBonus parental bonuses]] and well-known musical artists and celebrities as guests stars.
** Children who have just outgrown ''Sesame Street'' have been known to hate the show and equate it to ''Barney'', due to their being too young to understand the show's honest efforts to educate children and [[ParentalBonus keep their parents amused]] -- and ''Sesame Street'' predates ''Barney and Friends'' by about a quarter of a century.
** A few adults also feel this way towards ''Sesame Street'' - not because of any lack of quality, but because it has an active, loving adult/teen fanbase that rarely has anything bad to say about the show, and viral segments from the show tend to be universally praised. This can baffle people who don't really see the appeal in a show that is (and always will be) an educational program for very young children.
** Showing that history can indeed repeat itself, Abby is currently getting the same treatment as Elmo, mainly from the generation of young adults and teens that grew up watching and fell in love with Elmo. Abby's popularity with the older fanbase is a BrokenBase--some find her a refreshing change from the two decades of Elmo (although how long this will last before they start getting annoyed by her remains a question), while others still don't care and still want the focus to be back on Big Bird and the muppets (and even human characters) of their time. Basically, the root cause of the hatedom here is the generation gap combined with a NostalgiaFilter, combined with a heaping dose of TheyChangedItNowItSucks.
* ''Series/SexAndTheCity'': Many men, and women outside the target demographic, see the characters as shallow and overly consumerist and far too prone to inane chatter, or as horrifyingly whiny, self obsessed, and irresponsible. When the series left the scene, most of its old hatedom started being focused on ''Series/{{Girls}}''. Creator Lena Dunham gets most of the flack.
* The [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]] to ''Sex and the City'', ''Series/{{Entourage}}'', gets many similar complaints, still mostly from those outside the target demographic.
* ''Series/DinoDan'', mostly from the school of thought of "that kid needs help" (a hearty serving of HamAndCheese sandwiches doesn't help, either).
* ''Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm'' was billed from the start as being very Jewish, and as a consequence, did not get nearly as many fans as ''Seinfeld''. It's probably more a backlash to the YouHaveToHaveJews trope, which can get pretty annoying if you're not Jewish.
* In UsefulNotes/{{Mexico}}, {{telenovela}}s or soap operas are still hugely popular among their [[{{Housewife}} target audiences]] (although certainly they are ''not'' the only ones who watch them), but other demographics such as intellectuals and working women tend not only to hate the shows, but also to be condescending with the fans, mainly because they find the telenovelas as dull, lowbrow and unoriginal entertainment (most novelas these days are either adaptations of works from other countries such as Argentina, Venezuela or Brazil, or remakes - known in Mexico as ''refritos'' - of novelas from past decades, some that are not even 10 years old). It also doesn't help that watching telenovelas has become a stereotype of Mexicans. Interestingly, only Mexican telenovelas seem to elicit this reaction, works produced in other countries such as Brazil, Colombia, the United States (those produced by Telemundo) or Europe are either ignored or actually enjoyed and praised by some people in the aforementioned demographics. This attitude is also present in other Latin American countries, with local output being bashed while foreign output is lauded, and has actually made impact ratings-wise, with foreign novelas sometimes getting better ratings than local ones.
* In UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}, soap operas are considered "women stuff" and is hated by almost all men in the country. This hate becomes a trademark in the country: men like football but hate soap operas, women like soap operas and hate football. Although this is slowly changing, with the increase of men watching soap operas, but they are usually mocked by others, since a man watching a "women stuff" in Brazil is considered "too gay".
** Actually, since at least the 90s, this "soap opera is for women" stuff has pretty much became a [[DiscreditedTrope Discredited Trope]] in Brazil. Nowadays, there's heavy backlash against telenovelas, especially the ones by Rede Globo, but for different reasons: many people - both in and outside the target audience - consider that soap operas became too [[EverybodyHasLotsOfSex sexualized]], uninspired and obnoxious in recent years, [[JumpingTheShark with the writers forcing "polemic" scenes and farfetched storylines]] in a failed attempt to draw attention and increase the shows' ratings. Not to mention that people with higher education tend to disdain soap operas, deeming them silly, formulaic and lowbrow entertainment.
** Mexican telenovelas exhibited in Brazil also fall in this trope, with its critics considering them too [[{{Melodrama}} melodramatic]] and [[WorldOfHam overacted]], although there's also some cult following towards them, especially the ones made in the 90s, partly thanks to [[NostalgiaFilter Nostalgia Filter]].
* ''Kid President: Declaration of Awesome''; if you went on Creator/TheHub's Website/{{Facebook}} page you'd see that half of the comments on posts about it were viewers who genuinely liked the main character. The other half were [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks people decrying it as a]] [[SerialNumbersFiledOff rip-off of]] ''Series/CoryInTheHouse'' (though that show simply had the main character living with the president rather than ''being'' the president) and people betting that it would be a {{Short Runner|s}}...which, after The Hub was changed to Discovery Family, [[HilariousInHindsight became true]].
* Two of the biggest, longest running sitcoms ever on Belgian television, which are called ''Thuis'' and ''Familie'', suffer heavily from this. There is a die-hard and big fan base for both series, but plenty of people have heard of both series because of how long they have aired on their respective channels and absolutely loath both shows, decrying that the series ruin Belgian television. The fact that [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162076/ ''Thuis'']] and [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0162076/ ''Familie'']] both have very low ratings on imdb (the latter having an even lower score than some shows in the Horrible/LiveActionTV entry in DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible ) despite having very active forums full of fans speaking about the new things that are happening in the show is a testament to this.
* ''Any'' sitcom shows on networks like Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network gets hit by this by many hardcore cartoon fans, with such common complaints that these network are have ''only'' cartoons and not to have any live-action shows at all. The most infamous being CN Real for an example. Which created ''huge'' backlash on the internet during that time period.
* Anything from syndicator Litton Entertainment will inevitably get this, regardless of what they put out (Jack Hanna being an occasional exception due to [[NostalgiaGoggles nostalgia]]), mainly for holding what's seen as a monopoly on Saturday morning kids' fare, replacing the once-popular SaturdayMorningCartoon with unscripted nature documentaries, cooking shows, and lifestyle shows, all genres by and large considered boring and uninteresting by most younger people, including the intended target audience of teenagers. It was especially painful for fans of the late Creator/{{Vortexx}}[[note]]The last traditional Saturday morning cartoon block[[/note]], whose time space was among those taken over by Litton, alongside ABC's Creator/DisneyChannel reruns and CBS's Creator/CookieJarTV. Occasionally Steve Rotfeld Productions' Xploration Station block mostly seen of Fox stations gets lumped in, but isn't hated as much due to its STEM focus being seen as more interesting (plus it killed off a two-hour block of {{Infomercial}}s so it was a much worthier replacement to both viewers and Fox affiliates).
* In Japan, about any show in NHK Kids, such as ''Series/OkaasanToIssho'' and ''Inai Inai Baa!'', gets this due to being aimed towards preschoolers and infants. The former show, however, does have some viewers who fondly grew up with one of its past incarnations.
* In Belgium cooking shows get this a lot due to being somewhat unavoidable. People outside of the demographic are pissed off that there are so many cooking shows on television and demand them to be removed, seemingly unaware that they do have a demographic.
* Among fans of closing logos, Creator/CookieJarTV gets this because their logo is loud and obnoxious and is plastered over the Creator/DICEntertainment and Creator/{{Cinar}} logos on current re-runs of their shows.

[[folder:Music]]
* {{Boy band}}s in general. It is well-known that many of these bands are manufactured more for looks than for sound. It doesn't help that they traditionally don't write their own music and often have only vocalists in their official line-up, which costs them respect even with fans of the pop genre.
** This attitude goes back a long way. In TheSeventies, [[TheLastDJ Johnnie Walker]] was famously fired by the Creator/{{BBC}} for the first time for his adamant refusal to play hits by the manufactured boy band of the day, The Bay City Rollers, on his prime-time show. Johnnie pointed out he only wanted to play quality music by ''real'' groups. The [=BBC=] disagreed with his stance that the presenter should be free to pick his own playlist and sacked him. [[note]]Johnnie Walker now presents a retrospective 1970's music show for the [=BBC=]. He has mellowed slightly, grudgingly agrees the Rollers are part of many people's 1970's memories, and has agreed to play the occassional Rollers track. He thinks one a year is a good compromise. [[/note]]
** Hanson in particular, from the amount of bile it raised in the non-fan throat. Hanson wasn't even a boy band in the traditional sense, since they at least wrote their own songs and played the instruments themselves (as well as being actually, y'know, ''related'' to each other instead of being manufactured according to some kind of "next, we need a dark-haired Bad Boy" list). Yet because they consisted of photogenic young men who made poppy music, they were lumped in with the rest.
** Music/BackstreetBoys and Music/{{NSYNC}} were notable because they tried to reach for a PeripheryDemographic and were smacked down. Some people were even surprised to learn that these were different bands. To make things even more interesting, Music/JustinTimberlake (from [=*NSYNC=]) ''did'' gain success outside the usual boy-band demographic.
** Music/OneDirection has one, but it's not nearly as large as the other ones. This is mostly because of Justin Bieber's hatedom being so big that instead of moving on to 1D they continued to hate Bieber. This was largely out of fear that he might continue to prosper without them trying to pull him down and/or they gave 1D a free pass solely so they can wipe Bieber Fever off the face of the planet. The ploy worked big time.
** Music/TheWanted and Series/BigTimeRush, on the other hand, do not really have such hatedoms, as their fandoms aren't large enough to spawn one in the first place. Most of their haters are One Direction fans.
* This was also true of the Motown girls' groups (e.g. The Supremes), doo-wop, and a dozen other genres. In the old days, even classical musicians were hired as much for their looks as for their talent. The problem is really that these boys are being picked ''for girls to ogle'', which is a Bad Thing because if girls are ogling them, they're not ogling the young men who make up this particular Periphery Hatedom.
* Pop princesses, such as Music/BritneySpears and Music/ChristinaAguilera, ''may'' have moved out of this category if they managed to grow up with any grace or artistry. Christina Aguilera successfully transferred to other genres, but this resulted in her falling well out of the limelight, so her hatedom has died down a bit. Britney Spears started to die down, but then it flared back up again when Kevin Federline entered her life and the media debacle that surrounded that. She's calmed down since then, and is starting to gain a bit of respect again for moving on with her career.
* Music/JustinBieber, another TeenIdol, has arguably the biggest music periphery hatedom in a long time. The huge media coverage (including being the focal point of one of Funnyordie.com's AprilFoolsDay pranks) didn't help. The hatred of Bieber became so widespread that about half of all Website/YouTube videos, even those unrelated to Bieber, have someone complaining about him in the comments. While there are valid reasons to dislike him based on his actions--from [[NauseaFuel pissing in a restaurant kitchen]] to drunk driving and [[KarmaHoudini getting away with it with nothing but a slap on the wrist]]--he has yet to do anything that really seems heinous enough to justify being voted among the [[http://www.thetoptens.com/worst-people-history/ top three worst people in history]] alongside UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and JosefStalin. The problem is so bad that Justin Bieber's Wikipedia entry is one of the most vandalized pages on the site, so much that it's listed twice in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Most_vandalized_pages Most Vandalized Pages]] list (though whether that was intentional or not is unclear) and listed as semi-protected on the French version of that list.
* Music/TaylorSwift has haters that think she is a soulless sellout. Then there are the people who think she's anti-feminist for singing stereotypical love songs and spending most of her time mooning over boys. She also gets bashed for being a PuritySue (which is especially ridiculous when you consider songs like "[[BreakUpBonfire Picture To Burn]]", "[[BestServedCold Better Than Revenge]]", and "[[IntercourseWithYou Sparks Fly]]"). Though, this has lessened a little bit after she recorded a song for ''Film/TheHungerGames'' movie, singing about something different.
* J-pop, and for that matter Japanese music in general, gets this pretty bad. It is often called "weeaboo music". J-pop is rabidly hated by both J-rock fans and people who aren't fond of Japanese music in general. This is invoked by the anime series ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. It uses an obnoxiously cutesy J-pop song as its opening theme, to enhance its image as a cute MagicalGirl show that older males would hate, and then shocks the viewer with its incredibly dark themes and intense violence. Needless to say, the ending theme is a much more intense J-rock song.
* J-Idol manages to have even more haters than J-pop, thanks to the ContractualPurity enforced by the agencies that not even its rivals dare to implement, the insane BlackShirt fandom who defend the practices, and the criminal element of how it is run by sleazy criminal organizations. And there's how out of touch it is with modern music trends makes it very easily hated by outsiders.
* A lot of non-rock performers, especially in the 1970s, became vilified by rock critics and fans when their songs became hits on pop radio. John Denver and Barry Manilow are two examples of this.
* Backlash against Disco during its heyday in the 70s was so great that there is [[DeaderThanDisco a trope]] named after this backlash. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco_Demolition_Night Disco Demolition Night]] is a famous example of contemporary hatred toward the genre.
** Specifically targeted are Music/TheBeeGees, who were the face of disco in the late 1970s. Many were celebrating in the early 1980s when their amazing hit streak of the late 1970s came to a sudden halt (after 1979's "Love You Inside Out"), but even though they no longer dominated the charts, the Bee Gees -- always well-respected for their harmonies -- continued to sell out concerts, its members (specifically, Barry Gibb) continued to write hit songs for other artists, and in time, their songs that hit during the peak of their popularity began to receive heavy airplay on oldies stations.
** One possible reason that disco continues to be intensely hated is that in one way [[UndeadHorseTrope it managed to remain ubiquitous even after it died out]]. By the time [[PopularityPolynomial 1970s nostalgia swept America in the mid-'90s]], disco had become [[PopularHistory so inextricably identified with the decade that spawned it]] that - for a while, at least - it effectively buried all other (usually more serious or "harder") pop music genres from that time period, from [[PunkRock punk rock]] to prog rock to power pop to early metal. Genuine fans of '70s pop culture were not amused to see it reduced to a laughingstock by ignorant (and often younger) observers who naturally assumed that [[{{Flanderization}} the '70s had given rise to only one, extremely obnoxious style of music]]. Think of it as a sort of retroactive StopBeingStereotypical. (Many fans of '80s music loathe HairMetal for the same reason.)
* NuMetal has gotten a similar treatment. At the time of its debut, it was popular among rock fans sick of the genre being monopolized by PopPunk. The exaggerated aggression of NuMetal, however, eventually burnt everyone out on it.
* Pat Boone as a 1950s-'60s pop idol, since his career was built largely on making the more incendiary forms of popular music such as R&B [[TheMoralSubstitute "safe"]] for white listeners; and borrowing (stealing?) from black musicians white audiences wouldn't listen to. His later position as a Christian conservative commentator did nothing to help this. In fact, Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" was written to be a song that Pat Boone would never cover. It backfired.
* For a period, Music/MichaelBolton received so much bashing that "''Kill Michael Bolton!''" jokes practically became a DeadHorseTrope of their own. And Ryan Stiles from ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' continued to relentlessly make Bolton jokes even after his popularity had waned. ''Film/OfficeSpace'' can't have helped (Die, motherfucker, die, motherfucker, die!). Granted, that was the printer, but Michael has similar feelings about the musician.
* TheWiggles has a hatedom consisting of older children and adults, mostly because many of their songs are for younger children. [[UnfortunateImplications Some also find the idea of men spending time with children creepy]] (before the new, young members, including one woman, replaced the old ones).
* Music/LadyGaga gets this, for many reasons by many different demographics, but, specifically, by non-camp males because of her [[{{Camp}} over-the-top]] refusal to be "conventional". Despite frequent PanderingToTheBase, people wonder why she's not so widely celebrated outside her obvious target demographic. Of course, given the calculated way she behaves and dresses "non-conventionally", it's almost like she's trying for this sort of reaction.
* Rap music in general.
** The genre tends to inspire a generational divide between the Creator/{{MTV}}[=/=]Creator/{{BET}}-watching youth of its fans and their out-of-touch adult parents who take offense to its violent, misogynist themes, can't understand a word of the Ebonics-laden lyrics, and at worst [[HateDumb are unsure if Rap is even music]]. Rap is even the preferred punching bag of older Black leaders who accuse/scapegoat it for [[StopBeingStereotypical promoting stereotypes]] and instilling in its listeners distorted messages about Black culture. It also has a MASSIVE hatedom amongst fans of classic rock, mainly because it's effectively replaced most genres of rock aside from alt-rock among the masses these days.
** Time killed this when the original "{{MTV}} Generation" (who were teens during the '80s and early '90s) turned into parents, though it's still an issue for the older teens and young adults who are the children of the Baby Boomers (who were teens during the '60s and '70s, before rap became mainstream).
** Reggaeton, being a derivative from rap and dancehall, also has got in Latin America a hatedom similar to the one towards rap, on the same demographics and for similar reasons. Although they also get fire from the heavy sexual content of several songs, which adds a lot of MoralGuardians of the ThinkOfTheChildren type to the hatedom.
** ''All'' Black music has been prone to this. Jazz, R&B, and soul also had large Periphery Hatedoms in their time, but their hatedoms at least admitted that the main reason behind their loathing was the race of the musicians. Rap's detractors live in an era where that's not safe to say in public.
** There's a substantial rivalry between metal and rap, though it's mostly one sided, since [[UnknownRival most rap fans are oblivious to it]]. This comes mostly from metal fans believing metal should be the biggest genre in the charts, and blame the popularity of rap for stopping this. They will lament the glory days of Nu Metal, but forget it was just as much a fad as anything else. (Ironically, when metal was at the peak of its popularity in TheEighties, it was in the incarnation of HairMetal, which most of these critics also despise.) In actual fact, many metal fans like rap music and vice versa.
* CrunkCore has the most storied Periphery Hatedom of any genre.
* Music/KidzBop, a series of covers of popular songs sung by little kids with more kid-appropriate lyrics. It is aimed at little kids, and universally despised and panned by everyone older than 10.
** The hatedom can also be spanned from the fact that ads for Kidz Bop play literally ''all the time'' on networks like Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon.
** Musicspace gives the series surprisingly good reviews, but these are mostly parents who bought the [=CDs=] for their kids, plus the site is directly connected to its record label, Razor & Tie. All other sites trash the series mercilessly.
* Music/RebeccaBlack and Music/{{Friday}} are, in some ways, the Music/JustinBieber of 2011. {{Subverted|Trope}}, as she still receives a more [[MemeticMutation memetic]] kind of respect, while the hate for her music is channeled [[LetsSeeYouDoBetter into positive ways]], such as remixes and covers, and self-deprecating videos, such as one where she is visibly embarrassed while watching her "Friday" video. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzfQwXEqYaI this]] "Brock's Dub" parody.
* As white-hot as Music/TheBeatles were in the sixties, they weren't without their share of hatred. Some of it came from their target demographic, such as fans of other British Invasion groups such as Herman's Hermits and the Dave Clark Five or American groups like Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons. But much of it was from older adults who found their music to be more flash-in-the-pan disposable pop, and particularly, MoralGuardians (lampshaded in Allan Sherman's novelty tune "Pop Hates The Beatles"). Hatred from the latter would reach a fever pitch after John Lennon was quoted saying the Beatles were "more popular than Christ", prompting fundamentalist Christians to burn all Beatle memorabilia (Lennon would heavy-heartedly clarify, "I'm not saying we're ''better'' than Christ or ''greater'' than Christ. I'm just saying we're more popular.") But by the time the band had reached ''Revolver'' and ''Sgt. Pepper'', though, showing that they were more than just "yeah yeah"s, even adults had to sit up and took notice, and they began to be seen as the musical pioneers they're known as today. The hatedom even wanted to define the at the time recent term ''beatlemania'' as a form of female hysteria in an attempt to show off that fangirls of Music/TheBeatles had a psychiatric illness that must be treated. Psychiatrics noted this and gave some of those a psychiatric test. The result was, predictably, that they did not suffer from any mental problems whatsoever and the term was redefined to maintain that being a fangirl is normal.
* Music/ElvisPresley is a pretty polarizing figure in Rock & Roll among blacks. Some are appreciative of the attention Elvis brought to the genre among the white community, creating openings for black artists. Others felt he had appropriated the genre to the detriment of black artists who had been doing it long before he did. Elvis gave credit many times to earlier black artists whose songs he covered (to a much greater degree than, say, Music/TheRollingStones or Music/LedZeppelin), but it didn't help that some of his fans believed he actually invented Rock & Roll. Elvis was also hated by some whites for being "too black", making him a [[HalfBreedDiscrimination Tragic Mulatto]] of sorts. And then, there were Moral Guardians who also hated his sound in general … and the fact that he swiveled his hips during his performances.
* HarryBelafonte is a polarizing figure amongst fans of calypso music. Although he brought the music to the attention of an American audience, he's criticised for doing so by watering the music down and generally playing traditional songs, not competing in calypso tents, and crediting other people's songs to himself. However, Belafonte was in fact very respectful towards the musicians and the record company was mostly to blame for the credits issue. He did end up crediting them for his songs. He signed so many calypso artists to RCA that they started a Trinidad division, and he paid them well.
* Music/CelineDion got a fair bit of this, principally due to the overexposure of her hit "My Heart Will Go On" from ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'', but as her profile has diminished in the ensuing years, so has the hate, and many of those who were once part of the hatedom have changed their ways and now appreciate her music.
* CountryMusic:
** In general. Most people who claim to "hate" country seem to hold it entirely to many Southern stereotypes which are far from universal, and have probably never listened to actual mainstream country.
** Music made after the early 1990s, in the eyes of classic country fans and more specifically, purists. Major complaints include the sound and the artistry being little more than bad pop/adult contemporary/arena rock music that has little to no resemblance to country music made prior to the 1980s, and the newer artists getting favor while classic artists who continued to write, record and release new material -- including but not limited to Merle Haggard, GeorgeJones, Loretta Lynn and dozens of others -- began to be ignored by radio and ultimately, the mainstream media. Since rural America has gone from poor to rich, the shift is understandable but still disturbing to some. Meanwhile, younger fans frequently find the classic sounds and music recorded by such pioneers as Kitty Wells, Music/HankWilliams, Webb Pierce and others outdated, unrefined, unrelatable and unlistenable.
** Bro-country music has earned a ''huge'' hatedom from people who absolutely hate its generic lyrics about sex, tailgating and drinking (Cole Swindell, Music/FloridaGeorgiaLine, Music/LukeBryan, Music/BlakeShelton), as well as certain bro-country artists who eschew actual country production in favor of electronic beats and pure pop production (Chase Rice and Music/SamHunt, although many people will begrudgingly admit that Hunt is a skilled lyricist). Female artists who have made songs that actually support bro-country stereotypes ([=RaeLynn=], Maggie Rose) have also gotten trashing from bro-country haters as well.
* In several countries, folkloric music, either from the own or from their neighboring countries, by people who are more into "mainstream" music (read: rock and pop). For example, at one time in Venezuela there is the trifecta hate from people of the capital and neighboring cities towards joropo (because of being perceived as backwards music from country simpletons, and for having been used as a filler during a period of obligatory 1:1 ratio of imported/local music), Zulian gaita (because of saturation of the airwaves on Christmas time and extreme regional thematic) and vallenato (because of its association with Colombian immigration, often stereotyped as criminals and violent bus drivers who like to play music in their vehicles on an ear-damaging volume).
* Music/SouljaBoy managed to get this from ''three'' demographics -- Veteran rappers (most notably Music/IceT) and their fans who felt his simple "how to do a dance" raps were ruining the genre, anime fans who were horrified by his [[IAmNotShazam terribly]] [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer ill-informed]] attempt to make a song about how [[ComicsRuleEverythingAroundMe he was]] [[OneOfUs an anime fan himself]], and ironically, actual veterans. Why the last? A song called "Let's Be Real," wherein he brags about how he got rich with his DIY approach to music and says "Fuck all the army troops."
* Dubstep, a genre known by many people for its overusage of crazy electronic beats and bass, has been summed up by AbandonKansas frontman Jeremy Springs as "the disco of now." Think about that for a second.
* The late Music/MichaelJackson used to gather quite some flak in his time, mainly due to the scandals he got into, for being a man-child in general, and for just being around kids. Notably, the haters often overlap with those who hate Barney as well (as noted on the documents at Jihad.net). This has mostly died down since his passing, but some people still have hate on him.
* The Christian Rock genre is the pun of many jokes, except for certain bands like Music/{{Skillet}}, even from Christians.
* [[HeavyMetal Metal]] gets a lot of hate from multiple camps, such as those who consider it Satanic or those who stereotype it as loud, angry screaming and loud noise. Then there's the intergenre rivalry, with [[PretenderDiss "true" metal fans disdaining]] both the HairMetal groups and their fans, expressing outrage that this pop garbage dares to call itself "metal." What they apparently forget is that "heavy metal" was a term coined by the critics, not by the fans or the band members themselves, and it just became generally appropriated. Furthermore, bands such as Music/MotleyCrue and Music/Poison are increasingly no longer thought of as metal anyway, now that more extreme bands have gone mainstream.
* Screamo in general, moreso second wave bands such as BringMeTheHorizon and PierceTheVeil, seems to have picked up a very vocal and cranky hatedom from metalheads who the bands never courted anyway.
* Music in Brazil has hatedom from all sides. People who enjoy Rock (especially Heavy Metal) generally hate Brazilian music to the point of not considering it part of Brazilian culture, but just trash. People who enjoy Brazilian music generally hates Rock (especially Heavy Metal too) saying it's just people screaming and not singing. Also, they think people who enjoy Rock are just a bunch of [[BasementDweller nerds]] and [[VirginityMakesYouStupid virgins]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Nickelodeon]]
* Almost any new show, animated or KidCom, on Nickelodeon will be despised by older fans of the channel for their common use of ToiletHumor and pandering too much to the "tween" demographic that they are not a part of.
* ''Series/BellaAndTheBulldogs'' gets enough sexist and racist male hate for making a girl part of the football team...but the hatedom grew after it was discovered that one of the writers had also written and directed an adult movie about an interracial affair.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'' received attacks from older Nickelodeon and Nicktoons fans for its very premise, use of {{dubstep}}, and animation, ''all before the show even aired.'' Once it did air it got a lot worse, though there are some adult fans who will defend it.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheBrothersFlub'' falls into this due to its horrendous theme song, trippy and random humor, and ugly-looking characters. Those reasons might have something to do with the show being [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes so dang obscure]].
* ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'': Particularly to those who hate being treated like they have [[ViewersAreGoldfish the memory of a goldfish]]. [[note]] There's some {{truth|in television}} to it though; Research carried out by Scholastic in the '80s concluded that viewers learn better through participation than through rote repetition, and some schools of thought do feel that repeating something so often is akin to underestimating and thus looking down on a toddler's intelligence level. Also, sports players will probably tell you that repetition is the mother of all skill, but that's different.[[/note]]
** Dora hate is played with in ''ComicStrip/ShermansLagoon''; the titular shark, a middle-aged male, loves the show because [[WhoWouldBeStupidEnough he's just that stupid]].
** ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''[='s=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAKR-OXq6hU parody]].
** The Stringini Bros. have a song entitled "Dora No More" which describes Dora being mauled in various ways.
** ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues'', another pioneer of participation-based {{Edutainment}}, gets some of this, although WAY less than Dora because of teens and adults' liking of human narrator Steve's {{Adorkable}} charm and for the show having a lot of great NostalgiaFilter.
** Dora is a ''frequent'' parody target amongst [=GoAnimate=], along with ''WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}''.
* The first few seasons of ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' are in general well-liked, or at minimum seen as [[SoAverageItsOkay average]]. However, much like ''[=SpongeBob=]'', the reception of future seasons is rocky due to personality changes, {{flanderization}}, and focusing on controversial new characters instead of old favorites. Fans differ on when the series "[[SeasonalRot became bad]]", however, you will rarely find someone who has enjoyed every season thus far. Many think the series has overstayed its welcome and are mad that it's outlasted "better" Nicktoons.
* ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum''. If you check out a thread asking for opinions on the Nickelodeon message boards for this show, they'll range from good to mediocre. Website/IMDb and the tv.com website provides us with much more insightful, though, to say the least, critical reviews. Also, anything that's not an actual episode of the show, but, for example, the intro or some fan videos on [=YouTube=] will be literally flooded with hate comments. It has its fans, though.
* ''WesternAnimation/GlennMartinDDS'' for being a [[ClicheStorm hurricane of cliches]] and an adult show airing on a kids' network (technically, it was on Nick's late night block Nick at Nite, but still came on at an early enough point where kids could watch it).
* ''Series/MarvinMarvin'', partly due to its UpToEleven ToiletHumor, for being very unoriginal, and for being another [[WebVideo/{{Fred}} Lucas Cruikshank]] vehicle. The huge backlash eventually led to it being canceled after one season as part of the network's continual executive foot-shooting to keep up with Disney. You could've practically heard the massive sigh of relief from the Hatedom when it was announced that this was Lucas Cruikshank's last project for Nickelodeon.
* ''Literature/MaxAndRuby'', partly due to a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop. It even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ry6xejgRlF4 appeared on]] ''WebVideo/TheAngryGrandpa''.
** Equally abundant are complaints about the cheap animation, Max being a KarmaHoudini and Ruby being ridiculously bossy.
* The ''WesternAnimation/MonstersVsAliens'' TV series for being another useless tie-in for Dreamworks Animation and having significantly less well-done CGI than its film proper.
** To a somewhat lesser extent, the ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' and ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' TV series are hated by some fans of the [[WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}} series of movies]] [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda they originated from]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MrMeaty'' gets a TON of this, mainly because of the fact that it's a GrossOutShow with FoodPorn and ugly puppets.
* ''Nick News'', a news show aimed at elementary through high school aged people, gets a considerable amount of hate from people who consider it boring. Nevertheless it [[LongRunner lasted over twenty years]].
* Of Nickelodeon shows, 2013's ''Nick Studio 10'' received an irrational hatedom because of its un-traditional interruptions of programming (right in the middle of episodes with random videos that had no rhyme or reason, although the block was mainly made up of the usual ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' marathons the network has [[AdoredByTheNetwork become addicted to]], so unless you're completely new to the show, you knew what was happening anyways), stunts and skits which wasted food, ToiletHumor, and some rather overheated accusations of animal abuse, though the actual audience either enjoyed it or rolled their eyes and waited them out because they were there to watch a show, not the continuity between. It may have developed into a sane block eventually, but a hacking of the show's Twitter account with racist content, social media harassment of the cast, YouTube videos criticizing it made by viewers well out of their demographic (The Archfiend was the most infamous hater of the block and was in his '''thirties'''), and the show's Facebook moderator just giving up made it too onerous for Nickelodeon to continue it. After a Labor Day 'best-of' episode promising the return of the block, the block never returned and the cast moved onto projects outside the network, and who could blame them? As of 2016, Nick has not launched any other live hosted blocks, likely scared off completely by the ''Studio 10'' experience.
* [=NickMom=] started out as a new block on the Nick Jr. channel in 2012 centered on mom-focused humor and such to give them a respite after having to tolerate their toddler's continuous ''WesternAnimation/PeppaPig'' obsession. To social media critics who don't understand that a new network's first schedule will never become permanent, it was like ''Franklin'', ''Dora'', and ''Blue's Clues'' were taken out back and shot, replaced by inappropriate mom-focused humor despite multiple content warnings. Adding to the hatedom were several minor controversies, such as having an insensitive blog post about those affected by Hurricane Sandy, using photos of children without permission on their blog, and airing a skit titled "Bake Sale" which caused outrage among parents who felt the skit was [[DudeNotFunny mocking children with food allergies]], successfully managing to get it pulled from both the block and its website (you can watch it [[http://vimeo.com/37078192 here]] and judge for yourself.) The ratings (low as they were), however, eventually sorted things out; the funny stuff and movie reruns worked, the vulgar stuff didn't, and by 2014 [=NickMom=] became more benign (with only the occasional sex joke or edited R-rated romance movie here and there), with Disney Junior, Sprout, and Netflix easily happy to take the homes that don't want to watch [=NickMom=]. Eventually, though, those who were still dissatisfied with the block won; the block was discontinued to the relief of its (by then mostly faded) hatedom on September 28, 2015 (and by then if you wanted to take down 90's romance films and ''Series/{{Parenthood}}'' reruns, you just looked petty), with regular Nick Jr. programs taking its place.
* ''WesternAnimation/PlanetSheen'' gets attacks from fans of the ''[[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius Jimmy Neutron]]'' franchise for {{Flanderiz|ation}}ing Sheen from a relatively normal [[TheDitz Ditz]] to a TooDumbToLive one, removing his obsession with Ultra Lord (after "Cutting the Ultra Cord"), and having none of the other Jimmy Neutron characters appear (aside from Carl in the episode that introduces [[IdenticalStranger Doppy']]s character), having {{exp|y}}ies of them instead.
* ''WesternAnimation/RabbidsInvasion'', for basically being NOTHING but the Rabbids doing something and saying "BWAAA!" all the time. It's actually [[HateDumb it's more than that]]; the Rabbids go into random places discovering new things, and they do say "BWAAA!", but not too much. For the most part, it's SoOkayItsAverage, but it's been compared to ''Teletubbies''. It's also hated by haters of the ''Raving Rabbids'' games since [[SpotlightStealingSquad the Rabbids managed to get a TV series over]] Franchise/{{Rayman}} himself (though ''Rayman'' [[WesternAnimation/RaymanTheAnimatedSeries actually did have a cartoon that was only four episodes long]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' for taking gross-out to the extreme. However, while the original series has a devoted cult following, ''Adult Party Cartoon'' gets far more hate due to being more gross than the original, having insanely poor writing, Ren being [[TookALevelInJerkass even more cruel than his original counterpart]] and being John K.'s saddest attempt for get revenge on Nickelodeon for firing him.
* ''WesternAnimation/RocketMonkeys'' for its excessive [[GrossoutShow grossout humour]], unappealing visuals and animation, and having one of the worst cases of DesignatedHero in WesternAnimation.
* Initially, ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'' was accused by many people for being a rip-off of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' and ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' and upon premiering was berated for having too much toilet humor. (The first episode was notably about a ''butt transplant'') Even before it premiered, it was hated for ''actually interrupting shows'' ala the aforementioned ''Nick Studio 10'' to show promos for it. However, the show eventually [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] and gradually gained a noticeable PeripheryDemographic over time. People were even disappointed when it was cancelled. Many of the first season's episodes [[VindicatedByHistory are now mostly seen as]] SoOkayItsAverage. (Though some episodes, particularly the infamous and nonsensical "Fart Baby" episode are still widely disliked.) It still has a number of detractors, though, so it's not completely an aversion to this trope.
* As popular as it is, it seems that ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' (despite Seasons 1-4 being ActuallyPrettyFunny) is here among older fans of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}, and those who only liked the first three seasons, who are just sick of the show and wish it would be ''cancelled'' to make room for many other better Nicktoons, and/or the first three seasons. Then there's the hatedom coming from FandomRivalry. Fans of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' are well-aware that the ExecutiveMeddling that brought the sponge to popularity is also the crushing blow to their beloved show, and thus react accordingly with HypeBacklash.
* ''WesternAnimation/TUFFPuppy'', largely due to it being a ClicheStorm. Doesn't help that during its time, [[HypeBacklash people said it was a rare 2010s Nicktoon that was actually good]].
* ''WesternAnimation/YakkityYak'' for being a WidgetSeries and having everyone in the show (except Keo the Pineapple) be a complete moron, or unlikable, or [[BreadEggsBreadedeggs a completely unlikable moron]].

[[folder: Performance Art]]
* Psychics and mediums have a huge {{Hatedom}} within the community of stunt performers and illusionists, who hate that they have to work hard to get the success that these people almost immediately and undeservedly have. One notable hater is the famous magician ''Harry Houdini'', who spent a lot of his time debunking and rationalizing all of the supposed ''supernatural'' and ''spiritual'' stuff that these psychics and mediums threw at them. Even now there are still actual people (such as James Randi) that hand out prizes to people who can prove to actually have supernatural powers.
* The poor, put-upon StreetPerformer. These folks obviously represent a niche entertainment, and most of them put on "walk-by" acts instead of roving around, meaning that one can easily avoid them simply by walking on the other side of the street or just looking away. This doesn't stop the proliferations of massive hatred of this art form ([[EveryoneHatesMimes mimes]] get it the worst, of course, but organ grinders and even legitimate musicians are also not immune). Indeed, there are city-dwellers who seem to [[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence resent the very]] ''[[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence existence]]'' of street performers. If you press them for reasons, it might be "I should be able to look wherever I want without having to see one of them!" or "They're scaring away the tourists who spend the money our community desperately needs!" or "They're all hippies/bums/[fill in socially marginal eyesore here]." Of course, some street performers do put on sexually explicit or politically radical skits, so it's easy to understand why people would find them threatening.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* ProfessionalWrestling itself. See the DeaderThanDisco [[DeaderThanDisco/ProfessionalWrestling page]] for more.
* A number of old school fans in general also have expressed dislike for current day wrestling in general, due to adult-themed storylines, use of foul language, scantily clad female performers, [[WouldHitAGirl male-on-female violence]], the prevalence of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, and wrestlers who have little to no actual wrestling skill and/or respect for the sport in general. A few intensely hate wrestlers and other performers who are primarily used to attract children but have no or less appeal to traditional fans (also due to said performers usually having limited skills and/or given cartoonish, over-the-top gimmicks). Others, especially some veteran performers, have been distressed at the breaking of kayfabe and revelation of the sport's inner workings, while others have criticized the demise of the territorial wrestling setup. VinceMcMahon's World Wrestling Entertainment has gotten a large share of the blame for all of this.
* Old school WWE fans (and many Wrestling/AttitudeEra fans) seem to particularly loathe the character of Hornswoggle, whose matches border on slapstick comedy and seem to exist for the sole reason of attracting the attention of small children. The Great Khali is a similar example.
* Characters regarded as overbooked supermen, primary and most controversial example being Wrestling/JohnCena. Wrestling/RandyOrton and Wrestling/{{Sheamus}} are examples as well.
* Many male fans find the Divas' matches boring. Well, unless you're at the event, you don't have to watch them - and even if you are, you could just go to the bathroom or get a hot dog. The arguments tend to stem from: the matches are too badly fought to entertain "purists", and the girls aren't slutty enough to drag in the "letches", so they usually end up in the "meh" zone.
* Purists resent the fact the WWE has no real interests in making a legitimate female division, and find the current iteration of the Diva division to be reeking of UnfortunateImplications. That and the fact they insist on hiring models instead of athletes. Wrestling/{{TNA}} has started to get the same complaints as well. There are also disenfranchised Diva fans who remember its short Golden Age in the early 2000s, when the Divas started to get serious about wrestling, starting with Wrestling/{{Lita}} and, unfortunately, Wrestling/TrishStratus.
* A different set of purists who will hold a former model's past career against her even if she becomes a good wrestler. Others will get this even when they've never done modelling before. Wrestling/TrishStratus herself experienced this early on and had to start taking chair shots to shake off the haters. Wrestling/KellyKelly is an example as many people will read her name in a match and automatically label it as bad without even bothering to watch it. A lot of this might be due to the perception that the female championship has been cheapened since 2007 by putting it on a revolving door of Divas instead of having mainstays like it once did. There's also the argument that certain Divas get much more attention than they deserve, at the expense of Divas who are at least as good. Take Wrestling/TorrieWilson, Wrestling/StacyKeibler, and Jackie Gayda, for instance. They weren't the best in the ring, but they at least entered WWE with ''some'' wrestling experience. Yet they barely got near the Women's Championship, much less won it, and all too quickly saw their careers slide into irrelevance. Considering that, how fair is it that Kelly Kelly comes to WWE with ''no'' wrestling experience and gradually takes over the entire division, much like Trish had a few years before?
** More recently comes Eva Marie, who is not unpopular with fans of Series/TotalDivas but reviled by actual wrestling fans. A lot of this, frankly, is hard to understand. One can't really argue that [[StopBeingStereotypical "Eva Marie is making the Divas look bad"]], since she's much more of an exception these days than a rule. Besides, Eva hardly ever shows up on ''Raw'' or ''[=SmackDown=]'', so if you watch the "real" wrestling shows you're usually not in any danger of having to watch her.
%%* Let's just say there's a reason the trope XPacHeat exists.
* Then there are those - StayInTheKitchen types, mostly - who are annoyed at the fact that women's wrestling exists at all, asserting that the only thing girls should be doing in the ring is holding up the round cards (which hasn't happened since wrestling made pains to distinguish itself from boxing) and deriding female wrestling as "just more modern/revisionist/politically correct crap of the '90s", etc. - apparently not realizing that [[OlderThanTheyThink there have been female professional wrestlers (1930s) for almost as long as there has been professional wrestling itself (1920s, at least in the form we are familiar with today)]]. The fact that WWE did not heavily promote its women's division until the late 1990s - and even then mostly for {{Fanservice}} - may have contributed to this attitude, especially among men who were only casual wrestling fans.

[[folder:Sports]]
* Golf. From those who aren't fans, it's regarded as monotonous, luck-based, aristocratic, unathletic (since some people just drive carts to wherever the ball is instead of walking), and associated with square old rich people in clown pants. Even if you don't use a cart, it's widely not considered to be particularly "athletic". Dave Barry once discussed it by breaking down the calories burned into various categories like "sauntering," "squinting," and "saying things like 'You certainly did double bogey that mashie niblick, Ted! Ha ha!'" For ironic points, in order to combat the idea that golf isn't athletic, there are rules regarding the use of carts on the pro-circuit, mainly that unless you can prove beyond reasonable doubt (seriously, you jump though a ridiculous amount of hoops) you can't walk the distance involved, you walk the course. This leads to many people, who happen to catch a few minutes of golf on TV, to question why the players don't just ride in the carts to help speed the slow game up. Its image as the pastime of the classist, privileged elite (despite the highly [[TokenMinority contrarian]] [[TigerWoods face of the sport]]) certainly does not help matters.
* Sailing. It's viewed as a very upper-class activity, due to the cost of owning and maintaining a boat, as well as associating "sailing" with cruise ship vacations, even though the two are nothing alike.
* Equestrian sports. Like sailing, they're generally perceived as elitist and upper class. In the case of actor Creator/ChristopherReeve (who was permanently paralyzed after falling off a horse), the hatred got so intense that some people annoyed by his activism on the part of the handicapped implied that Reeve ''deserved'' to have it happen to him.
* Cricket, especially as it takes day to complete what is called a "test match". In the reverse though, the faster [=20Twenty=] variant that intends to make the game relevant for the Internet generation is cited by traditional cricket fans as the sullying of the sport.
* Motor sports in general. They are perceived as boorish, lower class, anti-intellectual sports which are dangerous, waste fuel, and pollute the environment.
* NASCAR, for detracting the athletic element from sports for part of it; and its common association with rednecks for the other. Others simply find it boring, since at bottom it's just a cluster of fancy cars driving around and around for hours - really not much more than what you'll see on a particularly busy freeway system.
* Cardio kickboxing is one of the biggest crazes among fitness aficionados and shows no sign of dying down, but it continues to get a lot of hate from formal practitioners of martial arts for diluting the practice. While many pioneers of the craze, such as Billy Blanks and Chalene Johnson, ''are'' in fact, legitimate martial artists, the fact that people started becoming instructors with no formal background means they risk teaching bad form to students that not only distracts them from effective fighting techniques should they ever need to defend themselves, but actually runs the risk of students ''hurting'' themselves doing the moves as exercise.
* ''Competitive'' kickboxing has gotten hatred from some MoralGuardians. The most common accusations is that it has stripped martial arts of their [[MartialPacifist once-typical hallmark of restraint and peaceful ideals]], and turned the whole ordeal into a spectator sport dedicated to feeding the audience's love for violence. [=John McCain=] called it "human cockfighting." However, again, the opposition has done little to dampen the enthusiasm of its fans.
* Sumo wrestling; usually because it epitomizes HardGay to some people, and to others because it inspires a lot of "fat-men-in-diapers" jokes. If you see any depiction of this sport outside Japan, it is likely to be parodic in nature.
* Cheerleading, due to the amount of [[TheCheerleader negative stereotypes associated with cheerleaders]] and because it is a stereotypically female sport (a criticism often raised by [[StrawFeminist feminists]], ironically enough). Many will even deny that it ''is'' a sport, when in fact it requires mastery of a great many physical challenges and is actually more dangerous than most of the "jockier" sports.
* The NBA attracts its fair share of hatedom from "purists" or old school fans who feel the league has been over-commercialized or because of the lower scoring of this era, over-empathetic on defense, hockey fans who feel the media focuses too heavily on basketball at the expense of their favorite sport, and racists who find the NBA to be a convenient way to side-vent their prejudices (if the person uses the word "thug" or any variation in describing why they don't like the NBA, they're usually fall under the last category).
* Ice hockey, which is perceived as violent, dangerous and lionizing negative masculine stereotypes.
** Double for American football, which often goes hand-in-hand with [[{{Hatedom}} negative perceptions]] of [[{{Eagleland}} American culture]].
* Association Football (soccer for Americans), because of a reputation for violent, riot-happy fans and whiny, injuring-faking players.
** Soccer also gets a lot of hate from fans (or proponents) of other sports in countries where it (soccer) is dominant, this ironically mirrors the attitude many US soccer fans have towards the "big four" (Baseball, Basketball, Hockey and American Football). Of course [[JerkassHasAPoint it does]] take away (usually limited) media attention and more crucially television money from other sports such as Handball
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Players of tabletop role playing games, sometimes referred to as games "with dice that have more than six sides", such as ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'', or ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', or ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' (also including some card-based ones, the most famous of which is probably ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''), will be assumed to be [[HollywoodNerd antisocial losers]]. The reverse is also true just as often, with detractors generally seen as antisocial soap opera watchers. Unsurprisingly, one of the most common and well-known perpetrators of this attitude are [[EvenNerdsHaveStandards hardcore video game players]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Monopoly}}'' itself gets a lot of hate from the Euro-gamer and "serious" board-gamer crowd. There are also some, both left-wing and right-wing, who know the original game was intended as a scathing satire on capitalism (though it was really only accurate to the late-19th century, pre-antitrust Robber Baron era). Right-wingers don't like it for having been a leftist caricature of a market economy and leftists don't like that it's now one of the biggest mass-marketed corporate products ''ever''. The political hatedoms are especially odd because Monopoly was not intended to be a critique of the free market at all (which arguably didn't even exist in its present form when the game was created), but of the old protectionist and consolidationist economic model that is despised by left-wingers and (most) right-wingers alike. Meanwhile, board-gamers don't like it because hardly anyone actually plays it by the real rules, and "house rules" generally tend to drag out the game past the point where it stops being fun. That's bad enough, but it's also so ubiquitous that board-gamers (with some justification) fear anyone hearing "board game" is likely to first think "Monopoly" and then "I'd rather have root canal without anesthetics."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Musicals receive hatedom in spades, in addition to an array of [[FanHater fan haters]]. The stereotype of thespians being CampGay is a good indication of how strong it is. However, there are ways to work around this (''Theatre/AvenueQ'' is an example, for its ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''-like humor and its being a parody where [[Series/SesameStreet the use of songs actually makes sense]]). Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors and Theater/RockyHorrorPictureShow also aren't as despised by non-theatre fans.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* Whatever the designate "hot toy" of Christmas is. There seemed to be an exceptional amount of hate towards the Furby in particular because ''it just wouldn't shut up''.
* The ''Cabbage Patch Kids'' dolls were also pitched as a Christmas must-have and particularly reviled by people who were sick of seeing them everywhere. Film director Don Mancini was one of these people. His response? [[Film/ChildsPlay Chucky.]]
* Toys/BeanieBabies, although most of the hate was directed at the PeripheryDemographic of housewives who stored them in glass boxes as collectibles, not the little kids who just wanted to play with them as toys. Then again, there were also a lot of parents sick of shelling out so much money for the things. Even the people who ''delivered'' Beanie Babies to retailers (often UPS employees) hated them due to being constantly harassed by collectors asking if they had any of the new releases. A semi-famous {{urban legend|s}} even stated that said delivery people had to wear tags that said "Please Don't Ask If We Have Beanie Babies" just so they wouldn't get harassed.
* ''Polly Pocket'', from the little boys for whom they were never intended.
* Remember ''Tickle-Me-Elmo''? People donated to be the driver of a bulldozer that ran one over, and sold thousands of tickets to a front row seats of said event. There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjGhy-pKuaA video]] of one of the more advanced models being burned to a crisp. While still turned on. It's rather disturbing.
** Series/{{MADtv}} did a parody with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7IxliAPjAk Tickle Me Emo]]".
** Cory Doctorow's novel ''Makers'' features "Boogie Woogie Elmo", millions of which were destined for landfills. The titular makers use the sophisticated hardware and robotic capabilities in novel ways.
** Parodied in Season Two of the episodic ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' games with "Torture Me Elmer", a toy which children were encouraged to mistreat. There's a minigame where a vast spill of them has littered the roadways, and you need to clear them off by running them over. There's a certain sadistic hilarity in hearing them beg for mercy.
** JhonenVasquez has a Meanwhile comic about "Tickle Me Hellmo", which has 20 levels of response. They include shooting fire ants, calling Satan to stare at the child at night, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking reciting goth poetry]].
* Name any kind of [[PinkGirlBlueBoy gender-specified toy]]. [[ARealManIsAKiller Boys were supposed to play with stuff like Tinker Toys, soldiers, sports toys, and toy weapons]]. [[StayInTheKitchen Girls were supposed to play with dolls, playhouses, kitchen utensils, and pretend-telephones]]. Watch as the girls think the boys' stuff is stupid while the boys think the girls' stuff is stupid without any reason. Watch any child who averts this get labeled as gay without any reason.
* [[PinkProductPloy Pinkification (colouring all girls' toys in bright pink)]] has a broad hatedom outside its core demographic.
* ''HeroFactory'' for many ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' fans, mostly since the sets and story don't cater to a PeripheryDemographic in the same way its predecessor did. Bionicle itself has this in the form of thousands of adult fans of LEGO.
* {{Franchise/Barbie}}.
** Everyone loves to write all sorts of long essays about how she's "a freak of nature" [[note]] Wouldn't Raggedy Ann, with her naturally red dreadlocks and triangle for a nose, also qualify? [[/note]] and a "walking stereotype of what a woman is supposed to be" ([[FairForItsDay somehow ignoring Barbie appearing in countless white collar or even blue-collar jobs]]), and people often refuse to buy their daughters or relatives Barbie dolls for fear that a doll will somehow instill a negative body image in them. (Like the doll itself is the sole cause in the first place, as lampshaded in ''ComicStrip/BabyBlues''.) Ask around the internet and you'll probably find a lot of people, even girls (especially girls), who decapitated and mutilated Barbie dolls when they were little. Barbie ''is'' a stereotype of what a woman is supposed to be. Just a different stereotype: specifically, some kind of blonde, tanned, superwoman.
** If you were a boy and played with a Barbie doll, then you immediately had to transfer schools. Unless, that is, you did stuff like strap her to a model rocket and attempted to launch her into outer space or did all sorts of violent acts to her such as dropping a bowling ball on her or trying to melt her with a magnifying glass.
** Poor Mattel. It seems that no matter what they do with the Franchise/{{Barbie}} franchise, they'll end up getting flak for it. One scheme in giving Barbie a positive light is ''Hello Barbie'', a doll that could do advanced speech recognition and speech synthesis to answer questions posed to her by the owner and connect to Mattel's server (for MoralGuardians filtering) over the Internet via Wi-Fi to get information. The intention here is to show that girls can be smart, allowing a child to look to Barbie for help with homework if no one else who can help is around. It immediately gathered flak for being a ''privacy invader'' (despite Mattel assuring that no personally identifiable information on the owner will be stored on their server, and only certain non-critical information like the owner's name is stored in the doll itself) and white hats immediately started pointing out how the doll can be hacked to say things of their choice, not by hacking the doll itself, ''but by hijacking the ISP's domain name server'' (which will allow them to take over ''any'' internet connected program, including the humble web browser, and that's assuming they managed to reverse engineer the doll's communications protocol first). Nevermind that Microsoft, Blackberry, Apple and Google have done this with Cortana, Assistant, Siri and OK Google respectively with no backlash whatsoever, and that toys like that are pretty common in Japan and had not have any issues in that country. And hobbyists all over the world, including in the US itself, have been hacking up dolls that do just that, ''and those have no filtering whatsoever''. And when they put that same technology into a different toy (a Fisher-Price stuffed bear), ''the first batch of said toy sold out within days of launch''. It seems that the real problem here isn't about privacy or protecting little girls, but ''Barbie can't be smart''.
* The ''Toys/{{Bratz}}'' doll line received lots of complaints. Like Barbie, a lot of them were from people concerned about its target demographic of little girls, and even more so given the Bratz dolls' revealing clothes and thick make-upped expressions. However, there were, once again, a lot of boys (and older or tomboyish girls) who just liked making fun of things little girls liked.
* Not specific toys in particular, but there is a hatred people have towards those who collect toys or even still play with them well into their adulthood.
* Toys made for adults (no, '''[[FreudWasRight not]]''' ''[[IThoughtItMeant those]]'' kind of "toys") fall under this as well. MisaimedMarketing doesn't help either.
* Any "As Seen On TV" type toy falls under this. Partially because they never work as advertised. And, partially because kids tend to constantly beg their parents for it, driving said parents crazy. It doesn't help that said toy advertisements tend to play an obnoxious amount of times. Many reviews of "As Seen On TV" toys on Amazon.com reflect this. Said reviews tell of how the parent's child (or children) begged them for the toy in question, the parent buying them said toy, and then either the toy not working or the child/children becoming bored quickly of the toy.
* Any toy that makes sound that's aimed for young kids. Kids love the noises and will repeatedly press the button that makes them, which will drive any adults or older children in the room mad. A common rule parents set when anyone goes to buy a gift for their kid is to not get anything that makes noise. This often prompts the ''grandparents'' or the ''in-laws'' to get it instead because they don't have to live with them. This is mocked in a strip of ''ComicStrip/BabyBlues'' where Wanda looks over a toy that makes noise that's called "Grandma's revenge", as well as in a DenisLeary routine.
** There is supposedly a Chinese proverb: "If thy enemy wrong thee, buy each of his children a drum."
* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' has gotten this treatment for decades from three different sides. On one side you have people who prefer realistic equine figures and scoff at the pastel, talking anthropomorphic ponies. This has caused a FandomRivalry with series like ''Breyer''. On the other side you have people, especially young boys, who hate it for being feminine and cutesy. Then there's those who're in to colorful horses, but have defected and declared hate on G3.5 onwards due to those not looking anything like horses. Incidentally, those who decried G3.5 onwards defected to Simba Toy's ''Filly'' line, who're now at war with the bronies because some of the latter lashed out at ''WesternAnimation/FillyFuntasia''.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''Franchise/StreetFighter'':
** Some fans of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' will complain about every other fighting game that exists. If it is a 2D one, they'll blame it for being a clone. If it is a 3D one, they will blame it for being a 'button masher'. It's gotten to the point where games that are much more complex than ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' are looked down on by fans. The truth is that the NostalgiaFilter comes into play. In later years, ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' has become this, with every new incarnation of Tekken or ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' being compared unfavorably to it despite being largely different in gameplay.
%% ** When Laura was announced for ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', some Brazilian MoralGuardians don't enjoyed it and other people complained Capcom was over exaggerating Brazilian stereotypes again. This only worsened when Laura got [[{{Stripperiffic}} more revealing clothes]] and moral guardians and some feminists said straight out this is damaging the image of Brazilian woman. Most of complains about Laura's clothes come from either people who don't enjoy games or people who don't enjoy ''Street Fighter''. Brazilian players enjoyed the new character and don't see problems with her clothes.
* ''Franchise/MortalKombat''. Most of the vitriol directed at that game when it debuted in late 1992 came from panicky MoralGuardians and people who would have never played the game in a million years.
* It's very difficult to find anything but a savage, snarky, sarcastic review of any game geared towards young girls, particularly if said title is unfortunate enough to involve Barbie, the Olsen Twins, or some other stereotypically girly franchise.
* E-rated games that are not ''VideoGame/{{Kirby}}'', ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'', ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', or something else that is well known, get this from older players. However, the franchises themselves can suffer from this, as seen below.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'':
** The franchise as a whole got plenty of this during the initial craze's heyday, and you'd still be hard-pressed to find an enthusiastic fan who wasn't a preteen or younger when it first came out. Also, some fans of the [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue earliest]] [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver games]], known as GENWUNNERS[[note]]after the GEEWUNNERS in the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' fandom, below[[/note]], can have this towards some incarnations of the game. Chalk it up to a combination of TheyChangedItNowItSucks, NostalgiaFilter[[note]]considering how glitch-ridden the original games were - even the GoodBadBugs had the side effect of making the game mind-numbingly easy for adult players[[/note]] and this trope, from aging out of the intended demographic. While the games have more universal appeal than, say, [[FleetingDemographic the anime]], they're still made primarily with kids in mind, although from 2013 onwards the franchise has been reinventing itself as an "all-ages" franchise similar to ''SuperMarioBros'' itself rather than a franchise mostly for young children.
** Within the franchise, "cute" Pokémon that are heavily marketed can suffer from this, due to their archetypical KidAppealCharacter traits in a series full of "badass" and "edgy" creatures that have more inherent appeal to older fans. Despite the fact that it still gets plenty of love from older fans, SeriesMascot Pikachu is probably the most infamous example, due to its SpotlightStealingSquad tendencies and its strong association with the anime (which has its own entry on this page); in fact, it was one of the most frequent targets of mockery in early ''Pokémon'' parodies.
* ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' gets this reaction from a small number of game reviewers and fans of other Nintendo series, due to the series' TastesLikeDiabetes aesthetic (the frequent NightmareFuel notwithstanding) and [[ItsEasySoItSucks the easiness of the games]] in order to make them accessible to small children.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and ''VideoGames/{{Kirby}}'' themselves, as well as ''Pokémon'' and other similar series, get this treatment from fans of "dark, gritty" series such as ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'', who dismiss Nintendo's series as being too cheery and kiddy. [[SubvertedTrope But these fans are often kids themselves]], in the mature series' own PeripheryDemographic, who complain about things that they perceive as "babyish" because they think it's cool.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' and ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemFates Fates]]'' are a reversal of how this trope usually works for Nintendo games. The games are very anime-styled and seem to be targeted towards the older {{Otaku}} demographic, but get some hate from fans outside said demographic (including fans of Nintendo's more family-friendly series such as ''Mario'' and ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'') for their anime cliches, controversial subjects and features (including the ability to marry characters in-game), and ''Fire Emblem''[='s=] [[AdoredByTheNetwork allegedly disproportionate amount of representation]] in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game despite being a lesser-known series. The ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'' crossover game takes this even further by having aspects of stereotypical Japanese idol culture.
* ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'' is on the receiving end of this trope from the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' fandom as well for the same reasons. To them, ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' was pushing it but ''Illusory Revelations'' crossed the line.
* The FandomRivalry between the various ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' entries qualifies for this trope. While the games are primarily for casual, friendly play, they also have a sizable fanbase of competitive players, especially for ''Melee''. A sector of the ''Melee'' fanbase vocally derides other ''Smash'' entries for being too casual-friendly and not as exciting to watch competitively as their favored game.
* ''Microsoft [=3D=] Movie Maker'' has [=McZee=], a weird blue guy who really wants to be Barney-but-wackier. He's pretty horrible, and the exclusion of him as a posable character is about the only reason the first four thousand fan-made movies weren't all "[=McZee=] dies in horrible ways".
* The Nintendo {{Wii}} is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]]. Once Nintendo finally did what they had promised to do and expanded console video games outside the 18-24 Affluent Male market, said market declared them the anti-Christ. Even Nintendo's continued development of "traditional" games[[note]] which continue to far outnumber their "expanded market" titles[[/note]] hasn't silenced the hatedom one bit. Of course, the rest of the market seems not to have noticed (much to the chagrin of the 18-24 Affluent one). Among the platform's games, the worst sufferers of this were of course the "expanded market" games themselves: Nintendo's "Wii Series" games directed towards non-gamers such as ''VideoGame/WiiSports'', ''VideoGame/WiiFit'', and others. During the late 2000s, they were a gigantic fad that outsold and were played more than most other games by a huge margin, causing the 18-24 Affluent Male market to declare gaming ruined and fear for its senior-citizen-and-soccer-mom-ruled future. However, as the fad has died, so has the hate.
* Axl from the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series is a bit of an odd case. While he's despised by the series' main fanbase, the small but dedicated PeripheryDemographic of young women just can't seem to resist his boyish charm.
* Hardcore gamers seem determined to hate casual and/or social games. ''Game Informer'' has called titles like ''VideoGame/{{Farmville}}'' unexciting compared to big budget games and accused them of being marketing tools. Given that the creator of ''Farmville'' has openly said the game is nothing more than a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Skinner box]], the accusation that it's a marketing tool is dead-on.
* PC gaming magazines have been [[TakeThat knocking]] consoles for years. Consoles are generally designed for gamers who want less complexity. However, there's tons of overlap, so it's really a case of a VocalMinority of purists.
* Any RPG, except ''VideoGame/DragonQuest''. The "only nerds play them" consensus has led them to be an example of NotAllowedToLikeIt. One of the prime victims is ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
* Western {{RPG}}s tend to get a lot of hatred as well, especially ActionRPG games, which critics tend to complain that "the action ruins the RPG elements". And in an ironic inversion to the above, this genre also has a hatedom for having real-time combat and being too gritty.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyMysticQuest'' tends to attract hatred from people who believe the urban legend that it was why the USA didn't get ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' (or why Europe didn't get ''any'' ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' game) until the UsefulNotes/PlayStation years, as well as the fact that it was actually made specifically to [[GatewaySeries introduce people to]] {{RPG}}s. However, being a UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem game, it ''does'' have a fanbase thanks to the NostalgiaFilter, as well as how some people actually ''did'' play that game as an introduction to the RPG-genre. This tends to overlap with LoveItOrHateIt.
* If the marketing is anything to go by, Toys/{{amiibo}} are intended for kids that want toys of Nintendo characters. However there is a hatedom for amiibo by two groups: Those who think that they are overly-expensive dolled-up physical [[DownloadableContent DLC]], most notably with ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' and ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' amiibo, and those who think that amiibo has way too much focus on stocking the kid-friendly characters like ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', and forgetting the franchises that skew more towards Nintendo's PeripheryDemographic or are outright intended for older audiences (such as ''Franchise/FireEmblem'').
* Any of the big console shooter franchises draw plenty of flak from players who dislike [[FirstPersonShooter FPSes]], PC gamers, and fans of older styles of shooters. The ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' and ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series may be the most common victims, but they are not alone. First-person shooters are also frequent scapegoats of people who hold the assumption that their fandom of "cerebral" games such as ''Franchise/SilentHill'' somehow makes them more intelligent than the primates who play ''Call of Duty'', et. al.
** Which makes for a ''very'' strange inverted hatedom in retrospect, as until the past decade or so you basically ''had'' to have a PC if you wanted to play an FPS due to the limitations of the consoles of the day. Still, even modern consoles' limitations—such as the ever-present gamepad vs. mouse—are picked apart by PC gamers, sometimes deemed as reasons why FPS game design has been dumbed down since the mid-'00s.
** The major pet peeve was that on the side of the FPS crowd, they hated it for how it monopolized shooters into a single uniform genre with very little deviation (Iron Sights/Regnerating Health and CutsceneIncompetence). For the others, they see the shooters as completely strangulating what creativity is left in the industry as game developers are crushed by publishers for not living up to their flagship franchise standards.
* Overly popular and mainstream adult-male-oriented games - most notably ''Franchise/CallOfDuty'', but also annualized sports games such as ''VideoGame/MaddenNFL'' and to a lesser extent ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' - get this reaction from "geekier" and more dedicated gamers, who collectively label them as "[[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Dudebro+Gamer dudebro games]]", criticize them for being RealIsBrown and (for the action games) RatedMForMoney, claim that they cater to the LowestCommonDenominator[[note]]which is one reason ''GTA'' gets a bit more slack in this respect, as its games are considered to be very high-quality and unique[[/note]], and resent the fact that [[HypeBacklash their popularity and playerbase overshadows their preferred "nerdy" games many times over]]. However, similar to the Nintendo example above, many of these haters technically fall within the 18-35 affluent male demographic that the "dudebro" games are targeting, although this doesn't stop (exaggerated) accusations that the "dudebro" games are typically played by [[PeripheryDemographic pottymouthed 10-year-olds]].
* Sonic the Werehog from ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed''. Kids love him, most fans who left ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]'''s intended demographic hate him.
** Cream the Rabbit, too. Beloved by {{moe}} fans for her deliberate cuteness, despised by the older ''Sonic'' fans for having a submissive attitude contrary to the defiant one around which the series was built. This is a case of AmericansHateTingle, however -- Cream was designed around Japanese fans, who enjoy her Manga/YamatoNadeshiko traits, and was never meant to be embraced in the west, whereas characters like [[BadassPrincess Blaze the Cat]] fall more in line of likable female characters outside of Asia.
** The entire ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise got a Periphery Hatedom, including from some of its older fans, though it has less to do with them growing out of it and more with it deviating from what they knew. Those who were ''never'' fans tend to regard it as the realm of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters unnecessary characters]] that inspire lame fancharacters and Rule 34 artists.
** Lots of people in the {{hentai}} community hate the ''Sonic'' franchise as well. Though this stems more from the fact that a lot of Rule 34 artists that draw pornography images of Sonic and co. [[SturgeonsLaw really can't draw]] Rule 34 all that well. This becomes especially obvious if you know that most artists in the community avert SturgeonsLaw.
** The Sonic franchise has also gathered some hatred from fans of other Creator/{{Sega}} franchises because it is AdoredByTheNetwork. Especially because unlike [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} Nintendo's]] [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros main]] [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda three]] [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} franchises]], Sonic is the only franchise Sega has with the CashCowFranchise treatment, and as a result, sales for games from other Sega franchises have suffered due to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the lack of the same marketing and exposure for them]] that was instead put into the latest Sonic games. This is a bigger point of contention with Western fans than Japanese fans since the franchise [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff has more popularity outside its native Japan than within it]], while this isn't the case back in Japan where some of Sega's other current Japanese franchises overtake Sonic's in popularity and may even be Cash Cow Franchises in their own right there and there, only. The NoExportForYou situations these same games may suffer only adds more fuel to the fire some Western Sega fans will have against Sonic.
* EA tried to exploit this with their "Your Mom hates ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2''" marketing campaign. It didn't exactly work; the ''intended'' market responded with "[[SarcasmMode Thanks a lot for casting us all as immature jerks]]. It's not like games don't have trouble with that perception already." It seemed to completely miss gaming's shift in demographics, as explained below.
* Video games in general fell into this category when they became popular during the '80s and '90s. In many cases, there was a notable divide between the children who enjoyed playing them and parents who felt they distracted them from doing more constructive things. Since many of today's parents grew up with them, however, [[ForgottenTrope this is a dying trope]].
* The [[Nintendo3DS Nintendo 2DS]], which removes the clamshell and 3D features and sells at a lower price than the original 3DS, has received a fair number of complaints from adult and teenage gamers, despite being designed as an 'entry-level' system for children.[[note]]The 3D feature is not recommended for children, due to lack of safety testing. The clamshell is the weakest part of the physical design and, therefore, most likely to be broken by small children who haven't yet grasped the concept of "excessive force results in broken toys". The lower price isn't specifically a child-friendly feature, but savvy gamers have noticed that the difference is exactly the cost of ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', a franchise well known for its younger-demographic appeal and with which the 2DS shares its release date.[[/note]]
* The UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars are a recurring example: Those who pick one side have no desire to try anything from the other sides. It's an enforced mindset, as a console is an expensive investment and most can't afford to buy multiple systems.
* Singleplayer vs. multiplayer focus is another general example: People who play multiplayer will often ignore the campaign/story element of the game (if such thing even exists in the game) while people who want to experience the story will hardly want to deal with tiers, griefers, and rage-quitting in multiplayer (if that even exists in the game).
* People who play EA sports games get a lot of hatred of gamers who do not play them. The main reason behind it seems to be [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks that they are the same game in a brand new package]] and the fact that it is blamed for making games more unoriginal.
* Teemo from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is hated by most players due to him having a blind, poison, high mobility, and the shrooms he places all over the place to annoy players. Many gamers kill him as a response. In response to much of the hate to the character, Riot Games has counted how many times Teemo has been killed by players per second.
** ''League of Legends'' itself gets a lot of hate from non-MMO fans, though largely because of its community.
* ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'' is getting this from a chunk of US gamers in general and especially {{Mon}} fans simply because it's [[CashCowFranchise the current big thing]] in Japan amongst elementary school children. It has received a huge FandomRivalry with ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' due to them being perceived as similar.
* In TheNineties there was a lot of scorn from "hardcore" UsefulNotes/PlayStation gamers for series like ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' and ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' that were made to draw young children to the console. They were seen as cash-grabs and shouldn't be popular on a "big kid" console like the [=PS1=]. The hatedom has since become non-existent for most franchises as most current hardcore gamers were fans of the series' growing up.
* Lately very retro consoles like the UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} have been getting dislike from many retro gamers who prefer to ignore consoles before the [=NES=]. People often complain about the graphics and quality of the games, and say only 40+ year old gamers with nostalgia goggles like the consoles.
* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' is the polar opposite of what is expected from shooters: It's very brightly colored, the protagonists [[KidHero are teenagers]], there's a large number of female characters, it's comedic, the violence is non-lethal, there is no voice chat, and there is no (traditional) war or scifi element to it. Naturally this has caused many fans of series like ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' and ''Franchise/CallOfDuty'' to mock the series for being "kiddy" and "not a real shooter". Inversely, many fans of ''Splatoon'' dislike the [[RealIsBrown drab colors]] and [[StopHavingFunGuys overly serious]] nature of ''Halo'' and ''COD''; to say nothing of accusations of CapcomSequelStagnation as opposed to ''Splatoon'' being a new IP.
* Dating sims and visual novels get a lot of flak for being seen as exclusively nsfw and suffering from poor writing. There's also the hate from gamers who don't consider them "real games".
* The main ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series doesn't get this treatment however the spinoff game ''Happy Home Designer'' does. It removes the life sim aspect of the game and focuses on [[AnInteriorDesignerIsYou interior design]]. Many fans were stumped on why anyone would want to play an ''Animal Crossing'' game without the main aspects however there is a market out there for designer games. Despite the heavy criticism it sold quite well in Japan.
* ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}'' gets a lot of hate, though mainly because of the franchise's emphasis on [[MerchandiseDriven figures to expand the gameplay]] and the fact that ''Franchise/SpyroTheDragon'' and Cynder are playable characters.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* ''Webcomic/UserFriendly'' especially seems to provoke unnecessary anger outside of its narrow IT professional demographic.
* Any long running, successful, niche-audience webcomic, such as ''Webcomic/PvP'', ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'', or ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}''.
* [[FurryComic Furry webcomics]] get a ton of flak from non-furries. Note that this does not apply to the hatedom of comics such as VGCats which are intended to read by non-furries as well.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has a pretty substantial one, largely due to the fandom just one day suddenly showing up and invading anime cons in cosplay like an infestation of cockroaches, despite ''Homestuck'' not being an anime. ''Homestuck'' cosplay is outright banned from several smaller anime cons for substantially justifiable reasons[[note]]The grey body paint (not sealed) they wear all over their bodies has caused considerable damage, ruining other cosplayer's costumes just by brushing up against them, and ruining hotel services and materials by sleeping in beds with the makeup on, or using jacuzis or not taking showers to wash it off. Then there are those who intentionally roleplay as the Troll they're cosplaying as, intentionally being rude and malicious to ''EVERYONE'' regardless of being a congoer, staff member, hotel staff, or even the police. Finally, hygienic issues involving carrying around a "Spit bucket"[[/note]] and is considered the primary reason cosplay was banned at TCAF, a dedicated webcomic con. Otherwise, it's sometimes seen as a LoveToHate series often used as a punchline for a crazy fandom. It doesn't help anyone's case that the creator of the series himself won't allow for a dedicated Homestuck convention to exist.
* It is as yet unclear what demographic Christian Weston Chandler was aiming for when he created ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'', but he probably didn't intend it for the folks at Encyclopedia Dramatica and 4chan who trashed it, brought him into the internet limelight, and descended his life even further. And [[http://www.sonichu.com that's just the gist of it]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* Creator/PewDiePie, a name that froths more bile among YouTube viewers than any other. His {{manchild}}ish image, his focus on visceral reactions over humorous dialogue, his [[LullDestruction constant]] barrage of [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl over-the-top]] screams, extreme excess focus on quantity-over-quality when it comes to content, and all manner of his personality come together into something that puts off almost ''everyone'' outside of his tremendously large fanbase to incorrigible degrees.
* Let's Players in general tend to get a lot of hate. Especially from YouTube ranters who believe that their videos are an abominable waste of time and that all they do is recording gameplay footage while saying something. Of course, it's often popular Let's Players like [=PewDiePie=] who get bashed by them; in his case, it's because apparently he's a manipulative money whore. [[note]]Despite popular belief, [=PewDiePie=] has also started several charities and is apparently a humble person. Demographic research unfortunately corrupted his online persona.[[/note]]
%%* ''WesternAnimation/TheAnnoyingOrange'' has one of the biggest hatedoms of any web series.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Those jokes about ''WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}}'' having cancer or being bald from chemotherapy speak volumes. Aside from moms who have had experiences with their children copying the titular character's tantrums, parents make up only a small percentage of haters here--much, much more of the hatedom comes from high school students who simply hate the show for being slow, and 9-year-old GoAnimate users who dislike the show because of the titular character being a whiny brat.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'', which had all of the hatred of people who never watched it a good decade before Barney did. One defunct site even pointed out various chilling similarities while comparing The Smurfs to the KKK, though most haters usually compare them to [[DirtyCommunists communists]] instead (''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' did the latter comparison in a season 4 skit, where the village's sewage line is ruptured and Papa Smurf states they're a communist society and tells Handy to fix it for free).
* ''WesternAnimation/DragonTales'', due to Ord's incessant whining and the somewhat SugarBowl environment that is Dragon Land. And some religions cite dragons as evil, which is why there is [[TheDragon a (negative) trope named after them.]] However, it's starting to get a following, mostly from the NostalgiaFilter type. Another reason for so many people hating it is because many people feel that, for a show about magical fire-breathing ''dragons'', the series is surprisingly lacking in fantasy-based adventure. It doesn't help that many of the things the dragons do in the show (IE: go to school, learn to ride bikes, etc.) would be things you'd expect to see in a show about regular people, not dragons.
* ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'': Part of it is because of the vandalism caused by fans of the show to random pages on TheOtherWiki. But there's a fair amount of hate from non-Christians, too, for being a religious show for young kids (though there is a PeripheryDemographic among the same segment too). ''[=VeggieTales=]'' tends to have enough ParentalBonus (in the form of pop cultural references — e.g., [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the French peas guarding the wall of Jericho]]) to avoid the "babyish" criticism from adults, though. ''[=VeggieTales=] in the House'', on the other hand, has received plenty of criticism for the change of character designs, even before it aired; most of this came from not only the older fans of the show, but from parents of autistic children who cannot adjust to change.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Hopla}}'' is bashed for its LimitedAnimation and boring set-up despite being for ''infants''. (Another case of "Just because it's for kids, it doesn't mean you can half-ass it.")
* Despite ''WesternAnimation/SquirrelBoy'' doing decently with critics and young viewers, the Internet has an extremely vocal hatedom for the show. Frequent reasons for hating the show include "blandness" and simply not being as good as Everett Peck's previous cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}'' (though the two have very different audiences). In fact, some believe that the show's early cancellation was caused by the huge outcry from the internet.
* ''WesternAnimation/SuperWhy'' has a very strong hatedom. Many parents don't like the ViewersAreMorons plotlines, and fairy tale fans hate the Disneyfication of the fairy tales presented to the point of [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad being politically correct]].
* ''WesternAnimation/ToopyAndBinoo'', a Canadian preschool show, has seen complaints from moms and parent groups due to the title characters' frequent [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdressing]] and use of the word "fabulous", leading said moms/parent groups to believe that the characters are CampGay and are presenting homosexuality-related concepts to children too young to make an informed decision on the matter, without an attempt to educate them on the topic.
* ''WesternAnimation/JayJayTheJetPlane'': The planes, helicopters, and staff of Terrytown Airport offer entertainment, life lessons, moral instruction for ages 2-6...and CGI characters straight from the UncannyValley. Additionally, some VHS and [=DVDs=] of the show were released by Tommy Nelson--a Christian distributor, even though the series wasn't originally conceived as a Christian show, to the annoyance of some non-Christians.
* ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'', though probably not meant for anyone over the age of six, has received particular loathing not just from fans of the original ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'', but of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''. Of course, in the latter case it's probably more out of embarrassment than anything else, since ''Tiny Toons'' fans see themselves as cool and fear being lumped in with the ''Baby Looney Tunes'' crowd.
** To a somewhat lesser extent, ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' gained one due to its focus on sitcom scenarios over the zany antics of the classic shorts.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheProblemSolverz'', partly because of its SensoryAbuse. Because of this, its second season was never broadcast on Cartoon Network, and was instead made as a Netflix exclusive [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes before the show was removed entirely from the platform.]]
* The ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' franchise, even ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship is Magic]]'', being aimed exclusively at young girls, has a Periphery Hatedom; even ''Friendship Is Magic'''s PeripheryDemographic rejects it, as seen in the comments of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZpurerF2HM this video]].
** [=MLP:FiM=] does have a Hatedom, because many Rule34 artists thrive on the show. Many people don't even watch it and bash it for being a girl show.
** Before [=FiM=] and the bronies, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyG3'' had hatedom from fans of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' due to the genre switch to SliceOfLife.
** Generation 3.5 is widely-hated by even the most hardcore fans. Particularly, the ''Newborn Cuties'' line is almost universally despised outside of the target audience, mainly because of its childish writing and how the creatures that are supposed to be baby ponies look nothing like their namesake[[note]]The Newborn Cuties range are part of G3.5[[/note]]. Bad enough that G3.5 gathered flak among pony collectors for not looking like ponies, the Newborn Cuties somehow [[UpToEleven managed to take it several notches higher]] into CartoonCreature and UncannyValley range.
** The Periphery Hatedom isn't just an age thing for ''My Little Pony''. Even in the right age range, boys tend to hate and deride it without actually watching it.
** Due to a bunch of [[FanDumb shenanigans]] going around causing {{Internet Backdraft}}s at various sites on the Internet[[note]]These people usually attack forums with fans of toy horses in general, who are fond of G3 and G1 because they look more like real horses than G3.5 or G4[[/note]], sizable groups of ''Friendship is Magic'' haters have formed due to HypeAversion from overzealous Internet fans [[AttentionWhore insisting on bringing up ponies in everything]]. Just take a squint at [[http://derpicdn.net/img/view/2012/8/14/74422.jpg these reactions]] to Pinkie Pie in a ''Franchise/MassEffect'' suit. One can say that ''Friendship is Magic'' has a vitiriolic FandomRivalry with ''every single other fandom there is'', and the series is frequently brought up by other fandoms as cringe and SnarkBait. Hasbro giving in to these shenanigans and pandering to them isn't helping matters.
** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' got an awful lot of flack from bronies before it even came out, simply because it's a HighSchoolAU When it came out, it created the BrokenBase of the millennium over if it was good or not.
* Any cartoon that is targeted towards adults and teens, and specializes in GettingCrapPastTheRadar tends to have a Periphery Hatedom among deeply religious individuals, as well as those who just find the cartoons distasteful or offensive. Examples include ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
* Any cartoon in general that is released in a new decade (especially true with '90s kids) will get some amount of hate from [[NostalgiaFilter older generations]], regardless of the show in question's actual merits. Even popular shows such as ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' will get this reaction from some groups.
* ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' has become loathed by adult Marvel fans who find the show too comedic and immature compared to other Marvel cartoons from the same period, or the comic with the same name.
** Fans of ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'' in particular have a special loathing for it as many feel the show is not a worthy successor to ''Spectacular'', which was aimed at a slightly older audience and was known for its plotting and characterization which ''Ultimate'' isn't. Others simply take their frustration on ''Spectacular'' being cancelled ([[ScrewedByTheLawyers for an unforeseen rights issue caused by the Disney/Marvel deal]]) on it.
** ''WesternAnimation/AvengersAssemble'', which replaced the much-loved ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', receives similar sentiments for the same reasons.
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' can sometimes suffer from this. On the one hand, you have the GEEWUNNERS, who, through a combination of NostalgiaFilter and TheyChangedItNowItSucks, vent their spite towards most incarnations of the franchise (especially newer ones) except the original shows (''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' and its sequel series ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'') -- this trope is blatant when their hate is directed towards the cartoon shows such as the Unicron Trilogy or ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. On the other hand, you have fans of the newer franchises who hate ''Franchise/TransformersGeneration1'' (which is very, ''very'' unambiguously a kids' SaturdayMorningCartoon) due to its {{Camp}} value and HypeBacklash caused by nostalgic fans' love for the original series (a GEEWUNNER or otherwise). Just like ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' above, the franchise[[note]]except perhaps [[Film/{{Transformers}} the live-action movies]][[/note]] is primarily targeted towards children no matter what the older fans say, especially concerning ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' (the cartoon one).
* It'd be easier to say "I liked the Music/ScissorSisters' "Comfortably Numb" cover" [[InternetBackdraft on the internet]] than list all of the tropes involving ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'''s Periphery Hatedom.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeMe'' has an astonishing Periphery Hatedom from both {{Anime}} fans and WesternAnimation fans. Episodes on Website/YouTube are glutted with scathing comments about the [[OffModel poor animation]] and [[ShallowParody horrendous attempts to parody manga]]. Many also point out that better {{Animesque}} series like ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' exist that don't resort to the usual pratfalls that come from Western parodies of anime, and look beautiful. 4chan even called out the series for its [[CriticalResearchFailure glaring ignorance of the medium]].
* ''[[WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop2012 Littlest Pet Shop]]''. But it's [[{{Irony}} ironic]] how most of the haters are [[FandomRivalry bronies]]. The weird thing is that most of the fans are also [[FriendlyFandoms bronies]].
** Being created by the same people that brought us ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'', which isn't as well-liked either (it's considered average ''at best''), doesn't help matters as well. See its entry on this page for some more details.
* Many people who liked ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' hated the U.S. Acres segments, because they were agreed by popular sources such as ''Website/PlatypusComix'' to be annoying and forgettable compared to the well-written and [[ParentalBonus adult-friendly]] Garfield segments. They eventually got a small following thanks to being liked by the strange PeripheryDemographic of ''teenage girls''. Not helping matters was that in the first three seasons, the segments always contained an almost always forced song pertaining to the moral each episode, a la ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids''. While most of these were surprisingly catchy (we're looking at you, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0slGfz_roQU Double Oh Orson theme!]]), even the aforementioned teenage girls believe Wade Duck's are the worst (except I Am A Hero) because he doesn't even sing -- he sounds like his voice actor's just energetically reading the script!
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow'' gets a lot of flack for [[DenserAndWackier being too wild and zany]] as well as [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks the changes they made to the characters]]. These include making Garfield talk with his mouth moving (UncannyValley to some), giving Jon a RelationshipUpgrade with Liz, and [[TookALevelInJerkass turning]] Nermal into a annoying {{Jerkass}} sibling-like character.
* ''WesternAnimation/RandyCunninghamNinthGradeNinja'' has been hit by this; largely from fans of ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' blaming the former for getting the latter ScrewedByTheNetwork.
* ''WesternAnimation/RickySprocketShowbizBoy'' got this when it hit Creator/NicktoonsNetwork in the US, due to the character designs and the Flash animation.
* ''WesternAnimation/WildGrinders'' (from the same American network) also got this reaction for, among other things, its Flash animation and painful attempts at being hip.
* ''WesternAnimation/CoconutFredsFruitSaladIsland'', mostly because many claim it to be a rip-off of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants''. And [[Creator/RobPaulsen one of the main voice actors on the show]] [[OldShame is part of the hatedom]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AlmostNakedAnimals'' is often called the worst of Creator/CartoonNetwork's 2010s crop of Canadian cartoons, possibly even below ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest''. Main points of contention are cheap animation, ugly character designs, a grating theme song, idiot characters, and generic grossout humor. However, ''ANA'' got nominated for one Gemini Award and ''three'' Canadian Screen Awards, has mostly positive reviews from critics, and got renewed for a third season. [[CriticalDissonance That's not often something that happens to a show that gets so much hate.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotboy}}'' is hated by many for [[TheyCopiedItSoItSucks being like]] ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' and ''Anime/AstroBoy''. However, there is a large PeripheryDemographic despite that fact.
* Any show on the British preschooler-oriented channel Creator/CBeebies gets this. Programs shown on the network that have received the ire of many a frustrated parent and/or sibling include The Fimbles and the infamous Teletubbies.
* ''WesternAnimation/SkunkFu'', for recycling the same old plot in most episodes. It's also considered a rip-off of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' and ''WesternAnimation/YinYangYo'', even though ''Skunk Fu!'' was made in 2007 and ''Kung Fu Panda'' 2008.
* ''WesternAnimation/ChopSockyChooks'', for having useless villains and for having the main characters [[InformedSpecies look NOTHING like chickens]]. The name sounding like a possible Asian racial slur to those without an easy reference to the Chinese derivation of 'chook' really doesn't help either.
* A number of modern shows on Creator/CartoonNetwork, both in-house (such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'') and Canadian imports (such as the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/AlmostNakedAnimals'') are also reviled by older fans for their heavy use of ToiletHumor. Seeing this trope in action at all on both channels nowadays is a huge source of HumorDissonance for said fans that may have grown out of it by now. Series like ''Flapjack'', ''Camp Lazlo'', and ''Chowder'' have received better recognition in the 2010s, thanks to them being similar to series like ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', however they're mention still provoke anger.
* ''WesternAnimation/PacManAndTheGhostlyAdventures'', despite being filled with nothing but appreciation for the original game and classic gaming in general both stylistically and in the form of {{Mythology Gag}}s and homages, gets flack from adults because of its [[WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld reinterpretation of the plot]] (despite the original game having had no plot to speak of), in particular the loads of new characters, as well as what some claim is an over-reliance on ToiletHumor (though it doesn't have more than most other animated kids' shows). It still does well with its "target audience," despite the fact they're probably too young to understand a lot of its influence.
* ''WebAnimation/TheAnnoyingOrange'' series on Cartoon Network for living up to the title, and causing older viewers to like the original web series even less.
* ''WesternAnimation/SitDownShutUp'' for having stupid humor, ugly character designs, and being sickeningly boring.
* ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'' gets this from fans of ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'', from people who think it's too hyper and cartoonish, and from typical [=GoAnimators=] who dislike the show simply for its art style[[note]]Clearly, these people didn't really understand what Mister Rogers preached[[/note]].
* Most people who grew up with the Katharine Tozer Mumfie books and/or ''Here Comes Mumfie'' will hate ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'' for overtaking the version they grew up with in popularity, and because it's saccharine. The opposite sometimes occurs with fans who grew up with Magic Adventures of Mumfie-they will prefer that series to the older versions. People who hate the show who did not grow up with the books or the earlier series despise the fact that only one voice does the characters (when Britt Allcroft does the two queens on the show), say that the stories and animation are bad, and find the music saccharine. One {{Google}} Groups member said that all these problems made him want to [[ShootTheTelevision throw a brick at the TV whenever he heard the theme song]].
* Fans of ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}'' hated the animated series because [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks it changed so much from the movie]] that [[FranchiseKiller it destroyed the entire franchise]].
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenageFairytaleDropouts'' got a ton of flak just for its premise and artstyle (the former also getting attacks because of the title creating a few UnfortunateImplications, even though the characters are actually still in high school). Before release, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic bronies]] in particular hated it [[FanDumb merely because]] one of the supporting characters is a non-sentient unicorn who appeared to be there for comic relief. Being released on the heels of Creator/{{Mattel}}'s Franchise/EverAfterHigh series doesn't help.
* Any show that uses a "bromance premise" inevitably gets derided for ripping off ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' (and less frequently, ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'') even if the show in question proves that it's pretty far removed from it; ''WesternAnimation/SanjayAndCraig'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'', and ''Welcome to the Wayne'' being the most frequent targets. Notably, they are all Nicktoons, and most of the folks who slam them are part of ''Regular Show'''s older demographic.
* There are parents who hate ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' due to it having inappropiate things that shouldn't really be in a children's show, and/or thinking that the show's trippy imagery might force kids to take drugs.
* ''WesterenAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'' for the same reasons as ''Yakkity Yak''. Also hated by Nintendo fans because one of the recurring antagonists resembles [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Petey Piranha]] (but with blonde hair).
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans:''
** While the original cartoon has a massive fandom, it also has some hate from older DC fans who loathed that it was [[ComedyGhetto comedic]] and that it was LighterAndSofter than the comics. There was also a backlash against it for using an anime-inspired style. Knowing its [[PeripheryDemographic fandom]], it's a '''very''' minor example, especially compared to its spin-off listed below.
** ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' has a massive hatedom from fans of both [[ComicBook/TeenTitans the original comics]] and [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans cartoon]], due to it being a DenserAndWackier BlackComedy series that portrays the team as a barely-held-together group of loons that abuse each other as much as they do the villains, with the most common complaints from them being that the show is too immature and the Titans behave like complete jerks. It's also attracted a strong hatedom from fans of other Cartoon Network cartoons since it's AdoredByTheNetwork, with it often getting promotion and airtime over several other programs that also air on the network, such as ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'' and ''WesternAnimation/ShaunTheSheep''. WesternAnimation/DCNation fans have a particular loathing for it as the network's favoritism towards it allegedly contributed to the cancellation of ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman''; not to mention it displacing the much-loved ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' and ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries''.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Grojband}}'' gets attacks from the States mainly for having scentless writing and the artstyle being similar to ''Johnny Test'' and ''Total Drama''. Knowing its PeripheryDemographic, this is a rather minor example.
%%* The same thing goes for ''WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}}''. (Please explain this example by its own merits and not merely in comparison to other examples)
* ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo'' is already getting heated backlash on the internet from fans of the past incarnations of the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' series for being more comedy focus, including the redesigns and portrayal of the main characters. The fact that it's coming after the much-loved ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' hasn't helped matters either.
* ''WesternAnimation/OggyAndTheCockroaches'' for being a carbon copy of ''Tom and Jerry''. There's a secondary reason for hatedom for Oggy in Asia, however, which formed due to HypeBacklash of extreme magnitude: The networks didn't consider the consequence of having a show that's already airing on a different network on its own network. Oggy airs on '''all of the big three''' networks in Asia: Disney Channel, Nickelodeon ''and'' Cartoon Network, in addition to several country-specific networks. Understandably, people who do not like the show (or slapstick humor like those presented by TomAndJerry and MrBean as a whole) are having a hard time avoiding it.
* ''Kate & Mim-Mim'' has irked many parents for its main characters being annoying.
* ''WesternAnimation/MrPicklesGoodBoy'' is claimed by many people to be the worst cartoon they have ever seen for its [[GrotesqueGallery ugly characters]] and heavy reliance on {{Gorn}} as humour.
* Although ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' was a massive success amongst viewers and critics during its time, it carries an immense hatedom on the Internet. Reasons have included [[SadistShow mean-spirited and]] [[ToiletHumor immature humour]] and [[JustEatGilligan the nature of the premise]].
* Any Creator/PBSKids show produced after somewhere around 2008 gets this. Shows like ''WesternAnimation/SidTheScienceKid'', ''WesternAnimation/PegPlusCat'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHatKnowsALotAboutThat'' get plenty of vitriol, mostly from your typical audience of [=GoAnimate=] users and people in the [="(GOOD USER)/(BAD USER)"=] community. There ''are'' some exceptions, like ''WesternAnimation/MarthaSpeaks'' and ''WesternAnimation/WildKratts'' (mostly from nostalgia from the Kratt brothers' previous work).
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'' gets this from people who think the characters are bland, find the animation and plotline dull, saccharine characters like the Fobs and it being one of a few shows that lead to the beginning of the end of [[SaturdayMorningCartoon Saturday morning cartoons]] , as complaints concerning shows like it begun the Children's Television Act. A few people in the [=(GOOD USER)/(BAD USER)"=] community and SiskelAndEbert are among the haters of the show. Even the networks that aired it hated it and tried to pretend that it didn't exist by airing it very early in the morning or airing it only once a week, or [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/hollywood/bearscareproof.jpg even did both at once]].
* The {{animesque}} style in some cartoons receives a lot of hate from people who dislike anime, with few exceptions like ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' or ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks''. Even many anime fans will complain about it because they dislike non-Japanese animation, and consider American cartoons emulating the styles poorly.
* There's quite a bit of hate for cartoons aimed at very young girls, like ''WesternAnimation/RainbowBrite'' and ''WesternAnimation/StrawberryShortcake''. Series aimed at older girls like ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/AsToldByGinger'' tend to get more slack, or are even liked, however the reputation of stuff aimed at the early childhood group is quite sour. They're seen as overly saccharine, low quality, and with poor writing.
* CGI animation has been the pick in many cartoon fans sides since it became more popular than traditional animation in the early-to-mid 2000s. You can guarantee whenever an older cartoon gets a new installment that is CGI (like ''WesternAnimation/BewareTheBatman'' or ''Literature/{{Franklin}}''), or when Creator/{{Disney}} makes a new film and it's ''not'' traditionally animated, there will be a lot of complaining. Some of it comes from people who want diversity in cartoons and wish both traditional and CGI could be popular however there are many who just refuse to watch anything completely CGI.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has a huge amount of fans, but at the same time has garnered a lot of dislike from people who dislike it for being too feminist-friendly, specifically the wide range of body types, controversial events within the fandom, and fashion amongst the characters along with the amount of LesYay in it.
* Educational cartoons get a lot of hate in general, with a few exceptions such as ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'' or ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'' due to their emphasis on being entertaining for reasons other than edutainment. Many are aimed at the 8 -and-under crowd that in itself has a periphery hatedom however a lot of hate comes from both adults and children who hate being educated while trying to be entertained. There are also those who feel the cartoons [[ViewersAreGoldfish belittle their viewers]] or think social ones like ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' are too [[VerySpecialEpisode preachy]].
* By the time ''WebVideo/RebelTaxi'' and ''WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter'' mentioned ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'', the show had finally became a target to this trope. Mainly because of the immature writing and being a stereotype to every adult cartoon ever made.
* While ''WesternAnimation/PeppaPig'' is a preschool show that many parents say is tolerable, it gets this from people who think that the voices are annoying and the animation is ugly. There are also parents who believe that [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2084021/Is-Peppa-Pig-making-toddlers-naughty-Parents-despair-children-copy-cartoon-answering-back.html the show inspires kids to have bad habits]].
* Ever since The Jim Henson Company ventured into {{CGI}} animation, many vocal muppet fans are calling foul at various social media sites, saying that the company should stick to puppets and not venture out to other media. There is no real explanation for this behavior except irrational fear of TheyChangedItNowItSucks.
** ''WesternAnimation/WordParty'', the company's latest production, has got to be the latest victim of this, some of said vocal fans are already comparing it to The Series/{{Teletubbies}} even before the show premiered.

[[folder:Society in General]]
* In the ridiculously polarized 21st-century American political scene, political parties and candidates often get disproportional hatred from the other side - not just for their ideological views, but for ''everything'' about them. Armchair political junkies will, for instance, get riled up about any silly scandal (sex scandals in particular) involving a public official, even though the matter is not really the business of anyone but the parties involved. (When pressed for an explanation, many will declare that [[ThinkOfTheChildren "They're lowering our moral standards!"]] - apparently never considering that the mass media are to a large degree to blame, since stories such as these would fade out a lot sooner if the media didn't excessively cover them.) Others will pounce on a politician for [[NoTrueScotsman "not being a true [X]"]] or for hypocrisy - [[FridgeLogic which makes no sense]] if said politician is from the opposite side, because then that politician is failing to promote an agenda the critic ''already'' despises, making him or her an ally of sorts. Still others will endlessly complain if a politician - whether innocently or not - behaves naively or foolishly, even though, again, such embarrassments hurt the other side a lot more (though "They're making us ''all'' look bad!" is a common response). Since the TheNewTens this becomes a standard in a lot of countries, especially in the Latin America and Europe. One of the best examples is Brazil, which is living an [[UpToEleven ultra]] polarized political scene since 2014 to the point of some people wishing the death of all people from the other side.
* Prior to the full racial integration of American public life in the mid-1960s, race prejudice was arguably this. Due to segregation both formal and ''de facto'', most people did not have to spend time on a day-to-day basis with those who looked radically different from them, and thus prejudiced people should theoretically have been indifferent rather than hostile. That said, paranoia did play a role: many were of the opinion that "sure, ''they'' aren't getting involved with us now, but that could change someday, especially if the government ''forces'' them to do so."
* Same with cliques and teenage bullying. The social life of American high schools is so segregated that the different factions (jocks, nerds, stoners, etc.) need not come into contact with each other except in the classroom (where socializing is discouraged anyway) or at school functions (from which one usually has the ability to opt out). This doesn't stop extreme - and occasionally even deadly - acts of intolerance from being performed.
* Nosy and completely unjustified examples of the PretenderDiss tend to come off this way. Examples include a Native American being told by a non-Native that [[RealityIsUnrealistic "you don't act Indian enough."]] Or a Gentile telling a Jew that they're a bad person for eating a cheeseburger (or some other non-kosher food). [[note]] In fact, an overwhelming majority of modern Jews do not, in fact, keep kosher. [[/note]]
* There are a lot of examples of periphery hatedom in Brazil:
** People who receive aid from social programs, especially the Bolsa Família[[note]]a social program which gives money for poor people. The value is around 150BRL to 300BRL (Brazilian Real) per month. There are strict rules to enter in the program.[[/note]] are hated by most of middle and upper classes people. They think people who receive aid from social programs are lazy and don't want to work (although this is not true since around 70% of people which receive some aid work already) and deserve to suffer because this. This hatedom also extends against poor people and social movements.
** All people which isn't the "Average Joe" type (aka the normal people) or people who hate popular stuff like football or carnival suffer some hatedom from the "Average Joes", especially the nerds and geeks.
