** [[TeamFourStar Even better!]] [[HellsingAbridged Hellsing Ultimate Abridged!]]
* TheHoliday
* Film/HowToTrainYourDragon

* [[DeathNote Light Yagami]]'s glorious death. That bastard can rot in hell for killing Ray Penber and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Naomi]] (as well as for being the reason all of the good characters are death.)
** On a related note, [[spoiler: Matsuda]] [[TakenALevelInBadass taking a level]] by ''shooting Light''.[[note]] My favorite moment of the series.[[/note]]
** And the [[FanNickname Justice Light]] arc.[[note]] The second arc when Light played a MemoryGambit. Too bad he got his [[ItGotWorse memories back....]][[/note]]
* JakAndDaxterThePrecursorLegacy. [[DarkerAndEdgier Less so for its sequels]].
* LuckyStar
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyv6ouzsDBo&feature=em-uploademail This]] [[MassEffect3 ending]] made by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/Archengeia Archengeia]]. And the best part? [[color:red: NO]] [[color:blue: FREAKING]] [[color:green: COLORS]].

* {{Pokemon}}: Mostly the games and the anime. I find most of the manga too strange.
* ThePrincessBride: One of the most quotable and memorable movies every made.
* [[{{Prototype}} [Prototype]:]] One of my favorite games due to it's intricate plot and well-developed lead. It had some [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse problems]], but that's minor. Its sequel fares far worse...
* Film/{{Rambo}}
* RedVsBlue: Time-LINE?! Time isn't made of lines! It is made of circles. That is why clocks are round.
* ResidentEvil: ResidentEvil4 Wii Edition is one of my favorite games of all time, and I love the mythos of the games. [[BigBad Wesker]] is my favorite bad guy of any video game. ([[ResidentEvil5 RE5]] [[CharacterDerailment messed him up!!!]])
* The SlyCooper series.
* WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderman: That has got to be one of the best superhero shows I've ever seen. Such a shame it got cancelled
* SteinsGate: [[MadScientist Mad scientists]]! TimeTravel! [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Dr Pepper]]! [[CatchPhrase Tuturu]]!

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Things that I do not like]]
* AtlasShrugged: I don't even have to read it to know it's [[AuthorOnBoard just an]] AuthorFilibuster of AynRand.
** AynRand: From what I've read about her, she's a total [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]] {{jerkass}}.
* {{Cars 2}}, unfortunately. An ActionizedSequel just doesn't [[DarkerAndEdgier strike the right cord]]. It was terrible, and a horrible sequel to {{Cars}}
* CatcherInTheRye: The absolute worst thing I have ever had to read.
* Certain elements from DarkerThanBlack season 2, like maybe most everything.
* [[JerkSue Brenda]] [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality John]][[ItsAllAboutMe son]] of TheCloser. She's obnoxious, her TrademarkFavoriteFood comes across more as an addiction, she's a bitch to ''everyone'', and she's ''always'' right. Everyone exists to make her look good. MajorCrimes was a better show ''just'' for not having her.
* DeathNote: Dear God, how I hated this show. I needed help to even get through the first arc.
* DistrictNine: I hate that movie. Good effects, but an unlikable protagonist, a CrapsackWorld taken to the extreme, and a lack of anything relating to good in the movie just made me cringe. Almost as bad as CatcherInTheRye.
* {{Facebook}} [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks constantly changing]]. It's reached a point where you have to stop or you'll just piss everyone off.
* FranklinAndBash
* GodOfWar: I can't stand how angry [[JerkAss Kratos]] is and how pointlessly violent the series is. Yeah, you killed your own family, but you don't have to be a douche. [[SuperSmashBrosBrawl You'll get no sympathy from me]].
* How every time you see [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Narnia]] again, everyone you knew from the last book is dead.
* TheInternational: Wow, that was a disjointed mess.
* JamesCameron's [[{{Avatar}} Pocahontas With Giant Space Smurfs IN SPACE]]: Seriously, I don't know why some people (including my family!) love the movie. It has good special effects...and that's it. The story was painfully predictable, and it was a blatant ripoff of Pocahontas [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]] [[{{Jerkass}}James Cameron]]'s pot shot at gamers with saying that SigourneyWeaver smoking represented gamers addicted to video games was also not appreciated.
* JamesCameron, while we're on it. I just don't like the guy. He's made some good movies, but I really just don't have a lot of respect for a guy that claims that Avatar was an [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-x8eayqYYBKc/TXGNnXGruJI/AAAAAAAAAI8/HARn0iU_mpM/s1600/poca2uresized.jpg original]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vm3HWjVESL0 story]]. And that bastard hogged the title "Avatar" for his movie, to the detriment of the ''{{WesternAnimation/Avatar}}'' series.
* [[TedBaxter Kid]] [[MostAnnoyingSound Kraddick]] in the Morning
* LordOfTheFlies: Until the last two chapters, when it was more suspense-thriller. I will never forgive the author for killing [[OnlySaneMan Piggy]].
* {{LOST}}: I wasted four years of my life watching that, only to find out that the writers [[TheyJustDidntCare didn't really care]].
* [[MassEffect Mass Effect 3]]'s [[TheyJustDidntCare terr]][[NoEnding ible]] [[GainaxEnding end]][[ExecutiveMeddling ing]]. I'm ashamed {{Bioware}}.
** The "Extended Cut" DLC [[TrueArtIsAngsty doesn't]] [[AngstWhatAngst really]] [[TakeThatAudience help]] [[WriterCopOut much]].
* The last two minutes of LegendOfKorra. Very DeusExMachina, very MoodWhiplash. And I hate Korra being with [[JerkAss Ma]][[YourCheatingHeart ko]]. TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot by turning the BittersweetEnding that showed the cost of war into a [[DeusExMachina cheap]] HappyEnding just lessened the impact of [[spoiler: Korra losing the ability to bend all of her bending except Air by just restoring it]].
** After cheating on [[SpoiledSweet Asami]] and refusing to take responsibility for kissing Korra, [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic Mako]] has become my [[http://fuck-mako.tumblr.com/antimakoarmada least favorite character]] in the show. And Pema lost some respect in [[HarsherInHindsight hindsight]] due to her terrible advice getting [[RomanticPlotTumor Korra and]] [[YourCheatingHeart Mako]] [[StrangledByTheRedString together]] at the expense of [[DoggedNiceGuy Bolin]] and [[TheWoobie Asami]], who ''Mako is dating''.
* [[{{Prototype2}} [Prototype2]:]] How do you make a sequel to [[{{Prototype}} [Prototype]?]] [[SuddenSequelHeelSyndrome You tu]][[NotAsYouKnowThem rn the]] AntiHero [[RogueProtagonist protagonist]] [[OutOfCharacterMoment of the]] [[CharacterDerailment first game]] [[AGodAmI into the]] [[GenericDoomsdayVillain villain!!!]]
* {{Skyfall}}: Seriously. [[WorstWhateverEver The worst Bond ever]]. Wacky disjointed plot, bad villain, sexism, and more!
* [[{{Uncharted}} Nathan]] [[JerkAss Drake]]
** {{Uncharted}}: Besides it having an [[DesignatedHero unlikable main character]], all of the characters are [[FlatCharacter flat]], the [[ExcusePlot story]] is just [[RandomEventsPlot a string of set pieces]][[note]] No, really. NaughtyDog admitted that they come up with awesome set pieces and try to come up with a story that incorporates them rather than trying to write something interesting.[[/note]] and [[SociopathicHero Drake]] shooting people. Drake is always followed by [[TheVillainMakesThePlot dumb villains]] who always want to use the artifact of doom for weapons purposes. At least the games look pretty and the gameplay is (mostly) solid.
* [[OneMoreDay One More Freaking Day]]
* People who say that [[{{VideoGame/Pokemon}} Erika]] is a lesbian. The "evidence" is just ShippingGoggles in action. Just because Erika is nice to the other female gym leaders means nothing. I've read the script of those scenes. In one, she's trying to help a shy [[ShrinkingViolet Jasmine]] get the confidence to go and do a Pokemon Contest. And for why men aren't allowed: It ''couldn't possibly'' have to do with that DirtyOldMan who's constantly staring inside, [[AllMenArePerverts could it?]]
* {{Prometheus}}: That was a terrible movie. Being co-written by [[{{LOST}} Damon Lindelof]] will do that.
* PuniPuniPoemy: Really, the only thing that I enjoyed about it was [[ShinichiWatanabe Nabeshin]].
* RomeoAndJuliet: [[IdiotPlot Can no one think rationally?!]]
* ShippingGoggles. Especially Yuri Goggles. Some people just try too hard to find "evidence" for their ships. It's a case of people finding evidence to prove their theories rather than deriving theories from evidence.
* Some of the HarryPotter movies. Specifically: Goblet of Fire, [[TheyJustDidntCare Half-Blood]] [[RomanticPlotTumor Prince]], Deathly Hallows. Those books suck too.
* The direction MetalGearSolid took with [[MetalGearSolid2 Sons of Liberty]].
** And even with all the awesome stuff from MetalGearSolid4, I still don't like the story. There [[{{Retcon}} was]] [[ThirtyXanatosPileup just]] [[IdiotPlot too]] [[HumiliationConga much]] [[StoryToGameplayRatio crap]] [[{{Nanomachines}} going]] [[TVGenius on]].[[note]] EFFING MICROWAVE HALL. That wasn't emotional. It was stupid[[/note]] It'd take too long to list all the problems I have with the game. Just the story, though. The gameplay was... [[MetalGearSolid3 pretty good]].
* The ending of {{FLCL}}. So unsatisfying.
* TheLastAirbender: MNightShyamalan, you have lost your movie privileges.
* The Tropers that police the LegendOfKorra YMMV page. Seriously. I haven't seen such ferocious people who won't take any criticism of [[{{Jerkass}} Mako]]. [[TooDumbToLive They try to keep a YMMV page objective]].
* VGCats: Probably the least funny (and most vulgar) webcomic I have ever seen.
* {{Watchmen}}: WAAYYYYY too dark for me. I died inside when I watched the movie.
* [[http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/358/7/1/stocking_is_trollin___by_scourgeotg-d35loa6.jpg Y'all got trolled by Gainax!]]
* [[YouTube YouTube]] and it's recent changes. It just pisses me off.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: {{Fanon}}]]
Happens quite a bit when I don't like what's happening in a show/game, or it's just ambiguous. Here are some notable ones:

* CodeGeass: [[spoiler: Euphemia and Shirley were actually turned into [[MetalGearSolid Cyborg Ninjas]] after [[TearJerker their]] [[HesJustHiding deaths]]. They then went on secret missions, TimeCrisis style! TimeCrisis: Area Eleven!]]
** Or more realistically, [[spoiler: [[WellIntentionedExtremist Lelouch]] really got [[BigBad Char]][[SocialDarwinist les']] Code of {{Immortality}} when he turned into the [[MemeticMutation CHARLES ROCKET!!!]] Even if [[MagnificentBastard Lelouch]] didn't know (if he did have it, [[CrazyPrepared he knew]]) after [[ThanatosGambit his death]], he left with [[MysteriousWaif CC]] to Australia.]]
** Combining the two above, [[spoiler: [[OfficialCouple Euphemia and Suzaku]] got to be together after he became the new Zero. And then [[FanPreferredCouple Lelouch]] [[YourMileageMayVary and]] [[DoggedNiceGirl Shirley]] could be together, with C.C. eventually giving Shirley Geass and her Code of Immortality.]]
** [[TheEveryman Ohgi]] [[spoiler:[[TheMole was really an OSI agent the entire time.]] [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl That's why]] [[AllBlueEntry he]] [[OutOfCharacterMoment suddenly turned]] [[LoveMakesYouDumb against Lelouch]] [[DiabolusExMachina near the end of]] [[OddlyNamedSequel R2]].]]
* DeathNote:
** 1. Light saw the [[MacGuffin Death Note]], picked it up [[ProperlyParanoid without actually touching it]]....and tossed it in the trash. Then he went on to become a respected detective.
** 2. Light's plan to become Kira again at the end of the second arc failed, and remained [[FanNickname Justice]] [[LawfulGood Light]]. [[FanonDiscontinuity The events of the third arc never happen.]]
** 3. Light realized what a boring character he was, and became [[IncrediblyLamePun dead set]] on killing anyone more interesting than himself. Everything just kind of spiraled down.
* AvatarTheLastAirbender[=/=]AvatarTheLegendOfKorra:
** [[ToyShip The Duke]] is Lin Bei Fong's father.
** Given how [[CoolOldGuy Iroh]] [[LikeASonToMe treated]] [[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor Zuko]] and those children in [[DayInTheLimelight The Tale of Iroh]], just think of how he would treat Zuko's daughter. He would treat her like his own granddaughter and be the most awesome great uncle ever. Then you remember that she named her son ''Iroh''. Iroh II is now a walking CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
** The prosecutor at Yakone's trial is Bolin and Mako's grandmother. There is absolutely no evidence to this. Just an idea. As for why we never heard of her.... Yakone did break out of jail......
* AvatarTheLegendOfKorra: As far as I'm concerned, the last several minutes of Endgame [[FanonDiscontinuity didn't happen]]. Everything after Aang tells Korra that she's unlocked her spiritual side didn't happen, and [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic Mako]] realized he was [[TookALevelInJerkass becoming a douche]] and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap apologizes to Asami]] and reconciles with her, realizing that his brother [[DoggedNiceGuy Bolin]][[note]] [[AllThereInTheManual who has an inferiority complex to his brother]][[/note]] is better for Korra and his feelings are merely platonic. Korra then spends the foreseeable future learning her spiritual side and ''eventually'' learning how to [[spoiler: regain her ability to bend Water, Earth, and Fire and restore bending in others]]. And it was Bolin who went out to Korra instead of Mako, [[OutOfFocus because he got shafted]].
** Personally, I'd call season 1 "Book 1: Amon" and rewrite the last 5 episodes. Everything up to episode 7 was great. Amazing, even if the love triangle got in the way of telling the story. But after that, Korra lets Mako go. This ends the LoveTriangle. At this point, Bolin is there to help Korra. I'd start with them growing closer as Mako gets shifted to the background and become TheLancer and Asami's boyfriend. I'd like to have him reveal what happened to him and Bolin after their parents died to Asami, and how they got into Pro Bending. I'd even like to see that he is terrified of his firebending since a firebender killed his parents. Everything would pretty much happen the same, with all the attention and scenes focused on [[RomanticPlotTumor Mako and Korra]] given to [[FanPreferredCouple Bolin and Korra]]. That takes all of the romance drama out. When Korra is kidnapped, Tenzin is the one who gets intense about finding her, while Bolin is worried sick. Korra doesn't unlock all of the Yakone story. I'd rather her do it a little more slowly, using this time to get more in line with her spiritual side. It'd be nice if we saw Korra meditating more throughout episodes 2-7. If she got better glimpses throughout, it wouldn't be so sudden. After the rescue Tenzin carries her to Oogie, with Lin telling everyone to give her space, and Bolin takes care of Korra. She realizes that he really cares about her. Team Avatar would have some sort of bonding moment. Then we get to Amon's {{backstory}}. [[IKnewIt I like him being Tarrlok's brother]], but he should have been a non-bender. His [[FantasticRacism hatred of benders]] should have been from his [[AbusiveParent father]] and Tarrlok's cruelty. His ability to remove bending should be Energybending, which he should have learned from a spirit[[note]] [[CallBack Koh the Face Stealer?]][[/note]]. I'd like to see him use Energybending like Yakone and Tarrlok use Bloodbending. Amon would still remove Korra's bending, Korra wouldn't Airbend, instead activate the Avatar State, defeating Amon ([[KnowWhenToFoldEm who escapes]] and would be assumed dead) and [[DestructiveSavior destroying a good chunk of the building they're in]]. [[MagnificentBastard Amon would use this against her later against her]]. Everything else would still happen, and the Equalists would be defeated. Korra would go out to the cliff and cry, Aang pops up, and tells her that when we're at our lowest we're open up to the greatest change. He would give her hope by telling her that there is a way to get her bending back, but she's going to have to master her spiritual side and basically reconnect to the elements. Not like the [[AvatarTheLastAirbender other series]], but she'd have to get used to not having bending. Bolin would come up to her and ask her who she's talking to. She'd then hug him, and they'd have a tender moment (not kiss, though. That would be saved for later). In season 2 she'd have to learn Air[[note]] then rediscover Water, Earth, Fire[[/note]] and gain the ability to give other people back their bending. Maybe the season finale. It would have been so much better that way.
%%* MassEffect2: What Smudboy says.
%%ME2's main plot should've been a mission against the shadow broker because TIM convinced Shepard into believing he was working with the reapers. Your encounter with the SB or his agents should reveal that he's working with the collectors, which then leads into the next 3/4 of the game, which revolves around protecting the colonies from the collectors which are then revealed to be reaper puppets.
%%The end should be your entire team stealing the shadow broker's ship because it is the only way to the Collector base and then rescuing the collected colonists. The collector threat to humans should begin in the game instead of shep being dropped in.
%%Tela Vasir should have also played a bigger part. Like Saren.
* [[{{Prototype}} [Prototype]:]] I like to think that Alex [[FadeToBlack spared]] [[TheMole Karen Parker]]. She really didn't want to betray him in the first place. She was strong-armed by Blackwatch. And given that Alex has had CharacterDevelopment I think it would be nice for him ''not'' to eat her. Not to mention, what better way to help her get out than to pull a FakingTheDead by making everyone think she was nommed by Alex?.
** [[FanonDiscontinuity And let's just forget]] [[{{Prototype2}} [Prototype2].]] I don't like the idea of Alex Mercer as the [[BigBad bad guy]]. It goes against the CharacterDevelopment that he got in the first game. It also destroys the interesting AntiHero from Prototype 1 by turning him into a GenericDoomsdayVillain. Though his plan was actually pretty well thought out, I would have preferred him to use that plan to ''get rid of'' the virus rather than spread it. I think that would be more in line with what he did in the first game.
%%I like the extraction team that you infiltrate in "Stranger Among Us". While they're jerks, they're actually pretty funny people and work as a team. I genuinely like them more than Heller.
* FireEmblemTellius: Ike [[spoiler: didn't [[WhatAnIdiot kill the Black Knight]] in Radiant Dawn. He realized that his dad [[WhatAnIdiot accepted a duel while he was wounded]], and knew that since the Black Knight is [[GameBreaker ridiculously powerful]], he would be helpful. The Black Knight then [[BeyondTheImpossible one-shots]] [[FinalBoss Ash]][[PhysicalGod era]].]]
* FinalFantasyVII CrisisCore: [[OneManArmy Zack]] calls up Rufus to explain the whole [[WhiteHairedPrettyBoy Sephiroth]] situation. Rufus understands and gets Zack the proper support to take care of Sephiroth. :)
** Alternatively: [[IdiotHero Cloud]] uses a Phoenix Down on [[SacrificialLamb Zack]]. Zack and company then go on [[FinalFantasyVII an adventure.]] Then he gives the [[{{BFS}} Buster Sword]] to someone who deserves it: [[ActionGirl Tifa]].
* ChronoCross [[DroppedABridgeOnHim doesn't]] [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome exist]]. Schala didn't merge with [[CosmicHorror Lavos]] and was reunited with [[WellIntentionedExtremist her brother]].
* HellsingUltimate: [[spoiler: [[BattleButler Walter]] didn't betray Hellsing. He really tricked [[ThoseWackyNazis Millennium]] and killed [[BigBad The Major]] with his RazorWire. [[BloodKnight Alucard]] and [[BadassPreacher Anderson]] realized that fighting each other was pointless when London was [[GodzillaThreshold BEING EATEN BY NAZI VAMPIRES]], [[RivalsTeamUp and fought Millennium]].]] Also, [[spoiler:[[EnsembleDarkhorse Rip Van Winkle]] was spared instead of getting nommed by Alucard.]]
* {{Inception}}: [[spoiler: I'm pretty sure that Cobbs in in the real world at the end. The top wobbled.]]
* SamuraiJack: If you ask me, Jack got back home in the first episode of season 2. All of the other episodes are just is adventures he is remembering.
* AdventureTime: [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] [[PrincessesPreferPink Bubblegum]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Marceline]] '''are not romantically attracted to each other!!''' Goodness people, take off the [[ShippingGoggles Yuri Goggles]].
** Marceline is over [[WhoWantsToLiveForever 1000 years old]], so she'd naturally value friendships that she has. [[NoodleIncident Something happened between Princess Bubblegum and Marceline a while ago]] and now they're not on the best of terms. But I'm sure it was ''not'' romantic.
** After seeing [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110923021435/adventuretimewithfinnandjake/images/0/05/What_Was_Missing_promo_by_RS.jpg this picture]] done by Rebecca Sugar, some FridgeLogic set in. Several years ago, Princess Bubblegum would have been much younger, maybe around Finn's age (or younger) when whatever happened between them happened. I'm guessing that their relationship was sisterly, kinda like how [[MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight and Cadence]] were when Twilight was a filly. [[NoodleIncident Something happened]], and I think Marceline didn't realize what she did, but she pissed off Princess Bubblegum (or her family/the kingdom) so a rift grew between them.
** To be honest if there's any "proof" of it in season 5 I'm ignoring it since I dropped the show due to SeasonalRot.
* LegendOfZelda: Stuff that I've thought for a long time.
** [[TwilightPrincess TP Link]] [[IKnewIt descended from OoT Link]]
** [[IKnewIt The]] [[SpiritAdvisor Hero's Shade]] [[IKnewIt was OoT Link.]]
** [[IKnewIt Kaebora Gaebora was Rauru.]]
* FullMetalAlchemistBrotherhood: [[spoiler: Fuhrer]] [[ShipperOnDeck Grumman]] works things out so that [[FanPreferredCouple Mustang and Hawkeye]] can be together [[spoiler: after his ascension to power]].
* FinalFantasyTheSpiritsWithin: Really, I feel that [[spoiler: everyone's souls were returned to their bodies (at least the ones that were taken in the attack that [[KnightTemplar General]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Hein]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone caused]]). So we get [[DeadPanSnarker Jane]], [[CasanovaWannabe Neil]], Ryan, and Gray back after Gray's HeroicSacrifice.]] I was seriously thinking this was going to happen, then the credits came up and I felt kinda empty.
* MetalGearSolid: Everything after the [[MetalGearSolid first game]] is FanonDiscontinuity to me. After Shadow Moses Island, [[RetiredBadass Snake]] and [[ActionGirl Meryl]] got together and lived together happily in Alaska. I told you I like happy endings.
** Also, Snake [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim shot Revolver Ocelot the first time he met him]]. When the man took a full minute to twirl his [[WeaponOfChoice revolver]], ''dump out the bullets,'' and say how awesome it is.
* TheAvengers: Until [[JossWhedon someone]] says otherwise [[spoiler: Agent Coulson [[HesJustHiding is still alive]]. [[MagnificentBastard Fury]] lied about it to get the Avengers to work together. He's been confirmed to be in other movies]], but this is JossWhedon [[TrollingCreator we're talking about]], so it's up in the air.
** [[IKnewIt I WAS]] [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT]]
** And then the show ended up sucking :/
* DoctorWho: Ok. [[spoiler: Amy and Rory don't DIE. That was lame, and a blatant DiabolusExMachina. In my own world, they decided to stop travelling with The Doctor after the Year of the Slow Invasion, and stayed in their normal lives.]]
* [[ClashOfTheTitans Wrath Of The Titans]]: [[spoiler: Zeus]] didn't die. When Perseus gets [[spoiler: Zeus away from Chronos, and to the army, he gets everyone to pray to Zeus, who regains enough strength to go [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kick butt]] [[BashBrothers with Hades]]]].
* CowboyBebop: If you ask me [[spoiler: Spike is still alive. As is Julia, who is able to survive the gunshot wound. He's able to get the crew back together after they split up. It's reasonable that he could have gotten to a hospital after his fight with Vicious. But now he has to deal with the triad....]]
* ResidentEvil5: [[ChessMaster Wesker]] didn't really die. The Wesker that was shot in the head with a rocket launcher [[ActuallyADoombot was just a]] [[CloningGambit clone of him.]] The reason the clone was injecting himself with Uroboros was because he was unstable, and it [[AGodAmI drove him crazy]]. Spencer was full of crap when he gave Wesker's "true backstory." That's why he got a [[ShutUpHannibal fist through the chest]]. The real [[CrazyPrepared Wesker]] is sitting comfortably in his chair [[SinisterSurveillance watching all of the protagonists]] via satellite.
* Left4Dead: Bill doesn't die in a HeroicSacrifice. He get's everyone out safe, then when everyone is morning him, he comes flying towards them DualWielding M16s while riding a flaming Tank screaming "YOU THINK THAT WOULD KILL ME? A FEW ZOMBIES?! I'VE BEEN THROUGH [[VietnamWar NAM]]!! THIS IS NOTHING!!"
* MetroidOtherM: Likewise, [[spoiler: Adam]] didn't die in his HeroicSacrifice. After [[spoiler: Going into Sector Zero, and Samus is all like "NOOOO!! ADAM! NOOO!!" Adam [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace bursts out of Sector Zero not wearing his helmet]] shooting any Metroids left and flying back to the Bottle Ship.]] Samus would be shocked, with [[spoiler: Adam]] replying "You thought that I was going to die? It'll take more than that to kill me! [[spoiler: [[CatchPhrase Any objections, Lady?]] ]]"
* TengenToppaGurrenLagann: [[spoiler: Kamina didn't die. Simon and Kamina took care of Thymilph together. They discover Nia when practicing some moves, and Simon gets thrown too far. Things continue and Lordgenome is defeated. NIA IS NOT THE MESSANGER FOR THE ANTISPIRAL.]] Happy endings!

[[WMG: Shipping]]
I have a rule about shipping. I really only like parings that make sense in context of the story or how they are portrayed. This doesn't mean that it needs to be canon, but it should at least have some evidence to back it up or at least have potential. Ships like [[CodeGeass Lelouch/Shirley]], [[AvatarTheLegendOfKorra Bolin/Korra]], and [[LegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Link/Maron]][[note]]Each with varying degrees of canon proof[[/note]] are ones I support. Though I do have a few crackships. I don't hate anyone for shipping differently, and [[DieForOurShip I don't hate characters for getting in the way]]. It's a fun thing to do, and we should respect it, no matter how absurd it can get[[note]] coughcough ZUTARA cough[[/note]]. Though I don't appreciate people

* CodeGeass: [[CosmicPlaything Lelouch]][=/=][[NiceGirl Shirley]] and [[TheAce Suzaku]][=/=][[WideEyedIdealist Euphemia]]. I really relate to [[CannotSpitItOut Shirley]] more than [[MysteriousWaif C.C.]] or [[FieryRedhead Kallen]]. I really think that Lelouch and Shirley were the best couple. Heck, they even dated in the second season. [[OfficialCouple Euphy/Suzaku]] was canon, but I really liked them together.
* AvatarTheLastAirbender[=/=]AvatarTheLegendOfKorra:
** Personally, I ship [[TagalongKid The Duke]][=/=][[LittleMissBadass Toph]], [[LadyLooksLikeADude Smellerbee]][=/=][[SilentBob Longshot]], [[EnsembleDarkhorse Jin]][=/=][[TroubledButCute Zuko]], and [[GirlNextDoor On Ji]][=/=][[NiceGuy Aang]]. And after [[AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise The Promise]] part 2, I feel the need to say [[ActionGirl Suki]][=/=][[TheSmartGuy Sokka]].
*** Jin and Zuko is interesting since we only see her in [[DayInTheLimelight Zuko's Tale]] in [[http://www.digavatar.com/avatar-tv-chapter-15-tales-of-ba-sing-se.html Tales of Ba Sing Se]]. She asks Zuko on a date, and [[ShipperOnDeck Iroh accepts for him]]. It's incredibly awkward. It's also really cute. I like Mai, and [[PortmanteauCoupleName Maiko]], but I prefer Jin and Zuko.
*** On Ji and Aang was also a one off thing from [[http://www.digavatar.com/avatar-tv-chapter-2-the-headband.html The Headband]] (one of my favorite episodes). She's just a normal, nice girl who happens to be from the Fire Nation. She obviously has a crush on Aang (going under the name Kuzon), and I feel is a better fit for Aang than Katara.
*** [[ToyShip The Duke and Toph]] is something I didn't think about at first. But they have [[http://moonchild419.deviantart.com/art/The-Duke-and-Toph-theory-292722898 some moments]] in "Day Of Black Sun Part I" and a hug in "Sozin's Comet Part IV: Avatar Aang," but it's shipping bait. It's really easy to see them together.
** And [[ToyShip The Duke]] is Lin Bei Fong's father.
** I ship [[DoggedNiceGuy Bolin]][=/=][[ActionGirl Korra]] and [[SpoiledSweet Asami]][=/=][[TheLancer Mako]].
*** There was a ''lot'' of crap that went on in TheLegendOfKorra, but the worst of it was the relationships. I really liked [[ShipTease the date that Bolin took Korra on]] in "The Spirit of Competition" and felt that they had a lot in common. The show goes out of its way to show just how well they get along, only to throw it away. [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6qd7oOPh31qk9ry0o1_500.png There were plenty of moments]]. Hopefully it will happen later on down the line.
*** No matter what happened, I like Mako[=/=]Asami. Even though Mako was [[CharacterDerailment derailed]] after episode 4 ("A Voice In The Night"), he and Asami had a good relationship until he started becoming [[StrangledByTheRedString obsessed with Korra]]. If he never showed interest in Korra, then (like Bolin and Korra) they could have had a sweet relationship that could have been [[CharacterDevelopment positive]] for both of them.
* ResidentEvil: I like Jill[=/=]Chris. TrueCompanions. Been together for years. Apparently it never occurred to them.
** Leon[=/=]Claire. I'm not a fan of [[DatingCatwoman Ada]], and Claire happens to be my favorite character in the series. Leon and Claire just seem better together.
* {{Batman}}: [[{{Batman}} Bruce]] and {{Zatanna}}. I really started liking this after the episode "Zatanna" of [[BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The Animated Series]]. I just like Zatanna a lot.
** [[{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson]] and [[{{Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon]].
** [[{{Robin}} Tim]] [[Comicbook/RobinSeries Drake]] and [[{{Robin}} Stephanie]] [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl2009}} Brown]]. Honestly they're just so cute together. I think they're relationship is probably the best in the Batman universe.
* WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderman: [[TwiceShy Peter/Gwen]]. It's so frustrating that [[JerkassWoobie Harry]] cockedblocked Peter by using Gwen's kindness to [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate her]] into staying with him. [[OfficialCouple Peter and Gwen]] should have gotten together, but [[AFateWorseThanDeath now that the show's cancelled we may never find out what happens]].
* LegendOfZelda:
** OcarinaOfTime: Link ended up with Malon. [[TwilightPrincess TP Link]] [[IKnewIt descended from OoT Link]], and he's a [[FarmBoy ranch hand]].
** SkywardSword: Link and Zelda. I never ship this because it usually doesn't make sense, but in SkywardSword, their relationship just [[ShipTease so sweet]].
** TwilightPrincess: Link and Hena. Her sarcastic nature and tendency to point out [[LampshadeHanging typical player behavior]] would make her and Link a cute couple. There's also the fact that she [[http://coolman229.tumblr.com/post/56495572584/so-i-saw-something-online-and-i-checked-it-out takes Link out on the boat she reserves for her boyfriends....]]
** I also ship [[OcarinaOfTime Saria]] and [[WindWaker Fado]], a ship I've dubbed Sageshipping. I started shipping it when I read that one strategy guide says that Fado was a personal friend of the Hero of Time. I thought they'd be cute.
* {{CLANNAD}}: Tomoya and [[StudentCouncilPresident Tomoyo Sakagami]]. Not because she's an ActionGirl, but because she's so kind and motherly. [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair The gray hair didn't hurt]]. I really liked her the most out of all the girls in Tomoya's harem. Yukine Miyazawa is a close second.
* AdventureTime: I like [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] [[MadScientist Bubblegum]][=/=][[ChronicHeroSyndrome Finn]]. I wasn't a big fan of [[PlayingWithFire Flame Princess]] at first, but I've warmed up to her. I kinda like Flame Princess[=/=]Finn because their relationship is so sweet.
* TengenToppaGurrenLagann: [[CrazyAwesome Kamina]][=/=][[FriendlySniper Yoko]]. In my [[{{Fanon}} idealized version]] of the show, they can ''[[EsotericHappyEnding actually]]'' [[EsotericHappyEnding be together]].
** [[CloudCuckooLander Nia]][=/=][[TheAce Simon]]. In my [[{{Fanon}} idealized version]] of the show, they can ''[[EsotericHappyEnding actually]]'' [[EsotericHappyEnding be together]].
* TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya: [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]][=/=][[RealityWarper Haruhi]]. I know a lot of people like [[EmotionlessGirl Yuki]], but I'm not that big of a fan. And despite the fact that I really like [[InnocentFanserviceGirl Mikuru]], her being a TimeTraveler could cause some problems. Even if a lot of people see Haruhi as an unrepentant {{Jerkass}}, I think she's had some good CharacterDevelopment and there's at least some basis for a relationship.
* InitialD: Iketani and Mako. Hardcore. It's so depressing that relationships don't work out in that show. They like each other, but due to PoorCommunicationKills, he blew her off. Even though he realized his mistake and she still liked him, we don't get a resolution.
** Keisuke and Kyoko. Too bad he was too much of a jerk to actually accept her feelings. She chose him over racing, [[SeriousBusiness and in this show]], that's pretty darn big. But nooooo. He wants to focus on racing.
** Itsuki and Kazumi. This is a case of NiceGuysFinishLast, since despite him ''always'' being nice to her, she still chooses her [[MayDecemberRomance much older ex]] without a thought, ''right after'' saying she'd like to be with Itsuki. I think the writer of the manga didn't like romance.
* {{Sherlock}}: Sherlock and Irene. It's been a long time since I've shipped two characters so hard.
* AttackOnTitan: I originally tried to not ship in this...but I ended up doing it anyway.
** Eren and Historia: This was a crackship that snuck up on me, and surprisingly ended up not being crack at all in later chapters.
** Levi and Hanji: This is probably one of the most obvious ships in the series. Their interactions are kind of adorable.
** Annie and Reiner: I started shipping them when I first saw episode 4 of the anime. I only started shipping them more later on haha.
** Bertholdt and Ymir: Another crackship until they allied together in later chapters. It may seem weird to ship Bertholdt and Ymir when Ymir has canon feelings towards Historia, but I just really love them.
** Mike and Nanaba:
** Sasha and Jean: For some reason I have magical shipping powers because any crack ship I had ended up not be
* {{Fire Emblem}}:
** [[FireEmblemAwakening Awakening]]: Oh boy I have a lot
*** Frederick x Sumia. I love them so much. They're a very sweet couple. My favorite in the game.
*** Cordelia x Stahl
*** Chrom x Anna (with male Avatar)
*** Chrom x Fem!Robin
* VideoGame/Borderlands2: May0 (Zer0 and Maya). I played this game for five minutes and I shipped the hell out of them. This ship does things to me.

[[folder: Good Dubs]]
For the whole SubbingVersusDubbing debate, I find the argument of "purists" rather elitist. There are good dubs, there are bad dubs, and here are a few of my favorites:

* AxisPowersHetalia: It sure beats trying to read [[WallOfText all the text]] or understand the Japanese humor. It's also [[{{Woolseyism}} freaking hilarious.]]
* CodeGeass
* CowboyBebop
* ExcelSaga
* FullMetalAlchemist
* FullMetalPanic
* GGundam: Sure, it might not be the greatest in the world, but come on! It was wonderfully [[WorldOfHam Hammy]].
* HellsingUltimate
* KazeNoStigma: The voices were well-chosen, and if you watch it with subs, then you can get the best of both worlds.
* LuckyStar
* OuranHighSchoolHostClub
* PaniPoniDash: You need subtitles for all of the Japanese writing, but I didn't get a lot of the jokes because they're in the subtleties of speech. Watching the dub was a necessity for me.
* SamuraiPizzaCats
* TengenToppaGurrenLagann
* TheFamiliarOfZero: [[CristinaValenzuela Cristina Vee]] as Louise? I think yes.
* TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya: With [[JohnnyYongBosch Lelouch]] as [[MrExposition Koizumi]] and [[CrispinFreeman Jeremiah Gottwald]] as [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]], how can you really go wrong?
* {{Trigun}}
