YMMV: The Outskirts Battledome

Being a site that specializes in debating, there are an number of things that people disagree on.


  • Acceptable Targets: Naruto (ironically), Twilight, Bleach, the list goes on...
    • None of them have anything on Chachamaru Karakuri. She seems to be the most acceptable target of them all.
      • It's worth noting that while the Acceptable Targets list is indeed huge, many respected OBDers tend to be fans of some of those series and understand why those series are often picked on.
    • Narutoforums itself is an acceptable target of OBDers. Be it the members, mods, or the site itself.
    • Other VS sites that tend to have misinformation (or just arrogant fanboys) are also laughed at. Most notably Moviecodec.
  • Broken Base: Tends to vary from time to time like most internet communities. Be it about certain series, the content on the Wiki, etc.
  • Fan Wank: Happens regularly. Usually when a new feat comes out for a popular series.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Quite a few people just join Narutoforums to be a part of the OBD. And many people just read the wiki for the articles on some of the drama that has happened over the years.
  • Memetic Badass: The OBD Cosmics.
    • Endless Mike's Marka Ragnos is the most memorable.
    • Worth noting that the use of Memetic Badasses in an actual debate is looked down upon.
  • Memetic Mutation: OBD HIVEMIND
  • Opinion Myopia: One major point of contempt by detractors is that the OBD (and the Wiki) is full of this.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: The Torikoverse, while not necessarily disliked, is looked down upon by some for having lower standards of speed compared to its fellow Shōnen series (which are Supersonic - Hypersonic on average), effectively being a watered-down version of One Piece and Dragon Ball. Recent calcs, however, showed decent results for destructive capacity, from double digit megatons towards single-digit PETATONS. In addition, they've been getting some more decent speed calcs reaching into MACH 1000.
    • The infamous "Zarbon's Crater" as well. For a long time, it was only a few hundred-thousand cubic meters in volume, and then the Rookie dubledolix09 stepped in and did some corrections to it. The result came into being from multi-city block to low town level (literally very few appeared to notice it, though).
    • D.Gray-Man wasn't well-liked as well, until Avant stepped in it started to get more respect.
  • Tear Jerker: Ultimecia's soulful and heartfelt love letter to the OBD in the form of a versus thread; a tribute to Crimson Dragoon who wished to see more Exalted.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: How quite a few people see the wiki after several of it's most infamous pages were forced to be removed due to complaints.
    • The current state of the OBD is seen this way to some members as well. Lampshaded by the opening page [1]:
      PSA - The Current OBD is far shittier than what this wiki makes it out to be.
    • The archiving of several threads in the section.
